you possibly could love anything, and
I believe that when you ask me to

He sat looking at her. On her face
was the weary look that rested there
so often now when she sat alone. Two
months had not passed since they part
ed, but the time had aet, ita. mark on
her. 'He looked at her carefully, from
the brown; smooth. forehead to the lit

look had grown over the little face, and
It made Its. charm for him stronger,
for pain and , time, which trace deep
lines and write a story on a human
face, have a strangely different effect
ou one face and another. The face
that is only fair, even very fair, they

beauty is the harmony between that
which speaks from within and the
form through which it speaks power is
added by all that causes the outer man
to bear more deeply the Impress of the
Inner. ': The pretty woman fades with
the roses on her cheeks and the girl
hood that lasts an. hour. The' beautiful
woman finds her fullness of bloom
only when a past has written itself on
her, and her power is then most irre
sistible when it seems going.
From under their half closed lids the
keen eyes looked down at her. Her
shoulders were bent. For a moment
the little figure had forgotten Its queen
ly bearing and drooped wearily. The
wide dark eyes watched the fire very
softly. ' ,t ' - ' , . -h ,

Lives are saved by
Mr. O. H. Snyder. 1310 Loaiaiaoa St..
Lewreaee, Kansas, tells how he was cured by Dr.
Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People. He says:
' " I am now seventy years of age. About three
years ago I experienced a coldness or numbness in
the feet, then creeping up my' legs until It reached
my body. I grew very thiA AzL flesh," my "appetite
was vetm poor and I did not'relish mytood. .At
last I became so bad I was unable to raqve about.
X consulted several distinguished physicians, one,
telling me that I had locomotor ataxia, another,
that I had creeping paralysis. I took their med
icines but they did me no good and I continued to
, ' One day nearly a year ago, a friend advised me
to try Dr. Williams' Pink Pills for Pale People., I
Immediately commenced their use, throwing all
other medicines away. Before I had finished my'
first bos I found that they were benefiting me.' I
used twelve boxes in all and was perfectly cured
Although It Is over six months since I used my last
: pill there has been no recurrence of the disease.
My appetite Is now good and my general health
Is better than It has been for many years." ' '
To. save a life when -medical
science fails is a, miracle. To restore
good health when hope has been aban
doned is a miracle. To conquer disease
long supposed incurable is a miracls. All
this, and more , is accomplished by Dr.
Williams Pink Pills for Pale People. If
everybody understood the potent power oj
this wonderful remedy muck needless suf
fering would be prevented many lives
would be saved. . i ' t:

she was not being retained in ber pres
ent position against her will and was
not a little relieved when she sat up
and held out her hand for the shawl.
"I must go," she said.
The stranger wrapped the shawl very
carefully about her.
t "Keep it close around your face, Lyn
dall. It is very damp, outside. .. Shall 1
walk with you to the house?" :.,
"No. Lie down and rest. I will come
and wake you at 3 o'clock."
. She lifted her face that he might kiss
It, and when be had kissed it once she
still held It that he might kiss It again.
Then he let her out. He had seated
himself at the fireplace when she re
opened the door.
"Have you forgotten anything?"
"No." , ,
. She gave, one long,, lingering look at
the old room. When she was gone and
the door shut, the stranger filled his
glass and sat at the table ipplng It
The night, outside was misty and
damp. The faint moonlight, trying to
force Its way through the thick air,
made darkly visible the outlines of the
buildings. The stones and walls were
moist, and now and then a drop, slowly
collecting, fell from the eavea to the
ground. Doss, not liking the change
from the cabin's warmth, ran quickly
to the kitchen doorstep, but his mis
tress walked slowly past him and took
her way up the winding footpath that
ran beside the stone wall of the camps.
When she came to the end of the last
camp, she threaded her way among the
stones and bushes till Bhe reached the
German's grave. " 'Why she' had' come
there she hardly knew. She stood
looking down. Suddenly she bent and
put one band on the face of a wet
stone,1'- '. : -
"1 shall never come . to you again,"
Then she knelt on the ground and
leaned her face upon the stones.
"Dear old man, "good old man,; I am
so tired!" she said, for we will come to
the dead to tell secrets we would never
have told to the living. "I am so tired!
There is light, there is warmth!" she
wailed. "Why am I alone, so hard, so
cold? I am go weary of myself! Itja

her cheek against the wooden post. "1

The water gathered slowly on her
shawl and fell on to the wet stones,
but she lay there crying bitterly, for so
the living soul Will cry to the dead and
the creature to Its God, and of all this
crying there comes nothing. The lift
ing up of the hands' brings no salva
tion. Redemption is from .within, and
neither from God ;,nor man. It is
wrought out by the soul itself with suf
fering and through time.
Doss, on the kitchen doorstep, shiv
ered and wondered .where his mistress
staid so long, and once, sitting sadly
there In the damp, he had (dropped
asleep and dreamed that old Otto gave
him a piece of bread and patted him
on the head, and when he woke his
teeth chattered, and he moved to an
other stone to see If it was drier. At
last .he heard his mistress step, and
they went into the house together.
She lighted a candle and walked to the
Boer woman's bedroom. On a nail un
der the lady in pink "hung the key of
the wardrobe. She took it down and
opened the great press. . From a little
'drawer she took 50, all she had in the
world, relocked the door and turned to
hang up the key. v Then she paused,
hesitated. The marks of tears were
still on her face, but she smiled.
"Fifty pounds for a lover! A noble
reward !'' she . said and opened ; the
wardrobe and returned the notes to
the drawer, where Em might find
Once In her own room, she arranged
the few articles she Intended to take
tomorrow, burned her old letters and
then went back to the front room to
look at the time. There were two
hours yet before she must' call him.
She sat down at the dressing table to
wait and leaned her elbows on It and
buried - her face in her hands. . The.
glass reflected the little brown ; head
with its even parting and the tiny
hands on which it rested. "One day I
will love something utterly, and then I
will be better," she said once. - Pres
ently she looked up. The large dark
eyes Xrom the glass. looked back at her.
She looked deep into, them. ; p ..
. "We are; all. alone, you and I," she
whispered. t"Np one helps, us; noone
understands us. But we will , help our
selves." -; The eyes looked back, at her.
There was a world - of assurance In
their still depths. .... So they, had looked
at her ever since she could remember,
when it was, but a small child's face
above a blue pinafore. "We shall nev
er be quite alone, you and I," she said.
"We. shall always be together, as we
were when we were little.".,, i , t
The beautiful eyeTT looked into the
depths of her soul. ; ;.
"We are not afraid. We will help
ourselves!" : she said. She stretched
out her hand and pressed it over their
on the glass. "Dear eyest We wij

choly crowd in and about the wagon
house, and the solitary gander, who
alone had survived the six months'
want of water, walked hither and
thither, printing his webbed footmarks
on the mud, to have them washed out
the next instant by the pelting rain,
which at 11 o'clock still beat on the
walls and roofs with unabated ardor.
Gregory as be worked In the loft
took no notice of it beyond stuffing
a sack into the broken pane to keep it
out, and, In spite of the pelt and patter,
Em's clear voice might be heard
through the open trapdoor from the
dining room, where she sat at , work,
singing the "Blue Water" .
'... , "And take me sway, 1
And take me away, .
And" take me away
. ; ' To the Blue Water" -
that quaint childish song of the people
that has a world of sweetness and sad,
vague yearnjng when sung over and
over dreamily by a woman's voice as
she sits alone at her work. But Greg-
ory beard neither that nor yet the loud
laughter of the Kaffir maids that every
now and again broke through from the.
kitchen, where they joked and worked.
Of late Gregory bad grown strangely
Impervious to the sounds and . sights
about him.' His lease had run out, but
Em had said: "Do not renew it. 1 need
one to help me. Just stay on." And she
had added : "You must not remain in
your own little house. Live with me.
You can look after my ostriches better
so."-. ' '
And Gregory did not thank her.
What difference did it - make to him,
paying; rent or not, living there or not?
It was all one. ; But yet he came. Em
wished Ithat he would still sometimes
talk of the strength and master right
of man, but Gregory , was as one smit
ten on the cheek bone. " She might do
what she pleased, he would find no
fault, had no word to say;; He had for
gotten that It Is man's rfgbt to rule. On
that rainy morning hehad lighted his
pipe at the kitchen fire , and when
breakfast was over stood in the front
door watching the water rush down
the road till the pipe died out tn his
mouth. , Em saw she must do some
thing for him and found him a large
Calico duster. He had sometimes talked
of putting the loft neat, and today she
could find nothing else for him to do.
So she had the ladder put to the trap
door that he need not go out In the
wet, and Gregory with the broom and
duster mounted to the loft. Once at
work,' he - worked hard. . . He . dusted
down the very rafters and cleaned the
broken candle molds and bent forks
that had stuck In the thatch for 20
years. He placed .the black bottles
neatly In rows on an old box in the cor
ner and piled the skins on one another
and sorted the rubbish In all the boxes,
and at 11 o'clock his work was almost

case which had once held Waldo's
books and proceeded ' to examine the
contents of another which he had not
yet looked at. ' It was carelessly nailed
down. He loosened one plank and be
gan to lift out various articles of fe
male attire ' old fashioned caps,
aprons, dresses with long pointed bod
ies " such as he remembered to have
seen his mother wear , when he was a
little child. He shook them out care
fully to see there were no moths and
then sat down to fold them up again
one by one. They had belonged to
Em's mother, and the box as packed at
her death had stood untouched and
forgotten these long years.' She must
have been a tall woman, that mother
of Em's, for when he stood up to shake
out a dress 'the neck was on a level
with his.: and .the skirt touched the
ground. Gregory laid a nightcap out
on his knee and began rolling up. the
strings, but presently his fingers mov
ed slower and slower, then his chin
rested on his breast, and finally the im
ploring ; blue eyes were fixed on the
frill abstractedly. When Em's voice'
called to him from the foot of the lad
der, he started and threw the nightcap
behind him. .
She was only come to tell him that
his cup of soup was ready, and' when
he could hear that she was gone he
picked' p the nightcap again and a
great brown sun ;kapje," Just such a
"kapje" and ; such a dress as one . of
those; be remembered to have sien a

was very full of thought - He took
down a fragment ' of an old locking
glass from behind a beam and put the
"kapje" on. His beard looked some
what 'grotesque under ! It ''. He put - up
his hand to' hide it. - That was better.
The blue eyes looked out , with mild
gentleness that became eyes looking
out x from ; under a "kapje." Next he
took ; the brown ; dress and, looking
round furtively, . slipped ;. It over hls
head. :l He had just got his arms In the
sleeves and was trying to hook up the
back when an Increase in the patter of
the rain at the window made him drag
it off hastily. When he perceived there
was no one coming, 'he tumbled the
things back i?te the box and, covering

it carefully, went down the ladder.
Em was still at her work, trying to
adjust a new needle in the machine.
Gregory drank his soup and then sat
before her. an awful and mysterious
look in his eyes.
"I am going to town tomorrow," he
"I'm almost afraid you won't be able
to go," said Em, who was Intent on her
needle. "I don't think it Is going to
leave off today." .
VI am going," said Gregory.
Em looked up.
"But the 'sloots' are as full as rivers.
You cannot go. We can wait for the
post," she said. ...
"I am not going for the post," said
Gregory impressively.: ,
Em looked for explanation. None
"When will you be back r
"I am not coming back."
"Are you going to your friends?"
Gregory waited, then caught her by
the wrist, 'r- ' ::
"Look here, Em," he said between
his teeth. "I can't stand it any more?
I am going to her."
Since that day when he .had come
home and found Lyndall gone he had
never talked of her, but Em knew who
It was who needed to be spoken of by
no name. . " . ,
She said when he had released her
hand: . .
"But you do not know where she Is7
"Yes, I do. She was in Bloemfontein
when 1 heard last I will go there, and
I will find out where she went then,
and then, and then! 1 will bave her!"
Em turned the wheel quickly, and
the ill adjusted needle sprang Into 20
"Gregory," she said, "she does not
want us. She told us so clearly in the
letter she wrote." A. flush rose on her
face as she spoke. : "It will only be
pain to you, Gregory. Will she lie to
have you near her?" ,' -
JThere was an answer he might have
made, but it was his secret and he did
not choose to share it He said only:
"I am going." . .
"Will you be gone long, Gregory?"
"I do not know. ' Perhaps I shall
never come back. Do what you please
with my things. I cannot stay here."
r He rose from his seat.
."People say forget, forget!" .he cried,
pacing the room. "They are mad!
They are fools! Do they 6ay so to tnen
who are dying of thirst forget forget?
Why Is it. only to us they say so? It
Is a He toay that time makes It easy!
It is afterward, afterward, that it eats

quietly, day after day, as if I cared

to forget It?: ?t :lC;'v
"I read," he said "yes, and then I
come to a word she used, and it Is all

"I know what you think,'" he said,
turning upon Ena. "You think I am.
mad; you think I am going' to see
whether she will not ; like me! I am
not so foolish. 1 should have known
at first she never could suffer me. Who
am I, what am 1, that she should look
at me? If any one says it is not It

to stand sometimes in a place where
she has stood before."
ATT UNFINISHED UETTEB. ' ,
Gregory Rose had been gone seven
months. Em sat alone on a white
sheepskin before the fire.
The August wind,' weird and shrill,
howled round the , chimneys and
through the crannies and in walls and
doors And uttered a long, low cry as it
forced its way among the clefts of the
stones on the "kopje." It was a wild
night ; The prickly pear tree, stiff and
upright as It held Its arms, felt the
wind's might . and knocked Its flat
leaves heavily together till great
branches broke off. The Kaffirs as

Em had not' gone to bed. Who could
sleep on a night like this? So in the
dining room she had lighted a fire and
sat on the ground . before it turning

to bake. It would save ' work in the
