A BIT OF BRAID.
HE turned her head very slightly,

' tho narrowing of her eyes with.
sudden anger, and the tilting of her
"Clumsy!" she said In a voice ringing
with scorn. Shq caught up her skirt,
just raising it from the ground, and
lmstcncd on. But she threw a few more
or less acceptable home thrusts ovfer
lier shoulder as she went.
"I can't think what you have been
doing with yourself lately. Not Im
proving, anyway. And you won't get
on in tiio direction you are taking, I can
assure you. It makes me Very doubtful
as to the truth of all your yarns of con

you saw the braid hanging. You could
not be so bllndg that."
Sho gavo the offending skirt, with the
loop of braid dangling uncomfortably,
a further hitch. She had tho daintiest
ankles tho word expressed her alto
getherand the man following her
made no objection.
It was, Indeed, his continued silence
she seized on next to misconstrue.
"At least," she said, with sisterly
straightforwardness, "you might apologize."
They had reached the landing stage you say such an exceedingly nice young
where the boat was moored. The girl I mau, while you are about It?" sho

fore she spoke.
So he was given the opportunity of
speaking, and this time he availed him
"I do apologize," he said, "very hum

his eyes did not, however, accord
wholly with, such an attitude.
"Well really " she began, but he
"I will go further you will grant It is
a long way further I will explain."
"There seems room for It "
He was quite a genius at seizing his
chances. He took her words as a con
cession, and dipped his sculls into the
water at the same time.
"I shall be able to talk so much better
when we are moving," he said, artfully.
I fancy my stroke may prove as
worthy of comment as your brother's,"
he added. He was still smiling, and he
noted, with growing satisfaction, that
so was she.
"Well, of all the- "

as she could.

disguised, most charmingly disguised,
as a piece of braid! And I could not re
sist It. I was only afraid you would
think I had been suspiciously quick
for a brother.'' . ,
"I Just wasn't thinking," sho admit
The mood for confession grew on him
"Or that you might look round," said
"I wish "
"No, don't say It! Hear me out first
Honestly, I was not entirely actuated
by motives of mere selfishness, as
might at first appear. I put It to myself
like this: Here Is a charming girl going
to spend a most perfectly delightful
summer afternoon on the river, with no
more exciting companion than the
brother she has known from her earli
est days, whose thoughts are as open to
her as her own; who hasn't a peculiar
Ity, or even a virtue, left undiscovered,
I argued with myself about It. Should
I let such a paltry thing as the lack of
an Introduction prevent me from giving
this girl a treat "
"Oh," she cried, "you really an
"Yes," he said, "It stands to reason
oven as a study, a sort of unexplored
continent, so to speak; a jstrange young
man, In such a case, must present him
self In the light of an acquisition."
Her eyes were dancing. "Why don't
the calmness and ease which only can
come to her sex through practice and
long suffering. She was seated with
tho ropes In her hands before sho really
looked up at tho man who had followed
her Into the boat by this time.
"Now let me see the stroke which
takes captive your best girls," she was
paying, and then her eyes met his.
Though It would have seemed more
appropriate that ho should be tho one
to blush, It was to her cheeks the color
"I will go ono better,". said he, "with
your permission. Such an exception
ally nice pair!" and ho bowed.
"Oh, you nro dreadful dreadful!"
But she did not say It as a fact to bo
deplored. Sho looked away from tho
soft summer landscape, down to tho
edge of her sergo skirt with Ita trim
ming of braid and the fateful loop.
"They do sew these so Insecurely,"
she said. "You haven't a pin to spare?"
"It seems almost a pity," sold he,
while she busied herself over It; "but 1
suppose It will be Just as well now."
The nfteruoon was, as he had said, de
lightful, and his swift stroke left. noth
ing to be desired. It was not cold, after
all, and she never gave another thought
to the cape until she saw It, when nt
last they got back, hanging deserted on
the bout house door, where her brother
had left it when he arrived there to find
The brother and sister were very
alike In disposition, aud took things
lightly nnd as they came. So he never
openly resented her desertion perhaps,
as her new friend pointed out. he. too.
had his more than adequate compensation.
This is Just a story of the Inevitable.
For the man of resource was somethlnc
of a character reader, and he had look
ed at the girl before, he stepped.
iihe called It, In her kindest moods, an
anticipation, but he maintained that he
gave the Incident Its most appropriate
title when he named it a "forerunner."
And this it wns.
The weather favored them, and his
visit lengthened from a week's end to
a week and more. Ample time for a
man of such ready methods to win for
himself a girl not Indisposed to bo won.
Thus his visit to the brother ended In
his marriage with the sister an old
tale, but often a very pleasant one.
It was later In the season, nnd boat
ing interests had given way to tho ne
cessity of stock-taking In fashionable
wearing apparel, and discussions on the
relative merits of new and antique fur
niture. "I could almost wish," she said sweet
ly, "that It was possible to trim a white
satin wedding dress with braids In a
sort of squiggly pattern of loops and
"If you contemplate having one loop
pendant to trip me up during the cere
mony," he said, laughingly, "I am off."
"Then, perhaps, It Is just as well to
reserve braid as a trimming for sere
and cloth," she said.
