(©. 1920. by McClure Newspaper Unit.. | "Thank goodness, the whole thing will be done quietly," Mrs. Frauds Tab fourd murmured to herself as she stood watching the noonday crowd pouring into the subway. Her gown of gray, clinging material, with Its wide, child- Ml cellar of delicate, white lace seemed strangely out of place among the smart tailored suits of the working girls hurrying post. A gray velvet hat with a single ornament of twisted sil- J ver ribbon fitted closely over her coiled brown hair. No, there would be no disgusting publicity. Somewhere a clock struck the hnlf hour. Mrs. Talfourd became Impatient. Strange, Francis was bite. He hud in sisted that she should meet him there and that they should go together on the subway. How much easier to have called for him at the office with her little electric In spite of herself slit? began to j think about the first time she had seen j Francis. Then he had been a secre tary in her father's office, She re membered his .straight shoulders and the peculiar habit he had of becoming i quite red when one looked at him. How different from the young men who flitted about the fashionable bo-' tels and drove long, low-sealed road sters I She remembered how curiously happy she had been the day he timidly Invited her to a concert. How proud she felt, proud of his erect bearing, his energetic manner of speaking and his flashing smile. Then, too, the night she had given up a dance to go to walk with him, and he had told her that he loved her. Mrs. Tn I fourd caught her breath has tily. She must not think of such things. One should not think of such things when one was going to a law yer's to get a divorce. She must re member how Impossible It was for them to live happily together. She could not go without the things she had always been accustomed to. For two dreadful months she had lived within Francis' salary, denying her helf all the expensive luxuries she loved so much. Then her father had died and she had slowly drifted back Into the old way. Why should she not spend her father's money? He had worked all his life that his only daugh ter might have everything. Yet Fran cis wanted her to live upon his salary alone. Ridiculous! There had been quarrels, rather bad quarrels, and now she was waiting for Francis at the sub way entrance. A clock struck one. I A tired-looking man separated him self from the crowd and came hastily toward her. His well-fitting suit was worn and his cuffs were frayed. "Sorry. Blanche," he said briskly. "There was a little extra work that had to be finished. However, this Is the last time I'll beep you waiting, you know." As they went down Into the subway she began to open her beaded bag. "I pay my wife's fare," he said grimly, and the lines about his mouth hard ened noticeably. They entered the car nnd found a seat In silence. Mrs. Talfourd looked straight before her. Stations flashed by, spots of light and color, nothing more. The crowds ebbed and flowed. Suddenly the car Stopped. There was no station. They must be under the river. Mrs. Talfourd sighed with relief. It was probably waiting for an other car to pass. Then the lights went out. Mrs. Talfourd had been afraid of the dark ever since she was a wee tot. who clung In terror to her governess' hands as they went through the dark hnll into the brilliantly light ed nursery. Now she shivered a lit tle In the darkness and touched Fran cis' sleeve gently to make sure he was still there His voice rang out clearly nnove the others: "Wo will be going In a few minutes. The car often stops like this." Mrs. Talfourd was reminded of the ' first month of their marriage, when she cooked for Francis In a four-room apartment. How happy Francis had been, no matter how disgracefully the dinner turned out! Something startled ' her from her thoughts, the low moans j of a frightened woman. In the deadly stillness that followed there wns a low. dripping sound. Mrs. Talfourd clenched her hands and began to count the drops In a stupid way. Now there was the sound of running water, no j longer drops. It was the river. The car would soon he flooded. "Francis," she whispered. Her throat was strangely dry. "Yes, dear," he said softly, and she felt his arm close tight about her. Not a ray of light penetrated the dark ness, only that maddening trickling. On the other side of the car a man was praying In a husky voice and a woman was sobbing. "Dear.** It was months since she had said that word. "Dear," she whis pered again, and she felt his breath against ncr cheek. In that Instant of j happiness she forgot that she would soon die. In that same moment the j car was flooded," not with water, but with dazzling light, and again they were rattling noisily through the tun nel. Blindly they left the car. Mrs. Tal fourd, still clinging to her husband's arm, found herself In the street filled with sunshine. The crowds surged by unnoticed. "Francis," she murmured, flushing In confusion. "Do you suppose If we hurried we could find a four-room apartment and move In tonight?"
