Malinda arrived at the decision
abruptly; she would go home that
night. Jack Cottrell's declaration of
love the night before had, presumably,
been the eye-opener to her position;
in reality it was the climax of grad
She had been living in a flcltlous at
mosphere that dally was growing
more flat and intolerable to her sensi
tively constructed temperament. At
first the open prominence and success
she had achieved in her work bad ex
hilarated her; now she was beginning
to suffer the inevitable depression of
the aftermath. . ' ' : '
. Yes, she would leave New York
(and her career) thaMkight To be
exact,, she would take the seven
o'clock tTaln that wqfdd put her In
her home town at Ave a- the morning.
At first she thought , oil telegraphing;
then she decided to surprise them all.
How would they receive her? She
had . deliberately gone against her
family's wishes In this move, and re
fused stubbornly,' during the months
that followed, to listen to their persua
sions to return home.
And Billy? Had she ceased alto
gether to occupy a place In his
thoughts? For a time he had written
to her regularly, until only an occa
sional line found Its way to her ad
dress, and by and by did not come at
all. Malinda sighed as she packed
her trunk with trembling fingers, and
every little while paused to dash the
mist from her eyes.
Promptly at 6:45 she bought her
ticket and boarded the train. She
spent a restless night, and reached
her destination more nervous and de
pressed than she cared to admit, even
to herself. But as she quitted the
stuffy car and walked swiftly down
the avenue toward her old home, she
felt the heaviness lift magically from
her feet, and the buoyant blood begin
to pulse through her veins.
Avondale was sparkling in the pale,
pink dawn. On every side, the rose
gardens were languid with bloom, and'
the verandas hung with curtains of
wistaria. Malinda paused a second
with her hand on the gate latch, a
swarm of uncontrollable emotions sud
denly upon her. But she calmed her
self in a moment, and passed through
into the wide, shell path that curled
itself picturesquely among the flower
beds, up to a short flight of stone
She ran quickly up to the door, and
fumbled in her bag for her latch key.
The high, paneled door yielded In
stantly, swinging back on noiseless
hinges under her light touch.
Inside, everything looked familiar
enough. The same highly polished
floors gave back her Image as she
glanced down; there lay ttte Identical
rich old rugs of oriental patterns, scat
tered about among the antique chairs;
the self-same masterpiece.' hung sus
pended from the frescoed; walls; the
statuary stood Just where,' it had
stood on the night she went away.
With a deep-drawn - breath that
sounded surprisingly like a sigh . of
relief in her own ears, she threw her
self into a chair to collect her tumultu
ous thoughts before proceeding to her
After all, she reflected, it was a
whole lot better to be at home home,
with her own people than to be
"sticking it out" alone among strang
ers, whatever the glory and profit.
She was one of the few who had made
the venture a winning one; yet had
she been repaid for all she had missed,
in the intervening time? Strange she
had been so utterly unconscious of the
"aching .void" until now in the flush
of joy over her homecoming. And
again she began to torment herself
with wondering whether the trium
phant results she was bringing home
to her parents would In any measure
compensate for her obstinacy.
Suddenly a whole regiment . of
clocks from here, there and every
where began to strike six, and innum
erable whistles shrieked the hour in
various notes of warning. : . I
Malinda started up in alarm, and,
quietly crossing the ' length of the ;
hallway, moved with half-hesitant
steps up the deep, carved and carpet-'
ed stairway. The door of her sitting
room stood ajar, and she entered
noiselessly, depositing her bag and
parasol on the familiar, spider legged
table that held the student lamp. .
For the moment a rush of feeling
dimmed her eyes so that she could
not see, but she pulled herself togeth
er quietly and glanced critically about
the room, noting, with a little heart
throb, that nothing, apparently, had
been disturbed. Everything was Just
as she had left it every picture and
book. She bent toward the reading
table with a swift rise and ebb of
color. Her own photograph, the one
she had given Billy Mowbray two
years ago! He had, then, ceased to
take even a friendly interest in her
and gone so far as to send her pic
ture back home without a line to
her. And then It came over her with
a rush why she had suddenly real
ized the emptiness of her life in New
York; why she had come home and
broken everything up at Its very zen
ith. And now! A quick, mad desire
to turn and slip away, out of the
house, back to her work, took posses
sion of her. Involuntarily, she picked
up her parasol and bag and turned
toward the door. But the sound of 'a
footstep in the adjoining room, her
'ifidroora, caused her to stop short.
The sight of a .half-smoked cigar ly
ing on the table caught her attention
transiently. Her father! He must!
have cared, very much, indeed about:
his wayward girl, she mused, to be'
coming perhaps living in her own'
roomsi A little sob caught in her,
throat, and she sank into a chair. It
was out of the question to think of go-;
ing back now after what she had dis
A second later the door at her back
was pushed softly open and some one
came in. Malinda bit her lips hard:
for self-mastery. Then a voice that!
sent the blood tingling to her temples
spoke her name. . .
"Miss Lasslter!" !
The girl was on her feet In an In
stant, pale, embarrassed, bewildered.!
She essayed to speak, but the wori
smothered on her lips. '
"I'm awfully sorry," began Mow-;
bray, apologetically, "but I thought'
you knew." . ' r " !
Malinda was regarding him dazedly,'
a horrible fear knocking -at her heart.)
It had been almost a month since she
had heard from home; could It be!
possible that that anything had hap-i
pened? The tears rushed bllndinglri
to her eyes, and she staggered. j
But Mowbray steadied her and
pushed her gently back Into the chair.;
"You mustn't," cried the girl, chok-l
Ing' down a sob; ""don't you' see? I
can't stay here not" another' minute! j
But my mother and father what has!
become of them?" There was traglo
appeal in her voice and eyes.
"They are perfectly safe and well:
I can assure you of that much. Miss
Malinda. As soon as it is practicable
I shall send you to them In my car.
From present Indications I presume
your father's misfortune is unknown
to you. It happens that he speculated;
heavily and lost; but not everything.!
However, It became necessary fori
this property to be disposed of. An
almost despaired-of lift from fortune'
made me independent, and I bought1
it in." I
When he finished talking Malinda,
was crying softly, the tears slipping!
in shining little rivers down her,
cheeks and dropping unheeded on her,,
hands. ' I
"When I learned that the place was
for Bale," proceeded Mowbray after a'
pause, "I resolved to have it at any
cost. It seemed like well, like being
nearer to you, somehow, If you do not
mind my saying it." j
' Malinda's tears ceased, suddenly.:
"If it hadr to be anybody," she said In,
a low tone, "I would rather It were
you." . ' A: " j
Something in her voice, In her man-'
ner, and more than all in the deter
mined avoidance of his eyes, made
Mowbray suddenly bold. He bent
swiftly and gathered her little cold
hands Into his warm palme.
"Malinda," he began eagerly, "let
me tell you everything, now won't
you? It Isn't the time, nor the place,
perhaps, conventionally speaking, but,
after what I've suffered the past year,
I can't let you get away from me
again without hearing what I have to
say. I think you must have known
always, dear, that I loved you, didn't
you? And you know, too, that It was
because you were rich and I was poor,
that my lips were sealed.' But I was
working night and day, working as no
man ever worked before for none
ever had so sweet and dear and pre-!
clous an incentive working to make
myself worthy to ask you to be my
He paused, out of breath from sheer
emotion, the veins of his neck throb
bing. In a second he went on: "In
all probability your father will recover
from this in a little while. They
doubtless kept you in Ignorance only'
to spare your anxiety, for your sup-'
cess had grown to be a matter of
great pride to them and all of us.
But somehow I knew that one day
you would come back, and I was right,
dear, in what I did."
Malinda felt the quick quivering
and yielding of her fingers in his, and
the next instant she had bent her1
cheeks upon them. No word was
"Will you come back home, sweet
heart?" asked Mowbray after a long
silence. "Our home?"
"I have come, Billy," she said, with
a little tremulous incatch of her
breath, "to stay."
College Community House.
Tenney Hall, a community house, has!
been opened at Smith's college. The
object of this house is to help the
poorer students by reducing their llv-j
Ing expenses to the least possible
amount. The students are to be
housed and fed after the principles
of a socialistic community. All ex
penses will be shared by the occu
pants of the hall, who will contribute
Just enough per capita to run the,
establishment. Each girl or group of
girls in turn will be called on to do!
the housework and cooking so that the
cost of servants may be avoided. The
entire system will be under the super-;
vision of the president of the college.'
Invention of Machine Gun.
France is now in the midst of a con
troversy as to the identity of the man;
who invented-machine guns." The in
vention has always been attributed to'
Gatllng and Nordenfeldt, but it was re-
cently asserted on some authority that
the real Inventor was a Japanese, In1
1704, who was promptly killed for be-j
Ing too clever. It has now been put
forward and hotly argued that what
may be called French patents existed
as far back as the fifteenth century,
and some pieces in the Artillery mu-i
aeum are cited as evidence. j
