Nothing said I and I compelled
her to meet my gaze
She drew a lung breath and I
thought there was a solo In itlike
frightened child
But I repeat I went on that If
you wish It I shall never try to see
you again Do you wish It
Idontknow she answered
slowly I thinknot
As she spoke the last word she lift
ed her eyes to mine with a look of
forced friendliness In them that Id
rather not have seen there I wished
to bo blind to her defects to the stains
and smutches with
which her
roundings must have sullied her And
that friendly look
seemed to me an
unmistakable hypocrisy In obedience
to her mother However It had the
effect of bringing her nearer to my
own earthly level of putting mo at
ease with her and for tho few remain I
Ing minutes we talked freely I Indlf
ferent whether my manners and
versation were correct As I helped
her Into their carriage I pressed her
arm slightly and said In a voice for
her only Until tomorrow
At five the next day I rang the El
lonslys bell was taken through the
drawing room into that same library
The curtains over the double doorway
between the two rooms wero almost I
drawn She presently entered from
tho hall I admired the picture she
made In the doorway her big hat her
embroidered dress of white cloth and
that small sweet cold faco of hers
And as I looked I know that nothing
nothingno not even her wish
command could slop rue from trying
to make her my own That
must havo shown In my facet or the
passion that inspired Itfor she
paused and paled
What Is It I asked Are you
afraid of me
Sho camo forward proudly a line
No she said

might bo afraid
But if you knew you
of me
I am afraid of
I confessed

How eagerly

coarsely insensible to
bad Impressions of one we do like

I heard voices In tho noxt room
her mothers and some mans Wo
waited until it was evident wo woro
not to bo disturbed As I realized
that fact and surmised Its meaning I
looked triumphantly at her
I see you are nerving yourself
said I with a laugh You aro perfect
ly certain I am going to propose to
She flamed scarlet and halfstarted
Your motherIn the next room
expects It too I went on laughing
even more disagreeably Your par
ents need money they have decided
to sell you their only large income
producing asset And I am willing to
buy What do you say
I was blocking her way out of the
room Sho was standing her breath
coming fast hor eyes blazing You
are frightful I she exclaimed In a
low voice
Because I am frank because I am
honeat Because I want to put things
on a sound basis I suppose If I
camo lying and pretending and let you
lie and pretend and let your parents
and Sam Ho and pretend you would

friends those ladles and gentlemen
I But when theres business to be trans
acted I am businesslike Lets not
begin with your thinking you are de
ceiving me and so hating me and de
spising mo and trying to keep up the
deception Lets begin right
Sho was listening sho was no
longer longing to fly from tho room
she was curious I knew I had scored
In any event I continued you
would have married for money Youve
been brought up to It like all these
girls of your set Youd be miserable
without luxury If you had your choice
between love without luxury and lux
ury without love Itd be as easy to
foretell which youd do as to foretell
how a starving poet would choose be
tween a loaf of bread and a volume of
poems You may love love but you
love life jour kind of lifebetter
She lowered her head It Is true
sho said It Is low and vile but it Is
Your parents need money I be
gan She stopped me with a gesture
Dont blame them sho pleaded
am more guilty than they
I was proud of her as sho made
that confession You have the mak
ing of a real woman in you said I
I should have wanted you even If you
hadnt But what I now see makes
what I thought a folly of mine look
nan like wisdom
T must warn you she said und
now she was looking directly at me
I shall never love you
Never Is a long time replied I
Im old enough to bo cynical about
I shall never love you sho re
peated For many reasons you
wouldnt understand For ono you
will understand
I understand tho many reasons
you Hay are beyond me said I For
dear oung lady under this coarse ex
tenor i assure you Hideos hidden a I
rather sharp outlook on human na
ture and well nerves that respond
to the faintest changes in you ns do
mine cant be altogether without SOP
sltlveniss Whats the other reason
the reason That you think you bpve
some one else
Thank you for saying It for me
bloc icplfud
You cant Imagine how pleased 1
was at having earned her gratitude
oven in BO little n matter I havo
thought of that said I It Is of no
But you dont understand aho
pleaded earnestly
On the contrary I understand pen
fectly 1 assured her And tho rea
son I am not disturbed isyou are
here you are not with him
She lowered hor head so that I had
no view of her face
You and ho do not marry I went
on because you are both poor
No she replied
Because ho does not caro for you
Nonot that sho said
Because you thought he hadnt
enough for two
A long pause thenvery faintly
Nonot that
Then It must bo because ho hacnt
as much money as hed like and must
find a girl wholl bring him what ho
most wants
She was silent
That Is while he loves you dearly
ho loves money moro And lies will
ing to seo you go to another man bo
tho wife of another man bo every
thing to another man I laughed
Ill take my chances against love of
that sort
You dont understand silo mar
mured You dont realize there aro
many things that mean nothing to you I
and that meanoh so much to people
brought up as wo are
Nonsense said I What do you
moan by we Nature has been bring
ing us np for a thousand thousand
years A few years of silly false train
Ing doesnt undo her work If you and
he had cared for each other you
wouMn bo hero apologizing for his
selfish vanity
No matter about him she cried
Impatiently lifting her head haught
ily The point is I love himand
always shall I warn you
And I take you at my own risk I
Her look answered Yes
Wel1I took her handthen
wo are engaged
Her whole body grew tense and her
hand chilled as It lay In mine Dont
please dont I said gently Im
not so bad as all that If you will be
as generous with me as I shall be
with you neither of us will ever re
gret this
There were tears on her cheeks as
I slowly released her hand
I shall ask nothing of you that you
are not ready freely to give I said
Impulsively sho stood and put out
her hand and the eyes she lifted to
mine were shining and friendly I
caught her in my arms and kissed her
not once but many times And it
was not Until the chill of her Icelike
face had cooled me that I released
her drew back red and ashamed and
stammering apologies But her Inv
pulse of friendliness had been killed
she once more as I saw only too plain
ly felt for me that sense of repulsion
felt for herself that sense of selfdeg
I cannot marry you she mut
teed You canand willand must 1
cried Infuriated by her look
There was a long silence I could
easily guesa what was being fought
out Inher mind At last she slowly
drew herself up I can not refuse
she said and hor eyes sparkled with
defiance that had halo In It You
have the power to compel me Use
it like tho brute you refuse to let mo
forget that you are She looked sd
young so beautiful so angryand so
SoI shall I answered Children
have to be taught what Is good for
them Call In your mother and well
tell her tho news
Instead sho went into the next
room I followed saw Mrs Kllersly
seated at the teatable In the corner
farthest from the library where her
daughter and I had been negotiating
Wont you give us tea mother
said Anita on her surface not a traco
of the cyclone that must still havo
been raging In her
Congratulate mo Mrs Klleraly
said I Your daughter has consented
to marry mo
Instead of speaking Mrs Ellersly
began to cryreal tears And for d
moment I thought there was a real
heart Inside pf her somewhere But
when she spoke that delusion van
You must forgive me Mr BlacK
lock sho said In her hard smooth
polite voice It Is the shock of real
izing 1 Im about to lose my daughter
And I know that her tears were from
Joy and relief Anita had come up to
the scratch the hideous menace of
genteel poverty had been averted
Do give us tea mamma said
Anita Her cold sarcastic tone cut my
nerves and her mothers like a razor
blade I looked sharply at her and
wondered whether I was not making a
bargain vastly different from tlmt my
passion was picturing

Benefits from New Law Which Re
mains Substantially Unchanged
Through tho Influence of Gov
Hughes the New York Legislature do
tided to make no radical changes In
tho new insurance law It was pointed
out by Gov Hughes that the Now York
law has already accomplished wide
spread reforms with proportionate
benefits to pollcyholdors and that It
should be given a thorough trial be
fore any amendments wero seriously
considered It Is estimated that tho
cost of the mismanagement of tho past
did not average more than 20 cents to
each policyholder whllo the benefits
to present and future policyholders
will amount to many times moro and
be cumulative besides The speed
craze of tho big companies and the ex
cessive cost of securing now business
was tho most extravagant evil of the
old managements Under the new
regime the cost of now business has
already been greatly reduced along
with other economics
The showing made by the Equitable
Life Assurance Society In Its report
for 190C was n strong argument
against meddling with the new law
in the Equltablo alono thoro was a
saving of over 2000000 In expenses
besides an Increase In tho income
from the Societys assets amounting
to as much more The ratios of the
Equitables total expenses to its total
Income was 1942 In 1901 1738 in
1905 and only 1448 In 1906 The
dividends paid to Equitable policy
holders In 190G amounted to 7289734
which was an Increase of more than
9 over 1905
While the Equltablo made a better
showing than any other big company
all reported radical economics and un
der such conditions tho Legislature
wisely decided to leave the law sub
stantially as It stands
Forgetting Something
When the train that convoyed Pros
Idont Roosevelt through Virginia on
his last trip south stopped at Char
lottesvllle a negro approached the
presidents car and passed aboard a
big basketful of fine fruit to which
was attached the card of a prominent
grower I
In course of time the orchardlst ro
celved a letter of acknowledgment
from the White House expressing the
presidents appreciation of the gift
and complimenting the donor upon hit
fruit The recipient of the letter was
of course greatly pleased and feel
Ing sure that his head gardener would
bo much interested In the letter ho

served in the capacity mentioned lis

Tea drinking frequently affects peo
ple as badly as coffee A lady In Salis
bury Md says that she was com
pelled to abandon the use of coffee a
good many years ago because It
threatened to ruin her health and that
sho went over to tea drinking but
finally she had dyspepsia so bad that
sho had lost twentyfive pounds and
no food seemed to agreo with her
She further says As this time I
was induced to take up tho famous
food drink Postum and was so much
pleased with the results that I have
never been without It since I com
menced to improve at once regained
my twentyfive pounds of tlcsh and
went some beyond my usual weight
I know Postum to be good pure
and healthful and there never was an
article and never will bo I believe
that does so surely take the place ot
coffee as Postum Food Coffee The
beauty of it all is that It Is satisfying
and wonderfully nourishing I feel as
If I could not sing Its praises too loud
