CHAPTER VIII. Continued.
The otitcomo wns tlint Mrs. Hnrdy
Insisted upon Irene cmbnrklng nt oncu
upon a finishing course. Afterward
Ihey traveled together for n year in
Ktirope. Then home ugnln, Irene pur
sued Iter art, and her mother sur
rounded her with the social attractions
which Doctor Hardy's comfortable In
come nnd professional standing made
possible. Her purpose was obvious
nnd hut thinly disguised. She hoped
that her daughter would outlive her
youthful Infatuation and would at
length, In a more suitable match, give
her heart to one of the numerous ell
glblcs of her circle.
To promote this end Mrs. Hardy
spnred no pnlns. Young Carlton, son
of n hanker and one of the lending
men of his set, seemed a particularly
appropriate match. Mrs. Hardy
opened her home to him, nnd Carlton,
whatever his motives, was not slow to
grasp the situation. For years Irene
lind not spoken of Dave Elden, nnd the
mother had grown to hope that the
old attachment hud tiled down nnd
would presently be quite forgotten In
n new nnd more becoming passion.
The fact Is that Irene at that time
would have been quite incapable of
stating her relation toward Elden nnd
its influence upon her attitude to life.
She was by no mentis sure thot she
loved thnt sunburnt boy of romantic
memory; she was by no means sure
that she should ever marry him, let
his development in life be what It
would ; but she felt that her heart was
locked, -at least for the present, to nil
other suitors. She had given her
promise, nnd thnt settled the mntter.
Notwithstanding her Indifference the
girl found herself encouraging Carl
ton's advances, or nt least not meet
ing them with the rebuffs which
lind been her habit toward nil other
suitors, and Mrs. Hardy's hopes grew
ns the attachment apparently 'devel
oped. But they were soon to be shat
tered. Irene had gone with Carlton to the
theater; afterward to supper. It wns
long past midnight when she reached
home. She knocked at her mother's
door and Immediately entered. Her
hair was disheveled and her cheeks
were flushed, nnd she walked unstead
ily across the room.
"What's the matter, Irene? What's
the mntter, child? Are you sick?"
cried her mother, springing from her
"No, I'm not sick," snld the girl bru
tally. "I'm drunk I"
"Oh, don't sny thnt," said her mother
soothingly. "Proper people do not be
come drunk. You may hnve had too
much champagne nnd tomorrow you
will hnve a headache "
"Mother! I have had too much
champagne, but not ns much ns that
precious Carlton of yours had planned
for. I Just wanted to see how des
picable he was, and I floated down
stream with him as fur as I dared.
Hut just as the current got too swift
I struck for shore. Oh, we made a
scene, nil right, but nobody knew me
there, so the family name Is safe and
you can rest In pence. I called a tnxl,
and when he tried to follow me in I
slapped him and kicked him. Kicked
him, mother. Dreadfully undignified,
wasn't It? ... And that's what

Mrs. Hardy wns chattering with
mortification and excitement. Her
plans had miscarried. Irene hnd mls
behaved. Irene wns e. dlfllcult, head
strong child. It wns useless to argue
with her In her present mood. It wns
useless to argue with her in any mood.
No doubt Carlton had been impetuous.
(Nevertheless he stood high in his set
nnd his father was something of n
power in the financial world. As the
wife of such a man Irene might have
n career before her a career from
which at least some of the glory would
rellect upon the silvering bend of tho
mother of Mrs. Carlton.
"Clo to your room," she snld nt
length. ''You nro In no condition to
talk tonight. I must say It Is a shame
thnt you can't go out for an evening
without drinking too much and mak
ing n scene. . . . What will Mr.
Carlton think of you?"
"If he remembers all I told him
nbout himself he'll have enouch to
think of," the girl blazed buck. "You
know what I hnvo told you and still

In tho morning. While tho scene was
occurring in Mrs. Hnrdy's bedroom
her husband, clad in white, tolled in
the operating room to save tho llfo of
a fellow being. There was u slip of
tan instrument, but (ho surgeon tolled
aj hit could not ut that juncture
44 - r
pause; the life of the patient wbh at
stake. When the operation was fin
ished ho found his injury deeper than
lie supposed, and Irene, was summoned
from her heavy sleep that morning to
attend his bedside. Ho talked to her
us u philosopher; snld his life's work
wns done und he was Just as glad to
go In the harness; the estate should
yield something, and there was his life
Insurance a third would bo for her.
And when Mrs. Hardy was not at his
side he found opportunity to whisper,
"And If you really love that boy out
West marry him."
The sudden berenvement wrought a
reconciliation between Mrs. Hardy
nnd her daughter. Mrs. Hardy took
her loss very much to heart. While
Irene grieved for her father Mrs. Har
dy grieved for herself. It was awful
to be left alone like this. And when
the lawyers found that, Instead of a
hundred thousand dollars, tho estate
would yield u hare third of that sum,
shu spoke openly of her husband's im
providence. He had enjoyed a hand

Her health had suffered a severe
shock, for beneath her ostentation she
felt as deep u regard for her lute hus
band ns was possible in one who
measured everything In life by vari
ous social formulae. She consulted
a specialist who had enjoyed a close
professional acqunlntunceshlp with
Doctor Hardy. The specialist gave her
n enreful, meditative and solemn ex
amination. "Your condition Is serious," he told
her, "but not alarming. You must have

tally. "I'm Drunk."
conditions your health demands are
to bo found in ." Ho named tho
former cow town from which Irene's
fateful automobile Journey hnd hnd its
stnrt, nnd the young womnn, who wns
present with her mother, felt herself
go suddenly pale with the thought of
a great prospect.
"Oh, I could never live there !" Mrs.
Hardy protested. "It Is so crude. Cow
punchers, you know, und nil that sort
Tho specialist smiled. "You will
probably not find It so crude, although
I dnro say some of Its customs may
Jar on you," he remnrked, dryly. "And
It Is not n case of not being able to
live there. It Is u case of not belug
able to live here. .If you take my ad
vice you should die of old age, as far,
at least, as your present ailment Is
concerned. If you don't" and he
droppetl his voice to Just the correct
note of gravity, which pleased Mrs.
Hardy very much "if you don't, I
can't promise you n yenr."
Confronted with such an alternative,
the good lady had no option. Sho ac
cepted the situation with the resigna
tion which sho deemed to be correct
under such circumstances, but the
boundless prairies were to her so much
desolation and ugliness. Irene gath
ered that her mother did not approve
of prairies. They were something new
to her life, nnd it was greatly to be
suspected that they were Improper.
Very slowly It dawned upon Mrs.
Hardy that this respectable, thriving
city, with its well-dressed, properly
mannered people, Its public spirit, Its
aggressiveness, Its churches nnd thea
ters nnd schools, its Inw and order,
and Its afternoon teas, after all, was
the real West ; sincere, earnest ; crude,
perhaps bare, certulnly; tho scar of
Its recent buttle with the wilderness
still fresh upon Its person ; lacking tho
finish that only tlmo can glvo to n
landscape or a civilization; hut lack
ing nlso tho moldlness, the nmstlness,
tho Insufferable artificiality of older
communities. Even Mrs. Hardy,
steeped for sixty yeurs In n llfo of
precedent and rulo and caste, began
to catch the enthusiasm of n new land
whero precedent and rulo and caste
nro something of n handicap.

Robert J. C.Stetd
Irene. "Wo cannot afford to continue
living at a hotel, nnd wo must have
our own home. You must look up a
responsible denier whose advice wo
can trust In n mntter of this kind."
And wns it rcmnrkable that Irene
Hardy should think at once of tho firm
of Conwnrd & Elden? It wns not. She I
hud, Indeed, been thinking of n nicih
her of that firm ever since tho decision
to move to the West. Tho fact Is
Irene had not been ut nil sure thnt sho 1
wnnted to marry Dave Eldon. She
wanted very much to meet him again ;
she wns curious to know how the years
hnd fared with him, and her curiosity
wns not unmixed with a finer senti
ment; hut she was not nt nil sure that
she should marry him.
"What, Dave Elden, tho million
aire?" Bert Morrison had said. "Every
body knows him." And then the news
paper woman had gone on to tell what
a figure Dave wns In the business llfo
of the city. "One of our biggest young
men," Hcrt Morrison bad suid. "lie
served, n little; likes his own compuny
best; but absolutely white."
Thnt gnve n new turn to the situa
tion. Irene hnd nlwnys wanted Dave
to bo n success ; suddenly she doubted
whether sho had wanted him to be so
big a success. She had doubted wheth
er she should wish to marry Dave;
she had never allowed herself to doubt
that Dave would wish to marry her.
Secretly, she hnd expected to rather
dazzle him with her ten years' devel
opmentwith the culture and knowl
edge which study and travel and life
had added to the charm of her young
girlhood; nnd suddenly sho realized
that her luster would shine but dimly
in the greater glory of his own. . . .
It was easy to locate the office of
Conwnrd & Elden ; It stood on a prin
cipal corner of a prlnclpnl street.
Thence she led her mother, nnd found
herself trending on the mnrblo floors
of the richly appointed waiting room
in a secret excitement which sho could
with difficulty conceal. Sho was, in
deed, very uncertain nbout the next
development. . . . Her mother had
to be reckoned with.
A young man asked courteously
what could be done for them.
"Wo want to see tho head of the
firm," said Mrs. Hardy. "We want to
buy a house."
They were shown Into Conwnrd's
office. Conwnrd gave them the wel
come of a mnn who expects to make
money out of his visitors. He placed
n very comfortable chair for Mrs.
Hardy; ho adjusted the blinds to u
nicety; he discarded his cigarette and
beamed upon them with us grcnt a
show of cordlnllty ns his somewhat
beefy nppenrance would permit. Mrs.
Hardy outlined her life history with
considerable detail nnd ended with tho
confession tha't the West was not as
bad as she had feared and, nnywny, It
was a cuse of living hero or dying else
where, so she would have to make 'the
best of It. And hero they were. And
might they see a house?
Conwnrd appeared to bo reflecting.
As a matter of fact, he saw in this In
experienced buyer an opportunity to
reduce his holdings In anticipation of
the Impending crash. His difficulty
was that he had no key to the finan
cial resources of his visitors. The
only thing was to throw out a feeler.
"You are wanting a nice home, I
take it, that can be bought at a favor

Ho paused, and Mrs. Hnrdy supplied
the information for which he was
waiting. "About twenty-five thousand
dollars," she said.
"We can hardly Invest that much,"
Irene Interrupted, In a whisper. "We
must have something to live on."
"People hero live on tho profits of
their Investments, do they not, Mr.
Conwnrd?" Mrs Hardy Inquired.
"ph," certainly," Conwnrd agreed,
and he plunged into a mass of inci
dents to show how profitable Invest
ments had been to other clients of the
firm. Then his mood of deliberation
gave wny to one of briskness; he sum
moned a car, and in a few minutes his
clients were looking over tho property
which ho had recommended. Mrs.
Hnrdy was an amateurish buyer, her
tendency being alternately to excess
of caution on ono sldo nnd reckless
ness on tho other. Conwnrd's mnnner
