Saint's Progress

of having spoken like a charlatan. Had he really touched the heart of the matter? What good were his generalities to this young, fastidiously nurtured girl, brought up to tell the truth, by a father so old-fashioned and devoted, whom she loved? It was George's nature, too, to despise words; and the conditions of his life these last two years had given him a sort of horror of those who act by talking. He felt inclined to say: `Don't pay the slightest attention to me; it's all humbug; what will be will be, and there's an end of it.'
Then she said quietly: `Shall I tell Daddy or not?'
He wanted to say: `No,' but somehow couldn't. After all, the straightforward course was probably the best. For this would have to be a lifelong concealment. It was impossible to conceal a thing for ever; sooner or later he would find out. But the doctor rose up in him, and he said: `Don't go to meet trouble, Nollie; it'll be time enough in two months. Then tell him, or let me.'
She shook her head. `No; I will, if it is to be done.'
He put his hand on hers, within his arm, and gave it a squeeze.
`What shall I do till then?' she asked.
`Take a week's complete rest, and then go on where you are.'
Noel was silent a minute, then said: `Yes; I will.'
They spoke no more on the subject, and George exerted himself to talk about hospital experiences, and that phenomenon, the British soldier. But just before they reached home he said: `Look here, Nollie! If you're not ashamed of yourself, no one will be ashamed of you. If you put ashes on your own head, your fellow-beings will assist you; for of such is their charity.'
And, receiving another of those clear, brooding looks, he left her with the thought: `A lonely child!'
