Such Things May Happen
Mary was unusually quiet. Her faro
had acquired prrca?cT length. "What's
the matter, Mary?" I aked. She is
the chestnut colored maid who Kes
from hou5ao to house and is a common j
carrier of intimate nows. For more
reasons than ono hor title, visiting
maid, Is appropriate.
"I war thinking what thin;;: may
happen," said Mary, taking a stitch in
tinio in the skirt braid of ray storm
"There's no love affair worrying
you?" I asked. I knew Mary's skill
and energy and abounding health
maxio her work and wacs secure.
.Mary dismissed the disquieting sex
wjth a Fnaj of her finders. "I don't
raro that for none of them." Mary
was convincing though not pramraat
ical. "I'm thinking of a youn?: sirl
I know and how sho wa3 treated.
letter I got from her this morning re
minded me."
Vhilo assuring herself that the
hooka and eye3 were beyond criticism
sho told me this story which I-was af
terward at pams to verify and which
I think I ounjht to tell to the little
stranger In a city and to the family
and friend3 who should stiard her as
something very precious.
Sho had como from England to New
York because she knew salaries were
higher for such as she, a diligent lit
tlo stenographer, willing to work hard
to livo plainly, and anxious to put by
tho old age fund that is in the fore
ground of tho thoughts of every level
headed business women.
She secured work, sho f amed a
fair salary. Stio worked hard, and
in two banks, for she reasoned that it
wero better in two than in one, sho
had a balance of four hundred dol
lars. Came one day under her eye an
advertisement offering to teach young
women a new occupation that would
be exceedingly profitable. With the
laudable ambition to do better she
called in response to the advertise
ment. A handsome, well gowned wo
man explained that sho trained chauf
feuscs. Sho taught girls, to drive au
tomobiles. It was a profitablo occu
pation, and a healthful one, for it re
quired ono to be much in the open
air. But as a guarantee of good faith
to assure their keeping1 at it and taking-
an interests in the instruction she
ottered, she expected them to mako a
deposit of a certain sum. "Now how
much money have you?" she asked.
"I have only four hundred dollars
in the bank," timidly answered the
littbr stranger. "(lencrally I ask a
deposit of eight hundred, but Wet tak
en a fancy to you and I'll speak to
the firm represent and try to get
them to cept this. When jou've
finished your lessons and are able to
run a car. this four hundreC dollars
will bo returned with interest at 10
per cent."
Before she went back to her ofii.
the girl had a note for her four hun
dred dollars to draw 10 per cent. Vho.
woman held its duplicate. She said
It was a customary form in business.
Enters Mary. She arrived at the
handsome, well gowned woman's
rooms, for whom she worked three
days a wf-ek, before she had break
fasted. Mary answered the tele
phone. "There's a forlorn little vo'ce at the
wire asking for some money. She
wants to know when you can see
"Tell her to 1e here at eleven. And
you needn't tell her, but when she
comes there'll be a policeman here
and she'll bo arrested for usury."
It was ono of the neatest swindling
games ever perpetrated. The girl
had not only lost all the money she
had in tho world, but when she be
came troublesome she was to be rail
roaded to jail for charging more than
the legal amount of interest. Fortun
ately Mary remembered tho tele
phono number, called her up and
warned her not to keep the appoint
ment. So tho little stranger escaped jail.
But sho had given up her work in
one ofllqe whilo awaiting the begin
ning- of the lessons that never came.
When chastened and miserable, she
tried to return to it; her corner of the
big- office was filled. She is working
now for a third of her former Kalary.
In her heart is a great bitterness and
in her mind a great light.
It is well for other little strangers
to know this for, as Mary said, such
things may happen.

But. as luck would have It, the de

"I might have said Smith or Jones.
