The ftcwanl withdrew, and the doc

paragraph of a letter he had been

It was not precisely an urgent lct

The doctor took his hand and laid
a finger on his pulse. The hand was
hot and dry, the pulse was galloping
furiously and a brief examination
was sufficient to diagnose his ail
ment. "A touch of pneumonia," Bald

"I wanted to get home," the other
answered, wearily. "I've been away
a long time."
"We must see what we can arrange
about nursing," the doctor concluded.
"I'll give you some medicine; you've
pot a good constitution, and, with
care, you'll pull round all right."
"Oh, yes. He mustn't be
left, Harrow." The doctor turned to
the steward. "Somebody will have
to sit tip with him to-night. I'll see
him iigain before I turn in; and I'll
get the captain to let you have ns
bistanee." After fulfilling which latter duty he
retired to his cabin and resumed the
laborious composition of his letter.
A glimpse of what he was writing
would have amazed any man who
knew him. l'or to everybody who
knew him, with one possible excep
tion, 1'r. Yahh'ti was a matter-of-fact,
rather unsympathetic, wholly
unroinantie man, of nearer ."0 than
10; whereas the letter that was slow
ly developing under his pen might
almost have been written by a senti
mental youngster in the rapturous
agonies of Iirst love. Nobody would
have credited i!,e doctor with pos
sessing the smallest streak of senti
ment anywhere in his robust, sub
stantial person. He never suspected
it himself even until three years ago.
Three years ago he met in London
the girl he told himself he had been
looking for till his life. She was
nearly 20 years his junior, but what
did that matter? Her people had
been rich and proud, and now,
through recent financial disasters,
hey were poor and pxonder, btrt
ivhat did all that matter either? He
oved her, and cared for nothing else
f bhe could only love him.

The dim, stuffy little cabin was si-'
lent for awhile, except for the la
bored respiration of the sick man,
who presently, becoming aware of

"Don't think of it "
"I wish I couldn't:" He laughed,
but there was a feverish brightness
in his eyes, and his voice quavered
with suppressed excitement. "I
haven't had time to think of it till
He went on talking, and Yalden lis
tened absently, with strange doubts
troubling his mind; and, so listening,
ho half-unconseiously fashioned from
the other's words visions of vast
snow wastes stretching into the night
or the day, now silent and lonely as
death, now blurred, and whirling and
howling with the fury of a storm,
and, always deep in the desolation of
it, a desperate little band of adven
turers struggled forlornly, chasing a
dream, starving, and falling, and dy
ing, some of them, in the track of it;
and here, at last, with the unimag
inable terrors of that bleak wilder
ness left behind him, one of the few
survivors had emerged triumphant,
with his dream realized.
Triumphant, so far.
The doctor eyed him gloomily from
under a frown.
"And I'm not dead yet, though I'm
supposed to be!" the other chuckled
grimly. "One everlasting, terrible
winter we were snowed np miles
away from anywhere, and we were
put down as done for. The wonder
is that we were nor. Only two of
us managed to worry through, and
we wandered Heaven only knows
where, and we lived well, wo didn't
live. Hut we worried through and
I'm going home." His eyes closed
and he rambled on dreamily: "Nine
years! but she'll be waiting. I told
her that it wouldn't be more than
two and she said, 'It's till you come,
Ned; and if you never come I shall
wait, till I meet you, at the end.'"
He lay quiet a minute, and then
opening his eyes and finding the doe
tor regarding him intently, he con
tinued: "We've never written to each other.
We promised her people we wouldn't.
She was to be free to change if she
would: they said it was best. I had
no money and no prospects, but if I
went back n rich man and she had
not changed. I knew she
never would. Whether I lived or
died, she said she would never chnnge
and she won't." .
"Did you say your name was Edwin
The doctor was startled by the
alien sound of his own voice.
The sick man nodded, and, pointing
across the cabin:
"Uer portrait's in my bag, doctor,"
he said. "Do you mind getting it for
me? My will's in there, too. I made
it as soon as I struck my first luck, in
case. Oh, what I wanted to
ask you, doctor, was if I don't pull
round, will you bar my bag and
rerythlng sent her? TouH find her
id dress "
"Yes, yes. But not now," Yalden
nUrrupted harshly. "You've talked
w much already. Come
tlong, Barrow," he hailed the advent
)f the steward with ineffable relief.
'Call me if he is worse in the night."
He was dazed and stupefied by the
tnowledge that had come upon him
to unexpectedly, and yearned to get
tway and be alone where he might
think of it.
Yet he could not think of it even
when he was alone, for every thought
is it touched his brain flamed into
madness and became an incoherent
Kicker that dazzled and baffled him.
One thought only burned to a clear
ind fiercely steady blaze a sinister,
hellish thought that he dared not
face and could not distinguish.
"My God!" he muttered, pacing his
cramped room like a caged animal.
"It's more than I can bear!"
He lost all count of time, as n man
does when he sleeps, but when the
steward summoned him hurriedly an
hour after midnight he had evident
ly not been in bed; a light was burn
ing in his cabin, he was still dressed,
and his frioe was wan and his eyes
heavy as if he were in pain.
"Mr. Ashton's worse, sir. Kdwards
Is with him, mid called me to fetch
you. He can't sleep. Keeps sitting
up, l'dwnrds says, staring as if he
could see people, tin' talking very
sing'Iar. Delirious, 1 expect, sir."
"We must try a sleeping draught,"
said Yalden dully. "I'll be there di
rectly." Harrow being gone, he busied him
self in the medicine cupboard, and
hastened after him, carrying some
thing in a glass.
Drawing near to No. 10 he cotihl
hear the sick man babbling monoton
ously, and the very sound of his voice
stung him and quickened that lire of
hell to a fiercer llttnie within him;
till sin' v he caught a word of
what tin' man was saying merely a
name, but the utterance of it checked
him instantly, as if a hand had
plucked at his sleeve.
He stood trembling, and in that
same instant saw, shaping white in
the darkness before him, a sweet, sad
face, grown pale with weary years
of longing the pure, wistful eyes
looked into his, and their calmness
calmed him, and their sadness made
He was sane again; he could not
go on, but yielded to gentler impulses
as readily as if the utterance of her
name had conjured her there in very
reality to turn him back, and he had
regained his better self in her pres
ence. With a something breoking like a
sob in his throat, he swiftly retraced
his steps, pausing in the unlighted
saloon to open one of the portholes
and fling the glass he carried far out
into the dark.

the day watching and tending the
man she loved nnd had loved so long.
He shrank from trusting himself
alone with his own thoughts again
yet; and, because she loved him and
her happiness was bound up in his
life, all that unhappy night he fought
with death for the man he hated.
Going on deck in the morning ho
leaned over the side to tear up the
letter he had written and scatter its
fragments into the sea.
It was the burial of a great hope
that had died in the night.
As he walked away, the captain,
coining from breakfast, met him and
lingered to make inquiries.
"'.Morning, doctor; how's the pa
tient'.' You're not going to make a
funeral of it, I hope?"
"Not quite," Yalden laughed care
lessly. "He has taken a turn for tbo
better." l'.lack and White.

Spain, the first thing the people did
was, to destroy the Moorish bath

religious prejudice against the Moors.
It was a bad thing for Spain, however,
from a physical standpoint, as that
country has been noted ever since
for its wunt of personal cleanliness
and the entire absence of the facili

At King Edward's coronation the
duchess of liuccleuch lost a bracelet
in a singular manner. It had become
n'tached to a lady's dress, was folded
away with the garment and not seen
until the unconscious finder had been
away for a holiday and had the robe
out again. That, however, is com

ring which was an heirloom in his
family was stolen from his keeping.

years. Then it turned up inside a

indicted by tho grand Jury of the Su
pnrier Court for embezzlement of $11,
000 of the funds from George W. Van
derbllt. lloth men have left the state
and their whereabouts are unknown.
The finding of the grand jury is the
result of Investigations which have
been conducted for tho last two
months. When the rumors of pecu

tarted a general denial was made at
the offices. The sudden return of Mr.
Vanderhllt from Europo and the em

resulted in open charges being made
against tho men, who were dismissed
from Mr. Vandorbllt's employ for "vio
