So she did not tell Lois of Gloria's presence, and Lois went away in a turmoil of anxiety as great as that in Gloria's mind when she heard Lois ask about "poor Mr. Freneau." A knife of jealousy went into Gloria's heart and a hideous intuition that her beloved Dick might have bewitched Lois as he had bewitched herself. Those eyes of his had been perhaps a little too winning. She rebuked herself for allowing the suspicion even to Hit through her bruin and began her note to Muiry. Her eye fell on the letterhead. The branch offices of the brokerage firm were listed in an upper corner: Al bany, Buffalo, Cleveland, Detroit, Chi cago, St. Louis, Pittsburgh. A new suspicion stabbed Gloria. The tele grams and letters in Dick's writing had been sent from just those cities in just that order Yet he had been ! !

He could have sent them to the branch offices in advance to be sent to her in order or he could have intrusted them to someone traveling the round of offices. Her intuition hit on the truth, without knowing it The very ease of the trick disgusted her. She felt herself in the shadow of some hateful conspiracy. She be gan to doubt her own memory as to the letters and telegrams. Crumpling the letter she had began and thrusting it into her handbag, she left the office, telling the stenographer that she would telephone to Mr. Mol ly. The elevator seemed to drop out beneath her as her whole trust In man «d low b.<l ,.11« tram oo** her. A Knife of Jealousy Went Into Gloria'o Heart She necked her motor and told the driver to make haste for heme. The crowded traffic, with its delays, maddened her, and when ehe reached her house at last ehe wan In a frenzy. She ran op to her desk, took from the strong box the letters and toe grams of her lover, and compared them with the letterhead, laying them ont date by date. There they were, the «une towns In the same order, like a loathsome timetable of deceit Her love revolted at the very picture of Freneau. She lost all self-control and cried at It: "Whoever killed you and whatever his reason was, yon lied to me. Ditto You never loved me, and I don't love you any more! I won't wear mourn ing for you any more." She rang her bell furiously and or dered her startled maid to bring her the brightest gown in her wardrobe. She caught It from the maid's hands and drove the girl oat then flinging the riotous colors about her Mack gown like a scarf, she broke Into a dance, flinging her lithe body Into pos tures of joy «od crying out that she was happy and that her heart would never be the fool of love again. But she was not strong and her hysteria wore ont speedily. Her heart swung back to Its love again and Che Ml across the divan sobbing: "Forgive me, Pick. I believe you In spit* of the world. I love you In spite of everything and TO find ont the trnth—the truth—the truth!" AM now tt weald have been hard to say whether Gloria's motive was one of ldyalty to Freneau or of suspicion of Mm.
