The early part of his life was spent in Ashley, but most of his manhood has been spent away from home. He was gentle, lovable and kind, and in whatever sphere he moved the friendless had a friend, the oppressed an advocate It was his custom to greet everyone with a hearty handshake and a bright smile; as one has well expressed it "He was a natural born gentleman," a man of courtly bearing and courteous manner. His congenial disposition and pleasant personality was such as to win him many friends wherever he went. The same cheerfulness which he possessed in life, was manifest through out his illness, which lasted about two years; thus he remained thoughtful indeed, but unruffled to the last. He met death with air of dignified composure, and with an eye directed ' to the heavens. His last words were: 'It's all right, I am notafarid to die." Thus he departed this life on Oct. 30, 1918, at Wauwatosa, Wis., being survived by five sisters, namely: Mrs. S. G. Berry and Mrs. Harry T. Peeck, of Ashley; Mrs. D. C. Palmer, Du Quoin, 111.; Mrs. Edw. McKee, of St. Louis, and Mrs. W. A. Coffey, of Columbia, Ky , and two brothers, Edgar E Harrison, with the American army in France, and Lieut., W. A. Harrison, in training camp at Brookings, S. D., besides many friends. The remains we brought to Ashley, where the funeral was conducted from the home of Dr. and Mrs. S. G Berry on Saturday afternoon.

CHAPTER a young officer in the United Stated army, wounded at the battle of Santiago. While wandering alone In the Jungle he comes acroBs a dead man In a hut outside of which little girl Is playing. When he Is rescued, he takes the girl to the hospital and announces his intention of adoDt--In- g her. CHAPTER JT His commanding officer. Major Howard, tells him that, the dead man was Hampton, a traitor who sold war department secrets to an international gang in Washington, and was detected by himself and Kellerman while they were working In the same office with him. Howard pleads to be allowed to send the child home to his wife they agree that she shall never know and her father's shame. ' CHAPTER III Several years later Wallace visits Eleanor at a young ladles' boarding school. She declares that when she is eighteen she Intends to marry Wallace. CHAPTER IV Tears pass. Wallace Is stationed out West. On the outbreak oj the European war Colonel Howard secures him a staff post In Washington. CHAPTER V He finds Eleanor there, the center of attraction, also Kellerman, In whom he discerns an antagonist. CHAPTER VI For years a strange man has haunted Eleanor's footsteps, following, but never accosting her. One night Wallace sees the man and follows 'him to a gambling house kept by Mrs. Ken-soHere he is attacked by Kellerman. Wallace rescues him and takes him home, but in the night Hartley disappears. CHAPTER VII Next day Kellerman warns Wallace to leave Washington. He refuses. While working on Important mobilization plans Wallace is called out of the room. On his return he finds important documents missing. His resignation is requested. CHAPTER "Vm Mrs. Kenson sends for Wallace and asks him to become a spy for the international gang. He refuses and is clubbed in the dark as he is about to leave her house. CHAPTER IX He is rescued by Hartley, who hides him in the basement while police raid the house. Hartley tells him that it was planned to have him arrested in the gambling house In order to ruin his reputation. "So you were packing?" asked Hartley, looking about him. "What were I--Mark a -- "Hurry up to the surgical ward I" said the matron, as Mark reached her. '"And you, too, Hartley," she added. The two men scrambled up the stairs. At the opposite end of the building, an old converted chateau, the convoy had halted. Other orderlies wer.e carrying out the stretchers with their living, mangled burdens. A group of the newly arrived doctors and nurses was coming up the (stairs. They were all ready for their work. Mark no longer saw anything but the wounded men. Dripping with perspiration, he hurried from the ward to the pack store and back, innumerable times, struggling under great piles of towels and bedding. ' "Must have been a stiff fight," panted Hartley, as they passed each other, Mark responded with a movement of the head. It must have been a fight, to have brought all those serious cases down to the base hospital. "Weston, you're to go Into the operating room!" The nurse who addressed him spoke as to a servant. "Yes, Sister," he answered, and braced his shoulders and hurried to obey. ing. . "FU tell you," said Mark, raising his eyes. "I was accused "of treachery, of. betraying secrets to enemies of my j n. yon going to do?" "1 don't know," answered Mark "It's queer, being broken like this I've nothing, no prospects, only a little money. I have to earn a living." "It'll be the army," said Hartley. "You'd be a sergeant in no time; you'd run through the ranks in about a couple of years. And then you've won. Tou've conquered fortune. And, you're In a position to do a little quiet working to straighten out your tangle and run down the Kenson gang. And then ni help you, for when the time comes I can tell what I know. At present I can't. I'm waiting " He burst into an expletive, and his face was twisted with anguish. The man seemed under the stress of some overpowering emotion. "And how about your own part in this affair, Hartley?" The man winced as If Mark had struck him. Mark put out his hand, "Why, Captain Mark! Why why took Hartley's", and shook It warmly. "You're right, Hartley," he said did you do this?" asked Eleanor. "Hey, Weston !" called his fellow orquietly. Tm ready to sink my name, then, and well go in together as com- derly from the door of the sterilizing rades, and by Heaven we'll set the whole crooked business right I" I c, J . The patient, already etherized, had been brought in. Mark, watching the patient narrowly as the surgeon probed the wound, knew nothing but his task until the surgeon nudged, him familiarly In the side while one of the nurses was sponging his forehead. "I know your face, orderly?' he said. "Where was it?" Mark started ,and looked into the quizzical gray eyes of one of the army doctors from an Arizona town, .whom he had dined at the mess. "I think you are mistaken, sir," he answered quietly. The surgeon searched his face, and, like a decent man, admitted his error. "Another poor devil gone down," he thought, as he turned to his work. There were three more operations following, and Mark sighed with relief as the last man was carried away. He took a scrubbing brush and bar of soap and kneeled down to clean the floor, while his fellow attenflant scoured the splashed table and carried away the towels. Mark was conscious that the nurse still lingered, and he went on with his scrubbing. Somehow he did not want to meet her eyes. She came toward him and stood near him, by the table. Something splashed down to the floor then something else. Mark raised his head. They were tears, and others followed them down j.iic U- - nua uii. uuioiuj o.oid o luv-Eleanor. She put out her hands blindly. "Oh, Captain Mark!" she whispered. Mark felt himself beginning to shake; fate seemed to have played a wretched trick on him just then. country " Eleanor laughed In a little, mirthless voice. "You're still the same, Uncle MarkV' she whispered. "Did you think I would believe that?" It was not true," cried Mark, desperate. "But It was found that I frequented gambling houses "You are so fond of money, Uncle Mark!" "I wanted money. You were rich, and I wanted your "esteem. I wanted to move in your circles, to win your favor, as others could " She gasped and grew red; he saw that his arrow had gone home, and went on pitilessly. "When I was at your reception you had smiles for everyone." lThat's enough, Captain Wallace," she said, with an Indrawn breath. "You Insulted me the last time we met, you know, or probably have forgotten. I that I see wrong. all my thoughtsa of you were I was always burden. And when you didn't write so many years, and when you dldnt come to see me, I thought oh, Til tell you now, since you have humiliated me as deeply as it Is possible to humiliate a woman. I thought you stayed away and kept away because you liked me, and because you were afraid that I might come to care for you, and ruin my prospects among the rich young officers. I thought it was a sort of absurd, misplaced, quixotic chivalry, Captain Wallace." Wallace was choking. So she had known ! But he had won his miserable game, as he realized from her next words : "It was a foolish Idea, Captain Wallace, and now I've given it up, and I know that men aren't so Idealistic and chivalrous as I have imagined" them. But" she bent forward "I don't Relieve you are a traitor, Captain Mark I" And over her head Mark saw the tall figure of Kellerman in the doorway. The recognition was mutual and Instantaneous Kellerman's surprise was changing into a sneering challenge when Eleanor turned, saw the newcomer, and, with a superb effort of will, smiled at him. "So I see you got here, Sister Howard," said Kellerman, with a forced laugh. "Just in time," answered the girl. "Have you come to order us all up to the trenches?" "Some of you, but not the ladies. 'No, I'm attending the General on his tour of inspection of the lines." The talk grew Indistinct as they drifted away. Mark, staring after them in a stupor, saw Kellerman nod toward him, and fancied that the girl made a gesture of pleading. Neither had noticed him. He reflected savagely that already Eleanor was coming to take his status for granted, as the other sisters did. net-tled'a- nd CHAPTER X. "Weston! Hey, there!" Mark, who was sitting at the entrance of the tent which he shared with five other privates of the Medical corps, looked up at the sound of the name to which he had grown accustomed. At the sight of the corporal who had hailed him, he flung down the grooved strip of mei!, kno-xas the "soldier's friend," with the aid of which he had been polishing his buttons, and hurried obediently forward. "The train's in from the base with the sisters and doctors to meet the convoy that we're expecting from the front. Every man's on duty until the job's finished. Keport to the matron with Hartley." Mark nodded, and departed at a run toward the door of the base hospital, at which the matron, fidgeting impatiently, was awaiting the assembling of the orderlies. It was war, and the echoes of the far distant guns were Jill about them daily, though war had never passed that way. Under the name of Weston, Mark bad enlisted in the medical branch of the service. It was a lowly branch, despised by those who knew nothing of its activities. But the choice had been between that and nothing, for. the first fighting contingents to be sent overseas embraced only the regulars, not those of the draft Mark had enlisted rather than wait, especially since he knew that Colonel Howard, with Kellerman and his staff, were already la France.

"You heard my name?" asked Mark. "I heard it, Captain. Taark. Woa't yon tall-mwhat it means, what it all means?' 'Wfcat it all means?!' ha reseat " e Mark with a scream. She did not recognize him, Mark could see that The discipline of a lifetime held Mark steady. He stood confronting Kellerman, but did not raise a hand even to guard himself. Kellerman glared at him In speechless fury. And even then it seemed a little singular to Mark that Hartley disappeared, so swiftly and silently that neither the man nor the woman knew he had been there. Then Kellerman burst Into hysterical laughter. "It's the spy from the war department," he cried. "The fellow we pitched out of the army for treachery, masquerading here in uniform. A blank wall and a firing squad for you tomorrow, my man!" Ada Kenson sprang between them, "He doesn't mean that!" she cried, peering Into Mark's face dubiously. She recognized Mark now, but Mark could see that the recognition meant little to her; probably he had b.een only a trivial Incident In her career. "Lis ten to me I" she whispered in Mark's ear. "He has been drinking. It will be all right. Just go back and keep this tq yourself. You'll get a fifty' dollar bill by the next post, and ten every month afterward, so long as you don't see anything. Understand? He isn t responsible " Mark turned away in disgust, but he imagined the warped mind that caught at this hope of secrecy. He went back into the kitchen. The soldiers were still there, one or two hailed him ; the incident had occupied only ten minutes. Annette made a little mouth at him from the doorway. But Mark was searching In the room for Hartley. "Your friend went home, I think, monsieur le soldat," said Annette in "" banter. Mark strode out of the inn without a word. Hartley's disappearance did not disturb him. Hartley was strange; but he felt that he had relied too much on Hartley. It was for him to act He would go to the Major in charge of the hospital, tell his story, and do the only thing possible. He had no doubt any longer that Kellerman and the Kenson woman were partners In a conspiracy against his country, though he had never before allowed himself to accept the obvious deductions from CHAPTER XI. the Washington episode.

"Bonsolr, messieurs," she said smiling. "This way tonight, if you please."

But this was Kellerman ! Mark looked at Hartley and saw intense excitement on his face, which he. was trying most evidently to restrain.. He ordered beer of Annette, and followed her toward the outhouse in which the liquor was stored. The girl was a friend of his, perhaps because, more serious than the rest, he treated her with less badinage than was customary among the soldiers. As she moved out of the lighted room into the shadows outside the merriment fell like a mask from her face. . "What Is It, Annette?" asked Mark. "Ah, monsieur, it is tragic 1" said the girl, pausing at the outhouse door. "She Is one of my countrywomen. The accent is of the .south, or some outlandish part,, but she is French and she has come a long way to meet him, and he will not have anything to do with her. How did she get through the lines?" "Who, Annette?" "The lady with the American officer. Listen, monsieur! Listen, then!" They were standing in front of the outhouse, which was set near an angle building between of the the parlor and the kitchen. They could hear the imploring voice of the woman, and the subdued answers of Kellerman. Then, elusive against the dark angle of the building, Mark perceived Hartley. He was standing under the high sill of the window, In such a way that Mark thought he could see through the chink between the sill and the lower edge of the blind. Eavesdropping as he evidently was, Mark felt that something justified his presence there. Annette perceived him at the same moment. "She started, and then shruggecLher .shoulderl. "Eh blen, monsieur, it is their affair!" she said lightly, and went into the outhouse. She was too wise to interfere with her customers. Mark hardly noticed her departure. He was watching Hartley. Suddenly the door opened and the woman came down the steps that led Into the little vineyard behind the inn She raised her heavy veil to dab a handkerchief at her eyes, and at thai moment Mark recognized Mrs. Kenson He remained rooted to the ground in astonishment. But it was more than that; he felt suddenly trapped as if the woman's presence there was vitally connected "with his own problems, as if he were the victim of some scheme with which" h could not grapple. A minute later Kellerman appeared and stood upon the step above her, looking into her upturned face witl; his habitual sneer. "It is all over then?" asked Mrs Kenson. "Since you compel me to be frank yes,'f answered Kellerman. "It has been over for years, Ada..
