Jennie thinks he la just too lovely for
anything. She says he is ho literary and
intellectual ! Anil she's tryix. ; to be that
way herself reading poetry and all that
sort of thing but it's no use. Jennie is a
nice, pretty girl, too pood for a dude like
Algy, but she weighs 150 in the shade,
and she's just too intellectual to think
that the S3 cent candy Aly brings tier
is good, and not intellectual enough to
know what's the matter with it. And as
for literary I It makes me laugh to see
her try to read the books that Algy teUs

She used to take them over to La
Brown's. Lu is literary herself. Jennie
would get her to talk about the books,
and remember what she said. Then she'd
repeat it to Algy in the evening. It was
about the meunest thing I ever knew a
girl to do, because Lu was trying i fas
cinate the poet hors lf, and was working
the literary dodge for all it was worth.
I wouldn't stand any such trick as that,
so I went and told 'Lu how the matter
stood, and the neat day she filled Jennie
up with the funniest lot of nonsense I
ver heard. Jennie didn't know that
there was anything the matter with it,
and when the xa called fine gav him
the usual close. I was under the piano
that evening, and I thought that there
would be a row, but Jennie cried, and
Algy forgave her.
For a month or two before Valentine's
day the poet kept hinting that he was
going to write Jennie a valentine with
poetry in it. ilo didn't say bo right out,
bat he intimated that it depended on the
muse or the spirit, or some other thing,
which he said was moving round inside
of him. Jennie was all in a flutter
The night before Valentine's dav, Algy
called. Jennie had been reading brown
ing's poems in the parlor. She under
stood them atxut as well as she would
an account book in a Chinese laundry.
They were too much for her that even
ing, and she wnt to 6leep with her head
over the buck of a chair. I saw her there,
and then 1 kept a sharp lookout for Algy.
When he came 1 lot him in without mak
ing any noise, and 1 showed 1dm right
into the parlor. I told Jennie afterward
that she had her mouth open so that he
could see clear down her throat. That
was a lie, but I didn't want her to lose
nyof the joke.
While he was waking her up, I hung
bis long, yellow ulster on the hat rack.
If s about the worst I ever saw. It's so
loud I can hear it when he turns the
corner of the street. After I had hung
It up I went through the pockets. 1
usualiy do this because he might brinp a
box of candy or something and forget to
take it in with ldra. This night 1 didnt
find anything but a letter. It had Jen
nie's name on it, and 1 knew that it must
be the valentine he'd been talking so
I thought I ought to know what kind
of poetry he was sending to my sjpter, so
I took it up stairs and openea it with
. little warm water and a lead pencil.
Before reading it I asked mother for a
little peppermint, because I knew what
Algys poems are like, and I wanted to
be prepared. Then I went back to my
room and read this:

The mists clung- round him coldly as a abroad.

Waas Jennie's voice a poke tremulous and law,
A light broke round nun like the oil eery sun,
AndVeuue murmured: "Cupid, briug your
"Eats!" said I; "it's lucky I took the
peppermint. I don't feel very well as
When I began to feel a little better I
decided that tiiat poem had got to be
fixed. It didn't seem to me to breathe
the spirit of the writer. It needed some
thing a little more definite about his per
sonal appearance and that coat of nia.
Besides, I didnt like to be entirely left
out of it myself; so I sat down and wrote
a revised edition of it. I Lad to hurry
up, for Algy wasn't going to stay long
that night, because he was coming on
be next. So I stirred up the muse, as
Algy woufti say, as lively aa I could, and
this was wHat I put down: ...

The poet's form was thin; bis hair was long;

And when it sermeri as If ce'd never go
The old man murmured, "Johnny, Ketlhefuar"
This struck me as being more true to
narur.nd besides. It gave me a show,
so I folded it up nicely, put it into the
envelope and sealed it up. Then I slid
.. down stairs and put it back where I
found it. I wasn t any too soon, for
Algy came out in two or three minutes
and put on his coat. Be took the letter
cut of It's pocket, and shuck an attitude
while he looked at it Jennie wanted to
ese the address, but he wouldn't let her.
"Not yet," ho said, and then he sighed.
"Ah, it, is a fragment of my eouL" Then
she giggled, because she knew it was the
valentine, but 1 simply gazed over the
h-vrmitrtmrn a1 amiled to think hOje

The next day I made it a point 4t get
down to the postoffice before anybody
else and get the mail.' I had begun to
have some suspicions. Jennie might
know my handwriting, in spite of all the
pains I'd taken with it, ana if she did, I
was afraid 1 might not live to see the
fun in the evening. So I took the mail
for the family and went off and had a
snowball battle. Jim Hewitt gave me a
part of his supper, according to an ar
rangement we have in case one of us is
afraid something is waiting for him at
home, and I didnx show up at the house
till after 7 o'clock.
I gave Jennie the valentine just as
Algy rang the door belL She put it
into her pocket and I ran and crawled
under the sofa in the parlor, where I
could see the fun. It's easy enough to
hide in that parlor, because they never
have light enough to see a fellow with.
At first they didnt eay anything
about the valentine; they just talked
nonsense. Algy appeared to think that
it was a special occasion and he must let
himself loose. lie talked sentimpnt.il

The poet hove a sigh with a question
mark after it .
"They were so sweet," said Jennie,
"so like you; so full of souL"
"Ah, yes," murmured the poet, "that
Is it; brief but full of souL How sweet
"They were sort of brief," said Jennie,
catching at this scrap of information.
- w try cUdnt you make 'em longer?"
"The muse, the muse," said Aly, hhe
bade me whisper only one soft word into
your shell like ear."
The shell like ear tickled Jennie nearly
to death, but she didnt understand
about the one word. Could it bo possible
that Algy had written a poem with only
one word in It? That was the question
she was thinking of so hard that I could
almost hear her brain go. I didn't won
der that she was in doubt, because- Algy
ia capable of anything when he gets
"It was a a very soulful word,"
she stammered, finally, . "the soulf ullest
word 1 almost ever saw."
It was getting too warm for her, and
she liad to excuse herself for a minute. I
knew what slie was after. She went out
and read my soulful poem under the hall
lamp. There wasn't much light, and
Jennie was pretty well muddled in her
mind, so that she didn't notice that any
thing was the matter with the verses.
She got an idea how long they were and
that there was a poet mentioned in the
first part of it, and a gun in tu- last.
"I thought my idea of Cupid's arrow
and the fateful shot was rather clover,"
said Algy, as soon as she got back.
"Yes, it was clever, awfully clever; so
like you," said Jennie, more confused
than ever. "I noticed right off that
somebody got shot, but I thought it was
with a gun."
The poet evidently took this for a bash
ful maiden's joke, and he amllnrj a weird,
"No, it was a. bow," he said; "Cupid's
bow. Venus calls to Cupid, don't yon
"Was his other name Johnny?" asked
Jennie, who isn't very well up in my
thology. "I thought she c&Jled hi
"No, his name isnt Johnny. After a
little experience with your brother, I
can't imagine how you could think any
thing nice could be called Johnny. Iam
afraid you would make mock of my
Jennie was almost in tears.
"Oil, no; indeed I'm not," she sold.
"It was ever so sweet, and Til keep it
always. It was so fine in its sentiment
I never saw anything so delicately
worded as that apology for your ulster.
But you needn't have said a word. I
think it's a pretty one."
"My ulster," said Algy, opening his
eyes very wide; "excuse me, but if the
poet's cloak of dreams is going to be
called an ulster, and if the poet is ex
pected to apologize for wearing it, per
haps we would better part even thus."
No, no; don't go' pleaded Jennie.
"I'm sure you said something about your
ulster. Please let me read It to you."
The poet subsided into a chair and
Jennie took out her little valentine and
sprung it on him. I could 6ee his face
ail the time. - At the first line he started
to say something, but he couldn't; his
jaw dropped lower and lower, until it
rested on his shirt bosom. At the end
he shut it with a snap, and started up.
' "Who baa tampered with my verse
who. who?" he howled, and then his
tone changed to the sarcastic, "So thoae
are the soulful lines that were 'so like
me.' Go, woman, we are apart"
"Why. aren't they vours'r sobbed Jen
"Mine? Oh. horrors! Come, let ma
