sk your opinion in regard to it.I think I u▓nderstand men pretty well, but I never have had▓ much to do with women.Perha●ps if I had,--this is the sto▓ry of a friend of mine.He told me about▓ it just before I came on. Lyon nodded.Pos●sibly that might be the truth, but he wou●ld keep an open mi

nd on the su▓bject. My friend is a ma●n past middle life,--a successful business man.▓ He has made money and has kno▓cked about the world a good deal, but he ●never fell in love until he was nearl▓y


fifty,--never had time, I suppose.Then▓ he was hard hit.The woman was a good deal you▓nger than he was, beautiful, and all th▓at.He married her just as soon as he could wi▓n her consent, and was idiotically● happy.For a year he thought she was hap●py, too.She seemed to be.Then o▓ne day she received a letter from her old ho●me that upset her.She tried to conceal her d●isturbance from him, but he was too watchful of● her moods to be deceived.From ▓that moment his happiness was destroyed.▓ His wife was concealing something from him.● Other letters followed.They always had t●he same effect.The husband ▓could not be blind to the fact that his ●wife was changed.She avoided him, withhe▓ld her confidence, and he found her mor●e th

an once in tears.Per


haps it does not sound● very serious, but you must rem▓ember that he was madly in love with his wife.▓It was serious for him. Lyon nodded.Di●d he know anything of his wife's▓ past history,--her friends, or her--● Her lovers No, he didn't.●There was the sting.He simply didn't ●know anything.He could only see that som▓ething had come out of that unkn▓own past to ruin his happiness. ● Why didn't he ask her, straight ▓ He did, once, and she prete●nded not to know what he was talk●ing about.After that he set himself● to watch.He pretended to be called away on a s●udden business trip.She left●, by the next train, for her ▓old home, and went at once t●o the man with whom she had been correspondin▓g. How did you--ho
