"Yesl" said Nimble. But 10 min
utes later he couldn't have repeated
a word that hit mother said except
that they were going to start for
the garden when the moon rose.
That much he told Jimmy Rabbit
when he met him in the woods a
little while afterward. And Jimmy
Rabbit agreed to get the news,
somehow, to Fatty Coon and Cuf
fy Bear. '
He was as good as his promise
even better. For Jimmy told every
body he met that day. He explained
about the excursion to the garden
patch and said that every one must
be ready to start just as the moon
peeped over the rim of the world,

Nimble found that day a long one.
He was 'so eager to get a carrot
i between his lips that he thought
'flight would never conn;. But dark
ness fell at last. And some hours
later his mother said to him. "Are
you ready?" ,. ;
He was. So together they passed
silently along the old runway which
led. as his mother knew, to the pas
ture fence. The woods were inky
black, for the moon had not yet
risen. But Nimble's mother remark
ed that she thought they would see
it when they reached the open hill
side. Just before they came to the fence
somebody spoke. Nimble's mother
jumped when somebody cried, "Good
evening 1" But she knew at once that
it was only Jimmy Rabbit.
"I see you're on time, he said. I
haven't been waiting long."
"Waiting?" Nimble's mother ex
claimed. "Waiting for what?"
"For youl" he answered. "I heard

How did Jimmy Rabbit happen to
have heard of the excursion? She
couldn't imagine. But he was a harm
less little fellow. Really she didn't
mind having him go with her.
"Very well!" she told him. "But
remember:'You must be quiet!" And
she was ju.t about to walk up to
the fence when the cave a search

The Reason Katie Told Lillian and
There was such emotional earnest
net in Lillian's tone as she poke
of Katie's "grit and saerihrc" that
I began to have a dim comprehension
of the reason for my little maid's
choke of a confidant.
"You mean" I questioned, liesi
"1 mean." Lillian answered, "that
Katie fully expect to have the most
awlul things imaginable happen to
her because she 'broke her swear,'
and that the reason she wouldn't con
ride in you, but chose me instead, is
bccau.e the abysmal brute who made
her take the oath extended his male
dictions to include the person whom
the should tell. And 1 really believe
the old melodrama plel i true in
Katie's case. Me would die before
she' would let barm come to you.
But I never saw such abject (car,
such certainty of evil to come, as
that poor girl diplayed Jut now."
I at down quickly in the nearest
chair, shaken, aghast at this revela
tion of suffering and sacrifice upon
the part of my devoted little maid.
"It gets you. too, doesn't it?" she
commented. "I don't mind telling
you that she pretty nearly bowled
me over, and you know I'm not very
strong on the teary-lash thing. But
there was something mighty admira
ble and pitiful in the way she came
through with the things I wanted to
know, and all the time patiently ex
pecting to have flames appear out of
the air and consume her. or to un
dergo some other equally pleasant
"But but." I stammered, "when
I talked to her before you took her
in hand she told me that it wasn't
either fear of the law or her religion
that made her afraid not to keep the
oath she was forced to take. 1 was
trying to impress upon her, you
know, that it wasn't binding."
There's a Link"
"Yes, I know," Lillian returned.
"But, while you made her see the
necessity for her breaking it, neither
you nor anyone else in the world
could convince her that she isn't
bound to a most devilish compact.
It's true that she doesn't fear the
law or her religion in connection
with it. It's a far more subtle, more
terror-inspiring thing with which
that man imbued her."
I only looked my wondering in
quiry, refraining from speech, for I
saw that Lillian meant to tell me all
that she could without breaking her
promise to Katie to keep me out of
"I think I've told you that many
of the women, and men, too, of Ka
tie's ilk' still believe in black magic,
supernatural spirits, the evil eye,
devils and all sorts of horrors which
more enlightened people do not even,
guess at. In Katie's case I think
her belief is particularly strong
she's the queerest combination of
acquired new-world mannerisms and
old-world superstitions I ever saw.
Of course, this man in the hospital
is some countryman of hers, but he
must have known her very well to
be able to play upon her fears and
frighten her the way he has done
And yet she will not admit to me
that she ever saw him before he
came to this section. There's a link
or two in the chain of her actions
that I haven't yet in my hands."
She paused, looking at me in care
fully-casual fashion. I knew that
she would not ask me outright
whether I had any knowledge or sus
picion of the identity ot the man
who had so frightened my little
maid, but the question lay between
us, nevertheless, and I answered it
as if she had uttered it.
"I have no real knowledge, either,"
I said, "though I have a theory. But
it is based upon a confidence which
Katie gave me years ago, and which
I do not feel justified in revealing
without her consent"
"I thought as much," Lillian re
turned. "Well, it doesn't so much
matter just now, although I shall
need the knowledge later. But she
told me enough to enable me to get
a pretty straight line on the gifted
gentleman. It looks right now like
