"What on earth d'ye call that thing?"
I naked, poking with my stick at a bunch
of grapes poised airily upon a brass
"That thing," replied iny cousin proud

I sank Inch itito tho littlo lounge that
ran along tho sido of tho room you
couldn't insult anything so dainty with
tho name of "shop" and gazed upon its
owner with an exclamation rnoro pro
fnno than appropriate.
It nni9t at onco bo confessed that she
was a charming object to gazo at.
Thcro was an expression of wicked
amusement in her largo gray eyes, aud
tho black gown she still woro in mourn
ing for her husband poor Jack Heuder- '
son, who was killed in tho Soudan set
off the lines of her slender young figure,
and throw her' golden hair and fair-skin
piottily into relief.
"Pull yourself together, my dear boy,"
sho continued, opening tho door of an
old carved oak cabinet, "and I will show
you something that even your crude
male intellect will appreciate. If you
don't say it's lovely Til never lot you in
sido the shop again. You may flatten
your nose against the window, or stroll
disconsolately up and down tho street
in vainl No more chata, no more teas in
the back rooml" j
So caying, sho lifted gingerly from the
shelf a "a large hat, and planting it upon
her pretty head txirned triumphantly to
ward mo. It was lovely quite lovely
a sort of arrangement in amethyst vel
vet and feathers to match. Being only a
miserablo and ignorant malo of course
I can't describe it, but it was uncom
monly becoming, and made Nina look
like n Gainsborough picture. I told her
so and gushed ovor it sufficiently to sat
"It's my own idea, shapo and all, and
thero isn't anothor like it in tho world.
I may possibly copy it, but I'm not sure.
It depends upon who buys it. How 1
wish you woro a woman, Ronald!" 6ho
Kghcd legiolfully, "and I would make
you buy it for Ascot to-morrow?"
"I wish I were, my dear. But why
don't you go and wear it yourself"
"Gracious! and leave tho shop for a
whole day at this early stage of its ex
istence? Yon guardsmen havo no moro
idea of business than a baby. No, I
can't go; but I hope you'll have a lucky
day and a good time, and Ronald dear,
if you were nico you'd just look in one
day soon and tell me what sort of day
you had. Oh, and be sure you don't for
get to notice what hats and bonnets peo
I promised to do my best, and took my
leavo i eluctantly as a largo and portly
matr u, gorgeously arrayed, and whoso
features unmistakably betrayed her Se
mitic origin, bailed in and demanded u
small "flower bonnet."
That vtomun in a flower bonnotl J
hope, poor soul, that Nina s.ived her
"What aio 3-ou going to do this after
noon, Ronald?" jisked my mother, three
days later. "I wish you to come and
call with me on tho Vanderdeckens."
"Can't, my dear mother. Promised
to go and see Nina."
Visions of Miss Vanderdeckeu, rich as
Croesus, but ohl so deadly dull, hastened
my movements, and I was half way to
Oxford btreet befoio my mother could
call mo back. I found Mine. Destrier,
as my cousin calls herself, just p irting
with a customer. The hat was in hei
."I've soldit," she cried gleefully; "just
sold it to that nice girl for five guineas."
"Awtully glad, I'm sure, liut, my
dear girl, I've a shock in store for you.
I saw tho .very model and marrow of
that hat at Ascot the day before yester
day." "You couldn't, y6u couldn'tt Who
was wearing it?" she cried sharply.
" One of our reigning professional beau
"Lady Loddingtonl" gasped Nina,
catching hold of the chair behind hor.
"Ronald, are you sure you aren't mak
ing any mistake?"
"I swear I'm not. She had on a frock
tho color of tho hat, and she looked sim
ply ripping. I paid her all tho compli
ments I could think of in the five min
utes I was talking to her."
"The cheat, tho swindle of itl" cried
my cousin, white with anger.
"My dear girl, calm yourself! Pm
Borry for you, but great minds, as you
know, will jump, and some other clover
woman has had tho same idea as you."
Nina was past taking any notice of the
insulting suggestion. Sho seemed thor
oughly upset by tho coincidence, und
looked as if sho wore going to cry.
"Why did 1 over go into business?"
alio cried miserably; "it's simply awful

why it wnn bo nxpcnslvo. ''0h, I don't

I should bo ghid to send it, and sho gave
rno the address, and tho hat went round
thero tnat oveulilg. Last night she sent
it back nnd said sho was vory sorry, but
Lord Loddington didn't think it suited
her. I thought it looked a little tumbled,
but ono has to run thoso risks when one
sends goods on approval. Sho had de
termined to havo that hat just to wear
for tho ono day, and sho was too moan to
get it honestly."
"Of course you'll liavo it out with her
you'll expoBO her?" I said.
I was as augry and disgusted as Nina,
who stood opposite me, with her pretty
oyes and cheeks flaming with honest in
dignation. "My dear boy, I would if I dared, but
I can't afford to. It would drive half
my customers away from me, and I must
think of Hugo and Giles. Thoy don't
cost much while they are such tildes,
but I want to givo them overy advan
tage, tho darlings, and I was left so bad
ly off, and tho business is just beginning
to pay so well. I dnren't run the risk of
exposing Lady Loddingtou's meanness."
"I had forgotten your children. No,
I see it wouldn't do. Trust mo to give
hor a inuuvais quart d'houro, if I got the
"Piomiso you'll bo careful. Think of
"I won't injure tho dear littlo chaps,
you best of mothers."
"Well, in that case, I only hope fort
une may favor you." '
Fortune did favor me at last, but she
kept me waiting till tho autumn, like the
ficklo jade sho always is. My chance
came in this wise: My undo asked mo
up to his place iu Scotland for shooting,
and I went. The old gentleman is a
very connoisseur of beauty, and every
pretty woman of note is bound to be
asked up to D. sooner Or later. I got
thero in time to dress hurriedly and ap
pear in tho drawing room just as my
uncle was telling every one whom they
were to take in. I was introduced to
some girl I haven't a notion who she
was, but I gpvo her my arm and took
her down to liuner, murmuring com
monplaces uh the way. Tho truth is, 1
was half famiahed with my journey aud
my ono idea was dinner. It was not till
I was well on with the fish stage that 1
looked at my loft hand neighbor. It was
Ludy Loddington herself.
"I haven't been you since wo mot at
Abcot," sho remarked pleasantly.
Sho certainly is a most lovely woman,
by tho way. I etared blankly, and she
went on, with an nir of well acted re
"I believe you havo forgotten we ever
Here was my chance; I seized it.
"Forgotten! Why, I remember every
word you said, tho color of your gown,
and even tho very hat you wore the
loveliest and most becoming hat I ever
saw in my life."
The compliment told.
"I don't believe you do," she pouted.
"Upon my word I do. It was a sort
of big affair of amethyst velvet and
feathers to match. I remember it with
doublo force because I made a cousin of
mine quite angry with tho moro descrip
tion of it. I don't know if you have ever
met her? Sho ha? gone into millinery,
like overybody else. Sho calls herself
Mme. Destrier.' "
I lookod Lady Loddington full in the
face, and laid a peculiar emphasis on the
I never saw any ono so thoroughly
caught in my life. I know in a moment
that sho knew I knew, as Punch would
put it. Sho turned perfectly scarlet to
tho loots of her hair, and then quite
white, and didn't speak for at least a
moment. Then sho pulled herself to
gether as only a woman can, and adroit
ly changod the subject.
But she has beon monstrously civil to
mo ever since, much to the surprise of
my friends. I am plain and uninterest
ing; I am not a personage; I haven't a
farthing not even expectations and
they cau'tmake out where the attraction
lies. Thoy had better ask Mme. De
strier, of Oxford street, to enlighten

Another incident of tho wheelmen's
excursion over to Europe we overfTeard
one morning. Thoy wore riding along
through Germany when a German boy
throw a good sized club out in tho road
to see them run over it. Unfortunately,
the club struck a wheel, broko out four
or five spokos and caused a rider to take
a header. They all dismounted and
made for the boy. The parents put in
an appearance. Between English and
Gorman it was difficult to make them
understand what tho boy had done.
Finally the affair was illustrated by
tho production of the club and the
wheel. Then tho old man turned on the
boy and gave him u ternblo whipping.
When ho got through the wife continued
on in a becond edition. All efforts to
induce payment for tho broken wheel
woie in vain. They wero willing to
pound tho boy, bnt had no money to re
pair damages. West Choster (Pa.) Rec
