EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY
By H.E. Smith
Light at Last
In the locket, beneath the abraded glass, was just discernibly a braid of brown hair. He handed it to Mary.
"Do you know that?"
The words were spoken huskily, and with an effort.
She caught the precious memento, and clasped it with both her hands to her bosom.
The man seemed to be growing weak. He sat down and removed his hat, and the wealth of nut-brown curls, with just a touch of silver here and there, fell over his temples and clustered upon his broad, frank and manly brow.
Mary saw, and her heart leaped. The long dark years were gone as by the touch of a magician's wand, and the old evening of that far-gone time lifted its blessed light upon her.
"Paul!"
That cry told to the man from over the sea all he would know. He stood again upon his feet, with his arms out-stretched, and in a moment more the faithfully-loved and the faithfully-loving one was clasped to his bosom.
"Yes, Mary—after all these years. O! thank God, it is light at last! No more trial, darling, no more sorrowing. We can forget the darkness and the agony in this blessed hour. O, once more—thank God, it is light at last!"
