himself whii.lx roused 1-er. It was not
simple jealousy. Tlie tirae for that had
passed years before. I'erhaps it was
the feeHii'4 that now she iuut insist on
lier conjugal rights, so lum: tlouted.
To his "ood iiiuht" she replied:
"Sol I want to know who she is."
Track's irritation now broke out
openly. His speech was rude as he an
swered: "What's the good of raslncr me like
this? I teM you I don't know who she
is. 1 suppose it is some business mat
ter." "Nobody would call you up at this
time of nibt on business. Ton know
very well it's not business.
"Well, what's your theory?
And Joan Trask. seeing that it ws
hopeless to pursue the former line of
ouestioriinjr. flared out at lilm with:

"Am . 1 r.evcr pnhijr to have a min

you're ready to fly at her throat."
A pain the wror.ped wife tjMike.
"Di'U t you think you give me cause,
the way you conduct yourself? You
seem to forget that you have a wife."
It was the obvious retort, the cheap
wit that replies, but does not answer,
which prompted him to say: "You ::ev
tr give me a chance to forget it. Kv
t ry time we're alone it's the same
"Then why don't you treat me as
His tone was querulous and rising as
"I don't seo what you're complaining

I allow you more money than you can
possibly spend, and your time is all
your own. Do you thitk there are
many women who can say the same?"
It was the old. old argument ad
dressed to the woman who is "bought
with a price." Almost since the time
of Adam men have believed that they

with dress, with jewels, with social

freely in the beginning. He had drag

taken it back and cleansed it and
nursed it in secret. It might yet be

Joan Trask recognized the futility of
her arguments and her appeals ro her

the mention of the "Miss i'e.n.c."
whose name seemed to s'ir her so
deeply, she seated htrsclf in an arm

Whoever Miss Deane Lad been or
was and no matter what emotion the
memory of Ler awakened and stirred
in the breast of Joan Trask it did not
seem to aCTeot Gerald Trask. save that
he now seemed possessed of a wish to
have the painful scene over with.
I'erhaps it was with a desire to reach
the end that he now said. "Nevermind
digging up ti e past."
"I will -dig up the past!' " said Mrs.
Trask. "I'll tell the whole story to the
world and let it see what manner of
man you are and have been."
Was it fear that now possessed the
heart of Gerald Trask, insensible to
other, higher motives? After all. de
spite his cynical disregard of his wife's
marital rights. sLe Lad aided him in
maintaining the place in tlie social
world to which he Lad been born. If.
goaded lieyond endurance, she laid bare

friendships which could stand the

thought, his mind ran over tiie list of
acquaintances. At the end of the list
came Strickland. Strickland!

force his wife over the precipice to
which their steps Lad been converging

to realize that, Ler resolution to divorce

ever it led. Not even the thought of
the children, so much dearer to her
than to him, would deter her. he knew.

is if II nonsense. There's no reason why
we can't go on together."
"No. I'm through with you," she sai 1.
"I've forgiven you a dozen times, and
it's been the same thing over again.".
