Then she left me, and in a moment I
was in my great coat and on my way
to Jack's studio. 1 found him walk

in bis band, raving like a mailman,
kicking hi easel and bis paints all
over (lie lloor.
".lust listen to Ibis, will you," be
exclaimed, after I bad sntisliod liini
that I bad nothing to do with Nina's
going on the stage, and then bo road
ina tin) letter she had written to bini,
It was in elfect what she had told mo.
Their marriage wn. to bo postponed
unt il she had mado a success and they
could live In comfort. She was Hiiro,
alio said, thai Jack would son it in tho

quit e neciwsary lor him t o t oll mo that
bo didn't "see it in that ilglit, not by

"Well," said I, alter lie had calmed
down a little, "what are wo to do
"Jo?" bo cried, rising from hi
chair and drawing himself up in Hitch
a dignified manner that despite tlio
sit uation J almost laughed at tiltn,
"I will command lior as lior future
husband to uivo up I bis foolish idea:
this insaiio Idea, 1 will show her how
In going upon tho stage, she will ruin
not only her social standing but will
also insult mo,"
"And have you any Idea what effect
that will have upon hurl"'
"Tho desired euocl, to be sure,"
"It will not, It will inako her, II

"You wore sfagu striick at that ago.
I know I was, F.very man Is am)

"And now the only thing to tlo I
to lot her go ahead and take Hit
chances, Jf she makes a failure of It
li will give It up, you may be sure,"
"Hut suppose she makes a hit?"
"Then your life will lie ruined,"
The blow was cruel, For a moment
ho hung his head, I t .bought I saw the
lump in his throat. Then he looked
up, Thorn wa a roitolutloti in hi
"Hbe shall not suoeood," he said,
J knew then that lie had thought
out some scheme,
"Anything that I can do to help
"Yes; do n she asks you, Have

"Never you mind, Do a I ask of
you, please, find lea ve tho rest to me,
Kncourngn her, make her think that
she Is a great actressthat the world
i waiting for her debut, All will end
well, I am sure,"
The next Sunday the paiior were
filled with Nina, and soon they began
to put out the bill posters with full
length picture of her. I saw her but
seldom, and then she talked of noth
ing blither ambit inn, bow she was
(iet ting along, I saw Jack once, 11 n
seemed in excellent humor, and told
Mio that everything wa going on Just
as lie wanted It,
Finally I be night of tho debut eamo
around, The bone bad been sold at
auction mid great price bad been
realized. All the city wa talking
about Nina: t ho paper wore devoted
entirely to her, Jack sent me some
seals and asked me to ho on hand
early, I had an early dinner and was
ttt the theater half an hour before the
time for the curtain to go up.
The bouse began to flil up early and
by the time I bo overture began tbcro
was hardly an empty scut to bo seen,
I did not, see Jack, so determined ho
was behind the scone.
The cm tains went up, Nina came
out and did quite well, Her voice
wa far better than I bad expected,'
nnd she did not appear nervous, In
