Humbert? And what caused so many
differences between the dead Empress
of Austria and Francis Joseph? Was it
love led Napoleon III. to such inti
mate acquaintance with the Countess of
Castiglione? It was love en her side
but love for country, not love for a
man. It might have been outraged
love prompted Eugenie to fly to Scot,
land with a determination to get a
divorce, but it was more likely only
jealousy, for Queen Victoria patched up
the difficulty. George Eliot thought
it was love for her that induced Lewea
to be so attentive to her, but shortly
after his death she found some letters
which it is said proved he was working
her for tinancea while amusing himself
with the soubrettes. Why, come down
to modern society to our clay not
facts in history. I supposed all the
divorces in our noted families have been
caused by love A more modern term
might be found to designate it, without
much looking in the dictionary.
"I could continue illustrations of love
for an hour. I know hundreds of cases
by heart. When you get me started I
don't know when to stop. In my salad
days you might have told me what a
grand thing love is in fact, I have lis
tened to several fairy tales of the same
order. That is the trouble. I am too
sophisticated, too experienced, to be
told how men have died for love. Those
noble, conquering looks men give wo
men when they wish to spend ready
money on them are as graceful to me as
a K. P. plume. You know the kind of
things men say to women. Why, even
glaciers have crevices; but think of the
influence it has on the unsophisticated
woman raised for a 'woman's sphere
"It isn't good when an unsophisticated
woman is surprised by a sudden revela
tion of what true love is and it isn't
good for a man with tender sentiments
and emotions to fall into the hands of a
dangerous heathen like myself. I have
studied my subject closely and I get
filled up with my feelings. It is always
so surprising to a man to find he is not
the lordly pillar of strength unsophisti
cated women have led him to believe he
is. Women usually think in blanks
when it comes to box, and men are not
used to women who don't."
She gave him a defiant look, and he
gave her a curious one in return. Then
he said thoughtfully: "Marble or ice
"Neither," she snapped. "But I seri
ously object to furnishing inspiration
for poetry and novels and all sorts of
art, and when my well dries up find I
am not really a primary object."
"You are only a perverse woman
soured piobably because some man has
disappointed you. This should not
make you humiliate a man who does
care for you."
"Well, I might own up to the perver
sity, if you wish to call it that, but I am
bourgeoiee and not poetic in my tastes.
Poor people get married because they
want families poetical people because
they want love."
"I saw your second act of the 'Social
Highwayman' tonight. I think it your
"Alylbutyou are a clever boy, with a
capital C," she said with a pleasant
smile. "Now, if there is anything that
would make me love a man it would be
Don't jest. It does not become you,
and you have been playing with me all
the evening. I spoke seriously."
"Well, if it iB time to be really serious
I must hurry home. I have fifty-five
pages of Mrs. Hillary, in 'The Senator,'
to make mine by Saturday morning.
That is really a serious matter, I think.
Upon my soul, it is nearly as .hard for
me to study lines as to make love," and
she rose from the table with a sigh.
"Must you go?" he said, gently.
"Yes; those lines," she answered,
"When shall I see you again?"
"Whenever you please."
"Then it will be soon, and I hope you
will be your old bright self and out of
this ugly temper. Shall I get a car
riage?" "Not for worlds. I'm housed all day,
and I want tbo exercise and air. Do
look at that sleepy waiter, kept here
while we argue love."
"Are you ready?"
She ran up the steps to the Bidowalk,
and without speaking they fell into a
steady pace toward the hotol whore, ebo
The clock struck. "You'll have to
hurry to catch your car," she said, as
they reached the hotel.
He pressed her hand gently. "Good
night," he said, impressively, in an in
"Good night," she said, as she went
into the entrance.
She walked straight to the elevator,
sayin? to herself, "Wasn't it all a bore!
Why will men make such fools of them
selves? He was all right as long as ho
talked Flaubert or Balzac or Kipling
but I guess 'Mandalay went to hia head.
I suppose I will get a sarcastic remark
in his next review. It was very foolish
in me to explode so. I should have
been more diplomatic. I do get so pro
voked when men think all a woman is
for is to be handy for love affairs; and I
get still more provoked when women
think that is woman's proper sphere. I
never go to an aristocratic tea fight 1

handled this man so foolishly I believe
I am losing my common sense. I guess
I shall have to cage myself off and livo
as a freak,,
"Good night," she said to the elevator
boy, as she got off at the sixth floor.
But wait a minute. I promised you
tickets for Thursday night, didn't I?
I almost forgot them. Here they are,"
she added after delving into her purse.
"Have a good time, Jimmie, but don't
make love to her.' And the frou-frou
of her skirts sounded until the key was
heard rattling in the door. Town
