A Dead Past

CHAPTER XXVI. Continued.)
Bhe was uylng.
Could any otic of thos who watched
Jicr doubt It? Tor the first day, Indeed.
It scented as though the bitterness of
death was nlretdy over. Hut with the
riccelttulnsss of the disease which con
sumed her, she rallied. She came back
to life, ami to a certain amount of
strength; she was able to lie dressed ami
to alt propped with cushion in an arm
chair, before the, fire.. A bright color
tinged her wax like 'check, her eyes
sdionn and glowed with n strange preter
natural brilliancy, nd ret she was going
to die, they all knew It; It was death
robbed of all his horrors death clad In
d beautiful and altogether wonderful
garmcut, but it was death all the same.
Kcpptngton Halt ;m a changed
house. Instead of solitude and silence.
nnd desolate empty rooms, there were the
bushed steps of many feet nloug the pas
Mges, and fire In manr rooms, whore the
raddened little group of friends, who had
rallied about her, had taken up their
quarters, meaning to remain by her till
the end, or at least until her husband
fthould ,como to her. To find Itrictn wa
the difficulty. Rosamond, who had seen
liim last, only knew that he had return
ed to London, and only hoped that he
might lie (hero still. The house In
Iowndes Square was shut up. Hoy
could think of no better plan than to
telegraph to his club. They did so, but
no answer came. The telegram lay there
n whole day, then the lawyer's clerk
called and fetched It, together with sev
eral letters, nnd took It round to his
master's oillce. The lawyer found It the
following morning. According to bis in
structions from his client, he opened It;
then being altogether shocked by Its 1m
pert, and fearing to deal too sudden a
blow to the husband, ho telegraphed the
substance out to Mentone, not to Des
mond, but to his cousin, Kdgar Haikes
A great deal of all too precious time was
thus wasted while this took place.
At Keppingtoo they watched and wait
ed, longing for news. Poor Mrs. Suecur
den's dismay and consternation, upon
learning that the little raakl whom she
had bullied and scolded, was no other
than the wife of her master, was most
pitiable. She lamented her blindness,
nnd walled orer her past conduct In a
fashion that was almost ludicrous. More
especially was her remorso great In the
matter of tho broken crystal goblet.
"To think," she cried, -that I should
hare been so dreadfully angry at her
breaklug that glass goblet, when all the
time It was her own, and she was free
to smash It Into powder if she chose, and
nobody dare say a word I
"I would not be so rery unhappy at
that, Mrs. Succurden," Mid Hosamond,
who happened to be the recipient of her
complaints. "It was certainly not your
fault that Mrs. Desmond chose to fill so
bumble a position in her husband's
house; It is no use regretting the past;
-what wo hare to do now is to see if by
any chance we can save her poor frail
Hut though Uosamond spoke brightly
nnd hopefully, she did not beliere In her
own words. As Hoy entered tho octa
icon room, bearing the small, frail form
that was but a feather weight in his
nrms, she felt that it was Impossible
that In anything so white and fragile the
flame of life should erer blaze up again
Tenderly and gently Hoy put her down
In the big armchair, filled with cush
ions, that bad been prepared far her.
She smiled at him gratefully, but for
some moments she was too exhausted to
apeak. Her breath came quick and
ehort. her bead sank back wearily
against the pillows, and her thin little
baud, which she lifted for a moment
between herself and the fire, foil back
again nervelessly Into her lap. Hoy,
utandlng a moment behind her with wild
anxious eyes fastened upon her, felt all
at once that ho could not Imm r the sight.
There came a great choking lump In bis
throat, a singing In hi ears, and ft
blinding mist before bis eyes. lie tnrned
away swiftly and noiselessly, and left
Presently Kitten looked up. No one
was with her but HoMntoad. Mrs.
IJarle knelt in front of her chair upon
the hearth rug, the red fire glow sdone
upon her beautiful face, and upon the
pitiful, tender eyes whleh she bent upon
the sick girl.
A little while ago, perhaps, Kitten
might bare been startled at the sight of
her, abe might bare shrunk away, turn
ing from her with a great and miserable
Jealousy. Hut she was past all that
now. Nothing surprised her or seemed
wonderful now, nothing eren distressed
her. She looked at her steadfastly, with
those strange eyes, that Hosamond had
likened to a human aoul, and then glanc
ed upward to wbero the colored minia
ture of handsome Hosamond Gray, In
her drooping bearer hat and feather,
mulled down happily upon the two wom
en who bad held Urlan Desmond's heart
"You are Mm. Earlo?" she said softly.
For all answer Hosamond lifted the
wasted fingers for a moment to her lips.
"And you loro Ilrian"
"My dear, all that la past long, long
ngo. Do not trouble yourself about It,"
uhe murmured soothingly.
"Is loro orcr past?" Kitten said
dreamily, almost to herself.
"Yes, yea," broke out Hosamond Im
petuously. "Thank Ood, yes! or else
it wcro too great a burden for a woman
The ready tears rushed into tho elder
woman's eyes, but Kitten's grave eyes
were dry, only alio looked away into the
flro clou and sighed.
"I left him to you," sbo said softly,
after a pause.
"Dear child I" cried Rosamond eager
ly, "if I had only seen you or known
yon, If you had but coino to me, I
would uerer have let you lenre him. In
time the madness would havo died out
of hla heart, nnd hts would haro loved
you, and you only, Is it not a wlfes
Uuty to be ever with her husband?"
Kitten shook her bead, ana a smaii,
if ualio stplo into her face.
"IX you think It was duty I should
have looked for? Ahl no, I was not
good enough. It was only happiness that
I wanted. Oau tho ono make up for the
other? Never, never! When I know
that ho loved you, then I would not stny
to ce the hollow mockery of a Km that
was never mine. I thought I would go,
and that he would bo happier, and I I
could, perhaps, forget."
She spoke very softly and sadly. There
was no cmotlou In her voice. It was as
though she was telling tho story not of
hortelf, but of kouio other woman who
had luved and suffered.
Hosamond crouched before her, hold
ing the two small bauds In her own.
lint tear of pity dropped thickly upon
them. It seemed to her nil too sad nnd
too pathetic, the faithful, childish heart,
that having lots its Illusions, had gotta
away alone to die, sooner than live on
with only a shadow of Its own dead
"And It is I who havo brought you
this woe," she sobbed, with a bitter
self-rcraorse, hMIng her face upon Kit
tens lap. Kittens small, thin hand
rested lightly upon tho dark, bowed
"No, do not say that Once I was.
angry nnd Jealous once I utmost hated
you, but I was wrong, oh, ye, I was
very wrong, for it was unjust. Was
It your fault that he loved you first nnd
best Is It ever a woman's fault? And
tho always has to bear all the punish
ment. Always, always tho sins of tho
man nro laid upon her, as well as the
burden of her own. Oh, yes It Is very
hard, very bard, but It was not your
"Say that you forgive me," pleaded
tho other, clasping tho whlto hands be
tween her own. "It Is true that It was
not my fault. When I came back free
I sent for him, thinking he had kept hli
promises to me, and that he would be
free, too. When he told mo that he was
married It was like a deathblow, at first,
to me; but I sent him back to you. Still,
slnco I have Injured you unconsciously,
say 'Hosamond, I forgive you!'"
She repeated the words in a whisper,
with a little smile:
"Hosamond, I ferglve yon."
And Hosamond kissed her.
"Perhaps some day you will remember,
you and Brian together, that I gavo my
life so that you might be happy."
"No, dearest, you yourself will live
to be happy, and Ilrian will learn to
valuo the treasure he has so nearly lost.
Wo have sent for him. He Is coming;
at any moment he may be here, lle
Heve me, you will bo happy yet."
Hut Kitten only shook her head,
"No. For me there is nothing more,
only sleep. Life's poor play Is over."
The expres train was hurrying north
wards on the Orcat Northern line. The
pace was terrific; fields, villages, towns
even flew by at n lightning speed, for
the train was best of tho day. and there
were but few stoppages between Ixnlon
and York. No one was ever beard to
complain of the speed of this particular
train before: and yet, to-day, there "'as a
passenger In a first-class carriage, who
seemed scarcely to sit still, o great was
bis Irritation at the few brief ami nec
essary stoppages, and so terrible was
his Impatience to be at his Journey's end.
"Two minutes lost In the last half
boar," be muttered angrily.
"They will make It up In the next,"
answered his companion soothingly.
"To think of the days that have been
wasted! If I had only nerer gone out
again to the cursed Hirlera and now I
may be too late!"
"Wo must hopo for the best," answer
ed his friend, but be, too, looked anx
ions and troubled.
In the further corner of tho same car
nage where sat the two cousins was a
gentleman, who now and then cast fur
tire glances at them from behind his
Some little discussion having arisen
previously, concerning tho opening and
shutting of the windows, this gentleman,
after the train bad passed York' and got
upon the branch line, where tbe stop
pages were frequent, and no doubt most
irritating, took an opportunity of addrtMS
Ing himself to Edgar Kalkes, who sat
nearest to blm.
"You are perhaps acquainted with this
part of tbe country, sir?" ,
Edgar replied that he knew it very
well Indeed. Tbe stranger was an Im
mensely tall man, of rough exterior; he
wore a hugo red beard and was bronzed
and battered in appearance, like a man
who bad led a life of much exposure to
very sort of ellinate.
"Perhaps, then," he continued, "you
can kindly inform roe what sort of piaee
"It is a very dull place, sir," replied
"Ah! and tbe accommodation
"Is clean, but very homely nnd un

that is a seeond-rato one."
"Then what I want to know, sir." re
plied the big man, bringing down bis
red fist upon his knee, "is what the douce

of information; she told mo that her mis

Edgar Halkes looked up quickly.
"Oratitley, did you ay?"
"Yes; but who is Grantley? Tho girl
said 'people.' That's easily said. Is
Urantley plural or singular, woman or
man, sir? That's what 1 want to know,
and that's what I am going to see."
"I know a gentleman of tho name of

tatlngly. "Sir Hoy Grantley; if your

Joyed. "Do so, my dear sir, do so by

to hhuselrf. Ami ss be M It. his

At Kepplngton that morning there
wcro anxious hearts who waited with
gloomy forebodings tu seo what the day
would bring forth.
Kitten Uy still In her armchair. She
was too weak now to bo moved. Hosa
mond nnd Hoy took It In turn to watch
by her. Upon the lips of each, as they
paused each other with hushed footsteps
Umh) tho threshold of her room, there
ana ever the same question:
"Will hn to in time?"
And as they stood for one hslf mlnuto
together. Hosamond heard all at onco
the distant sound of wheel upon tho
"Listen, there Is n carriage."
Rosamond stood quite still at the open
door and waited. Soon she perceived a
lumbering one-horse tly that was creep
ing slowly up toward the houw, but, to
her surprise, It came not from the sta
tion, but from quite the opposite direc
tion. She could not Imagine who It
could be bringing. Certainly, bowerer,
it could not bo Ilrian.
Gertrud Talbot was filled with de
lighted astonishment at the spectacle of
tbe very person whom her Insatiable cu
riosity had been dying to discover.
"My dear. It must be It U she!" sho
cried breathlessly, clutching at Marga
ret (Irantiey's arm, as the tly came slow

"Mrs. IJarle, of course! Then I staks

Then then where Is Hoy?" stam
mered Margaret, bewildered.
Hoy came quickly forward.
"Margaret here?" ho looked from
one to the other In bewilderment.
Col. TrefusU drew Hosamond away.
Hoy took their place In tho open door
way. Uo looked stern and nngry. There
was a frown on his brow, nnd the lines
of his mouth were hard and fixed. Mar
garet had seen him look like that bo
fore. "What Is the meaning of all this?"
ho said, coldly and hardly. "What
brought you here, Margaret, and you,
Mrs. Talbot? Had you not the sense
to keep away from tLls house? What
was Fclieta about to let you come?"
"Oh! don't be angry. Hoy." He was
so like hi father now that It fright
ened her. "Indeed, It was not Felicia"
who sent me; but what do yoH suppose
Felicia will think of you, she who should

back with us. We have ben so anx

Then Hoy answered tier.
"Once and for nil, understand me,
Margaret. Neither Felicia, nor any oth
er woman, will ever be my wife. Once,
long ago, I wanted to marry tho girl I
loved, but you you were worldly and
calculating and you came between me
and her you robbed me of mr loro and
of my hnpplnoss After that, can I evt-r
listen to you ngain or be guided by what
you say to me? As you havo made my

She, the only woman I ever loved, Is In
lior deathbed. Do you think I would
leave her? Go home, Margaret, and re
pent, If you oan. of the evil V"i liave
brought upon me."
Hard words for her to hear from the
boy to whom her life had been devoted.
She bent her hoAd In bitterness.
