In New York Barclay wa not only a
financial, but a oclal leader. One a -year
he gave a ret ball, to which everybody
who waa Invited went, unles sickness
or some other major cause had laid them
by the heels. But It la not here a question
f Barclay's great ball. Those who looked
levelly at him or up to him In a social
way felt that he had set th stamp, of
arproval on ths girl from heaven and
burned to know her. . .
Celestla waa showered with Invitation,
most of which ah declined. But ah did
not decline them all. - It was her duty

of a great house overlooking Central

did not know this and the nam aimed
