Excerpt: ...said Caroline Smith, but her voice trembled, and her eyes told him to go on. "I'm going back and tell Bill Gregg that, down in your heart, you love him just about the same as he loves you!" "Oh," she asked, "would you say a thing like that? It isn't a bit true."

"That you love him, in fact." "Why shouldn't I tell you?" demanded the girl, breaking down suddenly. "I do love him, and I can never see him to tell him, because I dread John Mark."
