-GIRL IN THE PULLMAN
By Herbert Paul.
(Copyright by W. G. Chapman.)
- Why the story tokl by this
simple country girl in the Pull
man brought tears to Miss Agnes
Dare's eyes the latter could not
imagine. It was only after she
knew how deeply she was moved
that she discovered the reason.
"What Has It to Do With You?"
It was her girlhood story over
again.
It is because Miss Dare is so
well known that I have called her
by this nom de plume. Her mar

story.
She was a rancher's daughter,
and it was the old tale of a mo

traction, and the brilliant actor
whose fancy she had caught while
his "troupe played two nights at
the county capital. Clarence
Montfort Miss Dare could not
recall the name. But he had
spoken to her in the street on the
first day, and called upon the girl
at the house of the friend with
Whom she was staying that even
ing; and on the second day he had
made desperate love to" her; and
the country girl was wholly en

Denver. Wasn't it a wonderful
romance! And her old father,
