A. d LEADER WANT ADS BRING RESULTS: I_DAILY SHORT STORIES Hof liming from shopping, I opened my reticule to take out some samples when, to tny surprise, I found entirely different contents from what I had cx pec ted. In short, 1 had lnid tny own reticule down on a counter ntul picked up one belonging to sotno one else. Among the articles I found lnsldo was a slip of paper, on which was written: Dearest Little Mary-Most me at the fountain tomorrow nt 6 o'clock. I have made all arrangements. "\Vo will be mar ried at tho rectory and fctko the evening *rR,n for 13. Don't let your fears got tho ’■eiicr of you. Itemembor, 6 o'clock sharp. I will be there half an liour earlier, if >ou think you hail better come veiled carry violets. Your loving j. Tuesday. Fifteen yearn before I had received Just such n note. Indeed, there wun something similar in the handwriting of the two missives. Then l had mar ried a toan whom I had been obliged to lenvo before tho' honeymoon was over. vv sudden thought fstrin-k me. Ilmv would It do for uiefto keep this girl’s appointment a trllhsr.heod of time, Im personate her, veiled and with violets? I could find out whether she was about to wreck her future or marry u true man. If the former jJ might savo her. At half past 4 I sallied forth, bought the violets of n street tlower vender on the way and at a quarter to ft entered the square. 1 knew xvell liovv to as same a hesitating step, for 1 had "been there” before. On nearing the foun tain, looking out for .T., 1 saw a man looking eagerly at the vioieis In my hand, hut of an ago more suitable to an elopement with me tlmji a young Kiri. As I drew nearer something In Ills face and figure appeared familiar to me. Then 1 stopped, .overpowered with astonishment. No. I was not mistaken. He was the man who had been my hmhnud. Fif teen years make a marked difference In one’s appearance. nnc£ they had changed him more than they usually change men. 1 was now more than ever bent on playing the part. He Joined me, and In n whisper, as though I had lost my voice through uxcitement. I said: "lake me where we can talk I have Something to any to you.” He replied that his auto was waiting on ihe street anil led the way there. 1 got in the auto, and he ran It out «>f the town. "1 am not satisfied about tills pre ' lous marriage of yours.” 1 mild. ‘‘(Jrent heavens! Hiiven’t we gone over that sufficiently? You hare heard my explanation, and ihe last time we mot you expressed yourself entirely satisfied.” ”1 don’t like your Haying the Ida ms on your wife. If we were to hnve trouble and separate 1 suppose yon would lay all the Idaino on me.” lie turned to look at tne as though taken abnek at my words. He could not see my face for my veil, but his eyes were fixed on that as If they would pierce It. "Yon women are all alike.” lie said presently. “We men no sooner stand you on your feet than you fall down again. Here at. the last minute you are bringing up wrlint I have been al siieh Infinite pains to settle.’’ i»m. ipii me. oon i you tiinme nor .' "No. I don’t. I bln mo myself rather than her. A newly wedded pair are like two persons floating down n tortu ous channel full of rocks and snags It is the man’s part to keep Ills head and stiver the boat. I supposed that honeymoons wore always what the name implies. 1 found my wife a prey to all sorts of temporary emo flousone moment loving, the next Ir ritable. the next hesitating, the next despondent. I should have known that this, at lenst to some temperaments, is a condition to bo expected—a reaction Upon realizing that one’s fate Is irrev ocably linked with another personali ty. Besides, she was very young. Yon ore ten years older than she was at that time, and I confess I have looked to you for more steadiness. I am much disappointed.” **A woman of my age should have more sense than to elope.” "You know the reason for that. If your father and mother had not an al> sunl prejudice against your marrying a divorced man wo might be married sensibly, ns becomes our nge ” "Your first marriage having been a case of elopement. I 'should suppose, considering that It result'd disastrous ly. you w fiuld not care to try it again.” "The elopement hns nothing to do With either case. Twfo people elect to i finite. The method of their doing so i Is a mere matter of sentiment." There was a silence for a time—at j lenst. nothing but tho chugging of the j auto. We ^oro both thinking, he probably of the fickleness of woman, j I of how a trifle may turn the whole current of two lives. For years I had considered that I had married a brute. True. I had mourned that he had turn ed out to be such, but I bad not doubt- i ed that my Interpretation of him was torrect. And now I found him accus ing himself of a want of tact In his former treatment of me. his bride, and laying no blame on me whatever. I believe that feelings may be con- | teyed without outward sigas. 1 fell - that his heart was not In this second marriage. Possibly 1 may have .bulged by something In bis tone, possibly \jf an abseuoe of desire In his words. 11s was too rational for a lover. 1 wos- • dered if he were uot bent on marriugs to escape loneliness or to help him to | bury a melancholy memory. 1 deter- * mined to apply a test. “You bnve been considering me vac- j i Ulntlug." I said. "Now you seem to bo j . undecided yourself. And ) am not 1 : quite sure but you are right. Suppose j after we are married you should meet your former bride. Snp|*osp she should j i admit that In a condition new to tier, n very young girl, she had tried your patience severely; that she had mis taken you; that she deplored the break between you and her and would give years of her life to undo whnt she bad done. Y’oa would then look upon your marriage with mo ns n chain of slav ery." Ho said nothing for some time. When ho did Ills words tlirllcd me; "Candor compels me to admit that I would.” 1 leaned back on the cushion ns though much disappointed. I am not sure, but I practiced the deception of n sigh. Ills mood was Indicated by tho speed ho was driving the machine. I was tempted to tear ofT my veil mid throw my arms about ills neck. But 1 dared not. As IiIh bride I had been a girl. Now I wns approaching mid dle ago. Another denouement to this singular freak of fate occurnsl to me. I would go with him to tho church, then reveal myself. "Well,” 1 said, "It Is time that wt stop this backing nml filling. I shall show you that I have more stinidlness than you suppose. Come; turn about. Lot us go to tho rectory." » it I ion t a worn no turned his ma chine, and we were soon speeding In the opposite direction. Neither spoke for some tlnio. I wondered of wlmt he was thinking. Perhaps that loue Uness which comes over a single man nfter he has passed the heyday of youth would now be ended. Or was he thinking of his bride of fifteen years before? When we drew up nt the rectory, before alighting In- said: “There is yet time to reconsider this most important step in your life. If you have not jiorfect confidence in mo I beg of you to withdraw before it Is too late.” “If there Is vacillation now It Is In you, not In me.” Tie got out of the nuto. but not with the springy step of a groom. I knew he was swayed by two opposite cur rents. Whatever were his feelings, lie would not recede from the position lie had taken. We were received by the rector, who had been expecting us for some time. Flo placed us before a mantel, took up his prayer book and waited fur mo to take off my veil. Slowly I unwound It nml when removing tho Inst fold turn ed and looked nt the groom. lie had not seen me rlnce I wi* eighteen. Now I was thirty-three, but ho knew me at once—that l ». he know me ns soon ns he could recover from his astonishment. And the fact that his bride was the same m« he had stood by years before rendered that as tonishment rather a confusion of Ideas than a natural Impression, lie stood looking nt me, dazed. "Uwenl” ho exclaimed at last. With the two men looking at me, the one waiting to know wlmt the scone meant, the other how I came to be there In place of the woman he expect ed, it was Incumbent on me to make tin explanation. I did so to the rector, telling him briefly tho cireuinstances. When I had finished I turned to rny crootn, wondering what expression I would find there. I saw at once that he was enger to know what would be the outcome of this contretemps. Did It mean punishment, revenge, or would It lead to a reconciliation? I replied to the question asked by hie eyes with my lifts. 1 gave him a smile. With a profound sigh of relief lie turned to thi < lergyman and said: "Proceed!“ i in* roeior seemed pnxzlcd. Evt* dentl.v the situation flustered him; but, being hi holy orders, with a church man's antagonism toward innrryln* divorced people and a church inn n’t pleasure in reuniting those who have he* ii separated, he was not long Iri rn covering his equanimity, lb* looked at me for my assent I tut lie looked tn vain. I gave no assent. Neither did I express dissent. Ho looked to the groom f«»r Instructions and- doubt le a received them, for without fur th<*r d lay lie begnn the ceremony. Nelthi r man was qtilto cure whn* would lie the outcome until the qtie# Hon was asked me. ••Will you Uik# lids man to he your wedded hushnjidP I hesltatrd for a moment, then sul« firmly, "I w ill ” Both men gave a sigh of relief. And so It was that, while I was sop urn ted f<*r fifteen years fYom the mar I loved and who loved ine. by a sens# less tiff. I was reunited to him by a marvelous coincidence. Had i.<>t the woman he urns to have made his «<<•<• end wife put Ills note hi her retlcufr and left It on a counter, hnd I m.l take.’i It up by mistake, I would r;oi have been In the nick of time in a oo sifion to take what belong* d to me anti | appropriate It to myself. The retk til* i was hers; tlie man was mine. I never asked my husband how h* i explained matters to the woman wlfl * whom he had intended to elope t i considered It none of my Inislne*^ j Moreover, 1 was not Interested in it But I did ask him if he did ii"t sus ^ fleet that the woman beside him in th« auto was not the one he expected tt meet, fie told me that, while lie did hot inspect me, he felt that then* wet lunethfog In the situation foreign tt i n lint was intended.
