IV Five persons gathered in a solemn little conclave about the pulpit, .tour facing it, the fifth speak- ng low. The first two of the four side by side; the second two flank- ng them.

Antoirtc's, rushing, all alight toward its nightly rendezvous with midnight; glittering, glowing, mirrored; crowded with celebrants singing with laughter, sizzling with champagne; sparkling with half-a- thousand jeweled gas flames all over its ceilings and walls, in bowers of crystal; the gayest and best-known restaurant on this side o£ the ocean; the soul of Paris springing enchanted from the Delta mud. The wedding table stretched lengthwise along one entire aide of the room. He was in suitable evening garb now, and a quick trip to a dress- shop (first at her mention, but then at his insistence) before coming on here had changed her from her costume of arrival to a glorious creation of shimmering white satin, gardenias in her hair and at her throat. On the third finger ol her left hand the new gold wedding-band; on the fourth, a solitaire diamond, a husband's wcd- wing gift to his wife, token of an engagement contract fulfilled. whispers to her. "It's Retting on to twelve." "Yes. One more dance together first. Ask them to play again. And then we'll lose oursefvcs, without coming back to the table." The house was empty, waiting.

The same blend of wood shavings, paint, and putty spiced with a clash of floor varnish, was siill in evidence, but to a far lesser degree now, for carpets had been laid over the raw lloors, drapes hung athwart the window casings. Someone had brought flowers into the parlor. A clock had been wound up and started on its course. Everything was ready. A house, waiting for a man and his wife to come and claim it. The resonant, cuplike sound' of a horse's hoofs drew near in the silliness outside, came to a halt on a double down-beat. Axles creaked with a shift of weight, then settled again. A human tongue clicked professionally, then the hoofs recommenced, thinned away into silence once more. There was a slight scrape o£ leather on paving stone, a mischievous little whisper, like a secret told by one foot to another. And her eyes, any new wearer's, stray over and over to these new adornments. But whether they go more often to the third finger or to the fourth, who is to detect and who is to say? Flowers, wine, friendly laughing faces, toasts and wishes of well- being. The beginning of two lives. Or rather, the ending of two, the beginning of one. A moment afterward key turned in the outside of the dooi They stood there .revealed in the opening, Durand and she. Limned amber by the light before them in the house, framed by a panel of night sky sanded with stars behind them and over their heads. They were motionless, as oblivious ot what lay before them as of what lay behind them. Face turned to meet face, his arms about her, her hands on his shoulders. Nothing moved, neither they nor the stars at their back nor the opcn-doorcd house waiting to receive them. It was one of those moments never to be captured for, either in the knotting or 'Shall we sliu away now he The kiss at the threshold of marriage.
