R. A RZZ11. RAIN
- B y HOPE AINSt.EE.
o.:pyright. 2M15 by the McClure Newspa
A soft drialing rain was daring the
roses in Constance Atwood's cheeks
to come out and get wet. And the
roses were fast appearing as she
walked briskly through the damp
Inder path in Central park. -
It was Saturday afternoon and Con
stance had promised herself that she
would finish knitting the last of her
six pairs of socks for the soldier boys
before the Wednesday boat should
have sailed. Her small brother and
sister, being prevented by the rain
from paying out of doorm would de
mand the attention of Sister Con
stance if she were at home. There
fore she decided to seek the shelter of
a summer house in the park, where
on a day like this she was sure to
A-begatiful girl- sitting alsne in a
summer house on a cold, driding
day knitting 'socks is not an every
day picture.- Indeed it was such an
unusual sight to Donald Grey when
be came upon it that he -almost
stopped in his course to stare.
. Constance looked up casually as he
pased and her calm, level gaze met
his; then he dropped her eyes, con
inned her knitting -and the man
strode on through the winding path.
nt the ms% peace of mind had
been disturbed. Only his deei-rooted
sen of chivalry kept himi from re
trmda his steps for one more. look
at the-lovely girl. He realized that
he had only a slender chance in a
thousand of seeing her again, and
yet at that moment he could think of
-, other peraon whom he so desired
to se again-and often.
Suddenly his musin were abrupt
ly nferpted by the approach of a
big Irish park policeman leading .a
nama! e d reludantly by the hand.
ThaW ocer had to stoop .to keep a.

"Got's lost kid!" he said laughing
Donald looked at the pretty little
girl. "edaofor a youngster lik0
