I Her Return
It Was Long
By CLARISSA MACKIE
For three long years Genet Savllle
had nursed a bitter resentment against
her husband. During this time there
was over before her the mental pic
ture of their quarrel and the parting..
ffho recollection of his whlto, con
temptuous face always stung her to
fresh hatred of him. She could hear
his low spoken acrid reply to her up
braiding. The few words that had
sent her fleeing from the room and
later from his house with all tho quick
passion of her southern nature stirred
to Its depths. '
She had sought solitude In nn ob
scure Swiss hamlet. She, who was
without kinsfolk, had cut herself loose
from tho only tie that bound her to
her world. She had not seen a familiar
face nor heard tho sound of a well
known voice In all those thlrty-slx
months. She had not read a news
paper nor heard any tidings of the old
life. Her private fortune, In negoti
able securities, afforded her every ma
terial comfort. She had music and
books, her favorite dog and bitter
Threo years, thlrty-slx months, a
thousand days, and moro, ages ago,
since their parting In the library. Never
had she once longed for tho sound of
Korman's voice, for the sight of his
face, for reconciliation. Sho hated him
for his outburst that night, hated him
for his cool contempt of her "heroics,"
as he called It. Always sho -would re
member him as she had last seen him,
cold and stern and bitter, with no lovo
for her. She fed her soul on these un
Then one lovely morning Genet climb
ed up the verdant upland pastures re
claimed from the rough mountain sides.
Sho paused In tho shadow of a dark
clothed pine tree, Inhaling the pure air
and glorying In the panorama of moun
tain and valley, pine forest and dis
tant glacier, when close beside her
there sprang Into view a tableau a
young dairy farmer and his sweetheart.
Genet had often watched tho peas
ants, her fair face amusedly con
temptuous of their crude lovemaklng.
This man might havo been Norman's
twin brother handsome, clean cut,
gray eyed, brown skinned. The girl
was fresh and sweet and fair. She
was In his arms, and his firmly molded
chin was pressed against the parting of
her golden hair.
Genet watched them, a strange new
feeling leaping to her head, to her heart
a white flame of jealousy that seared
her wounds the bitterness, the anger,
against her husband. Her pulses throb
bed, and the blood flew to her cheeks.
She watched the man's face wistfully,
hungrily, as one who looks on n be
loved forgotten picture and revels in
tho wonderment of rediscovery.
The face of the man was curiously
llko that of Norman the finely shaped
head with its closely brushed chestnut
hair, the straight nose, the resolute
mouth now softened into tenderness.
Tho steadfast gray eyes, deep set and
black lashed, were fixed on tho girl's
face, shyly lifted to his and exquisite
in its virginal purity of expression.
So Norman must havo looked at her
when ho had told Genet of his love.
Genet drew back among the pine
boughs and leaned her face against the
rough bark of the tree. Sho was trem
bling with long controlled emotion, de
llclously thrilled at tho wild prompt
ings of her wayward heart. Impetu
ously she had withdrawn from her hus
band, too hurt to render him Justice.
As passionately would sho return to
him and heap the smothered riches of
her lovo and a lifelong devotion at his
feot to repay for his suffering, his re
gret, his loneliness, for ho would have
suffered keenly, he who worshiped the
ground she trod. All tho world should
know that sho who had left him in an
ger without duo reason acknowledged
her mistake and had returned to him.
After awhile sho descended to tho
village, singing all tho way to tho tiny
chalet where she lived. Tho simple
peasants among whom sho had spont
her exllo looked after her and wonder
ed and smilingly agreed with ono an
other that tho sad faced lady had found
happiness after all.
All the nightmare of Genet's nurtur
ed resentment which had robbed her
of three years of Ufo was banished by
her preparations for immodlato depar
ture. Now that sho saw herself in tho
wrong sho chafed to be humiliated be
fore her husband In expiation of her sin.
Arrived in Now York and settled In
a hotel under an assumed name, sho
called n cab and motored slowly past
tho town house. As sho expected, It
wna closed and shuttered. Sho looked
up at tho familiar windows with dim
eyes and registered a vow to live moro
earnestly, moro worthily, if sho was
permitted to go back.
Tho next day tho train carried her
(own to Fairflolds, whero sho ontered
the ancient surrey which served all
transportation purposes for tho casual
Leaving the sleepy village, tho surrey
rolled lazily along tho sandy, wooded
roada under tall growing whlto oaks
Genet sat with clinched hands and
temo lips watching the sand drift in
jrohlen streams over tho tires, con
scious of tho intoxicating summer
scents, ncutoly responsive to tho pa
thos In the thrush's tender song. The
driver humped drowsily on tho front
scat and slapped at the files on the
broad backed horse. It was a ride to
be remembered for Its suspense.
At tho stono pillared entrance to
Fairflolds Genet dismissed the carriage
and entered tho winding avenue that
led to the house, a half mile dlstnnt, on
the very edge of tho bluffs overhanging
The house must bo open, for there
were recent tracks of broad tires in the
drive. Tho gate lodge was tenanted,
lor curious heads lurked behind the
curtains. Sho wondered if Mrs. Leo
nnd her lame husband still lived at tho
lodge. Sho longed to stop and talk to
them nnd thus bring herself imme
diately into tho swing of tho old life.
Her slender, girlish figure was clad in
pale blue linen coat and gown, with a
veil tho same tint shrouding her whlto
hat. Sho stepped across the turf with
eagor feet, her charmlug face now
rose red with anticipation, now Illy
pale with sudden dread.
The low, rambling house lay quiet in
the hot sunshine. Tho broad verandas,
awnlngod and vineclad, seemed to be
deserted. Her glance wandered to the
launch. Tho party had boarded her
and were lounging In wicker chairs
about tho deck. Norman was at the
wheel. She saw his backward glance
at the house. The whistle tooted im
pudently, nnd they were away, cutting
the water into a thousand twinkling
lights nnd a shower of falling spray.
When they had rouudod the point sho
hurried across tho drive and entered
the veranda. There was a litter of
smoking things on convenient tabo
rets, heaps of sporting papers and gay
ly covered magazines. A siphon, a de-
cantor and a tray of empty glasses
wore on a round table and bespoko re
cent refreshment. It wns very like old
times when she had gone away for a
fow weeks and left Norman to hold
bachelor revels with old cronies. She
smiled at the disorder. It was nil so
natural that the past threo years were
blotted out as if they had never been.
Sho was merely returning homo from
a day's shopping In the hot town.
Thus she deluded herself.
The wide, cool hall was quite desert
ed. Tho polished floor gave back blur
red reflections of tho heavy furniture.
Tho huge flreplaco was crowded with
fresh branches of fragrant bayberry.
Tho library door was closed, but other
open doorways offered cool vistas of
drawing rooms, billiard and dining
rooms. The stairs wound In a broad
spiral to tho second floor.
Genet paused, her eyes lingering on
each well known object There was no
change In the arrangement of furni
ture. Even the hatrack bore its cus
tomary heterogeneous array of coats
and caps, riding crops, golf sticks and
tennis rackets. With a quick nervous
gesture she threw back her veil and
turned to tho library. Before she
sought her own apartments sho would
pcop in here. And now tho creeping
fear at her heart found shape and sug
gestion. If her portrait, tho one Giddy had
painted, still hung over the fireplace in
the library, then all would be well;
Norman would bo forgiving, would ro
leut. Ills mother's plcturo bud graced
that spaco until Norman married, and
then It had given place to Genet's. And
now that sho had forfeited her right
would it be there? If not sho would
steal away from tho house and never
return. Tho nnswor to her questioning
heart lay behind tho closed door.
Suddonly sho turned tho knob and
slipped inside, closing tho door softly
bohlnd her. Then sho loaned panting
with emotion against its mahogany
The long room lay in shadow save
for ono sunny window at tho farther
end. Here n high backed winged chair
She fell to trembling as sho heard tho
flicker of a turning page behind tho
winged chair. In tho silence it seem
ed as If her heart throbs would betray
her presence. In her Joyful Imaginings
of her return to her husband thorc wore
no such fearful terror nnd apprehen
sion as camo upon her now. Her glov
ed hands wrung together in a supremo
effort for control. Suddenly a little
sigh of relief escaped her. Terhaps
no ono was in tho room after all!
Then, as if her sigh had been heard,
a voice came from tho chair, a voice of
quiet inquiry, Norman's voice.
"Who is there?"
Genet's lips were dumb.
"Who Is there?" ho repeated. And
after another silence tho winged chair
creaked with his uprising. Gonet's
glanco flashed to tho flreplaco for cour
age and reassurance, and then a great
Joy came into her dark eyes.
Her portrait was there In Its place
and beneath it a vaso of fresh violets.
Norman camo down tho room, his
eyes half blinded by the sudden change
from tho sunlit window to tho gloom
of tho room. Genet saw that tho
smooth chestnut of his hair was fleck
ed with silver; that his faco wns worn
and his eyes were weary. Then the su
premo moment camo when he saw her
and recognized her. Puzzlement gavo
way to surpriso and something else.
What was It?
lie stopped abruptly, ono hand rest
ing on tho tablo, his deep gray eyes
fixed upon her face, whlto as snow
against tho dark paneling.
"I am sorry. I havo como home. I
lovo you, Norman," sho whispered.
Then sho hung her head, not daring to
look Into his beloved faco.
"Afraid? Afraid of mo? Why, I
have been waiting for you all these
Safe In her husband's arms onco

TCARM JOURNAL ("cream, not skim milk") is the great little
- paper published for 36 years in Philadelphia by Wilmer
Atkinson. It is taken and read by more families than any other
farm paper in the WORLD. Its four million readers (known as
" Our Folks ") are the most intelligent and prosperous country
people that grow, and they always say the Farm Journal helped
to make them so. Their potatoes are larger, their milk tests higher, their hogs
weigh more, their fruit brings higher prices, because they read the Farm Journal.
Do you know Peter Tumbledown, the old fellow who won't take the Farm Journal ? By showing
how NOT to run a farm, Peter makes many prosperous. Nobody cm go on reading the Farm Journal
and being a Tumbledown too. Many have tried, but all have to quit one or the other.
The Farm Journal is bright, brief, " boiled down," practical, full of gumption, cheer and sunshine.
It is strong on housekeeping and home-making, a favorite with busy women, full of life and fun for boys and
girls. It sparkles with wit, and a happy, sunny spirit. Practical as a plow, readable as a novel. Clean and
pure, not a line of fraudulent or nasty advertising. All its advertisers are guaranteed trustworthy.
The Farm Journal gives more for the money and puts it in fewer words than any other farm paper.
32 to 80 pages monthly, illustrated. FIVE years (60 issues) for Si. 00 only. Less than 2 cents a month.
No one-year, two-year or three-year subscriptions taken at any price.
What Our Folks Say About F. J.
"I have had more help, encouragement and enjoy
ment out of it i:i one year than I did out of my other papers in ten
years," says,C. M. Persons.
" It is a queer little paper. I have sometimes read
It through ami thought I was ilonevilh it, then pick it up again
and find sonietliiuj; new to interest me," sajs Alfred Krogli.
"Farm Journal is like a bit of sunshine in our home.
It is making a tetter class of people out of farmers. It was first
sent inc a? n Chiistmas present, nnd I think it the choicest present
I ever levelled," says 1'. R. LcValley.
"We have read your dear little paper for nearly 40
years. Now we don't live on the farm any more, et I still have a
hankering for the old paper. I feel that I belong to the family, and
every page is as dearand familiar as the faces of old friends,' says
Mrs. li. W. Edwards.
"I fear I neslect my business to read it. I wish it
could belli the hands of every fanner in Virginia," saysW.S. Cllne.
"I live in a town where the vnrd is only 15x 18 feet,
but I could not do without the Farm Journal," says Miss Sara
"I get lots of books and papers, and put lhem aside
for future reading. The only paper I seem to have in my hands
all the time is Farm Journal. 1 can't finish reading it. Can t you
make it less interesting, so I can have a chance at my other
papers ? " writes John Swail.
"If I am lonesome, down-hearted, or tired, I go to
Farm Journal for comfort, next to the Uible," says Mabel Dcwitt.
"Farm Journal has a cheerful vein running through
It that makes it a splendid cure for the "blues." When coming
home tired In mind nnd )dv, 1 fit down and nad It. ar.t It seems
to give ine new inspiration fur life," writes C h. Halderman.
"We have a brother-in-law who loves a joke. We
live In Greater New York, anil consider ourselves quite citified, so
when he sent us the Farm Journal as a New Year''.- gift we nearly
died laughing. 'How to raise hops' we who only use bacon in
gliss Jars I 'How to keep cows clean' when we uc c mdensed
milk even for rice pudding! 'How to plant onions' when we
never plant amthlng more fragiant than lilies of the valley. I
accepted the gilt with thanks, lor we are loo well-bred to look a
gift horse in the mouth. Soon my eye v as caught by a beaulifut
poem. I began to lead it, then when I wanted the Farm Journal
1 found my husband deeply interested in an article. Then my
oldest son began to ask, 'Has the Farm Journal come yet?" He is
a jeweler, ana hasn't much time for literature; but we find so much
Interest and uplift in tills fine paper that wo appreciate our New
Year's gift more and more," writes Ella II. Burkman.
"I received 'Corn Secrets and 'Poultry Secrets,'
and consider them wortli their weight In gold," says v. G. Newall.
"What your Egsr Hook tells would take a beginner
years to learn," says Koy Chancy.
"Duck Dollars is the best book I ever had on duck
raising," says F. M. Warnock.
"If your other booklets contain ns much valuable
Information as the Egg-Book, I would consider them cheap at
double the price," says F. W. Mansfield,
"I think your Egg-Book is a wonder," says
C. T. Shirey.
"The Farm Journal beats them all. Everv issue has
reminders and ideas worth a ) tar's subscription," wii.es
T. H. i'otter.
"One year apo I took another agricultural paper,
and it took a whole column to tell what Farm Journal tells in
one paragraph," says N, M. Gladwin.
"It ought to be in every home where there is a chick,
a child, a cow, a cherry, of a cucumber," says I. U. Bordus.
