Tim mischief wus done all In n tutu
utc, Futo perhaps knew how. KnrseiiB
tertaliily was all in the dark and ns an
gry ns he wus amazed -to Und himself
lu Cupid's tolls. lli hud got almost
through this house party as through n
hundred others scot free, unburdened
by more thau passing memories of
black eyes or gray or blue. Indeed he
had.paBScd up Mildred Goro as impos
sible two minutes after ho took her lu
to dinner, regretfully too. It was on
muny counts so dcslrublu that he
should II nd in her tbo woman he,
wished to marry.
Hlio was his equal in birth, In for
tune, in position; his people approved
her thoroughly; moreover, there had
descended to him a burden of obliga
tion to her blood which it was impossi
ble that money could discharge. Her
father bad come to his father's rescue
In a day of trouble that otherwise must
have ended in disaster, forcing bis way
through 11 mob of clamoring depositors
In the elder Knrscns' bank, with bags
of gold In either hand and a ready
promise of ten times as much at need.
That had stopped the senseless run.
Men who had been ready to light for
their money had begged nbjectly to
hare It kept in tho vaults.
Tills, of course, had been lu the dayB
of provincialism, beforo Banker Kar
sens had come to the city to prosper
and die a millionaire. Ills son Herbert
hnd only the haziest memory of the
flitting of Mln.ton, tho little homo town,
and haziest of all of Mildred as a wisp
of long, white clothes with something
red and squirmy at tho top of them,
which lie had been bidden to kiss, but
from which he had turned away lu dis
gust, sticking small lists Into his first
pair of pockets and saying grandly,
"I'm n man now; don't kiss girls any
Until two hours before they were to
leave HIdaway, tho Barton country
house, ho told himself the Ooro girl
was out of the question.
Ills wife must have, nbovo all things,
beauty and brilliance. Mildred was
quiet, lumpish even, he thought, con
tent to play wall flower or happy with
Dicky Barton for company. Dicky was
n Infant terrible, aged seven. All the
other girls shunned him as much ns
Ho hod somehow sensed It thnt Mil
dred might be n beauty if she choso be
foro ho saw her come home from a
rapid ride with checks Hko damask
roses and tendrils of soft brown hair
framing her glowing face. A crown
of wild grape blooms lay lightly nbovo
the tendrils; a sheaf of pink wild roses
was crushed against her dark green
coat Just below tho throat. She was
laughing, too, as merrily, ns happily, ns
Dicky himself Dicky, who rode at her
elbow, Impishly happy over having
brought both their horsps, to tho edgo
of running away. Dicky it was wio
hnd crowned her, after pulling off her
hat and letting down her hair. lie
scowled nt Karscns as that gentleman
made to help Mildred down, saying
shrilly: "You go 'way and stay with
your no-goods! She," nodding toward
Mildred, "belongs to me. I'm golu' to
marry her when I'm grown up. That
wlj be nbout Christmas after next"
"Dicky, don't you think It might be
next Christmas?" Mildred asked, her
eyes, dancing. "I liate long engage
ments. They're nlways dreadfully sor
rowful, besides being unlucky." Dicky
looked at her doubtfully.
"How do you know?" ho asked. "Are
you begaged to tho fellow you caryy
round In your locket? I saw you kiss
It tho other day. Let mo see what ho
looks like; you know you said you
"So I will some time," Mildred an
swered, catching him by the, shoulders
and swinging him back and forth. Kar
scns noted how, soft yet firm her hands
were, the fine modeling of wrists nnd
palms, tho whole pose of grace and
strength. But ho hardly knew that ho
did note them he was so blindly, so fu
riously Jealous of tho fellow in tho
locket. When Dicky at last ran away
to his mother Karscns stood before Mil
dred, usklng Imperatively, "Aro you
"What's that to Hecuba?" Mildred
countered, her paling roses suddenly
"Everything!" Karscns sad, with a
thick undornote. "Mildred, Mildred,"
he went on, "I havo been blind this ten
days. Now that I boo is it quite too
"I don't understand," Mildred said
suddenly, prim and pale. She hajf
turiicd nwuy her face ns she wound
up her thick hair und mussed It high
on her head. "I must go," sho mur
mured. "Dicky has every hairpin In
somo of his pockets. lie says ho means
to keep them so I cannot go with tho
others. My hair, you see, is unruly;
it defies .o.-dinary fasteulngs, so unless
I cun get the pins buck before he thluks
to hide them the chances ure I shall
really bo a prisoner until tomorrow."
All this In a huddle, with (light after
it Kursens stood staring after the
vanishing figure lu a scowling duze. He
was augry clean through. If it was
fato'8 decrec that ho Bhould bo tuus
wJed oyw, wjy ,md u U(jt MmB to
pass at Urst? Then he might havo had
a chance now, now, when ho had
shown himself n condescending uss, of
courso h)io would never look at blm,
much less listen. There wits also the
man lu tho locket. She had blushed
furisusly when Dicky told of him. Who
could he be? Some Mlntou muulkln,
no doubt, Though Mildred hud been
itrango to him, he knew how sho had
grown up there, the light of her father's
eyes, tho stay and comfort of an in
valid mother. They hnd no business to
keep her there. It wns thnt which had
made her so silent, so palo and unglrl
Ish Instead of a beauty as glorious us
She was, after all, the wife for him,
yet they had given her no chance. He
had beeu likewise defrauded. Huw was
he to know that might so nunllke could
noften and brighten Hko n gray sky at
ilawu? Until train tlmo hu asked him
self these things and many mora over
nnd over. Ho meant to have them
unswered lu part before ho got back to
tho city. There fato balked' him. At
the very last minute Mildred 'deelded to
stay another day. Dicky howl(kl de
light and trluniph when he licurd it
nnd instantly carried her off ' from
everybody, Knrsens mndo his adieus
with what grace he might nnd went
homo more than ever dazed.
Ho did not sleep that night. Next
day betimes he sped him bnck to HId
away. Ho found the houso deserted.
Mrs. Barton was out driving, said tho
butler, Mliis Goro? Ho was not sure.
She might be In the grounds. She was
not In her own room or nnywhero
nbout the house.
Wherever sho might be, Master Dicky
was with her. Karsens waited to hear
nothing moro. He plunged I nib tho
shrubbery, took a short cut that led
to the plno grove and came out at tho
edge of It breathless, yet content, for
ho heard voices through the murmur
ing stillness of It Dicky's shrill nnd
gleeful, Mildred's touched with plead
ing, yet wholly good humored. Knr
sens crept noiselessly toward tbo pair,
stopped lu tho ambush of a big. plno
six foot nwny and listened shamelessly
to what was said, having much ado
tbo while to keep himself from 'laugh
ing. Mrs. Barton doted on antiques. Sho
had astounded the countrysldo by pay
ing fabulously for all manner of truck,
ancient and weather beaten. Thus It
happened she hnd bought from tho
town authorities the old stocks rum
maged out when the town hall was re
built nnd had set them up In the 'pines,
arranging them so strollers might sit
on them nnd hear the tale of' them.
Adventurers even put their feet In tho
allotted spaces of timbers still stanch.
Thus Dicky had learned the trick. Ho
had played It this morning himself,
then persuaded Mildred to do the same.
When her feet were nicely settled ho
slapped down tho upper half, fastened
it tight and suld: "Now you nro my
prisoner. I will not let you out until"
"Until what, Dicky, dear?" Mildred
had nsked, laughing heartily. She was
asking It still when Karscns came lu
sight. Dicky seemed pondering deep
ly. "It's not fair to ask two things for
one," ho said nt last, "and I want to
nsk two. I don't know Just yet which
I wuut worse." .,,,-..
"Oh, well, then I'll go to sleep, nnd
let you And out," Mildred sqld, pre
tending to sigh deeply, although Kar
sens was sure her eyes wero dancing.
Dicky went very near her. "You better
not," ho suld, " 'causo If y,pu do I
mightn't havo to ask but one."
"Indeed! Tell mo what they are.
Maybe I can decide which of them you
ought to care most about," 'Mildred.
said, coaxlngly. Dicky shook his head.
"I know nil by myself now," ho. said,
"'cause If I said you must stay horo
always you couldn't We're only here
for summer time. So you've got to
show me the man In the locket If
you don't I'll keep you hero till mam
ma comes, to And us. Then sho will
punish me, nnd you'll bo mighty sorry."
"So sorry I cannot possibly let It
happen," Mildred said, with a bubbling
laugh. Karsens heard tho faint click
of n spring, then DIcky'B sorrowful
shout: "Why, It's nobody In the, world
but that silly Bert Karscns I What do
you wont with him, Mllly? I know. I'm
ever so much better looking!"
"Not a doubt, of If Karscns. said,
rushing forward and kneeling beside
Dicky's prisoner. Tho telltale locket
lay open face down In her lap, whero
It had fallen from her nerveless Angers.
As ho closed It after one glance ho said
In Mildred's ear, "Darling, If you, kept
that thing maybe I can persuade you
after a long, long tlmo to tako tbo orig
inal." "Not unless your mother says so.
She sedt me the picture," Mildred
whispered. Dicky had scampered off.
As Knrseus set her free ho drew her
hand over Ids arm, saying with a shnko
of the head: "You're much too danger
ous to bo left at largo. I shall keep
you prisoner all tho rest of your life."
Two clubmen wero praising the pluck
"A. good dog," said one, "has tho
same kind of. pluck that old Jerome
McWado used to show.
"Ho was a farmer, seventy years old,
but still bale nnd hearty. Ono morning
ho and his two sons got to wrangling
over their strength, and Jerome de
clared that he could load qulto as fast
as they could pitch it.
'So to tho fields they went, and Je
rome got Into a bay wagon with bla
fork, and tho two boys down below be
gan to ptch tho bay up to him as fast
ns they could pitch It ;, .
"The old man Btood up to his wok
stoutly. IIo loaded with lightning
speed, and all the wbllo be kept calling
dovn: 'Moro hay! Moro hsyl'
"Tho boys worked hard. Their youth
told In their favor. Old Jeromo got to
loading more and moro untidily. Still
as he scrambled about on top of tho
uneven mounds ho contluued to shout,
"All of a sudden ho tripped as ho
dug In his fork and foil from tho wagon
to tho ground,
" 'Ah, said his eldest son, 'what aro
you doing down hero?'
"Jeromo us ho roso unswered:
"'I caino down for more buy,'"
