''Yes, I knew everything. Ask your self why I risk everything to say this to you? There «.-an lie only one answer." Then, after n long silence, "Have I she began tremblingly—"ever sîon his he In man her. that such the first She don't for fell she you to ry. you to a ever, by word or look"— No. "Have I even''— "No. I've slihply discovered how I That's what I was dreaming 1 was feel. about when you asked me. afraid I might do this too soon, but I meant to do It anyway before It be came too late." "It was too late from the very mo ment we met, Mr. SIward.' And, aa he reddened painfully again, ahe ad led quickly, "I mean that I bad already decided. And, as he Ta'ld nothing: "You were a little rough, a little sudden with me, Mr. SIward. Men have asked me that question—several times, but never so loon, so unreasonably soon — never without some preliminary of some sort, bo that I could foresee—be more or less prepared. But you gave me no warn ing. I—if you hnd I would have known how to be gentle. I—I wish to be now." V Still he said nothing. He sat there listlessly Btudylng the sun spots glow ing, waxing, waning, on the carpet of dead leaves at Ills feet. "As fou what you have said," she r Added, a little smile curving the sensi tive mouth, "It Is Impulsive, uncon Tldered, a trifle boyish, Mr. SIward. 1 Vy myself the compliment of your Bicerlty. It is rather nice to be a ■•girl who can awaken the romance In a man within a day or two's acqualnt tVe shall not misunderstand ance. each other again, shall w%.'" He raised his head, considering her, forcing the smile to meet her own. "We shall be better friends than ever," she asserted confidently. "Yes, better than ever." "Because Xvhat you have done means the nicest sort of friendship, you see. You can't escape Its duties nnd re sponsibilities now, Mr. SIward. I shnll expect you to spend the greater part of your life in devotedly doing things for me. Besides, 1 am now privileged to worry you with advice. Oh, you have invested me with all sorts of powers now!" He nodded. She sprang to her feet, flushed, smil ing. a trifle excited. "I* it all over, and are we the very ideals of friends?" she asked. "The very ideals." "You are nice!" she said impulsively, bolding out both gloveless hands. He held them, she looking at him very sweetly, very confidently. "And you are content?" persunslvely. "Of course not," he said. "Then I am sorry for you. Look at that!" turning her left hand in his so that the jewel on the third finger caught the light. "I see it." "And yet"— "And yet" "That," she observed, with compo sure, "is sheer obstinacy. How can you really care for me? Do you actually believe that devotion comes like that?" "Exactly like that." "So suddenly? It is impossible!" with a twist of her pretty shoulders. "How did it come to you?" he asked between his teeth. Then her face grew scarlet, and her eyes grew dark, and her bands con tracted in his— t1 g htened, twisted fingers entangled, un til, with a little sob, she sway ed toward him, and he caught her. An instant, a minute—more perhaps she did not know—she half lay in his arms, her un taught llpselose * against his.

He had fçped her. She remembered that somebody had asked him to—per haps herself. That was well. She needed to breathe, to summon strength and common sense, find out what had been done, what reasonless madness 8he had committed Jn the half I'ght of the silver stemmed treetf clustering shameful witness on every Rand, ddenly the hot humilinH° n of whelmed her. and she entered her with her hands, standing, almost ylng. as wave on wave of incredu lous shame seemed to sweep her from knee to brow. That phase passed after awhile. Out of it she emerged flushed, outwardly composed, into another phase, in full self possession once more, able to understand what had happened without the disproportion of emotional exaggeration. After all. she had only been kissed. Besides, she was a novice, which probably account ed In a measure for the unreasonable emotion coincident with a caress to which she was unaccustomed. With out looking up at him she found herself saying coolly enough to surprise her self: "I never supposed I was capable of that. It appears that I am. I haven't anything to aay for myself ex cept that I feel fearfully humiliated. Don't say anything now. 1 do not blame you; truly I do not It waa con temptible of me— to do It—wearing this"— She stretched out her slender left hand; not looking at him. "It was contemptible!" She slowly raised her «yes, summoning all her courage to face him. .

And as his face fell, then hardened Into brightness. Instantly she divined how he rated her and In a fluiîh realized her weapons and her security and that the control of the situation was hers, not In the control of this Irresolute young man who stood so silently considering her. Strange that she should be ashamed of her own Innocence, willing that he believe her accomplished In such arts, enchanted that he no longer perhaps suspected genuine emotion In the swift, confused sweetness of bar first kiss. "Why do you take It so serlouslyT' She said, laughing and studying him, certain now of herself In this new dis guise. "Do you take It lightly?" he asked, striving to smile. "I? As I must you know. You don't expect to marry me, do you, Mr. SIward?" "I"— He choked up at that grimly for awhile. Walking slowly forward together she fell Into step frankly beside him, near him—too near. "Try to be sensible," she was saying gayly. "I like you so much, and It would be horrid to have you mope, you know. And. besides, even If I cared for you there are rea sons, you know—reasons for any girt to marry the man I am going to mar ry. So, yon see, I could not marry you even If 1"—her voice was Inclined to tremble, but she controlled It; would she never learn her role?— "even If I loved you." Then her tongue stumbled and was silent, and they walked on side by side through the fading splendor of the year, exchanging no further speech. Townrd sunset their guide hailed them, standing high among the rocks, a silhouette against the sky. And be yond him they saw the poles crowned with the huge nests of the flshhawks, marking the Inst rendezvous at Osprey Ledge. rall |(Uy ft y| to tied the tail, shy ry si and edly you time give take but to good of Sold for a of CHAPTErM^Î] Vi Ê nvjE, 5 HE week pnssed Bwiftly, day after day echoing with the steady fusillade from marsh to covert, from valley to ridge. Lord Alderdene, good enough on snipe and cock, was driven almost fran tic by the ruffed grouse; Voucher did better for a day or two nnd theD lost the knack; Marlon Page attended to business In her cool and thorough style, and her average on the gun room books was excellent nnd was also adorned with clever pen and Ink sketches by SIward. Leroy Mortimer had given up shoot ing and established himself as a haunt er of cushions In sunny corners. Tom O'Hn T my of had gone back to Lenox; Mrs. VendSinlng. to Hot Springs. Beverly Plank, master of Black Fells, began to pervade the house after a tentative ap pearance, and he and Major Belwether pottered about the coverts, usually aft er luncheon, the latter doing little dam age with his fowling piece and nobody knew how much with his gossiping tongue. Quarrler appeared In the field methodically, shot with Judgment, tak ing no chances for a brilliant perform ance which might endanger his re spectable average. As for the Page boys, they kept the river ducks stir ring whenever El.'een Shannon and Rena Bonnesdel could be persuaded to share the canoes with them. Other wise they haunted the vicinity of those bored maidens, suffering snubs sor rowfully, but persistently faithful. They were a great nuisance in the evening, especially as their sister did not permit them to lose more than $10 a day at cards. Cards—that is, bridge and preference —ruled, ns usual, and the latter game, being faster, suited Mortimer and Fer rall, but did not aid SIward toward re couping his bridge losses. Two matters occupied him. Since cup day he had never had another op portunity to see Sylvia Landis alone; that was the first matter. He had touched neither wine nor spirits nor malt since the night Ferrall hnd found him prone, sprawling in a stupor on his disordered bed—that was the second matter, and it occupied him, at times required all his attention, particularly when the physical desire for It set in steadily, mercilessly, mounting inex orably like a tide. But, like the tide. It ebbed at last, particularly when a sleepless night bad exhausted him. He bad gone back to his shooting again after a cool review of the ethics Involved. It even amused him to think that a girl who had cleverness enough to marry muny millions, with Quarrler thrown In, could have so moved him to sentimentality. He had ceded the big cup of antique silver to Quarrler, too, a matter which troubled him little, however, as in the irrita tion of the reaction he hnd been shoot ing with the brilliancy of a demon, and the gunroom books were open to any doubting guests' inspection. Time, therefore, was never heavy on his bands save when the tide threat ened—when at night he stirred and awoke, conscious of Its crawling ad vance, aware of Its steady mounting menace; moments at table when the of wine made him catch his to is a of of she she to I ex not was her to % In It aroma breath; momenta In the gunroom redo lent of spicy spirits, a maddening vola tile fragrance clinging to the card room too. filled with auch momenta for him. But afield the desire faded, and even during the day Indoors he shrugged dé lire aside. It was night that be dread ed—the long hours, lying there tense, stark eyed, sickened with desire. As for Sylvia, the and Grace Ferrall had taken to motoring, driving away Into the Interior or taking long flights Qortb and south alfihg the c œ»t Bfiffif Yes, the long days were times they took Quarrler; sometimes, when Mrs. Ferrall drove, they took In ballast In the shupe of a superfluous Page boy and a girl for him. Once Grace Ferrall asked SIward to Join them; but, no definite time being set, he was scarcely surprised to find them gone when he returned from a morn ing on the snipe meadows. And Syl via, leagues away by that time, curled up In the tonneau beside Grace Fcr rnll, watched the dark plues flying past, cheeks pink, eyes like stars, while the rushing wind drove health Into her and care out of her, cleansing, purifying, overwhelming winds flowing through and through her till her very soul within her seemed shining through the beauty of her eyes.
