Lakeside, the beautiful summer homo of Mrs. Carter, kIvuhiiM llko nn enchanted palace In the moonlight, while from the brightly lighted ball room came the strains of music, mingled with the sound of dancing and youthful laughter. Hvoi'yl.otly seemed huppy, except one. From the shadows of the upper balcony overlooking the ballroom u young man -watched the gay scene below with a frown. And us he caught sight from time to time of a certain fulry-llke ityuro among tne dancers, a iook 01 aimosi inner pain swept over his line features. "Why, l'hll, my dear boy I" ex claimed the hostess, spying the witch ing figure In the shadow as she strolled by with another matron. "Aren't you dancing?" le answered haltingly that he had a headache ; didn't feel up to It tonight. "I'm afraid you young peo ple stayed out oil the lake In the sun too long today," replied Mrs. Carter. "Whut a pity! And this Is Phoebe's last night here, too." Phoebe's last night! Phil knew that, only too well! And again search ing her out among the dancing throng, he followed the lovely girlish figure In silvery chiffons with longing t'i't'H. Muttering on J excuse to Mrs'. Carter about getting ome fresh air, he turned away and left the balcony, followed by Ills hostess' voice bidding him come back later. Avoiding the gay groups on the ver anda Phil made his way through the shrubbery, and dropping down on u bench by the shining hike, gave him self up to his bitter thoughts. With the strains from the ballroom ringing faintly in Ids ears, he closed his eyes to shut out the bright moonlight nnu went over ih his mind bit by lilt blB acquaintance with Phoebe, Mrs. Car ter's niece, from the day In .tune wlieu she nrrlved, a stranger to tliem all, up to tonight, when she had come to mean Everything to Iilm. lie bad thought her quite the nicest girl he'd ever met that first day, when, arriving at noon she found the rest of the house party gone for a tramp and a picnic, and he, her aunt's nearest uelghbor, had taken her out in Ills canoe on the lake for the afternoon. lie taught her how to paddle the canoe and the memory of her in her simple bllie gingham dress with her golden hair blowing about her laughing face, chine back to him tonight so clearly that he groaned and burled ills face hi ills hands. For lie had never seen her in any simple ging ham gowns again. Chic morning dresses nnd sport suits, correct yachting costumes, lacy embroidered things for afternoon and beautiful evening gowns had followed each other in varying succession, until Phil gave up all hope of ever daring to ask her to share his love and for tunes. Even to his uninitiated mascu line mind Phoebe's clothes spelled much money. He had an Idea that Ills month's salary would not have paid for the silvery gown she wils wearing that evening (and he was quite right). Well, It was madness to dream of asking such a girl to marry a young architect just starting out In business. That was all he could do drenm. With a sigh he got up from the bench and started back to the house. He would have one more glimpse of Phoebe's beloved face before she ,went out of ids life forever, although the sight of her, so dear, yet for him so. unattainable, would lie only one more pnng. He found a place at one of the bnllroom windows where he could look In unobserved. He was searching among the dancing couples for Phoebe, who seemed to have disappeared, when he heard her name repeated Just In side the Window. Someone was talk ing about her to a group of guests, and before he could movo away Phil was rooted to the spot Jin stunned Surprise. "Phoebe?" the gossiping voice went on, "Oh, my, no ! All those stunning clothes she's been wearing Mrs. Carter gave her, all of them." "She looks charming tonight; where is she now?" nsked a second voice. "I saw her go ing toward the garden all nlono a lit tle while ago," the other replied; "sfie'd taken off Iter ball gown and had on that old glnghnm thing she wore when she first cume." Phil turned nwny from the window Just as Sirs. Carter laid a hand on his arm, asking If his head still ached. Strangely enough, his headache was gone, and replying to her kind in quiries with Ill-concealed haste.N he vaulted over the vcrandu railing and dashed around the house toward tho garden. Pigs Foretell Winds. The killing of u pig at sea Is always an occasion of great moment, not only for the reason that fresh meat is to be enjoyed a great luxury on sailing vessels, after perhaps mouths of salt provisions but also because what Is termed a "pig breeze," or favorable wind, mny be regarded as a certainty. Pigs when kept on sailing ships are allowed very frequently to lenve their pens, nnd their movements on such occasions, which are held to foretell the wind to be expected, are watched with tho keenest Interest. Should a pig evince any signs of laziness, lying down or wandering aimlessly about the decks, then this Is a sign that calm weather will come, with little or no wlihl In prospect. Should, howevpr, tho pig show n frisky mooij, with much squealing, then It Is a suro "sign of "big winds," a very negessary factor In the navigation of a sailing ship. TWO IN A BOAT By LULU M. PAULEY. (, 11. by MoClur Nwppr 8nillnte..j 'it's Just three months ago trwlnr." ' reflected Lydln. "In another wiok the hotel will be closed, the guests gone, and we'll bo gone, too." "Yes." nodded IJob; "It seems such n short time since nnd wbat a holtp of nice girls " lie broke'off abrupt-1 ly and bended the boat towards th willows. Lydhi looked- sweetly sympathetic, "Tell mo about them," she urged. "Tho heap of nice girls." "I'd rather you'd Aell your story first," returned Hob, half wistfully. She glanced at him demurely. "All right," s.W ropllod. good-naturedly, and began : "I came down hero the first week In .Tune and met you for the second time since our schooldays. We be came engaged, but the engagement was conditional. That Is. If either of us met some one else whom we liked hot ter, we were nt lllierty to do ns wo pleased, In ense wo let each other know." She paused Impressively nnd struck at the water with her long, white lingers, "t was your Idea, and contained not too slightest opening for one of those Interesting hrench-of-promlso suits." Hob Hushed, but said nothing. "The nxt one to propose." she con tinued, "was Mr.' Hillary, who owns that splendid yacht down nt tho har bor. Then came Mr. Merldnn. Charlie Dibble. Victor and that dear, fat col lege boy, Percy Downey. I refused Percy, of course. He was deadly In earnest, and I was afraid when be should find I was only n summer girl he might do. something unpleasant. Glj;ls should nvold tho mnn who has not lived long enough In this world to understand Its ways." "Little philosopher." applauded Hob. "I'm not very wordly-wlso; aren't you nfrald I'll make a fuss?" Lydln shook her fluffy head. "You made the conditions of our engage ment, so you ought not to make a fuss." "Never." brenthed Rob, quickly ; "I'll not do that. Pray contlnuo your do delightfully Interesting tale," and he splashed tho wnter spitefully with the oars. "The last was Mr. Harper, .who boards at Elm cottage." At the mention of Mr. Harper. Hob burst Into nn uncontrollnble fit of laughter and mnde tho boat rock vio lently. "Stop Immediately!" cried the girl; "you'll upset the boat." "I have two engagement rings," she retorted. "One is yours. You may hay.lt now If you wish." fr. He silently lighted a cigarette. "You'll need it for one of those nice girls you've met," she suggested quiet ly. "Do I know her?" "I believe you do." Ills tones were curt. , "I think," he remarked coldly, turn ing the boat out Into midstream, "thnt we had better be going bnck to tho ho tel. The sun Is already second there Is no moon tonight." "Why. Mr. Porter." she cried, "there was a beautiful moon Inst night, so, of course, there must be another tonight. Mr. Morton and I snt out for a long time Inst evening admiring It" ' "I supposo ho Is the fellow you nre going to marry," Bob growled. "I re member seeing him about tho hotel. Sort of a sissy, Is ho not? One of those, 'I'm mnmma's hoy, I am. I can talk to tho girls. I know how.' " "Oh, nron't you horrid?" laughed Lydln. "I think Mr. Morton Is very nice, Indeed." "And quite ladylike, too," Bob slight ingly added. "You're not obliged to llko him," flashed Lydln. "Certnlnly not. I say, Lydla, I'm go ing nwny in tho morning very early. Do you enro?" "Is that so?" ncr tone was banter Ing. "How disappointed the heap of nice girls will be. Such a bright, eligi ble young man." Bob's tanned fa.ee burned redly nnd he gave his full nttention to the oars. "I supposo It's tho other girl whom you are going to see," she remarked thoughtfully. "How glad she'll he I" "Deuce tnko tho other girl !" broke from Bob's Hps Impatiently. "Lydln, don't you care the lenst little bit?" Lydla's pink cheeks grow n shade deeper and her bine eyes twinkled brightly. "I wish you would explain," sbe snld, provoklngly; "I really do not understand you." Bob ceased rowing and gazed nt.her long nnd steadily. Tlion he turned bis gaze thoughtfully across the river. "Annj't we going In?" she pettishly ftsked. Bob turned his fnco to her with a glow of determination In hls clear, brown eyes. "I'll tell you the name offho girl I love, If you wll tell mo the name of the chap you're going to mnrry," he informed her, rather cheerfully. "Indeed," she returned frigidly; "you needn't bother." "Come now, Miss Vane," he urged. "I'm certain that you are dying to know. I have her photo with me, too." Lydla hesitated a moment, then she luugheil half hysterically. "Show mo tho photo," sbe said. He drew It caressingly from nn In side pocket and hold It out to her. Her lips trembled ns she looked nt it. Then their eyes met. "You urn I be chnp 1 ,nm going to mnrry." ul'l softly.
