The dulled double, flat?
top 0/ horses sounded.
1 HE park was very misty and
damp and still that February
morning. Far away ou the
wooded bridle patb the dulled
double gallop of horses sounded, now
Baffled In a hollow, now louder. Jar?
ring the rising ground, nearer, heavier,
then sudileuly
chocked to a
tra mille, ns Syl?
via drew bridle
by the reservoir
and. straighten?
ing In her sad?
dle, raised her
flushed face to
the sk y.
"Rain?" she
asked as Quar?
rier, controlling
h JI beautiful,
restive horse,
ranged up alongside of her.
"Probably." he said, scarcely glanc?
ing at the .ky, where, above the great
rectangular lagoons, hundreds of sea
gulls, high in the air, hung flapping
stemming some rushing upper gale
unfe'.t below.
On their daily rides together it was
her custom to discuss practical mat?
tera concerning their future, and lt
was his custom to listen until pressed
for a suggestion, au assent or a reply.
Sparing words?cautious, chary of
self commitment aud seldom offering
to assume the Initiative?this was the
surface character which she had come
to recognize and acquiesce in. This
was Quarrier as he had been develop?
ed from her hazy, preconceived ideas
of the man before she had finally ac?
cepted him at Shotover the autumn be?
fore. She also knew him as a raeth
M'.cal man. exacting from o.thers the
orderly precision which characterized
his own dealings. A man of education
and Tittle learning, of attainments and
little ? cultivation, conversant with
usages, formal, intensely sensitive to
ridicule, incapable of hymor.
This was Quarrier as she knew him
or had known him. Recently she had.
little by little, become aware of an In?
definable change in the man. For one
thing, he had grown more reticent. At
times, too, his reserve seemed to have
something almost surly about it. Un?
der his cold composure a hint of some?
thing concealed, watchful and very
Confidences she had never looked for
In him nor desired. It appallgd her at
moments to realize how little they had
In common and that only on the sur?
face?a communion of superficial in?
terest incident to the fulfillment of so?
cial duties and the pursuit of pleasure.
Beyond that she knew nothing of him,
required nothing of him. What was
there to know? What to require?
Now that the main line of her route
through life had been surveyed and
carefully laid out, what was there
more for her In life than to set 4vTit
upon her progress? It was her own
road. Presumptive leader already,
logical leader from the day she mar?
ried?leader, in fact, when the ukase,
her future legacy, so decreed. It was
n royal road laid out for her through
the gardens and pleasant places. A
road for her alone, and over lt she had
chosen to pass. What more was there
to desire?
From the going of Siward all that
he had aroused in her of love, of intel
Billy Fleetwood,
llgence, of wholesome desire and sane
curiosity?the intellectual restlessness,
the capacity for passion, the renais?
sance of the simpler innocence?had
subsided into the laissez faire of dull
Riding there, head bent, ber pulses
timing the slow pacing of her horse,
she presently became aware, without
looking up, that Quarrier was watching
her. She moved slightly in her saddle
to look at him and for au instant fan?
cied that there was something furtive
In his eyes. Only for an instant, for
he quietly picked up the thread of con?
versation where she had dropped it,
saying that it had been raining for the
last ten minutes and that they might

Without reason, through and through
her shot a shiver of loneliness?utter
loneliness nnd isolation. Without rea?
son, because from him she expected
nothing, required nothing, except what
he offered?the emotionless reticence
of Indifference, the composure of per?
fect formality. What did she want,
then ?companions? She had them.
Friends? She could scarcely escape
from them. Intimates? She bad only |

"About that Amalgamated Electric
ompauy," she began without prelude.
Wquld you mind answering a ques
lon or two. Howard?"
"You could not understand it," he
aid, unpleasantly disturbed by her
"As you please. It ls quite true I
an make nothing of what the newspa
iers are saying about it, except that
dr. Plank seems to l>e doing a number
>f things."
"Injunctions and other matters," ob?
served Quarrier.
"Is anybody gping to lose any mouey
n It?"
"Who. for example?"
"Why-you, for example." she said.
"I don't expect to."
"Then it is going to turn out nil
ight? And Mr Plank and Kemp Fer
rali and the major and?the other peo?
ple Interested are not going to be al?
most ruined by the Intercounty peo?
"Do you think a man like Plank ls
likely to be ruined, ns you say. by
Amalgamated Electric."
"No. Rut Kemp and tbe major"?
"1 think the major ls out of danger."
replied Quarrier, looking nt her with
the new. sullen narrowing of his eyes.
"I am glad of that, ls Kemp?and
the others?"
"Ferial! could stand it if matters go
wrong What others?"
"Why?the other owners and stock?
"What others? Who do you mean?"
"Mr. Siward, for example" she said
In an even voice, leaning over to pat
her horse's neck with her gloved hand.
"Mr. Siward must'take the chances
we a!l take." ol.served Quarrier.
"Rut. Howard, It v.ould really mean
ruin for him if matters went badly.
Wouldn't it?"
"1 am not familiar with the details
of Mr. Siward's investments."
"Nor am I," she said slowly.
She spoke about other things. Ile
responded in his impassive manner.
Presently she turned her horse, and
Quarrier wheeled his, facing a wann,
fine rain slauting thickly from the
His silky Vandyke beard was all wet
with the moisture. She noticed it. and
unbidden arose the vision of the gun?
room at Shotover - Quarrier's soft
beard wet with rain, the phantoms of
people passing and repassing, Siward's
straight figure swinging past, silhou?
etted against the glare of light from the
billiard room. And here she made an
effort to efface the vision, shutting her
eyes as she rode there in the rain, but
clearly against the closed lids she saw
the phantoms passing ? specters of
dead hours, the wraith of an old hap?
piness masked with youth and wear?
ing Siward's features!
She saw herself be*side him uraong
the cushions; tasted again the rose
petals that Tier lips had stripped from
the blossoms; saw once more the
dawn of something in his steady eyes;
felt his arm about her. his breath?
Her horse, suddenly spurred, bound?
ed forward through the rain, and she
rode breathless, with her Ups half part?
ed, as if afraid, turning lier head to
look behind?as though she could out?
ride the phantom clinging to her stir?
rup, masked like youth, wearing the
shadowy eyes of love!
? **?***
An hour later, fresh from her bath,
luxurious in loose and filmy lace, her
small white feet shod with silk, she
lunched alone, cradled among the cush?
ions of her couch.
Twice she strolled through the rooms
leisurely, summoned by her maid to
the telephone, the first time to chat
with Grace Ferrall, who, it appeared,
was a victim of dissipation, being still
abed, and out of humor with the rainy
world; the second time to answer in
the negative Marion's suggestion that
she motor to Lakewood with her for
the week's end before they closed their
Sauntering back again, she sipped
her milk and vichy, tasted the straw?
berries, tasted a big bkick grape, dis?
carded both and lay back among the
cushions, her naked arms clasped be?
hind her head, and, dropping one knee
over the other, stared at the ceiling.
The room was very still and dim, but
the clamor in her brain unnerved her,
and she sat up among the cushions,
looking vacantly about her with the
blue, confused eyes, the direct, unsee?
ing gaze of a child roused by a half
heard call.
The call?low, imperative, sustained
?continued softly persistent against
her windows, the summons of the
young year's rain.
She went to the window and stood
among the tilmy curtains, looking out
Into the mist. A springlike aroma pen?
etrated the room. She opened the
window a little way, and the sweet,
virile odor enveloped her.
A thousand longings rose within her.
Unnumbered wistful questions stirred
her, sighing, unanswered. Every breath
was drawing her backward, nearer,
nearer to the source of memory. Ah,
the cliff chapel in the rain! The words
of a text in ti rn bled deafly?the yearly
service for those who died at sea. And
she, seated there in the chapel dusk
thinking of him who sat beside her
and how he feared a heavier, stealth?
ier, more secret tide crawling, purring
about his feet!
Always, always at the end of every?
thing, he! Always, reckoning-step by
step, backward through time, he, the
source, the inception, the meaning of
Unmoored at last, her spirit swaying,
enveloped in memories of him, she
gave herself to the flood, overwhelmed
as tide on tide rose, rushing over her,
body, mind and soul.
She closed her eyes, leaning there
heavily amid the cloudy curtains. She
moved back into the room nnd stood
staring at space through wet lashes.
The hard, dry pulse lu her throat hurt
her till her under lip, freed from the
tyranny of her small teeth, slipped
free, quivering rebellion.
She had been walkihg her room to
and fro, to and fro, for a long time
before she realized that sheiiad moved
at all.
And now Impulse held the helm. A

Her voice left her for an lustant.
Her dry lips made uo answer,
"WTho Is it?" he repeated In his
steady, pleasant voice.
"It ls I."
There was absolute silence, so long
that it frightened her, but before she
could speak again his voice was sound?
ing In her ears, patient, unconvluced:
"I don't recognize your voice. Who
am I shaking to?"
There was no response, and she spoke

It is afternoon uow. Is lt too late to

"No. I'm badly rattled. Is it you,

"Yes; I am listening."
"I don't know what I did think. Is
it necessary for me to telephone you a
minute account of the mental proc?
esses which ended by my calling you
up out of the vasty deep?"
The old ring in her voice, hinting of
the laughing undertone, the same trail?
ing sweetness of inflection?could he
doubt his senses any longer?
"I know you now," he said.
"I should think you might. I should
very much like to know how you are?
If you don't mind saying?"
"Thank you. I seem to be all right.
Are you all right, Sylvia?"
"Shamefully and outrageously well.
What a season too! Everybody else is
in rags?makeup rags! Isn't that a dis?
agreeable remark? But I'll come to
the paint brush, too. of course. We

"Yes?to death."
"Are you becoming cynical?**
"I? Why should I?"
"You are! Stop it! Mercy on us!

house on tower Fifth avenue, facing
the corner of certain streets, lt's time

"To the rescue! I've a mind to do it
myself. They say you are not well,
"Who says that?"
"Qh, the usual little ornithological
cockatrice?or, rather, cantatrice. Don't
ask me, because I won't tell you. I
always tell you too much anyway.
Don't I?"
"Do you?"
"Of course I do. Everybody spoils
you, and so do I."
"Yes?1 am rather In that way, I
suppose." ?
"What way?"
And In a lower voice, "Please don't
say such things?will you?"
"Especially to me."
"Especially to you. No, 1 won't.
And, after a hesitation, she continu
ed sweetly:
"I wonder what you were d'?i:!g. ni'

"I? Let me see. Oh. 1 rms ??

"No; I don't think I should care to.
I'm rather too busy to go about, even
If I were Inclined to."
"Are you really busy, Stephen?"
"Yes?wailing. That is the very
hardest sort of occupation, and I'm
obliged to be on hand every minute."
"But you said that you were going

"Did I? Well, I did not say it exact?

"Stephen, Mr. Plank says that you
are lame."
"What did he say that for?" demand
cd Siward wrathfully.
"I asked him. Kemp saw you on
crutches at your window, so I asked
Mr. Plauk, and he said you had dis?
carded your crutches too soon and had
fallen and lamed yourself again. Are
you able to walk yet?"
"Yes, of course."
