I KNOW HC LU ee A
Marriage of Barry Wicklow
By RUBY M. AYRES
(Conllnutd From Yesterday.)
It seemed a long time before Mrs.
Dudley came down. She was beau
tifully dressed; Barry noticed that at
once. She was wearing his favorite
color blue; he noticed that, too, and
wondered if she had chosen it on pur
pose to please him. He looked faint
ly embarrassed as he took her hand.
it s awtuily good ot you to say
you will come awfully good."
I wanted to come, she told him.
She was clever enough to keep all
emotion from her voice. She drew
her hand away. "I have missed you."
she said, lightly. 'Where have you
been hiding all this time?"
"All this timer He echoed her
words with a little laugh. "Why, it's
only a fortnight"
"So it is I It seems longer. She
let him help her into her coat. "And
how is your wife?" she asked him.
It was a question that was bound
to come, he knew, but he felt quite
unprepared for it. He flushed up to
his eyes. e
"Who told you I was married?
he asked, rathre shortly.
She hesitated. I am not sure: 1
have heard it from so many people,
but I believe your cousin Norman
told me in the first place."
He would," Barry said, grimly.
She looked up at him.
"Barry! Is anything the matter?"
Barrv winced. "I'd much rather
not talk about it, if you don't mind.
I made a hash of it, that's the truth.
You're bound to know sooner or
later, so I may as well tell you my
self. We she we agreed to differ
on our wedding day. Don't think
I blame her; it's been my fault alone
all along. She found out she didn't
care for me and and that's the end
She did not know what to say, but
her proud face quivered for a mo
"So we won't talk about it if you
don't mind," Barry said, more easily.
"We'll just have a good time and
forget everything else, shall we?"
"I m sorry. Barry." she said, gen
tly, though she kept her face averted.
" I on...".. "
Barry swallowed hard. "Oh, well!"
he said, with an effort. "It's my own
fault; I deserved it." He hunched his
shoulders. . "There's a taxi waiting,"
he said, with a change of voice; and
they went out together.
Asrnes Dudley was a clever woman.
She had heard all sorts of stories and
rumors about Barry Wicklow's mar
riage, but that it had ended so sud
denly and completely she had not
the faintest idea. She carefully
avoided all references to the past in
her conversation, and, as they drove
through London, she treated him in
the old friendly, affectionate way.
She really cared for him, and she
was more than happy to be with him,
no matter what were the circum
stances.' She felt a little thrill of apprehen
sion as they reached their destina
tion. There would be sure to be
many people in the restaurant who
knew them both. She wondered what
would be said of her and ot Barry,
but apparently Barry was uncon
cerned, and she took courage.
After all, if he did not care, she
need not. It was her fault he had
rushed off into his disastrous mar
riage; the least she 'ccruld do now
was to give him the trienasmp ne
Her color rose a little as they
walked down the crowded room. She
did not look to the right or left; she
gave a little sigh of relief when at
last they reached their table.
"Quite comfortable?" Barry asked
liir. "Not too near the band?"
"Oh, no it's very nice." She be
gan to draw off her long gloves. She
and Barry Wick'ow had dined here
scores of times together. She felt as

She met hit eyes and smiled, nerv
ously. "There are a lot of people I know
here, Barry," she said.
"Are there?" There was a note of
defiance in his voice. There was
only one person whom he hoped to
see. He glanced round the room,
and in that moment he saw her
sitting just a stone'se throw from
him, with Greaves and Hulbert on
either side of her. She was looking
at him, and there was a sort of ap
peal in her wild-rose lace: she was
very flushel, and her eyes were some
how distressed. Barry's heart gave
a big thump, (but he restrained him

speaking in an undertone.
Barry had chosen his seat so that
he could look at that other table
without turning his head. He began
to talk to Agnes; he hardly knew
what he said; he was speaking quite
at random; his eyes turned again
and again to Hazel.
Once he heard her laugh a shrill
nervous laugh that somehow hurt
him. Once he saw her lift her glass
in response to a toast from Hulbert.
It was champagne' they were ' all
drinking, of course, he told himself,
savagely. He wondered what Hazel's
mother would say it she could see
her now; what Joe Daniels would
They would blame him for this, of
course, ihey would say it was ail

that scared, reckless look in her eyes.

done his best, and she had refused to
allow him to help her. Once he met !

composure, and the knowledge
He hardly touched his dinner. Mrs.
Dudley was puzzled at the, sudden
change in him..'. He ' had .seemed
pleased and happy enough to be with
her at first; but now he was pale and
abstracted. Once or twice he seemed
not to hear when ahe'fepoke to him.
Presently she touched his arm.
"Laurie Hulbert is over there,"
she said. She had only just seen the
four at' the other table.
"Who is he with, Barry?"
Barry roused himself with an ef
"The tall man is Greaves, the
theatrical manager. He's worth a
pot "of money."
"You know him?
Oh, yes I"
"And and the two girls?"
Barry kept his eyes averted.
"The elder one is on the stage,"
he answered, evasively.
Mrs. Dudley looked across the
"The one with the fair hair is very
Drettv." she said, at last. "Don t you
think she is very pretty, Barry?"
He forced himselt to glance over
-"Yes," he said. "Oh, yes."
'I think she has a sweet face," Mrs.
Dudley went on; she was sufficiently
handsome herseit to be able to ad
mire good looks in otner women.
"Do vou know her, Barry? She is
looking at you now."
Barry forced himselt to answer.
"Yes I know her at least yes,
I know her," he said, incoherently.
He turned in his. chair. "Where's
that waiter?" he said, irritably. "The
attention is something shocking her
His nerves were at the snapping
point. He wondered it Agnes knew
who Hazel was and was deliberately
speaking about her.
Greaves had risen trom nis cnair;
he took Hazel's cloak from the
waiter. Barry could hear Delia's
shrill voice distinctly across the
room; she was laughing immoder
ately. Were they going? Barry almost
held his breath; he felt that nothing
in the world could prevent him from
getting up- and following Hazel if he
saw her leave in the company of
those men. The blood was hammer
ing in his temples.
A moment dragged by, then Hazel
came slowly down the room, fol
lowed by Greaves. He was walking
very close to her. Barry clenched
his hands under cover of the table.
They passed close to where he
sat. Greaves laid a hand on Barry's
shoulder in careless greeting. "Hullo,
Barry said "hullo."
He looked round for Delia; she
was not attempting to lollow; she
and Hulbert still sat . at . the table
talking and laughing together. Hazel
was going alone with Grevesl
They were at the door now; some
one opened it for them, and just as
they passed through it and out of
sight Barry saw Greaves'take Hazel'f
hand and draw it through his arm.
The next moment the door had
swung to, and they had cone.

leaned back in a corner of the taxi
with a deep sigh.
Tired?" she asked.
"No I've got a brute of a head."
He let down the window for the cool
air to fan his hot face.
Agnes spoke suddenly.
"Barry may I ask you a ques
tion?" He roused himself with a start.
"A thousand if you like!" he said,
with forced flippancy.
She hesitated; the light from a
street lamp they were passing gave
her a momentary glimpse of his face;
a hard, unhappy face it looked.
She laid her hand lightly on his

"I mean that" if she had her way

"And if you had your way?" she
asked. There was a touch of sup
pressed eagerness in her voice.
Barry did not answer. He knew
that it was impossible to tell this
woman that if he had his way he
would not be here now with her; that
he would be somewhere anywhere
with the woman he loved, and whom
he had married.
But sometimes silence is more
