fumbled with the sheets. Then on
page three of the paper, he found
what he wanted.
"Look at that!"
Under a big heading of "Honey
moon Couple Sail for Europe," was
a smiling, handsome picture
three columns wide of Henry and
his bride, the lovely Virginia Ran
dolph! "The double-crossing cad!"
breathed Julie, as white as a sheet.
Her eyes stared at the hateful pic

her clenched fist into the radiant,
smiling face of the young bride

Ignoring that, her green eyes
baleful as a jungle tigress, she
started a diatribe on Henry. "He

easily have been a ring! We were

It was one of the shabbiest tricks a
man could play on a trusting girl.
She'd never get over it!
Julie's perturbance was so great
over Henry's sudden secret mar
riage that Willie's sympathy
mounted. He ordered a stiff brandy
for her and himself and another
"What on earth will people say?
It'sTVfle of him. ;I loathe him!" de
clared Julie, her eyes narrowed to
pin-points.; "And to top the whole
outrage, Mr. Krass, this shock has
to come to me on my birthday."
"Today your birthday?"
She nodded resentfully. "We al
ways spent it together. Last year
he gave me this diamond bracelet."
"Then won't you let me?" be
gan Willie eagerly. The brandy had
mounted in his head. He felt a
great wave of generosity. After
all, what was money for when a
beautiful girl was around, but to
make her happy? "Miss Julie, let's
have another little drink, and then
what say we go around to the
jeweler's ? "
The resentment and the gloom on
her face lifted a little. She touched
Willie's hand for a second. She
said: "You're not a bad soul."

"I'm a rough fellow from the
West, without much of what they
call culture, but I'm darned if I'd
play a dirty trick like this on a
girl!" Willie waxed eloquent. Come
to think of it. Henry need not have
kept him in ignorance of the wed
ding! He was a dark horse. He
would keep a sharper eye on Van
Tyle in. business.
Both pepped up by the brandy,
Julie led the willing Willie round to
the Fifth Avenue jeweler's. If the
man was a fool about her, let him
pay for it heavily!
A valuable marquise diamond
ring on the third finger of her
right hand, and a pin of gleaming
emeralds in the lace collar of her
dress, Julie and Willie taxied from
the jeweler's to her apartment.
Over her telephone he ordered a
case of Champagne to be sent in,
and 'phoned a florist for orchids.
Now get into your best gown,
and we'll go out and dance. We'll
Thought Julie bitterly; "With
him? After Henry! And have
everyone in town laughing at us."
She said aloud: "It's sweet of
you, dear, to be so wonderful to me.
Suppose you hire a car and we
drive to some quiet inn up West

anybody ? You understand the way
I feel the shock of it all "
He did. The rough diamond had
a kind heart.
He let Julie talk of her disap
pointment all the way out, assur
ing her that no one would ever hear
the story from his lips. The exag
gerated jumble of accusations
against Henry the figurative ink
she slung over him had its effect.
"I I gave myself to him ut

drown her disappointment for the
past several hours in champagne,
Willie got out with her at her
apartment, dismissing the chauf

mess her financial affairs were in.
Now she spoke more openly,
