Cepyight. 13.5, Ly Homer Fprarjne
The reat sUvimcr plowed its way on
ward, each throb of tlic fiic'.ue3 bring
ing her neaicr to the destined havea.
Far up in tl.e bow stood a man and a
woman waUxiiu throuli the davkns ?.
Plymouth would be reach ea e:?riy next
moruin?. In silence the two fto xl gaz
ing at the distant lights now beginning
to flaoh out. TLL meant the close of
the voyage, the end of a week of rare
At lirst the man had paid but scant
heed to the slender, dark eyed woman
who faced him at the long table. He
was off for a rest and did not care to
meet people. Dut something in the
quiet, restrained glance attracted him.
and later, when he saw her on deck
struggling with steamer rugs, it seemed
only civil to oJIer his assistance.
Henceforth they fell into the way of
being together. They read and criti
cised each other's books and m.gn
zines, they spent much time pacing the
deck, and now had come the last night
of it all. She was leaving the sh'p at
Plymouth; he was going on to Cher
bourg. The man was the first to speak.
"And am I never to see you again?"
She shook her head.
"It Is very unlikely."
"You mean" ho demanded.
"I mean that it Is best not." was the
quiet answer, but he bent rebelliously
"Listen," he said determinedly. "I
know that It is far too soon to speak,
that you have known me barely a
week, yet when you talk in this way
aay that we shall not meet again"
"You know nothing of me either,"
broke in the woman hurriedly "who
I am or whence I come."
"I know you are the loveliest and
sweetest Avonian in the world," he said,
with a stubborn frown, "and that I"
"Xo, no," cried iie sharpiy. Then
he lifted her head. "I have not told
you the whole truth." she said, a quiet
dignity in her bearing. "I am indeed
Mrs. Kaymond, and my husband is
dead, but I am also Russell Pan

the word Incredulously. "Iiancrof
.sister." 1 1 is voice betrayed only an
amazed bewilderment, but the wom
an, sensitively alive to every intona
tion, heard or fancied a certain hidden
repugnar.ee beneath the surprise. Her
breath fluttered; then she pulled her
"Sq.jC am sure you will agree Hh
me ttoSft ' any further friendship be
tween us is impossible," she said chvtr
ly. ".Good uight and goodby."
Before he could divine her Intention
she had stepped toward the compan
ionway. The next moment She was
gone. The man turned back to the rail.
"Bancroft's sister," he said again,
his eyes resting vaguely, unseemingly
upon the tumbling waters. "Bancroft's
Below in the narrow little cabin Mrs.
ltaymond threw harself upon the bunk.
The heavy tears hung upon her lashes.
He hated her then. She wondered at
it in a dull sort of way. Yet who
really could wonder that the very name
of Bancroft should be distasteful in his
ears? She knew the whole wretched
story. The two men had been chums
at school, roommates at college. She
recoilected the tall lad whom Kusseil
had brought home for an occasional
visit. Then had come Cortwright's en
gagement. The cards were out, the
wedding dress finished. Bancroft was
to be best man. And then two dayr?

chum's bride, leaving a wild, incoher
ent note in which they pleaded theii
Child as she had been, Mrs. Ray
mond well remembered the tremendous
excitement it had stirred, her passion
ate sympathy for the half stunned
Cortwright. But the affair slid into
history, liko everything ch;e. After that
Kusseil and his wife lived abroad. She
herself had grown up, married and be
come a widow. Her marriage had not
proved exac tly a success, yet she had
mourned her husband deeply and sin
cerely, never considering the possibil
ity of her marrying again. -Then hail
come this steamer acquaintance with a
man singularly congenial in tastes and
ideas. Her learning of his identity had
been a shock. She feltthat in honesty
she must reveal herself. Yet every day
she lot pass nmde the task more dim
cult. And now what she had most
feared had come to pass he shrank
from the sister of his faithless friend.
The woman on the bunk started up
in sudden fierceness. It was not fair.
What part had she in that old deed:
She must see him again explain. She
did not know exactly what t3 say, but
the impulse carried her out int j the cor
ridor. It was not late. Perhaps he
would join her again on deck. v
But as she turned into the passage
way which led to his door and lifted
her hand to knock a swift realization
of what she was about to do swept
over her with an intolerable rush of
shame. What! Appeal to the pity of
any man? For had he truly loved her
he would not have let her go.
Dominated by this reasoning, she
turned and fairly ran back to her
cabin. There, with bowed head, mo
tionless save for soft, catching breaths,
she waited until the steward came to
It looked very cheerless In the big
room. A few persons were clustered
about one end of a long table. She
cast a aul :k glance about hardlT know
ing t it what she hoped, but he was not
there. The steward brought eggs and
coffee, and she managed a cup. Then
she went oa deck.
The rain was dripping dismally. Ilert
and there a light glimmered faiutij
through the thick mist. So that was
Plymouth. The gang plank leading tc
the tender was steep an. I slippery.
People moved through the dusk like
disembodied spirits. It was all very
gloomy and very forlorn, and despite
herself she shivered.
The gang pianl; was pulle l hi. The
band, huddled into a damp group oe
the steamer's deck, brake forth with a
lively air. A man standing near by
"If one has to be awake at such an
hour it is a comfort to know that nc
one else can sleep either," he observed
"It would be hard to sleep throagh
that racket," assented his companion.
At the voice she started violently. Was
it could it be Cortwright? For a mo
ment she scarcely breathed, thrilled be
tween ecstasy and fear. Then a dark
figure detached itself from the fog and
came to her.
"It is you," said the voice, and this
time unmistakably it was Cortwright's.
"I wasn't sure at first."
"But you!" gasped the woman.
"Your ship Cherbourg?"
"Hang Cherbourg," said he cheerful
ly. Then his voice dropped.
"Do you think that you were very
kind to me awhile back?" he asked
gravely. "Wasn't It rather mean to
spring a surprise of that sort on a
man and then run before he could re
cover?" "Oh!" expostulated she weakly. Thin
was a new view of the matter.
"I thought It was because you didn't
care," he went on. "You know, you
wouldn't wait, wouldn't give me a
chance to speak. I thought perhaps
anyway, I felt mighty blue when I
went below. Then I found this." She
could just glimpse the tiny square of
lawn that he showed her. "It lay on
the carpet near my door, and it told
me it told me Ah, sweetheart," he
cried, a sudden subdued exultation
ringing through his tone, "that gave me
the courage to come. It told me that
perhaps you felt sorry for me; that
perhaps you, too, cared just a little bit
that you might listen to me. Was 1
wrong, dear? Will you marry me?"
The mist was drifting out to sea.
The clouds had broken, and in the
east appeared a g'.ow of crimson find
gold. The sun was rising in all its splen
dor nnd majesty. The rain w:is over.
For a moment the woman gazed with
wide, g'.ad eyes at the newborn day;
then s.e turned to meet the man's
"I will marry you whenever you
like," she s;iid.
Not a Traeretl y.
They ha walked halfway through
the park, and suddenly she sat down
on a bench. He sat beside her. They
were entirely alone save for an old
man at one end of their seat im
mersed in a book. Their 'agitated con
versation continued :

hands as if to shut out some unbear

"Hush!" he interrupted gently! "Let
us no longer think of it or it may grow

"Pardon me," said the old man on
the end of the seat, his watery eyes
distended in lively apprehension, "has

Derivation of Fntl.
The derivation of the word "fad" is
possibly traceable in the Welsh lan
guage. By the law of mutation of ini
tial consouants peculiar to that to'ngue
the root words ffedd and medd are
convertible terms. Their essential
meaning is possession; transitive or in
transitive, possession of something or
the act of being possessed or engrossed
by some occupation or vice. Welsh
medd and Irish, Sanskrit and English
mad have similar meanings and are
probably kindred words. The word
mad is not common in Teutonic idioms,
so that the Anglo-Saxons probably bor
rowed it from the Welsh. Fad is
therefore equally derivable from ffedd.
Proximately, of course, it comes from
the midland dialects and ultimately
from some root word common to many
members of the Aryan family of
speech. It would be strange if the two
words, mad and fad, having a similar
meaning, should be traceable to the
same root. Notes and Queries.
Tbe Shrike, or Batcher Bird.
There is a strange little bird, about
as b'jj a3 a robin, which nearly every
winter brings us. He is general! v
alone, like a tiny black and gray hawk
In many of his ways, but related truly
to the gentle vireos and waswings. He
is the northern shrike, or butcher bird,
and he gets a cruel living by catching
mice and little birds, which he hangs
on locust thorns, sharp twigs or the
points of a wire fence, as his little feet,
unlike the hawk's, aie not strong
enough to hold his prey. But he is a
handsome fellow, and rarely one may
hear a very sweet little song as he sits
on tbe top of some lenfless bush, par
ticularly late in the winter. But gen
erally he Is silent, like the true birds
of prey, or at best gives only a rasping
tqueal. -St Nicholas.
