WOMAN’S
WORLD
The man who thinks he is a successful
student of feminine psychology says that
the reason most girls look so serious now
adays is that women are beginning to re
alize and appreciate their . own value,
importance and responsibility. “The girl
who wants to do a little simpering or
giggling on her own account must get
away from the young woman of her
age,” he says, “and seek out some elderly
women to giggle and simper with her.
“Most old ladies are merry, but their
granddaughters are as solemn as owls,
solemn over their games, their books,
their studies, and what used to be con
sidered their amusements—piano playing
and fancy work. Everything must be
scientific to them, and they plunge in so
deeply that they have only time to swim
and no leisure for nonsense.
“Incidentally they aeliieve more with
less fuss than the old-time girl who sang
at her work, laughed at her play and
spent energy she might have kept for
study giggling and prattling with her
beaux.
“Personally I don’t care for the
Cheshire cat expression on any woman’s
face, but I think every man warms to
the girl who smiles with judgment, not
too often and always at the right time.
Every woman does not possess a beauti
ful smile, but most girls have white teeth
and red lips, and if a little art is mixed
with good nature the average man will
think when you are smiling at him that
he is the special and particular individual
who makes you look so merry and ami
able.
“Iu story books pretty girls always
emiled. and only termagants and blue
stockings looked serious. Heroines were
not always happy, but even when they
were in the depths of woe they managed
to scare up a ‘sad, sweet smile.’ But
now it is different; most girls are tre
mendously serious, and even little girls
in pinafores go around with faces as
long as a wet Sunday.”
Now, when I hear a man talking in
this strain I feel like calling him a pessi
mistic donkey, then projecting him with
lightning like speed into -the midst of a
group of up-to-date girls whilst they are
engaged in games of golf, tennis, basket
bail or any of the numerous forms of
exercise to whieh they are so thoroughly
devoted.
A happier, merrier, gayer heart than
the American girl’s cannot be found,
and only a cross grained cynic with ad
vanced liver disease could discover such
a condition of affairs as given in the
above description. It is through this
abandon and utter lack of restraint, boy
ish in its intensity, that the girl of today
has made such giant strides in physical
culture.
Solemnity and physic are thrown to the
dogs, and we cannot look at these chil
dren of the golden age for women with
out a sense of real pride in the splendid
development of their bodies. _
* * *
The season is at hand when all sorts of.
little improvements demand to )>e made
in the home, and the woman"who really
tries to develop her latent talent for “tin
kering,” as she calls it, will achieve as
tonishingly successful results, making
many useful, artistic and delightful ad
ditions without the bother and expense
of calling in an artisan.
The average business man is seldom a
good household tinker, hut his wife is
every day proving that she can drive a
nail straight and’’evolve great things
with the assistance of very inadequate
top’s.
Some of the desirable additions that
may he made by the enthusiastic femi
nine tinker may be suggested.
Window seats are easily made for win
dows where the inside shutters fold back
into the frame, coming down to within a
foot of the floor, as in parlor windows, i
Kail a block against the side boxing just
below the sill and on these cleats rest a
board about 12 or 15 inches wide, which
you have previously padded and covered
with a suitable material.
Children enjoy these window seats, and
when there is a cushion at one end and
a potted plant at the other they give, a
distinctively decorative touch to a room.
It is quite within the tinker’s ability,
too, to put a row of book-shelves in be
tween two wall projections, to stain or
paint them, fasten a brass rod across the
edge of the top shelf, holding a velour
eurtaiu in some soft, rich color, and taj
place some “modern antiques” and choice
volumes to the best advantage.
But when the shelf idea begins to work
its fascination it opens up untold possi
bilities.
A corner may be decorated most effec
tively with three graduated triangular
shelves, the top one the largest and the
lowest one quite small.
Then, again, a door shelf when “treat
ed” right makes a good point in the
room. Brass ornaments, a beaten
plaeque and a candlestick look particu
larly well coming, as they do, immedi
ately above the deep tones of the por
tiere.
A shelf over a window gives a quaint
colonial effect when filled with old blue
or ordinary willow-ware pottery.
These shelves are very easy of accom
plishment by the home tiiiEBr if she gets
the side rests of iron from the hardware
store, but she , will find that to saw
carved wooden supports is a little diffi
cult to manage with simple tools.
Another convenience is a.window, beard
for the nursery—a wide board the length
I of the sill, attached to it by small iron
hinges, so that it may hang down ngaingt
the wail when not wanted for drawing,
painting or pasting pictures in scrap
books. A slender strip of wood is also
hinged under the window, to the chair
boarding, and supports the window desk
when in position for work.
One of the most useful contrivances
the home tinker can make is a little
bench about a foot wide and three feet
long, supported ou end pieces about 19
inches high. It will be found the great
est comfort when placed across the lap
of a sick person in bed to rest the tray
of dishes upon, taking the weight from
the limbs, so that one may move without
upsetting the food.
Paint it red, so that it will contrast
cheerfully with the napery and china.
Nothing that requires so little work
and trouble as this is could give the satis
faction it does when iu use. Make one
and see for yourself.
. * .
Speaking of crepes, does every one
know that the attractive designs to be
found in the cheap thirty-five cent cotton
Japanese crepes are to be had in thin
gauzy crepes at seventy-five cents a
yard?
Some of the silks, while having the
brocaded patterns in floral designs, are
quieter, showing no gay colors, but dull
shades which present a slight contrast.
There is a blue design on a steel gray,
for instance.
The newest combs are certainly de
signed with sortie idea of comfort, for the
rims are rounded down in the centre to
fit about the flat knot on the top of the
head. Even the largest comb, intended
to keep up stray “scolding locks,” is
curved after the same fashion.
On^ean have costumers to match one’s
brass bedstead. There is always an in
clination to explain that a costumer is
one of the tall clothes trees which were
old-time pieces of furniture, and which
have been brought out recently, and,
proving convenient, are used considera
bly,. .
Japanese helmets are other bargains
on the market, and at a time when peo
ple are thinking of cosy corners or the
substitutes for them and of all things
decorative. The helmets'are of lacquer,
with decorations in gold, some of them
having funny little pads inside for the
head to rest against comfortably. Hel
mets these things are called, but they are
more in the form of shade hats. There
is a touch of color in many of them, the
inside frequently being of a bright shade
of red.
. • .
No description of dinner toilettes
would be complete without attention to
the gloves which are being worn at the
best dinner tables, says the Philadelphia
“Inquirer.”
That the gloves are removed for din
ner goes without saying, and it is one
of the features of the dinner, this pulling
off of the fine gloves, for at very cere
monious dinners they are worn into the
dining-room, and removed at the table.
At a Newport dinner, a little while
ago, the guests wore gloves, but removed
them before going to the dining-room.
•Mrs. Cornelius Vanderbilt, Jr., never
takes off her gloves, but slips her fingers
out of them and tucks the hands up into
the wrist of the gloves, leaving the long
arms of the gloves on.
But in the decoration of the dinner
glove a great deal of thought is. spent.
The backs are encrusted with seed pearls
and one of the newest gloves has the
back embroidered with a monogram.
Those who prefer the quiet glove can
have the jeweled button with the mono
gram on.
Glove clasps in diamonds are not snch
great novelties these days, for they are
gradually creeping into every jewel case.
The set of gold buttons, with a little dia
mond in the middle, are not extravagant
innovations, for they can be used again
and again and, truly, they add a great
deal to the beauty of the glove. The best
colors. Dame Fashion says, are gloves
in pastel pink, pearl blue, mode color,
peach, light bisque, cream, cafe au lait,
champagne yellow and corn color.
The tones must be very delicate unless
black gloves are worn, and in that case
they must be in suede, dull and of very
thin, fine quality. The suede glove, in
black, is stitched with a color and made
elaborate for dinner use.

A delightful person to liaveiabout you
is one who persistently sees the silver
lining to all domestic clouds. He should,
of course, do his best to prevent the
clouds from coming, bat when they are
there and cannot be helped, it is the
pleasantest way to make as light of them
as possible, says an exchange. The
fox, who quickly decided that the grapes
lie could not reach were “sour” and
walked away to look for others, was
a philosopher, whose attitude was a prac
tical application of the good old French
proverb, “If you can’t have what you
want, you must want what you have.”
Try to think well of a’J you possess,
whether it be your talents and gifts or
your worldly belongings. This is au at
titude not only comfortable to you, but
agreeable to others, nnless, indeed, it is
carried too far into the realm of unsym
pathetic self-conceit. The person who
radiates an atmosphere of content is by
far a pleasanter companion than oiie
who is analytic and cynical—dissatisfied
.with himself and others, ,
TABLE MATS.
Pretty and Useful Achievements of

Table mats done in burned leather
prove a popular addition to the ama
teur's achievements, says a writer in
the Household. There is a wide choice
of materials, even while one must care

which do great injury to the platinum

In executing the design herewith given
use the ooze if you Intend only to burn
and the “oak" Jf you wish to add color.
Stretch the skin tightly upon a draw
ing board or pine table and fasten
down with thumb tacks. Describe up
on it with compasses a circle sixteen
inches in diameter and within it an
other three inches smaller to mark the
inner edge of the border. Place the
traced pattern upon it so that its' point
Just touches the circumference of the
outer circle and transfer carefully with
blue impression paper, starting with
the outer line, which bounds the de
sign, and work inward.
With the combination point and a
slow, free stroke burn in outline the
full blown primrose, which is the cen
tral unit of each sixth of the hexagon.
Here and there vary the weight of the
line to give a suggestion of texture
and burn the dark spots in the center
with a succession of parallel lines. The
long cup of the primrose should be
done in a little heavier line and shaded
with short oblique lines where it shows
beneath the petals. With several
strokes, all following the same direc
tion, trace the midribs of the leaves,
mgking them wider at the hem than
at the apex. Then outline the leaves.
The smaller irregular veins demand a
light, broken stroke, which becomes
stronger as it approaches its parent
vein, into which it must flow with a
continuous curve. Let the shading in

If “oak finished” leather is used and
color desired, mix turpentine with the
oil colors as you paint to thin and dry
them.
Grape Juice.
For grape juice wash, drain and
stem the grapes, put in a deep agate
or porcelain kettle, mash well with a
wooden potato beetle and heat slowly
until- they begin to simmer. Have
ready a number of straining cloths or
bags made of three thicknesses of
cheesecloth and wrung out of warm
water. Put about two quarts of the
hot pulp In each anf hang up to drip.
When no more juice drops from the
bags, squeeze as dry as possible, keep

ready some Warm sugar sirup made by
boiling two pounds of sugar in a pint
and a half of water for five minutes.
To the clear juice add sufficient of the
sugar to pleasantly sweeten. Fill bot
tles or jars with this juice, place in a
canner, with the covers or corks be
side them, and process for forty min

an hour. Before removing from can

and tighten as the grape juice cools.
If corks are used.'tie down next day

A PISHING
INTERLUDE
By E. W. MAYO...
GotttUit. IM2. to f. W. Mayo
MASON took down his cher
ished steel fly rod from its
resting place hgainst theToof
of his shack and started for
the landing.
‘I’m going to explore that little
brook wo found yesterday,” he an
nounced to White.
“Oh, yes,” chuckled White; “wonder
fully attractive brook, Isn’t it? You
didn’t notice that young woman from
Judge Vantine’s camp rowing over in
that direction, I suppose?”
“She did?” inquired Mason In appar
ent surprise, straightening up from the
task of depositing fish basket and pad
dles in his canoe.
“Oh, no, of course she didn’t, and of
course you wouldn't have planned to
explore your creek if you had seen her.
Still,” sarcastically, “I wouldn’t let
that spoil a day’s sport. I’d go right
along if I were you. If you happen to
run across her, she won't notice you.
She never has, and you’ve tried it on
long enough.”
• Uh, shut \ip, white, said Mason
testily. “If I really wanted to meet the
girl, there's nothing to prevent my
Jumping into a boat and rowing over
to Vantine’s, is there? The Judge is an
old friend of father’Sf and he’d intro
duce me in a minute.”
“Of course in that case she couldn’t
help herself,” observed White aggra
vatingly. “But I didn’t mean to stir
up your injured feelings. I suppose it
is a sore subject with you.”
“Look here!” cried Mason angrily.
“If that girl has really gone over to
Cherock, I’ll row her home just to
show you fellows!”
“Bet you $10 you won't,” said White
sententiously, raising himself on his
elbow.
“Done,” responded the other as he
pushed off from the landing. “I’ll row
around this side of the island so that
you can see.”
There was just a light ripple on the
water and just a faint breath of cool
summer fragrance coming down from
Graves mountain as Rod Mason drove
his canoe across the lake in the direc
tion of Cherock creek, which was
reached through a tangled maze of
deadwood. The exercise brought a
glow of color into his handsome face
and dissipated the mental annoyance
caused by his recent conversation.
“I ought not to have been so hasty,”
he reflected, “but uow I’m in for it. I
suppose I’ve got to see it through—
that is, if I can. If I don’t, I’ll never
hear the last of it. I wonder what she
is like anyway.”
It was perhaps an hour later that
Miss Elizabeth, or, as she was known
to her intimate friends, Bess Elliot,
fancied she heard a slight noise as of
something moving through the bushes
on the higher bank of the stream
above the spot where she stood. She
glanced up, but, seeing nothing, set it
down to one of the squirrels or other
woods creatures that are always stir
ring and turned her attention once
more to the task of persuading, the
trout from the pool beside which she
was standing.
The spot was one to which Miss Eliz
abeth came frequently, as much for its
natural beauty as for the good fishing
It usually afforded. It was an idyllic
forest glade. The little mountain
brook, which farther up idled along
under dense alders or tumbled riotous
ly over piled up bowlders, here left its
higher level and slipped noiselessly
down a smooth slide some twenty feet
in length between borders of mossy
rock to join the pool below. The steady
flow of the waters, for centuries per
haps, had worn away the borders of
the pool itself to perfect smoothness
and had given it the appearance of a
big natural basin. Ancient trees leaned
above the water hole from all sides,
making a bower through which only a
glance could be caught of the canopied
blue sky above.
The scene needed only a touch of hu
man life to make It perfect, and this
requirement was abundantly satisfied
by Miss Elizabeth herself as she stood
on a round topped rock, sending her
flifis skimming over the surface of the
pool with the graceful movement of the
skilled angler. As she stepped from
one point to another with the freedom
Imparted by high boots and a short
outing skirt she seemed a sprightly,
self contained girl, who would be like
ly to hold her own at any outdoor
sport or in the more subtle contests of
the drawing room. Her costume of
dark blue suited the surroundings and
set off to advantage the somewhat un
ruly mass of blond hair beneath the
white tourist hat. The front brim of
the hat, turned dowii to shade her
wide gray eyes, gave the oval face a
piquant look and suggested that Miss
Elizabeth was a jolly person as well as
a very decided one.
She had just drawn a quarter pound
trout from the depths of the pool and
deposited him in the flsh basket slung
across her shoulders when suddenly
the peaceful quiet of the scene was
broken.
There was the crackle of a snappiug
branch above. « sudden exclamation
and before Miss Elizabeth’s astonished
gaze a young man came flying down
the long slide with anything but a
graceful or dignified appearance. His
arms and legs were wildly brandish
ing, his cap was gone and the fish bas
ket trailing behind him was spilling
Its cargo along the way. One hand
still grasped the fly tod, and on the end
of the line, describing a wonderful cir
cle In the air, was a fine big trout.
It all happened so quickly that Miss
■ f V’ - - ■ v
Elizabeth was able to rase in'no more
than these details before the wild de
scent of the ui\expeoted intruder ended
'in the.pool, while the trout, intercept
ed itt4ji| flight, was left hanging from
a projecting limb and making vigorous
flops in a fruitless endeavor to be free.
Miss Elliot did not scream, although
she was decidedly startled. She mere
ly cast aside her rod and peered anx
iously into the pool for the reappear
ance of a head. It popped up in a
moment, rather wet and bedraggled,
and its owner after a preliminary gasp
and a look about started slowly for the
shore.
“Can’t I help you?” ventured Miss
Elliot. “Can you get out?”
"I’m all right," answered the head
as composedly as possible under the
circumstances. “What became of the
trout?”
“He’s up there,” responded the lady,
pointing to the limb from which the
red spotted captive was still swinging.
The head turned slowly in the direc
tion indicated, and the expression of
the face brightened visibly as the pro
portions of the fish were observed. The
pleased look was succeeded immediate
ly by one of anxiety as the trout made
an unusually lively flop that threat
ened to release him.
“Do you think you could get him
down?” inquired?the immersed one as
he prepared to resume his shoreward
course, “it would be a shame to lose
him.” /
“Oh, yes; certainly,” replied Eliza
beth from the bank, “if, you ate quite
sure that you can get out alone.”
It mpst have required a heroic effort
to decline aid so charmingly proffered,
but the occupant of the pool replied
manfully that he would be on shore in
a jiffy. ^Thereupon Miss Elliot turned
her attention to the trout and by dint
of standing on tiptoe and using a
crotched stick finally succeeded In
drawing him from above the stream
and depositing him safely in her bas
ket. *■
“He must weigh nearly three pounds,”
she called out. “How ever did he”—
The question died on her lips as she
turned toward the pool and saw that
the person to whom it was addressed
was not only still in the .water, but
having difficulty in keeping afloat.* The
bank was steep and, being of smooth
rock, afforded no hold to the man strug

gling in the water, who slipped back
as often as he attempted to climb out.
The chill of the pool, fed by mountain
springs, evidently was exhausting him,
for his movements - were becoming
weaker. Miss Elliot took in the situ
ation at a glance and acted upon It in
stantly.
_ “Keep up! I’ll help you!” she called
and ran swiftly down the bank to the
point where the young man w-as des-,
perately treading wrater to keep him
self on the surface. Casting about in
search of something with which to aid
him, her eye fell upon a small dry
branch lying on the ground. She caught
it up and after testing its strength to
make sure that it would bear his weight
extended one end to him, crying:
“Now catch hold and hang on.”
The swimmer obeyed silently; he had
no breath loft for words. Elizabeth
braced her feet behind a projecting
rock and threw her whole weight back
ward. It was no easy matter to move
the 175 pounds at the other end of the
pole, but Elizabeth was a remarkably
strong girl, and with' the aid of such
efforts as her companion was able to
make in his own behalf he wap brought
to a resting place on the bank. He lay
there silently for a few moments tp re
cover his breath and strength.
“Thanks, awfully,” ho said presently,
.clambering up and shaking the water
from his dripping person like a big dog.
“You saved, me from a watery grave.”
Miss Elizabeth smiled sympathetical
ly. “My service was hardly so great as
that,” she answered, “but such as it
was you $re very welcome to it. How
In the world did it happen?”
A guilty color came into the young
man’s face, but apparently Miss Elliot
was not noticing him.
“Oh, I was rather too anxious for
that big fellow,” he said as indifferent
ly as lie could, “and I came a cropper
on the wet moss at the top of the slide.
But if I’m not mistaken that trout was
worth the experience.”
The conversation was thus diverted
to a new channel, and some moments
were occupied In admiring the trout,
estimating its weight and wondering
how so fine a specimen had strayed up
the brook—matters in which both of
them evinced a sportsmanlike interest.
The diversion gave Mason an oppor-,
tunity ta regain the presence of mind
which had deserted him during his re
cent exciting experience.
“I’m afraid that I have forgotten the
i formality of making myself known,”
he said at the first lull in the discus
sion of the flsh. “I am Roderick Ma
■ son of New York, and I am staying at
i the tYitch bay camp.”
“Under the circumstances it jvould

oe superfluous "or me to say mat I am/
pleased to meet you, Mr. Mason,” re
plied the young woman. Her self pos
session had not been Impaired at any
point in the Interview, and Rod men
tally observed that she must be accus
tomed to having young men rain down
on her in this unconventional manner.
“I am Miss Elliot—to be more exact,
Miss Elizabeth Elliot of New York—
and I am staying with my uncle. Judge
Vantine.”
Rod made, haste to claim his ac
quaintance with Judge Vantine. He
was not rewarded with any intimation
that Miss Elliot had ever heard of his
existence, however, and the conversa
tion drifted into the conventional chan
nels of a discussion of the camp, the
lake, the fishing and the scenery.
“I’m afraid I have spoiled the fishing
here for the day,” said Rob apologet
ically, observing that his fair compan
ion was gathering up her belongings
with the evident intention of depart
ing. “My sudden appearance must
have sent them all scurrying under the
rocks,”
“It really doesn’t matter,” returned
Miss Elliot. “I should have gone in a
few minutes af*any rate. I dare say
you know,the lake's stormy moods.”
“You must let me row you home”—
began Rod and stopped abruptly. The
! thought of the wager with White had
i passed entirely from his mind until
I this remark recalled it.and made him
; feel exceedingly uncomfortable.
“I shall manage very well by my
! self,” said Miss Elliot, a trifle coldly as
| she noticed the sudden interruption of
! his remark; “otherwise I should not
have come out alone. If it gets too
rough, they will send the launch over
I for me.
“If you take my advice,” she contin
I ued, breaking the silence that ensued,
| “you will go straight home, too, or
! that cold bath will result in making
i you ill. You have a boat here, I sup
! pose. You could hardly have come by
I ballootir”
Rod felt that the cool treatment he
was receiving discounted the effect of
his impression, but he decided that it
was wise to give heed only to the lat
ter part of her remark.
“My canoe is just around the point
here;” he said hastily. “It’s the place
where I usually land. There are fewer
logs there.” *
After tliis unblushing falsehood the
conversation lagged once more, and
Rod went to the rescue of his fish bas
ket, which had floated some distance
toward the outlet of the stream and
was lodged against an obstructing log.
When ho returned, he said, with a note
of genuine anxiety in his voice:
“I don’t want to offend you, Miss El
liot, but I really wish that you would
let me row you home. It’s blowing
half a gale outside. If you will con
' sent to that,” he went on eagerly, “I
should like very much to borrow the
boat to row myself back to camp. You
kuow a canoe isn’t much good iu rough
water.”
Miss Elliot mounted a high rock and
looked lakeward, where the spray from
the tumbling waves was dashing over
the fallen timber of the flow.
“It does seem to be rather rough,”
she said, listening to the booming sound
that came from below. “Is your canoe
small?”
“Very small,” said Rod unflinching
ly—“a mere cockle. I was a fool to
come out in it.”
“Perhaps it would be better for both
of us to wait for the launch,” went on
Elizabeth.
"I don’t believe that is necessary,”
he answered quickly. “They can’t tell
from the point how rough it is over
here. Your boat will ride as well as
the launch anyway, and the pull
across is just what I ueed to warm me
up and keep my muscles from getting
stiff.”
Miss Elliot seemed convinced that
his selfish presentation of the case left
no room for argument. She said noth
ing further while the boat was being
made ready, but took her place In the
Stern and, paddle in hand, steered it
through the winding c^u-se that led to
the lake, while Rod pulled leisurely at
the bars. Arriving inside the final bar

“It’s all right,” said Rod cheerily.
“We can take them head on. You
needn’t steer any more. Put up your
paddle and hold on. It will toss us a
little at first.”
Miss Elliot obeyed this mandate si
lently. The commanding tone he used
now was very different from his first
confusion, and she decided that he was
less of a boy than she had at first be
lieved. He did not look boyish as be
prepared to do battle with the gale.
He had removed his coat, and she
could see the play of his muscles be
neath his outing shirt as he bent for
ward and with powerful strokes sent
the boat flying to meet the waves.
When they struck the first swell, the
little craft seemed fairly to be thrown
In air. Then it went down, down, a
sickening distance, and then up again.
It seemed as though the storm was
tossing them in a watery blanket for
its own amusement, and it was hard to
believe that they were making any
progress, but with each wave the oars
took the water straight and true, and
the pounding noise of the breakers
against the log boom began to recede
behind them.
Elizabeth saw that Mason was head
ing straight across the lake, where big
] gtr and wilder waves were waiting for
them. She was not frightened, but she
knew that it must be terribly hard
work pulling against such a gale.
“Don’t you think you had better row
around the island?” she screamed. “It’s
Quieter there.”
Rod shook his head and rowed
otraignt on. ue was tninning tnat he
would rather face shipwreck than rowt
around the island, where White wouldj
see them and think that he had done
this for the wager.
Various thoughts had been coursing
rapidly through the not particularly
quick mind of Mr. Roderick Mason as
he struggled across the lake toward
the Stony point camp. He thought
that he was a fool and a cad to make
a bet about a girl like Miss Elliot.
Still, he was not sorry he had made it
since it led to meeting her. He ear
nestly hoped, however, that she might
not hear of the bet. He did not be
lieve that she would approve of it. She
evidently was not like most of the
girls he had met. His complimentary
remarks she had taken as a matter of
course. She had cut short the high
flown speech of thanks he had intend
ed to make after she had pulled him
out of the water. As well as he could
remember she had exhibited vastly
more interest in the big trout than she
had in him> It didn’t seem to Rod that
this was exactly as it should be. In
truth. Miss Elliot awed him a little,
but he was decidedly of the opinion
that she was the most attractive girl
he had ever met.
It was slow work crossing the lake.
The task of rowing occupied Rod fully,
and the gale made conversation impos
sible. When they finally arrived at
Judge Vantine’s landing, a feeling of
constraint seemed to have come over
both of them.
“It was very good of you to bring me
home, Mr. Mason,” said Elizabeth as
she stepped on shore. ‘Wour oarsman
ship is perfect. I could never have
made the trip alone, and but for your
timely appearance I should -prbbably
be mqking frantic signals of distre ss
from the other side instead of being
safe in camp. I hope your accident
won’t make you ill.”
“There isn’t the slightest danger,”
said Rod, a little stiffly. “The row was
just what I needed. I feel first rate
now."
He passed the rod and fish basket
out to her slowly. He was wondering
if she wouldn’t say that she hoped to
see him again, but apparently she did
not think of that. She took the things
from his hands and, opening the bas
ket, reached his three pound trout to
ward him. Rod drew back a little.
“Won’t you keep it?” he asked and
was surprised to notice that bis re
quest sounded timid. “It’s more yours
than mine- anyway, because it surely
would have escaped if you hadn’t tak
en it down from the limb.”
“Oh, I don’t think so. I couldn’t'do
that,” she said hastily, “not after the
loss of the rest of your catch.
