"Are you Judging It as Just a plain man or as an editor?" Her query seemed both to please and amuse him, and Henrietta was sur prised to find herself answering hie amlle quite as If they were old ac quaintances. "1 am Judging It" he raid, "as an editor who tries to Imagine himself just a plain man. But what do you think about it?" "I'm afraid I agree with the au thor," answered Henrietta, somewhat timidly, "but really my opinion doesn't count In the least, because"— "On the other hand," Interrupted the man. "It counts supremely. It la the opinions of Just such casual readers as yourself that I have to study and learu to understand almost Intuitively, aa It were.

But any one coold make the story end happily —have them marry, I mean. That would have been the ordinary way. It must have taken some courage to end it the other way, and It seems to me the story's stronger for It" "But you see," persisted the editor, "everything In the story goes to show that this man and woman, though they met jnst once casually, as you and 1 are meeting, were most remarkably en rapport Why, then, does the author never have them meet again after making her reader feel that they ought by all that Is happy and harmonious, to belong to each other?" Henrietta smiled at the man's epr expression gave no ed manner. neatness. "Well." abe began defensively, "per haps tbe author was trying to show that, although a man and a woman may meet by accident, like that*and even feel and admit each to himself or herself that they really do belong to each other, yet neither one quite dares— Oh. I'm afraid I don't just know bow to express It" ahe broke off, blushing consciously at having spoken so freely to an ntter stranger. "Thank you," raid the man. and his manner was both sympathetic and thoughtful. "1 begin to understand. But I'm- a till unconvinced as to Its be ing tbe popular or natural viewpoint If I could talk to the author herself, 1 feel quite sure that I could." "Ooodnera!" raid Henrietta, starting suddenly. "This la my station. Good night" Tbe more Henrietta let her thoughts dwell upon this unusual little <Ubcus slon the more she found berself yield ing to the editor's point of view. There was no real reason, after all, why the man and woman In the story shouldn't have married and continued to "live happily ever aftef Still that would be a most common place ending, after all, and she accused herself of being Influenced, as was the editor, not by the artistic but by the commercial value of the story. So she tried to think of new argu ments to defend the author's denoue ment The heroine, she Imagined, was very much the same type of girl berself and. like herself, therefore pre ferred to keep those few moments of chance acquaintanceship au Idealized memory upon which she could look back forever and a day with joyful satisfaction.

"Not If I can convince the author Into my way of thinking," he answered brightly. "I have great confidence In my own powers of persuasion." Henrietta looked skeptical.

"Please don't." begged Henrietta, struggling to keep back tbe tears. "1 told you tbe very first time we met that tt took courage tq end the story that way.
