"Cherry this Is the nicest tiling that has luipgieiied fof a long, long while:" he snld. "Ynu and Alls are angels to let do come!" Cherry answered, aa they turned, and with laughter ami cutter, Interrupted talking wwt book to the bouse. Chetry. Peter Haw at once, was dif ferent In every way. Cherry was full f softnivs. of ready response to any appeal, of sytnpnthy und cmnprehen elon. She hnd been rnisundcrtiod. unhappy, iioc'ei-ied ; she bad devel oped through suffering a certain timid ity that whs utmost a shrinking a certain shy clinging to what was klud and good. Her happiness here wns an hourly delight to both Alix and himself. She seemed to flower softly; every day of the simple forest life brought her w Interest, new energy, new bloom. She and Alii wnshed their hair again, slammed the creek ago In. trumped and tang duets ngnln. Sometimes they cooked, often they went Into the old ensele.sa xpiisms of laughter at notb; leg, or almost nothing. One evening, when In the sitting room there was no other light than that of the (Ire that a damp July eve ning made pleasant, about a week after her arrival, Clierry spoke for the first time of Martin. She had tad a long letter from htm that day, ten pages written In flowing hand n ten pages of tba lined paper of a cheap hotel, with a little rut of tba wulldlng atandlng boldly against mackerel sky at the top of each page, lie was welt, be had some of hla din era at the hotel, but lived at home; lie had been playing a little poker and waa luckier than ever. He waa look ing Into a propoaltlon In Durango, Mexico, and would let tier know bow It panned out. Ptter had been playing the piano hilly when the letter waa tossed to Cherry by Alii, who usually drove Into the. village every morning after breakfast for marketing and the mall. Be had aeen Cherry glance through tt, aeen the little distasteful move aseat of tba muscles about ber note, and aeen ber put It carelessly under candlestick on the mantel for later aeoslde ration. At luncheon aha had retailed to It, and now It evidently Dad caused her to be thoughtful and little troubled. "Mart may go to Mexico r aha said. jreeent!y, with a sigh. "To atayr Peter aaka4, a.ulckly. Cherry shruggsd. wm lllll "At much aa ba stays anywhere I" aha answered, drily. "H int Poea that meaa your Alls asked.

"If I get my money I'll have enough to live on. wou't U I'eierr "You'll have about forty thousand dollars) ea, at five per Cent you could live on that. Kctally If you lived here In the valley," Peter answered. after some thought "Then I want you to know," Cherry went on quietly, with auddea scarlet In her cheeks, "that I'm going to tell Martin I think a have tried II long enough I" IVter looked gravely at ber, sober ly in hied, and resumed hla atudy of the Ore. Hut Alls tpokt In brisk pro test. "Tried It! You mesn tried mar rtage! Hut one doean't try marriage! It's a fact. It's like the color of your eyes." "Atlx." the little alster pleaded eager ly, "you don't know what It Is you don't know what It Is!

I knew nothing; I wasn't ready to be anybody's wife!" Something In the poignant sorrow of her lone went straight to their hrarta. and for the first time Peter hnd an Idea of the n-al an faring ahe bad hortie. "If I bad a child, even, or If Martin needed me." Cherry aald. "then It might be different! Hut I'm only a burden to him" "Hla letter doesn't sound aa If he thought of you as a huril. n." Alls sug pested mildly. "Ah, well, the minute I lesve htm he hns a different tone," Cherry ex plained, nnd Peter satd, with a glance almost of surprl.Ho at hts wife: "It's an awfully difficult powltloo for a woman of any pride, dear!" Alix, kneeJing to adjust the fire, as she was consfnutly tempted to do, met hts look and laid a srfot streaked hand on Ms knee. "Pete, dearest, of Course It Is! Rut" and Alix looked doubtfully from one to the other "but divorce la s hateful thins!" she added, shaking her head. "It It never seems to me Jus tifiable!" "IMvorce Is sn Institution," Peter said. "You may not like It any more than you like prisons or rusdhouses; It hBS Its uses." "People ret divorces every day!" Cherry added. "Isn't divorce better than living slung In marriage without love?" "Oh. love!" Alix said scornfully. Ixive Is Jut sruither nsme fnr pss- slon nnd selfishness and laxtnets. half the time!" "You can say that, because yours Is one of the happy mnrrlsgea," Cher ry said. "It mlglit be very different If Peter weren't Peter!" As she snid his nnme she sent htm her trusting smile; her blue eyes shone with affection, and the exquisite curve of her mouth deepened. Peter smiled back, and looked away In a little con fusion. "I can't Imagine the circumstances under which I shouldn't love you and Peter P Alix summarised It, triumph antly. "And Martin r Peter asked. "Ah. well; I didn't marry Martin 1" his wife reminded him quickly. "I didn't promise to love snd honor Mar tin In sickness and -health ; for richer, for poorer; for better, for worse by George!" Alix Interrupted herself. In her boyish wsy, "thoee are terrtfle words, you know. And a promise la a promise!" "And even for Infidelity you don't believe people ought to seperataTT Cherry asked. "Nonsense!" Peter aald. "But you aald that Martin never" "'o, I'm not apeaklng of Martin now P "Well, wouldn't that coma under worserT Alix asked. "But, my cblM," Peter expostulated kmdly.

"I think there's a lot of nonsense talked about the faramy oncompreery but It seems to ma that If you have a home snd meals and books and friends and the country to walk In, you" "Oh, heavens.

Nothing more waa aald for several days anon the aubjert of a poaaibU dtvnrr. One afterpooa Peter wosaid the porch, tired and hot, and Awed everything apparently deserted, lie dropped Into a chair, and traa still hrreihieaa front the rapid climb up hill, when stray notes frora the piano reached his ears; a chord, a carefully played bit of bass ; then a chord again. Then alowty, hut srith dainty accuracy and even feeling.

With a seaae that he bad been doe Ing. If only fr a few mtnutee, Peter opened hla eyes. I'rsmed In the cabin doorway, poised like a butterfly again the dark background of the room, stood Clierry. He knew that she bad been standing so for some time, for a full minute; perhaps more. They looked st each other In a si lence that grew more snd more awk ward by great plunges.

Peter lay there, and Ma heart pounded. A moment ago he had been a tired man. fretted because his wife forgot to nnvt him; now there wss something new In the world. And rsp Idly sll the world became only a back ground, only a setting, for this extra ordinary actuation. The hills beynd still swam In the hot sunlight, the mountain rose Into the blue, but the light that changes all life lay over them for Peter. He aald to himself that It was ak- ward he did not know how he om.d enter that door and talk to Cl.errv. And yet he knew that that itwlM of Cherry, that the common ex-hni'i:e of words and glance, that the daily trifling encounters with Cherry were sll poignantly aigotftVant now. lie felt no Impulse toward hurry. He might sit ou his porch smxher hour, mlgbt saunter off toward the rreek. it mattered nothing; the tuur waa steadily approaching when ahe must respfcx-ar. Alix drove In. full of animated apol ogies. She managed the car far tet ter than he, and no thought of an ac cident bad troubled him. The evening was warm, one of the two or three warm evening that marked the height of summer even In the high valley. There was not a breath of air In the gnruVn; roses They Looked at Each Other In llenee. and wallflowers stood erect In a sort of luminous enchantment.
