As h spoke. Richard Harvey un
locked tho door of his apartment. He
stood aside and curtsied grandly as his
wife entered the hallway. .v.; '

In a nervous way aha had. Bhe ran
childishly 'from room to room, delighted
anew with every fresh eridence of the
thoughfulnees of Richard, who . had
planned and prepared it for her.
"Why. lt'a ail wonderful, beautiful,
dearest!" aha exclaimed. - She stopped,
to throw her arm around the neck of
her husband, and tiptoed up to ktas him
on the cheek. "You're too good to me,"
she whispered, the tremble in her voloe
showing how near were the tears. - "Too
good! Ah, to think you havo brought
me away from It all from the children,
their everlasting worn out stockings,
and the buttons, and the old cracked
piano to this!" she swept her arms to
Include the beautiful home and the en
tire city. To this and to New Yorkl
The man smiled tenderly into ' the
flowerlike face upturned to bis own.
"But you haven t seen the music room
yet, madam e." he retorted gayly, and
threw open another door. ,
, There It was! The music room -of
Alice's longing girl dreams. ' A soft
light filtered through a stained-glass
window upon the polished surface of a
'mall grand piano. A wide bench stood
In front of It. Even the pink roses In
their cut-glass bowl, of which she had
.so ofttn talked to Richard as an inevi
table part of the picture, were not miss
ing; but he had placed candelabra with
ruddy-tinted shades upon a table to
take tha plaoa of the organ. Alice had
considered a pipe organ necessary, but '
had beea willing, to compromise on a
Shrine, provided It had the proper air
- of aesthetlo mysticism. On ths floor
by ths aide of ber harp stood a tall vase
yf American Beauties. Ah. Richard
knew! Not a rug covered the polished
floor, and not a pillow encumbered the
"listen chair," as Alice called tha wicker
armchair placed at the right angle be
tween the piano and tha undraped, soft
colored window. . .
Alice dropped on tha piano bench.
"Oh, Richard I" she sobbed happily.
"Oh, Richard I t Richard ! Then you do
believe In met You dol And you 11 help
me help me to be! It doea look selfish,
of me, after all this, doea It not? But,
dear, X must" Bhe flung herself In his
arras Impersonally, . perhaps as - aha
went on: "And you you're too- good
to me you're the epitome Of aU' good
ness and honor!"
Richard smiled vaguely. He had heard
himself spoksn Of differently in a varied
career. She continued: "After- all,
though, if I'm a success, Richard, dear,
it will be your success, too, in a way.
If I thought I could never be a great
singera really great one I'd rather
die right now than go on trying. You've
been my inspiration would It seem too
mean iz I said my opportunity? You've
encouraged me sol Ah, ibelp met Help
Richard beat solemnly slowly down
and kissed her fair hair.
"I will try to be a good wife to you,
Richard." Alice went on. rTll try to de
serve it all but how better can I do it
than by making you proud of met I
can alng I know it and I'U make all
the world know It. It'a the one thing
I ean do. I'm not domestic, and I detest
cooking and scrubbing and housekeep
ingeven this : kind of housekeeping.
Ira glad we ean have a housekeeper.
To be compelled to do all those things
at home came near making me even hate
the babies who were responsible and
there waa so much of It t do until
you came. dear. New Tork and fame
were far-off prospects those days."
Richard waa solemn. He looked at Ms
pretty young wife, sitting before the
open piano, running her fingers lightly
over Its keys. - The spell of the ceremony
in the dimly lighted church through
which he bad Just gone was strong upon
him. He bad hopes that It would ao
affect the little western girl who had
come to him that it might awaken the
womanly Instinct of which he so firmly
believed her to be possessed, but which
she had never yet shown him. Be had
hoped that she might forget her yearn
ings for fame,
.'. Alice, he said, "do you love mer
'. The solemnity of bis voice startled
her. It had not tha ring of a lover's
banter. It was real.
"Of course I do didn't I marry you f
he answered him. -
"Why did you do It?" '
"I might turn the Question on you,
Mr. Richard Harvey. Why did ,you?
Ton, who know the world so well who
could pick and choose T I waa only a
poor western provincial with an Im
mense amount of domaatle knowledge
acquired under protest and you didn't
need a cook Isdy."
"You're right ha said, slowly. - "I
have been about all over tha world.- I
might aay I have been surfeited with
all It has to offer. But I bad to find a
little western town where you were, be
loved, before I found how near heaven
our little terrestrial planet la'
- The hurt look in his eyes made her
elf -reproachful. .. Bhe flung, herself on
her knees beside blm.
- "Richard, dear, I didn't mean HI" aha
'errled. '"I want to be right with you
that s all." She smiled up at him
through ber. tears. "Have tou any
buttons to sew on ?" she asked - Rich
ard drew her close to him aa he spoke.
"I married you, aweetheart because
I loved you. I love you with a love
that's too sacred a thing for us even
to talk about. - I wanted you for my
wife. Do you . know what I mean,
sweetheart f' ....
"I am your wife,' answered the girl
"Have you forgotten what the preacher
with the tremolo tenor said only an
hour ago?" , .
Richard sighed. HS didn't admit to
himself the disappointment be felt. He
waa home-hungry. The world's buffet
ing had made . him long for a niche
where he could have his own posses
sions bis wife his home perhaps his
family. In Alloa Fields he believed he
had found hla Ideal. Truthfully, It
didn't make -much difference to him
whether aha waa or not. He knew he
loved her loved her with all the
Strength of a strong man whom the
world oould never detest He had told'
ber so, and she hsd come to him. He
shut his eyes tightly to ths fact that
she had talked and written more about
coming to New York than about com
ing to him. Bhe owned a voice of rare
beauty and to her - New York meant
irtunlty lor grasp
Its medium. It had been fame alone.
to which she had passionately yearned
in mi poor noma wnere ana naa
drudged her younger years away, car
ing for the wants of a motherleas brood
of brothers and sisters.
If Rlchsrd was conscious of his dls
appointment at her . lack of emotion
at the time which had been so sacred
holy to blm, -he ahowed nothing of
It to Alice. He would give her time.
She was young.
"There waa another reason I married
rou, too, dear," he stumbled on. "Not
he least reason. I believed 1 eould give
my little girl freedom from her life
of drudgery stld a chance for her am
bition. . I'll help you sweetheart." ;
"Ah, Richard! My Richard!" she
cried again, happily. "I'll succeed, too!"
I tell you I Willi , I'm ffotng to be great
great!.' - -i .
Klchard eould not complain of emo
tion now. She bowed her head In ber
arms, and her body, shook with sobs.
Then bhe looked up.
"We'll forget the buttons, won't we,
Richard? I'll sing for you. Won't that
do?" she asked. -
Ths man listened ' while her voice -thrilled
out It was an old favorite
of his she had chosen. He listened as

She sang on. ,
Richard Harvey walked mechanically
through the rooms he had prepared
for his wife's homecoming.-He smiled
over the work basket drawn up by the
side of a lw rocker; he laughed aloud
because it was filled with violets. An
incongruous little flowered - kimono

"You know you said you'd help me,
Riohard." aha said to him one day when
he begged her to so for a drive through
the perk with him. Spring was in the
air and ha had brought home to her a
bunch of violets. He had never before
known a woman who eould resist .the
combination of violets and spring. ' "I
must practice thla glorioua afternoon

"One spring mprnlng, bright and

Richard ' compromised bv taking ths
Prodigal out for a drive. The Prodigal,
-a ferocloua young bull terrier, had be
lled his name since his master's mar
riage. The dog was - constantly with'
Richard, lying at hla feet in ths lone-
soms evening hours, In way he had
scorned during the days of hla master's
celibacy, Alice heartily disliked the
Prodigal ' . .. - .
"He thoroughly spoiled "Robert tol
sue J'alme'.for me the other day," she
complained. "Howled! And Just, as I
had It rlght'tool" .
When the day a grew too beautiful to
stay much indoors, the man would walk
uptown from hla business place. Often
he stopped in front of toy shop win
dows, gaslng long. Interestedly into their
depths. Once he walked inside a ehop.
The obsequious floorwalker came up to

and had bought-one. He felt ashamed
to let Alice know, so - had hidden the
toy on one of the top kitchen shelves
sure that she wouldn't find It there.
After that it had been sn easy matter
to purchase- others for the Prodigal, i
With it all. though, it was not until
Alice began absenting herself from
horn often that. Richard began futllely
to fumble within himself for a reason.',
He had in a way been content to know
aha was near him when she waa with
her beloved muaic. But later ahe had
begun to go out to the opera,' to
musical gatherings with friends of bar ,
own choosing. - 5 '
"Go ahead, dear," he had told her at
first. "I lovo the music all rlKht. but
you know I'm too much of a duffer to
Understand the companionship."
And so the chasm had widened. Im
perceptibly at first, but then to a width"
that had made even Alice's . absorbed
conscience aaserf Itself. Bhe had come
home late, very late, one night and had
found Richard aaleep - on his Morris
chair, the Prodigal on guard at his feet.
The eloquence of tha man's lonely even
ing struck her. - . .- - . . . , - -
"Poor old Richard!" ahe . whispered
with a pang. "It isn't fair to him. He's
too good to ma. I selfish, selfish as I
am I don't deserve him., I'll tell him
so tomorrow' t
At an unusual meeting 'at the break
fast table (Richard usually. had his
morning meal hours before Alice arose) 1
Alice was painfully full of , ths strength'
of her purpose.
. "Riohard, ens began slowly. '1 must "
tell you something snd Won't you be
lieve me when I tell you that I hope
It won't hnrt you that you won't xsare?
I have come to a decision. I I am
going away. Richard; I'm going to try
io let you be as you were before before
came. I should never have married
you I wish I hsd not." ,,
"Alice!" ' The man started up, but
could only fall back helplessly. "Alice!"
nt Isn't fair to you," she went on.
"I can't stsy at home and do as you
want ms to do as I ought to do. I'm
not the sort to make you happy. It's
better ss I say. I'm going away."
The silent pain in his face mads her
turn away. ...
"You said,; when you made me marry ;
you. that you would be satlaf led with -my
companionship but I can't give you
that. Don't you see I can't? .You want
a woman who could be your companion
and wife, as I never can. You need a
big, strong, motherly . housewife . who
loves to cook and. sew and take" care
of the babies. On, It's all very beautiful
and proper,-and all to talk about. I
know, but ypu should not have let me
marry you you should have known.
Probably you think me cruel now, but
I can't help it I can't! I can t! Put
all ths blame on me, I want itl
The man towered above her. .. !
"Alloa, be quiet," he commanded.
"You know bow I love you, even while
you're hurting me you know you are tho
one, the only woman in thla whole wide '
world for ma, and you shall not
leave ma" .
She bowed her head.. It was ths first
time be had so spoken to her.
"But I'm no wife for you, Richard,"
she faltered. "I can't oer -
"Yon can be If you wilL - Try,"hs
added In softer tons. -
. Her sincere attempts to be -what she
believed the man wanted her to be
touched Richard. He came home night
ly to a place that waa no longer the,
bachelor nuarterS It had become In a
year. The work banket was emptied of
magazines. Hla personal comfort was
considered.- The state of his clothing
Improved. He found buttons instead of
gapa. He found neatly brushed clothes.
Alios would not touch ths piano at
Bight, declaring she preferred to play
cards with him! Before that, he had
found companionship merely In knowing
that the aame roof covered them both.
Despite an. assumed gaiety, though, the
man could sse that her submission wss
heartbreaking that she longed with all
the Intensity of her artlatlo soul to be
free from the sordldness of It all
the banality. . - .- .

out . somewhere. He groped through
the dark to find - the electrle switch.
Passing an open window, he leaned out
over a bed of lavender her hand had
planted there. He sniffed Its fragrance,
"Dear little girl,? he murmured. The
brilliance of the electrlo lights accen
tuated the loneliness of the place. Ha
wished that Alice would come home. ' A
ring at the door startled him. . A mes
senger brought him a note. ' , . .

The man groped for the meaning of

on and on how far he never stopped
to reckon. -Suddenly he threw baok his
head and laughed, He had pad aa Idea
that Alice had left him. Ridiculous

Mechanically Richard listened to their

"Nothing, nothing." hastily replied
Richard, drawing ths back of his hand

Richard knew. ' - - ."'
Out Into the night he went again.
Stumbling on to his deserted home. Tha
Prodigal fawned a welcome on ths men,
but he put the dog from him. He
dragged tha train of ears from its hid
ing place and arranged It on a track on'
the dining room table. Then he sat'
down In front of It and placed ths Prodigal's-

His hand fell to his side. He felt the
