Dear Eleanor:
Can it be possible I am so many
miles from the spot from which I last
wrote you?
And yet it must be so! For if I raise
my eyes from my paper now, it is not to
meet miles of iupenutrable forest, or a
blue mist-hung valley. There is no
clamor of water in my ears. None of
the mysterious night voices of the
mountains, which lured while they
repelled me; drew me toward them
only to throw me back upon myself in
undefined terror.
Oh! they certainly had a beautiful
fascination for me, those gloomy, secret
burdened mountains.
I think in some former incarnation I
must have murdered some one or slain
my soul, there, and the ghost of some
other self is doomed for millions of years
to wail out its penance between th
earth and hidden sky.
You see, 1 have not quite shaken on"
the spell yet. Like the transplanted
sea shell, yet do I hear in my heart the
moan, moan of the water.
I do try to be more rational. I imag
ine what mother would say if she knew
I am still afraid in the "wee etna"
I resolutely lift my eyes and prove to
myeelf that I can see only four walls
covered with delft blue paper. Oppo
site me hangs my familiar Gibson girl,
a sketchy suggestion of the up to date
young woman, with strubly hair, long
arms and sweeping lines of drapery.
Gibson does not follow the fleshly echool
of art, and it does occur to one occas
ionally that if one of his models could
be taken off a pickle diet for a time and
fed properly, she would be beyond criti
cism. This is a very rambling perontion.and
the worst of it is, I do not seem to have
a single clothes-pin to keep my mental
rags from flying widely.
You need not have been alarmed
about my illness out there, but it was
good of you to telegraph. You needed
to square yourself some way for your
shameful neglect of me this summer.
I was only another victim of nerves. I
was not in pain a single moment. I
really think a good decided ache 6ome
where would have been a relief. I am a
good deal of a chameleon and take my
color from my surroundings. If the
place there had not impressed me as
joyless, the fact that it was tho first
time in my life when I came right face
to face with a deep, hopeless grief
would have beon enough to weight my
heart. The last week we were on tho
ranch I could not do much but lie
about, and try to keep myself from Hy
ing to pieces.
The evening papa came up from the
little town with tho telegram which
meant our immediate return, poor Jim
dropped his taze into his two bands and
sat perfectly motionless for a long, long
time. Then when he finally looked up,
he and I were alone God grant that
be the last time 1 see such a look on
any human face. I gave a little smoth
ering cry and reached my hand toward
him, he took it in his two icy cold ones.
"It I could ooly bear part of it for
you)' I said.
"I am glad you cannot," he replied,
in a husky voice. "You have dono moro
for me now than I ever thought any
human being could do. That is why,
in my selfishness, I feel almost as if 1
could not bear to lose your sweet wom
anly sympathy."
I didn't say much there are supreme
moments, pinnacles of mental emotion,
when the air is so rarefied one can
scarcely breathe, let alone talk. I had
a lightning gleam across my inner con
sciousness, and it revealed the possi
bility of a degenerate in me were it pos
sible to proceed along the path marked
within, for in one blinding instant I .
realized that if Jim Kelar were a man
strong and well, and if that dead girl
who once broke his heart were to live
again and love him, my heart would
The carnival spirit begins to stir a
mong the dry bones of the city. Miles
of bunting in the Ak-Sar-Ben colors
are being rolled, twisted and draped in
to artistic designs, and other than ar
tistic in many cases. I think they have
enclosed more space than usual for the
street fair it looks so at least. Booths
are rapidly nearing completion, and a
lively air of activity circulates about the
corners of Eighteenth and Douglas. I
am not advised as to whether the Lady
Centipede or the human snake-eater
has arrived, but probably not.
If the sky of tonight fulfills its prom
ise, the general enthusiasm is likely to
get a good wetting down. The Knights
have been extremely busy f5r some time
and the parades will in all probability
be worth seeing, especially for those
who have the parade habit. A large
part of Omaha is addicted, judging
