Eileen Is certainly n little In 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 thoroughly as I do Eileen Erroll. She knows U ; so do you , Nina.

For a few moments lie paced the room , reflective , quickening his pace all the while , and his sister watched him , silent in her Indecision. "I'm going up to see the kids. " he eald abruptly. The children , one nnd nJ ! , were In the park , fort Eileen was bowing In the nursery , and his sister did not. call' him back ns ho swung out of the teem and up the stairs. But wlion ho had disappears ! Nina dropped Into hep chnlr , awarn thnt who Imd played her best card prematurely , forced by Ros amund , who had JusL told her that rumor continued to bo very busy cou pling her brother's name with the name of the woman who once had been his wife. Nina was now thoroughly convinced of Alixo's umisunl capacity for making mischief. She had known Allxo always , and she had seen lior develop from a - talented ented , restless- erratic , emotional rjtrl , easily moved fo generosity , Into au Impulsive woman , reckless" to the point of ruthlessness when ennui and unhapplness stampeded her. a woman not deliberately selfish , not wittingly immoral , for she lacked the passion which her emotion was sometimes mistaken - taken for , and she was kind by In- Btlnct. Sufficiently Intelligent to suffer from the lack of It In others , cultured to thg point of recognizing culture , her OWW ? b'crous unsoundness lay In her uttcrf lack of mental ntamina when condi tions became unpleasant beyond her will , not her ability to endure them. The consequenceof ! her own errors She refused to bo burdened with. To escape somehow was her paramount 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 ments when Nina believed her to bo 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. ] To Inform n man frankly that n young girl Is n little In love with him la one of the oldest , simplest and eaol- 'est ' method.s of Interesting tbat man I un cvj IK l.'t !

Of course she noticed this and , bend ing low above her sowing. wotered ! why. 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. dltions as she had left them a week ago. A week ago between him and her the most perfect of understand ings existed , and the consciousness of It she had carried with her every mo ment In the country amid the icy tum ble of the surf , on long , vigorous walks over the greening hills whore wild moorlaud winds whipped like a million fairy switches till the youug blood fair ly sang , pouring through her veins. 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 lection of her rldo with Rosamund nnd Instinctively her clear eyes flew open , nnd she raised her head , turning Erectly townrd him a disturbed gnze no did not this time evade. In silence their regard lingered ; then , satisfied , Bho smiled again , saying , "Have I been away BO long that wo must begin all over , Captain Selwyii ? " "Begin wtot , Eileen ? " "To remember that the silence of selfish preoccupation la a privilege I have not accorded you ? " ! "I didn't mean to be preoccupied. " I "Oh , worse and worse ! " She shook j her head and began to thread the nee- I die. "I see that my week's absence ! has not been very good for you. I knew It the moment you came In with nil that guilty , nbsentmlnded effrontery which I have forbidden. " no colored up as he took her hand In hl3. Then they both laughed nt the yery vigorous shako. "What n horribly unfriendly creature you can be , " said Eileen. "Never a greeting , never even a formal oxpres- f Ion of pleasure at my return " "i'ou "have not returned , " ho said , emlllng. "You have been with mo ev ery moment , Eileen , " "What n pretty tribute I" she exclaim ed. " 1 nm beginning to recognize trncea of my tralnlug after nil. " When the children came lu they left the nursery together and descended the stairs to the library. Austin had Just cotnu lu , aud ha looked up from his solitary cup of tea us they en tered. "Hello , youuKNler.il What conspiracy are you tip to now ? I suppose you sniffed the tea and have come to de prive me. Uy the way. Phil , I hear that you've sprung the trap ou the o Slowlthn people. " , * * "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 pended teacup , then drained It. "Trou ble with our friend Julius ? " ho hi- quired. "No trouble. I merely severed my connection with him. " "Ah ! Whoa ? " "This morning. " "In that case , " caid Austin , laugh ing , "I've n job for you. " "No , old follow , and thank you with nil my heart. I'vo half made up my mind to llvo on my Income for awhllo nnd take up that olmoslto matter ngoln. " "Aud blow yourself to smithereens ! Why spatter nature thus ?

"But , If It's not personal , why on earth have you shaken XoersardV And Solwyn answered simply : "I don't like him. Thnt Is the reason , Austin. " The children from the head of the stairs were now shouting demands for their father , imd Austin rose , pretend ing to grumble. "Those confounded kids !

"Is nil well with Gerald ? " "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. " ' * Ho said very quietly : "Eileen , Gerald jio longer takes mo Into hln confidence. 1 am afraid I know , In fact that I have little Influence with him now. I am Horry.

Well , If I were worth listening to no doubt he'd listen. But the fact remains that I have not Iwen able to hold his Inter- cat. " "Don't give him up , " she nald , still looking straight Into his eyes. "If you care for me , don't give him up. " "Caro Jor you , Eileen I You know I do. " "Yes , I know It.
