for the Embankment. Each felt that

paced the flagstones. Sometimes
Glyndes hand would close hard on
Hilfiuy's arm, ns though to say,
"Whatever hujipenp, old man, nothing
matters,"' i.ud sometimes Hilgay
would stiuctze Glynde's hand tight
ncalnBt his ribs, and Glynde knew
that he was Fayinp, "Whoever she is,
old man, wo are j als to tlK end." It
is well said that the love of one man
for another pannes the love of woman.
,These two never really knew what
their friendship meant until the
woman came into their lives.
With a sudden inspiration Hilgay
took out half-a-crown.
"Heads or tails, Jack?" he said.
"Heads!" said Jack.
Teddy Hilgay uncovered. It was
"You must tell me her name, old
man," he said. Glyude cleared his
throat, took Hilgay'g arm, and started
walking away from the Embankment
at four miles an hour towards the Ox
ford and Cambridge Club.
On the steps of the club Glynde
made a mighty effort.
"Enid Allerton," he said, and then
looked sharply round at Teddy. He
saw a wave of blood fly into bis face,
and felt his arm tremble.
"Good Lord!" said Hilgay.
"Why, whafs the Joke? What's
your girl's name?"
"Enid Allerton," said Hilgay.
"Good heavens, isn't the world
large enough for us both?" Glynde's
face was twitching and his eyes
blazed. "What have we done? What's
the matter with us? What's wrong
with the world? Why, in heaven's
name, should we always come up
against each other? Do you hear?
Whv the blazes can't vou fall In love

"Jolly," said Glynde.
"Very jolly," said Hilgay.
"You two chaps look Jolly, too."
Carbls grinned at them so widely und
unaffectedly that it was almost pos

"We feel Jolly," said Glynde.
"Very jolly," said Hilgay.
Instinctively they both made a
move towards the door.
Carbls began to tweak his fingers
nervously, although the beam was
still on his face. "I say," he said,
"you fellows, you might give me a
minute if you haven't unythlng better

Glynde and Hilgay turned back.

Entertaining a Prejudice.
Of all the occupations known to men, entertaining a
prejudice is the most absurd. Yet the practice is almost
The prejudice Is usually uninvited. He comes in quietly,
removes bis bat and emit, saunters up to the gues-t chamber,
and prepares to Income a permanent feature of the estab
lishment. You entertain him royally, strain him to your
bosom, ..xhibit him proudly to every one, fight for him, de
fend him. and perpetuate him. You do not even admit that,

coming concern. "Never!"
Uirds tif a feather Dork together. It therefore happens
that If there is one prejudice present, there are others. They
alwrys rom in unawares, and take their places silently anil
unobtrusively. But oh, how they bang together In an
argument !
A group of prejudices is invincible. They have cever
been beaten.
The strange part of prejudices Is that one would think
they would prefer more commodious quarters. But no, the
narrower the mind, the more content they are. They don't
mind close quarters. The closer the better.
Prejudices ore always busy. If they are not tampering
with one's eyesight, they are screening the mind from the
open; putting blinds on, and making it dark enough to sleep
In comfortably.
A man can get Insured against almost anything else but
prejudices. He can Insure himself againBt fire and water
and loss of life and accidents and depreciation In bis prop
erty. But there 1b no company so fortified that it would take
the risk of insuring against prejudice. And then no man
would ever think of taking out any insurance against one, be
cause he would never admit thRt he had It. The prejudice
himself fixes that. The first thing he does is to make the
man think he Isn't there.
That is why prejudices, no matter how much damage
they cause to character, are never evicted. They have come
