An Unconscious Ally
HnHr TTTTTt'TTTJlT i i m
I HAVE always had a remarkably large
number of friends of my own sex.
Lest this should lead people ta give me
an undue amount of credit for amia
bility and sweetness of disposition, I
may as well state at once that I have a
Being possessed also of a fair amount
of brains, I was never for a moment de
ceived as to the nature of the affection
lavished upon me by most of my female
friends. But then my dearest chum, the
girl I really thouglit loved me for my
self alone, told me she was engaged to
be married to my brotner red, my
grief and anger knew no bounds.
I had goner over to stay all night with
Maud, and had laid awake till three a.
m. exchanging confidences, and all the
time the sneak never said a word about
Fred. At last I dropped off to sleep and
was just in the midst of a glorious
dream, in which I was leading a cotil
lon with a magnificent man with soul
ful eyes and a bank account in seven fig
ures, when Maud suddenly threw her
arms about my neck, entirely shutting
t)ff my wind and scaring me almost into
nervous prostration, and wrth a burst
of tears confessed that she had been
keeping a secret from me for two whole
days, nnd.that we were to be xeallv.
'truly sister! s, 'not-,just sisters in affec-J
tion, as heretofore, etc.
I managed to wriggle out from under
Maud's arm, and then I sat up in bed
nnd said things. I don't remember ex
actly what they were, but they must
have been pretty bad, for Fred didn't
speak to mcforaiveck (of course, Maud
had to tell him), and Maud herself went
around looking like a suffering martyr
whenever we chanced) to' be under the
I was convinced that I was the most
miserable girl in the world after that,
and the worst of it was that everybody,
including Maud herself, thought I was
only mad because she was engaged first,
an imputation which I need not say was
I'm sure I could not see what Maud
had done that was so wonderful any
way. Fred is anything but brilliant,
and I never considered him even good
looking, while as long as mamma lives
he hasn't a penny to his name except his
salary, which is by no means princely.
But Maud ! You'd have thought she'd
landed a Vanderbilt or a poet-laureate
the way she acted.
I pretended not to notice her airs and
nursed my grief in proud silence, but I
had no doubt that I was the most
wronged and unhappy creature that
ever lived until subsequent events
taught me that our affairs are arranged
by an all-wise Providence, in whom we
may safety trust, no matter how dark
our way may seem at the time. I shall
never doubt the wisdom of Providence
To begin with, I found that I was like
ly to get a lot of amusement out of this
engagement. Fred was madly jealous
of Maud all the time, though anyone
could see with half an eye that she was
simply mad a-out himand in deadly
fear of losing tra herself.
He would come home at least three
times a week, pale, haggard and wild
eyed, a man bereft of hope. The rest
of the time he was madly joyful and
talked about Maud as if she was several
degrees higher than the seraphim. It
was enough to make a St. Bernard dog
laugh just to see him.
I also found further consolation in
the fact that his state" of mind inter
fered seriously with Fred's appetite,
that I got all the extra pudding' and
things that had always fallen to his
share (Fred was always a greedy thing),
and then Percival Jones came from

Of course, all this made him desirable
beyond most other men, but I must say
the way the girls of'Archerville made
different kinds of fools of themselves
about him was enough to disgust even a
woman's rights advocate with her sex.
I need hardy say that I was smart
enough to treat Mr. Jones with marked
coolness. The first time! met him my
behavior seemed to puzzle the -pam

finally hit on a plan and went to sleep
atdayureak and slept till noon as sweet
ly and as innocentlj- as a child.
Early in the afternoon I telephoned
to Maud and asked her to go with me
out to the golf links at four o'clock.
Then I telephoned to Fred to meet us
there, and proceeded to make a fetch
ing toilet with a light heart. When
we reached the links there was Mr.
Jones (he had mentioned that he was
going the day before).
He was looking bored as usual, but
cheered up when I treated him with
I eluded his attempts at conversa
tion, however, and threw Maud in his
way whenever I could.
I was rewarded by seeing him seat
himself by Maud's side and com
mence a disquisition on Ibsen as Fred
came round the hill on his bicycle.
No sooner did Fred's eye light on the
couple than he commenced to glare like
a madman, and in spite of my innocent
efforts to keep him away he wound up
by being" so outrageously rude to Mr.
Jones that that gentleman was con
founded and Maud went home in tears.
As for me, I went to bed happy. My
plan was working to a charm.
A day or two later I got mamma to
ask Mr, Jones to dinner and managed
to hare him take Maud out. That set
tled it; Fred treated Perceval in such
an insulting manner that even he could
hardly overlook it, and he left early,
to mamma's distress and my secret joy.
After that I began to meet Perceval
every time I went out of the house. No

"Since your brother, who is your
guardian, dislikes me so, I cannot go
to your home," he would say, regretful
ly, and I would blubh and stammer an
apology. "But I must see you in spite
of him," Perceval would add with a
melting glance, and I would go home in
the seventh heaven.
At last, after three weeks of this sur
reptitious courtship, Perceval could
stand it no longer.
"Be my wife, Rosamond," he cried one
day. "Never mind what they say at
home; 1 must have 3-ou 1 never knew

Poor boy, he had never known the

"Let him trv," said Perceval, valiant
