of animals and persons and de

lady's" yo'lce' held a note of dis
appointment. ' " -
VShe didn't tell ns. mother, be
cause she- didn't dare. A short
while ago less than two months
-"she became -involved in a ais
gracefal ' scandal in Hollywood,
md her picture, together with a
full account of the matter, was
published in the newspapers. You
remember I wopdered.r that first
night, why her hair was dyed.
Now I know. She was afraid "she
would be recognised." Of course" we
cannot permit Steve ft marry
her." '
"Are you snre about all this,
Julia." Mrs. Hollins quaverd.'
"Steve loves her very deeply. It
will break his heart. I must con
fess, tiat she does not seem to me
like a bad woman."
V "She's clever, mother. Here's
the story you can read it for
yourself. But we must not tell
Steve. He need not know anything
about it until later. My plan is
to get rid of this girl alone, give
her to understand that we know
all about her, and force her to
break' off the engagement. She
can do so by letter, without giv
fpg Steve auy reasons, and taen
disappear. Of course, if she re
fuses, Steve will have to know.
He is bound to be terribly hurt,
of course. It appears that the crea
ture was engaged to marry a rich
young fellow in her home town,
named Howard Bennett, but when
the scandal about ber became pub
lic he gave lie up., Think of it
trying to inveigle one-man into a
marriage a 'month ago- pretend
ing to be in love with another one
now! The whole thing Is nauseat
ing. Here read this." She thrust
on the newspapers into her moth
er's trembling hands. "When
you've finished we'll decide what
is best to be done."
For many dismal minutes Mrs.
Hollins strained her eyes over-th
small print, with? Julia, a rigid
figure in black, watching her
grimly. When the old lady 'iad
finished she sank back in her
chairwith a plaintive sigh.
"Poor Steve," sbe whispered.
"My poor boy." Tlfere were sud
den tears on her withered c'jeeks.
"Well." said Julia, taking the
paper from her, "don't you think
my plan i the be"st?"
" "I don't know. It all seems so
impossible. Just when I had grown
to like her so much. Julia it
simply CAN'T be true."

Without waiting, for a reply
Miss Hollins hurried from the
room. She had just reached the
landing at the top of the stajif,
when Sylvia and Steve came in
They had driven the sleigh dowt

"Hello, mother," the latter ca!

"Julia Is back," the "dd lady
"That so?" Steve frowned ever
so slightly, and pressed Sylvia's
hand. His sister's presence, he
knew, would make the confession
before them far more difficult:
"Hope she had a good time." He
turned to the girl beside him, gave
her a quick and reassuring kiss;
"Run along up and change, dear,"
he whispered. "It takds you long-
