Dr. W. A. Carter
As Jack crossed the office on hi
wj to his desk, his eyes dwelt ten
derly on Madge's nimble fingers as
ttiey traced what he felt sure was a
note to hliu. Thinking to surprise
her, be drew nearer, and suddenly the
large writing on the sheet seemed to
rise up and assail his eyes. Willi hurt
horror be read:
"Dearest Ted: Of course I love you.
Why doubt me 7 As long as I live, I'm
yours."
He waited to read no further, but
fled to the stockroom, where hidden
behind the bale and boxes, he fought
out bis trouble and decided upon a
course of action.
"My little Ma due. whom I trusted
with my whole soul," he groaned. Her
falseness seemed impossible.
Whs this fellow Ted was he did not
know. It was enough that the girl
he loved, and who had proiulseu to
marry him, was writing such a letter
to another man.
At last he clenched his hands, and
setting his teeth, weot into the private
offlce of the manager. Six weeks t,
ba bad been offered a posit. oa cu the
road, one that would pay him a csucb
better salary, and had refuse net
wanting to leave Mig. No fce was
glad to go. and l!rn:e-i:a:ely. too. with
In two hours of his reiving :hr begin
ning of that faref-il cote, tit as oa
the train to take up :i work of oue
of the cotnaerc:: travelers wio had
suddenly been taken i'x't.
Jack did not stop to say good by to
Madge, nor did he wr.: her. f-r he
felt that tbe uM ti better.
'Perhaps If I gt away this hurt
will stop," he toid h'.mi'.f; but al
though be kept busy and In his labors
turned night Into day, sending back
o much business that the firm be
lieved they had secured the model
salesman, be could nut forget Madge
or her thousand and one appealing
ways. It was all the hardt-r because
she kept on writing to him, In the
same clear, flowing band that had
penned the fateful confession of her
love for another, begging him to let
her know the reuou for his continued
silence.
Tom, bis chum, wrote htm that
Madge looked 111.
Things lookexl black to him, al
though he had muJe such a success In
a busluess way that the office sent
far him to come home and make a
contract with the firm, and although
be would have rather remained away
forever, Jack obtryed, and once more
found himself In the same city with
Madge.
Being a salesman now, he managed
to have his Interview with the man
ager without going out among his old
associates, and so avoided Madge al
though a sight of her sunny hulr
through the open doorway turned liliu
sick at heart
Ills business outlook was extremely
bright, much lietter than he had dared
to dream of for years to come, and
yet It was a very heavy heart that he
carried with him into the little motion
picture theater, where he sought a
few moments of relaxation later on lu
the evening.
Wearily he made bit way to the
corner seat In the box where they had
always sat
Listlessly be followed the story of
the film. There was the usual quarrel
between two loves, although he reflect
ed bitterly that neither had his cau.se.
Suddenly he straightened up. The
lover received letter from the girl
with whom he had quarreled, and It
was photographed on the film.
"Dearest Ted : Of course I love you.
Why doubt meT As long as I live,
Tm yours."
As on a former occasion, Jack
stopped to read n further. He recog
nized the clear, flowing hand. It was
Madge's penmanship, that he knew,
bat he also understood that It was
Dover written to a living person. The
thought flamed through him that there
must be some heart-healing explana
tion. Realizing how his cruelty must
bave hurt her, be turned to leave,
when In the seat by his side where
be bad sat so often was Madge.
Instinctively his hand reached for
hers, and in the tender pressure giv
en and returned everything was for
gotten and forgiven.
"I saw you here," she whispered,
"and came here t sit by you."
"Darling! Hew, though, did tbey
get that letter? I saw you write it,"
he confessed, "though not Intentional
ly." "I wrote the scenario of the photo
play," she said with proper pride.
They forgot, the " audience, sitting
there together again In the happiness
of their love, and he bent over and
whispered :
"We'll be married tomorrow so you
can go out on the road with me,"
Madge nodded happily. "Of course,
for as long as I live, Tm yours," she
murmured, and this time the words
carried a joyous message to him.

It is indeed a rare occasion when
we write an advertisement of
Allslcel Office Furniture that we
do not have to retrain ourselves
from writing about the organiza
tion back of the line rather than
the products themselves. When
you once get out to Youngstown
and mingle with those "Good

stantly why "Allsteel belongs
