CHAPTER XI 'T'HEY journeyed on for some time—now through such crowded places that he oflen looked over his shoulder, thinking he had lost his guide, bul generally finding him wilhln his shadow on his other .side; now by ways so quiet lhal he could have counted his short, quick, naked footsteps coming on behind —until they arrived at a ruinous jcollection of houses, and the boy 'touched him and stopped. i "In there!" he .said, pointing out lone house where there were scattered lights In the windows, and 'a dim lantern In the doorway, with "Lodgings for Travelers" painted on it, Redlaw looked nbout him; from Ihe houses, to the waste piece of ground on which the houses stood, bordered by a sluggish ditch; to the sloping line of arches, part of some neighboring viaduct or bridge, with- which it was surrounded, to the child, close to him, cowering nnd trembling with the cold, nnd limping on one little foot, while he coiled the other round his leg to warm it. "In Ihere!" said Ihe boy, poinling oul the nou.se ngaln. "I'll wail." Looking back on his way lo Ihe house door, Redlaw saw him trail himself upon the dust and crawl within the shelter of the smallest arco, as if he were a rat. He had no pily for Ihe Ihing, bul he was afraid of it; and when It looked out of its den at him, he hurried to the house as a retreat. "Sorrow, wrong, and trouble," said the Chemist, with a painful effort al some more dislinct remembrance, "at least haunt this place darkly. He can do no harm, who brings forgetfulness of such things here!" . With these words, he pushed Ihe ielding door, and went in. 'T'HERE wos a woman silling on x the stairs, either nsleep or for- head was bent down Gardenia Club Meets At Arch Moore Home With Mrs. Arch Moore and Mrs. C. V. Nunn hostesses, members of the Gardenia Garden club met at the home of the former Wednesday afternoon. The home was atlractively decorated in the seasonal motif. Roll call response was made by naming a flower from -the Bible. A brief business period was held. Using the hteme "Variety in Christmas Decorations," Mrs. S. D. Cook nnd Mrs, Clyde Hendrickson illustrated the decorating of a mantle and a table. During the social hour the hostesses served a delightful salad course to 13 members attending Gifts were also exchanged at thib time.

As it was npl easy lo pass without ..treading on her, and as she was perfectly regardless of his near approach, he stopped, and touched her on the shoulder. Looking up, she showed ilm quite a young face, but one whose bloom and promise were all swept away, as if the haggard winter should unnaturally kill the spring. "What are you?" said Redlaw, pausing, with his hand upon the broken stair-rail. "What do you think I am?" she answered, showing her lace again. "I am come here to give relief, if I can," he said. "Are you thinking of any wrong?" She frowned at him, and then laughed; and then her laugh prolonged itself into a shivering sigh, as she dropped her head again, and hid her fingers in her hair. "Are you thinking of a wrong?" he asked, once more. "I am thinking of my life," she said, with a momentary look al him. "What are your parents?" he demanded. "I had a good home once. My father was a gardener, far away in the country." "Is he dead?" "He's dead to me. All such things are dead to me. You a gentleman and not know thai!" She raised her eyes again, and laughed al him. "Girl!" said Redlaw slernly, "before this death, of all such things was brought about, was there no wrong done to you? In spite of al that you can do, does no remembrance of wrong cleave to you' Are there not times upon time when it is misery to you?" So little of what was womanl; was left in her appearance, tha oW, when she burst into tears, he tood amazed. But he was more mazed, and much disquieted, la lote lhat, in her awakened lecol- (2cflon ,of this wrong, the first tiace f her old humanily nnd frozen endelrness appeared to show itself. * * * [-TE drew a lltlle off, and In do- Ing so obsei ved that her arms vere_ black, her face cut, and her joso'm "bruised. <,"What brutal hand has hurl you 6?" he asked. f "My own. I did it myself!" she mswered quickly. ¥ "It Is* Impossible." I'll swear I did! He didn't touch fie. I did it to myself in a passion, ind threw myself down here. Ha Arasn't near me. He never laid a land upon me!" In :,the white determination of ^confronting him with this untruth, he saw enough of the last perversion and distorlion of good surviving in lhal miserable breast lo be stricken with remorse that e had ever come near her. "Sorrow, wrong, and trouble!" ie muttered, turning his fearful aze away. "All lhal connecls her with the stale from which she has fallen, has those roots! In the name of God, let me go by!" Afraid to look al her again, afraid lo touch her, afraid to think jf having sundered the last thread by which she held upon the mercy of Heaven, he gathered his cloak about him, and glided swiftly up the stairs. Opposite to him, on the landing, was a door, which stood partly open, and which, as he ascended, a man with a candle in his hand came forward from within to shut. But this man, on seeing him, drew back, with much emotion in his manner, and, as if by a sudden impulse, mentioned his name aloud. In the surprise of such a recognition there, he stopped, endeavoring, to. recollect the wan and startled face. He had no time to consider it for, to his greater amazement, old'Philip came .out of the room, and took him by the hand. "Mr. Redlaw," said the old man, "this is like you, this is like you, sir! You have heard of it, and have come after us to render any help you can. Ah, too late, too late!"

Rayburn said he thought Mr. Roosevelt would incorporate both in the Christmas Even broadcast and in the annual message whatever he cared to say of his journey and Ihe conferences he had With Churchill, Stalin, Chiang Kai- Shek and Turkey's Inonu. Mr. Roosevelt looked tanned and fit after his five weeks' absence and many of those who greeted him commented on how well he looked. But lo a veteran Negro attendant at the White House who doubles as presidential barber, Mr. Roosevelt remarked: "I need a hair cut. John."- *^r^-. . Hundreds of office-bound government workers knew of the president's return lo the capitol some minutes before the official announcement, when they saw the .executive's entourage sweep down historic Constitution Avenue and whirl into the White House drive. Flanked by some 30 blue-clad motorcycle policemen, the procession was made up of a dozen big automobiles. All cross-street traffic was halted on the route followed and necks were craned from buses and automobiles for a look although it was not possible to dis- tinquish who were in the closed cars. The chief executive came up to the south entrance of the White House shortly before 9:30 a. m. EWT. Mrs. Roosevelt and their officials were wailing to greet him \inder the .canopy leading into the diplomatic reception room and he joked with them a few minutes, and for the benefit of photographers shook hands with a tiny grandson, John Boetliger. The chief executive was wearing a gray, double-breasted sharkskin suit, a dark blue shirt with large check," a bright blue tie and tan slipover sweater under his coat. "I would have dressed up," he remarked, "if I had known about this reception." A few of the congressmen on hand had been tipped off yester day afternoon the president wa arriving this morning, but Rep Ramspeck (D-Ga) House Demo cratic whip, said the first h heard of the plan to stage a we] coming party was at a cjuarte *f ft -M •ffA of eight this morning.
