The Visiting Speaker.
(Copyright, 1917, by the McClure
NewHDBDer Syndicate)
?-pHE dignified principal of the Milltown
High school cleared his
* * throat importantly.
"I have the pleamire of announcing
I * that on Friday afternoon we shall be
honored by a visit from the assistant
to the president of Belmont College."
he advised the school body, "who will
deliver a lecture upon 'College Days."
>* The students took the announcement
philosophically. Friday afternoon lectures
failed to thrill them to any considerable
extent; tbo speakers were
genertlly bearded professors who
fc' reeled off page after page of uninter4
estlng statistics while the pupils yawn
ed openly or read forbidden novels un j
dcr the cover of their desks.
But to little Miss Browne, the young- j
v est member of the faculty, the an-t
nounoement was of surprising import ,
ance. It caused a slight gasp to Issue
from between her crimson lips, ann j
L. a light of reminiscence to shine from 1
t her sky-blue eyes. For the mention <
If. of Belmont College brought bark memories?the
most cherished memories
Bhe had ever known.
!, Through the long day the reminiscent
light continued In her eyes, nntl
when school was dismissed she walked
rather hastily to her small room In
a large boarding house and closed the
' door leading to the hall. She wanted
, to bo alone.
Belmont College. It was a long
time since she had permitted herself
the repetition of that name, but the
mention of it by the pompous principal
had suddenly broken her long
nurtured resolution never to think of
Belmont again. And now, in the se
elusion of her room, she left her
;- thoughts dwell upon it longingly, lovingly.
For there she had met Bob
She remembered it all as If it were
yesterday. She had gone to the junir
prom and its alendaut festivities
with her cousin Budd Sands who had
asked her because he couldn't think
r of any ono else to take, and who, having
given the Invitation, considered
his 'obligation at an end. But little
Blss Browne hadn't minded at all, for
on th every first evening she had been
, Introduced to Bob Prentiss. The name
of Bob's guest was Belle Bcntley. and
until Bob's eyes had rested upon those
of little Blss Browne ho had been rather
attentive to Bello. After that thero
had tj/en a noticeable difference until,
by the time the house party was
two flays' old, a casual observer would
have supposed that Bob had Invited
Miss Browne and Budd Miss Bentley.
Everybody seemed perfectly well satisfied
except the last mentioned young
lady, who. although she laughed more
loudly than any of the others, spent a
good part of the time watching Miss,
Browne from beneath half-closed eye-1
lids. The expression In her eyes changed
gradually from resentment to Jeal
Bu^ little Miss Browne waR oblivious
to everything execpet the llghtnoBS
of Bob PrentlBs' laugh and the
droning softness of his deep (voice.
When Jhe final day of the house party
arrived Bob Prentiss and the girl
Budd Sands had Invited found them|

j Little book, sometimes you should'
be glad you have no eyes. There aro
some sights that wound the heart so
deeply the soar never heals. One of
these sights confronted me as , pulled

been Malcolm Stuart.
Dick Btood at tbe foot helping the
nurses, but his face in its cold marble
whiteness told me nothing. "Lioc't
you hurt him," was my first exclnmaV
tion as 1 saw them try to make him
breathe by artificial means.
"You had better not stay here," said
Dick in a monotonous tone, but he did
not look up. neither did he stop for
J* cne instant bis efforts in helping to
resuscitate Malcolm.
i don't think I ever realized Malcolm
Eluait was so handsome, littles hook,
until I saw him lying there so helpless.
His beauty was terrible. His
staring brown eyes, from which that
wondrous smile had fled, the whiteness
which made his tanned arms and
hands uncanny, seemed to protest
against death.
I thought of our dear companionship
during the summer, of his tender sympathy
and understanding. "He loved
I me," was my sobbng cry under my

Then came the superstition that
makes one ask In times like this, "Was
Bf It because It was wrong to love me
that be has been punished? Will my
punishment for loving him be thi t 1
must go on living with Dick, dragging
this dead secret about with me?"
I looked up to find Dick's eyes upon
H me and in them was such a strange
expression. It was as if he were muteB>
. Jy asking me not to judge until he
B< ?ould explain. ,
By I returned his glance coldly?What
Zj m was there to explain? The man to
B* Whom I was married had let the man
I loved die, had cowardly turned tall
H and come back and left htm out there
H In his struggle.
Why had he done this? Certainly
not from any hint of Jealousy, for as
far as Dick was concerned he was absolutely
Ignorant of anything except
the merest acquaintance between MaiB
colm Stuart and me.
By a perverse fate they had never
met until that day. Dick knew nothB.
lng about the letters that had passed
between Malcolm and me. Certainly
I- he would be the last one to believe his
wife bad listened to words of love that
k Very afternoon from the man whom ije

conclusion of the prpm drew near, re- tl
solved to speak kindly but plainly to- w
little Miss Browne. The opportunity
came on the night before the break- ,
ing up of the house party. By some .
whim of fate tho two girls had been ,
assigned to the same room for the
final evening. It was while they were
dressing for the farewell dance that ?
Miss Bentley delivered what she con- ,,
sidered a masterpiece of sarcastic elo- .
"Bob Prentiss and I are practically j(

back." I had thought many things of j w
Dick but I had never thought him a \11
coward. Indeed, much as I hated him !lt1
at that moment, great as was the con- "
tempt in my heart for him. as little as 81
I could understand his motives, I could tl
not think that the man who was trying
so hard to bring back life to the mas 8
he had let die was a despicable coward. 81
And yet?there could be no explana- P
tion. Since the world began tho only B
difference between man and brute was tt
that mail came to his kind in time of fi
need and the brute let his kind die? M

Why then had Dick done this? By ^
what twist of the brain could he ever
justify himself to himself, let alone to s]
me. t?

But In some miraculous manner,

of the school, be came face to face
with the girl he had been dreaming
of for two years.
"Miss Browne," he gasped. "Where
did you come from!"
Little Miss Browne's eyes dropped
"I am a teacher here," she said. Suddenly
she raised her eyes. "Are you

The man's eyes opened In surprise.
"Of course not." he answered.
Little Miss Browne held out her

"For two years." he announced soberly,
