'TH ten you in ten yean or so,
when you're quite reedy, tend me a
telegram. Ti like to know about It
But honestly, darling, do I have to
wait very long? I've already
marked time for nearly six months,
"Oh tush, it hasn't been six
month! since you dashed down to
Roekboro to snatch me from Bob
"But I've known you six months
and been in love with you all the
"Have you really, CurtT"
"The first day you came into Vln
eo's with that strange fellow who
was he, by the wayT You've never
"Oh, he's named Oliver Land and
Z met him at the Steeles and he
told me about Vinco's and took me
there,' Even now while she was so
happy,, there was a little sharp spot
when she remembered Oliver, not of
regret but of anger.
Curt seemed to find Oliver sum
ciently explained. He returned to
more Important matters. "But
when are we going to get married,
that what I want to know? D'you
think your mother will object to
"No, I don't believe she wilt Dar
ling Anne, she's the most wonder
ful, the grandest she didn't want
me to marry Bob Eddis, Curt."
"That rates her a million per
cent with me. But I haven't got
much to offer you, Rachel. I'll nev
er be rich or distinguished or even
notorious. How about sending your
mother a nice long cable, sort of
breaking the subject gently?"
"I might do that. 1 wonder
what's your mother going to say?"
"That woman's been abusing me
something shameful tor being so
alow. She said that you sounded
exactly like the kind of girl she al
ways wanted me to marry and if
I dldnt propose to you pretty soon
she'd come and do it for me. By
the way, what kind of on engage
ment ring would you like best? I
can get mat on you even if you
won't be married for an eon or two.
Would you like an emerald, or a
"Anything but a sapphire," said
Rachel. And Curt," she went on,
"let's be honest with each other,
don't let's have any secrets or eva
sions or hidden feelings. They're
bad for any kind of love. There
are some things I must tell you
about myself and Anne nothing
that matters specially. I want you
to know. And after that no more.
While you were telling me about
your mother I wanted to tell you
It was a long time before the
story of Anne Vincent and Elinor
Cayne was done. Curt asked many
questions. Rachel must tell all that
had happened and what it had done
to her. At the end she asked him,
with terrible earnestness: "Was It
wrong not to tell Elinor? Hadn't I
the right to choose, then, who was
my mother? Because I knew it was
Anne, it must be Anne, everything
turned me back to Anne, even not
letting Elinor know was what Anne
would have wanted, I'm sure of
that And yet, It troubles me, to
have been so near Elinor and not
said a word."
"Darling, look at the facts. No
earthly good could have some from
telling her you were her child even
if she'd have believed it, which I
greatly doubt It would only have
stirred everything up into a far
worse mess than it wasand it was
sad enough. And you ought to forget
the whole thing. I doa't mink you
ought to tell Anne that you ever
went sear Elinor."
"That's another thing I wonder
about Curt, and hate myself for
having been the one to find out
about the thief and letting Mr.
Cayne know. I went there to that
house longing to see my own moth
er, thinking rd find something I'd
missed and all I did was to bring
a lot of trouble on her and on her
"But Rachel, you didn't bring it
on her, she brought it on berselt
Grant that you were the instrument
an instrument was inevitable.
Sooner or later Mr. Cayne would
have found the thing out You didn't
make her a vain and selfish wom
an, you didn't make her hate her
husband, you didn't make her steal.
Be sorry for her if you want but
don't be maudlin and reproach
yourself for what she is, or what
she's done. She's your mother only
because she brought you into the
world. But Anne's your real moth
er." "Anne said, when she told me,
that motherhood can be nothing but
a physical act"
"Anne was telling the truth. And
you ought to forget the whole thing.
I don't think you ought to tell Anne
that you ever went near Elinor."
"No, I certainly don't If 11 only
be painful for both of you and then.
when she gets to thinking it over.
she might feel that she could never
count ou you again, that there was
some want, some deficiency in your
love for her. It might trouble her
beyond anything you can Imagine." -Rachel
slipped her arm through
dirt's arm as they walked along.
"There's a Postal Telegraph on Fif-
ty-second street," she said, "and
that's only two blocks down."
Curt hung over her shoulder as

Rachel in chorus.
The little man glanced at the two
