The Argus Daily Short Story
Planning for a Divorce.
Copyrighted. 1910, by
I was a young law student twenty
three years old. studying in the office
of Marbury & Slade. Mr. Marbury
was au old friend of my father's, and
I think be was quite fond of me. One
day he sent for me to come into bis
private office, and I found him atone
"Frank," he said, "I can give you a
chance to make $000."
Now. I was scraping along finan
cially, trying to make ends meet till I
could get my profession, and $500
would be a great lift for me.
"How?" I asked eagerly.
"By taking a wife."
My delight vanished as quickly as
it hud come.
"There will be nothing to prevent
your getting a divorce In time," be
added, noticing my discomfiture.
"I don't think I would like to be
tied up in such a matter at all. What
does it mean?"
' "It means that a client of ours, a
I girl of twenty-one, has inherited a for
i tune conditional upon her being mar
j rled. Of course there is a time limit,
' and that rime expires tomorrow at 12
; o'clock noon. The young lady. Miss
j Irene Townsend, needs a man to mar
! ry her and. In consideration of an
amount paid elm. to leave her alone
rorever afterward. It wouldn't do to
agree upen a divorce, because In that
case I doubt If the marriage would be
legal, but after the property Is turned
over to the heir I see no reason why
one should not he obtained."
I thought awhile. There was a
spice of romance In the matter that
appealed to niy youthful Imagination.
-What kind of a looking thing Is
she?" I asked.
On that score, my boy, yon needn't
trouble yonraelf. She ! a vary pretty
woman and. moreover, of excellent
birth and breeding, ef which she la
proud. She Is the ward of an uncle
who, I think. Intends that she shall
eventually marry airne great catch,

bury, and he told me the marriage
would take place at the office the next
day about 10 o'clock. Before going to
my wedding I put on a frock coat and
stuck a flower In my buttonhole; but,
thinking this would appear as though
I considered the affair a real wedding,
I changed to my business suit and
threw away the flower.
At 10 o'clock sharp I received a sum
mons to go to Mr. Marbury's office. I
found there besides Mr. Marbury a
man in clerical dress, an aristocratic
looking gentleman, very stiff and re
served, who didn't deign to look at
me. and my bride. It was all right
for the others to treat the matter as
a mere legal form, but the bride and
bridegroom gave each other a quick
look. I defy any man upon entering
Into such an arrangement to avoid be
ginning at once to play a game of
hearts. At any rate, I did, and, al
ways having found Indifference to be
the most powerful force to move a wo
man, I refrained from looking at Mlaa
Townsend after the first glance. I
cast my eye perfunctorily over the pa
pers I was required to aign and, draw--Ing
my pen through the words "five
hundred dollara, wrote "one."
"What do yon mean by that, air?"
snarled the elderly gentleman.
"I have decided, somewhat late per
haps, that to accept jmoney for such a
service wonld demean me. I shall be
happy to serve the young lady, but
not for pay."" -
I was obliged to stand a good deal
of abuse from the elderly gentleman.
In which his ward took no part. But
I remained firm, told them that there
was still nearly two hoars remaining
In which to find a substitute, and
since the person was to be simply a
dummy it didn't matter who he was.
provided he waa not already married.
I also said- that tha one dollar paid me
made the marriage a matter of-bargain.
There were reasons why a man
who bad been recommended as one to
be railed on should be chosen. So i
after considerable discussion and a
side conference between Mr. Marbury '
and the ancle it wrs decided to ac- '
cept my conditions. Standing before
the clergyman. Miss Townsend and I
were made legal man and wife.
Mlas Townsend was apparently well

husband and that he w
with the manner in w
quitted myself. Without another word
to any one, without a glance at my
wife, I went out of the room and,
seating myself at my desk, dived again
Into my law books.
A year passed, at the end of which
I received a letter from my wife. It
began "Dear Sir" and ended "Yours
truly." It said that In the matter of
our bargain marriage she had placed
herself in the' hands of other, since
she knew nothing of law or 1
ment of It, with a view to h. .1?
an estate. She was now in po.'o.-lon
of her property and was of age. She
Intended to manage the rest of the
matter connecting her with me her
self. There was now nothing in the
way of getting the divorce, and she
would be pleased to see me with re
gard to the obtaining of a decree.
Above all things, she desired to work
In harmony with me, since she had
been Informed that the matter could
be thus far more satisfactorily han
dled. From what little she had seen
of me she felt assured that I was a
gentleman and would not qfand In her
way In becoming a free woman.
However we define love. Its begin
ning ia Indefinable. A man, fancy
free, may propose to a girl who Is
fancy free on the ground that she Is
not displeasing to him and their mar
riage will be an advantage. If she Is
accepted his feelings will go out to her
as naturally as the tendrils of a vine
and hers will advance to meet them.
I attribute to this fact my coming to
love the girl I had married, and I rea
soned that If she had been at the time
of our marriage and bad remained
fancy free It was quite possible that
something more than an ordinary In
terest in me might have been growing
up in her. But I realized that our
parts were reversed. I must be court
ed; she must do the courting. Any
Indication that I hojed to make our
marriage a real one would be fatal to
hopes I might have of doing so.
I replied to her letter that she was
at liberty to take any steps her law
yers might advise to secure a decree.
All I asked was that I might be put to
aa little inconvenience as possible, for
my time waa taken up In preparing
for my examination for admission to
the bar. I did not refer to her suggea
tion for a meeting.
She replied that, considering tha
fact that she was under an obligation
to me for a favor, she desired an op
portunity of thanking me personally
therefor and on no aceouut would she
take steps for the divorce without my
approval of the plan to be adopted. To
hit upon a plan to which I would give
my willing assent would require au
So I called to see her. One thing I
noticed especially. She was dressed
in a very becoming costume. Since I
could not make myself look beautiful,
whatever I might wear, I concluded to
put on something besides clothes,
something that finds great favor with
women. I displayed all the deference
I could assume.
She could not conceal from me the
fact that I stood in the position of
something more than a mere legal
dummy. Nevertheless she tried to.
She outlined several plans her lawyers
had sketched out for her by which the
divorce might Le obtained, but I ob
jected to all of them on the ground
that they might reflect upon her. I
Insisted upon assuming all the obloquy
myself. But when It came to polntins
out exactly how I was to do this I
failed. I knew enough law to suggest
the different methods that might be
used, but I had not been studying my
profession for the purpose of enabling
a woman to aivorce me, especially one
from whom I had no desire to bo di-
voreed. The consequence was that
