More than on in tho courso of tins
Aisfory it has boon mentioned that the
windows of tho artist's chiimborH looked
ont upon a river. In truth, it was almost
impossible, to rn mivwhero in Maxoy's
rooms and escape its presonco. He had
chosen his suit for the free, open pros
pect it afforded, and he had sketched and
painted a landscape from this lofty situ
ation a dozeu tinu s. It mattered not in
what part of the honso one was, there
wad always something to remind him of
tho river.
The sweeping curve made by tho
stream just above tho center of the city
broadened tho otherwise narrow belt of
water into a lakelike expanse and opened
a vista of miles to the eye. Over this
wido snrfaoo tho wind camo and went
unopposed. It was ever rattling at the
windows of the artist's rooms. To awake
of a winter's night and hear the uneasy
fhost tapping with his chill hand for
admission was to bo reminded of tho icy
water (lowing steadily with the tido
down between tho great stono walls in
tho darkness.
The tido roso and fell in tho river for
miles above the city. In the dead of
winter it lifted tho solid white Furface,
like a mafblo floor, through 10 feet
twice a day. After a thaw, when the
ico broke up, even in Maxey's rooms,
could bo heard tho great blocks grind
ing against tho Htones. These floating
masses drifted variously, as the tido ran
biiok up the stream, to crowd the nar
row space between the banks above tho
sweeping curve or down beneath the
bridgos and between the hulls of innu
merable vessels out to sea. Only in tho
space contiguous to the house in Balla
voine place they remained stationary,
for just here a configuration in the wall
gave a whirling motion to tho water.
Tho floating block that drifted too near
this sput was inevitably drawn in, and
oneo in there it. staid, pounded up and
down, up and down against tho mason
ry and tho decaying piles till it was
melted quite awny.
It was a dark and mysterious recess,
this little section of tho river beneath
the artist's windows. Somehow the
building stood about it in such away as
to cut off tho sunlight, except pcrchanco
at high noon. It was always gloomy
close to the wall. Even when tho river
sparkled brightest in the smiling sum
mer days, just in here there was a drea
ry spot. Here the water swirled and did
not dance in little waves. Here, too,
had oice been tho end of a wharf or
wooden structure of some Kind. A few
of the venerable timbers yet remained
imbedded firmly in the river's bottom.
Tho blackened ends, projecting above
tho surface, deepened tho somber and
forlorn effect.
"fbt honso in which Maxey lived did
not rise directly from the river walL It
stood back and left a little space a
mean and parsimonious space utilized
only Iry housewives for the hanging out
of clothes. A high picketed fence pre
vented the contiguity of tho river from
being dangerous.
Occasionally tho janitor of tho build
ing, who was supposed to have a protect
ing eye for all that appertained to it,
omerged from the basement whero he
lived into the yard to oast about him a
reassuring glance. Ono morning in Do
cembev, when he came, a trifling altera
tion in tho familiar prospect caught his
attention and aroused his wonder. The
Upper ends of two pickets in the hi;:li
fenc6were broken short off near the top.
One of tho several pieces lay in tho snow
at the bottom of the fence; the other
still hung by a sliver from its place. The
Janitor shook the woodwork, and his
mystification was increased when he
found that tho two broken pickets were
loose. This was such an inexplicable

matter .thitt he did not oenso to wonder
at it. After he had exhausted all his
theories and had pursued a fruitless in
vestigation till ho was forced from lack
of untried moms to givo it up, being
after tho time when he mado tho discov
ery, it would still recur to his mind.
Sometimes he would look suspiciously
into the river just without the fence, as
if ho raoro than half believed that it
might givo tho explanation for which he

tho breaking of tho pickets it put a wall
of ice upon its surface, the totter tokeop
out prying eyes. But still the two bro
ken pioketH rose up shorter than their fel
lows to remind tho curious janitor of the
something unexplained.
Tho spring came, and the sun molted
the ico. It lingered in the pool without
tho fence longer than anywhore else, as
if it wero loath to go. For a long time
the bitter breath of tho dying winter
and tho warming rays from tho April sky
fought for tho maatery hero. It was a

"Such," thought Ellen, "is her boldness
and effrontery" attempted to become
a worshiper at tho shrine of the artist's
sister, but Miss Maxey mot all her at
tempts to win her over with an icy reti
OSnoe which move than once aroused the
latent fire in tho widow's eyes.
Dr. Lamar, usually so gay and con
versational in tho artist's rooms, hardly
uttered a word. Ho sat beside Mrs. For
sythoon tho sofa as grave and serious as
if ho had been assisting at a funeral.
The difference was so marked and so
significant that all three of his friends
were Impressed by the Fact It was the
last matter under the circumstances that
either Julian Maxey or his young wife
would have thought of mentioning iji
his presence, but Ellen somehow felt
that she had a battle to fight with an
unscrupulous woman, and that any
means wore justifiable. She took advan
tage of tho opportunity afforded her by
this faet to plant a covert thorn in the
breast, of her enemy.
"I am sure," she said in an audible
voice to her brother while Mrs. For
sythe was saying something to Annette,
"tho doctor is not well tonight."
"Not well;"' echoed Maxey.
"No; don't you notice how constrain
ed and different from his ordinary self
he is? Ho is usually so ohatty and agroe-
ablo. Some shadow seems to have come
in with him. What can it be? Is he not
happy?' '
"Hushl" whispered the startled Max
ey, perfectly unconscious of his sister's
duplicity. "She will hear yon."
"She. Who? I don't understand yon. "
Miss Maxey addressed herself immedi
ately to Annette.
"Don't you notice that the doctor is
not himself tonight, dear?"
"Oh, indeed, is ho not?" cried the
Willow Fotsythe, turning with an ad
mirable appearance of solicitude to
ward her affianced. "Do yon hear what
they aae saying, Eustace?"
"No. What?"
"That you are not at all like your
self tonight. I hope yon are not going
to to ill, too, because of my bad exam
ple." '
"I was not aware," returned Lamar
coldly, "that I exhibited any symptoms
of tho sort. "
The tone of the reply was so rough
and discourteous that tho color came
into Mrs. Forsythe's cheeks. Sho bit
her lip, and her eyes moistened.
"She loves him," thought watchful
Elleu, with a jealous glow at the heart.
"She loves him. There is no doubt of
Lamar seemed to havo instantly re
pented his own harshness, for ho at once
Went on, with an assumption of careless
"Tho fact, is, while you havo been
talking I have been dreaming. I may
havo looked sick, but tho truth is I was
abstracted. "
"Some new theory in practice, I sup
pose," suggested Maxey.
"No, "said Lamar, straightening up
and m;ikiiig an evident effort to bo en
tertaining. "It was something odder
than that something a good deal more
interesting. "
"Uf course that is meant to arouse
our curiosity aud make us bog yon to
tell us about it," said Airs. Forsythe
"I don't know abor.t that," Lamar
returned, with a slight frown. "I am
not so stir.- that I should be justified in
discussing a professional secret oven
among friends."
"It's a secret then I" ex
claimed Maxey. "Oh, then we must 1
toldl Professional scen ts are always
the most entertaining of secrets, Out
with it, Lamar!"
"Well," replied tho physician, "as
long as yon Understand that it is not a
matter to be talked about outside, I
don't know that I need hesitate. Pre
pare yourselves for a most curious and
mysterious affair. "
"I think I may say that everybody is
sufficiently prepared," said Maxey.
"Let us havo tho whole mystery at
once. "
"Dictum factum! You shall. I will
save my conscience by not calling any
names. A certain lawyer of this city
called at my office this morning and in
a very cautious and enigmatical manner
informed mo that he wanted to have
niy opinion on a matter of vast impor
tance to himself and others intere sted.
'First of all,' said he, 'I want to know
if yon can tell the comparative age of a
Boor on tho human body?' To so very
vague and general a question I told him
I certainly could give him no satisfac
tory answer. 'Very well, ' said he, 'I
will postpone my question until after I
have presented my case. I want you to
got into my carriage. I will then take
you to a place where there is a scar
which I wish to have examined. I shall
introduce you under a false name, and
it is not to bo known that you are a
physician. All you have to do is to as
sent to everything I say, and when I
show you the scar scrutinize it as close
ly as you can. Afterward I shall sisk
yon for your opinion.
" 'I will tell you, ' ho went on, 'that
this is a most important case, and that
you aro only ono of several prominent
physicians whose opinions aro to be
asked. Wo wish and intend to make
this matter as much of a certainty and
to have it partake OS lit'iloof the nature
of guesswork as medical science will
permit. ,aj do not want, to conceal any
thing from yon, however. There is a
ban possibility that at, some time or
other you may be called upon as an ex
port to repeat tho opinion which you
shall give mo in court. If SO, We shall
see that you are amply recompensed for
any loss of time or Interference with your
business that such a necessity would oc
casion. And in view of this possibility
I wish you to roeolloct just how this
matter was presented by mo to you, and
that so far from endeavoring to control
your opinion I havo not even told you
whether it would bo for our interest to
find this scar to bo old or recent'
Why, what is tho tronblo, Fostolle?
Yon aro palo. Is your faintness coining
on ufc-aln?"
With a snddou effort Mrs. Forsythe
overcame the emotion which hnd made
itself ho dangerously apparent in her
countenance. She Joreed a smile, and
with admirable presonco of mind mado
haste to turn tho apprehensive glances
of everybody from herself by requesting
Lamar to go on.
"Oh, no, Eustace; you aro wrong this
time, at any rate. I never felt bettor in
my life, tio on, I pray you; I am so in
terested!" The physician, almost forced to disbe
lieve his own oyes, eventually complied
With this request.
"After this preliminary," ho con
tinued, "I got into a closed carriage
with my enigmatical friend and was
driven to a certain place, whero I was
ushered into the presence of as pretty a
young lady as you often havo mi oppor
tunity to look at. "
"A pretty young lady?" exclaimed
Maxey. "You aro doing very well, La
mar. Proceed. Don't spare the details."
Everybody laughed, even Mrs. For
sythe, but Ellen, who was watching her
with sharp eyes, saw that a new and
georet terror was OOminB over her as the
doctor went on. At his1' last words her
hand trembled visibly. Nevertheless she
only raised a handkerchief to her lips
and did not speak.
Lamar continued: " 'Well,' said my
friend, tho lawyer, to the young lady,
'hero is Mr. So-and-so, of whom I told
you. He was an old friend of your fa
ther's, lie ought to know you very
well. Von won't object to his examin
ing yon, I suppose?' The young woman
laughed, as I thought, a little nervously
and said: 'Oh, no, not at all. I havo no
objection. He may inspect as much as
he pleases, ' Rather more ImjM and loud
than I should havo liked, but still not
offensive. 'Dark hair, you see,' said tho
lawyer. 'Isn't that right?' 'Oh, yes,'
said I, 'quite right. ' 'And black eyes.
Good again, isn't it?' 'Oh, yes,' said I,
'perfectly good. 1 And so ho went on
making a sort of inventory of her dis
tinctive points, llUGh OS though she had
been ahorse which he was trying to sell

Mr. and Mrs. Maxey wero so intent
on what the physician had to say that
they did not observe Mrs. Forsythe, but
Elleu saw that she looked really ill, and
in the midst of it darted a wild, search
ing, suspicions glance into her own oyes.
"He made her show me her foot, "
said the physician, "and then I saw
that one of the toes was missing. Here
was the scar about which ho had so
mysteriously hinted. 'Well,' said he,
'when we were out of tho place once

you are ill. It is useless for you to deny
it. You look as though you had seen a
ghost. Your fltce is pale. Your hands
tremble. I am afraid yon ore going to

"No," cried out Mrs. Forsythe in a
hnsky voice; "don't stop your story at
such an interesting point on my ac
count. Give your answer to tho lawyer
first. Old or recent, which?"
" 'P.y no possibility IS years.' That
was my answer. "
Mrs. Forsytho rose up with a vehe

His look calmed the rising tiger in
the woman in an instant. For a minute
she gazed Into his face, and then her ex
pression changed from rage to terror.
Before them all she threw her arms
about his neck, crying out:
"Oh, Eustace, Eustace, forgive me.
I don't know what I have been saying!"
and fainted in unmistakable earnest.
