    Carrie shook her head. Like all women, she was there to objectand be convinced. It was for him to brush the doubts away andclear the path if he could."Why are you going home?" he asked.

   "I think so," she replied, very respectfully.

    The effect of the city and his own situation on Hurstwood wasparalleled in the case of Carrie, who accepted the things whichfortune provided with the most genial good-nature. New York,despite her first expression of disapproval, soon interested herexceedingly. Its clear atmosphere, more populous thoroughfares,and peculiar indifference struck her forcibly. She had neverseen such a little flat as hers, and yet it soon enlisted heraffection. The new furniture made an excellent showing, thesideboard which Hurstwood himself arranged gleamed brightly. Thefurniture for each room was appropriate, and in the so-calledparlour, or front room, was installed a piano, because Carriesaid she would like to learn to play. She kept a servant anddeveloped rapidly in household tactics and information. For thefirst time in her life she felt settled, and somewhat justifiedin the eyes of society as she conceived of it. Her thoughts weremerry and innocent enough. For a long while she concernedherself over the arrangement of New York flats, and wondered atten families living in one building and all remaining strange andindifferent to each other. She also marvelled at the whistles ofthe hundreds of vessels in the harbour--the long, low cries ofthe Sound steamers and ferry-boats when fog was on. The merefact that these things spoke from the sea made them wonderful.She looked much at what she could see of the Hudson from her westwindows and of the great city building up rapidly on either hand.It was much to ponder over, and sufficed to entertain her formore than a year without becoming stale.

    "I don't think he wants to buy," he said to himself. "He doesn'ttalk right."

   "Rhodes, Morgenthau and Scott--why, I know that house. over hereon Fifth Avenue, isn't it? They're a close-fisted concern. Whatmade you go there?"<  Carrie came in after he did.

    "I'll lay my hand to whatever I can get," he said, now that hesaw her brighten up. "I can get something."

   "Nothing of the kind," he answered. "I can't avoid businessrelations, and that's all there is to it."

    In the course of time it told upon his temper. His eye no longerpossessed that buoyant, searching shrewdness which hadcharacterised it in Adams Street. His step was not as sharp andfirm. He was given to thinking, thinking, thinking. The newfriends he made were not celebrities. They were of a cheaper, aslightly more sensual and cruder, grade. He could not possiblytake the pleasure in this company that he had in that of thosefine frequenters of the Chicago resort. He was left to brood.

<  "I think so," she replied, very respectfully.   He chatted on at a great rate, asking questions, explainingthings about himself, telling her what a good restaurant it was,until the waiter returned with an immense tray, bearing the hotsavoury dishes which had been ordered. Drouet fairly shone inthe matter of serving. He appeared to great advantage behind thewhite napery and silver platters of the table and displaying hisarms with a knife and fork. As he cut the meat his rings almostspoke. His new suit creaked as he stretched to reach the plates,break the bread, and pour the coffee. He helped Carrie to arousing plateful and contributed the warmth of his spirit to herbody until she was a new girl. He was a splendid fellow in thetrue popular understanding of the term, and captivated Carriecompletely.

    That night the pretty little flat seemed a commonplace thing. Itwas not what the rest of the world was enjoying. She saw theservant working at dinner with an indifferent eye. In her mindwere running scenes of the play. Particularly she remembered onebeautiful actress--the sweetheart who had been wooed and won.The grace of this woman had won Carrie's heart. Her dresses hadbeen all that art could suggest, her sufferings had been so real.The anguish which she had portrayed Carrie could feel. It wasdone as she was sure she could do it. There were places in whichshe could even do better. Hence she repeated the lines toherself. Oh, if she could only have such a part, how broad wouldbe her life! She, too, could act appealingly.


<  "She's making more than she says," thought Hurstwood. "She saysshe's making twelve, but that wouldn't buy all those things. Idon't care. Let her keep her money. I'll get something againone of these days. Then she can go to the deuce."   "I guess I'll go out," he said to himself, and went, strollingnowhere in particular, but feeling somehow that he must go.

    "Well, I don't know why you shouldn't. It'll be easier here thanit will there."
