stantin LogotheU. a weahhy Oreek fitaan
cifir. Her Intimate friend was Countess
JLeveo, known as Lady Maud, whose bus
band had been killed by a bomb In St.
Petersburg", and Lady Maud's moot iuti
ruate friend was Kufus Van Torp. an
American, who had been a cowboy In
early life, but had become one of the
richest men In the worlfi. Van Torp was
In love with Margaret, and rushed to
London as soon as he heard of her be
trothal. He offered Lady Maud 96,000.000
for her pet charity if she would aid him
la winning- the singer from Logothett.
CHAPTER III (Continued.)
The dream-voice was silent as soon
as she opened her eyes, but she had
not been awake lone without realiz
ing that she wished very much to see
LogotheU at once, and was profoundly
thankful that she had torn up her let
ter to Lady Maud. She was not pre
pared to admit, even now, that Kon
stantin was the ideal she should have
chosen for a husband, and whom she
had been describing from imagination
when she had suddenly stopped writ
ing. But. on the other hand, the mere j
thought that he had perhaps been i
amusing himself in the society of an
other woman all yesterday afternoon
made her so angry that she took
refuge In trying to believe that he had
spoken the truth and that she had
really been mistaken about the voice.
It was all very well to talk about
learning Tartar! How could she be
sure that It was not modern Greek, or
Turkish? She could not have known
the difference. Was it so very unlikely
that some charming compatriot of his
should have come from Constantino
ple to spend a few weeks in Paris?
She remembered the mysterious house
In the Boulevard Pereire where he
lived, the beautiful upper hall where
the statue of Aphrodite stood, the
doors that would not open like other
doors, the strangely-disturbing en
caustic painting of Cleopatra in the
drawing room many things which she
Besides, snpposing that the language
was really Tartar were there not
Russians who spoke it? She thought
there must be, because she had a
vague idea that all Russian were
more or less Tartars. There was a
proverb about it. Moreover, to the
English as well as to the French, Rus
sians represent romance and wicked
ness. She would not go to the telephone
herself, but she sent a message to Lo
gotheU, and he came out in the cool
time of the afternoon. She thought
he had never looked so handsome and
so lltUe exotic since she had known
He was received by Mrs. Rushmore
and Margaret together, and he took
noticeable pains to make himself
agreeable to the mistress of the house.
At first Margaret was pleased at this;
but when she saw that he was doing
his best to keep Mrs. Rushmore from
leaving the room, as she probably
would have done, Margaret did not
like it. She was dying to ask him
questions about his lesson in Tartar,
and especially about his teacher, and
she probably meant to cast her in
quiries in such a form as would make
it preferable to examine him alone
rather than before Mrs. Rushmore;
but he talked on and on, only pausing
an instant for the good lady's expres
sions of interest or approval.
He was teling her what a prime
minister had told an ambassador
about the pope, when Margaret rose
"I'm awfully sorry," she said to Mrs.
Rushmore. by way of apology, "but I
really must have a little air. I've not
been out of the house all day."
Mrs. Rushmore understood, and was
not hurt, though 6he was sorry not to
hear more. The "dear child" should
go out, by all means. Would Mons.
Logotheti stay to dinner? No? She
was sorry. She had forgotten that
she had a letter to write in time for
the afternoon post. So she went off
and left the two together. ,
Margaret led the way out upon the
lawn, and they sat down on garden
chairs under a big elm tree. She said
nothing while she settled herself very
deliberately, avoiding her . compan
ion's eyes till she was quite ready, and
then she suddenly looked at him with
a sort of blank stare that would
have disconcerted any one less su
perlatively self-possessed than he was.
It was most distinctly Mme. de Cor
dova, the offended prima donna, that
spoke at last, and not Miss Margaret
Donne, the "nice English girl."
"What in the worM has got into
you?" she inquired in a chilly tone.
He opened his almond-shaped eyes
a little wider with an excellent af
fectation of astonishment at her words
"Have I done anything you don't
like?" he asked in a tone of anxiety
OF THE VIRTUE OF
Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Compound
What is the use of procrastinating in the face of such
evidence as the following letters represent? If you are a
sick woman or know one who is, what sensible reason have
you for not giving Lydia E. Pinkham's Vegetable Com
pound a trial ? For 30 years we have been publishing such
testimonial letters as these thousands of them they are

Margaret looked at him a moment
longer, and then turned her head
away in silence, as if scorning to an
swer such a silly, question. The look
of surprise disappeared from his face,
and he became very gloomy and
thoughtful but said nothing more.
Possibly he had brought about exactly
what he wished, and was satisfied to
await the inevitable result. It came
"I don't understand you at all."
Margaret said less icily, hut with the

sorry that he could do nothing to ap
pease her, but this only made her feel
more injured. She made an effort to

No one can describe the tone of in
dignant contempt in which a thorough

thought of Jealousy with a single
word; a man must have heard it to
remember what it is like, and most
men have. Logotheti knew it well,
