OO ———————————————————————————————————————
You had a little hurt today,
I know it by your face,
. A hurt you hoped to hide away,
And yet it left a trace.
You tried to wear the usual smile,
Yet futilely you tried—
That little trouble all the while
Was hurting you inside.
My, my, I wish that money, too,
Would earn the interest
That ordinary troubles do
We carry in our breast!
Inside ourselves deposited
They grow, and grow and grow,
But not in gold—a load of lead
Is all we ever know.
Now, I've a simple little plan
I’ve used with little ills,
I'm glad to tell to any man
Who's blue around the gills:
Just ask yourself: “This little ache,
This trouble, anyhow,
Just how much difference will it make
A year or so from now ?”’
What was it that you used to want?
What was it made you sore?—
Your woes a year ago you can't
Remember any more!
The thought of troubles you forgot
Will cut the new in half;
And then, I bet, as like as not
You will not smile—but laugh!
—Douglas Malloch.
Daphne was singing to herself when
she came through the painted gate in
the back wall. She was singing part-
ly because it was June, and Devon,
and she was seventeen, and partly be-
cause she had caught a breath taking
glimpse of herself in the long mirror
as she had flashed through the hall at
home, and it seemed almost too good
to be true that the radiant small per-
son in the green muslin frock with the
wreath of golden hair bound about her
head, and the sea-blue eyes laughing
back at her, was really Miss Daphne
Chiltern. Incredible, incredible luck
to look like that, half Dryad, half
Kate Greenaway—she danced down
the turf path to the herb-garden,
swinging her great wicker basket like
a small mad thing.
“He promised to buy me a bonsie
blue ribbon,” carrolled Daphne, all her
own ribbons flying.
“He promised to buy me a
He promised to buy me a bonnie blue rib-
To tie up——"
The song stopped as abruptly as
though some one had struck it from
her lips. A strange man was kneeling
by the beehive in the herb-garden. He
was looking at her over his shoulder,
at once startled and amused, and she
saw that he was wearing a rather
shabby tweed suit and that his face
was oddly brown against his close-
cropped, tawny hair. He smiled, his
teeth a strong flash of white.
“Hello!” he greeted her, in a tone at
once casual and friendly.
Daphne returned the smile uncer-
tainly. “Hello,” she replied gravely.
The strange man rose easily to his
feet, and she saw that he was very tall
and carried his head rather splendid-
ly, like the young bronze Greek in Un-
cle Roland’s study at home But his
eyes—his eyes were strange—quite
dark and burned out. The rest of him
looked young and vivid and adventur-
ous—but his eyes looked as though the
adventure were over, though they
were still questing.
“Were you looking for any one?”
she asked, and the man shook his
head, laughing.
“No one in particular, unless it was
Daphne’s soft brow darkened. “It
couldn’t possibly have been me,” she
said in a rather stately small voice,
“because you see, I don’t know you.
Perhaps you didn’t know that there is
no one living in Green Gardens now ?”
“Qh, yes, I knew. The Fanes have
left for Ceylon, haven’t they?”
“Sir Harry left two weeks ago, be-
cause he had to see the old governor
before he sailed, but Lady Audrey on-
ly left last week. She had to close
the London house, too, so there was a
great deal to do.”
“I see. And so Green Gardens is
deserted 7”
“It is sold,” said Daphne, with a
small quaver in her voice, “just this
afternoon. I came over to say good-
by to it, and to get some mint and lav-
ender from the garden.”
“Sold ?”” repeated the man, and there
was an agony of incredulity in the
stunned whisper. He flung out his
arm against the sun-warmed bricks of
the high wall as if to hold off some in-
vader. “No, no; they’d never dare to
sell it.” "
“I’m glad you mind so much,” said
Daphne softly. “It’s strange that no-
body minds but us, isn’t it? I cried
at first—and then I thought that it
would be happier if it wasn’t lonely
and empty, poor dear—and then, it
was such a beautiful day, that I for-
got to be unhappy.”
The manbes towed a wretched smile
on her. “You hardly conveyed the
impression of unrelieved gloom as you
came around that corner,” he assur-
ed her.
“I—I haven’t a very good memory
for being unhappy,” Daphne confessed
remorsefully, a lovely and guilty rose
staining her to her brow at the mem-
ory of that exultant chant.
He threw back his head with a sud-
den shout of laughter.
“These are glad tidings! I'd rather
find a pagan than a Puritan at Green
Gardens any day. Let’s both have a
poor memory. Do you mind if I
smoke ?”
“No,” she replied, “but do you mind
if I ask what you are doing here?”
“Not a bit.” He lit the stubby brown
pipe, curving his hand dexterously to
shelter it from the little breeze. He
had the most beautiful hands that she
had ever seen, slim and brown and fine
—they looked as though they would
be miraculously strong—and miracu-
lously gentle. “I came to see—I came
to see whether there was ‘honey still
for tea,” Mistress Dryad!”
bonnie blue
“Honey—for tea?” she echoed won-
deringly, “was that why you were
looking at the hive?”
He puffed meditatively, “Well—
partly. It’s a quotation from a poem.
Ever read Rupert Brooke?”
“Qh, yes, yes.” Her voice tripped
in its eagerness. “I know one by
«+f I should die think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall
be » 0
He cut in on the magical little voice
“Ah, what damned nonsense! Do
you suppose he’s happy, in his foreign
field, that golden lover? Why should
not even the dead be hcmesick? No,
no—he was sick for home in Germany
when he wrote that poem of mine--
he’s sicker for it in heaven, Ill war-
rant.” He pulled himself up swiftly
at the look of amazement in Daphne’s
eyes. “I've clean forgotten my man-
ners,” he confessed ruefully. “No,
don’t get that flying look in your eyes
—1 swear that I'll be good. It’s along
time—it’s a long time since I've talk-
ed to any one who needed gentleness.
If you knew what need I had of it,
you'd stay a little while, I think.”
“Of course, I'll stay,” she said. “I'd
love to, if you want me to.”
“] want you to more than I have
ever wanted anything that I can re-
member.” His tone was so matter-
of-fact that Daphne thought that she
must have imagined the words. “Now,
can’t we make ourselves comfortable
for a little while? I'd feel safer if
you weren't standing there ready for
instant flight! Here's a nice bit of
grass—and the wall for a back—-"
Daphne glanced anxiously at the
green muslin frock. “It’s—it’s pret-
ty hard to be comfortable without
cushions,” she submitted diffidently.
The man yielded again to laughter.
“Are even Dryads afraid to spoil their
frocks? Cushions it shall be. There
are some extra ones in the chest in the
East Indian room, aren’t there?”
Daphne let the basket slip through
her fingers, her eyes black through
sheer surprise.
“But how did you know—how did
you know about the lacquer chest?”
she whispered breathlessly.
“Qh, devil take me for a blundering
ass!” He stood considering her for-
lornly for a moment, and then shrug-
ged his shoulders, with the brilliant
and disarming smile. “The game’s up,
thanks to my inspired lunacy! But
I'm going to trust you not to say that
you've seen me. I know about the
lacquer chest because I always kept
my marbles there.”
“Are you—are you Stephen Fane?”
At the awed whisper the man bowed
low, all mocking grace, his hand on his
heart—the sun burnishing his tawny
“Oh-h!” breathed Daphne. She bent
to pick up the wicker basket, her
small face white and hard.
“Wait!” said Stephen Fane. His
face was white and hard too. “You are
right to go—entirely, absolutely right
—but I am going to beg you to stay.
I don’t know what you’ve heard about
me—however vile it is, it’s less than
the truth——"
“I have heard nothing of you,” said
Daphne, holding her gold wreathed
head high, “but five years ago 1 was
not allowed to come to Green Gardens
for weeks because I mentioned your
name. I was told it was not a name
to pass decent lips.”
Something terrible leaped in those
burned-out eyes—and died.
“I had not thought they would use
their hate to lash a child,” he said.
“T'hey were quite right—and you, too.
Good night.”
“Good night,” replied Daphne clear-
ly. She started down the path, but at
its bend she turned to look back—be-
cause she was seventeen, and it was
June, and she remembered his laugh-
ter. He was standing quite still by
the golden straw beehive, but he had
thrown one arm across his eyes, as
though to shut out some intolerable
sight. And then, with a soft little
rush she was standing beside him.
“How—how do we get the cush-
ions?” she demanded breathlessly.
Stephen Fane dropped his arm, and
Daphne drew back a little at the sud-
den blaze of wonder in his face.
“Oh,” he whispered voicelessly.
“Oh, you Loveliness!” He took a ste
toward her, and then stood still,
clinching his brown hands. Then he
thrust them deep in his pockets,
standing very straight. “I do think,”
he said carefully, “I do think you had
better go. The fact that I have tried
to make you stay simply proves the
particular type of rotter that I am.
Good-by—TI’ll never forget that you
came back.”
“I'm not going,” said Daphne stern-
ly. “Not if you beg me. Not if you
are a devil out of hell. Because you
need me. And no matter how many
wicked things you have done, there
can’t be anything as wicked as going
away when some one needs you. How
do we get the cuhsions?”
“Oh, my wise Dryin!” His voice
broke on laughter, but Daphne saw
that his lashes were suddenly bright
with tears. “Stay, then—why, even I
cannot harm you. God himself can’t
grudge me this little space of wonder
—he knows how far I’ve come for it—
hew I've fought and struggled and
ached to win it—how in dirty lands
and dirty places I've dreamed of sum-
mer twilight in a still garden— and
England, England!”
“Didn’t you dream of me?” asked
Daphne wistfully, with a little catch
of reproach.
He laughed again, unsteadily.
“Why, who could ever dream of you,
my Wonder? You are a thousand,
thousand dreams come true.”
Daphne bestowed on him a tremu-
lous and radiant smile. “Please let
us get the cushions. I think I am a
little tired.”
“And I am a graceless fool! There
used to be a pane of glass cut out in
one of the south casement windows.
Shall we try that?” :
“Please, yes. How did you find it,
Stephen?” ~ She saw again that thrill
of wonder on his face, but his voic
was quite steady. )
“Y didn’t find it; I did it! It wasun-
commonly useful, getting in that way
semetimes, I can tell you. And, by
the Lord Harry, here it is. Wait a
minute, Loveliness—I'll get through
and open the south door for you—no
‘chance that way of spoiling the frock.”
| He swung himself up with the swift,
} sure grace of a cat, smiled at her—
vanished—it was hardly a minute lat-
er that she heard the bolts dragging
back in the south door, and he flung
it wide.
The sunlight streamed into the deep
hall and stretched hesitant fingers in-
to the dusty quiet of the great East
Indian room, gilding the soft tones of
the faded chintz, touching very gent-
ly the polished furniture and the dim
prints on the walls. He swung across
the threshold without a word, Daphne
tiptoeing behind him.
“How still it is,” he said in a hushed
voice. “How sweet it smells!”
“It’s the potpourri in the Canton
jars,” she told him shyly. “I always
made it every summer for Lady Au-
drey—she thought I did it better than
any one else. I think so too.” She
flushed at the mirth in his eyes, but
held her ground sturdily. “Flowers
are sweeter for you if you love them
—even dead ones,” she explained
were not sweet for you.” Her cheeks
burned bright at the low intensity of
his voice, but he turned suddenly
away. “Oh, there she sails—there she
sails still, my beauty. Isn’t she the
proud one though—straight into the
wind!”. He hung over the little ship
model, thrilled as any child. “The fly-
ing Lady—sée where it’s painted en
I was seven—he had it from his fath-
er when he was six. Lord, how proud
I was!” He stood back to see it bet-
ter, frowning a little. “One of those

the new owners are probably not sea-
farers! The lacquer chest is at the
far end, isn’t it? Yes, here. Are
three enough—four? We're off!” But
still he lingered, sweeping the great
room with his dark eyes. “It’s fuli of
all kinds of junk—they never liked it
—no period, you see. I had the run
of it—I loved it as though it were
ailve; it was alive, for me. From
Elizabeth’s day down, all the family
adventurers brought their treasures
here—beaten gold and hammered sil-
ver—mother-of-pearl and peacock
feathers, strange woods and stranger
spices, porcelains and embroideries
and blown glass. There was always
an adventurer somewhere in each gen-
eration—and however far he wander-
ed, he came back to Green Gardens to
bring his treasures home. When I
was a yellow-headed imp of Satan,
hiding my marbles in the lacquer
chest, I used to swear that when I
grew up I would bring home the finest
treasure of all, if I had to search the
world from end to end. And now the
last adventurer has come home to
Green Gardens—and he has searched
the world from end to end—and he is
“No, no,” whispered Daphne.
has brought home the greatest treas-
ure of all, that adventurer. He has
brought home the beaten gold of his
love, and the hammered silver of his
dreams—and he has brought them
from very far.”
“He had brought greater treasures
than this to you, lucky
the last of the adventurers. “You can
never be sad again—you will always
be gay and proud—because for just
of her hair and the silver of her
voice.” :
wicked girl, and I hope that he will
talk some more. And please, I think
we will go into the garden and see.”
All the way back down the flagged
quiet—even after he had arranged the
cushions against the rose-red wall,
even after he had stretched out at full
length beside her and lighted another
After a while he said, staring at the
straw hive: “There used to. be a jol-
ly little fat brown one that was a
great pal of mine. How long do bees
“lI don’t know,” she answered
vaguely, and after a long pause, full
of quiet, pleasant odors from the bee-
garden, and the sleepy happy noises
of small things tucking themselves
away for the night, and the faint but
poignant drift of tobacco smoke, she
asked: “What was it about ‘honey
still for tea?”
“Oh, that!” He raised himself on
one elbow so that he could see her
better. “It was a poem I came across
while I was in East Africa; some one
sent a copy of Rupert Brooke’s things
to a chap out there, and this one fast-
ened itself around me like a vice. It
starts where he’s sitting in a cafe in
Berlin with a lot of German Jews
around him, swallowing down their
beer; and suddenly he remembers. All
the lost, unforgetable beauty comes
back to him in that dirty place; it gets
him by the throat. It got me, too.
‘“ ‘Ah, God! to see the branches stir
Across the moon at Grantchester!
To smell the thrilling-sweet and rotten
Unforgettable, unforgotten
River-smell, and hear the breeze
Sobbing in the little trees.
Oh, is the water sweet and cool,
Gentle and brown, above the peol?
And laughs the immortal river still
Under the mill, under the mill?

And Certainty? and Quiet kind

“That’s beautiful,” she said, “but it

it hurts, little Golden Heart in quiet

like rats in the trap of the ugly fever
we called living, it was black torture

wonder if there was honey still for
“Stephen, won't you tell me about
it—won’t that help?”
And suddenly some one else looked
at her through those haunted eyes—a
little boy, terrified and forsaken. “Oh,
I have no right to soil you with it.
But I came back to tell some one
about it—1I had to, I had to. I had to
wait until father and Audrey went

away. I knew they’d hate to see me—
she was my step-mother, you know,
and she always loathed me, and he
never cared. In East Africa I used to
stay awake at night thinking that I
might die, and that no one in England
would ever care—no one would know
how I loved her. It was worse than
dying to think of that.” :
“But why couldn’t you come back to
Green Gardens—why couldn’t you
make them see, Stephen?”
“Why, what was there to see? When
they sent me down from Oxford for
that dirty little affair, I was only nine-
teen—and they told me I had disgrac-
ed my name and Green Gardens and
my country—and I went mad with
pride and shame, and swore I'd drag
their precious name through the dirt
of every country in the world. And I
‘did—and I did.”
His head was buried in his arms,
but Daphne heard. It seemed strange
indeed to her that she felt no shrink-
ing and no terror; only great pity for
what he had lost, great grief for what
| he might have had. For a minute she
forgot that she was Daphne, the heed-
less and gay-hearted, and that he was
a broken and an evil man. For a min-
ute he was a little lad, and she was his
lost mother.
