Two weeka later one night Emmy tiptoed in the connecting drees lngroom and softly called Aunt Kate, and when the klmonoed lady appeared flung herself on the ample* boaom and cried joyously, "Aunt Kate we're engaged. Look!" She displayed an immense aolltarlre on her finger. "Ta Tk.^JaH. a uu.iaett Mki. iu i uauucuB auuuui hhubpered Aunt Kate, Juat to make aure. Emmy, glowingly happy nodded. But Emmy's cup of Joy ran over when ' a week later Thaddeua Abbott laid In hor hands a small velvet box. , "Not diamond buckles!" panted Emmy as ahe viewed the glittering coveted ornaments. "Ob!" and pressed tbe cold dazzling atones to her warm Hps. If sh^hid any murmuring doubts now she was sure that Thaddeus Abbott was her real prince for everlasting happiness. She could scarcely wait to thank him and rush to her room to show Aunt Kate and Uncle Dave this emblem of her happiness, the Realization of her fondert dream, for they knew what diamond buckles had always meant in Emmy's life. She hastened to the connecting dressing room, Aunt Kate's name^on her lips, but waited when she'heard the word "diamond buckles" mentioned. "You told him, Dave, what Importance Emmy attached to them?" questioned her aunt, "and he laughed about it? That wasn't very nice, but?" a "I Insisteded," Uncle Dave emphasized. "I could have shaken the fellow, putting It off from dayj to day. This morning I cornered him all right. He said he lost all ;his money In the game last night ?another thing I don't like?so,I Kate, I went out and bought those, diamond buckles and told him to! give them to her." \ Emmv sat In her room In tbe! dark for a long time. It was as1 If suddenly everything was strip-' ped of artificiality and fivery and there remained only the truth, bare and startling. The intoxicating excitement of the novelty of the unaccustomed surroundings left her; she felt very sobdr and?' homesick. She saw herself as a fortune hunter, grasping for the material, not considering the real worth of character. Thaddeus Abbott, stripped of adornment and affectedness, was but a gambler. "Uncle Dave," whispered Emmy the next morning, "I'm sorry toj leave you this way?I've written | Mr. Abbott a little note, and here ?" she pressed the velvet case In J his hand?"I know you and Aunt: Kate will understand." A very quiet Emmy threw her-1 self in her mother's arms that! night. "I couldn't go through \ with it. Mummie?1 want realj happiness!" "After all I'm glad you. want! that and not money," smiled her mother understanding^. It was only a few nights later I when Kminy and Johnny O'CJon-i nor sat on the porch swing dis-1 :ussing the next family picnic in view. when a lull in the conversation gave Johnny the opportunity to say ruther embarrassingly. Before you went away, Emmy, I bought you a little present?not much, but I thought?" He drew a pasteboard box from his pocket and laid it in her open palm. Emmy raised the lid and there on a neat white card were pinned two diamond slipper buckles! Not real diamonds, of course, but dazzling imitations. "Oh, Johnny!" was all Emmy could say in a clouded, trembling Marriage Ship I liCKLEY >. j / 1 I So to the office to show his haggard face, to explain what * had happened. He stayed home, putting in an endless day of torment. As he Bat, head In bandB and numb with misery, the sound of a key In the lock sent him trembling to his feet. "Connie! Oh my *lrl?" But Connie stood there.,,without her bag, quite cold, unrepentIng, eren disapproving, regarding him steadly. Fred fell back the recation of his joy sending him into a sort of choking rage. How could Connie stand there unmoved before the haggard man she had dragged through a night of hell?a man whose only thought was to make a home and future lor ner: how could she! Good God, sheNvasn't worth suffering for?In dumb agony he waited for her to speak. "I have been to Mr. Steward's" said Connie, her words coming in little clicks, "and have asked him all about this Barrlnger matter?" "Oh, you have? How delicate of you!" It did not seem like Fred speaking, but as though another personality, hard and cold, bad taken'possession of him. * "The man 1 married was about to ruin his associates and I had no call to be 'delicate.'

He means to notify the police his name is being used In what he Is convinced is an enormous swindle. I only came to tell you that." She turned with just one more word. "Good by." (To Be Continued.)
