He remarked In a semi-humorous vein that he "could use about a peck of spectacles.' That his appeal went home to many is evidenced by a communication Just received from Mr. Chapman, announcing that up to June 26 three and a half bushels of specta cles hsd reached Anvik from 153 frleuds.

XKOMXS. All the travel he had Indulged In, all ths hard work, all the business, absorption snd worry, sll ths great affairs of life which hsd occupied his time during the strenuous years fol lowing his graduation from college, had not erased from hla mind and heart the memory of dainty care-free Laura Tolman, his old sweetheart of the college days. He hsd suspected this before he re turned to the old scenes; now that he was here the conviction csms to him with crushing force. Every shaded walk, every leafy retreat, every part of the old college build-, lngs snd the campus seemed to be, alive with her presence. As he walked the old familiar paths he! seemed to hear the mualc of her girl-, lsh voice snd to catch the very aroma of her sweet presence. With s gross he admitted It he hsd failed utterly In the task he hsd set himself out to perform. He had gone away that day when her en gageroent to Bently was snnounced determined to forget her. The strug gle thst afternoon had been a hard one, snd many times he hsd thought of the river as the most peaceful hsven he could find. Finally his pride had triumphed, and, set ting his teeth with that peculiar grit ty motion the fellows on the grid Iron knew so well, he had said to himself: "Claude Belknap, brace up. Where Is the spirit of your forebears. Are you to let a chit of a girl ruin your life especially a girl who throws you over for s fellow who is only after her money?" And so he had gone bravely swsy with s song on his lips, but wltn gloom in his heart He bad worked hard, snd not without success. The very whole-hesrtedness with which he threw himself Into his work snd which wss born of his desire to so occupy himself thst he would forget the laughing face snd saucy eyes of his college sweetheart drove him on to success. He had taken up s stren uous profession, snd it had carried him to many climes and into much danger. In the stress snd heat of the bat tle with fortune he had flattered him- belt that the old wound had healed, and finding himself In the near vicin Ity of the old college town, he had rashly decided to revisit the old scenes. Then like the rush of the tide came the realization that he ever would love the sweetheart of his youth, wherever she was snd what ever her condition or relationship. The realisation frightened him when the thought flashed across his mind that she was the wife of another, Heartsick with his own reflections. he sought to escape them by calling on Miss Carrie Sample, who still lived In the -town, snd who hsd been s great chum in the old days. He was given so warm a welcome ss to make him forget for the moment the bitter pain in his heart The conver sation naturally reverted to the old college days and the old boys and girls. Belknap had been abroad so long snd so occupied with business that he bad lost track of them to considerable extent but Miss Sam ple, having lived sll tbe years under the very esves of the old college, and being a gossipy piece, knew where nearly all the old classmates were, who they married, how they were prospering, and all the other details which so delight the feminine heart. The conversation was animated and extended, and Belknap for the time being forgot hla heartache under the magic of this clever snd friendly lit tle woman. . It wss when she dragged forth from a sacred drawer a bundle of old class pnotogrspns snd tnat he was most painfully recalled to his great sorrow. "Oh, but do you remember this pic nic we hsd," she exclaimed, shoving a photograph in front of his very nose. Did he remember? The blood rushed back into his heart st the memory unUl he thought he would faint It was a snapshot of s group st s picnic. Ths girls adorned with the boys' hats, snd the boys wearing the feminine millinery. It wss just outside sa spple orchard surrounded by a high stone fence, over which but kt a perilous height hung a bough of luscious fruit In the very cen ter of ths picture was Belknap, and perched audaciously upon his shoul der wss Laura Tolman, supported by his strong snd steady arm picking the apples snd throwing them down to the laughing comrades below. Did he remember that picnic? It was the dsy when, maddened by the contact with her dainty .self,' he had poured forth his love snd then, frightened st his own audacity, had stammered and failed to ask the vital question. Ths photograph brought back all ths memories of the afternoon, and aroused all his latent passion. As he gased at it he felt the full tide of his passion sweep through him until It seemed that he must burst Miss Sample chattered on. We all thought you were awfully sweet, on Laura Tolmaa,' she said. -Really, we did. Ia fact, the whole class thought it was a match, and was all fixed ap. It was perfectly par alysing when, after commencement yos pi unfed Into business, and she got engaged to that Bently fellow." To cant always Judge about these college affairs," he replied, with at Has assumption of Indifference. "By th way, whatever became of Miss Tolmaa or Mrs. Bently 7" rch, dear, didnt yos heeuT aha re- gSsd, with a shriek of Isug&ter.
