excellent idea. Not that she was
hungry, the mental distress under
which she was laboring: bad quite
destroyed her appetite. But she
was afraid to be ,wijh Seve for
very? long, alone. Bhe had feared,
on meeting him,: that his first
question would be the one she had
left ;uriaaawered the, night before
-wpuld she marry him? 'At ta
ble, conversation of so intimate a
nature was , .impossible. She
dragged ront the meal as long as
she could," despising herself for
her -indecision, yet utterly unable
to overcome . it. -, The presence,
the physical nearness of this man
she loved left her even more ' at

feelings ; toward him, so certain
that j her love was, like his, the
greatest, th'ng of their lives, that
he did. not refer to their marriage
at all. His complete faith .in her
made Sylvia's position an even

-quite confident of what Aer an

was dreadful to her; . Sylvia tried
to hide her agitation beneath a
fipw of chatter.
"I wish we were beginning our
trip all over again," she told him.

Some day I hope to go to Europe.
Isn't that the Statue of Liberty?"
She pointed through the fog.
"Nothing else but. We'll be at

him. "Perhaps I'd better run

to think to, decide that was the
main thing, now.

Even of his, love she dared not
ask too much. s
The details of going ashore, of
finding a axicab, of driving
through the slushy, muddy streets
all passed through Sylvia's mind
like the scenes of some strange
and unusual dream. 'When Steve
suggested that before having
lunch she better leave her bag
gage at the hotel, she started
guiltily- -Was it necessary for her
to g to a hotel? Her original
intention had been to leave for
Millersburg. at once, on an after
noon train, but it was clear that
Steve had no such thought in mind
"You'll be staying In town for
a few days anyway," he said, with
an air of proprietorship, as though
the matter, had already been dis
cussed, settled. "I want you to
meet mdther, my . sisters, of
course. , Where do you intend to
Sylvia didn't know, and said so.
Her acquaintance with New York
hotels was extremely, limited.
"I've got to leave my stuff at
the Long Island station," Steve
went on. "There's an excellent
hotel access the street. Why not
try that and save time?"
Sylvia nodded. One hotel was
as good as another, in her present
frame of mind. ,' f
"All right. Anywhere. I'll be
here such a short time anyway, it
really doesn't matter." .
"Don't make it too short,
sweetheart," Steve whispered. "I
don't see how I'm ever going to
let you go, now that I've got you.
You'll wan to meet my family, of
course, and they'll insist on hav
ing you down for a visit, so you
might as well figure on a week,
anyway. How about it?"
Sylvia gripped her gloved hands
tightly and said nothing. After
all what was there to say? Steve
Hollins, in spite of his whimsical,
carefree attitude toward life, was,
she discovered, rather inclined to
be masterful at times. It was a
quality in him that she adored of
course, even though it threatened
in the present instance, to sweep
her into an utterly impossible po
sition. Mrs. Hollins might insist
on having her down for a visit,
but Sylvia had no intention of go
ing. The thought terrified her,
with its possibility of recognition
at any moment.
When she finally entered the
lobby of the hotel, went to the
desk to register, Steve was still at
her side. Her thoughts went back
to the day of her arrival in New
Orleans. She had inscribed her
self, on that occasion, as Mary Mc-
Kenna, of New York. Her first
impulse had been to write "Holly
wood" after her name, as she had
always done, since making that
place her home. Then, fear of
recognition mastering her she had
written simply her place of desti
nation, New York, huge, impene
trable, meaningless, if one wish
ed to remain unnoticed. Should
she do the same now? If she did.
Steve would no doubt think It
queer that she had not set down
the name of her home town a
name which up to now, she had
carefully kept from him.
