THE UNCONQUERED

Ukraine. Hans was kept busy. It was not till the second Sunday afternoon that he was able to get out to the farm. It was a cold grey day, with sleet that looked as though it might turn to snow falling in sudden windy flurries. The country was grim and cheerless.
" Youl" cried Madame Prier when he went in. "We thought you were dead."
" I couldn't come before. We're off any day now. We don't know when."
" The baby was born this morning. It's a boy."
Hans's heart gave a great leap in his breast. He flung his arms round the old woman and kissed her on both cheeks.
" A Sunday child, he ought to be lucky. Let's open the bottle of champagne. How's Annette?"
" She's as well as can be expected. She had a very easy time. She began to have pains last night and by five o'clock this morning it was all over."
Old Perier was smoking his pipe sitting as near the stove as he could get. He smiled quietly at the boy's enthusiasm.
" One's first child, it has an effect on one," he said.
" He has quite a lot of hair and it's as fair as yours; and blue eyes just like you said he'd have," said Madame Perler.
" I've never seen a lovelier baby. He'll be just like his papa."

" I don't know if she'll see you. I don't want to upset her on account of the milk."
" No, no, don't upset her on my account. If she doesn't want to see me it doesn't matter. But let me see the baby just for a minute."
" I'll see what I can do. I'll try to bring it down."
Madame Perier went out and they heard her heavy tread clumping up the stairs. But in a moment they heard her clatter ing down again. She burst into the kitchen.
" They're not there. She isn't in her room. The baby's gone."
Perier and Hans cried out and without thinking what they
