But Mildred was fctill dlseoncslate.
Suddenly she was struck by a new
thought and her face brightened.
"Conny, you are to sit next to Mr.
Gaylord tonight at dinner, and I wish
you would manage to tell him, sort of

thoughtfully and mused. "How de-

were less restricted."
She was a charitable little soul, but
aloud she said, seriously: "Mllly, I

tbe long windows opening onto the
porch, and there were no discontented
lines in her bright, animated face
Suddeny there was a rush of little
feet, a breathless, bubbling laugh,
and Gerald turned to see a whirl of

followed by a small fox terrier, bark

brought to an abrupt end outside the

and said the was so very glad she had
found an old friend among her guests.
The rest of that evening was like a
bad dream to Mildred. It seemed that
the young man had met Betty several
years ago in Virginia while there on
a shooting trip, and that he had gone
down again, not long afterward, but
had been able to find no trace of her.
But the bitterest drop in poor Mil
dred's cup came when she saw them
go down toward the shining, moon
flooded river. As they passed the
shadowed corner of the porch, where
she had gone for a few moments to
conquer the angry tears that threat
ened to overwhelm 'er, she heard
. "Dear, brave little milliner. How
