To intensify this feeling she liatl

I know we are Indebted to her for this.

girl, "and has no moro shamo than to
confess it! Betty, who was always his

of college and travel and society."
"Betty!" again repeated Marklnnd.
"Ah!" a sudden light springing to his
eyes "your old nurse, of course. Why,
certainly I remember her dear com
panion of my youth! But I did not rec
ognize her by so common a title. To
me sho lias always seemed a beneficent
genius, a good angel, rather than an
ordinary mortal." He lifted his glass
"To Betty," he said; "may her shadow
never grow less."
"Betty was asking mc about you the
other day," said tho girl; "she wanted
to know If you still rode and boated
and swam liko you used to. I told her
you had given up dancing because of
the exertion." She looked at him In

"Anything I do is Interesting to her,"
she responded, coldly.
"Do you know," he said, "I have been
marveling over you ever since I came.
1 cannot quite lealizo that you have
been ten days In tho country without
being bored. How have you accom
plished it? 1 thought that tho day of
miracles was past."
"My good Tony," remarked Miss
Gresham. patronizingly, "you must not
Judge other people by yourself; It Is a
very foolish and narrow-minded way
of doing. Because you cannot exist
happily without your clubs and theaters
is no reason why I can't."
"I never know you belonged to a
club," observed Markland, mildly.
"Have you developed into that won
der, a new woman?"
"Oh, nonsense! You know I was
speaking figuratively! I mean that I
am not wedded to any particular state
of things that I can adapt myself to
circumstances nnd enjoy whatever

"Yes," ho responded "so we did."

"And the house?'
"how doos It look?"
"Awfully everything gono to pieces;
dust, cobwebs nnd mold everywhere;
tho family portraits white with mll

You really ought to do something about
"I shall," he said. "I was fond of tho
placo as a lad, nnd the trip down hero
has awakened all tho old fooling. I nm
tired to death of society, tho exertion
of dancing" smiling "and the bother
of being agreeable to people that ono
doesn't caro a rap about; so I havo half

"If I can persuade tho girl I lovo to
consent to bury herself for my sake."
Miss Gresham looked down; her faco
hnd lost a little of Its bright color, but
tho pallor was In no way unbecoming.
"I thought tho best thing to do wns
to come and talk over the matter with
you," ho said, after a somewhat nwk
ward pause; "you always help a fellow
so with your advice."
"I imagine," she, replied, "that it a
woman cored for a man sho would go
with him anywhere."
"Exactly, but that Is tho question
does she care for mc? You, see" gaz
ing at her steadily "sho Is a society
girl, used to a good deal of gaiety and
movement and excitement, nnd It does
not seem iuito fair to ask her to como
down here, does It? It looks conceited
and selfish, as if ono thought a good
deal of oneself, don't you know!"
Sho looked at him gravely.
"Do 1 know her?" sho asked. "Is sho
some one you havo known a long tlmo?"
"Oh, yes, since I was quite a boy."
"Is she pretty?"
"Of course, you ought to know that."
"I supposo" slowly "sho never says
unkind things or sees through other
people as as some of your other
"Unkind things? No. But ns to see
ing through people" breaking Into n
laugh "I am obliged to admit that sho
does. You see, she has been out a lot,
and the rosy bondage Is a bit out of

"I supposo so" doubtfully "ono
cannot go through life with one's eyes
shut; that Is, If anyone has any brains,
and yet, somehow or other, I don't
quite like the description. You aro
such a good fellow, Tony, for all your
affection, that you ought to marry some
body very much above the average."
"And so I shall."
"You always said," she went on,
"that I might choose a wife for you.
Don't you remember Just beforo you
went to college that last ride wo took?"
"How we agreed to ask each other's
advice about the .people wo should mar
ry, and how we promised that neither
of us would get engaged without tho
"Of course I remember. I am quite
willing to abido by the old contract.
I shall never marry without your per
rnlssiox." "Oh, Tony, really?"
She gazed at him with parted lips and
"Ypu aro very trusting how do you
know that I shall not take a base ad
vantage Of your Implicit confldenco and
refuse my consent altogether? You
don't know how lonely it will bo going
out next winter without you. I havo
got so used to having you around that
I don't believe I'll enjoy myself In tho
least unless you aro there."
She pondered a moment.
"Come," she said. "I will compro
mise. I won't forbid the banns alto
gether, but you must not think of mar
rying until I am tired of society and
ready to take tho fatal step myself.
How will that suit you?"
"Perfectly, if you don't put it off too
"Oh, well, that I don't know. I havo
about decided to become a spinster."
"Come, now, that isn't fair. Supposo
we agreed to bo married tho same day?
That meets with your approval? Well,
to keep that promise fresh In your mem

hand "wear this for my sake."

and slipped a loop of diamonds on hor
The Sllood flashed to her cheeks.

of his action breaking over her, "Tony,
I don't understand. I "
"Ob, yes, you do," ho anr.wercd, draw
ing a reassuring arm about her, "but
for fear you might make a mistake and
go off aiitl marry another fellow, I will
