Placed In a home for old people, she ran away after one day because she said she felt young and did not like to live with old people. She says she has never been ill and has had three husbands.

EXPERT WATER PUMP REPAIR Hubbard Hardware Phone 2015 HETf were out. The words that she knew in her heart she had wanted to hear ever since Adrian Kaye had walked into her schoolroom had been said. Perhapi Cora Johnson bad even let herself dream of hearing these words a long time ago, when the honesty and sincerity of his letters first began to appeal to her. But the dreams had never become more than fleeting bits of gossamer* passing swiftly through her mind. Miss Cora Johnson knew herself too well for that She wai not a person for -horn, on the past record, dreams had been profitable or for whom dreams had come to stay. If, indeed, the had let her fancy stray, she bad done so with no real hope of fancy becoming reality. She had dreamed as one might toy with the idea of Utopia while, at the same time, recognizing its impossibility But now it appeared that she had been overskeptical and faint - hearted. Plainly, almost bluntly, Adrian Kaye had asked her to become his wife. The shock of it, the idea of so drastic ; and welcome a change from her (unhappy situation, momentarily robbed her of her powers of speech. Adrian mistook her dazedness >for hesitation. "I know, my dear," he said quickly. "You can't decide this in a second. It's a big step. And I've told you about my place at Iberville. Frankly, it't darn lonely The more I think of it" —a trown creased his forehead —"the more I see I haven't much to offer." She stared st him. Ah, If he only kncwl "Lonely," he said, as if the sort of loneliness he meant tyould be a drawback. But how could he realize that, 1|K ^11 . .^»^7F~- «»\in '.-I ^-v^.-.. though surrounded ai fb* usually was by people, she had yet known a different loneliness, loneliness of the stark screaming kind? And "I haven't much to offer?" Oh, no, thought Miss Johnson. Nothing except security and protection and, undoubtedly, his affection—at the very least. Just about everything that a woman of her age and background could expect. Everything, in fact, that any woman basically . . . But she had to say something. She -uldn't iust sit, virtually gaping, and twisting her bands beneath the table. 'Adrian. I—1 just don't know what to say." TTE gave the impression of •*•* barely hearing her wordi. Ha seemed anxious to get on with painting what he evidently considered the black tide of the picture. "Don't jay anything right now, dear. It would be better to thirJc it over. Because, naturally, there are things for you to think over, apart trom myseU. My kidf. for instance. They'd come into your life, in a big way. Well, as I've told you, they're really good kids. But they can be • handful. Jack dnd young Adrian are half- grown now and if there's »ny mischief going, they're up to their necks in it. Nothing serious ever, you understand. And, I can truthfully MJ. no meanness or underhnndedneu. Jint high spirits, plus a lot of misdirected energy. But Marian tort oi makes up for those hoodlumi. She's just eight and a sweet little thing. You wouldn't have trouble with her." 'I doubt U I'd have much trouble with any of them." Temporarily she felt on familiar ground again. "I'rr> used to children—you fcnow." "Well," said Adrian, "that's the rough tituaUoo. Ar.d you know, Apparently Adrian admired and respected her enough to want to shar*. his life with ner. But suppose he knew the truth which, before that could ever happen, he was certainly entitled to know? What would be ttnd to admire, then? Could anyone r«- spect a person who crouched 1 a terrified mouse before the hand o. a blackmailer? A person whose own self-respect had long since been -'tssiDated? No, thought Miss Johnson. Inevitably such knowledge would send her plummeting down in 'jit estimation. Oh. he would be kind and sympathetic, because he woi made that way. He would say that he understood; that, In the circumstances, he could not blame her for having been weak. He might even try to help her. But, after all, Adrian was a man, not a god. Behind any sympathy and understanding. « "fin of contempt must form, instantly and infallibly. • • • CITTING in the little tearoom, 0 watching aa Adrian made a business of lighting a cigaret, she could not honestly have said -hether or not she loved Mm. Love, to Cora Johnson, was an unfamiliar quantity. She had had virtually no experience ol it. But beyond * doubt she liked Adrian Kaye far too much to use him simply as a mean." of escape. If the accepted him now. walked out of her unpleasant situation through the door he held open, she knew that ncr conscience would neyei let her alone. She would have made ft kind of marriage of convenience, for her. And constant remembrance of her own futility and unfinished business left behind in a small town she had comt to detest, would roL even such a marriage of most of If meaning.
