county for $150,000 to obtain funds for

Miss Sophie Allerton awoke on New
Year's morning, yawned, looked at tbe
clock on the mantel and fell to think

Miss Allerton thsn to most persons,
for It and her birthday fell together.
"Twenty-two years' old!" she said.

If Miss Allerton had an Intimate
friend among men It was John Hard
wlck. John was twenty years her
senior and not the kind of man that
she would think of marrying, being a
plain business man, who had gone to
work when he was seventeen years old.
Having never been to college, he knew
nothing about mental or moral philoso
phy, philology, biology or any other
ology. ni8 main asset was horse sense.
He was so old fashioned that he con
tinued a former practice of making a
New Year's call every year on the Al
lerton family, though it does not ap
pear that be called elsewhere on that
During the afternoon of the day that
Sophie made her New Year's resolution
John Hardwlck made his New Year's
call as usual. Mrs. Allerton happened
to be Indisposed, and her daughter was
obliged to do the honors alone.
"Another year rolled round." remark
ed Mr. Hardwlck by way of opening
the conversation, but as cheerily as if
the announcement were one of congrat
ulation Instead of regret
"Yes." replied Sophie, "and I'm one
year nearer to being an old maid."
"An old maid! Why. you're nothing
but a chit It doesn't Beem any time
at air that I used to give you a doll
"Yes, and those same dolls now line
the baseboard of my former playroom
in the garret But. speaking of old
maids. I'm going to give you a confi
dence that I shall bestow upon no one
else. I rande a resolution this morning
to be married within the year."
"Good gracious!" exclaimed John
Hardwlck, catching his breath. "Whom
will you marry?''
"That's the problem."
"nave you any one in mind?"
"No one in particular. Besides, you
must remember that it's not to be sup
posed that I can take my pick."
John Hardwlck sat thinking for a
few moments, then said. "You'd better
recall that resolution."
"Because marriage Is a matter of
fate. You can't control it"
"I will control it." scid Sophie, set
ting her Hps resolutely.
"Can I help you?"
"In what way?"
"Well, you women know your own
sex better than we men tlo, and we
men know each other better than you
women know us. I might warn you
against tying yourself up with a bad
"And might suggest a good one."
"Oh, no; that would be going too far.
Even in warning you against a Lad one
I would probably get myself disliked.
But I would have the consolation of
doing what I could to save you from
There was a faint touch of sadness
iu this that set Miss Allerton to think
lug in another direction.
"How selfish of me!" she said. "I
have forgotten that you may desire a
home aud those you may love as weli
as I. v hy have you never marnea.
"Well," he replied, with a smile,
"perhaps because it never occurred to
me to fortify myself with a New Year's
January passed away, and Miss Al
lerton had made no further headway
than to select several young men about
her own age, some one of whom she
might encourage to make love to ber.
February passed, and she had not con
cluded which one of them to encourage.
March came in with a good deal of
blustering faultfinding with herself for
having done nothing. April brought a
mild ilirtittion with a man two years
younger than herself, but before the
1st of May she bad concluded that
there was nothing iu blrn. When June
came and the pages of the society Jour
nals were filled with announcements
of forthcoming weddings and Miss Al
lerton remembered that she had not yet
even made a beginning In the keeping
of her resolution she began to worry.
July and August she spent in the coon
try, where she hoped she might meet
her fnte. hut there is always n dearth
or men at summer resorts except o'.a
fellows wbo have retire'!, husbands j
wbo spend wee-k ends with their fam
ilies, and boys. !
This brought Miss Allerton to Sen- i

"But I re spent eight and baren't j
even made a beginning." j
"Marriages have taken place within '
a few days after tbe first meeting cf '
the contracting parties."

marriages are followed
Mr. Hardwlck admitted
Miss Allerton's hopes fell thlfk with
the October leaves, and November
brought an actual misfortune. She

realizing how his friend had set her
heart on keeping hor New Year's reso
lution and how her Illness would stand
in tbe way of her doing so. was very
kind, very sympathetic. He sent her
little gifts snd with one of tbem a
note stating that he had In view Just
the man to make her happy and as
soon as she was able to receive com
pany he would bring bis friend around
and introduce him. "There Is still
plenty of time." be added. "We shall
have all of December."
Miss Allerton appreciated John nrd
wlck's kindly sympathy. " Unfortunate
ly she was in a low physical condition
and easily worried. As has been stat
ed, she was a resolute young woman,
and with her Jw Year's resolution
she had made a second tljnt come
what might she would keep the first,
ner mother knew that something was
troubling her and tried to find out
what It was. But Sophie would have
but the one confidant In thanking
John Hardwlck for one of his atten
tionssome flowers she showed her
condition by a lamentation that she
would not be able to go downstairs, so
her doctor told her, before the middle
of December, and even then If she
met Mr. nardwlck's friend she would
present a wretched appearance, and
how could a marriage possibly .come
of it within two weeks? Such things
were only possible in stories. The
matter was hopeless.
When John Hardwlck read this note
he was troubled. There was evidence
in it that tbe writer was retarding her
recovery by brooding over an Impossi
bility. Indeed, he had been informed
by her doctor that some load was rest
ing upon her mind and pulling her
down. Her condition was serious.
John wished he might do something to
tide her over a few weeks until sbi
6hould regain her strength and throw
off the incubus. He pondered on the
problem with the following result:
He wrote her a note in the name
of one Arthur Clendenln. stating that
his friend. John Hardwlck, had spoken
of her In such high terms that she
must certainly be an estimable and at
tractive young woman. He (Clen
denln) was tired of single life and de
sired a home with some one to luvo
iu it He was sure, judging from what
his friend bad said of her and ber
picture, which had been shown him.
that he should love her devotedly.
"Now, get well, dear heart" he added,
"so that we may be morrled at once."
This letter produced quite a revul
sion of feeling in the Invalid, which
Indirectly relieved the strain. It was
the discovery that she did not wish to
marry this man she bad never seen.
Now that she was at liberty to keep
ber resolution she felt easier about
the matter. She still wished to keep
It but somehow this stranger was no
more acceptable to ber than n wooden
man would be. She wrote John Hard
wlck that she was not yet so anti
quated that she needed to take a dum
my for a husband whom she had never
seen, adding that Mr. Hardwlck seem
ed to have conceived a strange and
unaccountable desire to have ber
"I see." said John nardwlck. after
puzzling over this inconsistent note,
"you can never tell what aa invalid is
going to do. However, I have done all
I can for her and must hope for tbe
