After    this    ^declaration    of.' iude-  '_ prudence';  Ned 'Moore put-on his hat,  put out  his  pipe and  hurried around  the, corner  to a   secoudhand   clothing  ' shop,     lie  vvas a  bundle ,of coutrasts  ;    cud    .contradictions,'  this    handsome  bachelor of  2S.   , lie could  bully  his  pipes,  dogs., tire; could  scintillate wit  and 'talk himself'into smiles or tears���������  when  uMoue.    But,  lacking the shelter.  .   of home'and stimulus of solitude.' he  "was  a   different  creature.,.   IJashful���������  blushing like a young girl when spoken  , to���������and  hopelessly bankrupt in strong  talk of men or small talk of women, he  was generally regarded as cold, proud,  awkward, morose,    lie was nothing of  the  kind���������nierely-self conscious,   that  -w::s all.    Hut in his case a small fault  was enough   to  vvoyk  much  mischief.  Indeed   this   habit   of   self   centering  thought  had  made the poor fellow an  easy victim to-fever and laler-delayed  convalescence.     And   for   this   reason  his'-doctor  insisted  that  when  he did  ,visit   the seashore he should stay atji  ,   fashionable hotel.  When Ned Moore arrived at the sec-,  otidh'tnd shop, he made the painful  discovery that,the blue serge suit Ik*  wished to buy vvas-built for a 'man  twice his size. It vvas his (irst experience, however, 'with a secondhand  clothing merchant, and constitutional  bashi-'uli'.ess made him an easy victim.  Ten minutes later he left that shop  the owner of,a tweed lounge suit,  handsome, it is true, but a combination of yellow,and black aggressively  ������������������horsy" In color and pattern. He did  , not' like the ' filing; in fact, positively loathed the bizarre' combination  Of color and cut. Unfortunately the'  . salesman said it was the lliing for him  to buy, it ml of course he bought it.  Moreover, he vvns (old to buy, ttiuruid,'-  {i p;llr of Ian colored shoes' nnd It sti\*w>  hat encircled by a black and yellow'  ribhen.  When Ned .Moore caught his" first  view of the crowded veranda, of the  Monmouth House, lie wished ho hadn't  come, and after working his way  through a bevy of pretty girls surrounding the1 main door ho decided to  skip dinner in the big dining room and  Mip modestly in the small cafe.  Twilight deepened while he dined,  ftlld there came to the ex-invalkl with  the gathering shadows a strange longing for companionship. Indeed the  loi'.elihess of the room soon grew painfully oppressive. Through the open  v-'indow came Ihe heavy salt nir. hearing to his ears the mingled talk tthd  In light el* of the many people oil the  Pilildrf. He could see the after" dinner  crowd drifliim; lustily along the broad.  Handy beach iiiiii. fiulhcr mviiy. many  Isolated ������������������couples." busy, any one could  wo, retelling (lull old story which re-  im'U'k its youth with each feneration.  Lad the old tiuiod still held Ned Moore  In bondage he would have gone for it  walk under lhe pines across the lake  and moped and smoked. Hut tonight  new feelings possessed him. He was  dominated by a newborn desire to  ���������dray nearer the heart of life���������to come  In closer touch,witli that crowd of pretty women down by the sea. Aiid so he  paid his bill, put on his hat and was  soon one of the multitude. '   ���������  True, once or twice lie did feel a trifle nervous as this new drawing toward  the fair sex increased in strength, ami  something whispered he vvas taking  big risks. It was this feeling, perhaps,  which led him to quicken his steps,  and lie was soon clear of the crowd.  But at tbe very niome.nl vylion he fancied his, feelings were well'in hand he  came suddenly into the presence of the  prettiest woman he had ever seen.  She vvas all alone and, half reclining on  '.lie sand, was gazing steadfastly across  tlie sea rto where tbe harvest moon  slowly lifted out of the great' waters.  Before he know,what he was doing  \'ed Moure had stenped behind tho ghi.  dropped on the, sand,  slipped'his arm  around her waist and. was giving her,  r.:i old fashioned hug.  - That the young: woman took Uindly  to  tins embrace, was  ip'tickly  proved,  for   her   hea-j   dropped   against    Ned  'Moore's   shoulder,  and   a   little   hand  stroked    his   yellow   and' black   coat  sleeve.     Moreover, the young  woman  murmured   loud   enough  to   be' heard  above the rush of the, surf:  "Yes. darling!"    .   ' ,  1 Nod   Mi,"ore  could   plainly   hear   his  heart beating, but he couldn't, to save  his .life.-get a  grip ou , words.    i)o  he  hugged the girl again."   She roomed to  read the rigid meaning iti his silence,  however, for she whispered: '  "Such' a heavenly night, Isn't it,  sweetheart?''  "I must say something," thought Ned  Moore, and he, was on the point of  speaking when another man spoke for  him:     ' ,      "  '  '''Well. I'm darned!" ' '  \And when Noil-Moore looked up he'  saw facing him a man'about his own  size and build���������a man' whose' face wns  ���������livid with passion.1 The intruder didn't  give .Ned long to think, however, for  he hurst out:    ��������� A '  '-'W.liat is this, Nell?    ^Vhat in thunder"��������� >     ' .   '      A   '  ��������� He got no further, for. with a shriek,  the young 'woman sprang away  from  Ned Moore.    When she faced him, she  looked  an  enraged  tigress.    She was  too angry for words"  "Answer me, Nell���������answer!"      i  "Oh.  it's all  a  mistake���������a  dreadful  mistake!" cried the young ���������\voinan. -  "Mistake?   Nonsense!" . ' ,      ���������  "No.  truth,  Jack,"   and   the  pretty,  tear stained face was lifted toward the  angry man.   "I was sitting "here," she  ran on, her roice tremulous, "waiting"  for you. and I had just dreamed my  way hack tocla..st summer'aud was, oh,  so happy, living,over those dear, sweet  days,   when   somebody,   so   like   you;  passed between me and the sea, fitting  in. oh, so true, with my sweet dream!  Then   an' arm   stole   around   me���������the  'same old yellow and black coat sleeve,  and"���������                          ���������  "Why, bless my soul," cut in the an-,  gry lover.'eying Ned 'Moore Intently,  "you've got on myohl courting rig! I  see it all now. Nell. dear, don't say another word. IKsAll my fault. I'd no  business to sell teat dear old courting  coal.    It was rank sacrilege!"  For an a-wful moment Ned Moore had  been trying lo settle in his own 'mind  whether he vvas dreaming. To find he  was not lifted a great weight from  his mind, and he joined his new acquaintances in a hearty laugh. Then  he said: ' ^  '.'Anil.you "forgive me, then, both of  you?"  "Why. of course we do," cried Jack  and'tNell. iwuY then Jack continued:  "It's,my skitti'shhlack and tan courting coat that played the deuce with  both of you. How did you get hold of  It?" .  "Bought It secondhand, but I'll make  yoii a 'present of the whole outfit ns  soon as I get back to" my own modest  clot hen. Holiest. I hnveti't klioWU myself since I put the wild rig oh."  ��������� Jack s.'lid he didn't want the coat, but  his sweetheart timidly remarked:  "Yen; hike it from him, Jack. Yoti  must. I'll never feel quite sure of myself while that coat belongs to another  man.",  Ned Moore found something more;  than health at tlie seashore���������found his'  heart. Anel he returned to New York a  new mati. Something, time soon testified, had opened.bachelor eyes to the  loveliness of woman, tlie loneliness of  bachelor life, for in six months he married���������married and settled down to hard  work and home life. But for reasons  the nature of which be did not explain  to his little wife he never parted with  his own courtiug coat, even when its  days of active service had departed.��������� =J  Chicago Times-Herald.  4HM"*###4i#4?#4f#4'^  <      !���������     (���������     S     t-    ���������:    C-     ������    *     J     1'    B     ,;     C     *      !_-    tl     ������������������������     <r     ���������������    f,     ft     *     S     3     s!
