To her he went with the gayety, the lightness and laughter in the world. She knew he was an artist but when she had teased him for details of bis work he only told her lightly that be was not an over-zealous art 1st. So she was considerably surprised a few days later when he came to added. "You do see, don't you?" she asked appealingly. "I never, saw a girt like you," Larry said wonderingly. "You don't drink. You don't smoke. And here you are Insisting that you have a chaperon while I paint you in,a gijwn Queen Victoria would have worn it she'd bad the figure for it." The light note went out ot his voice. He pursued the subject with a kind ot reluctant and unwilling admiration: "You're a queer little Puritan, Ellen, but I'm not sure I don't ad- mlro you for it. Girls nowadays are too tree and easy—the kind I seem to know, anyhow. They've tossed away a lot trying to grab off the sort ot freedom that doesn't seem to make them happy when they get It It seems a silly thing to iay, but I'm going to say it. You're a wise little girl. Ellen." He caught his breath and laughed a confused, uncertain laugh. hurt Steven many times she knew. At luncheon with him her thoughts would stray to Larry. Sbe would wonder what he was doing, where he was, what he was saying In those hours he spent away from her. Tben she would start with a sudden realization tbat she lad heard .not one word ot what Steven had been saying. Larry, even if he had been more honest with, her, ahe knew would still remain one of those, suitors who can never be depended on. He blew hot and blew cold; laughing a gale one minute and quarreling iereely over nothing the next. Alter tbose spirited quarrels he generally stalked away without a word. Ellen would cry herself to sleep, convinced she would never see him again. Tbo next night he would It wasn't much, ured those words. * 4 But Ellen treas- 0 she went to dreams ot Larry, different side of FTEN during the next two weeks sleep dreaming Sbe was seeing a him these days, was learning that he could work as well as play at high tension.

A special show— the Shane Show he explained—was to be held in six months, It he could get one of the prizes for portraits his reputation would be made. Ellen's first impulse was to refuse him, She was too busy. Surely ha could get someone better tor a portrait, e, society woman perhaps or an actress, someone well known. But he persisted. It would take only such a little time he pleaded. If she couldn't or wouldn't pose, then be simply would not enter the competition. Ellen hesitated, torn between prudence and desire. At last, against her better Judgment, ?he agreed to do as he wished. "Ah,.you're a darling to say you will," be exclaimed la relief and satisfaction. "I won't take much of your time. My studio has night lights things. Sometimes if you're not too tired we could drop in there alter you're through here." Agflin tbe girl hesitated. "j don't want to sound like 4 prude," she said frankly, "but I'm afraid' I couldn't do that." Seeing he was puzzled, she went on, her clear, candid eyes on his. "My mother wouldn't hear of such a thing—aud not because she doe»at Ilka you, either, it's because she's old-fasblon&d, I guesj, aa4 I'm old-fashioned, too, I cojjldn/t f» to your studio at olgbt without a chaperoa. { woiiWt fttei s)fb£ about it. "It would be all right on Mondays and times like tbat though- she had received thq increased sal ary at the store but the additional money from Dreamland was stll necessary. Not for much longer Ellen hoped. Molly, fretful and distressed over the continuous companionship with Larry and not to be consoled by the fact that Ellen was seeing a gr«* deal of Steven at tbe store, hac grown strangely apathetic. Shi seemed temporarily to have lost her abljlty to spend money before J was earned. Nevertheless Ellen had often tba feeling ot a tight-wire walker. She knew, did Ellen, bow easily a budget can be upset. There were other things that gave her the feeling of a tight-wire walker. For one thing, even though she gave him countless opportunities, even though she could feel that he and she were coming closer and closer to some inevitable climax, Larry failed to say one word about his engagement. The name of Elizabeth Bowes, tbe gay debutante who was flitting over Europe before, returning for her autumn wedding, had never been mentioned between them. Even as she tell more and more helplessly ia love with Larry, BJieu pould not forget bow unfairly he was treating her. She va* attempting to crowd I<M> actiooj, too, much «eitenieut. turn up at Dreamland, unabashed and unrepeutent, the cause of Ufa quarrel and the quarrel itself forgotten. Oh, it was maddening never to know where one stood, thought little Ellen aa thousands of other girls have thought. • • CHE had some times the strange ^feeling that In this double, or, rather, triple life she was leading she was losing Molly, losing Myra and little Mike, losing touch with her home as sho was certainly losing touch with her duties at the store. She knew that Loreno Elcott was disappointed in her though nothing had been said. She knew all these things and yet could not feel regretful. Larry's very contradictions were a delight; the burning, feverish love, she felt for him was an answer to her wild, young prayers of the year before. . Nothing mattered when she was with him except that she go often Aid at the contradictions in the man. The studio was bare and plain, so obviously the room of a workman that it seemed incredible Larry could have chosea it, incredible that he iiUed there so well. She was cramped and- Ured from the continuous strain ot posing but she was very light hearted. Sho sat down at the dusty grand piano which commanded one corner, pushed back the top and attempted to remember enough ot her childhood instruction to pick out a aim* pie melody. Tho instrument waa badly out ot tune and her amateurish efforts were ludicrous. Sbe waa giggling at the discordancy when the door opened and Larry camo in, laden with green bottles and a brown bag of sandwiches. She shook her head when he Insisted that she keep up the good work and rose hastily. So hastily, that she knocked to the floor a photograph which had been lying face downward on tho piano. She picked it up and gazed at the photograph. Smiling out at her was the faca of Elizabeth Bowes. ' Ellen's heart failed at this visual evidence of tho unknown girl's possession of the man she loved. She felt as if the blood were draining slowly from, her body. "Oh," she said, after a horrible, endless-interval, "What a—a pretty, girl." "Yes, Isn't she," Larry agreed. He put down the bottles and the hag of sandwiches, came over and removed the photograph from Ellen's fingers and laid it back on the piano face down, "She's rather a good sort," be top many emotloua into H Sb* yaj always awiagtag to* W4 lor^a from Steven to Larry- Oa ttw one side was coeunon sense aod ou tb* «tb,eP was bar she should please him. Nothing mattered except that here was another evening", an evening when she might learn where she stood with him. She was always straining toward that issue. Always he was eluding it. Then came an August night when Bert and Myra accompanied her to the studjo, one of the free Mondays that came all too seldom. It was Insufferably hot eveu with tbe studio skylight wide open and all the casement wludowa denuded ot curtains and swung out into the airless, starry night. At about 8 o'clock Bert protested be could bear no more and dragged Myra out to a neighborhood movie. They were returning for lilllen at 10, the hour the posing Invariably was ended. Larry worked for some time after they left, absorbedly mixing bis colors and absently wiping his brush 011 his faded smock, standing off to observe an effect, squinting at the canvas and then at Ellen almost as though he bad never seen her before. But at 9 be flung down his brush, announced that it was too bot for anything except suicide, and banged off downstairs for ginger 'ale. left alone In tba studio, 94^ . jjja.rye.Uaj; said casually. "A friend of mine, "What do you say we eat?" Ellen, a bright fixed smile on her face and death in her heart, agreed that they should e.at. Oh. why hadn't he told her the whole truthT She thought she could have forgiven him everything if only be had told her. She desired passionately to plot him forever from her sight and from her memory. She wanted, to tell him that, brutally and cruelly. She desired that be should be hurt as she herself had been hurt. But she restrained her passionate, accusing words. She said only that she would dress while he laid but the simple meal. Her voice sounded flat and tame. "What's wrong with you?" Larry asked, puzzled. She wanted to cry out that be knew well enough what was wrong. She wanted to tax him with lying— but he had not llutl. There was no reason in tbe world why be should tell ber everything. He had never promised to be more to her than what he was—a playmate. "What'a wrong with you?" Larry repeated.
