Itcrtlo Temple came hurriedly up the
steps with a purposeful look In ills usu
ally dreamy eyes that elicited n mur
mur of surprised comment from the
nearest groups on the hotel piazza. Ho
mndc straight for the corner where
Dorothy Vnno was holding merry court.
Mnyhap It wis rudo to interrupt Up
right's best story, but the fair lady
lifted questioning eyes, and Itcrtlo
plunged into the hostile masculine cir
cle. "If you plense, Miss Dorothy, I should
llko to beg n few moments' conversa
tion private, If I may make 90 bold."
Perhaps it was for the reason that
this frank request, made with such ap
parent confidence in Its being granted,
sounded bo unlike diffident, self depre
catory llertlo that her woman's curiosi
ty was aroused. At any rate, tho furU
ous swains received a gracious but ag
gregate suillo for their kindness, and
Miss Dorothy wub borne away down
tho moonlit piazza on the arm of that

tell anybody else, but I know you'll

ly caddish but I should think you
must have seen! Encouraged by my
childlike countcnanco to take advan

"Most unhappy Infantt" Interrupted
Dorothy.iwlth a sympathetic pat on bis
white flnnncled sleeve. "You have had
our united commiserations for n week.
If that amiable spinster harbors no de
sign upon your Innocent head nppcar
nnccs nro indeed misleading. Only don't,
I beseech you, nsk me to abuse a faith
ful conscience by hiding her false front
or anything like that."
"No, Dolllc, I have my plan amaz
ingly simple and, I think you'll admit,
rather clever." Then he added, with a
sharp glance from tho corners of his
eyes, unobserved by tho smiling maid
en, "And if you'll only say yes, Dolllc,
we ought to bo nblo to get some fun out
of It thrown In."
"Unveil your mystery," came the an
"It's Just this: The old, old bore but

place to watch the moonlight on tho

her soul there this evening and oh,
you know tho sort of .stuff I Of course
it would be tho most natural thing in
the world for me to forget It if I had
persuaded my fiancee to sit with mo
Just outside tho window." Ho stopped
suddenly as they reached the corner of
the cast piazza, caught both the girl's
hands and held them for an Instant
"Dolfle, will you be engaged to me for
an hour, Just to save a fellow from the
Dorothy's head went high, tho scent
of battle In her dcllcato nostrils. Dur
ing the barely perceptible hesitation
her mind held the picture of a recent
day when she bad been cheated out of
an afternoon's sailing with tho adora
ble Freddie Burton by Miss SlmpklnB'
"I'll do It, Freddie," flho whispered In
A moment later Mr. Temple was seat
ing his fiancee pro tem. beneath the
wide, dark music room window.
"Ab, Dolllo mine," he breathed in
admirably loverllko tones, while the
young lady thus possessively address
ed half suppressed hysterical giggles,
"at last I have you to myself and
away from all thoso smirking cads that
cluster around you as If they had tho
right. Tho right is mine now, isn't it,
"Yc-cs," very faintly.
Thus encouraged, the happy lover
drew nearer and availed himself of
two tempting white hands. Miss Dor
othy removed them from his tender
clasp with vehemence. "Now, Bertie,
how many times have I to tell you"
There was Just "the tiniest rustling
within tho window.
"Dolllc," ho whispered, "you mustn't
forget wo'ro engaged I"
Tho hands resigned themselves limply
to tho Inevitable.
"I hope you realize, dearest" the
voice becamo audlblo ugaln, and
Dorothy was surprised to notice how
pleasantly caressing Bcrtlo'a volco
could bo "thut you have made mo tho
happiest man ullve. I've novcr want

ously. Again 11 suggestion of movement on
tho other sldo of the window.
Bcrtlo pressed the captive hands
warnlngly. "Please," ho whispered.
"She's there, listening. You prom
ised. We'll both bo In for it If you
"Well, then behave!" sho retorted
under her breath. "Just this once,
mind." Then n little louder, but un
steadily, "Do M-Iove you, Bertie,"
"Oh, my little girl, my llttlo girl!"
be said huskily, holding tho hands
tighter tbaniovor. "I sold I'was'hnppy
before, but I've never been absolutely
so until this minute. Why, Dolllc! You
remember we were Interrupted last
night, and you've never let mo klHS you.
It's 'Yes,' Isn't It dear?" leaning
"Why, Bcrtlo Temple, I should say
not! Of all tho mean, deceiving ad
vantage taking tricks" Sho paused
breathless, her volco quivering wrath
fully. But Bcrtlo clung desperately to her
hands. "Dolllc, don't spoil It ulll" lu
n beseeching whisper. "We'll never
hear the last of it."
She Bank back weakly.
"Oh! I I It's so very new, ".you

The elaborate pcrformnnco was hard
ly concluded when a small, agitated

own auditory member.
"Bertie! I'm positive I smell fresh

Tho answer came from an unexpect
ed quarter. Out of the dusk of tho low
music room, window stepped tho youth
ful, Immaculate figure of Miss Doro
thy's brother Bob.
"Hello, you twol" he greeted genially,
but with carefully modulated voice. "I
didn't mean to listen more than a min
ute, but it was too good a chance to
learn how. I know you'd not mind so
much, being all In the family. But, se
riously, old man, I'm no cud glad!
Bather have you for a brother than any
fellow I know though I had a suspi
cion that Dot made n practice of refus
ing you about onco a week. And hero's
my most brotherly kiss for the maiden
not on the ear, either!" And Bob
beamed gleefully on ono nnd then tho
other, a man who had risen to accept
his felicitations with quiet dignity and
a girl who stood with both bands press
ed to a palpitating breast
"This will Just about sign your re
Icnse on the Slmpklns' question, won't
it, Bertie?" continued tho garrulous
Bob. "By the bye, that cheerful skele
ton came tiptoeing Into the music room
Just before you two obscured my out
look and left with obvious reluctance
on discovering me. I supposo It's regis
tered to my discredit, but I hadn't the
moral courago to resign tho window
scat in her fnVor."
Dorothy's hands suddenly covered her
face, but not In time to quench a llttlo
gasping sound that was not more than
Bertie took ono step to her sldo and
throw n protecting arm across tho bent
shoulders. Under that shelter a flut
tering llttlo heart was proclaiming:
"She did come! It wns tho truth and
not a Joko to mako me wretched! I
could never have married a mau 'who
would Ho to met"
"Dot must bo weeping to think how
cut up old lady Slmpklns will be," ven
tured Bob, 'and nervous, I suppose, at
being interrupted so suddenly. Never
mind, little girl. I'll go right away'nnd
never tell n soul. Only sho might
show brother her now ring or is It all
so very now that tho ring hasn't ar
"So new that tho ring was about to
be produced when you appeared," re
plied Bertie in a very deep voice, tak
ing Dollle's left hand and slipping some
thing very quickly on to her finger.
"Oh!" she cried, with a quaver of de
light; then sho sat down very abruptly,
leaning forward to lot the moonlight
sparkle on the beautiful stone.
For onco In his life Bob showed 'suf
ficient discretion to steal noiselessly
She sat very still, absently turning
the circlet this way and that, watching
tho flash of changing colors; then, with
a 'shaky little sigh, sho slipped it off
and held It toward him. "It's very
lovely, Bertie. I guess tho girl you
bought It for won't mind my having It
on for a few minutes. Aren't you go

We've been pretty good friends, you

"Yea, Dolllc, I am going to tell you
who sho Is," ho answered slowly, then
dropped on ono kneo and slipped the
ring back on the finger from which

with wonder, "do you mean that you
