Officials of the company were still
uncertain as to the exact number of

They believed that the total was
between 90 and 95.
Rescue men who had attempted to
count the bodies they stumbled over
in the workings declared they count

probably that a few more men perished
In the unexplored chambers.

CHAPTER IX Continued.
All the evening I was watching and
listening with her eyes and her ears
everything he did, everything he said.
I so wanted Mother to like him I I so
wanted Mother to see how really fine
and splendid and noble he was. But
that evening Why couldn't he stop
talking about the prizes he'd won,
and the big racing car he'd Just or
dered for next summer? There' was
nothing fine and splendid find noble
about that. And were his finger nails
always so dirty?
Why, Mother would think
Mother did not stay In the room all
the time ; but she was In more or less
often to watch the game ; and at half
past nine she brought in some little
cakes and lemonade as a surprise. I
thought It was lovely; but I could
have shaken Paul when he pretended
to be afraid of It, and asked Mother
If there was a stick In It.
The Idea Mother! A stick 1
I Just knew Mother wouldn't like
that. But If she didn't, she never
showed a thing In her face. She Just
smiled, and sutd no, there wasn't any
stick In It; and passed the cakes.
When he had gone I remember I
didn't like to meet, Mother's eyes, and
I didn't ask her how she liked Paul
Mayhew. I kept right on talking fast
about something else. Some way, I
didn't want Mother to talk then, for
fear of what she would say.
And Mother didn't say anything
about Paul Mayliew then. But only a
few days later she told me to in
vlte him again to the house (this time
to a chafing-dish supper), and te ask
Carrie Heywood and Fred Small, too.
We had a beautiful time, only again
Paul Mayhew didn't "show off" at all
In the way I wanted him to though
he most emphatically "showed off" in
his way! It seemed to me that he
bragged even more about himself and
his belongings than he had before.
And I didn't like at all the way he
ate his food. Why, Father didn't eat
like that with such a noisy mouth,
and such a rattling of the silverware!
And so It went wise mother that
she was ! Far from prohibiting me to
have anything to do wltn Paul May
hew, she let me see all I wanted to
of him, particularly In my own home.
She let me go out with him, properly
chaperoned, and she never, by word
or manner, hinted that she didn't ad
mire his conceit and braggadocio.
And It all came out exactly as I
suspect she had planned from the be
ginning. When Paul Mayhew asked to
be my escort to the class reception in
June, I declined with thanks, and Im
mediately afterward told Fred Small
I would go With him. But even when
I told Mother nonchalantly, and with
carefully averted eyes, that I was go
ing to the reception with Fred Small
even then her pleasant "Well, that's
good!" conveyed only cheery mother
Interest; nor did a hasty glance Into
her face discover so much as a lifted
eyebrow to hint, "I thought you'd
come to your senses sometime !"
Wise little mother that she was !
In the days and weeks that followed
(though nothing was said) I detected
a subtle change In certain matters,
however. . And as I look back at It
now, I am sure I can trace Its origin to
my "affair" with Taul Mayhew. Evi
dently Mother had no Intention of run
ning the risk of any more courtships;
also evidently she Intended to know
who my friends were. At all events,
the old Anderson mansion soon be
came the rendezvous of all the boys
and girls of my acquaintance. And
such good times as we had, with
Mother always one of us, and ever pro
posing something new and Interesting!
And because boys not a boy, but
boys were as free to come to the
house as were girls, they soon seemed
to me as commonplace and matter-of-course
and free from sentimental in
terest as were the girls.
Again, wise little mother 1
But, of course, even this did not
prevent my falling In love with some
one older than myself, some one quite
outside of my own circle of Intimates.
My especial attack of this kind
came to me when I was barely eigh
teen, the spring I was being gradu
ated from the Andersonvllle High
school. And the visible embodiment
of my adoration was the head master,
Mr. Harold Hartshorn, a handsome,
cleanshaven, well-set-up man of (I
should Judge) thirty-five years of age,
rather grave, a little stern, and very
But how I adored him t How I hung
npon his every word, his every glance !
How I maneuvered to win from him a
few minutes' conversation on a Latin
verb or a French translation! How I
thrilled if he bestowed upon me one
of his Infrequent smiles I How I
grieved over his stern aloofness 1
Fj the end of a month I had evolved
this: his stern aloofness meant that
he had been disappointed In lovel his
melancholy wis loneliness his heart
was breaking. How I longed to help,
to heal, to cure 1 How I thrilled at the
thought of the love and companionship
I could give him somewhere In a rose
embowered cottage far from the mad
ding crowd ! (He boarded at the An
dersonvllle hotel alone now.) If only
he could see It as I saw It. Tf only by
some sign or token he could know of
the warm love that was his but for
the asking ! Could he not see that no
longer need he pine alone and unap
preciated in the Andersonvllle hotel?
Why, in just a few weeks I was to
be through school. And then
On the night before commencement
Mr. Harold Hartshorn ascended our
front steps, rang the bell, and called
for my father. I knew because I was
upstairs In my room over the front
door ; and I saw him come up the walk
and heard him ask for Father.
Oh, Joy I Oh, happy day I He knew.
He had seen It as I saw It. He had
come to gain Father's permission, that
he might be a duly accredited suitor
for my hand !
During the next ecstatic ten min
utes, with my hand pressed against my
wildly beating heart, I planned my
wedding dress, selected with care and
discrimination my trousseau, furnished

why Father did not send for me. Then
the slam of the screen door downstairs
sent me to the window, a sickening
terror within me.
Was he going without seeing me,
his future bride? Impossible!.
Father and Mr. Harold nartshorn
stood on the front steps below, talking,
In another minute Mr. Harold Harts
horn had walked away, and Father
had turned back on to the pluzza.
As soon as I couid control my shak
ing knees, I went downstairs.
Father was in his favorite rocking
chair. I advanced slowly. I did not

I soon found that she loved to talk

Needless to say she had a very good

Just had with the portrait of a certain
New York society woman. She said
that It was Just going to "make" Jerry ;
that he could have anything he wanted
I saw Jerry myself during the East
er vacation of my second year In col
lege. Helen Invited me to go home
with her, and Mother wrote that I
might go. Helen had been home with
me for the Christmas vacation, and
Mother and Father liked her very
much. There was no hesitation, there
fore, In their consent that I should
visit Helen at Easter time. So I went.
Helen lived In New York. Their
home was a Fifth avenue mansion with
nine servants, four automobiles and
two chauffeurs. Naturally such a scale
of living was entirely new to me, and
correspondingly fascinating. From ths
elaborately uniformed footman that
opened the door for me to the awe
some French maid who "did" my hair,
I adored them all, and moved as In a
dream of enchantment. Then cams
Jerry home from a week-end's trip
and I forgot everything else.
I knew from the minute his eyes
looked Into mine that whatever I had
been before, I was now certnlnly no
mere "Oh, some friend of Helen's." I
was (so his eyes said) "a dencedly
pretty girl, and one well worth cul
tivating." Whereupon he began at
once to do the "cultivating."
In less than thirty-six hours I was
caught up In the whirlwind of his
wooing, and would not have escaped
It If I could.
When I went back to college he held
my promise that If he could gain the
consent of Father and Mother, he
might put the engagement ring on my
Back at college, alone In my own
room, I drew a long breath, and began
to think. It was the first chance I had
had, for even Helen now had become
Jerry by reflection.
The more I thought, the more fright
ened, dismayed, and despairing I be
came. In the clear light of calm, nne
reasoning, It was all so absurd, so Im
possible! Whnt could I hnve been
thinking of? I must forget Jerry.
I pictured him In Andersonvllle, lo
my own home. I tried to picture hliu
talking to Father, to Mother.
Absurd, What had Jerry to do with
learned treatises on stars, or with the
humdrum, everyday life of a stupid,
small town? For that mutter, what
had Father and Mother to do with
dancing and motoring and painting
society queens' portraits? Nothing.
Plainly, even If Jerry, for the sake
of the daughter, liked Father and
Mother, Father and Mother certainly
would not like Jerry. That was cer
tain. Of course I cried myself to sleep
that night. That was to be expected.
Jerry was the world; and the world
was lost. There was nothing left ex
cept, perhaps, a few remnants and
pieces, scarcely worth the counting
excepting, of course, Father and Moth
er. But one could not always have
one's father and mother. There would
come a time when
Jerry's letter came the next day
by special delivery. He had gone
straight home from the station end be
gun to write to me. (How like Jtrry
that was portlcularly the eneclal
delivery stamp!) The most of his let
ter, aside from the usual lover's rhap
sodies, had to do with plans toi the
summer what we would do together
at the Westons' summer cottage In"
Newport. He said he should run up
to Andersonvllle early very early;
just as soon as I was hack from col
lege. In fact, o that he mlght1net
