HER IDEAL I By HELEN E. (VERS. (Copyright, McClur. Newapaper Syndicat«.) After a long and boring evening, Roy finally said "Good night," re ceiving a very chilly answer on Joy N- 's part. Mrs. N- 's "Good night," was said in a pitying, apolo getic tone. After the door closed, she 1 turned to Joy. "You don't know when you're well off, Joy," she cried. "Here you have the chance to marry a young man with good prospects and who loves you. Yet you spurn hlm. I had to come In here tonight, for fear Roy woirid go to sleep, your conversation was so Interesting." It was a fine bit of sarcasm, but Joy I dtd not mind. "He Is not my Ideal, mother," she said. "The man I marry I must be better looking than he is, and 1 don,t want hlm t0 hnve « 00d P ros ' pe «, ts; be mu8t be enormously rlch -" " was certaIaly I no use to talk to Joy. I Two weeks later, Joy went to New I Hampshire for her usual autumn va I cation with her grandmother, 1 pected to have a.better time than ever I this year, because her grandmother had I written to tell her that there was a I house-party about half a mile away. The party was chiefly made up of young people I surveying her guest, look your best tonl « ht - because a " an has 3ust come ' whora we want you *° "•*** l he / atcb of the 8eas ° n ' I dear ' and as be d°c*n t care especially about any of us, we want you to see what you can do> .

King W-, who admired pretty faces exceedingly, Immediately I attached himself to her and rarely left her side during the evening, while the other guests nodded their heads and smiled knowingly. For the next few days, she was In tbe seventh heaven. Every place that sh# went - she wa * a< -' comi ' anled . by King, who proved to be wonderfully congenial. It may be added here that he was always thus with every girl he knew—It was this way that endeared him to all the feminine sex. It developed that he had a wonder« fully mellow voice and nobody but Joy I could play his accompaniments suit | ably, | J °Y went back to her grandmother's to stay there for the remaining time. King was a constant visitor, and she became more and more enraptured. At the end of her vacation Joy came home, her head completely enveloped In clouds. She did not notice Roy's ab sence until her mother, who had wait I ed for her to ask where he was. volun teered the Information that he was | away on business.
