A Novel by Annie Ttaompsoa.
When  tho day closed  he left     the
hotel and walked eastward, with no
object but to divert his     thoughts
He passed a church through ths.* open
door of which the sound of music issued,  Impulse  led  bim  within,  l'rols-
ably  a service wns nsit long     over,
for the building  was  nearly  empty.
The   organist    was    practising,    He
played a prelude sif Bach's,  pausing
now sind again  in repeat a difficult
bar;   .lohn listened  with     gradually
deepening  llllorost   us  oue      dilliculty
niter   another   wns   una   nnd      overcome.     Presently   classical     ground
w,a**    deserted:      Humphrey     Stark's
"l'liere"   was   rendered   twice,      tlie
player  Indulging  himself  Oil   the second occasion with a brilliant Improvisation of weird harmonies between
the opening und closing Uietxie.    He
changed the character of the    piece
entirely—there was no prayer,  but a
inutli-iiiig of curses  in the volume of
sullen sound  ll.ut rose out    of    the
depths  to  lling   itself      in      defiance
against the gates of heaven, and then
stormed    and    wailed    and    Bobbed
down  into moody silence, destroying
i;veu     the     peace     sif     the      closing
phrases. It was fitting that the niu-
sieiun wandered into the plaintive me-
lusly of a Uerceuse by Kinross,     lulling all troubled thoughts and stormy
sounds  to  rest.   His  next effort was
more elaborate and less interesting.
The seat beside John, hitherto
empty, was now occupied by a
young man who hud brought music
with him and was studying it. A
glance at his face showed it to be
singularly attractive: it lacked
strength, perhaps, but the features
were beautiful—delicacy, culture, re-
nneinent, expressed themselves in
every line. The new coiner seemed
entirely absorbed in his study, never
lifting his eyes from the page, and
whispering an emphatic "Excellent,
excellent," to himself when the performance pleased him specially. At
its conclusion, iie laid down his
score and went forward to speak
with the organist Lights were being put out, John rose to leave: as
he passed the music he noticed the
initials G. W. and un aildress written boldly across the cover.
"I am fanciful enough to imagine
anything to-night," he roilected with
EOine impatience: "I coulsl swear
that that writing is perfectly familiar to me, and I cannot possibly
have seen it befssre. It is an uncommon hand, too."
When lie reached his room, he began mechanically to empty his coat
pockets. The first thing he drew
out wus a large envelope addressed
to Mary Forester: he wondered to
lind it in his possession, until, noting truci-s isf mud on one side and of
damp on the other, he recollected of
having found it at. the ,Mause gate
tho night before.
"I know this handwriting, at all
even 19," lie asserted, and held It
nearer to the light: the initials G.
W. were in one corner. He dropped
the paper as though it had been on
fire, no doubt remained as to tho
idi'ntity of Mary's corri*spondent.
"llut how can I know his writing so
well?" he questioned slowly. "I
have certainly seen it quite lately:
where? ... In church this evening,
of course, on the music. . . Dut I
knew it then, 1 had seen it before
that: where? where?"
Light flashed on him. He tossed
the papers out of the box, unfolded
Mark Prcsa***rt)'s letters and held one
of them beside Mary's envelops?—the
writing on both was identical,
stroke for stroke, letter for letter.
He stared at them until they became
blurred and misty.
"I must have some sleep," he decided at last: "I am too tired now
to think or seo clearly."
It was easy to reckon on sleep,
but the moment he Iny down it lied
from him. He found himself hopelessly wide awake, tormented by
questions, hurried involuntarily
through mazes of thought; so far
from being too tired to think, he
was too tired to keep from thinking.
How came those two mon to write
so exactly alike? Numbers of handwritings resemble each other. Dut
this was a case of identity, not of
resemblance; and the style of writing wus so uncommon, it must be
the work of one person. Dut thc
names       were diiTerentl To
chango one's namo was
not an unheard - of pro
ceeding. But Gavin Wishart was
said to bo amiable, generous, hig-h-
principled; whereas Murk Frosslie
was a thief and a forger and a coward. Good reason for him to change
his name. Suppose he hud changed
it, to Gavin Wishart — what thi;»?
"Oh, this is intolerable nonsense!"
groaned John. "Mr. Claverton has
known the man all his life. Why can
I not sleep?"
Toward morning sleep came to
him, and he would gladly have shaken lt off, for it was less endurable
than wakefulness.
This was not Glasgow, it was
Santa Cruz. He was standing or ♦*»
Mole, alone but for that still figure
seated beside hlm. Alan's eyes were
wide open, they had in them a fiercely questioning look. What was it
they were trying to say7 "Tell me,
Alan," ho heard his own voice ask,
"w'ho is Mark Presslie? Who is
Mark Presslie?" and the dead man's
eyes said as plainly as words, "Who
is Gavin Wishart? Who is Gavin
Wishart?" He dared not meet these
questioning eyes. He looked across?
the sea to Grand Canary. It had
grow*n oddly dwarfed and shrunk. It
was not Grand Canary at all, but
Arran, and this was not Tenerife, but
tl** Feldrossan shore, Mary was beside him. "Oh, Mary dear, if you
could have loved mel    Only a little.
dear; I would have beon content with
so little. I have loved ynu for fifteen
years, Mary; how can I help loving
you now? Lift up your eyes to me,
why do you keep them turned
uway?" She lifts theni up, and her
eyes and her lips sob out the same
question, "Who is Gavin Wishart?
Who is Ga'.'in Wishart?" And all the
timo there i.s some one sitting near.
Some one with a book before him,
who keeps nodding his head and saying, "Excellent! excellent!" every
time the hateful question is asked.
Then Mary's voice i.s drowned by a
louder sound: is it tho sea, or music?
It grow-s louder, and louder; it must
be an organ. Xo, it is not that
either. It is a perfect roar of sound,
and thero is no music in it: but there
aro words. What are they? They
grow more nnd more distinct. Thousands of voices are dinning into his
ears the question—Who is Gavin Wishart? Who is Ga — a — ah! He
awakened himself with a shuddering
cry, to hear the breakfast gong boom
its summons through thc hotel.
His dream hud been of the peculiarly vivid kind that remains with
the dreamer after he wakens, and
transfers its own unreality to everything that surrounds him—it alone
is real. a]l_clsc is sconijng. Occupied
ed unoBle to" grasp other thoughts,
as he was by (his phantasy, he seem-
When he took up the morning paper,
ho almost expected to lind in print
the questions that were h.iunting
him; ho glanced at the various Itoms
of news without in the least, comprehending them, even the Stock and
Share Ijst failed to rouse his interest. Of one certainty only was he
conscious, he must, by some means,
have these questions solved before
another nightfall; to gain his end,
he found tho envelope Alan had directed to Hichard Twiss, and then
betook himself  to Deane street.
It did not surprise him in the
least, rather ho felt it to be altogether appropriate, that as he entered the ollice he should meet emerging
therefrom the young man who had
bs*en his neighbor in church on the
previous evening. With an odd sense
that his dream was being continued,
he stood aside and watched him, as
he was attended obsequiously to the
door by a clerk, who observed in
reply to some low-spoken remark.
"Yes indeed, Mr. Wishart, he looks
very unwell."
"Excellent, excellent!" John found
himself saying, "that is Gavin Wishart:  but who is Mark Presslie?"
Hichard Twiss had returned to his
office that Thursday morning, after
an absence of ten days. He was
still very weak and feeble, and one
piece of intelligence given him with
his letters added to his sense of helplessness; Mr. Gavin Wishart, who hud
called several tinses to sue l.im, was
to return this morning at 10.30, it
was 10 o'clock now. Hichard reminded himself of his doctor's order,
strictly enjoined — "Avoid all worry and excitement," such a simple
easy rule!
An he sat at his writing table, Inlet bis glance Wander listlessly from
one to another of the familiar objects surrounding him; to-day they
seemed strangely unfamiliar, he believed they must have been altered
in some way during his absence, but
the change was in himself not in

his eyes to meet those of his reflection looking down at hiin from lhe
mirror in the ci'ntre recess; he Btnred
nt his face in some dismay, the
feebleness he feared was evidenced
there. "Don't you loso your nerve,
Dick," ho implored himself In a low

become subject to those attacks of
excruciating pain, of which Gavin
had witnessed one. Twiss was a

concerned, the mere apprehension of
it reduced him at times to -an ex-
tremity of terror; perhaps his ex-
pertenca was sufficiently awful to ex-
cuse him. It chanced that so far
each attack had been precedeil by the
news of heavy loss in ono of the
many speculations into which he had
plunged, and loss nnd agony were
nrsw Inseparably connected in his
mind. At present as there were
many losses, he lived in a demoralizing stule of fright, his mind was olT
the balance, he besought himself
o\er anil over again not to lose his
nerve—his nerve, that had carri.'d
him triumphantly through a dozen
crisis, supplyintr a brilliant Stratagem, a ready sentence, a bold affectation of Innocence with which to

it fascinated him to watch the minute hand creep stealthily down toward the half hour He began to
pity himself profoundly, surely Providence could not do less.       Provi
dence figured largely In nis thoughts
now: "Providence" was a pleasantly vague and Impersonal term, wiih
which he felt much more at his enso
than with that other lerm—"God."
He believed that in his present very
critical situation he deserved at least
as much pity as blame: it was not
his choice to be left heir to a reputation that he had found himself
quite unable to sustain without the
aid of artifice, nor was it his choice
to have among his clicnls a man
with such superabundant wealth and
such a foolishly confiding disposition as belonged to old Gavin Wishart. Without any special desire on
his part, ho had been borne upon
the shoulders of Circumstance into
so prominent a position in the religious world, that Providence, for
its own credit, was almost bound to
maintain him there.
The half hour struck—his client
was announced immediately thereafter.
Mr. Wishart appeared to have a
good deal to say on matters unconnected with business; as ho listened
to him, 'Richard's excited apprehension sank to rest.
"You need a change, you should
take a holiday," Gavin urged at
Is* it.
"Impossible," sighed the lawyer.
"1 cannot think of it. I am forced
to go into tho country until Monday; that must content inc."
"Until Monday only? Three days
are nothing. You should leave work
altogether alone for a month."
"Ah, Mr. Wishart, you are about
as practical as my doctor, who
warns me to avoid everything in the
shape of worry."
All the time, Gavin had been trying to persuade himself to mention
his real errand. He was distressed
by his companion's appearance,
which, now that it was so' worn
and haggard, was a much more
powerful factor in promoting its
owner's Interests than it had been
formerly. To ask awkward questions of a man who had been cautioned against worry seemed brutal, but what wus to bo done? Prom
the moment of his entering the room
the Impressions lhat hud eluded him
for days had bagun to revive With
something of their former intensity;
he was afraid to act, yet he felt the
imperative necessity for action. He
rose to go, and lingered: moved toward the door, and came back again;
and then began to speak with an
embarrassment that was perfectly
"By the way, could you—could
you let mc havo another look at
those 'Indigent' Donds? 1 want to
make a note of their numbers for
future reference."
Kicnard rose without au instant's
hesitation, turned to the safe, and
began to search his pockets for the
"Dy all means," he said heartily.
The embarrassment was entirely on
Gavin's side, Twiss showed not the
slightest trace of it. "I was
thinking only this morning," he continued, hunting in one packet after
another, "how extremely fortunate it
i.s that we did not sell out when you
—confound it all! I have left the
key at home." He looked ruefully
at Gavin, vexation and annoyance
expressing themselves in every line of
his face. "I must li'ave town this afternoon, or you might have seen them
to-morrow; will you look in on Tuesday and I will have them out for
you. That will he time enough. I
suppose? I am afraid I cannot get
back before Mondav evening—unless
"No, no: you are not to think of
cutting short your holiday on my
account," exclaimed Gavin, staggered by the rea'liness with whish his
proposal had been met. "Tuesday
will do perfectly well, of course;
pray don't look so concerns-d. the delay ls of no consespu-nce whatever."
"It is no holiday, or I could have
put it off; it is a business engagement that I am obliged to keep. Hut
I am almost certain that I could be
here on Monday."
Gavin protested warmly against
any alteration of plan  being made.
"Well, well," snid Twiss, "we will
wait until Tuesday, since you insist.
This is unpardonable m.'gligence on
my part, but for my illness I should
not know how to account for lt.
On Tuesday, then, Mr. W:ishart."
Gavin left.
"Done there!" gasped Hichard,
"I'm done there! Ths* money must
bo raised somehow; how? I don't
know whero to look for it."
Ho seized pen and papi'r and began
to make rapid calculations, all his
old energy roused wil hin him by the
excitement. Reaction came directly;
ho Krevf confused, his hand shook, ho
coulsl neither make the figures   clear
nor count them,
"Damn you, Dick, you've lost your
nerve I" ho cried; (lung down the pen
in impotent rage, and atarcd blankly
at the wretched, helpless face losiking
out at hiin from  the mirror.
Suddenly he remembered what ho
had to dread. Here was anxiety
ami excitement and loss enough to
bring it. back at any moment! One
hand pressed Itself against his heart,
the other clutched hold of the table,
he shook in every limb as one of
those paroxysms of terror to which
he was constantly giving way swept
over him. He heard voices Without
and as the door opened he drifted
into the apathetic condition that so
often follows a severe nervous strain.
A card was brought to him. "Yes,"

Ilesl in om* direction, became more

question within himself how much or
how little this newcomer could know
of him, how much or how little it
would be wise to disclose?
The curiosity with which John Cayford at first regarded Twiss, gave
place instantly to sympathy; the
worn face, the hopeless expression,
the HstleSs attitude, appealed effectively to a man who never recognized
weakness without wishing to impart
to it some of h*t own strength, nor
saw distress without doing his utmost to alleviate it. Moreover, he
had been unprepared to find here so
striking a resemblance to Alan, a resemblance probably accentuated by
ill health, for Suffering has her peculiar sign of kinship which she
marks legibly in the eyes of her children. When the circumstances of
Alan's death had hei*n detailed, und
Twiss, turning from the papers before him, looked qiteatlonlngly at
his visitor, "John started, so
strangely did tha gaze now meeting

It seemed to him entirely Without
his Volition that the words escaped
him,  "Who is Mark  Presslie?"
"Mark Presslie!" repealed Richard
wonslei'ingly. "Why do you u-;k nie
about  him?"
"Vour brother spoke of him constantly. I thought he might not
have heard of Allan's death.''
"Yes, he has heard; I told him.
Alan spoke of him as Mark PriWSiie,

"i am greatly Indebted to you for

Twiss was saying. "\ou spoke of

"None, none at all: there could uot

"Ah, 1 am glad. Pain is a dreadful thing, lt makes sueh cowards of

"1 can see that," said John com
passionately, rousing himself to consider Twiss, "you look ill. If ysis,

about your brother, I had perhups

you are feeling stronger,"
"I beg you to stay! I have—

with a lie on his lips. My poor
brother! I have m-ver ceased to reproach myself. 1 ought to have
been lenient, forbearing; Instead, I
wrote Alan a cruel, heartless letter"
(of which, reflected Hichard, you have
certainly heard). "No one knows
how the catastrophe shocked me,
how I suffered When I thought of
his disgrace. That suffering left its
mark, it could not fail to do so; I
contracted then the disease that will
kill, when it is tired of torturing."
He raiss'i! is hand to his heart, and
then ili.,;ied it, as though that
slight exertion wero too much for
him. Ho had Uttered sontunce very
slowly, In a dreary monotone wilh
sad eyes persistently fixed upon his
listener: the slow speech seemed the
result of Weakness, the sad eyes expressed nothing but hopeless sorrow.
John debated, With one sentence
ho could clear Alan's name; he was
urgently prompted io give voice to
it and lighten the Weight of grief by
which Twiss seemed to bo crushed:
unfortunately,    that sentence would
Incriminate Presslie. What be hud

hands, and until this Wus dona bu

He might not. do more than look his

his, grew suddenly eager,

"He was in distress."
"Do you always help the distressed?"

Trouble For Ilu* Vs-ara,
Windsor, Ont., Dec. 29.—(Special)
—lt has been acknowledged for some
years that Dodd's Kidney l'ills
would cure any case of Kidney Disease, and of late those interested in
medical science have been watching
those cures to convince themselves
that they were permanent. Gradually the conviction is forced that
Dodd's Kidney Fills cure once and for
all. One moro proof of this is furnished by John ,1. McDonald, a well
known farmer, now residing at 180
l.atiglois avenue. Five years ago he
was troubled with Rheumatism and
Dropsy, For two years he Buffered
terribly, and the different medicines
he Hied failed to relieve him. llis
h'gs were swollen and the pains he
Buttered were most, acute. He used
Dodd's Kislney Fills, was cured, and
his cure caused spiite a sensation at
ths1 time.
Mr McDonald, speaking of his cure
recently,  suys :
" I have had no return of my
trouble up to tbe present, and 1 ain
not anxious for any. It is with
pleasure I acknowledge that Dodd's
Kidne)' Fills cured me. I found them
just us represented, and tbey did for
