What hupjH'iied lust night at the garden T" Well, rather, I couldn't help it. It was this way: Mr. Jones, I and the others were sitting quietly listening to the music when one of a party of offi cers who were drinking heavily at the next table ogled ne and finally, rais ing his glass, drank to me. Mr. Jones, who saw him do It, tossed his card on to the table before him, then paid no further attention to him. Soon after we left the garden." Yes, and there will be a meeting. you will be defended by this this John Jones, and what girl can hnve' a man fight for her protection and not full in lov with him?" "But, father, has not our cousin Blighted us? He has been at the uni versity all this time and has never been to see us." "Students at Bonn are not supposed to go gadding. Tbey are there to study." Ilerr Flelschman stormed and cursed the day when the Englishman came to town, and bis daughter went to her room In tears. She knew that Mr. Jones would meet the man who had insulted her, and she had not beard that the former was expert with any weapon. She also realized the truth of her father's words. She bad liked Mr. Jones, but till his life was periled In her defense she did not know that she loved hlra. Nothing was heard of Mr. Jones till the next afternoon, when Bertha was overjoyed to see him come sailing up the street as though nothing hud hap pened. But It was evident that gome thing had happened, for he wore his arm In a sling. Thsnk heaven," exclaimed Bertha as be joined ber, "you are not killed. 1 hope you have not killed the other!" 'No, but be will be In bed long enough to think over bis mistake In In suiting a lady." 'Oh, Mr. Jones, how ran I thank you?" "You don't need to thank me. I only did what any gentleman would have done under the circumstances." "Do tell me some way by which I can show my appreciation of - your kind ness the risk you have taken for me." "There is but one way, he said, low ering bts voice, "and that cannot be." "Name It," she replied, knowing what was without bis telling her. "Your father has told me of your American cousin. Bertha knew that this was a declara tion. She lowered her eyea. "well?" she said softly.

At the sume time she did not think Mr. Junes rcguided the mutter in a serious enough manner. "I shall have to do as my father wishes," she said. "W'v German maidens are trained to obey our parents in such matters." "Is it your father or you who are to be suited with a husbuud?" I." 'Then I see no reasou for you to niar- rv to suit him Instead or yourseir. You talk like an American. I won der If my cousin has such remarkable views." At this point Herr Flelschman en tered, scowling at the couple, who were sitting quite close together on a sofa. "Heir Fleisi'hninn," said Mr. Jones, we have been discutteing the Gcruiun and American methods of proposal for wife. Frauleiu Bertha prefers the German, I the American. I wouldn't consider a girl worth marrying who would let her father choose a husband for her." Herr Flelsc-lnuim turned red with an Ki'r, while liertha looaea ut Iter wooer astonished. "I ask for the hand of your daugh ter," continued Mr. Jones. "I leave her to choose between me on the one hand and you and this American cousin on the other." Hoth men turned to Bertha. She had bee.ii captivated by this down treading of established rules and the defense she hud rocel ved indeed, the sweeping methods of this novel lover. It was hard struggle with her to decide be tween what she considered her duty nud a lover who hud no respect for established forms, but love triumphed, uud she threw her arms around the lover's neck.

How pleased I was to receive Mrs. Clifford's Invitation to spend tlie Fourth of July at the Clifford country place. "We shall lie very quiet" she rote. "Y'ou mustn't expect any gay- ety. There will be uo one here ex cept the members of our family. Sorry I can't have a young lady for you, but I don't want the trouble of one." Tlie Clifford children were Grace and Charlie. When I had lust seen them, Grace' was a sweet little girl seven 01 eight years of age au ethereal child whom an artist would choose for spir ituelle model purposes. Charlie was three years younger. What luck for nie, this opportunity to turn my back ou the crackling, booming city and spend tlie day with this quiet family. When I arrived In time for dluner on the evening of the 31-I was re minded how time flies. Grace Clifford, though she still wore ber drosses quite short, was as tall as she was likely to be. Charlie wus nearly fifteen, Orace seemed to have retained her childish gentleness, and Charlie also seemed a quiet, retiring boy, devot ed, so his mother told me, to books. We dined uudlsturbed by the sound of a single cracker, the children so weir behaved that neither of them spoke during tlie meal. Indeed I, be ing a young man considerably under thirty, remembering that Grace must be eighteen, felt inclined to have some words with ber, especially as she waa very pretty. But she maintained her reserve iu presence of the father and mother at table and after dinner. I bow ber uo more during, the evening. The licxt morning I wus awakened by the spitcul suup of a firecracker. I turned over uud slept again. I was awakened by a seeoud snap, this time to stay awake. I felt under my pillow for uiy watch and noted the time 5 o'clock. I hud been told that breakfast would be ut 9. Four hours' interval. and I felt hungry. I must get another uap. I shut my eyelids and resolved that I would sleep despite the daylight streaming iu ut my window. I was dozing off when there came another crack-not a goou round noise, but a spiteful, malicious, muliguuut little snap, not big euough to fully awaken me, but to disturb the slumber lulo which I wus drifting. I continued to keep my eyed closed tightly, hoping to fall asleep, but there came a succession of cracks In monotonous regularity uud volume. I covered my curs with the sheet and persevered. My efforts were of no avail. The contemptible snaps continued, and ut last I gave up, open ed my eyes and looked at the window, I saw a little brass cuunou resting on the rail of tlie bnk-otiy ou to which my room opened. A bund projecting from a coat sleeve, with a lighted mutch, was thrust forward to touch off the cannon, but the flame was blown out by the wind before lt reached the vent. I waited and watched. Another match was tried and failed. Then a bit of lighted firecracker was tried, and this time the wrist of the hand that held k wore a bracelet. I also heard a girl's giggle. The cannon was tired. It was still but half past 5 o'clock. Should I endure tills annoyance or make au attempt to stop lt? I got up and, looking Into the hall, saw the door of a bedroom opposite standing open I want iu, closed tlie door, threw myself on the bed and succeeded in getting a few minutes' slumber bafore being called. Meanwhile I presume the chil dren kept ou with their firing, suppos ing they were annoying uie. At break fast Grace looked demure enough for a nunnery. I made no reference to my discovery. The children kept their crackers ex plodlng all the morning. If I went on to the front piazza they cume with them there. If I went to the back piazza they also changed for my new position. We dined at 1 o'clock, and after dinner I sought the library for a nap. I expected to bear more crack ers, but I did not. I was dozing off when an immense bee came tumbling on to my nose. I made a frantic grasp for it and failed. I aettled myself again, and again cume the bee. This time I saw that It was a bit of paper hanging by a thread to a stick. I shut my eyes and pretended to sleep. The bee climbed all over my nose, but I paid no attention to It Finally I snored. Out of the corner of my eye I saw Grace Clifford steal softly from behind a screen with a plaut sprayer in her hand. Beaching forward, (be gave me Its contents. Almost before the water reached me I sprang up, seized her In my arms and covered her face with kisses. Let me go or I'M call papa!" she cried, struggling vigorously. "Cull as loud as you like." "You're not a gentleman." "Nor are you a lady." "How dare yon sny that to me?" "No lady would fire a brass cannon under a guest's window to keep blm awake." She gave a spasmodic giggle. "Or sting bis nose with a bumble bee." Another giggle. "Now, I've taken the kisses to pay for keeping me awake for three hours this morning, and I'm going to take pay for the bumblebee." I gave her half a dozen smacks. "Now we'll settle for the spray." I gave her a round dozen more and opened my arms. She flew out of the room like a bird. Poor . Grace!" said Mrs. Clifford when ber daughter did nut appear for the fireworks prepared for the "chil dren In the evening. "She's cone to bed with a headache. She's such a delicate child." Before the next Fourth the sensitive child was my betrothed. - RUSSELL THORNE. 1 16 1)1 J2 94 p 2 90 p 11 68 a 11 48 11 04 a 10 12 10 OS a 9 30 al 26 a t Jla 9 11 a 8 42 a 24 7 48 a T 90 a 7 10a 6 18 a 6 10 a 8 68 a 6 34 a ( 25 a 8 00 a 1 19 a 16 a 1 41 a 1 84 a 19 61a 12 00m 11 66 p 11 29 p 11 18 p ii in rt ill 04 p 10 36 p IU 19 p 46 p 18 p 9 08 p ftp 8 06 p 7 84 p T 99 p sP Dally XX.
