From that Friday morning until the

was quite alone.

On Friday night, unable to sleep, she
threw a negligee over her shoulders
and went down to her garden. The
village slept quietly, but there was a
light In Ward's small window near the
church. She remained on the terrace
until the light was extinguished.
At dinner that Saturday Boroday'a
empty place cast a gloom over the
meal. Walter Huff came a little late.

acknowledged their duty to the Rus

his defense. But she stubbornly re
fused to countenance the attack on
Mr. Ward. Huff lapsed Into sullen si
lence, his eyes on her. The other men
found every argument met by silence,
except for one pr.sslonate outburst.
"He is my friend," she cried. "I
have never had any friends, except
once, years ago, a girl. It was Boro

her. It was the-Rutherford matter.

Talbot tried a new method. "It's
a wealthy congregation," he explained.
"It Is not much for them, and It's
safety for us. If we let Boroday go
up, and he thinks what he will about
us, he can make It bad for all of us."
Elinor turned on him.
"I don't care a rap for the congre
' gatlon. Do you think he will let that
money go without a struggle? The
moment It goes Into the offertory It
ceases to be money and becomes a di
vine trust to him. He'll fight and—
someone will be killed."
It dawned even on Talbot after •
time that her solicitude was for none
of them. When he realized It, at last,
he sat back with folded arms and
frowning brows. Here was mockery,
for sure; old Hilary's daughter, reared
on pure violence, ami in love with a
parson!—old Hilary's daughter and
successor, defying the band In Its
hour of need, and quoting a divine
trust in extenuation 1
In view of her attitude, there seemed
to be nothing to do.
"We'll give It up. of course," said
Lethbrldge, after a pause.
There had never been any drinking
in old Hilary's house. Only abstain
ers were ever taken Into the band. But
It was the custom of the two older men
to remain at the table over their cigars,
giving Walter and Elinor a half-hour
together. That, night, when Elinor
rose from the table. Huff, although he
rose with the others, made no move
to follow ber. She looked back from
the doorway, a slim, almost childish
figure, with beseeching eyes.
"You most all try to think kindly of
me," she said wistfully. "I care for
yoo as much as I ever did. Yon fire all
I hare, yon three. It Is only that I—
have been thinking."
For the first time since the organi
zation of the band, there was quarrel
ing that nlfht In old Hilary's paneled
library. At the end of an hour Walter
Huff flung out of the door, white with
fury. He stumbled through the gar

he went In the rose alley he met El

as he liked. In nonessentials he al

so much bigger than Its ritual.
That evening Mrs. Bryant had taken

at his hostess' withered throat, was,
( naturally, not there. From the pearl
to the parish house, from the parish

Ward's mind he was far from the sub

"As president of the Chancel soci

Back to the choir with a Jump came
Ward's errant mind.
"I wonder," Ward reflected, "wheth
er a matter of tradition and custom
will prevent women from singing In
the heavenly choir!"
Mrs. Brynnt stnbbed at her flsh. But
she had not finished. There were
mnny things about Saint Jude's that
did not please her. The burial of old
Hilary Kingston had been one. She
seized on that.
"A non-communicant," she snnppod.
"An Infldel, tin atheist! The daughter

"Thnt must bo a mistake."
"It Is quite true. Servants talk, you
know. What can you expect? Italsed
out of the church, with no belief, and,
of course, no moral Instruction."
Ward bent forward over the table.
"That Is a very serious statement,

Mrs. Bryant flushed, a purplish spot
In the center of each sagging cheek.
"I do not gossip with the servants,"
she snld, shortly. "It Is common talk.

hours of the night. The girl spends a

not go home. He went up the hill. As
he strode on, he remembered many
things. The girl was without the sheet

her unbelief. Although It was after
