Tho' winter continued cold and
blustering. Hclon skotchod no moro
out of doors. But alio did tho Interior
of tho Dutch house and both sketches
were sold on Uie opening day of the
eprlng exhibition. Whenever Derrlng
chided her for careless disregard of
her health, sho would meekly call his
attention to this very pleasant and
tangible result of the North Shore ex
pedition. Dorring gradually became conscious
of another result leBs palpable, but
no z:p renl. Slnco their first acquain
tance he had known that her presence
had a marked effect on him soothing
and quieting him if ho were tired, and
autrkening his fancy and Imagination
If he were in good spirits. Ho was
always, conscious of her presenco in a
room, oven beforo his eyes had testi
fied It. Soon ho became awaro that
a now and more subtle communication
had been established between them.
IIo continued to feel an added sense
of well-being in her presonco; but
he discovered that this power of her
personality had escaped tho bonds of
space, and that wherever Bhe might
be, his spirit wns conscious of hqr.
The first sign of this was a vague
restlessness and foreboding which
came to him, now and then, without
apparent cause.
Since she was always in his mind, it
did not occur to him as strange that
hlB thoughts of her should tako a
gloomy turn when this humor was on
him. Nor did he guess tho secret of
the strange mood till a day when the
feeling became too strong to bo re
sisted, and he sought her in the stu
dio. He found her Bitting on the top
of a tall step-ladder, a comical pic
ture of despair.
Her faco brightened as he appeared
in the doorway. "Oh, I am so glad I
Do you suppose you can get me
"Of course, Come on." He held
out his hands.
"I can't I have sprained my foot.
It was silly to try to hang a heavy
picture on thiB rickety old thing. I
never dreamed I should slip, though.
It hurts so that I can't bear my
weight oh I" She lifted it carefully.
And tho ladder shakes so I don't dare
hop down. I am sure I hope you have
sense enough to know what to do I
He lifted her carefully from her
insecure seat and placed her on the
very hard divan that ran the length of
the room.
"You have to spend most of your
time rescuing me, don't you?" Bhe
aaid, laughing. "How did you happen
to come over so early? I had made
up my mind to sit there till six o'clock.
Tom has to come for some pictures
How had he happened to come?
In a flash he saw it all and told her.
She laughed a little at the explana
tion, But he recalled to her other
times when he had unconsciously been
warned of her danger or discomfort
They discussed the situation with ana
lytic appreciation. At least, if not
true, it was interesting.
A few experiments convinced them
that it was true as well as interesting.
It wnB evidently an uncertain com
munication, however. Soveral times
when ho yielded to the feeling of dis
quiet and sought her out he found her
working, sercnoly unconscious of dan
ger nnd ready to laugh at his fears.
Moreover, it was a one-Bided commu
nication. Helen, as he reproachfully
polntod out to her, was never con
scious of danger to him, while ho had
a headache if Bhe so much as scratch
ed her little finger.
Dut, although Derrlng Jested, he re
joiced in this new power. It deepened
their relation. Ho might bo dlsquletod
without cause; but at least no harm
would come to her without his know
ing It
But as the spring came on a new
dread assailed him, Soon It would be
summor. Sho would go home for the
vacation. Would this power extend
over tho thousand miles? And would
he have, as now, the preslence of dan
ger without the power to go to her?
He grew to dread the summer.
But it was destined that he should
be the first to go away. Early In
April n letter camo from his mother.
Seth Kinney was very III and asked
continually for him.
As he packed his traveling-bag and
propared to go, he was conscious of
mixed motives. He was fond of Seth.
Ho would have gone to htm in any
case But, with a little sense of
As He Packed HIa Traveling-Bag and
Prepared to Go, He Was Conscious
of Mixed Motives.
&hame, he found himself thinking that
tho trip would give him a chance to
test the communication. IIo would
be gone only a few days. Nothing
could happen. But at least he should
know what ho had to expect during
the long weeks of vacation. So anx
ious was ho to make tho experiment
that ho almost forgot the dread of
"Ho as happy as you can for my
sake," he said laughingly as they
parted. "Don't run any more risks
than you can help."
The' morning train was full of the
hum of lifo. People seemed to be
letting oil superabundant vitality. Be
hind Derrlng a child was humming
contentedly to herself. Her mother
was talking in a loud voice to a man
across the aisle. "You have to look
after the seed, pralso the Lord! If
we don't gather a sheaf in this life,
it's no matter." Farther to the front
of the car two business men were
As tho day wore on, each person In
the car assumed for Derrlng a distinct
Individuality. The sense of Isolation
deepened. He entered Into conversa
tion with no one, but sat idly listen
ing to the flow of talk.
At times he watched the changing
landscape. Along the margin of each
little stream the willows grew yellow
in the sunshine. Across the plain a
mass of low crimson marked where
tho cap crept UD at the touch of
spring, As they approached the woods,
the crimson faded to a soft, feathery
gray. Then they were among the
trees themselves, and the sunshine,
slanting across the great trunks, hung,
caught In tangled underbrush, or rest-,
ed lightly on some tuft of moss or
dark, shining pool.
Derrlng was impressed with the in
congruity of it all hlB solitude in the
midst of the life that pressed so close
about him, the hum of busy talk and
the shriek of the engine deep in the
woods where one never goes except
alone or with Borne congenial soul.
With one glance he caught the fresh
ness of tho spring, and with the next,
the commonplace faco and striped
trousers of the passenger across the
Hla thoughts went to Helen and
their love, to the happiness of the
past year and the days that were be
fore them. The, car and Its occupants

for him, ho no longer dreaded its
power. IIo saw deep Into its nature.
Ho who loves much will suffer much.
Throughout tho Journey tho thought
stayed with him; and when, onco or

could not mar tho closeness of lovo.
The longing for hor safety that stolo
