CHAPTER XXIV—Continued. slble. He rose and crept silently Into
the room where Roman lay. A single
candle was burning low In Its socket.
Bv Its faint flickering glow the waxen
lace and folded hands seemed not
dead, but only at peace. Mark looked
long at him, as though Roman held
the answer to hlB questions. Once he
leaned over, whispering.
"What have you found, Roman? Is
It Blmple there? Is there a new birth
In which mistakes can be paid for?
... I want to pay."
Together he and Mark dragged Piotr
to the cab and forced htm within
Piotr, dazed by Mark's appearance, re-
sisted but feebly.
Before the grim majesty of ap-
proaching death even Piotr's madness
was abashed. The supreme conscious-
ness received back the atom that,
when imprisoned In flesh, had been
Roman. It was Kazla who saw.
"He Is dead."
The Matka uttered a low moan, then
became silent again, resumed her rigid
gazing at the not less still body. Piotr's
hand passed over his eyes In a bewil-
dered gesture. The woman who kept
the door made the si§n of the cross
and went quietly out.
Kazia bent over to kiss Roman's
forehead. Then Piotr came out of his
daze. He caught her roughly and drew
"You're not fit to touch him."
She turned and went slowly Into
the kitchen. Piotr followed.
He confronted her and Mark. "You
can go now, both of you."
"Oh, Piotr, not now!" Kazla began
pleadingly. "The Matka needs me
"We need nothing from you. We
weren't good enough for you once.
You left us to be a fine lady. Now we
don't want you."
"But I came back and you wouldn't
let me stay."
"Yes, when you found that Jim
Whiting couldn't give you what you
wanted. You thought you could use
us then—as he did." He nodded to-
ward Mark. "How," his teeth bared
In an ugly accusing leer, "how did the
Hunky girl get to be such a fine lady?'
"Be still!" Mark stepped close tc
him, sternly. "Isn't there any decency
In that cracked mind of yours? Re-
member she came to them," he pointed
toward the little bedroom, "when they
needed some one. You were out fill-
ing the streets with your blackguardly
rant And whose money do you think
had to keep them alive because you
wouldn't do a man's work?"
"A man's work!" Piotr laughed, a
horrible startling cackle. "To a cracked
brain that isn't to betray and gouge
and drive—" He broke off. "Do you
mean It was her money?"
"Who else would have cared?"
Piotr went back into the death room,
clutched his mother by the shoulder
and shook her cruelly. "Tell me," he
cried in her tongue, "have you taken
money from her—that woman—when
I told you what she was ?"
The Matka shrank back from his
vehemence. "I had to—to buy things
to keep him alive."
Piotr, releasing her, stared, his
mouth working queerly. "Even you're

kitchen, taking up his hat from the

the door. There he turned, facing

With an effort she recalled herselt
to the situation. "You had better go
now. 1 must take care of the Matka.
Will you please telephone to the hos-
pital that 1 shan't be back tonight?"
"But I can't leave you alone here,
while Piotr's at large. I'm going out
to arrange for tomorrow. Then 111

"It may be best," she agreed.
Two hours later he returned and

as he entered, then became still. He

It was two days after the funeral.
Mark had seen Kazia but for a few
minutes, merely long enough to learn
her new plans, and then Hanka had
been present. Kazla proposed to take
care of her, and that they might not
have to be apart, to give up her fine
position at the hospital; she thought
she cpuld obtain a new one that would
take up only her days. She had, of
course, to find a new apartment.
All day Hanka had been alone in the
dismantled flat, thinking not of him
who had gone but of the woman who
had assumed her protection. Often
her head shook in troubled gesture.
Hanka had not lost the habit of seeing
and understanding many things from
her shadowy corner. Not out of grief
for the dead, she knew, had the look
that haunted her come into Kazia
The dinner was over, the dishes
washed and put away; this being part
of Hanka's share in the new division
of labor. She went into the little bed
room whither Kazia had gone to dress.
But at the door she stopped, unnoticed.
looking at the figure that lay motion-
less and face downward on the bed.
She started to steal away, then turned
again and went timidly to the bedside.
She laid a gentle hand on Kazia's hair.
"Little Kazia," she murmured, half
frightened at her boldness, "what is

to be a burden. 1 can go."
"No, no! You musn't leave me. I'm
"Heart tired. Ib it because of him—
"1 have no lover."
Kazla rose wearily, and going to the
mirror, began to take down her hair.
The thick soft tresses fell tumbling
ground her. Hanka, in troubled won-
der, watched the round arm that
wielded the comb, the smooth firm
shoulders. At Kazia's age Hanka had
already begun to wither into an un-
comeliness that men passed by unde-
siring. She went over to the dressing
woman and touched timidly the firm,
still youthful flesh.
"You are like your mother."
"What was she like?"
"She was like you." Kazia did not
smile. "Men saw her and wanted her."
The comb became still. "Did she—
did .she love my father?"
"Such a love I have never seen."
It had been dark almost an hour
when the bell rang. HankA heard
Kazia going to the door and a startled
exclamation answered by a mellifluous
voice Hanka did not know. The vis-
itor was admitted and taken into the
sitting room. To the kitchen came
the murmur of Kazia's voice and his,
He had been there but a few mln
utes when his voice changed. It be-
came eager, with an undertone that
perturbed Hanka strangely. Once
Kazla uttered a low hurt cry. Hanka
rose aud crept along the little hall
She crouched in the darkness near
the sitting room door, listening In-
tently and wishing she had not been
so stupid about English.
"Am I an ogre?" the mellifluous
voice was saying.
"I do not love you."
"It Is not a question of love. I am
not old, but I have lived long enough
to prick that illusion. We scientists
know what love Is."
"I don't care for you in any way,"
Kazia answered coldly. "Mr. Quinby.

a word I can take it away. I can re-
lieve you of the necessity of working
at all. I can make it impossible for
you to find work in this city."
"My dear lady!" the stranger's voice
protested. 'I would not do that. I
would harm no one. I am a tender-
hearted man. I, too, suffer, if by chance
others suffer through me." The voice,
vibrant with emotion, would have
wrung tears of sympathy from a stone
But Hanka, as we have seen, could
not weep. "I am only trying to show
that those who enlist my Interest do
not lose by It."
"So you think I am for sale?"
"Forgive me, my dear," said Quinby, propaganda,
"but that is gross. Say rather that,

chord In my breast, it will be my pleas-
ure to be guardian of your welfare.

Hanka understood at least his last
words and she understood his tone.
She crept closer and through the craok
of the sitting room door saw Kazla
elude Qulnby's outstretched arms.
At the same moment she heard a
halting step on the Btairway. She
opened the outer door and went out
to meet Mark Trultt, whispering ex-
citedly to him in Polish. When he,
astonished by her appearance and
emotion, would have spoken, she
clapped a hand over his mouth, and
clutching him by a sleeve, drew him
into the hall. She pointed through the
Again Quinby reached toward Kazla
and again she recoiled.
"Don't—don't touch me."
"Why do you rebuff me? You're not
an ignorant child. You must have
known what my Interest In the hos-
pital and in you this year has meant
You wouldn't have taken my help un-
less you were willing to give me what
"What 1b it—what is It you want?"
"I want you to be to me what you
have been to Truitt."
"And if—if I refuse?"
"I have never yet told that I caught
Trultt and a sun-browned woman alone
in an Ottawa hotel under circum-
stances—I have no reason to love him.
I have refrained from telling only for
your sake, I—Why do you force me
to say this? 1 have no wish to be
brutal to you. Seeing you has turned my
head. But you will not—surely you
can not refuse."
She dropped back into a chair, cov-
ering her face with her hands. When
she looked up, she wore again the
strange rapt expression.
"You said," she whispered chok-
ingly, "you said—you would pay."
"Yes, yes!" he cried eagerly.
"You are trying to rob Mark Truitt
—to force him out of the company.
Will you—give that up?" Still in the
same broken whisper.
"Even that. You are worth every-
"And will you give me time—to send
him away—and never let him know?'
"It is for you to make conditions.
Ah! my dear—"
In triumph Quinby stepped toward
her and bent over to take her hand
Don't do that!" said a voice behind
Quinby whirled. For a long silent
minute the trio faced one another.
Then Mark, white of face, hands
working convulsively, went slowly to
the stupefied Quinby, who seemed
turned to stone. He did not resist
even when Mark's hand leaped up
and caught him cruelly by the throat.
He was pressed back until his back
met the wall. The grip tightened.
Qulnby's face grew purple. He
squirmed and tried to cry out, but only
a hoarse gurgle sesulted.
Kazla came to herself. She sprang
to her feet and caught Mark's arm,
breaking his grip.
"Don't hurt him. He's not worth
Gently, without taking his eyes from
Quinby, Mark freed his arm from her
clasp. But he did not touch Quinby
again. The first murderous Impulse
died. He turned contemptuously away
Quinby, released from the cruel hand
and eyes, started across the room.
Mark whirled upon him once more.
Quinby stopped. "This," he said
weakly, "is a trap."
"Set by yourself." Mark turned to
Kazia with a helpless mirthless laugh
"What is my cue? Shall I kick him
down stairs—or spring his dirty trap?"
"Let him go," she answered list-
Mark shook his head. "Not without
paying. He Baid," grimly, "he
willing to pay."
"I'm not afraid of you," Quinby mut
tered a feeble defiance. "What can
you say of me that isn't true of you?'
"Ah!" Mark drew a sharp whistling
breath. Quinby shrang back, his hands
going protectively to his aching throat.
"Now you shall pay. You—" He broke
off with a gesture of disgust. "I find
I've no stomach for blackmail Just
now. I'll telephone Henley to come
over. He'll know how to handle this
Then Quinby was Indeed fear-struck
He clutched Mark'B arm tightly. "Don't
tell him!" he quavered. "We can set
tie this ourselves. I didn't really In
tend to force you out of the company,
only to—t0 frighten you a little."
Mark Jerked his arm free. "So you're
a coward as well as a fraud! Hut I
knew that before. This is too sick-
ening. You'd better go."
Quinby started again to go.
"You seem to be afraid of Henley
Yoa have reason. Tomorrow at ten
thirty you have an engagement to meet
him at his office—I have Just made it
for both of you. At eleven I will meet
him. You know best what Henley in
his present mood will do If he gets
wind of your iateBt adventure in phi-
lanthropy. Now go."
Quinby went. The next morning,
prompt on the hour, he kept his en-
gagement with Ilenley.
A weakness for epigrams has de-
feated more than one fair project.
After a discreet interval—long enough,
as he thought, for the interment of
the dead past—Jeremiah Quinby
sought to revive the paleontologlcai
He found that for once
the public memory was long and laid
more stress on the fateful twins of
production than on Ichthyosauri and
kindred monsters. The air was dark
ened with poisoned barbs of satire
*nd derision. There fell a great phi
lanthroplit, pierced to the heart. That
Is to eay, Quinby retired from the
realm of beneficence and his rival
reigned absolute once more.
A heavy troubled silence was In the
little room. Kazia stood passively by
the table, waiting for Mark to speak.
After a long while he raised his eyes
"Kazla, you poor romantic fool! Did
you think any amount of money was
worth that—even If he had kept hie
word? When I think what—oh, how
could you think of It!"
"I wanted," she answered In a queer
lifeless voice, as If benumbed by this
crisis into which they had stumbled,
"I wanted to do one thing for you—
and your happy city."
"My happy city! What happiness
could it have had, built on that? And
I—hadn't you given me enough?"
"I gave you only love."
"It was all I had to give. It wasn't
"I wish I could have given as much
as you." The wistful worde slipped
He stepped closer to her.
"Kazla, this has got to end."
"You must marry me tomorrow."
Life, and with It pain, flickered once
"You are trying to give something
now. But I'm glad you Bald that."
"I'm asking you to give something
more. You will?"
"Why do you ask it?"
"Because I've hurt you enough. I
did hurt you wher. I let you—led you
to sin, even though we kept it a secret
from the world. I want to make you
happy—you said yourself we've broken
a law. I want happiness—and 1 can't
have it, knowing that for all I've taken
from you I've given nothing."
She tried to smile; the Bight of it
cut to his heart. "Every reason but
the one. But I'm glad you wouldn't
lie to me now." The smile faded. "You
see. I can't."
"Kazia, dear," he pleaded, "we
started wrong—let's begin over again.
Let's give love a new birth."
His voice rang with a longing she
could not understand, but he could not
touch her. She shook her head spir-
"There can be no.new birth bo long
as there is memory. You could never
forget that I—that I am not clean."
"Do you think me bo small as to
hold my own fault against you? It 1b
my sin, too." He stepped closer, reach-
ing out his arms to take her. "Come,
dear, your poor little reasons aren't
She shrank away from his clasp,
trembling. Into the tired white face
came a look of fear and despair. She
glanced this way and that, as though
she sought an escape. Her handB went
to her face. Then she forced them
down and her eyes to his.
"I thought—I thought you under-
stood. . . . 1—I wasn't clean—before
we sinned. The doctor who helped
me, I—" She could say no more.
Suspicion had not prepared him for
this. He stared foolishly at her, show-
ing how he recoiled from the fact her
broken words had revealed. He did
not then think it strange that the
shame of a woman he did not love
should stab so deeply.
"Kazla, how could you—how could
After a while he forgot hlB own pain
a little in pity for the silent stricken
woman. Again his arms reached out
for her and would not be denied.
"It must make no difference." His
sternness was all for himself. "What
am I to blame you? You sold your
body to live. I gave my soul to feel
otherB squirming under my feet. You
hurt only yourself. I've hurt every
one 1 touched. I hurt you. If I hadn't
been a coward years ago when we
first loved, you would never have been
tempted. Your sin Is only a part of
mine. It is you who have most to
Slowly she raiBed her head to look
at him. "And you," came a broken
Incredulous whisper, "and you would
marry me—even now?"
"All the more now!"
For an Instant a faint pitiable hope,
defying knowledge, shone in her eyes
"Have I been mistaken? Only love
could Ignore—ah! don't He to me now
It wouldn't be kindness, is It Just pay
He fried to look away from her and
could not. Her eyes held hi's, seeking
through them to hunt out the last
truth hidden in his soul. With a rou/h
convulsive movement he drew her
head down on his shoulder.
"How can I know what It Is? It
must be love, since I need you and
want to make you happy. If It isn't
now, surely love will come when we
start right. Kazia, don't refuse me
this chance to make up to you a little
of the harm I've done you."
Her answer was a stifled sob. He
felt her body relax; her head rested
heavily on his shoulder.
She released herself. He did not
try to hold her. They faced each other
in a heavy throbbing silence.
His soul quivered with the cruelty
of It; it would have been Infinitely
caster for him if she had been the
unfaithful one. H1b words echoed
mockingly In his ears, torturing him
with tbelr hopeless futility.
"You will not?"
"You couldn't say It—and I don't

again. "When I think how It might

me from —that. . . . And now—I think

It was a red sunrlso, that Sabbath
morning, and the ruddy glow lingered
In the eastern sky long after the sun
had swung clear above the hills. A
slanting shaft found hlB window and
fell upon him as he dreamed. He
He awoke slowly, reluctantly, drift-
ing toward consciousness through a
golden haze that vibrated with far-
away dwindling harmonies.
"Where have I heard that before?"
After a little he remembered—a
youth, full of dreams and credulous,
Joyously facing his great adventure.
"And tomorrow I set out on a new
adventure. It was a long way from
there to here. ... I wonder, would
any man, given the choice, travel his
road a second time?"
Ho rose and went to the window.
Two years had passed, crowded with
effort, crowned with achievement.
From the window where he stood, still
seeking to recover the lost harmonies,
he could see the beginning of his
happy city, all ready for the great ex-

and descended to the kitchen. The
pleasant odor of frying ham met his
nostrils; there was a hotel in Bethel
now at which the Trultts generally
had thetr meals, but sometimes, of a
leisurely Sabbath morning, Simon still
served as cook.
But the bent old man at the south
window had forgotten breakfast. For
a little Mark watched him without

Breakfast ready, they sat down and

Ever Bince Mark had returned,
Simon had been vaguely Benslble of a
suffering to which some solacing word
might be said. But the word would not
come to his unschooled lips.
"I wlBh," Simon thought, "I could
give him something."
It was a real suffering Simon sensed,
no day without its hour of payment,
no hour so heavy us on that Sabbath
From across the town came a mel-
low clamor, the voice of the new
church bell calling the faithful.
The clamor ceased and after an In-
terval resumed for a few last tapB be-

for his hat and cane. When he emerged
again he found Simon sitting on the

"I guess I'd better."

Mark hesitated a moment "I sup-

can't. It takes a certain quality of

in Mark's tone which made Simon
look up quickly. "I can't see the logic
of letting another's suffering pay for

Doctor Hedges, driving along the
valley road, drew up at the station
until the eleven o'clock train, having
discharged Its Bethel passengers, sped
onward. The passengers were two, a
mau and a woman, strangers to the
doctor and therefore allen to Bethel.
The woman stood on the otherwise de-
serted platform, looking uncertainly
for the do<?tor.
"Do you," he demanded, "know
where Mark Truit lives?"
"Why, yea." The doctor bestowed
a friendly smile on the itranger. "1
guess I do."
"Can you show me how to And it?"
"Yes." Hedges glaneed toward the
woman; ahe waa entering the atatlon.

"If you will." And the stranger
promptly entered the buggy.
