How the Night Ended.
As my horse whinnied and I turned
Into the wood a man walked boldly
"My dear Donovan I have been con-
soling your horse during your absence.
It's a bad habit wo have fallen into

anxious to get rid of me. I came by
Gillespie knocked the ashes from hi3
pipe and thrust it into his pocket. I
was in no frame of mind for talk with
him a fact which he seemed to sur-
mise. "it's late for a fact" he continued;
"'and we both ought to be in bed; but
our various affairs require diligence."
"What are you doing over here?" T
"Well to tell the truth "
"You'd better I"
"To tell the truth my dear Dono-
van since I left your hospitable board
I have been deeply perplexed over

types? Have you ever noticed the
man who summons all porters and
waiters by the pleasing name of

enough; nor is its generic use per-
nicious a matter of taste only. But
the same man may be identified other-

dear Donovan "
"That's enough! I want to know
"what you are doing!" and in my anger
fI shook him by the shoulders.
'"Well if you must have it after I
started to the village I changed my
mind about going and I was anxious
to see whether Holbrook was really
here; so -I got a launch and came over.
I stopped at the island but saw no
one there and I came up the creek un-

my weary wits hard in an effort to ac-
count for his unexpected appearance.

He had himself freed my horse; I
now took the rein and refastened it to
"Weli inexplicable Donovan!"
I laughed pleased to find that my
delay annoyed him. I was confident
that he was not abroad at this hour
lor nothing and It again occurred tor
me that we were on different sides ol
the matter. Sly weariness fell from
me like a cloak as the events of the
past hour flashed fresh in my mind.
"Now" I said dropping the rein and
patting the horse's nose for a moment
""you may go with me or you may sit
liere; but if you would avoid trouble
-flon't try to interfere with me."
I did not doubt that he had been
sent to watch me; and his immediate
purpose seemed to be to detain me.
"I had hoped you would sit down

the partition of Africa or something

STolbrook mnof. I sreuedL haarn had
time enongn to get" out or the creeE
and back to the island; but what mis-
chief Gillespie was furthering in his
behalf I could not Imagine.
There was a gradual rise toward the
creek and we were obliged to clingl.0
the bushes in making our ascent. Sud-
denly as I paused for breath Gilles-
pie grasped my arm.
"For God's sake stop! This is no
affair of yours. On my honor there's
nothing that affects you here."
"I will see whether there Is or not!"
I exclaimed throwing him off but he
kept close beside me.
Wo gained the trail that ran along
the creek and I paused to listen.
"Where's tout launch?"
ram. iz- ne replied succinctly.
1 had my bearings pretty well and
set off toward the Jake Gillespie
trudging behind in the narrow path.
When we had gone about 20 yards a
lantern glimmered below and I heard
voices raised in excited colloquy. Gil-
lespie started forward at a run.
"Keep back! This is my affair!"
"I'm making it mine" I replied and
flung in ahead of him.
I ran forward rapidly the voices
growing louder and soon heard men
stumbling and falling about in conflict
A woman's voice now rose in a sharp
"Let go of him! Let go of him!"
Gillespie flashed by me down the
bank to the water's edge where the
struggle ended abruptly. I was not far
behind and I saw Henry Holbrook in
the grasp of the. Italian who was ex-
plaining to the woman who held tho
lantern high above her head that he
was only protecting himself. Gillespie
had caught hold of the sailor who
continued to protest his innocence of
any wish to injure Holbrook; and for
a moment we peered through the dark
taking account of one anotfier.
"So it's you 13 it?" said Henry Hol-
brook as the Italian freed him and his
eyes fell on me. "I should like to
know what you mean by meddling in
my affairs. By God I've enough to do
with my own flesh and blood without
dealing with outsiders."
Helen Holbrook turned swiftly and
held the lantern toward me and when
she saw me shrugged her shoulders.
"You really give yourself a great
deal of unnecessary concern Mr. Don-
ovan." "You are a damned impudent med-
dler!" blurted Henry Holbrook. "I
have had you watched. You you "
He darted toward me but the Ital-
ian again caught and held him and
another altercation began between
them. Holbrook was wrought to a high
pitch of excitement and cursed every-
body who had in any way interfered
"Come Helen" said Gillespie step-
ping to the girl's side; and at this
Henry Holbrook turned upon him vici-
ously. "You are another meddlesome out-
sider. Your father was a pig a pig
do you understand? If it hadn't been
for him I shouldn't be -here to-night
camping out like "an outlaw. And
you've got to stop annoying my daughter!"-
Helen turned to the Italian and
spoke to him rapidly in -his own
tongue. . '
"You must take him away. He is
not himself. Tell him I have done the
best I could. Tell him "
She lowered her voice so that I
heard no more. Holbrook was still
heaping abuse upon Gillespie who
stood submfc-shrely by; but Helen ran
up the bank e. lantern light flashing !
eerily about her.
The Italian drew Holbrook toward
the boat that lay at the edge of the
lake. He seemed" to forget me in his !
anger against Gillespie and he kept j
turning toward the path down which
the girl's lantern faintly twinkled. Gil- j
lespie kept on after the girl the lan- j
tern flashing more rarely through the j
turn in the path until I caught the 1
threshing of his launch as it swung
out into the lake j
I drew back seeing nottiing to gain
by appealing to Holbrook in his pres-
ent overwrought state. The Italian had
his hands full and was glad I judged
to let me alone. A moment later he
had pushed off his boat and I heard
the sound of oars receding toward tho
I found my horse led him deeper
Into the wood and threw off the sad-
dle. Then I walked down the road
until I found a barn and crawled into
the loft and slept.
The Lady of the White Butterflies.
The twitter of swallows in the eaves
wakened me to tho first light of day
and after I had taken a dip in the
creek I still seemed to be sole pro-
prietor of the world so quiet lay field
and woodland. I followed the lake
shore to a fishermen's camp where in
the good comradeship at outdoor men
the world over I got bread and coffee
and no questions asked. I smoked a
pipe with the fishermen to kill time
and it was still but a trifle after six
o'clock when I started for Red Gate.
A line of sycamores 200 yards to my
tight marked the bed of the Tippeca-
noe; and on my left hand beyond a
walnut grove a little filmy dust-cloud
hung above the hidden highway. I

flowers. Then my attention wandered
to the mad antics of a squirreTthat
ran along the fence?
When I turned to the field again I
saw Rosalind coming toward me along
the path clad in white hatless and
her hands' lightly brushing the lush
grass that seemed to leap up to touch
them. She had not seen me and I
drew back a little for love of the pic-
ture she made.
She paused abruptly midway of the
daisies and I walked toward her slow-
ly It must have been slowly and I
think we were both glad of a mo-
ment's respite in which to study each
other. Then she spoke at once as
though or meeting" had been prear-
"I hoped I should see you" she said
"I had every -intention of seeing
you! I was killing time until I felt
I might decently lift the latch of Red.
She Inspected me with her hands
clasped behind her.
"Please' don't look at me like that!"
I laughed. "I camped in a barn last
night for fear I shouldn't get here in
"I wish to speak-to you for a few
minutes to tell you what you may
have guessed about us my father and
xes; n you like; but orfi -to help
you if I can. It is not necessary for
you to tell me anything."
She turned and led the way across
the daisy field. She walked swiftly
holding back her skirts from the
crowding flowers traversed the garden
of Red Gate "and continued down to
"We can be quiet here" she said
throwing' open the door. "My father
is at Tippecanoe village shipping one
of his canoes. We are early risers
She grew grave again.
"I have Important things to say to
you but it's just as well for you to
see me in the broadest of of daylight
so that" she pondered a moment as
though to be sure of expressing her-
self clearly "so that when you see
Helen Holbrook In an hour or so in
that pretty garden by the lake you
will understand that it was not really
Rosalind after all that that amused
"But the daylight is not helping that
idea. Your are marvelously alike and

comfiture "if you can't tell us apart it
makes no difference whether you ever
see me again or not. You see-Mr.
but did you ever tell me what your
name is? Well I know it anyhow
The little work-table was between
U3 and on it lay the foil which her
father had snatched frc-m the wall the
night before. I still stood gazing
down at Rosalind. Fashion I saw
had done something for the amazing
resemblance. She wore her hair in
the pompadour of the day with ex-
actly Helen's sweep; and lier white
gown was identical with that worn
that year by thousands of young wom-
en. She had even the same-gestures
the same little way of resting her
cheek against her hand that Helen
had; and before she spoke stie' moved
her head a trifle to one side with a
pretty suggestion of just having -been'
startled from a reverie that Was Hel-
en's trick precisely.
She forgot for a moment our serious
affairs to which I was not in the least
anxious to turn in heramuseme'nt -at
my perplexity. -
"It must be even more extraordinary
than I imagined. -I have not seen
Helen for seven years. She is my
cousin; and when we were children to-
gether at Stamford our mothers used
to dress us alike to further the re-
semblance. Our mothers you may not
know were not only sisters; they;
were twin sisters! But Helen is I
think a trifle taller than I am. This
little mark" she touched the- peak
"is really very curious. But our moth-
ers and our grandmothers had it. And
you see that I speak a little more rap-
idly than she does at least that used
to be the case. I don't know my
grown-up cousin at all. We probably
have different tastes temperaments
and all that."
"I am positive of it!" I exclaimed;
yet I was really sure of nothing save
that I was talking to an exceedingly
pretty girl who was amazingly like an-
other very pretty girl whom I knew
"You are her guardian so .to speak "
Mr. Donovan." You are taking care of
my Aunt Pat and toy cousin. Just
how that came about I don't know:"
"They were sent to St Agatha's by
Father Stoddard an old friend of
mine. They had suffered many annoy-
ances to put it mildly and came Here
to get away from their troubles."
"Yes; I understand. Undo Henry
has acted outrageously. I have not
ranged the country at night for noth-
ing. I have even learned a few things
from you" she laughed. "And you
must continue to serve Aunt Patricia
and my cousin. You see" and she
smiled' her grave smile "my father
and I are an antagonistic element."
"No; not as between you and Miss
Patricia! I'm sure of that. It is Henry
Holbrook that I am to protect her
from. You and your father do not en-
ter Into -it."
"If you don't mind telling me Mr.
Donovan I snould like to. know
whetier Aunt Pat has mentioned us."
"Only once when I first saw her
and she explained -why she had come.
She seemed greatly moved when she
spoke of your father. Since then she
has never referred to him. .But the
day we cruised up to Battle Orchard
and Henry Holbrook's man tried to
smash our launch she was shaken out
of herself and she declared war -when
"I Must Ask You Not to Leave Here."
we got home. Then I was on the lake
with her tho night of the carnival.
Helen did not go with us. And when
you paddled by us Miss Pat was quite
disturbed at the sight of you; but she
thought it was an illusion and I
thought it was Helen!"
-i Tiave neen nome only a few weeks
but I came just in time to be with fa-
ther in his troubles. My uncle's en-
mity "Is very bitter as you have seen.
I do not understand it Father has
told me little of their difficulties; but
I know she said lifting her head
proudly "I know that my father has
done nothing dishonorable. He has
told me so and I am content with
I bowed not knowing what to say.
" "I have been here only once or
twice before and for short visits only.
Most of the time I have been at a con-
vent in Canada where I was known as
Rosalind Hartridge. Rosalind you
know is really my name; I was named
for Helen's mother. The sisters took
pity on my loneliness and were very
kind to me. But now I am never go-
ing to leave my father again."
She spoke with no unkindness or
bitterness but with a gravity born of
deep feeling. I marked now the lighter
timbre of her voice that was quite dif-
ferent from her cousin's; and she
spoke more rapidly as she had said
her naturally quick speech catching at
times the cadence of cultivated
French. And she was a simpler na-
ture I felt that; she was really very

- I walked the length of the room and
looked out upon the creek that ran
singingly through the little vale. They
were a strange family these Hol-
brooks and the perplexities of their
affairs multiplied. How to "prevent
further injury and. heartache and dis-
aster' how to restore this girl and her
exiled father to the life from which
they had vanished; and how to save
Miste Pat and Helen these things
possessed my mind and hearty I sat
down- and faced Rosalind across the
table. She had taken up a bright bit
of ribbon from the work-basket and
-was slipping It back and .forth through
"The name Gillespie wasmentronea
here last night. Can you tell me just
how he was concerned in your fa-
ther's affairs?" I asked.
"He was the largest creditor of -the
Holbrook bank. He lived at Stamford
where we all used to live."
"This Gillespie had. a son. I sup-
pose he inherits his father's claims."
She laughed outright.
"T have "heard of him. He is a re-
markable character it seems .wh
does ridiculous things. He did as a
child. I remember him very well a3
a droll boy at Stamford who was al-
ways in mischief. I had forgotten all
about him until I saw an amusing ac-
count of him in a newspaper a few
months ago. He had been arrested for
fast driving in Central park; and the
next day he went back to the park
with with a boy's toy wagon and team
of goats as a joke on tho policeman."
"Lean well believe It! The fellow's
here staying at the inn at Annandale."
"So I 'understand. To be frank; I
have seen him and talked with him.
We have had in fact several interest-
ing interviews" and she laughed mar-dUv
"Where did all this" happen?"
''Once out on the Jake when we
were both prowling about In canoes.
I talked to him but made Mm keep his
distance. I dared him to race me and
finally paddled off and left him. Then
another time on the shore near S.t

of the school garden from the bluff
and Mr. Gillespie came walking
through the woods and made love to
me. He came so suddenly that I
couldn't run but I saw that he! tools

"No I didn't I liked his love-making;

"That was nice of you very nice ot
you Rosalind. I hope you will keep
right on the way you've begun. Now
I must ask you not to leavehere and
not allow your father to leave unless
I know it."
"But you have your hands full with-
out us. Your first obligation is to
Aunt Pat and Helen. My father and
I have merely stumbled in where we
were not invited. You and I had bet-
ter say gcod-by now."
"I am not anxious to say good-by"
I answered lamely and she laughed
"We met under the star-r-rs Mr.
Donovan" (this was impudent; my
own r's trill they say) fc "at the stone
seat and by the boathouse and' we
talked Shakespeare and had a beauti-
ful time all because you thought I

( and Helen by day were different per-
sonalities and that you must n'ot

T keep to the compact didn't you?"
i. I assented a little grudgingly; and
. my thoughts went back with reluctant
step to those early .affairs -of mirfe
' which I have already frankly disclosed
' in ths chronicle and I wondered with
r.her counterpart before me how much
: Helen really meant to me. Rosalind
studied me with her frank merry
eyes; then she bent forward and ad-
dressed me with something of that
prescient air with which my sisters
used to lecture me.
j "Mr. Donovan I fear you are a little
mixed in your mind this morning and
' I propose to set you straight."
j "About what if you please?"
- "I can tell you exactly why it is that
. Helen-has taken so strong hold of your
J .magination why in fact you are in
love with her."
! "Not that not that" ( .
She snatched the foil from the table
' and cut the air with it several times
as I started toward her. Then she
stamped her foot and saluted me.
j "Stand where you are sir! Your
race Mr. Donovan has a bad reputa-
tlon in matters of the heart For a mo-
I ment you thought you were in love

"Precisely? And I'm another one of

I cannot deny that I was a good deal
abashed by this declaration spoken
without coquetry and with a sincerity
of tone and manner that seemed con-
clusive. I beean stammerinfr some reply; but
j she recurred abruptly to the serious
business that hung over us.
