Her mother stirred herself. flow

Suddenly curiosity caught her

it. You got to make It. It's mak-
ing money that gives proof, which
the wife can’t match, of his greater
ability and attractions."
"Attractions!” Beatrice Glenelth re-
peated, and Cathal caught a twitch-
like wince, so tie said quickly:
"I.orrle knew better—but they nil
do. Me knew It was his money, not
him, that Myrtle had to have. She
married him for It.
"And she could have got away with
it, and so could he, and been satis-
fied, If he hadn't been happy In his
marriage before. It was that which
proved the death of him—that once
he’d been happy!"
"How?” breathed Beatrice.
Cathal confronted her. "Have you
not known happiness?” he said boldly,
and waited for no answer. “Then how,
having bought her with money, could
he have with her the full of It?
“She sold herself body and soul to
him, did Myrtle, whom your daugh-
ter walked In on. Mrs. Glenelth. She
tried to deliver her soul as well ns
her body to him; but the soul wouldn’t
deliver. Something secs to that."
He stopped, and Beatrice Glenelth
remained standing, waiting for him.
"But Charles I.orrle would have soul
as well ns body, having paid for It.
Poor os her soul was, he would have
It. Once he had a wife, body and
soul, you see; so he was spoiled for
less. And then there was Bert. So
he began to heat up his young wife
Myrtle. A trifle before two o'clock
on that day, when later your daugh-
ter had the 111 hick to he looking
about the building with Mr. Braddon,
Charles I.orrle went too far. . . .
There were certain bruises and con-
tusions on Myrtle which your daugh-
ter, placed os she was with Myrtle,
could not have failed to see. So I
must make sure of the manner of her
memory of them, and some other
Items of evidence.”
Agnes told him: "The morning aft-
er the—after we were In that apart-
ment, and I read the newspapers here,
I wrote down everything thnt I knew
I’d done. The papers printed some
things I didn’t see and didn’t do. And
they didn’t agree with each other."
"No,” said Cathal. "Have you what

be right hack.”
In her room she bent before her
desk, and pulled out the drawer con-
taining her own intimate, sentimen-
She remembered now, when she had
started to tuck in with this medley the
record of her meeting with Myrtle
I.orrle, she had stopped, restrained by
the feeling that this memorandum was
utterly alien and contaminating to the
other contents of the drawer. But she
had no safer repository; and so she
had thrust It under the other things.
She withdrew It with no such ex-
aggerated offense at Its utter strange
ness. Myrtle. Into whose life Agnes
Glenelth had stumbled, was no woman
apart. This evening, In New York,

And then he would turn to some oth

“I don’t know Glen; and neither do
you. And I don’t care—nor do you —

But she did care.
She shifted In the drawer one of
Job’s Impetuous, exciting letters; and
she touched for an Instant, and al
most with a caress, the envelope which
Bod hnd addressed to her; and her
mind clung to Its quieter yet strange
|y stirring contents.
She closed the drawer and took
downstairs the paper which preserved
her Impressions of that apartment
wherein Myrtle had seized upon her
Cathal arose to receive from Agnes
the paper she had brought him; and
lie remained standing In the center
of the room ns he rend.
Agnes hnd dated the paper, and at
the top had written why she was re-
cording, at that time, exactly whu'
she hnd seen and heard and done; an 1
why she hnd done what she had.
Cathal could catch Its Importance
to Ills client and at the same time
look through this writing deep Into
the revelation of the nature of the
girl who was watching him read How
Impossible to dissemble when one
writes upon n page!
Cathal had not seen Agnes’ writ
ing before; and he looked up from
this page she had written, nnd real
ized as he had uot, her naivete.
