Gravely Paul, unnoticed by the two ladies,- winked at Patience. "How do yon do?" "How do you do?" "Let's go into the garden," said •Miss Helen. Tea was served on the best Slaflorcisliire tea service. Certainly, thought I'atiencc, her aunts were out to impress Paul favorably. But where on earth had they met him? Still, it was enough that he-was here. And that when he looked at her his eyes told her that de- spile all that had passed lie vas still in love with her. Just as hers were most likely telling him that she too was in love with him. Only how was he going to [eel towards her when she told him about Roger—about Paris? After lea. Aunt Helen suggested that Paul and she might care to take a stroll around the gardei togelhcr. "Or perhaps you'd like to show Mr. Taylor lhat very pleasant walk through the woods?" Patience looked at Paul. "Shall 1?" "Why, yes, I'd love it." Patience smiled at her aunts. "\Ve won't be very long." "That's all right, dear child." Paul said as '.hey sol off: "Jus the moment were out o( sigh 'm going to kiss you." Patience's heart leaped. "Oh, Paul!" "I am, darling.

"Yes, that's a point." * » • •'J1AUL, how did you gel here? I simply couldn'i believe it. 1 nought I must be dreaming when 1 heard your voice in the hall." Paul grinned. "History, my sweet, repeated itself." Patience slopped short. "How do you mean?" "Your estimable aunts picked me up on the train!" "Paul, they didn't!" "Indeed they did. And they were much quicker about it than ever you were." Patience swallowed hard: "That must have been Ihen last Monday evening." "That's right. Last Monday as ever.was. 1 came upon them both hurrying (or the 6:3(1 and helped them with their suitcases. We all three went down together." They were almost out of sigh' of the ga:den now. Paul helper her over a stile. A tree hid them completely from Miss Helen ant Miss Alice, who were still sitting pha-itliy where they had left them Paul put his arms around Pa tience, but she struggled- [ree o them. "Paul, I've got lo talk to you. 1 Paul looked down at her. "Must you? Couldn't I kiss yoi firsl, and then we'll talk after 1 ,' "No. You see, after I've loll you what I'm going to tell you you may not want lo k'iss me."

We—we lad <niile a lot of fun together over there." "Fun?" His eyes searched her ace. "No, It's all right. Don't tell ne," he said quickly. But she knew that she'd got to. She'd not be happy in her mind "lie kissed me," she faltered. She waited. Her heart shook. And then miraculously his arms were tight about her, and it seemed he had forgiven her, because he was kissing her and telling her he loved her. That indeed, as she must surely know, right from the very first moment he'd seen her he loved her. And lhat this time, he wns going to make very sure that she married him. Back in the garden. Miss Helen and Miss Alice were chatting happily together. "I think he's a very delightful young man," said Miss Alice. "He's got such charming manners." "I know. I must confess I like him very much indeed, lie seems loo so' entirely suitable." ' IMiss Alice drew a little wistful sigh. "I wonder what Patience and he are doing now." Miss Helen looked at her. "Doing, Alice? Whatever do you mean?" _ "Well, dear—a young man and a young girl—he might—well, he might possibly be holding her hand."
