ed It, "nothing doing," which meant
that auiuaeiueuta were lacking. On
of the girl propnaed that they get up
a mock eloiement. The Idea caught at
once, and different plana of proceed ure
were auggeatrd. Uf courae Jenny

ment That went without aaytug. But
who waa to be tb maaculln part
of It?
Naturally at thla point there cam a

Tb elopement waa held up for
