soundlessly under the stress of her

fell from her quivering lips.

There came a tensing of the relaxed

that the girl could look at ber ques

said simply, "if you really want It."

Aggie spoke her mind with frank

creature before her.

The accusation was cut short by the

For a moment Mary lost her poise.
Her voice rose in a flare of rage.
"You are! You are!"
The craven snirit of the eirl could
struggle no more. She conld Ely sit
iu'a huddled, shaking heap of dread.
Mary soon mastered her to such an
extent that when she spoke again, as
if in self communion, her words came
quietly, yet with overtones of a su
"She did it!" Then after a little she
addressed the girl with a certain won-1
deiing before this mystery of horror.

"But they caught you later. Why

"I was afraid." came the answer
from the shuddering girl. "I told them

"You cried and lied, and they let you

broke in a tearless sob. The color had
gone out of her face, and she stood

Aggie took advantage of the pause.
Her voice was acid. "Some people are
sneaks Just sneaks!"
Somehow the speech was welcome
to the girl, gare her a touch of cour
age sufficient for cowardly protesta
tions. It was more like -the abuse that
was familiar to her.,' A gush of tears
"I'll never forgive myself, never!"
"Oh, yes, yon will." Mary said
malevolently. "People forgive them
selves pretty easily. Stop crying. No
body is going to hurt you." She thrust
the money again toward the girl and
crowded it into the half reluctant, half
greedy band. "Take it. and get out."
The contempt in her voice rang still
sharper. "Go, before I change my

hand she went forth swiftly, stumbling
a little in her haste, fearful lest at the
last moment the woman she had so
wronged should change in mood and
take back the money.
Freed from the miasma of that pres
ence, Mary remained motionless for a
long minite. then sighed from ber tor
"A girl I didn't know." she said be
wilderedly, "perhaps bad never spoken
to who smashed my life like that!

from headquarters. He didn't
put a name to it, but I'm on."
It was Garson speaking. Mary regard
ed him inquiringly, and he continued,
putting the fact with a certain brutal
bluntness after the habit of bis class.
"I guess you'll have to quit seeing
young Gilder. The bulls are wise. His
father has made a holler."
"Don't let that worry you, Joe." she
said tranquilly. She allowed' a few

der this morning." There came a
squeal of amazement from Aggie, a
start of incredulity from Garson.
"Yes," Mary repeated evenly. "I was
married to him this morning. That
was my important engagement, she
added with a smile toward Aggie.
Aggie sat erect, her baby face alive
with worldly glee.
"Oh, gee. what luck!" she exclaim
ed noisily. "Why. he's a king fish, he
is. Gc-e, tut I'm glad yon landed him!"
"Thank you," Mary said with a smile
that was the result of her sense of hu
mor rather than from any tenderness.
It was then that Garson spoke. He
put a question of vital aignificance.
"Do you love him 7
The question caught Mary all nn pre
pared, but she retained her self con
trol sufficiently to make her answer in
a voice that to the ordinary ear would
have revealed uo least tremor.
"No." she said. She offered no ex
planation, no excuse; merely stated the
fact in all Its finality.
"Then you won't leave nsT' Garson
asked. "We're going on as we were
before?" The hint of dejection In his
manner had vanished. "And yon won't
live with him?"
"Live with him?" Mary exclaimed
emphatically. "Certainly not!"
Garson was still patient in bis deter
mination to apprehend jnst what bad
come to pass.
"Does he understand the arrange
ment?" was his question.
"No. not yet," Mary admitted with
out sign of embarrassment.
Garson was intently considering an
other phase of the situation, one sug
gested perhaps out of bis own deeper

Garson spoke very softly, but with
an intensity that left no donbt aa to
the honesty of bis pnrpose.
"I'd ay throw op the whole came

There fell a tense silence. It was
broken by Mary.
"I married him to get even with his
father." she said. ; "That's alt there Is

"Just one!" Dick pleaded.
"No," the bride replied with deter

was near a groan.

"Oh. sure," Aggie replied grimly, on
her way to the door.
"Mr. Griggs." Pannie announced.
There was a smile on the face of the
maid., which was explained a minute
later, when the visitor was shown into
the drawing room, for his presence
was of an elegance so extraordinary
as to attract attention anywhere and
mjjth as well from ribald observers.
Meantime Garson bad explained to
"It's English Eddie. Tou met him

"Nothing without my consent," Mary
"Oh. no, no, sure not!'' Garson
Further discussion was cut short by
the appearance of English Eddie him

Mary made no effort to restrain the

of-the canons of good taste, except
in fhe aggregate. From spats to hat.

the ensemble was flamboyant. And
the man's manners precisely harmoniz

effect was emphasized and, rendered
bizarre. Garson took oje ornazed look
and then rocked with laughter.
Griggs regarded his former associate
reproachfully for a momenf. and then
grinned lu frank sympathy.
"Fronj your costume' Mary sug

purely a social call. Is it?"
"Well, not exactly," Griggs answered
with a, smile.
"So I fancied." his hostess replied.
"So, sit down, please, and tell us all
English Eddie wasted no time.
"Now, look here." he said rapidly,
"I've got the greatest "game in the

Griggs went on with his account
"About a month ago the things I rws
