man when there came a pause In the
conversation, "that I am collecting sta

The young woman sitting opposite
him laughed. He looked aggrieved.
"You don't seem to realize," he told
her, "that I am serious. Well, I am.
"I thought you were trying to be
funny," she told him. "Anyhow, you
were funny. Wouldn't you rather try
to be funny and succeed than attempt
to be serious and fail?"'
"This is no time for harassing ques
tions," the young man told her. "I am
sorry you prefer to keep secret your
favorite flower and your most admired
poem, but, of course, I respect your at
titude of reserve. However, you might
tell me something else statistical,
also. I do not ask who is your favor
ite man; I simply ask what kind of a
man is your ideal?"
"You are terribly in need of ideas
for conversation, aren't you?" com
mented the young woman.
"I think I have suggested a most in
teresting topic," the young man insist
ed. "You have no idea how devoted

right sort Why, I've seen some ugly

"Now, let's get tack to our statistics.
I suppose your ideal man is terribly
rich and could shower automobiles
and diamonds upon you with one hand
while he wrote checks with the oth
er?" "I'm sorry you have such a poor
opinion of me," said the young wom
an. "It's all right to have enough
money to pay the grocery bills and
buy decent clothes, but I never yearned
for great wealth. I think rich men are
likely to be awfully selfish and friv
olous or self-cenfered and peevish.
They don't have time to pay attention
to their families and they drift away
from their wives and get divorces

woman. "A girl likea to help the right

"What is the r'ght sort of man?" in
quired her caller, eagerly.
She smiled a little, looked airily
over his head ard then met his gaze.
"Why," she said, "I suppose the right
sort of man is the one the girl hap
pens to be in e with!"
"That sounds plausible," the young
man said. "I tl.ink you've made a
very valuable contribution to my sta
tistics, and I'm gveatly obliged to you.
More than that, It makes me happy

What the White
The world seemed very fair and
beautiful that summer morning when
I first awoke to a consciousness of its
existence and of my own life and
fragrance, and thrust a tiny white
petal out from among the close green
leaves to take my first view of it. I
was very happy In those early days.
The bees and humming-birds kissed
me as they floated lazily by and whis
pered sweet messages of the garden
life. They flattered me until I thought
I was the most beautiful thing in' the
garden until she came, and then I lost
A dream of loveliness she was as
she came down the path clottted all in
clinging pink, just the color of the
m,oss roses that grow near me, with
hair like the sunlight that lies spark
ling on the soft grass, and eyes like
dark violets. They told me she was
One day she stopped by the bush
and told us she was very happy, but
would soon be much happier; then
she patted us and called us her bridal
roses, and declared no one should
touch us until she gathered us for her
The next thing I remember was one
beautiful night when I heard steps on
the gravel, and looking up saw my
loved one coming, and with her anoth
er human, taller and not nearly so
pretty; he did not look like a flower
at all, unless it were to remind one of
the tulips. I never did care much for
them. My love was all in white, and
looked like the tall lilies that grow
near the gate.
He was speaking to her In low tones.
I could not hear what he said, but I
could hear her voice plainly. She was
saying: "Maurice, if there is any truth
in this, tell me I cannot bear to think
you would deceive me." Then I looked
up In his face It looked very white in
the moonlight. Then he said:
"Ruth, you do not understand; I
have only lived the life of the average
man." He paused then and came to
ward me I felt myself tremble with
apprehension yc s, my fears were
realized, he plucked me, and I knew
my fate was sea'ed that I would nev
er be one of her bridal roses. I thought
she started when she saw; what he had
He handed me to Ruth. "Take this
little rose, dear, as a symbol of your
purity and nobk'ness and trust me
cannot you do tl is?"
Her voice as she replied was cold
and hard I scaicely recognized it as
the same that h'.d talked so lovingly
to us. "Maurice, I am not to be trifled
with. I want to know the truth, and
you must let me be the judge as to its
significance in the weaving of our lives
"Well, then, Ruth, I will tell you"
Here I lost their conversation, for at
his first words slie dropped me on the
path and they -walked on.
I lay a long while on the rough
gravel, feeling lonely and homesick for
my swaying bush, when I was aroused
by hearing Ruth say. In broken, tear
ful tones: "Leave me, Maurice, for the
sake of my love for you, leave me."
I heard him plerd with her then he
turned suddenly and left her standing
quite near me. She stood motionless,
as though listening to catch the last
sound of his footsteps the click of
the gate sounded in the distance, and
then all was silent. At last she gave
one sob and fell all In a heap on the
gravel near me.
How I longed, to comfort her and I
think she must have felt my sympa
thy, for after a while she put out her
hand and raised me to her lips and
kissed me so terderly, that even now,
though I am old rod yellow and shriv
eled, I thrill at tie recollection. After
a while she arose and carried me into
the house and vp to her room this
was a new world to me, and I won
dered what was coming next. She
stood for a long while looking out at
the moonlit .garden, caressing me soft
ly. Finally, shej murmured: "It Is
no use, I cannot ace it." Carrying me
over to a closet she took out a tiny
bottle and slowlyi drank its contents.
I had a confused fsense of her fingers
tightening aroui d me, and then she
staggered backv.ard and fell to the
floor, and I was itlll in her hand. All
through the nightll lay there watching
her, wondering hy she lay bo Btlll
and white. Aftera while a faint glim
mer of light canie in at the window;
I heard the chlrjf of birds out in the
garden, and thei old familiar morn
ing sounds, seen Ing so faint and fad
away. How I lor ged to be down with
my companions l'xea thing in the soft
sweetness of tl te summer morning.
Everything was gloomy and unfamil
iar in the great', room and Ruth lay
so still and whi'b and did not speak
Suddenly there, was a sound of other
human voices calling Ruth's name
loudly; then a washing sound ahd two
humans came in' o the room and knelt
down beside her) with strange cries.
Tenderly they ra bed her and laid her
on the white bed. Borne one took me
out of her hand . ,aid tossed me on this
table, where I 1 ave been ever since.
Then there were low sobs and I heard
some one whlsier something about
keeping it quiet sudden death and
then I realized what had happened.
I had seen flowers die but oh, how
differently! We did not know they
were gone until the last soft petal
dropped from tl e stem. I had never
seen a human lie and she was so
sweet and beaut'iful. Buffalo Express.

HOW PAPER CAME TO BE
A Wasp In a Garden Was Irsplratlon
to a Nipponese Who Could Grasp
Long years a-o a Japanese walked
through his pretty garden to his home;
his hands were clasped behind his
back and he was thinking as he cross
ed the bridge to pluck a fresh wiste
ria blossom that hung Just over hla
bead. This little gentleman had a
great many parcels to send out from
his shop every week, and he had al
ways wrapped them In silk; but this
was expensive material and he need
ed something cheaper for his purpose.
All at once a wasp came flitting to
ward him, but he thrust It away that
It might not nip his nose, and lo!
there at his hand wa3 a wasp's nest!
It was made of thin wood pulp, soft
ened Into a thin paste by the Jaws of
the insect, then formed and left
"Why can't I do that same thing?"
thought the Japanese merchant "Get
certain wood, form It Into a pulp by
means of water from the river and
make something like this wasp's nest
In consistency to wrap about my pack
ages." So this was the way paper was
first discovered: A wasp flew across
the path of a man who walked one day
in a vine-clad garden of old Japan.
