      《百利宫真人网》

      Its worse in America than it is here, but every day the pace gets hotter, the gambling more feverish. The wrecks of men that have passed through my hands, men that at forty and earlier are practically used up, and no amount of drugs or rest will do them much good! They[235] get through the rest of their lives instead of living! While you were in India I practised in New York for a couple of years with Finlay McKay. One man came to me at the beginning of my stay, and begged me to pull him together. I preached a holiday, relaxation. He said No, but as soon as he had made a couple of million dollars hed stop. Hed set himself that task. A year later he came to me in such a frazzled state that I was ashamed of my sex. Hed made his pile, hed gained his ambition. Now rest, said I, you have still a slender chance if youre careful. I cant, doctor, he said. I cant do anything except work. Ive done what I set out to do, but I cant stop now. Life without my work wouldnt be worth while. I thought it was a bank balance I wanted, but its the game! I told that man I would give him six months if he didnt clear out of it and go for a long sea voyage. There, in my presence, he deliberately chose the six months. He died in four.... Most men nowadays are crazy to get ahead of other men. To a man, the game: to a woman, love; for whatever women may do or have done, love for them will always remain the great adventure.

      Her mothers bedroom and dressing-room suggested a hothouse with a quantity of mirrors. Circe had always been something of an exotic, and lately she had grown more so, or what Pat called stuffier. There was an insidious Eastern perfume that always trailed after Sybil Iverson, and the room Claudia entered was heavy with it. The hangings and huge divan were Oriental in colouring and material. The sun was excluded from the room by pink curtains closely shrouding the windows, and electric lamps with becoming shades were burning. Her mother was in the dressing-room, prostrate under the hands of the masseur, who had a great reputation among women, especially those who were on the borderland of youth and middle age. He was ridiculously expensive, but his hands were magical.

      Several people came up to make their adieux, among them Frank Hamilton.

      Mrs. Currey, this is my last day here, you know. Too bad its wet, isnt it? We might have gone over the links once again together.

      I have heard she is very handsome and a great favourite in Society, returned his mother gloomily. It is a bad report to my way of thinking. Thats how her mother started.

      No, will you take me and give me some? They walked together to the next room. Dear me, would you mind hobbling on your knees, or providing me with stilts? After the miniature women of Japan you take my breath away. The modern Englishwoman is really a glorious creature.

      Thats life, she laughed. If you take the chocolate one, you always wish you had taken the jam-puff. And, after all, a little wearily, what does it matterchocolate or jam? Equally sweet, perhaps, and equally unwholesome.

      Is your hand better? said Claudia, half smiling, half embarrassed. Please tell me first, are youFay?
