.Mildred had been shopping all morn
ing, attending to some last little pur
chases for her trousseau, and now as
she sat ut ft table, on what the man
agement of this small but quietly
.fashionable cafe was pleased to call
its terrace-garden, with a sense of ac
complishment that lessened fatigue,
she felt especially deserving of the re
freshment of a dainty luncheon.
She drew off her gloves and amused
herself by watching the heads of peo
ple, Just visible through the lower
part of the box-hedge aH they passed
In the avenue below; and the sudden
thought that "Hilly” might just possi
bly pass among them unconsciously
brought soft color to her cheeks and
a smile to her lips.
The waiter was pleasantly slow In
bringing her order. The passing heads
grew less Interesting. Mildred leaned
back In her chair with a sigh of con
tent and observed ihe people around
her. She was mentally commenting
upon the amusing difference between
the bats of two handsomely gowned
women at a distant table, one bat be
lng largo, enough to throw a shadow
over the table, and the other consist
ing of a twist of straw and an aigrette
that extended some twenty Inches Into
the nlr, when the words of a man be
hind her called her attention nearer
“Well," he was saying, cheerfully, "I
suppose you know that Hilly has done
"Yes," said his companion. "1 saw
the announcement this morning.”
"You know," said the first man,
meditatively turning his Mass, "there
Is as clear an Instance of a man ma
king up his mind to a purpose and ac
complishing It as any 1 have ever
"Opposition In the family?" the sec
"Oh, no. I Imagine everyone con
nected with the affair is pretty well
pleased. Hilly's rather a charming fel
low, you know.”
"No; I don't know," the other said
stiffly. "Hilly never made a great, hit
with me. lie has too good an opinion
"Why shouldn’t he have a good opin
Ion of himself?" the first retorted.
"He’s a fine-looking fellow, fascinating
talker, attractive personality, and a
pretty good business man, too. The
things that other men struggle for
have always come easily to him. I’ve
known Hilly since the kindergarten
age—almost; and he has always been
about the same, easy-going, witty,
good humored, charming. Ills mother
did her best to spoil him, and didn’t
quite succeed. In college he was too
popular for bis own good. And with
the ladles oh, the way that Billy cap
tivates the Indies!"
The speaker laughed as If In great
enjoyment at some recollections. ‘T've
always thought there must be u good
deal of character in Hilly that he sur
vived his early training. It was
enough to make a cad of the average
The silence of the second man
seemed to Intimate that lie was not
sure Hilly bad survived the training;
and Mildred’s cheeks grew hot with
The waiter approached with an Iced
consomme. Mildred picked up her
spoon, but presently put it down again.
What was the determination that the
man bad spoken of?
As if in echo of her thought, she
heard the question behind her:
“You haven’t explained the deter
mination you mentioned. Did he have
to win the girl away from some other
man? Teach her to love him?”
“No," said the first man. "She was
like the others- willing to learn.
Hut—" his voice carried a note of sur
prise—“you know about Billy, don’t
"1 don't know just what you’re driv
ing at. was the response.
"Why, everybody knows it. He never
made it a secret. Billy was out to
marry money. That is, money wasn’t
to he the whole thing, but a certain
amount of It was to be an absolute
'I said to him one day: 'Billy, why
don't you get married? You've been
frisking around long enough. The man
who waits until he is an old bachelor
before he marries is pretty sure to get
the worst of the deal. Young, pretty,
charming girls aren’t looking for old
bachlors anyway, aren’t loving them,
any more than your kind nre looking
for old maids. There’s no doubt about
it, Billy,' I said. You're the last fel
low I'd like to see follow my example.
You ought to get married.’
"Well, we had quite a talk on the
subject. Billy had it all figured out,
what he could do and what he was go
ing to do. lie said his Income was
only large enough to support hlmseir
in the style to which he had become
accustomed: that a little more income
would mean a little more style, so to
speak, because he had no Intention of
stinting himself in the various per
qulsits and luxuries of a gentleman,
as he viewed them; that he didn't see
how he was ever going to be able to
support a wife and family in the way
he considered desirable for his wife
and family; and that the girl he
blessed with his name would have to
be able to maintain herself, her chil
dren and the menage without drawing
"Excellent," said the second man.
“How manly of him not to plan for his
maintenance at her expense, too.”
"Oh, that’s Billy,” said the first,
laughing again "Ha had a system ol
ethics all his own. And don't think
for a moment that Billy was going to
pursue any petticoat that was fringed
with gold pieces. He said there were
lovely women with money as well as
without It, and it would be only one of
these for him. Lord, Billy Is too much
of an artist to live with a homely wom
an. I never saw him with one who
wouldn't make any escort proud.”
"I tell you, Billy Is a born captlva
tor of the ladies! He knew he could
do all he said. I'd bet within an ace
of all 1 possess that this Syracuse girl
Is a dashing young woman. I’d trust
Billy to pick out one for me!”
"Syracuse girl,” Is she?” the second
man asked. "I’m sorry for her. 1
never did think much of Billy, and
after what you've told me, I consider
him the most cold-blooded, conctltfcd,
full fledged cad—”
"Oh, pshaw!” the first exclaimed,
with the same easy laugh of enjoy
ment. "It's a question what any girl
is going to get In marriage. The girl
who gets Billy will be the envy of her
tribe. He'll stick to her, you know.
There isn’t a serious fault in his
‘1 disagree with you," said the other
Mildred heard their chairs pushed
hack from tho table, heard their re
treating footsteps, heard, last of all,
the pleasant, diminishing laugh of the
bachelor who had endeavored to per
suade Billy not to follow his example.
The waiter had removed the con
sommb, which mademoiselle had evi
dently dnly cared to taste; and the
rest of the light, repast she had or
dered was still before her. She tried
for appearance’s sake to eat, but the
effort of swallowing was too hard.
So that had been Billy’s determina
tion, which he had carried out—open
ly discussed among his friends—men!
Billy had picked her out as nearest
lo his Ideal, among the moneyed ones,
and had won her—won her! It was
bitter. And all of it was gossip among
his friends. They were even ready to
lay wagers upon her qualifications.
Mildred stared into the box hedge
with an intensity that made her face
look cruel. She was thinking, with
terrible, definite accuracy, before her
heart should begin to live again, and
her brain to feel rather than, to rea
son. After a while, she raised her
head. She felt desperately that she
must get to 6ome place where she
could cry her agony or that her heart
would burst with pain, and she strug
gled to her feet.
“I will say to him,’’ she told herself
In a gasping, half-uttered whisper, “ail
that I know; and that I despise him.
Oh, I am so glad that I found out In
time—So glad! So glad!”
With a swift realization that her
condition was becoming almost hys
terical and therefore noticeable, she
made a tremendous effort to be calm,
resumed the seat which the obse
queous waiter had already drawn
away, and with trembling finger pulled
on her gloves.
She saw that some one was ap
proaching the table, probably the wait
er bringing change—Mildred had
nearly forgotten to pay her bill. The
person stood beside her, but she did
not look up, knowing that her eyes
were blinded with tears.
"Mildred,” said a voice, deep and
beautiful to her ear as the music of a
Her hands dropped nervelessly into
The man seated himself opposite her
and leaned across the table.
“Mildred, dear,” he said, "what is :
the matter? Look at me.”
"What is the matter?’’ she felt her
self answering, though the words
never left her throat. “You are base.
I know you. and I despise you.”
"My dear girl,” he was saying, in a
tone of concern. “Are you ill? You
look all in. Do speak to me. I
haven't offended you by coming in,
have 1? I was passing in a cab and
caught a glimpse of you above the
wall. I would know the turn of your
head anywhere, If I snw it for a sec
ond.” His tone changed now to one
she knew so well, that made the pulses
hammer in her ears. “You can’t be
angry with me for stopping instantly
and coming it. Just tor a word with ;
you—one look from your eyes— |
She grew steadier and raised her
eyes, to give him one look, though not
the look he craved; but when she met
his eyes, deep-blue, so near to hers, so
eloquent, her lids dropped again, and
when once more they were raised, her
eyes were overflowing with tears.
She only looked at him, at his
clean-cut, masterful face, his fine
shoulders, his perfect clothes, his
strong, well-kept hand, and again his
"You are tired out, beloved, from
shopping,” he said. "I am going to
take you home.”
Unresisting, Mildred let him take
her away, dimly conscious that every
woman on the terrace was noting his
perfect chivalry of manner, feeling
that she wished she hated it.
lie put her into the cab, swung into
place beside her, and as the vehicle
started ofT on its usual jog, he drew
one of her hands into his and held it
there, low so that no one could see.
Hilly looker straight ahead, for he
was not one to exhibit love making in
a conspicuous place, in the daylight;
but he held her hand in a clasp that
seemed to make an electric circuit of
their two arms.
"Say that you love me, Mildred.” he
Twice she tried to answer him, but
her voice broke and she could not.
She had known the happy triumph of
conquest, the sweetness of surrender,
but until now she had not known the
weakness, the helplessness of love.
With quivering lips, she said:
"l love you, Billy.”
