NO GO ON WITH THE STORY CHAPTER TWENTY-TWO TJARRETT said decisively, "Show Mr. Streeter to the hall, please, Benson, and tell him that I—Miss Stafford'* fiance—will see him there.” The butler, after one frank look of surprise, stiffly piloted the bill collector toward the front of the apartment. Elinor has risen. Barrett rose also and stood looking down at her. ‘There is no oth°r way out of all this for you or me either,” he re minded her gently. "I don't—suppose there is,” she agreed. "I hope you don’t mind my mak ing the decision for you?” he added. 1 “No.” she answered. "I don't—” j There was a moment’s silence, j Barrett broke it with, "Elinor—l shall have to call you that, you know—” He paused. "Yes.” T don’t want any one to know of this arrangement of ours. Least of all, your mother—” It was settled, he saw. He had done it! "Because of all that has happened,” he went on. "I think we should be married as soon as possible. Would tomorrow be all right?” "Oh—!” "At what time tomorrow, Elinor?” She moistened her lips. "I don’t care,” she whispered. "Whenever you like—whenever you think best.” “Then noon if that suits you.” "It will suit me as wtII as any time.” she answered. She was deep ly shaken, he saw, and afraid. a tt a HE stepped closer to her. “Look up at me,” he ordered. She obeyed. "Do you trust me?” he went on. "I—think so!” she responded weakly. “You must, you know,” he stated inflexibly. “There must be no ‘think’ about it, and—you can! I want you to understand that.’’ She nodded; he saw' she could not trust herself to speak. "I’ll see that man now," he said. Mr. Streeter, the determined col lector, gave Barrett a long, item ized bill headed, “Madame Yvette.” On it w f ere listed frocks, under things, a sweater, a hat or two, and an amazing total. "They w'ere bought by Mrs. Staf ford,” the man explained. “Um—a—re you Madame Yvette?” Barrett questioned. He felt ab surdly light-hearted. Mr. Streeter grinned sheepishly “You have to have some kind of name,” he replied. “I am Barrett Colvin,” said Bar rett. “Miss Stafford and I are to be married soon. Your bill will be at tended to. I’ll send you my check as soon as Miss Stafford becomes Mrs. Colvin. Does that satisfy you?” He heard the man’s assurances that it did. In Barrett’s mind the words re-echoed; "Mrs. Colvin—Mrs. Barrett Colvin —Elinor Colvin ’’ “The engagement is not secret,” Barrett went on. “but I do not want this interview reported. Do I make myself understood?" “Oh, certninly!” Mr. Streeter as sured him. ■,g.6r. Colvin,” he said weightily “I m sure you’re going to be very happy!" - THIS CURIOUS WORLD ~ %<?

"Thanks,” he said. “The signs are right!” Streeter assured him, bowing from the door way. W'hen Barrett left a half hour later it was with the consciousness that he was to be married to Elinor Stafford at noon the following day. It was a bit upsetting to realize that within twenty-four hours he was to be married to a girl with whom he must masquerade every sign of affection, a girl whom he could not respect as he should, a girl who did not love him and w’hom he did not love. As soon as he had reached home he said sharply, “Higgins, get Mrs. Radnor on the telephone for me, please.” Marcia was amazed. She repeated again and again that she was “so happy" for Barrett. He heard her fluttering, excited comment and, after he had put down the telephone again, paused thoughtfully. All this was not going to be entirely easy. Then, hurrying to the hall, he picked up his hat and set out once more. He had to see Arthur Pal mer who was both a personal friend and the clergyman of the church the Colvins had attended for years. n tt a TWENTY minutes later Palmer, a pleasantly athletic type of man with keen, kind eyes, rose from be hind a littered desk. “What’s up?" he asked. “Another trip to Gobi?” “Better than that!” Barrett an swered. dropping his hat and gloves to the one cleared space on the desk. “Will you marry me to morrow’ at noon?” “Will I? Great hat! Os course I will. Who’s the girl?” Barrett sat down and told him. “Know her?” he asked. His old friend nodded slowly. “I know of her,” he said. “I’ve al ways looked on you, Barry, as one of the finest men I know, but I’m darned if you aren’t lucky. I’ve never understood how Miss Staf ford could be the sort of girl she is. She hasn’t had much ‘to help her but she’s beautiful inside as w : ell as out. I’m glad for you, Bar rett—” “She seems to think I’m all right," Barrett answered, thinking, “if she did I might play the credu lous fool again but—she doesn’t.” Arthur Palmer wondered whethei Elinor Stafford knew' of the ex istence of his friend’s ward and the truth of that matter. He hoped so. Otherwise, the facts could so eas ily be misunderstood and lead to difficulties. He had seen Gerald at Barrett's request. He had helped Barrett find anew home for the youngster, and had been struck by the fact that the boy resembled Barrett so closely. “Noon, you said?” he asked, flip ping the leaves of an engagement book. “Yes, if that suits you.” “Great hat, you know you can have your wedding w’hen you want it! I'd do anything to make other matters suit. Want to be mar ried in the church?” “I would,” Barrett said slowly, “if that’s what she wants—” “Why not telephone her?” Pal mer suggested, pushing the instru ment forward.
