comes in a beautiful velvet-lined

you go to the drawer, pull out your
fancy pipe, polish it with the palm of

smoke . with your best company
manners.

your favorite briar, fill her up just

the fancy pipe has been relegated to
Its glorious case for another period of
oblivion.

It'f the same with tobacco, too.
Somebody smoking a fancy brand
offers you his pouch, and just to be a
good fellow you take a pipeful (feeling
little pang of conscience as you push
the unfamiliar tobacco into your pet
pipe). And you smoke it. It may be
very good tobacco. Perhaps you can't
even decide what, if anything, is the
matter with it.
But it isn't your brand, and when
you get near the end, perhaps just a
little hastily, you knock out the fancy
tobacco and pull out your own, fear
ful lest the too-friendly pouch appear
again and you may have to refuse
gently but firmly.

afterward. Ramsey is not distin

though his pronounced dislikes are

"show" her. At a class picnic Ram

CHAPTER V.
The next morning Ramsey came Into
his father's room while Mr. Milholland
was shaving, an hour before church
time, and it became apparent that the
son had something on bis mind, though
for a while he said nothing.
Wd you want anything, Ramsey?"
"Well"
"Didn't want to borrow my razors?"
"No, sir-
air. Jlllholland chuckled. "I hardly
supposed so seriously! Shaving Is a
great nuinre and the longer you keep
away from it the better. And when
you do, you let my razors alone, young
fuller !"
"les, sir.", (Mr. Milholland's razors
v
were safe. Ramsey had already
achieved one of his own, but he prac-
tlced the art In secret.)
"What is it you really want Ram
sey?"
"I guess I don't want anything."
"Money?"
"No, sir. You gay' me some Fri
day."
Mr. Milholland turned from his mir
ror mm iookcq over tne euge or a
towel at his son. In the boy's eyes
there was such a dumb agony of Inter
rogation that the father was a little
startled.
Why, what Is It, Ramsey? Have
you " He paused, frowning and won
dering. "You haven't been getting in
to some mess you want to tell me
about, have you?"
"No, sir."
His tone was meek, but a mute dis-
tress lurked within It, bringing to the
fathers mind disturbing suspicions.
and foreshadowlngs of Indignation and
of pity. "See here, Ramsey," he said,
"If there's anything you want to ask
me, or to tell me. you'd better out with
it and get It over. Now, what Is It?
"Well It Isn't anything." .
"Are you sure?"
Ramsey's eyes fell before the severe
aod piercing gaze of bis father. "Yes,
sir.

fully: then, as his son walked slowly

his toilet in a somewhat uneasy frame
of mind. Ramsey had undoubtedlv
wanted to say something to him nd
the boy's expression had shown that
the matter In question was serious,
distressing, and, it might be, critical.
In fact it was to Ramsey. Having
begun within only the last few hours
to regard haberdashery as of vital Im
portance, and believing his father to
be possessed of the experience and au
thority lacking In himself, Ramsey had
come to get him to settle a cuestión

a great deal thereby.
Meantime, his father, rather relieved

Did you notice how neat he.Iooks this

Why, no, I didn't; not particularly.

"I never saw anything-like It be

has three neckties, but I saw him sev

have kept changing and changing. I

I'm glad he's begun to take a little
care of his appearance at last I'll
have to take a look at blm and give
him a word of praise. I suppose he'll
be In the pew when we get there."
But Ramsey wasn't In the pew; and

who were there, said thev hadn't seen

anything of bim. It was not until the
members of his family were on their
way home after the services that they
caught a glimpse of him. -
They were passing a church a little
distance from their own ; here the con

so that he was Just able to avoid pa
rading up the street in front of them
In hoarse whispers, Mrs. Milholland
chided her husband for an exclama
tion he had uttered. "John I On Sun

Why, she's got lavender tops on her

"Never fear!" said her husband, hav

Who Is It?"
I think her name's Rust," Mrs. Mil
holland Informed him. "I don't know
what her father does. She's one of
the girls In his class at school. It
would be pleasanter If he'd taken
fancy to someone whose family be
longs to our own circle."
Taken a fancy !" he echoed, hooting,
Wby, he's terrible! He looked like
a red-gilled goldfish that's flopped it
self out of the bowl. Why. he "
"I say I wish If he felt that he had
to take girls anywhere," said Mrs. Mil
holland, with the primmest air of
speaking to the point "if this sort of
thing must begin, I wish he might have
selected some nice girl ' among the
daughters of our own, friends, like
Dora Yocum, for instance.
Upon the spot she began to undergo
the mortifications of a mother who
has expected her son, Just out of in
fancy, to look about him with the eye
of a critical matron of forty-five.
Moreover, she was Indiscreet enough
to express her views to Ramsey, a
week later, producing thus a scene of
useless great fury and no little sound.
I do think It's In very poor taste
to see so much of any one girl, Ram
sey," she said, and, not heeding his
protest that he only walked home from
school with Milla, "about every other
day," and that It didn't seem any
crime to him Just to go to church with
her a couple o' times, Mrs. Milholland
went on : "But if you think you really
must be dangling around somebody
quite this much though what in the
world you find to talk about with this
funny little Milla Rust your poor fa
ther says he really cannot see and

now when your mind ought to be en

ural she wouldn't, with a father who
is just a sort of ward politician, I un
derstand, and a mother we don't know,
and of course shouldn't care to. But,
oh, Rainaey ! If you had to make your
self s conspicuous why couldn't you
be a little bit more fastidious? Your
father wouldn't have minded nearly so
much if it had been a self-respecting,
intellectual girl. We both say that if
you mutt be so ridiculous at your age
as to persist In seeing more of one girl
than another, why, oh, why, don't you
go and see some really nice girl like
Dora Yocum?"
Ramsey was already dangerously
distended, as an effect of the earlier
part "of her discourse, and the word
"fastidious" almost exploded him; but
upon this climax, "Dora Yocum," he
blew up with a shattering report and,
leaving fragments of Incoherence rlco

from the house.

supposed (by the Interested members
of the high-school class) that Ramsey
and Milla were "engaged." Ramsey
sometimes rather supposed they were

sensation partly pleasant, but mostly
apprehensive; he was afraid.
He was afraid that the day was com

CHAPTER VI
Vacation, In spite of Increased leis
ure, may bring inconvenience to people
in Ramsey's strange but not uncom
mon condition. At home his constant
air was that of a badgered captive
plaintively silent under injustice; and
he found it dlfllcult to reply calmly
when asked where he was going an
Inquiry addressed to him, he asserted,
every time he touched his cap, even
to hang It up!
The amount of evening walking he
did must also have been a trial to his
nerves, on account of fatigue, though
the ground covered was not vast. Mil-
la's mother and father were friendly
people, but saw no reason to "move
out of house and home," as Mr. Rust
said, when Milla had "callers"; and
on account of the Intimate plan of
their small dwelling a visitor's only
alternative to spending the evening
with Mr. and Mrs; Rust as well as
with ililla, was to Invite her to "go
out walking."
Evening after evening they walked
and walked and walked, usually in
company at perhaps the distance of
half a block with Albert Paxton and
Sadie Clews, though Ramsey now and
then felt disgraced by having fallen
into this class; for sometimes It was
apparent that Albert casually had his
arm about Sadie's waist This allured
Ramsey somewhat, but terrified him
more. He didn't know how such mat
ters were managed.
Usually the quartet had no destina
tion; they Just went "out walking"

One of the most famous" copies of
the Scriptures in existence Is the one
which bears the curious title, "The

According to tradition this Bible
was the work of a poor monk who
was condemned to death for some
defection, but was told that the sen

copy out on asses' skins the entire
Bible in a single night He agreed
to try to do it but finding the taRk
too great, made a compact with the
devil to exchange his soul for. the
