quite firmly, "that it was Impossible

"Now, ypu wouldn't, surely hurl that

Alan saw Dolly looking at him and
waving her handkerchief, her fnce
warm and flushed. He was tempted to
go to her, but she still snt by her father
and mother, and that fact checked him.
Mrs. Barclay caught Ills eye and, rising suddenly, enme through thu crowd
to him, She extended her gloved hand.
"You and Dolly must stop your foolishness," she said. "I've been thinking

Alan thanked her. He was so full of
happiness that he was afraid to trust
his voice to utterance. As Mrs. Barclay was going back to her husband
and daughter Pole Baker passed. Alan
grasped him by the hand.

and quavering, "I want to tell you that
I think more of you thau I do of auy

As Alan wus about to: get Inlo his

Plly (tie Toor Bachelor.
Laying ull jokes aside, whnt excust
bus un old bachelor fur living? Possibly the better one is thut he can't help
it or that it is no fault of his that he
is or that lie continues to exist. These
observations ure made from the old
maid's point of view, which seems to
be the point from wliich the old bachelor Is viewed. There are other view-
points I'roni'whieh he appears to better
ud Vantage, particularly at first glance,
but when the halo of sentiment which
he bus gathered around him lias been
blown away even these points do not
offer entrancing views. Tlie fact remains, however, that he still exists and
still has natural force enough to develop a halo of sentiment that is more
or less attractive to the opposite sex,
if not really .magnetic, and strong
enough to draw attention to him, and
respectful nttentlou too. The bachelor
ought to know why he is us he is, aud
no doubt he does, but 'for some reason
or Other ho has not been entirely successful in satisfying the public that his
reasons are good and sutiicient. It is
up lo him, therefore, to set public opinion   right   concerning   jiiinself.

Matthew Robinson (Lord Kokeby), a
prominent but eccentric Englishman
of the eighteenth Century, became famous for bis long beard and his pronounced hatred of medical practitioners. In regard to the former It Is said
Hint Upon one occasion when going to
an election he stopped ut an Inn where
the country people, who had assembled
I'l-oni iulles anunid, took him for a
Turk and through this mistaken idea
almost worried "nie lord" to death,
llis dislike for physicians was carried
i such an extreme that he left it codicil to his will which was to the effect
llinl u favorite nephew was to be disinherited should he (the nephew) in the
hist illness of the lord let his sympathies cause him to send for a doctor.
This having been made known to 'the

allowed Unit person's spirit to take Its
flight wilhout culling in nny of the "iu-

"Now thnt It is all over, I don't mind
telling you that Is the girl that I had
cho.en for you to marry."
She looked up at him over the great
bunch of pink roses that she held in
her arms nud from under the soft chiffon of her white hat, and he looked
down at her out of deep set eyes under shaggy brows. Then his glance
followed hers down the long distance
of the room, resting on the girl who
stood there beneath a bower of palms.
The cloudy masses of her white veil
were thrown back from n fuce of smiles
and blushes ns she received congratulations and wondered vaguely at the
strange sweetness of It all.
"You—don't—mean It?" There were
grent pauses of Incredulity between
Wilton's words, nnd the slow smile
that euiiie Into his eyes wus not one of
vanity, rather of great pleasure In nu
unexpected compliment.
"Is she not the fell. I hnve nlwnys described? Tull nnd slender, big brown
eyes and soft, curling, light brown
hair? Y'ou huve been blind nil this

sho added sudly. "Y'ou both seem so

"Why did you not tell me sooner?
I might have set to work. It would
have been hard work, though." He
was still looking at the bride.
"Piny the part of matchmaker? And
where niy little sister wns concerned?
Ah, no! I could not tell you, but I
did so went it."
"Thnt Is the greatest compliment
you could hnve paid me. I really"—
He hnd turned and was ldbklng down
Into her eyes. Suddenly he stopped
us if a thought hud stilled bis words,
nnd the color left his face for oue
short second.
"Come," she said, ns though divining
his thought and wishing to interrupt
it, "you are to mnke the Urst toast, I
believe. You must continue your duties ns best mnn."
She led the wny down the long hall,
and together they pnused on the
threshold of the dining room.
"Did you do this?" he usked.
"Yes.   Do you like it?"
He stood silently drinking In the
beauty of the room, with Its filmy
draperies of asparagus fern, amid the
delicate green of which stood forth tall
silver nnd crystal vases filled with
long«temmed Bridesmaids' roses. Here
and there low bowls of green aud gold
Bohemian glass were half burled be-
ncuth the dainty color of the Duchesse
rose veiled in leaves of maidenhair.
The conventional cake, with Its streamers of narrow satin ribbon, shimmered
white amid the colors, and the pink
shaded cundles threw soft reflections
over everything.
It was very beautiful, and he said so
to her. She was very beautiful as she
moved nbout in ber clinging gown of
palest green chiffon, straightening a
leaf here or bendlug a flower there, and
his eyes said so, although she did not
see it.
Then the next thing ho knew the
room wns filled with people, the young
bride wns beside him, and some one
wus holding a glass toward him, saying, "Will you not toast them?"
He looked at tho bride, bowed and
"Hall to thee, blithe spirit!" then
stopped, laughing. "That won't do.
You nro not a skylark."
"She's a bird, though," vehemently
interrupted a boy who hnd adored the
girl for years.
"Then I cannot continue nt all. for

tall man standing near, then Into tho
eyes of the girl bride.

Wilton slipped from the crowded
room out into the quiet hnlls, where he
wundereil up und down, thinking, wondering how he hud not thought the
sunie thing before. All these months
past how stupid he hud been! Yes. he
thought it would do no harm to try his
luck. All, no: she never would, she
could not love hlin: It was too much to

find— But she had chosen hlin for the
little sister, whom he knew she loved

The idea hail taken so strong a hold

looked down into her eyes to thank her
for her compliment that now he wondered how he could have been blind to

open doors, a breeze softly stirred in
th_ palm leaves above their bends, the
pink rose petals Slipped from her lingers in a shower down over her gown
as she put her hands up on Wilton's

Her stately Carriage.
The piny wus over. The actors, who
had lived long on dreams of n full
house such ns had faced them at this
performance, hastoued to the box office, where they expected to witness
the manager enact the rule of the
ghost in a beautiful, heart throbbing
drama called "The Postponed Walk of

"A vacation of Jolly good fun without n romance," he mused. "Nature,

good fishing; nothing mure to be desired."
The film sank In the developing fluid,
and lu u few seconds the outlines of a
coast scone appeared, First came the
blotches of black, representing the high
lights—clouds and the crests of waves.
By an alchemy which never ceases to
be marvelous all the delicate gradations of light and shade filled Iu until
the perfect picture appeared.
Then occurred something which caused Cari'lngton to gasp lu astonishment
and almost drop the developing tray,
for In the center of the picture, head
and shoulders visible above the crest of
a breaker, appeared the form of a young
woman, like a mermaid arising out of
the sea. There was u saucy tilt to the
laughing fnce, and the bare arms were
outstretched as a beckoning mermaid's
might have been. Cnrrlngton knew that
no human being had been in that expanse of sea while ho wns on the bench.

The journey hud not beeu altogether
In vain. And while other passengers
on that train chatted gay ly together or
read their newspapers or watched tho
panorama of forest aud farmland and
the twinkling lights of villages thero
was one young man .whose eyes and
attention did not wander from a photograph he held before him.
Three months Inter he wns nt one of
Mrs. Bloomer Billings' receptions. Ho
did not know Mrs. Bloomer Billings,
but he had not been idle during the autumn montliR, and without being a
Sherlock Holmes he decided that be
must get an Invitation, and be did.
Mrs. Billings wns a literary lady
whose assemblages were diverse and
often astonishing. Artists anil writers'
attended them, musician's and player
folk, with a leavening of accepted "society." They were truly heterogeneous
gatherings.   -
Eagerly Cnrrington sennned the
rooms. A long haired violinist had just
finished a Beethoven sonata, nnd there
was much chipping of hands. Cnrrlngton was presented to Mrs. Billings,
who was surrounded by n bevy of
pretty girls. A moment of gallant conversation, and then his face lit up with
n sudden Joy that caused his hostess'to
look up In politely suppressed wonder.
In that group, now In n setting of pink
and white, but with the same laughing
face of the glistening beach und wave,
stood his lady of the sea.
An hour later they sat together on a
window sent listening to n prima donna's song.
"I have a picture I Would like you to
see, Miss Lungford," he said dilliilent-
ly. He took the photograph from hli
pockelbook und showed It to her.
She gave a little startled cry, and the
unmounted print fell from her hand.
"Why—why, you! were at Berkeley
inni" she exclaimed.
"I took a picture of the beach, but
not that one," he said slowly. "And
yet that ls the one I found in my camera."
Their eyes met for nn Instnnt, nnd
the girl flushed ci'lnfson. Silent nnd bewildered, she studied the photograph.
Suddenly she broke inlo the luugh of
the wnter witch ngnin.
"No less surprising wus the picture .
my sister took of me," she exclaimed
excitedly.   "The wnler nnd rocks were
lovely, but I was nowhere to be seen!"
"Now the myslcry Is no longer mysterious!" laughed Cnrrlngton. "it's plu In
enough. I saw another camera III the
hole! olllce, but never thought until
this instant that I might hnve picked
up the wrong one. Your sisler took a
picture wilh my cuineru, nnd I look
one with hers." Suddenly he became
silent and alter a monienl or two stammered, "1—1 suppose Ihis is your sister's properly, but may 1 not keep II?"
The girl tossed her head iitid sullied
In mock hesitation. She had been turning the picture aioiinfl unil nrountl iu
her hand. Then' the smile und the wurm
blood left her face in company, nnd
there was an nlmost imperceptible
tremor of the lung dark eyelashes, On
the back of the photograph she hud
"My mermaid."
Agnin their eyes met. but hers were
quickly withdrawn. Her hesitation was
real now.
Both were silent another moment. Ho
But eagerly, expectantly. Her eyes were
fixed on the floor, and us she sloa'ly extended her bund and placed the picture
lu his he felt the warm touch of her
finger tips.
If those who nro doubtful ns to the
correct course to pursue In nny given
situation will remember that even the'
wrong thing ls overlooked lf one is bnt j
absolutely  polite In  the doing of It i
their relief might be great.

"Aunt Cassie came to visit us and .she
saw I was nervous, had ihe fidgets all the
time, and she asked me many questions,
and finally said, ' Why, you dear, sweet girl,
it's not your temper that's bad, it's your
constitution that's out of killer. Vou sit
tijfht down now and w itc a letter to Dr.
Pierce, at Jluftalo, tl. *_., tell liim all your
symptoms'—and so I did. It wasn't long
bi-r-ire I had a long reply, carefully going
0 my case and telling mc just what to
do. I date uiy present happiness and little
Cupid's return to the very day I sat down
to write that letter to llr. Pierce, for his
advice was so good and his ' .favorite Tre-
scription' worked such a complete change
in me that now iny former cheerfulness
and good health—not to say anything of
good looks—ate restored to me*. I have
summoned Tom back to my side and we

It is natural that a woman who has been
cured of womanly disease by "Favorite

should recommend to other women the

I know him for a gentleman
By signs that never fall;
His coat was rough and rather worn,
His cheeks were thin and pale—
A lad who had his wuy to make,
With little time to play,
I knew him for a gentleman
By certain signs to-day.
He met his mother on the street;
Off came hfa little cap.
My door was shut he waited there
Until I heard his rap.
He took the bundle from my hand,
And when I dropped my pen
He sprang to pick It up for me,
This gentleman of ten.
He does not push or crowd along;
His voice ls gently pitched;
He does not fling his books about
As if he were bewitched.
He stands aside to let you pass;
He always shuts the door;
He runs on errands willingly.
To forge and mill and store.
He thinks of you before himself;
He serves you lf he can,
For In whatever company,
The manners make the man.
At ten and forty 'tis the same;
The manner tells the tale,
And I discern the gentleman
By signs that never fall.
