A charming little lady by the name of Bambi visited you last year, with promises of fun and good cheer to all who would read her. This year her sister, "Bob" Garratry, is with us, an original and sparkling, clever, charming Irish girl who, from the bottom rungs, climbs slowly but surely up the ladder of success until she is the best loved actress on the American stage. But life is empty and vain for Barbara, until her strange compact with Paul Trent—their "dual alliance," and what grows out of it. Finally Barbara, her problem solved, takes part in a thrilling campaign which puts her husband in the chair of Governor of the State.

"Your apartment is too----"

"You couldn't be comfortable there with your maid."
