"1 cwi't valt till then. I've Wn want

Nobody could even point bUn out to me.
Where Im tie gone? I wnnt to are blru
now." " -
"Want to dlHclmrKO bin) again?" aald
a voice from the door, and, turning,
they aaw tlmt Mr. Martin stood tbere
'No," aald Harkleaa. "I want to give
blni the Herald. Do you know where
be 17" '
Mr. Martin stroked bis beard delib
erately. "The person you apeak of
hadn't ought to lie very burd to find In
Carlow, and-wcll, maybe when found
you'll wnnt to put a kind of a codicil
to tlmt deed to the Herald. The com
mittee waa rccklcsa enough to hire that
carriage of your by the day, and Keat
ing and Wrrcn Smith are sitting In it
up at the corner with their feet on the
cushions to show bow used they are
to riding around with four white horse
every dny In the week. It'e waiting
till you're ready to go out to Brlacoc'.
There's, an hour before auppcr time, and
you can talk to young Flabee all you
want He'a out there."
Tbe first word Warren Smith spoke
had lifted tbe veil of young Flabee'a
duplicity; bad shown John with what
One intelligence and supreme delicacy
and sympathy young FUbee bad work
ed for blni, had understood bliu nnd
bad made him. If tbe open attack on
McCuue hau been mude and tbe damna
tory evidence published In llarklcaa'
own pnper while Harklcss himself wa
a candidate and rival be would have
felt dishonored. The McCuue paper
could have been used for Halloway'a
benefit, but not for bis own, and yonng
Flsbee bad understood and bad saved
blm. It was a point of honor that many
would Lave held fluical and Inconsist
ent, but one that young Flabee bad
comprehended waa vital to llarklcs.
And this was the man be bad dis
charged like a dishonest servant tbe
man who bud thrown wbat (In Carlow
eyea) waa riches Into bis lap, the man
who bad made hi paper and who hud
made bliu and saved blm. Ilarklca

As tbo barouche drove up to the
brick bouse be made out through tbe
trees a rctrcatlve flutter of skirts on
the porch, and tbe thought crossed his
mind that Minnie bad flown Indoora
to give some final directions toward the
preparation of the banquet But when
the barouche baited at the Kate be was
surprised to see her waving' to him
from the steps, while Tom Meredith and
Mr. Bcnco and Mr. Boswell formed a
little court around ber. Llge Wllletts
rode up on horseback at tbe same mo
ment, and the Judge was waiting In
front of the gate. 1 lark less stepped out
of the barouche and took bis band. "I
was told young Flsbee waa here."
"Young Flsbee la here," said the
Mr. Flsliee enmo around tbo corner
of the bouse and went toward Hark
less. "FiHbee," cried tbe latter, "where
la your nephew?"
Tbe old man took bis band In both
bis own and looked blm between tbe
eyes and thus stood while there was a
long pause, tbe others watching them.
"You must not say that I told you," he
said at last. "Go Into tbe garden."
But when Hnrkless' step crunched
the garden there was no one tbere.
Asters were blooming In beds between
the green rosebushes, and their many
fingered hands were flung open in wide
surprise that be should expect to find
young Flsbee tbere. It was Just before
sunset Birds were gossiping In tbe
sycamores on tho bank. At the foot of
the garden, near the creek, there were
some tall hydrangea bushes, flower
laden, nnd beyond them one broad
shaft of sun 6 mote the creek bends for
a mile in that flat land aud crJed tbe
garden like a bright taut drawn veil.
Harkless passed the bushes and step
ped out into this gold brilliance. Then
be uttered a cry and stopped. Helen
was standing beside the hydrangeas
with both bauds pressed to ber face
and ber eyes cast on tbe ground. She
bad run away as far as she could run.
There were high fences extending
down to the creek on each side, and tbe
water waa beyoud.
"You!" be said. "You! Your
She did not lift her eyes, but began
to move away from him with little
backward steps. When she reached
the bench on the bank she spoke with
a quick intake of breath and In a voice
he almost failed to bear, tbe merest
whisper, and her words came so slow
ly that sometimes minutes separated
them. "Can yon will you keep me on

now why I wouldn't resign? You

"The one thut came to you this
"P'd vou send me one?"
"It did not come to me."
."But what wa It about?"
"It was signed," be said; "It wat

way, not lifting the downcast lashes.
Her band,, resting upon the back of the
bench, waa shaking, fche put It behind J
uer. 'men ner eyes were iinea a nine,
and, though they did not meet his, be
sow them, and glory sprang Into be
ing in bis heart. Her voice fell still
lower, and two heavy tears rolled down
ber check. 'It waa signed," she whis
pered, "It was signed-'H. Flsbee.' "
He began to tremblo from bead to
