OOTo1 Jove! What a beauty!

speaker stood in an admlnnir
attitude before the picture of a young
girl, while the one questioned answer
ed briefly: "My sister."
"O, t say, Paul, that won't do. We
tlou't put our sisters' pictures in
frames like that."
"Don't we? Well, I do. O, hang It,
Burt, don't you see that I'm busy. I
can't work while your tongue Is wag
ging. Get out of here now, and if you
won't show your face here again to
day you shall spend the month of July
with me at my home, and then you
shall judge for yourself whether that
frame Is too good for my sister's pic
ture," and l'aul Reynolds gave his
chum a good-natured push toward the
"Do you mean that? Hurrah! Why,
that worfld be worth a lifetime banish
ment no offense to you, old fellow,"
nud Hurton Smith mildly expressed his
delight by turning somersaults across
the room, walking back on his hands,
then, bringing his feet to the floor, he
shot upwards and, catching hold of a
bar above his head, he drew himself
up and whirled around the bar with
the proficiency of an acrobat, dropping
to the floor with a shout of overflowing
"Get out of this, you rattlehead!"
And, having him outside, Paul shut the
door In his face, and heard him go
downstairs at a breakneck pace which
brought the good old landlady to the
door in alarm, expecting to find some
body at the bottom with a broken neck.
"Sakes alive! That Mr. Smith again!"
Burton's walk home had a tendency
to quiet his hilarity, but that face was
still before him, and after sitting in
deep thought for an hour he sprang up
"I'll do it, by Jove! She can't feel
deeply offended, anyway, and I'll sign
only a part of my name. Better for the
future's sake to be on the safe side.
There, that'll do, I think."
Belle Reynolds stood with an open
letter In her hand, and her eyes flash

aloud. "Soft-headed idiot! Heard of

Then something like the truth swept
through her mind and her fun-loving
mind reasserted Itself, and, going to
her desk, she wrote:
"Mr. Charles Burt Your most extra
ordinary letter savors strongly of the
Wedding Bells class, but you forgot to
state whether your motive was for
'pleasure, pastime, or with a view to
matrimony.' Whatever your object
may be, permit me to say that you are
guilty of gross impertinence. My friend,
Matilda Brindle, would call you 'sassy.'

person so frank as myself. My red
dish-yellow hair, already thin on top,
hangs in ringlets about my full-sized
ears, my freckled nose Is elevated by
nature to a high degree, my teeth are
conspicuous by the absence of not a

be my one redeeming feature if I were
not cross-eyed. I am tall and command

My joints are too large to allow my

When Burlou Smith received this
mocking epistle he dove both hands
Into his trousers pockets and stood gaz
ing at his feet with a most dejected air.
No acrobatic performances now. O, no.
No occasion for them. But as the humor
of the whole affair struck him, he
threw back his head and laughed he

anticipated vacation drew near, and at
last Paul Reynolds nnd Burton Smith
found themselves In the quaint old
town of Cnstone, where they were hap
At first Burton rather stood In awe
of beautiful Belle Reynolds. Her love
ly face nnd graceful figure won univer
sal admiration, and her sweet disposi
tion endeared her to all. Burton Smith
proved to be no exception. Their mu
tual love for nil kinds of outdoor
sports threw them together constantly,
and they became firm friends. Then as
the time for -his departure drew near
he began to realize that in lenviug
Belle Reynolds behind he was leaving
ail that had made life so bright for
him during the last few weeks. Yet ho
felt that thero was no reason why he.
a comparative stranger, should claim
more than the friendship accorded him.
He would undoubtedly Lave cone
back to business with his love untold
had he not unexpectedly come upon
Belle In the little vine-covered summer
house one morning with a woe-begoue
expression and traces of tears upou her
fair face. She hastily explained that
she had been Indulging In a fit of lone
liness at the thought of her brother's
return, but the look and blush which
accompanied her words gave him new
couarge, and, taking both her hands
in his, he asked:
"May I hope, Belle, that you will
miss me a little, too, when I am gone?
Forgive me for speaking so soon, but
you have become dear to me, and I om
conceited enough to believe that you
like me. Tell me, darling, that you con,
In time, care for me, and I will try to
be worthy of your dear loye."
Whatever her answer may have been,
suffice It to say that when they emerg

later their faces bore evidences of their

Belle stopped short In her walk and
looked at him. "Then you are "

Paul went to Burton's room, and see
ing one of Belle's latest pictures in a
coctly frame, he slyly remarked:
"Eh, old fellow, changed your mind?"
"O, well, you know, she is not my
sister." But the look which he gave
the sweet face spoke volumes. Boston
