    The Doetor’S dilemma
"By Hesba Stretton
CHAPTER VI.—(Continued.)
We walked home together. We had a
good deal to talk of during the evening,
and sat tip late. It was midnight before
1 found myself alone In my own room.
I had half forgotten the crumpled paper
In my waistcoat pocket, but now 1
smoothed it out before me ami pondered
over every word. No, there could not be
a doubt that it referred to Mias OUivier.
Why should she have strayed from
home? That was the question. What
possible reason could there have la eit,
strong enough to impel a young and deli­
cately nurtured girl to run all the risks
and dangers of a Hight alone uud unpro­
tected ?
What ought I to do with this adver­
tisement, thrust, as it would seem, pur- i 1
posely under my notice? What was I to
do with the clue? I might communicate
at once with Messrs. Scott an I Brown,
giving them the information they had ad­
vertised for six months before. 1 might
sell my knowledge of Miss Ollivier for
fifty pounds. In doing so I might render
her a great service, by restoring her to
her proper sphere in society. But the
recollection of Tardif's description of her
as looking terrified and hunted recurred
vividly to me. The advertisement put
her age as twenty one. I should not
have Judged her so old myself, especially
since her Imir had been cut short. 1 was
not prepared to deliver her up until 1
knew something more of both sides of
the question.
Settled—that It I could see Messrs.
Scott and Brown and learn something
about Miss (Jllivier's friends, I might be
then able to decide whether I would be­
tray her to them; but I would not write.
Also, that I must see her again first, and
once more urge her to have confidence
In me. If she would trust mo with her
secret, I would be as true to her as a
friend as I meant to be true to Julia.
Iluving come to these conclusions, 1
cut the advertisement carefully out of
the crumpled paper, and placed it in my
pocketbook with portraits of my mother
and Julia. Here were mementoes of the
three women I cared most for in the
world my mother first, Julia second, ami
my mysterious patient third.
"We must take care you are not lame,"
I said. “You must promise me not to
set your foot on the ground, or In any
way rest your weight upon it, till I give
you leave.”
“That means that you will have to
come to see me again,” she said; “is it
not very difficult to come over from
Guernsey ?"
"Not at all," I answered, “it Is quite
a treat to me.”
Iler face grew very grave, as if she
was thinking of some unpleasant topic.
She looked at tne earnestly and ques-
tioningly.
"May I speak to you with great plain­
ness, Dr. Martin?" she asked.
“Speak precisely what is in your mind
at this mommt,” I replied.
“You are very, very good to me,” she
said, holding out her hand to me, "but
I do not want you to come more often
than is quite necessary, because I am
very poor. If I were rich,” sho went
on hurriedly, "I should like you to come
every day—it is so pleasant—but I can
never pay you sufficiently for that long
week you were here. So please do not
visit me oftener than is quite necessary.”
My face felt hot, but I scarcely knew
what to say. I bungled out an answer.
“I would not take any money from
you, and I shall come to see you as
often as I can.”
“You are not offended with me, Dr.
Martin?” she asked, in a pleading tone.
"No," I answered; “but you are mis­
taken in* supposing a medical man has no
love for his profession apart from its
profits. To see that your arm gets prop­
erly well is part of my duty, and I shall

I was neither in good spiritis nor in
good temper during the next few days.
My mother and Julia appeared astonish­
ed at this, for I was not ordinarily as
tom by and fractious as I showed myself
immediately after my sojourn in Sark.
I was ashamed of it myself. The new
house, which occupied their time and
thoughts so agreeably, worried me as
it had uot done before. 1 made every
possible excuse not to be sent to it, or

“Too much!” I said. “You should have

“I conld not talk to Tardif about his

"Besides, it
would not have been too mocb, if I had
only had plenty. But it has made me so
anxious. I did not know whatever I
shsald do when it was all gene. I do not
know now.”
Here was a capital opening for a ques­
tion about her friends.
"You will be compelled to communi­
cate with your family," I said. “Yon

you trust me about your friends?”
“I have no friends," she answered sor­
rowfully. "If I bad any. do you suppose
I should be here?”
“I am one,” I said, “and Tardif is an­
other.”
“Ah, new friends,” abe replied; “but 1
moan real old friends who hare known
you all your life, like your mother, Dr.
Martin, or your cousin Julia. I want
samebody to go to who knows all about
ms. and say to them, after telling them
everything, keeping nothing back at all,
‘Have I done right? What else ought I
to have done?’ No new friend could an­
swer questions like those.”
Was there any reason I could bring
forward to increase her confl lence in
me? I thought there was, and her friend­
lessness and helplessness touched me to
the core of my heart. Yet it was with an
Indefinable reluctance that I brought for­
ward my argument.
"Miss Ollivier,” I said, “I have no
claim of old acquaintance or friendship,
yet it is possible I might answer those
questions, if you conld prevail upon your­
self to tell me the circumstances of your
former life. In a tew weeks I shall be in
a position to show yon more friendship
than I con do now. I shall hare a home
of my own, and a wife, who will be your
friend more fittingly, perhaps, than my­
self.”
“I knew it," she answered, half shyly.
"Tardif told me you were going to mar­
ry your cousin Julia.”
Just then we heard the foldyard gate
swing to behind some one who was com­
ing to the house.
It was an immense relief to see only
Tardif's tall figure crossing the yard
cult to abbreviate Julia; Ja, I had called
her in my rudest schoolboy days. I won­
dered how high Olivia would stand be­
side me; for I had never seen her on her
feet. Julia was aot two inches shorter
than myself; a tall, atiff figure, neither
slender enough to be lissome, nor well-
proportioned enough to be majestic. But
she was very good, uud her pries was far
above rubies.
I visited Sark again in about ten days,
to aet Olivia free from my embargo upon
her walking. I allowed her to walk a lit­
tle way along a smooth meadow path,
leaning on my arm; and I found that she
was a head lower than myself—a beau­
tiful height for a woman. That time
Captain Carey had set me down st the
Havre Gosselin, appointing to meet at
the Creux harbor, which wns exactly on
the oppoeite side of the island. In cross­
ing over to it—a distance of rather more
than a mile—I encountered Julia'a
friends, Emma and Maria Brouard.
"You here again, Martin!” exclaimed
Emma.
“Yes,” I answered; "Captain Carey set
ma down at the Havre Gosselin, and is
gone round to meet me at the Creux.”
“You have been to see that young per­
son?” asked Maria.
“Yes,” I replied.
“She is a very singular young woman,”
she continued; “we think her stupid. We
cannot make anything of her. But there
is no doubt poor Tardif means to marry
her.”
“Nonsense!" I ejaculated hotly; “I beg
your pardon, Maria, bnt I give Tardif
credit for sense enough to know his owu
position.”
I bad half an hour to wait in the little
harbor, Its great cliffs rising all nbout
me, with only a tunnel bored through
them to form an entrance to the green
island witbin. My rage had partly fum­
ed itself away before the yacht came in
sight.
