'Mt was only in the forepart of last year
that 1 became seriously alarmed, as her laa

and she became so nervous and ao fretful
that if any person spoke to her, it would
make iter crv. ner appemegoi poorer wuu
every month and I did really wonder how
the little thing could live on what site ate.
Her complexion became sallow and assumed
agreemsh hue, and she became what I called
'skin and bones' very thin indeed. This
was her condition some four months ago.
It was at this time that I had taken a few of
the pills, and commencing to get faith in
them I made Emily take tlieut. I say, im
mediately she felt better, porliaps that is not
?uite true, but certainly after the third week
could see an improved condition in her,
and this improvement continued up to tin
second month, slowly but surely. Then the
improvement of the child became marked,
her appetite returned and grew better with
every day, ahe commenced to fatten up, the
became more cheerful and lively and her
nervousness at times left her altogether.
"In the lsst two weeks her complexion

"I aaid I mi a prisoner, gentlemen,"
he went on bitterly, "but that ain't

tlemen, for two mules and a broken
wagon. But I'm bare, genuemen, aa x
waa tharl"
Whv don't you aee the preaident
about itr asked a bystander in affect
ed commiseration. .
Mr. Hooker stared contemptuously at
the auc-geatiou, and expectorated his
scornful distent. "Not much I "he aaid.
"But I'm going to aee the man that
carries him and his cabinet in his
breeches pocket Senator Boompolnt
er." Boompointer's a big man," contin
ued his auditor, doubtfully. "Do you
know him?"
"Know him?" Mr. Hooker laughed a
bitter sardonic laugh. "Well, gentle
men, I ain't the kind o' man to go in for
family influence, but," he added with
gloomy elevation, "considerln' he's an
intimate relation of mine by marriage,
I should say I did."
Brant beard no more; the facing
around of his old companion toward
the bar gave him that opportunity of
cuping he had been waiting for. The
defection of Hooker and his peculiar in
ventions were too characteristic of him
to excite surprise, and, although they
no longer awakened his good-humored
tolerance, they were powerless to affect
him in his greater trouble. Only one
thing he learned, that Hooker knew
nothing of his wife being in camp as
a spy. The incidentwould have been too
tempting to escape his dramatic em-
lielli&hment. And the allusion to Sen
ator Boonipointer monstrous as it
seemed In Hooker's mouth gave hima
grim temptation. He had heard of
I .coin pointer's wonderful power; he be
lieved thut Susy would and could help
him, Clarence, whether ahe did or did
not help Hooker. But the next mo
ment he dismissed the idea with a flush
ing cheek. How low had he already
sunk to even think of itl
It had been once or twice in his mind
to seek the president, and, under a
promise of secrecy, reveal a part of his
story. He had heard many anecdotes
of his goodness of heart and generous
tolerance of all things but with this
was joined so said contemporaneous
history a flippancy of speech and a
brutality of directness, from which
Clarence's sensibility shrank. Would
he see anything in hia wife but a com
mon spy on bis army; would he see
anything in him but the weak victim,
like many others, ot a scheming wom
an? Stories were current in camp and
congress of the way that this grim hu
morist had, with an apposite anecdote
or a rugged illustration, brushed away
the most delicate sentiment or the
subtlest poetry, even as he exposed the
sham of the Puritanic morality or of
epicurean ethics. Brant had even so
licited an audience, but had retired
awkwardly amtwith his confidence un
Kpoken before the dark, humorous eyes
that seemed almost too tolerant of bis
grievance. He had been to levees and
his heart had sunk equally before the
vulgarcrowd who seemed to regard this
nan as their own buffoon, or the pom
iiousness of position, learning and dig
nity which he seemed to delight to
choke and disturb.
One afternoon a few days later, in
sheer listlessness of purpose, he found
himself again at the white house. The
president was giving audience to a dep
ulation of fanatics who, with a pathetic
simplicity almost equal to his own pa
thetic tolerance, was urging upon this
ruler of millions the policy of an in
significant score, and Brant listened to
liis patient, practical response of facte
imd logic, clothed in simple but sinewy
English, up to the Inevitable climax
of humorous illustration, which the
young brigadier could now see was nec
essary to relieve the grimness of his
refusal. For the first time Brant felt
the courage to address him, and re
solved to wait until the deputation re
tired. As they left, the gallery he lin
gered in the ante-room for tbe presi
dent to appear. Butashedidnotcome,
afraid of losing his chances, he re
turned to the gallery. Alone in bis pri
vacy and shadow, tbe man he had just
left was standing by a column in mo
tionless abstraction, looking over the
distant garden. But the kindly humor
ous face waa almost tragic with an In
tensity of weariness. Hvery line of
those strong, rustic features wo re
laxed under a burden which even the
long, lank, angular figure overgrown
nnd unfinished as his own west seemed
"to be distorted in its efforts to adjust
itself to, while the dark, deep-set eyes
were abstracted with the vague pres
cience of tbe prophet and the martyr.
Shocked at that sudden change, Braut
felt his cheek burn with shame. And
hewasaboutto break upon that wearied
man's unbending he was about to add
his petty burden to the shoulders ot
this western Atlas. . He drew back si
lently and descended the stairs.
But before he had left the hauM.

ot Senator Boomiiolnter was upon every

that famous dispenser of place and pre

An indescribable feeling, half cynical,
half fateful, came over him. He would
not have been surprised to have seen
Jim Hooker join the throng, wbich now
seemed to him to even dwarf the lonely
central figure that had so lately touched
html He wanted toeacapeltalll
But his fate brought him to the en
trance at the same moment that Boom
pointer was leaving It, and that distin
guished man brushed hastily by him,
as a gorgeous carriage, drawn by two
spirited horses, and driven by a re
splendent negro coachman, dashed up.
It was the Boompolnter carriage.
A f aahionably-flressed, pretty woman,
who in style, bearing, opulent content
ment and Ingenuous self-consciousness
waa in perfect keeping with the slight
ostentation of the equipage, was its
only occupant. As Boompolnter stepped
into the vehicle, her blue eyes fell for
nn instant on Brant A happy child
like pink flush came into her cheeks,
and a violet ray of recognition and mis
chief darted from her eye to his. For
It was Susy I
When Brant returned to his hotel
there waa an augmented respect in the
voice of the clerk as he handed him a
note with the remark that it had been
left by Senator Boompointer's coach
man. He had no difficulty in recogniz
ing Busy's peculiarly Brobdingnagian
schoolgirl hand.
"Kla'uns, I call it real meant I be
lieve you just hoped I wouldn't know
you. If you're a bit like your old self
you'll come right oft here this very
night! I've got a big party on but
we can talk somewhere between the
acta! Haven't I growedl Tell me!
And my! what a gloomy swell the
young brigadier ia! The carriage will
come for you so you have no excuse."
The effect of this simple note upon
Brant was strangely out of proportion
to its triviality. But then it was Susy's
very triviality so expressive of her
characteristic irresponsibility that
had always affected him at such mo
ments. Again, aa at nobles, he felt it re
act against his own ethics. Wusshenot
right in her delightful materialism?
Was she not happier than if she had
been consistently trueto Mrs. Peyton, to
the convent, to the episode ot her the
atrical career, to Jim Hooker even to
himself? And did he conscientiously be
lieve that Hooker or himself had suf
fered for her inconsistency? Nol From
all that he had heard she was a suita
ble helpmeet to the senator, In her so
cial attractiveness, her charming osten
tations, her engaging vanity that dis
armed suspicion, and her lack of re
sponsibility even in her partisanship.
Nobody even dared to hoJl the senator
responsible for her promises, even while
enjoying the fellowship of both, and it
is said that the worthy man singularly
profited by It. Looking upon It merely
as a phase of Washington society, Brant
resolved to go.
The moon waa high as the earring
whirled him out of the still stifling ave
nues towards the soldiers' home a syl
van suburb frequented by cabinet min
isters and the president where the
good senator had "decreed" like Kubla
Khan, "a stately pleasure dome ' to en
tertain his friends and partisans. As
they approached the house tne nib
bling light, like fireflies through the
leaves, the warm nllence broken only by
a military band playing a drowsy waltz
on the veranda, and the heavy odors ot
jessamine in theair, thrilled Brant with
a sense of shame as he thought of his
old comrades in the field. But this wuh
presently dissipated by the uniforms
that met him in the hall, with the pres
ence of some ot his distinguished su
periors. At the head of the stairs, with
a circling background of the shining
crosses and ribbons ot the diplomatic
corps, stood Susy her bare arms and
neck glittering with diamonds, her face
radiant with childlike vivacity, A sig
nificant pressure of her little glove aa
he made bis bow seemed to be his only
welcome, but a moment later ahe
caught his arm. "You've yet to know
him," she said, in a halt whisper; "he
thinks a good deal of himself just like
Jim. But he makes others believe il,
and that's where poor Jim slipped up.
She paused before the man thus char
acteristically disposed of and presented
Brant. It was tbe man he had seen be
fore material, capable, dogmatic. A
glance from his shrewd eyes accus
tomed to the weighing of men's weak
nesses and ambltloiie.uDdufew hurried
phrases apparently satisfied him that
Brant was not at the moment important
or available, and the two men a moment
later drifted easily apart. Brant saun
tered listlessly through the crowded
rooms, half remorsefully conscious
that he had taken some irrevocable
step, and none tbe less assured by the
presence of two or three reporters and
torrespondents who were dogging his
mips or the glances of two or three

dent ly been aroused ny tne .inguler ab
