On an Inclined

Henry Carroll's plight was n perplex
ing one. It drove tho young lawyer in
to n dogged' determination to get the
fiirl In spite of herself. He hud hud a
year of the ups and downs of a court
ship such ns only Helen Ilcnton could
hnvo tnndo so torturing, and yet sweet
ened by the hope of ultimate success.
The worst of It was that ho really be
lieved that she loved hltn, though he
had no proof beyond tho fact that she
refused other men right and left, was
suspiciously sweet to the oilier girls to
whom he paid the least attention and
treated him In a cavalier fashion that
indicutcd that she considered him her
When he asked, ns he did nil too
often, "Nell, do you love at nil?" she
would answer sweetly, "Do I net as if
He was obliged to admit that she did
not Then she continued lo laugh nt
his courting nnd to turn htm down
whenever she so chose.
Ono pleasant August afternoon ho
sauntered to her home nnd invited her
to go golfing. She loved golurg. He
found her under the trees In n ham
mock in n dress of foamy blue rallies,
with a cool blue cushion under her
dark littlo head.
"Too hot," she answered, "and I'm
too lazy. Besides, I wnnt to finish my
book." She picked up her novel, leav
ing blm to infer that he could take him
self off. He did as far ns the gate
then he turned nnd walked back to her.
"Helen," he said slowly, "do you In
tend ever to marry me or not?" She
looked nt him with nppnrcnt coolness;
something flickered to her eyes, then
"I Intend not to," she replied.
"Do you love me? Docs my love mean
nothing to you?"
"Make your own Inferences, Henry
Carroll. Tell mo why I should marry
nt nil. I nm happy ns I nm. Why
should I wnnt n mnn? Unless," she
spoko meaningly, "I could find ono who
could make me think I wanted him."
"Nell," he said sternly, "do you realize
whut you nro throwing away?"
"A love!1' she interrupted. "A chance
to wear the title of 'Mrs; to live in
one plnce always; to say 'Yes, dear,'
nnd 'No, dear;' to nudlt the household
bills; to ronko nnd receive cnlls; to"
"To be loved nnd protected nlwnys;
to be mndo happy, for I can make you
hnppy. Now you are simply Idle. Nell,
don't you ever look nhead to the time
when your parents may leave you,
when you even you will be no longer
young? Don't you see that you need
mo almost ns .much as I need you?
Aren't you afraid of old nge, of not be
ing loved? Aren't you afraid of any
thing, girl?" She picked nt her sleeve,
then lifted serious dark eyes to his own
"I am afraid of one thing. I"
"What is it, sweethenrt?" She
Hprung from the hammock and ran Into
the hull; then bug thrust out her head
and called, "I'm awfully afraid of the
dark!'' And he heard tho sound of re
Thereupon Henry Carroll betook him
self and his wruth to tho links, where
he pluyed very bad golf and flirted ex
cellently with pretty Polly Cummins.
Toward sunset, as ho was waiting to
put her into her dashing little trap, he
hazarded n question:
"Miss Polly, if you wcro a mun nnd
wanted n girl, nnd she kept you dan
gling, but wouldn't hnvo you, whnt
would you do?" Polly's' eyes danced.
Shu know Nell Benton's ways.
"Does she care?"
"I think so, but sho won't own up.
She only torments me. What would
"You big, splendid, helpless thing I"
sho laughed. "Why, muko her' have
you I There's nothing women like like
being made to do things by tho right
man. . Get her where sho can't help
herself and make her promise to do ns
you wish." Still laughing, tho girl
Carroll walked gloomily along the riv
er rond, turning over Polly's advice.
He looked up to see a canoe coming
swiftly upstream. The girl handled
the puddle with easy skill. As she
came closer ho gasped with anger. It
was Null in her red waist the ono bo
liked. It was too hot to golf with him,
but Just right for a laborious upstream
puddle by herself, no resolved to muko
her sorry before sho got home.
Keeping carefully out of sight among
the 'trees and bushes, ho followed tho
river's courso till Nell landed, drawing
tho canoo up on shore. Then sho sat
down on the grass with her book. Aft
er whut seemed an nge sho arose and
tried vnlnly to catch tho lowest limb of
the tree nbovo her. Then she brought
up n half dozen old boards lying near.
With ruoro skill than Carroll thought
women possessed in matters mechan
ical she built n rough sort of lncllno
pluno reaching halfway up tho tree
trunk. Then she tried to climb up, but
her fect slipped. After a moment's
hesitation sho took off her little oxfords
nnd then her stockings, which she stuff
ed into the shoes. In her bare feet
she climbed easily up her platform and
into tbo tree. Sho disposed herself
carefully upon n large, nlmost horizon
tal limb, with her back to tho trunk,
nnd aguin attacked the novel.
The sun was sinking, and It began
to grow cool. Carroll stole quietly
nwuy av rods and then eurao strut
lag noisily buck, whistling
and looktug straight nhead of him la
groining unconsciousness of anything

but the distant landscape, lid saun
tered nonchalantly under tlie tree, ap
parently not seeing Nell's scaffolding.
Then he sat leisurely down upon the
grass and her shoes. He pulled oiit
bin pipe, lit It and puffed serenely,
while the evening deepened into twi
light and then Into soft nnd tildlsttn
Meanwhile Helen sat breathless, with
her bare feet pulled up beneath her
thort skirt, In Imminent danger of fall
ing If sho madu the slightest move
ment. She thought ho had not seen
her and would go away soon.
It had been too daik to read for
some time, and It seemed ages before
he rose. Helen breathed n sigh of re
lief, and then, as ho thought better of
It and lay down again, sho realized
bow very dark It was nnd Unit she
was afraid to bo left nlonc. Sho set
her teeth nnd resolved to conquer her
terror. Not for worlds would bIio have
Ul nt catch her In her present plight,
especially nfter her bnd treatment of
him that very afternoon. Shu' regret
ted tho folly of having told him sho
wit nfrnld of tho dark nud only hoped
ho took It for n joke. If ho found
her hero he would do something to
gut even, nud, besides, she know that
In her present softened mood sho al
most wanted to stop teasing him and
let him sweep her into tho strong,
sweet current of his love. Nervous at
the- thought, she dropped her book. On
its way to the gross It knocked Car
roll's hat from his head and his plpo
from his mouth.
"Hello!" he exclaimed as if to him
self nnd In nppnrent surprise. "A book
descending like the gentlo rain from
hen rent Bertha M. Clay tool A girl
who would wear such ridiculous little
shoes" here' ho picked up and whim
sically examined her oxfords "would
bo Just the sort of girl who reads
Bertha Clay. Guess I'll take 'em homo
nnd advertise 'em." Ho put them In
his coat pocket
"Sho was kind enough to lcavo mo
her canoo too. Guess I'll go."
Nell came near screaming after him.
Her canoe! How dared he! Sho coukl
never walk alone, and In her baro feet,
along that horrible, lonely river road.
With a gasp of terror she sow him
actually launch tho littlo shell, but
when ho leaped in nnd began to push
off nil the terror of the night seemed
to descend bodily upon her. Like n
Ilnsh sho determined to bravo out the
"Henry! nenry Carroll! Bring back
my boat this minute!"
"Hello!" ho returned, paddling to
shore again. "Who's there, I should like
"Where are you? Walt till I get this
thing ashore." He looped out. "Where
In the world aro you, Nell?"
"In tho tree," sho called carelessly.
"Where did you think I was?" ,
"At home, naturally, after what you
said this afternoon.'
"I changed my mind. Hand mo my
shoes, please," sho said sweetly, tuck
ing her toes farther up under her
"Whnt for?" he demanded., P.,
"So put on, so I can go homcVfpi!'
"I don't sep It that way. 'Tlur shoes'
are in my pocket; you saw mo put them
there. I saw you climb up them nnd
waited to watch you trap yourself.
You'vo had mo up a trco a year now;
now I've got you up one. Guess I'll
keep you there till you promise better
"Oh, never mind! I can como down
without shoes. You will pleaso gcCfcway
now. Only don't tako my boat"! Sho
made a motion as If to swing herself
"Well," ho commanded, "ono move
ment nnd I'll kick down this llttlb Ja
cob's ladder of yours nnd go home,
shoes, stockings, bont nnd nil. It'4 my
innings. You have played with mo long
enough. Nell, do you lovo mo?" ,
"I couldn't lovo nny ono but a gen
tleman," she answered sweetly. '
"We'll waive that point Do you lovo
mo?" Ho waited, theu went on ln'u

It is astonishing how many things
can happen out of doors in four min
utes. The moon camo up over tho bills;
a quick breeze stirred everything 'into
motion; tho birds waked and twittered.
Nell's blood surged hotly to her checks,
and the tide of her unacknowledged
love swelled to her lips. Still sho was
hnrdly ready to give up. nenry struck
a match for another look nt his wntcb.
"Threo minutes gone! Nell, J love
you. There Is Just nnothcr minute. I
shall never nsk you again. Dear" ho
throw his cap to tho ground nnd reach
ed his arms up to her "let mccomo
and tako you, sweetheart!" Tho moon
silvered his fair faco and softened the
outlines of tho rugged, haudsomo faco
upturned to her. In a heart much may
happen in a minute. Nell's went out to
tho man below her. Sho stretched a
hand down toward him.
"Come, then," eho whispered. Ho
heard. IIo leaped to her Inclined plane,
lifted her in his arms and swung her to
"Do you lovo mo?" ho nsked ns be
still held her close.
"Yes. Stop thntl But I'd tovo you
more if you'd give mo my shoes and go
nwny while I put them on."
"I will on ono condition thnt you
kiss mo again." Sho regarded him de
murely. "I suppose," sbo said slowly, "that I
am hardly in a position to refuse."
