Margery was a most aggravating mls
anil mischievous, and she declined
wholly to accept me in the role of a
young gentleman of fashion, prefer
Ing to maintain the old relationship as
boy and girl. This was. as you tan
readily conceive, a constant source of
annoyance and humiliation to me, and

It was Just when I was feeling my
worst that I met the widow. It was at
a party, to which, by the way. Margery
had refused to accompany me, prefer
Ing to see the look of Impotent rage
which adorned my face. As I stood
biting my nails and wishing most
heartily that I was somewhere else,
when glancing a. toss the room I was
ila'r.lcd by a vision of lovliness which
fairly drove Lie blood back upon my
heart. It seemed that I had never
seen eyes so Mark and saucy, a com
plexion so richly olive, lips so red and
full and Inviting, a chin so dainty and
n form so altogether alluring. Well, I
whs formally int.-odueed ami most gra
ciously received. With the art of a
lever woman and a w idow she made
me feel that I was a most important
personage In her eyes and that she
liked me. I suppose that evening was
the happiest I ever knew - unless I ex
cept the evenings following. Her flat
tery w us incense to my spirit, wound
ed as It was by Margery's conduct.
Immediately I Iternme the devoted
slave of the widow. She was a few
years older than I. but the manner in
which she looked up to me and de
ft rred to my opinions convinced me
that I was really her elder in knowl
edge of the world and that she was
but a flinging vine wholly dependent
upon my strength anil wisdom.
Within a week I was wholly en
slaved. 1 could think of nothing, talk
of nothing but the widow Hy that
time I was calling her Nellie at her
own suggestion delitately conveyed. I
was ruinously extravagant in flowers
and theatres, and matters were pro
gressing rapidly. My affair with Mar
gery was forgotten, or. if remembered,
it seemed wholly childish beside the
fiery passion of my new love-making
And the love-making was all so easy
There was none of the embarrassment
so constantly arising in my relations
with Margery. The widow's plump
little hand seemed so invitingly- near
to mine at moments when it was pro
pitious to give it a warm squeeze, and
there were always so many perfect op
portunities for quite tetea teles. And
those teie a tetes - there never Wei
sin h delightful ones since the lgln
ning of time. The modest blushes and
tdglis of the widow nearly drove me
distracted with delight. 1 have sue

I remember the first time I kissed
her. It wns several week after I met
her. She had been particularly Invit

I glimpses of the daintiest of ankles
peeping irom me oaintiest or lingerie,
which I confess set me afire. She was
attired that night, too. in a gown that
suggested every line of her faultless
figure and kept my mind filled with
visions of gathering her In my arm.
A I arose to go I came pretty near
doeng tt even started toward her
but my timidity got the best of me and
I drew bark. Jus: then, la some un
accountable manner she tripped and
lurched toward me. Well, what could
I do but throw out my arms to save
her and In an Instant I had that
luscious morsel In my arms and when
she was recur ly there It all seemed o

me from her, telling me that she dared
not trust herself with me longer. And
I went home intoxicated with her
beauty and charms.
