Jerry laughed at him. "Settle down,

gling her fingers closer Into his hand. ,
"We’il die together, en famine, that’s

Jerry’s fingers were like Ice. But
there ws« nothing of drooping sadness

alertness she remained stiffly upright,
her eyes brilliant, her slender chin
tilled to an unwontedly high degree.
They knew everyone at the club
house, and as they made their way to
the table reserved for them In a far
corner they were obliged to stop by
many chairs for a laughing word with
one and another. They saw Duane on
the moment of their entrance. He
was at a tatle with Irvin VVeatherby
and his wife and Edith, the oldest of
his three daughters. Happily, that
table was not directly on the aisle
they passed through. They lifted their
hands to Jerry as she went by, nod
ding. laughing, and Jerry swept them
all In a quick, bright greeting, forming
the words, “I'll see you later,” with
her lips as she passed.
Duane was amazed at the studied
perfection of her manner, the abso
lutely impersonal friendliness of her

Jerry smiled gratefully for his con
cern as she slipped prettily Into her
chair. She shook her head.
“You certainly are a sweet old thing,
father. But I am not trying to Impress
him. I don’t care to make him jealous.
I don’t want to try any childish bluff
ing. I just feel like having you and
mother. So why bother?”
For at least the thousandth time In
his life Jerrold told himself proudly
that Jerry was a little brick. She
looked about the great room with her
usual air of friendly interest, nodded
to her friends here and there, chatted
a little with those near her, and dis
cussed the gowns, complexions and
coiffures of the other women with her
mother. Bhe even mnde a brave pre
tense of eating her dinner as It was
placed before her. But when once In
a while her flagers touched her father’s
hand, tl.v.* Icy chill of them cut him
like a flash.
At first, in his loyalty to her, L*
would not even look across to the
Weatherty table after that first greet
ing as they entered the room. But
Anally, when he realized that Jerry
had herself perfectly In hand and
needed no anxiety of his, he turned
that way. Duane’s eyes, smoldering,
aomber, were fixed upon her lovely
profile, the cloudy blackness of her
dark hair, the creamy whiteness of her
throat and the shoulder half turned
from him.
Jerrold could not withhold a friend
ly, sympathetic smile, and Dunne re
sponded with o grateful, unsmiling
. nod.
“Any fool could see what's In his
mind," Jerrold thought “The whole
town will be buzzing with It now.”
When they went Into the ballroom

found it pleasant place for Prudence
to ait, and Jerry danced with her

Doctor Morse, and then with Newton

They saw him coming. Jerrold's

**Oh, hello, Duane. How do you like
the Middle West at its very wicked
est ?”
“Oh very much, sir. thank you.”
Duane clung to his hand like u man
drowning, but Jerrold passed him on,
perforce, to Prudence.
“You’ve met my wife, I know—"
“Oh, yes, Mrs. Harmer. But it seems
a very long time. It Is very good to
see you again.”
Prudence lifted her’hand, lifted both
hands, greeted him with u warm,
almost foolish effusiveness, but she
could not postpone the inevitable. He
looked teyond her to Jerry.
“G —good evening.” he said lamely,
and his eyes were riveted to the
haughty lift of her chin.
Jerry smiled. Mindful of the eyes
of the friendly, always Interested home
town, she lifted a slender, Ice-cold
hand and dropped It for a moment In
his. She caught her breath at the sud
den contact. If he retained It, if he
drew It warmly Into his, caressed It,
as he had done In the studio that un
forgotten and unforgettable night, she
knew she could not withstand the
tenderness of his touch. Duane held
it barely a second longer than Is al
lowed by a strict convention, and re
leased It slowly.
“W—will you sit down?" she of
fered generously, in gratitude for his
The way he dropped Into a chair
beside her gave somehow the Impreci
sion of a ship tossed In a stormy sea,
suddenly and surprisingly finding that
Its anchor held.
“Oh, mother, look!" said Jerry
brightly. “There’s Judge Harris and
his new little wife from California."
She explained to Dunne: “Judge Har

for centuries, It seems. And a tew
weeks ugo he umazed everybody by
marrying a seventeen-year-old girl on
the (Joust. Naturally he is our chief
subject of gossip. She Is pretty, Isn’t
she? Perhaps people will think she
Is only his daughter.”
Duane professed a tremendous In
terest in the wild marriage of the old
Judge, and the four of them discussed
It down to the minutest detail, until
the subject sank of Its own weight and
died awuy.
There was an awkward Interval.
“Will you dance, Mrs. Harmer?’’
Prudence stood up ut once. “I’d
love to," she declared, quite us If she
meant It.
Then Jerry laughed. She touched
her hand to Duane's arm. "Let me
warn you! Mother cannot dance. She
Is likely to do perfectly terrible things
on the floor. Father and 1 have been
teaching her to dance for twenty
years, and she can’t do It yet 1 She’s
only trying to be polite to you."
“Oh. Jerry,'' protested Prudence,
blushing. “Sometimes I am sure 1 get
ulong quite nicely."
“I nin not u bit alarmed,” Duane
assured her. And then to Jerry, very
pleadingly. "Please wait."
Prudence had a little difficulty get
ting the step at first. "Is—ls It a
waltz?" she asked* apologetically. “I
never can tell the silly things apart."
He laughed ut her confusion. “It's
a fox-trot. Never mind. We’ll get on
finely, I know. Just walk. Why. your
daughter was very unjust to you—you
dance famously! And idl my fears
were groundless."
Pruoence was In n desperate quan
dary. She so wanted to he pleusant
to the poor toy, but when she talked
she always lost the step. She danced
conscientiously half-way around the
room, before she spoke.
"I uni so glud to see you again, Mr.
Allerton. I—l wish things were a
little different. I know we should be
very good friends —if we had a
"Would yon mind—l suppose you
would rather not call me- Duane," he
said hopefully yet diffidently.
*Td love to. It la ■ nice name,
isn’t It? And Jerrold and I always
speak of you as Duane —when we are
Duane smiled a little ruefully at
that. “Your husband is wonderful to
me,” he suld. “I never met anyone
like him before. He —he Is Just fine."
“Yes, Isn’t he? I knew you would
like him.”
Duane patiently helped her back
Into the rhythm, and when they were
dancing smoothly again, unable to re
sist his great desire to talk, of Jerry,
he said:
“She Is so beautiful, Isn’t she? She
seems lovelier every time I see her."
“Yes, she Is a beautiful girl. Every
one says so."
“She always seems so—well poised—
so sophisticated. She Is always sure
of herself, never perturbed. Sophis
ticated, that Is the word for It. That
was what deceived me about her at
"Yes, she looks sophisticated, but
really she Is the most Innocent and
artless thing imaginable. You’d be
“Yes. I was."
“Girls are like that now. They get
that air of advanced maturity when
they are no more than children. They
tnlk of the most Intimate and —secret
—things In the most outspoken man
ner. And ’they don’t really know
what they are talking qbout! They
pick up a lot of superficial expressions
from the books they read, from plays,
from movies—they think it is quite
clever to repeat what they hear —
clever and Just n bit shocking. At
heart they are Just as Innocent us we
were when we were young. But they
sound—oh, so very much worse! If
the twins had talked the way girls do
now—well, I should probably have
spanked them."
“I don’t think the 'others are like
Jerry, though—such an air of assur
ance, and such artless Innocence le
neath It."
“Oh, yes, Duane, most young girls
are like that in the beginning. And
men never understand It. They think
girls really know and understand the
things they talk about so rreely. They
don’t at all. And so quite Innocently
they lead them on and on—"
“And whose fault, Mrs. Harmer, In
the end? It was mine, I know, In our
case. But I was sure she wus—play
ing the game. I never dreamed of
unything else. The way slue looked,
the way she talked —”
“Why, Duane, I’ve heard those girls.
Jerry and her friends, sny things to
each other, discuss things, that hon
estly I should not dream o' saying to
one of my Hsters —even to Jerrold!
They don’t know what they’re talking
about, I tell you. They think It’s smart
to appear sophisticated and blase —
and at heart they ure children. Oh,
after a while they learn —but they
haven’t yet. Isn’t it too bud that men
don’t understand them—as their moth
ers do?"
When they returned to Jerrold and
Jerry, who were waiting for them,
Prudence said brightly:
“Now, you see, Jerry, I did very
well, after all l I was only out of step
a time or two, wnsn’t I, Dun—Mr.
Allerton? And we tulked all the time,
and you know usuully 1 can't talk
when I’m dancing. I think ! may learn
after all —In time."
Others came up, Joined the little
group, chatted a while and drifted on.
When the music began again Dunn?
turned to Jerry.
“W—will you dance?"
"Yes," she answered briefly.
When they had moved away, Jerrold
turned to Prudence.
“She can say what she likes, and
you may believe it if you want to.
But Jerry wanted to dance with him.
Half a dozen boys came up and asked
her to dance, and she made excuses
every time. she was Just waiting for
him to come back."
Prudence smiled at his stupidity und
suld nothing.
Jerry and Duane had (lanced the full
length of the room without a word
between them.
"Jerry,” be said at last, very softly.
"I realize, of course, that you wore
this gown mostly In defiance, hut 1
hope it was Just a little bit for remem

"Mr. Allerton, pleuse—"

you? Stay uway from me. Talk to

"Oh, please don’t 1"
They danced for a while in silence.
"Jerry! Waa it a little for remum

"Mr. Allerton, I ask you to help

cruelty of her words. “You didn’t need
to turn the knife, Jerry. The first cut
was shurp enough."
Aguin they dunced In silence.
“Jerry, I love you, Doesn’t that
make any difference?”
"No. If you love me—lt does not
make any difference."
After a long interval he said, very
softly: “Jerry, tell me, when you are
with me—like this—doesn’t It make
you think a little bit—of that night In
the studio? You were so sweet, Jerry.
You were the loveliest thing I ever

I had when you first looked up at me—

black hair—and, most <>f all, that
brave, glue, brightness in your eyes.
Oh. Jerry, It was » wonderful night—

very low, very Intense. “Don’t! I urn

finished, when her voice faltered.
Jerry lifted her misty blue eyes un
der the shadowing fringe of the durk
lashes, looked at him, directly, very
frankly, and answered surprisingly:
“Oh, Jerry,” he pleaded. “You love
me ulready. _ You can’t put me off any
longer, you—"
A slight, almost imperceptible move
ment, and Jerry was free of his arm.
She called softly across to Newton
Macklin, standing near them:
“Oh, Newton, we have been looking
everywhere for yon." When he had
Joined them she slipped her fingers in
.his arm. She looked at Duane with
Ice-cold eyes, and smiled, with Ice
cold lips. “It was a wonderful dance,

Jerry’* Plaything
In the first week!of December there
was a heavy Middle West blizzard, and
for two days the city cowered under
stinging winds and cutting sleet. After
that came a stil., biting cold, that
warmed gradually to a blanketing
snowfall. And on the fifth day when
the streets were packed to a slick but
solid bottom, Jerry, unable to endure
the brooding loneliness of her thoughts
any longer, got out the roadster and
went for a careful ice-cold ride be
tween fields of dazzling whiteness,
along roadways Hanked with snow
bowed trees.
It was late In the afternoon when
she turned back. As she drove through
town, at the corner of Sixth and Lo
cust streets she was held up by the
traffic officer, standing foremost of the
cars awaiting his signal. Jerry wait
ed, as always, with alert eyes on the
officer’s hand, her foot poised for a
sharp pressure on the gas throttle to
make the quick get-away on which she
prided herself, when the tide of the
traffic was turned.
“Jerry! You beautiful thing!”
The half-tender, half-mocking voice
was directly beside her. Jerry caught
her breath. She did not tun her head,
did not waver her Intent gaze upon the
detaining officer. She 4cnew without
looking that be was close to the cur,
leaning toward her, his chin grimly
set. his eyes unsmiling. Jerry knew
she could endure no more.
In that moment she received the sig

from the officer to reprove her for her

nor look behind. She drove with i Tld,
iron-set muscles up the heuutiful, glis
tening avenue, and whirled Into the
garage behind the house. Jerry hud

In her childish days she had struggled
with the broken toy until convinced
of her Impotence, so now she realized
the Ineffectiveness of her struggle

Acting Matter of
Head, Never Heart
Acting is an art, not a spasm. Tin#
actress who makes her bearers weep
is not one who weeps herself, but
the one who seems to weep. The se
cret of fine acting, the secret of all
art, is the suggestion, the Inflaming
of the spectator’s Imagination; ami
the secret of suggestion Is studied
The acrobat or the dancer may
leave the stage exhausted, hut an ac
tress who know's her husluess no more
swoons at the finish of her big scene
than Whistler had to he revived with
smelling salts on completing an etch
ing. The poor uctress puts her heart
Into tho role, the trained actress puts
her head Into It.
George Arllsh has said It perfectly
In one short sentence: "The nrt of the
nctor Is to learn how not to he real
on the stage without being found out
by the audience."—DeWolf Hopper In
the Saturday Evening Rost.
Rare Chicago Case
In n recent murder trial In Chlcngo,
one Juror, after 37 hours, persuaded
his 11 comrades that they were wrong
In their determination to acquit the
defendant, and the result was that
a verdict of guilty was returned.

“Whatsa matter? Keelin' crook?"
“No. I sleep at night."
