"And Cousin Harry wouldn't even let you continue your art itudies?" "It wasn't entirely his fault," she raid. "There was so much to do, keeping house." "He could have hired a maid," said Vincent. "It makes him (eel that he is somebody. That's why iie keeps you at home and gives pou no freedom. Jealousy, perhaps. In his heart he's afraid ot you, afraid of your mind, afraid he will lose you. Not really lose rou—you aren't the .type who n-ould run away,' but he doesn't ivant you to he mentally independent ot himself for fear you might judge him." "Not that bad really," Louise said mildly in defense of her husband. "Probably Harry's father was the same way—it's the way he was brought up." "True. It's a family tradition But why do you put up wilh it?' "It won't do me any good to rebel, Vincent. It would only break up my home, and 1 don't want to live in an atmosphere of constan quarreling." "You'd rather kill your own sou —that secret rebellion is eating ou your heart." "No." Louise smiled at the ex cited little man, her husband's cou sin. "I'm not re.illy rebellious now At first I was. I hated Harry when 1 bc;an to find out what he wa really like. Bui gradually I've be come resigned. The anger ha Bone. I know that Harry can' nolp himself. He believes he is siood husband. There are man men Like he is, unable to apprecint brain.? or talent in a woman. The have to feel their power—feel tha they are superior in their ow Jiome.

"He knows you are bet- er than he is." "1 feel very sorry for him," said x>uise. "1 think 1 still love, him oo. In spite of everything." PHEY were walking down Fifth Avenue on a lovely spring day. The streets were' crowded because suffragette parade was scheduled (or that afternoon. 'What makes women want to /ote?" Vincent demanded impa- iently. "French women get whai hey want without voting." "You're talking like Harry,' .ouise chided. "But today so manj American women earn their own iving they feel that they need the •ole to protect their rights." "All (his makes them unlovely —when women demand something f they are attractive they can al- vays get what they want. And i hey're not attractive, what doe. anything matter to them anyway? 1 "It's for those women the Suf 'ragettes are fighting—to save un ovely women from being con slantly downtrodden." A distant sound of music, a sud den surging of the crowd, tol them the head of the parade wa approaching. Vincent arfd Louis found a place at the curb an watched the approach. A hush fe' on the chattering crowd. Men i all ranks of life stood with sobe faces while the long lines of se rious, purposeful women passed by Suddenly Louise gave a gas: Vincent, looking al her sharpl saw that her eyes were filled wil tears. He look her arm wilh gentle solicitude. "It's nothing," she said shakil. "I just saw Aunt Ella. .She's gi\ en her life for the sufTraget cause.

Ire sat down stiffly and carefully s her back felt brittle. It had con a glorious parade and the end their long, earnest striving eemed in sight. The Constitu- onal amendment had been rati- ed, the papers said. But strangely enough, Aunt Ella as not exhilarated at the thought f success. She was, all of a sud- en, realizing her condition. Sh« 'as an old woman, wearied before er time by untiring work for ther women. She had hosts of ac- Ufiintancos among her fellow- workers but nobody who seemed eally to belong to her. Her only iving relative now was Louise, nd Louise was probably absorbed n her family. What a glowing, ntelligent girl Louise had been. ft had seemed too bad that the hilcl should settle down and give ip all her ambitions. But now Aunt Ella began to wonder ivhether perhaps Louise had been wise after all. LouLse still had •omcthing to live for. while she icrself faced empty years, now hat her work for Woman Suffrage was done. "I wonder,* she muttered, 'whether Louise is really happy. Would I have been better oft If I'd married and raised a family ind been what they call a normal woman? I thought thr.' it was worth any sacrifice to get votes for women—but maybe—probably— the women that come after us will Like it all as a matter of course and never give a thought to us who really laid down our lives for them." Aunt Ella brooded uneasily, massaging her tired ankles. Then she came to a sudden decision. "Ill go and see Louise. I'll make sure for myself whether she is happy—whether her choice was so wise. I'll sec if I can't justify my own life, at least to myself. What's more, I'll go tomorrow and I won't tell her I'm coming. Then she can't prepare any alibis."
