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
dead when they were sent.

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

A Knife of Jealousy Went Into Gloria'o
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

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

was happy and that her heart would

But she was not strong and her
