MISS CORNELIUS

Molly's face brightened.
`I believe she would come,' she said. `I know you don't like missionaries; but she is a medical missionary, and I think you would get on very well together. I'll write to her to-day.'
As he listened to her talking, as he heard the old note of eager gaiety echoing again in her voice, Saxon found himself asking if he could not have been mistaken in what he had seen. If only he could believe that his senses had deceived him! If only he could persuade himself that there was something wrong with his eyes! If Luttrell came, he would get him to test his sight.
Molly went round with a note to the doctor that afternoon. He came next day a little later than they had expected. Saxon was working over in the laboratory, and when he got back to the house, he found Luttrell talking with Molly in the drawingroom. As soon as tea was over-he remembered afterwards the rather forced vivacity of his wife's conversation-Andrew suggested that they should stroll over to his room in the science block, where they could talk and smoke undisturbed.
`I shall come for you in half an hour then,' said Molly, `because Dr. Luttrell has promised to advise me on the rock garden before he goes.'
Andrew got a great deal into those thirty minutes. Luttrell made a good listener, and only interrupted him now and then with a question. He examined his eyes too.
`And if you find my vision wholly defective, if you tell me that I can't trust my sense of sight, God knows, doctor, that you will have taken an unbearable weight off my mind.'
`As a matter of fact,' said Luttrell, when he had finished his examination, `your vision isn't exactly normal.'
`Then what do you make of the whole confounded business? You've heard the plain, unvarnished facts, and remember that I'm not imaginative or given to overstatement. I'm a trained scientific observer.'
Luttrell rubbed a long forefinger thoughtfully over his gaunt cheek.
`There are two things that arise out of what you have told
