"It seems that the gentle Bella has
been unusually beastly today to Jim,
and-I believe she's jealous of you,
Kit Jim followed her up to the roof
before dinner with a box of flowers,
and she tossed them over the parapet.
She said, I believe, that she didn**.
want his flowers: He could buy them
for you, and be damned to him, or
some lady-Uke equivalent."
"Jim is a Jellyfish." I said con
temptuously. "What did be say?" I
"He said he only cared for one wom

had really cared for you and never
would, and that divorce courts were
not unmitigated evils if they showed
people the way to real happiness.
Which wouldn't amount to anything
If Harbison had not been in the tent,
trying to sleep!"
Dal did not know all the particulars,
but it seems that relations between
Jim and Mr. Harbison were rather
strained. Bella had left the roof and
Jim and the Harbison man came face
to face in the door of the tent. Ac
cording to Dal, little had been said,
but Jim, bound by his promise to me,
could not explain, and could only
stammer something about being an
old friend of Miss Knowles. And Tom
bad replied shortly that it was none
of his business, but that there were
some things friendship hardly justi
fied, and tried to pass Jim. Jim was
instantly enraged: He blocked the
door to the roof and demanded to
know what the other man meant
There were two or three versions cf
the answer he got The general pur
port was that Mr. Harbison had no
desire to explain further, and that
the situation was forced on him. But
if he insisted-when a man system

wife for some one else, there were
communities where he would be tarred

Individually our pride was at low

played Grieg with the soft stops on,
and Aunt Selina went to bed. The
weather had changed, and it was
sleeting, but anything was better than

was reciting "Give me three grains or
cora, mother," threw somebody's over
coat over my shoulders, put on a
man's soft hat-Jim's I think-and
went up to the roof.
It was dark in the third floor hall,
and I had to feel my way to the foot
of tho stairs. I went up quietly and
turned the knob of the door to the
roof. At first it would not open, and
I could hear the wind howling out
side. Finally, however, I got the door
open a little and wormed my way
through. It was not entirely dark
out there, In spite of the storm. A
faint reflection of the street lights
made it possible to distingush the out
lines of the boxwood plants, swaying
in the wind, and the chimneys and
the tent And then-a dark figure
disentangled itself from the nearest
chimney and seemed to hurl itself at
me. I remember putting out my
hands and trying to say something,
but the figure caught me roughly by
the shoulders and knocked me back

away a heavy voice was saying, "So

from under rae, and I was floating out
on the storm, and sleet was beating
in my face, and the wind was whis
pering over and over, "Open your
eyes, for God's sake!"
I did open them after a while, and
finally I made out that I was lying on
the floor in the tent The lights were
on, and I had a cold and damp feeling,
and something wet was trickling
down my neck.
I seemed to be alone, but In a sec
ond somebody came into the tent, and
I saw it was Mr. Harbison, and that
he had a double handful of half melt
ed snow. He looked frantic and de
termined, and only my sitting up
quickly prevented my getting another
snow bath. My neck felt queer and
stiff, and I was very dizzy. When he
saw that I was conscious he dropped
the snow and stood looking down at
"Do you know," he said grimly,
"that I very nearly choked you to
death a little while ago?"
"It wouldn't surprise me to be told
so," I said. "Do I know too much, or
what is it, Mr. Harbison?" I felt ter
ribly ill, but I would not let him see
it "It is queer, isn't it-how we al
ways select the roof for our little
differences?" He seemed to relax
somewhat at my gibe.
"I didn't know it was you," he ex
plained shortly. "I was walting for
some one, and in the hat you wore,
and the coat, I mistook you. That's
all. Can you stand?"
"No," I retorted. I could, but his
summary manner displeased me. The
sequel, however, was rather amazing,
for he stooped suddenly and picked
me up, and the next instant we were
out in the storm together. At the
door he stooped and felt for the

It's All My Fault.
I didn't go to the drawing room
again. I went into my own room and
sat in the dark, and tried to be furi
ously angry, and only succeeded In
feeling queer and tingly. One thing
was absolutely certain: Not the same
man, but two different men had kissed
me on the stairs to the roof. It sounds
rather horrid and discriminating, but
there was all the difference in the
But then-who had? And for whom
had Mr. Harbison been walting on the
roof? "Did you know that I nearly
choked you to death a few minutes
ago?" Then he rather expected to
finish somebody in that way! Who?
Jim, probably. It was strange, too,
but suddenly I realized that no mat

mustered up against him-and there
were plenty-down in my heart I
didn't believe him guilty of anything,
except this last and unforgivable of

the house had taken the necklace,
that seemed clear, unless Max was
still foolishly trying to break quar
antine and create one of the sensa
tions he so dearly loves. This was a
new idea, and some things upheld it,
but Max had been playing bridge
when I was kissed on the stairs, and
there was still left that ridiculous

Bella came up after I had gone to
bed, and turned on the light to brush

soon, I'll be carried out," she de
clared. "You in bed, Lollie Mercer

"If you'll put her to bed, I'll keep

"You're a dear." Bella came back
from the door. "Look here, Kit, you
kno*-' Jim pretty well. Don't you
think he looks ill? Thinner?"
"He's a wreck," I said soberly.
"You have a lot to answer for, Bella."
Bella went over to the cheval glass
and looked in it. "I avoid him all I
can," she said, posing. "He's awfully
funny; he's so afraid I'll think he's
serious about you. He can't realize
that for me he simply doesn't exist."
Well, I took Aunt Selina, and about
two o'clock, while I was in my first
sleep, I woke to find her standing be
side me, tugging at my arm.
"There's somebody In the house,"
she whispered. "Thieves!"
"If they're in they'll not get out to
night," I said.
"I tell you, I saw a man skulking
on the stairs," she insisted.
I got up ungraciously enough, and
put on my dressing- gown. Aunt Se

SHOES FOR LONG TRAMPS
Highly Important Part of Equipment
When a Girl Contemplates
Girls who have had little experience
in outdoor life often do some foolish
things when they begin to try this
form of enjoyment One way in which
many of them interfere with their own
comfort ls by going on a tramp with
the wrong kind of shoes.
? girl who has played tennis and
found the soft, rubber soled shoes
comfortable will think that they will
surely help her to enjoy a tramp; but
they are the* last thing to wear for a
long walk, as these girls have found
to their cost They come home with
their feet aching and the calves of the
legs tired out from the lack of the
spring that is given by heels. Walk
ing with a flat, heelless shoes on a
rough road is extremely trying, and
one can feel every stone through the
soft rubber soles.
Quite as bad as the tennis shoes are
low shoes with thin soles and high
heels. These tire the feet and may
sprain the ankles. The only shoes
that are really satisfactory for "rough
ing lt" are strong high shoes with
thick soles. The strongest ankles need
support in rough walking, and it is
often wet in the woods. The girl who
has once tried the two ways of tramp
ing will never again be persuaded to
wear low or thin shoes.
