Whitelaw Reid, the American ambas

his address Mr./Asquith said: "The
English Bible belongs not only to the
subject of King George, but to the
whole English-speaking world. One of
the truths which has been slowly real

Atlantic is that war between English

crime against civilization, but an int
forgivable breach of these few com
mandments; which are enshrined in
the New Testament.

When a man marries
His trouble begins.
At Least I Meant Well.
When the dreadful thing occurred
that night, every one turned on me.
The injustice of it hurt me most.
They said I got up the dinner, that I
asked them to give up other engage
ments and come, that I promised all
kinda of jollification, If they would
come; and then when they did come
and got In the papers, and every one
-but ourselves - laughed himself
black In the face, they turned on me!
I, who suffered ten times to their one!
I 8hall never forget what Dallas
Brown, said to me, standing with a
coal shcvel In one hand and a-well,
perhaps it would he better to tell lt
all m the order it happened.
It began with Jimmy Wilson and
a conspiracy, was helped on by a foot
square piece of yellow paper and a
Japanese butler, and it enmeshed and
mixed up generally ten respectable
members of society and a policeman;
Incidentally, it developed a pearl col
lar and a box of soap, which sounds
Incongruous, doesn't it?
It 1B a great misfortune to be stout,
especially for a man. Jim was ro
tund and looked shorter than he really
was, and as all the lines of his face,
or what should have been lines, were
really dimples, his face was about as
flexible and full of expression as a
pillow in a tight cover. The angrier
he got the funnier he looked, and
when he- was raging and his neck
swelled up over hi3 collar and got
red, he was entrancing. And ; every
body liked bim, and borrowed money
from him, and laughed at his pictures
(he has one in the Hargrave gallery
lr. London now, BO people buy them
lr s te ad), and smoked his cigarettes,
and triad to steal his Jap. The whole
story hinges on the Jap. ' ;
The trouble was, I think, that no
one took Jim seriously. His ambi
tion in life was to be taken seriously,
bet people steadily refused to. His
art was a huge Joke-except to him
EC f. If he asked people to dinner,
evwry one expected a frolic. When
ho married Bella Knowles, people
chuckled at the wedding, and consid
ered lt the wildest prank of Jimmy's
owe er, although Jim himself seemed
to take lt awfully hard.
We had all known them both for
yeara. I went to Farrington with
Bella, and Anne Browne was her . ma
tron of honor when she married Jim.
My first winter out. Jimmy had paid
me a lot of attention. He painted my
portrait in oils and had a studio tea
to exhibit lt It was a very nice pic
ture, but lt did not look like me, so I
stayed from the exhibition. Jim asked
me to. Ho said he was not a pho
tographer, . and that anyhow the rest
of my features called for the nose he
had give? me, and that all the Greuze
women have long necks. I have not
After I had refused Jim twice he
met Bella at a camp in tho Adiron
dacks, and when he came back he
carno at once to see me. Ho seemed
to think I would bo sorry to lose him,
and he blundered over the telling for
SO minutes. Of course, no woman
likes to lose a lover, no matter what
ehe cay say about lt, but Jim had
been getting on my nerves for somo
time, and I was much calmer than he
expected mo to me.
"If you mean," 1 said, finally In des
peration, "that you and Bella are-are
in love, why don't you say so, Jim?
I think you will find that I stand lt
He brightened perceptibly.
"I didn't know how you would take
lt, Kit," he said, "and I hope we will
always be bully friends. You are ab
solutely sure you don't caro a whoop
"Absolutely," I replied, and we
shook hands on it. Then ho began
about Bella; it was very tiresome.
Bella ls a nice girl, but I had room*
ed with her at school, and I was under
no Illusions. When Jim raved about
Bolla and her banjo, and Bolla and
her guitar, I had painful moments
when I recalled Bella learning her
two songs on each Instrument, and tho
old English ballad she had learned to
play on the harp. When he said she
was too good for him, I never batted
an eye. And I shook hands solemnly
aorosB the tea table again, and
wished him happiness--which was
sincere enough, but hopeless - and
said we had only been playing a game,
but that lt was time to stop playing.
Jim kissed my hand, and, it was really
We had been the best of friends
ever since. Two days before the wed
ding he came around from, his tailor's
and we burned all his letters to me.
He would read ono and say: "Here's
a crackerjack, Kit," and pass lt to
me. And after I had read lt we would
lay lt on the flrelog, and Jim would
say, "I am not worthy of her, Kit. I
wonder If I can make ber happy?" Or
-"Did you know that the duke of
Belfast proposed to her in London
Of course one has to take the
woman's word about a thing like that,
but the duke of Belford had been
mad about Maude Richards all the
You can see that the burning of
the letters, which was meant to be
reminiscently sentimental, a sort of
easton, became actually a two hours'
eulogy of Bella. And Just when I
was bored to death, the Mercer girls
dropped in and heard Jim begin to
read one commencing "dearest Kit"
And the next day after the rehearsal
dinner they told Bella!
There was vory nearly no wedding
at all. Bella came to see me m a
frenzy the next morning and threw
Jim and his two hundred odd pounds

have been bad enough without that
They went abroad on their wedding
journey, and stayed seve -al months.
And when Jim came back he was fat
ter than ever. Everybody noticed
it Bella had a gymnasium fitted up
in a corner of the studio, but he would
not use lt. He smoked n pipe and
painted all day, and drank beer and
would eat starches or whatever ft is
that ls fattening But be adored
Bella, and he was madly jealous of
her. At dinners he used tb glare at
the man who took her in, although it
did not make him thin. Bella was
flirting, too, and by the tima they had
been married a year, people hitched
their chairs together anil dropped
theil? voices when they were men
Well, on the anniversary of the day
Bella left him-oh, yes, she left him
finally. She was intense enough about
some things, and she said lt got on
her nerves to have everybody chuckle
when they asked for her husband.
They would say, "Hello, Bella! How's
Bubbles? Still b?hting?" J.ind Bella
would try to laugh and nay, "He
swears his tailor says his waist ls
smaller, but If it ls he must be grow
ing hollow in the back." But she
got tired of it at last Weil, on Che
second anniversary of Bella's depart
ure, Jimmy was feeling pretty .?glum,
and, as I say, I am very fond of Jim.
Th? divorce had just gone through
and Bella had taken her malden
name again and had had an operation
for appendicitis. We heard after
ward that they didn't find any ap
pendix, and that the one they showed
her in a glass jar was not hers! But
If Bella ever suspected, she didn't
say. Whether the appendix was anon
ymous or not, she got box after box of
flowers that were, and of course every
one knew That it was Jim who sent
To go back to the anniversary; I
went to Rothberg's to see the collec
tion of antique furniture-mother
"Look at That
was looking for a sideboard fqr fa
ther's birthday In March-*-and I met
Jimmy there looking into .1 worm-hole
in a seventeenth century bedpost with
the end of a match, and looking, his

"I'm blue today, Kit," h? said, after
we""Bad' fihaken nanda;--/Come and
help me dig bait and dien let's go
fishing. If there's a worin In every
hole in that bedpost, we could go into
the fish business. It's gool business."
"Better than painting?" I asked. But
he ignored the gibe and swelled up
alarmingly In order to sigh.
"This ls the worst day bf the year
for me," he, affirmed, staring straight
ahead, "and the longest Look at that
crack clock over ther. li.you want
to see your life passing a*ay, if you
want to see the steps by which you
are marching to eternity, vatch that
clock marking the time. Look at that
infernal and staying quiet for 60
seconds and then jumping forward to
catch up the procession. Ugh!"
"See here, Jim," I said, leaning for
ward, "you're not well. Yen can't go
through the rest of the daf -Uke this.
I know what you'll do. ??ou'll go
home to play Grieg on the pianola,
and you won't eat any dinker." He
looked guilty. ' \
''Not Grieg," he proteste! feebly.
"You're not going to do Mther," I
said with firmness. "You ire going
right home to unpack th&e new
draperies that Harry Bayless^ent you
from Shanghai, and you are&oing to
order dinner for eight-that r}wlll be
two tables of bridge. And yo^ are not
going to touch the pianola," j
He did not seem enthusiastic, but
he roso and picked up his Tat and
stood looking down at me vhere I
sat on an old horse-hair covei&d sofa.
"I wish to thunder I had married
you!" he said savagely. "YoFre the
finest girl I know, Kit, withoui excep
tion, and you are going to throw your
self away on Jack: Manning, or Max,
or some ether-"
. "Nothing of the sort," I said coldly,
"and the fact that you didn't marry
me does not give you the privilege of
abusing my friends. Anyhow, I don't
like you when you speak like that."
Jim took me to the door and stopped
there to sigh.
"I haven't been well," he said, heav
ily. "Don't eat, don't sleep. Wouldn't
you think I'd lose flesh? Kit"-he
lowered his voice so'- anly-"I have
gained two pounds!"
I said he didn't look it, which ap
peared to comfort Mm somewhat, and
because we were old friends, I asked
him where Belle was. He said he
thought she was in Europe, and that
he had heard she was going to marry
Reggie Wolfe. Then he sighed again,
muttered something about ordering
the funeral baked meats to be pre
pared and left me.
That was my entire share in the af
fair. I was the victim, both of cir
cumstances and of their plot, which
was mad on the face of it During the
entire time they never once let me
forget that I got up the dinner, that I
telephoned around for them. They
asked me why I couldn't cook
when not one of them knew one side
of a range from the other. And for
Anne Brown to talk the way she did
-saying I had always been crazy
about Jim, and that she believed I
had known all along that his aunt was
coming-for Anne to talk like that
was Bheer idiocy. Yea,'there was an
aunt The Japanese Butler started
the trouble, and Aunt Selina carried
it along. ,
The Way lt Began.
It make3 me angry every time I think
how I tried to make that dinner a
success. I canceled a theater en
gagement, and I took the Mercer girls
In the electric brougham father ha4
given me for Christmas. Their chauf
feur had been gone for hours with,
their machine, and they bad tele
phoned all the police stations withojt
success. They were afraid that there
had been an awful smash; they could
easily have replaced Bartlett, as Lol
lie said, but it takes so long to get
new parts for those foreign cars.
Jim had a house well uptown, and lt
stood Just enough apart from the
other houses to be entirely madden
ing later. It was a three-story affair,
with a basement kitchen and servants'
dining room. Then, of course, there
were cellars, as we found out after
ward. On the first floor there was a
large square hall, a formal reception
room, behind lt a big living room that
was also a library, then a den, and
back of all a Gregorian dining room,
with windows high above the ground,
on the top floor Jim had a studio, like
every other one I ever saw-perhaps
a little mussier. Jim was really a
grind at his painting, and there were
cigarette ashes and palette knives
and buffalo rugs and shields every
where. It is strange, but when I think
of that terrible house, I always see
the halls, enormous, covered with
heavy rugs, and stairs that would
have taken six housemaids to keep
