The best test of tho merit of an arti

it is tho standard by which other Hours

After this address, which she gave in
a cracked voice, she hobbled out of the
room and left the young man to him
self, lie was bitterly disappointed.
This, the only relative he had ever
seen, seemed to be not an especially
lovable person. Well, there was the
young girl, but doubtless she was as un
attractive as his aunt, for such old peo
ple are not likely to make companions
of girls that men would like.
Then CUUIO a summons (o dinner.
A young girl, the very counterpart of
his aunt, advanced to meet him, cor
dially welcoming him. Prom the mo
ment he saw her and listened to her
kindly words he knew he had met one
with whom he would be especially con
"I am CiQUdln," she said. "I have
heard a great deal about you from my
dear mother by adoption and 1 assure
you for years have felt an interest In
one who has had no one to take the
place of father, mother, sister or broth
er. 1 hope; yon will now have fine in
your aunt to till something of the gap.
As for me- well, we must consider our
selves at least cousins."
"Hut Aunt Caroline showed no Inter
est in me whatever."
"She will. Relievo me, you can tell
nothing about her from what you have
seen. She has the kindest heart in the
world and is very unselfish."
l'aul wondered if the girl would call
the ol<l woman unselfish bad she heard
her declare that she Intended keeping
her from a husband to administer to
her own wants. However, his aunt
and all the world were forgotten In the
delightful evening ho spent with
Claudia Chace. Occasionally she would
refer to the aunt, and In one Instance
as a very romantic person. Upon this
l'aul burst Into a laugh, at which Miss
Claudia seemed a trille offended, but
in another moment all was righted and
l'aul saw that he must not mention his
aunt except with the greatest respect.
Paul lost bis heart. The return of
the old lady and a declaration of love
came about near the same time, l'aul
proposed one evening and his aunt was
to return the next morning.
"Are you sure." asked Claudia se
riously, "that In doing this you are act
ing honorably ?"
Paul started. "I bad forgot Ion," he
said, "that before my aunt's departure
she gave me warning."
"Why, tllO fad Is," said Paul, "the
old curmudgeon told me she would
never consent to your marriage since
she intended to keep you single for her
"That being the case, I must decline
your proposal. i owe her too IllUCll
and love her too well to marry with
out her permission."
"1 will beg her on my knees to give
you to me. Wo will both take care of
her be her companions in her old
"What? Could you live with a cur
"For you I could live with a wolf."
Tho girl burst Into a Inugh, "Very
well," she siibl "you lUttJ" nsR lor, ami
we shall see if she is as selfish as you
The next morning Paul was in
formed that the old lady had returned
and wished to see him In the library.
Ho entered tho same dimly lighted
room as before.
"Well, young man," said the crone,
"you've been here for three? weeks
With my daughter. 1 dare say you've
beim trying to rob me of her."
"My dear aunt, I would not rob you
of her for the world. Hut I beg of you
not to separate me from ono I love.
Together we will"?
Tboro was a rustle behind n port lore
nnd n benevolent looking lady emerged.
At the same tlmn sundry articles of
att'n'o nnd "make up" fell from tho
nunt, revealing the face and figure of
"Permit me to Introduce you to your
Aunt Caroline," said the girl, with a
merry twinkle In her eye.
"Your request Is granted," said the
real nunt. "My dear boy, Claudia ami
I have long looked forward to partially
relieving tho loneliness you have en
dured since your birth. I concocted
this scheme, hoping to glvo you n wife
to love you, and Claudia has carried it
"And you shall bo mother to us
both/' replied Paul.
