' I ila caught sight of a blossom that

To reach It from tho yard was Impossl

"Ah I" Inughcd the young man.

B Tne young man raised himself on

I the bunch of lilacs that lay besldo tho
I parasol on tho sldowalk, then his
B glance went back to tho flushed face of
B the girl who stood surrounded by the
fl rustling leaves of tho bush.

ain't no call to overdid theysoffs," de
clared Aunt Tillle, ns sho hastily car
ried a pall of cold water to bathe the
face of "Jlnrs Harry."
A young civil engineer, with all the
enthusiasm ond ambltldn of youth, ho
had entered his profession, only to And
that a plungo from collego Into tho
woods nnd swamps wns a chango too
great for even his strong constitution
to stand. To recuperate from tho fever
which followed ho went to his aunt's,
whero ho knew a hearty welcome and
the quiet of n secluded vlllago awaited
him. Now, as he lay In tho white,
clean room and looked with conscious
oyes, for the first tlmo In many days,
Into tho dimpled face of tho little,
nurse, whoso gentle fingers soothed
his still throbbing head, ho was glad
ho came; glad ho had fever; glad of
anything that kept her near him.
"I am so thankful you arc hotter,"
Eleanor said; "hero comes Auntie with
your bioth. Tho doctor says you aro
out of dungcr now."
Tho lilacs had withered and gono
nnd tho early roses wero scattering
their leaves In tinted flakes over tho
gruss, beforo ho was strong enough to
walk about tho grounds nnd sit beneath
the arbor and llstqn to tho music of
Eleanor's voice, as she read to him.
Then he wns suddenly recalled to his
home, back to his Interrupted work.
Eleanor was away when he left
Whon Mrs. Graham laid In her hand
his note of farewell, a feeling of unut
tbrablo loneliness crept Into her soul.
Sho let Mrs. Graham turn her pale
faco up to her own and gazo deep Into
her oyes. Without a word Eleanor
kissed her, and turning, walked down
the path between tho lilac bushes nnd
down tho quiet street.
Tho summer slipped Into autumn;
then the cold breath of winter held In
check tho Impulsive spring.
A new sweetness, a womanly loveli
ness, added a new charm to Eleanor.
That farewell note she kept; no oyes
but hers ever beheld tho missive. All
his letters sho kept; letters telling o(
his perfect health, his ambitions, of
his memory of a beautiful summer
gono by, of his gratltudo to her, and
his lovo for his aunt.
Eleanor reproached herself for tho
aching oN his lettcrB left In her
heart Was he not kind to romembor
her, to bo grateful for tho little sho
had dona to help him master his Ill
ness? As she approached tho cottage one
morning her thoughts wero far nway
It was Just one year ago that sho came
that glorious morning to gather a
bunch of lilacs. She was living orei
again tho anxious hours of his Illness,
the happy hours of his recovery, when
like a wave fraught with recollections
a delicious frngranco swept over hor
Lilacs! Yes, they wero ngaln In bloom,
tho white ones nodding to the purple
ones In tho slow moving breeze.
Elcnnor took a bloom from the low
est branch and pressed It against het
cheok as sho thoughtfully walked up
tho well-known path betweon the over

sun, Btood In her path.

"Why did you wait?" sho hesi

Ho stood close, to her, Sho dropped
her eyes to hldo tho tell-tale light ol
love. Taking her hand, that held the
spray of Illnc, ho clasped it In bis
"Tho year has pabsed. To-day my

DO YOU FEAR GROWINQ OLD?

The futuro Is not half so creepy to
Uio girl "standing with unwilling feet

It Is to that samo girl when sho

ago staring her In tho face.
Every woman hates to grow old, and
tho moro vital has been her life, tho
moro filled with Joy ond popularity,
tho greater that hatred.
It Is not pleasant to picture oneself
friendless, lonoly and not wanted
around; to feel ono'a hair and eyes
and teeth get tho worse for wenr, nnd
know that however tight your grip,
youth refuses to bo held.

HARD PILLOWS ON DIVAN.
Should Be Arranged So as to Support
the 8ofter Ones.
Every ono does not know that n
wldo divan Is mndo moro comfortable
by having at Its bnck two hugo, hard
pillows that will support tho softer
It Is UBual to heap up a great variety
of theso extra sort onus on a largo
divan so that nnyouo fitting or reclin
ing may arrange them according to
These aro needed, It Is true, but
they also need a support. Tho wall Is
usually too far back from tho front
edgo of tho dlvan to Borva. Tho two
largo pillows mndo of tho material
which covers tho dlvan nro not only
comfortable, but artistic.
Thoy may bo stuffed with oxcclplnr
Into coarso muslin or ticking, then
covered with tho chosen fabric. Thoy
look hotter with n heavy cord around
If the end of tho dlvnn Is against tho
wall ns well as Its side, a third pillow
may bo added to give an added frame
