Harry had gone to his fKisiness, Ted to school. In the kitchen faint tinkling sounds reported that Eleanor was washing .the dishes. Aunt Elta dawdled over her toast and marmalade, grateful for a leisurely breakfast. Her unexpected arrival had been a godsend to Louise, grieving quile sincerely at Vincent's departure for Paris. U had been 30 hard to sink back Into the seemingly futile round of housework from which he had lifted her. Her trips around the city with Vincent had shown her so vividly what she had missed, When Aunt Ella had "dropped in for a little visit" on the very day What Vincent was sailing, her \vel- ^.•omc had been most cordial and sincere. "Louise, dear, I thought at first you were nil wrong," said Aunt Ella, growing confidential in the atmosphere of peace and cheerfulness that pervaded the attractive room. "I used lo think you were 'soft.' I was afraid your marriage had destroyed your sense of values. But after 1 saw your children, I realize that you knew best. Of course I, too, was building for the future, so we were really working for the same ends in a diflerent way. AM perhaps you were wiser than I and chose the belter." "Oil, Aunt Ella." T.ouise gasped in her surprise. "I don't think so at nil. I think you've been wonderful. And it must be such a satisfaction to you to feel your lite has been so worth while. I feel there's a renl grandeur about the way you an<i some of the others have given your lives for the cause." "Humph!" said Aunt Ella, amused by her nir.-c's tardy cn- "Bul aow, you see, my 1 >T Mt* S-rrlf. r« work Is about done and what is left to me? You et least have your family and will always have an interest in life." "Of course that's true, Aunt Ella, but it's hard to know how far you should go in suppressing yourself and in losing yourself in other people's lives. I sometimes feel 've never really lived at all. I've .iad to give up what meant so much to me—my art work—I've had lo devote all my energies to making life smooth and comfortable for olhers. I begin to think that it was very wrong. The children of course h.nd to be looked after, and I don't begrudge (hem a minute lhat I gave them. But I wonder sometimes if I really hnd the right to bury my own life, my own talcnt-r, so completely. Was it fair to Harry? If I had made a fuss at the beginning I think he might have given me more consideration. But I was afraid—afraid lo spoil my home." * * * AUNT ELLA slirrcd her coilce absently as she looked thoughtfully around the room. "But, at least, Louise, you've been comfortable. Things have gone smoothly for you, haven't they? It's so peaceful here and it seems marvelous to me—just to escape the constant turmoil and friction—" "Oh, friction!" Louise frowned but resisted (he impulse to be impatient. "Of course, I try to avoid that." A\int Ell.l was interested hut not entirely convinced that Louise had any real reason for unhappiness or resllessness. She carried the discussion no further, however, but maintained a close survey of the entire household. Aunt Ella, at first taking Louise's little services as a matter of course, began to wonder how her niece could l:e so unf.'ilinrjly calm and cheerful. She felt a gradual irri- tation rising within her at Harry's complacent acceptance of his wife's devotion. It never seemed to occur to him that Louise needed anything more out of life than to care for her home and family. The more she thought of Louise, hopelessly imprisoned in domestic chains, the more angry Aunt Ellen became. "That's the sort of thing we've been fighting for," Aunt Ella told horse!f crossly. "To free women from slavery. But a woman's status in her own home depends so much on her personal relationship to her husband—and upon her own character. I wonder if financial independence would make a difference in every case." For a couple of weeks Aunt Ella enjoyed resting, dawdling in the morning, taking leisurely walks in the afternoon.. Then she suddenly tired of it. "Louise, isn't there something I can do around the house?" she asked abruptly at breakfasl one day. « * • JgUT there wasn't much that Louise could suggest to calm her aunt's growing restlessness. "How can you stand it, Louise," Aunt Ella exclaimed, "to do the same things over and over? It's so monotonous. I begin to feel stifled just watching you." Louise smiled. "That's just what I had to make up my mind to. It wouldn't seem to an outsider that I had made any sacrifices, nut it's the monotony and the mental stagnation that gets on my nerves." A telegram arrived for Aunt Ella one morning and urgent letters from some of her co-workers. She was manifestly relieved and pleased to be sent for. "Louise, dear, I'm going west!" she cried excitedly. "After all. it'j better to he free and lonely, than penned tip even in luxury. I Jecl like an old war-horse sniffing the smoke of baltle. I'm starting off tomorrow. You've been a dear, Louise. If you ever get a chance to spread your wings, don't retus« to do so from a misplaced sense of duty." And Aunt Ella was on her way.
