Labt June nnd July I had been tak
ing too much out of myself. Beside
the ordinary drudgery at the museum
I was in a hurry to get my novel fin
ished. I don't know how it is with
men who spin their brains habitual
ly, but after a hard day's work the
effort of creation (save the mark),
though it is pleasant at the time and
does not seem to cost me anything,
leaves all my nerves jarring.
In July wo went down to the cot
tage on the river, and I wrote harder
than over till I got into a morbidly
irritable and unreasonable state. 1
was always nursing some grievanco;
expecting Lucy to divine wishes I
never really felt, and deliberately si
lent on things I wanted done, that I
might fancy a grudge because they
were not seen to without my asking.
She, poor soul, was wonderfully pa
tient, but naturally it depressed her,
and now and then she broke down.
That always brought me to my
senses, ami there would be a redinte
gratio amoris. Still it was a strained,
unhappy sort of time.
On Sunday, July 20, I had been
writing all the morning, and not to
my satisfaction, so that I was very
despondent about things in general.
In the af ternoon Lucy suggested that
we should go to service at St. Peter's
school, which is near us, and where
they have a reputation for their sing
ing. The day had been sultry and
lowering, and at 4 o'clock when we
went in a thunderstorm was obvious
ly coming up. I remember well a
curious, heavy effect of sunshine on
the blue mass of vapor.
Lucy went up into the gallery, and
I was put into the stalls on the north
side. Next to me was one of the
masters. His face struck me as he
walked up the aisle. I never saw so
fine a human being. Very tall two
or three inches, probably, over the
six feet, and with that look of sup-'
pie strength that- a man gos from
constant athletic games. But the
head was tho thing a long oval face
with olive tint, long, straight hair as
soft as awomanls and silky black
mustache. He might have walked
out of a Lionardo picture, if Lionardo
had ever painted a Hippolytus, for
this young man looked as if nothing
had ever occurred to disturb the su
premacy of cricket ijmd football in
But I was in that overstrung tem
per when one cannbt command one's
thoughts, and mine flew off in self
criticism. I had staked all my hopes
on succeeding with, this novel, and
tho more I reflected the more I was
convinced of my own futility. Im
potent ambition that recognizes its
own impotence is a very pretty pur
gatory, and to indulge in unpleasant
meditations in atiot church on a sul
try July afternoon, with no prospect
of liberation tor an nour, jb uu iuuui
gence I commend to no one.
The storm was coming up fast, and
tho day had grown fearfully dark,
while tho air, heavily charged with
electricity, became moro and more
oppressive Tho thundor was growl
ing away in tho Thames valley, com
ing nearer with every roll. Opposite
mo was a row of stained glass win
dows. I remember their stupid sage
greens and thin reds and blues so
well. But they were open at top to
catch a breath of air, and 1 looked
out on to the leaden sky,
I was in that nervous, twitching
frame of mind that makes you, hear
steps in a house by night, and for
the first time in my Jifo I began to
speculate on tho possibilities of dan
ger. Suddenly there came a really
awful flash and burst just above us
r-Isawthe reader start as be was
walking up the aisle to begin the
lesson. Lucy is timid about thunder,
nnd I looked up toward the gallery
to see that she was not fajnting. As
I raised my eyes there came another
flash across the open window, bo in
tense and forked and wickedly ouiv.
eriug that it dazed me and printed
itself en the eyeuau tout " "
Suddenly quicker than I could
eay it-came the thought that I vr as
blinded. I put vafhewi on my hand
to ease tlie pain in the eye we were
sitting of course while the lesson
went on and a cold fear took hold
of mo. I supposed that the thermom
eter waa at 100, but I shivered with
a iin ninninc rfown mT spine, and
tho sweat on wy forehead was cold
to w Iwul, Bjfore I votttrj w

gono, and when I raised my head it
was" all red darkness before mo, full
of hoops and circles that grew in
cessantly in.to one another, hko rings
in water, standing out before me and
receding into space.
Then I began to reflect how I was
to get out of church and meet Lucy.
There were steps and turns, audi
could not bear the thought of a scene.
Besides, 1 had my ideas about Lucy.
I wanted to break it to her in my own
wuy. I wanted, in plain truth, to
lay a trap to catch her inmost
thoughts tho first cry of her heart.
I was not delirious; I was as sano as I
had been for weeks past Now I
would see if she could be all to me
that I could fancy. That was what
I thought How sano I was I do not
The service was of an appalling
length. It outlasted the storm. Mean
time I was ripening my plan. If my
man would help me, it was feasible.
When tho sermon ended great heav
ens I howl commented on that ser
mon, though it was nothing but a
string of inoffensive platitudes, but
it ended at last, and I took my neigh
bor by the sleeve.
"Look here,' I whispered, "I want
you to help" mo out. Do you mind
waiting for the voluntary?" They
have a sort of recital there after tho
boys have gone out Ho nodded, I
suppose, for I heard nothing and had
to ask again.
"Yes, all right." ho said. He had
a pleasant voice.
I steadied myself a bit during the
hymn, but then came a collection.
That was the first thing that brought
the feeling of helplessness in on mo.
I had to ask to be touched whofl the
bag came. This and the fumbling
way in which I handed it told the
tile to my neighbor.
"Pardon mo," he whispered, "but
aren't you blind"
"Blinded?" I replied, and I felt his
start. Then I explained to him that
I had a wife there and did not wish
tho shock to come on her too sudden
ly and wanted him to bee mo home.
I fancy ho thought mo crazy.
"All right," he said, "I'll do my
best. But you must explain fully,"
"Your name is Bedford," I said,
"and you knew mo intimately in
Paris five years ago."
"But I never was in Paris," he re
"We tried other places. Finally Lau
sanne was pitched on. I was to go
out on his arm and introduce him to
"You had better toll which is your
wife, if you can," ho said.
"She is sitting in the front row on
"There are four women there, he
I made him describe them to me,
Lucy was. the third. I am so unob
servant about dress that I could not
be sure till he described her features
roughly. It is a very odd sensation
to hear another man describe your
wife to you, especially if ho calls her
beautiful in an apologetic sort of way.
I should have been vexed if ho had
said "pretty." Yet somehow tho
other word made mo catch my breath.
As the voluntary ended ho toldtae
when Lucy got up to go, and wo
stumbled into tho isle while she could
not see us.
Lucy met us in tho vestibule. Ho
had to nudge mo when Bhe came.
Luckily, she spoke first.
"What a storm! And'you looked
"It was pretty bad," I said, "but let
me introduce Mr. Bedford, of whom
I have talked so often."
Then we walked homeward. Lucy
made talk about boating with the
young man. Ho was dreadfully em
barrassed in his tone, and no wonder.
I cut in now nnd then with leading
questions about tho people wo had
known, or rather I had known in
Switzerland. But he was very re
sourceless in lying, and I had to givo
it up for fear of a revelation. Be
sides, my head was dizzy with walk
ing on in tho dark, expecting every
moment to stumble. I was afraid,
too, that Lucy's suspicions might be
roused by my taking his arm. I am
not demonstrative in my ways with
Happily the footpath was empty,
but about half way homo wo met
some women I think they were all
women frftm the rustlo of their
dreeses-and had to steer clear of
them. In my nervousness I ran my
supporter hard into a lamppost.
"My dear boy," Lucy cried out,

affection at this rate, Have you lost
We got homo without further ac
cident, and I put my hand on tho
open door. Lucy was urgent with
our frinnd to stav and have tea.
"Never mind your work," she said.
"We shall think you are in a hurry
to see tho last of us."
It was evident enough to me that
the poor fellow desired nothing mora
ardently than to be gone and was
only anxious decently to conceal it.
Lucy's hospitable effusion seemed to
me excessive. However, at hut he
made his excuses definitely.
"At least you will let us see you
again soon," said Lucy. Thepbraso

while I stumbled into the drawing
room and groped my way to an arm
chair. "Now for if I thought
Very hkoly you don't enter into
my state of mind how should you!
I know perfectly that Lucy took this
man for Bedford, who was one of my
best friends. Indeed sho had seen
me, so to say, parade my affection
by walking arm in arm sho could
not have been tiher than gracious to
him. Yet, you see, I was concen
trated on my one idea. Sho must
spare me tho pain and humiliation of
tolling her that I was blind. Gpod
heavens 1 1 thought, surely she might
have apprehended from my voice or
from my look that I needed her con
solation. I was raging against her slowness
to observe (she tells me now that I
had looked so distracted in the morn
ing that there was not much chango
apparent). And there was tho devil
in me prompting mo to think that
but for this man's good looks she
would have been forced to notice my
distress. I was determined not to
ask her pity. All wish to spare her
a shock had gone clean from mo.
Sho camo in and threw hersolf
down on tho sofa, exhausted with
"Well," shfl said, "I must say you
never prepared mo for such a fine
young mnn. Perfectly my ideal. But
isn't he surprisingly shy?"
- "Certainly," I replied, "ho left you
to make tho running."
I said it with a laugh, I know, but
it was not pleasantly said. She looked
at mo thou, I suppose, for tho first
"Why, what is tho matter? Ypu
axe as white as a sheet."
"Oh, it's nothing," I said. "That
place was overpowering."
Lucy asked mo to open tho win
dow. I had not reckoned on that.
But I knew there was an oppn space
from the chair I sat in across the
room, so I roso and walked forward
as confidently as I could. Unluckily,
there was one of these little toy ta
bles in tho way. I tripped over it
and nearly fell.
"Blesa tho boy 1" Lucy cried out.
"Why, what is the matter? You
nearly earned away a lamppost on
tho way homo, and now you aro
breaking tho furniture."
I turned round and said with all the
sting I could put into my voice:
"My dear child, if lam sufforhig
for having accompanied you to your
devotions, is that a reason you should
Bnap at me?"
I was only sorry I could not think
of something memorably savage to
say. But the tone was enough. I
heard her turn on the sofa and begin
to sob. Then a great remorse seized
me. I forgot myself and made to go
to her. But in the stumblo I had
lost my bearings, so I walked crash
into tho table and instinctively I put
out my hand to feel my way.
Lucy Baw ni. She sprang up and
Bcreamedand caught mo in her arms.
"Oh, what is it? What is it?"
She drew me to tho sofa and held
mo there, "bay 11 isn 1 mai -noi
that," sho was sobbing out.
Tho hardqes3 in my heart was
mplting like ice, and there was a
great lump in my throat. But tho
devil in me madoono last effort, 'So
you have found mo out at last.
Really a handsome young man is a
capital screen 1"
I felt her flinch, but she drew my
head closer to her, for all I could say.
"Oh, my poor boy, my poor boy, and
I never guessed."
I struggled to got free, but in apio
mont I broke down, and then I was
crying like a child, sobbing agahist
her throbbing breast
It was Bho who recovered first.
Then I learned what it was to have a
wife who" cared for you. I had nqver
been nursed or taken caro of sinco I
was a boy, and of us two I had been
always tho self reliant ono. But that
night I slept whilo she watched be
side mo. She read my heart to mo
as if it had been a book all tho old
quarrels, the old fancied grievances
and tho shutting up of my heart
against her and blamed herself,
poor soul, for dullness because sho
had not sooner understood it. I was
almost happy beforo I slept that
Next day wo saw tho doctor. Ho

that hurt me, but there was some
thing in tho tone of his questions
that I could not understand. When
he told mo that there was hopol
might recover from tho ebock, I was
perfectly certain he did not mean
just what be said, and I told hini to
let mo know the worst But he per
sisted. Then I tried to cross exam
ine him on his reasons, but lie put
mo off with technical terms. That
convinced mo bo was keeping back
something, and he stupidly con
firmed my suspicions by asking to
see Lucy alone about the treatment
It ended, as I heard since, in las
writing her his view of the case.
Things grew very much worbe with
me in a short while. The firbt day
of blindness is not the worst It Is
like prison. I fancy. The torture in
creases continually till the nerves are
deadened to it.
I tried dictating to Lucy, but that
failed hopelessly. The medium In
terposed seemed toparalyzo the pow
er of expression. No doubt in course
of time I might haTO nuurtered the
difficulty, hut I could not steady my
Then I tried writing with my own
hand. Lucy persuaded me sho could
read it Sho used to Bit by mo and
keep tho lines straight, or toll mo Bho
did so. I have got nearly half a vol
umo that I wroto in this way of
course quite undecipherable now.
But it brought on tho crisis. Try to
write with your eyes shut for a min
ute or two, and you will see what a
strain it is upon tho nerves. Minp
gave way as you know. Wo had
worked six hours liko this ono day,
poor Lucy in agonies and imploring
mo to Bton. yet afraid to thwart mo.
That night I could not sleep, and to
ward morning delirium sot in. Tho
doctors tell mo there is no such thing
as brain fever, but it is a good do
Bcriptivo term for tho illness thnt fol
As I understand from what Lucy
tells mo, when tho fover first loft me
I was sano enough, but my inomory
was gono. I could see perfectly.
Then as memory began to return
there camo a Btrugglo with the old
delusion, and a relapso followed.
"Last," as Tennyson says, "I wolfe
sane, but well nigh close to death,"
and by a fortunate inspiration thoy
had kept mo in tho dark. Else, I
think, the shock of returning con
sciousness would havo frightened
away my fluttering life. It was Lucy
who explained it all to mo in the
Bilent watches of tho night, littlo by
little, as I could bear it. Poor Lucy I
I found, her flrst gray hair as sho
bent over mo a day or two afterward.
But I pulled it out and now it is the
only memento of my blindness.
Tho doctors call it hysteria, whiph
thoy say can simulate anything, and
in such cases of simulated blindness
it is often almost impossible to dis
tinguish tho false from tho true, tho
eyo acting under tests almost as it
would if really incapablo of sight.
Hysteria is an ugly, womanish word.
For my own part, I would as soon
say insanity. And I am buto any

rid of me. But sho does not want it
