THE TIMES: GREENVILLE, MISSISSIPPI. SATURDAY, MARCH 9, 1901,
I Tte Transformation Scene 1 HAT rUe am I to do. I.ott 1 VY W'liat can I do?" With BDL'i v jjcvtiir (iordon Hyde Hiinj; him' rril out of Lit chair ami paced up and !ohd the room. His wifr rested both 4'Hkk on thr table, watching him nith her atuall. poinlrJ chiu between her hands, and her tangled, pale ye. low . Jiair straggling over her face. "If I stay her ve shall all starve,1 continued younjr Hyde. ''What do you ay, Brabazon? tiottie can't be so aolf ish a to stop me. God knows I've dona jnv btt!" Tec! Brubazoo, another member of the Miia'1 cotnpaey to which Mr. and ilrs. Hyce belonged, was a quiet, heavy -voting in .111. with a broad, indefinite face, lie g!anced quickly at Lottie as her h uk band ?poVe. He had known her from the time when she was an over worked littie pantomime imp. Her childhood had been embittered by pov. erty and hardship, but from the day when the met Gordon Uyde the world had more or les warn a tint of rose color. She had been married three years, and was only 22. They were now playing-, a Lottie put it, a joint in the sum. Is, meaning an engagement together in little towna. lint (iordon had reeently received airly good offer for a tour in South Africa. This was several yearn ago. bi fore the war, or rumor of war. fio'don was anxious and unhappy at . leaving his wife a.nd child; but at the fflire time there was a wild, uneon ', -5f (" delight in his heart at the nppor tiiDitv to throw aside the immediate tr i b , f of a trupjrlinjr, hand-to-mouth fxntin'c "I Can't think you ought to take it!" fa i -!

Iff too hard I can't, can't bear i: !" He broke -in a lo g. repressed pas sion of disappointed r::ge, and rested hi heid cn hi arm :.g linot the mantel piece. The ehi'd b. pan to cry dismally, and Ted Krabazon put him (rently down. "Buck op. old hoy! One kid is enough la s family. S'!cng. Lottie! I don't rhlne in domeetic drama!" "Of eoorse yon mtift go. dear! It's s Ane chance. Come along, Wallie." She stooped asd pickwi up her baby. "There, give dad kiss! We shall get o all right." "Oh, IT! send yen half my screw from he first week, Lottie! We've always gone halves, haven't we, darling? I don't car how I rough it!" Lottie, who had been "roughing;" tt oil her life, only smiled fondly. For three years he had unconsciously relied on her strength of character and pur pose, thoroughly believing all the time in her utter dependence upon himself, "I wish I could go with you," she sighed, twisting her thin fingers round his hand. The longing tone of her voice, the tears in her drooping eyelashes and the weight of the child as he took it out of Iter arms suddenly smote him with sense of responsibility; be drew her tangled hair and pale face against bl breast. "Ton must be a brave little women ! he said, kindly, hut ignoring her sym pathy of a few minutes ago. "You must try to be self-reliant. I shall a! ways be sanding you money and things" this waa vague, but it made him feel better "so you must wait till I come baeh, and all our ill ruck will be changed." For more than six months after Gor don bad sailed sway Ted Brabazon saw aa9 heard nothing of Lottie Hyde. Then he met her In London at a the atrical agent's office. "Lottie! Well, upon my word! What's the matter?" Her whole appearance was changed, She was not only white and, worn, but hr lioht dress mad summer hat were ' noticeably faded and poor. She com menced to talk ararriedljr about little Wallle. "But yourself, Lottie?" "Oh, I'm oil right. I've been at work off and on ever since I saw you last, Ted." "Hsre you heard from Gordon?" he asked. "Of course," she exclaimed. "Re's getting on famously!" "This hardly looks like it!" sale' Brabason, lowering his voice and touching her faded dress and shabby little lace caps. Tin worried over you dear," he continued, slowly looking up tX her wiu bis land, questioning eye. "I told you I've been in work!" she answered, gayly. "And there's always dorfton to fall back upon! " with a touch at pride. Cant ask yon to come and see me; I've only got one room at pres ent. I may go oat with This World of Woe' in the autumn, fiood-bv, old bay." Brabaaon was sorely puzzled. Be did no know where she lived. She had spokes gayly of her husband's success, tout there was evidently no prospect of hta return. At night, after their easual meeting in the agent's office, Ted. lin gered by the stage door of the theater, -wjiere Lottie waa, aa aha told him, "stalking on." "Walking ea! A guinea a week!" thought Brabaaem He eww her coma ant, and followed, unseen, as sh harried away. It was no rr y? aw ! IP x garden v IN ft K A $ $ AND $ GREENHOUSE . FVRSALKAT THE MISSISSIPPI A. & M.

"Tcdv hsartl l;I:n. urn! gave me one frightened glsncs: t en, turning to his wife snrf snlri: 'Would yon lesve mother and I alone a little while; there's something I want to tell her;' and, as the door closed upon her, and I knelt down and clasped bim in my arms, all the months and years he had seemed to be growing from me were bridged nvr r Teddy was still my boy. ! "For a little time he held me close; I neither spoke, and I was almost be I ginningto think be had forgotten what he wanted to tell me, when be said: 'Mother, I can't go out of the world wtri n.y crime on another man's head. , I took the money they accused Tom of taking, I should be where be Is' I now. Torn knew it; be wouldn't tell; I onee. T thoufht I'd be brave and con fess nil, bnt Tom said: 'Jfo; I've al ways been the black sheep, and anoth er black mark to the score won't hurt like one against your name father couldn't stand that;' and, like a cow ard, I let him go. He's been punished for my crime; but if he has suffered one-hundredth part what I have all these years, I pity him, I pity him! Oh I mother, speak to me; say you for give me, for I was crying: 'My poor Tom; my poor Tom!' And then I kissed Teddy, and said: 'I do forgive you, dear; and God will, too. for He has seen your suffering;' and then Teddy fell back on the pillows and smiled, and I was left alone. "After the funeral I took the train for the town where Tom was, with a heart half sad, half glad. It was hard to lose "Teddy, to know be had not been the boy I had always believed him; but to have Tom home again well, I couldn't be his mother and not feel glad. So I went to tbe prison, and asked for Tom. 'Isn't he with you?' the superintendent said: Tie was pardoned some time ago.' Tartloned!' I answered; he never should have been sentenced; but where is he?' 'I supposed he'd gone home., Henry,' ha said, to a young man at the desk, 'tell the warden to send Ko. 17 to me.' And in a few minutes No. 17 came io; and, when I saw him, I couldn't keep the tears back for pity, and the thought of my Tom looking just like him. And the superintendent said: 'There, there, my dear lady, we'll find your boy if we can. Bussell, you and Tom Haines were friends; can you tell us his whereabouts? 'Ko. sir; all he said to me was: "Good-hy, old man; I'm going to change my name and start in agsiD." 'Iid be ever ssy to you he was guilty? 'No, sir; he stuck to it he wasn't; but it's my opinion ha knew who was, and wouldn't tell; for he was a fins fellow, even If be was a jail bird. "'No, madam; I wish I could; but if yon ever And him, tell him how glad eld Bussell was that he always believed him innocent." "For years I've hoped and looked and waited for him. I go from town to town. Uy sell ing m- email wares I manage to keep soul and body together. Every night I pray for my boy's return; every morning I waken with the hops that to-day I may find him. And, now I must go. Ton have beard my story, and I thank yon. Perhaps my boy may be waiting for me now; perhaps and this is the cross Tom gave me," she said, holding out the small emblem in trembling hands. "No, mother; he's fonnd you," and she turned to be clasped in the arms of tbe man who had entered unseen, while the twins circled ronnd them, crying nd shouting: la she oar real ly grandma, papa; ear really grand ma!'"
