They slept at Onchan that night, and
nest day they reached Kirk Maughold.
And coming on the straggling old house
at Lague, after so long an absence,
Adam was visibly moved, saying he had
seen many a hwmMatloo sine the
days when he lived in It, and might the
lord make them profitable to his soul;
but only let it please God to grant him
peace and content and dally bread, and
there should be no more going hence

came down under the elms.
"Now, I thought aa much," she said
within herself, "and I warrant I know

" Adam entered the house with what
cheer of face he could command, being
hard set to keep back his tears, and
hailed his wife in a jovial tone, al
though his voice threatened to break,
and sat himself down In his old seat
bjr the chimney corner, with his black
thorn stick between his knees and his
hands resting upon it. Hut Mrs. Fair
brother made no answer to his greeting,
and only glanced from him to Greeba,
who tripped - softly behind him. and
from Greeba to Chaise, who came -shambling
in after them, vacantly scratching
hie uncovered head. Then, drawing, her
self up, and holding back her skirts,
she eald. very coldly, while her wrin
kled face twitched:
"And. pray, what 111 wind blowe you
"An 111 wind indeed. Ruth." Adam
answered, "for it is the wind of ad

Then there was a grins silence for a
moment. Old Adam gripped eonvul- !
slvely at the staff he leaned on, and
aU but as loud as the ticking of the
clack was the beating of his Mart.
"God give me patience." be said.
"Tea. I'll bear it meekly. Hutu," he

Bnt. unable to support any longer
the strife for mastery that waa tearing
at his heart, he gave way to his
wrath, and cried out In a loud voice,
'Out on ycu, woman! Out on you!
Ood forgive me the evil day I set eyes
on you! Ood forgive me the damned
day I took you to my breast to rend
It." ' '
While this had been going forward
Greeba bad stood silent at the back of
her father's chair, with eyelashes quiv
ering and the fingers of both hamls
clenched together. But now she step
ped forward and said, "Forgive him.

He will be sorry for what he has said;
I'm sure he will. But only think, dear
mother: he la In great, great trouble,
and he Is past work, and if this Is not
his home, then he Is homeless."
And at the sound of that pleadinp
voice Adam's wrath turned In part tc
tenderness, and he dropped back to tin
chair and began to weep.
"I am ashamed of my tears, child,"
he said; "but they are not shed foi
