terror of her hysterical outbursts. Not
that Celia Cameron is noisy in her at
tacks, but her silent and prolonged
weeping wears more 1 think upon one's
nerves. Her husband spoiled her by
his unreasoning devotion, and Douglas
was forced to continue the slavery.
Pardon me, my dear, much as I love
Celia Cameron, slavery is the word
which expresses her exactions. And
when It became evident that Douglas
was paying attention to yourself, my
conscience chided me for being the
means of bringing you together. It is
bonest of him to ask you to spend a
few weeks at his home in his mother's
fretful society before urging you to be
come engaged to him. He certainly
wants you to know what you are about,
and from what Huldab White told me
of her'experience as nurse there I
can foresee that your visit will be de
cidedly short. You have neither Hul
flah's patience nor endurance. You've
always been humored yourself, Dollie.

Dollie clasped her arms about her
curly head, and into the china-blue

as he met his sweetheart at the
suburban station and'drove her out to
his fine old home.
"Mother," he gently announced.
"Dollie will visit with you in the gar

you send her away."
Dollie agreed with a doubtful winlie
as the son departed.
"I get tired of talking myself," she
told the Invalid sadly, "it ruffles my

leaned eagerly forward.
"My doctor forbids the subject, and
the nurses were like sticks when I
ventured a thought. It will be com
forting at leus't to talk to one who sym
pathetlcully understands. Douglas
ever told ine that you also suffer from

sights, and crying turns, and".

me," the Invalid replied.
"But how?" Dollie persisted.
"Miss White used to tell me stories,"
she said at last.
Dollie reclined again with a relieved

tell me a story now about Douglas,
