Dorothy llroekwny ran gnyly up the
stops to the first class passenger conch
as It stood In tho Richmond depot
"Tn, tat" nho cnlled gayly to a big
fellow who stood beside the conch. "By
by, Teddy," nnd with n pretty little
movement alio blew n klaa to tho wait
ing man, then disappeared within the
door of the train.
Tho man lifted his hat solemnly.
Then he strode awuy with a quiet, hurt
look In his eyes, not even waiting to
sec tho merry face that peered out of
the window as the train panted and
puffed out of the station.
"Oh, brace up, Morrison! This won't
do. There's no use making a mute of
yourself for any fool girl who doesn't
hnlf appreciate you."
"You don't know anything about It!"
And Terry Morrison walked off, leaving
the man who had been trying to cheer
him up standing where he was, a llttlo
chagrined and a bit sorry for tho big
As the train whizzed pyt the out
skirts of the city Dorothy Drockwny
stretched out her arms and drew a
deep sigh of relief.
"Free, free, freel" she breathed in a
passionate whisper and leaned bnck In
the seat with a wonderful smile In her
eyes and deep, Joyous satisfaction per
meating her whole being. "No more
mnmrnasl No more Teddy! No more
chaperons! No more tea parties!" she
went on. "Just fun and work and do
us I please and be bohemlan. Oh, bow
1 hate it all! Mamma's conventionali
ties! Teddy's bossing dear old Ted I
How broken up he looked" And some
of the merriment faded from her eyes.
It was dusk as her train steamed Into
Jersey City and the tall skyscrapers on
Purk row were sending forth a million
twinkling lights that streamed over the
water. Dorothy looked about her a lit
tle bewildered, but made her way hur
riedly to the gates, followed by a fat
porter who carried her grips. Through
the bars she spied a smiling pair of
eyes, nnd Corlnne Morrison came to
meet her with an amused look on her
"You dear little Idiot," said Corlnne
as she kissed her and led the way to
the ferryboat. "You absurd little
greenlc! Why on earth did you leave
my good and glorious brother to come
up to this seething caldron? Why
didn't you' stay at home and marry
him and get supported for the rest of
"Connie," said Dorothy severely, "you
don't know what It Is to be bossed and
bossed and bossed. I want to bo bohe
mlan." There was a queer little light In Co
rlnne' s eyes as she nnswered: "All
right, dear, we'll begin right away.
Come, we'll take a street car Instead
of n cab. It wouldn't be bohemlan to
tnkc a cab, you know. Bohemians are
nll poor. I'm a bohemlan."
"Hut but all these bags!" And Dor
othy looked helplessly at the pile of
leather satchels beside her.
"They nrcn't bohemlan either." And
Corlnne relentlessly led tho way to the
ear, tugging two satchels, while Doro
thy followed helplessly with the rest
Three-quarters of an hour lator they
were wearily climbing the stairs to
Corlnnc's studio. Up one long. night,
up two, up three! Dorothy sat down In
n heap on tho dirty floor to rest.
"Connlo, Is your studio In heaven?"
"Yes, when I sell anything. Como
along, glrlyj you'll get there. It merely
requires perseverance." And one more
flight brought the two to a battered
door In a dirty hall, smelling of mold
and dampness. Corlnne took out her
latchkey and unlocked the door.
"Oh, how glorious!" sighed Dorothy,
"to carry your own latchkeyl"
"DcIIghtfull" And Corlnnc's voice
was a bit Ironical.
Just three weeks later Dorothy rolled
over wearily In her automatic combina
tion bed and folding couch that did
duty by day as an "oriental corner"
with a lot of gaudy pillows piled upon
"Connie," she said tragically, "do you
know Just how much money I have
between me nnd the cold, cold world?
Just $101 And I haven't sold a single
thing I've written, and, Connie, Is there
anything else in Dohemla beside work
and disappointment and editors who
won't se you?"
"Yes," said Connie doubtfully, "I be
lieve there are the Hungarian restau
runts. You need cheering up, glrly.
We'll do a Hungarian restaurant to
night I'll telephone two of tho boys
from Park row to meet us Bomewhere,
und we'll go to Martinetti's."
"Meet ub? Meet us? Can't Uiey call
for us here?"
"Why, no," and Corlnne turned re
proachful eyes on Dorothy. "They are
newspaper men, you know, nnd enn
only steal an hour or bo from tho office.
Besides, that would bo awful conven
tional. No, not that low cut frock,
goosle. Pick out- your plainest shirt
waist If you're going slumming with
Dorothy set her teeth firmly and
smiled away tho little frown that had
begun to cloud her forehead.
The tweezy orchestra was playing
the latest air from a popular comic
opera as Dorothy Drockway, followed
by Corinno' and the two newspaper
men, In their morning clothes, entered
the (bird rato bohemlan cafe. The
lights flashed on a hundred women In
gaudy gown, wearing every color and
vnrlety of lint Jewels, real nnrt paste,
twinkled under the chandeliers, and
the fumes from n hundred cigarettes
rose to heaven. Koine collrgo ItnyH won
singing "Iloln ltolul" totally oblivious
of time nnd tune, nnd were pounding
on tho table with their forks In wild
appluuse nt their own Jokes.
"How do you like It?" nsked Corinno
ns they took their seats.
"It's choky," snld Dorothy iioncom
mlttatly. "What do you take?" nsked one of
the men, looking nt Dorothy.
"Why why oh, anything. I thlnl:
I'd like n chocolntc frnppe."
A loud laugh from tho other three
greeted this remnrk.'
"IJrlng us four Mnrtlnls to start
with," said Reggie Cutting to the wait
er, who wore a soiled collar nnd n cut
away. Dorothy looked nt Corlnne appre
hensively. "Are Martinis cocktails," she nsked
shyly, "because If they aro I've never
Just then one of tho college boys
arose, looked around nnd blew n kiss
toward Corinno and Dorothy.
"Ladles and gentlemen," he began,
"In the presence of a lady who has
Just declared that she never before
tasted a cocktail I blush to remark"
"Oh, oh, I'm going home this min
ute!" snld Dorothy, rising and looking
nbout her with misty eyes nnd checks
burning with mortification.
"Sit down, Dolly," whispered Co
rlnne. "He doesn't mean anything. Sit
down nnd don't notice him. Here's
That Is all that Dorothy ever re
membered of ttfat horrible evening.
The nest morning she stood before tho
washstand, miserably, towel In hand.
"Connie, Connie, this water's so cold,
and I can't And any soap, and haven't
you got anything but a tin basin to
"Other's broken," came cheerfully
from the Inner recesses of a closet.
"Oh, my head!" said Dorotliy, sink
ing down on the hard pillows of the
"fake" couch. "Oh my hend! How
could you make me drink that cock
tall und the table and everything
went around and oh, Connie, I'm sick
yet I'll never touch another nnd
whut would Teddy fiuy?"
"Oh, he'd Just be bossy nnd particu
lar about It. You'll get used to Ho
hemlu after awhllo. Are you tired of
it already?" And Corlnne glanced
oddly at Dorothy.
"I'm tired of something. My last
story came back by the post this morn
ing, declined 'with thanks,' nnd I've
tried the last place I know of for n
position on u staff. Why, thero nren't
any positions here. And everybody's
such an atom In New York, und ed
itors don't take off their hats when you
go to see them, but Just keep right on
smoking their pipes, and In their shirt
sleeves too. Oh, my hend," and Dor
othy was sobbing violently In half a
"Dorothy Brockwny, if you muss
that pillow up I'll make you pay for
It It's my best so you Just stop your
crying on It right away."
Dqrothy arose with a sudden gulp
und glared at her companion.
"You're a cold, hard hearted, coarse
person," sho 'said, with blazing eyes,
"and I'm going back home tomorrow."
Two days later Mr. Ted Morrison snt
In his office In the afternoon sunshine
looking over Uie mall which had Just
come in. His hat was pushed buck
from his forehead, showing n flno head
of curly brown hair. Ho was laughing
softly nnd reading over for the third
time two letters he hnd Just received.
The first ran tn this vein:
Dearest Teddy Meet me tomorrow at
the station, 6 p. m. I'm coming; homo for
ever and ever. New York Is the most un
interesting' place I have ever been In.
Publishers up here aren't a bit Interested
tn young talent. They seem to be anx
ious, above all things, to nip It In the bud.
Socially, New York Is dogVadlng, People
do nothing but wash In tin basins, drink
cocktails and live In attics. You dear,
darling old boyl I am Just longing to
come home and cry It all out on your coat
lapel. Your penitent DOROTHY.
The other letter was qulto different in
purport It ran thus:
Dear Ted I've done the very best I
could for you, and you owo me that $100
you promised me if I'd send her back. I
followed her about and persuaded every
publUher wfco might be Inclined to look
favorably upon her work to turn It coldly
and peremptorily down. I took her to the
meanest restaurant I know of and made
her drink a cocktail. I even persuaded
Reggie Cutting to be rude to her. All O.
K. Sho leaves In the morning. Remem
ber the hundred. Your affectionate sister,
Eliza Is an old retainer lu a certain
Philadelphia family, for whom she bus
labored many years. The children of
the family have grown to regard her
with mingled awe and fear, all but
Tom, the youngest, who is now eight
years old. In spite of her dominant
sway, says tho Philadelphia Record,
Eliza Is very unsophisticated.
Sho was horrified to learn that Tom
had discovered the whereabouts of her
wealth, for she had becu putting nwny
her savings for years and hud nbout
(000 in the savings fund.
Tom and soma of his small cronies
wanted a nickel to spend for candy,
hut all the mothers were out.
"I'll tell you what we'll do," snld
Tom. "I'll borrow 5 cents from our
Eliza. She's got lots of mouey."
"Aw," exclaimed tho Inevitable pessi
mist, "she nln't got auy money!"
"She has," replied Tom. "Sho's got
1 lot of money In a bank downtown
next to Williams' candy shop."
Eliza chanced to hear this romark,
ind she rushed out into tho ynrd, sent
the other boys home, clutched Tom by
the collar and started to read him a
lecture on tho value of prudence.
"Never tell that ngnlnl" she said ear
nestly. "Suppose a burglar bad been
round and heard you say that? Where
would I be? Why, if he knew nil that
money was there he'd go right to the
(tank, break In and sUal It!"
