Meg wns gone. Tho ilro waB now
burning low; the lnmp, with its big
red shade, made a clrclo of light In tho
distant comer; all the rest of the room
was dim. I sat In my low chair beside
the Are and waited for John to come.
He came at last. Ife stopped to hang
up his hat and great-coat in the hall,
then camo briskly toward the drawing-room.
"Kitty! All in tho dark!" ho ex
claimed, as ho oponed tho door. Ho
camo across tho room, bent down nnd
kissed me, then stood before tho ilro,
holding out his hands to warm them.
"John," I said In my coldest, most
steady tone, determined to speak Quito
carelessly, "there Is a letter for you
from Madame Arnnud. Hero it Is."
Ho took it eagerly. I oponed a book
and pretended to bo deeply absorbed
In it. John carried his letter across
tho room toward tho lamp.
Ho read It without making any com
ment. I heard him turn to tho ilrst
pago to read It through ugaln; htj
stood still for many minutes, tho letter
In his hand, and seemed to bo lost In
thought. Tho dinner-boll rang while
he was standing there. I put down my
book and roso slowly from my seat.
Thon John sighed, folded his letter,
nnd enmo towards mo.
"Kitty, I am going out," ho said.
I did not reply for n moment; my
heart felt dead within me. I could not
oven feel angry; I was too heart-sick
with misery, with heirless, hopeless,
"To Mndamo Arnaud's?" I asked.
And tho question was asked In tho
most level tone, without passion, al
most without Interest in the answer.
"Yes, I am sorry to leavo you again,

I smiled a hard, mirthless , llttlo

I mennt tho speech to bo biting In lta
sarcasm. My volco spoilt tho speech
a llttlo by faltering. John wns looking
nt tuo with such a grave glanco that
my eyes fell.
He did not nnswer me. Ho drow on
his thick gloves slowly, looking
thoughtfully away from mo down Into
tho fire; then ho Blghcd, kissed mo
In n gravo way, nnd went.
I heard tho street door phut, thon
I sat down In a hopeless attltudo upon
tho rug. hurled my faco In my hands,
and burst into tears.
Seven o'clock, eight o'clock, nlno
o'clock struck. Tho Ilro hnd burnt

room hnd grown cold. Still I snt In

down upon my hnnds and tried to

that thought was too pitiful; It mado

John's life must be n bondngo; ho had

perhaps ho had never realized before

mon with him, how young 1 waB, how
foolish, how dull tho constant com
panionship of a girl of seventeen must
bo. And again my tears flowed fast
for John's sorrow or for tho pnthos of
my own part therein.
I was numb with cold, dnzed with
weeping, when nt laBt I roso from tho

slowly up tho lonely path. Two figures
wero advancing In tho darkness; I
saw them dimly outlined, but did not
heed them. I only awoke, to nny in

a woman's choking sob.
"I cannot bear It!" said a voice a
woman's voice, tremulous, broken.
"It is too hard I cannot boar It! For

Present Flchtlnc Torre nt the Nation
The annual report of Adjutant Gen
eral Corbln has been made public.
Aside from the strictly technical recit
al of ull the details of a busy year In
military life, the report give's much In
formation of an Interesting character
and submits numerous recommenda
tions for the betterment of the service.
General Corbln sums up the military
forces now In the service of tho United
Regular army, 01,530; volunteers, nt,
571; total, 09,100. Tho distribution of

Rico, 3,300; Cuba, 11,187; Philippines
82,31.1, curoute to Philippines, 17,099;
Alaskn, 41D. Hawaiian islands, 400.
It Is expected that by December 1
next all tho Infantry regiments, U. H.
V., will have sailed for tho Philippine
islands. These with the troops now
there will give a total strength of
2,117 officers and 03,003 enllsled men
(an aggregate of 0,"i,7M.)
Tho service of many of the troops
after their enlistments had expired

that "each officer of thu several volun
teer organizations uud each enlisted

Philippines nfter the second of March,
1899, until honorably discharged, be
awarded u suitably imerihed medal.''
