Two old friends met in the sanc

and cordially shook hands.

They both shook hands again, and
strolled into the copy room.
One was "Laughter."
The other "Applause."

"Am I all the world to you, Jack
dear?" she cooed.
"You are certainly a fair portion
of it," he told her, and so made the
classy double play of - pleasing her
and keeping to the exact truth.
"Madam, do yqu think you can

CONCERNING A MERRY
'Hello, Jinx! Wait a minutdl"
A jovial voice hailed Ilarland as
he was leaving the office building,
and ho turned, to scciSnin Iiplburft,
a friondly bookkeeper in 'a no'ghbbr
ing establishment. "Going homo?"
Sam inquired, and Ilarland nodded
without replying, his face hardening
a little. His cheerful comrade glanced
at him curiously, as they fell into

"you look sort of down on your
luck". "Anything tho matter? Bet I
know, though, come to' think. Tho
missus is still away ou that visit to
her mother, isn't she, and little
James is lonesome? Been ''gone
about a month, ch? And mother
lives 'way up state, doesn't she?
Well, I don't blame you."
Again Ilarland nodded. "Mrs. liar
land's mother," he "began, a little
stiffly, "is in rather poor health,
and " Sam interrupted with a
"Ybu needn't tell me' how the dear
old ladies hold on to their daughters
when they get a chance. Hubby just
has to wait. My wife's away, too, on
a similar errand of mercy; but, luck
ily, it's only for the week-end. Now,
according to the funny papers, you
and I ought to be improving each
sliirfing hour; you especially. Gives
me the creeps to think of you piking
away out there in tho suburbs, ten
miles or so, and staying in your lone
some house with only that super
annuated cook to make home happy.
Ifs uncanny. Say, let's go on a
mild tear together. We'll take sup
per together and go to tho theater,
and I'll put you up for the night, at
ray little flat, and glad enough of
your company. You can phone the
faithful Topsv, or whatever her
"Becky. Yes, I suppose I might,"
mused Harland, his lonely heart
warming a little to tho plan. "At
least, I'll tell her not to expect me
until late. I'm not so sure of leav
ing the poor old 60ul alone overnight.
It is sort of lonesome out in Reardon
"Ghastly, I call it 1 Don't see how
you ever came to settle .out there.
But perhaps Mrs. Harland is fond
af the country?"
"No, not especially." Harland
flushed uncomfortably, remembering
how his own enthusiasm had1 at first
blinded him to Lillian's distaste, and
led him to overrule her many objec
tions. Yet he had not meant "
"Economy, then, I suppose," pur
sued Sam; "though when the coal
bills come in you have your doubts,
to say nothing of the railroad fares.
Besides, with the raise you got this
week, you can afford to spread a
little. Better , move into town; old
man I Well, where shall wo eat?"
After a satisfying meal they
bought tickets for one of the good
aid comic operas, which was Being
revived with great success. "Some
how," explained Sam, half apolo
getically, "I don't take so much to
that tobasco kind when I can get
this. I was raised sort of decent,
and heard good music; and I guess
I'm hopelessly tainted with old-fashioned
"Same here," confessed Harland,
as they took their seats.
"Didn't you tell mo onco that Mrs.
Harland was musical prize pupjl at
the conservatory and all that?'"
"Yes." Ilarland spoke laconical
ly, glad that the curtain rose just
then, to help him hide the pain which
tho chance allusion to Lillian gave
him. What would Sam think if he
knew the truth ; that after a stormy
quarrel his wife had left him, vowing
that if there was any way for her to
live she would never return? Tho
pretense of a visit could not be kept,
up mdclinitoly, and soon his world
must know, since ho had begun to
give up hope, now had it all begun,
the estrangement that had lea to
such a climax ?
She was younger than he, and she
loved excitement and 6parkle too
much, he had thought; but had he
not been critical and exacting, in
stead of making some compromise
which might have saved their love?
For their love had been genuine, he
was sure. Whcro was she now ? Not
with her mother, as his carefully
managed inquiries had proved. Jlo
sat in a reverie, as the gay first act
romped to a close.
"Good work 1" Sam's voice roused
him as tho curtain wont down. "But

poflMiit dances and all that sort of
thing. I do like a big mob on tho

' Harland took the glasses mechan
ically from his friend's hand, and
tho next moment found himself gaz
ing straight at .Lillian I Stag
paint, a blonde wig, and a peasant
costume could not disguise her. His
involuntary start filled Sam with
glee. "Aha I" he whispered, "wasn't
Harland controlled himself enough
to nod and smile indifferently, and
pen, the glasses still at his eyes,
feigned a deliberate examination of
the entire cast, to give himself time.
The rest of the evening was a dream,
for he saw only ono girlish figure,
one shy, appealing face.
How young slie looked, and how
artless 1 Was she happy ? It seemed .
to him that he must find out, at any
cost. She did not sec him until just :
at the last, when the finale lined up
tho chores at the front of tho Btage.
Then, as she caught sight of his set
face, she faltered, and he saw tho
girl next to her slip a half-support-j
mg arm about her, as though it were
part of. the business of the scene.
Luckily, Sam was following the rol
licking march with eyes and cars,
arid did not note his agitation, and
as they left tho theater Harland was
able to explain quite calmly that
ho had decided to go home by the
midnight train, "and niany thanks,
old chap, for a jolly lark," he added,
disappearing before his bewildered
friend could protest.
Would she never emerge from the
stage door, the man wondered, wait
ing in the shadow; had she . gono al-
ready, determined to evade him ? No,
here she was I He stepped forward,
with formal greeting, for there were
spectators; but as their eyes met a
great wave of, relief swept over him,
for surely he saw gladness in her
weary little face. .
"This way, I have a cab," he sug
gested softly, and she clutched his
arm with nervous fingers, and hur
ried with him around the corner. In
the shelter of the cab, on the way to
the station, ho tried-to comfort her,
as she put her head down on his
shoulder like a penitent child, and
whispered 'her remorse. "It was my
fault, too, dear," he assured her; "I
see it now, plainly enough. But we'll
start fresh, won't we? And if you
really love the stage so, we'll try "
She put a shaky hand over his lips.
"Don't, Jimsiel I've had my les
son: You know I used to be wild
for a career, and when I I fell in
love with you instead, I couldn't
quite get rid of a hateful little un
dercurrent of feeling that somehow
it was your fault, especially when
you took it for granted that we'd be
60 happy in a little place like Rear
don" "You needn't stay there any more;
we'll move tomorrow I" he assured
her, but again she stopped him.
"Wait, dear I Fvo tried stage life,
and I hate it 1 Oh, don't look fierce,
Jimsie; they were a good sort in that
company, and every one's been kind
and decent to me. But my voice
only just passed the test; I couldn't
act, and it was perfectly plain to me
that I could never be anything but
just a little also-ran in the chorus.
And it was hard work, and I was
homesick for my own dear, beautiful
home and, most of all, for you,

me. No, we won't move to town;
I've had enough city for a while.
