like working together for getting to

"But the story?" she urged. "We
must finish tbe story."

"Oh, yes I Let me have a good typist

Boon
Mid delightful obligation.
It was but natural that Mary was
not only filled with love, but with
boundless and unbounded admiration.
This was the man at whose feet she
would have been content to sit for the
rest of her life, not daring to lift her
eyes higher than his knees. This was
her king among men, gifted and blessed
with the right royal inheritance of
genius. This man who asked so little]
who gave so much, was not one who
had power only over a handful of men.
No, the name with which he was en
dowed waB one which was known and
known approvingly throughout the
world known wherever the English
language was spoken nay, more than
known, for it was loved.
I do not wish to portray the charac
ter of Alan Stacey as that of a perfect
being. Indeed I must own, what Mary
had found out very early in her knowl
edge of him, that his besetting sin was
idleness, which is the besetting sin of
most spinners of stories. He was beset,
too, with idleness of two kinds, the
genuine and ordinary sort and the idle
ness which afflicts the brain worker. It
is only your nobodies who are thorough
ly industrious in art. Great genius is
always subject to what it usually calla
"idleness"—in other words, to brain
fag. To my mind the most pathetic rec
ord that we have of Qeorge Eliot ia
where ike oottvcjrt in totter toftfritnd

and has to flog her brain continually so
that she may get her promined task
completed in time. She, too, speaks of
it as idlonciw. And with that same kind
of idleness Alnn Stacey was continually
afflicted, as he was with a real love of
doing nothing.
his
feet. Mary drew back a little, partly
because the pleasnre of being betrothed
to the man of her heart, the man of her
brightest and most fervent admiration,
was very great It was natnral enongh.
Her first engagement had been a dry as
dnst basinoss, an arrangement which
was altogether in the light of a bar
gain. There was no bargain .between
her and Alan Stacey, only the sweet
and unspoken bargain of trust and
affection, mingled with the respect and
admiration which the one had for the
other. There was no question between
them as to whether he would give her
a dress allowance or as to what house
keeping money she would have to spend
there was no question as to whether
she would be able to do her duty by
him. No they loved each other, and
that was enough for both.
In times gone by he had many a day
sat down to work in tbe morning, say
ing: "Now, Mra Conway, I have got
to work today I have got to work hard.
Now, you keep me up to it." And no
sooner had Mary inscribed half a dozen
lines in her notebook than he would get
up and
Bay.
"By Jove, there's another
robin building its nest in that holly
bush!" or some such remark, which was
interesting enough in itself, bnt which
did not holp upon its way the story then
in hand. And often and often Mary had
had all her work cut out to keep him
chained to his task, and after they had
come to an understanding with one an
other it seemed to her as if he never
meant to work again, as if he could not
keep his mind off their plune for the
future, and as if any and every subject
was more interesting to him than the
fascinating romance upon which they
were then at ^rork.
"Yes, we will go to Monte Carlo,"
she said at last one day, "but we will
not go to Monte Carlo, or to Paris, or
to chnrcb, or anywhere else until you
huve finished this story. Come, now, I
am waiting to hear what you are going
to do with Evangeline now."
"I think I shall chuck it up,".was
his reply.
"No, no. To that I resolutely decline
to be a party. I am not coming into
your life to ruin you. You have to fin
isb that story before we can dream of
being married. Come, pull yourself to
gether. Think I Evangeline is standing
at the top of tbe staircase wondering
what is going to happen next."
Well, in dn course the story wi
finished, and when the last words had
been taken down he asked her eagerly
what she thought of it.
"Give me your candid opinion," he
said.
"I think," said Mary, "that it is by
far the greatest book that you have ever
done."
And then tbey were married, going
quietly to church one morning, Jittend
ed only by a great friend oP
Stacey's and the girl tbrpugh whom
indirectly the marriage bad come about
—the girl who hud first given Mary the
idea of taking up typewriting as a eeri
ous profession. Then tbey went back to
tbe Sycamores and had a dainty little
lunch, at which they made miniature
speeches, drank each other's health
and were as merry as if the party had
been one and forty instead of but four
persons. Then at the last moment, just
before they rose from the table, the beet
man thought of something.
"My dear chap," said he to the bride*
groom, "there is one thing about
which you have given me no instruc
tions. What about the ann6uncements
to the papers?"
"Need it be announced asked Mqry.
"My dear Mrs. Stacey," replied the
best man, "it is absolutely essential.
Bohemian as Stacey is—has always
been—he is yet at the same time a per
sona grata in society, and unless your
marriage is announced formally and im
mediately I am afraid that it will not
be so pleasant for you when you come
home again. Here, give me a bit of pa
per, Stacey. Tell me how you wish the
announcement to be worded, and I will
see that it is in all tomorrow's papers.
Alan Stacey got up and fetched a
sheet of paper and a pen and ink from
the writing table in tho window.
Give it to me," said Mary. "This
is my idea what to say." She took the
sheet of paper from bis hand and wrote
clearly and firmly: "On the 10th,
as the
proper arrangements could be made. It
was all so different from her last mar
riage. Then, everything had been ar
ranged for her now, everything was
arranged so as to fall in with her slight
est wish. Her first husband had had
very little to offer her, when put in
comparison with Alan Stacey. Captain
Conway had been elderly, rough, plain
and only comparatively well off. He
had demanded impossible things, and
when be discovered that bis desires
were impossible of gratification his love
for the girl whom be had sworn to pro
tect and cherish had been curiously in
termingled with an absolute hatred.
His was the kind of nature which to
begin with says, "I will teach you to
love me," and afterward, "If I cannot
teaoh you to love me, I will kill you!"
His was the kind of nature which says,
"If I cannot bend, I will break the
nature which looks at every situation
of life from its own standpoint and
judges all the world entirely by its own
doings. It is always this kind of na
ture which is inherently dominant and
essentially domineering. And how dif*
ferent was Alan Stacey 1 He, gifted, in
tellectual and brilliant, was content to
lay everything at tbe feet of the woman
be loved—all the fame he had won, the
position he had made, the wealth he
had amassed. His desire was not to be
his wife's master, but her knight not
to feel that he was conferring honor
and status upon her, but to assume al
ways that in giving herself to him she
was laying him under an everlasting
Btaff
corps, to Mary
Conway, daughter of the late Rev.
George Hamilton."
She handed the paper across the table
to her husband, and be, knowing her
well, realized instantly that her horror
and detestation of her first marriage
She took the sheet of paper from his hand
and wrote clearly and /irmly,
had remained with her to such an ex
tent that she would not, even in the
formal announcement, identify herself
with the man who had commanded the
Arikhauia, the man who had bought
her with a price, the man who bad
given her the only blow that she had
ever received in the whole course of her
life.
CHAPTER XI. J|
ON THE
Top
op THE
tide,
One of the rules of Alan Stacey a life
was that when he took a holiday it
should be a real holiday. He was not
one of those persons who combine busi
ness with pleusure and make themselves
an annoyance to their friends by keep
ing tbe bogy of work ever present with
them.
They left London immediately after
the wedding, going by slow and easy
stages to Italy, aud for three long, de
licious months, they reveled in luxu
rious happiness. Alau Stacey made
traveling so easy. He was content to
travel for pleasure he detested people
who made it a business.
"No, my dear sir," he'said one day
to an enthusiastic American who was
badgering him to go and see an Etrus
can tomb, "I have not gone, and I do
not mean to go."
"But, my dear sir, it ia your duty to
go you ought to go you ought to im
prove your mind you ought to see all
that there is to be seen. This is a won
derful specimen, a real old Etruscan
tomb. You may never have another op

They worked their way home from
Italy at last, returning by way of the
Riviera, and the middle of May saw
Mrs. Alan Stacey settled in tbe beauti
ful old house at Fulham, with what
was practically the world at her feet.
How happy she was! She had been
used to think that, no matter what fate
awaited her in the future, tho horror,
the sickening dread, the terror, the re
pugnance, the shuddering misery, or tne
past would always be with her. But it
was not so. Time, the wonderful phy
sician, taught her to forget, and by the
time she found herself installed in the
Fulham house she might, so fur us her
feelings went, have been Mrs. Alan
Stacey for ten years instead of little
more than as many weeks.
On the very first morning after their
arrival home she sent for tbe housekeep
er who bad been left in charge of the
Sycamores at the time of their mar
riage.
I sent for you," Bald Mrs. Stacey
gently, "because it is better that we
should begin with a clear understand
ing of how we mean to go on. You will
quite understand that as I shall con
tinue to help Mr. Stacey with his work
I shall have no time for housekeep
ing. You understand Mr. Stacey's
ways, his likes and dielikfes. He has
been admirably satisfied with you in
the past, and I would like you to know
now that I desire to make no change.
So long as you continue to satisfy your
maeter you will sa ify me. You will
please continue exactly as you have
done heretofore—your accounts, your
menus, everything just as before. Oc
casionally I may make a suggestion to
you if there is some dish that I should
like to have, or if we are having visit
ors I may like to make some little al
terations in tbe menu, but as a general
rule I do not wish to be troubled with
any housekeeping arrangements."
The housekeeper, who was a French
woman and thoroughly knew tbe value
of a good place, thanked her mistress
and assured her of her fidelity and de
votion.
Then Mary rang the bell, and when
John came in answer to tbe summons
she told him to shut the door that she
wished to speak to him.
John," she said, "I,have just been
talking to Mme. Boniface and telling
her that I wish your master's marriage
to make no difference in tbe domestic
arrangements. You have satisfied him
for many years, and I hope yoa will
continue to satisfy him for many years
longer. I may have to give you a few
orders, but on the whole I wish you to
continue precisely as you have always
done."
"You wonld like to have tbe key of I
the cellar, ma'am?" said John politely.
He had no more intention of giving up
the key of tbe cellar than he had of
giving up the use of his senses, but to
make the offer was tbe highest compli
ment be could pay to bis new mistress.
Mary laughed outright. "No, John,"
die said "I do not think the key of the
cellar would be of very much use to me.
I am frightened of cellars, to tell you
the truth, and I shouldn't know one
bottle of wine from another. No. John
you understand Mr. Stacey's ways, and
you will please just do for him as you
have been accustomed to .do. I don't
think that his marriage—our marriage
—will make him more difficult to
please. I hope quite the contrary. But,
thank you, John, for offering me the
key of the cellar. I am sure it is a very
great compliment, and I appreciate it
highly."
And then she smilingly dismissed
him, and John went away feeling that,
after all, bis master had done the very
best possible thing for himself.

Then she and Alan settled down to
real bard grinding work. He declared
many times that never in the whole
course of his existence had he been
kept to work so ruthlessly and so per
sistently as by bie new task mistress.
"By Jove, if 1 had thought that you
were going to goad me on like this, I
should have thought twice before I
asked you to come here for good and

"Oh, no, you wouldn'tl" said Mary.
"It is very good for you, and you know

mark for certain hours she was able to
be free herself at a fixed time every day
And there was never an idle minute for
either of them, for, as I said awhile
ago, Alan Stacey had always been a
persona grata in society, and his many
friends all aeemed but too anxious to
receive his Wife with open arms.
It was a brilliant life. All that-was
best and brightest in tbe great world of
art flocked to Alan Stacey's house now
that it boasted of so charming a mis
tress. Mrs. Alan Stacey went every
where and was noted wherever she
went. Almost every day, in the col
umns devoted to the doings of well
known people, there was mention of the
brilliant novelist and bis wife. Her
dress, her receptions, her tastes, were
continually chronicled, and for his sake
-for Mary was singularly farseeing in
everything that concerned her husband
she put herself to immense pains in
order that she should always create as
favorable an impression us possible. She
was essentially tbe very wife for such a
man. She never attempted in any way
to shine hiiu down. Ruther, on the con
trary, did she draw him out and show
him at his best. She ruled his house
hold with a dignity and simplicity that
went to make her a favorite with all
classes of his friends. Her great hold
over him lay in the fact that, although
she was possessed of no artistic gift her
self, she was never dull, was not in the
