Of course it was too bad her mother couldn't seem to understand her ar! work. Perhaps all old people were like that. 'Louise used to feel hurt by her ^mother's stupid criticisms, but she -had gradually come to realize that *er mother just did not know anything about art and never would understand. Louise sighed. It was :hard sometimes not to have any•body around to take an intelligent (interest in this absorbing work. 'Perhaps Harry — At the thought of him she smiled and began wondering if he'd like her in the new dress she had made for this evening. There had been a song in her heart as she took each stitch, she was so very much in love. The dress seemed in keeping with her feelings, lor it was covered gaily with roses. She hoped Harry would no1 mink it loud. She certainly had made it prettily, and it was becoming.' Harry ought to be pleased that she could sew so cleverly. Did men notice such things, she wondered, or were they only concerned with — other 'things? Men of this day, the day of the horseless carriage, gas lights and Men of this day, the day of the horseless carriage and fas light*, did not seem to notice pretty things. so many modern didn't seem to improvements,' notice pretty She put her easel and other art materials into their closet, then went upstairs to begin the ceremony of dressing. She slipped into the new dress and looked in the mirror with anxious questioning. Then she smiled at the lovely girl who faced her there. She was glad at the way she looked. She knew it was love that had brought the sparkle to her eyes, the soft flush to her cliecVs, the eager, trembling smile to her lips. For love had been gradually transforming her life giving her » new joy. a deeper purpose, a wiser outlook on the art of living. 'PHE sound ol the parlor'clock striking six made Louise realize suddenly thai she had work to do. She fastened her girdle of sof green satin arovmd her waist patted her curly chestnut hair picked up her prettiest handker chief, and ran downstairs. In the dining room the table wa [already set. "111 don't light the candles now I'll surely forget them," Louise murmured, going to the mantelpiece for a match. In the kitchen she found her mother in the act of opening the oven door. The delicious odor of browning biscuits filled the air. "Oh, mother, I was going lo make the biscuits!" Louise felt a shock of d i s a p p o i n t m e n t, "1 wanted Harry 16 know how well I cnn cook." "Well, you've done almost everything else, my dear," Mrs. Bentley said placidly. "You mustn't get all heated up, bending over the stove al the last minute. You just sec if the table's all right and then sit down and .rest till Harry gels here." "Do I look nice?" Louise continually needed reassurance on that point Mrs, Bcntloy's eyes rested fond- y on tocr daughter, but all she said was, "I guess you'll do. Louise perched herself on a high tool and watched her mother put- ering cheerfully about the big >right kitchen. She loved the warmth of the ratifje, the delicious smell of the biscuits, the purrinp of the kettle. She wonderec vhether she could ever become rcnl artist when she loved simplo domestic things so much. Just to >e within the walls of the house was a joy and comfort to her. Al ;he simple homely trjhs of house \ceping had for her a charm ant beauty all their own. Then the doorbell rang, and * happy excitement set her hear H uttering as she greet Harry. ran upstairs U lsc bul Louise woul think of having candles o the supper table for just an ordi nary occasion? Harry Wcslo thought with a stxlden feeling o pride. Everything about the table wa beautiful and dainty, and yet th food was good and substantia Louise knew how to make a ma comfoTlable, nil right. He looke across the table at her and smile to express his complete salisfac lion, He was so deep in his ow thoughts he had given only a d vided attention to the conversation f Louise was talking happil about that art school oi hers. And today," she was saying agerly, "my teacher said that my ainting showed real talent, and int i/ I kept on and worked hard r d reach the Academy some day." How lovely Louise looked when ,e was excited! But what a fool hat teacher was, urging the girl i. keeping her at her lessons. 'omen didn't ever reach the Acad- my—or hardly ever. He didn't n6w much about these things. Vhat was Mrs. Gentley saying? "That was very nice of him, 'm sure, my dear; but I guess he idn't know you're going to be tarried so soon. There won't be nuch lime for painting when the abies have lo be looked after.*' Oh, but, m o t h e r r ooked at her in dismay, shocked y the brutal, matter-of-facl calm- ess of the old. "Why. mother, I've ol lo go on with my paintingl You vnow how much it means to me', larry, I won't have to give it up. vill I? You think I have taleni. lon't you?" She looked at him appeal»r.gly. "Gt course you havi latent, 'xuiisc dear.

Besides, everything would work out all right. Once they were married. she wouldn't care about anything but her house—and him. She'd find L*oueh to do to make her husband comfortable. He smiled very kindly at her. Harry didn't know any other girls who would care about such things as art lessons. A g[rl was made for love and babies and homekeeping. Louise had appealed to him because she was so different from most girls, but he wa,s sure she wasn't too different. He look it as a matter of course that once she had been initialed into the mysteries of holy wedlock, she would prove as docile a wifr as he could wish. So he put himself out a lilllc to be kind to her and lo show his affection for her which was sincere and deep. LOOK.
