The Eighth Proposal
(CoNT:NUED FROM PAGE 7)
" Speak up. Marion," laughed Carey.
" Oh, yes, I'll speak up! Well, it so happens,
Minnie, that I do want my walk with Arnold this
afternoon, even after all these years, as you say."
" Bravo!  Now, then, Minnie!"
Minnie laughed. " Oh, we'll go, in that case,
and we're sorry we came, aren't we, George ? But
if you two are engaged, without telling me, I think
it's mean."
" We aren't engaged." Carey affirmed promptly.
" Well, good-by. If vou should shortly feel the
need of congratulations comle to ie.
When they were alone again Marion turned to
Carev. " She'll tell every one she meets that we're
engaged." she exclaimed. " It's abominable!"
" What ? "
" The whole thing. And she told me the other
day that some one said that you admired Hetty
more than you do me."
" I do. In some ways."
" Arnold, are you in love with Hetty ?
" That is a question I must refuse to answer."
As he spoke a servant brought in a telegram. She
tore it open and looked at it fixedly. " There's no
answer, William."   Then she added, turning to
Carey, who had not moved   " Mr. Wessington is
coming this evening."
''That Englishman?"
Yes."
"'Is he in love with you, Marion ?
She laughed. "'That is a question I must
refuse to answer.' "
"All right, dear girl; that's perfectly fair. Let's
go outside."
They sat down in the shade on the lawn and for
a short time both were silent. Then he said
abruptly: " And the third time ?"
"That was at Jamestown. Well,' Eliot' wsa
there, too."
''And the fourth time ?"
That was-oh, why       rake  up  these   ld
matters ? "
" Curiosity, retrospection, jealousy. Why was
it ? "
" Well, I found that I didn't care about him.and
I made up my mind I'd be very sure befort    I
0 cepted - any one."
" I see. A very praiseworthy resolution indeed.
ut why,in view of such a resoluiton,did you wire
to come to Nantucket, and dirt wNith me lik
n ad for three weeks there ?
he flushed. " Because -I hated your flirtinu
les,ie Whiting."
'lu1 didn't want me to marry her, thci.
Ahv not?"
uppose because I-I liked you t
.-..There!"
:-:t not enough to marry me."
t I enough to marry you. By-the-way,
-nt to marry Bessie ? t
i ant to marry Bessie ? My dear girl, a man

Bessie is very nice! "
S lOh, very. Well -number five
Let's talk of something else."
\o."
.lien tell me about Mrs. Potter ? "
irek rose suddenly.  " Hang Mrs. Potter."
With pleasure. Did you make love to her ?
I did."
Ind did she return your affection?"
-ich as it was, she did."
A\nd Jarvis Collamore ? "
-aersis Collamore had no objection, so far as I
know.   He is used to it."
" Were you in love with her?"
" Yes, more or less. She is an unusually fasci
nating woman.  Now let's chuck all that, Maidie
- Just as you like. I'm going up for a sleep now%
a, I wish to look my best to-night."
" For Wessington ? "
" For Wessington."
"Observe my delicacy in not asking again swhether
Le is in love with you or not."
" I observe. Good-by."
When she came down three hours later Carey
went up to her.
" Did you sit down in front of your glass to study
1our face when you left me ?"
"I-did.    And I've come to the conclusion that
I'm not so bad, after all ! How do I look
" Shall I tell you what I think ? "
But she left him as he was about to go on, and

vs Arthur Lewellyn Wessington decided that
isA  never seen the beautiful Miss Wheelock so
ely as she was that night in her plain black
wn.   He had had no intention of proposing to
:,er that evening. or even that week, but it is
exactly what he did, as they two sat in the corner
of the veranda and listened to selections from
Tschaikowsky's Pathetic Symphony.
An hour afterward Miss Wheelock and Carey
stood by the lake in the starlight.
To continue-the sixth time?"
Oh.don't, Arnold.  Why should I refuse you if
--ause I didn't want to marry you ?
"as that why ? "
z did not answer.
Nell, let that pass. But the last time. Two
ago-here?"
!;,-cause-surely to-day is past ? It ttcult be
rrow ! "
I*s not eleven yet. Tell me, Maidic.
Then if I must, I don't know  hy'
'u don't know."
N,. Perhaps it was because I ,a, ,c ut.cd to
-"toyou."
Perhaps it was. Why did you refuse Giles
Arthur Iewellyn just now?"
" That's unfair of you."
" I asked you why you did, not whether you did.
Any one could see what had happened."
" Then-because I didn't love him."
Carey was silent for a few seconds, and then he
said: " You didn't give that reason for refusing
me. Marion."
"IDidn't I ? Well. I'm sleepy! Good-night."
"Good-night. Only one more question. Why
did you refuse me the eighth time ? "
" The eighth ? There were only seven times."
" No, eight. I've been asking you all day as
hard as I could. And you understood."
" Then - I've been accepting you all day as hard
as I could."
