Tbe little volume of vcirrs entitled "To Lalape" tunde qnite a stir In tha lit- rary world. One critic of note said thfi t tt was instinct with classic Kriice, another that i. was informrd by the true spirit rf P.ellns. o third that it had a wbiff rf iiymtttns. a fourth that it was hardly snitable for family reading. i:r.d on tho strength of all this lauda tion "To Ltilage" was a succppb, nnd evcrsl copirs were bo ja fide sold to complete etrnnKcrs. Imagine, thon, the bitterness of heart with which Adrian Pottles, tha giftrd nnthur. enw hiraMf compelled to uiaintain strict nncnymtty nnd to conceal from the world thirsting to know him that he was the "A. P." whose initials appeared in old English letters on tho title pn-ro. Yet be did not hesitate, for he knew that if his nnclc. Mr. Thomas Putties of Clapham Common, discovered that he wrote not only verses which was bad bnt nimitory vcracs which was ulro cions bis means of present livelihood and prerpects if futnre nGlurncc won Id vutieh luto thin air. For Mr. Potties was a man of Rtrict views, itnd. wheth er cne regarded this world or the next, there could be no question fhitt a bnni clerk of evangelical connections com mitted a grave fault iu writing love pocir.d So pocr Adrian lr.;l to multo up his mind to rrir.uin unknown and to hold bis teniae even when he heard that nn other man had been clniuiiuK the au thorship of "To Lali:e. " Luckily, per haps, he failed to find ont who this mis creant was. cr prnbahly his i;ic.:.nnation would have overce-me his prndence and he would r.t uny cent have claimed Lis own The secret wnn well kept, nnd Adrian teceived the ncur.l check at Christmas lime, end with it tho uanal invitation to spend tho f?ttive reason with bin un cle and to rrin v.itU him his yonng friend fptr Allison, to whom old Mr roltlc b;;d t.ikin a Kreat fancy. Peter was a man of many enguKcments, but oni;l',t after as !;e was and proclaimed liinistif to he he tcnicuibured the pood chesr at Mr. Puttlua' nnd accepted tha invitation. They went down together, Adrian bewailing bis bard fortuno and denouncing the iuipcstcr, Peter warmly sympathizing, bnt counseling continued ti leu ce and prndencc. "Ab. if I conld only claim it I" cried Adrian, opening Lis Gladstone bag nnd gaziu? fondly at half a dozen cent, loan copies oí "To Lulage. " "I sbonld be tira lion .f tha tensón, Peter. " Peter emiled and rhook bis bead. "A fortune is better than fame, Adrian, " said bn. For a dny or two all went well at Qapbuxi The eld gentleman was in tho beet of tempers, nnd the two young men did their bent to keep bim in it, indorsing nil bis views as to the lax morality and disgraceful tone which pervaded modern literature and modern rocicty, und when they bad done their duty in this way they rewarded them selves by going ia nest door and having tea with Dcra ChatUrton, a yonng lady whom tbey both thought charming. In deed Adrian thought bei so charming that, after it short acquaintance, ho sent her a copy of "To Lalagti" with the anther's kind regards. Now, Miss Dora Chatterton adored genius, She bad thought both Adrian nnd Peter Tery pleasant young men: she bad per ceived that they both thought her a very pleusunt young woman, and he bad been rather puzzled to know which of them she would, in a certain eveut, roake np bar mind to prefer "To La lago" settled the question. It was the gifted anther A. P. who deserved her love, and A. P. obviously stood, not for Peter Alliaon. bnt for Adrian Pottles. The very next morning she called early at Mr. Pottles'. Khe fonnd bim alono. Tho boys, bo explained, bad gone for a wulk. Dora was disappointed, bnt failing tho author biiuwlf the was con tent to ponr her praiaea into the ears of an appreciative and proud ancle. Hho did so. exprebuing immense admiration for Adrian' mo;kty in not having told Mr. Pottles of bis achievement. "Humph!" said Mr Pottles. "Let rue see these er things. " Tho effect of "To Lulage" on Mr Pottles was surprisii rc ai.d particularly ao to LHrn. In less than ten minutes sho found herself being shown tbe door and intrusted witb a letter to ber brother in w hich Mr Pottles stated that she bad been reading wicked bocks and ought, in bis opinion, to be sent to ber own room for an indefinite period. I "And I shall know if yon don't givo it her." said Mr. Pottles, viciously. Thus it happened that Adrian and Peter, as tbey were returning, met poor Dora on tbe steps witb this horrid Dote jo one bund and ber pocket handker chief in tbe ctber for Mrs. Cbatterton abared Mr. bottles' views, and Dora did sot enjoy buvlng to deliver tba note. Tbey were just hastening op to apeak to ber when Mr. Potties biinaolf appear d on the steps holding ont "ToLalage' in bis band. AdIan grasped tbe sitoa ion. i "for fearer, 'a sake, Peter, " be whis pered, "sny yon v. rote the beastly thing I I'm ruined if yon don't." "Eh? lint he'll kick me otit." "I'll ntsml a pony " "Two." said Peter, firmly. "V,M1, two, but be quick." Then Peter spoko np like n mnn nnd aecept'd the blame of "To Lalairo." "But your Initials nren't A. P.," ob jected Mr. Pottles. "To avoid auh-picion I reversed the order. Mine are P. A." ".Tames. " said Mr. Pottles to tbe foot man, "pack Mr. Allison's bag." Dot Dora gave Teter tha kindest and ruct ndmirii( glance na be murmured softly to Adrian, "They're lovely I Oh, don't yon with you could write verses, Mr. Potthst" Adrian started. lie hud not bargain rd for this, but Titer bad overheard and ilit 'rpostd : "I nn more than consoled by yonr approval. Miss Chatterton. " Mr. Pottles called to Adrian, nnd he had to go in, Laving Dora r.nd Piter in close conver sation, and to nsKiiro his nnclo solemnly tlint he had been entirely disappointed nu.1 deceived in Peter, and. worse etill, in Dora, and that lie n-ver wi diod to see either of t!iei:i c'liin. Mr. Pottles ihuck l:iüi by the hand ur.d forgave him. Adrian pns-d n wretch. d Week. In several newspapers be sjw it openly stated that Peter now admitted he was the author of "To Labile." Peter wrote that tho VJ were n.o.-t conveni ent nn that he had had n most charm ing h-tter from Dora, um) that all the liternry world was paying bim mo.it (iaticrii)ii attentions. Adrian ground his teeth, but hn bad to write back, thanking Fcti r for nil l.is kindness, Meanwhile Mr. Pottles grew r.-stlc.' Every paper he took np was full of the praises of "To Lalage. " Tho author v.-es becoming famous, and Mr. Pr.ttles bpj'nu to doubt whether he bad , done well to drive hkn forth v. i'.h contumely. "AJrian." l:o said suddenly one mrrning. "I irm't Ljmiw that I did jus tice to ycr.ng Alliton. I thal have an other look r.t that Look. I fhall order it ut Smith's." "I I happen to bavo a copy, "said Ai'rinn timidy. "(Jet it." said ?..'r. Pottles. Mr. Pot tles rend it first with n deep frown, than with a judicial air. then with a uile. lastly with n tlinekk-. "Ask him to dir.rtr." be said. "Oil. nnd. Ai'rinn. we'll l ave the Chotter- ti.ns I wi.-li jon corld do something to jjit your r:an e up, jr.y boy." "Yon liko it, iiueU-'i" "Yes, nud 1 liko t:ie niMily way he owned to it If be bad prevaricated nltiut it. I'd never have forgiven him." After t::U Adrian oid not care to eer.fi.B It was too bud.

"And bho is a nice girl No. I'm daL'.ied" "A monkey nt three 1" cried Adrian "Done!" raid Tcter.

"There, let ns say no more ul-ont it," pnrsaed Adrian mavnauiuiuunly. "1 f- havc my vrward, " und he retnrn'.'d Dora's alance behind Mr. Pottles' brocd back.

"Then," suid Peter, producing a píceo cf paper from his pocket, "yon n,ight persuado yonr publishers to with draw this beastly thing. " It was a writ, and it claimed an injunction to restrain Pi ter from claiming tho anthorsbip of "To Laluge. " "Then you've been publicly claiming it?" "I had to keep up tho illusion. Adri an. Do me justice." "But," said Adrian, "how, Peter how does it happen that tho writ is dated tbo day before we went to Clap hum t" He pansed. Peter grinned uneasily A light broko in on Adrian. "Why," ha excltrned, "you're the villain who" "Exactly. Wonderfully provident of me, wasn't it t What, you're not go ingt" "Never let mo see your face agnin,' aid Adrian. "I have dono witb yon.' He rushed out Peter whistled gently and said to himself, "Not a bad deal He must stop the action or the old man will twig." Then he whistled again and added, "Glud 1 got it in noteu.
