"Yes, father," murmured Lizzie, a
faint llttlo pucker at her lips.
"I'm going to look at one up at
Norwich tonight. If it's reasonable,
I may think it over."
Old Daniel Bangs drove off in the
rlcketty family surrey with slow pa
tient Dobbin attached. Lizzie waved
her hand after him In a forlorn sort
of a way. That word "automobile"
had touched a soro spot in Lizzie's
There was only one young man in
tho district whom Lizzie loved and
an automobile hada parted them. Ned
Darrow had been keeping company
with her for a year; His folks lived
on the next farm one-half a mile dis
tant and he worked in a garage at
Norwich. The charm of Lizzie's com
pany brought him homo regularly
every evening. There was a con
stant companionship and consequent
Then the Bellows family did what
nearly all the progressive farmers
In the district were doing bought an
automobile. And then for three eve
nings Ned did not put in an appear
ance at the Bangs home. A gossipy
neighbor dropped in to tell Mrs.
Bangs of "the scand'lous doings down
nt the Bellows farm." Three after
noons in succession "that young Dar
row had come there to take out Miss
Olive in the new automobile!"
"If it was anybody but Olive Bel
lows!" Lizzie had said to herself re
sentfully, as she recalled that a year
previous Ned had been very friendly
with the young lady in question.
The fourth evening Ned came to
the Bangs home, Mrs. Bangs treated

him rather coldly and Lizzie went up
to her room without seeing him, re
porting a sick headache.
The next day when Miss Bellows
drove by alone proudly exhibiting
her skill as an expert chauffeur, Liz--'e
went straight to her father.
"We must get an auto, papa," she
'nslsted. Everybody else is and we
jn't want to be back numbers."
Mr. Bangs was indulgent and the

'ices charged staggered the thrifty,
aicful larnier, however, and no bar-

oo that evening, left alone to wait
,or the return of the family from a
.lative's, Lizzie had some rather bit
ter relloctions. She was really
plteful because Miss Bellows could
narade around, in a new shiny four
cylinder. She felt resentful towards
aer lover for a new reason.
He had Bent her a note chiding her
for declining to see him when be
called. Ned added a line saying that
ho would like to make an explanation
of some things that his lady Jove had
Lizzie would possibly have relent
ed and would have sent for him, but
not two hours since the Bellows ma
chine had come whizzing down the
road, Miss Olive at the wheel and the
perfidious Ned by her side.
"I shall never speak to him again!"
resolved Lizzie, as her father drovo
There were no ltghts In the house
and she closed and locked tho front
door. Then she went out Into tho
I garden and planned to sit In the rus
I tic summer house and wait there till
the folks returned.
That cherished spot, however,
brought up poignant memories of
'hours when Ned had been by her
, side, Lizzie in a desolate, unhappy
j way, went way over to a corner of
the garden where a network of vines
Inclosed an old-fashioned tree seat.
I The loneliness and seclusion led to
tears now. Lizzie fairly cried herself
It must have been an hour later
when the phug-chug of a machine
"It's an automobile and It's stop
ping here," she murmured. "Thy are
strangers and they have driven tho
machine into the shadow of tho trees.
Lizzio shivered as she thought of
the reports from the next township
of a band of robbers who had raided
a score of farmhouses whllo tho occu
pants were absent.
Two men silently and mysteriously
stolo paBt tho gate, glanced up at tho
grim, silent house, went around to its
side and then the affrighted Lizzio
heard a window raised.
"Oh, they aro robbers, sure
enough!" she, gasped. "They havo
broken into tho house. What shall I
A sudden inspiration came to her
mind as she glanced at the automo
bile. She did not believe she could
quite run one alone, but sho know a
good deal about its construction from
"I can creep under the fence, reach
the machine and they can't see me,"
she planned. "Then I'll hurry down
the road and give tho alarm."
Lizzie reached the- stalled machine.
She leaped nimbly to Its step. For
only a moment her hand was busy
groping over its mechanism. A little
flutter of excitement and satisfaction
escaped her lips as she slipped some
thing Into her pocket Then Lizzio
sped down tho shadowy road with
"Oh, dear! I wish I had gone the
other Way but then tho robbers
might hayo seen me," she breathed, as
at a turn tho first window light that
showed was in the Darrow farmhouse,
a quarter of a mile away.
Lizzie halted as she came directly
up to the house. There was a light
In only one room and beyond Its open
window sat the only occupant of the
house. It was Ned, at a table, writ
ing. Lizzie faltered. Then tho urgency
of the occasion Impelled her to ac
tion. She ran into the full radius of
tho bright lamplight streaming out
Into the garden.
"There's robbers at our house and
the folks are all away," she cried out,
and Ned was on his feet in an Instant.
He was outside, a gun in band, be

"Tell me all about It as wo hurry
back," ho directed, and she thrilled to
feel the firm, steady clasp of his hand
on her arm as he urged her to tho
Lizzie could never tell afterwards
how she hlurted out her story or how
she acted during that wild run. She
lost all her resentment, once again In
that dear companionship.
"There they are," she fluttered, as
they came in sight of home and the
figures of two men were to be ob
served moving about the automobile.
The machine was loaded with plunder
they had taken from the house.
Ned shouted at them and then fired
a shot In the air. That was the last
of the robbers.
"I don't see why they didn't make
off with the machine," ho remarked.
"Why, I had taken away the spark
key," explained Lizzie, producing the
article In question.
"You wise little woman!" exclaimed
Ned admiringly. "Come back to the
old loving arms, darling," he added,

Dosem, an old village quack, found
the calls and fees did not como fast
enough to please him, so he added an
apothecary shop to his business for
the sale of drugs and medicines.
He had a great sign painted to at
tract the wondering eyes of the vil

in front of his shop and explain its
beauties to the gaping beholders.
One of these was an Irishman, who
gazed for a while with a comical look,
and then exclaimed:
"Och! and by the powers, doctor, if
it isn't fine. But there's something a
little bit wanting in it"
"And what, pray, is that?" asked the
"Why, ye see," said Pat, "you've
got a beautiful sheet of wather here,
and not a bit of a bird swimming
"Aye, yes," replied tho doctor,
"that's a good idea. I'll have a couple
of swans painted there. Wouldn't
they be fine?"
"Faith, and I don't know but they
would," said Pat: "but I'm after think
ing there's another kind of a bird that
would be more appropriate.
"And what is it?" asked the doo
tor. "Why, I can't exactly think of his
name jlst now, but he's one of them
kinds of birds that when ho sings he
cries, 'Quack, quack, quack, quack!'"

h QUESTION OF TASTE I
H Py WINIFRED GREY. $
Mary Preston looked around her
cozy living-room with pride and satis
faction. She had accomplished much
in ono short year of married lite and
was very happy in planning and
scheming to furnish the little homo
piece by piece, as they could afford
Tho one thing most needed now was
a hearth-rug. A few days ago sho had
seen Just tho thing while helping her
sister-in-law to choose a rug. She had
said nothing about It to John.
A step on the porch broke in upon
"A rug for Mrs. Preston. Shall I
leave It here?"
"Yes, thank you," Mary replied,
"How dear of John," sho thought,
even though a slight feeling of disap
pointment Bwept over her aB sho re
membered the rug she had set her
Dragging it Into the living-room she
cut the string and unrolled the envel
oping paper. At first glimpse she
caught her breath. It was too dread
ful to be true! On tho floor of the
room that stood for good taste and re
finement to both John and herself lay
one of-tho atrocities that her very soul
On a florid field with a background
of yellow rocks, an impossible deer
with branching antlers, head in the air
and legs outstretched, was depicted
jumping from one crag to another.
It was Incredible that John should
chooso such a thing; and equally un
believable that she should think her
capable of appreciating it.
Then a saving sense of humor forced
a laugh. "Dear old John," she said,
"he has indeed given me a surprise."
How It asserted Itself In the quiet
room! He could not fall to see how In
congruous it was, she thought, even
ns she resolved that he should never
know how sho felt about It. He had
been so good; surely she could for
onco sacrifice her feelings for his
sake. For once! It would bo levery
day that she must see that deer leap
ing through space.
Pulling the despised rug Into pqsl
tlon before the fireplace, she walked
to the doorway from which her hus
band would catch the first glimpse of
It. She would know as soon as she
saw his face, how he helt about it
He was coming now; and before ho
stepped over the Bill, her arms were
around his neck.
"Oh, John," she cried, "it was such
"Has it come?" heasked. "Walt till
I take off my coat, and we'll have a
look at It."
It seemed to Mary tnat he was
much longer than usual getting out of
"How does It match up with the
room?" ho asked; but Mary was too
busy straightening the rug to hear.
"Gorgeous, isn't it?" he said.' "You
like it, dear?"
"It's It's wonderful," she replied,
trying to keep her voice from shak
ing; for he had failed her. He reallj
liked It The little home they had
made together seemed falling about
"I'm glad If you like it, darling,"
John said; but his voice sounded dull
and tired. She feared he had noticed
her lack of enthusiasm, and hastened
to tell him again what a surprise it
"You're sure it's what you wanted?"
"It's a dear," she replied, and they
laughed over the poor little joke.
Each passing day made it harder for
Mary to see tbe-hated rug on thejloor.
It had not only spoiled the room for
her, but had shaken her confidence
in her husband's taste.
There were times when she felt that
she must open her heart to him; that
her silence came between them.
One day she met him at the door,
with an .open letter in her hand.
"John!" she cried, "Aunt Beth wants
to spend the week with us!"
"Just the thing! You have not been
yourself of late, and seeing her will "
"No," she interrupted, "you must
Wire her not' to come. I can't have
"Not havo her! Why?"
"She Is so critical " stammered
"Not critical, dear; she has the best
of taste of anyone I know what's the
matter, Mary? Isn't the house all
"Oh, John, it's perfect; but I can't
have her. I can't!"
Bursting into tears she threw her
self into his arms.
"Now, darling, what is it?" he
"It's It's," she sobbed. "Ob, I'm
horrid, but it's the rug."
"The rug?" echoed John, more at
sea than ever. "Have you changed
your mind about it? Dont you like
it after all?"
"I never liked It; I loathed it from
the first; I deceived you."
"But I don't understand. Why did
you choose It?"
"You didn't ask Jackson to put It
aside for you?"
"Never! It must have been Jane--she
was looking at rugs. I didn't even
see tho awful thing. Oh, John! You
didn't really Jike it, then?"
"I? That horror!"
"But why " stammered Mary.
"Because I did not wish to hurt you,
little girl," he said; "but it was a bit
ter blow when I discovered ay wife's
taste In rugs."
