Jane Smltb was romantic. In spite
of her plain name—or because of It- -
she hated plain things and plain, prac

fact that she loved him and that she
had been his constant companion
from childhood and that he was emi

Shortly after plain Tom Anson had

Jane was rowing on the small lake
that bordered on her father's estate,
near the high road, when her canoe
upset and she found herself flounder- j

At the psychological moment a
large motor car rounded a sharp curve ,
In the road, chugging like a red de

soaked linen bodice, gave a leap.

snort, was rounded In off the high
road and brought to a standstill. The

other lr pediments instantaneously
and with incredible speed had reached
the water and plunged in.
The handsome stranger carried her,
dripping but happy, up the bank. She
allowed herself the luxury of leaning
against his shoulder until he had dried
her face upon a comer of the linen
dust coat in the car and made no de

previously; he had just arrived from
foreign parts to look over his ances

and, later, inhabiting the old place.
During the next few weeks Jane
went about with Breamy eyes. Every
afternoon, at a certain hour, she was
met near the lake by the mysterious
red motor car and when she returned,
pink cheeked, from her stolen ride
she had listened to more romantic
nonsense in two hours than simple
Tom Anson would have toid her in
six months.
It had gone so far that she had
promised to marry her brave rescuer,
unconditionally, any day and
that he might name, when one day he
begged the privilege of meeting her
in her own home
"In secret, of course, love."
