Until I Informed Mrs. Trent that I Was going away as soon ae I was well I had no Intention of doing so. But all at once, little book, I found that I was beating against a ctge. I must get away from It all, wl.\h just my baby, so that I might adji*t myself ι to the life that must be mine In the future. Remember, Iltlte book, that -when I came to thla conclusion I had re solved never again to confide In you. It seemed to me that you were tho friend of my married life and that was over. But a month or two ago I found among Dick's papers a book which he had dedicated to me. It wae a book in which he had written his side of the story which I have told to you. It seemed to mo then that In all fairness to him I must write down what tie had written so that you could counsel with mo as you have always counselled. Dick's ideas were very surprising and yet they are juet what a man would think of the episodes and ex periences of married life. Yon see, little book, I am not yet able to con ceive that Dick Is not. I wonder If the great enigma of life affects all people in this way. Honestly, I am not yet grieving much, for my mind refuses to realise that Dick Is dead. I find myself saying, "I must tell Dick this," or "I wonder what Dick will think of that?" I am so glad that 1, was saved the horror of the days that passed be tween Dick's death and the time when his body was consigned to earth. I do not think that I could have stood the kind of thing we had at the funeral of Mr. Trent and I am Inexpressibly glad that I never look id upon Dick's dead face. The last look I had from him was a glance of lore from hla living, though fast fall ing eyes. All the while I am writing this, little book, my brain says it Is not true—he is not gone away forever. Perhaps some time will come the realization of this great and inevita ble fact but now my mind says "He will come back—he will come back." Even Mollle seems to think I should wear black, but I think It would be cowardly to do the very thing I have so often condemned In others, when I find the same condi tions surrounding me. No. little book, as long as I lire, no matter how much I may grieve, no matter liow lonely I feel, yet I tell you I will not force my grief and loneliness on others. I still am Margie Waverly and I still hate a moral coward. Who am I, that I should be exempt from the griefs and sorrows of the common lot? 1 have looked life straight In the face, as you know, little book, and accepted It. Perhaps, in a little while I shall realize what death looks like, when he comes stealing in and takes away the one who means moet to yon. I wonder what makes me so numb. Why can I not realize it now? Even when Jim Edie cajne over to consult j with me about the business I said un thinking, "Let us wait until we can | consult Dick." Jim looked at me for a moment as though he thought I had suddenly gone mad especially when I smiled and said, "If you lave me. Jim, let me talk of Dick as though he were not dead. We won't whitewash his faults or unduly magnify his virtues. We'll Just keep expecting him to come in. and jolly un a little." I don't want to cannonize him. I could never have loved a saint, and a saint would never have loved me. I just want the great human personal ity that was his to wrap me about. I want to feel the sting of it some times as well as its comfort. Oh, lit tle book, I just want Dick, my Dick, with all his faults, his foibles. Great God of the universe, give me back my man. (To be continued) Today He Celebrate St. George, England's Patron Saint. "St. George for Merrle England" will be the cry today In Britain and throughout the empire, for thle is the festival of the militant patron saint of John Bull's tight little island. There has long been much confu sion in regard to St George and his career, and some of the accounts of hie life are far from flattering. Ac cording to Edward Gibbon, the great English historian, this saint flourish ed in the fourth century. Gibbon de scribes him as having been born in a fuller's shop In Cllicia. By his hu mility he ingratiated himself with his masters and gradually rose from ob scurity. He was given a contract for supplying soldiers with bacon, and by adopting methods not unlike those of some American packers in the Spanish war, he acquired a fortune. It is further claimed that, after his dis-_ honest methods were discovered he" had to flee the country. Becoming a convert to Arianism, he was made archbishop of Elexandrla. His ava rice still unsatisfied, he is said to have caused the pagan temples to be looted, while he oppressed both Christians and pagans by imposing heavy taxes, the money going into his own coffers. The people revolted and drove him out, but he was restored to the arch bishopric by the army of Constantl nus. The accession of Julian resulted in George's downfall. He was thrown into prison, but a hob of infuriated Alexandrians dragged him from his cell and killed him. The body was carried In triumph through the streets and was then cast into the sea. The death of George at the hands of the pagans made him a martyr in the sight of the Arians. He was said to have fought with the crusaders, and he became generally recognized as the patron saint of soldiers, of arms and chivalry. He was said to have slaugh tered a dragon In cave on the left bank of the Danube, where it divides Hungary from Serbia. The cracas has remained to fhis day in the cavern, according to the superstitious natives, and they declaro that the deadly flies which are to be found in that section have their breeding place in the body of the dragon. It is certain that these flies, which kill horses and oxen, ap pear to come every summer from this cave, often rising from the cavern's mouth in such swarms that th<.y re semble a column of smoke. Most religious historians disagree with Gibbon's account of St George, and declare that the patron saint of 'England was another St. George, who lived about sixty years before the ba con contractor. The real saint, if is declared, was a Greek, born at Lydda, not far from Jerusalem, and carried Christianity to England about the year 290. Later he returned to Syria and slew a dragon at Beirut. He was a staunch defender of the persecuted Christians of Tliessalonica. This St. George was η soldier, and Ills valor »on recognition at a later day by two feiths, the Christians honoring him a» ît.
