And what a man you are in uniform I I think I see you «mushing heads Instead of bottles. Six out of six, Dave ! It's awful, but you must do It. Already we know what has happened in Belgium. You will ferget your own wrongs in the greater wrongs of others. . . . And I shall My father soon pick it She chatted on, but he had become suddenly grave. "I don't think that is your course, Irene," he said. "This is going to be a bigger job than it looked. The government will get soldiers and nurses ; the populnr imagination turns to such things. But It will be neither soldiers nor nurses that will win the war. I feel sure of that now. Millions of men will be taken from production and turned to purposes of destMictlon. They will he taken from otllces, where they need l.ttle food, und put in the trenches, where they need much food. Countries will be devastated; armies will retreat, destroying all food ns they go. Ships will go down with cargoes of wheut ; Incendiary fires will swallow warehouses of food. I believe my place Is in the trenches ; hut those less fit for the fight than I must, in some form or other, produce food. That in cludes the women ; it includes you." "We? Bui; what can I do?" Join the service as a nurse, was a doctor, and I can up." "Since I left home I've thought a good deal of the old ranch. I de spised It in those prosperous days— those days we thought were prosperous —but the prosperity is gone and the ranch remains. It still lies out there, just as it did motored dow when you and your father u that afternoon a dozen years ago. I think you'll have to go hack there, Reenie. I think you'll have to take the boy Charlie, and what ! other help you cun get, and go back to the old rancli and raise something for the soldiers to eat. You can do it. There are good men to be had ; men who can't very well carry n rifle, but can drive a plow. And believe me, Reenie, It's the plow that's going to win. Go bt.ck and put them ut it Think of every furrow as another trench in the defenses which shall save yotjr home from the fate of Belgium's homes. It's not as easy as going to the front ; It hasn't got the heroic ring to It, and I suppose there are many who will commercialize it. Let them. We shall nesd their profits after the war to pay our debts. But It's the thing that must be done. And you'll do It, won't you?" 'Til do whatever needs to be done, Dave. I'd rather be by your side, or ns near as may be, but if you say that my duty lies back on the old ranch I shall go back to the old ranch and raise food for my soldier. And when it's all over we shall ride those old hillsides again. . . . Up the canyon, you remember, Dave? The little niche In the wall of the canyon, and all the silence and the sunlight? . . . For ever. . . CHAPTER XV.

Me was killed ut Cour celette." I looked in his little sunburnt face, in his dark, proud eyes, and presently a strange mist eimÿopod the room. How many little faces, how many pairs of^ 0 eyes! It wus just fading away when a step sounded on the walk, and I arose us she readied the door. "The Man of the House has made me at home," I managed to say. "I nm shipwrecked on the hill for a little gusoline." "There is plenty out in the field, where the tractor is," she replied. "You will find It without difficulty. Or If you care to wait here, Charlie may be along presently." Her voice had sweet, modulated tones, with just that touch of pathos which only the Angel of Suffering knows how to add. And her face was fair, and gentle, and a little sad, and very sweet. "lie has told me," I said. There seemed no reason why I should not say it. She had entered Into the sis terhood—that universal sisterhood of suffering which the world has known in these long, lonely years. . . And it was between us, for we were all in the family. There was no occasion to scrape acquaintance by slow, con ventional thrust and parry. "Yes," she said, sitting down and motioning me to a chair. "I was bitter at first. I was dreadfully bitter at first. But gradually I got a different view of it. Gradually I came to feel and know that all we enn feel and a !

It is as though life were a riddle, and the key is hidden, and the door behind which the key is hidden is called Death. And I don't believe it's all for nothing ; I won't believe it's all for nothing. "Then there is the suffering," she continued, after a pause. I don't know why there should be suffering, but I know if there were no suffering there would be no kindness. It is not until you are hit—hard hit—that you begin to think of other people. Until then all is selfishness. But we women—we women of the war—we have nothing left to bo selfish for. But we have the whole world to be unselfish for. It's all different, and it can never go hack. We won't let it go hack. We've paid too much to let it go back." • It wus hard to find a reply. "I think I knew your husband a little," I ven tured. "He was a—a man." "He was all that," she said. She arose and stood for a moment in an altitude of hesitation; her fingers went lo lier lips as though enjoining caution. Then with quick decision she went into an inner room, from which she re turned in a moment with a letter. "If you knew him you may cure to read this," she said. "It's very per sona], and yet, some way, everything is Impersonal now, in a sense. There has be< n such a common cause, and such a wave of common suffering, that it seems to flood out over the individ ual and embrace us all. ... So this is really, in a sense, your letter as well ns mine." I took it and read; to In ns of if or of I have laid many letters to write since | ' my service began as a nurse in the war, but never have I approached the tusk with such mixed emotions. The pain 1 must give you I would gladly bear myself I could; but It Is not all pain; under neath It, running through it in some way nnot explain, is a note ko much deeper than pain that It must be joy.

It was something more than chance that guided me that night-as it is every night. We were well behind the line of actual : fighting, but I had become detached from iny party in moving to another station, lost, if you like, yet not lost; never have i gone so directly to so great a destination \.'iii!e trying to get my location, I hoc » of a presence; it will sound strange to you. but I became intensely aware of your presence. Of course I knew it could not be you, in the flesh, but you it seemed to be, nevertheless. 1 moved as though led by an invisible hand, and presently I found a bit of shattered wall. In the gloom I could just discern the form of a man lying in the shelter of the wall—if you could call it shelter—it rose scarce a foot above the ground. I knelt beside him and turned my torch It was pale even through the brown skin; the eyes were closed; the hair was wet and plastered j>n the forehead; there were smears of blood on It and on his cheeks. As my light fell on his lips they framed a smile. "Reenie," he said, "it was good of you to come. I knew you would come." "I am here, Dave," I answered, and I think you will forgive the impersonation. "Now let me And out where you are hurt and we'll fix you up, and get you moved presently." He opened his eyes and looked at mo with the strange look of a man whose thread of consciousness is half unraveled. "Oh, it's you, Edith," he said, when he had taken me in. "Funny, I thought it was Irene. I must have been dreaming." I questioned him again about his wound and began feeling his hair. "It's not there," he said. "Guess I got it all over my hands. They got me this time. Don't waste time on me. Some other fellow may have a chance." I found, with a little examination, that the case was as bad as he supposed. For tunately, the wound had induced a local paralysis and he was not suffering to any great degree. I placed my hand in his and felt his grip tighten on it. "I'm going to stay till it's over, Dave. We'll see it out together." "That's decent," he answered, and then was still for quite a time. "I've often wondered what was on the other side," he said, at length. "I shall know presently." "You are not afraid?" I whispered. Only sort of—curious. And—rev erent. I guess it's reverent. . . . You know I haven't been much on religion. Never seemed to get the formula. What is the formula? I mean the key—the thing that gives it all in one word?" "In one word—sacrifice. 'He that loseth his life shall find it.' " I quoted. He did not answer, but I could see hla lips smiling again. His breath was more labored. A few' drops of rain fell, and some of them spattered on his face. Presently he chuckled. It was an eery sensation, out on that broad plain of death, alone by the side of this man who was already far into the shadow—to hear him chuckle. "That splash of water—you remember— it made me think of the time we pulled the old car into the stream, and the har ness broke or something, and I had to carry you. You remember that, Reenie ?" I could only say, "Yes," and press his hand. His mind w'as back on the old, old trails. He became suddenly sober.- "And when Brownie was killed," he went on, "I said it was the. innocent thing that got caught. Perhaps I was right. But perhaps it's best to get caught. Not for the getting caught, but for the—the compensations. It's the innocent men that are getting killed. And perhaps it's best. Perhaps there are pensatlons worth while." His voice was weaker, and I had to lean close to catch his words. "I'm going—out," he said. "Kiss me, Reenie." And then I kissed him—for you. Suddenly he sat up. "The mountains!" he exclaimed, and hl3 voice was athriU W'ith the pride of his old hills. "See the moonlight—on the mountains!" Then his strength, which seemed to have gathered itself for this one last vision of the place of his boyhood, gave way, and he fell back, and he did not speak any more. And what can I add? defeat.
