"Pbll,'* she rebuked, "you don't seem to listen, I've told you twice, now, that it is only that. I can't start; It.&U over again. The waiting, and the hop- Ing, and quarreling, and the faultr finding, and the—" "Oh. but, no, Ann! No." ! "But, yes, Phil. This past month I've been unhappy—goodt. ness knows I have? But, someway, I've dragged something out of it, and I'm going to keep it-^some* thing that almost approaches peace. Suppose we were to begin again? After a while, but It wouldn't last eight years this time, you'd grow tired and hopeless, and all this—or something very much like it—would happen right over again." 'Ann, dearest, I swear to you—it bas meant nothing to me. Nothing but misery. I've been a ttwiv sand times more wretched tnan you could have been." "No, f think not, Tbat doesn't matter,' tBougn—our comparative wretchedness, I mean." "Could you tell me, dearest, ex actly what It is that matters—if ycur love doesn't.matter, and our misery doesn't matter?" . "I can't tell what U important tot you.

Shatter true, ideals and make false ones?" "Not false. Just different." "Ana, is there someone else? Have, you come to care for another man— in a month?" "No, no. Of course not." ."Ann, dearest, I want to ask you one Question. If all tbe obstacles to our marriage were removed, would you marry me tomorrow?" Yea, If I could marry you tomorrow. Please don't, Phil!" You don't care for my kisses any more? You dislike them?" * * * 44j UKB them too well. The ob-*• stacles aren't removed— they are getting bigger all tbe time, and there are more of them. It seems to me that all this— kissing and being ecstatic for moments, or even hours together, when nothing can come of It but another mean." miserable quarrel and another end, isn't so very different from forming any other bad habit." 'Ann, that is a horrible thing to say! You've changed. You never used to talk like tbat." "Of course I've changed. But 'the other is true. It is Just like a person -who keeps on drinking, wben be knows tbat drinking will kill biro in the end. I've heard that tbe cures for the drink habit are ter rible. Well, I've taken the cure, Phil, and I'm not going to take it again. I'm through, dear. Not because I wish to be through, but because I have to be." "I won't allow you to be. We both made a mistake, Ann. But I'll take ail tbe blame." "Neither of us was to blame. And neither of us would be to blame tbe next time." An automobile, two round bright ligbtft cutting tbe darkness, was coming up the driveway. Ann thought, "It's Grand and Rosalie. Vd forgotten all about them for hours.

I could support ber, yes," Ann Inserted, "But, Grand—" "One moment, if you please, Ann, Do you or do'you not love Philip?" Ann thought, "Dear heaven* above!

He should have gone wTien I asked blm to." "Will you please answer my question, Ann?" Still, she couldn't stand there and say she did not love Phil. It would be a lie, and it would be letting PhU down in public. "Of course I love Pbll," she said. "But—" ' "But me no buts," said Grand, He evidently was. in a mean humor. No wonder Cecily piisbed blm over this morning—though she badn't. What woqjd b» do when be went Into the bouse aad found Cecily and Barry in the parlor-? He was cross with Cissy, anyway. "And to4ou, Philip," Grand went on, "recalling again tbe lateness of tbe hour, goodnight." "Goodnight," said PhU, and bowed a neat bow. Grand and Rosalie crossed tbe porcb to tbe door.
