with him. Grace Noir. Gregory's private
secretary, takes a violent dislike to Fran
and advises her to go away at once.
Kran hints at a twenty-year-old secret,
and Gregory in agitation asks Grace to
leave the room. Fran relates the story
wf how Gregory married a young girl at
Springfield while attending college and
then deserted her. K ran is the child of
that marriage. Gregory ha'd married his

Kran is the daughter of a very dear friend

effort to drive Fran from the Gregory

decides to ask Boh Clinton to go to
Springfield to Investigate Fran's storv.
Kran enlists Abbott in her battle against
Grace. Fran offers her services to Greg
ory as secretary during the temporary
absence of Grace. The latter, hearing of
Fran's purpose, returns and interrupts a
touching scene between father anil
daughter. Grace tells Gregory she in

passion, lie takes her in his arms. Fran
walks in on them, and declares that
Grace must leave the house at once. To
Gregory's consternation he learns of
Flinton's mission to Snrinefleld. Clinton
returns from Springfield and. at Fran's re
quest. Ashton urgest him not to disclose
what he has learned.
It was impossible for Abbott to re

“You can't make no such assurance.

of the animal kingdom he twigs to,
she’ll not leave his roof.”
"Bob, if Ehe leaves that house in the
morning, for ever, won't you agree to

because Fran asks it?”
"Fran’s another angel, bless her
heart! But you can’t work it.”
"Leave it to me, Bob. I’ll be guided
by the spur of the moment.”
“I need a bookkeeper at my store,”
Robert said, ruminating.
“I promise you that Miss Noir will
soon be open to offers.”

"Half an hour will do the business,”
said Abbott stoutly. “Come!”
"Be sure to call for Mr. Gregory by
himself,” said Robert, as they walked
swiftly back to the Gregory residence.
“If Grace comes into the room while
we’re talking, or Mrs. Gregory—”
“If they do,” Abbott said quickly,
“you are not to utter one word, not
one. about Springfield—you under
stand? It’s a bargain, and I shall hold
you to your word of honor.”
"For half an hour I won’t say a
word,” Clinton declared, “unless it’s

Just Thirty Minutes.
During the week spent by Robert
Clinton in search of Fran’s life-secret,
a consciousness of his absence and its
cause was like a hot iron branding
Gregory’s brain. What a mocking fa
tality, that it should have been Grace
to send Robert on his terrible errand—
an errand which must result in ruin!
Mrs. Gregory would be pitied when
it became known how she had been de
ceived; Fran would be pitied because
she was a disowned daughter; Grace
would be pitied for trusting in the in
tegrity of her employer—but Gregory,
who of all men needed pity most,
would be utterly despised. He did not
think of himself alone, but of his works
of charity—they, too, would fall, in his
disgrace, and Walnut Street church—
even religion itself—would be dis
credited because of an exposure that
could avail nothing.
Gregory had been too long proclaim
ing the living God not to feel Him as
a Presence, and in this Presence he
felt a shuddering fear that could sug
gest no relief but propitiation. Tie as
well as Abbott Ashton had kept him
self informed of Robert’s movements
as far as they were known to Miss
Sapphira, hence the day of Robert’s
return found his thought of atonement
at its most frenzied stage.
As evening wore on, he made up his
mind to the fatal step.
Before Robert could oppose him.
Gregory would confess. Now that
the last hour had come, he sought his
wife, reeling like a sick man as he
descended the hall stairs.
Mrs. Gregory was softly playing an
old hymn, when he discovered her
presence in the brilliantly lighted par
lor. Grace was expecting a visit from
Clinton and had made the room cheer
ful for his coming, and Mrs. Gregory,
looking in and finding no one present,
had sunk upon the stool before the
piano. She did not see^her husband,
for her face was bent low as she feel
ingly played, "I Need Thee Every
Gregory, well-nigh overwhelmed
with the realization of what he meant
to do, grasped the door for support.
Presently he spoke, brokenly, “Lucy,
how true that is—we do, indeed, need
Him every hour.”
She did not start at his voice, though
his presence had been unsuspected.
She raised her serious eyes, and ob
served his haggard face. “Mr. Greg
ory, you are ill.”
“No—the light hurts my eyes.” He
turned off the lights and drew- a chair
near her. The room was partly re
vealed by an electric arc that swung
at the street corner—its mellowed
beams entered the open window.
"Lucy, I have something very impor
tant to say to you.”
Her fingers continued to wander
among the keys, making the hymn
barely audible, then letting it die
away, only to be revived.
“Lucy, I have never spoken of this
before, but it has seemed to me for
a long time that we have wandered
rather far apart—yes, very far apart.
We sit close together, alone, our hands
could touch, but our souls live in dif

ferent worlds. Do you ever feel that
answered almost in a whisper, “Yes.”
“Perhaps it is my fault,” said Greg
ory, “although I know that if you had
taken more interest in what interests
me, if you had been true to the Faith
as I have tried to be—”
“I have been true to you,” said Mrs.
“Of course—of course—there is no
question of our being true to each
other. I feel that I am not wholly to
blame. Lucy, it has been my fault
and it has been your fault—that is
how I look at it.”
There was silence, then she said,
“There seems nothing to be done."
“How do you mean? You speak as
if our love were dead and buried—”
She rose abruptly, saying, “And its
“Sit down, Lucy—I haven’t told you
what I came to tell—you must listen
and try to see it as I see it. Let us
be reasonable and discuss the future
in a—in a sensible and matter-of-tact
way. If you will agree—”
"I will not agree to it,” she answered
firmly. "Let me go, Mr. Gregory,
there is no need ever to bring up that
He had risen, and now in blank
amazement, he stared at her, repeat
ing, "You will not agree to it? To
wbat? You are unreasonable. What
subject have I brought up?"
“It is very true that we have drifted
too far apart to be as we were in the
beginning. But there is still some
thing left to me. and this something I
shall cling to as long as I can. I mean

"My God!” whispered Gregory, fall
ing back, "then somebody has told you
about Springfield—it was Fran!”
"I don't know what you mean,” she
returned, apparently without emotion.
"What I mean is, that I shall never
consent to a divorce."
“A divorce? Good heavens, Lucy,
are you mad? Do you think I want
a separation because you disown the
church? What have 1 ever done to
make you imagine such an absurdity?”
She answered gently, "Yes. it seems
I misunderstood. But you said you
wanted me to discuss the future in a
matter-of-fact way, and I couldn’t
think of the future as having any other

can endure much.” she went on, in a
milder tone, finding him silent; “I
often wonder if many women could en
dure as silently—but there must never
be a name mentioned between us.’
Her manner was so unwontedlv
final, that he stood looking at her, not
knowing how to resume the pressing
subject of his past. They were in that
same silent attitude when Grace Noir
came in from the hall.
Grace turned up the lights, and then
—"Oh!” It was impossible to prevent
an unpleasant compression of the
mouth at discovering Gregory so near
his wife. "Am I In the way? I am
looking for company, and I heard the
doorbell—please excuse me!” she add
ed. biting off the words.
“Of course you are not in the way,”
Gregory returned desperately. “Com
pany. you say? And you heard the
doorbell—is Bob Clinton—” He grew
whlte. “My eyes are bad, for some
reason,” he muttered, and switched off
the lights again.
“How very dark you have It in
here!” said Grace reprovingly. "Of
course Mr. Clinton has been shown
the back-parlor, where it is light. I
will go to him there, and leave you
two—” she paused irresolutely, but
Grace had no sooner gone than Greg
ory with an effort found his voice.
“Lucy, my conscience has tormented
me until it will not let me rest—about
you. It’s right to know something
more about my life than I have ever
“Right in there,” said the maid’s
voice, from the hall, and Abbott Ash
ton and Robert Clinton entered the
While Robert was greeting Mrs.
Gregory with exaggerated pleasure, in
order to escape facing her husband,
Abbott spoke to the other with an odd
sense of meanness, as if he partook,
by mere nearness, of the other's cow
ardice. "I wish to speak to you for
a few minutes, Mr. Gregory.”
Gregory, like an animal brought to
bay, said, “I suppose you’ve some ex
cuse about playing cards with Fran.”
"More important than playing
cards,” Abbott returned.
Gregory fought off the inevitable:
"If you refer to losing your position
at the public school—”
"No, Clinton has come home from
Springfield, and we have a matter—”
“It’s pressing business,” spoke up
Robert, who all this time had been
asking Mrs. Gregory if her mother waa
well, if Simon Jefferson was no worse,
if Fran was hearty, if Grace Noir was
at home—“and private business.”
“I have no business,” Mr. Gregory
exclaimed, in fear, "that my wife need

membering, he struck the keys a re

"No, no!” exclaimed Mr. Gregory,
starting to the door to intercept her,
‘‘I want you to stay. I'll have no se
crets from you, Lucy. I want you to
hear what these gentlemen have to
say.” He glared at Abbott as if daring
him to speak the words that must de
stroy his wife's last feeble hold on
"I hope Mrs. Gregory will excuse
us.” said Abbott, smiling at her as
cheerfully as he could, "but she knows
that there are matters of business
that women don’t understand, or care
to learn. This is something that re

‘‘Of course I understand you. Ab

Robert reveled in her beauty, and to
that extent his anger against Gregory
flamed higher. “Pretty soon.” he said,
"pretty soon. Miss Grace—in just
twenty minutes—” he looked at his
watch, then at Abbott.
“I must tell you. Mr. Gregory," Ab
bott began rapidly, “that I had just
thirty minutes to consummate the

when we came here, and ten minutes

Abbott spoke carefully, at the same
time drawing a little farther away
from the man he despised: “Bob has
been to Springeld about that matter,
“No, I don’t," cried Gregory. “Or if
I do—tell it out—all of it.”
“He has been to Springfield," Ab

want to give you a blow, and give Bob

to transfer your secretary to his store,
where a bookkeeper is needed.”
"Oh, indeed.” interposed Grace Noir
icily. “I am a mere pawn, I presume,

would like to ask Mr. Clinton If he

MUCH VIRTUE IN GOOD YAWN
Beneficial Exercise, Though It Might
Be Well for One to Select the
Time and Place. ^
Yawning may be rude especially in
company—but it is a good thing
,'ou to do.
For one thing, it ventilates the
lungs. When you take an ordina y
breath the lungs are not comp
filled, nor are they thoroughly emptied
by an ordinary respiration. J^ere

the result is a yawn, stretching tn
lungs to their fullest extent,
them with clean, fresh air and driving
the foul air out.
That’s one reason why It is 8°°°
yawn. For another, yawning open
and stretches and ventilates al
various passages leading to the lung ■
You will oerhaDS be surprised to
know that yawning is even beneficial
to your hearing.
The cracking sound which you so
often hear when giving an extra big
yawn is due to the stretching and
opening of the eustachian tubes.
These tubes communicate between the
ear and the back of the throat. If
they are congested, which happens
when you have a bad cold in the head,
people complain of deafness.
If you feel inclined to yawn, then,
do so. It is Nature’s way of cleaning
out your lungs and air passages.

DEATH FROM ELECTRIC SHOCK
Cessation of Life Is Due to Contrac
tion of the Fibrils or Muscular
Fibers of the Heart.
While every one knows that an elec
trie shock, if powerful enough, will
cause death, there are very few who
know exactly the cause, and from a
description given in a recent English
magazine, quoting an authority on the
subject, the whole matter is simple.
Death produced from electric shock,
says this magazine, usually is the re
sult of contraction of the fibrils or
muscular fibers of the heart, or of
paralysis of the respiratory organs.
While doctors have been unable to
find any treatment that will cure the
former, artificial respiration often
overcomes the respitatory paralysis.
The effects of direct and alternating
currents vary with the current
strength, the duration of contact and
the path through the body; and With
alternating currents low frequency
usually is more dangerous than high.
The lower animals are more suscep
tible to electric shock than man. dogs i
