It was a hot Sunday aftornoon. The
grasshoppers whirred nolfilly through
tho layers of heat, tho leaveB on the
toes looked dusty and shrivelled.
Walt and Marian walked along tho
road leading from the town and turned
on an old wood road that lead up tho
hillside under tall steady plncB.
She was clad in a light summer dress
and carried her hat In her hand. She
looked happy and contented. He had
not chnnged In looks from the dissi
pated feckless Walt that he was wont
to ho. but there was a something about
him that seemed different.
"I'm going to work In the Tornado
shaft Wednesday. Marlam." ho was
saying. "I've quit that other life, and
for good. You "
She Interrupted him.' "O, John, I'm
so glad, and I know ypu'll stick to It
You'e got It in you, ami I always
knew that Borne day you'd wake up and
leave Pi lure and his wretched com
panion I'm proud of jo.i, John. I'm
pioud of you,' and she held out both
her hands to him. her face all sunny
with smiles and her ees shining. He
took her hands -.and started to raise
one to his lipH. but she drew it quickly
away, anil the light died out of her
"You mustn't do that," she said gent
ly. They walked on In silence for a mo
ment, till they came to a clearing
among the trees, which gave them a
ew out oer the hills There they
paused. Sho seated heisclf at the foot
of a ttce and he stood leaning against
Its tiunk, aboe her.
"I'm sorry I offended jou, Marlam,"
ho said Shu looked up at him and
smiled ' Dut it was unintentional I
meant to tell ou something then, but
oii stopped me. now ou must listen
to me "
She did not look up, but sat with
her chin in her hands, ga.ing out ovei
"You can't know what your friend
ship has meant to mo; when a fellow
Is down as I was, It's pretty hard to
get up alone, and wlien he meets a
good, pine woman who is a true friend
to him and helps him and trusts and
helps him, and shows him that there
is something in life for him and points
out tho way to a better life, why why
he he grows to care for that woman
with all his heart and bouI." Marlam
rose quickly to her feet and Btood with
her face turned from him. "For me
Marlam, you are that woman, and I
I love you."
He reached and took one of hei
hands which hung at her side. She
pulled It hurriedly away and faced him
squaiely; her face was pale and drawn
and tears wero streaming down hei
"Oh! Why did you tell me," she
said wildly. "Why did you tell me. I
I" she sobbed. "1 love you but
why did you tell mo? 0! I hate you."
She ran a few stops from him, thoD
paused and leaning against a trco she
covered her face with her hands and
her body shook with Bobs. Wait start
ed towards her, but sho motioned him
back, and he stopped and waited, with
great staring eyes, for he know not
Giadually the sobs died away; then
she dried her eyes and camo slowly to
to tho treo-whero they first were and
they both sat down.
"I'll tell you now why," she said in
a low strained voice "My name as
Marlam Price. Mrs. Marlam Price, lis
ten dear." "Walt had partly risen. "I
was married when I was seventeen. I
ran away with Will Price and was mar
ried against my parents' wishes. Will
was always a good husband but as I
grew older I found we didn't have much
In common, but still wo wero happy.
Ho worked in a bank as cashier, his
brother was president. Ono month the
accounts appeared short, tho blame
and suspicion foil on Will. He knew
where tho shortage was,, his brother
had used tho money, but would not
own up to it. Will was tried, con
victed and sentenced to hvo years' im
prisonment. Ho kept his brother's se
cret and is Is serving his time. He
has served four years of it All our
money, -which wasnt much, Is gone,
and I'm working hero to make a littlo
start for us when he comes out, God
knows we'll need it. I came hero bo-
cause no one know me." She paused a
moment, then went on. "And now,
dear, you understand." Wait remained
aildnt, gazing at the ground. "God
known I love you, dearest, hotter than
all. Hut Ho sees and knows I bclonj,
to another and ho needs mo and I must
bo true to him. Our love Is not for
this life, possibly In the next world He
will bring us together. But promise
mo before before wo part, that you
will lead a life such as you would if
we were to be together. In your love
for me swear that you will be true to
all that is beat In you."
"I swer," ho whispered hoarsl. "I,
Marlam, Marlam." She rose to her feet
"You must oaQ me here," nhe Bald
He sat in sllenee like one stunned
for a moment, then roBe slowly to his
feet and passed bis hand across his
"You'll leave town tonight, won't
you?" HhV asked earnestly He nodded.
"Then Goodbye! John "
She held out her hands and he took
them and covered them with kisses,
and staited to draw her to him, but
she bioke from him with o low moan.
"No', No! 0. God' No1 Please I
plcape go quickly "
Then he turned and I. It hei, going
