he said casually. "1 never knew her to
confuse the name In that way before."
My first shock changed unreasonably
Into the feeling of a suspected conspira
tor. I was sure that he had not heard;
his reference waa oply to his wife's call
ing l.ady "Miriam," not to her whispered
words; but what could those words mean?
Where was Miriam? And If this house
wire In some way divided against itself,
on what side was I? Then I became
suddenly conscious of my silence.
"Surely there Is nothing at all strange
In that," t answered. "For a mother to
call her children by one another's names
lis the commonest thing In the world., es
j peclally when" I stopped, wondering
wnemer i were quite sure mai Miriam
"Tea, natural enough, of course." He
spoke absently; then went on as if an
swering my thought; "And then. Mrs.
Tabor was greatly shaken by our first
daughter's death: so much so that she
has never quite recovered herself phys- 1
Ically. Sometimes, even now, she hardly
realizes, 1 think, tliat Miriam Is not
here." He looked down at his hand, then
raised his eyes steadily to mine.
"That waa several years ago?" I said,
to say something.
"Two years. We have to keep Walter
Reld out of her sight, although she Is
very fond of him, because his actual
words and ways make her remember."
Perhaps It was the effort to convince
himself which made him seem needlessly
eager to explain
"She must be growing stronger though,
all the while." I suggested. "And from
now on, we shall have peace from Ca
ruccl and all the other disturbances he
brings In hla train."
Ho d'd not answer, and the discomfort
I of silence settled heavily down. I began
I to hear the clock ticking, and to be half
! conscious of my breathing. Some on-;
I crossed the room above us and went
quietly down the upper hall toward the
rear of the house. Had that been Miriam's
room in which 1 found the Intruder; and
if so, why was It kept uncannily the same
when all the family were striving to guard
the mother from remembrance? Presently
.Mr. Tabor roused hlself with the de-
i clslon of a man putting a thought away.
"I meant to ask you about that," he
said. "Puim-how or other, this black band

'sharply at nie- "Have you heard any

I "Nothing more than you know; but I
ran across Caruccl this afternoon, and I
think that incident is closed." I went
over the afternoon's events, adding: "So

much mistaken in herself, we've heard

Sheila appeared bubbling with triumph.
