Don't you like them?" She,almost glared at Marjorie. Was Marjorie going to high-hat her now when she had been so pleased that she had a social advantage to offer her? "I've never been to a night club of course, but I don't think I Vould care to go," she said gently. "But if you've never been how do you know you don't like them?" "Why, I shouldn't care to go among people who are drnking," said Marjorie with a troubled look at her pretty sister. "Drinking! Why, for pity's sake' you wouldn't have to drink if you didn't want to, would you? And anyway, everybody drjnks in society today. It isn't courteous not to drink, I've heard. "Everybody doesn't drink, Betty, not in the society I know." "For pity's sake, and I've been envying you all the chances you've had to see life." "But I don't believe that's life, Betty," said Marjorie thoughtfully.' "The people I've seen who go in for that sort of thing look to me more as if they'd been seeing death than life. It always fills me full of honor to see people under the influence of liquor." "Oh, I don't mean really drunk," said Betty glibly, "people don't need to drink too much." "Don't they? I wonder why so many of them do, then!" "Oh, you don't seen so many drunk! They're only a little gay. They say a little drink or two makes you bright and interesting." "It makes people utterly silly," said Marjorie, "and entirely disgusting, I've, seen girls, coming home from vparties, sometimes in the public railroad station, acting like fools." "Then you won't go?" said Betty vexedly. No, Betty, I couldn't. I would n't feel at home in a night club." "I didn't know you were straitlaced." Is that strait-laced? I thought it was only a kind of refinement. Just plain decency." •Well, \ I'm sure most young people do those things today. All except fanatical people. Religious cranks, you know." I guess a good many do," said Marjorie, "but I don't like such things. I can't help it" "Oh, heavens! You sound just for all the world like Ted!" said Betty almost angrily. "Here I thought I.had something nice, to show you a good time, and you've spoiled it alL" 1 "I'm sorry, Betty, hut I couldn't hajp it. I couldn't go to places like that I just -wouldn't belong. I wouldn't feel it was the right thing." v Betty sulked almost all the way home, with stormy eyes averted, looking out the other side of the home Marjorie said sadly: , "Well, now I suppose you' won't want me to coma back and live with you, since you've fcund out I don't agree with you on the way to' have a good time." "Oh, forget it!" said Betty unhappily. That might before they went to sleep she had the grace to apologize to Marjorie for being disa^ greeable after Marjorie had got her so many-lovely things. But Marjorie lay . wakeful through several hours, and in her heart began to pray for her sister, the first prayer she had ever made for anybody else. How she would like to talk it over with Gideon Reaver! And then she fell asleep and dreamed that it was Gideon Reaver who had sat across from her at the hotel table and handed her the blue diamond and watched her while she-opened the box. Even in her dream a thrill of joy went through her heart When she awoke in the morning the first part of the dream was vivid, and the thrill in her heart was there whenever she thought of it, but "it was Gideon Reaver's eyes who looked into hers above the blue diamond, and not Evan Brower's eyes, and that troubled her. She must not allow her taxi. At last as they were nearing thoughts to wander off to absurd 1 things like that As if Gideon Reaver had any special interest in her, a stranger," to offer her diamonds, and touch her hands with that strange wonderful thrill. But Betty had slipped down to the store on some pretext a little after nine that morning and telephoned Ellery Aiken in the office. She told him that her sister could not come and therefore she would not be able to. But she had finally let him persuade her that she could come for just a little while. She came back to the house with a shamefaced look, and worked madly all day doing little extras for everybody, to make up for what she meant to do that evening.- After the dishes were done that night she hurried upstairs and came down in the pretty velvet dress that Marjorie had bought her. Marjorie looked up surprised. "How lovely you look, dear? Are you going out?" "Why, yes," said B.etty apologetically, "I have to, just a little ' while." CONTINUED THURSDAY V.R.
