Couldn't make up to a woman to nave his neck wouldn't bother to try. But he's all ritflit !" And Mr. Harriman was wont to drift off into a warm enumeration of his partner's endless virtues. ' But on this frosty Februarv morn inj TIr. Jjguckley'K admiral.de puilitieg seemed to be under a cloud, as it were. He marched into the office and denos ited his umbrella in the corner with a baii. His hnnd.-ome face was sombre, his bright and smiling eyes were frowning. Mr.eBucklev was feeling cross. And why? Bo it recorded to his sharne that he had eaten too lute and to much at a tn-party tin- eveninir re viou, smoked too many cigars, and wakened ith a headache and the blues. f He fliould hiive g(d to the office earlier that mornimr, jsinee Harriman was to be awuy that dhy on business, and the fact .that it was after nine o'clock made him grumpier still. Ho whirled around in his swivel chair and jerked a dozen papers out of a. drawer in his desk' liaviu.ee thrown tho merest glance at the young lady who was seated at. the typewriter in an opposite corner, busily working! it. . tfr rememocrea tnr.t a new writer was to bt-ciu her f-ni:::--with the?n that uie.mii w. but i trv a. r- - nu-mbercd it without a ur.ivcr er .in terest.

'You said twenty-two thousand; and there is a word omitted here " Mr. Buckley dropped his pen with a sounding crack.

Mis "Wingate cried,, softly, yet with the brcathless iiess of indignations "It wasn't vhy, ii wasn't at all " ' "Kindlv finish it," said Mr. Bubk It y. in tones conclusive. There was silence for ten minutes; then Mr. Buckley, feeling uneasy and vexed and conscience-stricken, turned and glanced at his typewriter. "Miss Wingate " he said, falter in giy. , hhe was sitting wrHi her back' to him, her fair head bent on her hand, htr fingers idle. , "I Miss "Wingate " sta'nunereil Mr. Buckley. He grew red in the face ; he pushed his chair back and marched over to her. There was nothing to be seen nave thick, blonde braids. He strode around amk faced her. She got up hurriedly, her face averted, but' he pulled her back gently to her chair, and sat dosvn himself in sueh a way as to pin her; into her cor ner. He was much flushed the more so because a pair of beautiful brown eyes were raised to his. They were moist, and the typewriter's sweet, full Hips were tremulctus. "I am sorry if I 1 am sorry, Miss Wingate very sorry!" Mr. Buckley gasped. The girl before him was refined, lovely, lovable, charming. That his masculine eyes saw on the instant, and h- felt himself.themost miserable man on earth. "f was" trying toado it right!" the typewriter faltered. "I meant to." "Oh, I know it!" Mr. BnckleV re-' spond'd. unhappily. "I don't know what ailed me that is, I do know! I'm cross today. I don't feel, exactly well, and of course that does not ex cuse me," said Mr. Buckley, letting his eye rove, disconsolately pleading ly. Irom lier soft curls to Tier pretty, round chin. "I have been rude in tho extreme. I-ask your pardon, Miss Wingate!" But -Miss Wingate lowered her j thick lashes in silence her straight nose rather high, t "It makes me feel wretched !" said ! Mr. Bulckley. He stared at the typewriter as though dazed or hypnotized. It wa :.: her beauty alone; if,ws her look of brightness and her ppttj pride and L- r sweetness which thrilled and con fused him which caused hies, to feel u- he h&d never felt before. j "I supposed yon wanted it cor ! reeled,' Miss Wingate said, with rc- Knting symptoms- "I did.

She- tiu'Letl a Little as she net his gajze." A soft radiance overspread Mr. Buck ley's di.-trrs.fexl fwe. He was fitting somewhat close to his typewriter, but he did not move. There was a epeakin? But tho next ir:Unt Mr. "Buctilej rose hastilv anI r-abt -.1 back hi chair. The door had opened to aduiit Mr. Harriman, his partner.

"Strip" is a clever little fox terrier, the property of -Messrs. Crompton, th electrical engineer-3, and ?ke is under the protection of the company's night- watchman.
