Tke station guard slammed the gate
.shut as I'cutou reached it, suitcas??? La
hand. He set his baggage down and
mopped his face disgustedly.
**llang it! If 1 expressed my real
fee Un 148 Ulis would be no place for
a lady."
Someone ?lapped him on the shoul?
der with a laugh. "First time I ever
knew you to get left at anything, txld
Benton wheeled around, his face
lighting with pleasure. "By the eter?
nal, it's Tom Hartley. You look good
to me after a year'8 absence. If any?
thing could make up to me for losing
my train, and havmg to stay over, it
-would be y out having turned up.
Didn't know a soul in the place, and
was picturing to myself the hilarity of
going back to my hotel and reading
all the evening."
Hartley drew htar over to a bench
and handed him a c.gar. "Sorry. Ben?
ton, but I am leaving in fifteen m-in
utes myself, for a three months' trip.
"Wish we could make an evenng of it
and talk over old times. Haven't only
seen you twice since we left college.
You certainly used to play a devilisSa
lot of Jokes on me. Wish we souid
he thrown together o-c*c*asionally, per?
haps th? last four years have devol
oped my mentality enough for me to,
?come back at yoti."
Beaton ?rJiuckled remiJJiscently. "I
would vHlllngly let you try your hand
at it. Tommy, if only you could re?
lieve this doad}y dull evening that
yawns before me. Don't lajcw a soul
in the blooming city."
*il could give you a note of intro?
duction te the d?**arest girl living,"
Hartley answered enthusiastically,
"she has the reputation of being the
wittiest girl In town and would make
you think misusing your train was the
pleaasmtest thing that over happened."!
Beaton looked at his business suit1
dubiously. "I couldn't call in this
get up."
"Nonsense! She isn't that kind of
a girl at all, not the least bit snob?
bish. Let me write the note, Benton,
yon can use it or not. but you n
decide that you would like to kill an
. evening's monotony, and I'll vouch for
it that you don't often meet a girl
tliat corn-pares with this one."
"He took a card from his pocket and
scribbled several lines with his foun?
tain pen. "Here's luck to you, old
fellow, and I think that's my train
they are calling. Tickled to death to!
have rua Into you."
Benton checked his baggage and
walked several blocks before he dc
cided that it was not every mortal
that was so favored by the gods as to
"have the opiK>rtunity of meeting the ?
wittiest girl in town, then finally took'
a cab and gave the address Hartley
had written on the card. Hartley had
written: "Introducing my old college
chum, Richard Beaton, who is in town
for the night only, and who doesn't I
know a 6ouI. If you haven't ao en-1
gagoment. be nee to him. He's . K.. !
excepting a tendency to play pratcisal
jokes, but probably his mania single
The note was characteristic of Hart?
ley's old style, and while its lack of
d'gnity was apparent, it would prob?
ably cause no surprise to any friend
of his .
"vVhn the ?**ab stopped and Benton
went up steps, his courage weakened !
slightly, as he had not expected any- j
thing quite so magnificent as the
house he was entering. The butler
took his card and left h?lm sitting in
the library wondering if he had not
been folish to act upon Hartley's im?
pulsive suggestion.
Whe.a hits courage had reached low
ebb Miss HiUoa came m. Sue hesi?
tated a s?3coud, and her gray eyes
teemed to analizo Benton. She
stretched out her ?and cordcially, for;
Benta>u's was a face that women trusi
ed. "Mr. Hartley ?couldn't have sent
you at a more opportune time. I had
stayed n tonight expecting uiy inotuer
and father to come in on the train
from ?Mow York, but have just had a
telegram that Chey will not be here
until midnight, so there was the pros?
pect of a lonely evening."
Benton gazed, ?uad thanked the gods
?aad Hartley. The soft, shm looeli
ncss at her was ?wonderful!
She sat on the divan near him, a
mirthful twinkle in her eyes. Mr.
Hartley's card says that you are prac?
tically perfect?-wiflh the exception of
a predilection for practical jokes."
"Poor old chap! It's a shame the
way 'I've Imposed upon his good na?
ture, for no matter how much the
laugh was on him, he always saw the
po.nt of Che joke and enjoyed it. He
has vowed he will got even with me
some time, but I am not losing any
sleep over his intention."
Miss Hilton's smile of appreciation
came near ?developing into a gaggle.
"I think we ?may credit him with hav?
ing made a successful effort," her eyes
full of mirth.
Benton looked at -her in snrprice.
"Hid (he write anything elese on the
back of the <*ard?" ho asked quickly.
"Nothing at all. See'" she held it
up before him. 'But I think I am safe
in propheseying that you will acknowl?
edge that he (has paid off all old
"Has toe 'phoned to you since he left
me?*" His tone was puzzled.
"No, ae hasn't telephoned. Shall 1
tell yo?u the point of the joke?" ?he
l?3ejaed forward, smiling.
He a-ar?'J faacinat?-*dly at the whlte
neeo ?it her throat where the Dutch
neck of ber white gown left In ex?
posed. "!'m consumeal with ci*rios

***Well?suppose I told you that Mr.
Hartley didn't telephone me tonight,
that he never has phoned to me, and.
that furthermore, I never met him in
my life, nor had ?I ever heard his

He roso to his feet in astonish?
ment. "What!" he shouted.
"Never," she respondini laughing.
"I hope you are as good natured as
you represen t?ad brn to be?for the
Joke is certainly on you."
His face flushed with shame. "What
most you think? If you will allow me
a moment to make humble apologies I
will make as graceful a retreat as the
ciroum&tanceB permit."
Miss Dllton smiled and pressed t-he
electric button beside her. "I have al?
ways had a weakn??6s for playing prac?
tical jokes myself, and this seems an
unusually good one. Suppose, since
we have already met and ?xmversed at
length without proper introduction,
you remain until John brings some
sandwiches and tea, and you can tell
me some of the college tricks that led
to the just retribution that has be?
fallen you tonlg-ht."
His relief was visible on his face.
"The gods have not only been merci
| ful," he said softly, "they have been
? most arnazmg kind."
? ??*????
Three months later Benton entered
the lobby of his hotel and ran into
Hartley. Hartley's face expanded in
-his old time grin. "Glad to rum hito
you again, Benton, -have yo*u been
stalled here ever since I left you at
the station last fall?" he asked.
"Mot exactly all the time. I have
been stationed in New York as usual,
but have run down to Philadelphia
some few dozen times," Benton ans?
"Thought you didn't know anyone in
town ?"
Benton smiled and led the way into
the grill -r-oa.Ti. "Didn't, until you gave
me that card of introduction."
Hartley slapped him on the should?
er ?3nergetloally. "So you really went
to call on her?" he howle-d gleefully.
"Yes, Indeed! And I havo called
dozen of times since."
Hartley's eyre opened wide. "By
Jove! 1 have be??n wanting to meet
that girl for the last two y?9ars, ajid
I didn't know a soul ampiiR her
ac?-*uaintan<*es. You don't know the
good thing you have Ftumoled into.
Bent, old boy, she is the swellect of
the swell, and practically the belle of
tho city. Let's call bygones bygones."
he said pi? adinixly, "and fix up some
plan to have me meet her."
"With the g-reate&t pleasure?hut you
will have to postpone it a few weeks?
the lady in question is very busy at
pre-pent?she is to be married tomor?
"Just my luck," Hartley gTowled dis?
gustedly, "who is the lucky man?"
"I am," he answered, brief!y.
