He was still olive, she knew, trailing clouds of long-vanished glory through the halls of a home for indigent actors. . Since coining back to America, she had thought of him frequently —Sometimes with bitterness, more often with sorrow. Now she began to think o£ him with compunction. I True, it was he who had wronged her, yet ought she not to give him £ chance to show he "was sorry? Jle had always been selfish, arro- jfant, thoughtless. But was she not being all these things by fail- In* to get in touch with him? He, too, was elderly by now; he must kteoy Judging from his address, be pbpt.

[ .There were still two or three igood bedrooms unoccupied at Gray 'Shingles. How selfish to keep ithem so! .[ •; She would write to Godfrey in I the morning. JQNCE a year—and it had been It . going on for a good many ycara :ilow, in a good many countries— (Marcel began a portrait of Sophie [.However bored Sophie got will ^these ic'curring eternities gi sitting Godfrey was irailing- rlouiLs of vanished filory through the lialls of a home for indigent actors. till, she realized that as lone as Marcel had dedicated his art cx- ilusivcly lo her, it was incumbent ipon her to pose for him annually md buy the portrait for a sum lutlicicnt to keep the artist in ipending money, and consequently n self-respect. When they had >cen settled at Gray Shingles only i few days Marcel began his preparations, choosing the gown in which she was to sit and the background. Thc promise of artistic activity mode him happy and reconciled him, in small part, to the dreadful climate. On the morning he was to start, .vlarcel darted about his roam as if >c had to get through what he was doing before catching a train. He wore his green smock, sliff with the paint drippings of a decade, and the beret which he never removed lest lie take cold. "Help me," he ordered Sir Charles, want to get my case] set up. Already it's ten o'clock less ten and Sophie promised to sit for me at 'en o'clock." While they worked Sir Charles leased the Frenchman a little •ihout the portrait. "Don't tell me t's a year already since you started ihe last one.'" "Three iiundrcd and sixty-five days." "This is Icnp year, you know,' said Sir Charles. "You couiu wait until tomorrow." His little joke was lost on Mar- rcl, who skipped about fussily adjusting and measuring. '"I say," said thc butler. "Sophie has a letter downstairs from Him.' Marcel stopped still. Allhougl a ccrlain name had not been mentioned between them for years, lie knew instantly to whom 'si Charles referred. "Ticns!" he ex claimed. Sir Charles nodded. "Co saland!" It, was spoken ii n hiss. "What do you suppose Iv wants?" "Money, probably." "Trouble," said Marcel. "Notliini but trouble ever can conic fron him." r PHEY finished setting lip 111 • easel. Marcel considered it position, his head cocked. "I hnv iiskc'd that Sophie wear her rci brocade. She will sit in that ;;rcc velvet armchair." He began t pace the distance between cast and chair, moviiif; first one an then the other a few inches tlij way or that. Velvet and brocade!" exclaimed Sir Charles. "Good Lord, do want •tadame to he roasted alive? lly August she'll have (o stop sitting —in velvet and brocade!" "13y August," said Marcel, "she vilt probably lie wear in K furs." c began talking: half to himself. 1'ins crossed under thc shawl, "I oved her. What did I have to fjiv« icr? Nothing, Only everything. .Iy art. Did I fount the- cost? Jo! I could have been the grcntoit ->f thc Impressionists. I could have iven niy art (o (lie world. Instead —T give it to Sophie." Tliis was a well worn convcrsa- ional groove. "1C you'd given it o thc world," snid Sir Charles im- Mtieiitly, "it would hnvc saved Sophie a good many tedious years )f posing," MjKhmic's bedroom door was ipcncd across the hall and they lejii-cl the magnificent, resonant •oice,' carefully placed to carry ust as far as thc studio and no artlicr. "Marcel! Arc you ready or me?" The two men stepped to the door md stood in anticipation, one on inch side of it. "Do not give her he letter," Marcel whispered, 'until after she has sat for me. H will be less disturbing." As her 'oolsteps approached, they fell >ack slightly before her coming, so that her first appearance of a norning in her household could lave a little the quality of an En- .mnce. "Good morning, good morning/' said thc unique voice. * * » will CHARLES and Marcel gazed at her in admiration, almost ,-is £ they had never before beheld icr. "Sophie—l>ul you arc beautiful!" exclaimed Marcel. She gazed down with gratification on her long gown of red brocade, girdled with gold. "Dear^ Marcel," rhe ch.intcrl, meeting thn compliment halfway with outstretched hands. "Good morning, Sophie," Sir Charles, more restrained than :ho Frenchman and conlhiing hi.s compliments to the pride mul pleasure in his face. "I,uka -wants o know if you would like her to try a Nc-.v England boiled dinner." Sophie had moved lo Ihe wiu- :low and stood, with one arm raised, in contemplation of tha "jhlhonse on the point. "What did you say, Sir Charles?" "New England boiled dinner." "Oh, no! Marcel would hi.le it." "When in Home—" offered Sir Charles hopefully. The boiled clin- icr had been his own homesick idea, not that of the temperamental Hungarian cook. Hut Sophie had dismissed food from her miiul. She was confident it would be as she and Marcel liked it anyway: light at breakfast, subtle and crisp al luncheon, luscious and palatable al dinner. She turned now from the view. "Sir Cluirles, did I have n telegram?" "No, Madame." She sighed. Godfrey should have been more eager, lie ought to have wired or telephoned in his intoxication from llio knowledge he might see her soon, if :.c chose. He should feel as she did—a little tremulous, inlinilely tender, all forgiving. But of course ho never had. Why should lie have changed? Perhaps he even preferred the Actors' Home.
