At 10 o'clock Monte Bracken had
arrived in his automobile, and five
minutes later Morley, pale and
frightened, had brought down her
mistress' luggage and seen to its
storing. Bracken, who remained in
the back seat without descending,
made no offer of explanation.
"Good evening, Morley."
"Good evening, sir," she had re
plied, and to herself she thought,
"He looks more like a ghost than
she does."
"Put the bags in front."
"Yes, sir. Mrs. Forrester said to
say she'd be right down."
"Very well."
It was all done quite openly.
There could be no question of what
was happening. Gregory, who was
aiding with the bags, did not dare
to question Mr. Bracken's chauffeur,
even with his eyes. Among the ser
vants was the terrified calm, the
panic of all the senses, that comes
below stairs with the approach of
a catastrophe above. Morley hesi
tated as though half expecting some
explanation would be volunteered
some plausible lie that would de
ceive no one. Then she ran back
upstairs hurriedly, out of breath.
Amy, cloaked and veiled, was
waiting by the trunks. She had
been entirely calm and matter-of-fact
until now, but at the last
moment her fingers faltered on the
keys. Try as she might, she could
not manage the lock.
"The key sticks; lock the trunks,"
she said hastily.
Morley obeyed. One lock stuck.
She was quite a moment before she
"You will join me later with the
trunks," said her mistress slowly.
"I will telegraph you in a day or
so. You understand?"
"Yes, madame yes."
"That is all now," she said, look
ing around and going over to the
desk. She took up the letter she
had written Andrew. "You wilf
give this to Mr. Forrester immedi
ately when he returns. ' Or, no
you need not stay up; Gregory will
attend to that." ,
She gave the letter to Morley,
who stood transfixed, turning it over
in her hafid.
"Well, I am quite calm," she
thought. "It's strange, I am doing
something that is going to unset
everything, and I don't feel as

though it were anything out of the
prdinary. I am calm, and I know
just what I am doing."
Nevertheless, as she was descend
ing the stairs, Morley came running
after her with her handbag, which
she had forgotten. She took it
with a first feeling of agitation.
She was annoyed to have betrayed
an emotion before a servant emo
tion which she was certain she did
not feel.
She passed through the hallway.
Outside, standing by the door,
Monte was waiting for her. She
nodded, took his hand and stepped
immediately into the car. Each in
stant seemed long and horribly de
cisive. She heard them as though
a clock were ticking them off. He
entered, closing the door.
"Well, I am here," she said in a
low voice.
"You are qnite quite sure?"
It never occurred to her that he
also might have been hesitating be
fore the cost, before what he too
might have to face. She was not
thinking of him at all, only herself
was important The one thing that
was important was that she should
prove to herself that she had the
heroism to make the great sacri
fice. "Drive onl" she heard him say.
The next moment they were moving
out from the region of light into
the darkness ahead. 1
"Well, it's over I have had the

From the moment she had come
to him at the edge of the pier and
held out her hand, it had all been
settled. It could, not be otherwise.
She had seen hirri again the evening
of the second day after, and all had
been said. It was out on the veran
da of the Challoner's, where they
hadVmet for dinner.
"You know what it meant when I
came to you the other day?" she
said directly.
"I know."
"I came because I could not help
it because I found I could not live
without you."
T too " he began hurriedly.
"Yes, I know I saw," she said,
nodding. Monte, all that you said
of me was true at least, was true

"Do you realize what all this
would mean?" he said slowly.
"Yes. all." she said firmly, "But I
am tired of cheating, tired of being
just what you told me I was. I
don't want to fall back on subter
fuges sacrifice others, I want to
do what J do proudly I want to
believe in myself."
"Yes, I see," he said gravely.
"And then, it is only fair to him."
"And after?"
"I-shall go to a hotel in New
York to Europe perhaps. Andrew
will sue at once for a divorce on
the grounds of desertion. J think
it would be better for you not to
join me until then. As long as I
bear his name I shan't do anything
against that. You would not want
me to either I"
"You have thought this all over,
Amy?" hesaid again.
"All! Again and again!"
"When" He hesitated, "when do
you want to go away?"
"Andrew will arrive Friday the
next night."
He was surprised at the immi
nence of the thing, at every word
she had said, at the complete as
sumption of his acceptance of what
she had decided. Down the porch a
door opened and Kitty's voice call-

her voice growing gentle, "when I

He nodded, touching her hand
lightly. He would have liked to
have said a hundred things that
were in his:, perturbed mind but
others were bearing down on them.
He felt as though he were strug
gling hopelessly against something
that could not be avoided, livery
word he had said had been en
forced on him every action dictat
ed by his code of honor, which was
the Samurai creed of his kind.
