"Mahala all time cry," said Winnenap', drawing furrows in his rugged, wrinkled cheeks. The origin of mountain streams is like the origin of tears, patent to the understanding but mysterious to the sense. They are always at it, but one so seldom catches them in the act. Here in the valley there is no cessation of waters even in the season when the niggard frost gives them scant leave to run.

Around the inn-yard stood a row of heavy, canvas-covered wains and lumbering two-wheeled carts, each surmounted by a well-armed guard, and drawn by six strong horses with harness stout as cannon-leathers. The hostlers stood at the horses' heads, chewing at wisps of barley-straw as though their other fare was scant, which, from their sleek rotundity, was difficult to believe.

According Katrine but a scant nod of recognition, he crossed to the door of the sleeping-room, and, after looking in, made a gesture, stealthy and cautious, for Katrine to enter. The room was dark save for a night light. Frank's face was turned toward her, his eyes closed.

Then with full canteen he turned back to succour and save the man who had befriended and saved him. So it came about that he found Howard in time. All of that long hot day they sought to rest, lying inert in what scant shade they could find, eating a few bits of dried beef, drinking their water now and then.

Warren was wondering whether she could possibly fit in naturally to the stiff, scant New England life which he had fled away from when a boy.

And the Blind Ones, Wing and Dunraven, came also, paying a last tearless tribute to the noble dead.

The maid stood looking at her a moment somewhat evilly, and then said: "Well, since it is but scant six o'clock, I may do that; but I bid thee ask me not overmuch; for meseemeth Dame Elinor is not overwell pleased with thee to-day, nor our chaplain either."

From the cool darkness of the bungalow came the regular click of her mother's loom. She could see the worker's head surrounded by a faint halo of broken twilight. Her mind filled in the details that were hidden by the green shadows the drawn, stooping figure, the scant black hair, the swollen gums, the syrah-stained teeth, and sunken neck.

"The papers came on the train with you, so we haven't had the verdict, yet."
