you to gc away at 1.'
-Well. it's .Just a coincdience: there's 1
no harm in having a "litle chat for the i
sake of old times." he returned eagerly. 1
"If you are the sort of man that- i

gr'imiy. "It wou'd he one of my sis

"I never forgot you." he returned, by
no means truthfully, for he had quitei
forgotten his old love, in new ones,
till hien name recalled her to his re

had never really loved any girl but
her, and was quite sure of it when her '
eyes looked tip into his-.
Then Bobbie (lashed into them.
"Here's the mater." lie said excitedly;:
"you'd better hook it. you chap, and
Jen can look the othaer wiay." "I wishI
you would go away:" said his sister
very savagely. Bobby winked.
"Oh, spoiling sport, amt I! Weill.
here's the mater anyway."
"Mother." said Miss Bruce composed
ly, "I think you remember Mr. Tomlyn:
I met him unexpctedly a minute ago."
"Very unexpectedly!" murmured
Bobbie. "My, you're a cool 'un, JTen2"'
"Hlow do you do?" said Jenny's
mother very graciously. "What a pleas

some tea?"
"I shall be charmed," said Mr. Tomn
"I hope you mean business a}ll

Tromlyin in the hail, as the young man
at last departed. Jenny flushed a finei
s(carle't, and Mr. TLomlyn grew suddenly

"Good-by. Miss Bruce, so pleased to

Mr'. Tomlyn hlanded over half-a

plained; "keep it."
"But is it worth it?" Eobbie thought
it polite to say, while grabbing hastily
at the coin before Mr. Tomlyn could
think better of it and tind a shilling
al'er ali.
"1 think." said Mr. Tomlyn siowly.]
"that 1t may--possibly-be worth it.
Do you ever take your sister out for a

the boy turned to go.
"No f'ear!" was the vigorous reply.
"I think I would if I were you. It

Jenny glanced sharply at Ulame,
whose face betrayed him. but she made
no remark. She permitted the change
of esecort without a word. There was
something decidedly attractive about
Robert Tomlyn.

According to Ca;pitain HI. H. Payntar,
ho recently read a paper on the sub
et before the Royal United Service
nstitution in London, motor cars are
fkely to play a very important role in

Iwell upon motor cars as fighting ma
~hines, but as means of rapid convey
ine of officers to distant parts of an
~xtensive battlefield. The tendeney of
nodern warfare is to scatter troops
ver a vast extent of country. Tak
ng advantage of the roads which now
:raverse all civilized countries in every
iirection, motor cars could lbe utilized
y commanders to obtain ratpidly a
~oplete survey of the field of action.
:wing to the severe shocks to which
they must be exposed, no speed limit

Chicken-fed rabbits heretofore have
