The Abandoned Room
By Wadsworth Camp
Ahead the forest was scarred by
a yellow wound. The bearers set
their burden down beside it, glanc
ing at each other with relief. Across
the heap of earth Bobby saw the
waiting excavation. In. his ears
vibrated the memory of the harsh
"It's deep enough l"
. Another voice droned. It was
sift and unctuous. It seemed to
take a pleasure in the terrible words
it loosed to stray eternally through
the decaying forest.
Bobby glanced at bent stones,
strangled by the underbrush; at
other slabs, cracked and brown,
which lay prone, half covered by
creeping vines. The tones of the
clergyman were no longer revolt
ing in his ears. He scarcely heard
them. He imagined a fantasy. He
pictured the inhabitants of these
forgotten, narrow houses straying
to the great dwelling where they
had lived, punishing this one,
bringing him to suffer with them
the degradation of their neglect. So
Robinson became less important
in his mind. Through such fancies
the ordeal was made bearable.
A - wind sprang up, rattling
through the trees and disturbing
the vines on the, fallen stones. Later,
he thought, it would snow, and he
shivered for those lefi helpless to
sleep in the sad forest.
The dark-clothed men strained at
ropes now- They glanced at Kath
erine and Bobby as at those most
to be impressed by their skill. They
lowered Silas Blackburn's grimly
shaped casing into the sorrel pit. It
passed from Bobby's sight. The two
roughly dressed labourers came
from the thicket where they had
hidden, and with their spades ap
proached the grave- The sound
from whose imminence Bobby had
shrunk rattled in his ears. The
yellow earth cut across the stormy
twilight of the cemetery and scat
tered in the trench. After time
the response lost its metallic petu
lance. Katherine pulled at. Bobby's hand.
He started and glanced up. One of
the black-clothed men was speaking
to liim with a professional gentle
ness: "You needn't wait, Mr. Black
burn. Everything is finished."
He saw now that Robinson stood
across the grave, still staring at
him. The professional mourner
smiled sympathetically and moved
away. Katherine, Robinson, the
two grave diggers, and Bobby alone
were left of the little company; and
Bobby, staring back atjthe district
attorney, took a sombre pride in
facing it out until even the men
with the spades had gone. The or
deal, he reflected, had lost its
poignancy. His mind was intent on
the empty trappings he. had wit
nessed. He wondered if there was,
after all, no justice against his
grandfather in this unkempt burial.
The place might have something to
tell him. If it could only make him
believe that beyond the inevitable
fact nothing mattered. If he were
sure of that it would offer a way
out at the worst; perhaps the hap
piest exit for Katherine's sake.
Then Doctor Groom returned.
His huge hairy figure dominated
the cemetery. His infused eyes,
beneath the thick black brows.were
far-seeing. They seemed to pene
trate Bobby's thought. Then they
glanced at the excavation, appear
ing to intimate that Silas Black
burn's earthly blanket could hide
nothing from the closed eyes it
sheltered. At his age he faced the
near approach of that inevitable
fact, and lie didn't hesitate to look
beyond. Bobby knew what Gra
ham had meant when he said that
Groom had brought the ghosts back
with him. It was as if the ceme
tery had recalled the old doctor to
answer his presumptuous question.
"There'Ss no use your staying here."
The resonance of the deep voice
jarred through the woods. The
broad shoulders twitched. One of
the hairy hands made a half circle.
"I hope you'll clean this up, my
boy. You ought to replace the
stones and trim the graves. You
couldn't blame them, could you, if
these old people were restless and
tried to- go abroad?"
For Bobby, in spite of himself,
the man on whose last shelter the
earth continued to fall became once
more a potent' thing, able to dp
praise the penalty of his own care
lessness. "Come," Katherine whispered.
But Bobby lingered, oddly fascin
ated, supporting the ordeal tOyits
final moment. "The blows of the
backs of the spades on the com
pleted mound beat into his brain
the end. From a distance the
harsh voice of one of them came
"I don't want to dig again in
such a place. People don't seem
s Robinson tried to laugh.
"That man's -wise," he said to the
doctor. "If Paredes spoke of this
cemetery as being full of ghosts I
could understand him."
The doctor's deep bass answered
"Paredes is probably right. The
man has a special sense, but I have
felt it myself. The Cedars and
the forest are full of things that
seem to whisper, things that one
never sees. Such things might have
an excuse for evil."
"Let's get out of it," Robinson
Ka'therine 'withdrew her hand.
Bobby reached for it again, but
she seemed not to notice. She
walked ahead of him along the path,
her shoulders a trifle bent. Bobby
caught up with her.
"Katherine!" he said.
"Don't talk to me, Bobby."
He loot&d closer. He saw that
she was crying at last. Tears stained
her cheeks. Her lips were strange
to him in the distortion of a grief
that seeks to 1 control itself. He
slackened his pace and let her walk
ahead. He followed with a sort of
awe that there' should have been
grief for Silas Blackburn after all.
He blamed himself because his own
eyes were not moist.
Back of him he heard the mur
muring conversation of the doctor
and the district attorney. Strangely
it made him sorry that Robinson
should have been more impressed
than Howells by the doctor's be
liefs. They stepped into the clearing.
The wind had dissipated the smoke
siroud. It was no longer low over
the roofs. Against the forest and
the darker clouds the house had a
stark appearance. It was like a
frame from which the flesh has
The black wagon had gone. The

Bobby saw Katherine's shoulders
shake. She had dried her eyes, but
in her face was expressed an aver
sion for solitude, a desire for ahy
company, even that of the man she
disliked and feared.
Robinson took Rawlins to the
library for another futile consulta
tion, Bobby guessed. Katherine
sat on the arm of a chair, thrusting
one foot toward the fresh blare.
"It will snow," she said. "It is
very early for that."
No one answered. The strain
tightened. The flames leapt.throw
ing evanescent pulsations of bril
liancy about the dusky hall. They
welcomed Jenkins' announcement
that luncheon was ready, but they
scarcely disturbed the hurriedly
prepared dishes, and afterward
they gathered again in the hall, si
lent and depressed, appalled by the
long, dreary afternoon,which, how
ever, possessed the single virtue of
dividing them from another night.

These city commissioners of ours
were just as good as a minstrel
show at the regular meeting Thurs
day morning. Whether it was the
prospect of settlement in the street
car strike or what it was, we don't
know, but they were just full of
jokes and things. It started off when
a lengthy letter from West Leav
enworth Improvement club was
read, setting forth elaborate reasons
why a street light should be moved
from Fifty-sixth street to Fifty-fifth
street. Commissioner, Ure humor
ously moved that "an open meeting
be called for next Monday night
whereat the problem may be dis
cussed and, perhaps, solved."
Towl "Why not put it up to the
war labor board?"
Ure "How about my motion for
an open meeting?"
The Mayor "Well, you can meet,
if you want to, Mr. Ure, but the
rest of us beg to be excused."
Take Up Policemen's Pay.
Then Commissioner Ringer intro
duced a resolution that the police
men be paid "bi-monthly instead of
monthly." This was passed, and
then some one mentioned that "bi
monthly" means every two months.
Ringer got the resolution and
changed it to "semi-monthly."
The Mayor "What right have
you to change the cecord after it
has been voted?"
Ringer "I crave permission."
A persistent pounding was heard
on the wall of the next room, where
a workman was installing a new
