K. BROWN j
London society experienced a re
markable thrill when Vandyke K.
Brown, the young American multimil
lonaire, announced his intention of
crossing the "herring pond" in search
of an English bride. Aristocratic ma
trons trotted out their marriageable
daughters as bait for this Croesus and
spent fortunes at the milliner's. Of
course the wise knew all along that he
would choose his bride from English
society or, If not, he might find a sult
able mate among the fair galaxy of
ladies on the west end stage. One or
other was Inevitable.
But Vandyke K. Brown did not carry
out any of the maneuvers already plan
ned for him. One day he caluity shav
ed off his mustache and beard and. as.
suming the commonplace appellation
of Richard Seymour, set out Flone for
England. Society on both sides of the
Atlantic was disgusted at thus being
given the slip and for the nonce felt
It was a bright June morning, and
Richard Seymour, as he should now be
called, was seated in a first class rail
way carriage at London Bridge station
waiting for tie train to carry him
down to the qriet little watering place
of Westbrook, where he contemplated
spending a couple of months in seclu
sion and enjoying himself. So far he
had eluded capture by society and
laughed at its futile efforts to thrust
him into a fashionable marriage.
He was the only occupant of the car
riage, br.t as the train was on the
move the door was thrown open, and a
man in a large brimmed felt hat jump
ed in. Seymour looked up as a porter
banged the, door with a crash as only
porters can and then continued the
study of his morning paper.
Before he reached Westbrook he
found himself in a dilemma. Firstly,
a paragraph in the paper proved that
he would have some difficulty in main
taining his incognito after all, for 11
announced his intended visit to West
bl.ok. Now, this on the face of it was
strange, because he had revealed his se
cret to no one. Secondly, a careful ex
amination of his fellow traveler's face
caused him to start, for the man be
tore him bore a striking likeness to
himself prior to his having undergone
Ahe shavitg operation. He therefore
began to wonder whether the para
graph in the paper referred to himself
9r to the other man, who so-nearly re
#embled Vandyke K. Brown as New
York knew him.
But on reaching Westbrook his
goiDts were at once set at rest Step
pigon to the platform, he was aston

.was no need. The mayor came forward
and, passing him without so much as a
look, went straight up to Seymour's fel
low traveler,, who was now struggling
with a weighty portmanteau, and held
.put his hand.
".Welcome, Mr. Vandyke Brown," he
The other looked up, surprised, and
then grasped the outstretched hand
"Good morning, Mr. --. Whom
have I the pleasure of addressing?"
"Oh, my name's Martin. I happen to
-er-be the mayor of Westbrook."
"Pleased to meet you, I'm sure. I
expect my visit to this town will be a
very pleasant one. But I never antici

the twain moved off. Some outrageous
mistake had been made accidentally
or on purpose; but by whom? And
who was the pseudo Vandyke K.
Brown. He thought It would be better
to let things remain as they were, for
the present at any rate, although lie
resolved to keep his eye upon his im
personator. "But for cool cheek that
man takes the biscuit, with the factory
thrown in." he muttered.
And when he had ordered a porter to
pile his unpretentious luggage on the
top of a cab he turned away and in
dulged in a hearty laugh.

"I suppose so," said Madge Wilmot V
slowly, lowering her head, for she felt t<
the color creep to her cheek, although
his back was toward her. ti
"In that case would it surprise you F
very much if I told you that I love you g

him to half turn in -his seat. e
"No-that- is, yes, it might." P
He laughed. "Well, Madge, it's true a

faced her. She vouchsafed no reply,
but lie knew his words had made al r
impression, so he took her hand.
"I do believe you," she said at length, b
but there was sadness in her tone.
"Why, Madge, you're crying!"
She b-ushed aside a few stray tears 8
and bravely looked him in the face.
"You have made a confession to me.

she said. "I loved you the first time 1I
"But listen. Father and moilher liked
you, too, until you told them that you
were a traveler for a firm of-jam
makers. Dick, can't you change your
calling, because-because I ask it?"
For the first time that day Seymour
felt nonplused. Haphazard he had
styled himself a commercial traveler
in order to make his incognito the more
complete, and the result was unexpect
ed. At first he was half inclined to tel'
her everything, but before he came to
a decision she continued:
"It is difficult, I know. Perhaps I
ought not to have asked it. But, oh,
Dick. I don't know how to tell you
He started and looked into her face.
"You are hiding something," he said.
Suddenly she covered her face with
her hands and burst into tears.
"Yes, I am. That wretched man!
Oh, that wretched man!" she sobbed.
"Madge, dearest, whatever is the
matter? What wretched man?"
"Mr. Vandyke Brown."
He turned his head away and with
an effort restrained himself from burst
ing out laughing. But the gravity of
the situation soon stifled his mirth.
"What-the man they are making all
this fuss over in Westbrook? I came
down in the same carriage with him.
What has he to do with you?"
"Nothing; only he's been f'aking love
to me, that's all."
"The dickens he has!" Seymour
clinched his teeth.. began to think
the joke had been ca ed too far. "Tell
