William Hervey Woods, in Youth's Com
\NE was a young person of great
sensibility and imaginative power,
lier enemies said she was sentimental,
but that was only half true. Jane, hav
ing read countless romances in which
love appeared to be the highest state
of bliss, decided that if life were to
contain anything important for her she
must fall in love as soon as possible.
This may seem an easy matter to the
simply amorous, but to a strict roman
ticist it presents many difficulties.
Jane's life led down a city street to
school and home again. I is true that
many young ladies* in Madam Esrtelle'b
seminary flirted from the windows
with young gentlemen on the .corner,
but this innoce nt vulgarity was of
fensive to Jane's sense of romance.
She continued reading and bided an
auspicious occasion for the bestow al
of her heart.
I her fifteenth ear Jane's parents
went to spend the summer in the
AdT*ondaeks. Jane decided that this
summer should certainly mark the
great ye ar of her life. Some one must
at once be found upon whom to hang
her affections. Had not Juliet lived,
loved and died before she was sixteen?
Jane made a calculating survey of her
self before she launched upon her
quest. Her blue es, black hair and
pensive, drooping mouth were encour
aging, but there was something of
fensively prosaic about her short, blue
linen dress and large laced boots. A
limp white muslin and a pair of sandal
slippers are what Jane would have
For many days Jane viewed the male
population of the lakes with a search
ing eye. She looked at the venerable
beaux with patent leather shoes and
cynic smiles, he college men with
blatant tongues and sweaters, the
stodgy heads of families, the choicely
dressed and vacuous looking youths
from city offices, the agile derisive lit
tle boys who moved in gangs. He
heart misgave her. Was it possible
that ladies still found heroes in this
throng? Still she did not despair.
The re might yet beat some soul of sen
timent under a flannel blazer.
1 One night as she was standing on
I the wharf the little boat that brought
new visitors to the hotel presented to
her eyes a likely subject. He was lean
ing against the door of the steamer in
a rather graceful way, with a soft hat
almost imperceptibly tilted on his
head. There was, to Jane's eye, some
thing both subtle and dashing about
his appearance. Her hopes beat high.

quite colorless in mind and heart.
Could not Jane tincture him to suit

a hero? She would try. Robert soon
got into the habit of seeking Jane to
dance because she did all the talking.
Then he began to take her rowing in
the afternoons. Jane's heart began to
warm to "Robert. It wasbetter to have
a man say nothing than to let him spoil
thin gs with commonplace remarks.
She made him row her to shady nooks,
where she would take a little volume of
Lord Tennyson and read it to him. Sh
would gaze at him silently and mysteri
ously. Robert began to be listless and
pale. The silence and poetry and ad
oration of Jane were enervating him.

sense of disappointment. Itwasheavy
work-this draggi ng of Robert through

At last her home-made hero was
obliged to leave. Jane brightened up.
Here was an opportunity for a touch

Robert rowed to a beautiful little is

made attempts to go to the Lost Para
dise and mourn in pensive solitude,
but this red-haired oy was always
getting up a par ty to fish or dig for
worms, and dragged her with them.
The red-haired boy was ugly, head
stro ng and had no ear for Tennyson,
but he had a smile like those for which
comedians on the stage have been
known to receive large salaries.
One day the hotel guests hired the
little steamer and toured the lakes 01

Jane on the back deck and made puns.
At luncheon he beat a oy over the
head with a chicken bone because he
didn't pass the cakes to Jane. When
it began to rain, as it always does at
picnics, he seized Jane by the hand
and made her run along the road un
til she begged for mercy. Reaching
the steamer, he pushed her into his
oveicoat, wrapped her feet in a potato
sack and composed himself beside her
to play the banjo all the way home.
It wasn't at all romantic, but very
pleasant in its way. Jane wished she
had not wasted so much time looking
for a heroic hero.
"How long do you stay here?" she
"Till to-morrow," he answered.
"Only to-morrow!" she cried.
The red-haired oy stopped singing
and smiled at her. He wasn't such a
very ugly boy. "Sure on the 5:30

In the early morning following Jane
was waked by a toot from the steam

towel and flapped it from the window.
As the boat rounded the corner she
could see the sunlight shining on the
red-haired boy. waved his straw
