John And later that night Hie girl thought of ovciythltig, thought of whtit suth n step might mean, of tho anger of her parents, that they nilght dlown hot. that she did not really know him and that he might not be milted to her. Hut above nil these thoughts there roi"o another. Her love for him. his leva for her. And that thought tiuinphed. She would go. She would not piomlse. but she would go, would talk to him, would ree, and then, perhaps-- Fa voted In everything as she had been all her life bv her paiontf, Mur gatet's i use to get away fiom home for i few days vvus easily accomplished. She intended visiting an old fchoolmate, one ot tlie scmlnury git Is, the one who had introduced her to the young man In Jaekvoi' nt the academy dance. And tit Hie etui of three dnys she was toady to s'tnit on the mot row. She undeistood heisclt well. Never had she known any one who In the smallest degi eo hnd entered her heait. At school she had studied long and late, and gone home finally with a card of honor. The life of the country town was galling to the gltl. Her naturally sensitive temperment thafed within the narowness of her life Such an adventure as flic had now started In ii'ion was but natural to her. She did not Inform John Thompson of the date of her in rival. So. when the train at last whliled Into the sta tion at Jackson uho saw no familiar face. Her cheel weie aglow as she stepped from the platfoitn of the coach to the ground. Soon she would see him, and then Was her dieain to prove but u dream, or was she to find In him that which her heait most longed for? She took a rairlage and told the driver the address to which she wished to be taken his ndchres. It was not a long lido. At every bump of tho vehi cle the gill's heait bumped. Those few tnlnuti s of the diive weie minutes; of unxloty, almost of tot ment to her, so wrought up had she become1 lu hut mind by the thought that pel haps he did not teally mean he wished her to come, he teally did not mean that ho loved her. At last the carriage flopped, the door was opened. The girl alighted. The vehicle had drawn up before a gloat stone and bilek house In what appeared to be a fashionable patt of town eumpaiod to the dlsttlcts which she had pased on her way fiom the station. She told the driver to wait for her, nnd she ran lightly up the wall: to the pinch. JuKt ns she pushed the button of the bell she noticed n woman dart away from one of the fiont windows. Jn another Instant the door was opened, and by a woman. "Mr. John Thompson lives here, does he not."' Inquired Margniet with a tremor in iter voice. The woman looked al her queeily, fixedly for an Instant, then teplled. "Yes, won't you come InV" From the hall the girl was ushuied Into a pallor on the loft. The woman followed her. About her mouth there played u little smile of curlimlty and lnt"iost and her eyes weie quizzically studying the gltl. "Is Mr. Thompson busy?" asked Margin et. "No," was the woman's icply, "what would jou like or him'.'" The gill looked up stat tied. "Why- why," she tftammered, "It's a little mutter of purely poisonal business." And then she exclaimed suddenly, "Maybe you ate his sister, are you?" Again the queer look in the woman's ey.'i, again thut little cuilous smile. Then situ said (Irmly. "No, 1 am not his sister. 1 am John Thompson, the John Thompion whom you wish to t-rp." Mai gin et Adams did not uttei u sound. The bilghtness died out of her eyes. Ilor lips parted slightly and showed In r teeth between them. Slowly her flngeis loosened i heir giip on the handkerchief that she held in her tap. Then she ci led, h though pulling her self together for an offoit of stiongth, "Anil titi you are the one who wiote the letters to me. I ant Margaret Adams.' "Yes," leplled the woman, si I'd willing. ' I elk! It for my own amuse ment, and to tench fotno foolish gill a le?on. f am Sony the gltl happens. to be Mti h a piettv one ns vou ate As for the picture, that Is of an actor now engaged lu New Yotk. a man who htift been mill l led for ear.a. anil whose wife " She did not finish the sentence. Mar gai'i't's bend fell lo one .de on nor slioulcli i. Hot lips opened furthei. and there was a fleck of white In each eor n r of hei mouth.
