Saint's Progress

cupboard, and bent down. Medicine! The medicine he wanted was not for the body; knowledge of what his duty was-that alone could heal him!
The loud popping of a cork roused him. `What are you doing, Nollie?'
Noel rose with a flushed face, holding in one hand a glass of champagne, in the other a biscuit.
`You're to take this; and I'm going to have some myself.'
`My dear,' said Pierson, bewildered; `it's not yours.'
`Drink it, Daddy! Don't you know that Leila would never forgive me if I let you go home looking like that. Besides, she told me I was to eat. Drink it. You can send her a nice present. Drink it!' And she stamped her foot.
Pierson took the glass, and sat there nibbling and sipping. It was nice, very! He had not quite realized how much he needed food and drink. Noel returned from the cupboard a second time; she too had a glass and a biscuit.
`There, you look better already. Now you're to go home at once, in a cab if you can get one; and tell Gratian to make you feed up, or you won't have a body at all; you can't do your duty if you haven't one, you know.'
Pierson smiled, and finished the champagne.
Noel took the glass from him. `You're my child to-night, and I'm going to send you to bed. Don't worry, Daddy; it'll all come right.' And, taking his arm, she went downstairs with him, and blew him a kiss from the doorway.
He walked away in a sort of dream. Daylight was not quite gone, but the moon was up, just past its full, and the searchlights had begun their nightly wanderings. It was a sky of ghosts and shadows, fitting to the thought which came to him. The finger of Providence was in all this, perhaps! Why should he not go out to France? At last; why not? Some better man, who understood men's hearts, who knew the world, would take his place; and he could go where death made all things simple, and he could not fail.
