the house would be an abomination.
He was confirmed in this belief the
first night their 'phone was in commis*

sleep by the jangling of the bell and be?

"Say, are you the undertaker7"
The morning after the 'phone was
installed .Mrs. Aduiinglon starlet to
put It to most practical use. that of
ordering things for dinner from the
market. She was thiukimr how pleas?
ant it was just to ring a bell and tell
the grocer what to tend.
She took down the receiver and put
it to her ear. bat was somewhat vexed
to hear a man's rota \ and discover that
the line was busy.
"I'll have to wait, and I'm in such n
hurry," she pouted, but remembering
an errand in another part of the house.
she busied herself for a few moments.
Her next try at the 'phone found the
line still busy. Mis. Admington was
tempted for a s'cmid to listen, but
didn't think that would bo ?juito fair,
so again she hung up Iba receiver end
sat down to wait till the line should
be disengaged. She fidgeted in a little
chair for a minute that seemed ten and
then went to the 'phone again, saying
to herself:
"Those people must be through talk?
ing by this time."
But they were not, and ns Mrs. Ad?
mington took down the .eceiver for
the third time to call up central she
heard the emphatic declaration of a
,very decided young woman:
"Well, I don't care. I'm going to
marry hlin anyway."
Mrs. Admington knew that she ought
to drop the receiver, but she couldn't
let go. It was glued to her ear. And.
anyway, the next instant she beard
the voice of the man she had heard
twicp before, and he had been monopo?
lizing'that wire long enough. /
"Bu.t how long did you say you hnye
known him?" be was asking the yo\/y<
woman. /
"Why, I've known him only/ two
^eeks," was the reply, "but I'y/> soen
him an awful lot in that timey^
"Well, don't you think two/weeks g

on?" urged the man. /
"It would be in most eas/s," admitted
the young woman, "but yfith us it's dif?
ferent. He's awfully id/.0. and he HkPs
me, and I like him./nnd he doesn't
want to wait. He jfioesn't believe in
long engagements. Jfu) neither do I."
"Weli, you're a*/mpleton," was Mrs.
Admington's mental comment, as she
shifted from afhe foot to the other
and moved a l/i!e nearer to the 'phone

"Well, I don't want you to think me
too much of a meddler," came back the
voice of the man. "I only want to sug?
gest things that seem fcj be for your
good. Now, you say you*- e known this
man for two weeks. Are you sure you
will care for him at the end of tw*<
months? Wouldn't it be well to Vmlt
that long and see?"
"We haven't the least bit of fear of
that," responded the young l?dy in
tones of perfect assurance. "He says
we were made for each other."

Mrs. Admington to herself, losing al!

resumed the old man.
"And yon arc twenty?"
"Well, I'll bo twenty-one in a cotroH

"And how old are his children?"
"The lwy is fifteen and the girl only

tough a job as looking after the
The man was silent for an instant,
trying to think of something else to
switch the young woman off the ma tri
moninl track. Mrs. Admington was
hoping he would be successful, but he
wasn't, se he fired a weak parting shot.
"Well," he began, hopelessly, "all 1
can say to you is that If you marry that
man after having known him only tw-o
weeks you will be doing a very foolish
thing, and in looking after those two
children you will certainly have your
work cut out for you."
'T don't care if I do." came the voice
of the young woman .snappishly. "I've
thought it all over and I'm going to

Mrs. Admington wasn't able to con?

"Don't you do it. If yon do you're
a perfect goose nnd yon ought to know

prise from the other two. and then the
voice of the man:
"Well, who in thunder are you?".
"I'm not in thun 1er anybody,"
?napped Mrs. Admington, "but I'm
considerably older lhan the young lady
at the other end of the wire, and I've
learned ? few things she ought to know
before she marries a man twice as
old as herself and with two children
as big as she Is."
? "Pity you didn't learn not to listen
to private conversations." snapped the
voice of the young woman.
"Ami another pity you didn't know
better than to discuss such matters
over a telephone." retorted Mrs. Ad?
mington. spicily. "Rut I'm glad yon
