away and thon hurry east to an oh-

As my two frlend3 waved farewell
to me from tho rear platform of their

I had lost much that day and what I
had'galued my restoration to the re-
gard of the kind old man of ray own
blood who bad appealed for myVom-
panlonshl'p In terms hard to deny
seemed trifling as I tiampod back
over the Ice. Perhaps Pickering after
all was the real gainer by the day's
I tramped on back toward the Glen-
nrm shore and leaving the lake halt-
unconsciously struck Into the wood be-
yond the dividing wall. The melted
snow of mid-day was now crisp lco
tbat rattled and broke under my tread.
I csme out Into an open space beyond

turned toward homo In the gathering
As I ncared the main entrance to
the school the door opened and a worn-
nn came out under the overhanging
lamp. She carried a lantern and
turued with a hand outstretched o
some one who followed her with care-
"Ah Marian" cried my grandfather.
"It's ever the task of youth to light
the way for age!"
And So the Light Led Me.
He had been to see Sister Theresa
and Marian was walking with him to
the cate. I saw her quite plainly In
the light that fell from the lamp over-
head. A long cloak covered her. and
a fur toque capped ber graceful head.
My grandfather and hla guide were
apparently In high spirits and their
laughter smote harshly upon me. It
seemed to shut me out to lift a bar-
rier against me. The world lay there
wilUiln the radius ot that swaying
light and I hung aloof hearing her
voice and Jealous of the very com-
panionship and sympathy between
But the light led me. I remembered
with bitterness tbat I had always fol-
lowed her whether as Olivia trail-
ing In her girlish grace across the
snow" or as the girl in gray whom I
had followed on that night journey at
Christmas eve; and I followed now.
The distrust my shattered faith my
utter loneliness could not weigh
against the Joy of hearing that laugh
of hers breaking mellowly on the
I paused to allow the two figures to
widen the distance between us as they
traversed the path that curved away
toward the chapel. I could still hear
their voices and see the lantern flash
and disappear. I felt an Impulse to
turn back or plunge Into the wood-
land; but I was carried on uncontroll-
ably. The light glimmered and her
olee still floated back to me. It stole
through the keen winter dark Hke a
memory of spring; and so her voice
and the light led me.
Thea I heard aa exclamation of dis-
may followed by laughter In which
say grandfather Joined merrily.
"Oh never mind; we're not afraid!"
I had rounded the curve In the patl
where I sbonld have seen the llgh
hut the darkness was unbroken. Thai
was silence for a moment in whichjl
mow quire near to tneui.
Thep my grandfather's volco broke
"Now I must ga hnrl; wi!h you! A
floe person you are to guide un old
man! A foolish virgin Indted with
no oil in her lamp!"
"Please do not! Ot course I'm go-
ing to see you quite to your own door!
I don't Intend to put ray band to the
lantern and then turn back!"
"Tbla wu!k Isn't what It should be"
said my grandfather "we'll have to
make a better one In the spring."
Then they were silent and I heard
him futilely striking a match wben
suddenly the lantern foil Its wires
rattling as It struck the ground end
the two exclaimed with renewed mer-
rlnxvit upon their misfortune.
"If you will allow me!" I rslled out
fumbling In ray pocket for my own
I have sometimes thought that
there Is really some sort of decent
courtesy to me. An old man caught in
a rough path tbat was none too good
at best! And a girl even though my
enemy! But those were not. I fanoy
the reflections that crossed my mind
at ttie moment.
"Ah It's Jack" exclaimed my grand-
father. "Marian was showing me the
th- way to the gate and our light want
"Miss Devereux" I murmured. I
have I hope an Icy tone for persons
who have Incurred my displeasure
and I employed It then and tbere with
no doubt Its fullest value.
She and my grandfather were grop-
ing In the dark for the lost lantern
and I putting out my hand touched
hor nngloved fingers.
"I be? your pardon" she murmured
Then I found and grasped the Ian-
tern. "One moment" I said "and 111 see
wbat'B the trouble."
I thought my grandfather took It
but the flaruo of my wax match showed
ber fingers clasping the wire frame.
The cloak slipped away showing ber
arm's soft curve the blue and white
of her bodice the purple blur of vio-
lets; and for a second I saw her face
with a smile qulyerlng about ber Hps.
My grandfather was beating the
ground Impatiently with bis stick urg-
ing us to leave the lantern and go on.
"Let it alone" he said.' "I'll go
down through the chapelj theie's a
lantern in there somewhere."
"I'm awfully sorry" she said "but
I recently lost my best lantern!"
To be sure she had! I wss angry
that she should so brazenly recall the
night I found her looking for Picker-
ing's notes In the passage at the Door
She bad lifted tho lantern now and
I was striving to touch the wax taper
to the wick with imminent danger to
my bare fingers.
VThey don't really light well when
the oil's out" she observed with an
exasperating air of wisdom.
I took it from her hand and shook
It close to my ear.
"Yes: of course it's empty" 1 mut-
tered disdslnfully and threw it from
"Oh Mr. Olenarm!" she cried turn-
ing away toward my grandfather.
I heard his stick beating the rough
path several yards away. He was
hastening toward Glenarm House.
"I think Mr. Olenarm has gone
"Oh that Is too had!"' she ex-
"Thank you! He's probably at the
chapel by this time.' If you will per-
mit me "
"Not at all!"
A man in the sixties should not
tax his arteries too severely. I was
quite sure that my grandfather raa
up the chapel steps; I could hear his
stick beating hurriedly on the stones.
"If you wish to go: farther" I be-
gan. I was lndlgraot at my grandfather's
conduct; he had deliberately run- off
leaving roe alone with a young woman
whom I had resolved never to see
"Thank you; I shall go back now. I
was merely walking to the 'gate with
Mr. Glenarm. It Is so fine to have htm
back again so unbelievable!"
It was just such a polite murmur aa
one might employ in speaking to ao
old foe at a friend's Uble.
She listened a moment for his step;
then apparently satisfied turned back
toward St. Agatha's. . I followed un-
certain hesitating marking her defin-
ite onward flight From the folds el
her cloak stole the faint perfume of
violets. The sight of her the sound
of her voice combined to weate and
to destroy! a mood with every step.

thing that bad been ordained from the
beginning of time and did not mat
. "And I wish te say a word about
Mr. Pickering" I added.
She paused Sad faced me abruptly
We were at the edge of the wood
and the school lay quite near. She
caught the cloak closer about her and
gave her head a little toss I remem
bered well as a trick compelled by
the vagaries of woman's headdress.
"I csn't talk to you here Mr. Glen--arm;
I had no Intention of ever see-
ing you again; hut I must say this to
"Those notes ef Pickering I shall
ask Mr. Cleaarm to give them to yon I
as a mark of esteem from me."
She stepped backward as thongh I ;
had struck her 1
"You risked much for than and
for hlm-i" I went on.
"Mr. Glenarm I have no Intention
of discussing that or any other mat-
ter with yoi "
"It is better seM . (
"But your accusations the things
you imply are unjust infamous!"
The quaver in her voloe shook my
resolution to deal harshly with her.
"If I had not myself bees a wit-
ness " I began. '
"Yes; you have the conceit of your
own wisdom I dsre say."
"But that challenge to follow you.

I'm glad neither fortune ner duty kept

know that Pickering shall sot suffer
for anything that has happened. I
shaV not punish him; for your sake

A sigh So deep that it was like e sob
broke from her. She thrust forth her
band entreaflngly. 1 v .
"Why don't yon go to him 'with your
generosity? Ton are so ready to be-
lieve ill of me!. And I shall net de-
fend myself; but I wfjl say these

The End. f
Jspaneie Taste In Colors.
The Japanese dross very quietly
even more so than Amelcnns. Tbe
bablos are decked out In very gay col-
ors contrasts of purple yellow red
etc. Tbe children wear mostly big
patterns of "kasnrl." This Ms - the
name for tbe large patterns ' of
squares blocks lines etc. which are
mostly white patterns on blue ground.
Blue Is a favorite color In Japan prob-
ably more so than any other single
color varying from Indigo to very
dark blue. The older they get the
more eoborly they drees and the men
wear no loud colors. Black may be
said to be the national color In cloth
and the clothing mostly used Is very
narrow striped gray and black: The
younger girls affect gay colors and
on holidays that It true of a large por-
tion of the people but ordinarily tbe

Ancaeuti was king of Samos In the
Grecian archipelago he planted aa ex-

beaten. .' Then at last when the wine
was made he sent for the slave to wit-
ness him drink the first glass la order
to show him that lbs prophesy wo
