I've had three lessons this week. Next

"Watch out you're not flying like

Chicago was killed yesterday."
"Oh, I love the danger there 1b in
it," said Wrandall carelessly. "That's
what gives zest to the sport."
"I love it, too," said Hetty, her eyes
agleam. "The glorious feel of the

yet one seems to be standing perfect

Miss Castleton, if you'll trust your

"I will go," she announced promptly.
Booth frowned. "Better wait a

marked dubiously.
"She means you never get below it,
Leslie," said Booth, enjoying himself.
"That's the one great principle in
aeropianing," said Wrandall, quick to
recover. "Vivian 6ays I'll break my
neck some day, but admits it will be
a heroic way of doing it. Much nobler
than pitching out of an automobile or
catapulting over a horse's head in
Central park." He paused for effect
before venturing his next conclusion.
"It must bo ineffably sublime, being
equasnea or is it squshed? after a
drop of a mile or so, isn't it?"

thought of the other word, which re
flectively he rhymed with "pad."
'It occurred to him early in the
course of this one-elded discussion
tthat the hostess was making no ef
fort to take part in it, whether from
lack of interest or because of its friv

and replying In monosyllables, but
that she was aware of tho other wom

istant to bo doubted. Suddenly, after
a quick glance at Sara's face, she
looked squarely Into Booth's eyes, and
ho saw in hers an expression of actual

Leslie was In tho middle of a sen

been nothing in his remarks to call
for a laugh, he was quite sure of that.
Flushing ellghtly, she murmured some
thing about having thought of an
amusing story, and begged him to
go on, she wouldn't be rude again.
He had little zest for continuing the
subject and Bullenly disposed of it in
a word or two.

But he was perplexed.

The young men cooled their heels
for an hour before word was brought
down to them that Mrs. Wrandall
begged to be excused for the after
noon on account of a severe head
ache. Miss Castleton was with her,
but would be down later on. Mean
while they were to make themselves
at home, and so on and so forth.
Booth took his departure, leaving

swer suggested itself. He was decid
edly cross about it.
Another hour passed. His heels
were quite cool by this time, but his
blood was boiling. This was a deuce i
of a way to treat a fellow who had
gone to the trouble to come all the
way out In a stuffy train, by Jove, it
was! With considerable asperity he
rang for a servant and commanded
him to fetch a time table, and to bo
quick about it, as there might be a
train leaving before he could get back
if it took him as long to flnd it as
it took other people to remember their
obligations! His sarcasm failed to
impress Murray, who said he thought I
there was a schedule in Mrs. Wran
dall's room, and he'd get it as soon
as the way was clear, if Mr. Wrandall
didn't mind waltlni. '
If I minded waiting," snapped Les
lie, "I wouldn't be hero now."
As the footman was leaving, Sara's
automobile whirled up to the porte
cochere. "Who is going out, Murray?" ho
called in surprise.
"Miss CaBtleton, sir. For the air.
"The deuce you say!" gasped tho
harassed Mr. Wrandall. It was a
pretty kettle of fish!
Hetty appeared a few minutes later,
attired for motoring. '
"Oh, there you are," she said, espy
ing him. "I am going for a spin.
Want to come along?"
He swallowed hard. The ends of
his mustache described a pair of ab
solutely horizontal exclamation
points. "If you don't mind being en
cumbered," he remarked sourly.
"I don't in the least mind," said she
"Where are you eolni?" h nUori
without much enthusiasm. Ho wasn't
to bo caught appearing eager, not he.
Besides, it wasn't anything to be flip
pant about.
"Yonder," she Bald, with a liberal
sweep of her arm, taking In tho wholo
landscape. "And be home in time tn
dress for dinner," she added, as if to
relieve nis mind.
"Good Lord!" he groaned, "do we
have to eat again?"
"We have to dress for it, at least,"
sho replied.
"I'll go," he exclaimed, and amhled
off to secure a cap and coat.
Sara has planned for a run to
Lenox tomorrow if it doesn't rain,"
she informed him on his return. '
"Oh," he said, staring. "Booth gets
a day off on the portrait, then." I
"Being Sunday." she smiled "Wa '
knock off on Sundays and bank holi
days. But, after all, he doesn't really
get a holiday. He Is to go with us,
poor fellow."
He looked as though he expected
nothlnff. He could only sit back and
wonder why the deuce Sara meant by
behaving like ths.
They returned at seven. Dinner
was unusually merry. Sara appeared
to have recovered from her indispo
sition; there was color in her cheeks
and life in her smile. ' He took it to
be an omen of good fortune, and was
immeasurably confident. The soft,
cool breezes of the starlit night blew
visions of impending happiness across
his lively Imagination; fanned his im
patience with gentle ardor; filled him
with suppressed sighs of contentment,
and made htm willing to forego the
delight of conquest that he might live
the longer in serene anticipation of
its thrills.
Ten o'clock came. He arose and
stretched himself in a sort fit ecstasy.
His heart was thumping loudly, his
senses swam. Walking to the veran
dah rail he looked out across tho
moonlit sound, then down at the se
lected nook over against the garden
wall spot to be Immortalized! and
actually shivered. In ten minutes'
time, or even less, she would be down
there in his arms! Exquisite medita
tions 1
He turned to her with an engaging
smile, in which she might have dis
cerned a prophecy, and asked her to
come with him ,for a stroll along the
wall. And so he cast the die.
Hetty .sent a swift, appealing look
at Sara's purposely averted face. Les
lie observed the act, but misinterpret
ed Its meaning.
"Oh, it Is quite warm," ho said
quickly. "You won't need a wrap," ho
added, and in spite of himself his
joice trembled. Of course she wouldn't
need a wrap!
"I have a few notes to write," said
Sara, rising. She deliberately avoid

a Blnx-lke smile on her lips. Hetty
seemed very tall and erect, as one go
ing to meet a soldier's fate.
Then Sara entered the house and
sat down to wait
A long tlmo after a door closed
stealthily in a distant part of tho
house the sun-parlor door, she knew
by direction.
A few minutes later an upstairs
door creaked on its hinges. Some one
had come In from the mellow night,
and some one had been left outside.
I Many minutes passed. She sat
there at her father's writing table
and waited for the other to come in.
At last quick, heavy footfalls sounded
on the tiled floor outside and then
came swiftly down the hall toward
the small, remote room in which she
sat. She looked up as he unceremo
niously burst Into tho room.
i He came across and stood over her,
an expression of utter bewilderment
in his eyes. There was a ghastly
smile on his lips.
I "D n it all, Sara," he said shrilly.
I sue sne turned me down."
He seemed incapable of comnrenon.

Never mind! I'll get it from the side

He dropped heavily into a chair,
at the end of the table and looked at
her with glazed eyes. As she stared
back at him she had the curious feel
ing that he had shrunk perceptibly,
that his clothes hung rather limply
on him. His face seemed to have lost
all of its smart symmetry; there was
a looseness about the mouth and chin
that had ne' er been there before. Tho
saucy, arrogant mustache eloped de
jectedly. "I fancy you must havo gone about

"Badly?" he gasped. "Why why,

"I I can't get it through my head,"

"As I said before, you did it badly,"
sho said. "You took too much for

"God knows I didn't expect her to

her. "Would I have been such a fool

very thought of tho word caused it to
stick in his throat. Ho swallowed
"You really lovo her?" sho demand
ed. "Love her?" Thoro was a sob in
his voice. "I adore her, Sara. I
can't live without her. And the worst
of it is, I love her now moro than
I did before. Oh, it's appalling! It's
horrible! What am I to do, Sara?
What am I to do?"
"Be a man for a little while, that's
all," she said coolly.
"Don't Joke with me," ho groaned.
"Go to bed, and when you see her
in the morning tell her that you un
derstand. Thank hor for what Bhe
has dono for you. Bo "
"Thank her?" he almost shouted.
"Yes; for destroying all that is de
testable in you, Leslie your self-conceit,
your arrogance, your falso no

your egotism."
He blinked incredulously. "Do you
know what you're saying?" ho gasped.
She went on as if she hadn't heard

compunction for what she' has done,
that you are content to be her loyal,

"Don't let her suspect that you are
humiliated. On the contrary, give her
to understand that you are cleansed
and glorified."
"What utter tommy "
"Wait! Believe me, it 1b your only
chance. You will have to learn some
time that you can't ride roughshod
among angels. Think it over, old fol
low. You have had a good lesson.
Profit by it."
"You mean I'm to sit down and
twirl my thumbs and let some other
chap snap her up undor my very nose?
Well, I guess not!"
"Not necessarily. If you tako it
manfully she may discover a new in
terest in you. Don't breathe a word
of love to her. Go on as if nothing
had happened. Don't forget that I
told you in the beginning not to take
no for an answer."
Ho drooped once more, biting his
lip. "I don't see how I can ever tell
mother that she refused "
"Why tell her?" she inquired, rising.
His eyes brightened. "By Jove, I
shan't," he exclaimed.
"I am going up to the poor child
now," Bhe went on. "I dare say you
have frightened her almost to death.
Naturally she is in great distress. I
shall try to convince her that her de
cision does not alter her position in
this house. I depend on you to do
your part, Leslie. Mako it easy for
her to stay on with me."
He mellowed to the verge of tears.
"I can't keep on coming out hero
after this, as I've been doing, Sara."
"Don't be silly! Of course you can.
This will blow over."
"Blow over?" he almost gasped.
"I mean the first effects. Try being
a martyr for a while, Leslie. It isn't
a bad plan, I can assure you. It may

"By Jove!" he exclaimed, coming
to his feet with a new light in his
eyes. The hollows In his cheeks
seemed to fill out perceptibly.
"Good night!"
"I say, Sara, dear, you'll you'll help
me a bit, won't you? I mean you'll talk

Miss Castleton," she said from tho
doorway. His jaw dropped.
He was still ruminating over tho
callousness of the world in respect to.
lovers when she mounted the stairs
and tapped firmly on Hetty's door.
Hetty Castleton was stapdlng in
the middle of her room when Sara
entered. From her position it was
evident that she had stopped short in
her nervous, excited pacing of the
noor. bne was very pale, but there
was a dogged, set expression about
her mouth.
"Come In, dear," sho said, in a
manner that showed she had been
expecting the visit. "Have you seen
Sara closed the door, and then stood
with her back against it, regarding
ner agitated friend with serious, com
passionate eyes.
"Yes. He is terribly upset. It was
a blow to him, Hetty."
"I am sony for him, Sara. He was
so dreadfully In earnest. But, thank
God, it Is over!" Sho throw back
her head and breathed deeply. "That
horrible, horrible nightmare is ended.
I suppose it had to bo. But tho mock
ery of it think of it, Sara! tha
damnable mockery of it!"
"Poor Leslie!" sighed tho other.
"Poor old Leslie."
Hetty's eyes filled with tears. "Oh.
I am sorry for him. He didn't deserve
it God in heaven, If he really know
everything! If he knew why I could
not listen to him, why I almost I
screamed when ho held my hands In J
his and begged actually begged me
to Oh, it was ghastly, Sara!"
Sho covered her face with her
hands, and swayed as if about to fall. '
Sara came quickly to her side. Put
ting an arm about the quivering
shoulders, sho led tho girl to the
broad window seat and threw open I
the blinds. I
"Dont speak of it, dearest dont
think ot that Sit hare quietly In th
air and pull yourself together. Let
me talk to you. Let mo tell you how
deeply distressed I am, not only on
your account, but his."
They were silent for a long time,
tho girl lying still and almost breath
less against the other's shoulders. Sho
was still wearing the delicate blue
dinner gown, but in hor fingers was
the exquisite pearl necklace Sara bad
given her for Christmas, She had
taken Jt off ana bad forgotten to drop
it In her jewel box.
"I s'upposo he will go up to the city
early," she said monotonously.
"Leslie Is a better loser than you
think, my dear," said Sara, looking out
oyer the tops of the cedars. "He will
not run away."
Hetty looked up In alarm. "You
mean he will persist in in his atten
tions," she cried.
"Oh, no. I don't believe you will
flnd him to be the bugbear you Imag
ine. He can take defeat like a man.
He is devoted to you, he is devoted

to me. Your decision no doubt wrecks
his fondest hopes in life, but it doesn't
make a weakling of him."
"I don't qulto Understand "
"He is sustained by the belief that
he has paid you the highest honor a
man can pay to a woman. There is
no reason why he should turn his back
on you, as a sulky boy might do. No,
my dear, I think you may count on
him as yourbest, most loyal friend
from this night on. He has Just said
to me that his greatest pain lies in
the fear that you may not be willing
to accept him as a simple, honest, un
presuming friend since "
"Oh, Sara, if he will only be that
and nothing more!" cried the girl won
deringly. Sara smiled confidently. "I fancy
you haven't much to fear in that direc
tion, my dear. It isn't in Leslie Wran
dall's make-up to court a second re
pulse. He is all pride. The blow it
suffered tonight can't bo repeated at
least, not by the same person."
"I am so sorry it had to be Leslie,"
murmured Hetty.
"Bo nice to him. Hfittv. Hn rtpsprvri
that much of you, to say the least. I
should miss him if he found it Impos
sible to come hero on account of "
"I wouldn't have that happen for
the world," cried the girl In distress.
"He is your dearest friend. Send ma
away, Sara, If you must. Don't let
anything stand in the way of yout
friendship for Leslie. You depend on
him for so much, dear. I can't beat
the thought of"
"Hush, dearest! You are first in my
love. Better for me to lose all the
others and still have you."
Tho girl looked at her in wondei
for a long time. "Oh, I know you mean
It, Sara, but but how can it bo true?"
"Put yourself In my place," was all
that Sara said in reply, and her com
panion had no means of translating
the sentence.
She could only remain mute and
wondering, her eyes fixed on that
other mystery, tho cameo face in the
moon tbat bung high above the som
ber forest.
"Poor Leslie," murmured Sara, a
long, time afterward, a dreamy note
in her voice. "I can't put him out
of my thoughts. He will never get
over It. I havo never seen one so
stricken and yet so brave. He would
havo been more than a husband to
you, Hetty. It is in him to be a slave
to the woman he loves. I know him
well, .poor boy."
Hetty was silent, brooding. Sara
resumed her thoughtful observations.
"Why should you let what happened

She got no farther than that With
an exclamation of horror, tho girl
sprang away from her and glowered at
her with dilated eyes.
