Suggestions o f an y eort nsnnlly carat from me rather than Margery, fo r ] have in my veins the adventurous-blood of stanch New England ancestry, \vbc bnd bnrned witches and fongbt Indian* and later pursued a relentless traffic ic wooden Dntmegs with the same high courage and fine disregard of conse quences, whilo Margery is of Dutch de scent an d inclined t o be cautious, i f not a bit pig beaded, a s I often told her. But no on e coul d help loving b,er, in spite of ber little touch of Dutc h ob stinacy, least o f all myself, for o f all the provoking little women tbat were ever created for th e express purpose o i charming and tormenting their fellow men Margery was the most deliciously dear, an d I loved her s o well I could forgive her anything—that is, anything but th e way sbo treated Jac k Beasley., The dance sh e led that poor fellow wa s something to move eve n a bearded Turk t o pity Fo r a whole year she ha d kept hi m dangling after ber a s abjectly as a dancinq doll a t the end of a string, and yet , as far a s we could see, be had \ made no progress whatever i n ber way ward affections. W e bad been talking things over. Jack, Ned and I, in Margery's absence (I never dared mention Jack to Mar gery for fear of still further exciting that famou s obstinacy of hers), an d even Ned, th e moBt hopeful of mortals, had hod t o admit Jack's chances looked blue. Ned, be i t known , was the daring youth who bad undertaken t o guide my New England enterprise and other vir tues (too numerous to mention) through life's pilgrimage. He an d Jac k were partners in a law office and occupied the flat o n th e to p floor, where they indulged in certain mysterious rites they called light house keeping, while Margery an d I taught music and Delsarte an d practiced th e modest virtues of hospitality in th e flat below. Nothing, therefore, could have been more fit, suitable and otherwise to be desired than to hav e Margery and Jafk fall in love with eacb other, even a s Ned and I bad done. Jack was willing enough, poor boy, but Margery balked. It wa s to o provoking. A s I said before, we three had been talking i t over th e day before while Margery was absent teaching the luck less children of a rloh soap manufac turer t o play Wagner on th e piano an d had all agreed tha t th e situation looked hopeless. ' Jack ba d been in th e depths of de spair because th e tenor of th e choir fo r which Margery played the_organ ha d called three times that week, and , though I didn't believe sh e cared a pi n for the tenor, I bad never known naugh ty Margery t o appear more willfully re gardless of Jack's feelings. We bad parted, therefore, gloomily enough, after a fruitless conference, and I ha d relieved my mind b y being especially cross t o Margery all day, though I must own she didn' t seem to mind much. It was an awful day, mining cats and dogs, an d i n tb e afternoon I got tired of bein g cross all by myself an d propoEed tbat we should shampoo ou r hair an d dry it o n th e parlor radiator, the only on e i n th e flat large enough for th e purpose. Of course Margery object ed. Visitors might come, sh e said, an d then who woul d le t them in? I scouted the idea of visitors on such \a day un less, I observed with sarcasm, she was expecting tb e tenor again. She didnjt notice this stab, so I pro ceeded to sa y tbat as th e radiator 'was in tbe cornertwe could pull our big Jap anese screen up i n front of it and, se cure i n our hiding place, le t our entire visiting acquaintance, including mes senger boys an d duns, knock at tb e door till they go t tired an d then, de part, blissfully unaware of ou r proxim ity Accordingly i t wasn't long before we were snugly ensconced on a pile of sofa pillows o n tb e parlor floor, wrapped i n our bathrobes an d with our wet locks streamin g ou t behind u s across tee ra diator, over which we ba d stretched a steamer,rug We were armed with a novel apiece, bu t soon got to talking girl fashion an d were deep i n a dfscus- sion of Amos Judd when there came v loud knock ut th e door ••> \Great Scott I' I exclaimed i n a stage whisper.- tbe rosy advantages of my plan suddenly fading i n the cold light of reality ^ \There. I told yon sol' \cried Mar gery ungenerously, sitting up abruptly so tba t be r hair'fell al l about her in a great shining, coppery-sfio.wer \Sh—shut up I\ I whispered, reach-' ing out with an agitated stockinged to e for th e bedroom slipper I ba d carelessly kicked off a moment before. Again. th e knock came, tbis time more imperative \What in heaven's name. shall we do?' jruepe'd Margery \Keep still.' I said sotto voce. Tben tb e door- bandle turned , and we heard Ned's voice saying \There's no body home. Let's couo in an d wait for them.\ \All right,\ was th e reply i n Jack's bass tones. i \Maybe it's no t tbe proper tbing. bu t we might a s well risk it.\ And w.e heard tb e door close a s our vis itors entered an d took possession of ou r apartment. It was to o ridiculous. I' d have bud to lang b if ou r liven ha d been a t stake, and in spite of -the imminent danger of discovery i n tbis mortifying plight I stuffed all of a sofa pillow that would go into my mouth an d shook till my sides ached. It wo e th e expression o n Margery's face that recalled me to-mysel f at last. Chancing t o glance up from behin d a corner of th e cushion I was' trying t o swallow, I cangbt ber listening with strained attention t o something tha t was being said on the other side o f tb e screen, with ever y bi t of color gone out of her face an d a look i n be r eyes I' d never seen there before. \Yes Jack was eaying, \if they .don't hurry, I'll hove t o go withcut saying good by. My train leaves at 7. and I'v e lots t o do.\ Ntd lighted bis pipe before he re plied Dear Ned, I believe be would emoke in heaven i f Peter didn't tak e tbe precaution to search him before b e let him in. \I guess it'll surprise tbem eome,' ! be remarked a t last. \Especially when they bear you're never coming back.\ I nudged Margery violently a t this, but sh e didn't look a t me—the minx— and tben Jack went o n dolefully - \Ob they won't care very much, I'm afraid 1\ \Of course they will,\ proteeted Ned. puffing away . \And I will anyway Must yo u go , old boy?\ \Well it' s this way, Ned: As long as I hoped tha t Margery might care fo r me I wouldn't give in t o my uncle's proposition tha t I should marry hi s ward, Miss Wilson, an d become bi s beir, bu t now tbat I' m satisfied I have no chance with tho girl I love, I might as well marry the other on e and please the old man, I suppose. I'l l b e miser able anyway.\ And Jack heaved such a sigh tba t tb e big paper screen waved about till it threatened to como down upon our heads.
