There could not be the slightest doubt about it. All my friends remarked the sigrns and de plored the fact. I suppose I .was really very bad company. They called her a flirt. My beautiful Gertrude a flirt! And I could net but acknowledge that they were not alto gether wrong1. But then, Gertrude Dix on is fascinating1, with a pair of Spark ling brown eyes, an apple-blossom com plexion, and the voice of a sons' bird. Are they not sufficient attributes to the pastine of Hirting? And throughout it all I felt that she really cared for me. True, she f.irted, but sometimes in a serious vein. Al ways, however, she laughed me off when I approached her with my heart in my hand. And I went away more dejected than ever. My best friend, Phil Mason, admon ished me: but in vain. "Can't ycu see she's a fiirt, old man?" said he. I only smiled. "I feel kind of responsible, too," he added. "If I hadn't introduced you to her tnere would have been none of this bother." "My dear Phil." said I, "that was the beft thins1 you ever did for me." Ife shrugged his shoulders and mut tered something inaudibly. "I hate to see a man fooled by a wo fan." said he. "You misjudge her, Phil." I answered, quickly. "I know her better than you do." "Well, my mother has asked her down toWoodley. and as you are coming with me, perhaps things may happen. Per haps!" And he laughed. Phil was very much my friend, and was almost too eager to help me. I picked up my small Gladstone and began measuring it. "What are you doing " asked Phil. "Miss Dixon admires this very much, so I am going to buy her one just like it," I answered. "You waste a lot of money,' he laughed. He went out with me, however, and we succeeded in purchasing a bag iden tical with my own. It was a week later that Miss Dixon and we two traveled down to Woodley together. My suit had scarcely pros pored meanwhile. She encouraged mc without seeming to, but, with the ut most dexterity, avoided anything ap proaching a proposal. Phil said she played on me more than ever. There was no doubt she flirfed with others, too. I knew it, even while I felt, and even she almost let me tnow, that I was the favored one. She had accepted the bag I bought fot her with a "So good of you, Harry." and had it now with her. For me to buy it seemed to be as natural as for her to accept. It meant nothing. In the railway carriage Phil was er ratic, almost rude. "Hal has the blues," he said to her, nodding at me. "Why don't yor. cure him?" "I'm not a doctor," she laughed. "P-ut you know the cure," he persisted. "What is it?" she asked. "A fitting reward." "You are really obscure," she said. ' Then will you not take up the case?" he jested. "Yon are evidently familiar with it and should be the doctor," she retorted. She hnd the best of it, and I smiled at her victory. "He will not take my advice," said Phil. "Then you must leave him to Fate." "'1 will." he s-niled. "but I think I'll retain a finger." And he kept his word. At the station Phil took charge of our two bags and his own, and we walked down to Woodley together. About an hour later I was sitting1 alone in the shrubbery when I heard a footstep, and Miss Dixon came up to me "I've been looking for you," she said, quietly. "I wish I had know," I answered. And then I noticed that she looked very set-ions. "Is there anything the natter Can I help you?" I asked. "Can you ask?" she said, almost scornfully. "I should consider it a privilege." "Indeed!" She laughed. "Miss Dixon." I began, "we have known each other a long while " "But little, it seems," she interrupted. "It may be." I retorted, quickly, "that I know little of you. but I have loved you for all I am worth." "Really!" she said, sarcastic! lly. "I do not understand," I stammered. "Why do you speak like that?" "Ah, why? Of course I have no right." "Miss Dixon Gertrude," I burst out. "Sir!" she said, sharply. I waited to hear no more, and looked at her face, where a tear lingered on her eyelids. "I had thought," she said, "that there was one man who was truthful and honest. I had ah! but what does it matter?" Her lip trembled. I caught her hand In mine, but she quickly withdrew it. "Gertrude!" I whispered. "And you can still pretend," she said, haughtily, "that you care for me?" "On my honor." "Your honor!" she laughed. "I like that. Ah! And I believed in you." She did really care for me, then. I was at her side in an instant. "No, sir." She waved me away. "You may keep your honor. Perhaps you can reconcile it with this," and she handed me a small packet. "For me?" I muttered. "I put the paper around them," she said. She stood looking at me while I undid the packet, which contained the photo graph of a pretty girl and several let ters. "I dnn't understand why you have given these to me." I said, at last. "No?" she queried. "I didn't expect ycu would." "Then why " , "Why have I done so?" : ' . "Yes." "I admit it was foolish." she said. "I suppose I could hardly expect you to ac cept them honestly." "Accept them?" They are not mine. I know nothing about them." "Ha!" she laughed. "I knew you would say that." I waited, wondering. "After all. I can't say your taste Is so very bad," she continued. "What do you mean?" "You appear to be dense. But It's rather a good photo." "But." I started, "I assure you " "I should think Ehe has fair hair, hasn't she?" I began to be slightly nettled, and did not answer. "And you always said you liked black best," she continued. "I said what I meant," I answered, somewhat surlily. "But your opinion has changedsince?" "Maybe." Why should I not retort? I could not be more in the dark than I already was. "Isn't her nose somewhat retrousse?" she asked. "I think it adds piquancy to the face, don't you?" "Oh. I don't doubt you are right," she said, almost sneeringly. "There's just a suspicion of a dimple, too." I suggested, looking well at the photo. "Really!" "It is a good addition to pleasant features, don't you think?" "I really could not offer my judg ment against yours," she said, curtly. But as I seemed to have nothing to lose, I determined to get my own back. "And she has bright, lively eyes?" "You know best," she retorted. "Of course," I laughed, "I know best. I had quite forgotten that." She bridled somewhat. "You apparently And the subject humorous?" "Yes. Isn't it meant to be?" "Perhaps it doesn't suggest itself to you that your present conduct is the reverse of gentlemanly?" "X must say," I admitted, "I am some what in doubt as to a good i many things." "I'm glad you admit something." "For example," I continued, "the meaning of your attack on me." "Are you going to continue to flos a dead horse?" "My density must be my excuse." "Well," she said, "I must give . you credit fur playing the game so well." '"You are generous," 1 smiled, cynical ly. "But you have still something to learn in the technique." "Yes?" '"A good actor is liable to cut a poor figure if the stage effects go against him." "I suppose so." She turned as if to leave me. ; "By the way," she added, "I must apologize for opening your bag." "My bag?" "You begin to see now, perhaps?" I nodded a negative. "Well," she said, "I didn't think it of you. It was a mistake, though, to put them right on top." "Do you mean," I said, the facts sud denly bursting upon me, "that you found this photograph, with the letters, in my bag?" "Your intelligence is marvelous," she replied. " But how ?" I started. "How did I happen to open your bag? It was put in my room by mistake, I suppose." "X see," I said, lamely. "It's bad having two bags . exactly alike. I had opened yours before I no ticed your initials." f "And you found these things inside?" I asked again. "Yes, yes, a hundred times," she said angrily. "On my honor I know nothing about them. I have never seen the lady whom this photograph represents." "You still persist?" she asked. , "I speak the truth." "Then there is no mc-e to be said. You will consider our acquaintance at an end." She turned to go as Phil approached. He looked at us and lifted his eye brows. ' "Do I intrude?" he asked. "I'm just going," said Miss Dixon, and, turning to me, "Will you see that lny bag is sent to my room?" "Isn't it there?" asked Phil. "There has been a mistake," I said. "Miss Dixon has opened my bag instead of her own." "Oh!" he said. "Did you " and he stopped. "What's the matter1"' I asked. "I slipped a photograph inside at the station," he rep Hod. "I found your bag was unlocked, and " "But why did you put it there?" I said quickly. "Veil," he smiled, has to do something 'a finger of Fate to justify its ex- istence. Miss Dixon turned to him sharply. "So ycu," she said, "sent the wrong bag to my room?" He bowed, smiling. "A 'finger of Fate!" he repeated. "I hate you," she said, and went. He turned to me. "Weil, aren't you going to thank me, old man?" he asked. "Thank you?" I ejaculated. "It seems to me a dirty trick." "Don't be a fool, Hal," he laughed. "Don't you see the mere fact of hor bringing you the photo, shows she cares for you?" "I knew that before," I retorted. "And now?" Well, that tear, the quivering lips and our recent conversation had told the'r tale, and I did not answer for I was more than sure. . "She hates you," I said. ; "She always did," he laughed. "And you think you have helped me?" "I know you're not a fool, Hal." "Well," I said, "I'll go and see about the bag." "You may keep the photo," he called after me. I did, till the next day, when I burn it before Gertrude. "I thought," she said, "that it could scarcely belong to you." She had said something else before, so I did not suggest that her manner on the previous day had belied her. "And what about Phil?" I murmured. "I don't know," she queried. "I sup pose we must bow before Fate." "And it was only a finger?" I suggest ed. "But it has done a lot," she whispered. And I agreed. l-riA. ' t 'v An Excellent Combination. The pleasant method and beneficial effects of the well known remedy, Bteup of Figs, manufactured by the California Fig Syrup Co., illustrate the value of obtaining1 the liquid laxa tive principles of plants known to be medicinally laxative and presenting them in the form most refreshing- to the taste and acceptable to the system. It is the one perfect strengthening- laxa tive, cleansing-the system effectually, dispelling' colds, headaches and fevers gently yet promptly and enabling- one to overcome habitual constipation per manently. Its perfect freedom from every objectionable quality arid sub stance, and its acting-on the kidneys, liver and bowels, without weakening or irritating them, make it the ideal laxative. In the process of manufacturing- figs are used, as they are pleasant to the taste, but the medicinal qualities of the remedy are obtained from senna and other aromatic plants, by a method known to the California Fis Strcp Co. only.
