-THE ALMA RECORD- PAGE NINE CHAPTER XIV. A Letter and a Proposal. Tho Mort'laixl' Coal company's two Ms rouj:h buildings were completed In record time. There Imd been no r.rilier manifestations of Interference from the Halls and Torreys, and Hen derson (JofT lind been nowhere In evi dence since the night of 15111 Dale's Ironclad verbal ultimatum. Work on tre little railroad was progressing like Tildflre, and everybody was In high fpirlt.s. Ity Heck had Just arrived with the nail. He staJked with an air of great importance Jnto Pale's ollice, and ihitv the mall down on th new roll top desk ; then lie stepped backward, dropped Into a straight-back chair and logan to nurse his ritle tenderly on his knees. There was a puzzled look on his leathery face. Dale had re reived half a dozen letters, and I5y Ilerk was at a loss to figure out the why of such an overwhelming amount of mail. Dale finished his figuring, leaned buck in his swivel chair and took up a letter that seemed altogether too buJky for u business letter. More over, its address was In pencil, and somewhat scrawled, though a chlrog raphy export would have said that the handwriting showed strength of character. "I wonder who it Is," Dale muttered, "that mistakes us for a newspaper office and Is sending us copy?" "Jest what I was a-thlnkluV drawled Ity Heck through his Niagara "Open Her Up, Bill, Mebbe lt' Money, by Jake!" Falls mustache. "Open her up, Bill; mebbe It's money, by Jake!" Dale saw the postmark then, and his brows drew with Interest. It was the postmark of his old home city. "From Babe," he told himself and It was. H opened It and readmit. She had spelled most of her words correctly, b it the only punctuation she used was a period and her capitals were few. For a wonder, she had put. It Into paragraphs: ' 7? Mr. bill Dale. eartersvllle. tennoss.ee. Kind friend. I seat myself with pen In hand todrap you r few lines to let you 'know 1 am well hoping you the fante.

Babe. Bill Dale folded the bulky letter and put It slowly back into the envel ope. Then his gaze wandered through a window and to where a golden winged hlgh-holcr was hammering In dustriously at the top branch of a dead tree. He smiled to himself, By Heck and nearly all of the rest of the world for the moment forgotten, and muttered aloud: "'Yores respect lvely, Babe.'" "Haw, haw, haw!" laughed the keen eared and watchful hlllman In the straight-back chair behind him. "Tores respectively. Babe!' Haw, haw, bawl Well. Bill, dadsling It, It shorely to goodness ain't nothin' to turn all that red about! When the night's gone the day comes, don't It? Bill, old boy, It's. the same thing!" "You get out of here, By!" Dale stormed in mock severity. "Go and help the commissary clerk with the new goods; eh?" Heck . laughed another horselaugh, ros'e and went out. . ' . When he had gone, Dale began to think of the ultra-spoiled, charmlng-after-a-fashlon, wealthy, young, high night devotee, Jlramy Fayne. And he wondered, and wondered, what would come of Fayne's quick liking for Babe Littleford. After he had viewed the matter from above and below and all sides around, he frowned like a berserker. Here Is what came of Jimmy Fayne's quick liking for Babe Littleford The days had passed swiftly, and au tumn was far advanced. Save for a few chrysanthemums and asters that grew In places sheltered from the frosts, the flowers were all gone; the maples were shedding their leaves of brown, crimson and gold. Beo LIttleford's daughter had changed much In many ways. She had tried hard as ever mortal tried to lrn the correct use of words; and Mrs. Dale had been patient, painstak ing anjJ efficient In her teachings. Mot th'at Ellzabeth was educated, In any real sense of the word. Far from It. But her Improvement was, In all truth, quite remarkable. She wore more or less costly gowns nqjv, and a few Jewels, thanks to Mrs. Dale, and wherever she went she attracted ad miring glances. Jimmy Fayne had been coming to see her when Mrs. Dale would per mit It, which was not very often. Jlm my Fayne, as Patricia McLaurln had once been moved to say, was a far swing young man for all his weak nesses; ho had known in advance that tho laurel bloom would change to a rose, and then to a whlto hyacinth. Perhaps he even considered the fact that she would make n better wife for him, and a better mother for his chil dren, than some fragile and over-cultured woman of a patrician house that had about run out. At any rate, Jim my Fayne, the ultra-spoiled, had de cided that he would marry her. During thoe weeks that had been made happy by. an occasional hour at the home of the Dales, Fayne had not once mentioned marriage. He figured, and wisely enough, that to be too quick with his proposal would be to lose everything. But now he meant to propose, for h knew that Miss Littleford Intended go ing home for a visit and lie knew that when she went home she would See Carlyle Dale. The truth was, ot course, that Miss Littleford was go ing to Tennesson to attend the Oc tober term of court at Ciirteisvllle. It was a little after the niiddfe of a bright afternoon, lie found her sit ting on an iron settee In a secluded corner of the lawn, where cape jessa mines and lilac bushes grow in order ly array. She wore a light wrap, and there was an easy. to-read book In her hands; but she wasuU trying to read at the moment. He bared his bead, greeted her pleasantly; and asked permission to sit down beside her. She looked up at him. lie was Immaculately diesed. "Of course," she granted with a smile that was very winsome. He stated his mission brielly, for Mrs. Dale might appear at any min ute. "I came, Elizabeth, to ask-you to marry me." She sat as still as though she had nut heard. He went on hastily: "I confess that I'm a little ashamed of trying to take you away from Car lyle Dale, for he was always very nice to me. But I may be forgiven for that, I think, because I care for yon a great deal. Anyway 'All Is fair in love and war' you know." His voice was hardly businesslike, but It lacked original fire. Elizabeth Littleford closed the book p her lap. and lifted her chur brown eyes to his eager face. "No," she disagreed, "all ain't Isn't fair in love and war. That's one o' the very silliest sayin's I've ever heard. As for the other I like you, Jimmy, but not In the way you want me to. It's Bill Dale that I like In that way, Jimmy." Fayne looked disappointed. He was silent. "You're a good boy, Jimmy," she went on, "and I hate to make you feel the least bit bad. It makes me oh, Jimmy, It makes me blue. I wish you hadn't asked me. I'm sure you'll find some better girl than me than I for a wife." "There Is no better girl than you. Elizabeth. I'm going to wait and hope." lie took up one of her hands and kissed it, rose and went toward the Mi - ,efp iTTT- "There Is No Better Girl Than You, Elizabeth. I'm Going to Wait, and Hope." frtrcet. Before he had gone n minute, she rose, her face a little pale, and stared after him, sorely tempted for Fayne's money could bring her people out of their long night of Ignorance I V11, If she didn't marry BUI Dale and she feared that she wouldn't she would marry Jimmy Fayne, If he still wanted her If he would agree to help her, people. After all, It wasn't so much to give. What was one poor little, unhappy human life? It was late, that night, when Eliz abeth Littleford went to sleep. And when at last she slept, she dreamed of walking through a fragrant green meadow with Bill Dale. There wa-i the low humming of wild bees about the purple crowns of the Ironweed and the scarlet bloom of the clover; there was the mating call of tho partridge, and the lovelorn coo of a clove. . . .
