Last slimmer down on the ii we got on awiuily ?ell at firs was later on that I came to conclusion that it would be a i take to carry matters further, as she had just??ell, not esa refused, but put me ofl for second time, I thought it bette let the matter drop. Then I met Laura. Lmra adi music balls. She aay * that thinks the color scheme of ballet most instructive and come to the conclusion that il iiticunscliuish based on the pi; the piineiplj?' of color music, am sure she'd right. I like tl: myself. I saw a good dial of her a that dini.er, and last week in act Rally became engaged. Nl i all?

Two days later among inv morn nig's lefersl received a note Itoi Miss ?Strangertord asking me t goto tea. 1 had intended going t see Liui?, but on getting a te'e gram to put me of!, decided to g and see Phyllis. I was shown into ber boutloi and round her, as usual, curled u m au armchair) smoking a cigaret ti? lt struck me that she was lookiBj extremely pretty, ard for one Bee! ing second I almot wished?tha Laura smoked. A'so, il Laura has a fault? which mind vou, I am riot prepare? to admit?still, if she h&* a fault It is that she has quaint ideas oi the subject of hair-dressing. No*, I'b.vllia is always beautifullv ?coifle." For my part I felt a little DU comfortable, but Mis? Phyllis wai not in tbe slightest degree liis I'omposed. There was another man there, and be glance'l at met little, but I treated him with de? served contempt. After about ten minutes of desultory chatter hi took himself ofl. Miss Phyllis watched the door close behind biro, aud then, sud denly turning to me, she Btretcheii out tier hand und said: "My dear Gerald, how can 1 thank you?" I confess that I was consider ah.? taken aback. "I think," coutinned Phyllis, without noticing my surprise, ?-that you are the most generous aud fot glying iiersou in tbe world." "I ?as alraid,nsaid l,"that you were offended with tue, hut you are not, are you sincere you've asked tue to come!'' '?Offended !" said Misa Phjllig. '?My dear Oerald. whatever made you think that ? You're a dear. ?See, I've got it on." I did see. and to my horror I realised for the first line that the glistening object which I had lieen admiting so much in Hhyills' chiffon was tbe brooch 1 bad or dered for Laura, "Tha;," I gasped "Is a little, me ment? of our?ol engagement?" "Yes," said Phyllis, smilling. "I consider myself ready engaged now." "Yon don't mean to say," I staintui-reil, "that vou*? "Oh. bot 1 di!" she interruiitei'. "Really, really l rh !" Aud bei eves spaikled. "Hiere isa mistake somewhere," I explained confusedly. "I?that in, you? I menu I am engaged." "Nifnrall.V," BBld Miss Phyllis, rataiag her eyebiows. ??We ata Loth engaged?ittn't it splendid." "But'' I managed to ejaculate at last, with more toice than polite, ?ess. "I'm engaged to some one eine, nor to voo." Tnis speech, blunt and plain enough iu lie wai, seemed toafTirtl Phyllis infinite amusement.

Woodruff In many aided tat to Iu Ids young mart hood he WOS BO athletic light at Yale and foremost In students' pranks and frolics. When his college days were over, he went Into commercial and manufacturing life and by a rare com? bination of energy, Industry and good luck made himself a millionaire. Dur? ing this period It Is Mtid that he never violated hU rule to live frugally and to devote himself to business until bis In? come was $.00,000 a year. When he reached this point, be en? tered political life and applied himself to It as engrosslngly as be bad to man? ufacturlng and. It may be added, ss successfully. He rose rapidly from tbs ranks until be became one of tbe lead? ers of tbe state and In l?Wi was selected as the running mate of Governor frank 8. black and In 1808 of Theo? dore Roosevelt. He ha? a very pleaa iug personality and looks far more like a Yorkshire squire than a typical American. He Is fastidious In dress to such an extent as to provoke tbe satire of political opponents, who have dubbed him "Tim o* the Wescots" and "Neck? tie Timothy." He Is a fluent speaker and writer aud Is quick at repartee. Once when In debating with a wealthy politician the latter said: "Wealth gives you no advantage. I'm as rich as you are." "Yes." replied Mr. Woodruff, "but you made your fortune out of politics, and that's where I'm spendlag mine."? Saturday Eveuiug Post. .Toahert's Reply.
