If I might FitiR

I stared at him in blank amazement.
\Yhut could he mean? Did he propose
to retain me as his private physician?
Was lie sufficiently wealthy to indulge
in such luxuries? His dress told noth-
ing on that score. lie might have
been a thrifty mechanic or a million-

"Yes, 1 remember,"* said 1, my
thoughts flashing back to the conver-
sation 011 the last night with Perez.
"My health is precarious," lie con-
tinued. "i wish to be not disturbed,
to be guarded from intrusion, as well
as to receive medical attention when
"In other words," 1 suggested, "you
wish me to accompany you to the spot
you have mentioned, to remain with
you, and to see to it that you have the
privacy you desire."
"It is as you have said."
"You ask a speedy decision?"
1 looked at him doubtfully, as well
I might after receiving such a proposal,
lie gauged my thoughts, no doubt, for
he pressed me on the point where re-
sistance would be weakest.
"You will be amply remunerated,"
said he. "May 1 ask the terms which
will be agreeable, and w* ich will suf-
fice to repay your loss in leaving the
icy self greatly as to the probable out-
come of our alliance. Then I went my
way to rous*' up the owner of a livery-
table near by and to bargain with him
for a vehicle. Although he bail never
profited by my patronage, he knew me
to Im a physician, and therefore sup-
posedly subject to laie calls from dis-
tant patients. I had decided to drive
to Merton, a tow n about 20 miles away,
011 the line of railway we would use in
our journey. The man exacted a stilt
price for the carriage, but there was
no haggling over it, for 1 got as much
pleasure as he from fr'ie exorbitant sum
he demanded; there was certainly more
of novelty for me in participating in
such a transaction.
When, at the time ap|K inted, Lamar
returned to the office, he carried a small
black satchel, which apparently con-
tained all the effects he cared to take
with him. The carriage was at tin
door, the driver grumbling to himself
at the long ride which lay before him.
Once in the vehicle, Lamar settled him-
self comfortably in his corner and
lighted a cigar. The satchel was 011
the seat beside him. I observed that
Ids hand never left it. Neither of us
spoke often in the course of the drive.
There were questions I burned to ask,
but it was altogether likely that they
would not l>e answered. As his em-
ploye, 1 felt eomjielled to respect his
moods, and his present one w as certain-
ly that of reticence. Although the
road was good, and the motion of the
vehicle eai v, I felt no drowsiness; uj.v
strange companion supplied me with
abundant food for reflection. Our
Jehu took his time, and the horses were
not ambitious, but before daylight our
destination had been reached. A
sleepy attendant led us to our rooms
in the Merton hotel, and a little later I
was slumbering as peacefuly as if T
had been stowed away in my dings
quarters in the city, with never a pros-
pect of an adventure more unusual
than an encounter with a dunning

The appearance of the room might
have told him liow little that loss would
be. More to test him than with any
well-defined idea as to the value of my
services, 1 said:
"Two thousand dollars a year, and
expenses, with an allowance for clos-
ing up my affairs here."
"It is agreed. Let us bind the bar-
gain." And w ith that he drew from
his pocket a roll of bills and held them
out to me.
"When shall the arrangement take
effect?" I asked.
"Now, from this moment. Shall it
[ hesitated, but. only for an instant.
The sight of the money overpowered
my doubts—it represented so much to
one whose fortunes were so desperate.
"Yes," said I. "from this moment."
And I took the roll of bills.
I had acted upon impulse, but it
may be that long deliberation would
have brought, about the same result.
1 knew nothing of the man, except
that he bore a token from my best
friend. I was ignorant even of his
raine, for from the first I understood
Lamar ft) be an alias. At his motives
I could hardly guess, but it was most
probable that he was a political exile.
At all events, association with him
could not change my condition for the
worse. There would be at least the
prospect of a dceent livelihood; and
very alluring that prospect was. In
short, it w as difficult to discover how I i
should be fin? loser. A moderately
successful practitioner would have
smiled at such an estimate as I had
placed upon my services, but the ex-
periences of the lasl year had not been
conducive of over-confidence. So, now
that I hud put myself under this
stranger's orders, I lost, no time in
asking him what the iirst of them
might be. He replied that he w as anx-
ious to leave the city at once.
"There is little to detain me," said I.
"I dare say 1 can be at your disposal
by ten o'clock to-morrow morning."
"Not so. We must depart to-night,"
he answered, decisively.
"What? To-night? There is 110 train
at this hour."
"I comprehend. But I prefer a car-
riage beyond the environs. One can
be obtained, can it not?"
"Then arrange for it at once. You
may return for a time, if there is need."
Here, wus haste with a vengeance
Lamar's knock awakened me, and 1
arose refreshed and ready to carry out
the scheme outlined the night before.
A clock 011 the mantel showed that
nearly half the day had slipped away.
Dressing quickly, i passed into my
companion's sitting-room, where a
> ubstantial breakfast was spread on the
center-table. It had been arranged
that we should shun the hotel dining-
room, and a statement that Lamar was
traveling under my professional care
could be relied upon to quiet any curi-
osily developed by out cxclusiveness.
Lamar was seated at. the table, with a
i half-finished clip of coffee before him.
i The light from the window fell upon
him, and for an instant 1 repented the
! bargain between us; lor his face was
i i ne of the most repulsive it had ever
j been my lot to behold. The sallow-
ness I had noticed was more pro-
nounced, and there were lines which
had escaped the scrutiny by lamplight.
The chin was long mil pointed, the
cheeks were thin, and the forehead,
though high enough to indicate 110 iack
of brain-power, was narrow and
wrinkled. There were hollows at the
temples such as one often sees in suf-
ferers from wasting diseases; with the
dark circles under his eyes, t he j* gave 1
him the look of a man whose healthwas ;
irretrievably shattered, though, as it j
proved, his physical condition was 110 j
matter of immediate concern. As lias |
been said, his nose was large au !
curved, and his hair and mustache were
streaked with gray. Ilis teeth, which
lie seldom showed, were large, discol-
ored and irregular. Ilis eyes, above
which the brows met in a bushy hedge,
w ere small and deeply sunk in his head.
There was hardly one of the man's fea-
tures w hich was pleasing, and com-
bined they made up a face almost
grotesque in its ancomellness; yet in
studying Mie expression of his counten-
ance one forgot his ugliness. It is tin-
business of the physician sometimes
to consider more than mere bodily ail-
ments, to heed the signs and tokens of
the forces of the animating spirit, to
seek out the passions which have held
sway and dominated the existence of
the patient. Deceived somewhat a'.
Iirst by his appearance of decrepitude.
I tried to solve the problem Lamar
presented from a professional stand-
point. There was power in his face,
power, will, determination; much self-
control, and more selfishness. Plain-
ly, thought 1, a man of bitter hates and
few affections, unscrupulous and re-
sourceful, now a fugitive, and bearing
in his eye the look of dread of his pur-
What brought him to such straits?
Over and over again I asked myself the
question. That political intrigues had
made liim an outlaw seemed to be the
most natural explanation, but it failed
to meet all the requirements of the
old haunts. Nothing, though, would
suit me better than to fall in with his
desire. So I said:
"If you will allow me tin nine
o'clock this evening, I promise to be
free in every way to accompany you
w herever you choose to go. My busi-
ness can be closed in short order. You
may rest satisfied that 1 shall say noth-
ing of the change of my plans. I11 fact,
I don't expect to excite any lively curi-
osity; it will be merely a case of an-
other man dropping out of sight ; the
city is too accustomed to such disap-
pearances to worry about another add-
ed to t he list. Believe me, I don't regret
Regret it, indeed! The salary offered
was ten times as large as my income
for the last year. It would mean at
least plenty to cat and plenty to wear,
a comfortable home and freedom from
the cares which had made life a bur-
den. The wolf of poverty that had
haunted my door would be driven 011
to how l about the dwelling of the next
poor devil. At an earlier stage of my
career I might have hesitated, have
paused before consenting to bury my-
self in the country; but it is a rarely
vigorous ambition that thrives on
grinding monotony and grows strong
through years of semi-starvation; mine
was not made of such sturdy stuff. Had

qualms, but scarcely well-defined re-
Three hours later I was again in the
j fity, and the few ties which had bound
j tue to it ware severed. The landlord
took my departure philosophically:
payment of the arrears of rent seemed
to reconcile him to losing the tenant.
A near-by practitioner gladly agreed
to give, room to my books until they
should be sent for, and a junkman drove
an easy bargain for my furniture. A
valise was capacious enough to receive
the few effects I eared to take away,
and even its contents might have been
parted with without great sorrow.
There were no patients to worry about,
and few questions to answer. To such

an appointment in the country; and
even my professional brother did not
think it worth while to push the in-

than about the vanished builder of

It would have been easy to return
to Merton long before the. appointed
time, but I tarried in town to enjoy a
luxury which had charmed my fancy
on many a day when the cravings of
hunger possessed me. There was a res-
taurant, famous far and near, a gas-
tronomic Mecca to which many pil-
grims journeyed joyously, under whose
roof 1 was determined to dine. Often
had 1 surveyed its glories from the
pavement without, prowling about the
place in fascination at the picture of
good cheer visible t hrough its windows.
