Why Iinrt Barney Shields nbl conic to Iho station to say goodby' As long as her eyes were, on fli< flying countryside she could racl her brain for answers ancl nursi her wounded feelings. "Would you like something ti r«ul?" John Mitchell asked. "Xo, thank you." "Il'in!" She was lo become familiar with that monosyllabic re- but It held no meaning then. Mitchell fohlcd Ills own newspaper and laid it beside him. Ho took a watcii from bis waistcoat, snapped bad; tho lid and looked at it. "In Ihrcc hours." be said, "we'll lie in New York- H'm!" Celia felt that she should say something, but her lips would not move. Two large reil circles were turning in nor checks. "You've never secu New York?" ho couliniiPd. "No, I've no idea what it's like. Tall buildings, I suppose, and noiso arnl everyone hurrying. That's tlie way I've pictured It. Is it' Ilke'ttial?" Mitchell nodded gravely. "Yes—at least pan of it. You'll find it fairly tinict in my mother's home." Celia couhl Ihiuk of no suitable rcpiy and remained quiet. Her heart v,-as beating rapidly. "It's an obi section of the clly," Mitchell n'ent on. "Gramercy Park. Lived tlier* »-ben I was a hoy. bu* about Ilia man to remind her of ersclf. Celia thought ho hud the oldest, most Impersonal expression lio had ever seen.

Generally goes up in New England, but tills year—;it K-ast or a time—she's decided to stny n the city." Cclla's misgivings Increased. Sho ind.not considered Uio prospect of acquiring a grandmother. Grand- nolhers, as sho pictured llicm, should be old Indies dressed In lavender with liltlc caps of lace on .heir heads and spectacles on their loses. Silo thought ut such a grandmother Bluing lu a rocking clmtr nnd knttling. "Of course Elie'll seo that you meet young people." Mitchell nalil, us though lio had read tbo girl's .noughts. There was a pause and Hie man leturncd to Ills newspaper. Cclia glanced timidly about the car. She liopcd no oao would guess that It was her first trip in a. parlor car. Slio eyed tbo other travelers curl- on sly. A girl about her own ago sat n few scats distant. Slio hart black liatr, combed away from her face, ami very red lips. Slio wore a black dress. A young man sat beside the girl and the two were In galas of laughter. "He isn't as good looking as llarney," Celia: thought lo herself. The thought brought a stab of pain. She turned back to her window and tried to remember all the tilings llarney had said the night before. The sun was directly in tlio west now. A white-clad colored niun came through tiie car, announcing that dinner was served. A man nnd two womcti arose and followed him. Mitchell asked Celia it she would .Ike lo dine. She said she was not liuugry. The litlle watch on the girl's wrist lohl her that It was six o'clock.. Her mother would be getting her evening meal. What was she cooking? It made Cclia sad to think of her mother alono at tho table where tlio two of them bad Her father ordered. Ho was Insistent In directing that tho steak should not bo over-done anil that tlio chceso must bo well ripened. Mitchell seemed -*- 1 lo rccelvo tho same prompt del- cronco Cella noted. It niado him nioro nwc-iusplring than before. Elio had lltllo to say as tbo meal wes served. Her father alo licart- lly. After ono or two attempts nt corn-creation ho devoted hltisclt to the food.

Cella selected a magaztuo dad tried to cnterlaln herself. She was surprised when Mllrtioll touched her arm. "Almost thcvc," ho Bald. "Aro you ready?" "You mean we're In Ntw York? 1 "Xo, no! Havo to cross Ihe river yet This la Jersey Clly. We change lo Iho bus here." Somo of tho women in Ihc car were pulling on contu [(nil hula. Cella took tbo tiny vanity case from her purse, patted her nose with powder and pulled on her gloves. Tlio conductor's siiout mug through tho cat 1 . '"All out!" Tho girl scrambled to her feet, followed closely behind her falbcr In tho jircES toward tho door ot the car, then across tho pavement to Iho long line of waiting motov coaches. "This our bus?" "Yes, sir. Twenty-third street!" Ihe uniformed attendant answered. Mitchell helped Cclia into the coach. alwavs Sho wondered how Mrs. Hogers would spend the evening. A liltlo later Mitchell led the way to the dining car. Celia was impressed by the array of silver and linen and tho heavy trayg the waiters bore so easily. Sho could not conceal her wonder at this traveling restaurauL "Sliort ride now," he said. ""6 homo In half an hour." She watched with wjde eyes as Iho coacli was driven on the ferry boat. Suddenly beforo her loomed thu horizon of New York. "Over there!" her father nodded. 'That's tho city." Cclia leaned forward and studied tlio panorama. Towers, spires and squat lower outlines darkly visible against tha graying sky. Flashes of gold glinting from myriads of windows. Tho dark, wide expanse of water between. Brightly lit river craft drifting by, signaling ono another by moaning whistles. "Now York!" Cella breathed tbo words softly. Tho ferry was moving now. "Ml;o to get oulsido nud lool: around?" Mitchell asked. Slio said tiiat slio woulil. Others in IIio co.ich were leaving to find places for themselves against tho boat's rail. Tho wind whippeil against the girl's cheeks and unconsciously siic braced herself. Mitchell named some of tbo more Impressive buildings r.s they passed. Celia barely heard his voice. Sho was lost In tho majesty ot the me- tropolis, its hugoucsa was challenging, mysterious, Bllrilng, T ATKll when they left tbo motor; * J conch for n taxlcnb nml wont whirling through crowded elreels .this spirit of ndvcuturo departed.
