A LITTLE LOVE COMEDY [Original.1 Paul Klkard never knew a father's or a mother's care, both his parents having tiled when he was an Infant, ills grandmother, who had quarreled with her daughter on account of her marrying Herman Klkard, hnd never seen the child, but had paid liberally for his support and education. She had ?Iii d when l'aul was In college and had left Ii I in some menus. On being grad uated ho was to go to an aunt, who was to take the place of only relative. When l'aul appeared at his Altin Car oline's house a singular looking little old lady with a pair of corkscrew curls received him in a room so shaded from the light that he did not see her till she advanced to meet him. "You are l'aul Klkard, my sister's son," slie said, "and 1 ant your Aunt Caroline. You are to stay here till you nre twenty-three years old, at which time I mil to pay over to you your In heritance. Unfortunately I am called away for a few weeks and must leave you under the same roof with Claudia Chace. a young girl whom I have adopt ed and whose home Is here. My house keeper will ho chaperon. You will meet Claudia at dinner. I wish to admonish you not on any account to fall in lovo with her, since I shall not consent to her marriage with any one. 1 must have her to myself In my old age." 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 genial. "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." "Which was?" "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 self." "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." "Hut" "Hut what'/" "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 age." "What? Could you live with a cur mudgeon?" "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 think." 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 Claudia. "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.
