ENEMY NEXT DOOR
What Happened When He Was
Brought to Her Home Near
By SUSANNE GLENN.
"(iood morning," called tho man
across tho hedge- In what Miss Mattlo
Muyno eon s I ip red a disagreeably
"(Sood morning," ho repeated, loud
er and inoro cheerfully, uh she contin
ued pruning her currant, bunnon In si
lence. She lifted her head tlien with a dig
nity that h!io meant to bo chilling,
and looked him over critically, before
sho resumed her pruning.
"He Is one of those men who nev
er can seo through anything," Bho
sighed In exasperation, knowing that
Mary Iauo was enjoying her dlscom
llturo from the hack porch adjoining.
Tho man, sho decided, was big with
an nil-pervading cheerfulness, and
might have been called good-looking
If ho had not resembled ho much the
rest of tho Uaytons!
"I wonder," he wns Buying to him
self, "If sho can possibly bo deaf?"
Ho cam. unite close to the dividing
hedge. "Won't you let mo come over
and do that for you?" he fairly shout
ed, and Allan .Mattlo distinctly heard a
Btirpressed laugh from the Uino back
With cheeks eutlrely scarlet, Bho ap
proached the hedge, pruning knlfo
in hand Seldom had sliu appeared to
better advantage, and sho was not a
plain woman at any time.
"1 am not deaf," sho explained
painstakingly, and in a voice too low
for any ears hut his. "Could you not
see that I did not caro to speak to
"Hut why?" ho demanded, imitating
her tone ns well as his good bass
volco would allow, his admiration
shining openly In his eyes. "I'd llko
to come over aud do that hard work
for you. What is tho reason I can
not?" "Hecause," said Miss Mattlo slowly,
"we are enemies."
"Enemies?" Ho threw his head
suddenly and laughed so unre
strainedly that a head appeared at a
nearby window. "Why, my dear young
lady, how can wo bo enemlcB when
wo aro strangers. If wo aro to be
"Hut wo are not to bo neighbors,"
sho interrupted coolly. "I have nev
er neighbored with the Daytons. And
I beg of you to remember It, and not
make mo ridiculous beforo everyono
In the street." And she returned to
her pruning without another glanco la
What Philip Dayton thought of this
dismissal cannot be recorded, becauso
ho had recently como to the old Day
ton homestead upon Inheriting It at
tho death of his undo, and he had
made nono of the interested neighbors
his confidant. -He settled down with
a capable housekeeper, and Miss
Mayno continually heard him spoken
of in tho highest terms of approval,
all of which she accepted in silenco.
Hut it takes two to make' a bargain,
as she presently began to perceive;
sho might refuse to be his neighbor,
but ho certainly had every intention of
Ono morning Bho found on her back
porch a basket of such grapes as grew
nowhere but in tho Dayton garden.
"The horrid wretch," she cried, "uot
to glvo mo an opportunity to refuse
them. Now 1 shall havo to accept, or
let them spoil." And sho carried thorn
Another morning, following a moon
light night, she found tho apples from
her Spy tree in a neat pile at tho foot
of her back steps. "I was out there
yeBterday wondering how I should get
them, and 1 suppose I was seen! I
declare, It la getting so I hardly daro
walk about my own garden!"
When snow came, which It did
early, as if. In exasperation, nothing
could mako htm desist from keeping
her paths clear. And Miss Mattlo at
tacked her morning work furiously
to drown tho sound of his shovel,
keenly conscious of tho peerings and
titterings along tho street.
Tho Dayton cat, a huge, black crea
ture, seemed to Bhare In tho friend
liness of hla master and haunted her
premises persistently, wbllo the Day
ton puppy chewed up her door mat and
the evening paper.
Hy spring Miss Mattie was actually
showing signB of tho strain. There
was a little pucker of worry between
her eyes, and sho really dreaded the
season of out-door living and garden
making. It was a shame, for she was
ardently fond of gardening.
Happy that sho waa freo from ob
servation, Miss Mayno dug contented
ly In a warm, early bed cloeo to tho
sheltering hedge. Sho even Indulged
'in a little song quite under her
Jbrenth. Other contented Ilttlo sounds
presentl; mingled with (her own and,
turning, sho saw, coming through a
hole In tho hedge, tho sprlghtlieat of
yellow balls of fluff with sharp, In
quisitive eyes, and busy feet. "Oh,
you darlings," cried Miss Mattie, and
tho chickens ran and picked familiar
ly at her fingers. "Hut you must go
back tho way you camo, you naughty,
runaway babies!" And sho began
tucking them back through tho nolo
in tho hedgo. As sho stooped to push
tho last ono through, someono's fingers
closed over hers and released them as
Miss Wattle fied precipitately. "How
ahould I know ho was on tho other
Bide coaxing them back?" Bho cried,
washing her bauds vehemently, "Oh,
a friendly enemy Is worso than a,
grouchy ono! I wish he'd go away "
She wni preparing supper, still In a
perturbed state of mind, when hur
ried steps sounded on her front porch,
ml hastening forward she beheld two
strangerB carrying In the limp form
of her enemy next door.
"We'll lay him hens on tho sofa,
Ma'am," they said, "and then get the
doctor. Ho slipped on the crosswalk
and the front wheel of the car went
over him. Ho was conscious long
enough to tell us whero ho lived."
And sho stood alone, looking at the
unconscloun man stretched on her hall
The old doctor looked grave. "They
made a mistake In tho house. If It
doesn't disturb you. I would rather not
move him until wo seo which way It
"Certainly not," Hald Miss Mattie
quietly. "Would ho bo more comfort
able In a bed? Havo one of tho men
call his housekeeper." And Bho went

and her cheeks went crimson
His recovery was tedious at first;
when he did begin to mend ho begged
to bo taken homo. "Certainly not, tin
till you aro able." remonstrated Mat
tie, "unlesB you aro uncomfortable
here?" bIio amended,
"1 can't bear to bo making you so
much trouble," he said uerlotmly. He
seemed to have lost his cheerfulness.
At last ho wiib able to Bit up und to
receive callers, and ono day Bho ad
mitted a stranger who remained for
Bomo time. When. tho man watt gone.
1'hlllp Dayton called lied to his room.
"That man wantb to buy my place,

"And you aro going to sell?" shq
"That depends, t do not believe ho

"Why, yours," said MIsb Mattie.
"You like it better?"
"Any ono can seo" she began, ant
"Thon suppose you Bell him thli

the other. I'll deed It to you."
"Oh," murmured MIbb Mattlo. as h
took both her hands In his and drew
her down upon the edge of tils sofa.
"Don't you knOw," continued this
very domineering man with a return
of his old cheerfulness, "that I cannot
go hack there alone? Don't you know
that you do not want me to, Mattlo,
"Hut. sho gasped, "what can I say
to Mary I-ane nnd the others?"
"Tell them," he Bald, holding hot
with romarkablo strength for a sick
man, "that It wob tho only way you

Sometimes In winter, when the snow
drifts were so deep that ono of the
big boys had to take him to the

white-haired fellow would drop asleep
