watched Harry and Eliene. Here were
two people with everything in the

drifting apart and becoming estrang
ed simply .because idleness and lux

I could see where Eliene's serious
ness and ever-ready tears got on
pleasure-loving Harry's nerves and
where Harry's thoughtlessness and
careless neglect seemed heinous in
the self-centered eyes of Eliene.
I determined to go home and be
fore I slept that "night to write to
Dick, although up to this time I had
made up my mind not to write to
him until he had written to me.
I was brought out of meditation by
Eliene asking as the curtain went

"Do you think, Madge, that this play
is true? Will a man grow tired of a
wonjan's tears?" Harry looked at me
quickly as though anxious to know
what I was going to say.
"I think it is absolutely true, my
dear," I answered. "A woman who
weeps in and out of season can make
up her mind that in the end sjhe will
be iweeping alone, while hubby is
laughing with-the other woman."
