THE LOST UMBRELLA
She was young, tall dignified
and well dressed, and as she 'en
tered the elevated train and de
murely slipped into the only va
cant seat Wagstaff , covertly watch
ing her over the edge of his news
paper, decided that she was a rare
He kept taking one more look
at the girl; her attention being
centered upon a book. By the time
the train reached the station he
was deeply interested in her. He
vaguely remembered having seen
her on his morning train at inter
vals, but never before had she sat
within the direct range of his vi
sion. The next morning he took
special pains to catch that same
train. Miffin was sitting r.ear the
door of the car and dragged him
into a seat beside him. However,
Wagstaff losl all interest in Mif
in s baseball chatter as the train
neared the station where the girl
had entered on the previous morn
ing. He craned his neck to scan
the waiting passengers on the p at
fonn. Miffin looked at him curi
ously. "Expecting somebody to get on
here?" Miffin asked.
"Oh, no," Wagstaff said hastily.
"I thought I saw some one I
Then, to his unmeasured de
light, the girl came demurely in
with the crowd and found a suit
almost opposite them. Miffin fol
lowed Wagstalf's enraptured
"Is that the party you thought
you knew?" he asked.
"Well, no," Wagstaff said guil
tily, "but I wouldn't mind."
Aftei that it got to be a regular
thing every morning for Wagstaff
to watch for the girl and then to
steal glances at. her all the way to
his station. She looked at him so
cilmly in gazing around the car
dav after day that he thought des
paringly that she didn't know lie
was on earth.
Just then he was losing hope of
ever getting acquainted with her
something happened. One morn
ing she got off at a station which
the train reached before it arrived
Wagstaff's. More than that, Wag
staff saw a long handled umbrella
resting against the window frame
of the that she had just left.
."What shall I do?;; the young
man asked himself. "Shall I take
hqr umbrella with me for sate
keeping, or shall I turn it in at
the lost and found office? In either
case ' '
With a fast beating heart he
possessed himself of the forgotten
umbrella. On mature considera
tion he decided that it would be
best to turn it into the company
in the usual way and take a chance
on future favorable developments.
A week later the developments
came. On a wind-swept elevated
platform one evening, several sta
tions distant from the one nearest
his office, Wagstaff found himself
alone with the girl.
For an instant her glance linger
ed, and there was a sort of recog
nition in it as their eyes met. Wag
staff acted on the .moment's im
pulse, all the hero in his makeup
coming to the front.
"I beg your pardon," he said,
advancing a step, hat in hand,
"hut did you recover the umbrella
yoiv left on the train a few days
ago? I turned it in at the lost and
found department "
She started a little with surprise
as he spoke, and, then she smiled
graciously. Why, yesthauk you,"
she said. "I I got it. Was it you
who found it? It was awfully good
"Not at all." declared Wagstaff.
Just then the train came in and
he. helped her aboard. Thev sat
down together and their acquaint
In ten minutes he found that she
knew half a dozer, of his own
friends. While things were a little
bit unconventional, she concluded
finally that he might call.
Wagstaff called and found two
of the friends there to vouch for
him. Then he took pains to call
again, when he was certain the
friends wouldn't be there. Since
the girl chose the time for the call
it is possible that she didn't want
them there either.
Two or turee niontns later as
she and Wagstaff were standing
in her front hall one night count
ing the hooks on the hatrack and
otherwise enjoying themselves, the
eirl said: "Billy, I've heard of a
lot of ways that young men get
acquainted with girls they want to
meet, but that umbrella plan o
yours makes a nit witn me every
time I think of it."
"What do you mean?" Wagstag
asked a bit feebly,
"Why, vou innocent child,"
she said, stnilinor, "I never lost
my umbrella on the elevated train!"
