THE SCR ANTON I ittBUNE-MOND AY MORNING, SEPTEMBER 24, 1894.
' COPTHlGHf ,'
. CHAPTER VL,
Lali's recovery was not rapid. A
chango had come npou hor. With that
BtTaiigo rido had gono tho last flicker of
the desiro for savage life in her. She
knew now the position she held toward
her hnbbaud; that he had never loved
her; that she was only an instrument
tor unworthy retaliation. So soon as
she could speak after her accident she
told them that they most uqt write to
him and tell him of it. Sho also made
them promise that they would give him
rtn nra-i tt hnr ftt all. Rave thilt wild was
well. They could not refuse to promise.
They felt she had the right to demand
much more than that They had begun
to care for her for herself, and when
the mouths went by and one day there
was a hnsh about her room and anxiety
and then reliof in the faces of all, they
camo to care for her still more for the
sake of her child.
As the weeks passed tho fair haired
child grew more and inure like his fa
ther, but if Lali thonghtof her husband
they never knew by anytliiug she said,
for she would not speak of him. She
also madethempromisothat they would
not write to him of tho child's birth.
Richard, with his sense of justico and
knowing how ninch tho woman ' had
been wronged, said that in all this alio
had done quite right; that Frank, if he
had done his duty after marrying her,
should have come with her. And bo
oause they all felt that Richard had
been her best friend as well as their own
they called the child after him. This
also was Lali'B wish. Coincident with
her'a motherhood thero came to Lali a
new purpose. Sho had. not lived with
the Armours without absorbing some of
their fine social sense and dignity. This,
added to tho native instinct of pride in
her, gave her a new ambition. As hour by
hour tho child grow dear to her, so hour
by hour her husband grow away from,
her. . She schooled herself against him,
At times she thought s1h hated him.
She felt sho could never forgive him, but
sho would prove to him that it was sho
who had made the mistake of her life in
mirrying him; that sho had been
wronged, not he, and that his sin
would f aco him with reproach and pun
ishment one day. Richard's prophecy
was likily to como trua Sho would do
feat very perfectly indeed Frank's in
tentions. After the child was born, so
soon as sho was ablo, sho renewed her
studies with Richard and Mrs. Armour.
She read every morning for hours; sho
rode; sho.. practiced all those graceful
arts of tho toilet belonging to the sorid
convention; she showed an unexpected
faoulty for singing and practiced it
.faithfully, and she begged Mrs. Ar
mour and Marion to correct her at every
point where correction seemed neces
sary. When the chid was two years old,
they all went to London, something
against Lali's personal feelings, but
quite in accord with what sho felt her
Richard was left behind at Qreyhopo.
For the first time in 18 months he was
alono with his old quiet duties and rec
reations. During that time he had not
neglected bis pensioners his poor, sick,
halt and blind but a deeper, larger in
terest had come into his life in tho per
son of Lali.' During all that time sho
had seldom been out of his sight, never
out of his influence and tutelage. Bis
days had been full, his every hour had
been given a keen responsible interest
As if by tacit consent, every incident or
development of Lali's life was influ
enced by his judgment and decision. He
had been more to her than 'General Ar
mour, Mrs. Armour or Marion. Schooled
as he was in all the ways of the world,
he had at the same time a mind as sen
sitive as a woman's, an indescribable
gentleness, a persnasivo temperament.
Since, years boforo, he had withdrawn
from the social world and become a re
cluse many of his finer qualities had
gone into an indulgent seclusion. Ho
had once loved the world and the gay
life of London, but soino untoward
event, coupled with a radical love of
retirement, had sent him into years of
isolation at Greyhope.
. His tutelar relations with Lali had
reopened many an old spring of sensa
tion and experience. "Her shy depend
ency, her innocent inquisitiveness, had
-searched out his remotest sympathies.
In teaching her he had himself been re
taught, Before sho. came he had boen
satisfied with the quiet usefulness nnd
studioua .ease of his life, but in her
presence somothing of his old youthful
nees came back, some reflection of the
ardent hopes of his young manhood. He
did not notice the change in himself.
Ho only know that his life was very
full. He read later at nights, he roso
earlier in the morning, but unconscious
ly to himself he was' undergoing a
change. The more a man's sympathies
and emotions are active the . less is he
the philosopher. It is only when one
has withdrawn from the more personal
influence of the emotions that one's phi
losophy may be trusted. , !
One may be interested in mankind
and still be philosophical may be, as
it were, the priest and confessor-to all
comers. But let one be touched in some
Vital corner p one's nature, and the
high faultless impartiality is gone. In
proportion as Richard's interest in Lali
had grown, the Universal quality of his
sympathy had declined. Man is only
man. Not that his benefactions as lord
bountiful id the parish had grown per
functory, but the calm detail of his in
terest was not so definite. He Was the
ame, yet not the same.
He was not aware of any difforenoe
in himself. Ho did not know that he
looked younger by 10 years. Such is the
effect of mere personal sympathy upon
a man's look and bearing. Whon, there
fore, one bright May morning the fam
ily at Qreyhope, himself excluded, was
ready to start for London, he had no
thought but that he would drop back
into his old Bitot life as it was before
Lali came and his brother's child was
bora He was not conscious that he was
very restless that morning. lie scarcely,

was aware fiiat ho had got up two
hours earlier than usual. ' At the break
fast table he was cheerful and alert
After breakfast he amused himself in
playing with the child till the carriage
was brought round. It was such a morn
ing as does not como a dozen times a
year in England.' Tho sweet moist air
blow from the meadows and up through
the limo trees with a warm insinuating
gladness. The lawn sloped delightfully
away to tho flowered embrasures of the
park, and a fragrant . abundaneo of
flowers met the eye and cheered tho
souses. ' While Riohard loitered on the
steps with the child and its nurso, more
excited than ho knew, Lali came out
and stood besido him. At tho moment
Richard was looking into tho distance,
lie did not hear her when she came.
She stood near him for a moment and
did not speak. Her eyes followed the
direction of his look and idled tenderly
with tho prospect before her. She did
not even notice tho child. Tho same
thought was in tho mind of both with
a difference. Riohard was wondering
how any ouo could choose to chango the
sweet. dignity of that rural lifo for the
flaring, hurried delights of London and
tho season. Ho had thought this a thou
sand .times, and yet, though ho would
havo been littles willing to acknowledge
it, his conviction was not so impregna
ble as it had been.
Mrs. Francis Armour was stepping
from tho known to the unknown. Sho
was leaving tho precincts of a life in
which, socially, sho had been born again.
Its sweetness and benign quietness had
all worked upon her nature and origin to
chango her. In that it was an outdoor
life, full of freshness and open air vig
or, it was not antagonistic to her past.
Upon this sympathetic basis had been
imposed tho conditions of a flno social
decorum. The conditions must still ex
ist But how would it be when she was
withdrawn from this peaceful activity
of nathro and set down among "those
garish lights" in Cavendish square and
Piccadilly? She hardly know to what
sho was going as yet. There had been a
few social functions at Greyhope since
sho had como, but that could give her,
after all, but littla idea of tho swing
and pressuro of London life.
At this moment she was lingering
over tho scene before her. Sho was
wondering with the naive wonaer 01 an
awokqned mind. Sho had intended
many timos of lato saying to Richard
all tho native gratitndo she felt, yet
somehow sho had iievcr been ablo to say
it. The moment of parting had come.
"What are you thinking of, Rich
ard?" she said now.
He started and turned toward her.
"I hardly know, " he answered. "My
thoughts were drifting. "
"Richard," sho said abruptly, "I
want to thank you. "
"Thank mo for what, Lali?" he ques
tioned. "To thank you,-Richard, for every
thing sinco I came, over threo years
He broke out into a soft little laugh
then, with his old good natured man
ner, caught her hand as he did the first
night she camo to Greyhope, patted it
in a fatherly fashion and said: "It is
the wrong way about, Lali. I ought to
be thanking, you; not you me. Why,
look, what a stupid old fogy I was then,
toddling about the place with too much
time on my hands, reading a lot and
forgetting everything, and hero you
came in, gave mo Something to do, made
tho littlo I know of any use and ran a
pretty gold wire down tho rusty fiddlo
of lifa If there are any speeches of
gratitude to be made, they aro mine
they ore mino. "
"Richard," sho'said very quietly and
gravely, "I owe you nioro than lean
ever say in English. You have taught
mo to speak in your tongue enough for
all the usual things of life, but one can
only speak from the depths of one's
heart in one's native tongue. And see,"
sho added, with a painful little smile,
"how strango it would sound if I were
to toll you all I thought in thelanguago
of my people of,, my peoplo whom I
shall never soe again. Richard, can yon
understand what it must bo to have a
father whom one Js'never likely to see
again whom if one did see again some
thing painful would happen? We grow
awny from pooplp :against our will; we
feel tho same toward them, but they
cannot feel 'tliQ.samo toward us, for
their world is in' another hemisphcra
Wo want to love them, and we love,
remember and aro glad to moot thorn
again, but they foel that we aro unfa
miliar, and because we have grown dif
ferent outwardly they sown to miss
somo chord that used to ring. Richard,
I I" She paused. ;
"Yes, Lali," he assented, "yes, I un
derstand you so far, but spoak out "
"I amnothappy," shesaid. "Inovcr
shall bo happy. I have my child, and
that is all I have. I cannot go back to
the lifo in which I was born. I must go
on as I am, a stranger among a strange
peoplo, pitied, sufferod, cared for a lit
tle and that is all "
Tho nurso had drawn away a little
distance with tho child. The rost of the
family wore making their preparations
insido the houso.. There was no one
near to watch the singular littlo drama.
"You should not say that," ho add
ed. "We all foel you to be one of us. "
"But all your world does not fool me
to bo one of them, " she rejoined. -'
"We shall seo about that when you
go up to town. ,You aro a bit morbid,
Lali. I don't wonder at your feeling a
little shy,, but thon you will simply car
ry things before you. : Now you tako my
word for it, for I know London pretty
Sho hold out her nngloved hards.
"Do they compare with tho whlto hands
of (Tno ladies you know?" she said.
"They aro about tho finost hands I
havo ever seen," he replied. "Yqu
can't see yourself, sistor cf mina ". i
"I do not care very much to see my
self," she said. "If I had not a maid,
I expect I should look vwy shiftless, for
J. don't care to look in a mirror. My
only mirror wsed to bo a stream of water
in summer, " sho added, "and a corner
of a looking glass got from the Hudson's
Bay fort In the winter. "
"Well, you are missing a lot of en
joyment," ho said, "if yon do not use
your mirror much. The rest of us can
appreciate what you would see thera "
She reached out and touched his arm.
"Do you like to look at me?" sho ques.
tioned, with a strange simple candor.
.For the first time in many a year Rich
ard Armour blushed liko a girl fresh
from school. The question had como so
suddenly, it had gone so quickly into a
sensitive corner of his nature, that he
lost command of himself for tho instant,
yet had littlo idea why the command was
lost Ho touched the fingers on his arm
"Like to look at you? Like to look
at you? Why, of course, we all like to
look at you. You are very fine and
handsome and interesting. "
"Richard' she said, drawing her
hands away, "is that why you like to
look at me?"
He had recovered himself. He laugh
ed in his old hearty way and- said;
"Yos, yes. .Why, of course. Como, let
us go and see the boy," ho added,' tak
ing her arm and hurrying her down the
steps. "Come and lot us see Richard
Josoph, the pride of all the Armours. "
She moved beside him in a kind of
dream. Sho had learned much since she
camo to Greyhope, but yet she could
not at that moment have told exactly
why she asked Riohard the question
that had confused him, nor did she
know qnito what lay behind tho ques
tion. But every problem which has life
works itself out to its appointed end if
fumbling human fingers do not meddle
with it. Half the miseries of this world
are caused by forcing issues, in every
problem of the affections, the emotions
and the soul There is a law working
with which there should be no tamper
ing, lest in foolish interruption come
only confusion and disaster. Against
every such question there should be
written the one word, wait.
Richard Armour stooped over the
child. "A beauty," he said, "a perfect
little gentleman. Like Richard Joseph
Armour there is nono," he added.
"Whom do you think he looks like,
Richard?" she asked. This was a ques
tion she had never asked before since
the child was born. Whom the child
looked like evory one knew, but within
the past year and a half Francis Ar
mour's name had seldom been mention
ed and never in connection with the
child. The child's mother asked the
question with a strange quietness. Rich
ard answered it without hesitation.
"Tho child looks liko Frank," ho
said. "As like him as can be."
"I am glad," she said, "for all your
"You are very deep this morning,
Lali," Richard said, with a kind of
helplessness. "Frank will bo pretty
proud of the youngster whon he comes
back. But he won't be prouder of him
than I am."
"I know that, "Bhe said. "Won't yon
be lonely without the boy and me,
Again the question went homa
"Lonely? I should think I would," ho
said. "I should think I would. But
then, you see, school is over, and tho
master stays behind and makes up the
marks. Yon will find London a jollier
master than I am, Lali. There'll be lots
of shows, and plenty to do, and smart
frocks, and no end of feeds and frolics,
and that is more amusing than studying
three hours a day with a dry old stick
like Dick Armour. I tell you what,
when Frank comes"
She interrupted him. "Do not speak
of that, " she said. Thon, with a sudden
burst of feoling, though her words
were scarcely audible: "I owo you overy
thng, Richard everything that is good.
I owe him nothing, Richard nothing
but what is bitter. "
"Hush, hnsh," ho said. "You must
not speak that way. Lali, I want to say
At that moment - General Armour,
Mrs. Armour and Marion appeared on
the doorstep, and the carriage came
Wheeling up tho driva What Richard
intended to say was left unsaid. The
chances wero it never would be said.
"Well, well," said General Armour,
calling down at them, "escort his im
perial highness to the chariot which
awaits him, and then, ho! for London
town. Come along, my daughter," he
said to Lali. "Come np here and take
the last whiff of Greyhope that you
will havo for six mouths. Dear, dear,
what lunatics we all are, to be sure I
Why, we're as happy as little birds in
their nests but in the decent country,
and yet we scamper off to a smoky old
city by tho Thames to rush along with
the world, instead of sitting high and
far away from it and watching it go by.
God bless my soul, I'm old enough to
know bettor. Well, lot me holp you in,
my dear, " he added to his wife, "and
in yon go, Marion, and in you go, your
imperial highness' 'ho passed the child
awkwardly in to Marion "and in you
go, my daughter," ho added as he hand
ed Lali in, pressing her hand with a
brusque f atherliness as he did so. He
then got in after them.
Richard came to the side of tho car
riage and bade them all goodbyoneby
ona Lai gave him her hand, but did
not speak a word. He called a cheerful
adiou, the horses wero whipped up; and
in a moment Richard was left alono on
the steps of the housa He stood for a
time looking, then he turned to go into
the houso, but changed his mind, sat
down, lit 'a' cigar and did not move
from his seat until he was summoned
to his lonely luncheon. .
Nobody thought much of leaving
Richard behind at Greyhope. It seemed

the natural thing to do. But still he
had not been left -alone entirely alone
for three years or more. ..
The days and weeks went on. If Rich
ard had been accounted ecoentrio before,
there was far greater causo for tho term
now. Life dragged. Too much had been
taken out of his life all at onoe, for in
the first place tho family "had been
drawn together more during the trouble
which Lali's advent had brought Then
the child and its mother, his pupil, were
gone also. He wandered about in a kind
of vague unrest The hardest thing in
this world to get used to is the absence
of a familiar footstep and the cheerful
greeting of a familiar eya And the
man with no chick or child feels even
the absence of his dog from the hearth
rug when he returns from a journey or
his day's work.1 It gives him a sense of
strangeness and loss. But when it is
the voice of a woman and the hand of a
child that is missed you can back no
speculation upon that man's mood or
mind or conduct There is no influence
like the influence of habit, and that is
how, when tho minds of people are at
one, physical distance and differences,
no matter how great are invisible or
at least not obvious.
Richard Armour was a sensible man,
bnt when ono morning he suddenly
packed a portmanteau and went up to
town to Cavendish square the act might
bo considered from two sides of the
equation. If he camo back to enter
again into the social lifo which for so
many years he had abjured, it was not
very sensible, because tho world never
welcomes its deserters. It might if men
and womon grew younger instead of
older. If ho came to soe his family, or
because he hungered for his godchild,
or because but we are hurrying the
situation. It wero wiser not to state
the problem yet The afternoon that ho
arrived at Cavendish square all his
family were out except his brother's
wifa Lali was in the drawing room
receiving a visitor who had asked for
Mrs. Armour and Mrs. Francis Armour.
The visitor was recdivod by Mrs. Fran
cis Armour. Tho visitor knew that Mrs.
Armour was not at homa Sho had by
chance seen her and Marion in Bond
street and was not seen by them. She
straightway got into her carriago and
drove np to Cavendish square, hoping
to find Mrs. Francis Armour at home.
There had been houso parties at Grey
hope since Lali had come thero to livo,
but this viator, though onco an inti
mate friend of tho family, had nover
been a guest.
Tho visitor was Lady Haldwell, once
Miss Julia Sherwood, who had made
possible what was called Francis Ar
mour's tragedy. Sinoo Lali hod come to
town Lady Haldwell had seen her, but
had never met her. She was not at
heart wicked, but there are few women
who can resist an opportunity of anato
mizing and rockoning up the merits
and demerits of a woman who has mar
ried an old lover. When that woman is
in tho position of Mrs. Francis Armour
the situation has an unusual piquancy
and interest. Honce Lady Haldwell's
