Where have you been?"
Mother Graham threw the ques
tion at mc-as I came back from the

"Telephoning," I replied lacon
ically. Sometimes her constant e1
pionage innocent and Mwell-mean?
ing though it is irritates me almost
beyond endurance. I rarely have
made an unexpected movement dur
ing all our lives together without
aliy I reply, good-naturedly, but
sometimes I cannot help betraying
my annoyance. " V
"Telephoning!"" .Her voice be
trayed her amazement. "To whom?"
"To Lelia Fairfax."
"Because she called up this morn-
it'ar and asked that I do so." I

childishly determined to, tell her
r.othincr I could manage to keep to

as long as possible for th?. informa'
tion. It is simply impossible to
keen things from. Mother Graham
ence she sets her mind upon discos
erinoc them. ...
"What about?" she queried.
"I don't know" T replied weariljr.
' "Oh, If That's All!"
"Look here, Margaret," my moth-
cr-in-law said.t-ally, "you can't fool
me! iheres sometniag going on
tha! vou're tryinte to keep from me.
Now I want to know all abofrt this
girl's calling up this way. Whats
wrong? Has anything happened
to to Alfred or Richard?
There was . tremor in her old
voice through its natsnness and a
sudden wave of remorse blotted out
my irritation. I went up to her mi-
pjiMvely and put my arms around
her as I spoke. ' She misinterpreted
the action. .-- v
"Oh! What is it?" she exclaimed
wildly. - "Don't try to prepare tne.
Tell me at once."
"There is nothing, mother," I said
quickly, but decided!. "1 was jujt
silently apologizing for being slippy
in my answers. Leila telephoned
saying that she was very unhappy
and wished to see m; alone immedi
ately. But she said nothing about
"Oh, if that's all!" Her voice ex
pressed, lofty disdain of such trifles
as a girl's happiness. "She's
probably had a row with Alfred and
doesn't know, just how to fix it up.
Well, it won't'e the last. one sne'll
have, but they probably won't worry
her so much, after r. few years."
Leila's Obvious Agony.
The grim cynicism of age"and ex
perience was in. her voice. I found
the unhappy echo of it in my own
heart, and longed suddenly, wildly,
absurdly forthe days when Dicky's
smne or irown meant nours ot
laughter or hours of weeping..
1. realize, oi course, that the in
tensity with which most eneaeed
ad newly married persons, fegari
every word and actionthe assiduitv
with wiich they dissect their emo
tions and put them together again
is the most absurb thing in the
world, and that the real joy and
comfort of marriage come with a
saner outlook. And yet, there was
something about that wild, rapturous
time as I thought of it, I turned
abruptly away from my mother-in-
law lest she should see tiie quick
tears which had sprunp- to
yi must go out and iook tor ner,
I said practically. ' "She's coming1
right over in a taxi."
She d better save her money, my
mother-in-law commented erimlv.
and I made my escape thankful that
n her relief at finding Leila s er
rand was no, serious one, she had
forgotten to catechize me as to my
arrangements for seeing my friend
I slipped on a heavier wrap thai
had used for strolling with Junior,
and taking a magazine with me, I
went over to the big veranda of
Mrs. Luken's home to wait Leila's
arrival. . But I found that I couldn't
My mind went back years to the
days when I was preparing for my
own wedding, and when Leila's taxi
came up the driveway and my little
friend alighted from it I was pre
pared to be genuinely . sympathetic
with troubles that- nry .common
sense toldme were probably imagin
Bui one look .at her tortured face
showed me that it was no imaginary
trouble which-was distressing her. I
drew her quickly around h house
into the shelter of Mrs. Luken s
'What is it, dear? I asked, with
mv arms around her.
"Oh, MadSe! Rita"
Her voice broke into choking sobs.
Rita Brown's name, as Leila Fair
fax choked on its utterance, relieved
the'anxiety I had felt at the sight of
mv little friend's panic. I had feared
I knew not what, at my first
glimpse of her distorted fee. But
the name of the crirl I detested so
cordially, assured me that while Le
ila probably had good reason for the
emotion which was shaking her, yet
there was hovering over us no ca
lamity like death or maiming acci
dent the two contingencies I most
dread. - - -
Leila was in no condition to tell
me anything more than I had
learned from her first hysterical
mention of Rita's name. I guessed
that whatever had happened- was
something affecting her "engagement
to Alfred, and that she could not
bear to have either her own people
or Alfred s devoted mother suspect
that anything was wrong. She had
kept up appearances, at what cost I
could surmise from her pallid face
and hollow eyes, until she cpuld no
longer control herself. Thep she
had fled to me, and with the' relaxa
tion of the tension under which she
had been laboring, had come awcom
plete emotional collapse. '
With a wisdom born of similar ex
periences of my own, I asked no
more questions, made no more .com
ments. I led her' to 'an easy chajY,
removed her hat and knelt beside
her, letting her sob out her griej and
terror upon my shoulder..
Wheii long shuddering breaths be
gan to replace the tearing .sobs.' I
knew that the paroxysm had spent
itself, and that if I were to help my
little friend, the time, had arrived.
Her emotional tempest had cleared
the atmosphere. She must not be
left to brood longer, but must bi en
couraged to revelation - .

tions of orgies, born 1 was sure
partly in Rita Brown's depraved im
agination, partly in lurid literature
which she evidently had read.
Leila's delicate face burned crimson
as she talked, and her eyes dropped
from mine. ,
I remembered suddenly that this
girl was like, a sheltered debutante
in her .knowledge erf life, despite her
years in a New York studio. Her
sister, Edith, had always taken the
brunt of things, faced the world in
their lives together, and 'when Edith
went across the seas the older
women of the artist colony had
mntriprrl- the vnnrtc Virtrinia cirl
and had shielded her as her sister
had done. An elder, a more, world
ly-wise girl would have dismissed
Rita Brown's accusations with a
contemptuous word tO'Leila, they
evidently had been a. searing torture
As She paused, I put my hand
under her chin and lifted her flower
like face, to mine. '

, FRIENDHIP AND N
By JJ. Mundy.
There is no surer way to lose a
frienS- than to let a man's account
getSo big that he cannot pay it.
A'Joon as it reaches such dimen
sions he begins to be conscious ol
it, and fearing that it may get around
among his fellows, he begins to
throw out little stabs and, slurs about
the man whom he fears may tell
what he owes.
It is these debts, which we can
not .pay or which ha,ve assumed such
proportions , that - they worry us
which trouble the waters of friend
ship. So the Question arises which is
kinder, to .be exacting for prompt
payment when the obligation is due,
or so lenient that the one who owes
can forget the obligation, -even go
ing on to make it bigger.
Teach ydur children that the man
to whom they owe money has a
right to it when it is due.
They should not expect something
for nothing, and they should not go
on making (bills unless they can
figure to get, them, balanced . when
due. , ' - . ' -
