CHAPTER 111. **
It wii, after all, the assistant rector
Of Saint Jnde'a who came up the hill
that hot August day. The news of old
Hilary's death bad come down from
the city on an early train. The rector
was away on his deferred fishing trip,
where, having exchanged his clerical
collar for none at all and having blis
tered the end of his ecclesiastical nose
he was quite happy.
The assistant, Mr. Ward, whistled as
he- climbed the hill. As the hill was
steep, this proved two things—hla
youth, and his lightness of heart. True,
old Hilary Kingston was dead, and vio
lently done to death. Bat to Ur. Ward
death was but the gateway to a larger
life; and only very sad la the yeung,
who have not yet lived.
Mr. Ward was young, a broad-shoul
dered young man, with clear, rather
deep-set eyes, and a firm mouth. The
people of Saint Judeti prophesied that
the world would hear of Mr. Ward.
There was only one bar to his progress!
he had too much humor. It seemed to
the people of Saint Jade's that religion
Is a serious thing, forgetting that good
cheer is one of the things It must bring,
and It be religion.
Boroday met Ward In the hall. Old
Hilary was upstairs by that time, lying
la his great bed. All the doors and
windows were open, and sunshine filled
the rooms. Ward thought It an un
usually sane house of mourning.
"I'm glad to see the ana," he said.
"So many people close things up."
"Miss Kingston wished things undis
"I came to tell her—but I suppose
ahe doesu't care to see anyone—the
rector Is away on a holiday. IH wire
Mm, of course."
Boroday led the way Into the library
where the rector had so recently re
ceived his check. He turned and eyed
"Why bring the rector back T he
asked. "It 1a a little late for—the
comforts of religion."
"Mr. Kingston gave lavishly to the
church. Wbatevsr the church can
"I rather think," said Boroday po
litely, "that ha gave, not to the church,
but to the poor."
"Tnasamch aa ye give unto one of
ttm least of these,'" Ward replied,'
and returned Boroday's gaze.
Blhror bad polled herself together.!
By the one standard that had ruled
tier Ufe she acted now—her father's
Wanl, brought face to face with her,
found her unapproachable, calm, al
most cold. Found her very lovely, toot
and let his ardent young eyes rest on
her oftener than was wise. Her sit
uation appealed to him. She seemed
to be quite alone, save for the Russian
with the beard.
"If I can do anything," he said,
"wire to yoar relative*—anything of
"I have no relatives. My mother
died when I was bern. I—l have a
curious feeling that everything in the
world has stopped—as tbongh I'd
reached the end of things."
It seemed to Mr. Ward that he
should offer some of the cemfort of his
faith to tMs shrinking, wide-eyed girl
before him. But what 7 Humors had
come to him, of course.
"Death is only a tragedy when we
think of It as an end and not as a be
ginning," he said. It is always sad.
I hope yon understand that I know
how terrible all this Is for you. But
to have lived one's Ufa, active and'
well and useful to the end, and then
to depart, in the fullness of days, for
new activities—somewhere else—"
Elinor shivered la tha warm sun
"Ton Bee," she raid drearily, "X do
not believe those «w«f- I should like
to jnat now." Then, almost defiantly:

He had grown a beard since the St.

Hilary's body, until the Record e*tr*

Ward bad risen. He towered far
above Elinor. Because of his heavy
shoulders, he never looked his full
height. Boroday, In the corridor, stole
a moment from his anxieties to find
the young clergyman evenr Inch of a
man, and to throw him the grudging
admiration of defeated mlddle-uge for
youth and vibrant life.
"Then I shall not send for the rec

"Do the—the police know about
"Surely. I suppose you have been
told what happened."
"They will tell me nothing."
There was a car coming up the hill
That would be It. Boroday eased hla
aching arm. He did not dare a sling,
but the hand was thrust in the pocket
of his coat. If only the hemorrhage
did not atart again 1 He braced him
self and watehed.
"It.was a robbery, you know that?"
said Ward, in the library. He picked
,hls words carefully. "As I got the
istory, a taxicab on Its way to the bank
was held up near the Record office,
lour father had stepped to the curb
to hall the taxi, and —It happened
then, a—a stray bullet from one of
the bandits' guns."
Boroday, eyes on the car, heard the
statement, and, with the chief coming
up the steps from the road to the gar
den, took the time to repudiate it.
"Pardon I" he aald. "It was not a
weapon in the hands of the bandits. It
was the revolver of the bank messen
Ward turned In surprise. Boroday'a
eyes were fixed on Elinor's, with reas
surance In their depths. The assistant
rector was net subtle, but he had a
curious feeing of something behind all
this. He was uncomfortable.
"I trust," he said earnestly, "that
theee various outrages will be at an
end now. Surely the police—"
"Possibly." The anarchist's - gag?
wandered to the garden, where even
then the chief was making his way to
ward the house. "Of course, these
bandits are trained men of unusual

"They would not be on the force, at

would be" —he shrugged his shoulders
—"bandits themselvt-B, very pfissihly."
Ward left after that —left with an
uncomfortable feeling of having got
nowhere. He was convinced of one
thing, death, which for him was an
open gateway, was for this girl a
closed and fastened door. And he
knew something else. No other woman
had ever so profoundly Impressed him
M this girl who without hope In her
grief met it with a high head and
He felt a certain comfort in one
thing. Elinor had made a concession,
and Hilary Kingston, lavish giver to
the parish poor, was to be buried from
The chief met Mr. Ward on the ter
race and took off his hat. Boroday,
In the dim hall, felt a certain sense of
content. Nothing could- have been more
auspicious, could have set his stage
better for his Uttle drama, than the
presence of the young clergyman. The
whole scene gained tone, decorum.
The chiefs visit was short. They
had followed the bandits' car and lost

"You remind me of someone—l'll
place you, or the person you resemble,
pretty soon. I have a slow mind. It's
like an Airedale dog; it's a long time
getting started, but when It begina It
hangs on like the devil."
The drinks were cold, and the house
cool. The prospect of starting out In
the heat and dust did not allure the
two men. Sitting there at hi* ease, the
chief ran over the point* of Ihe out

"Ah!" he said, bending forward to
ward Boroday. "I told you I'd get It.
It was In St. Louis I sow you I"
Their glances clashed* the chiefs In

"The dog," said Boroday, "holds on

"Yftu have never been In St. LoulsT"
Elinor lived alone after the funeral.
Henrlette, who had now a chance to
practice her favorite vice of thrift, was
for sending away the other servants.
"I can manage," she said. "For , all
you eat "
Bui Elinor protested.
"I shall want to keep up the Batur
iay dinners. Let things stay as they

It had been old Hilary's custom to

Henrlette raised her hands.
"Things U ure changed," she cried.
"You are alone here now. To have

"That Is better than having one
So Elinor had her way. The Satur
day dinners were resumed early in
September, Boroday coming with In
finite caution from his cheap boarding
house in the South aide, Talbot and
Lethbrldge from the bachelor apurt
ment they rented together. Walter
Huff was late.
"I hud to be careful." he told Boro

Boroday swore through his beard.
"Then why did you come here?" he
demanded. Young ' Huft laughed,
glanced at Elinor, and back Impudent

"You know why I came," he said, In
high good hninor. "But I wus careful.
It's all right."
Old Hilary's chulr hud been placed
by Elinor's order. She had borne up

It was Lcthbrldge, who, waiting un

and glanced around the table.
"It seems to me," he begnn, "thnt we
have a lot to decide tonight. I've been
thinking about It ever since—for some
lime. The first thing, of course. Is
whether we are going to hang together
Talbot had rather a weird sense of
humor. He suggested that the word
"hang" be chnnged to "remain."
"We've been doing well. Well do
all right again, too, as soon as this
thing blows over. It was unlucky, but
we've been pretty fortunate. Now wo
can do one of two thlflgs. For Elinor's

"And after that 7""

That waa an eventful evening, with '
Ellnorj mlaty-eyed, moving into her fa

awearlng the almple oath of alleglanco
which held them together. And when j
they had moved from the dining room,
Walter Huff, following Elinor out onto
the terrace, told her ho loved her.
The starlight above, and thoae near- i
er »um UlUt outlined the atreeta be- [
low, threw a son radiance over her.
She was dressed In white; old Hilary
had disliked mourning garments. Eli
nor, was looking down Into the village.
The great spire of Saint Jude's tow

ardent, thrilled to the girl's presence
close beside him.
"You«re very aloof tonight," he said.
She Bmlled up at him.
"Not that surely. I was only think
"Of whatr .
"Oh, of different things—of the peo
ple down there in their houses—their
lives, the things they believe; we think
they are narrow, but I wonder, after
all, If you and I, who believe none of
those things, are not the narrow ones."
Huff was not subtle. Possibly he
would not have understood, had not
the Saint Jude's chimes rung Just then.
"Symbols like that seem to menn so
much to them," said Elinor, and fell
In the warm silence, Huff felt for
and found her hand.
1 "All -thl* time, when I couldn't see
you," he wild unsteadily, "I've been
thinking of you here alone, and In
trouble. Sometimes I thought I couldn't
stand It, that I'd have to come out and
see you, If only for five minutes."
"I hnve always been more or less
lonely. Sometimes I think If I had been
sent away to school, had known other
girls, It would have been better. I
have never had any friends—except
you, and the others."
Huff released her hand and faced
"I don't want to be your friend, Eli

up her lips like a child for his kiss...,
The police were still active. So In

as a plan of campaign. Talbot played
golf and established friendly relations
that might be invaluable later. Huff,
under protest, retained the taxlcab
