"Thero's moro'n ono kind of sick ness, Gorry. Ain't you over learned that? Perhaps It don't coma In books, but thero's a kind of sickness of the mind and heart, too, I guess, what Is worse than all tho fevers and other pnlns folks have. You see they havo doctors when yon break a leg, or git somo disease, but thero ain't no ono going to doctor your mind when that's sick not that I know of." "You mean that ltobcrt's mind ts sick?" "Perhaps porhaps not. Uut when folks, 1 don't much earn If they arv men or women, get their minds fixed on something they can't have, Just as likely os not they get something they ought not to have, that they ain't got any business wanting." "Y'ou ore a queer girl, Mary. You seem to think Itobcrt la not con tented. Mary only smiled nnd asked mo o tell her about that new girl 1 had mot, Marlon I Covey. "She's very pretty, und on accom plished housokecpor If Hobe.rl nnd tho rest are to bo believed." "Itobert talked about that her housekeeping and her cooking?" "Yes, I acused him of always thinking of food." to take mo homo with her. I met her Just ns I loft thn store, and wo walked along together, Sho told me what sho was going to havo for din ner, and when I s-ald It sounded mighty good to me. sho told mo to pome along and 'have somo If I could. I know you wouldn't miss mo In that noisy place downstairs. It 'would bo different If you hao been alone, then 1 would not havn gone. Hut you havo plenty of com pany here so I trotted right along and had a good dinner, topped off with a delicious applo pie nnd ren coffee. Tho only part 1 didn't llko was that I couldn't bring you some." That last snntenco dissipated my feeling of Jealousy I might havo hnd ho had thought of me. "Never mind dear. I don't carw us much for apple plo ns you do, nnd Btrong coffeo keeps me awake." Ono evening when Itobert nnd I hnd been sitting quietly reading for somo time, ho surprised mo hy an exclamation of annoyance. "What's tho matter dear? I thought you my book aside. "I don't know what alls me Gerry, I can't keep my mind fixed on my work. They boosted Glen's nalary today and never said a word to mu, although I really camo first In llnu for promotion. I can't seem to con contrato nny more. My thoughts go wool gathering nt Just tho wrong times." "Hut you were no enthusiastic when wo wore first engaged, so sure you wero going to get a big advance soon." Someway tho disappoint ment I felt showed in my voice, al though I had tried not to let itobcrt reallzo I wns disappointed, "I know, nnd well, Gerry, I guess some folks need something to make them work, and perhaps I'mn that kind. Kver since your lane ralso I keep thinking you earn moro than I do, nnd that you can have what you want without my help, and It seems to tnko all my ambition away. It's silly I know, but well 1 mil going to get over It someway, but 1 don't Just know how." "I should say you wero silly! Knowing I earn such a good salary should make you moro ambitious. ".Men do qulto a lot," sho re turned then changed tho subject. Wo often had little chats during tho day. now that wo wore not so busy. And always Mary would bring In somethlntr about a homo or Ilobori. Now oven though I was nblo to get home qulto early Itobert was often late. Occasionally ho did not como In to dinner, but would tele phone mo not to wait. "Whoro hnvo you bpen, drar? I asked ono evening when ho had no, been In to dinner, "Whero did you havo dinner?" "Marlon Hovpy was good onough The Young Lady Across the Way I You don't want a woman to get ahead of you do you?" "No yet I guess It Is a good thing you can make money, Gerry I don't seem to bo ablo to." I saw ho was discouraged and tried to phepr him up. Yet all the time In tho buck of my mind was n feeling of chagrin becnuso he was Inadequate, becauso ho acknowl idgcd It. To Ho Continued.
