HH windows of the grill room "Hr were open, and through them catno the grateful coolness of the salt breeie and the less welcome rlntter of the streets below. In one comer, at a table, under the great stag's head, Thomas Weldon lis tened with a smile more or less cyni cal to the eager voice of young Kenton Tlsdale on the other side of the tn- ble- , Presently Tlsdale's almost pleading tones ceased. Weldon coolly lighted a Igar nnd took several whiffs before ho p4R.ivod a reply "Fmtnn." he said, looking nt the other sharply, "are you sure this is not nnrelv nersonal enmity? Tlsdale regarded his interlocutor steadily. I'll admit. Tommy, be said. one of the flrst to succumb, and I m.v ii. well confess I was pretty bard hit; but the enormity of the thing didn't strike me until Jonesy started for the Lord knows where In ooum mrim; nnd Ted Ilrlno remembered rather suddenly some relatives of """"his in Alaska, where he migni mm a haven of oblivion. The worst, though, was when Snow good old George Snow got his coup-de-grnce. He sat around for two days. Then all nt once he went no n knows where. "Think of what she's done to the 'stag-corner coterie Tommy. Think of dinner this winter nud no Ted to tell a story; with no jonesy to unu fnnlt: with no George Snow to mix a salad. She's scattered them like chaff before the wind, there's only you ana 1 left." , , As Weldon listened the smile broad ened. "And you suggest," be said slowly between putts, "that I go up there and avenge your wrongs encounter this Circe and sail away with a laugh, as it were? Fenton. have you stopped to think the laugh might be with her in .twid of at her? It's a 100 to 1 shot that I fall." "No, Tommy," Tlsdale said, "I've weighed the chances, and I think you are bound to win. In the flrst place, the woman Isn't born who could make you look at her twice. That Is a draw ing card In your favor, especially with such women as she Is; then there's your money, ar 1, Anally, that devil-may-care way of yours, which you can put on and off like a cloak. "What with these and your good looks no, I'm not flattering you. I'm quite frank you should mako an easy conquest of it" Weldon shook bis head. "It all sounds very plausible, but It's not honorable it seems to me," be ob served. "Honorable!" Tlsdale burst out hot ly. "Was it honorable of her to send the others of our clique packing from Alaska to South America? Was it honorable to encourage poor, incoffen stve old Gcorgo and then seud him to the woods, and leave use salad less all winter? I tell you, Tommy, It's jour bounden duty lo go. There's no way out of it for you." When Thomas Weldon reached the hotel on the shores of the lake late that August cevulng, ho was tired and disgruntled by a hard day's travel. The object of his comlug seemed to him at that moment fantlstlc and ab surd In tho extreme. For a moment lie was tempted to take the stage back to the station and and catch the night train to town. Then ho remembered George Snow's face, nnd squared his shoulders. About the others be enred not a whit. Jonesy nud Ted Ilrlno wore their hjnrts ou their sleeves, while Feiiton Tlsjlalo had n now tale of love and sorrow us often us the seasons changed. George Snow was a different propo sition. best there was In him and she had laughed at the offer, she deserved to be punished yes. even brutally, by low Intrigue. The next day Weldon met her nnd the game began In earnest. Thereaf ter, to all appearances, be was her slave. The gossips, who congregated every afternoon ou the hotel veranda to make dollies and regulate the affairs of the place. Im'khii to wag their heads sage ly whenever Weldon and Helen Uw ton ap)Kared together, which was fre-quently. And before two weeks had passed Weldon caught himself wondering why he lutd never before taken an In terest In women: which mental atti tude alarmed him Into repeating, "lie member George Snow!" an absurd number of times, and started hi in oft at 112W p. in. for a solitary walk along the lake, at war with himself ami all the world. In the gray of twilight the follow. Ing evening Weldou. with sure, strong strokes, sent the canoe skimming along the edge of the lake', where the somlwr pines were reflected vaguely In the still water. The girl reclined on the cushions In the bow, looking at him qulzslcally. Suddenly he stopped paddling and looked at her steadily until her eyes fell. Then be beard bis own voice speaklug very softly: "I pitied them once, but now I envy them Jones and Ted Urine, and. yes, even George Snow. It Is worth while even to be spurned by you. And so, Helen. I offer myself as the fourth." She looked up. He saw a strange. wonderful light In her eyes that brought his heart to bis throat and sot his temple throbbing madly. She leaned toward blm, and the gray twi light seemed suddenly to reek with gorgeous colors. Late that night In the grill room, at the table under the great stag's bead, Fenton Tlsdale opened a telegram, read It and swore softly under bis breath. "We have met the enemy," It ran, "and we are hers completely hers." It was signed "Weldon." Indianap olis Sun. WOMEN AS WORKERS Some Figure that, After All, Are Not DtkCOUraKinc A statistician has gone to the trou ble to ascertain tbnt M per cent of all the divorced women, X! per cent of the widowed and 31 per cent of the single women are engaged In gainful pursuits, says the Cincinnati inquirer. Only about 0 per cent of the married women are similarly situated. While the great body of married women are at home attending to the domestic du ties which are naturally set down for them, there Is some hope still that the old order of things Is not going to be completely overthrown. The world will not be without homes. The fig ures Indicate that 04 per cent of the married men are supporting their wives, though the women are, of course, doing tbelr full share in main taining domestic establishments which are bulwarks of morals and good order and which keep the race from dying out. On surface analysis it may seem wonderful that 1)1 per cent of the mar ried men find enough to do to support families, when so many women are In men's occupations, but tbe earth is big and tbe ordinary attempt at compre hending tbe things to be done and tbe number of people to do them Is puny Indeed. In the long run there appears to be room for everybody the home woman, the "new" woman, etc., like wise for the womanish man and the men who depends on the labor and shrewdness of their wives to keep them going. The mixture of the sexes In the act ive, business affairs of to-day would have scared writers on political econo my twenty-live years ago. It seems plain enough, for example, that when a man on n salary gets work for his daughter In the same occupation at perhaps smaller compensation than bo receives, he Is sapping tho foundation of his own employment and prosperi ty; that, In tho long run, ho will bo simply dividing up his salary, among tbe members of his own family and driving other men out of employment The results of widespread changes of this sort look, apparently, to an en tire revolutionizing of society. But people are not stopping to study the textbooks. They are going ahead with the fashions of the time, leaving tbe pessimists and thoso who have noth ing to do but study to read up on po litical economy. A great many wise books have been Impracticable in rela tion to business affairs. If society Is going wrong in putting the gentler sex in the lines of employment that were formerly exclusively for men tho mis- If he had offered u wouwu fhol take will manifest itself somo day ln n serious way.

The Dream of the Aucs that Will Nccr lie Fulfilled. The other day we received a copy of a Kxik entitled. "How to Live For ever."

Several days have elapsed, hut nobody seems to have found the much-desired serum, nnd we fear the fountain of perpetual youth will prove as elusive to the present generation of invcstl gators as It did to the ancient optlmls tic voyagers. There are few better ways of fooling I-ather Time than following tho old advice to "keep the heart young." It Is astonishing how young a fellow can look and feel who maintains n fresh and lively Interest In siorts and pas times or has some hobby which he can ride in leisure moments. Any body who has his health can keep young. Ill-health Is the only excuse for age, and even this handicap In life's race can be overcome In large meas ure by a cheerful, contented tnlnd. That the length of human life Is gradually Increasing statistics show. It Is not Increasing by leaps and bounds, nor is there any Indication that perpetual youth shall crer be our portion. As we learn better how to live, we shall live longer nnd happier lives. We cannot hope to live for ever, and time spent in planning this Impossibility Is time wasted.

"Some enterprising nud aspiring peo ple In this city recently had a splendid opKrtunlty to add to their family por trait gallery, said an artist of local renown to a Washington Star writer. "There was a sale of tbe effects of a portrait painter and It Included scores of portraits In oil of men and women with distinguished looking features.
