For one thing, Mike with his clamorous demands for "More toast,, EH«n" and "Just a little, teeny Wt ot your coffee, Mom/' made any sustained discussion fin- possible. But after he had gulped his food and SCTinpored a<ray, Molly was at the fascinating topic again. Ehe went straight to the main issue, "Mr. Barclay is a bachelor, isti't he, Ellen?" . "I don't know and don V «»«»." Ellen answered on a note of rising resentment. "Oh, dear! I'm sorry," she apologized, as tears welled up in Molly's eyes. "I didn't mean to be rude. I just bated being mado a Homan holiday. I think he's a widower." "Grpss," supplied Myra. "He's been married twice. I don't know what happened to his first wife but he divorced the second one—got a Mexican divorce. The papers were full ot it at the time." Myra concluded seH-consclouc'y, "The second Mrs. Barclay was Leda O ray son —that notorious dancer. There was a terrific scandal." "Oh,"'sail Molly uncertainly. She was dashed. "Then that's different." "It wasn't his fault," Ellen put in sullenly, reluctantly compelled to coma to Steven Barclay's defense. "I remember the whole story now. It was all t' t woman's fault." "I should say it was her fault," Myra commented warmly. She am pllfled her statement. "Leda Gray eon cheated from the first but Mr. Barclay was chivalrous enough to getMlrQreeia-- bility or something. Everything VM fettled In secret but they say she got 11,000,000 for taking back her maiden came. Nobody crlti sized him at all." That's good. Then everything's all. right," sighed Molly, relieved and not ashamed to show it. "I felt sure be wouldn't have shown Ellen attention if talogs hadn't been all right." "What we yon trying to do?" asked Ellen in a tone which she hoped hid her annoyance. "Make me Steven Barclay's third wife 94 the strenfth of a few flowers?" "You ea« tajfc like that, young lady, but you can't tool youi nwtfci/." Molly detfBrad in her airy a4aumD|i9tf iB| wphlstlcated matur Ity.

You're only trying to .brow dust In our eyes." • » • • Was furious. She Was conscious all the time that she< was being Ill-natured and ungracious, conscious tbat ahe was blam- ng Steven Barclay because his flowers were not from another man, blaming him,, as well, tor her mother's .foolishness. But she could barely restrain herself from rushing from the table when Molly began to 3lan for future engagements with Barclay. You'll need two or three light little dresses for evening," she was saying. "Luckfly s It's summer and you can wear anything. I do wish your Aunt Myra would send another box. It's about time for one." "What are you thinking of, mother?" Ellen protested in a vain attempt to check the tide, "You're making tremendous plans on nothing at all. i won't have it!" "Well," responded Molly, hurt, "If you don't want us to share your pleasures with you—why I guess—" Ellen was suddenly remorseful. Mother was mother, delightful, feather-headed, irresponsible. There was no need to destroy her gayety. As she comforted her, Ellen's amused tolerant look went to meet Myra's self-conscious eyes. And she saw with an unpleasant shock that steady, sensible Myra, for once, bad sided against her. Myra believed she bad been deliberately coquettish. Molly readily forgave the grave injury that Ellen had done her. The ea»y teats dried and she was laughing, sparkling again. "You'd better be good to me," she gayiy rebuked Ellen. "I've a surprise I've been keeping tor you. Yesterday after you telephoned about not having the right drags I w*»t out and bought you a lovely printed chiffon with the cunningest little jacket tbat you take 08 when you *MM»." Tliere vas an appalled silence. Molly added nervously, defen stvely, "It was 9. great bargain and since we didn't have enough money to flay the rent anyway, why, I thought—" "Oh, mother," walled Myra, "can't you see there's no point at all in Ellen's working herselt to death at Dreamland if all the extra money Is 1 to go for her clothes?" "But now she can return the other dress to Mr. Barclay and start out right with him," argued Molly. "It'll come in handy anyhow. You'll see. Things are starting to happen to Ellen. No one knows how long she'll have to work anyway." Ellen saw her way clear at last. "I love working at Dreamland," sho said. "It's not work. It's fun there, I want to keep on. I met someone—well anyway I wouldn't give up going there for anything," she finished confusedly. • • • AS Myra and Mollj', their argu- ** ment forgotten, turned their startled eyes on her she was conscious that she was blushing. There was a long silence in the- cluttered dining room where the sunshine, already growing hotter, trickled through curtains of cheap theatrical gauze and shone on the fine old mahogany table where two pretty girls sat with their pretty, dark mother. Ellen, the soft flush receding from her cheeks, was thinking of Larry Harrowgate—his gray eyes and his quick, infectious laugh, the way he had said he was glad be bad found her. She was thinking that she would see him soon, soon. Scatter-brained Molly, rebellious and alarmed, was thinking too. Something had arisen to menace the bright fancies she had been weaving. What was there to say? What was there to do? A certain hardness in Ellen's aquare flushed jaw warned her that tears would be useless. So she held ber silence, Myra's thoughts were darting from Bert to Ellen. She was r«t memhering th,e way she had loved Bert in the beginning, was re»«n- tt* way that love bad tad#4 with endless waiting. Surely Ellen, could not in the brlet space ot ohe night have met another Bert. Surely life could not be so cruel just when it had seemed things were to be easier, just when, she admitted Honestly, it had seemed nthat Ellen had at last met the man who Was to rescue them all. "Did you mean anything special, Ellen?" Myra spoke at last with effort and hoped that Ellen's jeering laugh 'would prove her wrong. But Ellen did not laugh. "No, I didn't mean anything special," she replied uncomfortably, after an appreciable pause. "That's why you weren't pleased over "the flowers.' isn't it?" Myra persisted. "It was because you met someone you liked better hist night at Dreamland? You spoke of meet- Ing someone there. It was a man, wasn't it, a man that you liked?" Her, breath rose and fell on a long sigh. "Yes, I did," Ellen replied defiantly, her bright, hostile eyes moving from her sister to her mother and back again. "Furthermore, I hops you and mother will be kind enough to let me handle my own affairs. I don't meddle/ in yours." , "I'm sorry, dear." "Don't 'dear' me!" burst but Ellen furiously. "You and mother—both of you—make me sick. We're poor. All right, I can recoup the family fortunes by trying to trap a rich man into marriage. That's a fine and honorable solution. That's lust greatl It makes no difference what I—" CHE burst unexpectedly into tears ''-'and rushing from the table ran Into the bedroom and flung herself upon the bed. When Myra followed and sat down on the bed she refused to speak except to insist hysterically that she be left alone. "Listen to me," Myra pleaded tearfully, resisting Ellen's efforts to force her away. "Listen now. You'll cry yourself sick. I'll be crying if you don't ston. I—I'm crying now." "You've spoiled everything," Ellen sobbed, her voice muffled by pillows, "We couldn't Not It you feel aa I think you do. Mother and I wera wrong and selfish. But we didn't understand, didn't know how It was. How could we? It's breaking my heart tbat you think I'm such A brute." They bad shared every emotion, every thought, almost every action from babyhood. §oon they were in each other's arms, crying together and then laughing. Ellen wiped' her streaming eyes and swung her feet over to the floor. "I must look a fright," she said shakily. She went to the mirror to examine her reddened eyes. She began vigorously to dab on powder, conscious that Myra, cross-legged on the bed and still somewhat tearful, was watching. "I'm sorry I said such things," Ellen began in a shamed voice. "You were perfectly right. 'You should have been angry. I didn't realize, and I know mother didn't, how selfish we were being." "No, it was my fault," insisted Ellen, eager now for her share of the blame. "I don't know what got into me. Thank goodness it's over now." The ugliness of the scene in the dining room was forgotten. The sister* were friends again. Presently Myra spoke lightly of the young nan Ellen had met at Dreamland. What was he like? What was bU name? Thus the first storm of a day that was to prove memorable for EH»n Bossiter faded away. tt'a Be .
