"If It's all the same to you s'posln'
we got married," Dennis Bayue said
with an engagingly embarrassed grin.
Ware Norton, his sweetheart, stared
at him as though he were some strange
and repulsive object, answering: "Of
all things ! I like your way of putting
things! Oh, I do!"
"Mighty glad" to hear it hope It's
as much as 1 like you," Dennis re
turned sheepishly he was unconquer
ably shy, withal so naive he had not
sensed her undernote of sarcasm. In
deed, he took all things at face value
being himself almost sinfully given
to speaking exact truth.
"Tell me Just how did you come to
think of It?" Ware queried, amuse
ment drowning out her sense of maid
en outrage.
"Why I reckon it was because you
made me always teasin' me and say
In' no other girl should have me you
know .vou been at that ever since
you put up your hair."
Ware flung up her hands laughing
aloud peal after peal until tears ran
down her cheeks.
At last she gasped : "So my sins are
finding me out! Denny I can't be
lieve it. Can't understand how you
could pay attention to my foolishness
Why don't you know If I really cared
about you that way I'd have been
standotlish and chilly as an Iceberg?
But you tempted me always blushing
up behind your ears and making me
nretend harder than ever. And It
pestered other folks so finely "
"You mean Duncan and Jinny?
Denny interrupted. "I have felt right
down sorry for 'em while do you
mean to say you got pleasure from
makin' those two miserable?"
Ware nodded defiantly. "Maybe It
was wicked," she countered. "But
they've no business to be such softies
couldn't they understand?"
"No more than I could," Denny an
swered dully. He had paled through
his healthy tan, his month had set and
there was a sudden hardening of the
whole face. He lifted entreating eyes
to Ware's face, going on: "Honey
say you're jokin' now. Say you didn't
really play with the three of us? It
hurts to think you could. Whyl I'd
e'en a-most rather see you dead, with
white rosebuds all over you, than
think you could do tills act lies Just
to make the rest of us suffer."
Ware Hushed a deep scarlet.
"If you have nothing better to talk
about suppose you go home," she
said, rising. "If you or any of you
had had common sense you'd have
seen It was all a game one I couldn't
make you play unless you chose to
do It. I liked you that I don't deny.
I like you still If liking will satisfy
you. But when It comes to murrylng
you well !
I "My husband, if ever I have one,
must he a man. You're just six foot
two of good looks, good temper, good
humor with no more will of your
own than a baby not as much as
some babies I've had to wrestle with.
Maybe you can't help It brought up
tied to your granny's apron strings.
I'll be bound she'd have known better
about my fooling and all. If you
had Inherited her grit, as you will her
money, I'd take you whether or no.
But that's out of the question so
here we play quits. The man I marry
must do all his own courting with no
help from me."
"I'll be sorry for him when he gets
you and sorrier for you," Dennis said,
turning from her to walk stately
away. Ware listened to his galloping
horse with a quick shiver, as if some
thing vital, but hitherto unknown had
been violently torn from her con
Orphaned almost from birth, an
heiress, and badly spoiled, she had
given scant promise In childhood of
the beauty that flowered later, an elfin
beauty, something eerie, Indeed, draw
ing almost unawares. It was like a
deadly weapon in hands not criminal
but mischievous.
Moreover her nature had been
warped by pitying comments through
out her childhood, open slights when
she got beyond very small girlhood.
All along she had craved praise, con
sequence, flattery.
To have gone away to her convent
school an ugly duckling and come from
thence a creature of Infinite charm,
had not been wholesome. She hud
chafed at tier environment She fitted
as 111 Indeed among the provincial
gentlefolk as a gorgeous tropic bird
among larks and linnets.
But she did not revolt openly her
grim guardian aunt would have no
other. But once she was free the
world should be her province, all its
wavs nnd wonders she would seize
upon and enjoy.
Meantime she would practice . K
woman arts upon such stuff as late
offered; this not with cruel Intent hut
In sheer youthful selfishness.
Sometimes when Kate shuffles
cards she stacks them unfairly. As
when she threw across Ware's path
Lionel Deerlng, Kngllsh, bigb-bred,
widely versed In all the ways and
wonders of the earth, who being rt
mantlcally encountered, coming to the
rescue when Ware's car had indecent
ly gone amiss, captivated her almost
In a week lie had managed to make
himself free at her aunt's house; he

begging her to marry him at once he
had everything beautifully planned.
A cablegram made it imperative for
him to go home by the next boat ; If
she would meet him at the little re
mote chapel, a uiile off the road to
town, they could be married, and
away before anybody thought to
hinder them.
Ware listened, her heart beating
wildly. She was under spell, fascinat
ed as a bird by a serpent. Yet she
did not give in all at once; her new
lover had to go Into high heroics be
fore he won her to his will. Money,
what was it? He scoffed at the men
tion of it.
But, If she insisted, she might fetch
with her the bonds Miss Ware kept
always locked In the home safe. They
belonged to her niece, whom she wor
shiped as much as she worried. And
she had hated Deerlng from the very
first, so any appeal for her counte
nance was out of the question.
Possibly Ware was hypnotized. Cer
tainly she was far from happy upon
the October noon when she whirled
away from home and safety, toward
she knew not what. Her heart beat
riotously now galloping, now almost
stopping dead. She was going alone
she had told nobody anything. Deer
lng had Impressed It upon her that
in such secrecy alone lay safety.
He had made It appear reasonable
but away from him something of doubt
and dread awoke. It Impelled her to
something Impossible a telephone to
call to Denny from a roadside shop :
"Meet me at the little church at one
o'clock sharp."
And she knew, as she made It, the
summons would be answered, albeit
she had hardly more than spoken to
Denny since the day of explanation.
She did not know It, but Denny had
but just answered another call one
that made him shudder, then swear
between clenched teeth. And after
Ware's message he did some Inde
pendent calling talking low but
welghtllv to several folk, apparently
in authority, lie might be sol'l but
he could put two and two together.
So as soon as he had set things
properly in motion, he hurled himself
Into his swiftest car and set out at
reckless speed to keep tryst with his
sometime scorner.
She was waiting at the church in
a fever of Impatience, of sick appre
hension. Her straining ears caught
the purring of the car half a mile
away, but the tense face did not relux
until she saw Denny rushing toward
her, his face pale and grim.
Under breath he was murmuring:
"In time! Thank the Lord !"
Aloud he said pitifully, as one
might speak to a soul In grievous
pain: "You need not say anything,
dear only listen I Deering Is going
back without you, upon a requisition
from Scotland Yard. Never mind how
the authorities knew he was here
they shall never guess what game he
was playing. Sheriff Johns will keep
him safe and quiet. We met him
just a mile away ; I took the license
from him It had been left blank.
How about using It to complete the
elopement and stop the mouth of
are bowed her head. Speech was
beyond her. But as Denny handed her
Into his swifter car, she said choking
ly: "Denny I know I don't deserve
you but, oh, I'm so glad to get more
than my desert."

Ancient Egyptians Used Bark From
a Tree That Flourished Only in
That Country.
Papyrus was manufactured by the
ancient Kgyptlans by taking a sheet
of thin bark from a tree which It
seems grew only In Egypt, and laying
it flat upon a hoard, and then laying
a cross layer over It, the materials
having been previously moistened with
water made slightly glutinous.
The sheet thus formed was pressed
and dried In the tin, says the Detroit
News. The placing of two layers of
the bark In this manner across each
other was Intended to strengthen the
texture of the sheet, for the fibers, It
was found, were ver y i asily separated
and torn so long as they lay wholly In
one direction. The sheet when dry
was finished by smoothing the surfa
and prepared to receive Inscriptions
made by means of a pen fashioned
from a reed or a quill.
The rolls of paper nnd parchment
were oidy used for Important writings
which it was Intended permanently to
preserve. For ordinary occ asions tab
lets of wax nnd other similar ma
teriais were used, upon which the writ
er traced the characters with the point
of a Steel Instrument. The head ot
this Instrument was smooth and
rounded, so that any words which
the writer wished to erase might he
obliterated by smoothing over again
with It the way on which they had
been written.
