THE BEACON AND THE WRECK. lllfj norm wma was gaining 1 I strength as the day advanced. The orchard was a mass of tossing boughs as 1 looked down upon it from my window. Those trees must have been planted by an in spired geometrician, for the design was 6uch that whatever point of observa tion might be selected there was al ways one tree, and only one, between the observer and the lodge. It seemed perfectly easy to move a little wray and get a clear view, but at the precise in stant when any given tree passed from the line of vision another interposed. The tranches hung low, and the lodge was i a hummock, so that a waving green veil always fluttered before it. There was no strong temptation to look that way. for Miss Scott's side of the lodge was the nearer to the house, and Miss Scott, by all accounts, was not a romantic object. Nevertheless I had acquired a habit of staring down Into the orchard, and on this particular day the high and rising wind so tossedj the boughs that I had a better view than usual. I saw Miss Scott sitting by the door, and I made her out to be angular, awkward and well past her J youth, yet these were guesses, ror tne distance was considerable and my glimpses momentary as the green bil lows of the orchard rose and fell. Presently I saw Jimmy Lamoine go down the crooked path, and I was not surprised. lie exchanged a few words with Miss Scott and then dodged round the porner of the house, passing beyond my vision. Half an hour later I was startled to see him coming along the carriage way that led from the road. There was, however, no mystery in his return by this route, for the "lay of the land" was such that he could have passed from the lodge to the road with out being visible from any part of the house, unless perhaps the roof. He paused just outside my window and seemed about to deliver a remark of tremendous importance; then he changed his mind and went on without saying anything. This was one of Jimmy's favorite methods of making himself obnoxious; it was a rite in his religion of mystery, and it sometimes grieved me sorely when he thus an noyed me to be reminded of his sister. As for the physical resemblance be tween them which Lucy Arn had men tioned, I had never been able to see it; but I was beginning to be painfully aware that there was a certaiu similar ity in their ways. It was grotesque the likeness of a fearful caricature. That which was with Anna a pretty air of reticence, the veiling of some sweet fancy, a delicious riddle, appeared in Jimmy as arrant trickery. Thus will a familj- trait often disclose itself in varied form in the dif ferent individuals, and be3'ond a doubt the prudent may now and then gain valuable warnings in this way. But I did not wish to be warned; I did not believe that it was necessary, and many a time I could most willingly have laid a hand upon James not in the way of kindness when he performed before my eyes this dire mockery of his sister. Not long after he passed the window I saw him going down into the orchard again, this time accompanying Lucy Ann and carrying in a big basket the luncheon for Miss Scott and the girl. I observed that Lucy Ann took out the portion that was Miss Scott's and that Jimmy then carried the basket around to the other side. So Lucy Anu did not serve the girl; did not see her at all. What could this mean?.

I jotted tlown this point for future reference. 1 had not yet made up my mind that the girl was Sibyl; that is, I had said so to myself, but something within me had refused belief, lteally I could as easily believe that Miss Jones was Sibyl. The basis of this confusion was that elusive memory such as drives one distracted when a name dances upon the tip of the tongue for hours, even for days, and will not be uttered. The girl reminded me of somebody, and It seemed that if I could but think of that person all doubt would vanish. It did not vanish when I thought of Sibyl. I spent the afternoon In the woods alone, "a book of verses underneath the bough," no loaf of bread, no jug of wine, no girl. Yet, though lacking the best part of old Omar's prescription, I did not waste the hours. The trees sang well in the wind, and the odors of the wood were heady as wine. They lured me away from my book; they made me walk many miles without wreariness, indeed with an access of strength for every step, and when at last I strode across the fields toward Mrs. YVitherspoou's, with the Western sun giving me a half mile of shadow, I viewed that part of the house which held the kitchen with a certain uneasi- ness. At that distance it did not look big enougn. But no man will starve at Mrs. With erspoon's, no matter what his appetite may be. She fed us amply and well that evening, and I Avent forth after the meal exceedingly content. The breeze had gone down with the sun, and the lake seemed to be smooth as a mirror when I viewed it from the head of the long path. It invited me, and not in vain. There were half a dozen boats on the strip of beach, and I chose the one that pleased me best. It was a rule at Mrs. Witherspoon's to follow one's im pulses in such matters. I judged that a person whose impulses proved to be defective would be gently eliminated from this idj-llic spot and that the dis covery of his unfitness would be prompt. Such was my confidence in this notion that at the end of the first week I would have gone into the With erspoon stable and saddled a horse with my eyes shut, sure that had I been the sort of fellow to take the wrong horse I should not have re mained so long a guest of the house. I paddled out into the lake. There was still a trace of color in the sky, and all the air seemed to be most delicately rose tinted. The mere eye could not see this, could not watch it fade into the faint gray of the ashes of roses, but it was none the less visible. There were whispers from all the shores. The rough hill spoke in its own way; the low ground where the willows grow had a very different story and .the orchard another. I was naturally most inter ested in the orchard, and I propelled the boat to a favorable position, keep ing my distance, however, as I had been taught. v , Suddenly I became aware of a light upon the shore. The lake meanwhile had clothed itself with indistinctness that was not the dark, butscarcely more penetrable. That light had a red dish glow, and it illuminated nothing except the narrowest path upon the water. I made it out to be a fire of little sticks kindled upon the rocks that f.ere quite rugged at the eastern side of the orchard's sea edge near the hill. It was so placed as to be visible over a small area only, and this I knew from having come so suddenly into the view of it. Now, what should a light be kin dled for upon the shore except for the sailor who seeks a harbor? A beacon is set upon a roclf as a guide to show the way. But there are false lights, of course, and the mariner must exercise groat caution;' he must not set all sail in a hurry. I am a good skipper of small craft. I can paddle over the rail of a boat, and you shall neither hear nor see anything that boars a hint of propulsion. And thus I floated in toward the shore through the gray night. Presently there came a sound as if a hand had been laid upon a stringed in strument; then there were chords very lightly struck, and at last I heard a woman's voice singing softly an air that was new to me. Considering this matter in a coldly rational fashion, it was evident that if the lady had wished me farther away she would have, sung more loudly. Her voice was so won derfully clear, even in this whisper of singing, that I felt sure she could have made the music audible across the lake. Plainly, then, this was an invitation, and upon the strength of it I cut my distance from the shore in half. Yet the song neither ceased nor grew louder. My bout must have been visible. It might look white or black in the night, for that question 'is not determined by the normal color of the paint. If the firelight reached it, the skiff would show white and declare itself more plainly for what it was. I decided to be frank about it and not try to pass for the trunk of a tree. In matters of romance I believe thoroughly in hon estyif it wins. So I cut off another rod or two of distance. The lire was now. quite distinct. It reemeu to u on a flat rocii not much above the water level, and behind it was a curving wall, a little cliff ten feet high, but of this only the top was visible, for it was of course impossible for me to see anything that w'as di rectly behind the li'ht. As for the singer, she was utterly in visible. There was something mystical in this music, which seemed to proceed out of the red fire that, with the fa miliar habit of inanimate moving ob jects, assumed to the eye the rhythm of the song. I was so deeply fascinated by all this that I forgot my seaman ship and let my oar strike the boat's rail with a sharp sound. Instantly the music ceased, and I was tortured l.,v a perfect silence. This was a:: emergency, and I knew it. The ringer might be at tl:at r.mn.cnt escap ing by tci::i' secret pr.tli among the rocks. .Tor a moment i was near to the deadly banality of addressing her, apologiU, introducing myself, com mitting I know not what absurdity. Then, it occurred to my mind that since there undoubtedly was a way of escape for her it might possibly be permissible for me to sing. There have been serenades in all ages, and un doubtedly at cae time or another wo men have listened to worse voices than mine with- very kind actvptame of the offering for the sake of the spirit in which it has been made. So" I s::ng the first tiling that came inio my had. and it happened to be a ballad called "The Evening Star," quite trivial in every way, that I used to sing to Sibyl long ago. It is well known that in moments of excitement one speaks above his usual pitch, and this law of nature worked to defeat me in the present instance. The man who wrote "The Evening Star" would never have dared to publish it in the key that I hit, for he would have found few that could sing it. I think a special dispensation must have been granted me. Kr I got through the first stanza like a nightingale, but I per spired reely with terror. Then I waited, and by my sensations of dura tion it s'lould have been 4 o'clock in the next afternoon when I heard a blessed sound from the shore. It was the guitar, aud presently the lady sang again. She had chosen "Heart's De light," a quaint little, melody, and Sibyl's favorite of all, as I remembered. I have strong faith ih the power and the will of chance to deceive a man, but to take this for coincidence was an impossibility. It could be only Sibyl that sang to me, and I must have been less suscepti ble to emotion than was the wood of the boat that bore me if I had not thought .tenderly of the little girl who had wept in the dark at "Heart's De light" in the old days. In the voice itself there was nothing whatever that reminded me of Sibyl. It was not girlish, and of course I could not fully realize the difference that the years had made. She was still a child to me, and the voice was womanly. I would have said the singer had been taught not only by thoroughly competent masters, but by her own emotions; well taught by both, and in the school of the heart one gets no degree at 19 it is indeed an early age to be admitted. I made no analj'sis at that time; I merely thought that it was strange. Therein it was the more agreeable. I did not wish to reduce this adventure to the level of the known. It was all I asked to sit there in the red ray of fire and speak the language of music with a dream girl incarnated from the June night. There Avas an interval of silence. Ob viously it was for me to break it, and I suddenly began to ransack my brain for a good song. That was the wrong place to investigate. If I had ieft my brain at Mrs. Witherspoon's it would have been better. Promptings that are worth obeying at such times arise from the deep seated, unerring region of in stinct. I could not think of the right song, but if I had sung without think ing there would have been no chanes of mistake ' (To be continued.) Women as Wei! as Men Are Made Miserable by Kidney Trouble.
