"George," said Leslie, "you have heard me speak about my friend Eunice Vane? I have just had a let ter from her; she is coming to pay me a visit for a couple of days, witb her two children, while her husband is away in New York. I haven't seen her for nearly six years. You know we were at college together." "Then I guess I'll have to spruce up tomorrow night," answered Leslie^ fiance, as he rose to take hie leave of her. He kissed her and put on his hat As he went down the steps Les lie looked after him with a vague die· satisfaction which she could not quite analyse. "Lucky Eunice!" she soliloquized, a little bitterly. "Here we are, both verging on thirty, and both engaged In the same month. And you have a rich husband and two bablee, while I—" She shrugged her shoulders and went back into the parlor. George and Leslie had been engaged for nearly six years. She was a i school teacher and George a lawyer ι In the same town. But Leslie earned more than George and he would not marry her—nor did she desire it— 1 until he was earning enough to sup port her at home. They had meant to be married many years before, but first George's firm had failed and he had had to set up for himself, this in volving the expenditure of all the lit tle hoard that had been accumulated so carefully. Then had come a pe ; riod of sickness, when all Leslie's sav ings had gone on hospital and* phy ; sicians' fees. Finally, just when they had begun to put something aside for furniture, a naggp-wide panic hpd cut down George's earnings to the bare minimum of subsistence, and he was only just beginning to earn a liv ing wage again. "Happy Eunice!" sighed Leslie. And then she began to understand why she was miserable that evening. It was not altogether envy of her friend. The fact was—she felt that George and she were drifting apart. There was no longer the sense of ro mance, of rapture, in their meetings. ι j_jr "Why?" Asked Leslie. And George was growing careless. He never asked her permission before pulling out that old pipe of his in the parlor. And he had said that he would have to "spruce up" for Eunice —had said it brazenly, as though ad mitting that it was not necessary to take such a measure for her! Leslie spent a miserable night. In the morning Eunice arrived with the children. Leslie was astonished at Eunice's appearance. She had always thought of her as the young, immature, rather sedate young girl with whom she had roomed at college. Instead of which she saw before her a matronly young woman, calm, self-possessed, with two children, a boy and a girl, who made Leslie's heart ache as she kissed them. They found a certain sense of em barrassment in their meeting. They were conscious that everything had changed since their college days; their ; interests had become divergent; they had grown apart in many ways. And Leslie was painfully conscious that it was she who had stood still, not Eunice. It was not until after George's visit that evening that Eunice seemed to thaw. "So that is George," she said. Then she took Leslie by the hand. "My dear, how long have you been en I gaged?" she asked. "Five years," said Leslie, rather frigidly. "Leslie, do you know that you could have been married for five years and had that much more happiness?" ask ed Eunice. Leslie began to explain the cir cumstances, the long series of misfor tunes. There was a touch of envy in her tone which was not lost upon her friend. "My dear," she answered, "I know that you have made a great mistake— I should say the great mistake." "Why?" asked Leslie. "Do you be lieve in marrying before one is in a position to do so? If George had had your husband's advantages—" "When Philip and I got married," answered Eunice, "he had just $60 in the world. And we spent that on our honeymoon. We had no furniture, he had no prospecte except those/of a poorly paid clerk. The first 'three years were a continuous strugnle. A month before Arthur was born jn· did not know where the doctor's expenses would come from. And we have been very happy all through it. Philip al ways says that If he hadn't had me he would never have reached the poeition he holds today. "If we had waited, as you have wait ed—where would we be now? Dear Leslie, do you think marriage is a thing that should come after one has made one's way in the world? Philip says that it Is part of life, not the re ward of life." Leslie hardly slept that night. And on the next day, after Eunice had gone, she was too ill to go to school. She knew now that it wae not like ly that George and she would ever marry. She had seen her face in the mirror; she had changed even more than Eunice, but instead of taking on the matronly aspect of a happily mar ried woman she bad become a queru lous-looking old maid instead. Some day George would awaken to the un derstanding of what they had missed In life; he would marry some young girl, and she—well, it would be like those horrible breach-of-promlse cases that she had read In the newspapers. She must let George go. She knew that he did not love her. She had be come merely a part of the routine of his life. A ring at the bell—George's ring! He never called at four in the after noon. Something must have occurred ' to make him leave his office at that hour. ' She fastened her hair and slipped down the stairs. George followed her into the parlor and sat down heavily. His face was unshaven, his tie sagged from his col lar; he looked thoroughly dejected. "Leslie," he said, "I have come to offer you your freedom. 1 can never marr^ you." -— "She looked at him; a new-born pity rose In her heart. How men had to struggle! She had not thought before tha^ George, too, might be as wretched Ss she. "The bank has failed," he continued, in a monotonous voice. "Every penny is gone. I am at the bottom of the ladder again. It will mean three years longer. Leslie, I can't hold you. Les lie! Why, what are you laughing about?" She laughed, and the tears In her eyes were those of happiness. She went across to George's chair and perched herself upon the arm of it, just as she used to do in the first days of their engagement. "My dear," she said, "how would you like to marry me without the houee and n^ vÎRfàië1 afi<T*the outfit and the trous seau? Do you want me, dear, or do you want these?" He leaped up and caught her hands Incredulously. "Do you mean that, Leslie?" he cried. "Why, I have never dared to make that suggestion. Do you—will you? Today?" "Tomorrow," answered Leslie, smil ing, and then a flood of happy tears blinded her eyes. (Copyright, 1913. by W. G. Chapman.) VICTORY WON BY DIPLOMACY When Mr. Thurlow Knew How to Soften the Heart of His Charm er's Mother. Mrs. Darnton,'f said William Thur low, "there is a matter which I would like to discuss with you, if I may at this time." Mrs. Darnton looked over her glass es and frowned. She \vas the secre tary of the Society for the Preven tion of Manly Independence, and she had a well defined idea of the nature of the proposition that Mr. Thurlow Wished to discuss. "Well, go on," she said in her most impressive manner, what is it?" "I love your daughter and I have reasuuis lu ueiieve iuai duo luumo my affection." "Have you dared to make love to her without first gaining my permis eion?" "No, dear lady. I have never call ed her sweetheart or darling, or any thing like that. I have merely gained the impression, owing, perhaps, to the pleasure she seemed to have in my company, that she might learn to care for me if I gained authority from you to try to win her love." Mrs. Darnton's features hardened, and she coldly asked: "What recommendation have you to offer for yourself? If you love my daughter now, how am I to be con vinced that your love will not be as evanescent—kindly mark the word—as evanescent as is the love almost every other man has for his wife at the be ginning?" "I am sure my love will not be evan escent. I shall love Geraldine always, I know. I shall never cease to worship her for her beauty. I have noticed that she takes after her mother. If I may say so, and that is a guarantee that her beauty will not fade as the years go by. If I might, with permission, try to win—" ] Geraldine came downstairs and in | terrupted them then, but the jury ! returned a verdict in Mr. Thurlow'e I favor. Owed Life to Dream. Melton Prior, the famous war art ist, always averred that he owpd his life on one occasion to warning dreams. When going out to the Zulu, war he twice dreamed that he was shot and then buried. On arriving at Durban he received a letter from hie mother telling of a dream identical with his own, and begging him not to go to the front. He obeyed her In junction, and engaged another artist to go in hie place. The unfortunate substitute was almost the first man killed In the fighting. One wonders why a warning dream was not gnuit ed him also.

NEAR DEATH BY SMOTHERING Bot j^oKsfSiu, Effects Her Deliverance. Draper, Ν C.—Mrs. Helen Dalton, of this place, says: "1 suffered for years, with pains in my left side, and would often almost smother to death. Medicines patched me up for awhile but then I would get worse again. Final ly, my husband decided he wanted me te try Cardui, the woman's tonic, so he bought me a bottle and I began using it. It did me more good than all the medi cines I had taken. I have induced many of my friends to try Cardui, and they all say they have been benefited by its use. There never has been, and never will be, a medicine to compare with Cardui. 1 believe it is a good medicine for all womanly trou bles." For over 50 years, Cardui has been re lieving woman's sufferings and building weak women up to health and strength. If you are a woman, give it a fair trial. It should surely help you, as it has a million others. Get a bottle of Caidui to-day. Write to: Chattanooga Medicine Co., Ladies' Advisory Dept., Chattanooga.

Note the clearness of the dot, even on the bottom sheet. Now make a dot by pressing the pencil into the paper, and then examine your carbon copies.
