PROGRESS-REVIEW. LAPOHTE CIT\, IOWA. ^ Fourth Lovely Lady -By- THERESE BENSON · The B^tu-Uerrlll Co ·VTNU Service CHAPTER 1 --l-- Tbe wedding was over, [n the litter of confetti that concealed the pat. ttrn of the rug on tlie tloor the foyer bore silent witness to the tnct that the bride and groom had departed. The catering had been l a v i s h ; the wine. In days of supposed drought, veritable; and the apartment, among [he most b e a u t i f u l and spacious in New York. entirely suitable for B function th.ll hod ui.iied an American f a m i l y of distinction ivith the English nubility At lust most of the guests had pone or were reluctantly m a k i n g ready :o which clrminitanres the dn . that SO. : three elder Lovely sisters (ili they were free to I n d u l g e their desire for p r U n l e conversation w i t h o u t civ Ins tne ImpressJoo of a f a m i l v council "Cyril had to rush off to n p a t i e n t Just afier Ihe ceremony," Luc\ said. "\Vlmi (lid you t h i n k of ll. Lnurn:" "It was a b e a u t i f u l wedding. I don'l believe 1 could have improved on It,' Laura conceded craclously. "It will cost poor Bill-Lee n foriuup. Ridiculously estravn^nnl. I call it." Luc.i 1 wont on. Louise nodded briskly. "Tlie Seotch blood ID the Lovely ancestry It- cnmlns: our in you, Lucy. Why should you worry? It Isn't Jioln£ to cost you any thin;;. After oil. It would iinve been deplorable If this had been n shabby function. As nn international affair nothing else bns been talked of for the past month. This marriage, and Smire stape management of It, won't tnke a penny out of your purse nnd certainly reflects preat credit on the family." "How Smlf baa done It on what she bis a your Is more tlmn I can understand." Lucy hinted. "The ftrj last letter I hnd from Bill-Lee said business in South America had gone to pnt." slio went on; "every year he had hoped he would make a klllins and be jible lo send Smlf sameLhinc: but this year There waa Just no UFe fclddlns himself--there wasn't a Chlnamnn's chance of IL" "Bill-Lee's way of expressing himself--" Laura began, only to ho Interrupted by Louise, struck by more than the wording of what was plainly a quotation from their brother: "Ynu can't mean he never has sent her anything? Why, Cintra 1 ;- education alone--and this wedding! You're rich l. Lucy. It must have cosi a fortune." "Oh. not so much perhaps," Laura tut In. characteristically unwilling to borrow trouble, "nfter all, Susan Phelps helped substantially when she lent Smif this apartment. I think It was awfully decent of Subao." Lucy sniffed. "Susan wasn't entirely disinterested. It wns one way to make sure that hor prccjons Pamela would be invited lo be a bridesmaid. She never offered any cf us such a chance. If Cintra hnd been marrying a plain, everyday American I doubt if SUSQD would have been so generous." "Perhaps she's fonder of Smlf than she is of us--" 'There's no need of speculating on that." Laura Interrupted Ixnilse. "she let Fmif use IL FIndn't we better po? We'll be the last, If we nren't careful/' "That's all right," Laura reassured her. ''we're the family. I mean to stay u n t i l I've seen Rmif. I've nerer dared to ask her, nnd I'm wondering w h a t she'll do with herself nnw thnl she's lost Cintra." "I'onr old Smif. It really Is a trne- edj w h e n you come to t h i n k of her side or the affair. Sou can't deny t h a t She hns given up her whole llfu to that child. I've said It before and I say It Dsain, Bill-Lee had no right to saddle her w i t h his offspring, young ns she was then." Louise looked nt Lucy challenging!? and Lucy took up the challenge. "Louise always talks as If f h e were the only one who cares for Smif. I adore her and so do you, Laura. She's the most COD si derate, the mosi goner- aos person 1 know. Bat neither of as Is blind to the unfortunate facts. I shall always Insist that Blll-Lw saved hor face by providing her wllh on occupation In life when his wife died." "Smlf'a going to be awfully lonely." Laura expertly managed to give the effect of agreeing with both of her Bisters. "Oh, dear, she was the best- looting of any of as when she was a baby. Why did she have to turn out like this? It mnkoa you feel too conspicuous for words to take her around with you. You all know what I mean. 1 don't mind If people stare at me because I'm specially well dressed or looking better than usual They stare nt Smlf us if they believed she must have escaped from a sideshow. Yet can't you remember how proud poor Dad'l? was, showing us off to his friends? The lovely ladles.' he'd say na If proposing a toast, 'my four queens. Then he'd snatch Smlf up find set her on his shoulder. 'And this one's the trump. Isn't she?" he'd ask; and every one would fierce with him." "Smire complexion's One and fine hns nice eyes with curly lashes," Louise he can, "No one denies, my dear, (hat she would be passable If she'd lose a too or two," Lucy snapped. "Talking about me." B rich, almost unctuous voice declared with no uncertainty and the utmost Indifference. "Well, what do you suggest that I should do about itV The response was prompt. "Hollywood diet I" from Lnnrn, "Cyrtt would prescribe thyroid extract, salt free diet and flre meals a day--If you can call them meals," Lacy contributed. The chords was eager and earnest, and Smlf laughed "Forget It, girls. If anything wonld make a sylph of me sorely this wedding would have. How did yon like It?" "Perfect I" the sisters agreed In chorus, but Lucy had to add: "Regardless of expense, wasn't It?" "Practically." Smlf confessed. "It Isn't cwry day the Lovely family «c- quires it belted earl It seemed suitable to celebrate the capture. Moreover, his earldom's a good fellow. What he saw lu Cintra's beyond me. 'She haso't the brains of a mosquito ' I told him." "Ton didn't'." Lucy cried Incredulously. "I did. Why not? I always play fair. I said those very words--and be said: 'Good. ] don't like bnlny women. What I wani to know--Is she sound and kind 1 ! Warranted steady In double harness! Xo kicking over the traces or l u m p i n g gates lookii; for better pasture? 1 '.No.' I said, 'she'd no! have Imagination enough to t h i n k of such a thine.' 'Gnod again,' sold he. "my last fancy wrole novels. I'm off Imaglnn- tlon for life, [low's her temper: said he. 'Sweet as apple-blossoms, said I, ·and Jusi a b o u t as s t i m u l a t i n g - 'She'll he _ . w , 1( , n , , M H , e m e n , 1 can no to I n r h a after I1; giime. 1 no longer pine for temperament In the home.' 'Please rion'l t? In a h u r r y about this. You're n l,il voi:ri2 n, scitlc 10 Chun's pate.'

'I soo vou nro. my lad,' I agreed. 'So t:\ko hct--with my sympathy. 1 " Lucy regr-.rded her youngest sifter with extreme disapproval but mM"d h o p e f u l l y : " N a t u r a l l y ho d i d n ' t think you were In earnest." "You f a n c i not?" SmlC looked bad; at her owlishly. "Al any rale It was n pretty wedding." she ended, bringim: the conversation sharply back to where II hnd started. "Claire Gooc]huo said It was nbso lutely the most c h a r m i n g w e d d i n g she had ever seen, and she meant It. For my own part. Smlf d a r l i n g I don't see how you did I t on your Inrome." This suggestion, surprisingly e n o u g h , came from Lnura. It was more In Lucy's line. A distinct pause followed. "But of course I didn't," S:ni( returned nonchalantly. Before nor audience had Crisped tlie significance of tliis, a worried looking little man h u r r i e d tov.-nri] the group. "Sly tloar Smlf, S u s a n Una decided to run up to the M a n o r for the rest of the week. I'am hns I m i i c d the whole bridal party. All those English people, you know. To the M a n o r fnr over Sunday. Pam wants them. Do you care lo go?" '"Goodness, no. Charles!

I'm ready to risk a guess thai ste'll continue ic manage her affair* it* tier own way, ttd 1, for one, am cuotent to let ber:" "I'm sure no one waots 10 Interfere If she Isn't In a hole financially." Laura baznrdod. ea^er as always to sidestep trouble. "We were only afraid from whai she said thai she might need money--and where it was [o come from In the present Cnaucial deprea slou--" "Enactly," said Lucy vaguely. "She's not the only person who's bard up. With four children thai becomes a chronic condition. And this Is so unexpected. Louise, [f we hfld ever had to help her before It would be differ- enL We woulJ have saved up for IL whereas now we are utterly unprepared." Louise had never liked her elder sisters less.

W l t l i a nod to her sisters and n casual "I'll be back." Smlf v.ent off with Charles Pliclps. "Now, what do you make of Ihal?' 1 Louise bent her brows as she stared after the mismatched pair: Charles Phelps, so drleu-up and nnxlous-look- Ing, for nil the millions thai ehoultl have lifted every care from his shoulders; Smif. so miissUe. so capable, so protective In pose. Laura shrugged her shoulders. "Preparation for n campaign In London this spring. A good move on Susan's part." "That Isn't what I mean. W h a l do I care for the Phclpses uad their social campaigns? It's Smlf I'm thinking of. Don't you sec bow pathetic she Is? Actually doing her bcsl to scare Leister off In the hope tlial she wouldn't have to part with Ciutra." "Nonsense!" Locy presented her view In answer to Louise. ".Srnlf was very clever there. Leister can ucrer soy Clntrn'B Tamils Jmniicd rtnwn bis throat. And Smlf knew that nil Englishmen ore bnllhcaded; oppose tlietn and they're twice as bent on gcttine their wny. Wliat I'm worrying aljou: la the money question.

"Jim Is nn angel about money matters." "Smlf wasn't hinting." Louise faced the other two Indignantly. "You ougijt to know her belter than that. Ned always snys she's 'damnably Independent.' Uoncstly, I'm worried about her. Left alone like this--" "What she ongbt lo do," Lucy Interrupted briskly, "Is lo buy n small pln= c In the country. She could raise chickens. or dogs." ·And we could send the children to her for the summer holidays," Louise submitted the suggestion drjly. "Just like Blll-Lcc. Dump cor responsibilities on her shoulders. Sou mnke me positively savage. Why don't yon apply for admission for her to a Dome for Indigent Splostera? Srall hasn't asked yon for anything. Ion don't even know (hot 6DC needs help. When Bhe does will be time enough for yon to decide for ber what ebe had better do. She succeeded In educating Cintra, brought her out and married her --lint I must h u r r y . That's I'nrn call Ing mi-." "Nut without t e l l i n g us w h a t you're going I'l do!" Louise implored her. "I dnii't mind telling you." said E m i t , "only I'm rather a f r a i d you won't like It wbon you hear It. I'm going lo be an adventuress." She passed out I n t o the fuyijr and a moment later the clang of tr"* e!e varor door as It closed behind her told them that she was really gone. CHAPTER II At glance the history of the l.ovelys, of Lovclylea, Vn., presented little of Interest to the lingering new^ monger or novelist. They were nni the legendary penniless patricians, lm- molaled on the altar of their pride by Ihc Civil war. On Ihe contrary, the war t h a t pauperized many of their neighbors brought developments which liad made U'C Lovqljs of that day rn|. garly rich for Ihelr time.

All the children were handwme bul the youngest, named Matilda Smith, after her mother's mother, was 0 picture. Before she conld walk, her mother being dead, her father carried her In front of him on his saddle, exhibiting her to friends and relations. His pet name for her was "Loveliness." a name which as Boon as she could talk sbfi repudiated with scorn. "Name Is Smlf. Smlf. Smlf I" she would shout. And be accepted, as did every one else, tbe name of Smlf for nia rouD^osi norn. She was the Da by, the pei of the older children and of the whole f a m i l y connect loo. Sroll was quite a tl£ girl before she learned to speak plainly. Uy that lliue ll would nave required a rlolenl effort to 'ireak the hnbli of calllns her Sralf. and no Lo\cly was Riven 10 effort except In the search for amusement.
