THE RED AND
THE WHITE ROSE
A STORY FOR NEW YEAR'S EVE.
By F. A. MITCHEL.
[Copyright, 1912, by American Press Asso
BEATRICE MARTINDALE was
tired out with the holiday
gayeties, and to cap the cli
max now came an invitation
to attend a New Year's eve party. It
was not a small affair to see the old
year out, but a ball. True, at midnight
each guest was to stand, glass in hand,
and drink to the new year. but there
was to be dancing in both years and
no breaking up beWore dawn.
The New Year's party was to be an
especially eventful one to Miss Martin
dale in this-she had agreed on New
Year's eve to glve Simon Munger an
answer to a proposal of marriage he
had made her. He had been promised
that he might call upon her for the
purpose of receiving it, but when in
vitations for both came for the 1 ii
she told him that she would give it to
him on that occasion.
Miss Martindale felt that she should
accept Mr. Munger because he was
rich. Nevertheless she didn't wish to
accept him, beca-ase that scapegrace,
Tom Oakley. had stolen her heart.
"I fear." said Mr. Munger, "that I
may not have an opportunity to get
your reply at the ball."
"You'll need none," she said. "A
ball is not the place in which to talk
"I OOULDNT GIVa YOU UP," sR 5A&D.
about such matters. I'll indicate my
reply by a sign."
"Well, let me see. If it is 'Yes' I'll
wear a red rose In my hair; If 'No,' a
How Tom Oakley got hold of this
agreement no one ever knew. His ils
ter was the Intimate friend of the
bosom friend of Miss Martindale, and
some say that the intelligence came to
him through this chain of girls. But
It doesn't matter how he got it. The
important fact is that he knew all
about it, and be knew as well that If
the lady's answer was "Yes" It would
not be because she loved Mr. Munger,
but because he, Tom Oakley. was not
exactly an eligible parti. Further
more, he realized that a crisis in his
life was at hand which might make or
mar him. If Munger's reply was "No"
there was still hope for him. It It
was "Yes" he felt sure the lady would
not go back on her word.
Now, though Tom wasn't Invited to
the ball, he felt that he must be these..
So on New Year's eve he put on a
dress suit that was getting threadbare,
together with all the assurance he
could call up, and shortly before mid
night, when the affair was in full swiug
and the presence of an uninvited guest
was not likely to be noticed, he walked
In among the dancers, casting his eyes
about him for the girl he loved.
Not seeing her, he strolled through
the rooms, hoping to find her. He saw
Mnnger among the revelers and knew
that he and Beatrice were not togeth
er. Entering a little room which was
apparently vacant, he saw a foot is
cased in a kid slipper peeping from
behind a curtain. Cautiously approach
ing. he espied the girl be sought sitUhg
on a window seat asleep. There was
a troubled expression on her face. In
her hand she held a red and a white
rose. Tired out with the holiday fee
tivities, she bad sought a secluded apot
wherein to make up her mind, and na
ture hod given her slumber.
Persons approaching caused Mr. 04k.
ley to move on. and his miad move&
on too. It was but some twenty ..
utes to 12 o'elock. and be knew that
just before 12 the guests would be -
sembled in the mupper room. the se&.1
'c fights would, be turned of for tbe
last qxty seeveds of the old yes al

Now, duaing the prevtou ten or a
dosen minutes Tom had procured some
thing that he carried up his coat eleev.
It was not the ace of hearts. but It was
nevertheless a trump. Sidling around
by the wall, he managed just before
the lights were turned out to obtain a
position directly behind Miss Martin
dale, she being unaware of his pres
ence there. When darkness came he
felt for her back bair and by the sense
of touch knew that she was putting a
rose there. lie waited till she had time
to fix it in the coil, then took it out
and pulling a rose (row his sleeve put

Suddenly a burst of light showed
Mr. Munger, who was awaiting the
announcement of his fate on the other
side of the room, a white rose in Miss
Martindale's hair. He immediately
left the premises and returned to his
home. Tom Oakley looked down at
what he held in his hand and saw a
"Beatrice:" he said.
Miss Martindale turned rind saw hint

feeling a rose there, slipped the hand
through his arm, and he led her to thi

She pulled the flower from her hair
and looked at it.
"Shall I go."
She stood Irresolute. Gradually her
head sank on his breast,. he put an
arm about her waist. and the red rose
dropped on the floor.
