Young women will be scarce in the.

things will be quite different. The
two Hay girls are married. Miss Root
is in Kurope, as is also Miss Knox,
and the Misses Hitchcock are in

Five justices of the state supreme

Cupid's Summer School.

Tommy Darling it was Thomas

was iu love. Now, In a way, this
was nothing unusual, for Thomas was
bo frequently, so variously and so ob
viously in love that no one at the Sea
Ylew House took him at all serlouslv.
In other words, Thomas was a whole
sale riirt who conducted bis campaigns
so openly that had. he sat in solitude
for an hour the entire summer con
tingent upon the Island would have
remarked upon the strangeness of the
proceeding; not that such an event
was probable when there were twenty
seven attractive and tractable young
women at hand that is, all were tract
able except one. Tommy frankly ad
mitted that he had been rejected by
twenty-six out of the twenty-seveu, but
when urged to go ahead and make his
volume of rejections complete he
turned strangely reticent.
Xo one would have believed the
truth that the twenty-seventh was the
real object of his adoration and that.
despite his vast experience in this in
stance, he became oddly incapable of
uttering the words that would p;;t his
fate to test. With twenty-six of the
"Sea Viewers," as he dubled them, he
was brave to the ioInt of audacity.
and not one of the girls felt her. heart
touched by the turn of so much as a
feather's weight; but with Janet Mars-
den! Ah, that was different! She
might not take him seriously either.
Tommy really loved this quiet, self
contained girl, and his tongue stfttu
mered and grew slow when ho tried to
tell in all serlousuess what he had
ofttimes spoken in jest. In spite of
his mercurial temperament Darling
was not a flirt in the common accepta
tion of the word. Beneath his gayety
was hidden a strong, manly nature
that seldom manifested itself. Perhaps
all unconsciously he had shown this
better side to Janet, for he felt in
stinctively that flippancy In her pres
ence was a desecration of the love he
nurtured far below the surface.
The weeks sped by. Pretty girls
came and pretty girls went. Moonlight
sails and rides gave way to hops and
amateur theatricals on dark nights.
There were crabbing on the lake, clam
bakes beyond the Point and picnics in
the woods across the inlet, and of all
these Tommy was the life, the bright
and guiding star. But tomorrow it
would all end. Janet was going home.
Tommy gazed moodily toward the
point of rock around which she had
disappeared. Seven wasted weeks! He
was an idiot, a
Tommy kicked over a camp chair
that stood in his way and strode down
the steps toward the beach. He found
Janet with her new magazines perched
In a shady, sandy corner.
"Your mother tells me you leave for
the mountains tomorrow. I'm tremen
dously sorry you are going."
Tommy was digging holes with the
point of her parasol.
Ills voice was genuinely tender and
earnest. The smile died on her lips,
and her eyes softened; but, after all,
his record was against him.
"Are you clever at figures)" she in
quired. She had the parasol now, and Tom
my followed what she wrote in the
Like a flash he reached for what had
now become Cupid's weaion. Under

"The others don't count, you know,"
he added, looking out at the dancing
"Very clever of you! What a time
you must have thinking up all these
pretty speeches. When do you have
time to' sleep?"' Her raillery brought
a flush to his cheek sfand he clasped
nis nana, rcsyniujeiyj hdoui nis Knees.
"To be n'onest, I haien't slept much
lately. I've' had something on my
mind. 1'ye been trying to find a way
to tell a girl that I love her, but I
can't make it. She's not a 'summer
girl,' you see, but the sort of girl one
would want winter . and summer for
all time." IBs flippancy had quite dis
appeared now, and Janet suddenly
shielded her face with her Land,
though the sun had not yet crept
round the rocky barrier behind them.
"You see, no one believes I've a heart,
for I've let the girls play football with

His hazel eyes, from which all play
ful teasing light had fled, were fixed
on a distant dipping sail, and he did
not see the expression on Janet's face.
There was a moment's silence; then
she drew a quick, sharp breath.
"You might" her voice was very
low"you might tell her that you love

would believe you."

up her books and handed them to the
"You're a very docile pupil, dear, but
the first lesson is over."
Tommy smilingly accepted the bur
den she offered him, but still held fast
her outstretched hands.
