"The next morning when I arrived s
at the office, Margie," said Paula, "1
found Congressman Smith with a smile s
holding a letter -whieh he evidently
had been reading. It was the first
smilo I had seon on his face in a long
while and consequently I grinned from 1
oar to ear. <;
" 'You look very happy, Miss New- [j

" 'I am smiling mereiy to keep you
company,' I answered. ? .jj
V'That brought him back to the letter. Ly
"Can you tell me just what 1 have done' t
for this man, .Miss Newton?" ho asked.

an old soldier out west somewhere. 'X

"Congressman Smith's worried and
weary'eyes lighted up. 'I think I must
have the best little secretary in the r
House,' he said. ? ---?
" 'But, my dear boss, that is one of
I; my regular .duties,' I answered. Just
then one of the other congressmen, a
man I nevor liked, came in and gruffly
laid: 'I want to seo you, Smith.'
" 'Woll, you are looking at me, aren't

imile, I noticed, had a tightening of the
lips and a narrowing of the eyes.
H " "Well, you know 1 can't talk before

jivo declaration of Congressman '
" 'You will have to talk before this
9ne,' answered Mr. Smith. * "
" 'I'm not a woman, I'm a secretary.'

readily understand that Mary's little
joke had cut much more deeply than
it was intended to do. Forx Jimmy
really had planned a campaign 01

To this end had been purchased,
the checks and effects in blue.
However, Jlmmv changed his mind; f
that is, aBout everybody except Mary. ^
For he went to parties and dances
and had a generally'pretty good time.
It was balm to his hurt soul to discover
that his being from New York ^
did "cut sonio tee" with the others.
Hut Mary refused to be .impressed and
Jimmy consoled hljqself that, she was a]

The day of the eoncert arrived warm th
and beautiful. It was late spring and l1!
