MONDAY, MARCH 25, 1918. THE DAILY COURIER, CONNELLSVIT J.F., PA. PAGE SEVEN. CHAPTER III. , "The O'Ksllly." ' Age and ensy living had caused Don Mario "de Castano, the sugar merchant, to take on weight. Be had, in troth. become so fat that he waddled like n penguin when he walked; and when he rode, the springs of his French vic- toria gave up In despair. In disposition Don Mario was practical and unroinantlc; he boasted that he had never had an Illusion, never sn Interest outside of his business. And ·jst. on the day this story opens, this prosaic personage*. In spite of his bulging waistband, and his taut neckband, : ta spite of his short breath and his prickly heaf, was In a. very whirl of pleasurable eicitemcnt. Don Mario, In fact, suffered the greatest of all lllu- , slons: he was in love, and he believed hiraself beloved. The object of i-is adoration was little Rosa Tarona. Oie .daughter of his one-time friend Este- · ban/ To be sure, he lad met Kosa only twice since her return from her Yankee school,'but twice had-.been-enough; with prompt decision he had resolved to do her-tlie honor of making her Ms wife. % "H that were only soT exclaimed the woman. "She and Eateban--what children 1 What tempers--ijmt like their father's! They were to be their father's heirs, you know, and they blame me for bis death, for onr poverty, and for all the other misfortunes that have-overtaken ns. We live like cats and dogs." Don Mario had been drumming hlz ?at fingers impatiently upon tiie arm of Ills chair. Now he exclaimed: "Your pardon, senbra. bat I am just DOW very little Interested In jour domestic relations. Wtrat you say aboat Rosa only makes me more eager, for I loathe a sleepy woman. Now tfell me, la she-- Has she any--affairs of tii« heart?" "N-no, .unless perhaps a flirtation with that young American, Jaan O'Reilly." Donna Isabel gave the name ita Spanish pronunciation of "O'Bail- ffc" "Joan O'Reilly? OTlellly? Oh,.yes! But what has he to offer a woman? He la little mom than a clerk." "That Is what I tell her. Oh, it hasn't gone J'ar as yet." "Good!" Don Mario rose to leave, for the exertion of'his ride had made -- I every "fold of"hli'" flesh, "Mu'rlgardlsss reword for helping me and I wfll pay at the fan that the bodv of Ms victoria · u tte *»?

"Silly I Ste knows nothing about It." With .u flirtatious sigh Rosu added: Tha.'a what robs"the affair of Ita chief pleasure. Since it does not bother her In the least, I think I will not allow you to come any more." After judicious consideration, O'Boli- ly pretended to agree. 'There's no fun In wreaking a horrible · revenue; when- your enemy Isn't wise- to it," he acknowledged. "Since If s your Idea to irritate your stepmother, perhaps It would annoy her if I' made love directly to her." Rosa tittered, and then inquired, naively, "Can you moke love, senorT" "Can T? It's the. one ability an OTiellly Inherits.' Listen to this now." Reaching forth, he took Rosa's angers in hi*: "Walt I" be cried as she resisted. "Pretend, that you're Mrs. Vnrona, your own stepmother, and that this is her dimpled hand I'm holding." "Ob-h!" The girl atkrwed his grasp to remain. '"But Isabel's hand Isn't dimpled: It's thin and bony. I've felt It on my ears often .enough." "Don't interrupt," ho told her. ."Isabel, my little darling--" " 'Isabel 1 1" exclaimed a voice, and the lovers started guiltCy apart. They '.turned to find Estebmn, Rosa's twin brother, staring at them odflJy. "Isabel?" he repented. "What's this?" "You interrupted onr theatricals. I was rehearsing an impassioned pro- [ have. Anylinw, tlie president of my company has a notion that P3 make !iim a. good son-in-law." "I-- Oil I" crJed Rosa. And tvt bur tone pTluUly hurried nn: "These rich men have tho most ab- iurd ideas. I suppose I'll nave to--" "Then you are in love, seaor!" Tho young man nodded vigorously. 'Indeed I anv^vlth the swoctost girl a Cuba.

Sot daring to look too long »r too deeply into llosn ^arena's eyes until She hnfl taken in ihe Tvholo trutii, he waited, staring at 3is foet.

"Yea" : O'Reilly laughed with relief, and bough Rosa tried to look offended, ale was forced to smile.
