Suddenly, without warning, sho buried
Iter fnee ngninst his arm and burst into
tears. If ho was surprised, he did not
show it. With rnro tact, he merely
smoothed her hair and said nothing nt nil.
Then she drew back and smiled up at
him through her tears. "I 'm afraid I 'in
growing hysterical. But you ah, you
do understand, don't youf"
"Yes, dear, I understand."
When he had gone, bIio dropped back
again into the chair, her face buried in
her hands. For many moments she did
not move; then suddenly she sprang up,
glnnced at the clock and hurried over to
"Will you send mo. a messenger boyf "
It was only a few moments until the
boy came; but to Katherine, wnlking
feverishly up and down the room, it
seemed ns if ho would never come.
When she opened tho door to n freckled
face boy of fourteen, in tho fnmiliar blue
uniform, her heart was beating in her
"Come in ! I don't want you to take
n inessngo I want you to telephone for
me. Will youf"
"Sure I" Tho sangfroid of a mes
senger boy is a thing not easily disturbed.
There is no situation that he docs not
regard with dispassionnto calm.
" Listen 1 This is what I want you to
do to call up a number and nsk if some
ono is there then hang up tho receiver.
I do' 't want you to speak to them. I
just want to know if they 'ro there."
Tho boy nodded.
"Tho number is 1830 Plaza.. Just ask
if Jr. Wilmont is in. It 's an apart
ment, and tho telephone girl will ask who
you nro; just give any imino Mr. Moore
will do. Tf sho connects you and you
hear a man's voice, cut off at once. Hut
if sho says ho 's not there, ask if ho 's out
of town. And if ho is how long ho 'h
been gone. Can you remember all that I ' '
"Now bo suro you Iiavo it. right. The
number is 1830 I'laza. You are Mr.

I Won't you say it over to me, so J '11 bo

"1830 Plaza," tho boy repeated.
" Wilmont 's tho party, Mooro wants to
speak to him. If ho 's there, 1 Ml hang
up; if ho 's not, ask if ho 's out of
town. ' '
"Yes yes," eagerly, "that 's right.
Hero's tho 'phone."
He took down tho receiver. Katherine
stood closo by, her checks Hushed and her
hands tightly clenched.
"Hello! 1830 Plaza."
Kathcrino's tenso breathing was tho
only sound in tho moment's wait.
"That 1830 Plaza t"
"Mr, Wilmont there t"
"Ho 's not in J"
"Is ho In town!"
' ' Was thero at six o 'clock. ' '
Katherine motioned thnt was all, and
tho boy rnng off.
CUE turned for her pocket-book, her
hands trembling so sho could hardly
open it. When sho closed tho door after
j him, sho leaned ngninst it from sheer
Ho was In town. Ho had been there at
six o'clock. She could no longer deludo
herself with tho hopo that ho was nway,
that he had written and tho letter mis
carried. Ho was thero and ho had not
written nor telephoned nor como to her
becauso he had not wanted tot
With a little moan, sho crouched down
on tho floor still by tho door. To cross
tho room seemed an exertion of which sho
was not capable just then.
There could be no mistnko now ho
had ceased to love her. Ho had taken
that foolish little quarrel as an excuso to
end it all. Ho may oven havo been wait
ing for that opportunity. For months
he hnd not been tho same. Sho had felt
his gradual withdrawal, and it had made
her cling to him nil tho moro desperately.
Oh, she had loved him too much, and
shown it too freely! And now sho was
alone; she would always bo ulono.
When sho rose, sho steadied herself
against tho door, and then went into her
bedroom. To sleep not to suffer any
more just to sleep ! To stop this awful
pain in her heart nnd throat, to quiet it
Sho unlocked a trunk nnd took a pack
age from the lower tray. It was a large
sealed bottle of chloroform. With tho
scissors she loosened tho cork and set the
bottle on a tnble by the bed. Then she
slipped into a loose negligee, and lay
down. Oblivion cessation from suffer
ing that was what it would mean.
As she reached for the bottle she
thought vaguely of letters sho should have
written, the instructions sho should have
left. But no no, this intolerable pain
in her heart; she wanted to silence it
With the first fumes of tho chloroform
came n sense of relaxation, of peace. Then
a confusion of thoughts. Then a strange
throbbing sensation that seemed lifting
her and bearing her nway. Just as she
drifted into unconsciousness, the telephone
She stirred uneasily. Tho telephono
still rang. It aroused her slightly. Then,
without her having moved, there came to
her a feeling that she had arisen and an
swered it, that it was all right every
thing was all right now. And with tho
telephone still ringing she sitnk into com
A COLD stinging sensation nbout her
faco nnd neck. Sho opened her
eyes. Sho was on tho couch in tho front
room by an open window. An iced towel
was at her throat and somo ono was
dialling her hands. Thero was only a
moment's confusion then her mind was
quite clear. She met his eyes.
" Don 't don t try to talk now." His
voice was husky.
A sickening nausea nnd weakness was
swooping through her. Sho closed her
eyes again. After a whilo sho asked
"How did you knnwf"
"I didn't know. I seemed to feel it.
As soon as I left you I was restless and
worried. About an hour later I called
you iip; you didn't answer tho 'phone.
Then I camo nnd found you " His
"But tho door was locked," sho jkt
sisted, with a strango interest in tho de
tails. "I broko it open," simply.
' ' You broko it open t ' '
"It was very easy just a wrench.
Theso locks nro not strong."
"And no ono heard youf"
"No; no ono knows I 'm here. I cniiie

"But if if I had been boyond

you! Did you think of that f"
"Ah, how much you must care! " sho
"I love you," simply.
Another sickening wnvo claimed her
now; sho closed her eyes again. So she
had failed. Tho oblivion sho had sought
had eluded her. This man had dragged
her back to more suffering. Oh, why
had ho dono it! Why had ho not loft her
alone f Ho said ho loved her; yet he could
havo dono nothing moro cruel than this.
Perhaps ho guessed something of what
vaa iu her mind, for ho said gently:
"Katherino, if this is what you would
do with your lifo why don't you give
it to mot"
Sho smiled. Would you want it that
"I would want it any way."
Sho shook her head. ' ' If ever I marry
you, it will be because I care, not as a
desperato refngo from tho indifference
of another man."
"Then you must promise mo something,
I nsk this because I think I have tho
right. I believe that nny great lovo en
tails a certain obligation on tho person
loved, whether they wIhIi it or not. And
I am going to press that obligation upon
you. ' '
