Aer Co John in the spirit, and Miss Estrilla, (or Margarita Perez) in the tlesh, to which this hocus-pocus was only an approach. John is speaking through the lips of Rosalie Le Grange; and Miss Estrilla is answering. "I am stronger now. The flesh in tluence is not yet pon? from me. There- was much on my sruil. I find it hard to forgive. And I know 1 must little, lady." Rosalie- had learned from Constance that "little lady" was Capt. Hanska's pet name for woman in tender relations, and she let it out as a venture. "(Mi. John! Hut consider how much I have to forpive. Ah. did you ever love me? You never answered my letters." "I loved you rrhaps too much. Over here, wo can not lie. I was car ried away and I was married " "Yes. Kvfry one knows that now. Vou deceived me. it is harder for mo to forgive that than the other thinp." "Yes ut I loved you too much to risk Telling you." "Was hat why you kept the jew els, then?" A hard attack came into Miss I'strilla's tone. It was more than a Muestion; there was irony in it. Ro salie thought lapidly. That diamond buckle on tho stair-cae "the jewels" here was a startling correlation of facts. She must venture no further; she must have time to imagine and to plan. "I can not tell you now." said the voice of John. "I am growing weak I sinned " " Mi. he's gone away!" broke in the voice of Laughing-Ryes. Another seance. John is speaking, Miss Lstrilla answering. "Ah. I really love you. Hut I find it hard to forgive." "Ion"t you understand, John, that it wasn't revenge. It was duty." "I know. There is much that I do not understand, but I do tinder stand that. In the rlesh. I was al ways attracted by the glitter of jew els " This was a lead into territory orJ.v partially explored. And the road opened. "?. think there were two parts of you, John. Rut. oh. the better part loed me. did it not?" "Yes. loved you truly, little lady." "John, if yor. had stolen them out right but to use my love!" "I am going. I am not strong enough yet to endure reproach " " Mi. 1 will not reproach you again. You mu.-T forgive. You know, how little you hae to forgive. Wait, John, wait!" John is speaking again: Miss Es trilla replies. "The gie me new strength every day. Hut tills poor ignorant woman is. weakening.

I had a letter from a married wom an today, in which she told me she had found that she and her husband were not atilnities she had outgrown him. Of course. I may not speak from experience, hut it se n.s to me that the married woman v'no Insists upon her husband doing all the changing for the better will never be the mis tress of a happy home. The same may be said of the wife who bemoans that fact that she didn't find her af finity before she was married. Men may give ear to such women, but they never respect them and they won't listen any longer than the.y are obliged to. As a rule, it seems to me the hus bands outgrow the wives. This is really the most hopeful of all the mis tits, because the wife is more apt to see what has gone wrong and rectify it. Husbands seldom can be depend ed upon to help remedy domestic in-felicitv. The sensible wife should waste very little time in trying to mako over her husband. She should realize that, if there is to be a chancre for the better, it must be brought about tliroimh her unaided efforts. After giving the mat ter a little intelligent thought she will see that it is not so difficult as it seemed at first. If she happens to have any of the "sportsman" in her nature she will tied this new pastime far more absorbing that bridge or shopping. A man is the most easily led crea ture in the world if only one knows how to ko about it. Any silly girl could testify as to that if she had brains enough to think about it at all. I have made a few rubs in the.-c das of conquest that T consider val uable. When I marry 1 shall try them. Want to know them? Well, never complain to your hus band of his lack of affection. Never suggest that he cares less for you than he used to; if you want more affection go in and win it. He hasn't a chance against you if you under stand your game. Remember that love is something one canr. ot demand simply because it is one's right. Never waste time in jealousy jeal ousy deprives you of y our own charms and heightens the charms of the other woman by power of contrast. Many a woman has loved her hus band devotedly and made him miser able every day she lived with him. "What ma. i If north all this trouble?" you ask. Perhaps, not one in tho universe, my dear, if you look at it in your own wa y. Hut I am sure that if I were mar ried I would prefer love to indiffer ence; I vvould prefer a happy home to a cheerless hearth. If you are going to marry and live with a man. why not get all the com fort vou can out of the arringement? The man. taken as a unit, may not be worth the trouble; but the man. Plus love, a happy "home and your own happiness, are worth all you could possibly give in payment. get them as you did?" "What was I to do when T found I hail no claim under the law? What was I to do after you wrote me that letter?" "That happened before I passed out. I could not see you then. And 1 have not seen any one clearly. I am :nt like the better spirits. My soul was not good when it -eft the Mesh. Rut I think you camo to New York just to get the jewels." (This was a venture on Rosalie's part; s still there were ways of retriev ing the mistake if her guess was wrong.) n j nan s. "Yes. It was my . I have been nK re '.'sh than he. Every day I spent in ik room above you I was afraid you would discover me. Y i when I thought of ;u down there I loved you still L Hut my eyes were really sick. It wa because I I was bad, but I loved 1 had seen you, I if cried so much but I promised not to rt pro;'-h you." "Little lady you. 1 think would have restored them." "Oh. John. That is hardest of all. If you had you might hav died but we would hav.- been saved this and your conscience would have been right. And John. I can n:t die and ioia iou now I daxc not because It would be wrong and because of Juan!" Rosalie noted how the name of Juan came in again. For caution, she must veer away from that lead at present. "I think that ,1 felt you near me at times." "Did you, John? Did you know I was in your room once when you were asleep? Do you remember how you slept through th3 lire at home? That was why I dared. There w as light on your face. I wanted to kiss it." "If you had and wakened me! "If I had if 1 only had!" Miss Es trilla wept bitterly; the voice of John answered with caressing reassuring words. "Rut John, why can you not for give? Don't you know all?" continued Miss Estrilla when she had control of her voice. "Not all. We do not wake to tho spirit at once. After the shock, we are in a mist for a time. I knew nothing until I was looking down on the people who surrounded . ray body a long time after. Then there were mists and dark spot. I saw one of the jewels on the floor beside the door. I could not see you nor Juan. I must know this is hard 1 am grow ing weak " "Wait. John wait!" cried Miss Estrilla, for the first time losing con trol of herself. "John! Come brvk! You must come back! I've something! to tell you that's killing me! John. John, you must know that he didn't mean to do it!" With all the will-power that she had, Rosalie kept herself from tho slightest movement when s he beard that simplo startling pronoun, "lie." It was time to close this seance. She summoned Laughing-Eyes, who bade Miss Estrilla good-by in a weal: fail ing tone; she settled into her conclud ing "trance." Tn the last two sittinp. Hosalb had been awakening from trance of her own accord. Nov,-, she slumbered on for two or three minutes before she let her eyes flutter open; her luce re sume cxprersion. Miss Estrilla had controlled hr weeping. To Rosalie's heerful. "Well, was 1 out long?" she returned no answer. Rosalie looked at her sharply. "I'm afraid you shouldi: t do this any more in your state of nerves." she said. "Only reison I've kept it up was because it itemed to be doln' you so much good. Rut today you look all tuckered out. An' me a wet rag is ca.st-iron beside my feeling this minute. Tell im was it long after I stopped talking before J woke up?" "No. It was shorter than ever be fore." "M-hm! "Well, those that know me better than I know myself have watched my trances. They say- that when I wake up soon after the spirits go, it means just ony thing It seems I'm running down. This rnediumship is like a bucket in the rain. You pour oit the water, an' you've got to wait a while for the bucket to till again. When I begun sittin' with you. I had more in me than I thought. Fact Is. I'd just begun to over flow, which I why I couldn't stop that first trance from comin'. Rut now it's about spill ed out. Trance ain't a relief any longer.
