"Why, you certainly looked interested," returned the older man, laughing. "But I don't think you need apologize to the young lady. She's used to attention. Rather lives on it, I guess." The tone jarred on Hal. "I had a queer, momentary feeling that I'd seen her before," he said. "Don't you recall where?" "No," said Hal, startled. "Do I know her?"

Arline's eyes were wet, and there was a croak in her voice when she cried jubilantly: "Well, ain't that better 'n a sewin' machine or a piano?" But Val did not attempt an answer. She was staring staring as if she could not convince herself of the reality. Even Manley was jarred out of his gloomy meditations, and half rose in the seat that he might see over Hank's shoulder.

You'll have to do without me in a little time, and you'll be glad I'm gone. Dick felt his way back to the big chair, and wondered what these things might mean.

It was a night when one might listen to the music of the spheres, and Spencer was suddenly jarred into unpleasant consciousness of his surroundings by the raucous voices of some peasants bawling a Romansch ballad in a wayside wine house. Turning sharply on his heel, he took the road by the lake. There at least he would find peace from the strenuous amours of Margharita as trolled by the revelers.

Down they went, at first slowly and then more rapidly, till it seemed to them that they had descended over a thousand feet.

"Not quite so 'tractive, too pale and want animation, when you're calm." She did not answer, but felt a quiver of repulsion.

Sadie was not remarkably fastidious; she had, for several years, managed a hotel, and had used her physical charm to attract the man, but she was jarred.

The sound, intensified there in that still place, jarred through Sally's senses. She roughly told herself that she was a fool. "You know I'm in a bank?" he began. "Yes; of course."
