: A Letter
5 The Latter Was More Valu-
able Than the Former
Going to my room at my hotel one
morning after breakfast, 1 was sur
prised to sec n young lady cqmlng out.
1 glanced ut the number on the door,
wondering If I were not about to make
a mistake. No; there were the tlgurcs
24, and No. 21 was my room.
"Where are you going, sir?" she ask
ed haughtily.
"Into my room."
"Your room?"
"Yes, my room."
"I beg your pardon, this Is my room."
"I beg to differ with you." -
The young lady was becoming angry.
Her checks flushed, and her eyes
flashed. At that period of my life a
pretty girl showing light was au at
tractive object to me. Now, an elderly
woman under the sumo circumstances
Is Just the reverse. I was amused at
this young lady's heat, especially since
I knew she was wrong.
"What Is the number of your room?"
I asked her.
"No. 24."
"Are you sure?"
"Yes, of course I'm sure, Don't you
suppose I know the number of my
What should I do? I couldn't very
well go into the room with the, lady to
Investigate matters. Noticing a speak
ing tube for the use of the employees
of the hotel, I said tothe girl:
"Suppose you usk the clerk to give
you tho number of your room."
"I'll do no such thing. Do you sup
pose I'm going to lot him think I've
lost my senses?"
"Perhaps I am the one that is mis
taken. I'll nsk him myself."
I stepped to the tube, whistled, and,
receiving attention, said:
"Giye me the number of my room,
Tho young lady was not so far from
the tube .but that she could hear the
"No. 24, Mr. Eldrldge."
The young girl's look of astonish
ment wns very amusing. She came
for the tube like a whirlwind, scarcely
giving me time to get out of her way.
"What's the number of Miss Chal
mers' room ?" she asked.
"What name?"
"Chalmers Marian Chalmers."
"One moment please."
The girl waited Impatiently while
the clerk was evidently consulting the
records. Presently the reply came:
"Miss Chalmers' room is 34."
I have never seen n madder girl.
Without a word to me she strode to a
staircase and disappeared. I went into
my room. There was nothing of mine
In It except a snlt case, and that was
where it would not be noticed. On the
porcelain washstan'd was a ring and be
side it a letter addressed In a feminine
hand to Charles P. Atwood. U. 8. A.
It was sealed ahd stamped, ready, for
the post I was not willing to trust
my reputation In tho hands of so Im
petuous a person, so, catching up both
ring and letter, 1 hurried downstairs
and gave them to the clerk for safe
keeping. I told him the circumstances
connected with my turning them In
and asked him not to notify Miss Chal
mers of their receipt till I asked him
to do so. '
"When tho young lady misses them
I think we shall have a cyclone," I
"Quite probably,," be said, with a
I returned to my ropm and had not
been there ten minutes vhen I receiv
ed a message from the clerk that Miss
Chalmers would like to meet mo in the
public parlor at once, I gave her a
little time to cool, then went to tho
"Through my mistake." she said, "I
left a letter and a ring In your room.
Will you "kindly give them to me?"
"Here Is the key to the room. You
may go or sendvthere to recover yosr
"flense do give wo the letter,"' sho
eald hi pleading tone. "You may
keep the ring."

in t 1 wmh liei'otiung every moment
charmed with this waywilrd ircnture.
"You are Inclined to be complimen
tary." I replied.
There was oinethlng connected with
ho letter that deprived Miss Clialmurn
of nny reasonableness she mnyi have"
possessed In her calmer momenta. She
plunged deeper Into the quicksand.
"Do tell me If you have' Ksted my
"1 assure you that I have not done
anything of the kind."
This seemed to give her some re
lief. "I'll do this for you," I said.
"I'll go to my room nnd If I And any
thing there belonging to you 111 bring
It to you."
. "Will jou? Oh, how kind! I knew
you for a gentleman the moment I laid
eyes on you."
"Indeed!" I replied with difficulty,
restraining n smile.
In order to preserve the letter If not
the spirit of truth. I went to my room,
toon to the hotel office nnd nsked the
clerk to give me the ring. He did so.
nnd I returned with It to the young
lady, who was Impatiently waiting for
"Heie Is jour ring" I said, handing
it to her.
"The letter?"
"It Is not there."
"Oh, heavens!" she moaned.
I don't pretend to excuse myself for
iny action on this occasion, except on
the ground that "all's fair In love and
war." And this excuse may be far
fetched. I'ioui the lady's action, I
fancied that this Mr. Atwood was an
object of interest to Miss Chalmers,
and mj own Interest in her was de
veloping with lightning rnpldlty.
"Are you quite sure." I asked, "flint
you did not post it?"
"Xo. I did not. thank goodness, but
I nearly did. I put it Into a letter box,
bpt I held on to one corner nnd didn't
Imp it." '
"Are you fearful of Its reaching the
wrong person V" 1 nsked, throwing syin
pa thy into my voice.
"I'm fearful of Its reaching the right
"Can't you write a letter recall
Ing it?"
"The person for whom ,It was In
tended starts for the Philippines to
morrow mori)lng. But thnt Isn't the
chief difficulty In the wny. To recall
it would expose a contemptible fickle
ness." "A lady Is always privileged to
change her mind, you know."
"If she says 'No' a change may be
excusable, but If she says 'Yes' It's a
very different matter."
My conscience, which should have re
strained me In holding this advantage
oer the girl and permitting her to tell
her affairs to a stranger, was really
growing weaker all the while under
the excuse I have offered, for 1 was
becoming very anxious to "discover
whether all wns fixed between my
charmer and this army man. Her last
statement was a dead giveaway. It was
new plain to me that the letter In ques
tion was an acceptance and that that
acceptance was regretted. Such being
the ease, the pleasure I bad taken In
tormenting her ceased, and I began to
plan how I could return her property
without Incriminating myself.
"1 have au idea," I bum pretending
to think very haul.
"About what?" she asked eagerly.
"What has become of your letter."
"Do tell me."
"No: should 1 be mistaken you will
meet with a disappointment. Remain
here for a few minutes while I make
,iu investigation."
She followed me eagerly with hei'
eyes as 1 left .the room. I went to thi?
clerk of the hotel and asked him to
lake the letter 1 had given him to Miss
Chalmers' room and leave It on the
dresser. He assented, and on bis re
turn I asked him to send a maid to
the room and bring it to me. When the
maid did so I took her with me to the
parlor and told her to give it to Mlsrf
The look of relief on the lady's fact
vas u sight to behold. .
'Where did you find It?" she asked
the maid.
"On the dresser In room 34, miss."
Are you sure?"
"Yes, miss." -
"1 can explain It," I said, continuing
my Ananlns performance. "When you
met me this morning you were very
much rattled. Indeed, you said some
very unkind things to me."
"Forgive me."
"You must have thought you left the
letter In my room, whereas It was all
the while on your dresser."
"I wonder if 1 did."
"I am certainly very happy to be the
instrument for the return of that which
you seem lo prize so highly."
"I wish 1 could reward you for yo'ui
kindness mid 'make up for my horrid
treatment of you."
"You tan."
"By permitting this episode lo resuli
