J Leonard fktt's Vow
Leonard Hutt ivaa a very couscion
tious 'young man. Had be been born
200 years r.go he woul.l have been ca
anchorite of the most austere type.
Leonard lived in a small villa witb
Ms Vvido'.ved motlier, to whom he'vras
tlevotc-d. havhiz little or notIi:ii"r to io !
with the softer sex. Since Le was i
fine looking fellow and had the reputa
tion of being intellectual and a strong
character, Lis seclusion wa3 very an
noying to the girls of the place, most
j of whom would have been very glad of
his slightest attention.
Daring the shooting season Hutt
went off into the wool- to fe'et a bird
for his mother, whose health and appe
tite were delicate. lie came back
without the bird, but with a very dis
tressed mind. What had happened no
one knew, but the news was soon
spread over the village that Leonard
Hutt was doing some sort of penance.
He had sworn to taste nothing but
bread and water, not to attend any
sort of amusement and not to speak.
How long this self imposed deprivation
was to last was not known.
Now, If Mr. Hutt had only known it
the real penance he had taken upon
himself was of far greater moment
than the one he had intended. There
were not less than ten unmarried girls
in the village, and every girl was at
once seized with a desire to compel
the penitentiary to speak to her. Not
one of them but would have regarded
the effort of any other to make him
break his vow as an unpardonable sin.
Each considered that in her own case
there were exceptional reasons except
Rebecca Gordon, who had no con
science in the matter and who began
laying traps from the moment he
heard of the vow.
One afternoon Leonard was walking
along a road when he was startled by
a cry anil a short distance before hi::i
saw a woman lying on the gro.ind. lie
hunlcd up to her and saw Keoecca
Goi'il-n helplos.s with a sprained auule.
"Oh. Mr. Iiutt," she w ailed, "what
shall I do":"
Hutt .-tsked with his eyes as express
ively as ptosis, ie what was the metier.
"I've either broken or sprained my
ankle," she said.
Leonard looked very nr.ieh embar
rassed and put his linger;; to l.i- H. to

would carry her homo in his arms. To
this she objected for awlnle. hoping by
complicating matters to Ln-ee him to
speak. But at last she gave in, he took
her up and carried her home. He had
no sooner turned his back on the house
than she danced to the window, shook
her fist at him and declared that she
would yet break down his resolution.
No sooner had another of the girls,
Alice Waters, heard of the young man's
vow than she began assiduously to cul
tivate his mother with a view to effect
ing an entrance to the house and laying
siege to hun. When Leouard reached
home after his adventure with Miss
Gordon he went into his library and,
tired and fretted, threw himself on a
lounge. A cough admonished him that
some one was in the room, and, looking
about him, he saw Miss Waters sitting
by a window. She had been sewing,
but had dropped her work and looked
"I didn't menu to intrude. Mr. Hutt,"
our mother said
me for another
for a moment
to get the light through this window."
Hutt stood looking so much embar-
i rassed that he could not say anything,
pleasant, while the girl waited. Then
she began to pout.
"I didn't suppose," she said, "that
you would mind."
A happy thought occurred to the per
secuted man. He went for his mother,
who did his talking for him, and Miss
Waters retired discomfited.
For two months Leonard Hutt walk
ed into pitfalls set for him by a lot of
girls, none of whom confessed to an
other what she was ching. Rebecca
Gordon followed up her attack with
the most perslstance. - She tried every
salve known to druggists for her pre
tended sprained ankle and sent for
Hutt to ask his opinion of each one of
"Mr. Hutt," she said at one of these
visits she was lying on a couch dress
ed In a becoming wrapper "if you'll
tell me why you made your vow 1'Jl
never ask you another question."
Hutt groaned and said nothing.
"Tell me." she pleaded with her red
lips as well as her eloquent ej es.
IT-it's eyes were on a clock that
stood on the mantel. In a few minutes
the clock struck 12. Hutt heaved a
long drawn sigh of relief.

Eva and I had been treading the
pleasant road of newly engaged peo
ple a week when we encountered our
first stumbling block. I called "Wedues
' day and Saturday evenings to arrive
1 not before b, to leave not after 11. I
I the hour of meeting and departed-
well, I . stayed as long after 11 as 1
dared. On the sevemh day after cur
engagement I was on time and was
ushered into the green drawing room,
which, it had been stipulated, should
be reserved for our exclusive use. Eva
advanced as usual to meet me, and I
was proceeding to greet her with the
usual kiss when she stopped me.
My heart sank. I had had a hard
struggle to get her away from a rival,
and it occurred to me that she had,
after all, discovered she loved him and
didn't love me. However, I withheld
any expression of trepidation and sank
on to the sofa where I usually sat But
tonight instead of sitting so close to
Eva that a sheet of paper could not be
thrust between us I sat on one end of
the sofa, while Eva sat on the other.
It was plain by her expression that
something of importance weighed on
her mind. I dreaded to hear her speak
the word that should undo all that had
been so delightfully done. She had
taken me up into the "delectable moun
tains," and now she was about to cast
me into a "bottomless pit."
"Harry," she began, "something has
been on my mind ever since we've been
"What Is it?" I faltered.
"You know I've always said I
wouldn't marry any but a perfectly

ing to break our engagement because
I'm not good enough."
"Don't go so fast. Often when you
have kissed me I have wondered if
you have ever kissed any one else.
I've thought that it would be better to
i ask you and get the matter oit my
"Hut supposing I have."
"Sn)iirisi!u vim b.ive well, sunnos-
ing you have." A touch of feminine
curiosity came into her eye.-; aud voice.
"In tli.it case it would depend upon
whom you have kissed."
"I never kiss and tell."
"It's not felling; it's confessing."
"I.ut v, iKit right would 1 have to tel!
that I had kissed a girlV"
"You h ive only the right to tell me.
No one else, cf course."
"Do you think the girl who has been
kissed would assent to that?"
"She has nothing to do with the mat

it well enough. ! You put your arm
around her waist and kissed her."
"How did you know all this?"
"I happened to be walking toward
the bridge and saw you."
There was a pause, during which we
sat studying on the important problem
that had come up between us.
"Well," I said at last, "since you
won't marry a man impure enough to
kiss a pure girl I don't see but that" ;
"I'm not immaculate," she said, hang
ing her head.
