EARLY HISTORY OF CLOUD COUNTY
By H.E. Smith
Light at Last
The months and the years rolled on, and it was known that the ship Fides had been long at the bottom of the sea, and not a word had been heard from any of her crew. That they had all been lost was beyond a doubt.
In time Mary's mother fell sick and died, and Mary was left alone with her crippled brother. She kept the little cottage, but it was not all her own. Thee was a mortgage upon it, and upon Mary the mortgage lay heavily. Percy, the cripple, could eat, but he could do no work. He was a constant care, and he repaid his sister in love when he could repay her in no other way. She found work at dress-making, and so she labored on, praying for strength  to perform her duty to the living and to the dead.
Years, years, years, with little of sunshine, with much of gloom, and with much, very much, of care and labor!
Years four-and-twenty since that night when Paul went away so resolute and so hopeful. And Mary Archer was now forty-four. The care and the labor had made their mark, but they had not detracted from her beauty. The freshness and the bloom were faded, but the ripeness of her true womanly nature, in faith and resignation, had come with a beauty that cannot fade—the beauty of goodness and Christian devotion.
It was growing dark without. Percy had been very sick, with need of more care and more medicine. The interest on the cottage was two years over-due, and the man of calculating business who held it had foreclosed and sued for possession. The cottage could not be much longer her home. Of herself she thought not at all; but what would become of her helpless brother?
In this strait John Lettrell came to her once more, and offered both herself and her brother a comfortable home for the rest of their days. What would she tell him?
