fell In love with her In a moment.
Then I pulled wires until I winked u

to cnll upon her, we talked books and
music. The company's going out of
town shortly, so I lushed n proposal.
"And then 7" prompted .lackson. as i
, tbo other's bead again sought the '
shelter of his arms.
"And then," lepeated Drew, with tin
accent like u sob, "she told me of her
marriage. Shu passes for nn unmar
ried woman on tbe stuge, anil I. like
an idiot, never thought that in private
llfo things might he different. I don't
know her married name, she wouldn't
tell me, because she says sbn loved
ilier husband when she married him;
3io's u gooil man and still loves her,
and she wouldn't dream of getting a
dlvorco from blm, though she admits
that sho loves me better. We're made
for each other, Jackson, and It was a
cursed trick of fate to give her to the
other man first, or to make her so
good tbat she won't let blm go."
Jackson's strong hand was pressed
comfortingly on bis friend's shoulder.
"Well," bo said, his sensible, matter
of fact manner calming tbe other llko
a sedative. "I'm sorry for tbo hus

of any spirit he won't wijut to hold a
woman who doesn't love blm any
longer, though God! but It's tough
on him, Isn't If, If be really Is a do

"She says tbat If he knew he'd let
her go at once, just because bo's so
unselfish and loves her so dearly," In
terrupted Jackson, "hut for that rea
son, and because, he's always been so
good to her. she can't bear to tell
him. So everybody's got to suffer, so
far ns I sou, since theie must bo a

Jackson, rising, "though the enrds

Drew stood up to'shako bands and
