e'vV. " 'Right there ss the first mistake
- -1 made," continued the girl of tho
streets to Jim. "I was a servant and
.; I should have been proud to serve. 1
- j-ehould have said I will do thus and
bo and. when It is finished then my

*Jy "The poor girl had learned something,
Jim," I said.
"I think you will agree that her ed? >
ocatlon came high before I finish," he
answered. ?
?'Well. I went to th# place," continued
the girl, 'where I found the
family to consist of husband and wife,
a small boy and a halt-grown girl. 1
The wife was one of those suppressed
< beings whose childhood had been one
long period of repression. Both her '
'T ' father and her mother had taken
what little youth and imagination she
had had out of her Ions? before she
1^
k married.
? *"Slie probably never had had
w much vision, but she held rigorously
to the path of right doing?and right
^ doing was always as she saw a situatlon
and how to act In regard to It.

her ideas of right and wrong you

1 little while she had almost felt Jeilpus

lunched. But Bob was not there.

BY BETTY BROWN.
! NEW YORK, Dec. 4.?There 13
something about this khaki colored
wool velour street suit, with its smart
? little hat, its trim lines, and its man;
buttons in soldierly rows which suggests
its wearer might Ije an approi
priate walking companion' (or a 'Sammy
in his uniform.
The aoft (ur collar and the deep
buttoned cuffs are the most feminine
point about this suit?which spells
business in every thread?until one
discovers its companion, the swagger

Jane pulled her (ur collar about her

she thought. But the proprietor bowed
with an lnscrutlble smile as they leit
the restaurant.
When Jane got home she first decided
to make some eandwlches and
leave them, with a pitcher of milk, on
the dining room table, and then go to
bed with a pretended headache. But
alter she had thought tho matter over
a little she went to work to prepare a
dinner ol unusual excellence.
"I'll Just let him know I'm not Jealous,
anyway," thought Jane. "And 1 11

lunch place, either. II that proprietor

won't"
Jane bustled about planning and
cooking dinner. Theti she dreBsed In

tho tables were turned and Jane ap- '
peared to be on tho defensive. Bob <,
bad asked her the one question that she
longed to ask him.
"At the Ivy Lane, did you? What
time?"
"Oh?at one; ye3, at one."
"That's mighty strange." said Bob,
and a quick look of distrust came into e
his face.
'O'h, Bob, don't look at me like that! f
I didn't have lunch there at all. I?" .
