A» I wa* about to go, little booV Harvey's old father looked at m from under bis ihitn white brow and »atd rather curiously, "And you husband, doea he know that you hav attempted thla Sir Galahad sort ο undertaking: In my son's behalf?" "Not yet, Mr. . I may tei him all about it when I go back hom< but I am not sure. Ton see I do no feel that I have a rlffht to tell any one this adventure as it is not my ow: but the very intimate, personal ex pcrience of another." "1 confess the modern woman is puuio to me," said Harvey's fathe who had again taken on the more ο less sarcastic manner with which h greeted ma. "But them is one thini you have demonstrated to me, mad ame," he said as he touched the buz E«r at hie elbow, "and that is tha the modern woman docs not lacl courage. I will go tonight to my son I am an old man," he added, "but don't think that age has blinded m to beauty or courage," and he bowei me out. There you have it, little book. Tsn' it a beastly kind of world that make a man think he can get away wit] anything with a woman If he onl: flatters her? That old man down il his heart thought he had rehabilitate· himself in my mind by that bit of flat tery thrown out to be me as I left. I did not get back to Donna's unti late that afternoon and when I got ii I found her engaged in a mystic am mystifying rite. She was gowned In deep mourning not a bit of white anywhere to relieve the somber blackness. Her hair, li Its beautiful whiteness—she had somi how contrived to make It quite whlti again—was tho only thing that was not sober about her. Her lips were unsmiling: and her eyes were not only sad but a little hard, as though the grief she had undergone had crystal ized her soul a little. f ' I was cudgelling my braian to tlilnk I if it wan an anniversary of Bill's I [ death she was celebrating, but soon ' came to the conclusion that I was on tho wrong tack for Bill died, I dis tinctly remembered,' In the spring of the year. I went In to Donna's own little sit ting room and found her placing a , bunch of violets under a full length * I picture of herself when she was a girl _ I of sixteen. Beside tho picture she " had drawn up α cheval mirror and I from time to time she looked from ■ I the pictured girl to her own faco and '} form in the mirror. ". I had come up the stairs unannoune , j ed and she did not hear me until I ^ ι was in the room. As I turned sud : ! denly to go out—It seemed to me I " that I had surprised her doing some ' : thing that was not for the eyes of II even her devoted friend—I made α little noise and she turned. With a little sigh that might have been a laugh or a groan, she turned 1 to me and put out her hand. "Come ' on in, Margie," she said. "Tou have 1 inadvertantly caught mo. at a little 1 ceremony that I have gone through ■1 with on the recurrence of this day for 1 years. Ever since my first birthday I after I had left Will, when I found [ that he was In love with Kitty Mal I ram, I have been foolish and senti mental enough to go back over my ■ life on my birthday and also by plac ! ing a few flowers under the picture ι here I have tried to tell this dead > girl pictured here that I remember ι lier.' ι "But, Donna, I have always thought this was your portrait." "Ir Is a portrait of me painted -when I was sixteen years old. but the girl In that frame is lust as nvirely dead as though she had been buried and had crumbled away to dust.' I looked at the picture, little book, and then I looked at Donna. She had told the truth—the sixteen year old girl was dead and the woman sitting near her was someone «luite dlffcr ! ent. I wondered, little book, if I were so changed from the girl who way back in the old days had taught, school and who had fallen so desper ately In love with Dick at sight.
