If you could only tell us who Vicky's grandfather was, I'd try to forget. To forgive. It's the not knowing that's \vorsl." - Sophie was rising slowly to her full majestic height. She moved instinctively to tlie center oC the group, with her back lo the hearth. "Mrs. Bagot/ 1 she ljogan r .in n very low voice, "I feel myself obliged to violate a sacred,,trust and'to fell you something—something I have'never told before— to. anyone. But for the sake of my granddaughter's happiness—" • There was a hypnotized pause while, she gathered her inner strength to throw herself into the pprt up to the hilt. Roll ing her eyes, head thrown back and nostrils disfen3ccl ( ; she got 'the story clear ii* her . own. : mind and pjunged.t- .„-. v; _ •"I feel it my duly to tell you, nnd although my lips have heretofore been sealed — although .1 thought I should carry,,my secrel to Ihe grave— Oselievc' thai in Iho circumstances, for the sake of lUe child, he would forgive me." /'Madame—-" breathed Mrs Bagot, leaning forward. "You ask me why I was never married to Vicky's grandfather Ah! He was not free to marry me You ask who he was—" She drcv a deep breath and intoned, "Then are names too august to be ban died aboutj even to save a younj girl's honor.. I shall not mciilioi his ''name even now." With bla?: : ing eyes she regarded first om and then another of her spell bound audience. There was tense pause. • "I shall simply ask you a ques lion, Mrs. Bagol," Sophie said dropping her voice to a whispc "What if I were to tell you that Victoria was named for her grandfather's mother?" Sophie's arms dropped to her .tics. She allowed her heart to csumc, gradually, its normal rc- lionship to her ncL'k and slioul- ers. As she watched for her cf- cci, she told herself she had not cd, she had not hurt anybody, nrt she might liavc sitvccl Vicky's ovc. It was just a chance. * * ' was staring at her with open mouth. Adnm looked as " he had been hit gently on the Tend with a blunt instrument. .Trs. Bagot, as she gradually [rasped Sophie's monstrous hint, ;aspecl r grew pale, and reached for he bottle of Madeira. Salty gave a long, low whistle. "Madame vnn F, y c k, 1 ' smcl \darn, "you are indeed one of the rcat women of your time." "Arc you all right, Mother?' iaHy uskcil anxiously. VYes, yes.

Oh— lo think I -forced tha •tmfessioii out of you,, when you lad endured humiliations " ant even insults in order to guard you secret! 1 am so ashamed," "Does Vicky know wlinl yen have just told us?" Sally asked. "She has no idea. She \vruil* be very much surprised," sail Sophie •truthfully. "She'll never hear il from me T promise you," Sally vowed. "V never let her know who her grand father really was." "I trust, Amelia," said Adai Bagol, "that this removes yoi objections to Salty 's marry in Victoria." "Oh — don't speak of il, Uncl Adam! 1C Madame van Eye doesn't mincJ . . , When 1 thin now who Victoria's mother wo what blood ran in her vein. 1 ; — " • "I didn't sny Victoria's mo tin as legitimate, Mrs. B a g o I," onhic said hastily. "Of course she was illcgili- iatc!" cried Mrs. Bagot, "She uildn'l very well have been ;my- ling else." "After all," Salty said, "we're road-mhided nowadays. And iC don't mind our marrying, Quinine van Kyck, I really think would look very silly for us to bject." Sophie smiled, although her fa- ial muscles ached and she was lore than ever aware of a great •earincss, "She's nt the Plaxa, ally, 1 ' she said, "In my suite, 'on may use il for the honey- loon."

"I'm here," he announced, as if ic had been expected. Vicky's heart turned over. "f haven't slept since 1 last' saw F OII," lie said accusingly. "Let's ;o upstairs where we can talk." When they were up in Madame •an Kyc'k's silting room, the first injj Sally did was lo repeat m in injured lone of voice that lib nul been unable to eat or sleep. -Vicky thought he had followed icr to Neiv York simply to open up aifain the sumc line of futile irgument, "Then the sooner you 'orgot all about me,Hhe belter for your health," 'she said. "K you would marry me tomorrow, I wouldn't have to forget vou. Oh, Vicky, will you?" "Uul, Sally, I thought—that is, you and your mother understand how it is. Have you forgiven'—?" lie looked at her with a mixture of humility and possessive pride. "Don't ever speak of it again! If you think I am worthy of you—there's nothing to forgive, nothing lo forget."
