Strort. Uwd b, on.. I". Kmli«m kr NEA XXVIII TffM was waiting for him. He laid down the hammer. He took her into his arms, or perhaps she took him into hers. But after tha he felt suddenly a new confidence Sometimes she did not agree with him. They had argued just the night before about Charlie, but in the end he knew that he woulc renew his confidence from her. They sat on the davenport, and he poured out the story. She spoke at last: "You shouldn't have done It You should have had the boys to back you. He might have shot you right there. You're strong at thinking and knowing things, not in meeting a man like that." Then it was she who began to take the next action. "Go get Ezra and George and the boys," she said. "No, I'll send one of the children. No one can move in on us like this, and say what he and we are going to do! George was Ihe first to come, and after him, Ezra. Ish caught the movement as Ezra's quick eyes shifted from George to Em and back again. "He has something, 1 I»h thought, "he wants to say to me alone." But Ezra made no attempt to gain the opportunity. Instead he ended by looking at Em in a linlf-embarrassed manner. "Molly's had to lock Evie up in one of the upstairs rooms," he said. Ish could toll what a hard matter it was for Ezra, a highly polite and civilized person, to have to speak in public thus about the burst of passion that had suddenly come upon a half-witted girl at a man's ciircsscs. ^ At the boys' coming, there was 3 little relaxing, and people be;;;ID to sit down and make themselves comfortable. In n moment, Ish knew they would all expect him to begin to say something and ho foil again that this was all happening loo rapidly. Whnl he was actually*facing was almost like the organization of a new state. And yet, they could not sit down quietly and start out by writing a constitution with a .good old-fashioned preamble. No, a particular and troublesome situation faced them, and they must act in the face of it. He put the question sharply. "What are we going to do about Evie and this Charlie?" There was a babble of talk, and almost immediately Ish had the chilly feeling that of all the men, only Ezra was solidly with him. TSH brought up the argument that they could not afford to let Evie start a line of half-witted children. But his words made less impression than he had thought they would. Evie had always been a part of the boys' life, and the thought that there would be others around of the same kind made little impression upon them Then curiously enough, George's slow mind brought forth an even sounder argument. "How do we know," he said, "that she really is half-witted anyway? Mayoe it was just all that trouble she had when she was a little girl when everybody died and left her ail alone to take care of herself. That would put anybody crazy. Maybe she's just as bright as any of us really, and her children will be all right." Though Ish could not imagine Evic's ever having normal children, still there might be something in the argument, and he saw '.hat it impressed the others, except Ezra. Ezra stood up. That wai unusual of him, too, being so formal. And it was also unusual that he seemed to be embarrassed. His lorid face was even redder than usual, and he glanced back and f o r I h, particularly at Em, it seemed, in an uncertain manner. "I've got to say something more," he said. "I talked with that fellow, Charlie, lait night after we went home, quite a while. He'd been drinking a lot, you know —talked pretty freely." And now Ezra glanced toward the boys, as if realizing that they, poor half- savages, would not know really what a civilized man was discussing. "He told me quite a bit about himself, which was what I was after." Again he paused, and Ish could not remember Ezra ever having been like this before. "Come on, Ezra," he said. "Tell us. This is just us." Suddenly the bonds of Ezra's reticence broke. "This guy, Charlie!" he burst out. "He's rotten inside as a 10-day fish. Diseases." Ish saw the news visibly shake George's big body as if it had been a jolting blow on the chest. He saw the flush spread over Em's creamy-colored face. To the boys the news was nothing, They did not know what Ezra was talking about • • • ZRA would not even try to explain to the boys until Em had left the room, and then he had difficulties because the whole conception of disease was hazy to the boys. As Ezra tried his explanation, Ish sat feeling his thoughts run by him fast. He knew vaguely that lepers had been restrained by law. Now there was no law. This was something that neither the old life nor the new held precedent. "Let the boys go," he said suddenly to Ezra. "This is for us to talk over and decide on." The r s, he realized suddenly, were disqualified in two ways—they did nol know the dangers of disease :o a community, and they did not <now the force which any society w;.- privileged lo exerl in ils own defense. The three older men turned to each other again after the younger ones had gone. "Let's get Em sack in," said Ezra. Em joined Lhcm, and then Ihcre were four. "Well, what about II?" said Ish, knowing lhat he must lake Ihe 'cad again. Once Ihe silence was broken, they discussed the situation fully.
