SHIPS THAT PASS IN THE NIGHT. Bf BEATRICE HABBADEH, CHAPTER XVIII. A BETROTHAL. He had loved her BO patiently, and now he felt that ho must have his answer. It Was only fair to her and to himself, too, that ho should know exactly whore he stood 111 her affections. Sho had certainly given him little signs here and there, Which hud mntlo him bollevo that she was not indifferent to his admiration. Little signs were nil very well for a short time, . but meanwhile the season was coming to an end. Sho hml told him that she was going buck to her work at home, and then perhaps ho would loso her altogother. It would not be safe now for him to delay a single duy longer, So the little postman armed himself with courage. Warli's brain was muddled that day. He who prided himself upon knowing the names of all tho guests In Potershof made the most absurd mistakes about people and letters, too, and received in acknowledgment of his stupidity a series of scold- Ings which would have unnerved a stronger person than the little hunchback postman. In fact, he ceased to core how he gave out tho letters. All tho envelopes seemed to have the same name on them—Mario Truog. Every word which he tried to decipher turned to that. So finally he tried no more, leaving the destination of the Itfter to bo decided by tho Impulse of the moment. At last he arrived at that quarter of the Kurhaus where Mario held sway. He heard her singing In her pantry. Suddenly she was summoned doWn stairs by an Impatient bell ringer and on her return found Wnrli waiting In the passage. "What a goose you ore!" she cried, throwing a letter at him. "You have left the wrong letter at No. 83." Then some one else rang, and Marie hurried off again. She came bock with another letter In her hand and found Warli sitting In her pantry. "The wrong letter left at No. 54," she •aid, "and madame In a horrid temper In consequence. What a nuisance you are today, Warli! Can't you readf Hero, give the remaining letter* to me. I'll sort them." Warli took off his little round hat and wiped his forehead. "I can't read today, Marie," he said. "Something has gone wrong with me. Every name I look at turns to Mario Truog. I ought to have brought every one of the letters to you. But I knew they could not be all for you, though you have so many admirers, for they would not be likely to write at tho same tlmo to catch the same post." • "It would be very dull If they did," •aid Marie, who was polishing some yrator bottles with more diligence than was usual or even necessary. "But I am the one who loves yon, Ma- rleohon," tho little postman said. "I have always loved you ever since I can remember. I am not much to look at, Marlechen —the binding of the book Is not beautiful, but the book itself Is not a bad book." . Mario went on polishing th'e water bottles. Then she held them up to the light to admire their unwonted cleanness. "I don't plead for myself," continued Warli. "If you don't love me, that Is the end of the matter. But If you do love me, Mariechen, and will marry mo, you won't, be unhappy. Now I have said all.' 1 Mario put (igwn the water bottles and turned to Warli. "You have been a long time In telling me," she sold poutlngly. "Why didn't you tell me three months ago? It's too late now." "Oh, Marloohen," said tho little postman,) seizing her hand and covering it with kisses, "you love some one else—yon are already betrothed? And now It's too late, and you love some one else I" "I never said I loved some one else," Marie replied. "I only said it was too late. Why, it must bo nearly 8 o'clock, and my lamps are not yet ready. I haven't a moment to spare. Dear me, and there is no oil in tho can. No, not one little drop!" "The devil take the oil I" exclaimed Warli, snatching the can out of her hands. "What do I wont to know about tho oil la tho cunf I wont to know about tho love in ypur heart. Oh, Mariochon, don't keep mo waiting like this! Just toll mo If you love mo and make mo tho merriest soul in all Switzerland." "Must I tell tho truth," she said In a most melancholy tone of voloo. "Tho truth and nothing else? Well, Warli, if you must know * • * how I grieve to hurt you"—Warll's heart sank, tho tears came into his eyes—"but since It must be tho truth and nothing else;" continued tho torturer, "well, Frltos, • • • I love you!" A few minute* afterward tho Disagreeable Man, having failed to attract any notice by ringing, descended to Mario's pantry to fetch his lamp. Ho discovered Warll embracing his betrothed. "I am sorry to Intrude," ho said grimly, and ho retreated at once. Out dlnytly aft- i award ho cnmo book. "The matron has just come up stuira," be uid. - Awl ho hurried away. CHAPTER XIX.

LI- chlnsky ana his mother passed on to the Tyrol, where madame would no doubt have plenty of opportunities for qurifrrel- ing, or not finding them would certainly tnake them without any delay, by this means keeping herself In good spirits and her eon In bad health. Thoro were some, too, who had hurried off without paying their doctors, being, of course, those who had received the greatest attention and Who hod expressed tho greatest gratitude in their time of trouble, but who were of opinion that thankfulness could very well take tho place of francs—an opinion not entirely shared by tho doctors themselves. The Swedish professor hod betaken himself off, with his chessmen and his chessboard. Tho little Polish governess who clutched BO eagerly at her paltry winnings, caressing those centimes with the same fondness and fever that a greater gambler grasps his thousands of francs—she had left too. And Indeed most of Bernardino's acquaintances had gone their several ways after six months' constant intercourse and companionship, saying goodby with tho same indifference as though they wore saying good morning or good afternoon, This cold hcartedncss struck Bernardino more than once,'and she spoke of it to Robert Allltsen. It was the day before her own departure, and she had gone down with him to the restaurant and sat sipping her coffee and making her complaint. "Such indifference is astonishing, and it is sod too. I cannot understand it," she said. "That is because you are a goose," he replied,pouring out some more coffee for himself, and, as an afterthought, for tor too. You pretend to know something about tho human heart, and yet you do not seem to grasp the fact that most of us are very little Interested in other people. They for us and we for them can spare only a small fraction of time and attention. Wo may perhaps think to the contrary, believing that we occupy an Important position in their lives, until one day, when we oro feeling most confident of our value, we see an unmistakable sign, given quite, unconsciously by our Mends, that we are after all nothing to them. We can be done with out, put .on one side and. forgotten when not present. Then If we are foolish wo nre wounded by this discovery, and we draw back into ourselves. But If we are wise we draw back Into ourselves without bo- lng wounded, recognising as.fair and reasonable that people can only have time and attention for their Immediate belong Ings. Isolated persons bare to learn this lesson sooner or later, and the sooner they do loom it the better." "And you," she asked, "you have learned this lessonf" "Long ago," he said decidedly. "You take shard view of life," she said "Life has pot been very bright for mo," he answered. "But I own that I have not cultivated my garden, and now it is too late-^-the Weeds have sprung up everywhere. Once or twice I have thought lately that I would begin to clear away the weeds, but I have not the courage now And perhaps It does not matter much." "I think It does matter," she said gently. "But I am no bettor than you, for I have not cultivated my garden." "It would not be such a difficult business for you as for me," she sold, smiling sadly. They loft the restaurant and sauntered out together. "And tomorrow you will be gone, "ho said. "I shall miss you," Bernardino said. "That Is simply a question of time," he remarked. "I shall probably miss you at first. But we adjust ourselves easily to altered circumstances—mercifully. A fow days, a few weeks at most, and then that state of becoming accustomed called by pious folk resignation," "Then you think that the everyday companionship, the everyday exchange of thought and Ideas, counts for little 01 nothingf" she asked. "That Is about the color of it," bo answered in his old, gruff way. Sho thought of his words when sho was packing—the many pleasant hours wore to count for nothing. For nothing tho little bite of fun, tho little displays of temper and vexation, the snatches of serious talk, tho contradictions and all tho petty details of six mouths' close ooinpanlonabtp. Ho was not different from the others who hod ported from her so lightly. No wonder, then, that he oould sympathize with thorn. That lost night at Petorshof Bernardino hardened her heart against the Disagreeable Man. "I am glad I am able to do so," sho sold to herself. "It mokes It easier for mo to go." Then the vision of a forlorn figure rose before her. And tho little hard heart softened at once. In tho morning they breakfasted together as usual. There was scarcely any con' venation between thorn. He asked for bor address, and sho told him that the was go- Ing book to her unolo who kept tho second hand bookshop In Stono street. "I will send you a guidebook from the Tyrol," ho explained.

"It did not seem possible that such o tlmo could come. Many cruel things have happened to me as to scores of others, but this is the most cruel of all. Against my wish and against my knowledge you have crept Into my life as a necessity, and now t havt to give you up. You arc better, God bles* you, and you go back to a fuller life, ond to carry on your work, and to put to account those talents which no one realizes inoro than I do, and, as for myself, God help mo, I am left to wither away. '' You 1 ittlo one, you dear little ono, I never wished to love you. I had never loved any one, never drawn near to any one. I have lived lonely all my young life, for I am only a young man yet. I said to myself time after time: 'I will not love her. It will not do me any good, nor her any good.' And then In my state of health what right had I to think of marriage and making a homo for myself f Of course that was out of the question. And then I thought that because I was a doomed man, cut off from tho pleasures which make a lovely thing of llfo, It did not follow that I might not love you In my own quiet way, bugging my secret to myself until tho lovo became all the greater because it was my secret. I reasoned about It too. It could not harm you had I loved you. No one could bo tho worse for being loved. So llttlo by llttlo I yielded myself this luxury, and my heart, once so dried up, began to flower again. Yea, little one, you will smile when I tell you that my heart broke out Into flower. "When I think of It all now, I am not •orty that I let mysolf go. At least I have learned what I knew nothing of before. Now I understand what people -mean when they say that love adds a dignity to life which nqthlng else con give. That dignity Is mine now; nothing can take It from mo. It is my own. You are my very own. I love everything about you. From the beginning I recognized that you were clever and capable. Though I often made fun of what you said, that was simply a way I had, and when I saw you did not mind I continued In that way, hoping always to vox yon. Your good temper provoked mo, because I knew that you mode allowances for me being a Petershof Invalid. You would never have suffered a strong man to criticise you as I did; you would have flown at him, for you are a feverish little child, not a quiet, woolly lamb. "At first I was wild that you should make allowances for me. And then I gave in, as weak men are obliged. When you oamo, I saw that your troubles and ufferlngs would make you bitter. Do you mow who helped to cure you? It was I. have seen that often before. That is tho no little bit of good I have done iu the rorld—I have helped to cure cynicism. r ou wero shocked at the things 1 said, aid you were saved.

I wish that 'our capacity for feeling wore less, but hen you would not be yourself, your pros- ntself, I mean, for you havo changed oven since I have known you. Every week you eeiued to become more gentle. You bought me rough and gruff at parting, imrado, I ni£ant to bo sd. If you iad only known, there was a wholfl world of tenderness for yqu in my heart. I could not trust myself to bo tender to you—you would havo guessed my secret. And I ranted you to go away undisturbed.

And if you havo tho courage to bo slmplo when It conies to tho point you will succeed. Aud I bullovo you will have the courage; I bollevo everything of you. "But whatever you do or do not you will always bo tho sumo to mo—my own llttlo ono, iny very own. I have been waiting all uiy llfo for you, and I havo given you my heart entire.
