(Copyrighted by The Daily Story Pub. Co.) "You are a peculiar woman," Mr. Deter* •aid, reflectively. His host«»» leaned for ward and placed a little scarlet devil ash receiver in close proximity to his cigar, then twisted her lithe body comfortably among the cushions of a long, low chair that was lier especial weakness. "You were saying?" »he murmured, laz ily. "Oh, yes; I am, no doubt. Hut in what does my peculiarity make itself par ticularly worthy of comment just now?" Mrs. Kerriss had large, shadowy eyes that were either green or yellow or gray, her friends were never sure which. She now stared through the thin haze of perfumed »moke tiiat drifted from his cigar around her bronze head, and added gratuitously: "V ou are rather nice looking when you are smoking, don't you know. You look quite amiable." "By which, the nutural inference would be tiiat I usually appear—" "Napoleonic—yes," cheerfully. "He was always scowling, you know. I quite wonder how Josephine could ever have loved him as she did." Mr. Dacre's strong white teeth closed down on his cigar, which promptly as sumed an angle of 4ô degrees. He took it from between his lips and regarded it gloomily as he rolled it between his fingers. "There—now, you are 1'emperor," Mrs. Ferriss remarked, resting her two elbows on the broad arm of her chair and her chin on her palms. "When that sword-cut between your eyebrows sinks deep the way it docs now, all you need is to pull some of your hair down over your forehead. This way—!" ! "Vive l'Empereur!" she said, saluting! gravely. "You are rather tall for the 'lit tle corporal,' but otherwise you are he to the life." "I thank you." Mr. Daere lighted a fresh cigar, while Mis. Ferriss put two more cushions in her big chair and then seated herself. C'are -ully stuffing one of the cushions to fit the small of her back, she sighed contentedly. "1 am at peace with all the world. The Leader has ai cepted two of my stories and my rent is paid tip to last mouth—which is quite as much as any well-regulated landlord should expect. Had he not been so amenable to reason, I should have bought a new gown and had the rent three months behind. Hut 1 believe in encourag ing good behavior, and he seemed duly grateful." Mr. Daere leaned forward and looked at her searehingly. "Are you actually that much in debt, ' Mary?" he asked. | "That much in debt! Only two months! Frit he, monsigneur, have you been a slave of the quill for 20 years to find them millionaires? 1 was six months behind in April!" And she settled her head back among the cushions with an air of conscious rec titude. "Why don't you marry Harland?" he asked, slowly, after a moment, "lie could give you wealth, luxury, release from this 'demnition grind?' And he is good-looking anil no fool." "M—yes," murmured Mrs. Ferriss, thoughtfully. "He could do, and is, all that. And perhaps—" "\\ ell ?' said Daere, sharply. Dear me, you quite made me jump!" very plaintively. ^ es, 1 know— T am always doing or say ing something. You once said that if you married me, I would break vour heart." He threw his cigar into the fire and stared at the flames moodily. ^ es but I think I added that you would not bore me. \\ hich is the greater of the two evils?" she said, comfortably. "Hut you did not tell me wherein 1 was a pe culiar woman at this particular time?" ,, Le looked at her intently for a moment. "Well, 1 cannot altogether understand >ou. His voice sounded dull and weary Mrs. Ferriss frowned. Then getting up from her cushions, she began to pace the floor slowly, aer soit tea-gown trailing in silvery folds behind her. "La on,'' she said, presently. He stared into the fire and did not speak. Soon she went to her desk and took out a letter. everth# men Do you recollect one time my writing > on of Angelo ; Where I said 'there is al ways a Laura.' " Going over to him, she laid a letter on his knee. 1 hat was your answer. Do you remem ber?" Bending over him, she read: Of course, dear, there is always a Bea trice or a* Laura.

How you and I would gloat over the old stuff in Home, Venice Florence! Yet, I do not know -you are a delicate woman, beautiful and fond of the luxuries. I'm worse than Michael Angelo —I have the rind on. I sleep hard and dine cheap and walk alone in the bleak, black, winter's night, through sleet and driving rain. Then I know you never could endure a man in a flannel shirt and thick boots!" "You quite reveled in metaphor, when you wrote that." She laughed, a little, low, odd laugh, then went from him back to her cushions. 1 he first and the last of our being it doubt, you say. And you do more—you doubt all the time." Her voice was low and sweet. He lifted his head, and her eyes, smiling, inscruta ble, met his. "You are not a— er— pretty man.

His face seemed carven in granite as he rose to his feet and faced her. .She, too, had risen and he r face had paled. She looked at him a long moment, then sie said, very gently: "Yes.'' Mrs. Ferriss moved softly to his side and slipping her hand up to his face, she turned it toward her. Do you tnink you could trust me now?" she asked, her lips smiling a little, but the eves dark arid wistful. He looked down into her nice, a sudden ligut and warmth softening his own. "You mean—?" he whispered. I nat 1 have loved you always—ah, my 1 eloved!" [ i , j j 1 j ! j j j ! j a to And as her lips met his, at last, he un- i£. erstood I , j TLE LIMIT. BT FRANK ▼. IMOKMII, ! ' hypocrite. Lisle | Lcks, he seemed He bed been known as » bopelees drunk ard and "good for nothing" for so long that he believed it himself. His friends had ar gued with him until, at last, they had aban doned further effort and decided to let him drift on as he would. They were disgusted with him, and even he admitted they had eau&e to be. And yet, they still found some thing tine in his nature—perhaps it was his frank manner of confessing his faults or his humanity in the face of criticism, or, perhaps, his sincere, if futile, desires to re form and, as hi# friends would urge, make something of himself—or, perhaps, with some, it was the only way he had of smil ing under lire. Hi# friends told him he was weak ami not viciously bad, and he himself believed he w.i; weak and was very doubt ful about the latter. Finally tiiere came one who had faith in him, abundant enough, he began to think, for both of them. He remembered their irst meeting, in her own pa: hir; she stand ing at the side of the fireplace, with its glow illuminating her face. He remembered that tiie did not impress him as being so very pretty then—neat, sweet, and attractive, certainly—with a pleasant and syrnpat et it voice and "good-fellow" kind c.f manner. He drifted back again, he did not under stand why, and soon, to his own surprise, found himself on quite an intimate footing, contented to sit silently studying her fea tures and their ever growing bc-auty. As a result, he grew ashamed of himself and made determined resolutions to reform, which were as frequently broken as made, and as promptly made again. He soon be gan to think that she understood him as no one else had ever done. She fourni so many good traits in his character, delightful sur prises to him, tiiat lie finally decided to be come the man that she believed him to be. He decided to start with a clean slate—ami so* told her one evening, as they were sit ting before the eheertul lire, of his lire, and spared nothing in the painting. Confes sion was sweet, and, of all else, he had never been a hypocrite, and he wanted to >.:io\v her what good site had done him. Not a word she uttered during his recital. Siie simply hail »at quiet, with her hands fold ed on her lap, gazing steadily into the tire. He wondered, now and tiien, as his ,tnry progressed, of what she was thinking, whether his recital shocked her, if she was trying to read in the live coals the dreary future opened up to her, why the cat an noyed him brushing his leg. When he had finished, he, too, sat quiet, vaguely wondering if he had been v i . in telling, but then he did not want t > be a ning to the heavy clink to hear them set them [ selves to tiie words: "You have lost her." he wondered, why ne only now felt how very dear she was to him and how usele-s lift i seemed without her. What was tae use ot , it all, anyway, of his good resolutions, of his j strenuous efforts, of his abstinence? No matter now what lie did or became, he had j just shattered her good opinion of niin and 1 how could a woman love a man after that? "Is there any more?" Her mild question startled him out of j his ruvery. lie was but dimly aware of the stillness of the house, of her quiet, con ! strained tones as she remarked now late it was, as siie bade him guod-nigiit, of her j saying that she wanted to think it all over, j As he walked slowly homeward, he re viewed again all he had told her. Yes, he j had certainly been frank, brutally frank, ! and made a clean breast ol it. After all, j had it been necessary? Well, he would leave it until to-morrow. The night's sleep would clear his thoughts. The next day he received her answer and he thought that if he loved her before, he certainly adored her then. Her faith in him remained unshaken, and she luvt'l him more than ever. How bright the tyorld suddenly looked! How joyous his heart sang! They had been secretly engaged for al most a year, a whole year of unalloyed hap piness, for they knew there would be pa rental objections. His friends had noticed the change in his habits, but ceased to wun der, and accepted his reformation as com plete. He felt that lie had worked hard, but it had been a pleasure to work, thinking constantly of her. Her faith in him was arm. 11 is progress was slow, but they were encouraged. He was steadily gaining e. ad way and, this evening, he and she attended the play together. The evening passed quickly, as all such evenings had, and he gladly accepted her invitât ion to come in a in'oni-lit and warm himself before going home. The moment had lengthened silent ly, as usual, when she said : "1 realize I've made a mistake. I've been wanting to tell you for some time, but did not have the courage. I'm so sorry- but I nk it best to break our engagement, don't von? You know you don't like hypocrites." He found himself trying to remember what the play they had just seen had been and dimly wondering why lie couldn't. "Why don't you say what you are think ing? Why don't you abuse me, as I de serve?" she added. He stood looking at her dumbly, numbly. "1 suppose," she continued, "you will go back to your dreadful drinking—to your old life?" "1 don't know," he muttered. "Good night."—Mirror. Slllihtly Off ini I'rnnunrinlinn. A very estimable woman of Milwaukee is an earnest member of a local German class, but her method of pronouncing some of the words, at least in one specific instance, aroused the mirth of her companions. At a recent meeting of the class, one of the questions in the day's exercise was: "Are you not glad that you are able to learn Ger man ?" This query was in the foreign language, and the answer was: "Ja; gewiss," mean ing: "Yes, certainly." It so happened that this particular woman was called up to read the question and answer. She got through the question all right, but convulsed the class by reading the answer this way: "Ya; gee whiz!"—Milwaukee Sentinel.
