KKVKViXJeP We LADY OF THE ROSE LEAF By TEMPLE BAILEY Carson, leaning over the railing on the drive, high above the . pier, watched the great battleships. There were six of them in a row, all of somber gray with the flaming red of the sunset behind them. Up their sides the jackies swarmed in a pro cession, like a stream of white ants. Tomorrow they would set sail and be off for strange lands. Carson viewed them enviously; he yearned for ad venture, any break in the monotony of his dull life. He longed to sail tropic seas, to touch on foreign shores, to live for a time a life com pletely divorced from his desk in the big wholesale house where h was bookkeeper. And, even as he longed for ro mance, it came to him. The cold wind, sweeping down from the north, brought with it something besides the dried leaves and dust from the roadway, for, fluttering like a butter fly above his head, and finally find ing a resting place on the rough sleeve of his coat, came a rose leaf, "pink and curling at the edges. . Carson glanced around him. Up and down the gray stretches of the drive automobiles and carriages came and went. The sidewalks were crowd ed with people who had come to view the battleships. In front of him was the river; back of him rows of sky scraping apartment houses towered clilflike. Of course, the rose leaf might, have come from any passing motor, but Carson's eyes sought the solution from the closed windows of the apartment house just behind. Far up there was a little balcony, and on the balcony stood a girl. She Longed to Sail Troplo Seat. was almost a child, and her fair hair was tied with a black ribbon. In her hands she held a rose, and her fin gers plucked at the petals. Carson knew that looking at it from a sober, practical point of view he wrb simply a plain bookkeeper watching the battleships, and that the rose leaf had floated to him by a mere chance, yet a sort of second sense made him feel that fate had brought the pink petal for some deeper purpose. Never in his cut-and-dried life had he dared to do anything unconventional, but in this windy twilight, with the big ships looming up against that background of crimson, he felt an uplift of spir its,' an urgent need to do something that should make tomorrow different from other Mondays. He put the rose leaf carefully in his pocketbook, then went into the vestibule of the big apartment house. The elevator boy lounged, brass but toned and self-confident, in the door way. A tip and a few questions brought out the fact that the name of the young lady on the balcony was Wynne Miss Doris Wynne. Carson went away with his pulses beating. Doris Wynne and a rose leaf ! Surely that was a combination that should make for romance. That night he wrote this note: "Dear Lady of the Rose Leaf : "This petal floated down on me as I stood watching the battleships to night, beneath your balcony. I looked up, and saw your face. I have no right to ask you to admit me to your friendship, but some day I hope to meet you, and I am sending this so that when that happy time arrival yon may know my name." He signed ' it "Maurice Carson" and sent it off. After that, life seemed very differ ent. . Like '-.some ardent Romeo, hi 1 j- r u spent much time beneath, the bal-' cony. Now and then he saw the girl but he made no sign. His adora tion should stoop to no common flirtation ; but such was his faith in fate that he believed the meeting would come some day, and. that jt would come in some way that made it right. Yet he didn't dream that happiness was so near until one rainy evening when he reached the wall that overlooked the Hudson, and saw leaning on it, not far away, a girl in black. A heavy veil was thrown back from her face and showed it white and thin. All the joy, all the gladness had gone out of it, and yet it was his lady of the rose leaf. Hs dared not approach her, yet his heart went out to her in sympathy. Only some great loss would have clothed her in such mourning. He wished he were a woman so he might approach, but knowing that his wish was futile he sought some other way. He watched her until she went back into the big house, and then he found a florist and squandered half a week's salary on a great bunch of pink rones which nia tehed the petal which had fluttered to him on that fateful Sun day night. He sent them up to her with a note which told her that he had learned of her sorrow. This time he gave his address, because if there wns anything he could do he begged her to let him know it. An answer came which began : "Dear Maurice Carson: "I do need a friend very much. My father's death has left me alone and helpless in a big city. Many weeks ago I sliowed him your letter, and he said, if you ever jneet him I be lieve you can trust him.' May I trust ynu, Maurice Carson? If I can; will vou eonio to me tomorrow morn Ing?" Maurice went, and found that her friends were in the south. He tele graphed for a faded cousin, who came on and helped him move Doris into a plain little flat, which was within her reduced means. He helped the girl get tlie pupils which her musical ability made possible; in fact, he aided her in every way be fore he said a word about his love. Rut at last the day came when it was possible to speak of his desire, and of the romance' he had builded from the rose leaf which had flut tered to him on a windy night "I knew you were mine from that moment," he said, transformed by love from a somewhat insigr'Scant bookkeeper to a brave wooer. "Perhaps I knew it, too," Doris admitted. "Do you know what I aid when I sent the rose leaves flut tering out upon the wind ?" He shook his head. "I said, 'Petals, bring me a friend,"' she told him. Then she urned to him with a charming ges ture. "But they brought me more than that, they brought me you my lover and my husband." DR. E. F.
