to be found in a social settlement."

the Berlin papers by correspondents
at Weimar, telling of events preced

show that there was a threat by
generals and officers of the volun
teer troops to quit if the treaty was
signed without reservations. Gus
tav Noske, minister of defense, prof
fered his resignation, out later suc
ceeded in appeasing the officers.
He then withdrew his resignation

A Rather Startling Question
Trent finished his breakfast with
a thoughful brow. He filled a pipe
sluwly, and seated himself on the
rail of the veranda. "Cupples," he
said quietfy, "is there anything about
this business that you know and
would rather not tell nie?"
Mr. Cupples gave a slight start,
ana turned an astonishing, gaze on
the questioner. W hat Ho you
mean?" he said.
"I mean about the Mandersons.
Look here! shall I tell you a thing
that strikes me about this affair at
the very beginning? Here's a man
suddenly and violently killed; and
nobody's heart seems to be broken
about it, to say the least. The
manager of the hotel spoke to me
about him as cooly as if he'd never
set eyes on him, though I under
stood they've been neighbors every
summer for some years. Then you
talk about the thing in the coldest
of blood. And Mrs. Manderson
well, you won't mind my saying that
I have heard of women being more
cut up about their husbands being
murdered than she seems to be. Is
there something in this, Cupples, or
is it my fancy? Was there some
thing queer about Manderson? I
traveled on the same boat with him
once, but never spoke to him. I
only know his public character,
which was repulsive enough. You
see, this may have a bearing on the
case; that's the only reason why I
Mr. Cupples took time for thought.
He fingered his spare beard and
looked out over the sea. At last he
turned to Trent. "I see no reason,"
he said, "why I shouldn't tell you as
between ourselves, my dear fellow.
I need not sav that this must not
be referred to, however distantly.
The truth is that nobody really
liked Manderson; and I think those
who were nearest to him liked him
"Why?" the other interjected.
"Most people found a difficulty
in explaining why. In trying to ac
count to myself for my own sensa
tions, I could only put it that one
felt in the man a complete absence
of the sympathetic faculty. There
was nothing outwardly repellent
about him. He was not ill-mannered,
or vicious, or dull indeed,
he could be remarkably interesting.
But I received the impression that
there could be no human creature
whom he would not sacrifice in the
pursuit of his schemes, in his task
of imposing himself and his will
upon the world. Perhaps that was
fanciful, but I think not altogether
so. However, the point is that
Mabel, I am sorry to say, was very
unhappy. I am nearly twice your
age, my dear boy, though you al
ways so kindly try to make me feel
as if we were contemporaries I am
getting to be an old man, and a great
many people have been good
enough to confide their matrimon
ial troubles to me; but I never
knew another case like my niece's
and her husband's. I have known
her since she was a baby, Trent, and
I know you understand, I think,
that I do not employ that word
lightly I know that she is as
amiable and honorable a woman, to
say nothing of her other good gifts,
as any man could wish. But Man
derson, for some time past, had
made her miserable."
"What did he do?" asked Trent,
as Mr. Cupples paused.
"When I put that question to
Mabel, her words were that he
seemed to nurse a perpetual griev
ance. He maintained a distance be
tween them, and he would say noth
ing. I don't Ttnow how it began or
what was behind it; and all she
would tell me on that point was that
he had no cause in the world for his
attitude. I think she knew what
was in his mind, whatever it was;
but She is full of pride. This seems
to have gone on for months. At
last, a week ago, she wrote to me.
I am the only near relative she has.
Her mother died when she was a
child; and after John Peter died,
I was something, like a father to
her until she married that was five
years ago. She asked me to come
and help her, and I came at once.
That is why I am here now."
Mr. Cupples paused and drank
tea. Trent smoked and stared out
at the hot June landscape.
"I would not go to White Gables,"
Mr. Cupples resumed. "You know
my views, I think, upon the eco
nomic constitution of society, and
the proper relationship of the capi
talist to the employe, and you know,
no doubt, what use that person made
of his vast economic power upon
several very notorious occasions. I
refer especially to the trouble in the
Pennsylvania coal fields, three years
ago. I regarded him, apart from all
ptrsonal dislike, in the light of a
criminal and a disgrace to society.
I came to this hotel, and I saw mj
niece here. She told me what I
have more briefly told you. She
said that the worry and the humil
iation of it, and the strain of trying
to keep up appearances before the
world, were telling upon her, and
she asked for my advice, I said 1
thought she should face him and
demand an explanation of his way
of treating her. But she would not
do that. She had always taken the
line of affecting not to notice the
change inhis demeanor, and noth
ing, I knew, would persuade her to
admit to him that she was injured,
once pride had led her into that
course. Life is quite full, my dear
Trenti" said Mr. Cupples with a
sigh, "of .these obstinate silences
and cultivated misunderstandings."
"Did she love him?" Trent in
quired abruptly. Mr. Cupples did
not reply at once. "Had she any
love left for him?" Trent amended.
Mr. Cupples played with his
teaspoon. "I am bound to say," he
answered slowly, "that I think not.
But you must not misunderstand
the woman. Trent. No power on
earth would have persuaded her to
admit that to any one even to her
self, perhaps so long as she con
sidered herself bound to him. And
I gather that, apart from this mys
terious sulking of late, he had al
ways been considerate and gener
ous." "You were saying that she re
fused to have it out with him."
"She did," replied Mr. Cupples.
"And I knew by experience that it
was quite useless to attempt to
move a Domecq where the sense of
dignity was involved. So I thought
it over carefully, and next day I

Manderson as he passed by this ho

a few minutes' conversation, and he
stepped inside the gate down there.
We had held no communication of
any kind since my niece's marriage,
but he remembered me, of course.
I put the matter to him at once and
quite definitely. I told him what
Mabel had confided to me. I said
that I would neither approve nor
condemn her action in bringing me
into the business, but that she was
suffering, and I considered it my
right to ask how he could justify
himself in placing her in such a
position." .
"And how did he take that?" said
Trent, smiling secretly at the land
scape. The picture of this mildest
of men calling the formidable Man
derson to account pleased him.
"Not very well," Mr. Cupples re
plied sadly. "In fact, far from well.
