CHAPTER XXXIIL Exile.
Cays passed and the house had settled into
formal ways. The meals were at the usual
hours, to the minute. Philip went to the office
at the usual time, and at the usual time re
turned from it; everything had again entered
into its routl .c as before. But the relations
between husband and wife were not improved.
They met at meals, rarely else. At table a con
ventional conversation was maintained. Philip
occupied his bachelor apartments and ex
pressed no intention of leaving them. Beyond
the formal inquiries after Salome's health in
the morning, be took no interest in her condi
tion of mind and body. He did not perceive
that she still suffered, was becoming thin, pale
and v tj. He could not have invented a more
cruel torture than this daily life of chill inter
course between them, and Salome f elf that it
was becoming insupportable. She attended to
the household duties. She looked after
his comforts, saw that his room
was properly dusted, that his pa
pers, his books were always in the same
place, that his clothing was in order, that
strict punctuality was observed in all that con
cerned him he accepted this as of course and
was unaware that every element that con
duced to his wellbelng was not present natur
ally. He did not know that his wife entered
his room when he was awav and rectified the
little neglects and transpositions of the house
maid; he did not know how much time, and
how many tears were, given to his shirts and
his socks and collars. He was unaware of the
patient consideration devoted to the dinner, to
insure that he should have an appetizing meal
after his work in the office dunng the day. He I

WHEAT AND FLOUR TENDING DOWN
Split Cowhides on Markets as Kangaroo
and Calf Skins.
STOCK OF HIDES STILL ACCUMULATING
Office of PnTSBrmo Dispatch,
Satubday. May 25. 1889.
In produce lines the marked features of
the week, have been the improved demand
for choice creamery butter, new vegetables
and fruit, and the drop in eggs. Eggs are
slow at 2c per dozen below prices of last
week, while good butter is active at 1 to 2c
a pound higher figures.
There has been no time as yet when good
strawberries did not find readv customers at
16 to 20c, and plenty more than came would
have been easily sold on Friday and Saturday.
Good peas were also good stock. Notwith
standing the wet days of the week, commission
men report trade as satisfactory, and an im
provement over last week.
A leading jobber of cheese, butter and eggs
said to-day: "It is a long while since our stock
was so well cleaned up on Saturday."
Prospects are good for another advance in
butter next week, as markets here are bare,
and closed very firm at the advance. One of
the largest shippers advises us that he has been
losing at prevailing rates of the past week,
and will withhold stock until be can do better.
Grain nnd liny.
Markets give no signs of improvement, but
The promising prospects tor the new crops
all over this country and in Europe, has a de
pressing influence on trade. The signs for an
abundant year of cereals were never better at
this date. The only dangers to wheat not now
past are rust and a wet harvest A leading
. flour jobber reports sales more active this
;' ieek than last and the month of May better
Another says, "there is a great pressure from
Minneapolis millers to unload flonr, in view of
the extra profits for coming crop." A gentle-

I have never seen the time When the approach
ing Harvest promised sucn large results in
cereals, and it wonld not surprue me to see
wheat droD to 60c a bushel next fall.
The feature of theprovision trade worthy of
note is that hams have been Jc lower In Pitts
burg than in the West
While prices of all hog products continne so
low that margins are all wiped out except on
special cuts, a slight improvement in demand
isreported by packers lor the week. Markets
are steady to firm, and as stock is light in
packers' hands there is a better tone to trade.
Hogs closed in Chicago to-dav 510c higher
thari yesterday, with S4 254 70as the range.
Last week they touched a level 4050c below
Hides and Calfskins.
Stock continues to accumulate in the hands
of dealers and markets give no signs of im
provement Green calfskins never were as
rinll and cheap as they are now. A skin which
not many years ago would bring 50c to 60c now
goes begging at 18c. The shoe manufacturer
of this era is evidently figuring on bow much
stock he can cut out of leather. As the split
cowhide answers the same purpose of calfskins,
and furnishes a much larger surface for the
money, the temptation is too strong for the
average conusmer, and call skins are less and
less tn demand. The flanky part of the
skin will not cut to any advantage,
while there is nothing lost In tho
split cowhide. A leading dealer and
tanner on being asked if the new-fangled
leather was up to the old said, "I know nothing
In the leather line that equals the calfskin for
foot wear, excepting the hip part of the horse
hide. The reason whv it has been superseded
is that It cannot be cnt to as good advantage,
and in thee times of close margins and de
pressed trade, this has become an Important
factor to manufacturers." In the course of tho
interview it was developed tbat a large amount
of kancarno leather, so called, is made nut of
split cowhides. If 'all tbat is sold in the
voria's markets for kangaroo leather v, as the
genu-ne stuff, the kangaroo would have long
ago become an extinct specimen of the animal

did not entertain the suspicion that the regu
larity of the house was only effected by con
stant urgency and supervision.
That there was a change in the relations of
Philip and. his wife did not strike the outer
world, which had not been invited by him pre
viously to consider the nature and closeness of
those relations. In the presence of others
Philip was courteous and formal toward his
wife now, but he had been courteous and
formal toward her in public before. He had
not called upon the neighbors and acquaint
ances to rejoice with him because he had found
domestic happiness, he did not Invite them now
to lament with him because he had discovered
it to be chimerical.
He refused to Salome none of those atten
tions which are required by common politeness;
what she missed were those which spring out
of real affection. His behavior to her in pub
lic was unchanged, and he carried this manner
into his private interviews with her. Such in
terviews were now brief and business-like.
He no longer spoke to her about what was
past, he never referred to her father. He
never allowed her to entertain the smallest
hope that his behavior would change.
Philip rarely spoke to a servant, never ex
cept on business: and he was surprised one day
when the nurse ventured to intrude on his
privacy and ask leave to say something to him.
Philip gave the required permission un
graciously. Then the woman said, "Please, sir, the missus
be that onconsiderate about hersen that she'd
never think o' telling nobody about nowt that
was wrong with her. Ana so, I dare say, you
don't know, sir, that it is not all well wl' her.
Shoo has sudden faintive's, and they come on
ow'er often. Shoo makes light o't, but don't
better of It. I sed to her, shoo ought to tell
you. but shoo wouldn't. And, please, sir,
shoo's a good missus, and too precious to be let
slip through the fingers for not looking after
what's amiss i'time. So sir I've made bould
to say a word about it."
Philip was surprised, even shocked.
"I will see to It," he said, and then, "That
will do." He took occasion to speak with
Salome about her health, and now his eyes were
opened to see how delicate she had become.
Su'o admitted her fainting fits, but made light
of them. .
"I have been overtaxed, that is all, Philip.
I shall soon be quite myself again."
'you ha e had a good deal of anxiety, no
doubt, and that may account for it. Still it
will be a satisfaction to have an opinion. Bo
you care for Mr. Knight!"
"Oh, no, Philip he is very clever, hut too
young. I should not like to have Mr. Knight
here about me. But I assure you, it is nothing!
I mean there is nothing really the matter with
me. It used to be said that I had all the
physique of us two sisters, and Janet all the
"I wish you to have proper advice. You un
derstand. I wish it"
"Then, Philip, I will let anyone you like come
and see me, or I will go to anyone you recom
mend." "1 have no knowledge of doctors," he said al
"If I might have a choice," she hesitated.
-Of course you may in reason."
"There is Mr. JohnJJale: be wa dear Undo
Jeremiah's best friend, 'and he is Janet's
guardian. I always liked him, and he knows
about us sisters. Besides I do want to see him
and ask him what he thinks abont Janet; but
he is a long way off, he is at Bridlington. If
you think it would be extravagant sending so
far, I would go gladly and see him. Indeed I
daresay the journey will do me good."
"Very well," said Philip, "I will telegraph
for Mr. Dale."
"And then," added Salome, if you do not ob
ject, he can overhaul baby and see that the

There was nothing in the business situ
ation last week to require special notice.
Trading in all the leading commodities was
of good volume. In the speculative mar
kets stocks were dull and prices slightly
shaded. The sales aggregated 8,897 shares.
Petroleum put on a burst of activity and
moved on a higher level of values. It closed
steady. Sales of iron were fair, but prices
were still unsatisfactory. Business in mort
gages fell off somewhat as compared with
previous weeks. The number placed on
record was 184, representing 5327,000. The
largest was for 63,000, placed Saturday.
Kcal estate was active. Several important
deals were closed up. The number of trans
fers recorded was 247, and the amount of
money involved $599,188. The prospect is for a
good trade all summer and a boom in the fall.
There was a report on Fourth avenue Satur
d V that the McKelvy farm, above Edgewood,
hal been sold to a syndicate of East Enders for
about $3,000 an acre. Nobody seemed to know
anything definite about it but some were dis
posed to think there was good foundation for
the report as the property has several times
recently Deen mentioned in connection with a
deal of some kind. It is well located, con
venient to both Edgewood and Swlssvale, and
if sub-divided and put on the market it would
no doubt be quickly bought up. The tract con
tains SO or 60 acres.
There was an encouraging degree of activity
in the building trade last week. The number
of permits taken out was 56. The total cost of
the bouses is estimated at $149,080. The largest
permit was issued to the St Augustine Church
congregation for a two-story brick building
cost 25,300. The next largest was taken out

The feeling in favor ot widening DiamoAd
street is making good headway, notwithstand
ing the objections of a few of tho property
holders. Those who affect to think thatthe
proposed improvement would ruin them jean

than their property was worth 60 days ado, by
calling on Black & Baird, Fourth avenueThis
offer will hold good long enough to perrAit all
objectors to avail themselves x its terms. A
proposition so broad and fair, and involving so
much money, could be made only on the as
sumption well founded in this case, that the
improvement would more than double values
on the thoroughfare in question, it is the
strongest argument the wldcners have brought
to bear upon the subject When money talks,
. Within a few days there has been quite a re
vival in the real estate market, sales being
almost as numerous as at any previous time'
this season. This is no doubt due
abundance of idle capital, for which tne own
ers can find no other equally safe and (profit
able investment Money thus placed can be
made available almost any time, and nearly
always at a handsome gain. All resales re
cently made have been at an advance over the
original price. The demand is confined to no
particular section, but extends to both cities
and suburbs, and embraces all descriptions of
property unimproved tracts having the call. ,
Local bankers were unable to report anything
particularly new yesterday, but said every.
thing in their line of business wis in good
shape, and moving along smoothly, tfoutine
lines were well up. Discounting was rather
slack, but taking the week as a whole it was
very good. There was no change inVates, and
no scarcltv of small notes. As shown by the
Clearing House report the gain over the cor
responding week of last year was $L800,000.

darling is as sound as a bell. But there is no
need at all to telegraph. I know quite well
what is the matter with me. It is nothing that
any doctor can cure."
"What is it?"
"I have bad a good deal to worry me, to make
me unhappy, I cannot sleep, I am always,
thinking. I can see no way out of the trouble
If there were the tiniest thread to which I
could lay hold, then I should be well but there
is none. It reminds me of what I have read
about the belief of the North American In
dians have concerning their origin. They
were, they say, once in a vast black abyss in
the center of the earth, and there were tiny
fibers hanging from the roof, and some of
them laid hold of these libers, and following
them came to the surface of the earth and saw
the snn, but others never touched a depending
thread, and they wander on in timeless dark
ness, without a prospect, and without cogni
zance of life."
"And I am like these, only with this pang,
that I have been in the light. No there is no
fiber hanging down for me." She spoke timid
ly, and In a tone of half inquiry.
He did not answer.
"Philip, you must believe my word when T
say that I never knew till the night before you
heard It, that I was not what it had been given
out I was."
"We will not debate that matter again," said
Philip sharply. "It can lead to nothing."
"There Is then no fiber," she said sadly, and
John Sale arrived, bluff, good-natured, bois
terous. "Hallo I what is the matter with youT" was
his first salutatlou;and when he hadheard what
her aliments of body were she made light of
them to him he shook his head and said blunt

"Mamma was taken suddenly ill and died; it
was a dreadful shock to me. Then baby was
unwell, and I had to watch him night and day;
he would let no one else be with him."
"But the expression of your face is changed,
and neither your mother nor baby has done
that. You are in some trouble. A doctor is a
confessor. Come, what is up 7"
. Then she told him not all, but a good deal.
She told him who she was, and how she had
discovered her origin that her father was the
man who had started the swindle about Iodin
opolis, bnt that Beaple Yeo was not his real
name; he had assumed that in place of his true

"I see it all," said Dale. "I never met that
fellow Scbofield, but I knew Nicholas Penny

had no idea that the fellow Yeo, whom I met
at Bridlington, was the same. Now, my dear
child, I understand more than you have told
me. I shall not give you any medicine, but or

"I cannot 1 cannot leave baby."
'Then take baby with you."
Salome shook her head.
bhe also saw that nothing would do her good
save an escape from the crushing daily oppres
sion of Philip's coldness and stiff courtesy.
A day or two later she received a letter with
a foreign postmark, and she tore it open
eagerly, for she recognized her sister's hand
writing. The letter was short. Janet complained of
not getting any better; her strength was de
serting her. And she added: "Oh, Salome,
come to me, come to me if you can, and at
once. He is here."
There was no explanation as to who was im

So Salome was to go- She was now filled with
a feverish impatience to be off not that she
cared for herself, that the change might do her
good but because the leaving home would be
to her agony, and she was desirous to have the

him with her faithfuls sincere heart and meet
ing with rebuff only guiltless, yet regarded as
guilty, her self-justification disregarded, ber
word treated as unworthy of credence. No,
she could not endure the daily mortification.
and she knew that it would be well for her to
leave, hut for all that she knew that the leav
ing home would be to her the acutest torture
she could suffer. She must leave her dear
child, uncertain when she would see it again.
She did not iide from herself that if she left
she left not to return till some change had
taken place in Philip's feelings toward her.
She could not return to undergo the same
freezing process. But she raised no hopes on
what she knew of Philip's character. As far
as she was acquainted with it it was unbend
ing. Salome had the simple faith which leads
one to take a step that seems plain, without too
close a questioning as to ultimate consequence.
She had been told by the doctor whom she
trusted that she must go away from Merga
troyd. and immediately came the call of her
sister. To her mind this was a a divine indica
tion as to the course she must take, and she
prepared accordingly to take it
At the best of times it is not without misgiv
ing and heartache that we leave home, if only-
f or a holiday, and only for a few weeks; we dis
cover fresh beauties in home, new attractions,
things that require our presence and obstruct
our departing steps. A certain vague fear al
ways rises up lest we should never return, at
least that when we return something should be
changed that we value, something going wrong
that we havelef t right some one face be miss
ing that we hold to with infinite love. It is a
qualm bred of the knowledge of the uncer
tainty of all things in this most shifting w orld,
a qualm that always makes itself felt on the
eve of departure. With Salome this was more
than a qualm; she was going, she knew not to
what; she was going, she knew not for how
long; and the future drew a gray. Impenetrable
veil before her eyes she could not tell, should
she return, to what that return would he. She
did not reckon about her child. She could, she
would not be separated from it but whether
Philip would let the child go to her, or insist

A cab was procured from the nearest town,
tour miles distant, to take Salome to the sta
tion. Oh, the Ust clasp of her babel The tearful
eyes, the quivering mouth, the beating heart
the inner anguish; and then ashe ran down
stairs with her veil drawn over her face, Philip
encountered her on the landing and offered her
not his cheek, not his heart, hut his arm to
take her to the cab.
CHAPTER XXXIV. A Desolate House.
Philip was restless all that day alter Salome
had departed. He had remained at home in
the morning to see her off, and he did not re
turn to his work at the factory till after lunch.
At the office, he found it impossible to fix his
thoughts on the books and letters before him.
He was not an imaginative man, but day
dreams forced themselves before him now; Be
tween bis eyes and his ledger he saw the pale,
tearful face ot Salome through ber veil. He

to hide her wet cheeks from her fellow passen

she had talceu sandwiches with her and a little
bottle of sherry. When he traveled and he
was called from home occasionally there was
always a neat Jlttle package in white paper,
and a tiny white Jlask, pressed on him. Had
any of the servants thought of these things for
Salome? That she had thought of them for
herself was unlikely. When she reached town
what would she do? Would the porters be at
tentive? Would they take her wraps and little
odds and ends, and see her into a cab? And
would the flyman be civil, or would he seek to
take advantage of a lone lady, especially one
who looked ill and unhappy? Would not such
an one become a prey to his rapacity, and be
subject to rudeness?
What sort of weather would Salome have for
crossing the Channel ? She was going by Dover

the parlor maid waited. She stood a little way
off, behind his chair, while he ate. He was
conscious that she watched him at bis soup.
that she was counting how many spoonfuls

served when he added salt and pepper. She
was down on his plate like a vulture on a dead
camel, the moment be had taken bis last spoon

eating with her watching.
"Mary," said Philip, "did Mrs. Pennycome
qulck have any refreshments with her when
she left sandwiches and sherry?"
"I beg our pardon, sir. I don't know. I will
go and ask cook."
She did know. Philip was sure she did, but
made this an excuse to get out of the dimng
room and its oppressive restraints to the free
air of the kitchen,
Presently she returned. "Well?" asked Philip.
"Please, sir, no. Cook says she tried to press
them on Missis, but Missis, sir, wouldn't have
'em. She said she'd have no appetite."
"What is it?" asked Philip, as a dish was
"Curried rabbit sir."
"Curried rabbit? No, thank you."

Philip turned round. His imagination made
bim 'fancy that Mary was tittering, overcome
by the antics played by his mole.
Philip took wine, and as ha felt the glow of
the sherry pass down his throat, he wondered
whether Mary felt a glow of sympathy down
her throat, occasioned by seeing him drink the
Her presence was unbearable, and yet If he
dismissed her how was he to be served?

Mary as she removed his plate, and said, "How
is baby this afternoon? Does he fret much at
bis mother's being away?"
"I beg your pardon, sir, I don't know. Til
run and ask nurse."
Of course she knew, but she made this an
excuse for getting out of the dining-room into
the freer air of the nursery.
Never, In all his life, bad Philip found him
self more impatient of the silence imposed on
him, more desirous to hear his own voice. In
his lodgings he had eaten his meals alone a
chop and some potatoes and he had had a
book or a paper at his side while eating; the
landlady or the slavie bad not stood in the
rpom watching him, observing the parting in
his hair behind his head, making fun of bis
mole, impatient to dust his collar, In his
lodgings he had drunk beer or London Cooper
now be drank claret sherry, port; but be
would have drunk even water if he might only
have been alone.
"No, thank you, no dessert!" He jumped up
he was eager to leave the room.
"Please, sir, any cheese?"
"No, thank you. no cheese."
He ran away from bis half-finished dinner to
his own study, where be could be alone, avuy
from the insufferable Mary.
Then he rang the bell.
"You may bring me up the claret and port
here and the preserved ginger," ho ordered.
Then thought he had acted absurdly, and
would have countermanded the order had he
not been ashamed to confess how unhinged he
He sat in his own room, with his claret glass
in bis hand, dreaming, looking into the fire.
"Where was Salome pow? Was she think

Then he wondered whether she were cold,
and hungry, and tired. She bad not slept the
previous night She had been busy packing, or
going in and out of baby's room, to kiss the
little sleeping face, or to pray by the crib, or
let the dew of her tears fall over it
Philip stood up. He left his glass unfinished,
and went upstairs to the nursery. He found
the door ajar, and the room empty. The nurse
had gone down for a talk in the kitchen no
aoubt about Master, and Mary was telling her
about bis mole, and the spots of dust on his
He entered the nursery and stood by the crib,
and looked at the sleeping child.
Little Philip was now quite well again, and
was very sound asleep. He was undoubtedly a
Pennycomequlck. He had dark hair, and long
dark eyelashes. But surely surely there was
some trace of his mother in the tiny face. It
could not be that he did not bear in him some
thing of her, Philip looked intently at the
child, and tried to find out in him some feature
of bis wife.
There, on this side of the crib, had Salomes
hands rested that night when little Philip was
ill. Philip, the father. Knew the exact spot
where her hands bad rested and where her fore
bead had leaned, with the re'd gold hair falling
down over the side upon the bedding. Where
the white left hand had clutched, with the gold
ring sparkling on it there now Philip placed
his han. and there streamed up to him from the
crib of his child a magnetic influence that put
him en rapport with his absent wife, brought to
him a soothing sense of oneness with her who
was far away, and filled his heart with regret
The child began to cry.
Then Philip rang the bell, and when the nurse
arrived, red and blowing t

to consider his own conduct toward Salome,
and, now only, saw that it did not bear the

the dishonor of relationship with such a man
'as Beaple Yeo, a rogue after whom the police
had been in quest more than once. In vain did
he poke the fires of his wrath at the trickery of
bis marriage, he could not convince himself
that Salome had been privy to it; and If not
privy Xa it, what right had he to treat her with
the severity he had exercised? But not even
then did it occur to him that the main element
of bis wrath was supplied by his own wounded
The discovery of her parentage must bave
been to Salome a crushing humiliation. What
justification was there for his adding to ber
burden by his reproaches and coldness? She
could not undo the past unmake her relation
ship. His anger, his resentment could not im
prove the situation, could not shake the truth
of the hateful fact that he was allied to so great
a scoundrel. Though she had been married
under a wrong name, that would not invalidate
the marriage even if he wished it even If he
wished it! Did be wish it?
He thought about Uncle Jeremiah's will, and
how that by it Salome had been left almost
sole legatee: how that the mill and everything
had been given to her and how that in a mys
terious manner that will had been cancelled.
The old haunting suspicion that bis aunt bad
meddled with ana defaced the will returned.
He thought ot her behavior when he allowed
her to see that he entertained a suspicion; of
her evasion of her promise; of her laxity of
principle: and he could not shake off the
thought that it wasquite possible that through
her Salome bad been defrauded of her rights.
If so, had he any right to complain if he bad
been deceived? How did Mrs. Sldebottom
show beside Salome? And he be. Philip had
he shown in generous colors'either?
It was said of that distinguished epicure, the
Marquis de Cussy, "Iestomac da M. n'a
jamais broncbe." and the same may be said of
most consciences but not of all. As we have
seen even Mrs. Sblebottom's conscience once
felt a twinge at the same time when consciences
generally do feel twinges, when too late to re
dress wrong actions. So now did Philip, as he
sat over the fire with his claret glass in his
hand, become awaro that lie had acted with
undue severity, and he spilt the claret on the
Next day Philip went to the old bedroom
which he and his wifo had occupied till he
changed his quarters. He found the house
maid there, who seemed startled at seeing him
"Please, sir, Pm drawing down the blinds,
because of the sun."
"I will trouble you to leave the blinds up."
said Philip. "I do not choose to have the
house the room look as though someone in it
were dexdj Here by the way, my rpom down
stairs will needs thorough turn out I will re
turn to this room: at all events for a time.'"
"Very well, sir."
She left the chamber. He stood in it and
looked about bim. Salome had left everything
tidy. Some of her drawers were open, not
many Were locked. Most of her little private
treasures bad been removed.
Where was the photograph on a stand of Un
cle Jeremiah? It bad no doubt been taken
away by her. Where were the three little owls
sitting on a pen wiper? It was gone and the
Christmas cards that bad stood ontbe chimney
piece, and the ugly glazed yellow flower vase,
given ber, on her birthday, by the cook.
The clock on the chimney-piece was stopped.
Salome bad wound that up regularly; her hand
was.no longer there, and It had been allowed to
run down. The room was dead without the
tick of the clock. Philip wound it up and set
the pendulum swinging. It ticked again, but
in a formal, weary manner, unlike the brisk
and cheerful tick of old.
The room had a cold, unfurnished look with
out Salome's knick-knacks trifles in them-
selvesjbut giving an air of refinement and
cbeerines to the apartment He went over to
the dressing table. No combs and brushes, no
hairpins, bottles of hair oil and wash there
simply a table with a looking glass on it One
little glass was there, but no flowers in it; and
hitherto it had never failed to contain some
even in winter. With what ingenuity had
Salome kept that little glass on the dressing
table bright in winter at times with holly only,
or ivy leaves or moss and a scarlet Jew's ear.
It was the same downstairs. There the flowers
were ragged and faded in the vase. Salome
was awav, who had rearranged them every
The room smrtt musty, and Philip threw up
the window. He stood at it and looked our,
dreamily. Where was Salome now? Was she
in Switzerland? Had she any heart to look at
the mountains? Would the wonderful scenery
be any joy to her alone?
"I can never dine as I did yesterday." said
Philip. "I will ask Tomkins in."
That day be did invite Tomkins, his head
traveler. Bat he was irritated with Tomkins
and angry with the maid, because Tomkins'
seat had been put at the end of the table, in
Salome's place; and Tomkins was a different
object to his eyes to rest on from Salome. The
dinner passed wearily. Philip was not indeed,
concerned about the parlor maid examining the
mole on his neck, but he had to make conver
sation for Tomkins, and to listen to Tomkins'
commercial room tales, and to be civil to Tom
kinf. After dinner Tomkins was In no hurry to go.

the port grew confidential and Philip becama
tired, every minute more.tired. of TomkJn
and was vexed with himself for having aske
Tomkins in and vowed be wonld dina by him
self next evening. Then Tomkins finding IS
difficult to rouse Philip's interest and excite
laugh, began to tell rather broad stories ana
was undeterred by Philip's, stony sure till
Philip suddenly stood np. rang for coffee and
said It was time to adjourn to another room
and so cut Tomkins short
But even after Tomkins had been got inter
tbe drawing room and had been chilled thers
by its size and coldness and the inattention of
his host be showed little Inclination to depart,
and threw ont hints that he could strum an ac
companiment to himself on tbe"planny" and
sing a song, sentimental or humorous. If Mr.
Pennycomequlck would like to hear him. But
Philip pleaded headache and became at length,
so freezing as to force Tomkins to take his
Philip did not feel it necessary to accompany
his head commercial into tbe hall; but Mary
was there to assist him into his great coat, and
find him his hat, and give him a light for his
"Well, Mary," said Tomkins, pleasantly.
"Thank you, Jlary; to take a light from yoa
warms tbe heart Mary. Pm as blind as a.
beetle in the dark, and 'pon my word, dear, I
don't know my right hand from my left In tho
dark. You wouldn't object would you there
a dear just to set me on my way home, with
my nose in the right direction, and then my
cigar light will carry me on? Can't go wrong
if I follow that But it is the first step, Mary

Then be booked his arm into bers, and tha
demnre Mary had no objection to take just half
a dozen steps along the road with the affable
Mr. Tomkins who was a widower and to
leave tbe hall door ajar as she escorted him
part of his way home.
Philip sat in the drawing room in bad humor.
It was dull dining by himself: it was insuffera
ble dining with Tomkins He could not lnvita
brother manufacturers to alne with him every
evening. What must he do? He wonld return
to nlain food and a book at his solitary meal,
and dismiss the critical parlor maid till he re
quired his plate to be changed.
Philip rang the bell. Tbe teacuDSwere left
on the tabic His bell remained unanswered.
He rang again. It was still unnoticed. Then
be angrily went down into tbe hall, and found
the door ajar. He called to the servants In tho
kitchen for Mary. Tne housemaid appeared.
"Please, sir, she's gone out a moment to post a
What! at this time of night?"
"It was most particular; her mother bs
dreadful porely, sir, and Mary do take on abont
"Go to bed lock up," ordered Philip; and ha
stood in the hall while the frightened domes
tics filed past
Then he turned down tbe gas and returned
to. tbe drawing room. He would hear Mary
when she came in by tbe ball door, and would
at once give her her dlsmissaL
He sat waiting. Here was fresh troubla
come on him, through his wife's absence Ha
would have to sea that bis servants were kept
in proper order; that they kept proper hours.
He bad hardly resumed his seat before ha
heard steps in the ball, and then on the stairs.
Certainly not the tread of Mary; not light and
not stealthy, but firm and ponderous
What step could it bef Tomkins returning
to tell one of bis good stories, or to ask for
soda-water? He listened, and hesitated
whether to rise or not. It must be the step of
Tomkins; no one else wonld venture to come
in at this time. The step was arrested at tha
drawing-room door; then Philip stood up, and
as he did so the door was thrown open, and
Uncle Jeremiah stood on the threshold, look
ing at bim. He knew the old man at once,
though he was changed, and his hair white.
"Philip," said Jeremiah, "where isyour wif ef
Where is Salome?"
Philip was too much astonished to answer.
Then said Jeremiah sternly: "Give an ao
count of thy stewardship, for thou mayest ba
no longer steward."
