Then, throw lug him u sugary cake, she would run off. Soon after the dialogue episode his mother sent her an lnvltatlou to the boy's birthday party. Filled with pride, she exhibited the tiny note, with its pictures of birds at the top.

First, each of the little girls was given a pair of ribbon reins with which she must catch a horse and trot him past the grand stand, where the Judges sat smilingly in armchairs. The girl caught her "great, big. stupid boy" and was linppy. After that a man In a long black robe did wonderful tricks and the ehil dren's eyes grew wide with wonder. Then, such 11 supper bouillon and turkey and chicken salad, each in turn, like real grownups! And olives! "What's them things?" askeil the boy, when he discovered the olives. "Look like pecans." "Oh, yon great, big, stupid boy, dou't you know olives?" the girl retorted scornfully. "Yes, but I wanted to see if you did, girlie," he answered. The little girl turned and looked ut him. "Why do you call me that?" she asked. "Why do you call me 'stupid boy?'" he returned. "Because that piece said so." she re plied, her blue eyes smiling Into his. "Don't you like It)" "I- 1 don't mind from you," he said. "Hut you haven't told me why you call uie girlie," persisted the girl "Well, because because 1 like you, and that's what I'nclu .laek calls Miss l'aterson. 1 heard him say 'I can call you girlie when folks are round, but when we're alone I will call you sweet- In-art.1 " "Sweetheart." the little girl mur mured. "1'apn calls mamma that sometimes. Sounds pretty, don't It) He must love her lots. Does be?" "No more than I love you," he as serted proudly, playing with her curls. "Her hair Isn't half as pretty and she hasn't got such big blue eyes. Mamma says you look like an angel, so there:" be blurted out, half ashamed of having voiced his admiration. "I don't want to be an angol." she retorted decisively. Hut after she got home she decided that she liked th boy better than ever. The children were friends for two years. Then business reverses came to Mr. Ilurlburt. the little girl's father, and they went abroad to live. "You'll always be my sweetheart, girlie," the boy said to his little girl friend when she left. "And I'm going to niiiri v von when I grow up. Don't forget me." And she, understanding little of his men nine. said. "I won't." Then she lifted her face for his farewell kiss. And the boy remembered, and his mother encouraged the thought of "girlie." She kuew that the memory of the child's sweetness and Innocence was good for her boy. The drawing rooms of Mrs. Apple' ton's handsome home were thronged with guests. Two men stood talking, apart from the others. Their eyes wore on the slender, graceful llgure of a girl on the opposite side of the room "I am sure I know her or have kuowu her." Kobert Worthington was saying "I wish she would turn around "I believe she Is some one whom (Jrace met abroad," Jack Appleton re turned. "Her name Is Ilurlburt. Come, I'll present you." And without wait Ing fur his friend's reply, he started forward and Worthington found him self being lutn.'uced to Miss Ilurlburt. " think I used to know Miss Hurl burl long, long ago, before she was quite grown up," he said, looking at her frankly. He had held her In his thoughts so long that the meeting did not seem strauge to him, but to her his smile was like the-perfume from far off flowery fields which she had passed through sometimes, but could not remember where uor when. "II think" Then, with u rush of memory, It all came to her. "Oh, you aro the boy I used to play with be fore wo went to Europe to live. I'm so triad vou remember inc. but It's strauge.

And she extended her hand to him with the circlet of ula inoiids. After a minute, when Worthington had swallowed some hard things that rose lu his throat, he said, half ques tioning!)': "You you are happy)" She glanced at hlni shyly from under her long lashes. The band which wore the circle trembled. "I suppose so, she said. "I am doing my duty. Isn't that the surest road to happiness)" The wist fulness of her appeal made him bold. "Then you do not love the man?" he asked. Oh, no," she said abruptly. The re ply had escaped before she realized It. It had been taken so much for granted this fact that she did not love the count-that the words were Involun tary. Father wished It," she went on, "and I promised. I want you to mar ry Count Itlnaldi or the son of my old friend Worthington,' ho said. They were the only ones who were good to him in his trouble." At the mention of his name a light broke through the cloud which Worth lnetou had watched fold about him while she spoke. "Miss Ilurlburt," he whispered eager lv. "do vou remember my name Kobert Worthington)" He stood back to watch the effect It produced. Wonder, delight, sorrow, resignation, followed each other lu quick succession. Then she looked him squarely In the eyes, telling him more plainly than words that she un dcrstood. "I um glad you are here." she said, holding out her hand to him. "It was nice to see you again. I must go now. "But I may see you)" "Robert Worthington Is welcome she said, and was go no. Worthington saw the girl occasional ly, but it was ouly a short time uutll he learned that she would never break a plighted troth. And yet yes, he felt that her heart was slipping Into his keeping.

This plan provides for democrats to sign a pledge, binding themselves to attend all primaries of their party between now a;id the national campaign in 1908. It is a practical method for the organization of the party by the rank and file, in order that it may prove true to its name and lc the efficient servant of the people in the establishment of reform. A little investigation will convince you that The Commoner has hit Ufon a feas ible and effective method ot per suading democrats to participate d the councils of their party.
