Ueo Ousa a Young gentleman or amp oae Cia regard might to an appreciable slight. That was Tho conclusion which she reached without any visible sign that her careless eyes were conveying any sort of impression to her mind. As it was he looked an unusually Burly specimen of the men to whom isolation from City life had imparted an aspect of barbarians. Before he had uttered another word she realized that he was wholly engrossed in the matter of his telegrams and had no thought of the individuality of the listener. Not Only was she not the thing that made him wait but she might As Well have been old ugly or a Man if Only she had ears to hear. It was a summer afternoon and the Clear Balmy weather was seasonable. Tile removal of protective Canvas had left the Structure an open shed Over the front of which Hung the boughs of the two Trees against whose massive trunks it leaned. Gerald Heath reached up with both hands and hold Tho foliage aside. A do you get an unobstructed View a he asked. A now eve helped Lay out railroads through Many a place where it was a shame to let trains go faster than a mile a Day. Eve surveyed routes that ought to provide special trains for passengers with eyes in their Heads trains with Speed graduated Between sixty Miles an hour and sixty hours a mile. It is an outrage on nature and Art that travellers should Ever be whisked past Overlook without a Good Chance to see what we re looking at. That Why i wrote to the president of the company a month ago telling him How a slight deviation from the surveyed line would enable passengers to get what s in our View now. He asked How much the line would be lengthened by my plan. A Hundred Yards i answered. And i submitted a map showing How the tracks after coming out from the Tunnel might make a Small Detour to this very spot instead of going behind a mass of rocks a that will completely hide this a and a comprehensive gesture of one Arm Fol Lowed his sweep of vision. Places that get their names on impulse Are Apt to have appropriate ones. Camps of railway makers in a hitherto unbroken country Are not often mis called. An ensuing town on the same site May be unmeaning by named As a permanency but the inspirations that afford transient nomenclature Are usually descriptive. It was so in the Case of Overlook. The railway tunnelled through the Mountain and emerged at a height of a thousand feet above a wide Valley. Mary had daily and All Day Long sat overlooking the Prospect. It had astonished and enchanted her at first but familiarity had blunted the keenness of her appreciation. As shown to her anew it was like a fresh disclose Are. Gerald Heath stood holding the boughs aside which otherwise obscured a part of the View. He appeared to feel that if he was not the Painter of this enormous landscape he at least had the proprietary interest of a discoverer and it was with something of the air of an Art collector proudly extolling his choicest Possession that he turned his eyes from it to Mary Warriner. The expression of admiration on her face although quiet and delicate was quite satisfactory for a moment ouly and then the Delight passed out of her visage As though expelled by some physical Pang. It was the suddenness of the change for it was of itself very slight that made it perceptible. Gerald instinctively turned to look for the cause. Into the picture had come a human figure. A few Yards in front of the hut stood a Man. In relation to the landscape far beyond he was Gigantic and the Shade of the Trees made him Devilish y Black by contrast with the sunlight of heaven that illumined the rest. He was thus for an instant in Silhouette and it chanced that his Sharp outlines included a facial profile with the x>oint8 of a Mustache and Beard giving satanic suggestion to an accidental attitude of malicious intrusion. The illusion was almost startling but it was momentary and then the form became the commonplace one of Tonio Gravelly who walked under the shelter. A a do a i Gentrude a he asked with an italian accent and an italian hearing. A i suppose not he thee yes a Placa bees Ness a Mary a Small departure from a Businesslike perfunctory manner ended at once. She took the scrap of paper which Ravelli Laid on her desk Aud without a word translated its writing into telegraphic Clicks. Ravelli was a sub contractor and this was one of his frequent communications with officials at the company a City office. The response was Likely to be immediate and he waited for it. A to get the full value of this View a Gerald Heath resumed and now he addressed himself to Mary directly As though with almost a purpose of ignoring Ravalli to whose greeting he had barely responded a you need to come upon it suddenly As i once did. We had been for months blasting and digging through the Mountain. Every Days duty in that Hole was like a spell of imprisonment in a dark Damp Dungeon. And your men Ravelli looked like a Chain gang of a you Wohla no dare say so mooch to Theira faces a Ravelli retorted with an insolence that was unmistakably intentional a ooh i did no to mean a reflection on them a said Gerald disregarding the other s quarrelsome aggressiveness.
