A whimsical smile crossed his face
as he passed by tho field and caught
siKht of the mimic court scene In
progress beyond the rail feuce.
AiTayofi in a red plush cape and
seated in great grandeur under the
tree, Vera was receiving her company
ui true dignified style.
Ma? had found the letter in Mar-
cla's dross pocket.
"This Is an Invite from my friend
the queen," she was saying, nnd end
ed the pretentious declaration In a
scream of mortal terror.
U'l-a sprung to her feet. She
grabbed her little companions, one
with each hand.
Oh, hurry ! hurry !" she cried. "It'B
the mad cow loose !"
in a Hash Itolfe Durward took in
the scene, turned suddenly from trnv-
est.v to tragedy.
There was no question of the peril
of the children: he saw thnf at
glance. He reached their side aud
tore the red cape from the shoulders
of tin- terrorized Vera.
"I!nn-fiilck ! Fast!" he ordered
"get past the fence."
Then he turned, waving the rJ
token of defiance to the advancing ani
mal. As ho had hoped and expected,
It diverted its course nnd cnine lung
Inj; towards him.
Just leaping the fence, Itolfe was
i'.rimil by the bulky head of the iu-furlati-d
animal. One shnrp horn tore
a ridge clear up one forearm nnd he
landed with a wrench on the ground
beyond the fence.
Kolfe saw some neighbors take the
children home and two men capture
the tuml miinial.
The signet ring hnd slipped from
Vera's finger and he secured this. An
open letter and a photograph lay
where she bad ubaudoned It.
With a start of Incredulity Itolfe
recognized the portrait as Ids own. It
must have been secured from the vil
lage photographer. And then his
glance fell upon the open letter to
view his own nuine, a few words only
with It, but enough to Instantly fill
bis soul with the most extravagant joy.
He was overwhelmed with expres
sions of gratitude as lie reached the
house where Marcla was coddling the
frl's'btened little ones.
"I also found these," he said, hand
ing Marcla the signet ring nnd the
letter, as he had discovered It, open.
"You you read," fluttered Marcla.
"I could not help but see my name

She flushed crimson. He thrilled.
"Il.v a strange coincidence," he said,
his voice trembling, I also wrote a let

fair that you should see It."
Her hands shook as she glanced
over It. Her eyes met his. They
drooped, rut glowed.
"Do not send It !" she whispered,
and ran Into the home in happy contusion.

"Going, Arnold?" questioned Hul '
Daniels, as he stood In the suburban
real estate ollice of Young & Co., ad
dressing the manager of that branch
of a big city business.
"I'll tell you In a minute," replied
Arnold White "four, six, eight, nine,"
mid he flipped over the bnnk bills in

withal quite disconsolately "no."
i "Can't nfford it."

I are showing the white feather. And
Miss Leila Morton Is well worth the
attentions of any young man I"
"No doubt of that," half sighed Ar
nold. "In fact, that's the trouble."
There was an interruption. A cus
tomer came driving up in an automo
bile, wishing to look nt some houses
listed for sale by the office and Arnold
had to hurry away at once.
"Have you half an hour to spare,
Hal?" he inquired of hltf friend.
"Sure double that time, If I can bt
"Just keep the office open until I
return, will you?" '
Til do that, responded Hal.
Hal had not fully dropped Into th
luxurtousness of repose when there
was a visitor. He wo a bronied
faced, big-framed man with all the
marks of an outdoorjlf.e upon him.
"211. rwrid Whiter'" he spoke In

"Ah, then I will wait," said tho
stranger, seating himself. "Friend of

"That's promising," commented tho
visitor. "Contented, happy, I sup
pose?" "Well, he's In love I" laughed Hal.
"Tell me about that," rather eager
ly urged the stranger.
"No, I'm talking too much, I guett"
dissented Hal, suddenly realizing that x
he was discussing hla absent friend
too freely with a stranger.
For nearly five minutes the stranger
poured a strange tale Into the eara of -his
amazed auditor. Hal looked star
tled, then delighted.
"Capital! famous I Arnold deserves
It all I" he cried loyally. "Yes, you
need to know all. Too see, my slater"
And this time Hal Daniels found a
listener to what his sister, the fast
friend of Leila Morton, knew of her
preferences as to her many beaux,
Arnold White especially considered.
"This gentleman wishes to look over
your property," advised Hal, as Arnold
"Ah, yes," bowed Arnold. "Ons
word, Hal," he added, stepping to the
side of his friend and speaking con
fidentially: "I wish you would get
word to Miss Morton through your

party to the city tomorrow evening."
"Nonsense I" began Hal stormlly.
"No, It Isn't I haven't asked Miss

"What?" exclaimed Arnold. "Why,

coolly. "I am following out my In

"But I don't understand"

first thought was of Leila.
"By the way, Mr. White," said tbs
stranger "about this young lady Mr.

"Ernest Drake would think of your
happiness ahead of anything else," he
said. "As his representative, I give

METAL CLOTH EVENING FROCK
Fabric li Extensively Uitd for Formal
Gowns Majority of Dresses
on Straight Lines. , .
Except in dance frocks for young '
nnd slight figures, the majority of the
season's evening frocks are developed
on straight lines, with novel and In
teresting color and fabric combina
tions. Metal cloth Is extensively used. One
particularly fetching evening gown re
cently seen was made of chiffon In a
rich violet shade, with no trimming
whatever except a wide girdle of sli
ver cloth caught at one side with a
huge rosette of the same.
A gown that combined chiffon and
silver cloth featured the former In a
dull blue. The silver cloth was used
to band the chiffon slds panels of the
frock, over which were draped extra
panels of chiffon long enough to form
side trains. Woven silver braid formed
the girdle. A black velvet evening
gown was made over a sliver cloth
slip, a wide silver braid la woven de
sign serving as shoulder straps.
Blue velvet heels on silver bro
cade slippers are charming, as well aa
new. Whatever the word of fashion,
sponsoring the wearing of black satin
slipper '0'lth evening frocks this win
ter, there are runny delightful slippers
,( brocade and satin In colors.
