Archibald Terhune, a popular and in
dolent young bachelor of London, re
cel', na news that he has been made heir
to the estate of his Aunt Georgiana, with
an Income of $20,000 a y ?tai, on condition
that he become engaged to be married
within ten days. Foiling to do so the
legacy will go to a third cousin in Amer
ica. The ?tory opi na at Castle Wyckoff.
where Lord Vincent and his wife, f-'mda
of Terhune, are discussing plans to And
him a wife within the prescribed time. It
seems that Lady Vincent ls one of seven
persons named Agatha all close girlhood
chums. She decides to invite two of them
to the castle and have Archie there as
one of the guests. Agatha Sixth strikes
Archie as- a handpalnted beauty. Agatha
First is a breezy American girl. Lady
Vincent tells her husband that Agatha
Sixth already cares for Archie. He gains
from Agatha Sixth the admission that
she cares for him, but will require a
month's time fully to make up her mind.
Agatha First, neglected by Terhune. re
ceives attentions from Leslie Freer. Four
days of the precious time have passed
when Terhune is called to London on
business. Agatha First, on the plea of
sickness, excuses herself from a motor
trip planned by the Vincents. Later they
see Agatha First picking flowers with a
strange man. The Vincents discuss
Agatha's seeming duplicity. The follow
ing day the party visits the ruins of an
old convent Terhune continues his at
tentions to Agatha Sixth. Then suddenly
he transfers his attentions to Agatha
First. Vincent scores him for his appar
ent fickleness. The last evening of the
time allotted In which to become engaged
arrives. The following day Solicitor Burns
will arrive from London, and the Vin
cents are anxious to consummate the en
gagement. Vincent discovers Agatha
First and a man with his arm around
her waist. Vincent decides that the man
must be Terhune. The next morning Ter
hune and Agatha First are very friendly
at the breakfast table, while Agatha
Sixth seems somewhat displeased. Solici
tor Burns arrives. The Vincents are
anxious. In an interview of Vincent and
his wife the latter cries In desperation
over the puzzling condition of affairs.
Solicitor Barnes arrives. The Vincent's
are anxious. Will Terhune report an af
fianced or a free man? Terhune tells
Lord Vincent that he proposed to Agatha
Sixth and that she had refusfd to marry
him. Terhune declares that if he cannot
have the woman of his choice that he
will sacrifice his aunt's fortune. An auto
mobile arrives. Murray Brancepeth, a
young mar. who resembles Terhune. steps
out of tho machine. He has been In love
with Agatha First, and was the man in
the checkered suit. It now lacks three
minutes of the time that Terhune has for
announcing his engagement. Vincent
rushes Terhune to urge Agatha Sixth to
accept him. Solicitor Barnes ls notified
and the ceremony Is performed.
He had at first, it appeared, called
upon Agatha Endicott when she was
staying at Chiltern house, and courted |
her openly, but on hearing of the Sim
plln complication, Chiltern, who hated
the possibility of being dragged into a
family row, as much as he disliked to
be responsible for offending bis power
ful friend and ally, had objected vehem
ently and had forbidden a continuance
of their intimacy, at least for as long
as lt was in his power to demand obe
dience. That is, while the girl was a
guest under his roof, which decree
had forced Brancepeth to cease his at
tentions temporarily, when our Invita
tion to make one of our house party
had mercifully removed the other prin
cipal in this romance to Wyckhoff cas
tle. A change of scene, which while lt
did not utterly remove her from the
sphere of danger, since a chance visit
on the part of either her former or
present hostess to either mansion
might reveal all, still afforded her a
better opportunity to see her lover.
A state of affairs which naturall;
explained Agatha First's reluctance to
have my wife make the trip to Chiltern
house, where she feared mutual revela
tions m)ght be made which must neces
sarily expose the secret of Brance
peth's courtship of her, continued as lt
was, in spite of and against Mr. Chil
tern^ expressed wish. It was also
made plain to us that Agatha First's
devotion to Terhune sprang from two '
sources. It was assumed partly to '
throw Mrs. Chiltern off the scent in '
case she should make any attempt to 1
find out whether Brancepeth were still '
continuing his attentions. In case of (
awkward questions she wished my wife 1
to he able to say with truth that her 1
guost was Interested in some one else. 1
That some one else chancing to be Ter
hune. She had also indulged In her *
flirtation with Arch, she admitted 1
with a most engaging laugh and teas
ing glance at her lover, partly because I
she had conceived a fondness for the 1
old boy, but softened this shaft by add- 1
lng that she liked to talk to him be- 1
cause she had discovered that he knew
Brancepeth, and she was therefor able '
to talk about her lover, though she <
could not often see him. Terhune's 1
fondness for her society-for being <
with Agatha First-I thought, could be (
explained even more simply. He had '
quite given himself away that time !
when he had so naively confided to me <
his belief that the girl was in love with 1
"By George!" said young Murray. 1
feelingly, as be finished his part of the
duet the two had been giving for our 1
benefit, "how I love that squire, or 1
farmer, or whatever it was she mar- '
ried! I'll never forget to my dying
day what I owe him for cutting me out
like that! Keen about his cheek, aren't 1
He's awfully young. Brancepeth, but 1
rather a decent sort on the whole, and 1
I can see that he's grown steadier and
more of a man than when I knew him
a year ago. And I'm glad of that '
Agatha First ls a fine girl and deserves ? <
a fine man.
"Well. I never did in all my life!" j
said Dearest, as a sort of l'envoi to the
romantic tale of our guests. "What <
will happen next, I wonder? What is
there left to happen?" ?
"Nothing possibly," said the three of
us together. Solicitor Barnes, by the 1
way, had taken no part in the discus- j
sion of these Interesting events-but 1
we spoke too soon. For even as the 1
words left our mouths I saw Brance
peth, who faced the French windows '
of the dining room, which opened out !
on to the side veranda, pointing with '
his finger at some apparition which
had evidently jusf/come within his !
range of vision.
'Lcok!" he said'.
I tr.mod around, but before I could
exclafri, Dearest had pushed back her -
chair with a cry or pleased suprlse and
started forward. "Why, it's the Chil
terns," she said.
And so it was. Our friends from the I
a ext county had arrived in our midst,
wheralded even by the noise of their
noter car, which now made itself plain
y audible as it chugged ita way slow
y to our garage, so intent had we been
jpon the telling of Agatha First's and
"Friends," said Chiltern In the wear
ied, bored tones that have become ha
bitual to him as chairman of Innumera
ble political meetings, "we have come
to tell you-" \
"We feel lt our duty to tell you," put
n Agatha Fourth.
"That you are undertaking a great
responsibility in allowing our former
?uest, Miss Endicott, to receive the at
entions of-" There he Stopped short,
for he seemed to perceive for the first
time Brancepeth and Agatha First,
jeated tranquilly side by side at the
table. But in spite of this damper, he
struggled bravely on with what he had
evidently come with his mind made up
:o say. By this time we, Dearest and I,
lad gotten an Inkling of what that was.
He had come, we could see, to warn us
igainst encouraging the affair be
tween Brancepeth and Agatha First
the report having at last reached him
n some way cr other that it was be
ing carried on more furiously than
ever under our protection, but we had
io doubt, however, that, aside from his
personal Interest in putting a stop to
the thing, the man was convinced that
!?e was acting for Brancepeth's inter
ests as well In interfering, since ,it
lad been true enough that the lad was
so placed that he could not well afford
to offend his uncle. Chiltern ls a fine
'ellow, all right, but he's a good deal
alder than I am, and a conservative In
private life as well as public. But In
mite of his tendency to preach, and an
jbnoxious habit of expecting everyone
io toe the mark as rigorously as he
loes himself, I rather like the old cock.
He's deuced popular with men, certain
ly, and ls unanimously returned by his
borough every election. And then, as
mother excuse for what might other
wise seem his uncalled for interfer
ence in this affair, I rather think he
fancied he waa doing Dearest and my
self a kindness in informing us of the
true inwardness of the situation, that
nrs might at least be able to act with
)ur eyes open. That he meant well, I
felt no doubt
Nevertheless, I could see that the
>art of informant was distasteful to his
(vile, who, in all probability, had been
the means of delaying execution of
that duty so long.
These things having become clear to
is, we also perceived that the Hon.
3ecil Chiltern could not possibly be
?ware of that morning's events, tho
elopement of Miss SImplIn and conse
quent sanction of Brancepeth's uncle
?pon his marriage with Agatha First.
3o, with one voice and mind, we un
lertook to enlighten him, Brancepeth
ind Miss Endicott having grasped the
mject of his visit on the moment of his
"I feel lt my duty," Chiltern began
igaln, then paused. He seemed to have
Mfflculty in proceeding, with all our
istonished tidingful eyes upon him, but
we let him get no further.
"lt's all right! Don't worry. Have
some lunch, do, Cecil, old boy. You
ook done!" added young Murray cor
ilally. And it was a rippln' hot day,
But Cecil was not to be beguiled.
"I feel it my duty," he reiterated
manfully. But we would have none
il lt at all.
"Oh, hang your duty," urged Brance
peth, lightly. "It's all right, I tell you.
We're gOius to be married, Miss Endl
eu and I."
"Miss Slmplin eloped this morning,"
lupplemented Agatha First.
"And my uncle has given us his
blessing," finished Brancepeth: And at
this astounding Intelligence Chiltern
succumbed entirely and was as clay In
Seizing him each under an arm we
had him sitting at the table In no time.
Brancepeth was even solicitously tuck
ing a napkin under the dignified gen
tleman's chin when he came to and
pushed him aside with a frown.
"Take that thing away," he said;
"I'm not a child!"
Then he caught his.-wife's eye as
Agatha Fourth, very -?eautlful In a pale
blue outfit placards down the middle
with lace, was graciously allowing
Dearest and Agatha First to seat her
at the table, and they laughed-the two
of them-Agatha Fourth relievedly,
Chiltern a trifle shamefacedly.
"It seems my fervor of duty was
quite wasted," he said. "But, upon my
word, I meant well. Mrs. Chiltern and
I did our best to persuade Miss Endi
cott, there, to give the thing up long
ago, until matters arranged them
selves. But she was very aeadstrong,
very indeed!" And he shook his head
whimsically at his late guest and
smiled. She smiled back at bim.
"And you see It didn't do any harm
after all!" she told h'm brightly, "my
being headstrong. Everything has all
worked out for the best!"
"Rather!" remarked Brancepeth, ard
ently, and threw her a glance that
made her fine color rise.
For myself, I never felt more bril
liant, and Brancepeth vied with me in
getting up would-he humorous tele
grams, first t Tt .-hune's Aunt Georgy,
and then to Miss Slmplln, apprising
them of the beatific state of the matri
monial prospects of himself and Arch.
"It's a pity they can't be here to
share in the joy which has been the di
rect result of their handiwork," said
young Murray, to whom, and to his
fiancee, we had confided the sentimen
tal situation between Terhune and
"Rather!" I iald. "Their presence Is
the only rhine lacking to make this
particular soiree as good as the third
act of a well balanced comedy, where
all the characters appear at once and
compose themselves into statuesque
groups about the stage."
"Yes," he agreed, "but if we're going
to have all the characters in our play
appear, we ought really to have invited
Mrs. Armistead and the three other
Agathas with their American husbands
for luncheon, to make it quite com
"Right!" I agreed, enthusiastically.
"I say, wouldn't that have been jolly?"
And we laughed delightedly. I was so
elated over everything in general, and
the outcome of Dearest's and my
match-making schemes in particular,
that I was amused at anything at all.
But if Murray and I were hilarious,
you should have seen those girls!
Their consciences seemed to be worry
ing them for some reason, for every
half minute they'd get up and embrace
each other and ask each other to for
give them. If lt wasn't Agatha First
who was falling on Agatha Fourtn'a
neck, it was Dearest who was falling
on Agatha First's neck.
By Jov?.'! lt got rather tiresome,
though once in a while, for a change,
they'd all three get up and clinch so
tight I couldn't for the life of me have
said which was my own wife.
We couldn't get anywhere at all with
the meal, and Brancepeth and I began
to feel quite left out, they kept it up
! so. But when we attempted to fall on
the necks of Solicitor Barnes and old
Chiltern, respectively, just by way of
getting into the game, we were rudely,
and I may say almost violently re
pulsed, so that we were unable to find
out what the fun was in that sort of
thing at all.
It was only when we had quieted
down somewhat, the girls and 15 nm oe
peth and myself, that Solicitor Barnes,
who had heretofore been giving his
undivided attention to his luncheon,
condescended to speak.
"Where are Mr. Terhune and his-ah
-er-fiancee, if I may ask?" he said.
"One would have supposed that my
client's nephew, Mr.-ah!-Mr. Ter
hune-would have had more curiosity
as to the exact value of the property
to which he has only just become
"I suppose they're still standing on
the stairs, Just where we left them,"
said my wife, ecstatically. "The
"Not a very comfortable place to
make love in I should say," comment
ed the solicitor dryly-he was a bache
lor himself. "But I presume they hard
ly realize where they are, poor things."
And his thin lips parted slightly in a
smile of infinite pity.
But nobody else at the table seemed
at all to comprehend his sarcasm.
Quietly, unobtrusively, my wife and
1 exchanged glances, and Irritatingly
enough Brancepeth and Agatha First,
and even the impassive Chiltern and
Agatha Fourth did the same. We none
01 us saw anything at all queer or out
of the ordinary in the conduct o?
Agatha Sixth and Terhune. You see,
we'd been there ourselves.
And as a needle to its magnet, so did
the hands of Dearest and myself, as we
sat cat-a-cornered at the table, seek
each other under the cover. And with
that clasp the last remnant of the ill
feeling the exciting events of the past
few days had tried to make between us
vanished, and I vowed, as I lost myself
in the depths of those dear gray eyes,
that even as It had been our first mis
understanding, by Jove! it should bs
