WMAN N THE CASE
By CHARLES BENSON BRIGGS.
From the moment when Henry
Mills saw a copy of -"The Matrimonial
Register" in the shack of his neighbor
and erstwhile friend Jim Bates, a sul
len hostility took the place of his
former warm regard. He did not men
tion his discovery; he glanced over
the paper and thrust it back into its
hiding place just as Bates entered.
After a few indifferent remarks
about the crops, he tookhis depar
ture. It was some time before he. en
tered the cabin again.
Both men were fairly prosperous
farmers in the wheat region of the
Dakotas. Both were about the same
age-thirty; they had arrived almost
at the same time, five years' before,
aid had taken up adjacent acres. And
both were on the way to success.
The friendship that had sprung up
between them was a matter of neigh
borhood comment. They went gun
ning together and lent each other a
hand whenever it was required. They
were both bachelors, and usually spent
their evenings together, talking .over
the affairs of their limited world and
smoking i couple of friendly pipes un
til bed time. Then the visitor would
mount his horse and ride homeward.
Mills flung himself down upon his
bed in deep disgust. He took a copy
of the "Matrimonial Register," *hich
he had secreted under his mattress,
and looked through it.'One paragraph
especially caught his eye:
0'I want to be married as soon as
possible. My name is Estelle Read.
residence Baltimore, age twenty-four.
I am a brunette, tell and considered
good looking. Am well educated, can
dance and play the piano, have -a pas
sion for country life and should like
to make a happy home for my hus
band upon 'some'ranch in the West.
Have a'fortune-of $10,000,. but cannot
touch it for a year, till I am twenty
The paragraph was marked with the
Imprint of a thumb. It was Mills'
thumb. And Bates' paper had thumb
-H Sat Thbere in a L.thargy of
marks' about the same paragraph.
However, those .were the prints of
"The durned cuss!" mttered Mills;
as he lay smoking upon his bed.
"Thought 'he'd steal a march on me,
didn't he? But here's where he plays
second fiddle! -
Fzom the same- hiding place he ex
tracted a letter, written 'in a flowing
feinine band and headed Baltimore.
It ran -s. follows:
"Dear Friend: From what you have
written to'me I fancy yonsar'e just the
gentleman'who would makeime a good
husband. Especilng am' I fascinated
by your charming description ofwcoun
try life. I enclose yositmy photo
graph as you request.' Now, friend,
there is onea little particular that must.
be said, though it goes to my heart
to say. it. I am all alone in the world
and working for my daily bread. My
guardian -does not want me to get
married and he will not advance,-me
any 'of m'y money. I ,shall have to
ask you to remit me $100 for my ex
penses and $100 more if you wish
me to arrive with a trousseau.
- "Yours lovingly,
The photograph was of a tall and
statuesque brunette, and though he
had gazed ardently upen it several
times, Henry Mills did not hesitate to
'give another sentimental stare into
the limpid features.
F'rom the moment his epistolary
courtship began Mills had felt- a wan
ing of his old time affection toward
his neighbor. He began to look ask
ance at him for his rough ways. Bates
was all very well to spend a social
evening with,,but how could one in
vite him to his house to meet a hand

pnchant for putting his feet on the
table, not to mention certain hablts
in regard to his pipe which were~ not

uted it to jealousy. .Fr MU was
building a. substantial addition to his
cabin and rushing it up as fast as he
could have it done. When next he
strolled - over toward his former
friend's house he was amased to see
that the little shack was also being
-tranathemed Workmen were puttlng
up 4 brknk etaison and a shingled
roof, an& Bates, attired in a brand
new suit of clothes, was surveying
operations with a cigar in his mouth.
A dreadful suspicion which Mills 1
had entertained now grew into a oer
"Going In for a wife, eh, Jim?" he
called jocularly, but with an odd sink
ing feeling which Bates' next words
"Well, I don't know but I might,
Hanr," answered the other. "Maybe
there's a little girl down East-"
The rest of' Jim's words were spok
en to the air, for Henry Mills was
hurrying away as fast as he could, go.
He was determined.-to raise that sec
ond hundred at once and send It. He
had only sent a hundred, regretting
that times were hard. He was glad
that he had-held out a lingering prom
ise of more.
A letter was waiting for him. It
was In the same .fluent handwriting..
"Dear Friend," it ran, "Yours re
ceived and thank.you so much for the
journey money. Now, Henry, let us
be frank with one another. My clothes
are n worn out, and I am too much
of a lady to start out to be married
in shabby things,, so I must have an
other hundred and fifty, or else I may
have to consider a proposal I have
from somebody who doesn't live a
thousand miles away from you."
Mills saddled his horse and half an
hour later, got down outside the bank
in the nearest town where his money
was kept' As he descended he saw
Bates coming out. He was crumpling
a number of brand new notes In his
fist. .- The two men. glared at each
oter, started forward, and ihen,' with
a simultaneous impulse, turned their
backs on each other and went their
Fromn that time on frank hostility
reigned between them. There were
no more friendly evenings together,
and the only time they met was when
they besieged the post offee on the 1
arrival of the thrice-a-week mail.
HenrytMllls sent $150 and Implored
Estelle to come out on the next train.
After that It was a weary period of

"She did not enclose the $250 that
he had sent. Altogether, including
the' house and the furniture, Henry
Mills was "out" in the neighborhood,
He sat there In a-]ehargy of de
spair.- for, a long time. But suddenly
there .came- to him a' thought that
strangly brightened and cheered him.
He ssyddled his horse hatiy and yode
over to Jim's. Jim wa mot outside
in his fields. .He knocked at the door.
"Come in," muttered a bollow 1910%.,
full of poignant anguish. 1Henry went'
in. Jim Bates, was lying upn his neW
loung, a letter on ,the floor beside
him. As his old friend entered he'
struggled to his feet.

Suddenly the same thought seemed
to come into Jim Date' mind for his

broad grin;-and his hand went out to

"Saime with you, Hank?" he asked.
"Same here," said Henry Mills, and
their. hands 'met and were clasped
"I guess we've been a couple of
fools, eh, Hank?" asked Jim.
"How soon did you begip to suspect
me, Jim?" asked Henry.
"Day I come into your shack and

"Well," said the other thoughtfully,
