In a Prison CeM.
RS. LANG HAM led Lcr daughter
straight to Ler room, and when
they were inside she closed tlie
door and sank into a chair.
luitnig from her rapid walk.
"What is it, mother?" Cora demand
ed. "You ouxlit to understand, heaven
knows!" Mrs. Lanjrhani cried. "Haven't
'you heard about Howard Tins ley?"
"Yes. but what"
"Well, you have ordinary sense, I'm
sure," Mrs. Lanham Cared out. "This
whole town and a few even down at
home have been connecting your name
wirh that boy's for the last two
months. I said nothing because you've
had harmless affairs witit all sorts of
3-oung men everywhere we've ever
spent the summer, But this is differ
ent. You've entertained him at our
house. The Atlanta papers, because
lie was a sort of editor, made mention
of hi visit to us. We are tied up in
this terrible affair, I tell you. Your
father will be furious enough to di
own you, and folks ia the hotel here
are actually asking me if you and th;:t
young jailbird are not engaged.'-'
Stunned beyond utterance over what
had hapi'ened prior to this tirade, Cora
sank into a chair near a window. She
could think of only one tiling now.
and that was the calamity which had
befallen her friend.
"Why don't you talk? Say some
thing, for God's sake!" Mrs. Lan?hani
groaned. "What are we going to do?"
"Do? Why, mother, what can we
do? It is not our fault. We can't
"We can do something, and we must
do something, and without delay," the
older woman broke in. "We can pack
as quickly as possible and get away
from this silly town. The papers will
announce our return to Atlanta, and
the public will at least know that we
are not here backing the man up, no
matter what the gossips may try to
make out of his past attentions to you.
If we stay here they willa.yvou are
:hea rt broken. And who do yon think
would care to marry a girl under a
cloud like that?"
"So you would have me turn against
"him the moment he is in trouble," Cora
answered. "Howard will know why
we left town, and that will add to his
humiliation. He may be innocent, moth
er. They say he denies it outright."
"Of course he would deny it! What
fool wouldn't under the circumstances?
Don't argue with me, Cora. I'm your
mother, and right now I have a clearer
head than you have. You will live to
see the day you will be glad I forced
you to be sensible. We've got to get
away today on the first train."
"Do you mean to say that you actual
ly want to stay?" Mrs. Langham ex
claimed, rising and striding heavily to
her daughter's chair and standing over
"I don't know what I want," Cora
muttered despondently. "I don't don't
know how I feel toward him. I don't
know my own heart. I don't know
that I hare a heart like most girls, but
I know I cm sorry for Howard and do
not want to accuse him by running
awav like this. His other friends"
Cora was thinking in dismay of Mary
Trumbley "will not turn against him.
"What if they don't?" burst from the
desperate matron's lips. "What have

they can out of it. I see the line they
wi'l pursue. They will say that a pop
ular Atlanta girl is staying here to be
cies to his i;eil every day. You've got
to be sensible."
Out of breath Mrs. Langdon paused.
Cora sat mute, pale and almost quiver
ing for several minutes. Then she
arose. She drew herself up to her full
height, and. going to her bureau, she
looked at her face in the mirror. Talc
ing up "i powder puff, she applied some
pink powder to her cheeks and gen
tly touched it with her handkerchief.
Cora faced her mother calmly. "Yes.
I've got to decide I've got to be sensi
ble and have it over with," she said
deliberately. "lie and I are not en
gaged. He has never even said in so
tinny words that he loved me. It was
just a game, mother: but it was the
most interesting one I was over in. I
know his worth, and if ,he 'were to
tell me he is innocent I'd believe him.
I have been spoiled nil my life, but
T long for something more genuine and
decider than I have ever had. Every
oilier man that is attracted to me has
been attracted by my position and
money; but it was not so with Howard,
All along I have seen that he despised
what I have. All along I hate seen
that if I could have thrown it away
and become, of my own volition, as
pvoi as he is for his sake, he would
have loved me. But I aiu not unself

practical the habit of grasping the
safe side in me which came from you
or father, or both, that holds me in
"You needn't be afraid that I will act
foolishly," she went on. "I loathe my
self for it, but when I heard of the
murder and the likelihood ot Howard's
arrest my hrst thought was of myself.
I shall look out for our Interests as
carefully as you would."
"You've got a lot more sense than I
gave you credit lor having, Mrs.
Langham breathed, in relief.
"I have less heart, that's all," Cora
said bitterly. "I begin to think that
the possession of material advantages
in life means doing without something
finer and more lasting. I got that from
Howard. lie reads, and I don't. I'll
either not marry at all or I'll marry
without deep love or even admiration.
Mother, Mary Trumbley the girl you
admired loves Howard unselfishly.
She would go to jail with him today if
she had a chance. It may be that he
will establish his innocence. It may
be that she will help him do it, and
"They will marry and lie happy ever
afterward." ' Mrs. Langham made the
jest in sheer elation, over her daugh
"Yes," Cora replied, "and prove by a
life of genuine happiness and whole
some simplicity that the thing you and
I strive for and hold so tightly is
worthless absolutely worthless. But
that is neither here nor there," Cora
sighed. "All of us who are born to
the possession of means enough to in
sure us a life of empty idleness simply
go without a higher life. I heard a
sermon once about Christ and the rich

at this statement, but one striving for

ple contrasted to my own make my
heart ache from sheer emptiness. Some
things tells me that if I had been born
here of poor parents Howard Tinsley
and I would be fighting the obstacles
of life side by side"
"For heaven's sake, what is the mat
ter with you?" Mrs. Langham inter
rupted. "You are not like yourself."
"I really don't want to le like my
old self," Cora answered, her pretty
lijws twitching. "But you need not be
afraid. I shall do as you wish. I shall
do it because there is nothing else for
a woman in my position to do be
cause, in a sense, it is my duty."
"Then we'll pack up at once." Mrs
Langham said, with a deep breath.
"Nix Listen, mother." Cora turned
square around. "I am able to see both
sides of the matter. If I were to give
up my part in the play that the young
people are getting up and run off to
day there really would be room -for
talk. If we stay on here and act as If

"Yes, we'll stay," Cora said firmly
"Now, I'm going back to the hall.
They will need me to go over my part
with the rest. Mother, you can trust
me. I shan't make a fool of myself."
Mrs. Tinsiey soon visited Howard in
his cell and was glad to find him con
fident of a speedy release.
lassing through the gate, Mrs. Tins
ley trudged down the street to the ho
tel and entered at one of the side doors.
Going into the office, she found Sugart
at the desk looking over the register.
"How are yon, Mrs. Tinsiey?" He
greeted her in surprise, a blended look
of sympathy and embarrassment set
tling on his face
She pushed her bonnet farther back
and leaned against the desk. "How
ard has a room here, I believe," she
"Y'es, Mrs. Tinsiey; one flight up. to
the right down the hall."
"I want to sleep thar tonight if you
have no objections," she said. "I 1
want to le close to Howard and"
"Oh. it is all right," Sugart declared.
"Howard will be glad to have it ooc'u
pied, I know, and we'll do all we can
for your comfort. Doyou want to go
up now? If you do, I'll show yen
He led her up to the room.
"Anything I can do for you?"
"If you see my husband please tell
him not to wait fer me." she said. "Tvl

"All right. Mrs. Tinsiey, I'll tell him.
He's on the street, and I'll find him
and let him know."
Mrs. Tinsiey had a simple supper hi
her son's room that evening, and when
it was quite dark she slipped out into
The yard of the courthouse adjoin
ing the jail was large, well shaded and
grown with grass. No one was there,
and she passed through the gate and
went in. seeking a point from which
she could see the window opposite her
sou's cell. She heard the gate click.
and a moment later a tall figure loomed
up close to her. It was Abncr Daniel.
'I mtTi Hirain driving out," Abner
began. "He said you was goin' to stay
at the hotel awhile. I called tLar to
see you. They sent up to yore room
and said you was out. I looked sev
eral places i:v you an' finally come
here. I've got my buggy ready. I waix
to take you back home."
She took off her bonnet, and as she
twist d it in her hands he saw a grim
purpose gleaming in her eyes. "1
won't go," she said. "I'm -goin" to stay
right here on this spot till sunrise. I
know what I want, an I want to do
that. My child is up thar in confine
ment, Abncr Daniel, a I'm his moth
er that's enough to say I'm his moth
er. You' don't know how I feel. Not
a livin' man or woman on this earth
can have the slightest idea of it. Hi

to dispute it. I won't a bit longer, not

breast "ef this agony kin be put 011 a

speaks of folks that was advised to

Abner hung fire a moment,
"You can't cuss God, Cynthia Tins

is is of God an" from God. an ef you
could cxiss God it would le God cussin'
She put on her bonnet and held out
her hands wide apart. Her bonnet slid
slowly backward and was kept from
falling only by the strings tied beneath
her chin. "All that keeps me from

sure thar is sech a bein'. I have fought
unbelief all my life, savin' I believed
this an that fool statement jest to
keep from standin' in the way o other
folks that was seekin salvation: but
tonight I know by my own feeliu's
that thar is only one ruler- that could

tortured, an that is the devil."
"Hush, hush! You must hush!" Ab
