Pauline hummed a tuno under her
breath as sho tied the ribbons of her
Uttlo whlto shoes and reached for her
tennis racket With a swing of snowy
linen skirts she tripped down tho stairs
and out into tho golden California sun
Playing tennis by oneself U ncrcr
an entertaining pastime, but it is
good exercise, and when one lives with
a beautiful but melancholy maiden
aunt on a retired country estate cren
daily gymnastics can border ou thu
Paulino's method consisted ln sorr
ing ono or mora balls across tho net
and then dashing nround Into tho op
posite court and returning tho scrr
Ico with lightning rapidity and again
darting back to return tho stroke.
Paulino flitted back and forth with
pink checks and shining eyes. Iter loos
ened hair fell In two long braids below
her slender waist and under her
breath sho hummed tho happy littlo
tuno broken by panting breath.
Once her strong young arm sent tbo
ball sailing high over tbe tall hedgo of
Cherokee roses into the grounds of tho
adjoining estate, and it was returned
to her with such surprising swiftness
that Involuntarily alio ac.it it back
again with a cry of triumph.
Again it returned, and once more
Paulino sent it flying over tbo hedge.
There was a sharp exclamation, soft
steps on tho turf, and then over tho
dividing wall of roses appeared a
shock of sun bleached hair, a pair of
good gray eyes and a handsome tan
"Knocked me out there, littlo girl,"
grinned the young man, holding out
Paulino's hands flew to her long
braids nnd wound them ln their accu
tomed coronet Even then she did not
look a day over fifteen, whllo sho was
"I beg your pardon," said tho
stranger, his grin fading away. "I
thought you wcro a littlo girl, don''
"I'm not," explained Paulino with
dignity. "Thank you for returning tho
ball," holding out her hand. "Why, it's
not mine," she added, with a puzzled
glanco at him, "although It has lay
Initials on It"
"P. Q.V laughed ths man. "Those
are mine too. "I'm Paul Graham-1
live In tho stono house yonder," ho ex
plored. "Your ball disappeared, and I
substituted this one."
"I kow.M said Paulino, with a shy
smile. "Pro peeped at tho bouse
through tbe trees. It looks very lone
ly and mysterious with Its shuttered
"They are all wide open now, and If

He smiled Ingratiatingly. "I'vo heard
there used to be a gate ln this Chero
kee hedge. I wonder where It Is."
.Paulino flushed delicately and looked
away with embarrassed eyes. "I be
Hove tho gate was down ln the ro
garden. It is nailed up now and over
grown with roses."
"Why was it nailed up? Do yon
know?" he asked bluntly.
She shook her bead slightly. "I have
often wondered. Onco I asked my
aunt. Miss Qreye, but she never an
awored my question. A gate between
two gardens always seems so friendly.
Don't you think bo?"
Ho nodded. "This used to bo our
homo, you know tho stono house, 1
mean but it Is many years since we
lived here. Slnco I was a little boy T
distinctly recollect that gato In the
hedge, and I havo always retained a
vision of a stately young womau with
jet black balr and a coldly beautiful
faco. who walked In a wilderness ot
roses on tho other slda of tbe gate.
"That must have been Aunt Ruth,"
said Paulino. "Only her hair Is like
suow. But sho is still beautiful and
so cold. I wish she were not"
"I'm taking a holiday. I wish your
aunt would Invito mo over to play ten
nis. Perhaps sho remembers me," sug
"I'm sure she would Invite you If she
anew you were here," sold Paulino
politely. "1 must run In now. She
would scold If sho know I had talked
so long with a stranger. Dut It's
awfully dull here. That Is my only
excuse." She moved slowly away and
nodded n friendly farewell.
Tho door of tho library was ajar, and
Paulino pushed It gently open and
Seated r a flat desk was Ruth
Greye. In the subdued light of the
dimly lighted room sho looked like i
marble statue. Her gown was white,
and above It bcr white throat arose ln
a stately column to support her beau
tlful bead. Her face waa lovely ln
plte of its pallor and crowned with
soft messes of prematurely whitened
hair. Her brows formed straight black
lines, and tbe dark lashes and browa
eyes were drooped over the desk. One
white hand gilded smoothly across tho
paper as aha wrote.

"Pauline," she said la her alow cos
tralto, "1 have instructed Janes te
lay out a new court on the north tide
of the house, in tbe meantime please
do not play tennis."
"Why not?" asked Pauline boldly.
"Because 1 desire It" returned ner
aunt haughtily. "That should be rea
son enough, Pauline, but 1 will add
that the owners of the house next door
havo returned, and I forbid any one
of my household having communica
tion with them."
"1 am sorry." said Pauline calmly,
"but I hav- been talking with the son.
"What do you mean? Where did you
meet him?" demanded Miss Greye
In a few words Pauline rotated the
Incident which had led to her acquaint
anco with young Grabam. "Ho said

I was engaged to marry him ho was a'

Pauline, startled by this sudden con
fidence, knew not what to say. Mak
ers of boaks and publishers were re
moto beings who rarely strayed lnte
her practical littlo world. Still, she
longed to comfort tbe troubled woman.
"Perhaps be laughed because was
It n humorous poem. Aunt Hutu?" ahs
"Humorous!" scoffed Miss ireyo. "It
was called 'Love's Dirge.'-
"Oh." sold Paulino faintly. "I have
no doubt It was a beautiful poem."
"It was." admitted the poetess brief
ly. "After that, of course, everything
tvas ended between Walter and me. I

left tho room and went upstairs.
In the Ibrary Ruth Grcyo stood
with down bent bead, her eyes fixed
on tbo rug at her feet "Tbo roses of

thcro wero tears In her eye.
At tho end of six weeks tbo repairs
on the stone house were about com
pleted. Fattier and son bad overseen
the regeneration of tbo neglected es
tate until It verily bloomed as ths
roses that crowded It. Paul Graham
tind registered time by his encounters
with Paulino Greye.
They hud met many times. Four
times he had pasjied her pony cart as
his motor whizzed by. Then he bad
tint! of tho cor as an unsociable
means of locomotion and mounted a
horse. Often ho had overtaken her
equipage and ridden slowly besldo her
as they talked, for Pauline bad de
cided sho would avail herself to Miss
Orpye's permission nnd continue her
acquaintance with tho most Interest
ing young mau sho bad over met
Their acquaintance ripened quickly,
and one day when Paulino returned
home and saw tho reflection of her
own happy face in tho mirror she
blushed ns she realized she bad learn
ed tho most beautiful thing ln tho
world. After that she did not drive.
Sho shyly kept to tbo northern grounds
or dreamed over n book ln tho wide
Paul haunted tbe roads restlessly.

trust himself to see much ot her, and

Ono gloriously !eautlful morning
Itutb Greye arose from a sleepless
couch and walked slowly umong the
dew drcuched roses lu her gurdea.
She stopped uow and tbcu to inhale
tho fragrance of a Cloth of Gold roso
or to break u tiny cluster of half open
ed buds. Suddenly she en mo to the
place where tbe hedgo had overgrown
the rustic gate. Sho stopped abruptly
and looked with startled eye-.
The hedge had been carefully trim

ed from its fastenlugs, swung Idly
with tho light breeze, Ituth moved
close to the hedgo uud burled her face
In tho sweet smelling roses.
Thero wus a Ann step on the path,
and sho looked up quickly to ineot tho
glance of Walter Grnhnm ou tbo other
sldo of tho rustle pile. Her breath,
came quickly, and he summoned all
ber pride aud fortitude to steel her
heart against her former lover.
His hand was on tbo swinging- gate.
'You have opeued it at last, Ituth,"
he said In a low tone. "Did you open
It for me after ull these years?"
Shu did not auswor. Sho was look
