BECAUSE OF BRUIN
By CATHARINE CRANMER.
Tho most confirmed caso of bluet
wilt fly In the fnco of a sunny spring
morning especially when tho sufferer
Is a pretty girl of twenty.
Dorothy swung along over tho
smooth slopes stooping often to gath-
er wood violets or to listen to tho sing-
ing of the birds.
"It's too lovely a world to bo un-
happy In" she murmured. A squir-
rel gavo a harsh and saucy bark.
"That's right little fellow" retorted
Dorothy seating herself on a park
bench; "Just scold when things don't
suit you. I'm going to scold too and
glvo mother and daddy to understand
that 1 don't caro how bluo John Mow-
bray's blood Is or how big his bank ac-
count or how good his chances to be-
Suddenly the chorus of birds ended
In a Quavering chit-chat. . Dorothy
looked about and saw a full grown
black bear leisurely sauntering toward
her. She sprang from her seat and
ran for tho nearest roadway.
. She looked back once and saw the
bear galloping toward her but sho did
not sco two park laborers bearing
down on him. Neither did sho see a
lono young golfer strolling cityward
until she rushed directly Into him.
The force of their collision sent the'
young man's glasses flying and they
broko Into bits.
"Tho dovlll" he muttered.
"Oh I'm sorry." she gasped "but It's
really coming right after me."
"What's coming? Tho devil?"
"No you stupid; tho bear!" Dor-
othy's high-wrought tension almost
snapped and tho tears hung on her
lashes. Seeing no bear or other cause
for her agitation the young man
looked puzzled but the next Instant
perplexity gave way to n riotous smile.
Down tho road caraii the two park la-
borers with tho captlvo bear. Dor-
othy quickly snatched a bill from her
purso and flung It at tho astonished
"There! Toy for your old glasses
and stop laughing at me!" Sho lied
behind tho shrubbery nnd after her
went tho young man.
"I say!" bo stammered as ho
reached her side and trotted along
with her "I'm sorry I was na3ty about
tho glasses and you must lake this
His laugh was loo Infectious to bo
resisted and Dorothy laughed too.
Ihey slowed up as they reached tho
neat sho had vacated and dropped Into
It. Between bursts of laughter sho
explained that when tho bear had
frightened her It was galloping toward
her with never n keeper In Bight.
"it I hadn't already been wrought
up maybo It wouldn't have frightened
mo so." Then she surprised him by
suddenly asking: "If somebody tried
to make you marry a woman twlco as
old us you Just because sho was rich
and influential what would you do?"
"I'm afraid I should decline."
"But because I'm young and silly
and want to stay that way daddy
won't tako mo seriously when I de-
cllno; so I'm going to run away."
"Oh don't do that" he pleaded.
"Why not head off tho old man by
marrying n young one?"
"Well I'm suro 1 don't want to mar-
ry anybody Just now" plaintively. A
moment later sho stamped her small
foot detlantly. "And daddy needn't
try to thrust me upon old John Mow-
bray." "John Mowbray!" exclaimed tho
young man. Dorothy clapped her hand
over bcr mouth and fled.
All day Dorothy avoided her parents
because of tho scene at breakfast fol-
lowing their announcement that they
had Invited John Mowbray and Lis
widowed sister and her children to an
Informal dinner that evening. They
also oponly admitted that they had
hopes of having John Mowbray for a
son-in-law and had reason to belter
that -ho also bad such an ambition.
Their precipitate mention of the plans
caused Dorothy to begin at once to
And excuse for despising her father's
professional friend whom alio had
hitherto regarded with polite Indiffer
ence. Sho passed an uncomfortable
day and as tho dinner hour ap-
proached she mentally pictured their
guosts as a tiresomo lot although sbo
hadn't oven inquired about their num-
ber their age or their box.
In a simple dlnnor gown of white net
with a bluo girdle with her blond hair
softly knotted at the back and with
her blue eyes dcoply serious she en-
tered the living room from tho rear
Just as hor mother was greeting the
arriving guests. First her mother
presented her to Mrs. Elwood a wom-
an of fifty; then carao Miss Elslo El-
wood In her early teens and then
from the hall entered John Mowbray
and Dorothy'a father and with them
came tho young man whoso glasses
sho had shivered that morning In tho
"My nephew. Jack Elwood Miss Dor-
othy" said John Mowbray and tho
embarrassment of tho young peoplo
was happily unnoticed.
Whon John Mowbray becamo gov-
ernor that fall Dorothy's father was
appeased at losing him ns a son-in-law
and- rewarded for tho political old
given him by seeing Dorothy us tho
wife of his favorlto nephew presido
as tho mistress of tho governor's man
sion. But excopt themselves nobody

TOM AND DICK
By I8ADEL LEE.
Tom's wlfo sat before her dressing
tabic putting tho finishing touches to
hor afternoon toilet.
"Little do you know how worried I
am" Tom's wifo sighed pathetlcnlly.
"But I won't bother you with my
troubles. You have so much to bo
happy about and so many plans to
mako for tho wedding."
Dick's flancco bit her pretty lips.
"I'm not at all suro thero Is going to
bo any wedding" sho said.
"I don't even know whether to go
down to shop or not" added tho
younger woman. "Whats tho use of
getting tho things when I don't know
whether I shall want tho tho wed-
ding veil and white satin and tho
rest? But don't talk about poor ll'tlo
mo. I'd so much rather know why
you aro worrying-"
Tom's wlfo laughed softly. "First
It was tho teacup" she said. "It was
tho morning he asked mo for a lem-
on. The next livening he had a mys-
terious llttto' package when he came
home. It was a horrid sticky teacup.
"Well the next night It happened
again such a horrid old cup. That
kept on for several days. I asked htm
outright what It was all about.
"'Well you hava caught me. snook-
ems haven't you?' Those woro tho
very words ho used and then ho
laughed a little father sheepishly
and tried to kiss me. 'I didn't want
to tell you at first' he said. 'I thought
you'd mako a fuss about It. But that
new English secretary
"That new English secretary and
that was the first time that I had
even heard of the creature ho said
had to hnvo tea. They all do In Lon-
don ho said.
" 'You'vo never had tea with mo' I
said 'and now for this brazen English
secretary. But why mako a fool of
yourself by bringing tho cupB homo?' "
" 'Thats whoro tho Joko comes In'
he said laughing. 'I thought of get-
ting Miss Stcbbtns to wash them but
'"Just because I am a woman I
8up)oso you think I must do tho
drudgery. I never washed a dish in
ray life. It you want a servant you
should havo hired one and not a
stenographer' said Miss Stcbbtns.
"'I am suro I don't at all blamo
Miss Stebblns' I said."
"You did perfectly right" said
Dick's fiancee. "I know all about It.
I found Dick carrying not only one
but two cups home at night his and
the secretary's. Ho even brought
them around to wash and then he
told me. Just as Tom did you about
tho creature. Only ho wouldn't say
much and I said less. I didn't want
him to tell oti that I was Jealous and
it Is not really that. Only of course.
If that Is tho kind of man Dick Is It
ho Is tho sort who stoops to offico flir-
tations." "Havo you seen her?" Inquired
Tom's wife patting away an Imagin-
ary tear through the meshes of her
"Heavens no and I don't want to.
Of course sho is a tall willowy
blonde. English women so often nro."
The Idea seemed to occur to them
both at once of stealing unexpectedly
Into tho offlco whero Tom and Dick
held their tea orgies every afternoon.
And in less than halt an hour tho two
women had started downtown with all
tho Intense excitement ot a real ad-
venture. "It Isn't as If we were doing any-
thing underhanded" assured Tom's
wife. "For I am sure any wife has a
right to call at hor husbands office.
Do you suppose they sent "way to
London for her? I don't see why
thuy couldn't have got some honest
deserving American girl who would
have been quite satisfactory."
They had reached tho office and
Tom's wlfo went in first. Tom and
Dick were both In and showed no end
of pleasure at the visit. . They took
' thorn right Into Tom's big roomy of
"'Stick around for a half hour
more" Tom said "and you can have
tea with us. Its a great Institution
Isn't it Dick?"
Both Tom's wlfo and Dick's fiancee
smiled coldly. But It was part ot
their plot to stay. They peered around
every curve and listened for overy
sound expecting to see the willowy
blondo appear. But the only petti-
coats they saw wero worn by the
sourtaccd Miss Stobblns who sat
pounding away relentlessly at her
"Maybo wo can get the ladles to
wash up tho dishes" suggested Tom
"It's such a nuisance to havo to cart
them homo with us."
Toms wife had tier cuo and while
Dick's fiancee fairly trembled at what
she felt was bound to follow she bo-
gan: "It socras to mo that tho English
secretary had hotter do tho dishwash-
ing slnco It was tho English secre-
tary's Idea to havo tea."
Tom and Dirk began to laugh.
"That's a good one" said Tom and
then at his summons n tall fine-looking
mlddlo-agcd well-tailored man
"The wlfo flays you ought to wash
the dishes" Tom repeated with a
laugh and then ho Introduced them
nil. You boo It was Mr. Harry Harri-
son tho new London secretary of the
company whom Tom and Dick wanted
favorably to impress and not that
mythical willowy blonde at nil.

The equinoctial or line storm Is pop-
ularly supposed to happen when tho
sun crosses the line In March and Sep-
tember and Is particularly expected
about September 21. A careful tabu-
lation of the weather conditions of
half a century makes It clear that the
weather more frequently Is clear at
that exact period. The Idea was prob-
ably given birth to by some great
storm which happened to fall at the
time ot year when day nnd night are
ot about equal length.
Habits of Flowers.
Tho common "four o'clock" almost
always closes Ub flowers at that hour
and so many plants havo that inBtlnct
that Linnaeus made a floral clock of
flowering plants each of which had Its
time of closing. Tho wood sorrel not
only drops Its leaves and shuts Its
purple veined flowers when It rains
but does the same If tho ground near
by is struck with a stick. The family
of tho oxallo has tho same habit.
Cling to Primitive Custom.
Tho tendency ot tho human mind to
revert to primitive customs Is overy
day mado manifest In the games ot
chlldron for the Swiss youngsters still
play at making fiio by rubbing sticks
and the bow and arrow aro common
toys among the budding men ot all
civilized nations few of whom havo
I any such fund of Indian stories and
traditions to flro their youthful Imagl-
I nations aa have those of our own
