LILAC LOVED IN
Spring Flower's History Is Older
Than That of China Belongs
The lilac blooms again. It Is a very
respectable flower In the matter of
age. It belongs to the undent family
of the olive and it was blooming in
China before Confucius lived, In Per
sia ages before Cyrus and Cumbyses
did anything to attract attention, and
In Afghanistan and Belnochlstnn long
before those names were known out
There was once a dispute whether
the nnme "lilac" was an Arabic, Per
sian, Sanscrit or Chinese word, and It
was a dispute which wus not Bettled
to the satisfaction of all disputants,
but no matter.
No big flowering plant, not except

He was the kind of man who seemed
to be holding a continual competillon
for the "prettiest girl" or "the most
beautiful girl." In this competition he
was sole judge and the contestants
were girls he chanced to meet or to
see anywhere. When he went into a
restaurant where women served he
cast his eyes about to find the girl
who, In his opinion, was the prettiest.
Then he took a seat at a table that
seemed to be in her zone. After a
glance he could tell you which of the
girls 'was the prettiest, which the
most beautiful. In the office of a
friend he would look about in search
of the best-looking stenographer. It
seemed to be a game that interested
him Immensely and that made even a
ride In a crowded subway car some
thing of an adventure.
Thus he was engaged one afternoon
when the offices of the business sec
tion had Just poured forth their thou
sands of young women to make their
way homeward. This time the laurels
were awarded without delay. The girl
who stood opposite him in the vesti
bule of the subway car was so fresh of
face, so gracefully proportioned, so
brown of eye and golden of hair that
she won with flying colors. In fact
she was probably the prettiest girl he
had ever seen In a subway train. In
fact she was perhaps the prettiest
Then the surprising thing happened.
The pretty girl, with quick color com
ing to her cheeks, stepped over to
him with hand outstretched.
"You're John Laurence, aren't you?"
she said with perfect conviction. "I
haven't seen you for ten years, I'm
sure. Yet I knew you In a flash."
It was surprising, because the girl
didn't look at all like the girl who
would respond so quickly to his look of
"You bet I am. John Laurence's my
name, all right."
"You don't remember me?" she
asked with a little disappointment.
"I remember your face couldn't
forget that," he assured. "But for
the minute the name has slipped me.
"Alice," she reminded. "I used to
sit in front of you in school. You
used to walk home after school, too,
and carry my books. And I used to
call you Johnny to tease you, and you
used to put the end of my braid In
your Ink well."
"So I did, so I did. You look just
the same. Let's see, how many years
ago was that?"
'Ten, wasn't It?" she figured. "We
were fifteen then and we're twenty-
five now. .That's ten, isn't It?"
Enormous satisfaction swept over
the man. He was thirty-two and a
girl who didn't look more than twenty
thought he was her own age.
"I guess I look a whole lot older
than you," he flushed.
"Well, maybe, but then I suppose
you have worked pretty hard. I heard
you had graduated from Harvard and
had gone in business with your uncle,
she said, and again the man swelled
with pride. So he looked like a Har
vard man, did he? "Weren t we fool
lsh?" she went on. "You and I used
to be such good pals, John, and then
we quarreled over some trifle."
We were more than pals, weren't
we?" said the man, making a success-
ful effort not to overdo the matter.
yet t)ager to know what role he was
entitled to play.
"Oh, you used to make calf love,
John, but that doesn't count. We'll
forget all that. But I'd really like to
see you again and tnlk over school
days." She put her hand out. "Come
and see me some time. I live exactly
where I did ten years ago. The neigh'
borhood hasn't changed. I am getting
out here tonight to see a friend."
And there the man stood glued to
the side of the car. Why he didn't
follow the girl out of the car he could
not tell. When he came to his senses
and tried to follow, the subway door
slammed in his face.
That night he took note of the facts
on hand. Though he had no thought
at first that the girl was just getting
an excuse to talk to him he was as
sured, as her face and manner had
assured him that she was not the kind
of girl to do that sort of thing. He
was sure of her story. She had simply
mistaken him for some one else.
All he knew of her was that she
lived where she had ten years ago,
that her first name was Alice, and that
she had gone to school ten years ago
with a man named John Laurence,
now twenty-five, who had graduated
from Harvard, and bore a striking re
semblance to him, Jim Kelly. After
all, the clues were not bad. As the
man thought It over, he believed that
the girl realized her mistake before
she left. Much as he admired his own
personal appearance he could not be-.
lleve that she could have looked at
him as closely as she did and not
realize that he was more than twenty-
Jim Kelly took time the next day
to drop In at the Harvard club In
town and find from there something
of one John Laurence. He found that
he lived and operated, with his uncle,
a factory, some sixty miles out of the
city. The next day was Saturday and
Jim had promised to take Kats Hick
ion, to whom he was then engaged
to the theater, but he made his ex
cuses and took 2 o'clock train to
the home of the Laurences.
He found John Laurence, and was
not flattered at having to consider
himself his double. To be sure, they
were of the same build and coloring.
Their features were similar, though
John Laurence looked his junior by ten
years. But while Jim Kelly was the
mirror, of fashion, with affected
sprightllness of manner, John Laurence
seemed indifferent of his appearance
was digging around some apple trees
in his orchard in a pair of otd army
trousers when Jim called.
"I've come on a rather curious er
rand," he began In a grandiose man
ner. "You see, I happened to meet a
little girl a chance meeting, but we
got rather well acquainted. The lit
tle girl seemed to take a fancy to me
asked me to call. She gave me lfer
address written on a card and some
how I lost It Now, I didn't want to
disappoint her. Being a man of re
sources I tried to work on what clues
bad. She spoke of having gone, to
school with a John Laurence said
that she thought we might be cousins
because of a slight family resemblance.
So I happened to be out here today
and thought I'd drop around and get
you to give me the little girl's address.
can't remember her last name, but
her first name Is Alice. She said she
lived exactly where she did when she
knew you. She said she hadn't thought
bf you once for ten years until some
thing In my face reminded her dis
tinctly of you."
Something in the last remark
brought, the color rising to John Lau
rence's face. "You lie," were words
very near his lips. He, John Lau
rence, had thought of Alice ninny,
many times and he could not believe
that his little childhood sweetheart had
never once thought of him.
"I thought you'd give me the ad
dress. I have other ways of getting
it, but I want to get in touch with her
now so as not to disappoint her."
"You 11 have to use your other
sources then," said John Laurence.
And I wish you good afternoon."
Jim Kelly did not feel entirely
thwarted by this rebuff, and two days
later when he chanced to see the
charming Alice In the subway one
evening he felt that he had been pe
culiarly blessed by fortune.
She was even more charming and
radiant than she had been the first
time he saw her.
"This time I'm going to get your ad
dress, little lady," he said. "I must
apologize for forgetting to ask you
for it the last time."
Then he noticed the circle of dia
monds on her left hand. Perhaps she
had drawn her glove off on purpose.
"Does that ring mean anything?"
asked Jim awkwardly.
"It has the most wonderful meaning
In the world. It is all such a won
derful coincidence. You know the time
saw you first I thought you were
John Laurence, and I guess I didn't
give you a chance to say you weren't.
The very next day the real John Lau
rence came to see me. He was a very
old and very good friend of mine and
now now we're engaged. Don't you
think that was a wonderful coinci
"Oh, I don't see anything very re
markable about that," said Jim Kelly.
The subway train had stopped and he
suddenly decided it was time for him
to get off. "Who'd have thought," he
said to himself with a, smile, "that old
Jim Kelly would play cupid in spite of
