When Irving 1'eck came to Illldrefi
aad joined our social circle my fostef
toother had just died and left me tha
care of her daughter Cynthia. elgM
"Margaret," said our mother the da
before she died, "you know what t
Lave done for you?"
"Indeed I do." I replied.
"Now Is your opportunity t make 0
return. Cynthia has no kith or kin O
rely on. Without your care I knot?
Hot what will become of her. PromUa
me that you will be a mother to her."
"To do that you must not har ?fy
dreu of your own. I know a woinaaf
nature. Ve will never permit auy
child's interest to stand lu the way of
our own. Promise me that you will
not marry until Cynthia conies of age.
I was silent.
"At least until she has married,"
Again I made no reply.
"Will you not promise me this?"
"I promise you that I will not marry
till Cynthia has a love of her own un
til she is engaged.
My foster mother sighed and turned
away. She knew she had no right to
ask such a sacrifice. "What I had prom
ised was equivalent almost to not mar
rying at all. Eight or nme years at
least must pass before Cynthia -would
lore, and she might never love at all.
Had I not met Irving Peck I -would
have promised my aunt all she Msked
without hesitation. I hal only known
him a little while, but it was long
enough to tell me that Ii had met my
fate. The truest love, to my thinking.
Is that which comes upon both the
imyj and the woman from the moment
they meet. Irving Feck and I each
recognized in the other a mate, and a
month after my foster mother's death
he asked me to be' his wife. When I
told him of my promise he did not ask
me to break it; indeed, he told me that
if I did he would not respect me. He
said that he would marry no other wo
man, and if Cynthia stood always in
our way he would twver marry. We
did not think it best that we should
remain near each other, and Irving
I neither saw nor heard from him
till Cynthia was seveuteem; then he
wrote me that since she was of u iikit
riageable age we miht meet again. I
replied that Cynthbi promisHl to be a
coquette, and tln'S-e would lw littk
hope of her choosing a hueband. I
continued after this to hear from him
occasionally, but could give him no
hope. At nineteen Cynthia bed flirted
with every young man in tbt' village,
and. like Alexander, there nvere no
more conquests for her to make. At
this time a friend in Caldwell invited
her to a visit, aud Cynthia gkidly ac
cepted the Invitation. I wmte Irving
while she was away that he might
conn to see inc. The truth Is, Cynthia
was so full of witchery and "ivithal was
so much younger than I that 1 featvd
to have him come while sl was at
home. I was disappointed to learn
from him that a special provt would
prevent his coming till alour.. the time
Cynthia would return.
When Cynthia was fifteen she had
discovered the secret of my '.promise.
We slept together, a3l I talketl in my
sleep. 1 had never told her, fcariug
that she might feel constrained, to mar
ry on my account. 3iut I did not know
her. Realizing thji I looked to each
of her love affairs to release jne..sho
seemed to take u malicious pleasure lu
tantalizing me. 1 wrote Irving ot this
and I should not have done so, for it
made him fur ions.
Oue morning 1 received a letteffroui
Cynthia, and, to tuy great delight. It
told me that she had met a man v?hom
she fuucieil she couAl love. She had
not thought to give me his name, but
this was of little consequence to me.
for I would, not knoiv him. Her next
letter, written two weeks later, an
nounced hri'r engagement, which meant
that at last I was free. Before finish
ing reading her let ter I threw it down
and took up my pen to write Jrvlng
announcing the good news; but, turn
ing to the letter again for the name of
Cynthia's fiance, the room swam, and
I fell in a swoon. The mime was lYv
What strange-eolncldneehad brought
these two together? Did Cynthia
know that hen lover had been my lov

the girl who had stood between us?
Cynthia could not know the truth un
less he told her. Irvlre might and
might not know her. He- had not seen
her before since she -was a little girl,
but he must surely Leow her by naxue.
Another week passed, and nothing
from Irving. Then one morning a car
