Thooe glorloua days ,.f long ago, when youth

When all our dreams were far ahead and
we were strange to rare,
Tlun splendor crowned the hills afar.
I wonder now If still they are
as mystical to those who stand to gaze upon
Ob, .I,, the youngsters of today still seek
the land of far away
And paint thelf pictures over there of
pride and poilip and fame?
And do they think, us once we did, that
when of youth they once are rid,
The tea; delights and happiness of life
they'll quickly claim?
Those golden days of long ago, when we
were all too young to know
The bitter side of life or, ere the welt of
We dreamed our dreamn of strength and age,
of deeds we'd do and wars we'd wage.
And from the distance thought mi. sa
was sudi an easy thing
I wonder now If those who sigh to reach
tho gUorlOua by-and by
sun fancy, aa era used to do, mat duty's
tasks are light?
And do they ihlnk that they shull find the
world and all Its people kind
And iiewi know a care by duy or heavy
heart by night''
Now we have left that long ago the distant
hills we've come lo know,
We've sought our dreg ma afar and near
and many a path we've turned
We've felt lb. whip and spur of life, we've
had to bear our share of strife
An. I many a truth In grief and woe and
htttetness we've learned
Success la not the easy thing It seemed to
be In dreams of spring
There's much to hear and much lo face
and many a cruel test.
Mue still, despite the lines of care which
weary men and women wear.
Youth ehorlehee Its aplendld dreams and

CHAPTER I. XV.
Before I turned und surreptitious
ly glanced around 1 knew It kaj

tail ing. 1 had him n no onv Ilea that
I knew. Hut I assured myself that
It yvas be, then hurtled on my way;
my fin e flushing with anger and
In the qul k. casual glance I
thieyv behind me I bad noted the
style and beauty of the woman to
w hom Hob's ft lend bad boon talk
ing, ond I fairly trembled with iage
ns I re. ailed the words he had used
In describing me. I was a "slick" a
"strait-laced tomnlo" from whom he
fell like praying to he delivered
And they had pitied Bob because be
yvas tied to m as Mr. Langworlh
bad oApresacd it. A nice crowd for
Bob to be running around with-
Moh Just what Mr Iingworth had
said and alao des. rlhed the woman
with him. "I hope you will be ready
to believe me when i aay they are
not proper people for you to asso
ciate with. The Idea of pltlng you I
I should think il would make you
Bob made no reply, and I per
Slstcd "Did you hear what I said'.'"
"Yes. I am not deaf."
"And you do not resent Ids pity?"
"We'll not talk about lliat."
While talking to Hob all the Indig
nation I had felt when 1 heard my
self discussed hy Kred I.iugworth
returned, I could bear again the
mocking laughter of the handsome
Woman With him, and I lost all con
trol of myself. I raged and storm
ed I declared thai I would do
something desperate unless Mob
swoto he never would have anything
to do with such people again. They
had Insulted mo, and htm through
me. He must resent It by dropping
"Hut suppose Wed Langworth
told the truth." Hob said calmly as
I stopped for lack of breath to go on.
"Suppose you were Just what ho
said you were. Would you then
have caUBe for complaint V" Hob in
terrupted me to ask.
"You don't understand. Hob' he
eotted mo a 'stick' und other horrid
"Aren't you rather stt nil -lin ed.
Margaret? I believe that was one of
the names he palled yon. And even
1 hnvo thought you rather unlnler
oRiIng at times when you would talk
of nothing but tho servant or the
Ills of the children. That was what
he meant when he compared you
to a piece of wood. Poor Prodi lie
would feel dreadfully If he knew you
had overheard him. He wouldn't
hurt the feeling of a child."
I wa trantll tt was unbeliev
able. My own busl-and making excuse
for Ilie man' who had so Insulted
me. I Wondered If other men were
tike that. I wished 1 had told Klsln
first before 1 mentioned It to Mob.
Her advice wa alway to keep any
thing which belittled you from your
husband. But I hadn't talked tn
her! and I HAD told Hob. and tic
bad been simply contemptuous of
the entire affair. So finding t hat
my anger, my complaint, did kot
move him, i commenced to cry. At
first 1 sol. bed ln a low tone, but as
he went on reading 1 cried harder
and harder, until he threw down his
paper with an unaccustomed onth.
and flung himself out of the room
and out of the house. I held my
breath tit I heard the front door
open and plOOOi then the elevator
stop to take him down.
I run M ildly to tho window to call
hi m back, but he never looked up
although 1 was sure he heard me
Tomorrow A Night of Walling.
POOpla that didn't hesitate to crltl
clae me, his wife, and to pity htm.
I would loll htm Just what 1 had
beard. Perhaps he would see that
bis Mohemlan frb ml were not as
perfect an be would have me think.
"I met one of your friends today."
I told 1 ii at dinner, trying to keep
thl- Indignation I felt from my voice.
"You did' who wan II?" he asked.
"That fellow you Introduced me to
at the Bevourt. Mr. Iangyvorth."
Up to the time I mentioned tho
name Hob had shown tittle or no in
terest. Now however he was all at-
"Where did you see him'"'
"At the restaurant where I had
"Did ytu speak to him?"
".v..! he spoke to me."
"What did he have to say. Hen
usually well worth listening to."
"He -aid I was a 'stick' ft 'Htralt
Ikcod female and that he pitted
"What are you talking about.
Margaret? Krc.l Langworth never
said such things to you that la. un
less he's gone crazy."
"Ho may ba eraay for all I know,
hut he certainty said lust what I
have told you he did. It makes no
difference that he aald II to some
one else an long ns i overheard It."
Will you tell mo what you are
talking about. Margaret?"
"I am telling you what your friend
"YOU must have misunderstood
"I did not misunderstand, he wa
altogether too plain 111 Ills speech."
I replied, then went on and told
