"I suppose you're right," I sighed,
"but it seems hard."
"Supposer' questioned my wife.
"I know," I corrected myself hastily.
"You should," she said. "Do you

I knelt down beside her.
"Then don't you think it would be

the handkerchief to her eyes. "We

were silent a long time while the

about us. But . inexplicably enough, I

It was cn the morning following that
oar match-making schemes took a
more decisive torn, and the situation
which I had resolved to let strictly
alone began of itself to develop in a
way that really seemed crucial or 1
had better say, final.
Dearest and I were playing a fast
game of tennis on the court down by
the lodge, which was in better condi
tion then the ones nearer the castle,
and werne hard at i-V with the satisfy
tavAfirwT armar ar cmr auM/r
lug consciousness that things were go
ing well with our loverers pervading
every stroke. We had observed with
pleasure on the evening previous that
Archibald had done nothing but de
vote himself to Agatha Sixth, and had
brought his devotion in public to a
well-managed termination by Inviting
the girl out for a stroll on the terrace
"to see the moon!" Happy excuse for
seeing each other! Time-honored and
time-worn, but as good as new to each
frosh pair of lovers! And from this
moonlight walk Agatha had augured,
and I had boped, great things.
Then again early that morning we
had seen them depart for a drive to
the village, where lt seemed young
Miss Lawrence had an errand. I don't
know that I have mentioned before
that Lawrence was Agatha Sixth's last
name, just as Endicott was Agatha
First's. I have grown so used to re?
ferring to them as Arch and I were
accustomed to do in the days when
there was a necessity for keeping
their Identities a secret beyond the
knowledge of their first names, that
I'd almost forgotten they had any
The best part of the thing was that
although they had only two miles to
go, the pair had not yet returned. And
lt was now high ..con. Dearest
couldn't get over it, and frisked and
hooped so, I had to beg her to remem
ber that she was playing tennis and
not "cup and ball."
. "Forty love!" I called across the
net, serving my fast serve that I sel
dom use against my wife, in my pre
occupation as my thoughts would per
sist in dwelling upon Arch and bis
love affair rather than upon the game.
"I say, do you think they can have
"That's too good to hope for!" re
turned Agatha, though she was not so
Fell to Playing 8ome
successful with the ball. "Game!" I
cried, as it smashed into the net But
for once Dearest was not vexed with
me for winning. With a smile so ab
stracted and clairvoyant as to make
me guess at once the tenor of her
thoughts, she picked lin the ball and
wandered back to the service line.
"Ready!" she called, but Instead
ol' serving, suddenly let her racquet
fall clattering to the ground.
"Wilfred!" she cried, as if a happy
thought had struck her, "do you sup
pose he will ask her toda>?"
"More than likely !" I answered ex
uberantly, and then, coming close up
to the net, "but I say, sweetheart,
arsn't you going to play any more?"
"0, yes!" she cried, starring and
stooping quickly to recover her
racquet. "Of course I am! I waa
only just thinking-"
"So was I! But don't let's any more,
or we can't play the game!" So we
succeeded in putting all thought of the
two out of our heads and fell to play
ing some pretty fast tennis.
Agatha First, 1 may explain, in the
meantime was playing golf all by her
self down on the course by the river.
Dearest had offered her the escort of
young Leslie Freer, the rector's son,
who lived down in the village, but
she would have none of him, to my
dismay. In fact I had begun io feel
conscience-stricken almost for fear
we were neglecting the poor a?n in
our absorption in our other two
guests, but Dearest had reassured me
by saying she thought Agatha First
waa the _ind of girl who preferred
out-of-door exercise and her own com
pany to any number of young men.
I had just succeeded in making the
score of a hotly contested game
"deuce" again, when the dog cart in
which Ter h une and Miss Lawrence
had driven off that morning appeared,
approaching briskly from the direction
of the castle where* Terhune had ap
parently left bis companion ou his
way to tbe stables.
"Yantage in! Game!" called my
wife triumphantly. "You're no good
at all, Wilfred." "Game, set," I re
piled. "Wonderful good tennis, Dear
est," and dropping our racquets, we
went to speak to Arch. -
I wouldn't have told Dearest for the
world, of course, but the truth waa
that in spite of my praise of her play
ing, I had let her beat
"CJouldn't you rind a groom to take
the cart down for you?" I inquired
rather indignantly as Terhune came to
a halt in the road. "Lazy beggars,
those grooms!" ,
"The butler told me you peopl?
were down here playing tennis," said
Arch, "and I waa in such a hurry to
Bee you I brought it down myself.
Thought I'd walk back with you,
Agatha held out her hands to him
eagerly as he got down and stood be
"Then you've got something to tell
us!" Bhe cried, "you havel-I know
"Tn a way-yes!" he answered, "but
it's not what you think, at least not
exactly. By Jove, Vincent!" turning
to me, "I'm in an awful mesa! A beast
ly unfortunate dilemma, don't you
"But I don't know! What's the trou
ble, Arch? Tell us!"
"Yes, tell us!" urged my wife.
. "Well, you see," began the old boy,
-and he mopped his brow with his
handkerchief in an anxious way that
made me feel quite sorry for him,
"you see the way of lt was, I went
and asked her all right, but-" he
"But what! What did she sayr
cried Dearest and I together.
"For heaven's sake!" I added, as he
still stammered, "get it out!"
"St j said," he replied grandly,
"t\at she cared for me."
; "Then what on earth are you put
ting on such a long face about?" I
roared, and Dearest asked him anx
iously what was wrong about that
"Why, the trouble is," he told us,
getting more and more serious, "that
in spite of that admission she wont
give me a definite answer until a
month from now!"
"But she can't'walt that long}" I
expostulated, as if Terhune himself
were to blame for this complication.
"Don't you see that if you're not actu
ally and for a fact engaged by the
end of this week you might as well
Pretty Fart TennU.
not be engaged at all, at least as far
aa your aunt's property is concerned?"
"I know," he said. "Nobody sees
that any plainer than I do. .Thara
why. I'm so upset. What can have pos
sessed the girl, do you suppose? I
didn't think she was the trifling
"Nonsense," declared my wife, a' . or
itatively, "a little coquetry In the right
place ls perfectly admissible! She
didn't want to make it too easy for
you, that's all. Very feminine, and
quite delightful of her, I call it!"
"That's all very well," replied Ter
hune with some heat "and proper
enough I dare say! But think what
that same coquetry may cost me!"
And* you could see as he said lt that
he already beheld in his mind's eye
that third cousin of his aunt's sitting
on the veranda of the house on bis
aunt's property in Australia, with his
feet on the railing. - -
. "Well, if that's all you care about!
If you're only interested In getting1
that silly old fortune of your aunt'B.I
hope, yes, I positively hope, that she
will keep you walting until lt ls too
late!" said Dearest unexpectedly.
Terhune stared In surprise at this
point of view and I own I couldn't
help siding with him a little.
"But my dear girl," he protested,
"how can I help being Interested in
lt? A fortune's a fortune, and besides,
isn't it for her, too, that I want lt, as
well as myself? And then, you know,
how absurd it is if she's going to ac
cept me anyway, as I'm rather sure
she ls, that Bhe can't say so in time
to get me a fortune as wei' "Ba wife?"
"Come, now!" I put in, "that does
seem reasonable, doesn't it Dearest?"
."I thought you understood better
than that, Wilfred," she said, with a
look almost of severity at me, and to
Terhune. "I see you must be chastened
still further, Archibald," she told him,
"until you learn what true love ia!
'Disinterested, unselfish love!"

i SOOTH CAROLINA. I
Superintendent D. J. Griffith Has
Made a Grand Success.
The State peintentiary in the fiscal
ye^t turned into the State treasury
$70,000 in cash, representing the
profits: of the year. The State peni
tentiary was established as a prison
and for years was not eren self-su |
faining. Today it is a producer of
revenue. Under former superintend
ents its scope developed gradually
and today it stands clear of debt and
hEU? $76,000 in bank with which to
start the year on a cash basis.
The total income of the institution
lats year as shown in the report of
the superintendent, Capt. D. J.
Griffith, was $137,288.16. The operat
ing expenses were $75,805.07, perma
nent improvements $8,447.19, leaving
a net balance of $61,433.09, to which
is to be added the account due for
convict hire from responsible persons
$6,500. The grand total of profit for
the year is therefore $67,983.09, or
within a few dollars of $68,000.
When he was elected superintend
ent 12 years ago, Capt.. Griffith re
ceived as the cash assets of the in
stitution, $83, and along with this was
a floating indebtedness of several
thousand dollars, money due on
notes to the Carolina National bank.
Since that time-in addition to? many
physical improvements made, in ad
dition to paying into the State treas
ury $160,000, in addition to paying
off all floating debts-the institution
