with a shuddering cry. "Oh, how

It was so cruel, so Inconceivably cruel,
so shameful, and so unjust! It was

with her eyeB searching him. "Why

gothor convulsively. The nails cut into
his palms and an ache which hurt
tugged at his heart. Wentworth's
chamber held momories for him: ho
thought of nights when ho had lain
helpless upon that samo bed and
Enoch had takon care of him In a
lumbering fashion. During those daya
ho had seen tho rugged faco grow wan
from want of sleep; still for htm a
smllo always lit tho stern features.
Suddenly, as tho laBt remnant of an
old scab sloughs off, every fragmont
of hatred, of resentment at Injustice,
of pain and rebellion which for ten
months had been warping his nature
and clouding his llfo fell away from
Merry's heart Tho lovo, tho Implicit
confidence, oven tho boyish depend
enco upon tho older man, came flood
ing back Into his soul like a high tide.
All that had stood between blm and
Wentworth seemed unimportant com
pared with tho vital fact that they
had been nnd still woro friends.
When tho nurso beckoned he stolo
noiselessly across tho floor. Sho point
ed to a chair by tho bedside "Ho
has dozed off," she explained In a low
whisper. "Ho asked for you Just bo
foro ho went to sleep. I told him
you wero coming. Sit hero so that bo
can soo you whon ho wakes up."
Merry dropped into tho chair. Ho
began to sco perfoctly through tho
gloom. Wentworth's grim, gaunt faco
bad startled him for a, mlnuto. Tho
eyelids wero closed, with depths of
shadow bolow them. Tho man's domi
nating noso stood out llko a silhouette
against tho whlto pillow. 'The mus
tache had been shaved away and lines,
chiseled by days and nights of pain,
wrinkled about tho quiet mouth. Merry
sat staring at tho haggard faco with a
dull, tugging hopo In his soul, which
ho could not voice even to Dorcas.
Ho wanted time tlmo enough to tell
Enoch thai tho old enmity was dead,
that the old love was allvo, strength
ened by new tlos. A spasm of pain ran
through the sick man's face, wrinkling
tho pallid forehead and twitching the
lips. Merry looked up at the nurse.
She read tho question in bis eyes.
"No," sho whispered, "he 1b going to
llvo. His brain Is clear now. Ho haa
a great constitution. That was tho
only thing that saved him."
Tho woman had a strong, intelligent
face and hor manner was full of calm
conviction. Sho was not young and
must havo watched over many a bat
tlo between life and death. Sho knew!
Morry sighed with relief and pcaco
of mind, even with a mad throb of
joy. Tho thought of Dorcas and tho
futuro camo with tho conviction that
thero was still tlmo to tako up tho
old bonds of lovo nnd to begin lite
Tho faco upon tho pillow moved and
Enoch's eyes opened slowly. Recog
nition flashed Into them, then a smile
cropt about tho lined mouth.
"Enoch!" Tho young man dropped
on his knees bcsldo tho bed, his fin
gers stolo under tho shcot and caught
In a strong grasp tho hand which he
stand, Enoch, we aro friends friends
thnt nothing can soparato ngaln as
long as life lasts."
Tho wlstfulness of gratitude dimmed
the eyes of tho sick man, "As long atn
llfo lasts! That won't bo a great
whllo, Iioy," he whispered huBklly;
"only now It Is all right and it
seems different I felt llko a coward
a little while ago. You remember that
writing chap who died lately? Ho said

a tono of passlonato conviction. "Look
here, old man, you'ro not going home

or forty years before that homegolng."
Ho turned Imperatively to tho nurse.
"Push back tho curtains, won't you?
Push them away back. There's a glo

Tho woman understood. She ran up
a curtain and flung back the shutters.
The room grew suddenly whlto and
"Therot" cried Merry. "Talk of go

A pathetic eagerness flushed Into
tho eyes of tho man on tho bed. Tho
glaro of the sunshlno showed clearly
tho wanness and ghastly shadows in
the bandaged faco.
"Sho says," tho actor pointed over
his shoulder at tho white-gowned
nurso, "sho says you arc out on the
hlghrond coming back to Btay with
us Indefinitely, you understand,
Enoch? Sho knows. Don't you?" Ho
looked Into tho woman's faco with ar
dont pleading in his eyes.
Sho Bmllcd nnd nodded. She was
tho embodiment of health and vigor.
Hor stalwart body and her wholesome
rosy faco wero pleasant for Blck oyes
to look upon. "Yes, you've como
back," sho said emphatically. "When
tho doctor left nn hour ago ho said we
had pulled you safely around tho cor
ner. Now nil tho Job I havo cut out
for mo is to bco you aro kept quiet and
patient and happy."
"Yob, happy that's tho blggeBt part
of tho prescription," repeated Merry
with a laugh.
Tho sick man looked up. The con
fession in his eyes 'was pathetic "It
seemB ages since I was happy, Boy."
"Well, you're not going to bo al
lowed to think, even to think of past
ages. You ve only to no mere ana
got well. It Is our business a sort of
Job cut out for Dorcas and mo to
keep you happy. See?"
"I soe," whlspored Enoch. The flick
er of a smllo stole Into his face. It
brought peace and a pale, eager hope,
fulness, as if a thought of restitution
and atonement was dawning in the
man's soul. Tho nurse lowered the
curtain and blotted out the radiance
which flooded the room.
"Tho doctor has ordered quiet" "he
whispered, "and sleep as much Bleep
. Merry rose and laid bla band on
Wentworth'B forehead. "You hear her
orders, old man?" He laughed gaily.
"It's no use running full tilt against
tho nursing profession. Each one of
them thinks sho knows It all! But I'm
not going to say 'Good-by.' I mean
to hang around hero from dawn to

she spoke. Tho silk thread had knotted
and she sat disentangling it with her
"As Boon as you are able to travel

Enoch stared out at tho window.
"Who Is 'wo'?" he questioned.

Occasionally during Enoch's conva

common nolseB about tho house with
a feverish anxiety which was half-terror.

staring at a slip of paper ho had drawn
from the yellow envelope. "You re

of Wentworth's name and his own

paper with slow deliberation, tearing
It across nnd across until it was re

took it without a word and slipped

Yale man's theory explained it"
"What waB his theory?"
Wentworth paused for a minute with
a haunted look in hlB eyeB. "Ho claims

world looks on him not as au Admir
