"About this fancy-dress ball nt the
country club tonight." said Archibald
Welkins, as bis wife, looking very love
ly In a French-blue housodross, poured
the morning coffee, "I don't quite like
the Idea, do you, Eleanor?"
Her large blue eyes turned up to him
"What don't you like about It,
dear?" sho asked.
"Oh, this fool notion of husbands
and wives dressing separately not
knowing about each other's costumes."
Often In the eight yenrs of their mar
ried life he had been disturbed by her
trait of remaining silent when she dis
agreed with him, and now, as she did
not reply, ho stated more explicitly
what was In his mind, saying: "I think
we'd belter tell each other what we're
going to wear."
"We'll find out when w unmask,"
"Rut I think tho Idea of secrecy Is
all nonsense," ho insisted with a little
show of heat.
"Pass Mr.. Welkins the marmnlade,"
his wife said to the maid.
He helped himself, then repeated: "I
think It's all nonsense l"
Hut she did not answer. Flo had
never known a woman with Eleanor's
capacity for silence. It gave her n
"The steward at the club told me
they'd had over live hundred accept
ances," ho went on. "That means a
mixed crowd, and I'd like to know
what your costume Is going to be so I
can look after you."
"Thnt's sweet of you," she answered,
"but I'm sure I shnnt need looking
"You might," he declared.
"Oh, I don't think so not nt our
own country club."
"But I tell you It's going to bo n
mixed crowd. You're n dnrn pretty
woman and n blonde." And as again
sho was silent, ho added In a tone that
held n hint of nccusatlon: "Blondes
nlwnya attract more attention."
"Tako some hot toast," she said to
him as the maid appeared. lie took
some, and waited till she left the room.
Then he said :
"I wonder why men always think
good looking blondes are " But lie
did not finish the sentence.
"Are what?" she asked.
"Well, anyway," he declnred, "fancy
dress makes people reckless. They feel
that tho lid's off. There'll be a lot of
Ilasks, too. There's so much more
drinking since prohibition, Thnt's an
other reason why I want to know.
"What?" ho repeated Irritably. "Just
what I've been asking you what
you'ro going to wear."
"I don't think It would be playing
tho game to tell," she said. "How do
you like this bacon? It's a new brand."
"Look here," ho said sharply, "you
can't put mo off that way! You say
you don't need looking after, but your
memory doesn't seem to he so good as
mine I Before your lllrtntlon with that
dolled-up French officer you fell for,
X used to think you didn't need looking
rtfter, tool But I guess 1." He
llavlug thrown In her face the ono
Indiscretion of her married life, ho
Instantly regretted It. Ho always did.
lie always told himself that to keep
referring to It was to take n mean
dvantngo of her, nnd that he would
Mvtr speak of It again. Strange thut
ho onild not overcome tho Jealousy
left with him by that episode of sev
eral years ago, when, ever since, sho
had been so circumspect. After nil It
hail been only ti mild tllrlatloti, and the
l-'renchinnti wasn't very young. Ho
was a fool to keep thinking of It, and
a greater fool to harp upon It.
He said no more, but left the table,
angry with her and angry with him
In tho Interest of soroey It bad been
nrrunged that the wives should dine
and dress together lti certain houses In
the neighborhood, while the lui'baud.'t
dined and dieted In others, ami that
all .should nnio at the club mn-ked.
Archibald Welkins consequently left
the limousine to be used by his wife
and her friends and taking the bag
containing his costume, which was sup
posed to resemble King Charles II,
drove In his rwiiNfor to Tom Bayne's
house, where he t. .mil a group of men,
some of them already In their llnery,
some dressing, all with cocktail glasses
In their hands.
By the time he had donned the regal
wig nnd kneo breeches, and drank
three cocktails, he began to change his
mind about the fancy dress ball. It
was an amusing Idea, this secrecy, lie
was going to have a good time. Never
theless, when he asked Eleanor what
she was going to wear sho should have
told him. He still felt some resentment
Tom Bayne had an excellent cellar.
With dinner he served large highballs,
and his Scotch wa.s exceptionally
good. As Archibald Welkins was leav
ing with the others, lie caught his re
flection In a mirror and approved
thereof. The Jewelled star shone bril
liantly upon his breast ; the black silk
stockings admirably set off his leg,
which was a good leg, and the long,
dark, curly wig gave him, he thought, a
mysterious appearance. What did he
care, after all, about Eleanor's refusal
to tell him what her costume was to
be? Ho wasn't going to worry about
Eleanor tonight. Not he! lie had
offered to that was enough. Sho
didn't know what he was wearing,
either. Yes, he wns going to have a
With an Arab sheik, a Chinaman,
and a soldier in the buff and blue of
the Continental army as his passen
gers, he drove to the club, handling his
roadster dashingly, and to avoid being
recognized by his car, parked beside
the drive at some distance from tho
door, and walked with his companions
to the clubhouse.
The doors and the French windows
were open ; dancing had already start
ed; they could hear the music as they
walked across the grass. Inside tho
ballroom Welkins paused to review the
animated spectacle. Masked soldiers,
clowns, coolies, court beauties, bull
fighters, odalisques, woman Jockles,
gelslia, harlequins, cowboys, Spanlbh
senorltas, mandarins, pirates, nymphs,
Turks, vaqueros, peasants, whirled to
the music of the Jitza band.
Looking them over as they circled
pnst, he presently thought he recog
nized his wife. She was dressed If
Indeed It was Eleanor as a French
court lady, with patches, a high,
powdered wig and a pannlered gown of
flowered silk, and was dancing with u
Koman gladiator. He watched her
around the room. Her height, her tig
tire, her carriage were Eleanor's, and
the costume had a dignity characteris
tic of his wife's taste. When she had
passed several times he was quite cer
tain of her.
Presently he became Interested In
Cleopatra, who fox-trotted Into view
with Napoleon. Eleanor would have
made a handsome Cleopatra, too, but
ho felt sure she would never appear
In public In such scant attire.
That Cleopatra woman was certainly
attractive, though! lie cut In on her
and, as they danced, talked In a false
voice, endeavoring to gi'oss at her
identity. But tho fair Egyptian was
popular. An Indian Rajah soon
snatched her away, leaving Kin

Charles II free to seek out a fascinating
Columbine who, several times, had
passed near mm m a nance, mm
seemed responsive to Ids glances.
Presently, with a beau of the Colon
ial period, she came down the floor, a
sprightly figure In a short black satin
dress with a wnlst tut to a deep V In
back, springy little skirts, thin open
work stockings and ballet slippers.
With her huge white ruff and her black
cocked hat pulled down at a saucy
angle over bobbed red hair, she looked
the Incarnation of Irresponsible gaiety.
He cut In nnd found that her danc
ing confirmed his Impression. How
light, how responsive sho was I
"I've been aiming to catch you !" ho
told her, disguising his voice by pitch
ing It low.
"'Ave you, monsieur?" she chirped.
"Well, zen, wo are sympnthlquo, for I
too 'ave look at you, you beeg, 'and
some maul" The minx. She gave his
hand n squeeze which ho promptly
"Are you French?" ho nsked In his
assumed voice, "or are you putting
on that accent?"
"What you sink, monsieur?"
"I think," he said, "that If you're
putting It on you do It very well."
"An' you, you had, weeked king!
0v Is your Nell Gwyn?" she asked.
"Never mind Nell Gw'yn," he said.
"It's you I'm Interested In. Don't tell
mo you're Just a nice little married
woman In disguise wife of some man
who commutes to business In New
York and drives u ball uround theso
links on Sundays."
"You 'ope I'm real naughty French
girl?" she asked, archly.
"Indeed I do!"
"Well, zen, follow me! And with
that she disengaged herself and flitted
swiftly through n French window lead
ing to tho terrace.
Pursuing, he lost her momentarily,
for In the darkness her black dress
gave her an advantage, but as sho
scampered down the steps toward the
lawn and the links, he caught sight of
her white ruff, and sped after her. As
she disappeared behind a large syrlnga
hush he heard a rippling lauuli, and
running to the oilier side, caught her
In his atiii. Then, as she whs panting

flattered by the apparent willingness

but his appeal to her to stay outside
"No," she said, firmly, "you are a
naughty boy, an' I 'ave foiin' you out.
My 'uslmn' would not like."
"Your husband does not need to
know," he urged, "nor my wife, either.
That's what makes a party of this
kind such fun husbands and wives
not knowing each other's costumes,"
"Yes," said she, "hut I 'ave already
'ad fun enough, my king." And with
that slit moved Into the ballroom.
By the door they stood for a mo
ment watching the dancers.
"Look!" he exclaimed suddenly.
"There's another Columbine. Site's

"Yes, we came togezzer."
"But suppose I were to lose you,"
said he, "how could I And you again?

"Let's dance and talk it over."
"No, monsieur," replied the Colum
bine, "now 1 inns' dance wlz some wan

came up." and In a moment she was
dancing off with him.
"Meet me here afterwards" urged
King Charles an she moved away.
But she shook her head.
"How shall I And you, then?" ho
"I don't sink you can!" snld sho.
and again he heard her tantalizing
Ho retired to tho doorway and
watched for her, but by the time she
came around again sho was with a
Sicilian brigand, lie cut In. But ap
parently this was the other Columbine,
for she did not seem to know him. Her
step was not so light as that of the
one he Bought, nor did she speak with
a French accent.
Never mind! He would find his lost
Columbine. He was determined to And
her. And when they unmasked he
would learn who she was.
Time and again, when he saw n
Columbine wearing a black cocked hat
over bobbed hair, lie cut In nnd danced
with her, but only to be disappointed.
Always It was the wrong one. He ques
tioned her about the other, but could
get no sntls'aetlon.
When, nt midnight, the dancers un
masked, he hastened about the ball
room and the adjacent apartments
looking for the Columbines, but now
ho could find neither of them. Nor
could be find his wife, nor yet the
whlte-wlgged lady of the French court
whom he had Identified with her.
Where could Eleanor he? She ought
to be In the ballroom. That was where

and fancy dress made people reckless,
anyway. Temporarily he forgot the
Columbine In his concern about bis
wife's behavior, as he looked for her
upon the terrace nnd the lawn.
Falling to find her he returned to
the club and telephoned home.
"Hello?" He was surprised to hear
Eleanor's voice upon the wire.
"I've been bunting for you all over
the place," he said. "What took you
home so eniiy?"
"Oh, I got enough of It."
"Didn't you have a good time?"
"I had an exceptionally good time,"
she assured him.
"But I don't understand why you
went home, then."
"Fnncy dress makes people do nil
sorts of things," she said, and before
ho could comment upon the cryptlcal
character of the remark, she asked:
"Ilavo you been enjoying yourself?"
"Ob, I've had worse times," said he.
And thinking to have one final look
for his lost Columbine, he added: "I
guess I'll hang around for a while If
you don't mind."
"No. I don't mind nt all. Oood night,
dear," and she hung up the receiver.
"Well, dear," said Archibald Wei
kins next morning as his wife, looking
very lovely In n shell-pink house gown,
poured the coffee, "It was a pretty good
party, wasn't It?" And as she nodded,
lie went on In an expansive tone:
"Made It rather amusing, after all
husbands and wives not knowing each
other's costumes don't you think so?"
"Yes, very amusing," she Fald.
"I was quite sure I recognized you,"
ho told her.
"Oh, were you?" Sho looked up
"Yes, In a French rutin n
with a high powdered wig.'
When she smiled and slumi; hit
head he was surprised.
"That wasn't ou honestly?"
"What was jour costume, then?'
"I went as a Columbine," she said;
nnd addressing the maid: "Pass Mr.
Welkins the .strawberry Jam."
In silence he helped himself, spread
Jam upon a piece of toast, ate It, and
drank his coffee. Then:
"There were two Columbines dressed
eviuily alike," he ventured.
"Yes." said Eleanor. "This is thn
last of that new hncnu. Have you
made up your mind yet how you like
"Oh, ll's very good," he answered ab
stractedly. "Both tho Columbines I
saw had red hair."
"Wigs." she returned, succinctly.
"Wigs?" he repeated, surprised.
"They didn't look like wigs."
"Men aren't ery quick at detecting
such tilings," said she. Then, to his In
Unite surprise she added. "Do you re
member that nice French olllccr 1 liked
so much three years ago?'
"Well, lie wore a toupee."
"lie dlil? How do you know?"
"I no. iced It the llrst time I saw
Tin," he said, and sat reflective for
n time, then: "Look here, dear," ho
went on. "Let's never speak of that
French olllccr again. It was long ago,
and anyway It really didn't amount to
If he expected recognition of tills'
mngnnnlmlty he was disappointed for
she did not speak.
"Who was the other Columbine?" ho
asked In a casual tone as he was about
to rise from table.
"Evidently someone who went to the
name cost timer I did." his wife replied.
"But." He checked himself; then
with some feeling, added: "I don't
think they ought to send out duplicate
costumes for the same party, do you?"
But she failed to reply.
Often In the eight years of their
married life he had been disturbed by
