because It was forgotten.
Enid, the" conspirator, .waited until
tho pair In the dogcart were out of

at the back of the cottage where Brand
protended to be busily engaged In com

Obviously Knitl was determined that

When he was alone he did not re
sume his tiisk. In the next room, sepa
rated from him only by a brick wall,
was his wife. A wall! Why should
there always bo a wall between them?
It was not of bis building. Had she
rantlc it Impassable during. the long
years? And what would bo tho out
come now that Constance was In dally
communion with her mother? The doc
tor in kindly Ignorance bad told him
that Mrs. Vanslttart was convalescent
anil would be able to travel In a few
days. In response to a question tho
doctor added that tho lady herself
asked when she might be moved.
What was her plan? Mr. Traill that
dliy had written lilm a sympathetic lot
tor, mentioning the fact that Mrs. Van
slttart had voluntarily rescinded her
promise to marry him and indeed,
Judged by the light of present knowl
edge, had determined on that course
since sho llrst knew that her former
uusbnnd was living.
Suddenly Ltrnntl pushed back Ills

imrd'B absence, Enid's unensy wrlg-
j,'llug at the door, were all parts of an
ordered plan. Ho was to bo given an
opportunity of seeing bis wife and dis
entangling the twisted strands of
twenty years. Ho rose Impatiently aud
paced tho room quietly withal lest tho
woman in tho next room bhould hear
him. A decision had been forced on
him. He could shirk It no longer.
"Pyno. has contrived tills," ho mut
tered. "Uo thinks ho can seo more
clearly Into the future thau a man
twice bis age. Knld Is In tho plot too.
And Connie! No, not Connie. Dear
heart! She is worn with anxiety, yet
she has never onco mentioned her

Hack and forth ho walked, wrestling
with tho problem. Seo his wlfo bo

Was It advlsablo In her present stnto

Tyno evidently thought so. And tho
doctor! Good heavens! Was the doctor

"Mary," ho said, "ask Mrs. Vanslt

There; It was done.
Mary, rosy cheeked anil soft of

matronly eye, knocked at tho door of

He walked toward her and held out
his hand. Her Illness bad brought out
certain resemblances to Constance.
She looked younger, as some women
do look after Illness. Surely he could
not, even had he harbored the thought,
use cruel words to this wan. stricken
woman, the wife whom bo had loved
and for whom he had suffered.
"Nanette," he said, with utmost gen
tleness, "do not bo distressed. Indeed
there Js no reason why our mooting
should bo painful. It Is better Unit we
should have a quiet talk than that we
should part again In anger and bitter
ness." She caught bis band In both of hers.
Still she snltl nothing. Her large eyes
gazed up at him as if she sought to
read in bis face the thoughts he might
not utter, the memories ho. might not
recall. Her lips distended. He saw her
mouth twitching at tlio corners.
"Nanette," he said again, though bis
voice was not well under control nnd
something rose In his tbroat and stilled
him, "I appeal to you not to give way
to to emotion. You may become ill
again aud I would never forgive my
self." Still clinging to bis hand, she sank on
her knees by bis side. But there was
no wild burst of tears. Her sorrow
was too deep for such kindly aid.
"Stephen," sho whispered faintly, "I
cannot ask you to forget, but you bavo
spoken of forglveuess. Can you for

her. She clung to him with such en
