A Novel by Annie Thompson.
"When   tlie  day  closed   he  left      the
hotel and "walked  eastward,  with  no
object,  but  to  diver, t  his      thought's
He passed  a church  through  I lie open

even     the     peace      of     thu      closing
phrases,  it was iittinir  tl.at "th'e musician wandered into the pJLiintive me-
1 lody of a  ] Jem-use by Kinross,    lulling all troubled thoughts ami stormy
sounds   to' rest.   II is   iu!\"t   effort  was
more elaborate and  less  interesting;.
The seat beside John, hitherto
empty, was now* occupied by a
" young" man who had 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-
miement, 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, he 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 tin address writ-
_  ten boldly across tho cover.
"I am fanciful enough to imagine
anything to-night," he reilccted with
some impatience: \'l could swear
that that writing is' perfectly familiar to me, and I cannot tp'ossibly
■have seen it before. It is an un-
common hand, too."
When he reached his room, he began mechanically to empty his ccat
pockets. ' The first thing he drew
out was a large envelope addressed
, to Mary Forester: he wondered to
find it in his possession, until, noting traces of mud on one side and of
damp on the otiier, he recollected of
having found it at the Manse gate
the night before..
"I know this handwriting,'at all
events." he 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 the
identity of Mary's correspondent.
"But how can I know his writing so
well?" he questioned slowly. "T
have .certainly seen it quite lately:
where? .'. . In church this evening,
of course, on the music. . . But I
knew it then, I had seen it before
that:  where? where?" .
Light flashed on him. Ue tossed
the papers out of the box, unfolded
Mark Presage's letters and held one
of them beside Mary's envelope—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 see clearly."
It * was easy to reckon on sleep,
but the moment he lay down it fled
from h'im. 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.
ITow came those two men to write
so exactly alike? Numbers of handwritings resemble each other. But
this was a case of identity, not of
resemblance; and the style of writing was so uncommon, it must be
the work of one person. But the
names        were different] To
change one's name was
not an unheard - of pro
ceeding. But    (iavin   Wishart   was
said to be amiable, generous, - high-
principled; whereas .Mark Presslie
was a thief and a forger and a coward. Good reason for him to change
his name. Suppose he had changed
it, to Gavins Wishart — what then?
"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 it ou", for' it was less endurable
than wakefulness.    ",-."'.'
This was not Glasgow, it was
Santa Cruz. He was standing nr "-
Mole, alone but for that still figure
seated beside him. Alan's eyes were
wide open, they had in them a fiercely questioning look. What was it
they were trying to say? "Tell me,
Alan," he heard his own voice ask
"who 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
iWishart?" He dared not meet those
questioning eyes. He looked 'across
the sea.to Grand Canary. It had
grown oddly dwarfed and shrunk. It
was not Grand Canary at all, but
Arran; and this was not Tenerife, but
the Feldrossan shore. Mary was he-
side him. "Oh, Mary
could have loved me!
dear. I would have been content with
so little.    1 hu\e loved you for fifteen
years,   Mary,   how1 can  1  help  loving
you now?   Lift  up your eyes  to     ine,
why   do     you      keep     them      turned
away?"  She lifts  them  up, and     her
eyes' and  her  lips (.sob  out the samo
question,      "Who  is    Gavin Wishart?
Who is Ca-**in Wishart?"    And all the
time there is 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 is  drowned by   a
louder sound; is it the sea, or liuisxc?
It grows louder, and loudei; it must
be an     organ.       Xo,  it  is not  that
either.    It is a perfect roar of sound,
and there i.s no music in it; but there
aro  words.     What  are  they?      They
grow m0re and more distinct. Thousands   of  voices  are dinning  into    hrs
ears the question—Who is Gavin Wishart?     Who  is  Ca — a -L~ ah!     He
awakened  himself  with  a shuddering
cry, to hear the* breakfast gong boom
its' summons  through  the hotel.
His dream had 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

When he took up the morning paper,
he almost expected to lind in ' print
the questions that were hiiunting
him; he glanced tit the various items
of news without in the least ' tom-
.ILffiHfliijJiiig them, even the Ni^ek and
Share. .List failed to rouse his interest. Of ono certainty .only was he
conscious, he must, by some .mentis,
have these questions solved ' before
.another nightfall; to gain his end,
he found the' envelope Alan had directed to Richard., Twiss, and' then
betook  himself   to  Deane street.
]t did not surprise him in the
least, rather he felt it to be altogether appropriate, that as he entered tb£ oflice he should,meet emerging
therefrom the young man „wlio had
been his neighbor in church on the
previous evening. With an odd sense
that his dream was being continued,
ho stood aside and watched hi in, as
ho was attended obsequiously to the
door by a clerk, who observed in
reply to some low-spoken . 'remark.
"Yes indeed, Mr. Wishart, he Iboks

donee  ngiec-d   largely  in  nis  thoughts
now:   "Providence"   was   a   pleasantly   vague  and   impersonal   term,   with
which   he felt  much  more at his ease
than  with  that  other term—-"God."
Tie  bcliewd  that in his present very
critical situation he deserved at least
as   much  pity,  as   hltune:   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 wa.s  it his choice
to    have      among- his  clients  a inun
with such superabundant wealth and
such  a   foolishly    confiding      disposition as belonged to old  Gavin Wishart. ,   Without any special  desire    on
his   part,   lie  had   been   borne     upon
tiie  shoulders   of  Circumstance     into
so  prominent  a position  in  tlie     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 lie listened
to him, (Richard's excited apprehension sank to'rest.
"You need a change, you should
take a holiday," Gavin1 urged' at
"'Impossible,','      sighed   the lawyer.
Kichard Twiss had returned to his
ollico that Thursday morning", after
tiii absence of ten days. Me was
§till very weak and feeble, and one
piece of intelligence given him with
his letters added to his sense of helplessness; Mr. Gavin Wishart, who had
called several times to see him, was
to .return this morning at 10.30, it
was 10 o'clock now. Richard reminded himself of his doctor's order,
strictly enjoined -^— "Avoid all worry and excitement," such a simple
easy rule!
As he, sat at his writing table, he
let his .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
them. He saw this, when he raised
his eyes to meet those of his reflection looking down' at him from the
mirror in the centre recess; he stnied
at his face in some dismay, the
feebleness he feared was evidenced
there. "Don't you lose your nerve,
Pick," he implored himself in a low
,ii   was only recently  that    he   had
become subject  to   those  attacks     bf
excruciating     pain,   of     which  Gavin
had   witnessed   one.     Twiss     was     a
coward  where   physical  suffering  was
concerned,   the   mere   apprehension   of
it   reduced   him   at   times   to   an     extremity   of   terror;     perhaps   his     experience was sufficiently awful to excuse   him.       It   chanced   that  so     far
each attack had be.-n preceded by  the
news   of   heavy   loss   in   ono   of      1he
many speculations into which he hud
plunged,  and     loss     and agony wore
now   inseparably   connected     in     his1''
in bid.        At      present    as    there  were
many losses, he lived in a demoralizing state  of fright,  his  mind wns  off
,lhe   balance,      lie     besought     himself
o\er, and   over  again   not   to   lo.sr*  his
nerve—his  nerve,     that    had  carried

man was a scamp: he entertained no sentimental delusions on
the subject, hu knew his character
perfectly well. It .was to his interests that others should believe him
to he a good man, generous, religious, worthy of implicit (rusi: and
this was i he impression he had successfully created for years. But l;it-
terly, suspicions of him had ben
manifested in one or two directions,
and he could not afford to be' suspected: He redoubled his exertions,
undergoing much trouble and inconvenience,, undertaking many arduous
and distasteful tasks, that he might.
retain his hold upon that section of
the community- .which it Was his
object  to  deceive.
This suffering had not entered  into
his calculations-^—it .maimed . hirii,'-    it
paralyzed  him,   it weakened    his''intellect.        He had  gradually allowed
himself to become possessed with tho
idea,  not., frequently cherished  by  the
victims of pain,  that reparation was
due to him for the anguish' he underwent,   that  a  recompense  for  all   his
misery was his- by  right.     No -sooner
was   each   cruel  spasm   over,   than   lie
began     to   dream   of  the   inde.niiiilicti-
tioii    to. come:   to   his   fancy   it   took
the   shape  of  a  sudden   release    from
all   his   embarrassments,   .'from      all
fear  of ■ loss  and ' therefore  of  torture
Clearly   his  mind   was   unbalanced,   hi:
had   iii-vi.t-  before  looked   outside liiin-
si'll'   for. sal vat ion.
There was a time-piece near him;
it fascinated him to watch tlie minute hand creep .stealthily down toward the half hour. lie began fo
pity himself profoundly, surely Providence  could   not  do  less. Provi-
"1 cannot think of it. f am forced
to go into the country until Monday;  that must content nie."
"Until Monday only? Three du\s
are nothing. You should U-aVo work
altogether alone for a month."
"Ah; Mr. Wishart, you ure 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
hia  real  errand.    -He-was' distressed
by    his     companion's       appearance,
which,    now  that   it  wa.s  .so    .worn'
and      haggard,       was  a  miicl.   more
powerful      factor  in  promoting      its
owner's   interests   than   it   laid   been
formerly.'        To   ask  awkward   questions  of a   man   who .had   been  cautioned   ' against worry .seemed     brutal, but what was "to be done? From
the moment of his' entering the room
the impressions  that had eluded him
for   days  had   bugim   to   revive   with
something  of their former  intensity:
he x\vasi.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
evident. -.
"By the way, could y'ou—could
you let me have another look at
those 'Indigent' Bonds?1 I want to
make a note of their numbers for
future reference."      ■■    ' ' '    '
Ricnard rose without an instant's
hesitation, turned to the safe, ,, and
began to search his pockets for the
"By all means," he said hear.tily.
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
is that Ave did not sell out when you
—confound it all! 1 have left the
key athome." He*' looked ruefully
at Gavin, vexation and annoyance
expressing themselves in,every line of
his face. "I must leave 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 be time'enough, I
suppose? I am afraid I cannot get
ba'ck   before  Monday  evening—unless
"Xo, no; you are not to think of
cutting short your holiday on my
account," exclaimed Gavin, staggered by the readiness with which" his
proposal had been met. "Tuesday
will do perfectly well, of course;
pray don't look so concerned, Hie delay is of no consequence 'whatever."
"It is no holiday, or 1 could have
put it, off; it is a business engagement that I am obliged to keep. Hut
I aui almost certain that L could be
here on Mondav."
Gavin  protested      warmly     against
any alteration of plan being made.
"Well,-wed," said Twiss, "we will
wait until Tuesday, since you insist.
This is unpardonable negligence on
my parti but for my illness 1 should
not know how to account for it
On Tuesday, then, Mr. Wishart."
Gavin left.
"Uone      there!"     gasped     Richard,
'I m done there!     The money    must
bo raised  somehow;   how?     i     don't
know where to look for it."
He seized pen and paper and began
to* make rapid calculation*-., all hi(9
old energy roused within him by the
excitement. Reaction came directly;
he grow confused, his hand shook, he
could neither make the figures clear
nor count them.
"Damn yon, Dick, you've lost vour
nerval" he cried; flung dnwn the pen
in impotent rage, and .stared blankly
at the wretched, helpless face looking
out at liim   from   the mirror.
Suddenly   he   remembered   what     ho
had  to  dread.     Here     was     anxiety
and  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'
ho shook     in ovary   limb as one    of
those paroxysms' of terror    to which
he was constantly giving wav swept
over him.  ..lie heard voices    without
and  as   the     door   opened  he  drifted
into   the apathetic;  condition   fh.-.it  so
often follows a severe nervous strain.
A  card was  brought  to him.   <'}'e.s"
ho said slowly;   "I will see .Mr,  Cayford."      , ■'"..''
In,the  momentary  interval   following, his hand groped its way to    one
of  the pigeon holes, before him     arid
withdrew  a  paper .—  th'e  intimation
of Alan's  death.     He looked  at   certain  notes   pencilled   by  himself     beneath .'John  Cayford's signature;   they
referred   to   Messrs.   Gaza let   &     Cayford, Melbourne, and tb various Lojri-
d on  firms      with    which these gent .lemon, had dealings     Hope-bestirred   itself to overcome tlie fear in his heart;
was  Providence     at  last    about     to
open a door of escape?
When the visitor entered, he motioned him to a seat, and examined
the envelope tendered by him: it
contained a bank note and a letter.
He unfolded the note, convinced that
he would find it to be of the value
he required — it  was for £50  only.
ne dropped it o.-i thu table, and listened, apparent |\ without interest,
to ihe cvplnn.ii urn 'offcied by the
bearer of the way in which it had
come into his possession Hope, baf-
lled in one direction, became more
active in another, Richard began to
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 fa'ce,      the hopeless  expression,
the listioss  attitude,   appealed   effectively to a man  who never recognized
weakness without wishing to impart
to  it some of h*  own strength,  nor
saw  distress   without  doing  his     utmost  to  alleviate   it.     Moreover,     lie
had  been   unprepared   to   find  here   so
striking a resemblance to Alan,  a resemblance  probably  accentuated     . by
ill  health,   for Suilering  has  her     peculiar      sign     of   kinship   which     she
marks legibly in  the eyes of her children.        When     the    circumstances     of
Alan's  death  had   been   detailed,- and
Twiss,   turning     from   fhe   papers   before    him,      looked    quest ioninnly  at
his        visitor,       '.lohn      started.       so
'strangely  did   tho'gtize  now   meeting
his  resemble  that   bv   which lie  had
been  haunted   throughout his  dream.
It seemed    to     him   entirely   without
his   volition   that   tlie   words   escaped
him,   "Who  i.s Mark  Cress lie?"
"Mark I'resslie!" repealed Kieii-ird
wondcringly. "SVhy do you ask nw
about  hiui?" '    ,
"'Vour brothei' spoke of him constantly.* 1 thoimht he'might not
have heard of  Allan's death."
"Ves, he has heard; I told him.
Alan spoke of him as Mark I're-ihli**,
,\ on say: he knew nothing, then, of
his changed name and changed circumstances."
Changed  name! Changed  circum
stances! The, terrors of tho tight
yere returning. Mark Presslie was
a .thief and a forger and a, coward.
Good reason for him to change his
name. Suppose he had changed it,
to— c
"And you, -Mr. 'Ca.word,.'; pursued
Richard, "surely you must he hi
stranger hero to be ignbrant . f oii'r
young philanthropist, our patron of
arts and charities, formerly a fe'low
cle.-k of my brother's, now •■, mini
of  fortune,."
"Practically I am a stranger.  Tell
nie the name."
"Gavin   Wishart."
•lohn leaned back ,in his chair, his
mind filled with one thought, Mary!
.Mary looking up at him'with '..i,»"r-
ful eyes and trembling' lips, M'arv
sobbing out the question—Who is
Gavin- Wishart? , Turn your p> es
away,  Mary,   I  can't answer y,*.u.
"i am greatly indebted to you'for
your kindness to1 my brother,"
Twiss was saying. "Vou spoke of
having been with him when,'he died.
Bid he suffer pain?"
"None, none at all:, thoro coulJ not
have been a more' peaceful death."
"Ah, Lam'glad. ' Pain is a. dreadful thing, it makes such cowards 'of
us. I speak from experience. I
suffer  much." <-
•"1 can see that," said John compassionately, rousing himself to consider Twiss, "you look ill. lf ,you
want more information from me
about your brother, I had perhaps
better come at some other time when
you   are feeling  stronger."
"I beg 'you to stay! 1 have —
there; are—I must ask you about
Alan. Poor lad, poor misguided
lad! Did he speak to you of his
wrong doing? Did he shew- sigmj of
"He  was   innocent. Believe  me,'
the suspicions  against him   were  unfounded."
"He told 3'ou so, of course. They
were well founded, • too well founded. He died, then, unrepentant,
with   a  lie   ou   his     lips. Aly   poor
brother!     ]   have  never ceased  to   reproach    myself. 1      ought to have
been   lenient,   forbearing;   instead,     I
wrote Alan  a cruel,   heartless  letter"
(of which, rejected Richard, you havo
certainly      heard).      "No   one  knows
how   the      catastrophe   shocked   mu.
how  1 suffered      when  1   thought  of
his. disgrace.     That  suffering  left  its
mark;  it' could  not   fail   to  do  so;  I
contracted then the disease that wilt
kill,   wheu   it  i.s   tired  of torturing."
He raised     is hand to his. heart, and
then      di.  ,,/ed   it,   as  though      that
slight   exertion   were   too   much     for
him.     lie  had   uttered  sentence  very
slowly,   in  a  dreary   monotone    with
sad  eyes  persistently  fixed   upon  his
listener:  the slow speech seemed  the
result of weakness,   the sod eyes expressed nothing but hopeless sorrow.
John   debated.     With   one   sentence
he could  clear  Alan's  name;   he was
urgently   prompted   to   give   voice   to
it and lighten  the weight of grief by
which   Twiss   .seemed   to   be   crushed:
unfortunately.      that  sentence  would
incriminate   Presslie."    What   lie    had
undertaken,      was     to place the evidence    he    held   in       Mr.    Anderson's
hands,   and   until   this   was   done   he
believed   himself   bound   to   be  silent'
flu might not do more than  look his
sympathy.      Richard's, eyes,   meeting
his,'grew suddenly eager.
