Thla time aho had offended her ma'ster by rofuslng to danco for tho Amerlcan who threw hla money ao lavlshly nbnut. Ho liad apeelally aaked that the glrl wlth tho red rheeks, large eyes and white akln bo nsked to danco for hlm. Tho danclng mata were thrown, tho muslo atarted, and KJiku had tlfrust forward ono llttlo foot and had eourtealnd to the four cornera of the earth. Then ahe twlrled clear around on the tlpa of tho tooa of one llttle foot, her hand taperlng out toward the Amerlcan. She. hnd ataxted to dance wlthout onco glanc lng at the vlaltor. By chanco her eyo happened. to faJl on hlm, and with n. audden whim ahe pauaed ln her ateps and aubaided to the mata, her llttle feet drawn under her. Thn Amerlcan was watehlng the glrl wlth nmuaed eyes. Then ho crossed to whero ahe eat on tho ground. "Why dld you stop danclng?" he asked her, In falrly good Japaneae. Sho answernd hlm In broken Engllah: "Tha'a account I nod llg* to danze for you!" ahe told hlm ca.ndldly. The glrl stlll sat on teh mat, looklng atralght out before hor, her face i readable ln ita cold Indlfference. Hllton cculd not underatand her. Sho was ao unllke any Japaneae glrl he had ever met, for they generally were ao wililng nnd eager to pleaao. After a tlme he broko tho aomewhat stralned ailence to say, In hta aoft. drnwllng fashion: "Would you not llke somethlng?er? to drlnk? Shall I fetch somethlng for you?" Thn question was ao absurd that the glrl'a studled Indlfference broke down. "Tha's nod your place to wald on me!" ahe Bald eoftly. rislng to her feet. "I thlng thad you llg somethlng to drlng. Ycs? Thad I glt pald to worg here. I thlng. I bedder hrihg you aomethlng to drlng." ahe added stlfriy. "Bud I nod llg to wald on you. I prefer vaery much wald on Japaneae gents." There waa a atbltant aoftneas to her volce that waa bewildertng in its chsnn and sweetneaa, and her broken Engllsh waa prettler than anythlng ho had evfr heard. When she brought the hot "sake" baek to hlm her face waa amlllng above the rtainty tray. and as she knelt at hla feet wHIle he drank it. he could aee that her former petulant mood was gone, and that ahe was now uaing every effort ta pleasn and conclliato him. "Now you look like a Japaneae '?un bearn," ho told her, softly, looklng un utterable 'thlngs st her out of hla deep gray eyes. "Thafs account I "frald glttlng dls charged," she told hlm, calmly, stlll amlllng. "Mr. Tafcahashi tell me if I nod vaery kin' to you he goln' to send mo long wny from here." "Ah, I aee. Then you are only pretend tng to smile?" She Bhrugged her llttle ahoulders. ?"Ve's," she' sald.,llndlfferently. "That'a worg for gelsha glrl. Whad yon thlng we goln' to glt pald for? Account we frown? Or account we Inugh? i tfilng tha'e account we laugh. Thad Is my worg. What you thlng?" "That you are a phllosopher." he told her, amlllng, and added: "But what a cynlc. too; I dldn't expect to flnd lt among Japaneae women?syniclsm." Tho glrl amlled a trlfle bltterly. "Oal" she aald. "you nod fln* thad 'mong Japaneae?only m?! I dlfferent from aeverybody elan," She eet tho tray on the ground and, sat down nt hls feet. ''How old aro you?" Hllton asked her, curloualy. "Twenty-two," ahe, told hlm. "You look llko a chlld." It was two weeks later- Wlth a rest less fosclnntlon hn could not underatand, Hllton went every day to the llttle tea houae on the hlll. Always he aought out Okikusan, and would spendHha entire day with her, totally obltvioua tn nlmost all olso savo the glrl's beauty and charm, And Hllton forfrot hls mlsalon in Japan,' forgot that Japaneae women had nJw'aya been merely the playthinga of a moment; that he had tlred of llre?everythlng aavo the dellghtful, Irresistlblo feellngs that had awakened In hlm. What was It? Hllton was In love, and wlth a Japaneso woman! Yeara ago, he had married one ln Jap? aneae fashion, and had left Uer. She' had beon a gen|lo, cllnglng llttle woman, wlth whom bo hnd passed .1 droamy. sleepy summer. What.could be do wttb Klku? Sho was unllke any Japaneaa woman ho had evor known?unllke any worrtvn ho had m?t. Sho was the ono woman ln tho world ho had .loved durlng nll hla long, cheekered career?? a llfe ppent ln ldle puranlt nf hla own pleasurea. Hllton's frlend. who had accompanled hlni on the voyage, was heglnnlng to feol nnxJoua about him, for, in splta of hla ndmlssion of hls own wcakneaa for Jap nnnae women, ho was far moro nllve to nnd qulclt to scent real dnnger than Hll? ton who followed hla oxtravagont lm pulses onlv, whlle ,the cooler man kept a level hoad ln tho mldat of hls pleasurea. "My dear boy," ho aald to HUton, "you've got tho fover, 1 bollove?" Hllton lnughed woakly. "Nonsenae!" J "You nro in love with aome Japaneae glrl!" his frlend continued. "You want to look out for them, you know." Hilton roae to hla feot and began pac lng thn room ln long, lrrogular atrhlcs. "Pon't you suppose I am old enough to bo proof aRalnst auoh thlngs?" "Well, 1 don't know, Hllton, to tell you tho trutli. You ane, Japnneaa wo men are dlfforont. You'ro ottly human, after all. I'd ndvlse you, to marry her for awhiln, of eourse. ns you dld thu othor one." .'."."' . ? - "l havo an iden," Hllton anld, wlth somo heBltnnoy, "that I am too old for atiothen affnlr of that klnd, I thought of soltllng down?thnt ls, I Intended ro ttirnlng to Anwlca,. and -er-mnrrylng." "What aro you wnttlng for, tht-n?" Ho flung lilmaelf ri?atlesaly noross a couch"; starlng moodlly nt tha fiiauma, "What do you say to our lenvlng ne*?t week?" "Good." -> " "BPtter keep nway from thn ten houaq ln tho moanwhllo," hls frlend ndvlsed. Hllton dld not nnawor. ????????*?? He found her In a fleld blnr.lng wlth ' a vlvld buruing s'ory of natan anl azolea-hlossoms. Shn saw hlm comlng towarda her, and atoop'ed down among the long grasses to hlde from hlm. Tho man wna Intoxicated wlth hla hungor for her, and caught her In hla arms wlth all hla pent-up love nnd posalon. "Klktt," he whispored, "I trled to slay away. I could not. Don't you undcr atand?" Ho wns holdlng her close to hlm now, nnd coverlng hor faro wlth a paa Blon of klBBoa. "I love you! T love you! I love you!" he began, murmurlng In her ear. Th? glrl's ayea wero, flxed full on hla face. Ho caught tho efllsh. searehlm? full jraze, and for a moment released her. Bhe stnoped to plck up thc scattered tblossoma that had fallon. Th? glrl shlvered, and her fnre grew euddenly whlte. "Qo 'way!" she crled. wlth nlmost an Implorlng noto ln her volce. "I don" wanter tell you. I thlnkg it hos' nod. No. I nod tell you?aevarythlng.

Nobody llg mo nr eount my fadder American, an' I thlng account thad I goln' hate all Amorlcans foraever, because my fadder vaery wlgged, becauso he mek my* modder Buf fer! And me? I suffer, too." A rrrayness had cropt over Hilton'a fnce. He felt auddenly weak and old. "You atill nod onderatand?" ahe nsked. Her hands had fallen from his now, nnd he had ataggered back a few paces. "Not yet!" he aald, falntly. "Then I tell you," Bhe sald. flrnily. "I nod llg J'ou because w'en you como here, someone thad know my modder w'en ahe allv?i polnt at you and eay: 'Thad your fadder!'" The allenro that wa? botween them now waa horrible. Il suddenly asBtimed a savogo mockery by the wlld Blngtng of a nlghtengalo whlch flnw over thelr hoada and trilled aloud Its song of glad neaa. Tho man could not speak. Ho atood looklng out In front of hlm wlth a pltlful look of horror, and only half comprehen alon on hla face. After awhlln tho glrl contlnued: "Flra' I think I will tell you.
