In his ownI clase there was not one chanrie irn a thoutsand of there being any trouble. She said that the same wlas triue in hter own case. She would take the risk if he woulhL After awhile they concluded that what had been proposed was the sensible thing to do, and they were married. Things don't always turn out as ex pected. Instead of there now being two caulses for worry there were four. Mr. Smith in adtldittlon to having his t own affair to trouble him had that of ohis wife. Mrs. Smith also had two cares of worry where she had had one. Then. too. curiosity came in to make matters worse. The prime difficulty in their now un lnburdeni therms,'l-es to each other was that fearirn::r they would nlOt ad here to their resolution of keeping tlheir secret the-y had each registe.red a vow to Iaintain It inviolate. Mr. Smith, who was tengrossedal in bIuslness. did not iind it litticlult to keep his vow. but Mrs. Smith,. who, had little to oc crulpy her mindi dwelt upon hier hus band's secret continrually. One day she said to hilm: "Dear. I have concluded that I must know your se,'ret. Trlue. you have made a vow not to reveal it, but that vow was made to me, and I release you." "Why cannot you dismiss this mat ter from your mind?" he asked. "If e I tell you my secret I am entitled to y know yours. I don't wLsh to know it Possibly if I did I nmight feel some thing, do something, say something to spoil our happiness. As it is, we are passing on without anything to mar it. VWhy not let thie matter rest as It is? Itememiber Pandora and the box of troubles she opened." This was all very well. but the curI ous bee had been buzzing in Mrs. Smith's bonnet so long that she could endure it no longer. HIowever, some thing occurred to bring about a revela tion of both mysteries. One morning the postman delivered the mall while the Smiths were at breakfast Mrs. Smith opened a letter addressed to her and turned pale. Seeing that she was about to faint, her husband ran to her and caught her In his arms. She came to herse!f in a few moments. "'What is it. darling?" cried her hus band. "Head It." Taking up the letter, he read: int When your mother died she left It di cretionary with me to make a confession ou or her. I have not long to live and have n eoncluded to make It before I die. Your mother spoke falsely when she told you your husband was dead. She also wrote him that you were dead. Something glimmered upon George Smith. An idea was trying to perme ate his brain.' "What was your maiden name?" he gasped. "Stacey--Arletta Stacey." Throwing his arms about her, he squeezed her till she cried out "Thank heaven!" he cried. "What for?" "I am your first as well as your see ond husband. You are my first and second wife." "How do you know?" "I married Arletta Stacey when she was seventeen years oht Why did you change your name?" "Mother forced me to do so to keep you from finding me." "But you have known my name since our marriage." iot "Yes, but Smnith Is not an uncommon ir name." What It Means. "The "obey clause in the marriage ceremony merely means that when the the husband takes a twenty-dollar bill out of of his pocket and commands his wife to take It. she must immediately com ply-and she does. suc Willing to Be Heroic.
