"I suppose Helen cares nothing for, announced the maid, and

I have generally confided to Good Luck,

I glanced out upon the lake with some
( notion, perhaps, of seeing her fairy
sail drifting toward me. Hut there, to
my vexation, hung the Stiletto, scarce
ly moving in the Indolent air of noon.
There was, I felt again, something sin

stole lazily before the wind. Did Mist

"That was nice of you, very nice o! ment, went to the farther end of the
you, Rosalind. I hope you will keep
right on the way you've begun. Now
I must ask you not to leave here, and
not allow, your father to leave unless
I know it."
"But you have your hands full with
out us. Your first obligation Is to
Aunt Pat and Helen. My father and
I have merely stumbled in where wo
were not invited. You and I had bet
ter say good-by now."
"I am not anxious to say good-by,"
I answered, lamely, and she laughed
"We met under the star-r-rt, Mr.
Donovan" (this was Impudent; my
own r's trill, they say), "at the stone
seat and . by the boathouse, and we
talked Shakespeare and had a beauti
ful time all because you thought I
was Helen. In your anxiety to be with
her you couldn't see that I haven't
quite her noble height I'm an Inch
shorter. I gave you every chance there
at the boathouse, to see your mistake;
hut you wouldn't have It so. And you
let me leave you there while I went
hack alone across the lake to Red
Gate, right by Battle Orchard, which
Is haunted by Indian ghosts. You are
a most gallant gentleman!"
"When you are quite done, Rosalind!"
I aon t Know when I shall have a
chance again, Mr. Donovan," she went
on, provoklngly. "I learned a good
deal from you In those Interviews, but
T did have to do a lot of guessing,
That was a real Inspiration of mine, to
Insist on playing that Helen by night
and LLclaa by dv wera tilJIerent per
sonalities, and that you must not
speak to the one of the other. That
saved complications, because you did
keep to the compact, didn't you?"
I assented, a little grudgingly; and
my thoughts went back with reluctant
step to those early affairs of mine,
which I have already frankly disclosed
In this chronicle, and I wondered, with
her counterpart before me, how much
Helen really meant to me. Rosalind
studied me with her frank, merry
eyes; then she bent forward and ad
dressed me with something of that
prescient air with which my sisters
UBed to lecture me.
"Mr. Donovan, I fear you are a little
mixed In your mind this morning, and
1 propose to set you straight."
"About what. If you please?"
"I can tell you exactly why It Is that
Helen has taken so Strang hold of your
Imagination why, In fact, you are la
love with her."
"Not that not that."
She snatched the fotl from the table
and cut the air with It several times
as I started toward her. Then she
itamped her foot and saluted me.
"Stand where you are, sir! Your
race, Mr. Donovan, has a bad reputa
tlon In matters of the heart. For a mo
ment you thought you were In love
with me; but you are not, and you are
not going to be. You see, I understand
you . perfectly."
"That's what my sisters used to tell
"Precisely? Aad I'm another one of
your atatera you must have scores ot
them! and 1 expect you to oe increaa
lnelv croud of me."
"Of coursa I admire Helen H I he-
fan. I fear, a little sheepishly.
"And you admire most what you
don't understand about her! Now that
you examine me la the light of day
you sec what a tremendous dlfferenea
there is between us. I am auogeiuei
obvious: I am not tha least bit subtle
But Helen nussles and thwarts you.
You did me a great service last ntght,
and you would serve me again, I am
confident of It; and I hope, when all
these troubles are over, that wa shall
continue my father, and you and I
the best friends In the world."
I cannot deny that I was a good deal
abashed by this declaration spoken
without coquetry, and with a sincerity
of tone and manner that seemed con
clusive. I began stammering some reply, but
she recurred abruptly to the serious
business that hung over us.
"I know you will do what you can
for Aunt Pat." I wish you would tell
her, If you think It wise, that father Is
here. They should understand each
other. And Helen, my splendid, cour
ageous, beautiful cousin you see I
don't grudge her even hor hotter looks,
or Unit Intrepid heart that makes us
so different. I am sure you ran man
age all tlrose things in the host
possible way. And now I must find
my father and tell him that you are
going to arrange a meeting with Aunt
Tat. and talk to hrsl of our future."
8h led the way up to the garden,
and as I struck off Into the road she
waved her hand to me, standing under
the overhanging sign that proclaimed
room and took up a book.
"I wish to see you alone," said Hel
en, "and I didn't want Aunt Pat to
know I came," and she glanced toward
Sister Margaret, whose brown habit
and nun's bonnet had merged Into the
shadows of a remote alcove.
The brim of Helen's white-plumed
hat made a little dusk about her eyes.
Pink and white became her; she put
aside her parasol, and folded her un
gloved hands, and then, as she spoke,
her head went almost Imperceptibly to
one side, and I found myself bending
forward as I studied the differences
between her and the girl on the Tippe
canoe. Helen s Hps were fuller and
ruddier, her eyes darker, her lashes
longer. But there was another differ
ence, too subtle for my powers of
analysis; something less obvious than
the length of lash or the color of eyes;
and I was not yet ready to give a
name to it. Of one thing I was sure:
My pulses quickened before her; and
her glance thrilled through me as Ros
alind's had not.
"Mr. Donovan, I have come to ap
peal to you to put an end to this mis
erable affair Into which we have
brought you. My own position has
grown too difficult, too equivocal, to be
borne any longer. You saw from
my father's conduct last night how
hopolesB it Is to try to reason with
him. He has brooded upon his troubles
until he is half mad. And I learned
from him what I had not dreamed of,
that my Uncle Arthur Is here here,
of all places. 1 suppose you know
Yes; but it is a mere coincidence.
It was a good hiding place for blm, as
well as for us."
"It Is very unfortunate for all of us
that he should be here. I had hoped
he would bury himself where he would
never be heard of again!" she said,
and anger burned for a moment in her
face. "If he has any shame left, I
should think he would leave here at
"It's to be remembered, Miss Hol
brook, that he came first; and I am
quite satisfied that your father sought
htm here before you and your aunt
came to Annandale. It seems to me
the equity lies with your uncle the
creek as a hiding place belongs to him
by right of discovery."
She smiled ready agreement to this,
and I felt that she had come to win
support for some plan of her own. She
had never been more amiable; certain
ly she had never been lovelier.
"You are quite right. We had all ol
us better go and leave him In peace.
What Is it he does there runs a ferry
or manages a boathouse?"
"He is a canoe-maker," I said, dryly,
"with more than a local reputation."
Her tone changed at once.
"I'm glad; I'm very glad he has es
caped from his old ways; for all out
sakes," she added, with a little sigh
"And poor Rosalind! You may no)
know that he has a daughter. She li
about a year younger than I. Shi
must have had a sad time of It. I wai
named for her mother and she foi
mine. It yon ittould meet her. Mr.
Donovan, I wish you would tell her
how sorry I am not to be able to sea
her. But Aunt Pat must not know
that Uncle Arthur Is hero. I think
she has tried to forget him, and her
troubles with any father have effaced
everything else. I hope you will man
age that, for me; that Aunt Pat shall
not know that Uncle Arthur and Rosa
lind rre here. It could only distress
her. It would be opening a book that
she believes closed forever."
Her solicitude for her aunt's paaca
of mind, spoken with eyes averted and
in a low tone, lacked nothing.
"I have seen your cousin," I said. "I
saw her. In fact, this morning."
"Rosalind? Then you can tell me
whether whether I am really so like
her as they used to think!"
"You are rather like!" I replied
lightly. "Hut I shall not attempt to
tell you how. It would not do It
would involve particulars that might
prove embarrassing. There are times
when even I find discretion better
"You wish to savo my feelings," she
laughed. "Hut I am reully taller!"
"Hy an Inch she told me that!"
"Then you have seen her more than
"Yes; more than twice even."
"Then you must toll me wherein wo
are alike; I should really like to
"I have told you I rnn't; It's beyond
my poor powers. I will tell you this,
"That I think you both delightful."
"1 am disappointed In you. I thought
you. a maa of eouraaj. M pojiovan."
"Even brave nlch Taller at the can
non's mouth!" .
"You are undoubtedly an Irishman,
Mr. Donovan. I am sorry we shan't
have any more tenuis."
"Yci have said so. Miss Holbrook,
She laughed, and then glanced to
ward the brown figure of Sister Mar
garet, and was silent for a moment.
while the old clock on the ' stair
boomed out the half hour and was an
swered cheerily by the pretty tinkle
of the chapel chime. I counted four
poppy leaves that fluttered free from
a bowl on the book shelf above her
head and lazily fell to the floor at her
"I had hoped," she said, "that we
were good friends, Mr. Donovan."
"I have believed that we were, Miss
"You must see that this situation
must terminate, that we are now at a
crisis. You car understand I need
not tell you how fully my sympathies

"That is only natural. I have noth
tng to say on that point."
"And you can understand, too, that
it has not been easy for me to be do
pendent upon Aunt Pat. You don't
know I have no Intention of talking
against her but you can't blame me
for thinking her hard a little hard on
"I am sorry, very sorry, that you
should have these troubles, MIbs Hol
brook." "I know you are," she replied, eager
ly, and her eyes brightened "Your
sympathy has meant so much to Aunt
Pat and me. And now, before worse
"Worse things must not happen!"
"Then we must put an end to It all,
Mr. Donovan. There is only one way.
My father will never leave here until
Aunt Pat has settled with him. And
it is his right to demand it," she hur
ried on. "I would have you know that
he Is not as black as he has been
painted. He has been his own worst
enemy; and Uncle Arthur's ill doings
must not be charged to him. But he
has been wrong, terribly wrong, in his
conduct toward Aunt Pat. I do not
dei.y that, and he does not. But It is
only a matter of money, and Aunt Pat
has plenty ot It; and there can be no
question of honor between Uncle Ar
thur and father. It was Uncle Arthur's
act that caused all this trouble; fa
ther has told me the whole story. Quite
likely father would make no good use
of his money I will grant that. But
think of the strain of theBe years on
all of us; think of what it has meant
to me, to have this cloud hanging over
my life! It is dreadful beyond any
words it Is hideous; and I can't stand
It any longer, not another week not
another day! It must end now and
Her tear-filled eyes rested upon me
pleadingly, and a sob caught her
throat as she tried to go on.
' But" I began.
"Please please'" she broke in
touching her handkerchief to her eyes
and smiling appeallngly. "I am ask
ing very little of you, after all."
"Yes, It Is little enough, but It seems
to me a futile interference. If your
father would go to her himself, if you
would take him to her that strikes
me as the better strategy ot the mat
ter." "Then am I to understand that you
will not help; that you will not do this
for us for me?"
"I am sorry to have to say no, Miss
Holbrook " I replied, steadily.
"Then I regret that I shall have to
go further; I roust appeal to you as a
personal matter purely. It Is not
easy; but If we are really very good
She glanced toward Sister Margaret,
then rose and walked out upon the ter
"You will hate me " aha begaa,
smiling wanly, the tears bright In hei
eyes; and she knew that It was not
easy to hate her. "I have taken
money from Mr. Gillespie, for my fa

under obligations to Mr. Gillespie. It
was wrong, It was very wrong ot me,
but I was distracted, half erased by

And aow yau ara my friend; will you

tearful, her back to tha balustrade, her
band at her side lightly touching It.
She had confidence, I thought, In tha
power of tears, as sha slipped her
handkerchief Into her sleava aad

"Of course Mr. Gillespie only loaned

I believe that an hour's talk will settle

A new machine shop Is soon to be

construction of which is to begin
within the next few weeks.
