EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY
By H.E. Smith
Light at Last
Only that she had no heart to give him. And yet he pressed his suit. He would teach her to love him in time. And he left her weeping with the indecision that had grown from the one weak spot-duty to her brother. He told her that he would come again, for he thought he saw his way to hope.
"Mary, dear," whispered Percy, as she bent over his couch, and smoothed his pillow," why don't you accept the home he offers? Mr. Lettrell is a good man. O, my sister, not for my  sake—not for mine—but for your own!" "Hush, Percy! Not now—not now. O, my poor heart!"
And she went out to the little sitting room, and sat by the window where she had sat long, long years ago, while the man she must ever love, either living or dead, walked on his way to the great city to go forth upon the sea. The grand words Paul Winship had then spoken sounded again in her ears; she saw him again, as then, put the blue ribbon about his neck, and kiss the little locket, and then hide it away in his bosom close to his true heart. It was her gift—her hair in that locket—and if the lifeless form had sunk in the sea the precious memorial of her love had gone down therewith. Her hands were clasped, and her face lifted heavenward.
"No, no, no—John Lettrell—never! I will be true to him, as I know he would have been true to me!"
 She turned from the window, and saw by the clock in the corner that midnight was near. She was upon the point of arising when she heard a step upon the sidewalk—a step as of a heavy man, approaching the cot. Nearer and nearer, until it stopped at her gate. A pause, and then the gate was opened, and presently a rap upon the door. She had no thought of fear. A stranger, probably, who wished direction on his way. She took up the lamp, and went to the door, and she saw, by the flickering light, a middle-aged man, large and strong, dressed in the garb of the sea.
