It flowed out from the woman on the platform again, all that shine and glamour of life at a young high tide, of a day when life was thrilling and high, and in its thrilling height could be flung away gladly because of a belief in something higher still. She bowed to them all. holding her hands tight over the childish gauze fan. Then she was gone, running In a graceful haste of azure skirts. There was no applause for a mo ment. only a struck silence. In the blank of it, Esther heard the voice of the woman at the table behind, & flat. hard, smalt voice. “I used to have hair like that. I used to be able to sit on my hair." She had been drinking; she put her head down on the pine table among the White Rock bottles and began to cry. • • • The low-ceiled, wide-spreading stone house on the Hudson that night in the fall of ’seventeen was lighted nil through with fan-thapr-! flares of gas-light, for John Valaty disliked the hard whiteness of elec tricity. In the long living room to night only lamps shone, big nickel ones with translucent porcelain shades, and the tall filigree piano lamp with Its brittle old rose aitk lining under a silver tracery of dalsla* and clovers and roses. It stood beside the old piano that was thinly sweet-toned under Robin Valaty’s brown young hands. In the sleepy-hollow chair, across from him, John Valaty lay back watching his son and daughter with a raptness that softened the tense lines of his thin, handsome, gray mustached face. Robin was in olive drab, of course. You couldn't have persuaded him to get out of it except to sleep. Hln luminous brown eyes smiled up at Emilia, leaning over him as he played scraps of casual simple mu sic—“ Narcissus” from his little boyhood. “Drink to Me Only" from college, and “Maytime” that he had picked up in New York the last time he went to the show.

Emilia, glancing at her father’s shadowed face, pressed her sweet dis order of yellow massed hair against Robin’s shoulder-strap, laughed, and said. “Oh. never mind, father— Robin’s home!” The boy and girl clung together for a moment; and the father, watching them, forgot everything but that it was true. His son was brave and strong and clever, his girl was beautiful and winning and pure. John Valaty’s values were still very much those of the Hugue not count, his ancestor. New York financier though he was. The old Hudson River families didn’t change much. Emilia came and dropped down on the arm ot her father's chair. She [ was at a high tide of young living ind loving. Her sky-blue satin danc ..)g dress molded a long-limbed body, whose alight curves were accentu ated to a pretty dignity by the cor seting beneath, and clung to her silken ankles as she moved swiftly to her father. "There, that’s Roger at the side door," she said, and ran light-footed to throw It open to his knock. Roger stood under the old ship's lantern on the side porch, big and broad and fair in his uniform, smil ing at Emilia over the red-coated baby girl In his arms, daughter of his dead, older sister. With hts aunt Myra, they made the Scarlet house- , hold on the next estate. "Esther’s determined to see her be trothed before she goes to sleep to night,” he said with a little laughter in his deep, slow voice. Robin had leaped up, and dashing to the door, reached past Emilia to snatch little Esther into his arms. She was a steady-eyed, sober baby. Even at four she had a serious baby 1 certainty of manner. The boy of twenty-three and the girl of four ' kissed one another with devotion. Esther tightened her woolly red-clad arms around his neck. “The idea of their trying to keep , my fiancee off me till tomorrow morning?" said Robin. "They couldn't,” Esther said calmly , from his arms. Roger followed them In, laughing with the rest. Roger Scarlett was , always called "ruther old for his j age.” He was not actually as mature , in some ways as Robin, w hose many- J sided mind could hold its own with , intellects ten years older, nor was he | as mature in Instinctive worldly wis- j dom os their fellow lieutenant, the young Dick Stoddard, who was up- , stairs now, grooming himself for the ■ approaching dance.

Turning away his head before ht had stared too tong, Roger was caught by the tragic intense look of old John Valaty. He sat looking at his son, his love and grief and pride naked for anybody to Ree. . , . They mustn't. “Sing something, Emilia. Sing 'Bondermeer's Stream,’ ” Roger said quickly. Emilia, smiling, golden, cupping one young hand formally into the other in the singer’s attitude as Bhe had been taught, swung to face them, and slid into the song. The two young, happy figures were a focus of youth and color and intensity un der the rose-colored lamplight. Young Dick Stoddard, clattering downstairs, handsome and trig and braced to be very much at ease in the great Valaty mansion, was struck silent at the stair-foot The father sat listening, drawn backward to a time which, since it was past, seemed more glamorous and romantic than this; a time when hia wife’s young hands on the same piano slipped from the saccharine Impertinences of “Tell Me, Pretty Malden,” and "Rhoda's Pagoda” to this song of her own mother’s, old and far away even then. The tw'o young men stared at Emilia, lost in her. They both re membered her. that music, that mo ment, till they were old. ltrlght-col orcd, warmly sweet, blue and rose and golden, at once giving and unat tainable, she stood there in the midst of the fire-scent and light and music. To Dick she was a story-book young lady for the adventurer to win out of the flimsy Zenda novels he read. To Roger she was Isolde and Elaine and Melisande out of his Malory and Maeterlinck and Wagner. But to them both she was the Princess, os her brother was the Comrade. In their different young adventuring dreams. She was the breath of a be lieving world, the high flare of a candle flame, and their youth was drunken with her, as the enchant ment of her song held them.
