While the others were lingering ovet
their cordials one of the 3'ounger mem
bers made a rather abrupt departure
and hurried out- A cabman hailed him,
but he hook his head- He wanted to
walk home. Perhaps the cold, stinging
air would bring seme order into the tor
tured chaos of his thoughts.
So she had tricked and deceived him!
And he had been like clay in her hands.
What a fool an easilj deluded fool he
had been- The doctor, of course, had
not divulged her name or even describ
ed her. But he knew!
Three y times she had fainted in, the
last few weeks and she had never
fainted before! Many other little inci
dents now rushed through his mind to
add theif damning evidence.
And her object? What had been her
object? Had she begun to chafe under
the morotony of married life and
sought to relieve it by playing with his
emotions Or was it a ruse to arouse
in him a more demonstrative love? She
had so often complained of his quiet,
He was soon before the house, but
he passed on by. He could not meet
her yet- His mind seemed Incapable of
forming a plan. Twice he walked
around the block. The streets were si
lent and deserted, the houses dark, and
the faint, cold light of the street lamps
seemed only to accentuate the gloom
Again he stood before the house,
paused irresolutely, then almost ran up
the steps. The door, yielding to his
latchkey, opened noiselessly. The lower
hall was dimly lit, but upstairs a warm
flood of light came from the open door

"Why, dear, you are early." She
dropped her book and came forward
with a smile of greeting.
"Yes." He did not look toward her.
"But surely the dinner is not over

"Very much what I have said. A Dr.
Branford was at the dinner. He told
a very interesting story of a young ,
woman who came to him to learn the
!j svmntoms of fainting and how they
could be assumed. As he delicately ex
pressed it. 'Some man vwas In for a

He did not see her sudden pallor. He

There was no cry, no warning of any

turned- Instinctively he sprang toward
her. Then he drew back with a sharp

Without another glance toward ' her
he strode into his own room slamming
the door after him. But the door failed
to latch and swung slowly open again.
He turned to close, it; his eyes fell un
willingly on the motionless figure on
She was so still! There was some
thing about the half-closed hand that
lay against tne aare rea 01 122 ruy-
Compelled by an impulse he
could not resist, he drew closer, stooped
over and half lifted' the slight, limp
form. The head fell back, the' white-
ness or ner iace sent a coia iear
through his heart.
"Edith! Edith!" , ,
He laid her down onvthe -couch and
knelt beside her.
"Edith!" The anguish of fear was in
his voice. Frantically he chafed her
hands and kissed her white face and
"Marift! Maris!" TTp nailed out the
name of his wife's maid. And then re- 1.
membering that Marie slept on the
fourth floor, he sprang to the bell and
rang It desperately. Then' he rushed
down to the library. Not waiting to
turn on the lights, he found the tele
phone in the dark. In a moment he had
the club and was asking for Dr.
Branford. Another moment and the
doctor was at the phdne.
He Calls be Physician. ,
"This is Carlyle Will Carlyle. I have
just reached home. My wife has fainted.
I can't arouse her. Dr. McDonald, our
famil3r physician, lives In Harlem; you
can set here quicker. Can you come at
once? West Fifty-fourth."
He was back again kneeling by the
still motionless figure, again kissing
her lips, her hair, and calling, to her en
treatingly. The maid came down now,
frightened, half dressed. Together
they worked orer her. Then the front
door bell rang sharply.
"The doctor -Marie!"
The girl flew to the door. .Hurried
steps on the stairs, and Dr. Branford
was bending over the couch. Carlyle
did not see the startled look that cross
ed the doctor's face when he examined
his patient; he saw only the deft, skill
ful hands as they felt her p'ulse, her

head, threw up the -window and drew
the couch close to it. Then a glisten
ing hyperdemic shone in the, light and
a slight red spot was left on her arm,
emphasizing its whiteness.
A quivering breath, and her eyes
opened. Their dazed glance fell on the
face' of the doctor who was bending si
lently over her. Then they closed again.
In an instant her brain was clear and
active. All her vmental faculties re
sponded swiftly to her need. The facts
stood before her clearly. For the first
time in her life she had really fainted!
She did not stop to wonder at the psy
chological conditions that had brought
It aDout- It had saved her! . It had
crushed the doubts in Will's mind and
made him send for Dr. Branford in an
agony of fear and remorse.
The Situation Was Hers.
Something almost like triumph swept
through her. The situation was hers,
and the desire to make the most'of it
was swift and irresistible. There
few situations in life too serious for an
emotional woman to play with.

The Physician Puzzled.
She hid her face against his shoul

of her unworthiness. All her little arts
and strategies of the past few weeks
seemed now unutterably small and con
temptible. She had chanced to read a
book in which a man's love for his wife
was reawakened by her Illness. Her
weakness and frequent fainting appeal

THE TARIFF LAW
Washington, D. C, Tec 13. Contend
ing that the present tariff law imooses
excessive duties and that the country
at large demands its amendment, sena- j
or Cummins of Iowa today delivered j
a speech in the senate in advocacy of
his resolution limiting the power otj
amendment of bills dealing witn the j
separate schedules of the tariff law. j
The speech was the first attack off
the session on the Payne-Aldrich law,
and it received careful attention
Mr. Cummins declared that under the
existing parliamentary usage in the
house and senate, amendment to the
tariff law is out of the question, and j
he contended that the first step to J
be taken was a modification of the 1
rules to render it possible to amend i
the tariff section by section. !
"During the recent political strug
gle," said Mr. Cummins, "I did not hear (
a single utterance by a Republican that
did not admit that the law contains J
duties that ought to be changed, and it
js tne duty of congress to act speedily." I
Alarich anc Mr. Lodge agreed!
with Mn cummins that it Is desirable J
to take up the tariff by subjects, not J
by schedules- Mr. Heyburn disagreed.
