We  Needs  Must Love    tht*-    Highest
���When we See it
���>Dorothy had not found it pos&ibla
to stay, quietly in hei*, own little boudoir during that long hour of suspense.
After she had seen Miles' tall form
vanish into the room where the surgeon was waiting for him, she tried in
vain to occupy herself, and every occupation, was completely out of the
question. She could not read, she
could not even fix her thoughts on
two consecutive sentences���the words
all ran together in a mist, and she saw
only Mij^s' face; heard only Miles'
voice saying to her:. Wish" tho best
for us both.
She took up a piece of needlework
about which Miles had once said he
'liked to see her fingers busy," but her
fingers seemed to grow, numb as' she
tried to pass the needle through the
silken material, and'her., brain refused
numbly to' follow the lines of the pattern. It could only repeat monotonously the words 'Miles had once
spoken���words which at the time she
had forgotten, though they came back
to her now with strange force. ��� -

was only a symbol of all the rest,

Oliver. _ . I.
At that thought the color crept into
her face, and sho remembered that
Iu all her anxiety and suspense about
Miles,,sho had, almost forgotten that
Oliver was the surgeon operating upon her husband.ln that silent room
along the corridor.
Oliver and Miles. A paralysing
senso of horror- ran through her veins,
all at once a. great longing .-for air
and space seized upon her; the walls
of the room seemed to. he hemming
her in���to be alone here,"In the special dainty place Miles- had prepared
for her was unendurable. She open-
fed the door, precipitately,- and hurrying along the passage* and down the
wide staircase, made her way into
the garden. Tho afternoon was very
hot and still, scarcely a leaf stirred,
and tho flowers lifted' motionles.3,
glowing faces to the glowing August
sky. From far away across the park
camo the-sound of sheep bells, above
the elms the rooks cawed dreamily,
down in the lane whero it cut the parlc
there was a babble of children's
voices' and laughter. Dorothy's
heart grew sick within her���she turned and looked up at the window of the
room where Miles" lay, and despite the
heat of tlio August day," she shivered.
This place on the terrace was where
she and Miles had stood only a littlo
whllo ago, after, his' innocence had
been proved, when he had told her
that he was not so well, and ..when he
had determined to seo Dynecourt
again! " *
I, wish Jie had not gono to Oliver,
she said half aloud, it does not seem
fair to have asked Oliver to do this
thing, and yet only Oliver could do it.
��� Oliver and Miles up there in that
room over her head. Miles' life in
the balance, and Oliver holding the
scales. ��� She turned from the terrace
and walked down the path oyer,whose
pergola late roses still flung���-, their
tangle of blossoms; and as she walked her thoughts were always in that-
room overhead, always with those two'
who loved her���the- man whose life
was at stake, the other who held that
life in his hands. And she did not
know���how should she know���that
whilst the life of the one dipped down
the scales, the song of the other hung
in the balance'. The years that had
gone unrolled themselves before..her
whilst she paced to and fro under the
roses. She saw herself, a.child and
girl again, in the old Rectory, and a
tall, grey-eyed boy was in the picture
a boy whose chivalry and tenderness
never failed���whose friendship ^vas
like a safe rock that never tottered
or changed.
Miles knows���Miles can- do���this
had been her quaint' declaration when
she found that her good natured, but
weak father, and her querulous'moth-,
er, were unable to give her tlie help
she needed. Miies can do. And
"MIIeTliW"_lWa"ysTlon_"wli a t-slie-most
wanted. Then came the years when
her childhood's friend was away, sol"
dering ln the East, the years when
she had neither seen or heard-of him
(for Miles was never- much of a
scribe) and her busy hospital life had
driven him, not, from her heart, but
from her daily thoughts. And into,
those daily thoughts Oliver had come.
Oliver Dynecourt, the handsome
young dresser, the liouse surgeon, of
whom such great things were prophesied, the clever eager enthusiasts, who
had seemed, to. Dorothy tc sum up
within himself all that was Lest and
manliest, !'<*.d made pas-'G.&te love to
her.' And she had given him of tho
best.
Those, hospital pi.t'.ir's faded.
There followed the slowu..corroding
misery of the day. when her father
and mother were helpless burdens
on,her hands, nnd she had, perforce,
to use all. her strength and youth and
capacity to keep them in ovon comparative comfort. The dreary lodgings,1 the monotonous days of work,
varied by attendance on > an ��� invalid
mother, who mado every trifle an occasion for grumbling, and saw nothing
good under tho sun; tho sordid efforts to mako two ends meet���ail
theso had nearly crushed hope and
heart out.of her.
And thon Miles had come home, and
asked her to marry hlni. lie wus
a poor soldier In thoso days, but lr.
wns not for IiIb poverty Hint she had
refused lilm, but becauso, though
friendship niul old affection wero his,
her lovo belonged to another man.
And afterwards, this picture roso
most H early of nil, Afterwards,
Mllo3 hud como again, with Hint
strango, bewildering offer, which had
ended ho strangely.
To bo hia wlfo for a year, just for
tho lnst year of his life, and then, to

I could ���not bear'the house,'Dorothy _ voice was dreamy, Clare's,.words
about her husband beat in her" brain
like a chime of Bweet toned' bellB.

As long as you are-charge of the

1 am sure everything will go right. 1
can trust even Miles' life ln your

Some new note in hei* friend's voice
made Claro,glanco at her keenly, but
Dorothy's eyes did not meet hers,
.they were looking out into the starry
night, and her lips wero parted In a
smile of infinite content.
' But all the anxiety a,ud suspense
woro not yot at an end. For many
days Miles lay In a condition of such
extreme ,weakness,-'that the' serious
question arose,' whether, In. spite of
the successful operation, he woijld
gather up sufilclont strength to recover. And to" those who watched
by him most closely, it "seemed as
though ho lacked vitality, lacked the
Will to make a*fresh beginning of life.
Sister Claro was tho first to notice
this', and the doctor corroborated-her
observation,,whilst to.Dyncourt, when
ho came down to ��� see how matters
were" progressing, the same thing was
self-evident. ^ " i      ���
Dorothy had elected that for-01iver_s
mind It, would be wiser that they
should not meet; in a letter to -him she
had expressed .the deep gratitude she
felt,' but on the day of his coming she
kept to her room with a,feigned headache, and the surgeon's opinion of 'her
husband was conveyed to her by
Clare,' "
Mr. Dynecourt says that something
is keeping Sir Miles from getting on'
tha.Sister said;, he can't understand
what it ls, neither "can" I. ��� But "Sir
Miles doesn't seem to have the will to
live, she added thoughtfully;, he is
making no real effort to get well: ln

The words startled Dorothy, a great
stab of pain shot through her.   '

Yes. ' If it were not too. absurd to

Court Asked to Decide Whether ehe
Is Properly Reared or Not���^
, Tracked by Detectives
-,. In-Paris, a rather'strange question
whether, a little girl of ,9' had heen
well brought up was argued solemnly
ln the Paris law courts on the evidence of sheriff's officers who had
been set to watch her,-manners" at
* ,The little girl, Mile! Olsele,- ls the
daughter of a'Paris doctor. He and
his wife separated- eighteen months
ngo, and tho mother, who was given
the custody' of the child, has since
married again. The father petitions
to have the child given into his care
on tho ground: that she is belug
badly brought up. The officer^appointed by the father reported ��� that
ho sat at the next tablo at Dieppe.
The little girl leaned her elbows, on
tho table, laughed ostentatiously,
spoke loudly and made .herself remarked by her language and attitude.
When her father reproached her she
only laughed or'mado faces at him.
But' the. officer ��� for the other sido
found that at a Bols de Boulogne restaurant Mile. Glsele's manners wero
Irreproachable, except that she soma-
���times"*took up her bread and bit it
Instead of breaking it with her fin-
tiers, .that 'she helped herself to tho
salad with her fingers, <ind occasionally forgot to wipe her mouth after
drinking. She handled her' knife
and fork properly, sat up well at table,
never raised,lier voice louder than'a
little lady ought'to do and always an��
swered her mother with a smile. "When
finger bowls were brought Mile.
Gisele showed her'good-breeding by
moistening lier lips and" the tips of her
fingers"and drying them with her table

OUTRAGES URGED TO
v    PREVENT BIG WAR
French Anarchists Issue, Bold Manifesto Against International  ������,.
Conflict'
In Paris, In-order to put a stop to
war, should France become Involved
in an international conflict, the French
anarchists, have' issued a manifesto recommending, sabotage in the, army.
Asxa consequence M. Jules Leco'mte,
secretary of the Communist Anarchist Federation, has been arrested on
tho charge of Inciting to theft,-pillage,
and murder. The Incriminating manifesto declares:-
The, Communist Anarchist Federation, which comprises all the '..anarchists in-this" country, is preparing in
a practical mann.r the sabotage of the
army and of the'mobilization in'case
of war. We shall take advantage of
the disarray caused by war to realize
the social ..revolution and to Install
communism.   A
They recommend the sabotage of locomotives, the unbolting of rails, the
gutting of the telegraph wires, the destruction of bridges and tunnels and
the railway rolling stock.
It is pointed out that in the barracks
many things can be saboted, particularly the guns. Also the military
aeroplanes and. dirigibles can be rendered useless and the horses poisoned.  '      .. " ; '

Whether I,can* rouse him? Dorothy
repeated, though she was obviously
not thinking of the words sho spoke".
Yes?.-you. He brightens up.,when
j you are.in tlie room, and afterwards,
it seems as though he voluntarily
dragged himself- back into weakness
again. -L can't explain It, but" it iri
really whaiAl say. lt Is almost as
if he was trying to die.
But, he shan't die, Dorothy 'saki
slowly, a great .light coming into her
eyes, he shan't die, now because I am
going to fight' for his life, 1��� she
drew a long breath, I am going to
make him want io live.
Clare loolwd at Iter wonderingly, so
radiant a light shono in her. eyes, io
vivid a color flashed into licv~faco,->aud
though her words \yore arffienlgma tci
the Sister, she saw that DoVothy had
some inward and convincing certainty
ot success.
Would it hurt,Miles, she nsked aflt.r
a pause, and in her manner Claro noticed a certain shy, sweet hesitation,
would it hurt Miles if I told him something that surprised hlni.
Would it please as well as surprise
him? Claro questioned.
Yes���I���think so, Dorothy laughed
softly, I do moro than think���I am sure
ho will ho pleased.
