Mary-Frances : would stop squirming, and was slightly sorry'/ •afiast,'that Phil had been disappointed about the picnic supper; in the, woods,'. f He was, she supposed, eating bis dinner alone as usual in the dining room of'his boarding'house. Philip lived at the-Dainmeron Apartment Hotel; but it was .his mood, always, to cair it a boarding house, as it .was his fancy never to mentlpnVthe jala'mg£ (rSonjj, without -prefixing th'e word basement. Ann thoue^it the 'Dammeron Hotel, with Its' 'deep carpets and big Chairs and mirrors and its orderly air of quiet com fort, a wholly desirable /place in which to Hve. This opinion, Philip told her, was possible because she was not forced to live there year in and year out. Long ago she had stopped urging him to todk for a place fie liked better, because to that there was but one answer. For the money he WAS paying he could not do better. Always, When th'e subject ot Philip's living arrangements wad introduced, Ann felt feloniously guilty because she Could not feel guilty at ail. Granted ,that a matt did need * reaVhome. So did a woman. She desffed that real home more tftfoflgty than Phil possibly could desire it, and It was not her fault that she couldn't make it for him. Nor was it her fault* that Phil had to economise because he sent $5D each mouth to his mother, who lived with his rich sister Bllse and Bllse's husband • in Oakland. The fact that Mr. Alnslie (Phil always called Ellse's husband "Mr. Alnslie"— odd, Ann thought) was very wealthy was all the more reason thai: Phil should contribute to Mrs". Edfoyd's Support, that part never wade sense- to Ann, though Phil explained it - with almost pompous references to pride.' /•< RAND said, "ADien,?;and raised blinking blue eyes and a benign expression to bis family. The -be- nlgnancy faded to sorrow when he noticed Cecily's empty chair. "Ann; my dear, was it. necessary to sit down to our evening meal before Cecily arrived to 'take her place with us?" ;'•,"" "Cecily isn't coming. Grand.

"And where," Grand demanded, not even looking for .the spoon, "is our' Cecily, may I ask?" * Ann said, "She has gone out with Mr. McKeel, Grand. You .liked lilm. didn't you'?" "I do not know that I did. I do not form' m'y opinions of any person from one short-interview.

"Interruptions,* he said, "are not, my darling, in the best of taste. However, since you have Interrupted, you way now make your question more clear." "What question?" said Mary- Frances. Grand brought his white eyebrows closer together and turned tbe wrathful expression so attained not on Mary-Prances but hard on Ann. "Courtship," Rosalie's sweet frolce arrived in the nick of time, "is hot the same today as it was in ouf day, Jonathan dear." 'It is not," said Grand. "It is not indeed. Nor does it," he proceeded, still frowning straight at Ann, "apparently culminate as It was wont to culminate In our day." "How?" said Mary-Frances. "In marriage, my darling," said Grand, choosing to understand the question so. "In marriage." "All of them?" questioned Mary- Frances Intensely. Grand, who prided himself upon having a sense of humor, though for long stretches of time he forgot all about having it, remembered It now and laughed heartily. (Grand always laughed "heartily" if he laughed at all, except the times when he "chuckled.") Rosalie laughed with him. She had found one ot the successes of married life in always laughing With her husband. Mary-Frances, at an age'when laughter at her expense was' the iron, -squirmed and sulked, and Ann could smile but faintly. It was sort of mean to laugh at the precious baby, and besides, Ann was still disturbed by the notion that Grand was blaming her for something, and she had no way of discovering what It could be. The telephone bell rang. The Fenwick fanjily declared, along with several million other families in the United States, that their telephone never rang except at meal times. Mary-Frances jumped to an- p\yer Jt. "Maybe it's Ermintrude." she said. "It .it Is," Ann warned, "don't make any -plans for this evening. Phil has an engagement, and I want you to help me clean tbe front hall." "Oh, Ermintrude!" said Mary- Frances, who was not one to hold a grudge against her best friend and sole confidant. "Yes, I have my algebra." (To Be Continued) Mt.
