WMERE MEN REALLY PROPOS11

Why is it that lroes of 1.ovels in

love's young dream" amid most ro
ntie surroundings. and. of course,
er most romantie circumstances?
ust surely be an unwritten law
writers of love-stories, that dec
ions of la grande passion must
-s be aided by a "background"
e sort. Ball room eonservato
secluded spots up-river, cosy
by the sad sea, lonely moor,
ruins, upper decks of ocean
g liners, and interiors of brough
ams. are a few haphazard examples.
For instance, the dashing young
man of romance, with a name like
"Ronald Heatheote,"' the physique
of a Hercules, the face of an Adonis,
and finished off by a fine pair of clear
blue eyes," always trots the lady of
his heart (usually named "Vera" or
'Una") into a dimly-lighted con-!
servatory, where, surrounded by ex
otics, and entranced by the dreamy
strains of a waltz (generally
Btrauss!), he pours into her "shell
like ear" the story of his heart,
hopes and happiness. Ah me! how
romantic it all is! Of course, what
happens in real life is -this: Ronald
Heathcote (whose name is really Tom]
Parker) is taking his lady-love for a
ramble, when a heavy shower of
rain drives them into the shelter of
a neighboring doorway, next door to
a ehemist's, and .there, with nothing
but a harmless necessary gingham, he.
tells her, apropos of nothing at all,
that he thinks they really ought to
make a "settled thing of it," and
asks her to name vhe day.
Or again! It is sweet summer
time fin Novel-land. He and she
are floating down the stream together
-*he steering! He, of course, is a
typical short-story Apollo in spotless
and faultless Iflannels, with loose
limbs, close cropped curling brown
hair and all the rest of it! Yes,
"Hector tuthbertson" is a hand
some, broad-shouldered young fel
low, and needless to add, sculls "de
aightfully,' 'while' "NestWarringtonI"
is a sweet English flower, with sunny
eyes and a wealth of red-gold hair.
You know the style! They stop for

soothing silence of the silver stream
-in this "murmurous 'haunt of flies

she makes him the happiest fellow in
the world, and he responds as a true
hero should. And the command of
love language possessed by the pair is
remarkable. Ah me! how charming
ly it reads! 'But what really hap
pened was this: Hector's fair eomw
paion was anxious to handle the
sulls, and to achieve that object,
Hector (otherwise Fred) attempted
to change places (mid-stream). Most
unfortunately, in doing so he -fell~
into the silvery waters-as so often
happens in cases of this sort-and in
her agitation, apprehension and dis
may, Nesta (!)-I abhould say Ada
prematurely called him "Darling!"
After such -an opening, and after
drying himself, Fred naturally had
to say something more, and did so
while shivering in a borrowed suit!

beautiful moonlight evening in sweet
November-Land when two figures are
leaning over the deck rail (close to
gether) gazing dreamily at the danc
ing waves-how well we know it.
But in real life, the lady (who was
plain Gertie) was simply feeling
poorly on the boat, and Jim, in try

what a dear clinging little thing she~
