"Then, if you'll bring it at onco . . ."
said Rose. And tho saleswoman went
on tho errand.
Fivo minutes Inter, Galbralth, from
staring gloomily nt tho mournful heap
of troublo Mrs. Goldsmith had left on
his hands, looked up to confront . n
vision that mado him gasp.
"I wanted you to seo if you liked

ROso swiftly, "costs a hundred nnd

"Will you try this ono on, miss?"
nsked tho saleswoman, coming on tho

"No," said Roso, "Just hold It up."
Galbralth admitted it was beautiful,
but wasn't overwhelmed at all as ho
had been by tho other.
"It s not qulto co much your stylo,
Is, it? Not drivo enough?"
"It Isn't for me," Bald Roso. "It's
for Edna Luon to wear in that 'All

Galbralth stared at her a inomont.
Then, "Put on your Btreot things," ho
said brusquely, "I'll wait"
mado her look nround nt him. "That's
