When he knew Artie had gone Fitz- Iragh walked over to say goodby. But as he drew 'near she rose hurriedly and hastened toward the curtains at the rear of the box, leaving him. with her mother, who, with her lorgnette- to" her ejes, was placidly and studiously ignoring him. Kathleen vaialshed into the corridor,, and, turning, drew the curtains together so ^ that her face and neck and shoulders |. do love were framed In the aperture. And for ' ••long moment; her soft pansy eyes «azed into his leaping black ones. And-the smile on her lips was heavenly. And the light in her eyes, afraid yet - glad, spoke with an* eloquent tongue. . • Then the curtains fell together, and Be was alone with Mrs. Otis. some wild" thing of Mozart's; "Kathleen! Kathleen!" She was overpowerlngly conscious of Ills nearness. The flesh of .his hand seemed to burn Into hers. ' Every nerve IP her body throbbed to its pressure. All the restraint of years of breeding and tradition, which thus far had held her back, were now snap-, ping' asunder; and she felt herself be 1 ing swept on toward that which she feared .yet ponged • to "attain. She could no longer'resist 'Stye gave .herself utterly to the half-frightened de- llclousness of surrender. "Ah . . . .1 love you. ...

The following October Fltzhugh bought a seat on the Board of Trade. His Golden Goddess, Luck, ever teamed upon him, and this, no less than his breadth of grasp on the market, i and all Its wealth of tentacles, swelled his fortune with tremendous booms. His speculations In May and July wheat- had alone netted him two Jinndred thousand dollars. Winter •wheat had ^Increased his capital by . two more similar notches. It was now well past seven hundred thousand dollars. and was rushing on toward the million mark. All this within four years! Yet whenever he caught himself being »wed by the magic he had wrought -he would quell his rising ego by severe •elf-admonition: "Don't get too confident. Remember It's all gambling. Once your luck changes it will go as last as it came — maybe faster. You're liable to lose the whole pile In one swoop." • Esther and the thought of her gave him bad moments.. Directly she left the hospital she had come again to . him, and he had been forced to the ignominy of lying to placate her. This angered him. Soon afterward she had gone to Paterson, N. J., where from time to time he heard from her. He tried repeatedly to give her money, but always unsuccessfully. She repulsed every effort he made. Her un. spoken reproach, her silent refusal I of his checks, for she returned them | without a word, worried him more than anything else she could have flone. What Fitzhugh could not understand was Otis' unrelenting bitterness. He I never planned a" venture, never made -j .a move, but- some hidden hand was | against it.' He was not slow to dis- I <over. whose hand it was. Nor was he long in discerning that its owner had nothing save enmity for him. Since E-athleen's return from abroad he had •taken eager advantage of every opportunity to be with her. And here, l<fO, he had encountered that same opposing force. At first he never suspected Otis.' He had' thought Otis a man- who disdained society as a fri- rollty only- for women to aflrase themselves with. He was soon to learn, however, la often those who Jeer the loudest at smart society who : gecretly revere It most: Hypocritically * snob; the'-flinty 'old capitalist' was" as well versed In all those little tricks and artifices and petty subterfuges of •odally disparaging a person as the moat sophisticated dowager. Fltzhugli's perplexity became a torment, One evening (it was at a - charity ball) he reminded Kathleen' of the "La Boheme" evening one year before, . ' ' • "I shouldn't. bring it up," he ended, "only this is our 'anniversary,' and anniversaries are always the time for recalling things." She lowered her eyes to the cluster of violets on her corsage. They were "his violets. He had long ago learned her passion for the flower and seldom the day passed but he showered her •with them. "You do care a little? Don't you — Kathleen?" ,"I — you know I like you." .' He said tensely: "I don't want you to like me." • "I'm sorry." , "I want you to love me. You know 1 love you. Can't you — don't you love me, Kathleen?" The violin sobbed with its delicious 'melody. She began toying with the , violets. Her fingers were unsteady. The violets fell to the floor. ] "Don't you?" he insisted, as he re- j covered and returned them. "Don't I what?" — pinning the flowers to her corsage. "Love ine."

They were snugly ensconced behind the shielding palm. The violinist was in a poetic frenzy. The attention of all was held by him. -Nobody saw them. The shadows of the March afternoon were thickening, and the room was in semi-darkness. After a while he spoke, very softly. "So we' are engaged." be said, and -i In spite of him his voice trembled. i "Yes," she murmured, unclosing her eyes: Still leaning against him, she asked wistfully: "And are you very, .very happy?" He' held her close. - "1 never dreamed," said he. "that any man could be so divinely happy, least of all myself." Presently she sat up, with a start, and removed his encircling arm. "You must remoinber," •• she said hastily, "It Is only between ourselves. We mustn't announce'it yet." He detected a strange note • In her voice. "I understand," he answered quietly. "You see. If I promise to marry you—" " 'If,' you promise?" "I mean when we announce our engagement. I shall have to oppose father and mother. I've never breathed a word to them, you know. When I found you had said nothing to mother that night I—I thought it best, all round, to wait a little while. So I've never spoken. But now ... I shall have- to fight for you. I shall have to defend you. ,.You must help me all you can. and always remember if I seem severe or exacting it Is because I care for you so. 1 ' "Once," he mused, looking down at hrr with the unutterable joy of possession, "you spoke rather strongly of my egotism, I think, sometimes, I have a right to be egotistical." "Indeed, you have!" she exclaimed, purposely • misunderstanding him. "Your success Is the most wonderful thing in the world." "I didn't mean exactly that," ha smiled. "But go on: t'ell me I've accomplished wonders." The luxuriant-haired Pole was soar- Ing toward'his finale. In a tew minutes they might be discovered. She spoke rapidly. "You 'can accomplish more wonders"—looking eagerly at him. "I even believe you can make father like you. Once you have shown him you can be a master of finance it is possible his feeling toward you will change.

Berlin, Jan. 20.—Germany again set the pace in progressive labor legislation when the national assembly, at the end of a special sesion, legally anchored the right of labor to have a voice and vote in the management and supervision ot. factories, workshops', department' stores and enterprises of every description including farms. This right is laid down iff a special law which passed the assenz- bly by a vote of 213 to, 64. The shops councils bill, otherwise known as the "exploitation law," one of the most radical pieces of economic legislation since .the. war, was passed after five days' acrimonious debate. The measure affects all. 1 ' places where more than five men or- women are employed, excepting newspapers, in which business the councils are" not "permitted to dictate.

MARTENS SOLDIER OF KAISER Russ; Soviet-"Ambassador" to the U. S. Admits Serving in German Army. Washington. Jan: 20.—After 'Lud- wlg C. A. -Martens, llussian soviet "ambassador" to the United States, had given a brief personal history,of himself and his life in Russia, .the senate, committee investigating bol- sheyist propaganda In the United States adjourned suddenly because its members had other pressing engagements. Martens stated he was born in Russia of German parents and was educated In Russian schools as a mechanical engineer, but never practiced his profession, ns he was arrested for agitation against "the government .of the czar" and deported to Germany: There he was put in the army and spent two years in it. Pe lived, in England ten years, came to the United States in 1916 .and went to work as a purchasing agent for a Russ'ian steel company. • - to the bottom of .all .the charges madej by the admiral, "and his -motives In- attacking the naval administration, of which in time of war the president is the actual,and active head," Secretary- Dnniels let it be known. . ' Chairman Hale said the committee would nat complete its investigation of naval^ decorations in less than ten days and that the inquiry into Admiral Sims' charges would not be undertaken until'the committee had made its report' uji the matter now under consideration. '"• . Daniels Would Open Inquiry. Unless tbe senate investigation of Ectir Admiral Sims' charges of failure of the navy department to co-operate fully with the allies during the war is made to the 'entire satisfaction o£ the American people, an inquiry will be made, by a naval board, Secretary Daniels announced. He added that "no organization in the history of the world ever did .a better job than the American navy." While refusing to discuss Admiral Sims' letter of .criticism of the department, Mr. Daniels indicated the admiral frequently 'clashed with the department through his insistence tlvat more destroyers be withdrawn from troop convoys to augment the antisubmarine forces in European waters. "The paramount duty of the American navy," .Mr. Daniels declared, "was to protect the passage of American troops to Europe and the safeguarding of merchant shipping; vital as that was recognized to be, necessarily was secondary." Secretary Daniels emphasized that, contrary to the popular impression, Admiral Sims throughout tbe war was subordinate to Admiral Mayo, commander in chief of the -Atlantic fleet. He indicated that on the question of the distribution of 'destroyer strength" as well as on other questions ATlmiral Sims was overruled by Admiro* Mayo I:K well as the department. "Every naval order, every document bearing on the navy's war activities," Mr. Daniels continued, "is open- to the light of (lay, and the more thoroughly the entire record is laid before the- people of this country the greater the pride they can have in the achieve- menf of their navy. The country will be entirely reassured when: matters are brought to a show-down."-..'Sims' Duties Not Afloat. Secretary Daniels .said that in the first summer of the' war, Admiral Sims was given the title.of commander of .thje United'States naval forces'in European waters', s but. that as n'matter of fact "his duties were not affoat.". "The business of Rear Admiral Sims was to .obey,orders,"_dectojred,.the..sec-, retary. "His duties rarc%o make red- create strength. Yf 'r money back if K fails. Claude Fox and Druggists everywhere.
