"That will be about all for me," said
Violet. "I don't feel strong enough
tonight to stand any more of your

With a resentful grunt Mr. Bross
clamped a warm, moist band round the
plump arm of his charmer and with
masterful address propelled her from
the curb in front of the theater, where
the little party hnd paused, to the
northwest corner of Broadway. P.
Sybarite, moving instinctively to fol
low, leaped back to the sidewalk bare
ly In time to save bis toes a crushing
beneath tbe tires of a hurtling taxi
cab. He smiled a furtive apology at Mol
ly Lessing. who had demonstrated
greater discretion, and she returned
tbe smile in the friendliest manner.
His bend was buzzing, and her eyes
were kind. Neither spoke, but for an
instant he experienced a breathless
sense of sympathetic Isolation wlt'j
her. there on that crowded corner.
The wonder aud the romance of the
piny were still warm and vital in his
imagination, infusing his thoughts
with a roseate glamor of unreality
wherein all things were possible.
For three hours he had forgotten his
lowly world, had lived on the high
peaks of romance, breathing only tbelr
n.re atmosphere that never was on
land or sea.
riflicu!t he found It now to divest
I his thoughts of that entbrallment to
d-scend to cold and sober reality, to
remember he was a clerk, his compan
ion a shopgirl, rather than a prince
disguised as Calender esqnlring a prin
cess dedicated to fatal enchantment
that "Kismet" was a quaint fallacy,
one with that whimsical conceit of ori
ent fatalism which assigns to each
mid every man his day of days, where

on his withdrawal. Tbe man entering
the dooryard had cornered the girl In

once Insistent, determined and thor
oughly angry, while she exhibited per

The other started as if slapped and
strode In to the stoop. "Do you know

wrathfully, towering over P. Sybarite,
momentarily forgetful of tbe girl.
Stepping aside, as if in alarm, she
moved behind the fellow and darted
through the gate.
