Cause for "Divorce.
Mrs. Lonoro Reynolds of Union Hill ,
N. J. , has gone Into the courts to got
n divorce from her husband , Wllmot
IS. Reynolds , n. faith curlst of that
place. The complaint made by the lady
Is that her husband demands not only
that she must bo cured of all her ills
by faith , but that ho must live en
tirely by faith. AH an Instance of this
eho alleges that when she asked him
for twenty-five cents with which to
purchase a skirt lining ho found It ne
cessary to pray four hours for divine
guidance In the matter , and , as she
was In a hurry for the lining , she could
not ufford. to wait that long with the
even chance tnat It might not bo
vouchsafed to her after all. Mrs.
Reynolds scorns to have good grounds
for wishing to got clear of Mr. Rey
nolds , for if she has to wait four hours
for twonty-flvo cents with which to got
11 skirt lining , it Is Impossible to tell
how many days , weeks , or months she
might have to wait If she wished to
got money enough for a dross. No
woman should bo compelled to endure -
duro such n tax upon patlcnco or such
uncertainties about obtaining matters

CHAPTER V. ( Continued. )
The sick man turned a startled look
"What do you moan , little one ? Tell
mo , Jasmlno. Have you any reason
for saying this ? "
"None , " she answered , gently patting
his thin hand , "but that kind of in
stinct which you once said to mo , dad
dy , all \vomcn have. I don't like him ;
I mistrust him. Is It not strange ?
There are some people , now" she
paused , and n lltlo soft color crept Into
her cheeks "that ono feels could help
ono , would never betray one , could
keep one's secrets as they would their
"Yes , ' said David Lloyd , "that is so.
There Is that young lawyer , now
what Is his name ? Enderby ; I think
I could trust him. But you are wrong
about Lyndon , Jasmlno ; ho Is my
friend. Now It is time for my medi
cine , Is It not ? "
Jasmine went away for it , and after
giving it to him , sat down by the fire.
There was a soft light In her eyes , a
kind of trcmulousness on her mouth ,
as she looked into the dickering flame.
Of what was she thinking ? Who can
say ? The thoughts of youth are long ,
But she did not forget her household
duties. She ran away presently to get
the early tea which her father liked
more than any other meal. Suddenly
she heard a faint cry , and running to
her father's side she found him lying
back In his chair , n ghastly color like
that of death overspreading his face ,
his oycs open , but fixed and glazed , his
lips apart , and a slight froth upon
thorn. His whole appearance was a
terrible ono ; but Jasmine had seen It
once before the night on which she
had gone for Doctor Lyndon.
She looked for a basin of warm wa
ter , and put his stiff hands Into It , as
if with an Idea that that would do him
good. As she did so a knock sounded
on the door. She flew to It , and open
ed It to sec Paul Enderby.
It was Sunday , the day on which he
had promised to come.
"Oh , Mr. Enderby , " she exclaimed ,
"father Is terribly 111 ! Will you come
In ? "
He followed her , and was shocked
to see the terrible condition of her
father. Jasmlno continued her opera
tions , loosened the neckband of the
dressing gown , and chafed his hands
with her own trembling ones.
"Shall we lift him into bed , and I
shall run for the doctor ? " said Ender
by , In a whisper.
"No , no not Dbctor Lyndon ! " she
exclaimed , with a sudden energy that
startled him. "But , If yon do not
mind helping me , wo could lift him
Into bod. "
Enderby , with great gentleness , did
so. Then he stood aside , wondering ,
as he had often done before , why he
came always to bo a helper of this
man and his daughter ; It was while
Jasmine hung over her father , doing
what she could for him with such wo
manly and almost motherly solicitude ,
that Enderby saw In her now a wo
man , not a child.
Suddenly the dreadful look passed
from the sick man's face , and he be
gan to talk In a strange , rambling ,
"Yes , yes , Lyndon just so , that's
what wo must do. Keep It quiet , of
course. But he what Is his name ?
Sir John , Sir Matthew no , no I've
forgotten ! he'll help me. He won't
&eo harm come to me. And then there's
Jasmlno , my little one. Oh , whatever
happens she must bo cared for and
looked after , and she must come to
me. See hero , this Is how we'll
His voice trembled away Incoherent
ly. 'Jasmine , her face very white , and
wide terror In her eyes , turned to End-
orby. The young man's heart ached
at the agony in her appealing look.
"Has he ever been like this before ? "
he asked in a low voice.
"Only once , " Jasmlno whispered ,
"and that was the night I met you.
Oh. it Is terrible ! "
"What can wo do ? You don't wish
for Lyndon. Shall I got another doc
tor ? " Enderby asked.
"No ; he would be so put about over
It when ho became conscious. " sim
moved to the foot of the bed , for the
Incoherent babblings were now lower ,
and Endorby followed her. Suddenly
she looked up with terror In her face.
"It Is awful to think It , " she said ,
whispering and ho could sec her lips
twitching norvoiuly "but 1 I am
afraid of Doctor Lyndon. I don't
trust him. Can It ho oh , I dare not
say It ! "
Paul started violently , and ho felt
his own pale faco. Could there bo any
thing In the vague siuplclon and mis
trust of this man ? Ho felt ho must
know what Jasmine thought ; so much
depended upon It. lie laid his hand on
"Miss Lloyd , will you trust mo suf
ficiently to tell mo what you moan ?
You have some reason to dislike , to
distrust Doctor Dyndon ? As I told
you , I know him a little. Perhaps
I might bo nblo to help you If I know
what you fear. "
Jasmine stole to her father's side.
Ho was asleep. She came back to En
derby , and made a motion to Jilm to
follow her to the window.
"I know you will not betray us , "
she said In a. low voice. "Perhaps
you have guessed my father has some
secret weighing on his mind. I do
not know what It Is ; ho has not told
me. But I know this : my father is
a good man , and he has never done
anyone nvrong in his life. Doctor
Lyndon knows his secret ; I can see
that. My father trusts him , and takes
everything the doctbr prescribes. Ho
hardly takes any food ; that Is because
Doctor Lyndon says he must not eat
much , and that Is making him so
weak. And the doctor gives him a
medicine It is marked 'Hypophos-
phates' on the label. Ho had taken a
dose of that the last dose in the bottle
tle , The last time ho was ill like this ;
and that he had today Is the last dose
In the bottle. Is not that strnngo ? "
It was starngc very. Enclerby's
face , grave and pale , was slightly
turned from Jasmine ; but she saw it ,
and a sudden , overwhelming terror
moved over her. In her agitation she
seized his hand.
"You think It strange ? " she said.
"Oh , I must save him ! I must save
him ! Help mo , dear God help me ! "
Passionate sobs broke her voice , and
she threw herself on her knees , cov
ering her face with her hands. Ender
by looked down at her , strange emo
tions stirring him.
Then he bent down and raised her
"Don't give way like that , my child !
Wo shall save him , no fear of that.
I shall tell you what I will do. I have
a friend , a doctor. You must persuade
your father to see him. As for the
bottle , you must let me have It , and
we shall soon know the truth. And
In the meantime , bo brave and strong ,
and take care of your father ; and on
no account give him anything pro
scribed by .Doctor Lyndon. "
With a sudden Impulse the girl
seized his hand again , and this time
snatched it to her lips.
"May God bless and reward you forever
over and ever ! " she murmured , brok
enly. And then , as If ashamed of her
self , turned away , while a warm blush
drowned the pallor of her face.
"Yes , there is nothing else for it.
I must refuse Sir Henry's offer , and
Cecil will be lost to me forever , " said
Enderby to himself , as he walked
away from Burden mansions.
It was nearlng the hour for evening
service , and church bells were already
ringing a clangor of loud Invitations
over all the great city. Enderby was
a church-goer. He was not one of the
class , s.0 common among college-bred
and cultured young manhood , who
consider a religion a superstition , and
have renounced the belief that there
Is any God who ruleth the earth ; and
he felt at this moment , which seemed
like a crisis In his life , a strange de
sire to be guided in his course of con
duct by something higher than human
wisdom or counsel.
Ho went into Westminster Abbey ,
and remained throughout the service.
The nsalms seemed strancolv annll-
cable to his own use.
"Lord , who shall abide In Thy taber
nacle ? or who shall rest upon Thy
holy hill ?
"Ho that hath used no deceit In his
tongue , nor done evil to his neighbor ,
and hath not slandered his neigh
* * * * * *
"He that swearoth unto his neigh
bor and dlsappolnteth him not , though
It were to his own hbidranco.
"Ho that hath not taken reward
against the Innocent. "
Enderby bowed his knees humbly
with the rest of the congregation , and
from his heart went up a truly earnest
"Help me. 0 God. to do the thing
that Is right , even though It bo to
my own hindrance ! Guard me from
over seeking a bribe against those
who may be nay , who I feel sure
are Innocent. "
He wrote to Sir Henry Lennox that
Dear Sir Henry : Will you allow mete
to withdraw my acceptance of your
most kind and generous offer to take
mo as your junior in a certain case
that is pending ? I find I cannot con
scientiously take the case in hand. I
can only trust to your generosity not
to ask my reasons , which are private
ones. Again thanking you for your
kindness , yours very sincerely ,
Ho had promised not to disclose his
acquaintance with the man calling
himself David Lloyd , and ho meant
to keep that promise until ho w.is
freed from It.
Enderby had gone straight from
Burden mansion to his frlond Doctor
Bunthornc , and asked him to call ' ; pen
David Lloyd , merely saying It wan 11
case In which ho was Interested ,
though the Lloyds were little more
than chance acquaintances , and prom
ising to call in on the doctor and hear
his rnport. ,
On Monday ho mot Sir Henry at the
Law Couits. The great lawyer loor.od
palo and worn ; Enderby had never
seen him look so old or so spent a
"You do not look well , Sir Henry.
Why don't you take a holiday ? " ho
said. "If I were your doctor I should
Insist upon It. The brain needs a rest
as well as the body , and you glvo youw
absolutely noao. "
"I am all right , " said Sir Henry , a
lltUo impatiently for him ; ho waa us
ually so patient oven In dealing with
stupid witnesses or dogmatic 'learned
brothers , ' that it was a common legend
among the barristers that the Queen's
Counsel had never been seen out of
"So you don't wish to make a name
for yourself In the Browlow Pearl case ,
Enderby ? Have you heard anything
about It from from any ono ? "
"Sir Henry. I am not at liberty to
reply to your question , " replied the
young man , with the Bllghtcst shade
of hesitation. "May I ask you again ,
as I asked you In my letter , to gen
erously leave the matter as It Is ? I
shall never , bellovo me , forget your
kindness In making mo an offer Which ,
If I could have accepted It , would have
been so advantageous to myself. "
Sir Henry turned aside for a mo
ment ; but when he looked around
again the momentary expression of Ir
ritation had passed from his faco.
"For whatever reason you have re
fused , Enderby , " he said , "I am sure
It is one that docs honor to yourself.
The man who can refuse to take fort
une's tide at the flood , when ho knows
It will lead on to fortune , 'because
conscience forbids him to do so , is a
man who , perhaps , may not succeed In
this world , but whose failure , If he
falls , is more glorious than the sue-
co s of others. "
"Thank you , Sir Henry , " said En
derby , flushing a little. The praise of
such a man as Sir Henry was worth
something , for he was one whom Paul
Euderby admired and revered with all
How had he been deceived by such
a man as Dundas Lyndon ? Enderby
asked himself the question again and
again. In his own mind he had ar
rived at Avhat seemed a likely enough
solution of the mystery of David
Dundas Lyndon was in some way
connected with the crime with which
Lloyd had been accused , and wa
working upon the gentle and unsuspi
cious nature of the latter In order to
got an inconvenient and dangeroua
witness out of the way.
Enderby hardly know how deeply he
was Interested In the case until he dls-
covered that he had almost forgotten
an engagement he had In the evening ,
at which he expected to meet Cecil
She was there , surrounded by a bevy
of admirers , as Euderby approached ,
and looked very lovely in > .er exqul-
site Parisian confection of primrose
Enderby's pulses beat quicker as she
turned her brilliant smile unon him.
She extended her hand , and in a few
minutes he and she wore alone.
"So you are to be my father's Junior
in a great case that Is coming on ? "
she said , still smiling upon him. " 1
am so glad ! I congratulate you be
forehand. It is the beginning of fame
for you , and you will go up the ladder
00 quickly once you have started the
Enderby's face foil , and a shadow
came upon his brow.
"Sir Henry told you so much , Jllss
Lennox ? But did he not toll you that
1 had refused his generous offer ? "
"Refused ! You can't be In earnest ,
Mr. Enderby ! Refused such an offer !
Why. it will be the making of your
fortune ! This case Is a celebrated ono ,
my father says. What possible reason
can you have for refusing ? "
