1 Of DOLLY
iThrillino Encounter With Bandits
Puts Pompous Italian Count
j to Rout.
By H. 8. CANFIELD, JR. ,
1 Arnold was already honrtlly tired
of the dUgulBcC It was his naturo to
do all things openly and above board;
and it Irked him to havo to stoop to
subterfuge, even in ttao struggle for
tho hand of the woman ho held above
all. Besides, for a man who had nev
er answered to the call or the crnzo
of the petrol, goggles, high-collared
coat and bunglcsomo cap formed a
dlscomfltting rampart behind which to
hide features and form. With a growl
tag Imprecation against stubborn
fatherB and fate, who kept him fight
ing for his share of the world's goods
Instead of endowing him with such at
short notice, Arnold swept tho big,
rakish-looking car In a viciously short
curve and brought It to a panting
standstill beforo tho Leonard mansion
In the Upper Drive.
To his associates and enemies alike
on 'Change, "Old Bull" Leonard was
the personification of what all good
mothers warn their sons against grow
ing up Into. He was JuBt ns merci
less and cruel as his rise to fortune
was sudden and spectacular. Tho one
soft spot in his heart was for Dolly,
and her request for an Imported car
of fabulous horsepower and an in
structor in its ways and tricks of loco
motion, was granted readily. Tho roc
ognltion of struggling young Arnold
had been the one request against
which tho old broker had hardened his
heart. Tho lnfluenco of a young man,
well likod for his personal qualities, Is
sometimes as far reaching as that of
nn old man well munitioned with gold,
and Arnold had experienced no diffi
culty in landing tho place as instructor
!n auto driving to the beautiful Dolly
Leonard.
Arnold had no chance to stop from
tho car after It had stopped. His heart
warmed and his fnco flushed happily
nt tho suddenness with which Dolly
threw open the doors and almost ran
to tho curbing in response to the
"honk, honk" of tho horn. Dolly had
admitted her love for him when Ar
nold had first poured forth his story
of his passion for her; and she was
not ashamed to show that she had
been awaiting him Just as eagerly as
he had whisked tho big car along over
tho boulevards. It was the lesson in
love, all the better for the subterfuge
and evasion of authority, which ap
pealed to the girl, not tho dry, techni
cal explanations of this and that part
of the steering gear, through tho lm
partatlon of which Arnold waB sup
posed to be earning the dollars of her
father.
Dolly was ravishing in her auto tog
?ery. Tho carelessly drawn veil hid
Just enough of tho pink ear nearest
the begoggled Arnold to make him
long to press his lips Just below it,
a desire which Imperiled both occu
pants of the car a3 they sped along.
Incidentally, Dolly learned that such a
thing as a clutch existed somewhere
about the brightly now machlno and
HxpI certain twists of the wheel did
certain nlngs; pjsothnjthe gear box
wasn't under the hood. Sh s30n for
got even theso Yaguo intimations of
thochanfcal knowledge upon the part
Df her lover. Dut tho things she did
siot forgot were tho long, sweet silences
following short, half whispered sen
tences as Arnold brought the machlno
'o a snail's pace along the cool coun
ry roads and slipped one arm around
licr waist and half up about her shoul
der so that sho might lean her head
Moro to his,
'ontinued. It was not until in the
jplendid nutumn that the Count Rlvoll
put In hlB appearance, In search of
somo fair American girl with whom
tvent a handsome dot to repair tho
Inanclal standing of his family.
With the advent of the Italian, Im
pecunious as his rival, Arnold's pains
and pangs began. Tho evident pleas
nro evinced by Leonard poro in having
i nobleman as a suitor In his daugh
er's train acted not ns a balm for tho
wounds of the young broker. It was
bad enough for him to know that it
was tho Count Rlvoll who almost
nightly enjoyed the hospitality of the
Leonard mansion or occupied a seat
(n a box besldo the charming Dolly,
without having Insult added to injury
by the presence of tho Italian fortune
looker as one of tho motoring party.
As the afternoons passed In speeding
over the roadB, with Arnold bound by
the restrictions which surround ordi
nary chauffeurs, while the Count sat
snuggled up with Dolly and insisted
upon murmuring his tender speeches
for her coxb alone, the situation be
came almost unbearable to tho Ameri
can. At times the muscles In his
shoulders became taut and strained
against the power of his self restraint,
ns somo few words of the Italian's
reached his ears.
Once, when nivoli took It upon him
self to glvo tho orders for tho party
In a tono and manner insulting to even
tho most regularly employed chauffeur,
it was a hurried, surreptitious touch
on his arm from Dolly's slender ringers
that kept him from striking out with
his clinched hand and knocking the
arrogantly sneering foreigner to the
ground. He seldom caught a word
with Dolly now since her titled suitor,
under parental sponsorship, had mo
nopollzcd her ovory leisure hour. Dolly
cared not n whit for the Count; she
liked his companionship even less; but
tho workings of the young lady's mind
were many and Involved and ehe knew
where was drawn the lino over which
she must not step In openly opposing
tho wishes of her father.
It was Count Rlvoll who proposed
motoring to tho Inn far out along the
lako shoro, supping there and return
ing lato by moonlight. To Dolly, psy
chologically, wns convoyed tho Ital
ian's Intention to put his futuro happi
ness or financial Btandlng to the
tost; Arnold had become too grumpy
and saturnino to bo open even to the
most openly Intimated purpose upon
the part of his rival. Self aggrandize
ment was not tho least important topic
to which, Rlvoll devoted hie musjenji
volco and captivating accent. Tho Ital
ian waa a splendid talker, when his
words reached only tho oars of wom
en, and with an air of modesty cloak
ing his utterances, ho contrived to
dwoll at length and at all times upon
his herolo achievements. According
to tho Count Rlvoll, the courage of tho
Count Rlvoll know no bounds; for
Mces Doll-co ho would daro any dan
ger, go to any length to win a smllo
from her lips. So It was as tho throe,
Dolly, tho Count and Arnold, Bpcd
back over tho roads, whlto in tho soft
moonlight. Dolly had ceased to an
swer oven In monosyllables, allowing
tho Italian to run on, building up tho
pedestal upon which ho was to take
his stand.
"I am 'glad that you havo no bri
gands here, Mees Doll-oc," he was say
ing In a tono which promised remi
niscence. "But when ono comes right
down to It, It is not good to havo no
opportunities for excitement save for
dodging death In theso terrible streets
of yours. Just before I left my home
in Italy, I myself escaped doath or
capture at the hands of what you call
hold-up men. Hod I not been so
prompt and cool of action, shot ono
man whore ho stood and -put the oth
ers to flight, I would have "
A growling curse burst from .Ar
nold. He threw on tho brakeB with
grinding force and Dolly and tho
Count were abruptly huddled togeth
er by tho gear-tearing stop of tho car.
With an Impatient, oxploslvo Italian
word, Rlvoll sprang up. Suddenly,
with his fnco gone to a sickly pallor,
his Jaw dropping till his mouth gaped
open, ho sank back weakly upon tho
cushions.
"Ah-ah-ah-nh " ho mumbled unintel
ligibly, and then sat in quaking al
ienee. "Como on there, tho three of you
up with your pawB!" came tho rasp
ing command. Threo men, the weird
moonlight making their faces pale
where they showed below the masks,
stopped close to tho wheels of the
panting car. . .
RIvoll's hands went weakly trem
bling above his head. Dolly in quiet
fear, nover taking her eyes from Ar
nold's profile, showing as he half turn
ed, obediently raised her daintily
gloved hands. Arnold fumbled for a
moment somewhere about tho car,
and then too shot up his arms.
A terse order Bent two of the men
to the sides of Arnold and the Count.
The leader turned his attention to
Dolly. The girl obodiently stripped
off her gloves. For the first time sho
seemed to notice Rlvoll nnd a glanco
of contempt was his share.
Tho first bright ring came off with
out difficulty, but the second brought
forth an oath and a cruel wrench. In
voluntarily a little cry escaped from
between Dolly's clenched teeth.
Quick as a flash Arnold's hand camo
down; quicker still he turned back to
where tie leader tugged at tho girl's
delicate fingers, Tho cry of warning
from ono of the men in the whlto
rad came too late. The girl remem
berod over after tho flerceneps of the
cold rago In Arnold's face. The heavy
wrench flashed up bright In the moon
light and then came crashing down.
The leader sank down without a
groan. With a feeling of Bickenlng
revulsion Dolly heard the cry of at
most feminine terror that escaped Rl
voll'a lips.
Arnold wns out in the road now,
grappling desperately. Ho tore him
self free and sont one of his assail
ants spinning to the macadam. As
tho two fled, ono paused a moment in
tho shadows. Thorc was u vicious re
port and Arnold clutched weakly at
tho air as ho turned sick from the
shock. Then his knees buckled under
him and he sank down In a huddled
heap.
It was Dolly who bore the greater
part of tho burden of lifting the wound
ed man and propping him up on tho
cushions In the tonneau. Her hands
were tho ones that held tho wheel In
the mad ride back to tho city. To po
licemen who signaled her to Blow up
the girl gavo a significant nod toward
tho unconscious man beside her in tho
front seat and let out another notch.
When Arnold awoko, ho wondered
for a moment at his surroundings. 'A
pressure of bomething soft In his hand
and a suspicious wetness on the back
of his fingers cleared away tho clouds.
With a smile hiding tho shooting pain
In his shoulder, ho turned his head till
his eyeB could feast on Dolly. Neither
cared to speak. Arnold understood
that sho had brought him homo, to
her home.
"A-a-ahem'" broke In tho pompous,
warning cough of "Old Hull" Leonard.
Arnold tried to froo his hand; but
Dolly held to It with gentlo firmness.
Her father pretended not to see.
"Something of a flghtor; yes, some
thing of a fighter," rumbled tho volco
of Lconnrd pero, and ho actually
smilod down upon the nntonlshed Ar
nold. "Young man, I am looking for fight
ers to aid mo," ho rumbled on. "I
need young blood to braco up the old
In my struggles. But, of course, you
will not be fit for some time. Take
your tlmo, my boy, tako your tlmo."
With an absence of his habitual
frown, ho Ignored tho creeping of Dol
ly's other hand Into Arnold's free one
and walked quietly from the room,

MUST KEEP STRAIGHT FACE
Indoor Pastime In Which No One Is
Allowed to Smile or Laugh Dur
ing Progress of Game.
This Is a game In which no ono Is
allowed to smile nnd laugh. All the
playerB, except one, sit in a row or
half-clrclo, ono goes out of tho room
and returns with a stick or poker In
his hand, and a grave nnd solumn
face. He is supposed to havo Just re
turned from a visit to Buff.
The first player asks him: "Where
do you como from?"
"From Buff."
The next asks: "Did ho say any
thing to you?''
To which the reply Is:
"Buff said 'Baff."
And gave me this staff.
Telling me neither to smile or to
laugh.
Buff soys 'Baft' to you all his men,
And I Bay 'Baff to you again.
And ho neither laughs uor smiles,
In Bplto of all your cunning wiles,
But carries his face with a very good
grace,
And passes his staff to the eiy next

If he can repeat all thin without
laughing he delivers up his staff to
somo one else, and takes his scut;
but if he laughB, or evtn smiles, he
pays a forfeit before giving It up.

NOT SO MUCH CHANGE
EXPERIENCES OF TWO WOMEN
WHEN THEY MOVED.
Each Found They Had Done Whole
Lot of Unnecessary Worrying as
to How Their Furniture Was
Going to Look.
"I moved In tho summer," remark
ed a Brooklyn woman. "I didn't move
very far, but It makes a great differ
ence. I moved from tho rather
cramped and semi-dark first floor of
our apartment up to the top floor,
flooded with sunlight and swimming
In fresh air. Now, Just boforo I
moved ono of my best friends camo
to see mo a woman with whom I'm
so Intimate that sho and I nover hesi
tate to say to one another exactly
what wo think. 'I suppose you're go
ing to buy a lot of now furnlturo.
When you get theso old things of
yours up into that sunshlno abovo
thero and spread out Into so much
moro space you will boo how shabby
and Inadequato it all la and you'll
havo to replnco It.'
"Now, I was rather fond of my old
furniture and I didn't at all relish tho
Idea of losing It or of spending tnonoy
for now.
"I moved. Then another lntlmato
friend called to see mo. Sho looked
around at all my things with their
very souls visible in tho bright now
light and all spread out conspicuous
ly ns they nover had had to bo down
bolow In tho smaller apartment. As
I waited for moro criticism sho turn
ed to mo beamingly and said: 'How
flno your furnlturo looks up hero. It
has a chnnco to bo shown right. I
novor realized how well it looked
down in that little apartment whero
you didn't havo room to display it
and whero it was too dim to let any
one approclato It. It makes all tho
dlffcronco in tho world to bring it out
Into tho good sunshlno.'
"Isn't that dollciouB?"
"It Is," answered ono of her boar
ors. "I had an experience similar to
It earlier In tho year, and I think
women who contomplato moving to
larger quarters and dread tho cxpenso
of a lot of now furnlturo should know
of it. Wo maved from a tiny, narrow,
ugly house in a row to a big detached
house. In tho old placo tho furnlturo
looked shabby and Inartistic and wo
woro nlwnyB dissatisfied, though wo
knew it had cost a good deal In tho
beginning. It had to bo put In stiff
rows, becauBO there would havo boon
no room for us to walk around, other
wise Tho cumbersome pieces wo had
brought from tho big houso wo had
originally lived in looked hideous.
Tho place wo woro moving to looked
so much larger that overyono said wo
should have to buy quantities of
things to fill It. My husband, oven,
wanted to sell most of our 'old truck,'
ns ho called It, and start In brand
now, but I convinced him that wo
could not possibly afford that, so wo
furbished things up as well no possi
ble, closed our eyes as they wero re
moved, and then sot about fixing tho
now houso.
"Tho first thing wo discovered was
that wo had enough. Thoro woro
things for every room. I roveled In
spreading out, for a chango, and found
I could mnko tho stiff-looking old
fashioned artlclo tako on new airs of
attraction and fit comfortably into

money I should mako many improve

big sunny rooms ovorythlng wo for

than over it did beforo. And positive
ly all wo havo had to buy has been a.
couplo of chairs that wo had been. In
