THE WAY MADGE STOPPED DR.
' PETTIT'S ACCUSATIONS.
I stared with incredulous amaze
ment at Dr. Pettlt, as Claire Fos
ter's name came ; from , his thin
lips. There "was a curious slow
ness of intonation in Ms voice,. be
traying the bitterness which was
bis f award the .beautiful, breezy.

young western girl to whom he
had been so devoted the summer
before.-:'" . .-" , -:- .
. "You must be mad," V said
firmly, although his accusation
against Dicky, absurd as it peemed
had set tiny hammer of memory
beating upon my brain, and I re
called incidents of the summer be
fore, trifling enough in themselves
but which, in the light of the phy
sician's startling assertion I pull
ed myself up short at this point
and finished ray answer unflinch
ingly. "If you are not, then your
statement is an insult both to Miss
Poster ; and i my husband."
- A slow tide of dark red rose in
his sallow cheeks, and his teeth
closed on his lower lip so strong
ly that I saw a fleck of crimson
upon it. That he wa making a
mighty effort to control his tem
per was patent, and despite the
disquiet which his . query .had
brought, I felt an unholy curiosity
to see whether he would succeed
or fail in his struggle, to master
"You Presume Too Greatly."
"I am not mad ," he said
slowly at last. "But you are."
He stopped abruptly and went
on after an Instant more rapidly.
"You always have believed that
dastardly husband of yours, no
matter what evidence was brought
to you," he said. "If you had as
serted yourself years ago he might
not now be exercising1 hig damn
able fascinations upon a foolish
young girl, who "
I sprang to my-feet -again, my
patience at an end, and rushed
past the excited physician before
he could stop .me, pausing only
with my hand upon the doorknob.
"I will listen to this nonsense
no longer." I said, remorselessly
smothering a longing within me
! to hear him to an end. ' "You pre
sume too greatly. Dr. Pettit, even
upon your long friendship and as
sociation with us. There are
things which I permit no one to
say. and what you have Just inti
mated is one of them." '
"And let me add : something
else!" ! exclaimed. "Miss Poster
J is a thoroughly good and charming
girl,' and I like her, but she is no
shrinking wood side violet. She
is in no danger from the fascina
tions of any man unless ' she
chooses to be fascinated."
I fairly slammed the door be
hind me as Dr. Pettit, with frown
ing and distorted face, started to
ward me. - Then, utterly regardless
of my rudeness. I ran upstairs- to
my own ' room, and locked - the
door, leaving him to find his own
way out, or wait for Lillian to
usher him out, as he pleased. I
heard her quick footsteps outside
my door, and counted the progress
down the stairs. Then for several
minutes, while I lay prone upon
my bed trying to shut from my
mind the things Dr. Pettit had
said, there was silence.- ?
What Memory Brought.
The violent closing of the front
door brought me to a sitting po
sition, and I listened breathlessly
to Lillian's returning footsteps.
She halted for an Instant outside
my room and I knew that I had
but to whisper her name to bring
her ready sympathy and resource
fulness to me. But I had no doubt
that Dr. Pettit had told her what
he had just endeavored to relate
to me, and I felt that I could not
bear to face her possible knowl
edge of Dicky's derelictions until
I should have scourged my soul
to sanity and self-control. So I
lay motionless until I heard the
.closing of her door, and then I
let my tortured nerves have the
reliefer tears. I sobbed until I
was too exhausted to do anything
I i awakened the next morning
to find the sun streaming in my
windows. For a long moment I
lay vaguely wondering what it was
that was so oppressing my spirit.
Then the remembrance of Dr. Pet
tit's accusation, coupled with the
humiliating realization of Dicky's
long epistolary silence, swept over
me, and my spiritual battle of the
night before was on again.
Claire Foster, I mentally vSs
loned her as I had seen her the1
summer before slender, lithe,
dark, with lustrous black eyes,
brimming with merriment, with a
face which so narrowly escaped
beauty that most people would
credit her with the possession,
with high spirits, a sparkling wit,
and a dash of deviltry.
She was so essentially "mod
ern" in her ideas and behavior
that I was sure the little formality
of a man being a benedict would
matter no whit to her, it she were
