SYNOPSIS CHAPTER II— The loya-maKlns progresses swiftly, and anally, largely because of Ernestine's urging, they make a "runaway" marriage. Brlce- land Is Infuriated but helplesfi, Ernestine being of age, and after a stormy scene the g'.rl, with her husband, leaves her parents' home. Coring Hamilton, wealthy young lawyer, long U«lan s suitor, wins her consent to be his wife. CHAPTER in— The bridal night Is opent at Will's home, and next flay they begin their married life In a nlnglo room In a humble neighborhood. Ernestine realizes the difference, her marriage has made In her social sphere, but, secure In her love, faces the future bravely. <Contlnued fromTack Wednesday.) AH the places were Oiled except theirs, and the men rose to greet Ernestine. There was only one other woman, Mrs. Wiston, the wife of the syndicate editor of the Sun, a small beautiful woman with the face of a siren who can never forget her role. She had been married twice before she had met Wiston, and Ernestine knew that back In New England were the wlfd; and child Wiston had set aside for her.- Ernestine was conscious of the indignation common to married women against such an Impostor. Wiston himself, a tall academic man with a ribbon to his glasses, Ernestine had met at the office, and John Tucker, called Tommy by every one, who was Will's rival for honors In the art room. The third man who was presented to her Ernestine did not know and she failed to catch his name. He was -a small powerful • looking individual,' with a dark mustache, bright <gray eyes and a vain and elaborate | -manner. The other two men, Under- J « Oirood -and Harrison, were from the ' t* , ' A< * • • ' 4 Sun staff, and happy to be at any ' jlpartyj^any time, any place.

He took his glass In his hand. "And .more intoxicating," he said, "than this for which I have wasted half my life and most of my talents." Ernestine, looking up In his kind face, knew Instantly that In spite of his flowery words, and in spite of Mrs. Bennett's conventional fears, this great man had no predatory impulses toward her. He knew that she was deeply in love with Will. But to watch her, to speak to her, to listen to her voice, gave him pleasure. It was all he would ever want of her. Her Instinct in this matter proved true, during the years of Will's association with Mr. Poole. "And what have yon two young pieces of impudence been doing since last I saw you?" "We have dined in state at mamma's," said Ernestine, smiling mischievously. "Will missed the slgnifl- 'cance of It entirely. Papa has, under duress, forgiven him. Ho offered Will a job in his office." "And what does Will say?" "He didn't even pay any attention to It. He Just said that lie was satisfied with the Job ho had, thanks just the same, and went on talking to mamma." Mr. 1'oole • laughed with delight. "Doesn't he know what papa wants': "I don't know whether he does or not But anyhow, papa knows that, now he has decided to forgive Will, ,W1H doesn't Intend to let It make any difference. Papa really would like to 'let us struggle along. He fools pretty disappointed In me. But uumnm cun't .bear it. She is detormlnei.1 to take care of us, whether we will or no." "But how can she, If Will does not change his employment'/" Ernestine's face grew (Inn. "She can't. I won't let her. I've mr.du up my mind to have nothing but what 'Will can give me, I dou't wind being poor." "You must resist poverty," Mr Poole said. "It Is the deadly eiietnj of marriage." Ernestine's small face was scornful i Poverty was not so black as It was 'painted, she observed. He looked ill her. "You do not believe me? Walt, then ond see." "But we are poor now. It's fun to be poor.' 1 "You — poor!" Ills amazement was so genuine that Ernestine looked at ,him In surprise. "My darling child," lie reasoned with her, "you don't know what the word means. You two- still in the flush of flrst love, without children, without a house to burden you, without a responsibility I One bed will do for both of you, one room ,wlll bold two hearts together. You liare well, you are eager, you are fed 'iuj(| clptbed and housed. You have a trwflk full of pretty clothes, an adoring mjtmma begging to do things for you, you 40 not know the cold and gdlouj breach of poverty at all. I dark little children with" great beads and emaciated bodies, houses held together by string*—Shamble* t til show yon pale girls, and prostitution, nnd bare shelve*, and empty cupboards, and pride best double. Lack Is a cruel witch. Pray that yon may neref know her." "tet you Just told me to wait I* "Ah, but that was nonsense. Life will never be cruel to you." They nte the excellent food put before them, and talked, the men arguing among themselves about a technicality in some one's work, Will and Underwood and Mr. WlstOa deep In It, Mr. Poole and Tommy competing for Ernestine's attention. Presently Tommy was drawn into the men's talk, and Mr. Poole leaned close to Ernestine and became very confidential. • "Will tells me you are going to have a child. 1 think that is the last perfection, t always knew that he was gifted, but his. marriage with you has established the certainty of his future. Such things ore not accidents. He is the chosen of the gods, or one of their finest gifts would not be his. He has all the elements of success. And a wife nnd children will do the forging." Ernestine's cheeks burned. She could not understand how Will could have told his still precious secret to Mr. Poole. But she exercised great self-command to be quiet and responsive to him. Ho went on praising Will, nnd assuring her of the brightness of his future, until, after a little, she forgot her confusion and told him :ier own feelings about Will. The party grew very gay, and Ernes- Ine joined In the general happiness. Without warning the tight little man with the powerful shoulders was on his feet. lie bowed to Ernestine, rtfod 10 bowed around the room, and everywhere hands began to clap and there were shouts of Joyous approval at sight of him. With a gesture Indescribably complacent, he held up his hand for silence and got It Instantly. Standing so, his chest pushed out like a pouter >lgeon's, his body rocking back on his leels, his napkin in his hand, which 'But You Have Lived In the Country?" flourished from time to time, he jegan to sing. It was Siegfried's cry of joy, when he passed through the flames and found the sleeping Brunhllde. Ernestine recognized it, as she recognized the man. He was Mostane, one of the world's greatest tenors. And she had criticized his manner! But now, all else was swept away, and she lived only through her ears, on which fell each perfect note. She knew In delightful anticipation what his gplden voice would do nest, and her heart soared with his voice. He stopped abruptly, rocked a moment on his heels and then gently, softly, poignantly he sang without accompaniment : Still wle die Nacht Tlef wle das Meer Sol delne Llebe seln. The tears rained down Ernestine's cheeks. He sat down In a storm of excited applause. Ernestine could not stop crying. She leaned on Will's shoulder, for he came and sat beside •her and put his arm about her. When, at last she could breathe steadily she rose and went around the table to Mostuue and took his fat face In her two hands and kissed him. There was a cheer from all the tables, and Will gleamed at her with approval for bar spontaneity. "Nothing else was adequate," declared Mr. I'oole. The hours passed In a trance. The patronage In the dining room changed, grew noisier, more turbulent Girls came and went on the stage, and danced nnd sang, and twinkled pretty feet, and flk-kcd bare knees. It was ull an unreal blending of sight and sound and color, and Ernestine's heart WHS fur uway, In some lontly space \vlih Will. Uer being still trembled with that last swelling note. Dimly lu lior mind slic felt an awakening of artistic comprehension, a spiritual un derstamllng <>t the strength and power of perfect performanca Will had Intent In him some such force, but it was far from Impulses to such finished authority. Her thought wag not thai clear, but groping. It was time to go home, and ErnfcS- tlne wanted Will to take her away from the others. But she saw that Mr. Poolo was not himself at all any longer. Will always took him bumf, from the olllce, from ouch affalra a» this, to bis flat. Ernestine felt ttJUt she could not bear to be parted from Will tonight. She became conscious of a man standing buhlud her, a little to one side, regarding her gravely, quietly. She glanced up at him but did not know him. He was a huge man, with a great dark bead and clear dark skin. He wore a sack suit, and bis narrow tie glittered with a ruby of enormous size, set in a gold circle. On one of big big brown bands, which were covered with coarse black hair, wag another such gem. Ernestine remembered with a feeling of falntness all the wild stories she bad heard l'Qjlauo'8 cists being so disor- Will, at least, was Sober, a« be always was. Mr. Poole notf saw the stranger, greeted him and called him to the table. "And this Is Mrs. flfodd, my youat friend's Wife, tern know Wlll» of course, nnd the others. Ernestine, this is Ruby Pastaho, Jewel merchant, word boss, and the owner of this dive. A bad man—a terrible man. Shake hands with him." Mri Poole was enjoying himself and looked Up at Pastano with glee. Mr. Pastano did not smile. He still fixed on Ernestine that queer solemn look. He bowed above her. "Sit down. Ruby, sit down!" commanded Mr. Poole thickly, and motioned for a waiter to bring d chair, which Was produced Instantly. Mr. Pnstano sat down between Mr. Poole and Ernestine, and she felt his gravity spreading about the table, so that nil were a little quieted. "This Is my birthday," Ernestine explained graciously. "I am twenty-one years old today, nnd Mr. Poole was kind enough to have a party for me. Now that you have come, It Is more charming." "Your voice—" he snld, his own tone soft nnd silky. "Where are you born?" She told him, naively, the address of her mother's house. "But you have lived In the country.?" "Oh, yes, always, In the summer. My Grandmother Langley had a home In Indiana where my father's quarries are. Why do you nsls?" "Never mind me. Tell me of yourself. This house In the country, nnd your home on Sheridan road Is a long way from here." Ernestine understood his Idea, but she refused to be drawn Into such a complicated conversation. "It Is only a few miles," she replied, and he gave nn .Impatient exclamation. "It Is a thousand miles and a hundred years at least," he said. "Tell me about, your mother's house.". Ernestine thought about it. "Do you know anything about American period furniture, Mr. Pastano? There Is a Duncan Phyfe table, nnd pierced brass Ore-fender, In the living room; four-poster beds upstairs, with hooked rugs and woven counterpanes—all of the things have come Into the family honestly, through natural possession, nnd not from auction rooms. But, of course, yon know." She smiled at him. Her long hands lay together In the Immaculate perfection of her yellow chiffon lap. Her voice was low, only for his ears, and though she thought him very strange, she gave him her gravest, youngest courfiesyt '" : '*• •— - • '" : • 'I know nothing about America, nt all, it seems.'" , ' " ' "It's Just the house—I'll take you to see It some day, If you like, although mamma doesn't like people to consider it a museum, as some experts • do. ,Of course, I don't live there since my marriage. We live In a rooming house "on Erie E tret, nnd It Just shows tEat furniture and things do not mean so much,.for I am happier now than 1 was.":..,- «•• ' . • '.' .. • i'JFou have lef this house of your mother, with pierced brags from your own ancestors, to live In Erie street?" She nodded and smiled again, and her eyes pleaded for his understanding. He shook bis bead sadly. He heaved a vast sigh. "No, I do not understand America. Continually 1 am full of new astonishment Women are somewhat the same the world around—but American men are outside my comprehension." 'You have been successful here," she reminded him, but be brushed her comment aside, pursuing his own thought aloud. "No, I do not understand. If my son is penniless; if he Is an artist starving in a garret, and tbe great, the incredible good fortune, come to him that he shah marry a girl of noble birth, who has a quiet voice, and gentle still bands, and a brow where breeding shows its lovely smile— If my son have tbe grace and the smile of fortune to marry such a girl, and he bring ber to a place like this—" He looked about him with scorn. "If he bring his wife to this brothel—this sink—I take a knife in my own band and stab him through the heart. You must go away from here Instantly—now! There Is activity In this room that pollutes the very air. You will strangle In it—" Ernestine's heart stopped beating In her astonishment She felt that she had been unbearably affronted, and she rose and stood pale with anger. Mr. Pastano rose and stood before her, and met with approval tbe blaze of her eyes. A waiter appeared instantly with ber coat, and he took it and wrapped It about her with Immense dignity, "So, go, princess!" he exclaimed, and bowed a little, and looked at her again, bis own eyes alight "You have only rny good wishes. It Is unfor- innate I must confess the title to a place unfit for you, but this place was not made for you. The unfit, the broken, the abnormal must have their haunts, and they are not for others. Some day, perhaps, It will be my fortune that we shall be friends." Every oue was staring at them. Will had risen and stood beside her, smiling uncertainly, not knowing at all what wan going forward. "I want to go home," Ernestine said to him Icily. "Tommy will take yon," Will answered frually, "1 have to take Mr. I'oole to lil* flat." Ernestine ft-lt herself beginning to tremble with the luOlgrjItlfcw heaped upou her, Hhe bad been no in love, v> (!xpo»o(l, that It all hurt her Incredibly, Hb« looked about ber uncertainly, then laugii^l and answered Will with c^iopoirore. "1 don't !L>fc)k-»6 lit bave to depend on Tommy, \\vtit ttro Lillian and Lor- lug. They'll take uui \\iitun" Will swung about in odtcmUhment, and there, indeed, coming through tbe room uneasily, were Lillian and her lover. Ernestine stood, smiling malignantly, as they came forward. "Ernestine," exclaimed Lillian, when she was near enough, "I wanted to see you. We went to Mrs. Bennett's, but the. wftifl said you, were. her& «fi wl followed' $66.- Can you cotae with UB?". , "! was Jolt golfig," answered terTSW- tlne. '%ut wait and meet otrf frleBds. This is my sister, Miss Brleeland, Mrs. Wiston, and Mr. Poolfe Lllljan, and Monsieur Mostnne, and Mr. Wiston 6t tbe Sun, and Mr. Underwood, nnd Mr. Heyward— and this lil Mf. Pastano. who owns this charming place. And this is Mr. Hamilton, Mrs. Wlston— " The men had risen and were fumbling o?ef 'the fieknowledgettieats 6f the Introductions. Ernestine seemed the most composed person present, find no one could have guessed that her knees were trembling. "We wanted to get on. If you and Wilt can come with as," said Lorlng, while Mr. Pastano stood and regarded the newcomers evenly. "I'll come with you, but Will has nil engagement before he returns home. Goodby, Mr. Poole. Thank you for (he evening." She gave her hand to her host, and he put his own hand on her shoulder to steady himself. Lorlng winced and scowled at this contact, but Ernestine was now In complete command of herself and smiled steadily. Mr. Poole's heavy face, his confusion, did not dismay her. She bade him an affectionate good night, then turned to the others. "Good night, all of you. I'm sorry to run away, from my own party, but somebody must start. If you will excuse me— Good night, Will. I'll see you later." She gave Will a luminous look. He did not answer but stared nt her silently, ond she turned, sweeping her wrap about her, carrying herself like a queen of the realm, and went off, Loring's black bulk between the sisters, his face dark with forebodings. Down the wooden stairs they passed In complete silence. A new sedan stood at the curb, nnd Lorlng in majestic silence opened s the car door for the girls who got In the bock sent He closed the door and got in the driver's seat and started the engine. Lillian and Ernestine sat close together in the warmth and comfort of the heated upholstered, glass-enclosed Interior. Ernestine felt for the first time a poignant homesickness for' comfort nnd convenience. "Why didn't Will come with Us?" asked Lorlng from the front seat Ernestine decided to be frank. "You could see that Mr. Poole had been drinking too much, couldn't you? Well, Will felt that he ought to take him home and see that he got there safely. He often does that They're good friends, yon know. And you mustn't think badly of Mr. Poole. He's old, and, really, he Is a wonderful man," "But how about you? How would you have got home? Our coming 'along was an accident" • "Tommy Tucket would have token me." said Ernestffie calmly. "Or the Wistons, or Monsieur 'Mostane. Pd have gone home all right"-. • There was a silence of disapproval and adjustment The car rolled smoothly along Ehe quiet streets. "Then everything's all right?" asked Lillian diffidently. "Of course, darling." "I'm so glad. Will you come and have lunch with mamma and me tomorrow nnd let me tell you all cm- plans?" "I'll see," said Ernestine. "Now, I'll have to go home. I'm terribly tired." "Of course you are. It's late. I'm tired, too. But, Ernestine, I'm so happy that I wonder If I can be any happier." Her voice was bright and clear — quick and competent Ernestine remembered the tears and passion of her own engagement "You will be bappy always. You will," she said with Intensity. They left her at tbe stone steps and watched until she opened the door with her latchkey and disappeared into the dork prison-like house. Then Lor- lng turned the car about and, with Lillian at his side, started back north, Lillian cuddled against him. "Ob, Lorrie," she said sorrowfully. "she isn't bappy. You know she Isn't It wouldn't be so bad for her to be poor, if only he were good to her. Bat you can see that be neglects her. If he cannot provide for her decently he could at least be a gentleman to her. But after all she has done for him, he mistreats her." "Don't be disturbed about It, darling," said Loring In e. low voice. "There's nothing we can do now. Only be good to her and wait for her to waken." In Mrs. Bennett's boarding house Ernestine climbed the stairs slowly, feeling herself weak with rage. (Continued Next Wednesday). LOTTS CREEK NEWS. Leo Swaftfion Is driving & newfchev* rolet Sedan.
