[Fran hints at a twenty-year-old secret,
and Gregory In agitation asks Grace to
leave the room. Fran relates the story
jof how Gregory married a young girl at
flpringtield while attending college and
then deserted her. Fran Is the child of
that marriage. Gregory had married his
present wife three years before the death
•of Fran's mother. Fran takes a liking to
[Mrs. Gregory. Gregory explains that
[Fran is the daughter of a very dear friend

Mrs. Gregory insists on her making her

arms. Fran declares the secretary must
go. Grace begins nagging tactics in an
effort to drive Fran from the Gregory
borne. Abbott, while taking a walk alone
«at midnight, finds Fran on a bridge tell
!ing her fortune by cards. She tells Ab
bott that she is the famous lion tamer,
Fran Nonpareil. She tired of circus life
and sought a home. Grace tells of see
ing Fran come home after midnight with
u. man. She guesses part of the story
and surprises the rest from Abbott. She
idee ides to ask Bob Clinton to go to
Springfield to investigate Fran’s story.
Fran 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 and
daughter. Grace tells Gregory she in
tends to marry Clinton and quit his serv
ice. He declares that he cannot continue
his work without her. Carried away by
passion, he 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
Clinton’s mission to Springfield. Clinton
returns from Springfield and. at Fran's re
quest. Ashton urgest him not to disclose
what he has learned. On Abbott’s assur
ance that Grace will leave Gregory at once,
Clinton agrees to keep silent. Driven in
to a corner by the threat of exposure.

Robert exclaimed, looking significant

began to realize the compromise that
was offered, “you have always been

—very wrong—it is true that I bitter
ly—what shall I say?—antagonized the
Interests at Springfield. But that was
long ago. Am I to be punished now—”
"Mr. Gregory,” said Abbott, clearly
and forcibly, “I have nothing to do
with any punishment, I have nothing
to do with demanding the release of
your secretary. I am a mere agent
of the interests, sent to you to demand
that your secretary be dismissed in
the morning; and if you cannot see
your way to promise me now that you
will dismiss her, my office is ended.
If you can promise to send her away,
I give you my word the transactions

we are concerned. If you cannot prom

"In just ten minutes,” said Robert
Clinton, consulting his watch.
Grace stood looking at Gregory as if
turned .o stone. She had listened in
tently to every word as it fell from
Abbott's lips, but not once had she
turned her head to look at him.
"You are cruel,” Gregory flared out,
"you are heartless. If I send away
the only one who is in perfect knowl
edge and sympathy with my work—”
"Then you refuse?"
“Of course I refuse. I'll not permit

who have lost positions and the like,

Grace turned with cold dignity, and
moved slowly toward the hall door.
Fran slipped between Clinton and
the piano, and began to play softly, I
carelessly with one hand, while she j
watched the retreating figure.
In a very short time, Gregory found
himself alone in the parlor. Abbott
and Clinton had withdrawn rather
awkwardly, Mrs. Gregory had melted
away unobtrusively, and Fran, last of
all, had given the piano a final bang,
and darted out of the house.
Gregory stood pale and miserable.
It seemed as if all the world had de
serted him. The feature without
Grace would be as dreary as now
seemed his past with Fran’s mother.
He suffered horribly. Was suffering
all that life had left for him? Per
haps he was reaping—but is there no
end to the harvest? One sows in so
brief a time; is the garnering eternal?
A bell rang, but he was not curious.
Voices sounded at the front door, foot
steps passed, then silence once more—

• CHAPTER XIX.
The First Victory.
When Grace re-entered the parlor,
to lind Hamilton Gregory alone, her
eyes were full of reproach without
tenderness. As she came straight
toward him, an open letter in her
hand, liis body grew erect, and his
brown eyes, losing their glazed light,
burned from the depths.
‘‘Read it,” Grace said, in a thin,
brittle voice. ,
In taking the letter. Gregory touched
her hand. With recaptured alertness,
he held the missive to the light, and
"My Dear Miss Noir:
"This is to officially offer you the
position of bookkeeper at my grocery
store, now that Hamilton Gregory has
decided to make Fran his secretary.
Come over early in the morning and
everything will be arranged to your
satisfaction. I am,
Gregory looked up, and marked
the fixedness of her gaze. It seemed
to call upon him to avenge an insult.
He could only bluster, “Who brought
this thing here?” He flung the note
upon the table.
“A messenger.” Grace’s look did
The impudence! he exclaimed.
"However," said Grace, “I presume
it is final that I am dismissed?”
"Hut his unseemly haste in sending
this note—it’s infamous, that's what I
call it, infamous!”
“And you mean to take Fran in my
place, do you not?”
“You see,” Gregory explained, "Bob

to lapse into uncertain silence, then
said, “This note tells me definitely
that I am offered another position, but
you tell me nothing. It was I who
sent Mr. Clinton to Springfield to look
into the private record of that Fran."
"You see,” Gregory explained, "he
was afraid I might think it presumptu

tell you why we must part?”
Grace returned with a somber look,
“So Fran is to have my place!”
Gregory interposed passionately, "It
is because I love you.”
"So Fran is to be your secretary!”
“Grace, you have read my heart, I
have read yours; we thought we could
associate in safety, after that—but l
am weak. You never come into the
room that I am not thrilled with rap
ture. Life hasn’t any brightness for
me except your presence. What can I
do but protect you?”
“Mr. Gregory, Fran hasn't any in
terest in your work.”
“I love you, Grace—I adore you.
Beautiful darling—don’t you see you
must go away because you are so in
expressibly precious to me? That's
why I mustn't have you under my
roof." He sank upon his knees and
caught her hand. “See me at your
feet—should this thing be?"
Grace coldly withdrew her hand.
“In spite of all you say, you have en
gaged Fran in my place.”
“No one can take your place, dear.”
Graces voice suddenly vibrated:
“You tell me you love me, yet you
agree to hire that woman, in my
place—the woman I hate, I tell you:
yes, the spy, the enemy of this home.”
"Y’es, Grace, I do tell you that I
love you— would I be kneeling here
worshiping you, otherwise? And what
is more, you know that you love me—
you know it. That's why I must send
“Then send Fran away, when you
send me away."
“Oh, my God, if I could!” he ex
claimed, starting up wildly. “But you
see. it's impossible. I can't do that,
and I can't help you."
“Why is it impossible? Must you
treat better the daughter of an old
college friend, than ‘ the woman you
say you love? What are those myste
rious Springfield interests?”
“—And you are the woman who
loves me!” Gregory interrupted Quick
ly. “Say it, Grace! Tell me you iovi

“It makes me laugh!” Grace cried
out in wrath that could not be con
trolled, 'to hear you speak of love
in one breath and of Fran in the next.
Maybe some day you’ll speak both In
the same breath! Yes, I will go and
you can hire Fran.”
“But won’t you tell me goodby?’ he
pleaded. “As soon as I have become

Ashton wants to marry her—let him
take her away. Then she will be
gone. Then my—er—duty—to friend

come back again then, we might be

She stamped her foot violently.
“This need not be. and you know it.

know you love me. What Is there to

would suspect. Others would betray.

been made horribly miserable because
I’ve always had to be considering what
others would think and do!”
“Betray? What is there to betray?
Nothing. You are what you have al
ways been, and so am I. We didn’t
commit a crime in speaking the truth
for once-—you are sending me away
forever, and yet you try to temporize
on this eternity. Well—keep your

have one friend.” She snatched up
the open letter, and hurried toward
"Grace!” Gregory followed her
imploringly, “not Bob Clinton! Hear
me, Grace. If you ever marrry that
man, I shall kill myself.”
She laughed scornfully as she
snatched open the door.
“Grace, I tell you that Fran—”
“Yes!” exclaimed the other, her
voice trembling with concentrated an
ger, “let that be the last word between
us, for it is that, and that only which
separates us. Yes—that Fran!”
The Enemy Triumphs.
Old Mrs. Jefferson would long ago
have struck a blow against Grace Xoir
had she not recognized the fact that
when one like Grace wears the helmet
of beauty and breastplate of youth, the
darts ot the very angles of justice,
who are neither beautiful nor young,
are turned aside. Helplessly Mrs. Jef
ferson had -watched and waited and
now, behold! there was no more Drag

nothing could have exceeded the con
fidence of the old lady to the new sec
Mrs. 'Gregory's sense of relief was
not so profound as her mother’s, be
cause she could not think of Grace’s
absence except as a reprieve. Surely
she would return—but the present was
to be placidly enjoyed. Grace was
gone. Mrs. Gregory’s smile once more
reminded Fran of the other's half-for
gotten youth. When a board has lain
too long on the ground, one finds, on
its removel, that the grass is withered;
all the same, the grass feels the sun
Fran thanked herseii that uraee was
no longer silhouetted against the hori
zon. and Gregory, remarking this atti
tude of self-congratulation, was thrown
more than ever out of sympathy with
his daughter. Fran was indefatigable
in her duties as secretary, but her
father felt that it was not the same.
She could turn out an immense
amount of work because she was
strong and playing for high stakes—
but she did not have Grace’s method
ical ways—one never knew how Fran
would do anything, only that she would
dc it. Grace was all method, but more
than that she was as Gregory phrased
j it to himself—she was all Grace.
Gregory missed her every minute of
the day, and the harder Fran tried to
fill her place, the more he resented it.
Fran was separated from his sympa
thies by the chasm in his own soul.
The time came when Gregory felt
that he must see Grace again and be
alone with her. At first, he had
thought they must not meet apart
from the world; but by the end of
the week, he was wondering what ex
cuse he could offer to induce her to
meet him—not at Miss Sapphire's,
where she now boarded, not at the
grocery where Bob was always hover
ing about—but somewhere remote,
somewhere safe, where they might
talk about—but he had no idea of the
conversation that might ensue; there
was nothing definite in anything save
his fixed thought of being with her.
As to any harm, there could be none.
He had so long regarded Grace as the
best woman in the world, that even
after the day of kisses, his mind con
tinued in its inertia of faith—even the
gravitation of material facts was un
able to check its sublime course.

HISTORIC SPOT IS UNMARKED
'Location of Nation’s First White
House, in Philadelphia, Known,
but That Is All.
Excepting for a few months, Wash
ington lived In Philadelphia during
his entire administrations as presi
dent of the United States, and John
Adams did likewise during his term.
jThere was no White House, but a
brick house, and, as quite generally
Iknown, it stood on the south side of
Market street between Fifth and
iSixth streets. The house itself long
since disappeared, and it seems
strange that Philadelphia has never
taken the trouble to make in a suit
able way the spot where the nation's
executive mansion stood when occcu
pied by the Father of His Country.
When Washington came to Phila
delphia to attend the continental con
gress before taking command of the
army, he lived in the swellest board
ling house In the city. It was kept by
IMrs. Trlste, at the southwest corner
of Fifth and Market streets. But
(while more fashionable, the house has
been far less famous than the hore
modest one, two blocks farther west,
at the southwest corner of Seventh
and Market streets. It was in the lat
ter that Jefferson boarded, and on
the second floor, corner room, in
which he wrote the Declaration oMn
According to John Adams, who
could have qualified as chief gossip
at any quilting party, Philadelphia
was then away ah^d of Boston and
New York as a fashionable center.

wife. He was quite awed by the lo
cal splendor.—Philadelphia Ledger.
Calling for William Penn.
The conservatism of the law as It is
practiced in Philadelphia received an
illustration recently in the loud sum
mons by the clerk of the court to Wil
liam Penn, Richard Penn and John
Penn to Appear in court in order that
a certain title to the grantors could be
cleared of an incumbrance.
No one suggested to his honor, the
presiding judge of Common Pleas No.
I, that William Penn had been dead
200 years, and his sons, Richard and
John, nearly as long. There was no
need of such a suggestion. Every one
within hearing of the clerk's voice
knew that it was a vain show and an
empty form that was proceeding be
fore their eyes.
Through the Idle crying of the
names of men two centuries dead the
demands of the law were satisfied and
a title was cleared.—Case and Com
The curse of this life 1b that what
ever is once known can never be un
known. You inhabit a spot, which be
fore you inhabited it is as indifferent
to you as any other spot upon earth,
and when, persuaded by some neces
sity, you think to leave it, you leave
it not; it clings to you, and with mem
ories of things, which in your experi
ence of them, gave no such promise,
revenges your desertion. Time flows
on, places are changed; friends who
were with us are no longer with
us; yet what has been seems yet to

The very thought of the hospital operating table and the

It is quite true that some of these troubles may reach a stage
where an operation is the only resource, but thousands of

Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound. This fact is
attested by the grateful letters they write to us after their
health has been restored.
These Two Women Prove Our Claim.
Cary, Maine. —"l Teel it a duty 1
owe to all suffering women to tell
what Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable
Compound did for me. One year ago
I found myself a terrible sufferer.
I had pains in both sides and such a
soreness 1 could scarcely staighten
up at times. My back ached, I had
no appetite and was so nervous I
could not sleep, then I would be so
tired mornings that I could scarcely
get around. It seemed almost im
possible to move or do a bit of work
and I thought I never would be any
better until I submitted to an opera
tion. I commenced taking Lydia E.
Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound and
soon felt like a new woman. I had
no pains, slept well, bad good appe
tite and was fat and could do almost
all my own work for a family ox
four. I shall always feel that I owe
my good health to your medicine.”
—Mrs. Hayward Sowers, Cary, Me.
Charlotte, N. C—“I was in bad
health for two years, with pains in
both sides and was very nervous. If
I even lifted a chair it would cause
a hemorrhage. I had a growth which
the doctor said was a tumor and I
never would get well unless I had
an operation. A friend advised me
to take Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegeta

I am now enjoying tine health and
am the mother of a nice baby girl.

suffering women.”—Mrs. Rosa Sims,

E. Pinkham’s Vegetable Compound a trial ? You know that
it has saved many others—why should it fail in your case?
For 30 years Lydia E. Pinkham’s Vegetable ,
Compound has been the standard remedy for fe
male ills. No one sick with woman’s ailments /
does justice to herself if she does not try this fa- 1
mous medicine made from roots and herbs, it
has restored so many suffering women to health.
