THE NOItTII PLATTE SEMI-WEEKLY TRIBUNE.

Swept along by u passionate excite
ment Hint seemed artually to consume
lier, Cherry lived tliruUKh tho next
three days. Mix noticed her jnood,
and naked her more than onco what
-caused It. Cherry would presH a hot
cheek to hers, smile with eyes full of
jialn, and flutter nway. She was well,
hc wnH quite nlJ right, only Hhe Hhe
was afraid Martin would HUtnmon her
oou and she didn't want to go to
Suspecting something gravely amiss,
Allx tried to win her confidence re
garding Martin. Hut briefly, quickly,
nnd with a wort of affectionate nnd
Apologetic Impatience, Cherry refused
to discuss him.
"I shall not go hack to hlinl" she
paid, breathing hard, und with the air
of. being more absorbed in what she
was doing than what she was saying.
"But do you mean that you are
really going to leavo him?" tho older
"I don't knjiw what In going to
lo,I" Cherry half sobbed.
"Hut, dearestdearest, you're only
twenty-four; don't you think you
might feel better about It ns time goes
on?" Allx urged. "Now that the
money Is all yours, Cherry, and you
can have this nice home to come to
now and then, Wn't It different?"
Cherry was looking at her steadily.
"You don't understand, His I" sbo
" understand that you don't love
Mnrtln," Allx said, perplexed. "Hut
nn't people who don't love each other
llvo together lti peace?" she added,
with i half smile.
"N-n-ot as man and wife I" Cherry
Allx sat back on her heels, In the un
graceful fashion of her girlhood, und
drugged her shoulders.
'Think of the people who are wor
rying themselves sick over bills, or
nick wives, or children to bring upl"
she suggested hopefully. "My Lord. If
you have enough money, and food,
nnd are young, and well I"
"Yes, but, Allx," Cherry nrgued
eagerly, "I'm not well when I'm tin
liappy. My heart Is llko lead all tho
time; I can't seem to breathe I Teo
ple Isn't It possible that people nro
different about that?" sbo asked
"I supposo they aro I" Allx conceded
thoughtfully. "Anyway, look at all
tho fusses In history," she added care
lessly, "of granda passions, and mur
dors, nnd "elopements, nnd tho fate of
tuitions resting on Just tho fact that
a mnn and woman tinted each other
too much, or loved each other too
much! There must be something In
It nil that I don't understand, nut
what I do understand," she added, af
ter a moment, when Cborry, choked
wltli emotion, was silent, "Is that Dad
would die of grief If bo know you wero
unhappy, thnt your life wub all broken
tip In disappointment nnd bitterness 1"
"But Is that my fault?" Cherry ex
claimed, with sudden tears.
Allx, after wutcblng her for n trou
bled minute, went to her nnd put her
nnn uhout bor. "Don't cry, Cherry I"
she plended sorrowfully. ,
Cherry, regaining solf-control, re
mimed her work silently, with an oc
casional, sudden sigh. She bad opened
tho subject with reluctunce; now she
rc-nlb-ed thnt tbey had again reached
a blank wall.
1'hrco days after their talk In tho
moonlit garden 1'eter found chunce
to sponk nlono to Cherry.
"Aro you ready?" ho asked.
"Quito I" she suld, raising blue eyes
"U'b tomorrow, then, Cherry I" he
'Tomorrow I" Ho saw tho color ebb
from her faco as tho echoed him. This
was already Into afternoon; perhaps
her thoughts raced ahead to tomorrow
Afternoon nt this tlmo when they two
would bo leaning on tho rail of the
Httlo steamer, gazing out over tho
ttinooth, boundless blue of tho 1'nclllc,
And nlono In the world.
'Tomorrow you will bo mine!" ho
'That's all I think of," she" an
tiwered. And now the color eamo up
In u splendid wave of flamo, nnd the
face that she turned toward his was
radiant with proud surrender.
Ho told her the number of tho- dock ;
they discussed trains.
"Wo sail at cloven," said leter, "but
J shall bo there shortly after ten. I'll
luivo tho bnggago on board, everything
ready; you only have to cross the
gnugplnnk. You have your baggage
check; glvo It to mo."
They were waiting In the car whllo
Allr marketed. Cherry opened her
purse and gave him tho punched card
'Til tell Allx that I lmvo a last
dentist appointment nt half-past ten,"
she said. "If sho goes In with me,
wo'll ,go to thu very door. But sho
ays sho can't come In tomorrow, any
wny. I'll write her tonight, and drop
the letter on tho way to tho boat. To
morrow, then I" was Cherry's only an
uwirr. "I'm glad It's so soon."
VOod.by!" said Cherry, leaning
4 vt r the side of tho car to kiss he
sister. Allx received tho kiss, smiled,
and stretched In the sun.
"Heavenly day to waste In the city I"
"I know!" Cherry said nervously.
Sho hail been so strangely nervous
and distracted In manner all morning
that Allx had more than once asked
her If there was anything wrong. Now
she questioned her again.
"You mustn't mind mo I" Cherry
said with a laugh. "I'm desperately
unhappy," she said, her eyes watering.
"I'd do nnytblng In the world to help
you. Cerise I" Allx said sympathet
ically. "I know you would. Slst I beJIeve,"
Cherry said, trembling, "thnt there's
nothing you wouldn't give mo!"
"That's easily said," Allx answered
carelessly, "tor I don't get fond of
things, as you do! My dear, I'd go oft
with Martin to Mexico In a minute.
1 mean It I I don't care a whoop
where I live, If only people are happy."
"How about Buck?" Cherry said, as
the dog leaped to bis place on the front
seat and licked hi? 'nlRtn'SH' ear.
Allx embraced him lovingly.
"Well If he wanted to go with
you !" sho conceded unwIUlngly. "But
he wouldn't!" she added quickly.
Cherry, going to the train, gnvo her
an April smile, nnd as sho took her
seat and the train drew on Its way, It
seemed to her suddenly thnt sho might
Indeed meet Peter, but It would only
be to tell him that what they had
planned was Impossible.
But on the deck of tho Sausallto
steamer, dreaming In the sunshine of
the soft, lazy autumn day, her heart
turned sick with longing onco more.
Allx was forgotten, everything was
forgotten except l'eter. His voice, his
tall figure, erect, yet moving with tho
llttJo limp sho knew so well, enmu to
her thoughts. She thought of herself
on tho other steamer, only nn hour

disappointments of the old life for

wandered; thoy might well' lose the
world, and tho world them, from today
"So thnt Is to bo my life one of
tho blamed and Ignored women?"
Cherry mused, leaning on the rail
and watching tho piuugo of tho re
ceding wnter. "Like tho heroines of
half the books only It always seemed
so bold and so frightful In books 1
But to me It Just seems the most tint
urnl thing In nil the world. I love
l'eter, und ho loves mo, and tho earth
Is big enough to hldu us, and that's
all there Is to It. Anyway, right or
wrong, I can't help It," sho finished
rejoicing to find herself suddenly
serene and confident.
It was twenty minutes past ten, n
warm, sweet morning, with great hur
rying hack nnd forth at tho ferry,
women climbing to tho open seats of
tho cable cars, pinning on their violets
or roses ns they cltiubed. Cherry sped
through It nil, beside herself now with
excitement and strain, only anxious to
liavo tho great hands of the clock drop
more speedily from mlnuto to mln
ute, and so round out tho terrible hour
that Joined the old llfo to tho new
She was hurrying blindly toward tho
dock of tho Los Angeles lino, absorbed
In her ono whirling thought, when
somebody touched tier arm, nnd n
voiced terrlfylngly unexpected and yet
familiar, addressed her, and a hand
was laid on her arm.
In utter confusion sbo looked up,
It was Mnrtln who stopped hor.
For a fow dreadful seconds a sort
of vertigo seized Cherry and sho w.ns
unable to collect her thoughts or to
spenk oven tho most casual words of
greeting. Sho had been so full of he
extraordinary errand that sho was bo
wlldered nnd sick at Its Interruption;
'ier heart thundered, hor throat was
iioked, ami her knees shook hencnth
'ier. Where was sho what was
known how much had she be
Gasping, trying to smile, she looKcd
up at him, while the ferry place
whirled about her and pulses drummed
In her enrs. She had automatically
glveti him her hand; now ho kissed
"Hollo, Cherry; where you going?"
for the third time.
"I came Into town to shop," she
"You what?" Sho had not really
been Intelligible, and she felt it, with
pang of fright. He must not suspect
the stenmor was there, only a short
block nwny; Peter might pass them;
n chnnce word might be fntnl ho must
"I'm shopping!" she snld distinctly,
with dry lips. And sho managed to
"Well," Mnrtln snld, "surprised to
"Oh, Martin" said her fluttered
voice. Kven In the utter panic of
heart and soul she knew that for
safety's sake she must find his vanity.
"I'm going to tell you something
that will surprise you," he said. "I'm
through with tho Itcd Creek people!"
"Martini" Cherry enunciated almost
volcelcssly. Sho looked from a flower
endor to a newsboy, looked nt the
cars, the people sho must not faint.
She must not faint.
'Well but where aro you going?
"I was going to tho dentist a min
ute, but It's not Important." They
had turned nnd wero wnlklng across
to tho ferry. Sho know that there was
no way In which she might cscnpe
him. "Whnt did you say?" she said.
"I asked you when the next boat
left for MUl Valley?"
"Wo can go find out." Cherry's
thoughts were spinning. She must
warn Peter somehow. It wus twenty
minutes of eleven by the ferry clock.
Twenty minutes of eleven. In twenty
minutes the boat would sail. Sho
thought desperately of the women's
waiting room upstairs; she might
plead tho necessity of telephoning
from it. But It bad but ono door, nnd
Mnrtln would wait at that door.
Suddenly she renllzed that her only
hope of wnrnlng Peter wns to send
messenger. But If Mnrtln should
chance to connect her neighborhood
with tho boat, when he met her, nnd
her sending of a message to Peter
I think there's a boat nt eleven
something," she snld, collectively.
"Suppose you go and find out?"
Sbo glanced toward tho entrance
of tho Sausallto waiting-room, a hun
dred yards nwny, and a mad hope
leaped In her heart. If ho turned his
back on her
"Whnt nro you going to do?" ho
asked, somewhat surprised.
"I ought to telephone Allx!" Her
despair lent her wit. If ho went to
the ticket ofllce, and sho Into u tele
phone booth, she might escnpc him
yet I Whllo ho dawdled here, minutes
wero flying, nnd Peter was watching
every car nnd every pnsser-by, torn
with the same agony that was tearing
her. "If you'll go find out tho exact
tlmo nnd get tickets," sho said, "I'll
"Tlckots?" ho echoed, with all Mar
tin's old, maddening slowness
"Haven't you got a return ticket?"
"I lmvo mileage!" she blundered.
"Oh, then I'll uso your mllcugot"
Mnrtln suld. "Telephone," ho added,
nodding toward a row of booths, "no
hurry; we've got piles of time I"
She remembered that he liked a
masculine assumption of easiness
whero nil trains, tickets, railroad con
ucctlons, and transit business of any
sort wero concerned. Ho liked to lol
tor elaborately whllo other people
wero running, liked to pull out his
big watch und assure her that tbey had
nil tho tlmo In tho world. Sho tried
to call a number, left tho booth, paid
a staring girl, and rejoined him.
"Busy I" sho reported.
"I was Just thinking," Martin said,
"that wo might stay lu town and go
to the Orphcum; how about It? Do
wo lmvo to huvo Peter and Allx?"
Cherry flushed, angered again, In
tho well-remembered way, under all
hor fright and stir. Her voice hud
Its old bored note.
"Well, Martin, I've been their guest
for two months 1"
"I'd Just as soon havo them I" Mar
tin conceded, indifferently.
But the diverted thought had helped
Cherry, Irritation had nerved her, und
tho reminder of Martin's old, trying
stupidities had lessened her fear of
"I've got to scud a telegram for
Allx," sho said.
"Wbut about?" ho asked, less curi
ous than Ill-bred.
"Goodby to somo people who are
suiting 1" Cherry answered, calmly.
"Only don't mention It to Allx, because
I promised It would go curlier 1" sho
"I saw tho ofllco back Here," ho told
her. Tbey went to It together, and
ho was within ftvo feet of her whllo
she scribbled' her noto.
"Martin mot mo. Nothing wrong.
We are returning to Mill Valley. C.
L." She glanced at her husband; he
wns standing In tho doorway of tho
little olllco, smoklug. Quickly sho ad
dressed the envelope. "Don't road
thnt name out loud," she suld, softly
but very slowly and distinctly, to the
girl nt the desk. She put a gold piece
down on the noto. "Keep the change,
and for God's sake get that to the
Harvard, sailing from Dock 07, before
olnvnn I" aliri until
The Hrl looked nn In snrnrlse: but

"Gconre. there's a dollar In that for
you If you deliver It before eleven to
the Harvard!" said . she. Tho boy
seized It, stuck It In his lint, nnd fled,
"And now for the boat I" Cherry
snld, rejoining Martin, nnd speaking
In almost her natural voice. They
went back to tho Sausallto ferry en-
trance again, nnd this time telephoned
Allx In renl earnest, and presently
found themselves on the upper deck of
tho boat, bound for the valley.
Until now, and In occasional rushes
of terror still, she hnfl been absorbed
in tho hideous necessity of deceiving,
of covering her own traces, of nntlcl-
pating and closing possible avenues
of betrayal. But now Cherry begun
to brenthe more easily, and to feel
rising about her, like a tide, the half-
forgotten consciousness of her rein-
tlonshlp with this mnn In the boldly-
checked suit who was sitting beside
her. She had thought to escape the
necessity or telling him thnt she was
not willing to return to him; she hud
been wrapped lu dreams so groat and
so wonuerrui tnnt tno tnougnt or nis
anger nnu resentment nnu neen as now-
tng to her. But she hud that to face
She hnd It to face Immediately, too.
sue Knew that every hour of post-
ponement wouiu cost ner iresn Humili
ations and difficulties, and as the boat
slipped smoothly past the Island that
roughly marked tho halfway point,
she guthercd all her forces for the
trial. The one distinct Impression sbo

"Well, how's the valley? Bore you

"Oh, no, Martin!" she quivered. "I

'Allx is a line girl-she's a nice
girl," Martin conceded. "But I can't
go Peter! He may be all right, all
that Inh-dl-dah and Omar Khayyam
and Browning stuff may be all right,
but I don't get ltl" And he yawned
contentedly In the sunshine,
After a few seconds he gave Cher
ry nn obllqije glance, expecting her
resentment, But she wns thinking too
deeply even to have heard him. Her
