thing, dear. I was beginning to think
that life had played me an ulj trlvk.
I was beginning to doubt and ques
tion wlint was real and true, I was
ready to throw It all away because
of a pride that would not let me take
from another man. And then I was
made ashamed when they gave me
you. When I found that out I learned
how to be grateful and humble. I
knew that one gift was but the prep

She laid her fan against her lips

laushed at him again, letting her eo-l

point where the world was at your

than dancing In that hot room. Or
do all young men feel like that when

Hut she had gone too far. He
suddenly freed her hands and leaned
back studying her white fare frosa

out revealing Its f;ilsity She shiv

"I cannot hellexe ymi," he said.
"You could not have tlmnged In a
day to this."
She made a gesture of weariness
"What? That I am not an Idealist?'
Some of her pain found Its wny to her
tired voice. "After all. what do you
know of me? What right have you to
choose for me?"
The right of love," he said stub
bornly, and then he told her what
the had known all along she would
hear. AM about his s.vlft love for her
and the wonder she was to him and
the dreams he had had for them both.
All the foolery that men believe when
they speak It to the one woman and

had to shut her eyes tightly to hide
her tears and her Hps more tightly
still to keep from saying that she be

like any other woman. That was
what she had meant to say a few
hours agi but not now!
"Well, then" she cried desperate
ly, for she was nearly to the end.
"what must I say that you amused
me for a little while and thai It Is
all over? I cannot laugh at you any
longer. It Is all too ubsurd. Because
I have been kind to you. Try to see
how ridiculous it Is. Could you give
me anything like this?" She lifted
the pearls and held them before him.
For so long they had been a part of
her play that the gesture came nat
