The first night Mr. Forman went to
his friend's house at 9 o'clock. True
enough, there was the old lady dosing
over hor knitting and a girl in short
dresses sitting tit a table with a globe
lamp on it studying her lessons. The
girl looked up at Forman with an ex
jjressicu on her face indicating more
interest in his coming to spend some
time with them than mere protection
warranted. Her glance told him that
ft would not be entirely safe to treat
tier absolutely an a schoolgirl. ITer
aunt woke up and welcomed the cus
todian, but the girl said never a word.
The next few evenings Forman
spent at his club. Then one morning

He certainly seemed very nice. Trne j
he was a little old for her, but a for- j

The next evening Mr. Forman came!

Forman remembered a time when
! he had considered a girl of eighteen
j j ner prime and one of twenty-two
j passe. Then he t'uought how nice 11
j woui seem to be back in those youth
( aajs. How much he had lost bj
j rnmlnp to middle ace. And here was
a girl wno was piainiy indicating tnai
phe wished to be considered a com
panionable person for him. Wouldn't
it be fine If he could go back a dozen
years and she could go forward a few
years, and he could love her and she
could love him, and he could get rid
of his wretched club life and all that?
The nest evening Forman, who had
received a letter from Fisk, made a
pretext of it to go to the house to
tell Blanche that he had heard from
her father. "Take good care of my
little girl" was the Injunction, and For
man made himself believe that It was
Incumbent upon him to afford her
some amusement, so be asked ber
aunt if he might take Blanche to the
theater. Permission was given and
tickets secured for a Friday night,
when the girl would not be obliged
to go to school the next day and could
therefore sleep late.
Blanche wore the dress with the
longest skirt In ber possession and put
ou all her finery, including a number
of gold and silver bangles. She look
ed very pretty and, more than that,
wore on her face a youthful expecta
tion that was fast fading from bet i
escort. Khe had been to a theater but
once or twice In her life, while the
drama was an old story with him.
But In his companion's enjoyment he
found a new sensation. The theater,
j the players, many of them "mouth
ing their words" and overacting, were
to her real arsons, their Joys and sor
rows real emotions, while tho hero and
heroine seemed to be enacting ber own
Forman. blaze hllnself.' sat recard-
to one who had been satiated. And
that eight Bianffce went to sleep
dreaming that Forman was the ber j !
and she the heroine in the play that !
had been enacted. As for Forman,
he sank to slumber thinking about
the pretty young thing who had sat
beside Mm at the theater,
Forman passed the next evening at 1
his club. Saturday night is gala night
at most clubs and there were plenty
of uis ccmpanious there to keep him
company. But somehow the evening i
dragged. At billiard: the face of
Blanche wps always interposing itself;
between him and the object bail. At'
bridge he lost because becouldu't keep
his mind on the game. And so it was i

thoughts. His club life seemed more j
unsatisfactory to him than ever. j
One morning Forman woke up con-;
scious of the fact that bo wn drifting ,
Info an equivocal position. His friend
had asked him to look out for hi ,
home and the two people in it during ,
his absence. What had he been doing? j
Turning the head of that friend's J
daughter, not quite seventeen year
old. In th?s Forman wan wrong. It
was not he who was turning the girl's .
head, but she who was turning his j
head. At any rate there was some
thing very delightful between them.
How would he meet his fricud when
he returned? Then suddenly he was
terrified at ihe thought that Blanche,

"I dare say you've been very kind, j
old man," said Fisk, and there was j
something in the familiar appellation j
of "old man" that for the lirst tlmei
grated on Forman's feelings. "I think
I'll stroll over to the club with you to
night for a game of bridge."
That was the last meeting between
Forman and the little girl for three
years, ne was then just passed mid
die age and she a young lady.
"Blanche is home." said Fisk to his
friend one day. "Come round and see
"I will with pleasure," replied For
man. and be chose a time for calliny
when he knew his friend would not
be at home.
When Forman called he saw a vision
of loveliness advancing to greet him
with pleasure in her eye and a smile
on her lips. It seemed to hlni all at
once that be had been growing young
er as the girl had b"cn growing older.
Surely this could not be the little girl
whom he had taken to the theater and
to whose prattle he had so often IN
tened. That experience now seemed
to him like n dream.
The child had passed completely Intc
the woman. Nevertheless she had
not recovered from her girlish fancy,
and though she endeavored to conceal
the fact from Forman she f.nilod. ne
saw through the disguise at once, and
his heart was filled with a great joy.
There was a courtship, but a post
facto one. The real courtship had oc
curred three years before.

DO YOU NEED OVERALLS? '
If You Do, Why Don't You Make Them
Yourtelf? It's Dead Easy.
Many a man says that he would bft
glad to do chores about the house, to
trim the grass or weed the garden it
he bad overalls.
The trouble Is that when he wishes
to wear overalls the stores are closed
and be cannot buy them. 1 wonder
that men do not make them for them
selves. To provide a pattern you must have
an outline or perspective plan of your
contour from the belt line down to the
ankles. This may be obtained by sit
ting In wet clay and. on arising, pour
ing plaster of Paris In the Impression.
When this hardens lift the mold, lean
It against the wall and obtain meas
urements with a tapeline. Another
way is to dust talcum powder cn th
carpet until It is thickly coated. Then
sit down on the talcum powder and
carpet, thus removing the talcum from
the floor where you have been. Then
cut around the outlines of that impres
sion with a sharp knife, remove the
carpet so detached, and yju have a
pattern for one side of the overalls.
Purchase several yurds of denirn
and cut it Into the shape Indicated by
either pattern you have now obtained.
Make two sets of these pieces and sew
them edge to edse. Pockets may tx
made by cutting slits in the material
and sewing empty salt sacks. Wilbur
