II nving come to theae rottclualone, 1
cut the advertlaement carefully out Of
the crumpled paper, and placed It In my
pockethook with portralta of my mother
and Julia. Here were mcmcntoea of the
Ihree women I cared meet tor In th
world my mother Arat, Julia aecond, aud
my myaterioue patient third.
I wa neither In goou aplrtt nor lu
good temper during the neit few daya.
My mother and Julia appeared aatonleh
ed at thia. for I waa nut ordinarily aa
touchy and fractioua aa t allowed myaelf
immediately after my aojouro In Hark.
I waa a.hamcd uf It myaelf, Th new
houne, which occupied their time and
tboiubla ao agreeably, worried me aa
it bad not done before. I made every
poa.ible exeuae nut to lie aeut to it, or
takes to it, acveral ttmea t day.
It waa po.itlvely uereamary that I
ahould run over to Sara thia week-1 bad
given my word to .MUa Ollivler that I
would do ao-but I dared not meutlon
auch a project at home. My mother and
Julia would be up In arm at the Brat
jyllahle I uttered.
What if I could do two patleiita good
at one etnke kill two blrda with on
atone? Captain Carey had a pretty little
yacht lying idle In Hi. Hamtou'a bar
bor, aud a day'i crulaiug would do hint
all the good in the world. Why ahould
he not carry me orer to Bark, when 1
could vlnit my other patient, and nobody
be made mlarrable by :! trip?
"I will make yoo up aome of your old
medicine," I aald, "but I atrongly rec
ommend yoo to hare a day out on the
water; aeven or eight houra tt any rote.
If the weather keep aa Due aa lt ia now,
it will do you i world of good,"
"It la o dreary alone," lie objected.
"If I could mnniige it," I aniil, ib'lib-

Til ace about It," I anid. "Should yon
mlml where you Halted to?"
"Not at all, not at all, my boy," be
anawered, "ao thnt I get your company.
Yon ahali be akippcr or belm.niau, or
both, If you like."
"Well, then, I replied, "you might take
me over to the Havre Oo.aeliti, to aee
how my patient'a broken arm la going on.
It a a bore there being no realdent med
ical man there at tht moment."
The run over waa ail thut wa could
wihIi. The rockle-ahell of a boat be
longing to the yacht bore me to tbe foot
of the ladder hanging down the rock at
Havre Ooaaelin. A very few tnlnutea
took me to the top of the cliff, and there
lay tbe III tie thatched net like home of
my patient. I haateued forward eagerly.
All wa allent aa I croaeed the atony
cauaewny of the yard. Not a face looked
out from door or window. Mam'acile'a
casement stood a little way open, and
the breeze played with the curtain, flut
tering them like batinvra In a proccaaion.
I dared not try to look in. The house
door waa ajar, and I approached It cau
tlouily. "Thank heaven!" I cried within
myaelf aa I gmed eagerly Into the cot
Hlie waa lying there upon the fern-bed,
half anlccp, her head fallen buck upon
the pillow, and the book aim bud been
reading dropped from her hand, The
whole Interior of the cottage formed a
picture. Tho old furniture of oak, the
neutral tint of the wall and ceiling, and
the deep tone of her green dreaa threw
out Into strong relief tbe graceful shin
ing head and pale face.
I auppose alio became subtly conscloua,
as women always are, that somebody's
eyes were Bxcd upon her, for aha awoka

I almost wished that mother Renouf or
Biuanne Ttrdif had been at hand. But
Miss Ollivler seemed perfectly composed,
as much so as a child. Hho looked like
one with her cropped head of hair, and
frank, open face, My own momentary
embarrassment passed away. Tho arm
was going on all right, and ao was moth
er Itenouf's charge, the sprained ankle,
"We must take care you are not lame,"
I said. "You must promise m not to

Her face grew rery grave, os If she
was thinking of some nupleasant topic,
Hhc looked! at me earnestly and quea
tlonlugly. "May I apeak to you with great plain
Bess, Dr, Martin?" iho asked.
"Kpeik precisely what la In your mind
at thia nwiuiut," I replied.
"You are eery, very good to Me," she
aald. holding out her hand to uie, "but
I do not want yon to com more eflrn

very poor. If I were rich," ehe went

.My face felt hot, but I scarcely kuew
what to say. I bungled out an answer,
"I would ot take any money from
you. and I that) com to p you a
of tea aa I can."
"You ar not offended with in, Ir,
Martin?" ah asked, in a pleading tone,
"No," I answered; "but you ar ml.
taken In auppoalug a medical man has no
love tor bis profe.aloa apart from it
protlia. To see that your arm geta prop

fulfill It without any thought or whether
t ahali got paid for It or no,"
"Now," she aald, "I mint let you know
how poor t am. Will you plea tofetch
ni my bog out of my ruout?"
I wa only too glad to obey' her. Thia
seemed to b an opening to a complete
eonttdeuc between tie. Now I cam to
think of It, fortune had favored m In
thus throwing ua together alone.
I lifted th small, light bog very eaaily
- ther could not b many treasure In
It and carried It back to her, ttb took
a key out ef her pocket aud unlocked It
with atime difficulty, but b could not
rai.e the, lid without my help. I took
car ant to offer any aasiatauc until h
asked It. ,
Yea. there were very few poe.lon
In that light trunk, but th Drat glancej
showed me a blue .Ilk dreaa and aealaklu
jacket aud bat. I lifted them out fr
her, and after them a pir of velvet slip
pen, aoilcil, aa If they bad been through
muddy mods. I did not utter a remark.
Iteneath these lay a handsome watch and
chain, a Bo diamond ring and live sover
eign lying Ions In Ibe bog.
"That la all the money I bav lu lb
world," ah aald sadly.
1 laid tbe five sovereign In her wit) nil
white hand, and ahe turned them over,
one after another, with a pitiful look on
her face. I felt fooltab euougb to cry
over them myaelf.
"Dr. Martin," was her unexpected
question after a luug pause, "do you
know what became of my hair?"
"Why?" I asked, looking at her lin
gers running through tbe abort eurla we
bad left her.
"Because that ought to be sold for
somethiug," the said, "I am almost glad
you bad it cut off. My hairdresser told
m one be would give five guineas for a
head of hair like mine, It waa ao loug,
and tha color waa uncommon. Klv
guinea would not be half enough to pay
y .ni. though, I know."
Hlie spoke to simply and quietly that I
did not attempt to remonstrate with her
about her anxiety to pay me,
"Tardif baa It," I aaid; "but of course
he will give It you back agnlu. Hhall 1
aell It for you, luam'ielle?"
"Oh, thnt I just what I could not aak
you!" ah exclaimed, "You see ther i
no one to buy It here, and I hope it may
be a long time before I go away. 1 don't
know, though; that depend upon wbeth
er I can dispose of my things. There la
my sealskin, It cost twenty tlv guinea
last year, and It ought t b worth some
thing. Aud my watch art what a tile
one it la. I should Ilk to aell them all,
every on. Then 1 could atay bcr a
long a the money lasted."
"How much do you pay here?" I inquir
ed, for ahe had taken tne to far Into
counsel thut I felt Ju. tilled In asking
"A pound a week," ah answered,
"A pound a week I" I repented, In
amaaement. "Loes Tardif know that?"
"I don't think ho does," ah said.
"When I had been here a week I gave
Mrs. Tardif a sovereign, thinking per

"I have uo friends," alio answered sor

"I am one," I said, "and Tardif la an
