WATERBURY EVENING DEMOCRAT, FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 1008.
His T -t "Future i Wife." By Nellie Crivey Olllmere CeprrithM. UM, by Aiseoiated literary Press. The Judge Angered the dainty not reflectively, narrow! his keen gray eyes, breathed a little faster-and star tled himself by blushing. Yet the con tents of the missive were very simple, very commonplace and ran as follows: Pecan Orove, Oct. . My Dear Jude-Bllly la very anxious to have you run down (or the week end and ha asked me to writ and urge you to come. There la to be quite a jolly crowd about a dosen ot ua-and we are f oltir to wind lip with a bl(f Halloween ball Saturday evening, the Uet. Come and learn who te to be your fu ture wife. With baet wlihee. DIANA LANDIS. Judge Underwood was abruptly con scious of a vain and frivolous desire to be young again. He even took out bis pocket mirror and studied bis re flection critically, noting the little fur rows between bis straight black brows with an apprehensive heart. Would Miss Laudls have written so cordially bad she dreamed of the reck less tide of emotions surging within him at the bare sight of her well re membered little scrawl? Would she have written at all? He thought not, for Diana was but ulueteen. and he was boverlug very close to forty! Ten years ago be had taught her the three R's In the village school at Pecan Grove, and five years ago she bad been the first to discover the half dozen su rer hairs t bat had since grown ln.o the little tuft of gray above his left temple. Still, he could no wore control the feelings that obsessed him than he could clip off the years that stood be tween him and bis heart's desire, so , with an impulsive band he seized n pen from the rack and dashed down bis answer: , New York, Oct. 22. Deer Mies Ind!s Your kind Invitation reaches me at a most opportune time, and you may be euro I ihall enjoy taking- a week oft down at the Grove. The proapert of finding a Ufa partner appeal to me almost aa much aa the an ticipation ot the visit, aa I am beginning to need ballast very badly. Sincerely yours, R. H. UNDERWOOD. As soon as be had dispatched his let ter the judge thrust anlde the clamor ing pile of briefs on his desk, picked up his hat and hurried down to bis tailor's. When informed by bis sartorial ex cellency that the pearl gray, Just com pleted, made him "look like a boy" the judge was again so foolish as to allow his face to grow red, but he merely cowled in reply and ordered the suit rat to his rooms at once. xne next morning at v ne Jert on nia Journey, reaching Pecan Grove at 3 in the afternoon. Billy Landls was at the station with a smart little trap, and they bad aa exhilarating two mile spin through the beetle autumn woods. The judge longed to ask some ques tions about Diana, but kept craftily silent, hoping that Billy would present ly volunteer a little information. 1 And after thrashing out every othei subject under the sun eo It seemed to his guest Billy finally remarked: "We have six girls angels, all of them and six of the opposite variety of brute, in cluding you and myself. Di has plan ned no end of thrilling stunts for every day in the week, she and Teddy Car ers." : . , The judge felt his heart drop like a leaden plummet, but be forced him- aeit to say, matter oi iactiy: ' I don't think I ever heard of the name down here. Is be" "Of course you didn't," interposed Billy quickly. "They're a nice Eng lish family wbo have leased the ad joining plantation. Teddy is the old est boy. He's a brick too." Judge Underwood was keenly con scious of a desire to kick himself cleai back to New York.' Why ever had he succumbed idiotically to the tempta tion of the moment in allowing himself to be inveigled down here? He had permitted himself to be made a fool ol by a glrl'g offer of friendly hospitality, by a tailor's stupid drlveL,by his owi arrant imbecility. , Bat he managed adroitly to box up his feelings nnd observe with a sur prising degree of enthusiasm: "It was awfully good of, you an to have me The First Bottle To every sick person who suffers from a Cough, "Cold", Bronchitis, Consumption or an ache or pain anywhere in the body and who has not tried LINONINE (the Flax Seed Emulsion), we offer a full bottle free.

Then wltb the deadliest seusatlon b bad aver experienced the judge pulled smile to his lip and light to his eyee as they drove up wltb a flour ish under the porte-oocbere. The first person bin gasa rested on wsj Diana herself. She ran out with both slim brown bands extended In welcome and a beautiful flush show ing vividly through the apricot tan of hear checks. Tin so glad to see yon, judge," aha said. "It seems like a cen tury since yon went away, yet It's been only two years, hasn't It?" "By facts and figures," he replied, enaabtef bar fingers warmly, "other wise eternities." They hots laughed and stood on the porch chatting till BUly returned snd dragged Judge Underwood off to his room. After they had gone Diana stood still In the same spot for several minutes. Presently she drew a deer breath and shook her head. "No," she mused softly; "It's made a dHTerwoe. What with legal honors and taoaey sad New York people At this juncture Teddy Csrstairs came up snd Interrupted her reflec tions, claiming her for the next tennis notch, snd, gulping her irritation, Di ana smiled and accompanied him down to the court. From his upstairs window tie Judge with the EMe -green god'" at his el bow, watched them cross the lawn and disappear. Half an hoar later, having exchanged his dark travettng salt for the delectable gray, he went down talrs and joined the crowd on the veranda. We are going to bob for apples nrst. announced Diana, who was adorable in a pink lingerie frock, "and afterward run around the square one at a time. Then there's the looking gluss stunt and the 'face in the well.' " "Let me suggest," remarked Teddy Carstalrs from a sprawling position on the sofa, "that as we have only to 12 o'clock to dance we divide up on these honors. I choose "bobbing.' " "Your ides Is In order, Ted," approv ed Diana, with a charming dimple which the judge registered against her In his heart "Are there any more vol unteers?" There were five. Four, more wore started out separately to walk around the square In quest of their affinities, while Teddy and Molly Perkins disap peared in search of a looking glass. "It looks as if we ore in for what the Well will reveal," laughed Diana as Judge Underwood came up to her. "You are the general," be said, "and I'm reporting for orders." The week's Intimacy bed put them on terms of the most friendly comnaionshlp, although long ago the judge had consigned his foolish hopes to the dead past. But Diana, who had never been very astute in arithmetic, was doubly so in mind reading, and she penetrated the judge's . most .. sacred thoughts with subtle divination. "Then,'! said she, "If you're a good soldier yon will go down to the old well in the corner of the cabbage field, glance In and turn away quickly, coming as fast as you can back to the house. Walt till you hear the clock strike 9." And she left him before be could protest. For an instant the judge stood gaz ing after her with wistful, troubled eyes. Then, summoning his dignity and his courage be slipped, unnoticed, through one of the low windows and walked leisurely down to where the old well loomed, a dilapidated hulk, from which all water had been drawn, in the half light of the dilatory stars. He paused a second, with his hand on the crumbling bucket shelf. Then he took a deep breath and looked down into a solemn pair of unwinking brown eyes. His heart gave a terrific, most unmaglsterlal throb, and then the judge did a very arbitrary thing. He delib erately struck a match, throwing its bright yellow glare across two crim son cheeks, a shining nest of golden brown balr a&d clouds of pink dimity. . At this juncture the judge quite for got that he was almost forty, that he was wearing hU immaculate pearl gray, that a million stars were looking on, for he vaulted lightly the inclosure of the well and dropped down, four feet, into the soft sand beside his "fu ture wife" and folded her, regardless, in his arms. ' "But you were to look and run right away," protested Diana in a muffled tone. "You didn't play fair; it's all a Joke." "It's a sublime reality," the Judge cut In lumlnonsly, "and six automo $100,000.00 to make a i Perfect Medicine. Linonine Is a blood food the most helpful thing in all medicine for you.
