The Popularity of the Equitable Life Assurance Society,

There wa3 more in this than the mere
words, but jt escaped Dora. Ada, howev.

was always talking about it or tho absence
of it. It was a pleasure to her to infer that
Mr. Vane felt in sympathy with them with

took a fresh departure in his profession
during those days, paintincr. more diligent
ly than lie had doco for years. In truth,
that was an eventful epoch in his art life.
The pictures lie painted then laid the foun
datiou for his future success.
Ada's secret ideal had always been a
man whose life should be dedicated to the
interpretation of beauty, to whom a sunset
should be of indefinitely greater impor
tance than a logarithm or a title-deed. The
men of l'ort Royal all gravitated either to
ward the law, like John, or toward science
and letters, like her father and Professor
Luce. Ada made no secret of her pleasure
in her new acquaintance. Dora liked him
too. John, to be sure, insisted that he was
a bit effeminate. But he was a lithe, ac
tive, strongly built young fellow, with a
manly air, in spite of Ins faultless features
and golden hair aud mustache. This blonde
delicacy contrasted peculiarly with a skin
so dark that it might be called olive, and
splendid large dark eyes. Moreover, his
tailor had done as much for him as Profes
sor Luce's had failed to do tor that gentle
man. So a month went by. Philip and
Ada went rowing almost every afternoon in
her little boat, exploring sunsets and
woods, and bringing home stacks of laurel.
The woods were bowers of laurel then.
"I should like to transfer some of this
loveliness to canvass," Philip said break
ing off a bough that hung down into the
water; "but I despair. It is maddening
that one has nothing more ethereal than
mud to work with."
"Mud? Oh, you mean your paints."
He laughed. "I mean my paints. How liter
al you are!" Then, as her face changed:
"I like it; I applaud it. You never let me
wander long off the track ; you are my
friendly Ariadne, as I told you the first
time I saw you. What is it? You smiled
in that same odd way then."
"I was only thinking No, I won't tell

always been ashamed ot, childishly, since I

"Very well, you may,"
Occasionally alter that he did so. And
the name hitherto detested, became music
to tier eyes.
"I wih you would paint this laurel," she
said, "this particular bough. Call it a sun
set study. It looks as though it had been
dipped in a rose-closed sunset."
'I should have to engage in a sharp tus

She sat in the the stern of the boat hold
ing the laurel. "I wish you would," she
said, seriously. She was making his doinir

a woman s interest. "I ll do my best," he
said, "since you ask it." In reply to which
she looked up to him with sinning, happy
eyes, itieeartli was transfigured tor her.
I hat was no longer Port Royal in tho dis
tiince; this no longer the placid stream she
had known all her life; it was a land of
romnuce; the same land. let us saw In
which the fabled Cretan maiden strayed

It suited Ada to compare Philip just
here to this latter personage; although

But the next morning Philip met a friend,
who beguiled him into taking a stroll
nbout town, Tho clock struck noon, and
ho remembered his engagement und hur
ried to the college. lie found Ada's bright
face clouded for tho first time. "I beg ten
thousand pardons," ho began, his counte
nance kindling with eagerness, in tho way
Ada found so irrisistablo. "Have you thrown
awav tho thread, Ariadne?"
"Her brow cleared. "No. Ot course It
was business letters, It always is with
men. Those horrid business letters!"
"You know all a! out them, don't you?"
he rejoiued, neither affirming nor denying.
NEW SERIES-NO. 85.
Then ho niado a few marks with his pencil.
1 hen Dora came in and said ;
"The students are to havo a band here on
the campus to-night, and tho town are in
vited to stroll about in tho moonlight. Ada
I want you and Mr. Vane to dine with John
and me, and then we can all como back to
gether." Agreed. On their way back to Violet
Bank a stylish woman, unknown to our sis
ters, walking, however, with a Port Royal
acquaintance Mrs. Smith stopped with
an exclamation of surprise, and put out her
hand to Philip. Mrs. Smith then presented
Mrs. Forsyth, her guest, adding: "Mrs.
Forsyth wants to come up and see President
Field about her brother, who is in college.
Shall we find him ito morrow morning?"
Ada said yes, she thought so; and they
"Mrs. Forsyth's stunning, Isn't she?" in
quired Philip. At which Ada was stupidly
Somehow there was a lack in tho moon
light concert on the campus, aud Ada went
home less gay than she had been of late.
But Philip had promised to come tho next
morning, and when tho time camo she
proceeded to make herself lovely for him.
One of tho students had brought her some
fresh laurel, and she pinned bright bits of
it in her hair and at her throat, tihe should
always associate laurel now' with the
one person. Then she seated herself in a
deep window-seat. Steps came up tho
walk; stopped at the door; the bell rang.
Talk and laughter came into her through
the open window. That was surely Mrs.
Smith ; yes, aud that horrid Mrs. Forsyth
was with her, saying, "Mr. Vnne"--ahf
so Philip was there too, they had met on
tho way, no doubt "did you go to the
promenade concert last night?"
And Philip replied, carelessly, in his
delicious ityte-liko voice, "Yes, worse luck.
It was a stupid affair."
A mere passing speech; but Ada sprang
to her feet, and confronted her flaming
face and angry eyes in the mirror close
at hand. She pulled out the
laurel blossoms sho had adorned
herself with, aud stamped on them. She
hated them; she hated herself. A stupid
affair! And they had been together; and
when they parted ho had kissed the rose
sho gave him. Tho next moment her three
guests were announced, and she cooled
down as we all must on occasions. The
morning went by aimlessly. Phillip lin
gored a little behind Mrs. Forsyth, as she
was leaviug, to say, "I notice that our
laurel is beginning to be blown about tho
edges. Hardly worth while to attempt it,
is it?" And Ada answered, "No, it is
only worth throwing away." Then Phillip
followed in the wake of his stunning friend,
careless, charming, idle. His fit of work
was over for the present. Ada, for her
part, tossed away the laurel bough, with
icy fingers, and a silly head and a stupid
heart that ached in unison.
And actually that was the end of a tool-
ish dream that only lasted four weeks, af
ter all. A morning or so later Philip called
af. Violet bank to say good-by. Ada was
a:ain staying with her sister for a few days.
Mrs. Ray was indisposed a bad headache
so she could not sec him. She sent him
down, however, a cordial little pencilled
note of farewell, begging him to wait a
few moments for her sister's return. Ada
had gone out for a little while. Philip was
sincerely sorry not to see Mrs. Ray. It
seemed to him nw that he had always
preferred her to her sister; she was less
positive. He looked at his watch. Yes,
he would wait a while. He picked up a
book, but had not turned over a ouire bo-
fore Ada entered. I am inclined to" think
that it was Ada's fault, upon the whole.
that the meeting was cold and constrained.
But on parting Philip smiled a golden smilu
and said, "I am delighted to have seen von.
They told me you were out, but I wouldn't
be turned off. I insisted upon waiting till
you came in." To do him justice, this was
the way the case presented 'itself to him at
"Ah, darling," Dora annotated to this.
flee minutes later, "I am glad you were in
time to sec Mr. Vane. I sent him word to
be sure to wait for you."
Our Ariadne seated herself by an oncn
window and looked out at the shifting wa
ter without replying. That shifting water
was to her still like life as inconstant.
A parting equivocation ! A very trifle, vet
still "tho little flaw within the lute." Then
she looked up at tho clear blue sky with
gathering tears. "I am glad there are
somo things that do not deceive, she
After this episode Ada was gentler, more
tolerant even of Professor Luce's clothes.
However he marked an era in his lito iust
here by purchasing anew suit. Ho also
put himself into the hands ot a barber:
perhaps some one suggested to Inm that his
hair was too long; not Ada, however, I
am positive. The result was marvelous.
It is incredible what an effect the outward
man has upon the interpretation of the in
ward man. But I am convinced that it
was for somo cause still deeper than this
that when Ada and he next met sho felt
that they had both undergone a transform
ing power. Trofessor Luce, for his part,
mentally and with contrition revoked thoso
harsh remarks I quoted abovo about pur
gatorial fires. Ada was once more tho girl
with whom he fell in lovo at first sight in
the good old-fashioned way.
I'eoplo thought it was a strange match.
Ho might bo brilliant, but ho was undeni
ably uncouth. However, Ada told Dora:
"lie moy not have tho outward making of
an ideal lover; bnt no one else has such a
true, truo heart."
Moreover, he cave her abundant cause to
be proud of him iu other ways. Iu fact,
there is no felling what reflected honors
may uot bo in store for her through him.
Somo new planet may yet bo called by her
