Whether It waa that I longed for the
companionship of one who spoke a
common language or because there
was something Tery much alive with
my fellow trareler I don't know, but I
enjoyed hla company so well that I
was In no hurry te part with him.

The result of the meeting waa that

with him that I chose the same hos

him that I would make tnnr of lre

It waa oa such an occasion that 1
first saw a lady whose face at once
Interested me. I waa young, and
youug mea are very sensible to beauty.
This girl waa not ao especially beauti
ful as striking. Her eyes and eye
browa were a dark brown, while her
hair waa a chestnut with a tinge of
red In It. It waa thla contrast that at
tracted me.
Now, I am quite willing to confess
that under other circumstances I
might simply have admired the art Is

eyea and Titian hair without having
given the girl another thought But,

rather, free, to be moved by any Influ

snowstorm and were bow oa the boa

stream. Though we needed our wraps,
there waa pleasant softness la the
air In marked contrast with the win
ter wa had left Not only did I feel a
delightful relaxation, but I waa not
troubled with a multiplicity of things
to look at. I saw only the sky, the
ocean and the ship, and on the ship
I looked only at the young girl who
charmed me.
As luck -would have it a friend of
mine who waa aboard atepped up to
the young lady sad spoke to her. I
waa delighted. An Introduction was
assured to me. Within an hour I wa
sitting beside Miss Manning, chatting
with her.
We were making the Mediterranean
trip and. since we bad been out only
two days, ten or eleven days remained
to me to enjoy Mlaa Manning's society
How Impressionable la a youngster of
twenty-fire, especially on who baa
nothing to do but be impressed! I con
fess that I had do right to be im
pressed, for I waa engaged to a very
lovely woman. The trouble with me
was aa artistic temperament I had
been caught by a peculiar condition
of beauty. I did not find Miss Man
ning especially Intellectual, especially
entertaining, but ever before me was
that singular combination of. features.
I did not at first realize the danger for
me. an engaged man, to put myself
under the influence of another woman.

which appealed alone to an abnormal
sense for beauty. Before we reached
the Aaores I began to fear for myself.

I had written something dally to my
fiancee to post from our first landing
point, but somehow I could not drop
it In the purser's box to be mailed. I
glanced orer what I had written, and
so completely had I passed under a
new spell that I wondered bow I could
erer hare been under any other. I
tore my letter into Uts. From Ma
deira to Gibraltar I was in an a cony
between a sense of honor, shame and
self condemnation on the one band and
Infatuation on the other. From Glbral
tar to Naples I sank Into absolute non
resistance and self contempt.

not call It lore to Miss Manning, for
I could not bring myself to act so con
temptibly while I waa still betrothed
to another. I hoped the conditions
might be changed before our next
meetlDg. though what waa to change
them except some dishonorable act on
my part I did not know.
I had not been separated from my
fellow trareler a week before the
chains that bound me to her began to
drop off of their own weight Then It
first occurred to me that I bad been
captivated by a peculiar beauty. I
saw so many different types of beauty
in the galleries of Italy that I suppose
I became surfeited. Still. I could not
call up the Image of Miss Manning
without backsliding.
Three months passed, and I Joined

The fact must be admitted that
America's athletes must be superior to
