It was lard to 'Imagine that distinguished, grsyjng'man'.who wore clothes so ijarejtuljy cut, so -indicative of wealth, in; such ( a role,, But she could visualize,clearly the young wife who had w&ated a pink dress with pink ribbons.- ,, "No one offered-to give her that dress,?'Barclay continued.

"Young people haven't change^ much in, spite of all the shoutlne," Barclay observed obliquely. Still afraid, aren't they, to accept a favor to do-a ^greater f avorj? just as suspicious, just as tional and every bit as proud. You, I'm sure, -would never allow me to give you a.lift. You wouldn't ,«4- low me r would you, to give you one dress from a .store which has hundreds of them? You'd s rather hug your troubles to yourself, worry yourself sick, wouldn't you? You'd rather he selfish." '.'I'm afraid I would," Ellen admitted.' Barclay's smile was rueful. He made one .more attempt . ' "Yon know, of course, that you are depriving me ot a great pleas ure. Are .you sure you have that right?", , • Ellen felt confused. Was it pos sible .that she was too stiff-necked as he had accused her of being, toe conventional, too careful entirely' Then she decided, so quickly thai there was almost no pause' befori she answered, that even if she werj it was too late to change. "I'm: sure I have that right," she said. Her tone was resolute but . her; consent for granted, ho turned at once, to ring a oell. Ellen had neither the heart nor the wish to demur. Indeed, she felt her spirits rising. By so simple an'act. as ringing; a bell, SteVen, Barclay tad settled the problem of where J» Hoeslter rent was to come from. With the help of a borrowed dress It was .coming from Dreamland-*'"" i A few minutes later a saleswoman arrived with a. lovely cargo of evening dresses. Steven Barclay-had flipped away. Ellen was alo&e, <iu :he office. She appreciated the department Store owner's tact and his wisdom. Barclay's was notoriously a hotbed of gossip. The tiniest Incident that Involved Steven Barclay Was always of abnormal interest-to Us employees, v Fortunately the saleswoman who brought-ithe ;gbwhS was placidly Inctiriouw "."•' The next 15 minutes wore sheer heaven for' Ellen. She had never owned an evening gown, "evening gowns being one of the items invariably missing from Ajmt Myra's boxes. She had -not knoWn^lt - would be'such fun to select a ;gown only because :it made her beautiful. »••; • She stood before a long ju.iiyi- and held up before bera$f}i;^na/jBy'? one, gowns that she was - cpjijfi^'-"' were the loveliest In ' ' was pure bliss to see .-„,,„_., „.. line and color seemed^'.^HJmbstf Jo change her personality a*'; they did change her appearance, not even tbo trying burnt orange orMth'4 deep _ -,«!»her clear skin or deaSeti ** < n«ight hair. ft f »w»n she came upon the. gown of nrory taffeta she knew she l.ad found her dress. • It did'not SinTte' her an ingenue. It did pot make her a duchess, it did not: mak» her mysterious. It only'made hpr Ellen Rossiter, a girl of 20, clflsV eyed and clear-skinned, a girl with slender .hands and slender teot, beautiful, but more than that, a girl who was genuine and ( secure in her own personality. There were no ornaments, no frills on Ellen's dress. It. was only white taffeta falling to the floor. But It had been made in France by a great couturier who called his creation "Jeune Fille.". ( Barclay returned after Ellen had Been the other gowns carried away. He glanced at the ivory taffeta over- her arm. He hesitated and then said: . "I'tt glad you selected that ono." As Ellen looked into his eyes she saw with a little sljock, halt ot tear and halt of strange .pride, that life was suddenly becoming exciting.
