ROMANCE OF ROSES
PRETTY LOVE STORY THAT BE

It Was Sallie That Gave the Young
Couple an Excuse for Calling, But
I* a Short Time' They
Needed No Excuse.
Betty, the secretary of our club, has
had a pretty-love story, relates the
Chicago Tribune. It began in a ran

At (lhe bol toin of the steps stood a boy
selling flowers. Ile had only two
roses left, glorious, half-blown piuk
"I'll have those rolses, if you please,"
said Betty. And, "I'll have those roses,
If you please," sad another voice at
the same time. 'he other voice be
longed to i man. Ile wis a young
man, and when Betty looked up and
lie looked down, both smilled. Despite
the dampness of his clothes the boy
"Well," ie sold, "which of you is
goin' to have 'em1 ?"
"You," said Betty. "You spoke
"No, you. I think you did," sad Mhe
The boy, being a diplomat 11s %yell as

"Whly not?" said thle man11. "I want
my roses for a friend who Is ill, and
she can't sinell but one rose at a time,
now, cal shle?"
"I suppose not," Said Betty. "1 (110

and she can't snell but one rose at a
So they "(divyied ip." They left the
station together, and since their wi'yS
lay in the same direction, they walked
together for three blocks. Presently
both turned lito the samo side street
and both stopped at the sam1e houso in
the middle of the block and both rang
the bell of the 8a11 flat.
"Don't tell me it is Sall Miller that
you are bringing that rose to," said
"Sure it is," sa1d Betty.
So Ithey climbed tile stairs together.
"Won't Sallie be surprised to see us
coming together?" said Betty. Sallib
"I didn't kn1ow that you two knew
each other," she 111d.
"W' (l1'wtwe didll't," said Betty.
Then they told the story of the roses.
Sallie liked the roses, but, being a
symhipitletle soul, she liked the story
better. "I am so glad," she said. "You
imust both come again on Wednesday
at this same time."
They went away -together. Their
talk wais Imostly of Sallie. Enichl said
how wonderful it was that the other
knew Sallie. At tile corner they sep
"I go tills wily," said Betty. "And I
that," said lie. "I hope we will meet
again-at Sallie's," he added.
"0, yes, at SalIie's," Said Betty.
Of course tIhey lot-at Sallie',.

old. They will be married s(on.
