By CECILY ALLEN
CopvrloM, 1KU, tv K. A. WMUhtad
"George Bradford, purchasing bro
ker," read tho girl, hesitating before
tho door. She extracted n tiny newspa
per clipping from her purso nud re
Wanted. A stenographer; male prefer
red. 16 Exchange place. O. D.
With trepidation sho opened tho door
and entered n small, unprepossessing
"Good morning," said Bradford, ris
ing and then Bitting down abruptly.
Buslncsx was business.
"Mr. Bradford?" asked the girl, hand
ing hliu tho clipping. "This Is your
advertisement, I bollevo."
"I I had In mind a young man," be
gan Bradford, obviously 111 at ease.
IIo had never associated with women,
cither socially or in buslnesa. In tho
latter capacity ho had strongly disap
proved of the sex; In tho former well,
ho was determined to make money first
and lovo afterward.
"Yes, 'inalo preferred' Is stated In
your advertisement," acknowledged tho
girl, "but I wanted a position, my first
one, very, much, and well, I've como
10 neu it iiuo win un kjuu. (
It was Just Ilka a girl to Introduce
such filmy, uncertain elements as fato
Into business I And yet Bradford was
not so prejudiced as ho had been ten
minutes before. IIo fancied the dingy
office was brighter already. Then thero
was another consideration women de
manded smaller remuneration fortholr
work, and this was still a matter of
moment with Bradford.
"This cr you say is your first posl-
tlon?" ventured Bradford, admitting I
unconsciously that tho Dlaco was hers
Tho girl saw this, but was too tact
ful to gtvo, ovldcnca of tho fact "Yes,"
she said. "I havo Just finished my
courso In stenography."
Bradford liked her soft, well modu
lated voice. It would sound well to
his customers over tho phone. A man's
volco wduld not sound half so well.
"Ofllco work Is confining," ho sug
gested by way of discouraging her.
"Yes; but when a woman has to
mako her way In. the world sho puts
on a smllo and faces tho worst." she
'replied, with Just a suspicion of an
accent on tho last word and with an
undeniably roguish twinkle in her eyes.
Sho could not qulto cast asldo.tho man
ner that had been her charm In tho
old Afo. Family fortunes may tako
wings and fly, .but innate coquetry Is
not to bo stifled by mero financial de
pression. Bradford could not deny that her
smllo had individuality. Ho- wonder
ed why tho women ho bad been forced
to meet had never smiled In Just that
way, no never know why, but ho
suddenly wished tho office wero clean
er. Ho would certainly speak to tho
woman who scrubbed and dusted In tho
".And about about salary?" ho ask
ed awkwardly. It was all rot this
women In business idea. They had no
right there. Ho would havo a man.
Ho felt Uko a cad talking to a woman
about salury. What did sho know of
"I bollevo it Is tho employer's pre
rogative to namo tho salary," said tho
Bradford, after searching .hopelessly
In his mind for a combination of words
and figures in which to adjust the
financial end of the transaction, named
tho amount which ho had had in mind
whenjnserting tho "ad."
"That will do very nlcoly," said tho
girl, rising. After all, this business
llfo was not so bard; men were not so
"And your namo?" asked Bradford.
"Henderson Mnrjorlo nendcrson,"
she said, smiling.
"And when will you como?" Brad
ford surprised himself at tho way In
which ho let her suit her own con
venience. "That, too, Is your prerogative," sho
replied, an odd Uttlo expression of def
erence in her eyes.
"Tomorrow? Is that too soon?" vIIo
had not expected to havo his stenog
rapher until tho following week, but,
after all, no doubt tho sooner he had
ono tho sooner his business letters
would commonce to bring good re
sults. "Very well, tomorrow. And at what
hour?" Thfcj man had not told her
anything of his demands upon his em
ployees. Sho had fancied herself de
parting with a list of rules a pago long,
to all of which sho must adhero rigidly.
"Oh, about 0:30," ho said. Ho had
decided when ho had Inserted tho ad
vertisement that ho would get to busi
ness earlier and have his stenographer
thero with him. But oh, woll, women
Bhould not have to get down too soon.
It was bard on them.
"I will be hero at that hour, Mr.
Bradford, thank you." And she closed
Alono, Bradford lit a cigar and lean
ed back in his desk chair. What bed
be done? no had engaged a woman, a
girl, as a stenographed Sho would al
ways bo in tho office,
swear; be wondered
He could not

coat and put his feet on his desk when
ho wanted to think thlugn out anfij

say, wo will bavo to havo a hook over
thero above tho washbpwl. Yes, put It
there." What a nuisance women were,
ho tried to convlnco himself. A wom

An ntmosphcro of strangeness, of em
barrassment and awkwardness filled
tho tiny olflco all day, and, yet Brad
ford did not look at thp dirty, dingy
elevated road for light as ho bad bcon
accustomed. It was brighter In the of-,
flee. IIo dictated his letters and was
pleased to noto tholr faultless pages,
Uiclr neat arrangement, their work
manlike appearance. Perhaps, after all,
a woman could, learn to bo business
like. "I will bring a little mirror. and a
towel and soma soap In tho morning,
Mr. Bradford, If you don't mind," sho
said as she left "Goodnight."
"A mlrrorl" Bradford sighed. This
was only tho beginning. But ho was al
ways glad when 0:80 arrived and sorry
when closing time came. Business
seemed to Increase; he sent out' 60
many letters. Miss nendcrson wan
quick, and often sho suggested llltlo

sho had her way, and soon a box of
blooming nasturtiums gavo tho dingy
room a cheerful aspect. Every morn
ing before ho was' ready to glvo her
his letters she watered them with a,
ridiculous little red watering pot.
Oftentimes after Miss Henderson had
left in tho evening Bradford stood over
tho tiny flower bed and soliloquized.
How different tho office- seemed! How
bright and clean his desk always look
ed! How much tho mirror added, and
tho clean towel, and and theso flowersl
They grew nnd bloomed happily under
her cure. What would not?
"Miss Henderson," began Bradford
one afternoon when sho was leaving
early, "I nm glad I added tho word
'preferred' to my advertisement for a
stenographer three months ago."
The girl looked surprised, but she
"If I hnd simply sold 'malo you
would never havo ventured to apply."
IIo twisted his penwiper ono sho had
made him into nn unsightly string.
"I I havo novpr approved of women
In business." ' v
She put her hatpins In carefully, slow
ly. "No?" sho intimated by nn eleva
tion of her brows.
"Nor nor anywhere," ho confessed.
"I've always arguod to the contrary."
"But argument doep not prevail In
anything which matters seriously," ad
mitted tho girl.
"And this matters seriously, Mar'jo-'
rie," ho said, moving toward her. "It
mutters awfully. I havo to havo ono
in business nnd and everywhere. Will
you lot mo havo her? I know It Isn't
businesslike, but I lovo you."
Marjorle Hcndcroon looked at him
squarely in tho eyes, "And I prefer a
partnership to a salaried position. You
come to the houso tonight, and we'll
talk It over with mother. It need not
be all business then."
Bradford has a Uttlo "want" adver
tisement framed abovo the desk In hts
private ofllco today, right over her pho
togruph, for tho business has grown,

IIo Wcul o Hit Station.
Tho story la told by a former west
ern hotel clerk of tho trials of a
French head waiter with an untrained
Nebraska youth assigned to him for
service in tho dining room. Tho youth
had been reared' on a ranch, but his
father and tho proprietor of tho house
wcro lifelong friends, and, ns a favor
to the father, the bonllaco had prom
ised to give tho boy a chance, ne ap
peared in abbreviated Jeans, and when
presented to the full dressed Parisian
who presided In tho dining room tho
latter looked hltn oyer and, with ob
vious misgivings, said, "I think ho is- a
Uttlo difficult." Nevertheless tho re
cruit was put into tho garb of tho
guild und his zono of activity defined.
IIo was also Impressed with tho neces
sity of prompt and unquestioning obe
dience to orders. Tho dinner hour ar
rived, nnd tho direction was given, "Go
to your station." Not his to reason
why, but blindly to obey, tho yokel
waiter disappeared. Tho hour was 1
o'clock, nnd two and a half hours later
ho inado his reappearance and then ex
plained that ho had understood tho
order, "do to tho station." Ho had
boon watching the trains go by and
wondered whut useful scrvlco ho was

waiter corps was terminated, and he
