Salllo Mnrehnll went to Ul llnnk
for her vacation almost entirely bo
liuiso Frank KwIiik wan there. To
tier friends In the olllees of tho Ameri
can Opera Chair company alio sold that
sho felt tho ciulet of Uio place to bo
what Hho moHt needed. In point of
fact, however, what ohe most needed
was tho lovo of tho young bookkeeper
who had dropped his pen a week be
foro with tho avowed Intention of nw
UcntliiK at Ited Dank.
Tho ordinary, sensible woman of thirty-two,
which was tho exact urc of
Miss Marshall, probably would not
havo sympathized with her much con
cernlnc this requirement. UwIiik was
Just twenty-eight, and his "irray mat
tor" was not Kray because of maturity
or overexertion. He was exceedingly
good looking, exceedingly tall and
broad and debonair, and these virtues
had appealed at once to little Miss
Marshall, whoso eyes were accustomed
to urayness of mind and of other
Ewlng liked Miss Marshall, too, In a
patronizing sort of fashion, his regard
having been deepened considerably by
tho discovery that hIic was mistress
of "double entry" mid not at all averse
to double labor. Ills affection never
melted Into words, and It was sufll
clcntly adjustable to permit of being
put quite out of tho way when Its pos
sessor met so fluffy and alluring a per
son as Nellie Cnmith.
"Frank Hwlng's gono with your girl
again," Miss Marshall heard an Idler
remark bautcrlngly to another as she
climbed the steps of tho Qlobo hotel.
Sho stopped to fumble n handkerchief
out of her bag.
"Who? Nellie Carruth?" Inquired the
youth addressed. "Looks as If I was
cut out, doesn't It?"
That ho was not tho only Individual
"cut out" Miss Masliall learned Im
mediately upon tho return of the pair.
Fluttering about tho piazza, sho dis
cerned them at tho end of tho street,
the bookkeeper hanging on the words
of his companion as no amount of mere
appreciation of wisdom ever made man
hang on tho words of woman. Ew
lng was greatly embarrassed, too, when
he saw Miss Marshall, although she
tried to seem uninterested alike in his
presence and In his attention to the
blue frocked girl to whom he present
Kwlng was acting qulto within his
rights, sho told herself later, obeying
the Impulso that bndn her Justify him
even to herself. Mo had mado no pact
with her, ut least no verbal pact, and
sho knew that few men recognized the
validity of unspoken contracts. Why
should a fine, strong fellow whoso life
was before him be tied to a neutral
tinted woman who already realized
that her future was to bo only her past
stripped of Its Illusions? If Frank
Kwlng wanted to marry Nellie Carruth
It wasn't any of her business.
Nevertheless whllo presenting an im
perturbable front to that part of tho
world located at Ited Dank sho suffered
keenly tho next few days. Miss Car
ruth and her widowed mother occupied
a cottago near the river, and between
walking, riding and boating she and
her new admirer were together almost
constantly. Ewlng glanced at Miss
Marshall once or twice, assured him
'If that she didn't care and was glud
that he had not committed himself.
Uwing vt as not u bad sort of a man; he
was Just a man.
This was the state of affairs when u
Dre at tho CurruUi cottage upset Red
Dank and permitted to Uio bookkeeper
a display of courugo which seemed to
write "flnls" to his romanco. The blaze
broke out at dead 'of night and gained
such headway In tho front part of tho
dwelling that there appeared scant
probability that tho two Inmates could
be rescued. Ited Hank's volunteer flro
brigade propped Its ladders against tho
voranda before tho bedroom windows,
but very wfscly refused to mount them
through tho blast furnace of the blaz
ing porch. Hwlng went up one of them
like a toy monkey on a stick and car
ried both women to places of safety.
Miss Marshall, who thought It risky
to be umong tho spectators at a flro,
did not witness tills deed, but sho
heard of It, and her heart swelled with
pride. She had known all along that
Kwlng was capable of Just such hero
Ism. Forgetting her previous reserve,
nho hastened to congratulate him,
bringing up speechless and tearful be
fore the couch on which he lay nursing
u bandaged burn on his cheek.
This burn, tho result of contact with
a falling brand, kept tho bookkeeper
wrapped In darkness and oil silk for a
fortnight. Ills right eye had been en
dangered and had to be treated care
fully. Miss Marshall forfeited a con
siderable amount of salary and remain
ed at lied Dank. Rho really was need
ed nftcr Mlns Carruth, to whom tho
tire soon became only an Impersonal
occurrence which mado good material
for story telling, found a rowboat
shared with her earlier admirer rather
preferablo to a (Huffy room shared with
her later suitor and the odor of iodo
form. The Injured man missed her greatly
and Inquired of Miss Marshall concern
ing her. Miss Marshall, with bravery
In the femlnlno gender of that which
ho exhibited at the Are, replied that
sho supposed Miss Carruth much occu
pied with getting furniture for her now
"Her now cottago?" oxclatinod Hw
lng, "I may be Interested in that my
lolf somo day."
Miss Marshall trlod'lo change tho
"She's a brick!" tho convalescent
went on. "Pretty aH n picture too.
Don't you think she's pretty, Miss Mar
iball7" Miss Marshall did.
Hho concluded Unit Miss Carruth wan
something better than pretty when nho
witnessed her first meeting with Kwlng
after tho bandages had been taken
from his face. The brnnd had penciled
V Indelible mark of scared scarlet
From his forehead to his throat. Miss
Carruth gavo vent to nn abbreviated
bc renin when she flaw It and then,
Diasterlng herself, grasped the victim's
hond flrmly. "I didn't realize," she
laid, "how much you had done for me."
Manifestly Miss Marshall had been
onjust In considering her n mere doll.
One evening soon after, however,
when she was sitting at her window,
looking Into the mist of her life, Rho
was given reason to resurrect her first
opinion. Kwlng and Miss Carruth were
seated below, nnd Kwlng wan propos
ing marriage. The woman upstairs
knew Unit sho ought not to listen, but
her breath wan quivering In her throat,
and nho could not move awny to save
"Don'tl" MIbs Carruth wan urging
when her voice flrst became audible.
"Don't. Frank I Please don'tl"
"But why?" he persisted. "I lovo
you. Until this moment I wan sure
that you loved me."
"I did!" cried the girl. "Oh, I did un
Ul You mustn't ever ask mo to mar
"Why?" repeated Kwlng. Tho repeti
tion was determined. "I think I have
earned the right to a reason."
"That Is the reason!"
"What?" Tho word wan spoken
sharply, like a military command.
Miss CarruUi quailed.
"What what happened when you
earned the right? Oh, I know I'm hor
rid! I know I'll be nshamed all tho rest
of my life. But your check! I
couldn't bear to look nt that near."
"Ohl" said Kwlng.
"If It hadn't been for mo you
wouldn't havo been burned," Miss Car
ruth went on, sobbing almost hysteric
ally. "I realize Uiat I'm norry; Indeed
I'm sorry! Won't you say you forgive
"Yes," nald Kwlng. "It's not your
fault. I've Just been a fool, I seo It
now. I'm going away tomorrow."
"And you won't think too harshly of
Ewlng rose, and Miss Marshall
heard him push back his clmlr. "I'll
try not to think of you at nil," he an
swered. "I'll try to remember a lltUo
woman who ban never forgotten me.
Her love wns too fine for me to com
prehend at flrst, but somehow I seem
to understand It now."
Then two sounds broko the stillness
of the night. Frank Kwlng had gono
Into the hotel, slamming the door after
him, and Sallio Marshall, fainting for
the flrst tlrao In her life, had fallen to
Competent, but Unprejudiced.
In tho course of the year Parson
Whltaker received many calls to mar
ry, christen and bury In the villages
round Canby, so It often happened Unit
his services were required In families
of which ho knew HtUe more than the
name of the person on whoso behalf
he was to olllclate.
One day ho was summoned to n lone
ly farm to perform tho burial service.
On arriving there after somo vicissi
tudes ho was met by a forlorn looking
man who was evidently In charge of
"Aro there relatives left whom I
should mention," tho minister asked,
"and Is tliero any special point of
which I should speak?"
"No, there weren't any real points
about Abner SHimders," bald the man
slowly. "I guess I'm an unprejudiced
Judgo, and I should Bay there weren't.
As for relatives, there's no one loft but
an aged brother. I guess you'd better
mention him. 'Twould kind of please
him. You might say that he's nlwuys
done his best and that 'twas a great
privilege for tho deceased to have him
near by at tho last."
"Certainly I will do so," said Parson
Whltaker cordially. "I suppose from
what you say Uio aged broUier has had
more or less trouble In tho past."
"Ho's had his trials," said the man
When tho sorvlco was over tho mln
Istor Btopped toward bis Informant
"I didn't seo tho aged broUier," ho
said In n low tone. "Is ho In tho house?
Tic might like to havo me speak to hlm
before I go."
"I'm the aged brother," said tho tor
lorn man, holding out u limp hund.
An Alnruilnw Symptom,
"Patients often havo such absurd
IdoaH about Uilngs!" sighed tho doctor
In charge of tho tuberculosis division
of tho hospital, says the New York
Tribune. "Now, Uiere's tho subject of

XIo had been on an egg und milk diet,
