portrait at the end of the long living
room, "I must say that Brandon has

"Really wonderful. It will make Bran-

"She's so healthy-looking," said
"English," remarked Leslie, as if
that covered everything.
"Nonsense," cried the elder Mrs.
Wrandall, lifting her lorgnette again.
'"Pure, honest, unmixed blood, that's
what it is. There is birth in that
.girl's face."
"You're always talking about birth,
mother," said her son sourly, as he

"It's a good thing to have," said his
mother with conviction.
"It's an easy thing to-get in Amer

It was then that Sara prevailed upon
them to Btop for luncheon. "Hetty al

"Oh, as for that " began Leslie and
istopped, but he could not have been
more lucid if he had uttered the sen

"Why didn't you pick her up and
bring her home with you?" asked Sara,
as they moved off in the direction of
"the porch.

It was long post the luncheon hour
'wnen Hetty came In, flushed and

She was shaking hands with Mrs.

dilated eyes. He misinterpreted the
steady scrutiny. "Oh, it will all peel

"When did you return?" she asked.
"I thought tomorrow was "
"Leslie never has any tomorrows.
Miss Castleton," explained Vivian.
'He always does tomorrow's work

troubles ahead of him."
"What rot!" exclaimed Leslie.
"Where is Mr. Booth?" Inquired
Sara. "Wouldn't he come in, Hetty?"
"I I didn't think to ask him to
stop for luncheon,' she replied, and
then hurried off to her room to make
herself presentable.
Hetty was ra. a state of nervous ex

encounter with Booth had not resulted

fool as to refuse him the second time.
"It is barely possible, Leslie," sho
said, "that she may consider Brandon

and infinitely better looking at the

"IJt's this beastly sunburn," he la

"Just a minute, Viv," ho called out.
"What does Miss Castleton Bay about
coming?" It was an eager question.
Much depended on the reply.
"I haven't asked her," said his sIb
ter succinctly. "How could I, without
first consulting Sara?"
"Then you don't Intend to ask her?"
"Certainly not."
After the Wrandalls had departed,
Sara took Hetty off to her room. The
girl knew what was coming,
"Hetty," said the older woman, fac
ing her after she had closed the door
of her boudoir, "what is going on be
tween you and Brandon Booth? I
must have tho truth. Are you doing
anything foolish?"
"Foolish? Heaven help me, no!
It It Is a tragedy," cried Hetty, meet
ing her gaze with one of utter despair.
"What has happened? Tell me!"
"What am I to do, Sara darling?
He he has told me that he ho "
"Loves you?"
"And you have told him that his
love is returned?"
"I couldn't help it. 1 was carried
away. I did not mean to let him see

"You are such a novice In the busi
ness of love," said Sara sneerlngly.
"You are in tho habit of being carried
awny, I fear."
"Oh, Sara!"
"You must put a stop to all this
at once. How can you think of marry
ing him, Hetty Glynn? Send him"
"I do not intend to marry him," said
the girl, suddenly calm and dignified.
"I am to draw but one conclusion,
I eupposo," said the other, regarding
the girl intently.
"What do you mean?"
"Is it necessary to ask that ques
tion?" The puzzled expression remained in
the girl's eyes for a time, and then
lowly gave wny to one of absolute

Sara laughed shortly. "Isn't the In
ference a natural one? You are for

"I understand," said the girl, throueh
pallid lips. Her eyes were dark with
pain and misery. "You think I am al

"But you went there with him," in
sisted the other, her eyes hard as

Hetty threw herself upon her com

trms about her.
"Sara. Sara, you must let mn ex

with a cold, repelling look.
"Walt!" she commanded. "The time

aionths. It concerns you. I expect

Hetty stopped short.
"How can you jest with me, Sara?"
me cried, suddenly indignant.
"I am not jesting," said Sara lev
slly. "You you really mean what you
aave just said?" The puzzled look
gave way to one of revulsion. A great
shudder swept over her.
"Leslie Wrandall must pay his
brother's debt to you."
"My God!" fell from tho girl's stiff
lips. "You you must be going mad
Sara laughed softly. "I have meant
It almost from the beginning," she
said. "It came to my mind the day
that Challis was buried. It has never
been out of it for an instant since that
Jay. Now you understand."
If sho expected Hetty to fall Into
i fit of weeping, to collapse, to plead
with her for mercy, she was soon to
find herself mistaken. The girl
straightened up suddenly and met her
gaze with one in which there was the
fierce determination. Her eyes were
steady, her bosom heaved.
"And I have loved vou bo dnvntorfiv
so blindly," she said, In low tones
of scorn. "You have been hating me
all these months while I thought you
were loving me. What a fool I have
been! I might have known. You
couldn't love me."
"When Leslie asks you tonight to
marry him, you are to say that you
will do so," said Sara, betraying -no
sign of having heard the bitter words'.
"I shall refuse, Sara," said Hetty,

was throbbing all over with tho lovo
