AUSTIN'S IDEAL When Tim saw her. sweeping grate fully through the office*, her golden hair falling lightly over her sturdy young shoulders, he forgot all about the little stenographer. The girl was Madge Jenkins, daughter of Mr. Dud ley Jenkins, senior partner of Jenkins A Barr. The girl had gone straight to her fa ther's office and a few minutes later was seen going out again at her fa ther’s side apparently to have lunch with him at his downtown club. Somehow the air was fresher and the day was brighter to Tim Austin because of that visit of Madge Jenkins. She was Just in her teens at the time and Tim, at sixteen, was beginning his career. Once—lt was two years later and by this time Tim had come to regard the girl as his presiding divinity— Madge had brought her dog to the office with her. “Would you be so good—could you Just hold him in leash till 1 come out?" Then, after he had returned the dog to Its pretty owner, after he had been Introduced to her by Mr. Jenkins him self, he realized for the first time the breach that lay between them. What must be her oontempt for him? The fact that he was no longer office boy. that he had obtained rapid promotion and had even been taken out to lunch at the club by the • boss” seemed to make no difference. Then came the day when Mr. Jenkins asked him to have dinner with him at his home. As they were taking the elevator it was akin to a blow to have Mr. Jen kins say "My daughter will be die appointed not to be at home. But it is the night of some sort of school festivity.” Then came a time when Jenkins and Barr parted company, and for busi ness reasons Tim was retained by Barr instead of Jenkins All that happened before Tim was two and twenty. Now, with anyone but Tim it might have been simply a passing memory that little experience with the gold en-haired Madge. But to Tim it was much more than that. It was even enough to account for the fact that he never took more than a very passing interest in the girls he met At twen ty-six or seven, when the sign over his office door read Barr & Austin," he had earned for himself the reputation of being Immune so far as pretty girls were concerned. "Is this Mr. BarrT" She. the one who asked this question, was a qQlet ly dressed little person who bad been ushered into Tim Austin’s presence by his office boy as a young lady looking ' for a Job.” Austin was somewhat an n.oyod by the intrusion, but as a matter of fact he needed a new typist and mai)> a rule always to Interview per sonal! ;y those whose names went down on hist pay roll. This time, however, Tim s atoely looked up at the young woman' Something in her general ap pearand]* and in the tone of her voice reass him that she would be a satis factory employee.” For a < veek or so Tim saw little of the new 1 typist. Once or twice he heard Barrr say that she was pretty, but the idea of prettiness in any em ployee' Inten sated Tim not at all. If any Interest IMld come to him with re- the n ew typist It was because trae apparently wanted to avoid him. because she found an excuse always to leave any room he happeued to enter. It was In March when the big snow storm of the winter occurred that year, and Tim Austin was not espe cially surprised that out of the four or hve members of the entire establish ment who ventured out that day and arrived at work on time, the new typist was one. Nesdless to say. Tim was also on time. His own sten ographer had not arrived and It oc curred to him that the new typist might be able to take his dictation. Hurriedly he made his way into the large, light room where Bhe did her work. When he opened the door she gave a little cry of alarm. She was standing before the radiator somewhat the worst for her encounter with the storm. She had spread out her coat to dry and was holding her hands to the heat. Hut what Tim noticed and what had caused the cry of alarm was that the new typist s hair was hang ing. disheveled and moistened by the snow, over her shoulders. Tim stopped with sudden surprise. For the first time he looked searching ly at the girl. Yes, It really was It was the same hair, those were the same eyes, and that was the same voice. It was actually Madge Jenkins. ”1 have always been faithful to the memory of the only girl that ever charmed me,” he said as soon as he could trust himself to speak. “I sup pose It Is always that way when a mau really loves, even If he is only a cal low office boy at the time.” "But why did you never let me know?” she asked, with the same voice that had charmed him so many years before. "So long as you had money and posi tion 1 never could have told you I loved you,” Tim said, “but now it Isn’t so very difficult It seems strange that I should be glad of your apparent misfortune. Perhaps 1 can do some thing for your father If he has failed It is a long time since I have heard of him ” Madge looked up at him with glow ing cheeks and sparkling eyes They kissed. (Copyright.

GRAY EYES By JANE OSBORN Madge Peckham was s teacher at the most fashionable school in the suburban community where the home of the newly rich Stonewortbs was located, and. Incidentally, she was the favorite and beat-beloved teacher of twelve-year old Vivian, who had been sent to school because of her inabil ity to keep peace with the gray oyed Mr. Sneed, resident tutor ot the Stone worth establishment. Easter holidays Mad com* and be cause Madge had no family to return to during th» school vacation, she had been glad to accept the task of return ing home with Vivian to sharr the duty of taking care of the young Stoneworths. Mr and Airs Stone worth had departed the day before for southern climes to be gone a week Madge had lined done with the lit tle girls, and after intrusting them to the care of their maid to be put to bed she had retraced her way to the library, of which nhe had caught a glimpse before dinner. From Vivian's few comments Madge had formed a distinct mental image of the tutor She fancied him lean, precise, pedantic and Immaculate, both In appearance and In speech. She heard a muffled step on the heavy rag behind her. "So you are Miss Peckham." said a voice so melodious and magnetic, so unlike anything Madge bad associated with the probable Mr. Sneed, that she gave a perceptible start "May I Introduce myself’.' We shall have to see more or less of each other for ten days. I hope we shall get on famously.” "I sin very glad to meet you, Mr. Sneed.’ said Madge, making a rapid visual survey of the athletic young man before her. "Isn’t It really quite a lark to be here?" she laughed. ”1 have never been in such a wonderful house be fore. It is quite like a fairy tale, though no doubt we shall have our hands full. I am sure Vivian will be docile enough, but Hlldegarde does not know me. l suppose Billy Is quite a terror. Did you see that he had been put to bed before you came down?" The next morning, when Madge de scended to the breakfast room at eight, she found her charges already at breakfast. "Billy Is the limit,” put in Vivian, with a knowing glance at Hlldegarde. "It Is Just dreadful when he Is at meals. I’m glad Mr. Sneed made him have breakfast upstairs." "I am quite sure I shall be great friends with that bad Billy brother ot yours.” said Madge, although secretly she was glad that the complications of the first morning had not been In creased by the addition of Billy. That first of the Easter holidays was one or rnoso days that s«ems like the longest and the shortest of a lifetime. At Mr. Sneed's suggestion, there was a mon.ir.g horseback ride In the mild spring air. lunch in the sun parlor and an afternoon spent first at music In the music room, wheu Madge aud her little charges played for the entertain nieut of the tutor, and. later, hours spent in the library.

Madge had changed her simple navy blue dress lor an equally simple eve ning frock of white that added a hun d red fold to her charms in that won •lerful day she had become well ac quainted with the tutor and she even wauled him to admire her It dhln t seem at all presumptuous, hut simply as the culmination ot a i wonderful experience when the tutoi told her that he loved her. that she was the loveliest woman he had evei known aud that the day with hei had been the most b« -uuliful In liis life. "And It is so strange, she was say | lug us they sal there in the g ow ot ! the embers. 1 had such a distinct impression of what All Sneed would be like.
