"I'm eony, nits." aM the agent po
litely, "but there Is not even a berth
"Perhaps I might get In the second
cabin," suggested Madge, with a sud
den accession of hope. The agent
t ml led. '
"There are more persons going back
second cabin than there are who want
firsts," be explained. "You see, lots of
those who come over first cabin only
have enough for the second cabin on
the way home. Some of them discount
their return ticket for the little extra
money they can get that way. Of
course some one might decide not to go
at the last moment, but there are 137
applications In ahead of yours, and
there would have to be 139 passengers
not going before I could fix yon up on
"But the next?" she persisted.
"Just as bad, If not worse. I am
afraid that I shall not be able to book
yon before the end of next month."
With a sigh. Madge turned away
from the counter. She had lingered on
In Europe after the rest of her original
party had returned. She had Joined
the Worthicgtons after that but now
they were starting for the Nile trip,
and It was Important that she should
get home. There had been no hope of
obtaining passage on the French and
Hamburg liners, and she had run over
to London supposing that there would
be better opportunity.
But everywhere the same story was
told. The rush of westbound traffic
was unexpectedly heavy and there
would be no chance for a stateroom
for weeks to come. Auut Clara was
fretting at the delay, ber father had
written her that he was not well and
he wished her to return at once, and
yet they would probably be forced to
remain In London for five or six weeks.
Madge always thought better when
be walked, so she dismissed her cab
and started to walk back to the Cecil.
The busy London streets quickened
her thoughts, but these ouly served to
show how unpleasant was her situa
tion. It was a very blue face that
crossed Tom Manning's line of vision.
"Miss Howard." he cried, starting
forward. "This Is Indeed a surprise. I
had supposed that you returned long

"Returned." sho laughed dismally.
"Why, we are marooned here. W
cannot got a lnrth for love or money."
"If misery loves company you bare
lots of it," he toughed. "Let's go and
have some lunch. That may -cheer you
up a little I'll telephone Mrs. Two
mey." Madge nodded gratefully. She had
always liked Tom Manning, and they
turned their steps toward the Carle
ton. She waited while he weut oft to
telephone her aunt.
He ordered u capital lunch, for he
had a rare souse of gastronomic pro
portions, ami sho really enjoyed the
dainty meal, though she caught herself
wouderlug how much more glad she
would have been, had It been Frank
Roper whom sho hud encountered. He
was a business man, where Tom was
a mere society butterfly. Frank could
have found some way of getting her
out of the trouble; Tom was only a
Almost as though iu answer to her
question ltoper entered the dining
room and came toward them. Hts
alert bearing was In marked contrast
to Manning's rather Kylsh pose, and
yet somehow she did not feel' so glad
to see him as she had been to greet
He took a seat at their table In re
spouse to Manning's invitation and lis
tened gravel to her recital of her
"I regret that I cannot be of assist
ance," he said when she had conclud
ed. "1 made every eudeavor yesterday
to arrange a similar matter for the
relatives of some business friends, aud
the case Is hopeless. F.von the freight
ers are booked far ahead."
"Theu you are marooned, too," she
"I never permit such a situation," ha
did complacently. "My Interests art
too large to admit of a delay. My

room was booked before I came erar.

"I guess we exiles shall have to char

She left the table with relief. Some
how Roper's attitude of complacent
satisfaction was positively hateful.
She had always liked bim before.
Down In her heart of hearts she had
vacillated between the two men ew
since her coming out ball. Her prefer
ence had been for Koper until now, but
at present Tom's mercurial tempera
ment suited her mood better, and she
was glad that she had met him first
Since Frank has refused the re
quest may I take It up?" he asked as
they parted at the hotel. "I may be
able to sandbag some unwary tour
ist and take bis stateroom from him."
"If you only could!" she cried Im
pulsively. "Father Is In poor health,
and I am so anxious to get to him."
"Can you sail at once?" he asked.
"I'd like to go this minute," she cried.
"Consider It done," he said, with
mock dramatics. "I will work the
sandbag persuasion this very day."
Madge went upstairs oddly comfort
ed by the assurance, though ber sense
told her that Manning could not suc
ceed where ltoper with his Influence
It was with misgiving that she open
ed the note he sent her that evening,
but a delighted cry escaped her when
a ticket fell out. She let it flutter to
the floor when she read the letter. It
Dear Miss Howard I am called out of
town and am mailing thess to you. You
can fix It up when I see you In New
York. Hope you will nave a pleasant
passage. With regards to your aunt
and yourself, THE SANDBAOOER.
Boper called that evening to explain
that be had heard of a berth that she
might obtain four weeks later and
seemed much relieved to find that she
had been provided for.
I should have offered you my room,
he said, "bad It not been that It was
imperative that I should be In town
next week. We shall be fellow pas
sengers." Madge could not arouse great enthu
siasm ovttr this fact. A few weeks be
fore she would have been glad. But
since the luncheon she had changed. It
was unreasonable to expect hlra to
give up his stateroom, yet the compla
cent way In which he had dismissed
that possibility had Irritated her.
It was not as pleasant a trip as lto
per anticipated. Madge was pleusaut,
but there was no chance to g';t a chat
with her, and they wero wnrlng borne
before the opportunity came to put his
fate to the tyst.
He had regarded ber acceptance as a
matter of course, and her prompt aud
emphatic uegatlve put him out of sorts
with himself, tie did not come near
her agatu until they lay off quarantine
and the steerage passenger were be
ing transform! to the Kills Island boat.
The cabin passengers were hnuvlng
over the rail watching the odd churitc
tors as they tsop:d ou board the little
steamer. ltoper leaned on the rail Ih?
Suddenly he grasped her arm and
pointed to the gangway. "Isn't that
the richest jok ?" ho chuckled. "There
goes Manning, Ho protitihly got strap,
ped and came over steerage because It
was the host ho could afford. This Is
In a Hash Madge solved the situation.
"I am afraid," she said, "that we are
occupying Mr. Manning's stateroom.
That Is probably his reason for coming
third class, lie knew how anxious I
was to got home, aud that la tho way
he solved the problem. Had I known
I should never have consented."
Roper mirth changed to a sickly
smile. "1 congratulate Mr. Mauitlug."
he said as he turned away.
That eveulug Manning presented
himself at the Howards' In response to
Madge's note. "I was going to arrive
officially iu a couple of weeks from
now," he explained sheepishly. "I did
not want to see you two left a Ion In
London, and I had to get back on a big
deal I was working. I'm sorry you
saw me, though."
"I'm not." she said decidedly. "I
used to think you were Just a society
butterfly, and I'm glad to know differ
ently." "Ob, I work." he said lightly. "Only
I don't bring my business to 5 o'clock
teas, and I rather like tho teas tint's
"Just the teas?" asked Madge mean
ingly, "Do you mean" ho stammered.
Tes," said Madge. "Sine you are
afraid to appear to take advantage of
your action I suppose I shall have to
force you to propose."
"It wont take much forcing," hs
laughed. "Will your
"Gladly." said Madge.
A Profitable Inheritance.
The boatman, stolidly bonding to his
oars, looked up quickly aud said, "Illus
trisslmo, my grandfather was the hint
man of the Signer Shelley, drowned In
this bay." Saying Shelley's name, he
lifted his hat as If he had mentioned
one of the saints.
The quick mist of emotion ruse to
Carduccl's eyes at the boatman's sim
ple gesture of reverence. "I salute
thee, my friend," he said, stretching
out his hand. The rower drew In his
oars and, bonding forward, shook
bands with t'arduccl. then rowed quiet
ly on, driving out Into the blue waters.
I have since been told but I refuse
to believe It -that every boatman Iu
Spezla tells the same grandfather story
when Shelley's name Is mentioued by
visitors to the bay. "It is our little
story for the English." they say, with
a gleaming, Irresponsible amlle. "They
like It much. It Is worth a lira or two
Ura-sometlmes five." In our case, 1
remember. It was worth five And a

"I've met the most abnentmlndeil
man at last" said the man who Is al
ways looking for freaks. "I thought
I'd fonnd him la the college profewioc
who when he wsnt ujrstulrs to dress
for dinner would aheentmludedly go to
bed Instead. But that fellow was dis
placed by a young writer who would
put his foot up In a chair to tie his
shoe and then, forgetting what ho did
It for, would put the other foot up In
the chair and stand up In it. Then 1
met a woman who confessed to look
lng absentmiudedly In the back of her
hairbrush roxtetid of her hand mirror
when she wanted to see the back of
her head, and 1 thought she bad gone
