THE ARIZONA REPUBLICAN: SUNDAY MORNING, SEPTEMBER " 23, 18 4. '
BROWN DOG. .vatch and wait, lit the door. i ami a boyish call. o;r to come once more. ' follow, through tield and hollow. Iver his leet may roam. 1 to stray, if he leads the way, fever he is, is home. Pa never hear the whistle clear, the sound of the boyish call. je scam Tier cf feet all bare and fleet ffflSwn thrown the shadowy hall; Though long you wait at door and gate For your pay-fellow of old, "With his eyes so blue and his heart so true. And his hair like the sunshine's gold. Tis a year and a day since he went away To a country beyond our ken. And those who pro that way, we know, Never come back again. Still early and late you watch and wait. Little brown dog at the door, - But the voice is still, and watch as you will, Your master comes no more. -Dorothy Deane, in Youth's Companion. A PEOSELYTE. A Well-Taught Lesson He Never Expected to Learn. Mr. Aubrey Everdene looked out upon Sackville street and yawned. Only an instant before he had written "finis" to an article with a dash of the pen across the last sheet, and now the MS. lay ready for the post among the debris of printer's proofs, new novels awaiting review, etc., with which the isrriting table was strewn. One of the best-known literateurs in London, and a brilliant conversation alist, his tongue could be as scathing as his pen, and it was said of him, with regard to the latter weapon of war fare, that in half a dozen polished sen tiences he could do more towards damn ing a book than any two of his com peers. A big, loosely-made man, Mr. Everdene, with shrewd gray eyes and the pessimism of a modern. Studying his face as he lounged by the window, hit hands in the pockets of his smok ing jacket, one could see that he had a his other characteristics and under stood the interest his personality aroused. Presently a servant brought him a visiting card on a salver. "The lady would be obliged if you would grant her an interview, sir." "Lady l!ilyard,"muttered Everdene, reading the inscription. "I can"t re call the name. Bother the woman, wbat does she want? However ask her to come up, Blake." When she entered, a fair, elegant woman of perhaps five-arid twenty, in an irreproachable Parision toilet, he was still more convinced that he had Dot the privilege of her acquaintance. "Mr. Aubrey Everdene?" she que ried. Mr. Everdene bowed. "l"ray take a seat, madam. " "No," she said. "I have come to quarrel witn you, ana i aon t sit down in the houses of my enemies!" "To quarrel with me!" His eye brows went up. The tnougtit came to him that his visitor was not in her right mind. "Yes. Ferhaps I had better explain myself at once. I am the author of 'f ashion and Footlights!'" Mr. Everdene, standing perforce be c?"ce she would, pulled his mustache, while the fair stranger tapped her No. 3 shoe on the carpet with impatience. Red loolred pitchforks and daggers. " 'Fashion and Footlights,' " he re flected aloud. " 'Fashion and Foot tights.' 11a!" Comprehension stole over his face, and with it a slight amusement. He fished among a pile of volumes and brought out three bound with an ele gance destined to win the hearts of suburban circulating libraries. "H it is. I reviewed it in the Centurion, didn't I?" "No," she said, "you hanged and quartered it!" . "X am sorry! May I ask how you found out that I was the culprit?" "Oh, by accident. It's a long story, and unimportant, since you djn't de ny the imputation. Now, Mr. Ever dene, I know it is very impertinent 'of me, a stranger, to come to your pri vate address and worry you. ' I am do ing a very unusual thing, I am afraid, Rud llrz. Grundy would be horrified, lint 'fools rush in,' you know, and widows are privileged! You must have a little patience with me, because " for the first time her lips relaxed, and she smiled a smile that was sweetness itself "well, just because I'm a wom an and you're a gentleman! Acknow ledge the truth, now, on your honor. Don't you think you were unnecessa rily harsh to my poor little literary effort?" "No," he said, bluntly. "I always give my true opinion of things, and I consider your book had many faults." If she had been a man he would have said: "I thought it was excessively bad," with the brusqueness of convic tion, and probably declined to discuss the matter. But to a lady it was im possible to be rude. He regarded her absurdly unconventional presence with a tolerant kindliness. "Of course, I admit that there are faults, but upon one or two points in your criticism, I cannot agree with you. I should very much like to dis euss them with you. May I?" "Certainly." His mouth was twitch ing under his heavy mustache. "But don't you think, pending the verdict, that you had. better sit down? You will be fatigued. If you'll permit me to wheel this armchair nearer the fire for you so!" Having carefully arranged it so that she should face the light, he seated himself opposite to her the A. B. C. of diplomacy, but she did not appear to notice it. She was drawing arabesques on the carpet with the point of her ivory-handled umbrella. "I should very much like to know," she said, "what you think of me for coming here!" "I think you are plucky yes, and recklessly unconventional." "Candid, at any rajte! And I like that" She looked up. "Now for the first indictment on the list, Mr. Ever dene! You accuse me of improbabil ity. I deny it." His manner bordered upon pre-occu-pation. In truth he was thinking what wonderful lashes she had, and how becoming a flush of excitement could be to a clear, pale skin. "You assert," she continned warm ly, "that it is ridiculous to suppose that a man and woman of the world could fall in love at first sight, as I make .my hero and heorine do, and that st&h proceedings are limited to boys and girls in their teens, and the pages of penny fiction. Lshovld have thought that Mr. Aubrey Everdene would have shown wider sympathies." "Then you really, believe , Lady Hil yard, that adult, sensible people do conceive such abrupt attachments? "I am convinced that it happens fre quently. " "Oh, come, not frequently?" "Well sometimes," she amended. "I could give you a dozen instances." He lacked the heart to argue with her. It would have been like break ing a butterfly on a wheel. And after all there might be more sentiment in fin-de siecle humanity than he thought; women have wonderful intuition in these matters. "Well, suppose we let that slide for the moment and proceed to indictment number two. What other phrase of mine do you take exception to?" "You said that I had not the remot est idea of construction, and that 'Fashion and Footlights' was evident ly a specimen of that objectionable class of fiction which you regretted to see was growing so prevalent the am ateur novel, born of vanity and a lack of wholesome occupation." Her voice died away with a tremor. He had only stated the truth, but the fact did not prevent the speechless Mr. Everdene from feeling as if he had committed a particularly brutal mur der and the ghost of the victim had come to arraign him before all the people whose opinions he valued most. "I I cried," she murmured, pathet ically. Her lips quivered. Beads of perspira tion rose to the man's forehead "Good heavens, if I had only guessed how much 1 should hurt you! It was harsh, monstrous. No doubt I was in a bad temper, and your unfortunate book was the first thing that afforded me an opportunity to vent my spleen." Lady Ililyard applied six square inches of cambric and lace to the cor ner of an eyelid. "If you'll only believe me, my dear Lady Ililyard, when I tell you that I'm sorrier than I can say." "Then you acknowledge that you were needlessly cruel?" "I was brutal." He would have com mitted blacker perjury as she wiped that tear away. "And that I had just cause for in dignation?" "You were perfectly right." A smile broke like April sunshine over her face. "In that case I suppose I must for give you." He was ridiculously grateful. He heaved a sigh of relief and hesitated with his hand on the button of the electric bell. "Lady Hilyard, you know the Arab custom of taking salt with one's friends? As a token of good-will, per mit me to give you the prosaic English equivalent of a cup of tea." t The offer was tempting, the weather was hot and she had talked a great deal. She yielded. When the refresh ment came, accompanied by wonder ful sweetmeats from Bond street round the corner, she asked permission to pour it out for him, with a winning graciousness which charmed him. It afforded him an odd sense of pleasure, too, to see her white fingers moving about the china. He was unaccustomed to the presence of women in his home. With the Japanese table between them they chatted for awhile, and then the clock on the mantelpiece struck six. She rose with a pretty gesture of dismay, like a second Cinderella. "Do you know, Mr. Everdene, that I have been here a whole hour wasting your valuable time?" "I thought it had been ten minutes," he answered, "and the pleasantest of my life." "Very pretty!" she said, blushing faintly. "And, in return for it, let me tell you that my address is on my card and that my 'day' is Thursday. Also, I must thank you very heartily for your kindness and courtesy to an im pertinent intruder, very few men would have been so considerate." "Please don't thank me; it is I who owe you a debt of gratitude. You have taught me something I never expected to learn." "What?" "That the conduct of your hero and heroine was not improbable at all." Their eyes met the woman's drooped, self-conscious, pleased. "You really mean that?" "On my soul I do." The most delicious softness was in her voice: - "It makes 'me so proud and happy to think i nave convinced you." There was a silence. She smoothed a wrinkle in her suede glove. He twisted a button on his coat. Then she aroused herself with a little laugh and extended her hand. "Well, good-by, Mr. Everdene, and, once more, thank you." He pressed her fingers ever so lightly her proselyte. "Not 'good-by,'" he murmured. "Au revoir." Black and White. Honools. Marlborough School for Young Ladies, 865 W. 23rd. St.. Los Angeles.
