himself. He glanced down the crowd
ed, lighted house to the big glnss
doors; lie glanced about him nt his col
Iougues, Indifferent or Interested; then
surreptitiously his fingers strayed to
his waistcoat pocket.
Usually ho curried his morphia tab
loids with him, but today by a lapse
of memory ho had left them nt home.
Ho knew this, nevertheless he contin
ued to search, while tho need of tho
drug rushed through him with u sense
of physical sickness. Ho lost hold on
the business of the house; unconscious
ly ho half rose from his seat.
The man next him looked up. "Hold
your ground, Chllcote'," ho said. "Ray
forth Is drying up."
With a wave or relief Chllcote drop
ped back Into bis place. Whatever the
confusion in his mind It wiih evident
ly not obvious In his race.
Rayforth resumed his seat, there was
the usual slight stir and pause; then
Salett, tho member lor Halchester. rose.
With Salett's flr.U words Chilcote's
hand again sought bis pocket, and
again his eyes strayed toward the
doors, but I'raide's erect head and st.iT
back Just in front of him held him
quiet. Witli an effort lie pulled out
his notes and smoothed them nervous
ly; but, though Ills gaze was llxcd on
the pages, not a lino of Itlesslngton's
clear writing reached his mind. He
glanced at tho face of the speaker,
then at the faces on the treasury
bench, then once more he leaned back
in ids seat.
The man beside blm saw the move
ment. "Funking the dry dock?" he
"No" Chllcote turned to blm sud
denly "but I reel beastly have folt
beastly for weeks."
The other looked at him more close
ly. "Anything wrongV" lie asked. It
was a novel experience to be confided
In by Chllcote.
"Oil, It's the grind the infernal
grind." As ho said It It seemed to
him suddenly that his strength gave
way. He forgot his companion, luN
position, everything except the urgent
Instinct that filled mind and body.
.Scarcely knowing what he did he rose
and -leaned forward to whisper In
Fraldo was seen to turn, his thin
face Interested and concerned, then he
was soon to nod ouce or twice lu ac
quiescence, and a moment later Chll
cote stepped quietly out of his place.
One or two men spoke to him as he
hurried rrom the house, but he shook
them off almost uncivilly, and, making
for the nearest exit, hailed a cab.
Tho drive to Grosvenor square was a
misery. Time arter time ho changed
from one comer of tho cab to the other,
lis acute Internal pains prolonged by
every delay and Increased by every
motion. At hist, weak In all bis limbs,
he stepped rrom the vehicle at his own
Entering the house, he Instantly
mounted tho stairs and passed to his
own rooms. Opening the bedroom
door, he peered In cautiously, then
pushed the door wide. Tho light had
been switched on, but the room was
empty. Willi a nervous excitement
scarcely to bo kept in check, ho enter
ed, shut and locked the door, then mov
ed to the wardrobe and, opening It,
drew the tube of tabloids from the
Ills hand shook violently as ho car
ried tho tube to the table. Tho strain
of tho day, tho anxiety of tho past
hours, with their final failure, had
found sudden expression. Mixing a
larger dose than any ho had before al
lowed himself, ho swallowed It hastily
and, walking across tho room, threw
himself, fully dressed, upon tho bed.

Facing the railed In grass plot of Its '
little court stood the house In which i
John Loiler had his rooms. Taken at
a first glanco tho house had tho desert- !
cd air of an office, Inhabited only In
the early hours, but as night fell lights
would be seen to show out, first on one
floor, then on another faint, human
beacons unconsciously slgnnllng each
other. Tho rooms Loder Inhabited I
wero on tho highest floor, and from I
their windows ono might gaze philo
sophically on the troetons. forcottlnc
the uneven pavement and (lie worn '
railing that hemmed them around. In
tho landing outside tho rooms his inuiio
appeared above his door, but tho paint
had been soiled by time and the letters
for the most part reduced to shadows,
so that, taken lu conjunction with tho
auut stnlrcaso and baro walls, tho
place hud a cheerless look.
Inside, however, the effect was some
what mitigated. The room on the right
hand as ono entered tho small passago
that served as ball was of fair size,
though low celled. Tho paint of tho
wall paneling, llko tho name abovo tho
outer jdoor, had long ngo boon worn to
fi dirty and nondescript hue, and tho
floor was Innocent of carpet. Yet In
tho middle of the room stood a fine old
Cromwell tabic, nnd on tho plain deal
bookshelves and along tho mantel
piece wero soma vnluablo books polit
ical and historical. There woro no cur
tains on the windows and a common
reading lamp with a green shade stood
on u desk. It was the room of a man
wit'i few hobbles and no pleasure-,
who existed because he was alive and
worked because he must.
Three nights after the great fog John
Loder sat by his desk lu the light of
tho green shaded lamp. Tho remains
of a very frugal supper stood on tho
center tnble, and In the grate a small
and economical looking firo was burn
big. Having written for close on two
hours, he pushed back his chair und
stretched his cramped fingers. Then
he ynvned, rose and slowly walked
across the room. Reaching the mantel
piece ho took a pipe from the pipe rack
and some tobacco from the Jar that
stood behind the books. Ills face
looked tired and a little worn, as Is
common with men who have worked
long at an uncongenial task. Shredding
the tobacco between his hands ho
slowly filled tho pipe, then lighted It
from tho fire with u spill of twisted
Almost at tho moment that lie ap
plied the light the sound of steps
mounting the uuenrpoted stairs outside
carght his attention and he raised his
head to listen.
Presently the steps halted and he
heard a match struck. The stranger
was evidently uncertain of his whero
obouts. Then the steps moved forward
again and paused.
An expression of surprise crossed
Loder's face and ho laid down his pipe.
As the visitor knocked he walked
quietly ncro-ts the room and opened tho
Tho passage outside was dark and
the newcomer drew back before the
light from the room.
"Mr. Loder?" be bo'jnn Interroga
tively. Then all nt once be laughed In
embarrassed apology. "Forgive me."
ho said. "The light rather dazzled me.
I didn't realize who it was."
Loder recognized the voice as belong
ing to Ids acquaintance of the fog.
"Oh. It's you!" lie snld. "Won't you
come In?" His voice wns a little cold.
This sudden resurrection left him sur
prised, and not quite pleasantly sur
prised. He wnlked back to tho fire
place, followed by bis guest.
Tho guest seemed nervous nnd agi
tated. "I must apologize for the hour
of my visit," he said. "My my tlmo la
not quite my own."
Loder waved Ids hand. "Whoso time
is his own?" bo said.
Chllcote, encouraged by the remark,
drew nearer to the lire. Until this mo
ment he bad refrained from looking di
rectly nt his host. Now, however, ho
raised his eyes, and, despite his prepa
ration, hu recoiled unavoidably beforo
the extraordinary resemblance. Seen
here, in the casual surroundings of a
badly furnished nnd crudely lighted
room, it was even more nstoundlng
thnn It had been In tho mystery of the
"Forgive me," ho said again. "It Is
physical, purely physical. I am bowled
over against my will."
Loder smiled. Tho slight contempt
that Chllcote had first Inspired roso
ngaln, nnd with It n second feeling less
euslly defined. Tho mnn seemed so un
stable, so Incapable, yet so grotesquely
suggestive to himself.
"The likeness Is rather overwhelm
ing," he said, "but not heavy enough to
sink under. Come nearer the fire. What
brought you here? Curiosity?" There
wus a wooden armchair by tho fire
place. Ho indicated It with a wave of
the baud, then turned and took up bis
Chllcote, watching him furtively,
obeyed the gesture and sat down.
"It Is extraordinary!" ho said, as If
unable to dismiss the subject "It It
Is quite extraordinary I"
The other glanced round. "Let's drop
it," ho said. "It's so confoundedly ob
vious." Then his tone changed. "Won't
you smoke?" ho asked.
"Thanks." Chllcote began to fumblo
for his cigarettes.
But his host forestalled blm. Taking
a box from the mantelpiece, ho held It
".My ono extravagance!" he said Iron
ically. "My resources bind mo to one;
and 1 think I have mado a wlso selec
tion. It Is about the only vlco wo
haven't to pay for six times over." Ho
glanced sharply at tho face so absurdly
like his own, then, lighting a fresh
spill, offered his guest a light.
