The girl whom Donald loved irst year
,was christened Frances, and ho used
to call her Farmhy. Also, he addressed
her by various endearing terms, but
that Is of no consequence. Such words
aply to the new love as to the old. A
fel'ow may call a girl "sweetheart" as
the result of a halbit of speech ac
quired before ho knew her, and she
cannot detect the crime, but if he ler
mista In calling her "dearest Fanny"
when her nIame' is Ielen she will in
dict him for perjury.
It is painful to speak evil of a
twoman, but candIor compels the state
mient that Fanny wis a dressniaker's
dummy anliniated by a soul that would
have been considered imercenary in a
pawnbroker. Donald 00ould not per
ceive it. Everybody else knew that
her desertion of him and her narriage
.with a man old enoigh to be her
grandfather ought to have been pub
lished by the press uider the head of
"Financial Transactions." But )onald,
,who was a highly imaginative person
and had always surrounded Fanny
.with a mist of illusions, believed that
the occurrence was one of those subtle
,mysteries of love which, in the words
of Lord Dundreary, no fellow can find
A man of simpler mind would have
sent up a strong prayer of thanksgiv
ing for a great deliverance, but it
pleased this dreamer to imagine that
,he had suffered a loss.
Fanny was a young lady with con
siderable social pretensions, and, after
ahe turned her back upon Donald, he
turned his upon society. Ile wander
ed into artistic Bohemia, and there lie
,met Helen, who was regarded in that
region -as an infant phenonienon. As
a matter of fact, she was 22 years old
.nd had worked hard under -lie very
best teachers since the earliest day
Owhen such instruction could profitably
begin, but she looked like a girl of 163
who had never done anything more
aerious than chase butterflies in the
filelds. Henco Bohemiagk, which judges
1by appearances even when the facts
In the case are perfeetly well known,
persisted in holding her to be an in
Donald was more shocked than
-pleased when this ideal of maidenly
-innocence invited him to come to see
her any time, adding the information
that she was living in a big building
full of bachelors of both sexes, in a
'little suilt that wvas all her own. 1Her
guick eye caught the expression that
tiitted across his countenance, and she
?Was amused, perhaps a little piqued
"I am chaperoned by a large bull
dog," said she, "and when you see
his teeth you will admit that the
strictest social code could require no
*At an early day Donald made the ac
quaintance of this novelty in chaper
ons, and he was forced to confess that
the animal was competent to p'reserve
the decorum of any company accord
ing to such idleas as he might have
on the subject. Yet the young man
.was still of the opinion that the mte
nage left much to be dleslred. HeI was
so much older than Helen, haviug just
turned 30, that direful milestone at tihe
end of youth, that he ventured to give
"You're going to be famous some
day," said he, "and in my opinion it
.will be pretty soon. Then you'll want
to get into society, and this sort of
thing will be against you. If you only
had an aunt or something like that"
"Why in the world should I want to
get into society?7" asked the girl.
"Everybody wants to get into so
ciety," saidl Donald. "That's where
the money Is, amid, of course, your
ultimate object in piainting pictures is
to sell them for the best possible
Drices. Moreover, though you are too
-young to think of It yet, there is the
question of matrimony."
"I meet a man or two, now and
then," said Helen, "poor, tbut honest,
moat of them, and yet"
"My young friend," rejoined Donald,
"never marry except for love, but re
member, as an artist, that you can
view a great deal more scenery from a
hteam yacht thtan you can from the
Jersey City ferryboat."
"Cerberus," said Helen to the dog,
"do you hear what the young man is
"You do not practice what you
Vreach," continued the girl. "If you
did, you would not be here."
S"Oh, it's all over with me," he re
poined. "It makes no (difference what
