Home How he had longed for that time to come now it suddenly appeared to him that he had no Home. The stately old fashioned mansion that he loved would be Well aired and warmed to receive him on the ctr of december for he had already sent the order to Sam and his wife. But was that All there was of Home the Good old couple would Welcome him to sleep and Bath and breakfast. But even that would in crease their cares and necessitate More servants in the House to annoy them. It could not prove any real pleasure to them. What is there after All in this going Home that i be been longing he asked himself and the loneliness in him answered he was sitting at one of the Little tables smoking in that wondrously pictures tie Garden stretching Between the Broad and Beautiful Chiajan and the incomparable Eay of Maples. San air Usu in Okcu Tiiu tit Hill behind Capri Lay a Bright Dot on the Blue water and flashed As the Sun Down like a Diamond set in a Mirror of Ruby and Sapphire. The Black murderer of Pompeii and Herculaneum Drew a Roj Al Tynan Mantle about his rugged sides and shrank away in the deepening gloom till Only his grim lava Shadow stood in the gloaming against the sky under the eternal Pil Lar of smoke and Down the Long Garden lamps hashed out enhancing its marvelous Beauty. In the extravaganza of dreams Rob Ert Stainton dreamed not of the Home that would be but of the Home that might be. Lie dreamed of Esther Thorndike there Bis real wife. Suddenly the banker s daughter usurped the place and the Home changed to his office. He heard her voice. He saw her eyes.

And yet it caught his breath and for a moment he could not move. Iler father was beside her at one of the Little tables. He was listening to the music. She seemed unconscious almost As though asleep and dreaming dream ing some delightful dream from which it would be cruelty to Rouse her. Ifor a moment Stanton s very life seemed to stand a boat at the vortex of the norwegian Pool stops for an instant shudders draws Back a hand breadth then plunges and is engulfed. And the whirling Pool was those flashing it would have been easy to make the plunge. It required a superhuman struggle to drag himself Back from the spell. Is not asking her to help me win my he muttered. Grinding his Teeth he deliberately lifted his hat. Then she woke with a Start. For a moment she looked it him i resolutely. Her head inclined just perceptibly and she looked away. Stanton to hesitate but his heart was throbbing. His Muscles were quiver ing. He did not dare to Trust them. Xot Here. It is too be said. But before i sleep i must see it was impose Ible to sit there yet he would not have her think that she drove him too easily. Slowly lie settled his Bill and very slowly made the usual preparations for departure but when at the last moment he glanced towards her again the face was still turned away from him. She was talking with her father. It Ith a troubled sigh he walked slowly away it was encouraging. A hand was Laid upon his shoulder and a voice said beg Pardon sir my name s Brad Broddon. Of Braddon Burridge Bankers Hevr you know the firm. You won a Case against us a year ago. Were right and you knew it. But you twisted our witnesses about till every one of pm was ready to swear that he had never spoken the truth in All his life. Never Mann. It was Liui Iress.

Hope to see More of and he was gone. Stanton watched As he disappeared in the crowd and with a half sigh half Niile remarked if she thinks he is growing old she s chapter x. If the meeting had been the work ing out of his own plans Stanton would have carried his message on his Tongue. As it was he held it More in deference for an Opportunity that slow to come. Your trip has changed you till i believe your friends at Home will hardly know that it is really miss Braddon said in response to a Passine compliment. You would t have said that a year ago. You d just have looked me Over solemnly and remarked he. You Mist have been out of doors. You have freckles on your nose i certainly had a vast collection of disagreeable Stanton replied seeing his first Opportunity. I be Dis covered some of them and been making a struggle to dislodge them. I m glad if you see a change for you knew me at my worst and i m heartily ashamed of it. Any change at All must be for the of or. Stanton what an she exclaimed. Of course i knew you at your worst but truly that worst was so much better than the Best i Ever knew of hosts of people who think themselves very Good that i have Al ways considered you a remarkably Model Man. Papa says it s All because you re an Olmstead and could t be anything else. And Don t you think we re All of us a Little ashamed every time we look Back Lam. If i weren t i should t think i was making any you re comforting to say the stauton replied and was going on to press the Opportunity when miss Erad Don interrupted we saw by the paper that you were soon to leave for Home. What a lion they will make of no because you deserve it of to be Tor or. Stanton if i did t know you i should think All sorts of things but instead i la begin and Tell you All about what you know just As Well As the rest of us Only you Don t see it in the same Light. Did t you make a great hero of a ourself alien your steadier was captured by pirates in the Gulf of indeed i did not miss Stanton exclaimed and his Cheeks flushed. I swung a Rusty sword in the face of a few chinese cowards and they ran without a scratch. That was hero ism of course i Don t know All tie particulars but i m sure the King of Siam thought so or he would t have decorated you with an order. The new York papers thought so or they d not have printed so much about it. The British government thought so or in would not have remembered it till you reached London two months Agi. And presented you with a medal. But How was it about your being almost i led by a Tiger in India while saving the life of a Little native girl there was a Story printed about that was hardly Hurt a ton re plied thoroughly confused.

He said he could t see Tow a lawyer could possibly know so much about vainly Stanton endeavoured to take another step toward the end he had in View. Before the evening was past miss Braddon had invited him to drive with them to Vesuvius the next Day. And to sit in their Box at the opera tie next evening. The second Day was a failure like the first so far As the message was concerned while with every atom of Roan Hood in him Stanton struggled to hold himself Back from what he knew would be a fatal plunge into that bewildering Pool. Why should she fascinate him till his heart reeled to woman had so much As attracted him before and now. Of Aii tin is when it must not be it knows that. I am married thinks herself he asked himself. I Hope she Issaie. H not. Sare y i am not worthy of Esther Thorndike a i some times when she looks at me that Way As though she were ready to put he round my neck.
