When Marjorie saw the face the sorrowful, delicate face, and listened to the refined accent and pretty choice of words, she knew that Morris Kemlo was a gentleman because his mother was a lady. Prue wandered around the kitchen, looking at things and asking questions. Deborah was never cross to Prue.

The rich young man shook his head with the air of one who goes away exceedingly sorrowful. "No," he replied, "we can't. The business won't stand it." This story presents in miniature the social attitude of the majority of men. They cannot be held entirely responsible. Their minds automatically function just that way.

But the men who were the most sorrowful of all, and who, by reason of their anxiety, felt the keenest regret, were the pretorian prefect, whom the Romans call "praetor," and the administrator of the treasury, and all to whom had been assigned the collection of either public or imperial taxes, for they reasoned that while it would be necessary for them to produce countless sums for the needs of the war, they would be granted neither pardon in case of failure nor extension of time in which to raise these sums.

Leslie looked at them youthful, hopeful, happy, typifying all she had missed and must forever miss. The light went out of her face and eyes; the girl vanished; it was the sorrowful, cheated woman who answered the invitation almost coldly and got herself away with a pitiful haste.
