"PUT TO THE PROOF."
"He is Just a foo!,"fald Miss Euphemia
This severe sentence was uttered by a tall
angular elderly lady with pepper and salt
nair and pale blue eyes; a well dressed
spinster with a solid gold chain, and hand
somer watch hooked to her waistband.
8ue was tbe owner of thecomfortably fur
nished house in lliediulng room of which this
conversation took plnie, and 'her remark
was addrcssedlo her friend and gossip Mrs.
"Well, he does not look like one. Miss
Maclaren! a pieasaHler, politer young mamv
I have never met aud they say he writes
in newspapers, and magazines and things.
It takes more than a fool to do that."
"Ohl He iscleverenoughlnone way.but
70U know there is nothing worse than a
clever fool ho doten't know how to push
bis fortunes. It's Just a ruisforturc to Max
that he has taken after his Irish father.
If be were real Scotch he wonld not neglect
his opportunities as he docs. It's Dying
in the face of Providence! I did mj best to
ktep my poor sister from marrjlug Mr
Waring, hutslie wasjuicliifatuatid "
"What has your nephew dune now, my
dear? No, no, thank you; I never take a
"Enough tu vex a saint! You have
heard me sticak of Miss Oglevie. that
Canadian girl with all the money those
ridiculous society papers have been twad
dling alwut her! Well. Max fell in love
with her at the Italian lakes last August
and was with her for a cnuplc of days.
He was "doing" some letters for the St.
Paul's Review, a beggarly concern, my
dear. Now the jouug lady has invited
aim to -visit her hi rioreuce, where she
is going tn stay the winter, and he re
fuses!" This last word In a little
scream. "Says sheVi not the sort of a
woman he could stand as a wife! Such
iionscnse If you can't stand on firty thou
sand pounds I'd like to know what sounder
6iis you cuuld find."
"Perhaps she lias a bad temper, Miss
"Nothing of the kind! She Is as good
"How do you know?"
"Well. .you see, 1 advertised fur a secre
tary awl companion wJ.ilcou were away.
Mrs. Peters, and people are so greed now
that I never had an answer to my first ad-
"vertLement; the news agent Lad the face
to tell me my terms were too low. At last
two girls came one was a regular Taupic
wanted a day out every week and I don't
know what; the other a douce, wlelite
lassie, who agreed to everything I wanted.
When I asked about her references she had
a letter from Mis Oglevie, with whom she
lived for two years. It seemed she had
given every satisfaction, and only left be
cause Miss Oglevie wanted a married lady
for a cliaperuue so I took the girlie, and
she tells me she never was so happy as
with the heiress, and that she was Just an
Miss Maclaren paused and resumed in a
lower tune. "What makes me uneasy is
that It has Just come to me like a revela
tion that since Miss Ridley came Max has
been coming to dinner twice as often as he
used, and has even got n private box-for
us at the Criterion, and is often in and
"Then, I suppose, this Miss Ridley is
pretty?" asked Mrs. rcters, a plump, roly
poly, gnodnatured little woman.
"Not she! She is a n or pale bit of a
thing. Hush," as the door opened, "here
she Is "
A small, slight girl entered, in a long,
straight, black dress, with a neat white frill
at throat and waist. She had a prettilv
shaped head, plenty of glossy, wavy, nut
brown hair; soft, thoughtful. 1-azel eyes,
and a pathetic mouth. Though Miss Mac
larcn's description i-ertalnly applied to her,
she was not unattractive.
"I have brought you the letters to look
at before 1 close tin in," she snid, in a solt,
"Oh, I'm obliged to you," not too gra
ciously. "Do you want a cup of tea?
Take it while I read the letters." Miss
Ridley declined and exchanged a few sen
tences about the weather with Mrs. Peters
while her patroness read.
"Yes, they are all right; only you might
have made them shorter."
"Shall I take them "to the post. Miss Mac
laren?" "No: don't lie restless."
"But I want to go on my own account.
I have been writing to Miss Oglevie and
must post ln'fore half -past 5.
"Oh, very -well, go. I cunnot send out
the servants at all hours."
"No, certainly not!" She smiled a good
morning to Mrs. Peters and left the room.
"No. she is no beauty," observed Mrs.
Peters when they were alone, but there Is
something taking about her."
"Designing little cat," ejaculated Miss
Maclaren. "I am certain she Is doing her
best to take In that fool or a boy! lam de
termined to tell blm not to come here
more than once a week, on Sundays, and
then I'll take her to early service."
"Ah! my dear friend! that will not do
much good. Lots or love can be made over
a prayer book."
Meantime Miss Ridley had tied on a pret
ty little black hat adorned with a branch
oN!lac,sped awayto thepostrrom whence
she diverged into Thensuigtou gardens to
enjoy the last or a fine October day.
Miss Maclaren's fine abode, being situated
In Lexmore terranee.one of the many open
ings north from the liayswater mad.
She had not gone many yards when she
heard n quick step following her, and the
next moment a pleasant, well bred voice
said: "I am In luck to meet you. Miss
Ridley. I thought there might oe a chance
It I huiot about here." She tnrned nnd
found herself face to face with a young
man ot thirty or a little more, whose keen
hanging gray eyes ill 'J on her -admiring
ly. He was a lilt lev rcr middle height,
strongly built, -well dressed, and gentleman
"I lave been to post a letter to Miss
Oglevltvand left Miss -Maclaren at tea with
Mrs. Petera." She returned a look" of
soft, lirlgut .confusion sparkling In her
eyes nnd slowing on her cheek. ""It is a
rare accident for me to be out alone."
"Then you must let me take advantage ot
it," he said, earnestly, as they walked to
wards tbe round pond.
"Did you get my letter yesterday?"
"Sue bent her bead, murmuring "I did."
I nare Iwen watching eagerly twjaar
"But It is AOttvenlT-fonrAnacaalscei
received It, and. Mr. 'Waring, your question,
was a serious one."
"To decide upon, yes; but you might hav
sent me a straw to show how the current
"I hesitate, and I want you to reflect,"
looking ijown with sweet -shyness. "Havo
you ever thought what a millstone around
a man's p-ck la man, 1 mean, -who Is strug
gling upward) a penniless wife must be?"
"Yes, It he hadn't a foothold; but when
he has gained a tolerable firm one and has
decent prospects he will find the best back
ing up lo lie n happy home with tbe woman
he loves, a real helpmate."
"Then I am afraid I am rather useless,"
and her voice sounded tremulous.
"You see. I belonged to people who were
well off and I never learned anything
"You are too Intelligent not to be use
ful. Probably you shrink from begin
ning with bristling difficulties, and cramped
by small means."
"No, no, ro!" she exclaimed, eagerly,
"I only dread being n burden, and you, yea
must not lightly throw away fortune! I
u perhaps treacherous ut me. yet I. betray
no confluence, fur I truly guess from ap
pearances; but I think Miss Oglevie was In
clined to like you from the hour . you canw
to our re-cue when 'those boatmen -at
Cnileuablita tried to Impose upon us."
"I know nothing about that. I dare say
Miss Oglevie is a good woman. I see she
is a fine one. but she is not the woman I
love. Come, be mercirul, and say if you
could care for me, or tell me to-go."
"Give me give yourself till to-morrow-It
Is a most serious question." Her voire
faltered. "Forgive meJf I am too eager,
