6he Wanted ' Meet the Girl Who Broke
What wod; er that Harold Huatleton was
a proud and 1 appy man! Had he not won
the heart and hand of the fairest and love
liest girl in the hotel the much sought
after belle, hose bewildering beauty had
captivated tl e hearts of all the other men
from the gray haired old grandfather to the
younger but more knowing college sopho
more? And she had promised to be his to mar
ry him before the snow flew, and to match
her bridal Mushes against the crimson
splendors of the frost tinted leaves in the
coming autu nn.
No wonder Harold could scarcely believe
in his good luck. And as he sat by her side
and watched the evening star glimmering
above the on nge flush which marked where
the sun hud sunk behind the hills, ho felt
moved to a.'k her the fourteenth question
of the Lover's Catechism, i. e., "How it
happened thut she had chosen him out of all
the men in her wide circle of acquaintance
to be responsible for her future happiness?"
"Surely sha must have known better fel
lows than le was," he urged. "Richer,
handsomer, more athletic. Why had she
"Oh, Harold, you mustn't be too mod
est," replied Ada as she gently pushed back
the hair frcm his forehead. You have a
great many traits which none of my other
friends possi sses. You are so thoughtful of
my welfare, so tender and considerate, so
obedient to uiy slightest wish. I think it
was those things which first won me to
you, and I hve never regretted it, for, Har
old, you are simply an ideal lover."
"Oh, my darling! You don't know how
glad I am to hear you say so!" he exclaim
ed as he drt w her to him and kissed her
"Yes, dear, and some day you must let
me meet her and thank her for making you
what you are," continued Ada.
"Meet whom? My mother?" asked Har
old. "No, Ha-old, not your mother," she
said sweetlj . "I want to thank the girl who
broke you 1 1!" Brooklyn Life.
Only a Little Correction.
"Here is ;i poem which you may publish
in your pap jr." said a young man with eyes
in a fine frenzy rolling as he entered the
editorial dcor. "I dashed it off rapidly in
an idle moment, and you will find it in its
rough state, as it were. You can make
such correc ions as you think necessary."
"Ah, mm h obliged," said the editor. "I
will give yc u a check -for it at once."
"You art very kind," said the contribu
tor. "I sui.ll be delighted."
"There yr ii are." said the editor, handing
"Many tlianks!" exclaimed the young
man. "I will bring you some other poems."
When he got to the door, he suddenly
paused, th n he came buck.
"Excuse me," he sahl, "but you forgot to
fill up the heck. You have not written the
date, nor the amount, nor have you signed
"Oh," sa d the editor, "that is all right.
You see, I have given you a check in its
rough state, as it were. You can make
such corrections as you think necessary."

The gentle Gladys eat drearily in the
gloaming in the front room. She was very
miserable, for on the previous night she
had had words with her own, and now she
fears that her haughty Harold will not call.
She hears a step, a ring, a voice she knows,
and some one speaking to the servant in
the hall. She will not wait till a light is
brought, but gently calls, "Come in!"
The visitor enters, and with a sigh of
awful volume the fair Gladys casts herself
Into his arms and softly murmurs:
"Oh, my darling, I am so glad you've

far distant when mothers will consider the real

stead of the various quack nostrums which are
destroying their loved ones, by forcing opium,
morphine, soothing syrup and other hurtful
agents down their throats, thereby sending
them to premature graves."
