so happy with my luiby boy, so busy
getting strong and well so that I
might really i.ire for htm properly,
that nothing elso seemed to affect
Then one day I suddenly woke up
to tho fact that Nell was out a great
deal; thut In tin last month he had
not only taken up the old habit of
staying at his club, but that he was
remaining away later, and moro of
ten than ho ever had befotc
lie had been so devoted In tho
months hforo baby came, so tender
and thoughtful of mo In tho few
weeks afturward, that I had been
lulled Into forgetfulncss of things
that had gnno' before.
It a at a dinner given by
Itlaneho Orton, that my eyes wcro
opened. Just a small dinner to ft
few. Hits was still In soft grays nnd
lovonderu. although her husband had
been dead a year. They were be
coming, Iwirrnlpo Morton said, and
that was the reason she woro them
I got a very ex-penslvo and beauti
ful gown I had the samo feeling I
always hail had about looking my
best before, Hlanche Orton, even
though I had given her very little
thought the past tew montlii (ono
reason probably being thnt lxirralno
Morton, who usually brought me all
the gossip, had been out of town nn
a visit l. I rested all day long n
tribute I never thought of paying n
dinner ncfore baby came. And I was
sat'sfleil that 1 never had looked
better. Nell's eves showed ho was
pieced and he said several flatter
ing things, making mn feel still more
assured thnt I should not be entire
ly overshadowed by our hostess.
Thero woro only eight at the table.
As It l.sul used to be, Nell was next
to Mrs. orton. It seemed to me that
.the had t.iki n on hew fasclnntlotts,
new attractions. Surely no grief be
cause of her widowhood, was ovl
dent on her race; it woro a moro
vivacious look than before tho trnge
dy. In fact, t had seen her but once
or twice since Hint. Sho too had
been away, and I Jiad remained so

were gay. attractive people, and I
knew I talked better than usual
until I saw Lorraine gazing t Nell
with such a peculiar look In her
eyes that my attention was at
tracted. I saw at onco ho was drinking too
much. Then. too. hi wns leaning
toward Hlanche, and they seemed to
be arguing about nimcthlng sorncv
thing disagreeable, It seemed to me.
I felt a touch of uneasiness. Huch
argument, tho expression on their
faces, showed a degroo of Intimacy
not compatible with the courtesy due
a hostess; neither did It give ono
the Imptcsslon of a flirtation.
1 drooped a little. What could
they be talking about In that earn
ost, confidential way? I had really
enjoyed my evening up to thn time
I caught Iorralnu looking at Nell. It
had beiin so long slnco I had been

I mndo up my mind to question
Nell tho moment we were alone.
Why I should have thought ho would

becauso of baby's coming. I can't
explain; but, someway, I did.
Nell and I had rarely talked of
anything navi the baby slnco ho
came, r had not realized It until
then. It camo to mo suddenly that
ho was talking to her. Hlanche Or
ton, ahout his business. And that
ho looked (lueerty worn out and
nervous compared to what ho had
rfhen we left home.
I wntild urge him to go away for a
vacation. Not rUnne; baby and I
would go along. We would find some
quiet place where ho could rest.
Itefore wo rose rrom the table ho

Hut. someway, what I had seen had

"After n career of 17 years as a

Molloch of Chicago, to a W orld ro

Is tilth perhaps because all people
