I found Florlno by (lu ten tnblo on
the vcrttndn gnzltiK dreamily Into hot
cup. She wore my roses In the holt
of lur white gown nnd In her bronze

to nppronch Florlne without heliiR for

erwlso I Rhould linvo been Kttllty of
proposing to her. Cousldwrlng (hut hot

from me would be palpably absurd. I
sighed, nnd my sigh nrousod Florlne.
"Oh, I'm Rind It's yout" (the wild

cup." I frowned nnd took n chair on the
other nldo of the table.
"I wish you wouldn't," I Bnld.
"Wouldn't what? Give you n cup
of ten? Well, you needn't drink It.
Are you nfmld It will hurt your com
plexion?" Her tone was bantering but her
eyes hnd u hint of concern In their
violet depths. I looked nwuy ns I nn
Hwered: "The other night nt pit you turned
your chair around three times, nnd
then when you lost you nttrlbuted It to
the misplacing of your rabbit foot."
"I did make n mistake," sho sntd
gravely. "It wasn't the rabbit foot;
It was the day. Wednesday Is my un

are wenkmludod," I continued, keep
ing my gaze carefully from the danger

was compelled to glance nt her. Sho

termed n complex look. Her mouth
wns dimpled wltli smiles, her lifted
brows wcro derisive, but her eyes wore
troubled. I Ignored the eyes.
"This superstition business detracts
from your real worth," I went on re
lentlessly. "It Is tho flaw In the din

"Fly In the ointment?" Bho suggested
"To have It told around that you

Then Florlno laughed. When Florlne
"You poor old denrl" sho exclaimed
ns soon as she was able. "I don't bo

I was solid on that score, for I hnd

"Oh, don't!" she choked. "You are
too ubsurd." Then sho went off Into
another gale of laughter.
"I don't seo where tho absurdity
comes In," I retorted. "If thnt Isn't
an amulet, then what Is It?"
I supped my tea wltli dignity while
Florlne recovered herself.
"I know u girl onco who wore an

an Adonis, neither wns I afraid of
breaking tho camera, but for ono rea

"It wasn't bone, metal, stone, paper
or wood," sho went on. "And sho
didn't wear It ns a protection ngaluut

she liked It, bucauso sho liked tho man

"It wnsn't nu nmutot then," I said,
setting down my cup.
"It was an umulct," contradicted
Florlno. "Unlmnglnary folks get their

"No; I seo him nt the gnto," she
laughed, "ulthough ho may bo coming

It was clearly a dare, and I took It.

two scraps of white cloUi. I exam

When I got ho fnr I jumped up nnd
stnrtod Joyfully for Florlne's presence.
Then another Idea assailed me. Sup
pose Florlne should think that my find
ing the nmulet Influenced my declara
tion; that It was an affair uf honor, so
to speak. I tuld the locket carefully
under n small fir nnd wetit back to the
summer house. I wns scarcely seated
when Florlne came flying down tho
path, her flimsy gown floating like n
lovely white cloud around her.
"You can laugh or you can scold. I

her pretty eyes wlUi n scjuaro Inch of
law edged linen.
I neither Inughed nor scolded. I be
gan tolling her n Btory:
"Once upon n time there lived n beau

her court wns n man, neither rich nor
overwlse, but loving her, he thought,

no Imagination, and mnybe ho hnd
none, but lie saw In the Biinset gold of
the princess' hair, In every blue flower

streamlet, the music of her laughter.
Often ho criticised tho princess, al
though to him she wns perfect"
"What did ho do it for, then?" cried
"He hnd n mighty purpose."
Florlno giggled. I looked nt her bus
plclously, but rIic mndo nnother'dnb nt
her eyes, so I wont on;
"For all his hnrsh words he repented
In sackcloth nnd nshes, nnd when Uio

'Oh, no!" corrected Florlne. "He
might hnvo taken rheumatism or some
thing." Were ever eyes so blue or lips bo
sweet? I plunged ahead recklessly:
"IIo took her llttlo hnnd In hls"

his arm around her so and kissed her

"I don't know whnt tho princess did
after he-nfter Uiat," I Blghed, al
though looking nt Florlno hopefully.
"Oh, the princess said, 'I hnvo, lost
my nmulet, nnd I can novcr seo hnp

publish n decree that to him who find
eth It will I give his heart's desire.' "
"Describe tho amulet, O princess I"
"Tho decree should state that tho

Florlne'a dark lashes rested upon
very pink cheeks. She hesitated.
"I go to search for tho amulet," I an
nounced, rising. ,
She looked nt me approvingly. I
peered under tho Btep, mado two short
detours In tho direction of tho lake,
