And yet she really looks u happy. Perhaps she wouldn 't have-, been a real help to the Cause. Too sweet. Maybe she's soft and ser>• timental. Artists generally are. ;But I always thought Louise had | too much character to grow ; iv jTJT/HEN Louise found that she ; was going to have a child, a deep peace enfolded her. She was filled with a new strength, a new liie. The restlessness of her girlhood, the yearning for a richer, 'fuller life that had found some satisfaction in her painting, was now forgotten. She felt no fear, for a divine energy seemed to be supporting her. She trusted it to carry her through. And yet when she sat in her parlor, she avoided looking at the ,portrait of her mother that she had painted in those last weeks before her marriage. The eyes seemed to be saying, "Well, you see I was right." In spite of her happiness and •contentment, Louise hated to think that her mother had been altogether right. When she did look tat the portrait her conscience reproached her as though she were .betraying her own souL She began to avoid going into the parlor. S' could not think of art work now and did not want to be made to feel ashamed for her indifference. The unexpected appearance of Aunt Ella was a new test of lLouise's courage. Louise had gone .around to her mother's house for lunch. They were in the midst of 'It when Aunt Ella breezed in. "Well, Louise, what luck to find you here," Aunt Ella started in Ibruskly. *1 especially wanted to see you, because I want you to help in the new campaign' we're launching. I've just come on from Chicago to meet the rtsAJonal committee. It's time you gave some active service as the cause of Oh, I'm sorry, Air Ella. I'm mawkish over babies. WeU, I can't waste time on her." Aunt Ella rushed off to a committee meeting. It was a long time before Louise saw her again. Occasionally her name was in the paper in connection with the Woman Suffrage movement, * • « r THE sunlight streamed into the dining room. With a delightfully lazy feeling Louise poured out a second cup of coffee. It seemed so strange to oe there by herself with so much time on her hands and nobody to bother her.. It would certainly make a big difference to her to have both of her children at school. Eleanor had. not begun school until she was six, but the U by was starting at five. He had begged so hard to go. , Louise's smile was tremulous as she thought c sturdy little Ted, so manly and yet so affectionate. The house was painfully quiet without him. Louise sipped her coffee slowly, glad of this opportunity to relax and to think things over without being interrupted. It really seemed as if, from the time of Eleanor 's . birth seven years ago, she had never been alone, never known a . moment when she wasn't being called on for some service. Yet she was conscious of an intense satisfaction. "I certainly have nothing to reproach myself about — as far as the children are concerned," she thought. "Look at Josie Brown's baby, and Sadie's little girl! So pale and puny and miserable looking. They were horrified at the way I brought up my babies- giving them fresh air and exercise and fresh vegetables. Even Harry had his doubts and mother ' nted me to keep the children wrapped in flannel all winter! No. I've • nothing to regret i the way I brought up my babies." ' <X» Be OoB^iuaedl afraid 1 can't anything about iL You see, !'m—" Her voice sank to a whisper, ilthough there was no one else to hear. "Oh, Louise!" Aunt Ella was shocked and grieved. "You can't go bark on us like that. You have a profession. You can't degenerate into a common housewife." • • • "T OU1SE has always loved her home," said Mrs. Bentley coldly. She had no sympathy with her sister. Women became so unladylike when they argued bout woman suffrage. Furthermore, she was not flattered by the suggestion that she herself was a "common housewife." "Louise has brains," Aunt Ella flared out. "There ;ire plenty of silly little fools who can't do anything else but keep house. She's fit for something gre.-'.cr. What are you doing about your painting, Louise?" "Oh, I can't do anything about that now!" Louise cried, deeply distressed to have her aunt echoing all the sentiments she herself had expressed so often before her murriaue. "Later on, - "ter the baby growe up, I'll take it all up again. But right now I feel that I just want to live—just to be myself. I don't seem to want to be famous any more. It takes all my time and thought to be a good wife and mother." "Humph!" snorted Aunt Ella. "If anybody else but you said that, Louise, I'd call it bosh and twaddle." She let the matter drop, but through the rest of her hasty luncheon she eyed Louise keenly from time to time. "Maybe it's money," Aunt Ella thought. "How could she marry a man named Harry!
