l v y EING a True Story of a Marriage Intended To
Be Only a Mere Easiness Partnership and What
Problems Grew Out of It
HIS is a tru tory It might be entitled
THIS Fell in Love with Her Husband for
that Is piecisoly what ono wife did Tho
man in the case who of course cannot bo
named here is a national figure He is tnlented
wealthy and is still advancing in his chosen
vocation The wife who tells the story for these
columns has written her romance In such
style that all her friends and those of hor hus
band Nwill rocognlzo them both at once and
no doubt will bo amazed by tho truo story she
now tells

T Is n lone story and In some respects a curious
one There Is n theory that nn heiress no mnttor
Low stupid or hopelessly ugly she may happen to
be Is surfeited with matrimonial offers If this be
tray I must prove the exception to the rule for though
en heiress to a handsome fortune and by no moans a
plain woman I here never received a proposal of mar
But to start at the beginning of the story My
father and mother were vqry plain people The
former began life as a section boss and my mother
cooked the meals for the hands As you may know a
section boss is the head of a gang of mon who build
or repair railroads To bo a success he needs strength
of hand ns well ns coolness of Judgment and uu un
limited vocabulary of profanity Father could be
classed ns a poslgrndualo In these requirements but
though he was rude of speech and bearing ho bad a
keen mind and nn Indomitable perseverance the kind
that gets there i
Ills one lesson to me was If 1 wanted a thing to
first make up my mind if It was1 really worth while If
GO then get it despite man and the dovll This may
seem an extraordinary doctrine to preach to a girl but
It bore good fruit
My mother died at my birth At that time my
father was investing nearly every dollar of his wages
In timber lands and when he died many years later
ho was known as the lumber king of tho Southwest
Meanwhile he had established the family home lu
Corslcnna Texas nnd as his fortune lircrcascd HIP
house and grounds spread out In ever increasing
magnitude and Juxury From tho first ho carried out
a definite plan of educating me T learned tho rudi
ments In Corslcuua progressed lo n boarding school
In Washington thence to n fashionable finishing school
In New York and was then given a year In Europe
I came out of this n well bred well groomed young
woman with absolutely no knowledge of men ns my
acquaintance with the opposite sex had boon limited
to School dance and I was too quiet to have ever
been rushed No one has over told me whether 1
can lay claim to beauty I am tall and straight and
I know how to wear tho expensive clotbos that bun
always como my way 1 have a quantity of dark
wavy hair graybluo eyes with black ashes and fine

When John Came In 1 Found Myself Telling Him T
Woo Crying Because No One In the VVorJdLoved Me
teeth I urn not talkative In fact abhor the small tall
of drawing rooms I am placid rather than enthusi
astic many call me stolid and my father Inculcated
hi me his own practical view of life null a line appro
rlatlou of the power of wealth
Soon after my return to Corelcnna from Europe ray
father died and my mourning afforded an excuse to
v escape the tiresome social nffnlrs of u small town In
consequence I knew nothing of tho younger set or
their merrymaking Aside from a dally ride or drive
I secluded myself at homo trying to grasp the details
of the vast business willed to me My only recreation
was my music I play rather well and father hnd
built for me a magnificent music room
The lawyer John Truston whom my father had cm
loycd lu his lifetime to look after his legal affairs
was named aa executor nod In course of the adJust
tncnt of the estate It was necessary for mo to confer
with him frequently I developed a fair amount of
business ability but It was sometimes dllHcull for me
to grasp tho technicalities of tho law At these times
Trujjton would patiently elucidate obscure points and
Klvo unsparingly of his tlmelllt ho wos thoroughly
Impersonal In his attitude and gave no recognition of
the fact that I was young rich nod not nn unattractive
Owner of Great Wealth
Not that I uollced this ut the lime My ego loomed
larger than anything else I was n groat lady and
the richest person in tho little Toxins town nnd I en
Joyed tho mantle of Importance that my nthor had
relegated mo ma I really felt an Jinmonea prldu In
Ute groaturtuac that evidenced my fathers ability
nnd I Avt k fbjj ttj cfjudniip his work liven hind I not
heen thoroughly ciin9eid ulna inv own nfiiilr and
had wakened to Trustona nttractions was a hand
some man of ihlrtytwo with line intellect and a
gift ofpocch that had scored in public his aloof
ness would have repelled mo If possible he was
more absorbed In his affairs lImn I In mine
I was sole heir to my fathers estate and his will
enjoined mo not to sacrifice any of his holdings The
ever Increasing scarcity of lumber not only advanced
my property to enormous values but made tho direc
tion of my bublness affairs nn arduous undertaking
for mo I determined to got married
1 did not arrive nt this decision hastily but after
considering nl length the sham of reasoning laid down
by my father before his death I was twcntyllvo
years old alone In the world with over accumulating
properties I needed n protector ns well as a huslness
manager Ihc sensible thing to do was obvious I
must marry some one and feeling no need of looking
furl her I decided upon John Truston Father had
proved him lo be honest and he had my affairs nl his
finger tips
Down In the section house where T was born there
wns a dearth of the liner SMtslbllltles and my up
bringing hnd not eradicated the pine knot methods of
my people Isnt for Tohn Truslon and asked him
lo enter Into n life partnership with me
I shall never forget his panic stricken apologetic
Rut let me describe for you this strange rqyor al
of the code of courtship My home t shows no crudi
ties in the quiet clccrnnce of Its appointments This
Is especially true of the library where T always re
ceived Truston lie hnd unbent once find expressed
admiration for the room while his eyes roamed long
ingly over the well filled book shelves I directed
that as usual ho should he sent to the library and
though I was too hopelessly burdened with common
sense 10 resort to nny striving for effect It was with
satisfaction that I saw my rellectlon softened by tho

glow from the wood tire I looked young strong and
womanly and the severe folds of my wlills gown
enhanced the pliancy of my figure
Truston came In with the glow of health lighting
his flue features and I felt reassured that what 1
was nbout lo do was for my best Interest Here was
t sane healthy man who had proven his honesty and
ability and I certainly would not know where to look
to find another so well fitted as he to handle my nf
Ill Its
Without n tremor and with no feeling of hesitancy
I laid the matter before ohm At the lime It seemed
nothing unusual But never never mover could I
do such n thing again Now when the cool monotony
of my words recurs lo me my face tingles with the
blush of shame

AhAstonished Gasp Was Trustons Reply He
Was Fairly Speechless
Mr Truston I eaihl want to take a partner
n mini who can direct my public and private Inter
ests In a way my father would approve of As you
know my fortune Is Increasing to unwieldy propor
tions find 1 am not competent to manage It alone In
taking this partner 1 also want to free myself fromv
possible fortune hunters so I Vive sere dd to marry
him Will you be that partner
An astonished gasp Was Tnutons reply DC wns
fairly speechless With smiling composure f
stemmed the tide of his first words When he recov
ered himself with manly directness he pointed out to
me that I was Indulging In a fantastic whims tfor
which I would suffer keen regret Inwardly he
doubtless thought mo bnwn but his every wY rd
breathed chivalrous Consideration nnd from thatmo
mejjt I entertained for him n friendly warmth of
feeling 1 had not experienced before
The Woman Wooes
I listened to his arguments I always let people
have their say Ile grew eloquent over the many rea
sons why we should not marry even telling me of the
love nffnir that had wrecked Ills life nnd his conse
quent dedication of Ito ambition He could not find
one good excuse for us to Join our lives bury hits word
failed to weaken my resolution I had made up my
mind to marry him and ns ho milked on my determina
tion strengthened and T prom bed myself that neither
twin nor devil should Intervene
We sat In the library that night until long after
pildnight nnd when John Truston left me our wedding
ding day was set for the following month I won my
ease by no subtle argument A logical statement of
the benellt wo both might derive from tile union was
the direct appeal I made to the clever lawyers rea
soning mind We talked is man to man I wnntctl
froidoiu from business cares that 1 might travel and
Indulge my muilcnl tnslos lie needed wealth to carry
