about the shop that Is In one way
you weren't fathor." lie glanced up
apprehensively. Sheridan stood facing
him expressionless and made no at-
tempt to Interrupt. "That's difficult to
explain" Bibbs continued lowering
his eyes again to follow the tracings
of his finger. "I I believe the shop
might have done for me this time If
I hadn't If something hadn't helped
me to oh not only to bear It but to
be happy In It Well I am happy In
It. I want to go on Just as I am. And

I don't want to be drawn into It. I
don't think It Is living and now I am

I can think. In business as Important
as yours I couldn't think anything but
business. I don't I don't think mak-
ing money Is worth while."
"Go on" said Sheridan curtly as
Dlbbs paused timidly.
"It hasn't seemed to get anywhere
that I can see" said nibbs. "You think

I don't think all this has meant really

a woman that not only made her
housekeeping her ambition but did it
so noisily and dirtily that the whole

"All right." said Dlbbs gently. "I

Sheridan raised his hands sardon-

he began to earn nine dollars a week

"Keep your hand In that allng! Yes

Dlbbs looked doubtful and more
wistful than ever; but after a moment
or two the matter seemed to clariry
Itself to him. "Why no" he said; "I
wanted something else more than that
I wanted you"
"And here I am!" she laughed com-
pletely understanding. "I think we're

"I don't know It seemed to me that

"Going to church" said Dlbbs. "It Is
going to church when I go with you!"
She went to the front door with him;
she alwuys went that far. They had
formed a little code of leave-taking
by habit neither of them ever speak-
ing of It; but It was always tbo same.
She always stood in tbo doorway until
he reached tho sidewalk and there ho
always turned and looked back and
she waved her hand to him. Then he
went on hair-way to tho new house
and looked back again and Mary was
not in the doorway but the door was
open and the light shone. It was as
if she meant to tell blm that she would
never shut him out; he could always
see that friendly light of the open
doorway as If It were open for him to
come back if be would. He could see
It until a wing of the new house came

"Look at 'a lamldal statuel"
Gazing down the hall Dlbbs saw
heroic wreckage seemingly Dyzantlno
painted colossal fragments ot n shat

gilded nnd silvered heaps of magnifi-
cence strewn among ruinous palms
like tho spoil of n barbarians' battle.

Mrs. Sheridan looking out Into tbu
hall beckoned to her son.
Dlbbs went as far as the doorway.
Gurney sat winding n strip of white
cotton his black bag open upon a
chair near by; and Sbcrldan was strid-
ing up and down bis hand so heavily
wrapped In fresh bandages that he
seemed to be wearing a small boxing-
glove. His eyes were bloodshot; his
forehead was heavily bedewed; one
side of his collar bad broken loose

cried as Dlbbs appeared. "There's the

winding nnd tossed it Into the open
bag. "What's the matter with giving
Dlbbs a chance to live?" he said cool-
ly. "I would if I were you. You'vo
had two that went into business."
Sheridan's mouth moved grotesquely
before he could speak. "Joe Gurney"

doctor. "Dut Just onco I'd llko to have

warming his hands behind his back
and smiling. "Look here old fellow

ly. "What 'fighting?' "
"Yours with nature." Gurney sus-
tained tho daunting gaze of his fierce
antagonist equably. "You don't seem
to understand that you've been strug-
gling against actual law."
"Natural law" said Gurncy. "What
do you think bout you with Edith?
Did Edith herself beat you? Didn't
she obey without question something
