    " When a Girl "

A New, Romantic Serial Dealing With the Absorbing
Problems of a Girl Wife
(Copyright, 1919. King Features

Valerie Ccsby gilded noiselessly
dfwn tho corridor and stopped at
last at a door which she opened si
lently. Then she turned with her
finger on her lips,
"Thle Is my room," Bhe whis
pered. "I came up to rest—l was
feeling—a little done up. I thought
I'd get a breath of air, so I stepped
out on this balcony. Come with
me," and, seizing my arm, she drew
me out after her. "And I found
that it wasn't a mere balcony from
my window, but a long gallery that
runs around the house."
With her hand on my wrist, Val
pulled me down the gallery after
her. At the end there was a sum
mer house of two decks, built right
into the gallery, with stairs lead
ing down from the upper to the
lower floor.
"Hush!" whispered Val. "I
brought you here to see the tttcks
that little Mason is playing with
your young brother. I thought you
ought to know," she added, virtu
ously, but in the moonlight I could
see her eyes flash as they had when
she turned from Mrs. Stoughton to
Evvy an hour before.
"My brother?" I questioned
vaguely. "Why, I thought he's
Then I stopped. There was no
earthly reason why Val should know
of Neal's packed sulicase nor yet
of my hope that he had gone back
to Phoebe.
"He was hurrying down the path
when I came out. X 6aw Evvy Ma
son run down from the upper bal
cony here and drag him into the
summer house down below. They're
probably there now."
At that I started toward the lad
der-like stairway leading from one
floor of the summer house to the
other. What I intended to. do if I
found Evvy and Neal together I
didn't know. Nor was there any
reason why they shouldn't be to

gether. But I felt that Xeal need
ed me—and I knew that Phoebe
had never needed me more. I was
going to fight for her happiness,
even if I made an abject fool of my
seit in doing it. Valerie caught my
shoulder in her puffy white hands.
"Hush! They'll hear you," she
warned spitefully.
"Hear me?" I echoed impatiently.
"They'ie welcome. I'm no spy."*
At that a voice called:
"Who's up on the balcony?"
"It's Anne, Evvy," 1 replied to her
in breathless, husky syllables. "Mrs.
Cosby and I came up to our rooms
—to freshen up a bit. And here we
are taking the air."
"Come down—both of you—and
hear the news," commanded Evvy
with much sweetness.
My heart contracted and my hands
got cold. But I started down the
steps. As I went I caught Val's
mocking eyes. They said as planly
as words: "We've muffed it! We're
too late."
• In a moment I reached the ground
floor of the little summer house. 1
noticed the faint, musty smell of
old wood even before 1 saw Evvy
standing close to Xeal with her head
on his heart and his arms awkward
ly around her. She ran from him
to me and caught my hands in hers.
"Oh, Anne!" she cried. "Anne —
you tell her, Xeal."
Xeal looked up and beyond me to
the stairs, where I perceived Val
standing, a tall white figure in the
ny>onlight. And then he spoke in a
stilted voice that didn't sound at all
like his boyish, slangy self:
"Evvy has just done me the honor
to say she'll—marry me."
I tightened my hands over Evvy's,
but I couldn't make a single word
come from my dry throat. Xeal
hadn't wanted this—l knew he
hadn't. Wasn't his suitcase packed?
Hadn't he been all ready to run
away—to Phoebe? I started to
shake Evvy's clinging hands off and
to demand an explanation of how
she had dragged him to the summer
house and forced a proposal from
him. Even with Valerie Cosby
there to witness the humiliation and
cheapness of it all. I was ready to
make a scene. But Evvy forestalled '

ling boy!" she cried, looking up in
wide-eyed simplicity at Val. "Packed
and ready to go. I saw him tip
toe into my room with a note and
then climb down here to get out the
side entrance. And I followed him.
You know it was my fault the ca
noe upset to-day, but he risked his
life to save me. Then, like the
modest dear he is, he didn't want me
to think I owed it to him to marry
him after he'd saved me. I'm older
than Xeal—and richer—in experi
ence and—having this place: but no
one —XO OXE —can ever call Xeal
a fortune hunter, because I'm the
lucky one. He was running away
and I made him stay."
For a moment I was so astounded
I couldn't breathe to speak.
"You're very wonderful," com
mented Val dryly. "I congratulate
you both. And I'm sure. Miss Ma
son, that no one will ever dream of
calling Mr. Hyland a fortune
As she spoke a look flashed be
tween them. I knew Evvy wasn't
done with Val.
"Thank you for explaining to us,
I Evvy," I said, pulling myself to
j gether. "Your defense of Neal Is —
I kind. But you won't have to make

Then I kissed her on the lips she
turned up to me, and I caught Neal
; in my arms, murmuring over him
1 with lips that longed to protest.
"I'm going in to tell them all
' now," cried Evvy after a moment or
I two. "I want them all to know
j how happy we are. We are happy,
j aren't we, dearest?"
Neal stooped and drew Evvy to-
I ward him. Then he looked almost
defiantly at Val and me.
"Very happy," he said.
"And to think I had to stop my
proud darling almost by force from
running away from me," laughed
Evvy huskily.
Neal's eyes caught mine and held
them for a second. He was giving
me a command —of that I felt sure.
But for the first time in my life
I didn't understand Neal. I couldn't
get the message he was frying to
send me.

(Copyright, 1919, Star Company)
Mrs. Dufficld foimea the fourth
member of the party at the supper
table at the Leightons' on buuday
Miss Bristol, always loquacious,
talked a great deal aooul the old
friend at whose house she had fiist
met Desiree.
"I miss dear Miss DeLaine sadly,"
she remarked. "My dear, I wonder
if you have any idea now much she
loved you?"
"She was very good to me," De
siree admitted, "and I was l'ond of
"She had so few people to love,"
Miss Bristol continued. "Her brother
David—the father of the nephew
she was so devoted to —died years
ago, you know. There was another
brother—but he was a queer person,
and she did not hear from him for a
good while before her death."
"I did not know she had another
brother," Desiree said.
"No? Well she s.eldom mentioned
him. It seems that when her father
died he left a handsome fortune
to his three children. The younger
brother, David, spent his lavishly,
made foolish investments, and died
poor, leaving nothing for his only
child —young David.
"The other brother, Francis, went
out West with his money and be
came interested in some mining en
terprise and grew very rich. At
least he was wealthy when Miss
Jeanne last heard of him. But he
was a recluse, and, I fancy, a miser.
I do not even know if he is alive
now. Miss Jeanne invested her for
tune wisely. I suppose David is her
heir, and, strange to say, I met the
lad at church here In New York
this morning."
"Indeed!" Desiree ejaculated. "We
heard he was in France."
"He is—l mean," with a laugh,
"he sails to-morrow. He has been
over here, perhaps on business con
nected with his aunt's property."
Mr. Leighton smiled, raising his
brows skeptically.
I "He claims —does he?—that the
' government would allow him to re
: turn to this country on private
j business," he remarked, sareastic
| ally. "If he told you that he was
dVawing a long bow."
"Oh, no, he did not tell me just
that," Miss Bristol hastened to ex
plain. "I only inferred it. He sure
ly said he was sailing at once for
France, and I took it for granted
that he had come here on business.
Perhaps he may not even have been
across the ocean yeg But I have
an idea that his aunt told me he
had gone."
"She may have been mistaken,"
Mrs. Duffleld ventured.
Desiree remembered that Miss
Bristol's memory was not the best
In the world, and that Miss DeLaine
had remarked with affectionate
amusement on "Mary Bristol's abil
ity for getting things mixed up." So
the girl smiled indulgently now at
her guest's statements.
"What branch of the service is
young DeLaine in?" Mr. Leighton
"I do not know. I declare I never
even noticed what kind of a uni
form he had on this morning when
I met him. lam most unobservent.
But I think his clothes were of
some dark blue material."
"Then he is In the navy," Mr.
Leighton hazarded.
"But I am sure it was not one
of those regular sailor-suits that
he wore. There was no white braid
about it—or I would have noticed
that. And I think his things fitted
"Probably he has his commission
by now and wears an officer's uni
form." the host suggested. "That
would account for his being in New
York —I mean his being in the navy
would account for it. He may be
on a transport which is in New
York, and he may have a few days
on shore. He sails to-morrow, you
••Yes—l think that is what he
said. Y'ou never met him, my dear,
did you?" Miss Bristol questioned,
turrning to Desiree.
"No, I never did."
"So he said," the spinster in
formed her.
Desiree flushed. "How did he
happen to mention that fact to you?"
she demanded.
"Oh, in the course of our conver
sation I remarked that I was com
ing here to-night and reminded hin.
that you had been a favorite of his
aunt's. He said he had never* called
on you when you were in Balti
"No —nor when he h;is been
here," Desiree supplemented stiffly.
"I am not parttcuftirly anxious to
meet him —certainly not anxious
enough ever to suggest his coming
to my house."
Here Mrs. Duffleld hastily intro
duced another topic of conversa
tion. She feared that Desiree
might make some remark that was
derogatory to a young man whom
Miss Bristol evidently liked.
After supper, when her guests had
gone Into the drawing room, Deklree
slipped out into the hall for a word
alone with her father.
"Dad," she said, "you really
should give Smith a few points in
manners. I was surprised at the way
he behaved this evening. I saw
him myself get into the car and sit
there while Norah opened the door
and helped Miss Bristol out and
then brought her up the front steps
into the house."
"That's strange!" Mr. Leighton
commented. "I always thought
Smith's manners were exceptionally
"So did I. But they were bad to
night. He came here, rang the bell
for Norah—then caught her by the
arm and ran down the steps with
"He may have wanted a chance
for a chat with your pretty maid,"
Leighton opined. "Most chauffeurs
flirt with the maids, I suppose."
Desiree frowned. "I will not al
low it!" she declared.
Her father looked surprised.
"Don't get excited over a trifle,
my dear. I will explain to Smith
what hfe duties are—or you can
do so."
"One of us must,* the girl in
sisted. "He behaved abominably to
Then she rejoined her guests in
the drawing room, without suspect
ing that Norah, concealed by the
diningroom portieres, had over
heard the entire conversation.
