H« asks Shirley Dane, beautiful, young, society girl to marry him. She refuses, being secretly engaged to Roger Keltoa, young lawyer, in whose car* t/he has placed her inheritance. Unknown to Shirley, Alan lends Roger half a million dollars to savo him irotn bankruptcy, after he learns that Roger ia the man Shirley luves. Alan takes as collateral wortliless shares in a Macedonia development which Roger agrees to investigate. After Roger and Shirley are married. Roger tells her Alan is a client of his and, thoreforc, he cannot refuse to go to Macedonia. (NOW GO ON WITH THE STORY.) CHAPTER XIII. faelf sound.

"But wallpaper tells everybody who comes here that we can't afford paneling. And that would cost us a great deal more than a thousand dollars." "This policy of yours, you know --ray father had it to a point and I'm not altogether sure that he made a success of it." "He hadn't the nded to study tt might or might not believe in the solidity of the house tnd the cars, the holiday at Southampton, the careless anjoywent oi everything, but they pretended to believe. They whispered to Roger as they did to each other and the immediate result was fifti-en nundred for an outlay of less than five. To be with the rig 1 !', people at the right time. It h'ld been her fathers creed. It had become hers. It was not, of com so, Alan's. It was B very good thing she had refused Alan.

Don't you remember what you said about Southampton costing a lot? It didn't coat us 600 dollars, and how much did you make over taking Gorston s advice?" "Nearly fifteen hundred In nine days," he answered proudly. "Cynaz appointed you to three companies," she went on. "If we hadn't spent ihat money on Long Island none of that would have happened. So what about leaving the domestic arrangements m my bands, Roger?" He looked at her, doubt in his eyes. She saw the doubt dissolve and give place to consciousness of her morning-f;own. Keeping his eyes upon hei, he flung his cigarette into tre prate. "Have it your own way, sweetheart," he lixclaimed. He strode towards her. His hand played over the lace.t at her throat. "I suppose I'm a sort of idiot sometimes, but I'vp only to talk to you :\nd I'm ready to tilt at mountains. Givo me B kiss before I go to the office -- no, no, no, don't run away -- you shall, you darling, you shall." She had bf en kissed. He had left her in the utmost good humor, not knowing that she had not wanted to bu kissed. Now she camo to think of it he never noticed whethei she wanted to be kissed. Perhapa it made no difference to him. Perhaps 'husbands were like that -- unless one mambd B man like Alan, who, of course, would be quite impossible in every oth*r way. She turned to a mirror and looked at the morning gown that had diverted Roger from his doubt of her policy. It was of soft thick Jsilk, tho color of honey, opaque and sinuous. Lace was used lavishly on it -- old lace, a genuine point de Flandren that was yellow with time. .Shirley couldn't quite remember wh«t the price of the gown was going to be ; the bill had not yet been presented. There were many other bills that had not yet been presented. In her mind, SI irU-y wandered over her house, inspecting, approving. Color and light had been added everywhere; luxury had been suggested only elusiyely -- an elabo- · · "I've been shopping and 1 want my tea. Good! Here it la." "Go on btin£ tired and let mo pour out," he invited. She watch ad him pour out tho tea and was surprised at his deftness. She hid always thought of him as fumbling at small things. "How can you know I don't tako augar?" she asked as he handed her the cup. It was on tho tip of his tonf*u« to tell her that ne remembered every incident of the tea they had had together over seven years BKO, but he made no answer. "And now tell me all abouti everything," he said as she leaned back with a sigh of contentment. Sho read TUB thought and laughed. '·Vow dori'i really want to hear about all tho hotels, the scenery of Norway, the fun at Southampton, do you? Own up." "No," he laughed back. "Well, I think I'll tell yon what you really w^nt to know. On tho whole I think I prefer being married to being single." "Good!" he ejaculated. "I was really livung in cotton- wool with Aunt Marion.

"You look as if y u had been expecting rne," he said. "That's how I fee!," she said spontaneously, and added: "I was not really expcctirg you, of course. But I've b en thinking about you today.
