In a frank talk with Nina Harriet endeavors to show her Blondln a unworthln-ss. but It has little effect on the Infatuated girl.- On Richard Carter a Insistence. Harriet Is Installed aa mistress of the household, but find lng her position untenable, declares her intention of leaving. Richard makes an offer of mariiare. aa a wit out of the situation, but Harriet, considering; such a thing impossible while Mrs. Carter (though divorced) la still alive, refuses. and leavea the house. To her old-fash' toned Ideas, the fact that Richard Carter haa been granted a divorce from hla err lng wife does not free him from hla max. Ital tlea, and marriage with him Is lm possible. "TTss she been here very mnchT' Hsrrlet said, after a momfnt. "Oh. lots ! She loves to be here, and I can't think mhy." Mm said, Mbe- caae people are all crazy to get her. and fhe could go to the most wonderful dinners and thing. Hut she really . Just like a girl, herself; sometimes we burnt light out laughing, because we think exactly the same about things! And she just loves picnic, and to let her hair down and she's so funny! Touil Just love her when you know her " Nina. Ilsrrlet reflected, had had a thorough dose of poison. It would take, like many dlseses, more poison to cure her, a counter dose. Going to her room to change to one of the new gowns, Harriet had a moment of contempt for the new-found Intimate, who could so unscrupulously play upon the girl's hungry soul. But with this situation It was possible to cope ; there was defi nite comfort In the fact that Nina had not mentioned Uoyal Hlondin." Brave In the new gown, whose lus- terless black velvet made even more brilliant her matchless skin. Harriet went to find Wsrd. She met. Instead, one of his house-guests, Corey Katon. a man some years older than Ward, a big. rawhoned. unscrupulous youth. with a wild and Indiscriminate laugh. "Mr. Katon.w Harriet said, in an un dertone, making another strategic de cision, "come in here to the library, will you? I want to speak to you." "When you speak to me thus,- said Corey Eaton, passionately. "I can re fuse you naught! But he sobered Instantly Into tre mendous gravity at Harriet's first con fidence. She told him simply of Isa belle's death. "Well, that surely is rotten the, poor old boy P said Corey, affectionate ly. "Ward's mad about his mother. tool eu. say, what do you know about that? Well beat It, Miss Field. Nixon and L We came in my car, and wall go to the Jays' for dinner. Say. that ia tough, though. lent ltr It was not eloquent, but It was sln- cere, and Harriet made her thanks to personal aTid " o Muttering that tEe youug man could only fervently push his plans for departure, swearing se crecy, aBl evidently touched by being taken ln- ll'r confidence. The fast nesses were yielding one after another- Harriet could have laughed as she left him at the foot of the stairs. Bot tomry, b'ltl.-r, respectfully ad dressed lr MS turliel back Into the hall: "Miss Field, I wonder if you'd be so good r She nodded, and accompanied hlra Instantly Into the puntry, where they could be alone. "It's Madame." said llottomley, bit terly, "she's Just 'ud me up there agine. It's really tryl" that's what it la. It's tryln'!- "Now, Just wait one moment, Bot tomley." Harriet s-aid, soothingly. "I want to talk to you and Pilgrim. Is she in ber room? Suppose we go there?" Pleased with the consideration In her manner, the outraged Bottomley led the way. The housekeeper was enjoying a solitary cup of tea; she bustled hospitably for more cups. "I want to tell you that your comln has taken a load oft my soul," said Pilgrim, a gray, round-vlsaged woman who had a sentimental heart, "and so I said to Mr. Tarter not three days since! It's been very bad. Indeed. Miss, since you went, as we was teliln you a bit back. Impudence, orders this way and that, confusion and what not. and Mr. Ward very wild, really very wild, and so at last llot toniley said he couldn't stand It." "I'm hoping he will reconsider that," Harriet said, pleasantly, with a glance at the face Bottomley tried to make Inflexible. "For I'm going to tell you two old friends some news." With no further preamble Harriet an nounced Isabella's death. The servants were naturally shocked. There were a few moments of ejaculatory and sorrowful surprise. When this had died away, Harriet had more news. Tm going to tell you two some thing." she began. "You are the very first to know, and I know you'll be glad. Before I left the house last Oc tober, Mr. Carter did me the the great honor to ask me to to marry him." It gave her Inward delight even to rolce It; It made the miracle seem more real. Bottomley and Pilgrim ex changed stupefied glances In a dead silence. "I met him at eleven o'clock today,' Harriet finished, simply, "ana we drove to Oreenwlch in Connecticut and we were married at one o'clock." Bottomley and PUgrlm glanced again at each other, glanced at Har riet, opened their mouths slowly. "To think of you beln Mrs. Carter V Pilgrim nmrveled In a whisper. "Oh. sh-sh-sh ! Tou mustn't say It even !" Harriet caught both their hands. "No one must know. I only told you so that you would help me. so that you would understand! There will be no change, anywhere " Bottomley shook a dazed bead; but Pilgrim looked at the other woman with kindly eyes, and presently said: Too'd have been a very silly girl not to take him, and as I always tell the glrls lovell come fast enough aft erward P The words came back to Ilarriet, hours later, when the house was quiet. and when, comfortably wrapped In loose sUk robe, she was musing be side her fire. Nina was asleep; to Ward, whe was headachy and fever ish, she had paid a late visit Madame Carter bad not come down to dinner, and when Harriet had sent In a mes sage, bad asked to be excused frore any calls, even from Nina and Mis? FleM. this venfnr. IVIna had chattered constantly dur ing the meal. Granny had had a ter rible time with them all. And Ward and Nina and "Royal" the name sud denly leaed between them again- had been arrested for speeding. And Daddy had threatened Nina with a boarding school, and Granny had cried. "Where is Mr. Blondln now, Nina?" Harriet had asked. "Oh, he's round!" Nina had said. airily. "I suppose you put Iaddy up to saying that I wasn't to see so much of him!" she had added, with her worldly wise drawj. "Not at all." Harriet bad said. "Ladybird and I are planning a trip." Nina had further confided. "I shall be eighteen in February, yon know, and we want to go round the world. Wouldn't it be wonderful to go with her, for she's been about fifty times !" "Wonderful!" Harriet had been obliged to concede. "But, dearest child, what does your father think?" "Father " Nina had shrugged re gretfully. "But I shall be of age I" ahe had reminded her comjanion. "Yes. I know, dear, but Father's ward for another three years, you know!" Why. ladybird says" the girl had been ready, and had spoken with flushed cheeks "ladybird says that In that case we'll go anyway, and she'll pay all exienses! That's the kind of friend she Is V "Love'H come fast enough after ward I" Pilgrim had said, and Harriet thought Pilgrim was rather a wise woman. In her homely way. The girl stirred the fire and settled herself to watch it. , After what? Well, certainly not after anything so short, simple and unconvincing as that three minutes with the clergyman today. The utter unreality of that had seemed to blend Yrto 3 - - - a. smsst ju mw irivic-r I u, stw--iaT - ?
