at a round, tanned arm, ?true* the
elephant's die and exploded. A ahorr?
ar of torpedoe? followed the first on?.
A doten young m-en and women push
d through the crowd at the curb to
hurl their noisy niisail**? at the ele
e"iniit. The great animal, the star at
t?_ctio_ of the circus parade, jogged
baa way along the street undisturbed
by the bombardment.
Th? girl who had thrown the first
torpedo was leading the bombarde i"?
Tue crowd on _M eidewalk wa? laugh?
ing and c_eering. The pranks of the
residents of the summer colony of
l_.kemoore were the chief joy of the
permanent inhabitants of the village.
The leader of the orpodo Ihrowera
ran down the street crashing her mis
Biloa against the unconcerned elepliant.
A torpedo flew from h?-r hand and
exploded at the feet of a man stand?
ing at the edge of the sidewalk.
The girl turned to eat where her
torpedo had struck. The man was
looking at her with amusement and
curiosity. Her merry face sobered.
The box of torpedoes in her hand drop?
ped to the ground. One of the men
la her party picked it up aud handed
it to her. But she shook her head,
turned from the bombarded elephant
and the ruau watching her from the
sidewalk and disappeared in the crowd.
At one of the summer cottages Grace
Audrey met Ralph Norman.
"W# have seen each other before,"
"Indeed?" .Miss Audrey's brows were
elevated. There was a supercilious
aote in _er voice.
"I saw you circus day at the pa?
"It it possible?" she asked, indiffer?
Two weeks later Ralph Norman was
still in LAkemoore at the summer no?
All morning he and Grace Audrey
had been sailing in her boat. Norman,
who had been sitting in the stern of
the boat, left his seat to adjust the
sail. A sudden puff of wind struck
the sail. The boat tipped far over and
Norman was in the water.
Grace pulled down the sail and the
boat stopped. But Norman was not
swimming. Once h er?se to the sur?
face. Then he sank again. Grace
caught up the oar? and rowed the boat
toward him. As he rose a second time
she saw that his eyes were closed.
She jumped int? the water, caught
_Im by the collar of his coat and drew
him to the boat. With one hand she
hedl his head above the water, with
the ?other she clung to the boat. Peo?
ple on the shore 'had seen the acci?
dent, and several boats were coming
A nhour later Grace and Norman
sat on the beach at LAkemoore. They
wore dry clothes, and Norman's head,
which had been struck as he fell from
?he boat, was bandaged.
"You will have to marry me," Nor?
man said decidedly. When a woman
saves a man's life she always marries
him. I've loved you since the first
time. I saw you. You weer throwing
torpedoes at an elephant and?"
"And you loved me because I was
acting like a spoiled tomboy." The
girl's face was white; her hands were
clenched-. "I shall never marry you.
Please?please don't speaik to me again
of your love for me. I can't stand it.
I won't listen."
That afternoon Grace Audrey walk?
ed through the streets of summer
homes, past the villages and out into
the country. A mile from the village
she came to a house which stood back I
from the road. It was a large, ramb- !
ling "house, with wide verandas. Vlaea
grew over the verandas and roses ?
climbed to the wondows. Majestic old ?
trees spread their great branches over :
the house and made a thick shade on ;
the green lawn. There was no sign '
of human life about the place.
Grace sat down on an old bnch in
a corner of the veranda. Long, goldr
?n lances thrown by the setting sun
lay across the lawn. Occasionally a
bird's bedtime chirp broke the silence.
"Grace, what brings you here?"
Ralph Norman stood beside the ve?
"What brines you?" she retorted.
"This house is empty. No one il ves
here. I came here because?be
He drew himself over the railing
and sat down near her. "Tell me,

Two girls, each sixteen years old,
pretty anil well ?Iresscd, wer?* ar?

charged with linking stolen six
rings from C. F. Karr, a Jeweler.
The pair described themselves a9
Lottie JLochl and Helen Wood?
\\ li?-ii taken before Inspector
Boardiiutn at headquarters, the
IM>li<-e say, tliey confessed between
sobs that they had paid a half
dozen visits together to the store
and walked out each time with a
ring. The six stolen rings arr
valued at a little more than $100.
Fach ?rot- one ring when arrest?
ed. Three others were recovered
from pawnsliopts. They could not
recollect what disposition tliey
ha?: made of the sixth.
'11 ie pi ?is were taken to the
house of detention for action by
the Juvenile Court. Their parents
were notified of their predica?
ment, and they were soon re?
leased, however, on $50 bond to
appear liefone ?Judge I>e_acy. The
methods employed to obtain the
rings are those known to the po?
lice as "pennyweight" thefts.
"Pennyweight" thieves enter a
store togetlier and ask to be
shown some rings. While examin?
ing them they deftly palm them,
<?ue at a time, and hand back to
the person behind the counter
cheap duplicates, escaping before
detection. The detectives say the
girls were derer ut the tntck. At
the jeweler's it was said a young
woman waited on the accused six
times before they were suspected.
Their visits began a month ago.
Each time aft?*r Inspecting a tray
f ul of rings they walked out with
one, the police say. Their last
vin!t took place Saturday. After
they had departed the proprietor
became suspicious and Inspected
his stock. Finding six cheap rings
in his- trays, he suspected these
girls and furnished an accurate
deacijpUoa of the pair. Helen
Wood warft was arrested In a the?
ater and the other on F Street,
near Thirteenth, a few minutes
later. A craving for jewels was
blamed by both girls for their
troubles. The most valuable ring,
worth $-10, Is still missing.
