What chii t i i io: IBC pondered. "What can I do?" hf asked herself Bgaia and again, as w ith deft touch she Rtiaighteard and arranged the daintv apartment. Suddenly her face looked ms if a door had opened and Hooded it w ith sunlight. 'I know what I will do; I will write a gftarj 1 know I can if 1 try. People do not have to he so awfullv clever to do that. It is a knack, not a talent. There is Mrs. , w ho has made heap- al monev : and her stories are only poor trash all of them. .John Rays so." Before another hour had passed the outline of a plot was dancing in her ex c:ihI young brain, and a wton a- (the eonld get the time sin s;t dow n with pad and sharpened pencil. Then came x pause. "How shall I hepn?"

No: that w ill not do." And she tore off the fir-t sheet of her pad and reflected Bgahl, then wrote: "Frank At wood nam the onlv son of a Xo. no: that is too atejanaV' and the second sheet of the pad went into the n ante paper hasket. She recalled what John had said of the superfluous tirst three pagea, which might with henetit to most stomal be eliminated - for John w as a journalist and literary critic, and his standards t:d ideals Were jut on the measure of her earn. So she Ihinjghl with Kraal aVfcranee uff what he had said about tedious preambles. He is riht." she said with decision lt is the personal interest in the ehar acten which we are longing for in lending a akwy. All that comes before that is tedious superfluity. "I will dadi right on with a letter from the heroine, w hich will at once explain the situation." So with the confidence winch came from feelin" herself at last on the rijrht track, she Wrote: Dear Frank: I return herewith the letters, which of course 1 have now no riht to keen. I Heed not tell you what it tuntl mi'. I have ivfleeted much ujmu what vou said yesienlay. btrt I am at las! resolved. I will not see ou again. Ant attempt to make me break this resolve will le fruitless. (iod knows von have onlv yourself to blame that this marriage has " Tlease ma'am. said the cook. Mat inr suddenly in ujon the young author ess. "I'iea.ve, ma'am, the butcher is here. Will you route and see hint and give the order yerself about havin them chops trenched or whatevei Oh. what a bore," sighed Mildred 1 was uat getting into the swing of it." And she left the manuscript upon her desk to be resumed later. The matter of flat chops disposed ot there were other things requiring atten tion. At last, how rarer, she was at her desk i a i m. a tal. , again, sue reau over tne loner wun w hich her story opened to see how it sounded. "Reallv," s aid she. "I think that RtartM ofi very well." and then she took up the broken thread. "Only your-elf to blame that this marriage has " A violent ringing at the tele phone again broke the current- "Hal lo." said our young novelist. ".Mildred, is that vou?" w Tes, is it Alice?" "Ye. Mamma doe not leal very veil and wishes VOU to take luncheon a? with 11-. Siie has sent the carriage. Be ready to come man a it arrive." Obviously no more authorship hi day So slipping her paper into her dek she departed. Now John was a nice sort of fellow. But are mav as well acknowledge at once that he was not heroic, nor so arise, nor o infallible an authority as his w ife apposed. She had takau the outline of the real John, touched it up with the glowing rotors of her imagination and out of it had made an ideal John, w hich while it bora a trng reotmhlani t to the real was neverthe less largelv a work of art. But, after subtracting these additions from the e i real, there was rill left a vcr excel lent fellow, with good talent, which ha wa using with rather brilliant cf- : fectiveneai in journalism and various kind of literarv work; who was ador iuglv fond of hi wife, and had not vet recovered from his surprise at his ex- eessive good fortune in possessing that aanrh coveted treasure- for whom he had ron tended, with many others, in , thoe anxious days of courtship. And now there he wa at home, waiting for him. while Ue was urging his hrain to the top of its spaed, and driving hi quill in eager baste, thinking only of what it would bring for him to lav at her feet Mil. Ired was right in thinking he felt anxioit at times, for things did not al ways turn out as he hoped. And he oftentimes felt diheartened when he thought that with the fullest measure of ueeess w hich he could achieve his nrofession could never vield what so peerie a wif- as Mildred descrv!. For, of coure. he had with his im.-tgin-atio ; retouchetl the real Mildred to. he new purpose of anthociihip brought great liirht and hope into Mihlred's life. She felt nUfHUtailt - iiuleed. that hc wa much more iniHitaut than people was aware. That he was car rvinga rery large wcret that if John D a only knew ! Then Ue pictured to herself hi read ing her story possihlv reviewitig it. After he has ritten all kind of nice thing aiiout it I will tell him that 1 am the author: or and her heart turned coid and sick what if he aVouM sav it was trash? For of rourae, like other anod tritiii, John w:i seldom ptensed. If thing were all excellent, what would he the need of critics? So he had cultivated the art of dico ering Haw in xxhat seemed to orttinaiy render pure gem. Be had developed rather a talent for pillorying people in a Angle terse phrase, and was much valued for his kill in Inciting r noara with the editorial club tender oung apirants xx ho xvcre faryinu to make thcmclxe heard. This sounds brutal. But he Was outj professionally brutal. In his personal charaeteristics none could be more tender nr sxmpa thetie. Mildretl knew of this t auntie vein and beUevcd it. too a she did al 4 of John's attributes and gifts "but," she thought, "if he should sav r a any of those dreadful things about me: xvhat should I do? 1 should never aeeer aeH him." And so during the entire day she thought and planned. New intricacie of plot uggesting themelves x ix id ami interesting scenes eomins before C her stimulated imagination. Ilei mother urged her remaining and tend- c r iug for her husband to dine w ith them. Her secret desire xva u return, but he hwktHl at her mother's wistful face and had not the heart to refuse. She xvotild stay and send for John. That gentleman aimed at bouse at the usual hour. A he put his latchkey into the dour he smiled, thinking of the t quick car which was listening for it, and of (he pretty apparition xvhieh would meet him in the hall. MBj Jove." he thought. xVhat a lucky fel iou I am!" But the expected figure did not come to meet him. He xxas conscious of a little chill of disappoint- incut, and still more as he wandered j through the rooms and found all silent and deserted. He rang for the maid. "Where is your initress?" She is out. sir. There's a note, sir, muewiiere." and she looked anxiouslx ahout. "Oh, it is on her desk." said she. xvith returning meniorv. starting to go for it. "No matter. I will get it," and John turned his impatient steps toward hi? w ife's room. There was bo note upon the desk. and iuitc naturally he opened the lid. Hii evea were riveted iqon the north before him : DkarFrask: I return herewith the let ten whk'h 1 hax-e no loreir any rurht to keep.

He xxas alternately livid xvith rage and ehoking xvith grief. Hi dream of han liness vanishctl. Something like a curse came from between his closed teeth. "She lores this nuia, sad she i meets him and tells him ., and onlv yesterday. Oh. it is too horrible! too horrible!" He buried his face in his hands and groaned. l ii:i 1 1 go aarai ; r . 1 shall never ", At thai moment the telephone !cll rang. He hade Ihi notice of it. "I shall nexer Again it ring k.ng and loud.

Ten minutes l.-iter a cab drove InrtnusH up to the dVior of the ! Apartment House, and Mildred, with while face and fat Wealing In-iit. rushed into the room, and would have rushed into John's arm if he had let her. He felt tOUehed. and oh, bow he longel to take her to hi heart: but that could never be again.

You can look retry innocent, but. woman, took at that." and with tragic gesture he fecld up the paper. Mildred looked at it In nlhleiud; when she read.
