"THE IDYL OF TWIN FIRES"
By Walter Pritchard Eaton. Copyright 1914-15, by Doubleday, Page & Co.

I (Continued From Our Last Imus)
: T WBNT into tha south room, and
I sat at my dssk answering some
I lsttsrs, while 1 waited for din
! ner. Prssently I heard the front
I door open vsry softly. 1 knew It
j must b« Miss Qoodwln. 1 waited
1 for her to enter the room In a
; pleasant tingle of expectation. But
! the did not enter. Several minutes
! passed, and I got up to lnvestl-
I gate, but there was no sign of her.
i The front door, however, stood
j ajar. Then Mrs. PUUg called
j "Dinner!"
; I walked into my dining room,
' and sat down at the table. Be
! side my plate was the familiar, old
I fashlomd silver I had eaten with'
i when a boy, and the sight of It
j thrilled me.
i Then I spied the centerpiece—a
: glaii vase bearing three freah iris
' from the brookslde. Hers was
! the secret, then, of the open door!
( Mrs. Pilllg came in with the plat
i ter of eggs and bacon, and she,
i too, spied the flowers,
i "Well, well, you've got yourself
a bookay," she said.
"Not I," was my answer. "They
Just came. Mrs. Pilllg, there's a
fairy lives In this house, a nice.
| thoughtful fairy, who does thlng»
like this. If you ever see her,
don't be frightened."
Mrs. Pilllg looked at me pitying
ly. "I'll bring your toast and cof
fee now," sin' said.
Out on the porch I nould see
Peter playing with Buster.
Before me stood the purple iris
blooms, and spoke of her whose
thoughts of me were so gracious,
so delicately expressed, so warm
ing to ray heart.
The spoon I held bore my moth
er's initials, reminding me of my
I childhood. I looked thru the wln
| dow as my last spoonful of des
sert was eaten, and saw the sky
breaking into blue.
I folded my new napkin, put It
; into the old silver ring which bore
th« word "John" on the side, and
rose from my first meal in Twin
Fires.
"I hare a home again," saiil I,
aloud; "I have a home again after
ten years!"
Then I went up the road toward
1 Bert's to deliver my invitation to
■upper for the following evening.
CHAPTER VII.
The First Lemon Pie
The next day Mrs. Pilllg was
nervously busy with preparations
for the feast.
I worked at my manuscripts un
til 5 o'clock, and then went up to
i makp myself ready for the feast.
For some reason, I went Into the
I spare room at the front of 11> ■ >
, house, and, glancing from the wln
' dow, saw Miss Stella stealing up
, thru the orchard, her hands full of
flowers.
She peeped Into the east win
dow, saw the coast was clear, and
I h-sard the front door gently
opened. I tiptoed to the head of
the stairs, and listened. She was
In the south room. Presently I
heard voices.
"Sh!" she was cautioning, evi
dently to Mrs. Pillig. When I came
downstairs, there were fresh flow
ers on the mantels, a bowl of them
on the piano, and a centerpiece in
the dining-room. I smiled.
"That fairy's been hero again."
said Mrs. Pillig slyly. "Gave me
quite a start."
Promptly at seven my guests ar
rtvei. Bert was in rare form that
evening, and kept us in gales of
merriment. Mrs. Pilllg brought the
soup and meat with anxious gravity,
set the courses on the table, and
then stopped to chat with Mrs.
Temple, or to listen to Bert's
stories. She amused me almost as
much as Bert did. It was a family

THE TAOOMA TIMES.
party with the waitress Included.
Then came the lemon pie.
"Now there's a pis!" satd Mrs.
Pilllg. setting It proudly before me.
I picked up my mother's old ill
rer pie knife and carefully sank it
down thru the two-inch mass of
puffy brown meringue spangled
with golden drops, the under layer
of lemon-yellow body, and finally
the flaky, marvellously dry (mil
tender bottom crust.
"Mrs. Pilllg," said I, "pie is
right!"
"Marthy," said Bert, smacking
his lips over the first mouthful, "If
you could make a pie like this,
you'd be perfect."
"If I could make a pie like this."
said Miss Ooodwln, "I should re
sign from the dictionary and open
a bakeshop."
Mrs. Pilllg stood in the doorway,
her thin, worried face wreathed In
smiles.
When at last my guests started
for home I escorted Mlas Goodwin.
The four of us walked up the road
in merry mood, and the older folk
left the girl and me on the porch.
Neither of ua spoke for a long
moment. Then I said abruptly:
"You've only come to my house
wearing a fairy oap of Invisibility,
since I moved In—till tonight.
Won't you come tomorrow and walk
thru the pines? The thrush won't
sing for me alone."
"Yes, I'll come —for the last
time," she said softly.
"Why for the last time?"' I cried.
"Because I'm going back to the
I's, or the J's, on the day after,"
she answered.
"Ob, no, no, you mustn't!" I ex
claimed. "You are not well enough
to go back. You are Just beginning
to get strong again."
"Strong! Why, my hands are as
calloused ag yours," she langhed,
"and about as tanned."
"Let me feel," I demanded.
She hesitated a second, and then
put out her hand. I took It in mine,
and touched the palm. Then my
fingers closed over It. She did not
Attempt to withdraw It for a long
moment. The hand slipped out of
mine. She rose, and we moved to
the door.
"The path tomorrow, at twilight,"
I whispered.
She nodded, and suddenly she
was gone.
All that next June day I worked
in my garden, in a dream.
My mind was not on the task.
Over and over I was asking myself
the question, "Do I love herT What
permanence Is there In a spring
passion? How much of my feeling
for her Is passion, and how much
Is sympathy, even pity?"
Over and over I turned these
questions, while my hands worked
mechanically. And oven and over,
too, I will bo honest and admit, the
selfish bachelor habits Imposed
their opposition to the thought of
union.
I had bought the farm to be my
own lord and master; here I-was
to work, to create masterpieces of
literature; to smoke all over the
house, to toll all night and sleep
all day if I bo desired, to maintain
my own habits, my own lndlTldual
Ity, undisturbed.
"All of which means," I thought,
"that I am not sure of myself. I
must wait."
I went to the house, changed my
clothes, and hastened up the road
to meet her, curiously eager for a
man In doubt.
She was coming out of the door
as 1 crossed tbe bit of lawn, dressed
not in the working clothes which
she had worn on our gardening
days, but all In white. She smiled
at me brlgbtly and ran down the
steps.
"Go to New York—but see Twin
Fires first," she laughed. "I'm all
ready for the tour."
I had not expected so much light
ness of heart from her, and I was
a little piqued, as I answered. You
don't seem very sorry that you are
seeing It for the last time "
She smiled into my face. "All
pleasant things Uave to end," she
said, "so why be glum about it v
"Do they bare to end?" laid I.
"In my experience, always," she
nodded.
I was silent My resolution,
which I confess had wavered a little
when she came thru the doorway,
was flied again. Juat the light
banter In her tone had done It.
We walked down the road, and
went first to take a look at the
lawn and rose trellis.
"It will be T*ry lovely another
year, when the vines have covered
It," she said.
"The lawn will look like a lawn
by then, and possibly I shall have
achieved a sundial plate," I an
swered.
"Possibly you will," said she, with
a suspicious twinkle.
We moved on, around the bend
by the road, and back Into the dusk
of the thickest pines. We walked
on to the spot where we first had
met, and where first the thrush had
sounded for us his elfin clarion.
There we stopped and listened, but
there was no sound save the whis
per of the plnt>s.
And then, as we waited, our eyes
meeting, suddenly he sang, far off
across the tamaracks, ons perfect
call, and silence again.
Har face was a glimmering ra
diance in the dugk. Slowly my
face sank toward hers, and our
Upn met
Another Instant, and she stood
away from me, fright In her eyes.
Then, as luddenly, she laughed.
"John Upton," she said, "you are
a bad man. That wasn't what the
thrush said at all."
"I misunderstood," said I, recor
erlng more slowly, and astounded
by her mood.
"I'll not reproach you, since I, a
philologist, misunderstood for a
second myself," she responded.
"Now I must go home to pack my
trunk."
"Let me drive you to the station
in the morning," said I, as we
emerged from the grove. In this
sudden strange, calm intimacy,
when no word had been spoken,
and I, at least, was quite in the
dark as to her feelings.
She shook tier head. "No. I go
too early for you. You —you
mustn't try to see me."
For just a second her voice wav
ered. She stopped for a last look
ai Twin Fires. "Nice house, nice
garden, Dice brook," she said. Then
we walked up the road, mid, at
Bert's door, she put out her hand.
"Good-bye," she said.
"Good l>y»," I answered.
Her eyes looked frankly,lnto
mine. There was nothing there but
smiling friendship. The fingers did
not tremble In my grasp.
"I shall write," said I, controlling
my voice with difficulty, "and tsend
you plcturei of the garden."
"Yes, do."
She was gone. I walked slowly
baok to my dwelling. I had kept
my resolution. Yet how strangely
I had kept It I All had been so
sudden —the klis, her springing
away, her abrupt, astonishing
laughter. She had thought it, per
haps, but the mood of tha place
and hour, and understood.
That was fine, generous! Few
women, I thought, would be capa
ble of it. Yes, I had kept my res
olution—and I felt like a fool, a
happy, hopeless fool!

I had written to her the day aft
er she bad departed, but no reply
came for a week, and then only a
brief little note.
I, too, watted a week —tho it
wai hard—and then anawored,
■'ndlng gome photographs. Again
she answered briefly, merrily,
conveying her e«peotal regards to
Buster.
1 sat, the evening after this let
ter arrived, in my big, cool room,
with Buster beside me, and thought
of her down there in the swelter of
town.
I pulled my pad toward me and
wrote her a letter. It read:

"Her*, Buster," said I.
The pup rose and snuggled hla
nose Into my lap. I picked him
up, held his forepaw firmly and
put some Ink on It. Then I held
the paper below It, prensed the paw
down, and made a signature, wip
ing the paw afterward with a blot
ter. I sealed and addressed th*
letter, and went to bed.
A few days later a box came ad
dressed to Buster In my care. I
opened It In Bnster's presence. On
top was a small package labeled
"For Rimter." It proved to be a
dog biscuit, which the recipient at
once took to the hearth and began
upon.
Beneath this was a note, which
I opened with eager fingers. It
began:
