1HI asked about it and was told it

Next afternoon he alighted from a

A river rolled grandly to the
south. The -hills wvere blue, save
.11)0n their summits, wvhich were
-imsoned by the dying sun. From
ifar came the drowsy tinkle of a
30wvbell. A slow wind brought the
cent of fresh filds and flowvers.

rambles, as a "Devon rose."
This was *a bad sign. In all his
thirty years he had. seen n'6-one like
her-so simple, so unaffected, so
sympathetic, so beautiful. This was
a worse sign. He measured mentally
the height of his bank account, and
fonnd it sufficient. This was the
worst sign of all.
He laid his approaches with what
he conceived to be consummate art.
In his story "Heart to Heart at
E elitide." published in the Beacon
Light, there was a scene in which
Lord Ranald de Cholniondeley had
said to Lady Blanche de Courtney
"I love you wildly, miadly, pas

into my being. As the dewdrop
-rembles in the flower chalice, so

wondered how it would sound if

It was late in September. There
was a slight chill in the air. The
girl, wrapped in ilcecy light stuff,
sat,* as was her custom, in the stern
of the boat, which made no sound as
it drifted. In the moonlight her
brown eyes shone like jewels. B3e

Will you marry me?"
She did not answer. She had
grown suddenly pale, and was star

a hundred yards away. Suddenly
she clasped her hiands, and a wave
of crimison rose in her face. A
happy smile curved her lips. Then
she gazed earnestly at her compan

gravely. "Forgive me, Mr. Magnus,

l'u silence lie pricked up his ears.
The prow~ of the boat grated upon
the shore. As the girl stepped light
ly to land she was taken into the
arms of a tall, young .fellow in
khaki uniform. She stayed there
a full five minutes, while Magnus
stood akwardly by. *'Then she
turned, saying:
