The glow 01 the electric light fell
softly 1pon the rich tapestries, the elo

of a young man, who, iml slippers and

Tlhe man was scarcely more than a
youth and his smooth shaven face was
free of lines of trouble or of care. But
in his quiet eyes a certain sadness
slumbered as t.hough real happiness,
real Conltenitmnt were not his.
Presently a woman, robed in an
evening gowil of pale blue satin, push-i
ed aside the portiere atid, seeing him,
paused smiling. Her hair fell over her
shoulders like a golden cataract tuim
bling into a blue sea, and her eyes were
like the skies of Juue--peacefully blue
and tender. Jewels sparkled at her
throat, and on her fingers and a pink
tiush brightened her cheeks, like the
earth is brightened by the first pink
rose the suni holds u1p through the lewy
mist of dawii.
The yotlng l i mai did not move; he
didl not glance ip from his paper, al

turning his eyeu back to his paper.
The woman removed hier arms from
his siob ilers a nd t stood quite still and
erect, a thini and tinger toying with
a lock of his hair and wistfultness
ereeping into her eyes.

a window and azed out at the stars,
while the man turned his paper over

Ouce or twice tle woman turned her
head and glanced at the man, but she
did not spe'ak and be did not look ip.
Then she pushed a footstool to the side
of his Chtair' aind sat downyl 111011 it, let
ting hier elbow rest upon his knee and
gazinig at tle coals ini the grate.
l'Iease put 'dowU your paper, dear,'
she sani. " I want to talk to you."
The paper dropped from the naii's
fingers and for a mloielit le gazed inl
silene at the woman's hair that glowed
like a grobten crown in the bright glare
of thet elctrcie h ghit . Ju tst the suig
igestionii o a frown stole across his lace
and he s ighied softly.

When her husband entered, Agnes
gaveit a startled cry.

"Raymond, dear, what has happenedt?"
ills face was ashen; his eyes were
dull and listless; his hands were trem

and covered his face with his hands,

that will be to the tired toilers who cai
