murder? Good heavens—whore?"
nvn went the cigarette and wide
open Mrs. Ventnor's month.
"Oh, and yon never told mo!"
"What's the matter? You're, surely
not afraid of ghosts? Yes, this little
honse first won me by its bloody rec-
ord. '' And she leaned her elbows on the
table, letting her finger tips meet and
glancing into the shadowy corners.
Within its walls a revolting, oold
blooded mnrder was committed years
ago. There, don't look horrified; the
place is warranted not haunted. Will
yon hear the story? It's very short"
Go on. It only needed this to con-
That I am crazy? Very good. Bless
yon, I don't mind. I heard of this house
quite by chance. I took pains to learn
all the details. A little more than ten
years ago an elderly bachelor who lived
here alone was found dead on the floor
of his chamber, a knife sticking in his
heart. The reason for the murder, how
and by whom it was committed, will
forever remain a mystery. Nobody in
the neighborhood knew him but the peo-
ple who lived noxt door, and they had
not. seen or heard anything suspicions.
Doors and windows were all secured
from the inside, nothing was disturbed,
nothing, as far as could be ascertained,
"Clearly the crime had been commit-
ted by some person in the house. Yet
the gardenor, a faithful, stammering
old man who slept in a room on the
ground floor, and the stupid German
maid who stumbled npon her master's
body when she carried his hot water in
the morning, were beyond suspicion, and
it was impossible from the position of
the body and the force of the blow that
the man could have killed himself. It
was relegated to the limbo of unfath-
omed mysteries. The people next door
left a scene that had become unpleasant,
and this house was closed. For ten years
it remained practically vacant. I heard
of it, saw it, Jell in love with that
crooked old elm in tho middle of the
garden, and here I am."
"What room was the body found in?"
And Mrs. Ventnor rose suddenly, a lit-
tle catch iu her voice.
"In mine, of course."
"I thought so. It's uncanny, it's hor-
rible. This cultivation of a diseased
craving for abnormal sensations will be
your ruin. You run away from men
who persecute you with love to whet
your perverted imagination by living in
a haunted house."
"Some people like red pepper," Mar-
ian said coolly as she led the way out.
"But yon must listen to me."
Marian swung around suddenly and
laid her hand on her protesting lips.
"No more of ghosts tonight. Or,
come, I will exorcise them. "
She swept into the little library, Mrs.
Ventnor following, her chubby shoul-
ders shivering a little, her mouth pursed
up in a pout.
"It's weeks since I have touched it. "
There was a note of tenderness in Mar-
ian's voice, like a mother's in speak-
ing of a favorite child. "Como, my
one love. Ah, what delightful hours
we will spend together here!"
She lifted a violin from its case and
rested her chin lovingly on it, the bow
drooping in her hand. After this mo-
ment's pause she raised her arm with n
sweep of potent grace, pr ised her body
restfully and sent tho first notes of Ru-
binstein's "Melodie In F" trembling
through the silence.

105 North Dixon,
It was long past 10 when Hugh Lar-
remore turned into Macedon place that
night. The day had been long and more
than usually dreary. He had spent some
heavy hours in the shaded chambers of
wealthy patients and in the dirty cor-
ners of the town where disease held the
same grim dominion. The faces of the
dying had f^lt the caress of his hand.
Ho had listened in silent pain to futile
prayers for life, dear life, from lips
growing cold. It had been a hard win-
ter, and a low, sluggish fever was ev-
There are physicians who operate on
these wonderful bodies of ours without
much thought beyond the mechanism of
the machine,..who saw or cut after the
manner of a skillful carpenter, but to
whom the unexplained departure of the
spark that animates the flesh presents
no astounding secret to cause a mo-
ment's sadness or wonderment Hugh
was not one of these. He had felt many
failing heartbeats, had closed many eye
lids when all work was done, but never
without that awfnl, despairing con-
sciousness of human littleness which
knows nothing of the how or why of
the beginning or the end of life. That
was why he was sad tonight It had
been a hard day.
From his boyhood those who had
known Hugh Larremore best had proph-
esied great things of him. He was
more than a successful physician in a
town adjacent to the metropolis. His
books were known by people who had
never seen him. His heart was large
enough, his understanding deep enough,
his humanity intense enough for more
aims than one. He was 80 now. But al-
though he had lived within himself
and had sent the fruits of his labor into
the world, though older and more ex-
perienced men in his profession were
glad to meet him on equal ground, he
was dissatisfied, restless. In his hands
there seemed nothing bnt leaves. There
was so much still to be done; so little
time to do it in; so little to do it with.
His face was thoughtful, a little old-
er than his years. The thick, black
locks just touched with froet, which be
was in the habit of nervously throwing
back, added to this impression. He was
clean shaven, and his expressive mouth,
full and curved, but without a suspi-
cion of coarseness, was marked in re-
poee by an expression of gentle strength.
His eyes under forceful brows were lu-
minous and convincing, capable of ex-
pressing great fire and passion, hut usu-
ally heavy with s dreamy pathos that
expressed something of the deep, silent,
gentle soul of the man; one with per-
haps stern ideas of justice, yet very lm-

puisive, very tender.
It had stopped raining now. The sky
was a lowering mass of reddish vapor,
and the moon, plunging behind it,
peeped out at intervals in a hazy circle
with a suspicious and unfriendly eye.
Larremore lifted his face to the clam-
my caress of the fog as he strode along
buttoned to the chin, his case of instru-
ments in his hand. As he neared his
home he raised his tired eyes and saw a
light from an upper window descending
like a vaporous staircase into the silent
"Jenny is still up," he thought, and
then gave vent 4o a low exclamation of
dismay. "Oh, yes, she is waiting to
scold ma This was the night of Mrs.
Elliston's party. She will say that I
should have como and that I could liav^
come. She will not understand. How
very unreasonable women are!"
Obeying the sort of instinct that
makes a person take unheeded steps at
the proper distances apart in a familiar
neighborhood, he followed the light
without glancing at the house. But
when he had unlatched and thrown
open the door he stood still in amaze-
ment, an expression on his face like a
man suddenly awakened from sleep.
This was not his home. This richly
toned hall, only dimly revealed in the
leaping firelight, he had never seen be-
fore. Ah, yes, of course, he remembered
now. This was the other house, and the
mysterious tenants had evidently ar-
rived. He was half disposed to laugh
at his ridiculous mistake, as he quietly
drew back, hoping to retreat unseen.
But this was not to be, for from the
depths of a great chair before the fire a
woman rose slowly.
"I beg your pardon," he heard a
trailing voice say, with a touch of impa-
There was a crack! ' of a match, and
u cluster of candles on the high mantel
beside her became a semicircle of twin-
kling lights. Hugh opened his lips to
make a hurried excuse, looked at her
with a new interest and remained si-
His mystification and embarrassment
at his mistake were conquered by tho
wonder of her beauty. Tr dazzled and
impressed him like some music that
haunts the memory from tho first strain
until its repetition makes it part of our-
He had only the vaguest idea of de-
tails, but after the scenes in which his
day had been spent, after deformity,
ugliness, bitterness, death, this girl in
her white gown, with the star twinkling
in the fine abnndaneo of hair drawn
back from her low brow, was like an
angel of light These were his thoughts.
What he said was quite different:
"Pray exense ma I live next door. I
mistook tho house."
Sho graciously nodded, a smile al-
most friendly growing on her lips as
she continued to gaze at him.
Hngh hurriedly lifted bis hat and re-
As ho walked down the path and laid
his hand upon the latch of his own gate
he felt that he was tired no longer. His
body was weary, bnt somehow his brain
seemed refreshed. Only a false step that
had brought him to a now neighbor's
door, only a momentary glance into a
woman's face, and a flood of new im-
pressions made him glad, he could not
define why. It was perhaps only the un-
expected occurring in a restricted, busy
life that captured his imagination. Or
it might be a sense of having stood face
to face with a woman not cut after the
ordinary pattern, as were most of those
he knew. Whoever she was, from what-
ever part of the world she had come to
make her home beside him, she was
very different from tho other residents of
Macedon place, and, in some indefina-
ble way, from any woman he had ever
The light was out in his own hall,
but his dog, waiting for him on the
mat, rose with a welcoming whine and
rubbedhimself against his master's legs.
"JaSir, old man," and Hugh stooped
to stroke him, "I'm late and tired and
hungry. Good dog. Come along. "
. He hung up his coat and hat and
walked down the hall to the dining
room. The light was lowered to an op-
pressive dimness. The fire was a mass
of gray ashes except for some expiring
cinders. The table was set for a solitary
supper, and in a rocker before the fire,
her slippered feet on the fender, sat a
young woman, her pale hair rumpled,
streaks of tears on her cheeks and
"Moths," face downward, cm her lap.
Hugh went over, half stooped to kiss
her, then drew back. He saw she was
asleep, and folding his arms he stood
with his grave, gentle eyes fastened up-
on her faoa How like a child she was!
