“Where are the matches?"
Nan stumbled over a taboret and
emitted a startled exclamation.
“Forevermore! Eleanor, where on
earth are you?”
“Stand still until I can And where
the switch is, goose.” ' There came
the click of a- button and the long
reception hall lay revealed tn a flood
It was after twelve, and they both
needed rest more than anything after
the trip down from the mountains.
It was cheerier In the cozy bedroom
suite upstairs. The rooms connected
with eacli other, and Nan rambled
about, her brown hair in two long
braids arid a kimono wrapped about
her. Tucked into a corner was a pho-
tograph that seemed different from the
rest. It was such a splendid, manly
young face that smiled out at one from
it. Nan turned it over and read on
the back in a scrawling, boyish writ-
Over at the little white dressing
table Eleanor sat brushing her hair.
Somehow no one would ever have con-
nected her with college boys who
signed themselves, “Devotedly, Bill.”
"What are you chuckling over?”
Eleanor turned around, her fair hair
falling loosely over her shoulders, her
eyes filling with tears.
“Oh, Nell, I didn’t mean to etlr up
“Oh, It's all right. You didn't strike
any heavy minor chord.” She looked
down at the photograph tenderly. “He
was just a boy ! met up at Cornell
last winter, the very first boy that
ever dared to love me.”
"Bless his old brave heart,” inter-
rupted Nan fervently, leaning forward,
her chin on her hands. “Doesn’t he
even write to you?”
“We promised we wouldn't, not for
a year. What’s that?”
Both girls rose to their feet with
“Somebody fell over the taboret
in the hall,” Nan whispered, her dark
eyes wide with dread. "You turned
off the lights.”
Eleanor thought quickly. The house
had been closed since June. A care-
taker came every day to look after it,
and at night the watchman was sup-
posed to guard it. She crossed the
room and locked both doors leading
into the hall, then went to the win-
“Did you hear that?” Nan whispered,
her face pressed against the door
listening. “Somebody whistled, and it
Nan shrank back, her face covered
with her hands, but Eleanor slipped
one arm around her, soothing her even
while her own heart throbbed heavily.
“Come on, now!” called a deep
voice. "Open up. You know you can’t
get out of there.”
“And you cannot get in,” returned ,
Eleanor clearly. “If you attempt to ’
break In the doors I will fire.”
“Sure, ’tls a woman’s voice,” they
heard some one say. "Shall I break
in the door, Mr. Blair?”
“No, no, wait.” The knob turned.
A shoulder pressed against the door
panel. "Nell, open the door, please.
I know your voice. It’s Bill.”
"Who’s with you?”
"Just the watchman. I saw the
lights and thought burglars were In
here. Open the door, please."
Eleanor turned the key. Tall and
very lovely she looked in her long,
blue crepe kimono, her face pale and
determined, her hair in two long
braids over her shoulders like some
old-time Saxon princess.
Out in the hallway stood Bill, the
original of the picture, and the old
“Nell," he cried, “I had no idea it
was you in here. I’ve had a room
across the street all summer just to
be near the house, and when I saw the
lights flash on, I called Sullivan here
and we hustled over to get the bur-
glars. I’m awfully sorry.”
Sullivan moved tactfully down the
hallway, testing locks here and there.
Nan had dropped limply Into a willow
chair, with its back toward the two at
the door. Bill raised two white, slim
hands to his lips and kissed them.
"It’s so wonderful to see you again,
girl dear. I’ve watched these barred
shutters all summer, waiting for you
to come back. I won’t wait a year,
Nell. Look at me. Aren't you glad
to see me?”
“Don’t you know, Billie boy?”
“Listen, dear. Don't let them take
you away from me again. It’s Provi-
dence, this mixup here tonight. I’ve
been patient for months. Don't say
no, Nell. I'll be over early for you,
and we'll be married before anything
lie was gone before she could even
protest. From the willow chair came
a contented chuckle, and a brief re-
" Devotedly, Bill.’ ”

“If you could have seen his profile!” j
mourned the girl with the sunburned
neck. “Anyhow, I still think Emily j
ought to have told me! She was my
“I always thought Emily had a
lovely nature,” objected the girl In the
new basque waist.
"She may have a lovely nature,"
agreed the young woman with the sun-
burn, “but she begged me to stay over
with her when the rest of the house
party left, just to keep me from going
back in the same crowd with Wayne
Hippie! How could I help It If Wayne
wae nicer to me than he was to her—"
“If It wasn't Wayne, then who was
It?” demanded the girl in the wrinkled
“Emily said 1 simply must stay be-
cause I loved nature so, and now ihat
most of the cottagers had gone home
there were oceans of nature lying
around loose and unappropriated, and,
anyhow, her mother was goin: in to
Chicago, and she’d be so lonesome all
alone. She was so mournful about it
that I had to stay, or make myself out
a perfect brute,
"I went out to fish,” said the girl
with the sunburned neck. "Not at all
because I like to fish, but because
there was nothing else to to do, and
the meat hadn’t come. Emily said
that unless I caught some we’d have
no dinner. So I took the rowboat and
rowed around the bend into the bayou.
He was there.”
“The man. Right In the spot where
I wanted to anchor swung his boat. I
thought he was a native because of
the old straw hat till he turned, and it

was then I was smitten dumb by the
profile. And the eyes! And the gen-
eral look of being somebody! I knew
immediately he must be a man of im-
portance who had buried himself in
the wilds to rest, and I was so thank-
ful that I had on the newest style of
middy and a becoming shade hat. I
resolved to be perfectly oblivious and
self-possessed, so I proceeded to stop
and fish as I had first intended. A
man always admires an unflustered
girl. I couldn’t help It, could I, If
my bamboo pole dropped overboard?”
"Oh, horribly crude!”
“It was better than falling overboard
myself,” protested the other. “Not
nearly so mussy! I wish you could
have seen the manner in which he re-
trieved that pole and gave it to me!
When he raised his hat I decided that
he was some movie star.
“Finally he called over to me to say
that he thought I’d catch more fish
if I baited my hook! Fancy! I was
so confused that he rowed over and
baited it for me! But I didn't seem
to catch any, so he generously divided
his own, after he had discovered that
I was fishing for my dinner.
“I went fishing again the next morn-
ing, too. There was no reason I should
be driven off the lake by a stranger.
We didn’t talk so much, but you
should have seen his eyes! In a week
I felt we had known each other a life-
time! You can tell by a man’s expres-
sion whether he has a superior soul,
I think! That is, usually.
“Emily said she couldn’t imagine
why I had grown so crazy over fishing,
and said she believed she’d come
along, but I persuaded her not to. The
sun always gives her a headache. I
was bound that for once she should
not interfere with my friendships. It
certainly would take her down a peg
when she found how far I had pro-
gressed with the handsome unknown.
“Even’ morning he, too, fished. He
maintained the utmost reserve about
himself, as do all great people, but I
could tell from his expression, when
he looked at me that he was living
in the same dream I was.
“And then one morning Emily came
charging through the bushes on the
bank and surveyed the scene. Her
curiosity had overpowered her, as It
does all ordinary persons. She sim-
ply glared and I resolved to freeze her
if she tried to be unpleasant.
"’Well!’ she called, addressing her
words to my handsome friend. ‘No
wonder the meat has been late for
over a week, if this is how you spend
your time when you should be deliv-
ering it, Hoskins!’ And you should
have seen Hoskins leap for shore and
