Evelyn *• Parsons stood with her face half averted from Mitchell. In the white moonlight sho seemed like a goddess—unearthly and unattainable. Not by the slightest movement did Evelyn betray her quickening pulse. 'Mitchell hesitated as though shocked at his own daring. - Slowly she turned lir-r head, raising her eyes to meet his. This was 116 goddess! Evelyn's gaze held tenderness, warmth and the sag- seit.ton of veiled mystery. "i wonder." she said softly, "If 1 do know, John?" "Oh, Evelyn— you're so beautiful!" The man's voice was choking with cnmtion. Mrs. P.-irsons did not' smile. Had .she overplayed that moment of delay? Surely not. In another inslanl John Mitchell v.-as going to ask her to be his wife. He took-both her hands la'.his. Mitchell's eyes v.-ere earnest, aui- lous. "•Von must have known how 1 feel about you," he said. "You've been 'so helpful, so understanding Evelyn, you're wonderful. You're the. one woman—" ... . • The sentence was ncver:f!n!sher). Someone,was coming through the living room and at-the sound of ..footsteps both Mitcbell 1 and Mrs. usually t.lent, Mitchell, looking embarrassed, listened to Cell* and now aud then made obrioui at- euipts at conrersatlcn. Presently Evelyn I'arsons «x- cused herself and went Into the house. Not for another moment could sbo contain her anger. Evalyn mounted tho stairs, hurried to licr room aud closed the door be- htricl her, Sho stood leaning against It, hands clenched and her body quivering. Evelyn's eyes were closed, her mouth a cruel, sliver of crimson. "Oh!" Bbe gasped, "Oh—!" Suddenly the woman was a tornado of energy, She picked up a book, Ilia first 'object to touch her hand, nnd hurled It across the room. Papers, inagaiiues, a clgarct case was next. nRADUALLY sho became quieter. ^ Blind anger gave way to an expression of grim deliberation. Evelyn's eyes narrowed. Nothing had been lost and on the whole she might gain from tlie situation. Temporary obstacles often creased a man's ardor. Hadn't she played that gamo frequently? She moved to her dressing table and began working with coBmetl as she framed a course of action, n a few moments traces of the cmpcstuous outburst had been re- novtd. A subtle touch of eye- shadow made her eyes more bril- lant and gave them a bint of vvlstfulness. She .drew fresh lips with a stick of carniine, dusted her ace and shoulders witb fragrani :owder.

"A man's a fool to tie himself own In a city all his. life!" Jghn Iltcbell said this as though he cro arguing with himself. Ho alanced his glass absent inlndedly ud the fragile crystal was In lui- ruln«ut peril. H$ remembered Juat a time. I don't think you ought to stay n town during this hot weather," la said firmly. "Oh—utterly Impossible to gel . "Oh,' hero you ' are!" Celia Mitchell stood In the open French window, the light (roin the. room beyond throwing her slim figure into silhouette. "It's too perfect to be indoors, isn't it?" Mis. Parsons, after the first startled glance at the girl, was ua New Orleans Cotton The action soothed Evelyn as nothing else could hare done. She would make Mitchell ask iier to marry him tomorrow. Oh yes, she could do that! It had ieen exasperating to havo the goa within reach aud then rudely snatched away, but there would be no cuch slip tomorrow. Hack In Evelyn Parsons' mlm was the thought that Celia woult pay for this interference. Anyoni who Interfered with tha widow'! clans was rjutte likely to pay. She was singing softly, the refrain of an English ballad as che returned to the porch. "It was song Evelyn had heard Miichel say he was fond of. "Hilda's bringing something coo to drink." she said. "I thought I would be refreshing." "Isn't Evelyn .the perfect hos 1 ess, father?" Cella said. "You're .

She gava Mitchell a luick glance, theu her eyes turned away. For nearly an hour the three sat enjoying the breeze and the fun- asllo pattern of light nnd shadows woven on the moonlit lawu. Then illtcbell said it was time for him o go. Ho was spending Ilia night it the country club and promised o rejoin them ucxt day after bis morning round of golf. * • • LTE departed. Cella paused long •*• enough In. the upstairs halhvny icfore going to her rooru to say to Mrs. Pai-sons: "You looked perfectly beautiful gf lilin? It sort of 1 can't help but wor- :onlght, Evelyn! I thought at first you'd done your hair a different way, hut It isn't that. I guesi It's ust bccauEO you really are beautiful!" ' : "Silly child. Tell uie about the picnic." "It was fun. Listen, fivelyn, do you think you'll be able to talk to father tomorrow about Tod? I mean about getting him to. change his opinion bothers me. ry— " Sheer Inspiration prompted Evelyn Parsons. An eager light came into her eyes. "I'll do wliat 1 can, Celln," she said. "And I'm" sure I can't fall. Let's sec— Ihe thing 'Is to manage ibis the right way." ' ' • She studied silently a moment. "I know!" slio continued, "we'll pretend you have an errand tomorrow afternoon after luncheon. You can take tho car and stay away a long time— two hours at .least! That will give me tho 'chance to have the sort of talk with your father where I can lead up to tbe subject. Don't you see? First I'll talk about how popular you nre at tho club and how everyone like* you. That will bo sure to start him oh 'his plans for your future: From that it will be no trick at all for me to mention Tod and what a splendid young man be Is.' "Ob, Evelyn!" ' The girl was delighted.
