Gibraltar, ’tis true, but what woman was ever as strong as GP braltar? It has been a three-year siege, with no sign of the retreat of the besieg ing party. Once there was a sullen cessation, while be Max sulked in Paris, and Mrs. Gouraud said to her friends in New York: "1 don t expect to ever see him again." But that was not for long. Mrs. Gouraud returned to Paris. M. be Max renewed the siege. , Effective ammunition in the siege Is a similarity of tastes. Twice barbed Is this arrow of Cupid's. Mrs. Gouraud lived for two y»ars in the dim mystery of the hast, and in memory of these years surrounds herself with Japanese screens. In dian draperies and Turkish rugs and statues of Buddha.

M Dc Max possesses the lure of the stage. Storeover. bis place in that world ol make-believe Is an honored one. He has long been* accounted the fort most tragedian of France. The errors we have committed. It we are wise, we oo not repeal. Mrs. Gouraud. at her third marriage, wedded a man >ounger than herself and in moments of pensivencss con fessed that this was an error, carry ing in Its core the penalty of sorrow and disillusion.
