THE MARKET TREND
(Business Feature Service.)
The market abundantly fulfilled
predictions when it recently enter
ed a period or dullness and irregu
larity from which it is not expected
to emerge until after the new year,
although sporadic rallies of a specu
lative nature may occur. While loan
ing repeatedly at six and seven per
cent, call money has not been plen
tiful and bankers still take occa
sion to emphasize the money string
ency, nasmuch as the position of
the Federal Reserve banks has im
proved but little, and deflation out
side Wall street has made but little
headway, the present seems an un
propitious time for any considerable
speculative advance. Underlying in
dustrial and political conditions like
wise hold the market in check,
among which may be named the
tangle over the peace treaty and
demoralized exchange, the possibil
ity of war with Mexico, and the
crippling effects of the coal strike
lenge me to avenge the honor or my
ancestors by cutting his throat In the
Carpathians, I should put his letter
among my curiosities. Vendettas and
secret societies and sub absurdities
have no place among us outside the
theatre. That's why I say that this
matter should be dealt with In an
English way. If your father has done
any man a wrong, he, as an English
gentleman, will do his best to put It
right All the rest Is merely talk.
It should not even be taken Into ac
count, and would not be, I think, un
less there are circumstances of which
I know nothing. That Is why I speak
with reservation. I know so little ot
your father, and he is one of the most
difficult men to know that I have
Evelyn shook her head.
"Every man Is difficult to know and
every woman," he said philosophical
ly; "those who seem most superficial
are often the people we understand
least Here am I talking to you as
I have never talked to anyone in all
my life, and yet you know nothing
about me whatever."
"I differ from that entlre'y."
"Indeed, it is true. If it were not.
you would not have asked me whv I
let them say that I am going to mar
ry Count Odin."
"You let them say It because it is
too foolish to contradict"
"Nothing of the kind. I let them
say it because my mother would have
married his father had her wishes
been consulted. Oh, I know that so
well'. Every day my inheritance
speaks to me. I am afraid of him, and
yet am drawn toward him. I detest
him and yet go to him. Do you won
der that London seems my only way
of eacape-the theatre Where Etta
Itomney can come to- life again and
Evelyn be forgotten?"
She spoke with some excitement as
she always did when the silent voice
within told her again of those tri
umphs awaiting her upon the stage In
London whenever she had the mind
to seek them. Gavin thought that he
understood her; but her confession
troubled him none the less. Almost
formal as their conversation had been,
there was that in the timbre of their
voices, in their steps, their gestures,
their looks, which declared the pleas
ure of their intimacy and would have
betrayed the mutual secret to any
who might have overheard them.
Love, Indeed, laughed aside at the
prim phrases and the mock sophis
tries and none realized this more
surely than Gavin.
"I hope it would be as a last re
source," said Gavin presently, still
thinking of her threat to return to
the theatre. "You must not forget
that your friends may have something
to say in the matter."
"My friends! Who are my friends?"
she exclaimed hotly. "The chatter
ing doctor, who is always looking for
an excuse to feel my pulse. The vicar,
who is so dreadfully afraid of his wife
hearing the nonsense he talks to me.
Young John Hall, who can speak of
nothing else but Yorkshire cricket
scores. I have no friends unless It
be the dogs.'"
Gavin drew a little nearer to her,
and r on fronting her suddenly, he said:
"Then here is a new breed of hound
and one that will be faithful."
She turned away her head, forget
ting that the darkness hid her crim
son cheeks fioin him.
"I must not listen to you I, who
ata to be Count Odin's wife," she said.
