I think my mistress, Pailomene, the
most beautiful woman I ever saw
yea, and the sweetest and the gen
tlest and the best. And she says that,
next to my father, she loves me bet
ter than any dog she ever knew.
But I am not the only one who
The Man has often said to me. when
Philomene wasnt around: "Paddy,
old man, I really Je!leve you love your
mi&tres nearly as much as I do;"
which shows that he doesn't really
know how very much I do love her.
I know that Philomene loves the
Man, too, for I have watched her night
after eight take his picture from its
place on her dressing table, and kiss
tt tenderly and say such sweet things
to it. Just as if picture could hear
tied feel! Why she doesn't ssy those
things to The Man himself I can't
make out; she says them to me.
One night The Man and Philomene
went out alone, and when they re
turned The Man came in to get warm,
for tt was very cold out of doors.
They went into the tea room, and I
fallowed them there and curled up
tinder the table. 1 mutt have fallen
suleep for when I awoke I was sure
that The Man had gone, for I heard
my mistress talking to the picture,
just as I heard her so many times be
fore. She was saying:
"Of course I love you, dear. Ton
must have known It for a long time.
I tried so hard not to let you see it,
and yet I was afraid in my heart that
you wouldn't. That's the woman of
It you know."
I looked out from under the table
and saw that she was not talking to
Joe picture, but to The Man. They
were standing by the fire-place, and
The Man had his arms around her,
and the light from the fire made her
cheeks a red as the glowing coals in
the grate. The Man was saying:
"Sweetheart, my sweetheart, I love
you ah, bow I do love you! You
have foolishly set me on a very high
pedestal, but I win try -nd be worthy
of the priceless love yon have given
Philomene raised her face and The
Kan kissed her, and as he did so I
felt a funny feeling Inside of me. and
I wanted to rush out and bite blm on
the leg, but I knew my mistress
wouldn't like that, so I restrained tuy
elf. Tbe next day boy brought my mls
tr a little package ot letters, and
Just as If a Picture Ccuid Hear and
when she opened them and read the
Cret one she grew as white as a ghoaf
and gave a little gasp and pressed her
liaud to her heart. All day long she
eat In her room saying nothing, see
ing nothing, and paylug no attention
evt-u to me, but with such a look In
her eyes as I never wish to see in
hem again. That night, when Tbe
Man came, she walked quietly Into
the room, and as he aroae to meet
tier, and held cut his baud, she placed
the package of letters In them. Tu
Men s face turned tvcn whiter than

did you get these?'-he gasped as be
sank into a chair.
"A messenger brought them to me
thl morning." she said wearily. "I
do not know who sent them or why."
Then she went on bravely: "Tell me
all about them; tell me all about her.
Was she as much to you did you
love her so very, very dearly?" she
asked softly. "Is she dead or "
"No. no, Philomene. I thought I
loved her, but it was not real love
I know what that is now. But the
story is such a miserable one, I cannot
Mfe So Different, So Different"
bear to tell It to you. Still, as yon
say, you have a right to know, and I
will tell you all the whole truth."
"Yes, dear," said Philomene, "all of
"I met Helen Burnett at a recep
tion given by an artist friend In Lon
don. Her wonderful beauty of face
and form caught me, and before I
knew it I was, as I thought, desper
ately In love with her. She was an
actress not so great on the stage
as she was off It as I discovered to
my sorrow. We left London together
and went to Paris"
"You married her?"
"Well no, not you see, she had
husband living somewhere and ahe
had not yet secured"
A low moan from Philomene caused
a spasm of palu to croft The Man's
face. He hesitated and then went on.
"But I Intended to marry her Just
as soon as I could do so. Then one
day. some kind friend I never knew
who. but I have blessed him ever
since told ber that I had reached the
end of my fortune: that I was prac
tically a beggar. When she came to
me and asked me If the report was
true the mist cleared from my eyes,
and t saw her as she really was. To
get rid of her was my only thought.
and so I did not deny the rumor, but
allowed her to think that it was true.
Later when she found out that she
had been duped, she .was furious at
the lens of her prey, and she swore
she would some day get even with
me. Fearful ot what she might do,
I sent a friend to her with Instructions
to buy from her my letters. 8he sold
tbem to him for an enormous price;
but It seems tbst she kept a few of
them. 8he has sent them to you
and well and that is aX"
Philomene looked at Tbe Man's
haggard face and a it pity stole
over her own. Then she slipped Quiet
ly around Ik bind hint and put her
arms around his neck and protsed
her face close to his cheek.
"Dearest," she said; "1 had thought.
in tbe way all women love to think,
that I was the One Woman. But It
was foolub of me to tbluk you any
less bunisn than other men and
women" sbe added after a little
pauso. "I know that it was only
mad Infatuation tbat carried you off
your feet and I know now it Is all a
thing of the pant. I love you and I
forgive you, at I know you would
forgive me, were you In my place and
1 in yours."
"My darling!" cried Tbe Man. and
he turned and took her lo bis arms.
"Would you, di-ar?" wMapered Fbtt
"H9W eouM I help It?" sold The
Man, pressing his lips against ber
"Anything Are you sure; are you
very, very sure?" ami her sweet gray
eyes looked scarehtriRly into his own.
"I am very sure;" The Man said
"Then sit down In this chair; I have
something to tell you." said Philo
mene. The Man obeyed wonderlngly.
ThlKimene stood behind where he
could not see her. and said, very
lowly and hesitatingly:
"in Italy, three years agn. I was
the mistress of the Count d'Orsay.'
The Man stopped breathing! his
face grew a horrible ashen gray, and
his lips lost every trace of color.
"I can't believe It," he gasped.
"I swear to you that It Is true."
said Philomene solemn'y.
And It was true. For the Count
d'Orssy was my father, and It was
while Philomene was In Italy that he
was given to her.
The Man sat for a long time with
his face hidden In his hands, but he
did not speak. At last Philomene said,
ever so gently and sorrowfully:
"Now you know, dearest, how great
my love Is for you. True love is al
ways forgiving. Is your love for me
as great as mine tor you? I loved the
Count d'Orsay" The Man shuddered
"with a purer, truer love than ever
you bestowed on Helen Burnett
Surely that ought to count in my
favor. And some day, dearest, when
you have forgiven me fully, I will ex
plaln it all, and you will be glad tbat
you loved me so well, loved me
enough to forgive me, as I have for
But The Man only sobbed and mur
mured: "It's so different, so differ
ent." "No. no, dear. It only seems differ
ent. It Is really just the same. An
unkind world has cast a heavier load
of chains upon the woman that's all
but there is no real difference. But
I won't ask you to answer now; you
must have time to think. Walt until
tomorrow, and then. If you find that
your love Is as great as mine, you
may send me a rose. Good night,
The Man arose and took a few steps
toward the door through which she
had vanished, then stopped and turn
ing, went blindly out into the night.
I went softly up the stairs to the
room where my mistress sat with a
strange, frightened look on her face
that I was almost frightened, too.
"Oh, Paddy boy," she cried, throw
ing herself on her knees by my side,
and putting her arms arnund my neck,
"Have a done a foolish thing? A dog's
love lives while his life lants. Noth
ing can shake it; nothing can destroy
It- But a man's love ah, I donl
know I don't know."
