that I loved blm. ponaiMy becauwe It

But I realised that I could not belp

sometime, like tbe month of March
reversed. It cornea In like a lamb and
goes eat like a lion. I refer to cases
where couples quarrel and break with
each other before marriage.
Wilbur aald that, of course, after a
' betrothal with blm 1 must drop any of
any old flames. 1 bad bat one Ed
ward Tocker and be didn't count, be
cause I considered bim too mncb like
myself. At any rate, he was very lacy
I thought my dance might bare left It
to me to drop my old flames without
requiring me to do no. However, in
Wllber I bad what I-tbougbt I should
have a man to manage me and 1 in

But somehow 1 couldn't It was I
who should bar liked to mate with
Edward If be hadn't been so easy go
ing. He hadn't been making lore to
me at least not for some time and It
would seem out of place for DM to d la
ta las a man who was not a suitor. Be
sides, we bad long been friends. So
when be called again I utterly failed
to say anything about his keeping
away from m.
1 made a clean breast of tbe matter
to Wilbur and saw the corners of bis
mouth come down and bis chin stick
out like tbe map of Spain. It was
evident that here was a case for bis
strong will to bolster up my weak one.
lie made a remark with Just a little
bit of an edge on it. but I was sur
prised that instead of being strength
ened I was nettled. He admitted that
tbe matter required of me waa embar
rassing, but essential. Doubtless I
would screw my courage op to tbe
sticking point In time. 1 didn't say
anything In reply, but doubted that 1
could screw up my courage.
There was Just a little March breeze
about this, but tbua far there had- been
so much April softness that I didn't
think the season could go bsckward
and our courtship go out with a blast.
About this time June came on. tbe
month of roses and marriages, though
Wilbur and I were not to be married
till the following autumn. He bad
I greed t upend a couple of weeks bin
racst'on with me during the summer
either In tbe mountains or at tbe sea

This. pleased me rery much, and I told
blm I would tbtnk over tbe places at
which I should like to spend this hap
py period and let blm know before It
should be Osae to go. But unfortunate
ly among my other weaknesses la la
decision, and for my life I could at
make up my mind w be ber I preferred
tbe mounts I ua or tbe seuor I knew

Then I knew a place at tbe seashore
where the bote! at which I should wish
to stop was excelleut. but a wutnttii
went there every summer whom I Ue
tested, and I couldn't bear tbe Idea of
being ahut up with ber under the ssuw
roof. . k . c
The 1st of July came round, and I
bad derided nothlug Wilbur esked
me oue day what I had done, and I
aald I had been unable to settle on
anything. I asked blm to decide the
"I know nothing about summer bo
tets." be replied. "I've never bad oc
casion to use one of tbeut. Yoif mutt
settle on the piece."
Ue bad arranged for bis outing for
two awoke from-the tith of July Just
before tbe time to go be waa rery bus
getting ready to be absent from buni
ness, and I didu't see blm for a week
Then he came around on the evtulng
of the Hih of July and asked where
we were going. I told blm I didn't
There waa a floe March wind be
tween us I told blm that I bad en
gaged myself to a strong character
that I might have some one to relr on
In such matter, and be asked me whit
matters I Intended to take under my
own care. This made me rery augry
I told him that I could make up my
mind quick enough If I wished to. and
I settled on tbe p!ace In a twinkling
He asked me to name It, and I told
blm I would drop blm a tine. The
next morulog at o I took a train for
the mountains. A few daya after I
reached my destination I wrote biui
where 1 waa and that I should be bappy
to see him. He wrote that be bad de
cided to gire up his vacation since be
waa rery busy and really should not
take tbe time
Tbia came pretty near tuaklug a per
manent break between us. I was
miffed at baring been called upou to
take tbe Initiative. Rut our betrothal
survived It and wben I returned to
the city all was made up between us
It looked as If we should bare April
weather after tbia.- but one evening an
other wind came up a good deal fresh
er than anything we ha) yt expert
enced and ended In a tornado. A cer
tain performance at tbe theater was
to be given that I wished very much
to see. bought two sests and tele
phoned Wilbur that I wished blm to
go with me to tbe play. He replied
that be bad a business engagement for
the evening and couldn't go I asked
him what I should do. and be replled
througb the telephone, mind - you. so
that tbe whole world could bear that
he was too busy to ad viae me and that
If I intended to rely on blm through
Ofe for little things like that be would
carry a load .
That provoked me. Before I bad
time to get over my buff I bad tele
phoned to Ed Tucker and asked blm to
be my attendant He aald be should
be delighted. I bad no sooner reretr
ed his answer than I was called np by
Wilbur to say that be bad succeeded
m patting off bis business engagement
and would be with me for tbe theater.
How could I be expected to know
what to say to blm at once and over
a telephone? I didn't say anything
but -Well" or "All right" or some
thing tike that, and be. being in a bar
ry, abut me off. i
I couldn't make up my mind what
to do In the matter, being rather weak
about aucb things, and bslf an boor
before It wss time to go to tbe play Ed
drove up In a carriage and. carrying a
bouquet of beautiful flowers, ran up
the steps. I met bim at the door and
took him Into tbe drawing room. I
waa about to explain the position to
blm when along came Wilbur. Wben
be saw Ed his face looked like a tbon
dercload. He said nothing to Ed. but
be said a good deal to me. As soon
aa be paused I tried to explain to him
that I waa engaged to go to tbe the
ater with both of then. At that mo
ment be canght sight of tbe flowers
rylng on tbe table.
He looked from them to Ed. a frtrhr
fnl tight shining to bis eyes; then from
Ed to me He waa the maddest man
I ver saw. and yet I waa not at fault
at alL I hadn't even bad a chance to
accept or decline tbe gift
loo-sbooJd bare beard bis talk. He
told me that be bad feared I waa a
rery weak woman and be bad foand
me not even tbe consistency of mush
stood It aa ton; aa I could, getting
madder every minute. Suddenly I
pointed to tbe door and. with flaming
eyes and cheeks, aald: i.
He subsided and started In to say
something pleasant but I repeated the
word "Qor and aald It again and
again till my voice, waa like a trumpet
sounding a charge. ' became so In
furiated that be feared I would throw

And so it waa that my engagement
with Wilbur Ernst came In Ilk a
