love with you , and n little with her
means something. And you evidently
have never harbored any serious In
tentions toward the child. I can see
that , because you are the most trans
parent man I ever knew. Now , the
question Is , What Is to bo done ? "
"I am , of course , obliged to bollevo
that you are mistaken , " he said. "A
man cannot choose but believe In that
manner. There Is no very young girl ,
nobody , old or young , whom I like as

said confidently.
For a few moments lie paced the
room , reflective , quickening his pace
all the while , and his sister watched
him , silent in her Indecision.

Impulse , and she always tried to had
always attempted It even In school
flays and further back when Nina
first remembered her as a thin , ongor ,
restless little girl scampering from one
scrape Into another at full speed
Even in those days there were mo

actually Irrational , but there was every
reason not to say so to the heedless
Bcatterbtaln whose father In the prime
of life sat all day In his room , his
faded eyes Used wistfully on the child
ish toys which his attendant brought
to him from bis daughter's nursery.
All this Nina was remembering , nnd
again she wondered bitterly at Altec's
treatment of her brother and what ex
planation there could ever bo ' 'or It
except one.
Lately , too , Allxo had scarcely been
nt pains to conceal her contempt for
her husband , If what Roiumund relat
ed was true. It was only one more
headlong scrape , this second marriage ,
find Nina know Allxe well enough to
expect the usual stampede toward that ;
gay phantom which was always beck
oning onward to promised happiness ,
that goal of heart's desire already ly
ing so far behind her , nnd farther still ,
for every step her little Hying foci
were taking In the oldest , the vainest ,
the most hopeless , chase in the world
the headlong hunt for happiness.
And If that blind hunt should lead
onco'more toward Selwyn ? Suppose ,
freed from Ruthveu , she turned In her
tracks nnd threw herself and her
youthful unhapplness straight at the
man who had not yet destroyed the
picture that Nina found wheu oho visit
ed her brother's rooms with the desire
to be good to him with rocking chairs.
Not that she really believed or feared
that Philip would consider such an
Impossible reconciliation ; pride and a
sense of the absurd must always check
nny such weird caprice of her broth
er's conscience , nnd yet nnd yet other
amazing and mlsmatcd couples had
done It had been reunited.
And Nina was mightily troubled , for
Alixe's capacity for mischief was
'boundless , and that she In Eomc man
ner had already succeeded in stirring
up Philip was n rumor that persisted
and would not be annihilated.

It seemed to him for n moment as
( hough he were looking at n woman
he had hoard about and had Just met
' for the first time. His observation of
her now was leisurely , calm and thor
ough not so calm , however , whoa ,
Impatient , of his reticence , bending
there over her work , she raised her
dark blue eyes to his , her head re
maining lowered. The sweet , allent
Inspection lasted but n moment. Then
she resumed'her stitches , aware that
something In him had changed since
she last had seen him. But she mere
ly smiled quietly to herself , confident
of his unaltered devotion In spite of
the strangely hard nnd unresponsive
gaze thnt had uneasily evaded hers.
As her white fingers flew with the
glimmering needle she reflected ou con.

ago. A week ago between him and
her the most perfect of understand

over the greening hills whore wild

fairy switches till the youug blood fair

Since that some time within the
week something evidently had hap
pened to him here in the city while
she had been away. What ?
As she bent above the fine linen gar
ment on her knee , needle flying , a sud
den memory stirred coldly the recol

have not accorded you ? "

yery vigorous shako.
"What n horribly unfriendly creature
you can be , " said Eileen. "Never a

"What n pretty tribute I" she exclaim

When the children came lu they left
the nursery together and descended
the stairs to the library. Austin had

"Necrgnrd has , I believe. " '
"Well. i u't It all one ? "
"No. it Is not , " retorted Selwyn so
bluntly that- Eileen turned from the
window nt a sound In lily voice which
she had never beforu heard. .
"Oh ! " Austin stared over hla sus

"No trouble. I merely severed my

"Ah ! Whoa ? "

"Y-yes , I suppose so. "
"Is he still with Necrgnrd & Co. ? "
"Yes , Eileen. "
"And you don't like Mr. Neergard-
"N-no. "
"Then Herald must not remain. "

She stood before him , straight , slen

"I cannot understand , " she said , "how
he could refuse to listen to n man like
you. "
"A man like me. Eileen ? Well , If I
were worth listening to no doubt he'd
listen. But the fact remains that I
