effect almost of a blow.

"I shall think of you," she sighed,
"as working on in this splendid pro

cushion, turned toward him, the pale
orchids trembling on her bosom-she

had begun to sigh its languorous meas
"Place?" she queried. "Do you think
you had no place there? Is it possible
that you do not understand that your
going has left-a void?"
He looked at her suddenly, and her
eyes fell. Before he answered, how
ever, the big form of Major Bristow
appeared, looking about him.
"It has-left a void," she said, her
eyes still downcast, her voice just low
enough, "-for me."
The major pounced upon them at
this juncture, feelingly accusing John
of the nefarious design of robbing the
assemblage of its bright and partic

slightly heightened, she was glad of
the interruption. It was better as It
was. When John Valiant came to her
again. . . .
But to him, as he stood watching
her move lightly from him, there was
voueh-fed illumination. It came to
him suddenly that that placidity and
hauteur which he had so admired in
the old days were no mask for fires
within. The exquisite husk was the
real Katharine. He s was the loveli
