Neither enlisted, but Bent was drafted.
Just a few months before that affair

Poor, pale httle Vera! Where did she
get the strength to stand straight and
fearless before the woman whom she
had always feared before?
"I would rather die!" she said, below
her breath.
"Die? As if it would be hard to die!"
her aunt exclaimed, harshly, "To live

friendless, unable to put faith iu one
human being. But let me tell you why
the name of Damarel is hateful to me.
You never heard the story?"
"I have heard it, but not from you,"
answered the girl, gently.
And she stood in an attitude of deep
interest, as with the brief winter day
dying, and the shadows gliding to her
chair, Esther Claremont told her story.
"I loved Conrad Damarel," she said,
her voice pulsing with feeling; "I loved
him with my whole heart And be
ne played at love. He never truly
loved me, or he would not'.have made a
few impatient words of mine sufticient
excuse for breaking with me. I did
not mean them God knows I did not!
But they were spoken, and he made
them his excuse. He left me standing
in the sunlight out there."
She lifted one thin, tremulous hand,
and pointed to where a vast shtet of
white-covered lawn might have been
seen through the window.
That was the love of a Damarel!

had won, and married some stranger;

to the front, was badly wounded at
Petersburg, made a good soldier and
was finally discharged. Then he let
them know who the substitute was.
Bent had made a heap of money in the
meantime and he wanted to pay his
friend something, but nothing would
be accepted. Finally, however, my
neighbor, w ho had turned board of
trade man, got into a corner where he
stood to lose all he had, including his
credit He went to Bent and told him
all about it
"Draw on me for all you need, up to
the very limit of my bank account,"
said 3eut, and my neighbor took him
at his word. He put in 85,000 and it
went with the rest '1 lieu 810,000, and
that went. Then another 810,000, and
yet the other fellows were squeezing
him. If he could hold on a little while
he could carpet the board of trade with
bills, but the opposition seemed deter
mined to ruin him. He drew for a
whole 825.000 in a lump, and said that
if it bankrupted Bent and him too they
would be no worse off, barring age,
than when they quit school. His last
haul saved him, though if the corner
had not collapsed the very day it did
both he and his friend would have gone
down together.
As it was, the tumble made him a
very rich man, and he could pay back
all he had borrowed and still have a
fortune. But he has never risked a
dollar from that day to this, although
he has done business constantly for
other men.
He has built that house, and lives
there in elegant style, although he has
