The little, fashionably dressed wom
an with the lorgnette looked hopeless
ly nt the long line of push-buttons nnd
letter-boxes on either side of the door
before she found the name. At Inst,
with n little reckless gesture, she
pressed the button. The hall door
clicked, nnd she began the long tramp
upstairs. When ono calls at an apart
ment house one always finds the per
son sought for on the top floor.
At the head of the fifth flight a door
clicked open. Mrs. Van Leyden found
herself looking Into tho face of a
young, dnrk-lialrcd woman.
"Miss Fnrroll?" she nsked.
"Come In," replied the other short
ly. She led her Into a gaudily fur
nished room, In the middle of which,
upon a hard, straight, velvet-covered
chair, sat a fat woman in middle life,
evidently Miss FnrrolPs mother, for,
except for the added years nnd em
bonpoint, the features were almost
identical. Mrs. Van Leyden looked at
tho daughter and at tho mother and
"Mamma I" said Miss Farrell.
"Oh, all right," said tho stout wom
an, nnd, taking the paper which she
had been reading, withdrew Into an
"What can I do for you, Mrs. "
"Van Leyden," said tho visitor.
A light of understanding came Into
Miss Farrcll's eyes.
"Not Bobby Van Leydcn's mother?"
she asked, apparently much amused
"Robert Vnn Leyden Is my son,"
answered the other quietly.
"Then I guess I know whnt you've
come for," retorted Miss Farrell. "Sit
down, won't you? Well, stand If you
prefer. You have heard that Bobby's
mnslied on me nnd want to stop It
before It gets to the wedding bells?
Well, don't trouble about that."
"I have no fear of that," said the
"Some people," said Miss Farrell,
"think tliat If a woman Is on the
stnge slie doesn't amount to much.
And that's where they guess wrong.
Why, If my Joe even beard of Bob
by's notes he'd wring his neck."
'Tou are engaged then?" inquired
the visitor, more gently.
"To the best man In the world," an
swered Miss Farrell, twirling a soli
taire upon her finger. "And for Joe's
sake and rerhaps for Bobby's girl
though she'd be well rid of' him, In
my opinion I'll do what I can."
"That's good of you."
"Will your husband take you to
the Imperlnl tomorrow night nt eleven
If you osk him?" Inquired tho actress.
"Of course he would. But what are
you going to do?"
"Fix Master Bobby. Will you be
"I will," nnswercd Mrs. Vnn Ley
den. It was In n frenzy of fear nnd agi
tation thnt Mrs. Van Lpydeii took her
place opposite her husbnnd nt the Im
perial supper table tho next evening.
Suddenly she started. Bobby was
coming In I
But wns this Bobby, who took a

It was Miss Furrell's mother.
And suddenly she understood.
"Say, Madge, I don't know what
your gome was. but It was the dullest
evening I ever spent," complained
Mrs. Farrell ns she got home, weary
nnd cro.ss, nt one o'clock. "I fooled
that young fellow all right anybody
could fool him. He thought I wns
you all nlong. But what's the game?"
"Oh, Just part of the week's work,
mo," answered bet daughter wearily.
Entering her sitting room one eve
ning recently n suburban resident be
held one of her window curtains
ablaze from having come In contact
with tho gas Jet. She called to the
cook to bring n dlsbpan of wnter In a
hurry, but that lady did not arrive on
tho scene until after the ninii of the
houso hnd rushed In, torn down the
curtain nnd stamped cut the ilame.
"Why didn't you hurry?" they nsked
tho cook, reproachfully, "Hurry?" she
repeated, "Wasn't I hurryln us fast
as I could? I had hot water In the

It was a baby, nestling under Ince
covers, that gave Barbara the Idea
though It was more than an Idea to the
lonely young woman, for It became
her constant longing. Barbara Walncol
bad so long known only the care of
others that sacrifice was a part of liei
life, so when the last Invalid, an aunt,
passed on to her rest leaving Barbara
quite alone with n simple legncy to
barely rover her needs well, the kind
ly young woman begun to look about
for another needy charge. The baby
In Its lacy nest typified a heretofore
unknown need of her own.
"Why not," she asked herself, her
soft cheeks glowing, "why not adopt a
baby and have something to love and
something to love me?" The thought
grow to fill Barbara's dreams. With
tho assistance of a friend Barbara
was able to And the little one of her
desire. The baby's mother had dice
at It's birth the father Just before
Barbara made arrangements for adop
tion, which had been the "sad mother's
wish. She named It Sylvia.
"Sylvia sounds so prettily romantic,"
she told the friend.
"I hope that my little girl will know
In life all those beautiful things which
I have been obliged to forego."
But all too promptly hud Barbara
put girlish dreams aside. Just as Syl
via was learning to .lisp the name
'Bab,' which was the nearest baby lips
could get to Barbaru, along came Bar
bara's delayed lover. Paul Strong pos
sessed qualities which made him
worthy to be Barbara's mate, but In
the friendship which followed his fall
ing became unpleasantly evident Paul
was unreasonably, persistently Jealous
and as the only occasion for Jealousy
must come through baby Sylvia, Paul
was Jealous of Sylvia.
An Imperious small ruler wns Paul
Strong's rival. And Barbara's tenner
heart was torn, her will hovering,, for
she had lenrned to love Paul, and he
would accept only undivided homage.
"Surely," she begged her lover, "you
would not ask me to give Sylvia up?
Why, dear, she loves me as she would
have loved n mother of her own.1'
"You are not that mother," Paul an
swered sharply, "and in a very short
time another could take your rlace In
the child's affections."
A pang crossed Barbara's heart. Yet
she knew that this little clinging thing
needed her guiding care, no other must
substitute. This, her charge, so griev
ing deeply, she sent Paul away.
The years went on. In her carefree
girlhood Sylvia flaunted more and
more her happy rule.
"Babs will do anything In the world
for me," she lovingly bonsted. Sylvia
had grown very lovely Barbara had
grown paler, thinner. Then Paul
Strong came back. Sylvia was the
first to see him as he came down the
"Sweetie," she addressed her foster
mother, "I saw a most distinguished
mnn turning In to the old Strong plnce
today. Why here be comes now."
Barbara looked to see her old lover.
Then, trembling a little, Barbara went
to open the door to him. She fancied
a flash of disappointment In bis eyes
us he looked nt her. Her own heart
was singing, "He has como back
During the following weeks Paul
was a constant visitor at Barbara's lit
"You Still love Sylvia better than
life?" Paul asked Barbara, but now
his tone was merely humorous.
"Eighteen years has not made mo
love her less," Barbara answered quiet
ly. Paul and Sylvle, walking one eve
ning in the moonlight, stopped to rest
on the porch steps. Barbara, seated
Just Inside the open window, know
whnt was coming, and she told herself
that she could not blame Paul, Sylvia
had grown Into such a lovely creature.
Sylvia, sweet and desirable, who
counted admirers by the score.
"How could one help but love you,
Paul dear?" said Sylvia, on the moon
lit porch. The man's response came
"I am old, child, old in years, with
an unruly heart still young to love."
Slowly Barbaru went up to her
child's room. She would wait to give
Sylvia her good-night kiss and Sylvia
must never know.
Coming gayly, Sylvia switched Bar
bara around to face the light.
"I thought so," she triumphed, "yon
do care for the dsllghtful Paul after
all. And I had to deliberately make
you Jealous In ordtr to be sure. Go
down and tell him so, sacrificing per
son, nnd make him happy after all
these years. Oh, i'aul has told me
of his undying love for you I refuse
to be a cruel barrli-r any longer. And
any way," added Oylvla, .smilingly, "I
