Time goes so slowly when one is waiting. The half hour struck. At last it commotion in the hull, a breezy voice addressing the maid, and the expected culler was uiinounced.

"I came expecting to take you out somewhere. Can't you make a quick change and go out with me. We can get in the second net of the opera. What do you say?" I.azellc hesitated. She had antici pated a long cozy evening hv the tire side with the man sin* had learned to love. Still, she must keep the pace if “You See, I Feel So Near You and Trust You So." she cxpect.-d to hold his Interest. With a iaugh she hurriisl from the room, and running upstairs rang for her timid. Left alone, from the depths of a big chair Jerry meditated. A beauti ful setting this woman must certainly have had. A wonderfully interesting personality was here. The youngest member of the law firm by which all the I'refits property was cared for. lie had been sent often to this woman for consultations. Late ly he laid come for pleasure and many times had taken his client out with him for amusement. A young man nearing thirty he was still retaining his boyish rugged freshness. Ilis mind was clear and clean. “What luck• to have a friend like this little woman." lie thought. “One could easily cont.de in her." I.azellc entered the room gaily dressed for the str<-et. “Let's take away hack seat at the opera and then go out somewhere for just a Idte." "Right you arc. We will do just that." lie held her arm carefully, go ing down the steps and assisted her into the machine waiting for them I.azellc wished with a little annoy ■lice that he Would help her less She wondered if he gave young girls so much help.

The years between them were net noticeable in the shaded entiille light. I.azelle carefully wuteheil her compan ion anil wished she could know wliut wus iii his iiiiiul. The light wine she drunk affected her a little. She wondered Just how he felt toward her. The late lutimaey hail been so sweet to her, in her lone lines*. Iler inurriuge hail been such a nightmare. Might not her money count iii her favor to offset those ex tra years? If only Jerry were her own age: Could time be bridged over so he would notice no difference be tween them? She exported and felt that the affair would culminate tonight. A slight snow had fallen during the evening. As tl.e lug machine bowled slowly homeward Hazel le felt the nearness of her companion. Somehow, tonight he had been unusually silent for one of his temperament. Always with her he had been so keen in conversation. Stepping out to the curb, the wom an's foot slipped and for a moment her weight rested in Jerry's arms. She bent her head and looked deeply into his eyes. The man smiled back in all absorbed fashion and gently pushed her into the house. Again they en tered the long drawing room where the logs were always burning. I.azelle drew her chair near the lire and Jerry found a low stool and placing it at her feet sat himself upon it. "licar lady. I want to toll you .some thing and ask you a ipie-ttion. Per haps I haven't been interesting to night. Maybe I shouldn't have forced my company upon you. The whole truth is that 1 am In love." i.azelle felt the red blood pound from her head to her .-x.piisi feet.

His listener's lead was thrown back against the leather hack of the chair. Ib r face was white and drawn. "Aren't you well? Is anything the mutter?" asked the young man solicit ously “Just a little faintness. All right now,” was the whispered unswer. “Mother Used to have such Sj.ells, I'm so sorry.” I.azelle drew her hand away and got to her feet. This time she walked away from tiie mirmr. Ib r rellection Ho longer tempted her. Hack and forth several times she paced, then she turned to the waiting youngster. "I want to hear all about it. I’ring her here tom urow afternoon. I'll do what I can for you. I need a girl for company, fan she he my guest until your until ‘'You're a dear. I.azelle I knew you would he jii't such a brick. I can he married soon now. I hope.
