Wheti dinner was over, the panel* were throvn back and Shirley passed into t i ' e drawing room, leaving the men to their liqueurs. She strolled over to a table in the corner wherenpo: waa a litter of Continental pape ·» and magazine*. Her eye was caught by the rotogravure seefcion of a New York paper. She jrUnced ; t the date--the second week in A igust--and began idly to turn the tages. A moment later she was staring headlights ahowed her that a DIM- at ? full page photograph of her- your innnc diate system, with special reference to Shirley 1 ! acquaintanceship with leading figures. Stavros, sh« found, was a tedious, apologetic sort of a man but easy enough to entertain. While they were still taking coffee, tile attache abruptly returned, bowed to Shirley and to Mauroia, then turned to his Chief. "Sir, the cousin »f the Prime Minister has refused to discuss the matter of his detention with me. He has, in fact, sent me to demand *lv» grate of wrought Iron was be- tag opensd by a servant, A short ran through an avenue of squat trees brought thaw to the house, a miniature palace built of stone in the classical style. On the porch an Armenian butlor awaited her and took her through a lofty 'iall to a suite of rooms where an elderly French maid ra- tfeved he: ol her cloak. When she rsturiied to the ball, Mfvurois was iraiting for her. As they approached each other, ghe felt his approving glance--the (.·lance o* a connoisseur of women which confirmed her impression that her dress was exactly right for the dccaaion. "If wr were in Paria 1 would be compelled to apologize to you for the unavoidable absence of Madame Stavro£" he told her. "The lady is tndisposed. I gather not seriously Stavros telephoned and begged permission to bring an at- tache in her place." Shirley was disappointed. She had hoptrri to make good progress with the Commissioner's wife, "I am sorry," she said, and added: "But I am glad we are not in Paris, or I should be compelled to get back into the car s.nd go home. You arc stricter with the conven- tion.i then we are." "We i,re strict in our conventions for the joy of breaking them," returned Maa;;ois, and led her to the drawing room. The d-.-awing room was the room of a cultured Frenchman and played i:s part in fmfeinp Shirley lose consciousness of being in a rnmote .'nd barely civilized country, until Stavros waa announced and cann; in wearing an elaborate Order, followed by a youthful at- tache wi.'aring a slightly lesa elaborate Onier. Introductions were performed and Shirley inquired after the health o ' Madame Stavros. "My vnfe will be doubly dasola- ferl and will give herself the privilege o:f calling upon Madam at the earliest date. It is nothing, I assure you, but a gross inconvenience, this little malady. Our ·women, alas, lack the exuberant health 0:;' the American ladies." The routine of mutual compfi- rncnta collo-.vcd, while Maurois monopolized the attache. Presently panels in the wall were parted and they passed through into the dining room. The dinner, thought Shirley, judged by European standard*. was a li'.tle too elaborate, but her main concern was with the Com- missio'ner. The attache proved himself a nonentity. Mauroia, with the skill born of a vast social experience, helped her to concentrate upon Stivros, who professed himself ergrc33cd in her account of her trip into the country that aft- s.nd again the Commit- 3io»cr would become absorbed in his own explanations of the country, and then invariably would pull himself up with sudden self- consciot'sneaa and glance at Mnur- oia as ii' to appologiite for taking up too much of her attention. The comitadji--the Cpmtnis- gioncr---both were afraid of ernoon. Now self. "Mrs. Roger -telton (niece of Mrs. Sibley), wl o, with her hua- band, Roger K Iton, has taken Finecliff in the Vermont Hills and who will cntertai i at R house party there in the Autinsn." Shirley slipped the paper nnder- neath a pile of o hers. It was the futile, hurried gt-stare of a guilty child. Through the panelling she could hear Mauris laughing--it Stavros included Shirley and Mauroir in a single sweeping bow. "It is an affair of State," he explained. "You perceive, madatnc, and you, Morieieur Maurois, that my duty demands that I sacrifice myself." A couple of roinutos later, Shirley was alone with Manroir. "May we now speak English?" asked Kianrois. "There is much In language. When I speak French I Shirley Slip led the Paper Underneath « Pile of Otlwr*. waa as if he h i d been watchinr. am incurably national and am in L ~ ~ danger of paying you complimenta --v?hich would make you laugh.

"After all, w tat does it matter if he docs knoT ?" she 'challenged herself, and kne * in h«r heart that it mattered quit -· a lot. He would think of her di 'ferontfy If he allowed himself t" think of her as « divorr*e. The panels parted bat 'only Stavro* and Mz tirois cawe in. "My attache is indeed unfortunate," explained Stavros. "As you left u» we recei r ed a message that called him awn: .
