"'C (t" 1o1 by Herbert S. so
ever heard sudh ~a. thing iittered before.
In a daze, stunned by the name
Guggenslocker-myaktlled over their
acquaintance with his own when he
-had been foiled -at-every fair attempt
to learn theirs, Lorry could only mum
ble his- acknowledgments. In all his
life he had neyer (ost command of him
self as at this moment. Guggenslocker!
"Yon lucky doy!"
He could feel the dank sweat of disap
pointment starting on his brow. A
butcher-a beer maker-a cobbler-a
gardener-all synonyms of Guggen
clocker. A sausage manufacturer's
niece-- iss Guggenslocker! Ile tried
to glance unconcernedly at her as he
took up his napkin, but his eyes wav
ered helplessly. She was looking se
renely at him, yet he fancied he saw a
shadow of mockery in her blue eyes.
'If you were a novel writer, Mr. Lor
ry, what manner of heroine would you
choose?" she asked, with a smile so
tantalizing that he understood in
stinctively why she was reviving a
topic once abandonod. His confusion
was inereased. Her uncle and aunt
were regarding him calmnly-expectant
ly, he imagined.
"I-i have no ambition to be a novel
Writer," he said, "so t have not mando a
study of haroina4."
"TBut you would have an ideal," she
"Tmn sure 1-I don't-that is, she
would p ot uncassartly be a heroine. Uni
less, of coursn, It would roquir-e hero
tonm to pose as an ideal for auch a
prosaic fellow na [."
"To begin with, you would call her
ClaraUel Montrose or something equal
ly as mpossible. You know the mnm
of a tieroine in a novel must he eu
phonious. That,is ain exactinig ru.e." It
.was an open taunt, and he could see
that s'he was entjoying his disacomture.
It arousetthis indignution and his wvits.
"I would first give nmy hero a diatin
guishmed name. No matter- whant the
hieroine's namie might t>e, lpret iy or oth
erwvise, I conld easily change it to lisA

so en'(ed the jest about a namne.
The~ orders for the dinner were givenm,
and the q-uartet sat back in their chairs
to awvait the coming of the soup. Gren
fall was still wondering howv she had
learuged his name, and was on thne
point of asktng sever-al times during
the conventtonal discussion of the
weather, the train and the mountains.
He considerately rerfreined, however,

of my uncle and aunt by telling them
that a wagon rolled off yesterday, kill
ing a man, two women and two horses.
Dear Aunt Yvonne, how troub)led you
must have been!"
"I'll confess there were times when I
thought we were rolling diown- thme
