They met on the transcontinental
train going west.,' He "started from
New York, and she got on at Omaha
She was a dashing girl. He was a
bit of a swell in fancy waistcoat
and light gaiters over his shoes. She
sat near him in the parlor car, and
when the conductor took her ticket
auu iet ic aown iiKe tne steps or a
coach of 179G he saw that she was
booked for San Francisco. He was
going to San Francisco himself.
He wished he had, some one to in
troduce him, but 'he hadn't. In a little
while, though,. something funny oc
curred, and she smiled, happening to
catch his eye at the same time. He
hadn't been used to having eastern la
dies smile at him on a train. He
wouldn't make this one out. : fy
When they reached the mountains
and the scenery became grand the girl
had become so interested in the man
that she did nothing but prattle to him,
leaving the canyons to waste their gor
geous beauty on some one else. She
treated him with as much unreserve
and unconventionality as if she had
been- brought up with him. He could
only understand It on the assumption
that there was something just a little
bit queer about her. However, something,-
he knew not what, kept him
from acting on the assumption till
they were nearing San Francisco.
Then when they were alone on the car
platform she put her red lips so near
to his thilt there was nothing left for
mm but to take a kiss. Instead of
blushing or drawfng back, she burst
into a merry laugh. Then he was
more mystified than ever. v
He asked to see her to a cab when
they should reach the station, but she
told him that she expected friends
to meet her very straitlaced friends
who would not like to see her in com
pany with a man, so he must go away
by himself. He asked if he miht call
on her, and she said he might. She
would see that he got her address.
When he saw his friend Wolf ord he
; luw vyeie crossing me aiimH plains, , recounted Ms adventure. Wolford told
and there was nothing attractive, to him he could not tell anything about
look at. ; Even the" river Platte, devoid the western girls, they were so dif
of a fringe of bushes on its banks, f erent from eastern girls so unconven-
was Dereit of beauty. .He couldn't tional. At that Scarborough
stand it any longer. He took his news- hort of telling about the
paper and novels,' dumped them on the
seat Deside her, lifted his hat, threw
open his-coat the better to show the
pattern of his waistcoat and said:
"I shall be pleased if you can .find
anything among those 'to help you
while away the time in this desolate
"Oh, I don't wish to read!" she said.
"I've had enough of books lately. I'd
much rather talk."
She took up the papers and put them
on the opposite seat. He sat down
He was quite astonished at the ease
with which the acquaintance had been
made. Since he had never thus made
a lady's acquaintance before it was
natural that he should be a little surprised.
When Wolford took his best man to
meet his fiancee who should she be
but the girl on the train! '
"Charlie," she said, her eyes dancing
with mischief, "how came you to hare
such a friend? Do you know he
scraped an acquaintance with me on
the journey and he actually kissed
"Well. I'll be jinged!" said Charlie.
"And I'll never trust any girl again,"
said the best man.

A Waiter's Dilemma. 1
It was in one of the large down
town restaurants that the short lit

went for dinner one night. .
"Will you have oysters?" asked
There was an added zest iu finding ' the man, glancing over the bill of

an old friend.. - ! Witl, wh0( .Tii-r. v,
ne was astomsbed at himself
or the confidence he comjmitted to
her. He told her he had a chum liv
ing in San Francisco who was abont
to be married. He was going out
there to be his friend's best man. She
asked him a great many questions
concerning the couple who were to par
ticipate as principals whether there
was a. romance in it, how old the
groom was, the bride. Was he hand
some? Was she pretty? Were they
rich or poor? She prattled and rattled
on till she had exhausted all he knew
about the groom and had made up all
he didn't know about the bride, which
was considerable. . By this time she
knew that his. own name was Scarbor-ough,-his
friend's name; Wolford and
the bride's Merriam." She was disap.

why she said it was because that was

in the case. She said she didn't be

the affirmative. Still the waiter
did not go, but brushed 'the table
cloth with a towel and rearranged
the articles on it several times,
while his face got very red. Then
he came around to John's side and,
speaking sotto voce, said : "Say, mis

I'm not on to all these things. Will
the lady have the hassock broiled or

Not long ago there entered the office
of the superintendent of a trolley line
In Detroit an angry citizen demanding
justice In no uncertain terms. ;
In response to th6 official's gentle In

the angry citizen explained that on the
day" previous as his wife, was boarding
one of the company's cars the conductor
thereof had stepped on Ms spouse's
dress, tearing from it more than a yard
of material. . -
- "I can't'see that we are to blame for
that," protested the superintendent
"What do yon expect us to do get her

"No, sir, I do not." rejoined the angry
