Up to this tlmo not a cloud had
marred their domestic sky. They were
happy , with the careless happIness at I

to them.
And so they plt : 'ed together untl1
the paIntings were 11nlshed. In order
to Insure separate onslderatlon they
were packed anp shipped In separate
boxes to the Paris Salon , where sIt
the world's arbIters In art.
In due time Mrs. Rhoda Holmes and
Mr. Durr NIchols recelvod their re.

For Mrs. Rboda. Holmes It was :
"PaInting accepted and gl\'en bonar ,

Here fell thp sbadow , It wo 1'11'0 to

Mrs. NIchols. Hero entered the note

the waYB wherob ) ' two souls became

With the wlte's jO ) ' was a feellng or
slncero sorrow for her busband. Ho

Althougb the shadow was In hIs
heart , the husband spol\O bravely at

said : "wo may both wIn next time. "
And so they went to worlt Cor II. sec.

as bofore. But now there stood a
ghost between them-the Impalpable
shadow oC jealous ) ' and dIscontent.
The wlCe , 11ercel\'lng thIs , grleed
much over It. The husband , ImaginIng
things that were not , grow glo my

In duo tlmo the two pIctures were
packed In separate crates and shlPPoli
to Paris and In due time the answers
came back.
