It whs with Homo misgiving that
Wontworth took the third lloor of Mrs.
MiuiIcc'h bonne, llnd hIic not told
him tlmt hIio wiih nluioMt 1111 Invalid?
And when tho mistress of n house In
I mi Invalid I Hu had half n mind to go
back mid tell her that hu hud recon
sidered; that ho feared, after nil, that
the rooms wouldn't do. He Blackened
IiIh puce, turned, then went on. IVr
hulls things would bo nil right, hut n
fellow did so luito household discom
Un the second morning after his ur- I
rlvnl, when ho sat llko a bewildered
monarch among 11 piled up, shapeless
muss of hooks, pictures, tables and
chnlrs wondering why under heaven
ho had over acquired tliein- there eiinip
a knock nt his door. At the moment
ho wns perched upon n Htepladder,
smoking a short pipe and tnklng a rest 1
beforo ho fatigued himself by begin
ning to arrange things.
"Conic In!" ho roared, without mov- ,
lug, expecting to boo 11 norviiut. Then,
nt a slight hesitation 011 tho part of ,
tho person 11 hesitation that ho felt
rnthor than saw ho turned toward the
"Oil! All! I beg your pnrdonl" ho
apologized with nlncrlty, laying down ,
his pipe and Jumping from his perch.
"Ton hoc I'm n hit floored. I'm"
Ho pntisod rather helplessly, waiting
for his caller to explain herself, though
ho felt vnguoly tlint sho was welcome,
thought she had dropped from the ,
clouds, so frank wns her gaze, so fas- '
clnatlng tho way tho thick hair rippled
nwny from tho low, broad forehead, bo
utterly womanly her face.
"Mnnimn pent me," hIio explained. 1
"I'm Miss Mnnleo, and she thought
perhnps the maid and I might bo able
to help you out."
She looked about the room Inquiring
ly; then, as her eyes came back to tho
new lodger's blank, helpless faro, sho
caught her lower Up between her teeth,
thus holding back tho smile that strug
gled to escape.
"Have you over moved?" he asked
ruefully, surveying his belter skelter
possessions with fresh aversion, and
at tho question sho laughed out n
Inuch so Klrllsh and Infectious that I
Wcntworth laughed, too, catching for
n moment tho point of view from
which bis dilemma wns funny.
"What tho world needs," ho went on
plaintively, "Is automatic, self arrang
ing furniture furniture that, placed in
tho room, will adjust Itself and sine
Its owner all trouble."
"That's what we will have when tho
millennium conies," nnswered Miss
Manlco gayly, "but meanwhile, If you
really loathe tho task of arranging
your things and will leave It to 1110"
Sho paused questlonlngly, while
Wontworth gazed at her very much ns 1
If she were tho straw and ho tho '
drowning man. Again her face dim- J
"You wouldn't not really';" doubt
ed he, with tho shamefaced nlr of n
person who has taken a palpable Jest
"I'd Just love lt-that is, If you think
I can arrango tho room to stilt you.
You might glvo mo n general idea of
how you llko things, and"
Wontworth cut her short.
"If you can give It something of the
look of that little drawing room of
yours," ho said warmly, "I shall bo
more than BOtlsfled. Tho fact Is, you
have saved my life," ho finished can
didly. "Walt until you soo tho rooms," she
cautioned as they parted, ho to go to
his otilee with a burden off his shoul
ders and sho to confide to her mother
as sho got Into a great apron that cov
ered her from neck to ankles.
"Ho seems n nice, grateful lodger
man, mother mine. Perhaps It won't
be so hideous to have a stranger In the
hoitso nftcr all. And think of tho mop
oy!" When Wontworth opened tho door
of his sitting room that evening quick
approval flashed into his eyes. All tho
Inanlmntu objects that had huddled
together so Incongruously In tho morn
ing, 11a If there wasn't an ounco of
Belf respect among them, now faced
him with serene dignity, oneo mow
clothed In tho beauty for which he
had bought them.
Awestruck at such insight, ho passed
Into his bedroom, half fearing that
hero tho charm would bo broken, that
convenience would havo been sacri
ficed to "looks" and that ho would
have to dlvo Into a pocket nailed to tho
closet door for one slipper and then
dive again for tho other. At tho sight
of them standing openly and demurely
besldo tho fireplace Wontworth volci-d
tho highest pralso to bo spoken of wo
man. "Hloss her heart!" no said Boftly.
"Sho ought to bo a bachelor's wlfot"
During tho three mouths that fol
lowed this conviction grew more and
more fervent. Ills admiration for tho
skill with which Kthel Manlco (at oth
er times a merry, conipaiilonublo girl)
ran tho household, reducing friction to
the minimum, making life a continual
Joy, grow Into a sort of religion to him.
And It was something of this soit
that ho said to her 0110 night, scarce
knowing that ho was saying It and
adding to It a humble request that
sho marry him,
HIio looked at him oddly for 11 mo
ment. Then she laid her baud upon his
(inn and snld half kindly, half mock
ingly: "What you want Id n housekeeper,
Mr- Wontworth, not a wife." Then, n
1 ,,tt' Inoro earnestly, "I'leuso let us
. not remember." And Wcntworth. feel-
lug more discomfited than ho cnted to
ndtnlt to himself, did bis best to obey
After this life flowed smoothly on for
another six months, tho ripples closing
over the night when Wontworth was
rejected and leaving no sign,
It seemed soinef lines as If his latch
key admitted him to nnothor world
when all was order, simple beauty
mid good will, where every hour niiulc
him stronger and better. Little by lit
tie ho had become 11 part of tho small
family, often making a third In theb
oozy drawing ronm-soinotliiios talking,
sometimes rending and again scolding
or advising Kthel with the freedom of a
Ills appreciation of the delightful
liotiiliiess and case I oil hhn Into his
second blunder. It wns n blustering
night 111 November. On her couch
Mrs, Manlco, who hud been less well
than usual, lay shvplng, while Kthel,
who had been playing Schubert with
dreamy unconsciousness, wandered oil
Into some Improvisations of her own.
Presently Wontworth laid down thr
book that he was reading with an nl
most HUfToeatlng sense of the dearness
of It all. Then suddenly Kthel stopped
playing and rose from tho piano. The
action seemed significant. Wontworth
was Jarred by tho thought that Just as
abruptly might the slender thread by
which ho held this uttcfty delightful
home bo snapped. Mrs. Mnnleo might
grow worse; Kthel might
Ho gave a s'luirp sigh. Ho would not
stitTer tho thought, and again from the
fullness of his heart ho spoke.
"Kthel," ho pleaded, "Is It so Impos
sible? I can't fell you what all this Is
10 hip. How could I over get along
Hut again ho was stopped by that
odd, Impenetrable glance. Again with
11 smile, half kind, half mocking, shu
looked up at hlui and answered, "You
want 11 companion, not it wife." Again
they gravely agreed not to remember.
And soon after the Illness of a mar
ried sister called her away. The weeks
came and went, and her stay prolonged
Itself dismally, It seemed to Wont
worth, though under Mrs. Manioc's di
rection things wont on as smoothly as
usual. Apparently everything was the
same, and yet ho smarted under an In
tolerable sense of difference. All tho
creature comforts were there and pleas
ant companionship, yet the soul of
things had lld. And then suddenly ho
understood, and tho knowledge made
him strong and humble.
It was on tho evening of Kthel's ro
turn that ho found himself alone with
her for 11 fow moments.
"Dear little girl," ho said brokenly,
"I'm not asking you to marry me. I'm
not mad enough to do that again. Hut
I want to toll you this that I lovo you
with my whole heart; that I shall al
ways lovo you; that I would rather
have loved you In vain than"
Two slender arms were about hit
neck, and a soft voice was saying:
"At last, you darling, I really believe
that you want a wife."
A Willful C'a-iilnn.
Mallbritn, the singer, was an artist
who deserved her success, for her great
est triumphs came from the hardest
work. Her voice, was not a miracle of
nature. It was gold, says one of her
biographers, but 11 was gold that had
to bo dug from the earth, smelted and
made pliable under the hummer. One
day sho was overheard at her practic
ing lit gusts of angry npostropho.
"I'll see whether I cannot nuiko you
obey 1110," sho was saying to her voice.
"I'll seo whether you will obey me."
For her tho word "Impossible" did
not exist. If her voice was out of or
der or her throat refused to obey she
accomplished amazing effects by sheer
force of will. Perhaps It was fortunate
that her career was not a long 0110.
No human powers could have endured
tho strain sho placed habitually upon
this gift of hers.
One day shu executed n shake upon
the highest notes of her register. Sho
laughed then at tho amazement of her
"That brute of 11 note has given me
no end of trouble," said she. "I havo
been trying to got It for the last mouth.
I trhsl It while dressing and while I
was doing my hair. 1 tried It when I
was taking my walks and while I was
riding. -'At last I got hold of It this
morning while I was tying my shoe
strings." "And where did you llnd It, ma
dome?" "Thoro!" bIio answered, laughing and
putting her linger to her forehead.
Alt I:o1iinH,. Affair.
"It was settled some time ago that
ho was to marry my daughter," said
the father of a girl of tho period, "but
It yet remained for tho young man to
got my consent. It was merely n for
mality, however, as my girl had ar
ranged matters to suit herself without
consulting ine or my wishes.
"Now, I remembered with what trep
idation I had approached my wife's
father when I asked him for her hand,
and I made up my mind that when that
young man showed up to asli uie for
my daughter's hand I would have ro
vengo not only for what I had to pass
through when I urged my suit, hut also
for being relegated to the background
during tlio present proceedings.
"Well, ho willed at my olllco tho oth
er day, and I told my olllco boy to ud
tult him and leave us alone and seo
that wo were not disturbed.
" 'Just dropped In,' said he easily,
declining to take a seat, 'to tell yon
that I 11111 going to marry your daugh
ter on tho irith of next month. It will
bo an Informal affair, so you may con
sider yourself Invited without further
notice. Good day.'
"Hefore 1 could catch my breath ho
was gone, and when I complained to
my daughter about his treatment of
uie nil tho comfort I got was that I
could consider myself fortunitto In get
ting an Invitation, its It wits to be a
very exclusive nffalr,"
