With these thoughts, Abbott met the

had endured in the midst of many, j
Robert was in no pacific mood, and

that I'm going to see that you don’t!"
For a moment Clinton was silent;
then he said in desperation: "Where
is your nice dark alley? Come on,
then, let’s get in it!"
When they were safe from interrup-
tion, Clinton resumed: "You tell me
that Frau wants that secret kept? I'd
think she’d want it told everywhere.
This secret Is nothing at all but the
wrong that was done Fran and her
mother. And since you are so frank
about how you like Fran, I'll follow
suit and say that I have asked Grace
Noir to marry me, and 1 know I'll

"Confound your life and death! My
business is life and dentil, too.”
At that moment, a light was ‘urned
on in Gregory’s library, and Grace
Nolr was seen to pass the window.
Abbott's hand tightened on the oth-
er's arm, as he urged, "Down that at
ley, a nice dark place for talking—"
“’Nice dark,’ be hanged!" growled
Robert. What business can you have
with me that wouldn’t wait tilt morn
ing? Look here, I'm desperate!”
"So am I,” retorted Abbott. "Bob,
you’ve been to Springfield.”
Robert Clinton snatched open the
what wrong Mr. Gregory did Frail!
"Didn't he marry Fran’s mother
when he was a college chap in Spring-
field. and then desert her? Didn’t he
marry again, all hough his first w ife—
Fran's mother—was living, and hadn’t
been divorced? Don't he refuse to ac-
knowledge Fran as his daughter, mak-
ing her pass herself off as flit- daugh-
ter of some old college chum ’ That's
what he did, your choir-leader! I'd
like to see that baton of his laid over
his back; I’d like lo lay it, myself."
It was impossible for Abbott to re-
ceive all this as a whole; he took up
the revelations one at a time. "Is it
possible I hat Fran Is Mr. Gregory’s

"I’m sorry for Mrs. Gregory," Rob-
ert allowed, "but Grace Nolr is more
to roe than any other woman on earth.
You don’t see the point. When I think
of a girl like Grace Nolr living under
the same roof with that—that—”
"Mr. Oregory," Abbott supplied.
“—And she so pure, so high, so much
above us. . . . It makes me craiy.
And all the time she’s been breathing
the same air, she’s thought him a
Moses In the Wilderness, and us noth-

lieving in that jelly pulp, that steel
engraving in a Family Bible! No, I

out of his spider’s web.”
"I see your point of view.’’
“You do if you have eyes. Think
of that perfect, angel—but just say
Grace Nolr and you've called all the
virtues. And her in his house!—”
“You still believe in angels?’’ In-
quired bbott gravely.
"Yap; and devils with long sort-of-
curly hair, ml pretty womanish faces,
and voices like molasses."

"Bob, if I assure you that Miss
Noir will never spend another day
under his roof, will you agree to
keep this discovery to yourself?"
"You can't make no such assurance.
If she ain't put wise to what branch
of the animal kingdom he twigs to.
she’ll not leave his roof."
"Bob, if she leaves that house In the
morning, for ever, won't you agree to
silence, for Mrs. Gregory’s sake—and
because Fran asks it?”
“Fran’s another angel, bless her
heart! But you can't work it."
“Leave it. to me. Bob. I’ll be guided
by the spur of the moment."
"I need a bookkeeper at my store,"
Robert said, ruminating.
"I promise you that Miss Noir will
soon be open to offers."
"See here, Abbott, I can’t afford to
lose any chances on this thing. I’m
going to see the feathers fly. No—I
don’t want Mrs. Gregory to learn about
it, any more than you or Fran; but
I'll limit the thing to Grace—”
"She'd tell Mrs. Gregory."
"Don't you say anything against
Grace Noir, Abbott, for though you are
“I say nothing against her; I say
only that she’s a woman."
“Well," Clinton reluctantly agreed,
"I reckon she is. I’ll tell you what
I’ll do. I’ll go with you into that
wolf's den, and I’ll let you do all the
talking; and if you can manage things
in half an hour—just thirty minutes
by my watch—so that Grace leaves
there tomorrow, I'll leave you to steer
things, and it’s mum for keeps. Hut

don't wane to say one word to that—

"Half an hour will do the business,”
said Abbott stoutly. "Come!"
“Be sure to call for Mr. Gregory by
himself,” said Robert, as they walked
swiftly back to the Gregory residence.
"If Grace comes into the room while
we're talking, or Mrs. Gregory—”
If they do," Abbott said quickly,
"you are not to utter one word, not
one, about Springfield—you under-
stand? It’s a bargain, and I shall hold
you to your word of honor."
"For half an hour I won’t say a
word," Clinton declared, "unless it’s

descended the hall stairs.
Mrs. Gregory was softly playing an
old hymn, when he discovered her
presence in the brilliantly lighted par-
lor. Grace was expecting a visit from
Clinton and had made the room cheer-
ful for his coming, and Mrs. Gregory,
looking in and finding no one present,
had sunk upon the stool before the
piano. She did not see her husband,
for her face was bent low as she feel-
ingly played, "I Need Thee Every
Gregory, well-nigh overwhelmed
with the realization of what he meant
to do, grasped the door for support.
Presently he spoke, brokenly, "Lucy.
how true that m—we do, Indeed, need
Him every hour.”
She did not start at his voice, though
his presence had been unsuspected.
She raised her serious eyes, and ob-
served his haggard face. "Mr. Greg-
ory, you are ill."
“No—the light hurts my eyea." He
turned off the lights and drew a chair
near her. The room was partly re-
vealed by an electric arc that wung
at the street corner—its mellowed
beams entered the open window.
"Lucy, I have something very impor-
tant to say o you.”
Her fingers continued to wander
among the keys, making he '.yarn
barely audible, then letting it die
away, only to revived.
"Lucy, ' have never .oken of this
before, but it ias seemed to me for
a long time that we have andered
rather far apart—yes, very far apart.
We sit close together, alone, our bands

ferent worlds. T>o you ever feel that
She ceased playing abruptly, and
answered almost in a whisper, "Yes."
“Perhaps It is my fault,” .aid Greg-
ory, “although 1 know that if you had
taken more interest in what interests
me, if you had been true to the Faith
as I have tried to he—"
“I have been true to you,” said Mrs.
"Of course—of course—there is no
question of our being true to each
other. I feel that I am not wholly to
blame. Lucy, it has been my fault
and it has been your fault—that is
how I look at it."
There was silence, then she said,
"There seems nothing to be done.”
"How do you mean? You speak as

She rose abruptly, saying, “And its

He had risen, and now in blank
amazement, he stared at her, repeat-
ing, "You will not agree to it? To

subject have 1 brought up?”
"It is very true that we have drifted
roo far apart to be as we were in the
beginning. But there Is still some

shall cling to as long as 1 can. I mean

ing back, "then somebody has told you

"I don’t know what you mean," she
returned, apparently without emotion
"What 1 mean is, that I shall never
consent to a divorce.”
"A divorce? Good heavens, Lucy,
are you mad? Do you think I want
a separation because you disown the

She answered gently, “Yes, It seems

During the week spent by Robert
Clinton In search of Fran’s life-secret,
a consciousness of his absence ami its j Such items are not news and their
cause was like a hot iron branding
Gregory's brain. What a mocking fa-
tality, that it should have been Grace
to send Robert on his terrible errand—
an errand which must result in ruin!
Mrs. Gregory would be pitied when
it became known how she. had been de-
ceived; Fran would be pitied because
she was a disowned daughter; Grace
would be pitied for trusting in the in-
tegrity of her employer—but Gregory,
who of all men needed pity most,
would be utterly despised. He did not
think of himself alone, but of his works
of charity—they. too. would fall, In his
disgrace, and Walnut Street church-
even religion itself—would be dis-
credited because of an exposure that
could avail nothing.
Gregory had been too long proclaim-
ing the living God not to feel Him as
a Presence, and in this Presence ha
felt a shuddering fear that could sug-
gest no relief hut propitiation. He as
well as Abbott Ashton had kept him-
self informed of Robert's movements
as far as they were known to Miss 1
Sapphira hence the day of Robert's *
return found his thought of atonement
at its most frenzied stage.
As evening wore on, he made up his
mind to the fatal step
