They climbed the ^rustic steps, and followed the ;lcranky stumbling path, and came to the car parked beneath spme fir trees on the byroad. ^ Cecily looked up at the fir trees • and the moon, and boldly and with- i out warning Barry kissed her. The universe reeled over her head, and her own two feet she could :£eel the roll of the world, and she ^forgot Bea and Constance and her |^chauffeur; she forgot Cecily Fen- Ick; she forgot Barry, almost, un- 1 his arms drew her closer and he you didn't approve much of mm 1 - riage." His happiness could not encompass her gravity. "I don't. I stubbornly disapprove of all marriages ex'ep 1 yours and mine, which is to take place tomorrow morning very early." "But on the porch at Maria's, that first evening, you said—" There was nothing to do but stop that instantly with another kiss. "Dearest," she said. "Darling," said he, and went on. "I was a fool that evening, Cecily —I love your name. An ignorant, opinionated fool. The less I know, the longer and louder I talk. It's a habit I've formed. I did have a down on marriage, because dad and mother made-a mess of theirs. I wish I hadn't told you—at least, not Until later. Does it make a difference, Cecily? Their being divorced, I mean?" * * • 4iT»ARRY! How can you be so •*-* absurd? How could that make a difference?" "But something," he insisted, "seems to be making a difference. Or is it— Well, is It that you just don't wish to marry me?" "No, dear. No. I do wish to. But—" t want you to marry me. I'll wait, if you make toe. I'll watt a week —even two. But 1 don't want to wait. Do you? No. sir, you can't. Why need we? Come, let's sit 'in tha car.. You're 'tired*,' standing there. Now, then. You don't want to 'Walt a long long time to marry me, do you? Do you? Do you?" She settled back into" the cushion and refused with ono/flash to thin of Ann and Grand and* Rosalie, o the house, Educational and the Very-Fane Fund, and said hon estly, "But; Barry, I hadn't though of marriage. One has to thin about it, you know. A girl does anyway—and a man should. "I have," he declared. "I'll ad mil that my speeches this evening have had an unfortunate extempora neous quality—that's your fault You go to my head. The minute : met you I was afraid I was going to ask you to marry me. I was afraid all that night. The next day, when we had luncheon to gether, and ever since then, I've been afraid I'd never get up enough courage to ask you. So, with this and that, marriage hasn't been out of my mind for more than a few seconds since I met you—and looked at you and loved you. You won't think I'm critical, will you, darling, if I say it seems sort of queer that you hadn't f?iven it one thought?" * • * «T'VE thought a lot about love," •*• she confessed. "But I hadn't gone further than that—not into marriage." "Cecily," he said, and his horror was but faintly exaggerated, "yoi aren't the sort of girl who goes anc gets marriage all mixed up with monograms and guest towels anc table napkins—are you?' "No " she denied. "But marriage "We're engaged!" He caught lier bands and did some crazy dance steps and called to the trees and :he moon, "We're engaged. We'll be married in the sounds like a song. morning. It It is a song. faald. "Now you kiss me." ?? AftetMthat h.e- said, "I love you," three" time's, .rapidly, and stopped. "Sax it again, Barry. Just say ft again." "fYou say It." She,said it, and added a "dear," .for, good measure, as generous women are prone to do. "You'll marry me," he stated. "I .mean—when? I mean, darling, you won't you?" No, he did not do Let's both sing it. We'll be married n the morning. We'll be married in the morning. We'll be married in the morn — ing. To .that we both agree. Why don't you sing, darling?" "I can't," she said. ""Well, then, why don't you clap??, She was glad that Barry had suejv a splendid singing voice. She. was: glad that he was so happy and silly'; but. she could not understand why he! was. Her own happiness made her feel quiet and grave and almost solemn. "I know," he said. "You think I am making a joke out of the most stupendously serious thing in the world. It isn't that, Cecily. I'm not sure what it is. It seems to be that I've gone mad— drunk?— im- becllic, maybe, with happiness. But underneath I'm wholly and deeply serious. I love you, darling— and does bring lots of other—well, practical considerations. Let's don't, for a while. Let's .just be happy, and in love, and not ,go worrying about marriage." Practical? He nabbed It grimly. So that was the trouble? He had forgotten to be practical. She .was like that? Well—women,, all women were, he supposed, "It is this way, clear," hp jraMi "I'm,not in debt, and I liav<£a t tew htindfed dollars saved—I'd have*fiad more but for the doctors—so on. • I have a job fairly good /because of its per- ; manency. It doesn't pay a lot, but J.'m sure we could live on it for a time out here, with prices as they are. Other people live on much less. Later—" •• • > , Her hand, fragrantly cool, had gone up over his lips. "No, Barry. It Isn't that. Really it 'isn't." He had wished to continue, and tell her again about the book, and how he believed -in' it', and Joseph Ammlngton, the-New York editor and critic—who, niarvelously, was also his friend—believed in it, and why. He had wished to tell her about other books, that were to fol- low this one. He hnd wished to plan and dream about them and about how she was to help him, So, though he kissed her fingers before he took them away, he said, "Very well," with an appealing imi. tation of indifference. Cecily thought, "He thinks thai It is because ho isn't a rich man, He thinks that I am greedy and calculating." She denied it desperately. "No! Barry, clearest- no! It Isn't money nor jobs nor things of the sort. I don't care a bit about any of that. It is only— that I can't marry." "Cecily! What are you saying? You aren't married now, are you?" No of course not. But—" His sudden relief brought resent ment with it. "Then," ho said, "suppose we take a shot at being sensible for a moment or two and stop talking like characters in an O'Neill play. If you aren't married, and if you care for me as you seemed to not so long ago, there is 10 reason on earth why we can't be married, nnd soon." • * * 4 V.ES," she said, "there arc ever so many reasons." She spoke n a small, conventional voice, as f she were making chatty conver- ation with a stranger who was, bove all things, a stickler for the wholly sensible. "You see, I hap- en to be one of the heads of a ousehold. If you were married ow, and had'a family, you couldn't esert them all and marry me at nee." "Cecily, darling, what is the mat- r? I'm not married. You aren't married." "But it is much the same. Ann and I often have said so. You see, Ann and I love each other more than many married people do, I am sure. And we've shared everything, including responsibilities and clothes, and hopes, and work, and fun, and money, and everything, ince—well, since mother and father died." Water Floods Store Building "Cecily, sweet" lie objected, "you aren't going sentimental, are you, and self-sacrificial and all that?" "If it is sentimental to pay the trocer and the butcher, and see that the family has a place to livo, and that Mary-Frances has an education, I've gone already, years ago Ann makes 525 a week. I make ?30. It takes every cent of It—" "But, darling 1 " he interrupted, 'never mind about that. It is you,., qua you, in whom I'm Interested. /You don't lovo Anymore tban yoivyi oye me, dj you?" ' . ',.' "It Is entirely different," she said,. and added irrelevantly, "Ann didn't:' rush off and marry Phil the minute' he asked her. They have been en- aged for eight years." He simulated a shudder. "Hear me, you woman person. I'm not oing to wait eight years nor eight months, nor eight weeks for you." ' r (To Bo Continued) Fire Destroys Bain Home On Route I Spilled Kerosene Ignites and Spread* to Walls in Few Minutes The home of W. T. Bain, who live two miles east of town on whnt is known as the old Arkndelphia road was destroyed by fire early Monday morning. All/of the contents of the house were lost. The fire was caused by a small amount of kerosene being spilled on the floor and in some manner catching fire. The flames from the burning kerosene on the floor quickly spread to the wall and in a few minutes the whole house was burning Only Mr. Bain's wife and two of the younger children were at home. Mrs. Bain was slightly burned before she was able t<J> get out of tht way of the flames. None of the household effects was saved as it was impossible to enter the buring building by the time help arrived from the nearest house about a uarter of a mile away. • i • Rosston Rt. 2 Health is good in our community.
