"May •n old man ask an old lady the question a boy ought to have asked a girl a lifetime ;igo?" "Oh—Adam!" "Sophie, will you marry me?" Moved to tears, she gripped one «rf- his hands in both hors. "How Hke you that is!" she cried. "To wish to mnko on honest womnn ol me! But I shall give you the answer .the girl ought to have given the boy.»No> ; Adam—but I thank you from the bottom ol my heart." He leaned back, an expression of ineffable peace on his iiobie carved features.; ''You will never know the peace it has brought me to have asked y^u thai question at last." "If I had only dreamed you were 'suffering such remorse!" she murmured. "What ran 1 ever do lo viakc it up to yo"u? w rLct me bis Vour friend for the few years remaining to us." . "But of course!" She was struck with the perfect solution. "Adam—" she snid, leaning toward nirn earnestly, "won't you conic .to New York with us for the win• ter? They will give you a corner room at the hotel. You can be quite comfortable." . "Thank you very much," he said simply. "I should love to .come.

Bopliie saw « restless girl, imprisoned by the round of farm life and the billcr Maine winters. She saw again the elegant young Adam Bagot •who came to arrange the purchase of her father's farm, on the back reaches of the tidal Goose River for the Codman Company. Generous to a fault even then Sophie had given her whole hcarl jand her whole self, although she A'as dimly aware that Adam bc- onged (o another world. When she had realized the position in which she found herself, and when her "athcr's death lett her alone in the world, she had taken the money rrom the land sale and gone. What a long, long journey she :iad taken to come back at hist, wealthy and famous, and find Adnm Bagot waiting in the place 'ic had never left! » » • J-TER musings were interrupted by the sound of Marcel and Sir Charles on the staircase, bring- ng down the easel rend some suitcases. She wondered what on earth they were doing, making all that commotion. Presently Mnr- cct came into the room, muffled his shawl and wearing the shabby, greenish Hussion capo. "Sophie," he said sadly, "I go only because you think U is for the best." "Good heavens!" she exclaimed. "Hasn't anyone told you? You can't go now. We'r6 all expected at Mrs. Bagot's for dinner tomorrow night. To celebrate the engagement!" "What?" "Engagement?" said Sir Charles, coming in. ".Who expects to be married?" "Sally and Vicky, of course," saict Adam BagoC. "Go and toll the rest of the boys, Sir Charles," Sophie ordered "Tell Basil and fetch Godfrey." "You mean %vc don't have to go away?" asked Marcel. "Certainly not." "But I packed, Sophie, I rcallj packed." "And I have wonderful news for everyone," she went on happily "Adam is joining us!" Marcel stood unbelieving. 11 advanced slowly upon Adam, who had risen cfturtcousry. "You are joining us?" Adnm inclined his head. "Wherl Madame moves lo New York for he winter, 1 expect to accompany or." Miircel turned to Sophie. "Is Til very well that Sophie be nice o Vicky's in-laws," he said jcal- 'usly, "but we need not go so nr as Ihnt! Basil and I, and even odfrcy, are all old friends o[ 'Ophic—-" "But, M .1 r c e 1," interrupted Sophie, "Adam is the oldest friend Jf nil." Slie moved across to stand Between the two men, giving a land to each. "Yon have not changed, Sophie," id Adnm, "since you were a girl, and in spite of fame nnd fortune." * • * 2IR CHARLES and Basil came in from the hall. "Alas, but I have changed!" lophie said, "As Harry o( Eni;and said to Kale in Ihc fifth act: My comfort is that old age, that 11 layer-up of beauty, can do 110 nore spoil upon my face—' " She was interrupted by God- • rcy, coming to see what the ex- cilcment was all about. He stood n the doorway and surveyed the scene. "Sophie!" lie warned. "Those arc my lines!" He took :hcm away from her, continuing :he speech, " 'Thou hast me, it [liou hast me, at the worst; and Ihou shall wear me, if thou wear me, belter and belter—' " lie began pacing up nnd down in the cenler of the room, finishing the speech, but the others paid no attention to him. Marcel and Adam sat down one on each side of Sophie on the couch. Sir Charles started lo set up a table for (ca. Basil moved to the piano, which was now quite badly out of tune alter a summer on Ihe sciicoasl. Sealing himself on the bench, he began to play softly the finalo from Mozart's Sonata in C. Godfrey was slill going on and on, working himself into his part. Adam Bagot, silting close lo Sophie, nettled back comforlnbly, smiling with an expression of fulfillment, and reached out a hand.
