CHAPTER I

FATHER AND DAUGHTER

The old man lay back in his chair asleep. The morning sun beat against the drawn window shades, filling the room with a dim, almost cathedral light. An oil lamp, which had performed its duty faithfully through the night, now seemed to resent its neglect, and spluttered angrily. There was the usual sound of the busy city's street outside the window, for the morning was advancing, but here in the room it was very quiet. A quaint little Dutch clock ticked away regularly, and the tired man's soft breathing came and went, peacefully, for his sleep was untroubled, his heart was full of happiness.

Lola was the sleeper's daughter. Maria, their servant. Maria was strong and rugged; Lola delicate and blond. Maria's splendid young body had been developed by hard work, while her mind had been stunted by a miserable childhood of neglect and abuse. Lola, since her mother's death, had been her father's constant companion, and had seemed to catch from him something of his grave and scholarly outlook upon life, lightened, however, by the impulses of a naturally sweet and sunny disposition, and the brave happiness of youth.

"He hasn't been to bed at all!" exclaimed Maria, as Lola stooped and put her hand lightly on the sleeper's arm... Continue reading book >>
