(cawwNrit, 1917. Wetera Ntwo : U~nst.)
"Sh-h I" ordered Miss Dorothy Woe
den, and waved a scarf toward the big *
wire cage hung from the top of the t
She flushed and was generally em
barrassed, for some one was passing i
the house, and Miss Worden was a sea
sitive soul and experienced a certain g
sense of guiltiness. But to the passer- a
by the sudden outburst of Miss Wo
den's well-known parrot conveyed no o
secret. A name, and a common one, s
had no particular significance to unen- p
lightened ears. p
There had been an hour of quite
rare romance in the lonely life of Miss n
Worden, but she had hidden its details ,
and even its memories from all out- tl
siders. She was thirty and designated f,
as an old maid. I
Fate had been kind to her. A broth- t
er, fortunate in his business affairs g
and generous in his gifts to his only g
sister, had provided her with a cosy a
home and a settled Income. She was t
naturally sweet tempered, she had not 11
allowed her sympathies to grow old r
and she was the favorite and confidant a
of all the younger set of the town.
Lovers had passed her by. For six a
years after girlhood the care of her In- j
valid mother had taken all her time
and interest. By that time she was
twenty-eighbt, and with a sigh she had
accepted the inevitable.
"I am quite on the shelf," she told j
one of her near and dear friends. "And
that Is not a very sad fate, for I ave
pever had time to think of love and
esh any romance memories."
But sentiment came to Miss Warden
with a visit for two weeks at a summe r
resrt. The doctor had advised ber
that she naed and deserved a change
mnd a rest after the death et her moth
er. It was one day while strolig down

David Blair sat behind the screen of
palms, a frownlang spectator upon a
scene of gayety. Always his place mu
seemed to be just at the outer edge of
things, never as a partleipnt. Years il
ago-for youth seemed a confused t
memory to David, he had not danced the
or flirted, or even engaged in harmless ca
revelry with his college companions. i
Seriously, he had wondered at their tel
simple enjoyment as he applied him
self to study. The admiring glances vS
of girls he had been too absorbed to m'
see, alike their perplexity and disap- Ni
pointment at his indifference, had br
proved unnoticed. t
Now, David, successful man of busi- 5s
ness, authority upon matters of mo- It
ment, realised suddenly and gloomily,
that pleasure had repaid him with the qt
forgetfulness he had given. Not that] P;
it mattered-much. Janet still came a
to him with her merry or tearful con- RI
fidences, Janey, with an utter disre- N
gard for decorum, stopped at his bach- W
elor home on dismal, dreary evenings ra
to make his tea for him, to sit there
in a bright red frock with her little a
red slippers before the fre, talking
as only Janey could talk. N
After her return from that last year
at college there had been a self-con- 11
fident poise in the girl's bearing which a1
had not been there before. David was ti
impatiently disapproving of each suitor ai
who appeared upon the scene. No di
man seemed quite good enough for o0
SJaney, and these conceited young Idi
Sots-David fumed at their assurance. 1
I The choice had now sifted down to i1
I two. Frankly Janey discussed her
cavaliers before David's study ire. tl
" 'They both want to marry me," she vi
remarked one evening. 1
r Janey - married! The thought a
1 canght in a painful manner at David's tl
1 "Wait," be advised hastily, "do not

Nellie Morse had seen the young
man only twice, but she was pleased
when he lifted his hat, and she smil
ingly replied to his courtesy. The first
time was when, crossing the street,
the handle of the little basket she was
carrying parted and some supplies
from the delicatessen store were scat
tered far and wide.
The young man had gathered up the
various articles, both had laughed
merrily over the mishap, betraying
Nellie's fondness for Swiss cheese, rye
bread and pickles. Now they met
again, and both were glad to pass the
salutation of something more than

quaintance with our neighbor, Mr.

a pleasant voice-that of Mrs.

Nellie and numerous other young

raphers and clerks had their abode.
"Oh, is that his name?' said Nellie,
a trifle flushed.
i "Yes, he rooms across the court, di
rectly opposite your apartment.'
r Nellie got her own supper on her
r little gas stove that evening. Then
b she went into her bedroom adjoining
s the little closet that did for a kitchen,
r and did not tarn on the light. She sat
o down by the window, half-frosted
r over, and looked across the court.
t "How strange, how near and almost
romantic!" soliloquised Nellie, smil
o ing at the folly of a passing fancy.
r "That must be Mr. Dexter's room, but
the frost on the window obscures all
e view. Yes, that must be the brave
rescuer of my delicatessen dainties,"

' the windowpane. "Why, he is draw
