The rea.-on why hi many women fall
ns artists as well as in many other pio
fessions may bo because, they pay hi
much attention to their own diess. It
is nn astonishing fact to record that
Miss Lluderham sent out for si French
hairdresser, who was n most expensive
man, and whom she generally called in
only when pome veiy important func
tion was about to take place.
"I want yon," 'ho said, "to dress
my hair in an aitistic way and yet in
a manner that will seem as if no par
ticular tumble had been taken with it
Do yon uudetstaud met"
"Ah, perfectly, mademoiselle," mild
tho polite FionoliiiKin. "You Mmll he

"Vex." nn ill Mi-a Liiiderliam, "Unit
is what I want."
At !1 o'clock sho hud on n dainty
gown. The sleeves were turned np as if
nho were ready for tho most minus
work. The spotless pinafoie which cov
ered this drcbs had tho most fetching
little frill nronii.1 it. All in all, it was
doubtful if any studio in London, even
one belonging to tho most celebrated
painter, had in it as pretty a picturo as
Miss Maggie Limlerliaiii was that after
noon. At it o'clock there ciiinu a ring at
the telephone, and when Miss Linder
btim answeted the call tho voice which
sho had lieaid befoie said
"I am veiy miry to disappoint you,
niadame, hut Luid Htausfoid resigned
this afternoon. We could send you mi
other man if you liked to have him."
"No, nol" cried Mls Lindeihain,
and the man at tho other end of the
tolephouo actually thought sho was
"No, I don't want any one wise. It
doesn't really matter."
"Tho other man," replied tho voice,
"would bo only 2 guineas, and it was
B for Loid Htnnsford. YVo could send
yon a man for a guinea, although wo
don't recommend him."
"No," said Mis.s Lindeihaui. "I
don't want anybody. I am glut! Lord
Stauaford is not coming, as tho little
parly I propo-ed to give lias been post
poned." "Ah, then, when it comes off, uin
dmno, I hopo"
13 nt Miss Lluderham hung up the re
ceiver and did not listen to the iccoui
ineiidatlous tho man was Bending over
thu who nbont his hired guests. The
chances uro that Magglo Liiiderham
would l.,ive ciied had it not been that
her hafr was eo nicely yet carebssly
done. But before nho hud time to malio
np her mind what to do tho trim little
maid came along the gallery and down
the etepa into the studio with a silver
salvor In her hand and on it a card.
Miss Lluderham picked np tho card tind
read, ".Richard Stansford."
"Ob I" she cried joyfully "Ask him
to come here."
,rV7on't yott eeo him In the drawing
".No, no: tell hllii I am very busy
and bring him to tho studio."
Tho maid went up tho stair again
Miss Lluderham, taking ono long, care
ful glance nt herself, looking over her
Bbouldcr in tho long mirror, mid, not
caring to touch her wealth of hair,
picked np her crayon and began mak
ing the sketch of tho striking man even
worse than It was heforo. She did not
look round until sho heard Lord Stans
ford's step on the stair: then sho gave
an exclamation of nnrpriso en seeing
lit tu. Tho young man was dressed in a
widenwake hat and tho costume which
wo see in tho illustrated papers as pic
turing our friends in Sonth Africa. All
ho needed was u belt of cartridges and
a rillo to make the picture complete.
"This Is hardly tho dress u man is
supposed to wenr in London when ho
makes an afternoon call on a lady, Miss
Liiiderliam," paid tho young man, with
a langh, "but I had cither tocomo this
way or not tit nil, for my tluto is very
limited. I thought it was too bad to
leavo tho I'onutiy without giving yon
an oppoi Utility to apologize for jour
conduct last night and for tho addi

this afternoon And to, you see, I
"I am verj jilad yon did," replied
Miss Lluderham. "I was much disap
pointed when they telephoned mo this
iftemoon that you had resigned. I
must say that you lock exceedingly
well in that outfit. Lord Stansford."
"Vex," said tho young mail, casting
i glance over himxelf. "I must admit
that it is rather becoming. I haVo luid
tho pleaxiire of attracting a good deal
f attention as I came along the street."
"They took you for a cowboy, I sup
jom'K" "Well, something :t that sort. The
niiall boy, I regret to say, was so un
feeling as to sing 'lie's got eo on' and
ttber ribald ditties of that kind, which
they seem to think suited the occasion
Hut otheis looked at me with great re
ipect, whkli compensated for the ills-
' idvantnges. Will yon paidon the rudo
less of a pioneer, Mixs Lluderham,
vhen I say that you look even more
rhariulug in the studio, dress than you

. that could be pi)slhlo1"
"Oh I" ci led the girl, lluhing. per
haps Imviito the rrimsou paint on tho
palette she iiad picked up reflected on
, her cheek. "You must excuse this
, woiking garb, as I did not expect visit
ors. You see, they telephoned to m
that you were not coining."
I Tlie deluded young man actually
i thought this statement was correct,
which in part it vii3, and ho believed
, also that the luxuriant hair tossed up
I here and there witli seeming careless
nexs was not tho result of tut art fur
superior to any the girl herself had
. ever put upon canvax.
"So you are nil to South Africa!"
"Yes, tho Cape."
"Oh, is tho Cape in South Africa?"
"Well, I think so," replied tlio young
man, tome what dubiously, "but I
wouldn't bo certain about it, though
the steamship company guarantees to
land mo at the Cape, wherever it is."
Tho girl lungbcd.
"You iiiut have given It a great deal
of thought," she said, "when you don't
really know whero you are going."
"Oh, I haven better idea of direc
tion than you give me credit fori I am
not such a fool as I looked last night,
you know. Then I belonged to Spink &
Co., and was sublet by them (to old
Heckle; now I 'belong to mj self and
South Africa. That makes a world of
difference, you know."
"I tee it doe-. " leplied Miss Liiider
liam. "Won't you sit down?"
Tho girl heiself sank into an arm
chair, wlillo Stausfoid i:it on n low
table, swinging one foot to and fro, his
wide brimmed hat thrown back, and
gazed at the girl until sho reddened

The girl looked up at him, first with
Indignation in her eyes ami then with
a smile hovering abont her pretty lips.

answered, "for yon knew nothing about
