there what uso to say all this! Only
when I onco begin to talk of Musctto

"Tint was n mrtnotable ovctilng.
When the studio wm arranged to her
satisfaction kIio mucin mo somo tea

room and I took liar through tho little
village to try and tind lodgings. Of
courxc, Jasper 'mil I, having decided
M. Di'laporto wasn man, had expected
him to rough It like the rest of us. I
could not let her stay In Trenewlyn
Itself, but took her up tho hillside to a
arinliotisc, where I felt certain they
would accommodate her. Hlio was In
raptures with the plare, and I agreed
with her that It was it paradise, as Indeed
it seemed to inc on that August
night. I remumlk'r tho moon shining
oter the hay, the fleet of boats standing
out to sea, the lights from tho
town and villages stuttered along the
const, or amidst the sloping hills. I
did not wonder she was charmed) we
all havo felt that charm hero, and It
doesn't lessen with timet wo all havo
acknowledged that also.
"Hut I must hurry on. When
heard of tho new artist's sex ho
was rather put out. I could notseo

was out own. M might stand for
Mary, or llngdnler., or Marietta, Just
as well as for Maurlco or Mnlcom or
Mortimer. However, when he came
dort'n and taw M, Dolnporte here, I
heard no more about tho disadvantages
of sex, She waa essentially a
woman for compnulonshlp, cultured,
brtlllnut, artist to her finger-tips, yet
w Ith all her beauty nnd fascination
holding a certain proud rcscrvo between
herself nnd ourselves, marking
a line we dare not otcrstep. At the

about her than wo did on that first
evening. I optned that sho was a
widow, but no hint, how over skillful,
no trap, however baited, could forco

very hnrd. often putting mo to shame,
buUktlll sho would not lot mo see tho
picture, always skillfully turning tho
easel so that tho ennvas was hidden
whenever Jasper or myself entered
the studio. Wo were never permitted
to do so In working hours, but when
daylight faded, and tho well-known
little was set out, we often
dtopped in for a rup of tea and a chat.
It was all so pleasant, so homelike.

The usual gnyety and brightness of his

"I well, It's no good to dwell on It

I fell madly in love with her. Who
could help it? I bet any of you fellows

was not very often. I'm stiro I used to

she was just tho ssmo always: calm,
friendly, gracious, absorbed In her
work, and to nil nppcaranccs unconscious
of what mischief her presence
liiid wrought. As tho third month
drew near to Its end I grew desperate.
I thought sho avoided me; sho novcr

confess I had a great curiosity to seo

"At last ono day I walked down ta
the studio. I knocked at tho door.
Thero wns no answer. I turned tho
handle nnd entered. In tho full light
of tho sunset, as It streamed through
the window, stood tie easel, covered

on the threshold, waj tho picture, I
stood tlicru too amazed to speak or

Suddenly I became nwaro of
a sound In tho stillness tho low,
stifled sobbing of a woman. I saw her
then, thrown face downwards on the
couch at tho farthest end of tho room,
her face burled tn tho cushions, her
whole frame trembling and convulsed
with a passion ofgrlef. 'Oh, Maurice!'
she sobbed, nnd then again only that
name 'Mnuricc! Maurlcel Maurice!
"I closed the door softly, and wont
away. There seemed to me something
sacred In this grief. I I could noi Intrude

momentary disappointment. I should
