Mrs. Stiles Lessly read a paper on "Religious Trends in American Civilization." Mrs. A. M. Hegre led the discussion. ospital. She had left him, and he led. The hours dragged by on leaden eel while she wailed. Once a Hying nurse brought her a sand- ·ich and a cup ol steaming coffee ·om the hospital kitchen. She hoked it down without tasting U, nd watched from the window as light fell and the moon rose lowly in the east, casting its mellow light weirdly over the ~ene. "It may be all night," the nurse old her. "And when he does re- over consciousness he may not uiow you." Not know her! That would be vorse, even, than this frenzied vailing. He must know her, her mind kept repeating as she walked -estlessly about the little waiting oom. He must know her! She had o see that crooked little smile pread over his lips against sight of her. HAD to hear him call her 'Girl." "Are you sure he's going to be all right?" she asked of the nurse again and again, and looked away rom the pitying glance that lashed in the back of the care- Eully impersonal eyes. 'We'll know when he--wakes up," was the only answer she rould get. It was nearing midnight and she sat for the past few hours with her .ired body slumped into one of the svicker rocking chairs, when the nurse beckoned her from the shaded corridor with a new insistence. "He's stirring," she whispered. "We want you there." The inert body on the narrow bed looked long and lean as she tiptoed inio the dimly-lighted room. His head was swathed in a turban of bandages, an ice bag topping all ludicrously. His eyes were fluttering, and he groaned as if in pain. · "Jim!" Lona called, softly. He opened his eyes wide, then, and the "Tiny" look in them cut her to the heart. "Oh, Jim!" she choked back a sob under the doctor's warning glance. For a long moment Jim stared at her. He seemed bewildered and she held her breath. Then, finally, when it seemed she could bear the silence no longer, the faintest of grins twisted his lips. "Girl--" he brought out, and she sobbed in relief. 'Where--am--I?" he asked, after another moment of bewilderment. Then, as if realization had struck him, he tried to raise himself suddenly upon his elbow in the narrow hospital bed. "How about Johnnie?" he asked, and Lona knew he was remembering the accident. "Did he --make it?" "You saved him, Jim! And you mustn't talk now. You'd better go to sleep. I'll stay here with you--" "What happened?" He tried to sit up and a different look came into his eyes. "Did I fall?" "You lost your balance, Jim. You've hurt your head. And you almost drowned. But you mustn't talk about it now, please. You're to go to sleep--." "The net! Where was the net?" he demanded, his voice raising, his hands clutching at her with an almost frantic clasp. "I didn't go through the net, did I?" "Hush, Jim! There was no net. You must be quiet." Lona's eyes sought the nurse's across the bed. The nurse nodded warningly, and formed the word "delirious" with her lips. "It should have held! The net should have held! They didn't make it right, I tell you! Somebody didn't want it to hold " "Jim, please!" Lona's voice was pleading. "You're talking wild " She broke off as the nurse deftly whipped out her hypodermic needle and bared a straining arm. "Just a minute, Mr. Bennett," she smoothed in her calm professional voice. The sound ot it seemed to bring him to himself. He smiled weakly as he relaxed again on his pillow. "Guess maybe I--do need some sleep," he admitted, his eyes normal again. "My head feels--funny." "Just be quiet, Jim," Lona begged him once more. "Shut your eyes. I'll hold your hand. You'll feel belter when you wake up." "Girl," he said, drowily, then. In another few minutes he was breathing heavily, his hand in her? relaxing as he sank into the healing stupcr of the drug-induced sleep.
