There wns a fitcp on the stairs. Vor
onlca listened. She had grown more
womanly In these last four yearB, nnd
she looked more thoughtful. Sorrow,
the great master, had taught her
many things. Now alio did not look
unhappy, but eager nnd anxious. Sho
evidently recognized tho footsteps on
tho stnlrs, and It did not bring her
any pleasure. Sho was shrinking to
gether In tho chair with tho child
when tho door opened to her cnll
"Como In!" nnd Hutchinson entered.
"Good afternoon," sho said, but
showed no pleasuro at tho sight of
him. "How did you find mo out?"
"How? It Is always easy to find
ny ono when you hnvo a mind to,
and when you have any sense In
your head!" Ho scanned Veronica's
faco ub ho spoke, and noticed that
ihe flushed slightly. "I Baw you go
Into a music shop, and I followed you
fcomo tho other day, and I mado n

"Whnt do you want of mo?" asked
Veronica, rather hopelessly.
"My dear girl" Hutchinson spoke
airily "my dear girl, why could you
not have confided In your father? It
would have saved you a great deal
If you had."
"You are not my father," said Ver
onica quietly, "you told mo so your
solf." "Why quarrel about an expression?
I nm the man who brought you up.
Veronica, why did you not tell mo
that you had married Alan Mackenzie
and that this Is his child?"
Veronlcn gavo a great start. Sho
know why sho had not mentioned
Alan's name to him. Sho knew of
tho hatred that Hutchinson hnd for
him, nnd even now sho did not know
what to say. "How do you know?"
die asked at last. "Who told you?"
"Ho told mo himself," said the
nan, watching tho agitation that
Veronica betrayed. "I should not
anvo known unle33."
"When did ho toll you?" sho nsked,
her lips almost refusing to utter a
"About two months ngo."
Veronica sprang up. "Ho Is here,
In London. Two months ngo! Oh,
lake mo to him! Let mo seo him at
once! Why did you not tell mo bo
fore?" "How could I?" tho man said dry
ly. "1 tell you you should have had
more confidence. I did not know you
wero his wife."
"How was ho looking?" cried Vcr-

Did he speak of mo two months ngo?
I think wo shall dlu of happiness
when wo coiuu together ugaln!"
"No doubt," said Hutchinson. "Does
ho know of the boy?"
"No. Tho boy was born flvo months
after tho shipwreck. I have told you
I was so 111 after the wreck that I lost
my reason for a time."
"Pity," said Hutchinson, reflective
ly, "that when you told mo so much
you did not tell me all."
Veronica did not answer. Something
In tho man's tono awakened her sus
picions. "Aro you sure," sho nsked,
after a llttlo silence, "that you do
uot want to hurt him?"
"Why should 1?" asked Hutchin
son, "no, wnat l want to uo is to
mnko money out of him. Ho will not
bo nblo to deny mo anything when I
restore him his wlfo nnd child."
That sounded possible. Veronica
smiled, and let herself bo happy In
tho thought that whnt sho had so
longed for nnd worked for for years
wns about to como to pass.
"My darling, my darling!" she mur
mured. Hutchinson looked nt her
"You seem fond of him," ho said.
Sho gave a glanco of contempt nt tho
way ho oxpressed himself. Sho caught

Alan, you uro going to your father
Hutchinson was thinking. Ho. had
n difficult tnsk beforo him, lit had
allowed Alan to get married, and hnd
given him some weeks of happiness
beroro ho begnn his work of destruc
tion; now ho hnd to ninltc suro of
Veronica. Ho would have Infinitely
hnvo preferred n woman who would
bavo blustered, and hnvo sworn that
sho would havo her rights; but Ver
onica was tho sort of woman who
would shrink nwny nnd bo lost to tho
world rather thnn hurt tho man sho
lovoU. Ho had shrewdness enough to
sco that tho girl would say that It wns
tho only way to net, nnd that sho
would sacrlflco both tho child nnd
herself; thcrcforo It wns Imperatively
nccessnry that sho should know noth
ing of Alnn's marriage, of his love for
nnotiier woman. Thnt musl como to
her ns a surprise. Sho must bo led to
expect that Alan was longing for hor,
nnd would bo overjoyed to seo her
ngnln; then would bo his, Hutchin
son's, opportunity. Ho knew men so
well that he fancied they must bo nil
alike. Alnn would not glvo up Joyce
ho felt suro of that; then ho must
bo made to pny for his silence. He
must feel thnt he, Hutchinson, could
hold tho sword over his head, that ho
could let It fall at any moment. Ho
hnd rubbed his hands at tho publicity
of the marriage. Alan Mackenzie
would never glvo up his beautiful
wife. Veronica would havo to bo nald
off. Joyce would not bo Alan's law
ful wife. It was going to be n life
of misery for the young man, and nt
tho end there would bo Hutchinson's
dnggor for his heart. 13 ut the whole
thing needed careful handling, nnd
Hutchinson felt thnt ho wns tho man
undoubtedly who could .handle It care
fully. Even If nt tho end Veronlcn
refused, us wns possible, to come for
ward and make Alan unhnppy, never
theless ho would huvo to pay for his
"Ho lives In n nlco llttlo house In
tho country," Hutchinson said at
last. "I will glvo you tho address.
You had better go by train. Hnvo
you any money?"
"Yes," Bald Veronica. "I wns paid
for my lessons yesterday. I must
wrlto to her when I havo Been Alnn
ngnln. Ho mny not wish mo to go on
giving lessons." But nil tho tlmo sho
spoko hor faco was transflgurcd. The
feeling thnt soon her weary time of
probation would bo over wns strong
within her. Sho looked with pride nt
tho beautiful boy, whom sho still held
In her nrms. "Will not his fnthcr be
proud of him?" sho usked, longing
for a llttlo human sympathy, "He Is
handsome, Is he not?"
"Oh, yes, he's n good-looking child,
although I nm no Judge," said tho
man. In his head ho was revolving
plans. "I would not go strntght up to
tho house If I were you," ho said.
"Tho servants might not understand
It. You wnlt for him ut the lodge
"Very well," said Veronica, docile
as always. She could not guess thnt
Hutchinson's ono fenr wns lest sho
should meet Joyco and so spoil his
wholo plnn. Ho hnd looked Into
Joyce's faco as sho was walking with
Alan one duy, nnd ho could see Inno
cence nnd purity written upon It.
Joyco was not tho womnn to consent
to tho paying ofT of the Arst wife.
And so It wna decided that Veronlcn
should go down to Summorhnyo and
await the coming of Alan. It was n
lovely day In early July, when she
went down, with that precious posses
sion, her boy, hugged closo to her
heart. The sun was shining nnd tho
sky blue, tho corn wna waving In tho
fields; nnd It was under tho shado of
u leafy trco that Veronlcn awaited tho
coming of tho man sho loved. Hutch
inson had discovered what train ho
usually came by. It was so lmportnnt
thnt Veronica should see him nlono!
And sat there quietly straining hor
her enrs for tho sound of his foot
steps. It took her back to her girlish
days at La Paz, when sho had often
watched for him ns she was doing
now. Truly thero hnd been no years
of Reparation from him, and no boy
beside her. As the tlmo drew nenrcr
tho strain grow almost too Intense.
Sho put her hand over her heart so as
to stop Its wild beating, nnd the rich
color thnt generally flooded her cheeks
left hor, nnd alio was palo. And sud
denly she heard footstops In tho field
that wns boforo her manly footsteps,
which sho had not heard for four
years, but which sho knew at once.
Then a figuro vaulted over the Btllo
nnd Alan stood beforo her.
Sho tottered to her feet, holding out
tho child. Ho looked nt her wildly
nnd gavo a great cry, as it body and
bouI wero being rent asunder. "Ver
onica! O God! O God!"
Ho fell backwards against tho Btllo,
covering his faco with his hands, as If
to shut out tho sight of a great horror.
Sho stood trombllng beforo him, push
ing her child In front of her, as If she
wanted to obliterate herself nnd to ob
triulo tho child; but ho stood there,
Blinking and shivering, moaning at
Intervals. "Veronica! 0 God! 0 God!"
It was sho who spoke Arst; he could
not And words, or anything but tho
piteous moan, nnd hor volco wns
touching In exquisite joy, "Yes, Alan,
it Is I, saved from tho sea, my dearest.
And hero hero Is our child. Aro you
not pleased? Toll mo you nro pleased,
for I have longed so to seo your dear
faco ngnln I I havo longed so to hear
your volco I cannot bollove It has
como at last!"
Sho camo quite near to htm, ad
vancing ns sho spoko. It seemed ns
If sho wero longing for him to un
cover his face, to tako hor Into his
"Alan," sho cried, "oh, my darling,
nro you not glnd to sec mo?"
Thero was still no doubt In her
mind. 8ho thought thnt tho Joy of
seeing her hnd been too great, nnd
that ho was trying to recover from
tho shock. Sho hnd no doubt, poor
soul, nt nil, Ho loved her, thcrcforo
her coming to him must bo Inexpres
Then Alan uncovered his haggard
faco. "Glad? No! It hns ruined my
life!" ho cried brutally. But for tho
moment ho could think of nothing but
Joyco his Joyce," wUH whom life had
begun so Joyfully, ami whoBo heart ho
must now break, as his own had been
bioken. "I wish I were dead!" ho
said, with n sob.
"Alnn!" Tho nngulsh in hor volco
matched his. "Is that what you havo
to Bay to mo, your wife, the mother
of your child, who has undergone
all hardships, and who has Just lived
on becnuse you were In tho world?
Oh, Alnn, If you do not want me, I
had bettor go."
Sho turned, wnlktng unsteadily,
holding her child's hand tightly. And
then a great temptation assailed Alan
Mackenzie Tho temptntion to let
her go, to let her bo lost to him, to
say nothing to Joyco; but to go on
as If tho dny's work hud never been.
And then ho saw In a flash what his
life would be. How every moment of
happiness with Joyco would huvo its
corresponding moment of bitterness
when ho was nlono; how ho must llvo
a double life, always on tho brink of
detection. Not worse, perhaps, that
tho llfo parted from Joyco; but then
he would bo nn honest man, and not n
traitor. He put his temptation away
from him, thanking God that he could
do so, knowing thnt Joyce would not
love a man who was dishonorable. So
beforo Veronica had stitggeerd n dozen
steps nwny ho called to her hoarsely
to como back. Sho turned nt once,
obedient as ulwnys, nnd for a mo
ment he bated himself for his brutal
ity to so gentle a woman. Hor tears
wero falling down the beautiful face.
Sho looked up nt him with the old
look of faithful love, still pushing
tho child townrds him.
"Yes," Bho snld, questioning him,
"what Is It, Alan?"
"I am married," ho
nnd hoarsely, thinking it best to toll
hor nt ouco. "I thought you wero
dead. I heard nothing from you since
I left you; It Is four years ago. They
told mo all on board wero drowned,
nnd I could hear nothing, of you.
Whnt wonder then I thought you
wero dead? And so I married, Ver
onlcn I. am married now!"
And then for a long tlmo there was
silence between them.
