A CHANGE OF ATMOSPHERE

He had half expected his relations with that young matron, the past considered, to be of a slightly tender and sentimental nature. Far from it. Her attitude to him was simply maternalas, indeed, it had been, had he realised the fact, from the very beginning of their friendship. A woman always feels motherly towards a man of her own age, and rightly, for she is much older than he is. Occasionally she mistakes this motherly feeling for something else, and marries him-but not often. Obviously Mildred Leroy now regarded Hughie as nothing more than an eligible young debutant, the chaperon's natural prey, to be rounded up and paired off with all possible despatch.
Then there was Joey. Twenty-four 'hours ago he had had no particular views on the subject of his ward, beyond
(1) The reflection that he would probably find her "rather a bore";
(2) An idle speculation as to whether, if expediency should demand it, he would be able to bring himself to marry her.
Well, twenty-four hours is a long time. He saw now quite clearly that whatever Miss Gaymer's shortcomings might be, a tendency to bore her companions was not one of them ; and that if ever the other question should arise, the difficulty would lie, not in bringing himself to marry Joey, but in bringing Joey to marry him.

A CHANGE OF ATMOSPHERE

the engines of the Orinoco.
