Ramsey bore with him for a moment,
theni spranlg uponll hitu they wrestled
vlggorously, broke a chair and went to
the floor with a crash that gave the
chandelier in Mrs. Meigs' parlor, be
low, an attack of jingles.
"You let me up !" F~red gasped.
"You take your solemn oath to shut

"All right. I give my solenm oath,"
said Fred ; and they rose, arranging
their tousled attire.
"Well," said Fred, "when you goin'
to call on her?"
"You look here !" Ramsey approached
him u dangerously. "You just gave me
"I leg !" Fred cried, retreating. "I

thought maybe after such an evening
you' feel as a gentleman you ought to
go and ask after her health.'
"Now, see here-"
"No, I mean it; you ought to," Fred
insisted, earnestly, and as his room
mate glared at him with complete sus
"iclon, he added, xplanation. "Yout

send in your card, and say you felt you

"You save your good turns for
yourself," Ramsey growled, still ad
vancing upon01 hiim.
But i he insidious Mitchell, evadIng
him, fled to the oiher end of the room,
piecet up his cap anud changed his
enier. "C'me on, ole bag o' beans,

It's time. We'll call this all onf."
"You better !" Ramsey w'rned him;
and thy trotted out togather.
But as they wenot along, Fred took
Rarsey's arm conidentally, and said:
"Now, honestly, Ram, ole man, when
are you goia' to-"
Ramsey was still red, "You look
here! Just, say one m ore word-"

he broke it but once and then in well

and up and dowIn the street young
couples lolled along, young families

the rest of the world of that growing
