When I returned

"I want to talk to you," she said in
broken tones, and there was a strange
light in her eyes and an eagerness in
her face quite unusual.
.She sat by a table on which a lamp
was feebly burning. The wrap sho had
worn to the play hung over the back ol
her chair, and her bonnet had
hastily taken off, leaving her
white hair slightly disarranged.

She clasped her hands and looked at
me as though I must tell her. At least,
I felt that way, and in order to turn her
eyes from me for a moment, I repeated
that I thought they did.
She hung upon my words with a look
which resembled joy in hor face.
"I havo dreamed of it," sho said, "I

send costly bouquets and give theater
parties in acknowledgment of the civil

desirable that they should, for, if they
have not means, there are plenty of
other people about who have millions to
