Lyndon smiled, though rather sadly.
'I am afraid you will have to go on

ho said. M)o you know, strange as It

After a short Interval ho came back

whispered Mildred, tremulously.

It Is now held by tho New York
Hoard of Health that pneumonia has
permanently displaced consumption ua
the leading cause of death In that city.
In-tho past year the excess of deaths
from pneumonia over thoso by con
sumption was greater than ever beforo.
Influenza has brought this about.
Prior to 1890 consumption had always
been tho chief causo of mortality, but
Inlluenzn, which eaRlly runs Into tho

domesticated In this country. Chica

Denzll did not appear to recover
quite so rapidly as had been at first
confidently expected, the Inward in
juries he had received though slight
tolling on him more seriously than
the doctors had anticipated.
Mrs. Younge had been telegraphed
for on tho evening of the accident, and
had arrived at King's Abbott early
tho following morning, having elected
to travel all night rather than enduro
tho agonies of suspense, though the
telegram had been very reassuring.
Tho third day showed their patient
apparently better than on the preced
ing one. There had been more decided
symptoms of amendment, and ho had
gono through tho dressing of his
wounds with wonderful composure and
stoicism. Hut toward evening ho grew
depressed and Irritable, and evinced
n faint Inclination to wander; where
upon the doctor looked grao, shook
his head and mndo certain chnuges in
his medicine but all io no purpose.
Tho next day he was in a raging fovcr.
Tho fifth day afier tho fever first
declared Itself Lady Caroline, having
Insisted on the poor mother's lying
down for nn hour or two, was sitting
In DenzH's loom as tho time wore on
toward evening. Bending over his bed.
sho noticed a certain change In his
"What Is It?" she asked, tenderly.
"Mildred." ho whispered, with deep
entreaty In his tone, and holding out
"I am not Mildred, dear Denzll,"
said Lady Caroline, thinking that he
still raved; but he said:
"I know you are not." qulto distinct
ly; anil then again, "I want her why
does she never come to me?"
Poor Lady Caroline was greatly per
plexed; she knew not what to do. Had
tilings been different she would have
followed the dictates of her own kind
heart and sent for Mildred on the spot;
but, ns It was, she remembered former
scenes and Lyndon'a recent sad do
pailuro and did not caro to take tho
responsibility on herself of bringing
her daughter anil Denzll together.
"Mildred. Mildred!" called tho sick
man, impatiently: and then tho littlo
ray of reason that had come to him In
connection with her face vanished, and
he wandered off once more into tho tci
rlble feverlnnd. bearing with him tho
name of her ho loved.
For two houis ho lay thus, calling,
Kmiotlnies wildly, sometimes feobly,
hut always for her, until his loving
nurse's heart was smitten to thn core.
At length camo Stubber, tho family
doctor, and, seeing Denzll In this state,
ho regarded him silently for several

cision, "Miss Trevanlon must bo Bent

Sho camo without a moment's delay,
and, even as her foot crossed tlio
threshold of the door, a midden sllenco
fell on Denzll. He turned tho fover

beautiful eyes lit up with passltm.ito
expectation and fond hopo.
Slowly and with hesitation Mildred
advanced to the sldo of tho be I, and
then Lady Caroline went over Jto tho
Slubber, stnndlng with their backs to
the bed, nnd their faces turned to tho
chilly outer world, could toll nothing.
When at length they returned to tho
bed they found Mildred pale and trem

other down her checks In rapid suc
cession, which sho hastily brushed
nwny as they drow nearer her, h"r
hand tightly clasped In DenzH's. 11"

with the poor Injured fingers, nud hnd

Ho was I'lilte sane now. Ills face,
slightly Hushed, was looking upward;
his eyes, glad nnd happy, wero fixed
on hers, while she answered back the
gaze, forgetful of all else but that ho
lay before her sick, It might be, unto
"Denzll, you are exciting yourself,"
said Iaily Caroline, nervously.
"No, I am not," answered Denzll, his
voice clear and dlctlnct, but without
removing his eyes from Mildred's;
"leave me for a moment."
Ho waved them back Impatiently to
the window, and neither Lady Caroline
nor the doctor could bring themselves
to disobey the command.
Hut Slubber, who was becoming seri
ously uneasy about his patient, glanc
ing round at him cautiously and sur
reptitiously, saw what followed. He
said that when ho and Lady Caroline
hnd again withdrawn, Denzll looked
nt Miss Trevanlon, and that then Miss
Trevanlon stooped and kissed him, not
once, but twice.
This was what Stubbor said, but he
also added that It was his firm belief
that sho did It out of pure humanity
and nothing more. When two minutes
later, ho again approached Younge, he
found that Mildred had disappeared,
and that Denzll was lying perfectly
composed, his faco turned toward the
half-open door. He sighed heavily but
contentedly, nnd then came back to tho
realities of llfo.
"Doctor Stubbor," said he, "do you
know that I am better?"
"Timo will tell." answered tho littlo
doctor, sontentlously; "and now you
must go to sleep If you wish to keep
In thnt much-to-be-deslred condition.

smiling; "that keeps her away. Sho

to resort to her book.
