Of course, Diana Inferred that the modern man had bU capacity to
love conserved down to one object, but over that object he kept guard
with ail a Turk's dominant monopoly.
What would ou think of the Turk In a man that asserts Itself even
against the camera?
There is now in our midst a beautiful guest that hasn't a photograph
of herself to her name.

She is pretty, charming and gracious; but the veil of the orient is
fever her face so far as Image making Is concerned.
"No, no, no! I'm not even to be snap-shotted;" she cMps In alarm at the
suggestion; my husband would be sure to find It out. And then! I Ju&t
believe he would shoot over It."
Here is Diana's Turk, purs and simple. True, he lets the object of
bis devotion out Into the world. But he has found a way to veil her, hold
