Cynthia leaned back and let the mo
torboat travel aimlessly down the riv
er; she was undecided what to do with
her afternoon. If only things hap
pened in real life as they did in those
enchanting magazine stories ! ?
In such a setting as this, something
delightfully unexpected would be sure
to befall n magazine heroine. Yet hore
was Cynthia, her fourth week at the
Point, and each day following another
In tiresome sameness. She had read
until interesting episodes merely pro
voked by contrast to commonplace re
alities. She had not even tried to be
companionable with the uninteresting
young men who made the hotel their
headquarters while fishing or sailing
the river. The woman guests also were
very ordinary with their constant plan
ning for dances and their endless ver
Her one pleasant relaxation was a
dally visit to the lighthouse, whose
white tower showed far away. There
was a tiny carden at the back of the
lighthouse and room enough beyond
for Cynthia to moor her small boat.
The old keeper of the Point, who was
quite a famous character with habi
tues, was deaf, but he exacted little
conversation from his visitors, enter
taining them instead, with true tales
worthy of the magazines to which
Old Charlie's life had been one of
adventure. There was a love story
woven through it too, a story with a
sad ending, which had not embittered
the old man's cheery spirit. Cynthia
loved to listen to his life story swing
ing in Charlie's hammock and speak
ing her admiration afterward-which
would bring a gleam of pleasure to
the seaman's eyes-of his perfect
housekeeping. For the seaman's home
.was the lighthouse. Hfl bunk fitted
one end of the spotless kitchen.
On cloudless days Cynthia used to
climb up the narrow stair to the high
upper balcony. The view from here
was magnificent and the peaceful quiet
most inspiring. Old Charlie had many
visitors, but Cynthia was favorite of
Cynthia anchored her boat and
climbed the incline to the lighthouse
door. Charlie was not in sight He
had gone, no doubt, for his daily sup
plies and would soon return. Cynthia
decided to ascend to the high balcony
and to "look the landscape o'er."
She noticed as she came through the
small Iron door that clouds "no bigger
than a man's hand" were scurrying
across the sky. The swift breeze they
occasioned came to her gratefully ; the
day had been exceedingly hot. Hyp
notically she watched the break of the
" waves ns she-crouched against the iron
door. Then Cynthia fell asleep, lt
was a rude beating blast which
aroused her to consciousness and to
the realization that the afternoon was
far spent and a quick storm brewing.
She stood up clinging to the railing
as the wind flapped her skirts and
wondering'whether It would be wise tc
venture now upon the homeward trip
In her tiny craft or to await in old
Charlies comfortable kitchen the
cessation of the storm. As heavy
drops fell upon her upturned face she
decided upon the lutter course and
turned to open the tower's iron door.
Then with a gasp of dismay Cynthia
found that she had thoughtlessly
closed the door, which locked with a
spring and could only be opened from
the Inner side.
Propping herself In a vise between
door and rail Cynthia sat, the wind
tearing at her, the rain falling upon
her unprotected head. In a last futile
effort she crept slowly around the high
tower, though she knew there was na
other means of descent save through
the closed iron door. She could cry, of
course, but who could heed her sob
bing? No, she must hopelessly cling
a bit of human driftwood, buffeted bj
By and by the lights would gleam
out around her, showing across the
angry waters-still she would be alone
-perhaps throughout the night. It
would not likely occur to those at the
hotel that she had ?topped at the light
house. They would be more likely to
think her safely sheltered iu the Yacht
Peering through her wet hair, Cyn
thia discerned at last another motor
boat making its troubled way through
the wat|j-it had touched shore-old
Charlie perhaps returned from his er
rand. Cynthia determined to scream;
a piercing scream might reach his dead
ear drums. But there was no response.
In her really critical position the girl
laughed tremulously. Well-hero waa
her adventure at last!
Then, just as he should-the hero
came. Sharply the Iron door was Autis
open. A severe young man scowled
down upon the crouching girl.
"Just as I expected," he said angrily,
"and your daring might have led you
to even more than thl#, Cynthia."
Masterfully the hero gathered the
crestfallen wet little figure up in his
arms; inside the door, he waited.
"When I arrived at the hotel this
afternoon and they told me that you
had gone ont in your boat I searched
for you at every possible haunt. This
was the last which occurred to lue
Have you had enough of adventure
hunting. Cynthia? Are you ready now
to settle down into the humdrum life
you professed to scorn? I still want
yon very much dear."
"Yrs. Vm ready," Cynthia answered
neekly, and her lover carried her OD
?own the stair.
