SHORT STORY
???????J
Simeon Silchester.
By JANE 03B0RN.
(Copyright, 1916, by the McClure
Newspaper Syndicate.)
fANB JEKKS received and answered
I many hundred letters a weok. They
J came from all sections ot the conn
^ry?from school girls, old soldiers,
young married women, western miners
and other kinds of folk. But they
were all addressed, not to Miss Jane
Jenka, but to Prof. Simeon Sllchester.
handwriting expert of the "Hearth
Companion." Jane Jenks was the
youngest member of the editorial staff
of that widely read periodical. As
part of her duties she had to write the
monthly article on "What Your Handwriting
Shows." Meantime she had to
answer letters from West, East, North
and South from subscribers to the
magazine whose egotism had been
aroused sufficiently to submit a specimen
of their own handwriting in order
that Prof. Simeon Jjllchester, "worldknown
expert on the science of handwriting."
might forward them "a complete
analysis of their character as indicated
by the sample submitted."
Jane Jenks didn't really know very
much about handwriting, but she knew
as much as any other member of the
staff on tha "Hearth Companion." and
as she had originated the Identity of
Prof. Sllchester, ehe felt a certain
amount of satisfaction in her many letters?letters
that Indicated that her
monthly articles had a "pull" with a
certain class of the maguzlno subecrib
era.
Jane was pretty, though perhaps It
didn't often occur to the folk at the
"Hearth Companion" office to notlco
that fact. Had there been more of outdoors
In her life, more air In her lungs
and more blood in her veins, she would
have been very pretty. Sometimes she
dreamed of the day when she might
aave enough to leave the city and go
OS somewhere In the wilds and get "a
ranch or something and run It." True,
Bhe didn't know anything about ranchas,
but, reasoned she, she hadn't known
anything about handwriting and yet
she bad made a success of It?at least
a success enough to satisfy her own
limited ambitions.
. And so the letters came pouring In,
and Jane answered them all. When a
smooth, even, vertical handwriting arrived
she told the sender that he or she
was young but possessed within himself
the making of a great and brilliant
future. When a letter penned In the
faltering writing of age came she wrote
a letter of encouragement, mentioned a
Ufe well spent, with wide though unrealized
Influence. Scented letters
with the unformed writing of a woman
of little Intellectual development called
forth from her a letter of reproof for
too great frivolity, too little Independence,
too great love of self and pleas,v;
ttre. And so they went. Really, she
grew to believe that she had some way
Kot telling through the letters she received
the characters of the senders.
I unce a letter came from a correV
spondeut who signed his name "Montona,"
and the writing rather puzzled
Jane JenkB, as she sat at her desk in
her dingy little office in the "Hearth
f Companion" headquarters. But she

"I wonder if I have mentioned to
you, Margie," Baid Paula, "that among
my greatest comforts at this time were
the letters I received from my dearest
and best friend Emma. She wrote
with great regularity. She had married
her restaurant keeper and they
were both very happy,
jjjj ."The morning after I got the note
from Charlie Montgomery 1 opened
abetter from Emma which said:
" 'I am still keeping my weather

" 'It's a game, Paula, this life of

and that was what made me give you

didn't much matter to her whether or' 1
not she made a true character study. *
The writing was legible, and, there- ;

writer had a methodical, honest nature.
It was slightly awkward, and for that 1
reason she added that ho lacked mental
expertness, that hie greatest fault '
lay In Inaccuracy and Indecision. There 1
were certain waverings In the line and 1
this, she said, indicated timidity. '1 1
believe that you are not married," she
added, with all the authority ot Prof, t
Simeon SilcheBter to back her. "I be- \
lleve that the reason why you are not i
married is because you have never had I t
the deep, inner courage to look about! 1
and find for yourself a woman good | i

do is to stand up for your own rights, j ;

y one day. "I a aid you weren't Prof.
Simeon Sllcheater," he Insisted with
itartled backward glances, "but he
lays he's got to ace you. He's as tall
is old Abe Lincoln and 1 think he's
nad. What'll 1 say?"
Before Jane Jenks bad time to say
hat the only thing to be said was that
Prof. Simeon Sllcheater never came to
he office the tall, Irate person had cnered
her office.
"I want to see Prof. Simeon Sllchescr"
he said deliberately. The boy
vlthdrew, tho tall one closed the door
ind looked adamantine as he stood
owerlng down at the girl at the desk,
["here were letters addressed to the
irofessor on her desk, and one, signed
>y his name, lay open, the Ink of the
dgnaturc still moist and damp. "I see
'ou aro his secretary," tho man conlnued,
"and I've no doubt you expect
tim in soon. I'll wait."
"Perhaps I could take the message,"
laid Jane feebly.
"No woman could take the message
ust as 1 want to give it, and few men

Is how In?I'll add the embellishnonts
when 1 see him personally?how
le dared to call me a coward? I wrote
0 lilni and this Is the answer he sent
ne." The man from Montana throw
lie opened letter on the desk and Jane
leaks recognised it as the one she had
ccently sent.
"I'm very sorry," Jane pleaded, feeing
Just a little amused In spite of hot
lrst terror. lie was obviously not
rorn the city, but there was nothing
twkward about the man in spite of bis
1 feet J Inches in height. Ho was !
toting. hut with the youth that showed j
ichlevement and mental concentraion.
He ilid not smile even when Jane
united apologetically up to him.
"To be suro l'rof. Silchester some-1
irnes makes mistakes," she began.
'I am very sorry." Then for some reaion.
probably because of the steadfast
tnd searching gaze of the gray eyes of
he man, she forgot her role. "You
ice 1 am really l'rof. Simeon SUchescr.
I try to make the right guesses.
How could 1 tell that you were a big
nan, and how did I know that you
vero a perfect boar of courage? You
night have been a coward?"
"And you wrote that about my not
laving had the nerve to get married?"
isked the big man. and then he laughed
'or the first time. "Well you're a funny
tlnd of girl. So you think you are
Simeon Silchester? Well, that's very
lunnv. I've come all the way from
ny place In Montana, just to have a
'ight with you. Nothing over made me
to mad In my life as that letter?but
1 won't fight a lady even when she doterves
It."
So relieved was Jane at the way the
tngry one recovered from the first inenslty
of lile anger that she made him
arry on that first call, pledged him
tever to toll another soul that there

DON'T BE BALD
i Tells How to Make Hair Grow Thick
' and Lustrous on Bald and Thin Spots
Thousands of men and women are
1 growing bald every day and don't
' know the reason why. This is indeed
' a pity, says a lialr specialist, who
states that baldness usually comes
from carelessness.
The treatment is very simple; remove
the dirt by shampooing every
ten days and destroy the dandruff
; germs by frequently applying a little
of the real Parisian Sage, a most ofllcient
preparation that the best druggists
are now recommending as one of
the quickest and safest treatments to
surely stop Itching scalp and falling
hair, remove all dandruff and to properly
nourish and invigorate the hair
rocts.
Parisian Sage is also the discriminating
woman's favorite hair dressing
utcause it makes the hair seem twice
as abundant and gives it a softness
and luster that compels admiration.
A generous bottle costs but little from
the Mountain City drug company, who
guarantees it to you.
