On tho way back to the olllcc Jim
consoled his client. He promised to

in the country.

When Miss Elizabeth Lnngham
emerged from her coupe at 0 o'clock

in nn uproar. Malhllde, her maid, was
almost breathless. "If you pleuse,

"Hut I sent it back. It did not fit"
"Of course," said ho suavely, "that

Ono glanco satisfied Miss Langbnm.
Sho bado Mathllde bring her check

meantime you may release that vaso.
It Is hardly n tea store souvenir."
That same cvontng James Carnithers
sat In his den, reading Dante's "Infer
no." He bad finished "The Sorrows of
Werther" tho day before. At hla elbow,
still to bo perused, lay "Tho Joy of Liv
ing." Tho telephone bell Jangled twice, but
ho did not hear. At the third call he
rose from his chair. A moment later
tho volumo went speeding on Its way
across tho room.
This Is Jim's end of tho conversation
'Hcm-esent you In tho matter? Olnd
There were two Elizabeth Lang
hams. Tor fifteen years they had lived
almost side by side, nnd neither of '
them had learned of tho other's exist
ence. Throe hundred feet of mctropoll
tnn space and several hundred thou
sand dollars separated theui socially
and completely. The elder Miss Lang
ham resided near the middle of the
block In 11 plutocratic white stone mnn
fllon. At the corner of tho same street
In a modost lint bouse lived the other
Though nolther of them was nware
of tho circumstances, Uiese two pos
sessed one link in common. His par
ents knew him ns James Carruthors.
His clients nnd professional friends
called him Jack, the counselor. Miss
Innghnin knew him ns her oldest and,
ho hoped, lu best friend. Elizabeth
Langhniu knew I1I111 as her employer.
Elizabeth Langhniu often wondered
that Jim had selected her from two
dozen applicants for the position of ste
nographer In his legal establishment.
A callow graduato from a business col
logo, sho had hardly hoped to gain ac
ceptance over a score of experienced
typists. Tho truo rensou her name
sho never guessed. Still Jim lind 110
reason to regret his choice. Miss Ellm
both was neat, protty nnd bright. Jim
dictated to her dally, and she tran
scribed without nn error.
Not so Miss Langham, tho focus of
fifty bachelor aspirations. Jim tried
dictation there only once.
"Mr. Cnrrutbers," said Miss Lnngham
coldly, "you are taking u meau advan-
tano of our friendship. You havo no
right to criticise my other friends. I
am proud to number Judgo Newton
among my friends."
"But bo's ufty If he's a day," Jim
"So shall you be, Mr. Carnithers
some day. Good night."
There wrre tears after Jim had taken
his departure, but that Jim did not
know. Ho did know, however, that
Miss Langham had dismissed htm, and
he sorrowed accordingly.
"It's thnt fellow, Colonel Newton,"
ho mused. "SInco they've elected him
a Judge Elizabeth has been Indiffer

dently sounds better to her young
cars thau plain Mrs. Jimmy Carnith

the slush of a winter evening and
nnrirod his first trrpnt sorrow
Bono it wnkoUi a sympathizer.
Jimmy, blue und hopeless, became hu
manitarian In a week. Ono morning
when his stenographer, Miss Eliza
beth, showed him a court summons
which hnd been served upon her, de
manding that she pay the sum of $200
forthwith or suffer tho entry of Judg
ment for that amount, Jimmy simply
radiated consolation. "Who Is this

"I novcr heard of her," was tho re

"Whero do you Uvo?" ho Inquired.
Her reply astonished him. "No.

Whon Jrm saw that tho papers were
signed In tho name of tho Hon.
William Newton, Justice, his mind
was made up. Ho told his secretary
to have no fenr. Ho was happy to
show his appreciation of her faithful
and long continued service.
Ho tried tho case himself. Ills rival
sat on his bench and glared savagely
at him at least that Is Jimmy's re
port of the Judicial attitude.
As it happened, Mrno. Nellio was not
present in tho courtroom, having been
detained elsewhere on Jury duty
In his plnco he sent two of his as

Tho next morning Jim Informed his
stenographer gleefully that tho Mmo.

and that she might retain tho dress ns

Maggy Dnrr miih a inirseglrl in a

Maggy's mother was a widow with

yenrs old. It so happened thnt nt the
time of the girl's dlschurgc her moth

brought home from her mistress was
all the means the family possessed to
pny rent and tho doctor and buy food
nnd medicines. The consequence was
that It was more thau exhausted with
in a few days.
One night Mnggy left her sick moth
er nnd her little brother, who wns cry
ing for food, and went out with des
peration In her henjrt. She was walk
ing along the street crying when she
was stopped by a rough looking man
with the question:
"Hello, little girl! What's tho mat
ter?" Maggy gave an nccount of Ivor con
dition and the reasons for It.
"Young woman," said tho man, "If
you don't tako euro o' yourself no ono

Hut 0110 vision danced before Mag

showed her tho window and, handing
her a revolver nnd a dark lantern, told
her to uso the former if it would snvo
her from being caught. Maggy was so
beside herself with her proposed work
that sho took both mechanically, not
knowing what sho did. Entering the
houo nnd not finding anything of
vnluo In tho lower rooms, sho went up
stairs. Tho door of a bedroom stood
ajar, and bIio threw the light Into the
room. On n bed lay a girl about her

Now, beside tho bed In which tho
girl lay was an electric light button.
Tho sleeper, when Moggy had flashed

and listened, but, hearing nothing, was
about to sink to sleep aguln when sho
heard a low sob. Hunching up, sho
turned tho button, and tho room was

Tho awakened girl must havo bad a

Mnggy had no sooner disappeared un

In tho darkness, covered by the samo

Maggy, after peeping through a crack
to make suro that her tempter had gono

Tho next day tho girl Maggy hnd In
