DAILY SHORT STORY
The Loan of a Nickel.
The trolley tar conductor was com
ing, clanking his puncher as he came.
I took a nickel out of my vest pocket; a
lady who sat next to me opened a hand
satchel, but. not finding what she ex
pected, was evidently much distressed.
Nearer came the puncher and more dis
turbed apieared the lady.
"Fare." said the conductor.
"I handed h!m lo cenis. Supposiug
that I was paying for the lady beside
me, he punched twice and passed on.
"Will you kindly give me your ad
dress V" asked the lady. T wish to re
turn your loan."
"What loanV" I asked.
You paid my fare."
"Itather say the conductor made a
"Your address, please."
I took out my card with my address
engraved upon it and handed it to her.
The next day a messenger brought
me a u envelope containing a nickel.
A couple of weeks later 1 received by
mall a ticket marked "Complimentary"
to an amateur entertainment given for
charity. I was puzzled, uch tickets
are not usually complimentary. He
sides. I was abundantly able to pay.
Curious to learn more of the matter. I
altrndiil the show, which was given in
a small theater. My seat was one of
the best in the house, right in among
the creuie de la creiue. Ilrside me sat
a lady, who looked at me as if she
wondered hoxv I, not in the swim I
was a newcomer to the city could
have got into that part of the house. I
looked over the audience with a lor
gnette, but saw no one I had ever seen
before. When the performance was
over 1 left the theater no wiser than
when I entered it.
On reaching my rooms I put my
gloves in my overcoat po Let and felt
a small parcel. I'livvrappinir if. I open
ed a little pasteboard box and took out
a scarf pin of a unique design. There
was nothinu to identify Jt. and I con
cluded it must have been placed there
by mistake when uiy coat was hanging,
in some public place. After that I
thought nothing of either mystery,
though I longed for one glimpse of the
woman I had loaned a nickel.
Two years later I was traveling In
a railway carnage in hnglanti. and.
though it was early in the afternoon.
I fell sisleep. When I awoke I noticed
that there had b-eu a chance in the
occupancy oi tlie compartment. He-
fore me sat a lady, and the moment I
looked at her I saw that she was the
woman whosr street car fan- 1 hail
paid. Hrr eyes were bent tin a book,
and she gave no sign of bring aware
of the presence of tine she hail met be
fore. Since she was not looking at me,
I had plenty of opportunity to look at
Now. I defy any one to be looked at
by one in whom he or she is interested
and not betray consciousness of the
fact. It see met 1 to me that the lady
was reading very rapidly. I waited
lo see how she would act when her
glance fell upon me. She did not seem
inclined to put down the book and
when she did so took pains to avoid
seeing me. My diagnosis of her ac
tions was that she had recognized me,
but did not wish to give me a chance
to open an acquaintance. Then the
guard put his head in and said:
Here was a pretty chance for re
venge. I fumbled in my pocket for a
ticket which I purposely failed to find,
watching the lady's expression as I tlid
so. She showed no especial interest in
my discomfiture, but turned and whis
pered something to an elderly man, her
father, beside her.
"What? I 'm! Can I be of auy as
sistance to you. sir?"
I am sorry to trouble you. but my
funds are all in letlers of credit and"
"Permit me. sir." And. taking out
his (HjckettHMtk. he asked. "To what
T am traveling for pleasure, and it
dorsift matter. I shall stop where you
stop, draw money, and then I will not
inconvenience myself by having to
send you the amount of your loan."
As you w ish. sir." Then to the con
ductor. "Ticket to Kdiuburgh. please."
mil my fare was paid.
I proposed to keep in touch with the
travelers till 1 could learn more about
the lady, who gave no evidence what
ever or seeing anything in the incident
to point to a former incident. I ex-
hanged cards wilh ln-r father with
On the evening of my arrival at Ktl-
inburgh I called on my benrfactor to
return my loan. He bad gone tint, but
his tla lighter responded to my card.
As shr ciiterfd the room I saw her
asf a quirk glanre at the pin I wore in
my scarf, then look away in evident
fear that 1 had noticed her interest in
it. I he pin was the un" I had found
in my own coat ocket after the chari
ty entertainment at the thrater. A
suiJilen revelation nahei ttiroiiini my
brain. It had been put in my nv-reoat
HM-ket by the lady who sat next to me
in the theater, who was her confederate.
"I am fortunate." I said, "in the op
portunity to thank you for a delightful
evening several years ago at a theater
and for the lieautifnl souvenir vnr,
pav- m of the occa'sion."
Tin-re was a flush of srarlet; th-n. re
covering herself. She siiHl:

anil especially fur the delicate manner
in which you made it."
Nevertheless I was not so modest as
to consider the favors she had shown
me a mere return of the loan of a nick
