tti of Identity and that.lie was reserv
ng his statement until tlio nature of
the case should disclose itself. If Elsie
should die, there was little chance that
a man of Blair's type would withhold
his evidence, for in that event some
body would Ue directly accused, and a
just person would feel that ail the evi
deuce should be brought forward.
Blairs present position was such that
Kendall did not know how to attack It,
and so he fell back upon the matter of
his real .errand. As to that there was
no difficulty. Blair promised to call at
tho hospital within an hour.
Having received this promise, Ken
dull returned nt once and notified Elsie
of the approaching visit. Her manner
was very significant. She was evi
dently braciug herself for a consider
able ordeal. There could be no doubt
that she had determined to save Bren

which she hnd withheld up to tHat
time. As Blair was I he lirst physician
who had been '.ailed to attend her she
could claim the right of a patient and
"I don't s
how that is possible,
said at last, "but 1 would be v
claim the right of a patient and
put him upon his professional honor
not lo disclose what slit* might say.
Indeed, certain questions which she
asked made Kendall sure that she hnd
considered this phase of the situation.
It was possible that she might intend
to go to the length of confiding to Blair
the actual facts of the case, for by
naming the author of the crime she
could most surely relieve Brenda from
any further suspicion. Even upon tho
supposition that Brenda had rcaUy
gone to that house and had been
by Blair lie would probably consent to
shield her from offensive publicity if
he knew her to be entirely innocent.
Kendall was conscious of a strange,
boyish feeling of discontent that Elsie
should not huve chosen him as the re
cipient of tills confidence. He could
understand that there might be rea
sons why she should tell Brenda ev
erything, and,
bad no positive knowledge that she hnd
not already done so. Moreover, to have
told him would have been merely to let
another person into the secret, what
ever It might be, since It was not ho,
but Blair, who had the power to check
the attacks upon Brenda. Still, he
could not help feeling isolated, the more
because of his reflection that Brenda
might already know all.
