"TO never forget what you hare done for me tonight." Jane said earnestly. "And we'll go on being: friends?" he pleaded. "We shall! I promise! And you must tell me more about Peggy. I like to believe there is always?one." Jane mused. "That's why I should feel so badly if Joe or Hal felt about you th* way I did about Peggy." he explained. "And you really didn't care for yourself?" Jane asked. She could not forget that Teddy had pro tested he worshipped the ground ?he walked upon. "I thought I wanted to forget. Pve tried all summer to make a new ideal of you! But?" ?'I failed you," Jane sighed guiltily. "I'm rather glad the whole thing's settled." he said in a low tone. "I can go back to old mem ories anyway. I'll get her picture out of the trunk tonight. I hid her away, you know?trying to forget." "Teddy boy!" Jane cried sym pathetically and squeezed his hand warmly. "I wonder If anybody will ever love me that way." Jane sighed. "You can never tell. It may be Joe or Hal?I hope not! But whoever It Is?be square with yourself and hira!" "I think you've made me see things right. Teddy." Jane acknowl edged. All the way up the shore ahf? was wondering whether Mr. Roberts could care that way. and how he woold act when she ar rived in New York! r'ould he be the one for her? "God's will be done," her mother had said. As Jane fell asleep that night she thought of the romance of Teddy's young love. Somehow she couldn't feel that marrying a man as old as Mr. Roberts could be God's will?and certainly not what the stars had been winking at her all evening! The next day Jane prepared to leave for New York. The other men tried to propose to her. One of them was Hen derson. the rich bachelor who owned the hotel. He was very fat and funny, but Jane profited from her talk with Teddy and did not chaff him. The other man was a poet?very stricken with sonnets? who lived in the Dill Pickle quar ter. Jane thought him very in teresting. but too pale. When the train pulled off for New York. Jane's heart was still fickle but free! "I wondtr how Hattie is getting on." Mrs. Richards mused. "We must have her over for dinner right away." "I think she will marry Mr. Car ruthers." Jane ventured. "Impossible." her mother laughed. "Hattie is such a tomboy." "But she knows what she wants, and she has set her heart on him. "It's absurd' She's not in his sphere." That makes no difference, moth er If she loves him. and It's the real thing, she can make herself Into the sort of girl that would be Jn his sphere. Love works mira cles!" ^*But. my dear!" Hattie has the advantage of Knowing what she wants. That's where other girls fail, and their chances slip by." Jane sighed.

"How about those gallant swains you left behind?" her mother smiled "Someone told me a gossipy tale of having seen you on the beach? kissing Teddy! Are you keeping a secret from your old mother, dear?" Jane could tell that she would be pleased to have her admit that she was in love and perhaps engaged to Teddy, but all she said was: "How silly." "It was Mrs. Blanchard!" her mother said positively. "She In sists she saw it with her own eyes.' "It's Just like that old gossip!' Jane said crossly. and turned to look out" of the window. Her mother watched Jane out of the corner of her eye. She wsfc> unconvinced. Jane knew that sht would be in for trouble, if 1 mother persisted in the idea of get ting her married. "I really couldn't marry?because I'm too interested in my work," she tried to say casually. "Work should be a means?not an end." Mrs. Richards argued with that aristocratic shrug that always annoyed Jane. She was the sort that liked to call a salary an al lowance. Tears were in Jane's eye* and she felt out of joint with the whole world. Her own little philosophy had sufficed up to now. "He who finds his work finds happiness." Jane had believed that, and had been successful on the strength of it. Even now as she repeated the words, the inspiration came to write another little story. She took out pad and pencil. The wraith of Teddy's romance. Jane entitled It "The One." and wrote it with all her heart and soul. Even when her mother in sisted they go into the diner for supper Jane clung to pad and pen 1 cil and stole time, between courses to add paragraphs. The story burned in her brain and she felt the throb of it In her young heart. It was real! Peggy and Teddy! It was the first real thing Jane had ever writteji, and ?he knew that it had?feeling. Jane's cheeks were flushed with excitement as she scribbled down another page that painted ther dream of love so richly. She was carried away with it! Then the train gave a sudden lurch and the waiter spilled a soup tureen over the table. The passionate effusion was soaked in clam chowder! It was disillusioning. "I beg your pardon, miss!" the gentleman of color apologised. Jane tried to wipe oft the paper and fan it dry from the greasy soup. "Throw It away, why don't you?" her mother asked, rather annoyed. "It's the best thing I ever wrote," Jane complained. "I wish you wouldn't write so much, it makes you nervous." she sighed rather peevishly, and then a young man across the way handed Jane a tablet of paper, say ing with an amused smile: "Won't you accept this paper? It's a shame to douse your inspira tion that way." he laughed.
