FRONT. ST,. Or, SPRECKRIS BLOCK
By TROY ALLISON
Copyright, 1XA, by Troy AUltm
Thero' was something on tho profess
or's mind. Every young 'woman in tho
Honlor Greek class realized It. Ho bad
shown symptoms of It for throe weeks,
but tills morning It had assumed tho
form of nu undcnlablo fact When tho
shy girl of the class got rattled and
construed a present Infinitive as a past
partlclplo he did not oven notice It.
This samo shy little Uuth Pnyno had
iiHHumod tho proportions of a problem
to Professor Claxton. Tho girl nover
gave a decent recitation, yet passed her
examinations "with tho highest marks.
Ho had tried not to harbor ft suspicion
that sbo resorted to unfair means on
examinations, but ho could think of
nothing elso that would solvo tho mys
tery. Tho professor's mind, however, was
agitated by a mora complicated prob
lem than Ruth Payne's poor recitations
la Greek. Ho had a guilty conscience.
Ho felt that each and every pair of
feminine cyes beforo him wero search
lights turned upon his secret Ho was
convinced that each young woman
knew thero was a packago of letters In
bis vest pocket Of course letters aro
commonplace In a way and something
uuy man might Innocently possess, but
tbeso wero anonymous. That was
enough to mako him tarn crimson, but
tho knowlcdgo that ho bad enjoyed
reading theso letters and moreover had
actually mailed answers to the address
given hung over him llko a shadow.
Ho know there had at various times In
tho world's history been other nnony
mous letters. Really to receive them
was a different matter. Ownership
lends a certain dcflnlto Interest
Tho professor constantly remember
ed the first of these letters, no had
walked leisurely to the postofllco after
the early supper, unconscious of Im
pending fate. The college town was a
small one, and It lent variety to llfo to
own a postpfllce box and go for ono's
mall rather than havo It sent by tho
On that memorable night he had tak
en his letters and looked them over
listlessly until ho camo to tho ono that
was tho proverbial bombshell In his
experience. He read it over thrco
tlnios beforo his astonished faculties
were nblo to grasp the fact that thero
was a woman, an unknown woman,
who professed an admiration for him.
Ho was not qulto suro that it was ex
actly respectablo to havo an unknown
woman write him a letter, and his po
dantlc soul knew that If It did not go
beyond tho bounds of respectability It
at least must bo called an Impropri
ety. Tho first letter troubled his pcaco
of mind for days. It was witty and
bright and contained just that delicato
soupcon of flattery that charms tho
man who believes ho abominates flat
tery. Hod not she Insinuated that sho had'
met him occasionally and had been
struck with the Idea that ho possessed
a depth of understanding It would bo
Interesting to fathom?
Sho further stated sho was at that
time leading so quiet and restricted a
life that she was at a loss forfsomo
real Intellectual Interest His mind
Immediately pictured tho sister of tho
president of tho college, who was
spending a quiet winter In tho small
villa go for the sako of her health. Yot
It seemed Impossible, that a woman of
so much dignity and reserve could take
such a step even for amusement
After popderlng over tho matter sov
cral days carefully and methodically,
according to his custom, ho had hesi
tated and been lost no had answered
that letter. The address given was In
a neighboring city, and ho had found
himself g61ng to tho postofllco after
ward under the Btlmulus of an unusual
excitement IIo had really been curi
ous to see tho second one.
Ho had a hazy recollection of an
adago that tho second step In wrong
doing had won renown as being less
difficult than tho first no felt posi
tive symptoms of plcasuro In answer
ing tho socond letter.
no know that tho dignity of his post
tlou would fall flatter than tho western
Roman empire If tho girls In his class
onco got an Inkling that ho was a
factor In an unonymous correspond
ence. Nevertheless ho grew moro ab
sentmlndcd every day, and every day
his curiosity Increased, this pedant of
thlrty-flvo who had all his llfo refused

Involving all parts of speech.
He was walking on the college cam
pus ono afternoon meditating with
much satisfaction on the fact that ho
had at last gathered courago to beg
bis anonymous friend to dlscloso her
Identity and lot him call the next time
ho wont to tho city. Tho professor was
a shy man and had found it required
all tho uervotio possessed to mako this
request He was thinking It could not

A tiny green snake ran across tho

her white face other girls rushed to bis
"It was an awful snakel" Ruth gasp
ed when sho opened her eyes. .
After the girls bad taken her to the
houso ho picked up the Greek Syntax
sho had dropped In her fright.
A sealed letter, ready for mailing,
dropped out Tho address was plainly
"Professor It. O. Claxton," and tho
writing was In tho familiar hand of
tho anonymous lady.
lie sat down limply on tho nearest
iron bench. There seemed something
awry with the universe. Was It pos
sible Unit this pretty child had written
such letters a llttlo blond girl who
blushed furiously and stammered ev
ery time sho was spoken to In class!
Ho opened tho lottor eagerly. Its
superscription gavo him that privilege.
Ho noticed, too, that tho girl's namo
written on tho fly loaf of tho Greek
(syntax was Identical .with tho writing
on tho envelope. Ho read on to learn
that he could call on hor at tho end of
tlm collogo year when ho passed
through tho city on his way homo If
he still cared to meet her.
Tho professor went to his room, his
thoughts In chaotic condition.
That night ho followed her to tho
corner of tho veranda, where sho sat
gazing abstractedly on tho moonlit
"So I have met you," ho said quietly.
Ho sat down bcsldo her and looked at
her Intently. "And so-you aro tho
woman?" ho added slowly.
She gavo a frightened gasp and look
ed at him with terror nud shamo in
her eyes. '
"It was awful of me, I know. It was
a dreadful tiling for mo to do." Sho
turned away from him, and he could
see sho was trembling with nervous
ness. "It has given mo moro pleasure than
anything that over happened In my
whole life," he said simply.
Sho gavo h.lm ono quick glanco and
hurried Into self Justification.
"I have always been timid," sho said
In nn Intcnso whisper, "and I was so
mortified when I would got nervous
and fall In my recitations. Tho mlnuto
you nsUed mo a question every thought
scorned to lcavo my mind. I got moro
embarrassed each day. I got desperate.
I determined you should know I was
capahlo of having a thougtit That
wild Rcheinp of writing you anony
mous letters camo, and I wroto them.
I'm so very Borry." And tho professor
heard the sob In her voice.
Ho answered earnestly; "I'm glad I
hhall bo eternally glad If you tell mo I
need never giro up those letters. They
havo become part of my llfo."
The girl's eyes grew wldo with emo
tion. Ho gazed at her wonderlngly, try
ing to understand how bo had failed to
recognize her before. Now she seemed
sonic ono that had been In his llfo for
ever, lie had been lonely, and be re
membered that she herself was an or
phan, that after tho closo of tho term
sho would take up tho burden of teach
ing. "I you mean that you want mo to
keep on writing to you?" sho asked
"I mean that I want to teach you
how to talk to me," ho said, Bmlllng. "I
want to keep with mo forever tho wom
anly companionship of my letters.!'
Sho gasped In astonishment
"But I thought you believed mo Btu
pld. I couldn't rcclto my Greek to you
decently to Bavo my Ufa"
The professor looked Into her star
tled eyes and laid his. band on hers.
"I don't caro it you couldn't tell
Greek from Chinese," he said solemnly,
deriding tho hobby of years.
"But don't you think mo a frivolous,
doll baby kind of a girl?" sho question
no leaued over and touched her fair
hair with all tho reverence of a child
who has never beforo owned a golden
