Now Mr. Er-sex had always main- |
tamed a special dislike for Mr. Coan
Grant, broanse. forsooth, that gentle- j
man had been his most formidable !
rival in the days when both paid court j
to pretty Yielet Gray. For the,briefest
space of time imaginable Mr. Essex j
was dnmfonnded, and stood tnggiug ;
p rplexeuly at the drooping corners of !
his moustache, while Mrs'Essex trip- ;
ped by with the swish of a long train,
a vision of lace drapery, opal orna
meuts, and peurl-fair arms and slioul
ders.
"The devil!" said Mr, Essex, in an •

"Well, if that i

Miss Pritchard• "There goes your

"I see her," said Mr. Essex, lugu
briously.
And he took Miss Pritchard back to
the parlors only to be again astounded
by a sight of his wife and Goan Grant

! "My dear, 1 was coming iu search
j of you," said Peroy, with an effort at
nonchalance. "I must positively insist
j upon the pleasure of the next dance."
Mrs. Essex raised her hand pud ayes,
' and the faintest sound of suppressed
1 laughter smote upon his enr.

And away she floated in Ooan Grant's
arms, leaving Percy to stalk moodily
! np and down the checkered floor of
! the balcony, chafing at himself, and
grinding his white teeth t gether in a
paroxysm of jealous rage.
"This is a new phase in mvlady's
character," he muttered, with ages

The dance came to an end finally,
and, hurrying into the parlor, Percy
lost no time in finding Mrs. Essex.
"We will return home now, if you
please."
"Nonsense!" said Mrs. Essex, with
a most becoming pout. "Going home,

myself so hugely 1 I shall do nothing
of the kind, If you are tired you may

"Ah! said Mrs. Essex, with im

"I know so. You have degraded not i

Mrs. Essex leaned forward until her
hand rested upon his
"Degraded is a fitting word, Percy,
and defines the aftiir clearly and

self were continuously iu eaoh other's j
society, that you wero degrading me?

common sense, Percy, and ask
vonrself if n wife has not «lie same
