A FORCED LEAD.
There we re only three people) In
the room besides the whist players:
the old gen'leman who sat in the cor
ner of the room and was always read
ing, and Julia McCullough and voucg
Stevens, who were in another corner,
half shieldei by the Japanese screen.
Of the card plavers one was old
Mr. McCulIough. to whom whist was
the busines- of life. A second was
old Mrs- McCulIough, who played
excellently, but never could be utterly
deaf to the claims of the outside
world. The third was Mr. Kkhraond,
a successfu. lawyer, something over
50, with closely-cut, iron-gray hair,
quick, keen eyes, a manner which
very likely had been nervous, but
was now on'.y incisive, and an utterly
absorbed a'tention to the matter in
hand. Teople said Richmond had
had a disappointment in love, which
had kept him a bachelor and perhaps
encouraged the habit of absorption
a fact which caused Julia McCulIough
and young Stevens to regard him with
deep and rt spectful sympathy. The
fourth player was old Mr. McCul
Iough" s pa -trier, and just at present
she groped under such a cloud of
disapproval that it would have been
a relief to 1 ave escaped notice alto
gether. Me was a silent, smooth.
unassertive, unmarried woman, whose
game Mr. McCulIough had trained.
trimmed a ad pruned in season and
out of season until, as a matter of
self-presert ation, she had learned to
play better than he.
But it was owing to her that Mr.
McCullougli now fidgeted in his chair
and glared at a nine-spot as if each
club on its surface were a weapon of
assassination. It was but 8 o'clock
in the evering, and she was playing
only till thi stage came to take her
to the train on which she was to
leave break up the game and leave.
No wonder Mr. McCulIough was
almost speechless with rage. No
wonder thst Mrs. McCulIough fatally
wandered, so that she mistook a
knave for t king and pulled in her
opponent's trick. Even Mr. Rich
mond, who scarcely knew how Miss
Selwyn loc ked. so rarely he raised
his eyes from the table, felt that her
conduct wts injurious.
"May I be permitted to inquire,
Charlotte." asked Mr. McCulIough
in an aw'ul voice, "since when a
knave has been advanced to the dis
tinction of taking a king of the same
"Gracious!"' admitted Mrs. Mc
CulIough, pushing the card to Miss
Selwyn, who was so crowded by the
universal disapproval that she re
ceived theia as a free gift.
"Of coui se it is impossible to be
even decently attentive in the midst
of such willful disturbance," re
marked M-. McCulIough.
"If it were not a case of illnes."
began Miss Selwyn, agologetically.
"People have no business to be
ill," snapped Mr. McCulIough.
Do you suppose. Susan will be able
to get there, too?" asked Mrs. Mc
CulIough. "I hope so," returned Miss Selwyn.
Come, come, Charlotte:" ex
claimed Mr. McCulIough: "for heav
en's sake, let us play while we can!"
Julia M Culiough and young Ste
vens were talking in low tones be
hind the screen.
"Did yoa really pin it tip?'1 asked
Julia, with apprehensive pleasure.
"I real y did," returned young
Stevens, "in the hall. I knew how
strained the situation would be to
night, and as it is my last evening I
wanted it to be peaceful. They
might havo asked one of us to take a

"Yes yoj would, you poor lamb, or
I would h ive taken your place and

One of tae hotel servants came to
the door tho stage was leaving.
Miss Selwyn rose, looking ready to
cry. The cards had just been dealt
I am v:ry sorry." she said.
"Sorry!" growled Mr. McCulIough;
"we may 1 ave to play with a dummy!"
"There isn't a soul in the house
that can play," sighed Mrs. McCul
Iough. Richmond rose to go with
Miss Selwyn to the door.
He put her in the carriage and re
turned. Not a word had been spoken.
Ho walked, restlessly to a bookcase
and read the titles. The old man in
the cornel buried himself deeper in
his pages: the young girl and her
companion became more involved in
winding worsted. Mrs. McCulIough
sorted her hand mechanically. Mr.
McCulIough drummed on the table
and lookcyl ready to burst with rage.
It was as if nature were preparing
lor a cataclysm.
Suddenly they all, except the
reader, locked up A woman stood
in the doorway fine-looking, though
not a young woman. Her gray hair
rose Rtra'.ght from her handsome
forehead; her clear complexion was
a little fl ished. but she spoke with
"I saw i-he notice pinned up in the
hall," she Mid. "I am a good whist
player. Would you like to have me
make up '.he hand?" "
Young iitevhens rose with a side
glance at Julia, who looked a little

Old Mr. McCu.lough. doubtfully.

swift glance that took in all the
occupants of the room; "the notice
saying that there were three whist
players in the east card-room who
wanted a fourth at a quarter past
eight. Onlv good players need
Richmond glanced at the young
man with a certain severity, behind
which was a gleam of amusement,
and came toward the card table.
"1" began young Stevens; but it
was old Mrs. McCollough who settled
"Well." she interrupted, "do come
and sit down. I'm sure I don't know
how you got here, but we're glad
enough to see you. I'll play with
Mr. McCulIough because I am used
to him. You can plav with my part
"We're wasting a lot of precious
time, said Mr. McCulIough. and the
handsome woman came forward from
the doorway and picked up the cards
that lay at he." place.
Richmond seated himself opposite,
and for ten minutes not a word was
spo'tn. Mie did play well one of
those intelligent, pliable games which
show science, memory and compre
hension. Richmond was delighted
with her. If at a critical point he
planned a brilliant stroke, she caught
his intention instantly and co-oj er
ated. He was not curious about her
personally; he had barely looked at
her: she was simply his skillful com
rade. It was her deal, and as she
jiicked up the cards she shu3!ed them
once. I.icumonu s eyes we;e on her
fingers, and he started a little. She
mixed the cards by an odd bit of
manipulation. He had never seen
but one other person do it. The next
time he watched her; then he glanced
from her fingers to her face in sudden,
sharp inquiry. Her eyes were on bis;
they wore a lo k that might have
been triumph. The game went on.
The low tones of the young people
were almost whispers.
"If you had that ace you were a
long time playing it, Charlotte," said
Mr. McCulIough. at the endof a hand.
"One doesn't win by being in a
hurry," she answered, easily.
"No," said the stranger, speaking
for almost the first time, "one does
The words were simple, but to
Richmond's ear they were emphatic
He looked at her with a certain air
of suspense, and again she met hi9
look. Another hand was played.
"You did it that time." said Rich
mond, at the end of it, as he scored
"Yes,"said she.smiling, "I thought
it was time I took matters into my
He turned a little pale, and dealt
the cards with his eyes on her face.
The evening slipped on; the game
as close and interesting.
"That play of yours was an unusual
one," said Richmond, "but success
ful." "Yes," she answered, slowly; "I
broke all the rules to do it It was a
forced lead, but there seemed nothing
else to da"
There were bright red spots in her
checks ami she held her handsome
head very high as she spoke. He
laid down the cards as if to stop
"It saved the game." he said con
cisely, as he picked them up again.
"1 thought you had that queen,
Charlotte." said Mr. McCulIough in
ireful reproach, "from the way you
It is dangerous to diaw infer
ences," said Richmond quickly, look
ing across the table.
"Not usually," she answered light
ly, "if one knows one's partner."
At 1 1 o'clock Richmond, instead
of taking up the hand she had just
dealt him, put both his arms on the
table and leaned across it Mrs. Mc
CulIough looked as if the akies would
fall, and Mr. McCulIough said:
"Come! Come!" Richmond heeded
neither or them.
Will you tell me why yoa played
as you did?" he asked with sudden
j sternness. His partner looked at
. him and her eyes fell for a moment
j Then, with her first full composure,
' she answered:
j "It has taken me a long time to
j return your lead: but I found, soon
i enough, that it is from what is mv
strongest suit as welL"
Come. come!"' said Mr. Mc
CulIough: "a great deal of talk
about a hand that is past and gone,
rick up your cards, man!"
Instead of doing so Richmond stood
up. The young people stopped talk
ing, and even the reading old man
laid down hi- book.
"Is your name still Frances Effing
ham!" he asked.
"Yes," she said, rising too.
"Have you come back to me!"
"Yes." she aid again.
"I have waited a long time," he
"Yes." There was a pause.
" ill you come with me into
parlor across the hall and let
Epeak to you?"
She bowed, and tossing down
cards she passed out of the room and
he followed her.
If Mrs. McCulIough had ever al
lowed profanity in her presence she
might have had to listen to it then.
For several moments Mr. McCul
Iough found nothing appropriate ia
