Hut slowly as he looked ft curious
change came over him. She was the
same Nan Bryerson, bareheaded, bare
legged, with the same tousled mat of
dark hair, and the same childish In
difference to a whole frock. And yet
she was not the same. The subtle dif
ference, whatever It was, made him get
up and offer to shake hands with her—
and he thought It was the newly-made
vows constraining him, and took cred
"You can revile me as much as you
like now, Nan,” he said, with prldefol
humility. “You can't make me mad
any more, like you used to. I'm older
now, and—and better, I hope. I shall
never forget that you have a precious
soul to save.”
Her response to this was a scoffing
laugh, shrill and challenging. Yet he
could not help thinking that It made
her look prettier than before.
“You can laugh as much as you want
to; but I mean It,” he Insisted. “And,
besides, Nan—of all the things that
I've been wanting to come back to,
you're the only one that Isn't changed."
And again he thought It was righteous
guile that was making him kind to her.
"D ’ye reckon you shorely mean that,
Tom Gordon?" she said; and the Ilf
which lent themselves so easily to
scorn were tremulous. She was Just
his age, and womanhood was only a
step across the threshold for her.
"Of course I do. Let me carry your
bucket for you.”
She had hung the little wooden plg-
gln under the drip of the spring and
It was full and running over. But
when he had lifted It out for her, she
rinsed and emptied It.
"I Just set it there to cool some,” she
explained. “I’m goln’ up to Sunday
Rock afte' huckleberries. Come and
go 'long with me. Tom.”
He assented with a willingness as
eager as It was unaccountable. If she
had asked him to do a much less rea
sonable thing, he waa not sure that he
could have refused.
And us they went together through
the wood, spicy with the June fra
grances, questions like those of the
boyhood time thronged on him, and he
welcomed them as a return of at least
one of the vanished thrills—and waa
grateful to her.
When they were fairly under tho
overhanging cliff face of Sunday Rock,
she darted away, laughing at him over
her shoulder, and daring him to follow
her along a dizzy shelf half-way up
the crag; a narrow ledge, perilous for
a mountain goat.
This, as he remembered later, was
the turning-point In her mood. In Im
agination he saw her try It and fall;
saw her lithe, shapely beauty lying
broken and mungled at the cliffs foot;
and In three bounds he had her fast
locked In his restraining arms. Shu
strove with him at first, like a wres
tling boy, laughing and taunting him
with being afraid for himself. Then—

did not know precisely what happened.
Suddenly she stopped struggling and
lay panting In his arms, and quite us
suddenly he released her.

merging wave of tenderness, “I didn't
