ThU U a humiliating letter for a woman
to have to writ to a man-but It ha to

course you do the Abernethy's house
.party at Lake Plttld but summer And
do you remember how ire lost our way
the afternoon wa started to climb White.
(fce am how the storm coming up we

We wtre afraid wa would Dot be belleve-l
If wo told the truth you remember ao

It seems that a few days after we left
'Lake Placid Itasel Abernethy happened
'to meet Mrs. Lee at the boat club and
thanked her for taking care of urn. Of

cat was out of the bag. And If anything
'were needed to make matters worse one
lot the guides told Mrs. Abernethy that he
had seen us coming out of the cabin st

For what seemed to them both nn

staring nt tho letter with unseeing

Hope. "She belong to quite a well-

"What nre you going to do nbout

"Jt Is for you to decide Geo" ho
nnxwered miserably. "Sly hupplness

"I must have time to think" she
said. "Come to me this afternoon
... I will glvo you my decision then.'
Late Ihut afternoon IIopo came t"

were swollen from weeping she wn

"Jarvls" she began "1 have spent
the whole day trying to decide what

a case a gentleman has no alternative

"But I am going to marry you"

"May may I klM you good-by my

Her answer was to throw herself
Into his arms. For a long minute
their lips clung together their hearts
throbbed In unison; then she struggled

The next morning Hope very white
and shaken sent for Hook showed
him the letter from Inez Machln. and
told him of Geo's decision.
"Shucks" aald the old seaman after
he heard the story "there ain't no
more call for you to marry that gal
lootcnant than there Is fer me to.
'Cording to your story and her story
too she ain't caught you with the
goods. She's Just trying to put one
over on you lootenant"
"That's the way It looks to me.
Hook but Geo won't see It that way.
She Insists that the only honorable
thing for me to do under the circum-
stances Is to marry Miss Machln.' I've
tried to argue with her but she's ada-
mantine." "Just you wait till I've had a talk
with her" said Hook rising. "Don't
you do nothing foollxh lootenant un-
til I get back. I'll soon talk those
story-book notions outen her bead.
Don't you worry . . . I'll fix things up
Two hours later Hook returned. One
look at his face showed Hope that be
hnd met with no success.
"I'm much obliged to you. Hook"
said Hope weorlly "but I knew It
would be useless. When Geo once
makes up her mind there's no use In
trying to change It. You will look after
her. Hook won't you?"
"You bet 1 will lootenant" said the
sailor mopping his eyes with a vivid
bandana. "I'm a pretty tough old
salt hut I'll do my best to be a father
"And Hook" said Hope with a trace
of embarrassment "If you If she
should ever need any money you won't
hesitate to let me know will you? I
haven't much besides my pay but
whntcver I have. It's Geo's and yours
for the asking. I can go awuy with
an easier mind If I can have your
promise Unit you will call on me In
cose of necessity."
"Don't let that worry you looten-
ant" said Hook grasping the ofllcer's
hand In his great sun-burned puw.
"We'll get along all right 1 reckon
nnd If we don't I'll let you know."
IIopo had already wired the navy
department that the chances of finding
the fonnuln of Doctor Hurke's Inven-
tion were almost negligible and asking
tlmt sixty days learo of absence bu
granted lilin. The following morning
ho received a telegram from Washing-
ton granting his request. Whereupon
he wired Inez Mnchln:
Will you do me the honor to marry meT
The department has granted me sixty
days leave and I am starting Hast Imme-
diately. A few hours later he received her
I have announced our engagement.
Owing to the shortness of your leave we
will be married soon after your return.
That evening saw IIopo boarding the
ferry which connected at Oakland
with the castbound mall train.
Inez Machtn was undeniably a beau-
tiful girl tall slender and as lithe
nnd sinuous as a panther.
"I knew Uiat you would come Jar-
vls" she said as she greeted hlra In
tho library of her home. "It was ter-
ribly embarrassing for me to bo com-
pelled to write you as I did . . . but
t else coutd I do? You know as
'i as I lo that though society Is

Impossible Some of my best friends
have cut mo on tho street and I wasn't

Hut everything seems to have been

gagement. I'll try to make you n good

wo can bo happy together Jarvls?"
"I hopo so" he answered coldly.
"When Is when nro we to be mar-

"There seemed nothing to.be gained
by waiting" she answered easvy
"And beirlde." the added "that will
give us a month for our hoBeyaeooo
before your leave expire. By the
way where are we going on or wed-
ding trip. Jarvls?"
"I haven't glen It a thought" he
answered miserably. "Anywhere that
you wish Inez."
"Don't be so enthusiastic about It"
she exclaimed with a sadden burst of
anger. "One would spjio that you
were going to be buried Instead of
married. You're anything but a cheer-
ful bridegroom. You treat me as
though 1 had the smallpox."
"You know as well as I do that t
don't love you." be aasweml brutally
"and that I am marrying you only be-
cause I feel that 1 ought to. I'll be a
good husband to you. Inez but I can't
be a lover."
"At any rate you can pretend to be
one." she replied. "There U nothing
to be gained by either of us letting the
world know the truth. And now sup-
pose you look over this list and se If
there are any others to whom you
would like Invitations sent"
The next fortnight was crowded
with pre-nuptlal gaieties; luncheons
teas dinners receptions dances the
ater parties for. In spite of Inez as-'
sertlon that her friends bad ostracised
her. there was no lack of entertain-
ment in her honor. Nor could Hope
detect any signs of coolness In the at-
titude of those of her friends to whom
he was Introduced. If they believed
the stories of her Indiscretion tbey
certainly did nothing to show their
"That Lieutenant Hope Is a perfect
dear" Angelica Pembroke had re-
marked to a group of women at a tea
one afternoon "and Inez Is mighty
lucky to get him. Hut he always has
such a sad look In his eyes when he Is
talking to you that one gets the feel
Ing that he Is hiding some terrible
sorrow." Which nccurstely summed
up the opinion of the women.
"Hope's a good sort" said Iteggle
Van Arsdole to the men with whom he
was playing cards at his club. "What
gets me Is how a gh'I like Inez Machln
happened to rope him In he's not at
all her sort And the funny thing
about It Is that she has an Idea she
can twist him around her little finger.
He's quiet and doesnt' say much but
all you have to do Is to take one look
at that Jaw of his to see who Is going
to be the boss."

The day after Hope's departure for
the Hast Clto and Hook returned to
Valdavla and reopened the little cot-
tage about which clung so many sad
and happy memories.
"We must look things In the face.
Hook" said Geo the next morning
"and decide what Is best to do. I
have only a few hundred dollars left
from the sale of daddy'a books and
that won't last us long. I must Qnd
some kind of work."
"Now don't you get to fretting about
things. Miss Geo" said Hook assum-
ing a confidence that he was far from
feeling. "We'll get nlong somehow."
"It's only Inviting trouble to talk
like that" she said severely. "You
know as well as I do Hook that I
must go to work."
Then why don't you get a Job In one
of them public libraries?" he asked.
"That sort of work pays well and It
"I've thought of that" Bhe replied
"but I And to get a position as libra-
rian you must get a diploma from'a
library school or college."
"You could get a Job as stenog-
rapher I reckon" he suggested.
"No" sho assorted "I nm not fltted
for that either. It would take me an
hour to pick out a letter on a type-
writer and I can't write shorthand
either. Tho truth Is Hook I am not
fltted for anything except to keep
house. I know how to cook and sow
and to make bread but there lire thou-
sands and thousands of girls who can
do those things as welt as I can. What
wouldn't I give to have learned how to
do something practical."
"Now don't you worry none. Miss
Geo" said the seaman soothingly.
"I'm going to start out and get a Job
tomorrow. Everything goln' to turn
out nil right"
"Hook" she demanded suddenly "I
want you to promise me something."
"What Is It Miss Geo?"
"I want you to promise me first"
"All right I promise."
"I want you to give me your word.
Hook" she said earnestly "that no
matter how much wo may need money
you will never let Mr. Hope know."
"Hut Miss Geo" expostulated the
sailor taken off his guard "the very
last thing the lootcnant said to me
wuz 'He sure and let mo know Hook
If Miss Geo needs any money.'"
"If jou ever tell him" sho declared
passionately "I'll never speak to you
again. Oh I Just couldn't stand that
I couldn't" and sho burst Into tears.
"There there. Miss Geo" soothed
tho sailor awkwardly stroking her
bowed head "Don't take on so. Of
course 1 won't let the lootenant know
If you don't want me to but hanged
If I can see why."

picked up a magazine which he was
Idly perusing when his attention was
distracted by the sound of voices com-
ing from the adjoining room the door
of which was ajar. This room. he.

nccustoraed to receive her friends.

"Your Lieutenant Hope Is a perfect

saying. "Everyone Is crazy about
him. Yt'e are atl wondering bow you

and serious not nt all your sort"

"Of course I won't repeat anything
you tell me dear" said Miss Lang-
ham. "Well It's really awfully amusing"
said Inez and Hope could hear ber
laughing softly. "I met him last sum-
mer at Abernethy's. They had a house
party you know at their camp on
Lake Placid. One afternoon Jarvls
and I started to climb Wblteface
mountain but we lost our way In the
woods and to make matters worse a
terrible storm came up. Fortunately
.we found a deserted cabin . . . and
there we spent the night Jnrvls be-
haved beautifully ... he never
slept keeping guard all night though
we had to remain there till morning.
There were only two rooms in the
place. I slept on Uie bed In one of
them and be Insisted on sitting up In
the other. The next morning we man-
aged to And the trail again and made
our way back to the Abernethy's who
were worried to death about us. I
knew perfectly well how they would
all raise their eyebrows If we told
them that we had spent the night to-

suaded Jarvls that we bad better tell
them- that we had spent the night to-
gether wltli the Lees who have a
camp on the lake. A few days later
the camp party broke up without any-
one suspecting anything. Jarvls was
ordered to the Pacific coast and 1
never expected to see him again. Hut
last month Alien I was visiting Lucille
Allen In Washington I sat at dinner
one night next to a very well-known
lawyer. He had had more champagne
than was good for him and he was very
talkative and confidential. In the
course of our conversation something
was said about Jarvls and the lawyer
" That young man Is going to be one
of the richest officers In the navy one
of these days.'
" 'Nonsense' I answered. 'I happan
to know that .he hasn't anything ex-
cept his lieutenant's pay.'
"'And I happen to know' said the
lawyer 'that he Is tho sole heir of

"He didn't" Inez confessed: with a
shade of embarrassment "I proposed
"Whatl" exclaimed ber visitor In-
credulously. "Well not that exactly." said Inez
laughing "but I wrote him a letter
saving that my friends had learned
that we had spent the night together
In the cabin that I was facing social
ostracism and that he owed It to me
to put an end to the gossip by coming
East and marrying me."
"You didn't . . . You're Joking.
Inez." Mls Langham ejaculated In
shocked surprise. "Yoa couldn't do
such a thing."
"I did." said Inez unabashed. "And
It worked like a cbartn. Within a
week after I wrote hlra he wired me
asking me to marry him. He's dread-
fully quiet nnd serlousof course and
we haven't much In common but once
we are married I'll do ?s I please."
"I think." said Miss Langham. Icily
as she rose "that It Is the most cold-
blooded shameless thing I ever heard

bottom of my heart I only wish that
I were free to tell him what sort of a
woman he Is about to marry."

"Eavesdropper" she sneered.
"I may be nn eavesdropper" he an-
swered "but thank heaven I've not de-
scended as low as you have. I only
hope that I shall never set eyes on
your deceitful face again."
"Hut you're not serious . . . you
can't leave me now!" cried Inez hys
terically. "Why. the Invitations are

VANTAGE AND MEAN ECONOMY.
Mow to Keep Them If They Are Not
to Be Used the Same Day Some
Recipes for Use of Left-Over
Of all the left-over remnants of food
from the kitchen bread Is the mast
common perhaps and many pieces
nre dall thrown away which a little
thought would turn to excellent use.
If the Wt-over pieces are not utilized
the same day an excellent plan Is to
wrap them In pieces of waxed paper
and store them In a stone Jar. They
will keep well for a week In this way.
Dried Crumbs for Stuffing and Meat
Frying Put the crusts nnd small
pieces In a baking pan and dry In the
oven without burning. They may then
be pul through the food chopper nnd
stored In dean mason Jars until want-
ed. Tbey may be used as a basis for
meat croquettes poultry stuffing and
French toast may be made from the
whole slices of left-over bread. It Is
an excellent luncheon pick-up dish.
Heat nn egg and add a little milk. Dip
the slices of bread In this nnd fry a
nice brown In hot drippings. Servo
with butter. Jelly or marmalade.
Bread Custard Pudding. Cut the
bread in dainty shapes and butter lib-
erally. Make a plain custard of eggs
milk and sugar. Put In baking dish
and float the buttered bread on top.
Sprinkle with grated nutmeg and bake
In a quick oven until brown. This Is
To make croutons for the various
soups so much relished In summer cut
the bread In cubes and fry In butter
or dnpplng Just before serving with
the nup. Add five or six to each plate
"f soup. These are delicious with al-
most auy soup.
Bread Jelly for Invalids. Scald (he
stale bread freed from crusts. Mash to
u paste until of mushllke consistency.
Add a little sugar and flavoring mold
chill nnd serve with cream.
Sterilized bread crumbs are especial
ly valuable for the young children In
the household. A Jar should be kept
filled with these. They may be heated
when wanted and sprinkled In soft
eggs soups milk fruit Juices and in-
deed anything eaten by very young
children where fresh bread Is often
