SPIDER WEB j
A Story of a Labyrinth
By CLARISSA MACKIE $
It was a June evening. The old
Douphton mnnsion was untbed In tho
light of the rising moon, which Hooded
the old fashioned garden and snowed
the undent maze cnllcd "the pplder
vveb." In the very center of the uuii-.e.
the spot so difficult to attain, some
thing white gleamed.
Molly Dotighton was Mnnding there
pleking the grent white bride ro?es i!i:it
formed a snowy pyramid In the tun
ter of the spider web.
1 hastened down the path whi: h lerl
to one of the ninny entrances to tiiU
puzzling maze formed of trimly out
hedges of boxwood. Its exact nge I
did not know, but it wns very old.
"Who Is that?" cnlled Molly aero
"Jack." I answered. "Stay when
you are, Molly. I'm coming after you.'
"It you can." she laughed fsnjly
"HUBBY, JACK t" 8HB BBXATBED BOFTLI.
"Stephen says be can thread the maze
also. Shall it be a race 7"
"Come on. Jack," he urged.
"And the victor receives a bunch of
bride roues," declared Molly from the
"What Is a bride rose compared to
a bride?" demanded Stephen argu
mentatlvely. "For my part I'd rather
"Don't be too fussy over your re
ward." interrupted Molly coolly. "Noth
ing is lovelier than roses In June, and
if you don't care for the trophy you
needn't enter the contest"
"I'm glad to take a chance on any
thing you offer. Miss Molly." cried Ste
phen hastily. "Confound this spider
web. This makes three times I've
come out at the very place 1 started
"Same here!" I complained bitterly.
"Is there any time limit on this race.
"Of course! When the clock strikes
12 everything and everybody vanishes
like magic!" ,
"Good for me!" crowed Stephen sud
denly. "I didn't return that time. I'm
getting ahead some!"
I was swearing softly to myself, for
I was starting again for the fifth time.
I could see Stephen plugging away
ahead of me, and I knew he was near
lug the goal of desire. I felt that I
must battle with him if he carried off
the bunch of white roses that Molly
was plucking for the victor.
Again I started bravely forth, keep
ing my eyes away from Molly, and so
I, like Stephen, passed by the fateful
turning and entered one of the inner
circles of the web nearer the center.
"I'm a spider," declared Molly. "You
are flies, of course. I shall put to death
the one that comes within my reach!"
"Happy death!" murmured Stephen
"Foolish fly!" Jeered Molly.
I was silent Somehow this race was
a matter of life and death to me. I
felt that If I reached Molly's side first
the victory might prove an opening for
me to say something important to her
to declare my love. It needed moon
light and June magic to bolster up my
courage, for 1 was fearfully afraid of
women and of Molly Doughton In par
ticular. If only Stephen Drake had not beeu
But be was tbere and a formidable
obstacle, for now we were in the same
box bordered path with Molly several
yards beyond us.
At that moment she appeared to me
to be the unattainable.
"Which roud do you take. Jack?" de
manded Stephen genially.-
I looked up to see that there was
choice of two paths to take now. This
wns the most difficult turning of all.
If one chose the wrong turning here
he might go back to the outer edge of
the web and have to begin all over
I J U-i-
agnin. Of course the right turn wonlo
bring one nearer to the center.
Once when I was a boy Molly's
brother Torn and I hnd spent a nipht
In that wretched spider's web. We
had essayed to thread Its Intricacies nt
twilight and had become lost within
its mazes. Too proud spirited to call
for dellvorence, we had wandered
n round and around until, tired out. wc
fll asleep to awaken on the outer ediie
of the web with our indignant relatives
bending over us. Since then I had re
fused to enter its mysteries.
Tonight, however, with Molly stand
ing In the center, the prospect was al
luring. If Stephen Drake hnd not been
there! But he was there and much In
"Which road do you take. Jack?" he
I looked at the two openings. The
inner one appeared to lend to the goal
and yet might traitorously land me
without the web. The outer one might
lead me by devious ways to Molly.
Something drew my eyes to the
ground, nnd there in the narrow way
between the box rows I saw white
rose petals scattered. They drifted
here and there along the ground like
vagrant flakes of snow, nnd they led
to the outer opening. My vein of senti
ment prompted me to choose to follow
the rose petals nnd abide by whatever
fate they dealt out to me.
"I'll take the outer way," I said and
stepped past him into a path where
more petals flecked the way.
Stephen chose tho Inner opening that
circled nearer to Molly and apparently
led directly to her side. My heart al
most stopped beating at the eight of
Stephen drawing so close to Molly
my Molly, I cried In my heart.
, "Jack," Molly called out wns there
a note of nnxlety In her sweet voice
"you are standing still!"
"Coming!" I called lustily, and start
ed anew on my pace over the white
It was singular that they should lead
so persistently along the path. My
heart beat faster. I was drawing
nearer the goal!
Stephen was abend of me. though.
All at once I heard a groan of dis
gust from his direction and saw him
bearing away on an ever widening
"Going home?" I called out,
"Looks like It." he grunted. "What
would happen if I Jumped over these
hedges and landed beside you, Molly?"
"You'd be out of the game," declared
"Not fair!" I called.
"It's a tedious journey," complained
Stephen as his path drew him away
from us. "I've worn out a pair ol
shoes already, and If 1 had measured
the distance why, I have walked miles
"Isn't it worth the goal?" challenged
"Yes, Indeed 1 Coming back now.
Molly!" he called out more cheerfully.
There I was plodding away, follow
ing those rose petals along the nar
row paths of the maze. Sometimes
they led away in a wide circuit from
the center and quite discouraged me
from ever reaching Molly. Again they
brought me so close to Molly that I
could smell the sheaf of white rose she
held in her arms.
I compared the maze to Molly her
selfsometimes approachable, some
times distant and puzzling nnd I had
been for months striving to thread the
maze of her moods and reach her
heart Even now I did not dare think
what tho outcome of my daring ques
tion would be.
All at once Stephen gave a whoop of
"I'm on the right track now," he bel
lowed Joyfully. "This is a cinch.
I paused to watch him. I was not
far from Molly. It would not take
many more turnings for me to reach
her provided the rose petals still point
ed the way. Who had lost them Mol
Stephen was hastening through the
aisles of the maze with astonishing
speed. It certainly looked as though
be had solved the secret From the
house came tbe sound of a plana Mol
ly's sister. Sylvia wiis playing Chopin
"I'm coming, Molly," panted Stephen
as he approached.
Then Molly's voice, low and anxious,
drifted across the intervening rows of
"Hurry, Jack!" she breathed softly.
I hurried; nay, I fairly galloped
around the circle, following those
blessed rose petals to tbe center of the

denly gone astray and led him out Into
the midst of the herb garden.
"Good night, greedy sipider!" he call
ed back to Molly. "I'm -going to soothe
myself with music."
"Good night, happy 113'!" teased Mol
ly. But her sweet voice- trembled, for
now that Stephen had a?ono to Sylvia
she and I were alone in the garden
alone in the spider web!.
Only a few rows of boxwood sep
