ABSENTMINDED MISS AMY. The Dress She Wore Was Appropriate, After All. By LOUISE J. STRONG "There are worse things than being an old maid." Miss Amy Colver said serenely. "Oh. Miss Amy?I didn't mean?1 never think of you as being tout!" the girl stammered. "She isn't such a very old maid," Mrs. Wrltlgely smiled. "And she saya truly there are worse things?such aa having a blind husband on your hand--, which would have been her fate If she'd married Hcury Scott, as she came near doing once." "She wouldn't think so if she were his wife: She'd love him all the moro for the affliction. I know I should. If Willie"? Blushing Hotly. Elsie ran from the re*otn. Mrs. Wridgely laughed, but with a k.en glance at her sister, who murmur? ed something about the beat, fanning vigorously. Theu presently she asked, "Hid you say that Henry Scott was blind?" "That's what Kate wrote. The doc? tors think bis eyes were ruined, and no wonder, running into tbat fire so. Inflammation set In. He may never see again. It's a good thing he has no family. lie's pretty well off, but he'll need all he's got. He'll never work again, and his business will soon go to rulu with hired help managing it." Amy said nothing. Mrs. Wridgely regarded her preoccupied face with a e'lglit frown, then closed the subject by remar\lng briskly: "Well, fortunately, Henry Scott ls nothing to us. 1 ran over to see what you're going to wear to the reception. Amy." "The same as usual, I suppose, if 1 go." "If you go!" Mrs. Wrldgely almost shrieked. "When you know the affair ls complimentary to you! Of course you'll go! And you must wear ymir cream silk. I'll send Ruth to dress you. Anel. Amy. I want to take the waist and have the sleeves sborteued. You have such pretty arms. I'll run up and get lt "Judge Hale and wife will be there," she resumed, returning to the porch with the waist. "Be where?" Amy questioned vague ly. "Well, If you aren't enough to? Be at the reception, of course, and Sena tor Ellsworth, too; he got back this morning. Mrs. Reeel was so afraid they would not be here. 1 think I'll dri*ss early and come over myself. Amy, or like as nut you'll appear In thal eeerlasting black! elf course you ure full of your new book, but you owe something to your friends. Do put lt out of your mind for this even lng. I'll be over early." "I'm glad it's out about Henry Scott," Mrs. Wrtilgoly coiiimiiii**d wills herself. "I've been some afraid of the effect on her. but I guess she's for gotten thnt old affair, nud I mentioned the senator on purpose to turn her thoughts. I wish 1 dare speak plain ly to her about Senator Ellsworth. If ] she were only a little more like ot hei folks! But then, I suppose, he would uot tlnd her so attractive." Mrs. Wrldgely had constituted her self tlrst aid to Senator Ellsworth a few months befeire. wheu chance en obied her to extract a letter from Amy's mail which was plainly from Henry Se*ott. She felt Justitied. Amy would be spared mental disturbance, and. anyway, the letter was probably only a congratulatory note on the suc? cess of her book, such as she received constantly. Mrs. Wridgely's hopes con cernlug the senator were new then, and the brilliancy of the possible posl tion for ber sister Amy excused any Hiing. Amy had been provokingly unappre fin ti ve of this advantageous opi?ortu nity. as she had been of many others, which was perhaps to be expected of pe?ople who wrote books. Amy sat alone* pondering over her lover's peculiar silence. Was it due to Jealousy e.f her success? Site had gli> rltled lu bis magnificent conduct when the papers had told of lils plunging again and again Into the burning wre*ck. rescuing women and children, mu! to her love, that folly aud ea traiiKeme'lit could uot kill, was adeied hero worship. She sMal sat silent un? der the news *>f his calamity with a control that reassured her sister, but now her fan fell from her grasp, a broken heap. "Blind! Bllud!" she moaned Tbe dark eyes that hud looked Into her heart with a power tbat no oilier could ever attain darkened forever. Her imagination vividly pictured what lt would mean to him. so active, so alive to tbe world and Its needs suddenly imprisoned lu darkness, hope less darkness, dependent upou others, limited to the companionship of hired attendants and his decrepit auut. his ?ole relative. At least she might write bim a few sympathetic lines, the fact that abe had but now learned of his terrible loss being explanation and Justification of her former seemingly heartless Indif? ference. In the privacy of ber chant ber she gave rein to her emotions, presduclng that which she hastily re duced to scraps for the wastebasket. Recalling tbat otber eye* now scan ned his letters, she wrote and dlscrird ed page ofter page, finding each short epistle more ililli, i.'t of composition. In tbe midst of her perplexity a maid brought la thc remodeled garment and nn Imperative scrawl from Mrs. Wrldgely to the effect that the articlo he tried on immediately and. If not satisfactory, returned for further al? teration. Amy dismissed the maid and donned the garment, her mind turning sen? tences over and over still, striving to express only the proper amount of in? terest. Then, as she absently arranged ribbons and lace, there came the firm conviction that to write was Impossi? ble; that she must see bim as soon as distance would allow. It would not bave happened bad Amy been properly chaperoned and companioned iDStead of maintaining the Independence which Mrs. Wrldgely often uud uselessly deplored. The gen? erously salaried and loyal servants ouly looked their astonishment when, wearing the elbow sleeved bodice of her elegant reception gown, a black lace fichu nnd plain traveling hat. ??liss Amy announced that she was go? ing on a journey.

With a painfully beating heart she stole away to the summer house, hoping there to regain self con? trol before ringing the bell. As she entered a voice, speaking from the gloom, startled her. "Are you back so soon, auntie?" She would have run away, but a sud? den we..km?ss at sight of him, a heavy shade over his bandaged eyes, made her stumble to the bench beside him He put out n proping baud as If sens? ing something unusual.
