A leu Ulm a Ith the papers on desk for quite a Little while before 1 j Iota ored the two telegrams and j fact that i d have to to and stick i knife into or. Nor j a. When remember. I shoved i a os._-,-s into Tny pocket to locked j the lights and started to to up a Atid it for the Boss. The outer door of the Otvis i on me was t it j "1 Don t know anything about n door. I but the night that they found you Alt i Burnt and crippled lying at the foot of your office stairs was three Days ago. You Hove been out of your head i nearly All the time Ever and crippled what Bop i Pend to me Nisle Ann nobody knows not even the Doc tors. We be been hoping that some Day you d be Able to Tell us. Can t i you Tell me now Al male of j i told her nil there was to Tell mumbling around among the won leaning across a then she told my j How the Headquarters watchman had found me about Midnight with my right hand scorched Black and the res of me Nipa Routly dead and ready to be burled. The ambulance surgeon had insisted and was still insisting nay morning in in been a Milin Lluc a re hut there were no wires at nil in the i lower Hill. And nothing stronger than an incandescent Light current in the entire office building. And you Sny i be been Here hanging on by my eyelashes for three tonys what has been going on in All that time. Balsle Ann Riason t anybody been Here to see me she gave a Little nod. Everybody nearly. Or. Van Britt has been up every Day and sometimes twice a Day. He has been awfully anxious for you to come but or. N or Cross 1 queried. Has t he Heen tip she Shook her head and turned her face away and she was looking straight out of the window at the setting Sun when she asked. When was the last time you saw or. Xor Cross Al male 1 choked a Little Over a big scare that seemed to Rush up out of the bed clothes to smother me. But i made out to answer her question Tell a Tnp her How or. Xor Cross had left the j of Iee maybe half an hour or so before i i did that night going up town with i or. Ill Ley. Then i asked her Why a she wanted to knew j because nobody has seen him since j a Little later that same she i saying it very softly and with out turning her head. And then or. Van Britt found a letter from or. I Xor Cross on his desk the next morning. It was just a Little typewritten note on a hotel Bullard letter Sheet say ing that he had made up his mind that the Pioneer Short line was t i Worth fighting for and that he was resigning and taking the Midnight i train for the i sat straight up in bed i should i have had to do it if both anus had been Burnt to a Crisp Clear to the i shoulders. Resigned gave up and ran away i Don t believe that for a single minute. Balsle Ann i burst out. She was shaking her head again still without turning her face so that i could see in i i m afraid it s All True Al male. There were two telegrams that came to or. Xor Cross the night he went j away one from or. Chadwick and the other from or. Dunton. I heard or. Van Britt telling Cousin Sheila what the messages were. He d seen the copies of them that they keep in the Telegraph it was on my Tongue s end to Sny that or. Xor Cross never had seen those two telegrams because i had them in Tny pocket and was on my Way to deliver them when i got shot hut i did t. Instead i and you think that was Why or. Xor Cross threw up his hands and ran away to i Don t think anything of the sort. I know what it was and you know what it was and at that she turned around and pushed me gently Down among the pillows. What was it i whispered More than half afraid that i was going to hear a confirmation of my own breathtaking conviction. And i heard it All right. It was what i was telling you about that same evening you remember Down in the Hall when you brought the mowers for Cousin Sheila. You told him what i told you Didu t you to i did t have a Chance not any real then somebody else told him Jimme and that is the reason he has resigned and gone away. Or. Vim Britt thinks it was on account of the two messages from or. Chadwick and or. Dunton and that is Why he wants to talk to you about it. But you know and i know Al male dear and for Cousin Sheila s Sake and or. Xor Crosse must never Lisp it to a human soul. A new general manager has been appointed and he is on his Way out Here from now York. Everything has gone to pieces on the Railroad and All of or. Xor Cross friends Are getting ready to resign. In t it perfectly heart breaking it was it was so heart break no that i just gasped once or twice and went off the Hooks again with Balsle Ann s frightened Little shriek ringing in Tuy ears As she tried to hold Back from slipping Over the Edge gone Ooi of the big Era eyes and u look in them As if she had suddenly become so Wise that nobody could Ever fool her. You lire feeling better now she asked when she found me staring at her. I told her i guessed 1 was but that my hand Hurt me some. Sou have Hal a great Shock of some kind besides the Burn Al male she rejoined folding up the bed covers so that the bandaged hand would rest easier. The doctors Are nil puzzled. Does your head feel quite Clear now so that you can think it feels is if i had n crazy clock in it i . But the thinking part is All right. Have you heard anything from or. Xor Cross yet Xot a word. We have been hoping that you could Tell us something when you should recover Sulli Clenty to talk. Can t you Al male remember tag what Balsle Ann had told me just before i went off the Hooks 1 thought i might Tell her a lot if i dared to. But that would t do. So i just "1 told Balsle Ann All i knew about or. Xor Cross. He left the office some Little time before i did with or. Ripley. I did t know where they were they went to the hotel she helped out. Or. Ripley says they sat in the lobby until after ten o clock and then or. Xor Cross went up to his of course i knew that or. Ripley knew All about the Hutch auction but if he had t told her i was t going to Tell her. There was some trouble in connection with or. Hatch that evening was t there she asked. Hatch had some trouble yes. But i guess the Boss did t have Uny 1 replied. Tell me about it she commanded and told her just is Little As i could How Hatch had had in interview with the Boss earlier in the evening while i was away. It was t a quarrel she suggested. Why should they quarrel i asked she Shook her head. You Are sparring with me Al male in some mistaken idea of being Loyal to or Xor Cross. Y of need to you know. Or. Xor Cross has told me All about his plans he has even been generous enough to say that. I helped him make them. That is Why i cannot understand Way he should do is he has done or at least As everybody believes he has i saw How it was. She was trying to find some explanation that would Clear the Boss and perhaps implicate the Hatch crowd. I could t Tell her the real reason Why he had run Awny. Balsle Ann had been right As right about that we must keep it to our two selves. But i tried to let her Down easy. Or. Van Britt has told you about those two telegrams that came after or. Xor Cross left the office i still covering up the fact that the telegrams had t been delivered that they were probably in the pocket of my coat right now wherever that was. They were enough to make any Man throw up his hands and quit i should no she insisted looking me straight in the eyes. You Are not telling the truth now Al male. You know or. Xor Cross better than any of us and you know that it in t the least Little bit like Hutu to walk out and leave everything to go to wreck. Have you Ever known of his doing anything like that before i had to admit that i had to that on the other hand it was the very thing you d least expect him to do. But at the same time i had to hang on to my Sham belief that it was the thing he had done either that or Tell her the truth. Every Man reaches his limit some time i protested. What was or. Xor Cross to do i d like to know with or. Chadwick getting seared out and or. Dunton threatening to fro him the thing he would t do would be to go off and leave All of his friends or. Vau Britt and or. Hor Nack and nil the rest to fight it out alone. Y of know that As Well As 1 do Al male Dodds if you won t take my theory you must have one of ," i not knowing what else to say. I have she flashed Back and i Wunt you to hurry and get Well so that you can help me Trace it me i queried yes you. The others Are All so stupid even or. Van Britt and or. Ripley they insist that or. Xor Cross went East to see and talk with or. Hurry up and get Well Al mate to Yon can hoi tin Well enough now if they la let me get Xot tonight tomorrow then or. Van Britt is with Cousin Basil he has been very anxious to talk with you As soon As you were Able to talk. May i Send him tip of course i yes and pretty soon after she went away our one and Only millionaire came in. He looked As he always did just is if he had that minute stepped out of a turkish Bath where hey have and scrub and polish a Man till he shines. How Are you Jimmie he rapped out. Glad to see you on Earth Tipan. Feeling u Little More lit. Tonight 1 told him i did t Thilak it would take More than half a dozen fellow.-, of my size to Knock me out. Inn 1 was gain Long. Then he Sal Down and put me of the question rack. 1 gave him we must stand by him and defend me chapter i what every Man knows i was t gone very Long on this second excursion into the woozy i Voories. Though it was night time and Hie shaded electric Light was turned on when i opened my eyes and found mrs. Sheila sitting by the bedside. The change la mrs. Shell sort of made me gasp. She was t any less pretty As she sat there with iter hands clasped la her hip. But she was different sober mud with the laugh Oil you Are sparring with me Chadwick. They have found out that or. Clad Wick left Chicago the Day after he sent shut Telegram to go up into the Camu iltis Woods to look it some mines or something. They say that or. Norcross bus followed him. And that is Why they Don t hear anything from what do Yon Taluk i asked. She Didu t answer right away and in the Little pause i Sun u sort of frightened look come into her eyes. Out Uli Hue was i want you to All i and except that thing about the undelivered telegrams and two or three others that i could t give Hui or anybody. We re in pretty and shape Aren t we 1 suggested. We could t be in worse was the Way he put it. Then he told me a Little More than Maisle Ann had How president Dunton had wired to Stop All the betterment work on the Short line until the new general manager could get on the ground How the local capitalists at the head of the new citizens storage & warehouse organization were scared plumb out of their shoes and were afraid to make a move and How the newspapers All Over the state were saying that it was just what they had expected that the Railroad was crooked in Root and Branch and that a Good Man could t stay with it Long enough to get his breath. Then the new general manager has been appointed i asked. He nodded. Some fellow by the name of Dismuke. I Don t know Hutn and neither does Lorn ask. He is on his Way West now they or. Xor Cross has t shown up at or. Chadwick s Chicago offices i ventured. To. The Telegraph people have been wiring everywhere and can t gel any Trace of Tell them to try in Lisburg. That s where his people "1 know he and he made a note of the address on the Back of All envelope. Then he came at me again on the direct us a lawyer would say. You be been closer to Xor Cross in an intimate Way than any of us Joni Nile Haven t you seen or heard something that would help to turn a Little More Light of this Dun mule blow up i had to outside of the one thing i could t talk about and i told him so and it this he let Nie see a Little More of what was going on in his own mind. You re one of us in a Way Al male and i can talk freely to you. Mrs. Macrae insists that there hns been foul Piny of some sort. You Sny you weren t present when Ilitch called on Xor Cross at the office that night to i Camo in just after Hatch went did Xor Cross Sny anything to make you think there and been a fight he told to that Ilitch was abusive and had made threats in u business in a business Way what do you mean by that i quoted the Boss own words is nearly As i could recall them. So Hatch did make a threat then can you add anything More i could list i did t want to or. Van Britt did t know anything about the Creek siding hold up or 1 supposed he did to and i did t warn to be the first one to Tell him. Besides the whole business was beside the Murk. Mulsie Ann knew and i knew that the Boss Strong and unbreakable is he was in other ways and simply thrown up his hands and quit because somebody and told Hutn that mrs. Shell and u husband living. So i just nothing that would help out and after to had talked a Little while longer our Only Nilli Otmaro went Down stairs again. It s so funny How things change a round for a person just by giving them time to sort of shake Down into place and fit themselves together. After a while the Chin Edge of the wedge that mrs Sheila and been trying to drive into Nie began to take hold. Just a let to in spite of what 1 knew or thought i knew. Wus it barely possible after All that there had been foul play of some sort in the first place something had been done to me by somebody it was a sure Thlu that 1 had t crippled and half killed Wyt Seu All by Tny loue Sonie. Then they had suld Flint the Boss stayed up with or. Ripley that night until after ten o clock and had then gone up to so to bed. That being the , How could anybody have got to blow he tween that Tetuo and the Leav ing time of run Midnight past mail to Tell him about mrs. Sheila anyway it was stacked up it made a three cornered Puzzle needing gome body to tackle it right away and when i finally went to sleep it was with the notion that sick or no sick i was going to turn out Early in the morning and get Busy i was Well enough to got up the next morning and when i phoned to or. Van Britt to sent his car out to the major s to take my Down to Tho office. Just before i left Tho House mrs. Miolla waylaid me and after telling me that i must lib careful and not take cold in the Burnt hand she put in another word about the Boss disappearance. I want you to remember what i Hist night. Al male and not let the others talk you Over into the belief that or. Xor Cross hns gone away Hogan of he was either discouraged or afraid. He would t do that you know it and i know it to Are his friends you and 1. And we must stand by him and defend him when to in t hero to defend it did me Good to hear her talk that Way. I Hail been sort of getting ready to dislike her for letting the Boss get in so deep and not telling him straight out that she was o married woman and he must to but when 1 saw that she was trying to be just is Loyal to him is i was it pulled me Over to her Side again. Though the Boss disappearance was now four Days old things were still in a sort of Daze Down at the Roll Road offices. Or. Van Britt being the general superintendent and next in command and moved Ever into Tho j l o s office and Fred May was doing j his shorthand work. They would t let me do anything much i could t j do much Wotli my right Arm in a Slang so i had a Chance to hang around and size up the situation. If j you want to know How it sized up you can take it from me that it was pretty bad. People All along the line i were bombarding or. Van Britt with i letters and telegrams wanting to know what was going to be done and what the change in management was go ing to mean for the Public and All that. You see. Or. Xor Cross Hail Laid out n mighty attractive program in the Little time he had been it the wheel and now it looked is if it was j All going to be dumped into the ditch i suffered All a woman jew.

In North Fukien province there dwelt an artist who painted pictures on silk for the Gentry of his Little Village. The people in this secluded Hamlet nestled amid the Bills had never seen automobiles or air planes nor did they take the Long journey to Shanghai to watch the great steamers come in Laden with merchandise and messages from the ports of the Worl. But they knew the words of confucius and lao tse Ond they lived and died with simple dignity As their fathers had done before them. Une evening the artist who had been working All Day on a memorial portrait strolled out into the dark Cool Street to refresh his tired soul writes Elsie f. Well in Asia mag Azine. The tiny while Church of the i foreign god beyond the Tea shop was j brilliantly lighted. The artist stood a moment in the open door. The Young missionary was talking most eloquently he was not preaching but he seemed to be telling stories that were j is fascinating As those recited in the bazaars. Almost la spite of himself the artist Sank unobtrusively into an j empty seat. For the first time he j heard some of the Beautiful old stories of the Bible which have held the peo j pie of the West enthralled for 2,000 years.
