Saint's Progress

And lifting down the canvas, he stood it against the wall and folded up the easel. `Bon soir, monsieur, you have been very good to me.' He wrung Pierson's hand; and his face for a moment seemed all eyes and spirit. `Adieu!'
`Good-bye,' Pierson murmured. `God bless you!'
`I don't know if I have great confidence in Him,' replied Lavendie, `but I shall ever remember that so good a man as you has wished it. To mademoiselle my distinguished salutations, if you please. If you will permit me, I will come back for my other things to-morrow.' And carrying easel and canvas he departed.
Pierson stayed in the old drawing-room, waiting for Gratian to come in, and thinking over the painter's words. Had his education and position really made it impossible for him to be brotherly? Was this the secret of the impotence which he sometimes felt; the reason why charity and love were not more alive in the hearts of his congregation? `God knows I've no consciousness of having felt myself superior,' he thought; `and yet I would be truly ashamed to tell people of my troubles and of my struggles. Can it be that Christ, if he were on earth, would count us Pharisee:, believing ourselves not as other men? But surely it is not as Christians but rather as gentlemen that we keep ourselves to ourselves. Officers, he called us. I fear--I fear it is true.' Ah, well ! There would not be many more days now. He would learn out there how to open the hearts of others, and his own. Suffering and death levelled all barriers, made all men brothers. He was still sitting there when Gratian came in; and taking her hand, he said: `Noel has gone down to George, and I want you to get transferred and go to them, Gracie. I'm giving up the parish and asking for a chaplaincy.'
`Giving up? After all this time? Is it because of Nollie?'
`No, I think not; I think the time has come. I feel my work here is barren.'
