Deop In the heart of each wan ami
woman lies some unfulfilled ambition
toward which his efforts tend aa a
goal With Myra Darling It was a
Iler days were passed behind a
counter where a variety of neckwear
waa displayed. The remuneration was
small and served only to provide her
with a "home" and the simplest of
gowns, The watch for which bar soul
hungered might have been the moon
or the Roc's est. But mora trying
than the privations aha endured wis
the cheapness, the narrowness of bet
life, so different from the gentle sur
roundings of her girlhood.
It waa bar birthday, bar eighteenth
year, and Sunday dry free from the
aula walkers espionage, a bappy com
blnation which iryra enjoyed to the
full A long afternoon In the crisp,
cool air of the park was a bappy cli
It was turning dusk as she left the
park. The city lamps already shone in
a long line down the avenue. On the
aide streets the shadows fell black
and ugly, ..causing a few buildings to
stand out In bold relief. Suddenly a
flash from a passing automobile struck
a small, round object that glittered
near the curbing. Myra bent over to
pick It up. Had some beneficent fairy
godmother thrown the gift at her feet?
It -was a watch, and on her birthday!
She seized It rapturously and, looking
neither to the. right nor left, fled up
the steps of her boarding house; never
pausing until she stood In the ball room
she called her home. She lighted the
gas and drew down the shade, then
Dreamless examined ber new found
treasure. The small hunting case was
of gold, with no mark to Identify It,
and set In diamonds.
"Yon little beauty," whispered the
girl as she caressed it with ber fingers.
Then, with woman's curiosity, she tried
to open the back. It was difficult, but
at last Myra gasped with surprise. The
face of a young man. with honest eyes
and kindly mouth, looked Into ber own,
"I wonder If he owns the watch?"
she thought "No. It's a woman's trio-

giri-and If so he"
Myra abruptly closed the case. But
ibe could not shut out the face from
her mental vision.
She passed her evening rocking slow
ly in her chair, with a magazine be
tween ber fingers, the gentle ticking of
the watcb counting the passing hours,
That night she dreamed not of the
watcb, but of a life which the watch
typified, and through the dream stalked
'a man whose face was the face in the

in the delight of knowing the exact
hour and turning luxuriously over for
another fifteen minutes.
All day she thought about her won
derful acquisition and smiled happily
to herself. The other girls noticed it
and twitted ber in their good natured
if rather coarse way. Myra laughed,
but guarded ber secret and hurried
home to pass another evening of de
lightful possession. Three days passed,'
and, though the watch Itself was a
never falling source of delight, as the
actual realization of her dreams It was
the picture that crept Into bet heart
She told ber secrets to those honest
eyes and called him "dear friend." lie
seemed somehow to understand her
The whole world could trust you,
and Fd trust you absolutely " she told
him one night very softly. "The other
girl trusts you too? The other girl!
How sorry she must be to lose your
plcturef' " ,
Then suddenly, without any warning,
Myra awoke to the truth. The watch,'
the picture, were not hers! She had no
right to keep them. She turned to the
window and looked drearily out over
the roofs of bouses.
"I never thought of It, not once.
They're not mine. They are hers. Hers, '
and I kept them. It's the same as
Healing. I never thought"

library. She found the description in
Ibe "Lost and Found" column and
made note ogthe address with eyes
grown uilsty. ,, ,
: She put off the evil day until Sunday
and decided to enjoy to the full ber
last day of the fairy gift which waa to
vanish so soon. She slipped a narrow
black ribbon ou the watch and reck
lessly wore it all day. She did not
dare to look at It or exhibit It to the
girls, but the knowledge that It waa
ticking steadily In ber belt brought
"Can I see the lady the one who
lost ber watch T' she .asked, and she
waa at once shown into a room with
luxurious appointments. There was a
log Are In the grate, with comfortable
lounging chairs and books In every
available space. It carried Myra back
to those other days now dim In ber
"You have found my watcb How
glad I ami" The speaker came close
to Myra, with outstretched hands and
eager mile. She waa aa beautiful at
any of the women whom Myra served
during business hours.
The girl laid the watcb In the other's
hand.. Surely with all Miss Shepherd
possessed she could have spared this
toy, but It was hers, and she must have
"It was my mother's," suid Miss
Shepherd softly. "That la why I can
not thank you enough. And you will
accept this little ncknawhiigmeut?"
she said, trying to press a roll of bills
Into Myra clenched band. ;"'
"No," said Myra. "It's yours. I
want nothing" , , ,
, "But I promised a liberal reward."
"And 1 bud it-all the week. The
watch was such good company." She
did not mention the picture.
And to all Miss Shepherd's argu
ments and entreaties Myra reiterated
"No." The picture held her firm. 8he
could not take the money for that
In the end she allowed herself to
be persuaded to remain until the rain
ceased and to drink a cup of tea.
"Here's Tom. You must meet blml'
exclaimed ber hostess proudly as the
door swung open and there entered the
original of the photograph.
One look from Myra, and then ber
lashes drooped In embarrassment The
others discussed the watcb and Its re
covery. At first Myra could scarcely
follow what they said, but they were
so kind, so full of Interest about her
and her little experiences, that sfie
soon found herself chatting freely and
laughing at Tom's funny "sayings; still
she rose in trepidation to find how
late it bad become.
Tom (she had uot discovered bis oth
er name) insisted that as bis automo
bile was at the door he would take her
"Oh, nor gasped, Myra In distress,
turning to ber hostess. "I'd rather
take a car."
"Don't you like motors?" questioned
Miss Shepherd kindly.
"I've I've never tried one." admit
"Then that settles it" exclaimed
Tom, and Myra found herself hurried
to the door, with Miss Shepherd exact-
inc a promise that she would come
"Yes, do!" urged Tom as they went
down the steps. "She really means It
Isn't she jolly?"
She's very kind. How happy she
must be so pretty and sucb a beauti
ful borne, and-and you"
Myra bad not meant to say that at
alL It just slipiied out.
You bet She's the best sister that
ever a fellow had."
"Your sister?" stammered Myra, and
somehow in her surprise she nearly
missed the stop of the motor car, but
Tom caught ber.
Of course. What else did you
Mvra felt her face flush hotly. She
trembled a little, but she did not say
Just what she thought In fact, she
did not tell bim until the following
Christmas. Tom had presented Myra
