The situation Is saved by tho appearance of Lorlng and Lillian, wlio had heard of her whereabouts and with whom she leaves the party. CHAPTER V : The First Quarrel • , Ernestine's anger and resentment • grew like a bonfire. .The small front room was cold, but she was unaware of Its temperature or of the frost ' gathering thick on the window. Every• thing was fuel to the flame which •' burned In her. The longer Will delayed the more her anger grew. His cavalier treatment of her. Tommy could take her hornet Mr. Poole . needed him. More than anything else, more, she told herself, than the humiliation of Mr. Pastano's scorn was this fact, that Mr. Poole mattered • more than she did. ' She gave herself up to anger as she had given herself to love — with ' abandon. Will had neglected her. He had humiliated her. She knew that she wou'.d not have cared for any of It so much If she bad not been forced '_ -to see It through the horrified eyes <q^<,libr sister and Lorlng. They were ': "pitying her now.

' • "Up yet?" be asked In a husky . whisper, "You should hnve been In ; bed two hours ago. It's cold as the devil outside. But what's the mntter. bitten? Aren't you well?" "Don't speak to me!" snld Ernest .In'.-, and the fnct that, like himself, sliu had to lower h?r voice In consideration for pooiili' slroping on either sldu only added to her i-ate. "But Ernestine!" "Don't speuU to me !" she cried again, and this time lier voice was clear. "I uever want to go anywhere with you again." "Be silent," he commanded in a voice low but stem, and Ills eyes leaped back at her with tin anger eijual to her own. "Huvo you lost your wits? Shouting In this place In the middle of the ni^ht?" Ernestine stood, her moutli o[>i;n 11 little In amazement at hi.-; torn.-. Hot wonts tremtilcrt npnn her tongue. "Undress flnd get In bed," Sold Will, "whnt 60 you mean, sitting here, with out more clothes on, In this icy foota? t>6 you Wish to harm yourself?" She laughed, "toti ace concerned abimt my welfare, aren't you?" she taunted him, and for answer he seized her shoulders and gave her a quick tittle shake. "Ernestine," he demanded, "will yon do as t say?" She stood trembling, fighting down the stupid well of tears, reaching out after her departing anger. "Will,"—her voice was as low, as vital as his own—"I'm In such a rage that I have got to talk to you. Ton can't treat me this way. too can't leave me to the courtesy of strangers. You can't take me to such places— where there's drunkenness and Immorality. You have got to be a better husband to me than that I hnve given up everything for you—everything— "When you are In bed, Til talk to yon," he answered, as be threw off his coat and went to the wardrobe and brought her her warm dressing gown, nightgown and fur-lined moccasins. Be nndld the fastening of her dress and before she could arm herself against him, he lifted It off over her head. The satin slip, the silken nn- derthlngs—her body was like colil marble. In a moment. It seemed, she was in nightgown and dressing gown. In bed. and he was drawing off her gossamer hose and chafing her feet In his own cold hands until the mottled skin showed red with blood. Then he tucked her under the covers and brought a chair and snt down beside her. not touching her. Ernestine laughed again. "If you really cared," she said, her eyes dark with anger and pain, "whether I were warmly In bed you might have come with me to see." He was silent. He was very pale. Small beads of perspiration stood upon his forehead In the cold room. "I rim not likely to be 111," she said scornfully. "Don't be afraid of that" Still he did not speak, but looked at her as though he were trying to arrange some momentous decision in his mind. He took a cigarette from his pocket with hands trembling so that when he lighted it he burned himself, and flung the match away with an angry exclamation. "Ernestine," he sold, turning to her, "there is one thing that I will never take from you. You are hysterical now, but no matter how angry, how sick or upset yon are, there Is one thing that you must never say to me. Never again. I won't take It from you." He drew the smoke Into his lungs with an effort at self-control, while she stared up at the blur of him, her dark eyes swimming with tears. "I didn't know that you gave up anything for me," he said. "I thought this marriage was on both sides the satisfying of a strong need. I never asked you to make a sacrifice for me. 'At least, that Is not the way I thought ;of it, .and I, don't*think,you did eltheiv 'Bat if you made one,'! will never'ask you to'.continue It Any time'you want what you left yon have only to put on your hat and go baqk and get it^Thls must, be'Understood between ! You are under no compulsion to tnW\ If yon gave np other things, It was because this-was something you wanted more. "Either our marriage was a gain for both of us, or it was a mistake." "Why don't .you go ahead and remind, me that I proposed to you?" she said,'too helpless In her own emotions to be sensible. "Did you?" he nsked coldly. "1 thought the matter was spontaneous. I thought it was Inevitable. Don't cheapen yourself with such a thought But however It happened, It was not a sacrifice. I will not be sacrificed for. I don't want anybody to give up any- thlna for rae. Understand?" (Continued Next Wednesday).
