Speaker Clark does not agree with
Senator Root that congress is likely
to adjourn by June 1. At the white
house where he said he had talked
"neighborhood gossip" with Mr. Taft,
Mr. Clark declared that nobody in the
world knew how long congress would
be here. "I know as much about it
as Senator Root, and he knows as
much about it as I do," said Mr.
Clark. "I have attended two special
sessions of congress called to revise
the tariff which lasted into August.
There you are."
Under the reapportionment bill,

way in this regard.

by his' friends. Jimmy was rotund and
looked shorter than he really was. His
ambition in life was to be taken seriously,
but people steadily refused to do so. his
art is considered a huge Joke, except to
himself, if he asked people to dinner ev
oryone expected a frolic. Jimmy marries
Bella Knowles; they live together a year
and are divorced. Jimmy's friend? ar

of nts divorc?. Thoso who attend the
party are Miss Katherine McNalr. who
every one calls Kit. Mr. and Mrs. Dallas
Brown, the Misses Mercer. Maxwell Reed
?nd a Mr. Thomas Harbison, a 8outh
American civil enginoer. The party ls In
full swing when Jimmy receives a tele
gram from his Aunt Selina, who will ar
rive in four hours to visit him and his
wife. Jimmy gets his funds from Aunt
Belina and after he marries she doubles
his allowance. He neglects to tell her of
his divorce, as she le opposed to lt Jim

to devise some way i?o that his aunt will
not learn that he has no longer a wife.
He suggests that Kltplay the hostess for
one night, be Mrs. wilson pro tem. . Kit
refuses, but ls finely prevailed upon to
act the part. Aunt Selina arrives and the
?eceptlon works out as planned, as she

CHAPTER IV. (Continued.)
"Ifs Immoral," I protested. "It's
.inmoral to steal your-"
"My own butler!" she broke In Im
patiently. "You're not usually so
scrupulous, Kit Hurry! I hear that
hateful Anne Brown."
So we slid back along the hall, and
I rang for Takahlro. But no one came.
"I think I ought to tell you. Bella,"
I said as we waited, and Bella was
staring around the room-"I think you
ought to know that Miss Carutbers is
here." Bolla shrugged her shoulders.
"Well, thank goodness," she said.
"I don't have to see her. The only
pleasant thing I remember about my
year of married life is that I did not
meet Aunt Selina."
I rang again, but still there was no
answer. And then it occurred to me
that the stillness below stairs was al
most oppressive. Bella was noticing
things, too, for she began to fasten
her veil again with a malicious little
"One of the things I remember my
late husband Baying," she observed,
"was that he could manage this house,
and had done lt for years, with flaw
less service. Stand on the bell. Kit"
I did. We stood there, with the
table, just as lt had been left be
tween us and waited for a response.
Bella was growing Impatient She
raised her eyebrows (she ls very
handsome, Bella is) and flung nut her
chin as if she had begun to enjoy the
I thought I heard a rattle of sliver
from the pantry just then, and I hur
ried to the door in a rage. But the
pantry was empty of servants and
full of dishes, and all the lights were
out but one, which was burning dimly.
I could have sworn that I saw one of
the servants duck into the stairway to
the basement, but when I got there
the stairs were empty, and something
was burning in the kitchen below.
Bella had followed me and was peer
ing over my shoulder curiously.
"There isn't a servant in the house,"
she said triumphantly. And when we
went down to the kitchen, she seemed
to bo right It was in disgraceful or
der, and one of the bottles of wine
that had been banished from the din
ing room sat half empty on the floor.
"Drunk!" Bella said with conviction.'
But I didn't think so. There had not
been time enough, for ono thing. Sud
denly I remembered the ambulance
that bad been the cause of Bella's ap
pearance-for no one could believe
her silly story about Takahlro. I
simply left her there, stnrlng helpless
ly at the confusion, and ran upstairs
again; through the dining room, past
Jimmy and Aunt Selina, past Leila
Mercer and Max, who were flirting on
the stairs, up, up to the servants' bed
rooms, and there my suspicions were
verified. There was every evidence of
a hasty flight; In three bedrooms five
trunks stood locked and ominous, and
the closets yawned with open door,
empty. Bella had been right; there
was not a servant in the house.
As I emerged from the untidy empti
ness of the servants' wing, I met Mr.
Harbison coming out of the studio.
"I wish you would let me do some
of this running about for you,' Mrs.
Wilson," he said "gravely. "You are
not well, and I can't think of anything
worso for a headache. Has the but
ler's Illness clogged the household ma
"Worse," I replied, trying not to
breathe In gasps. "I wouldn't be run
ning around-like this-but there ls
not a servant In the house! They
have gone, tho entire lot"
"That's odd," he said slowly. "Gone!
Are you sure?"
In reply I pointed to the servants'
wing. "Trunks packed," I said trag
ically, "rooms empty, kitchen and pan
tries full of dishes. Did you ever
hear of anything like lt?"
"Never," he asserted. "It makes me
suspect-" What he suspected he did
not say; instead he turned on his
heel, without a word of explanation,
and ran down the stairs. I stood star
ing after him, wondering if ev'ry one
In tho place had gone crazy. Then
I heard Betty Mercer scream and the
rest talking loud and laughing, and
Mr. Harbison came up the stairs again
two at a time.
"How long has that Jap been ailing,
Mrs. Wtlson?" he* asked.
"I-I don't know," I replied helpless
ly. "What ls tho trouble, anyhow?"
"I think he probably lias something
contagious," he said, "and it has
scared the servants away. As Mr.
Brown said, he looked spotty. I eug
gested to your husband that it might
be as well to got tho house emptied
In casu wo are correct."
' "Oh. yea, by all means." I said
eagerly. 1 couldn't get away ico soon.
Til go ?:id get my-" Then I r-touped.
I TEN, ETC.
Why, the man wouldn't expect me to
leave; I would have to- play out the
wretched farce to the end!
"I'll go down and see them off," 1
finished tamely, and we went together
down the stairs.
Just for the moment I forgot Bella
altogether. I found Aunt Selina
bonneted and cloaked, taking a stirrup
cup of Pomona for her nerves, and the
rest throwing on their wraps in a hur
ry. Downstairs Max was telephoning
for his car, which wasn't due for an
hour, and Jim was walking up and
down, swearing under his' breath.
With the prospect of getting rid of
them all, and of going home comfort
ably to try to forget the whole wretch
ed affair, I cheered up/quite a lot I

I forgot how many votes, and the
thing to do was to be quiet and com
fortable and we would get out in the
morning. Max took it os a huge joke,
and somebody found bim at the tele
phone, calling up his club. The Mer
cer girls were hysterically giggling,
and Aunt Selina sat on a stiff-backed
chair and took aromatic spirits of am
monia. As for Jim, he had collapsed
on the lowest step of the stairs, and
sat there with his bead in his hands.
When he did look up, he didn't dare
to look at me.
The Harbison man was arguing
with the impassive individual on the
top step outside, and I saw him get
out his pocketbook and offer n crisp
bundle of bills. But the man from the
board of health only smiled and
tacked at his offensive sign. After
a while Mr. Harbison came in and
closed the door, and we st?red at one

said, swallowing a lump in my throat

"Home!" Aunt Selina gasped,
jumping up and almost dropping ber

Jimmy groaned at the foot of the
stairs, but Anne Brown was getting
over her tears and now she turued on
mo in a temper.
"It's all your fault," she said. "I was
going to stay at home and get a little

broke in. "There'll be nothing to do
"I think you haven't grasped the
?niuation. Dai, ' 1 said icily. "There
will be plenty to do. There Isn't a
servant in the house!"
"No servants!" everybody cried at
once. The Mercer girls stopped gig
"Holy cats!" Max stopped In the
act of hanging up bis overcoat "Do
you mean-why. I can't shave myself I
I'll cut my bead off."
"You'll do more than that," I re
torted grimTy. "You will carry coal
and .tend Ares and empty ash pans,
and when you are not doing any of
those things there will be pots and
pans to wash and beds to make."
Then there was a row. We had
worked back to the den now, and I
stood in front of the fireplace and let
the storm beat around me, and tried
to look perfectly cold and indifferent,
and not to see Mr. Harbison's shocked
face. No wonder he thought them a
lot of savages, browbeating their host?
ess the way they did.
"Ifs a fool thing anyhow," Max
Reed wound up, "to celebrate the an
niversary of a divorce-especially-"
Here he caught Jim's eye and
stopped. But I had suddenly remem
bered. Bella down In the basement!
Could anything have been worse?
And of course she would have hys
teria and then turn on me and blame
me for lt all. It all came over me at
once and overwhelmed me, while
Anne was crying and saying she
wouldn't cook If she starved for it,
and Aunt Selina was taking off her
wrapB. I felt queer all over, and I sat
down suddenly. Mr. Harbison was
looking at me, and be brought me a
glass of wine.
"It won't be so bad as you fear,"
he said comfortingly. "There will be
no danger once we are vaccinated, and
many hands make light work. They
are pretty raw now, because the thing
ls new to them, but by morning they
will be reconciled."
"It isn't the work: It is something
entirely different," I said. And it was,
Bella and work could hardly be
spoken in the same breath.
If I had only turned her out as she
deserved to be, when she first came,
instead of allowing her to carry
through the wretched farce about see
ing Takahiro! Or if I had only run
to the basement the moment the
house was quarantined, and got her
out the area way or coal hole! And
nethlng to the Dcor.
now time was flying, and Aunt Selina
had me by the arm, and any moment I
expected Bella to pounce on us
through the doorway and the whole
situation to explode with a bang.
It was after eleven before they were
rational enough to discuss ways and
means, and, of course, the first thing
suggested was that we all adjourn be
low stairs and c'ean up after dinner.
I could have slain Max Reed for the
notion, and the Mercer girls for taking
"Of courser we will," they said in a
duet. "What a lark!" And they actu
ally began to pin up their dinner
gowns. It was Jim who stopped that
"Oh, look here, you people," he ob
jected, "I'm not going to let you do
that. We'll get some servants In to
morrow. I'll go down and put out the
lights. There will be enough clean
di6hes for breakfast"
It was lucky for me that this started
a new discussion then and there about
who would get the breakfast In the
midst of the excitement I slipped
away to carry the news to Bella. She
was where I had left her, and she had
made herself a cup of tea, and was
very much at home, which was
"Do you know," she said ominously,
"that you have been away for two
hours? And that I have gone through
agonies of nervousness for fear Jim
Wilson would come down and think
I came here to see him."
