Saint's Progress

streets at this most empty hour, when even the late taxis had ceased to run. Would she want him to marry her? Would it be his duty, if she did? And then he found himself thinking of the concert, and that girl's face, listening to the tales he was telling her. `Deuced queer world,' he thought, `the way things go! I wonder what she would think of us, if she knew-and that good padre! Phew!'
He made such very slow progress, for fear of giving way in his leg, and having to spend the night on a doorstep, that he had plenty of time for rumination; but since it brought him no confidence whatever, he began at last to feel: `Well, it might be a lot worse. Take the goods the gods send you, and don't fuss!' And suddenly he remembered with extreme vividness that night on the stoop at High Constantia, and thought with dismay: `I could have plunged in over head and ears then; and now-I can't! That's life all over l Poor Leila! Me miserum, too, perhaps -who knows!'

She was in love and was loved again; had a present and a future once more, not only her own full past; and she must finish with Edward in half an hour, for Jimmy was coming. She sat down on the divan, took his hand in a sisterly way, and said: `Tell me, Edward; I can see you're in trouble. What is it?'
`Noel. The boy she was fond of has been killed.'
She dropped his hand.
`Oh, no! Poor child! It's too cruel!' Tears started up in her eyes, and she touched them with a tiny handkerchief. `Poor, poor little Noel! Was she very fond of him?'
