I happened to be sitting In my den.
writing, the following afternoon, when
glancing out of the big window that took
tip the beach, 1 caught sight of A woman
walking near the water, I picked up my
binoculars anil focnsed them on her. It
proved to be MIm Graham, dressed In a
rlJInjr-hnblt. and with a liroml felt hat
on her head. She wu walking In a
somewhat almjess fashion, skirting the
waves. a though oh were playing with
them. I jaw hr glance once nt the Ship
and once In the direction of my houne.
I put down the glasses and laid my
paper aside. When I went down-stairs
I routed Charter out of a sound sleep In
the kitchen.
"Do you remember how to make ten
good ten?" I asked him.
"Yr, Mr. Felix. Aren't you feetlne
well, sir?"
"Quite well. Please make tome tea
that shall b ready to serve In about an
hour, and set out a box of those salty
biscuits. Set the small table In the din-tog-room
out In front of the door, with
two choir, and be ready to nerve e lady
and myself."
."Ye. .Mr. Fellr." Charles showed no
surprise, though he had never received
such nn order since we had been at Alas
talr. I picked tip a cap. ami left the house.
As I did so I notice! (hit MIm Graham
had stopped walking and was gathering
shells. Half way to her. and she was
still Inorbed in the shells, which are
quite unusually beautiful here; three-
junera or tne way. and she was still
playing with them. I had almost reached
her. and was raisins my cap to speak.
wore nc turned and aw me. A flush
of surprise roe to her cheeks.
"Good afternoon."
"Good afternoon, Mr.-Hermit. Am I
poaching on your preserves J'
"Not In the least . I make yoo free
of the dty."
There was a light In ber blue eyes
which I discovered that I remembered,
but a found her rldlng-hablt new and
wonderfully prepossessing I was" taking
stock of It when she Interrupted me
"I left my horse tied back In the
woods. Ilaren't you ever seen a ridlnz
habit before?"
'"Yes. I beg your pardon, but lt' so
very becoming-.
Again the quick flush, and an Instaat'n
ioo at the sanil. Then she laaghed and
hook her rldlng-crop playfully at me.
"IJeware, Mr. Hermit. Any man might
My a thing like that, but I expect other
thlngi from you. That's one of the pen
alties pf your position : you must be dlf.
ferent. I look for the flavor of romance
and adventure at Al-tlr." 8he laughed
at my puzzled face. "Shall I go back
home again?"
"No. I will try to remember. Did you
come to see the sunset from the cliff?"
"Yes. My aunt has a headacho and
has stayed In bed alt day. I bribed our
waiter to save me a little supper and
send It up to my room at 8 o'clock, .
jou see. I'm free of the club and din
ner." She spoke Impulsively, as I Im
agined she might domany things, and
glanced at m whimsically to see of what
I was thinking. She bad soma of the
nrtleesness of a, child playing truant
from school. "I do hate stupid conven
tions, such as chaperons," she added, "es
pecially In summer."
We. .walked past my cottar, whleh
Miss Graham looked at with much' curt
oilty, asking we a hundred questions
about It bow I hvl discovered It. whr
I, had bought It, how it was fashioned -In
side, aqd how I ilkl ray marketing. I
told ber I had the same butcher they bad
at the. club.
"Oht" she said. "I half hoped you
lived by hunting and Ashing, but I sup
pose you'd rather Indulge In ocaslonal
beefsteaks." '
"I'd rather live that way," said I, "but
Charlef, my man, wouldn't like that. Ha
has n very cultivated palate."
When we came to the top of the cliff
1 felt like another Ilalboa discovering the
Pacific. In front of us lay the entrance
to the river, the sloping away of the
dpnes to the low. level field of meadow,
grass, and the distant background of the
pines. Here ami there the fields were
dotted with baeb marshmallow. windfalls
delicately pink: along the sedgy banks
grew clumps of cat-tails, their brown pen
lions stiff like so much bronze, ,U a lit
tle landing-stage, where the rlrer hart
hollowed out a harbor In the bank, rode
ray cat-boat, the sail tightly furled, the
mast rocking gently with the tide. A
wo looked a flock of sand-snipe rose from
the tall rank grasses beyond tlio river and
spread themselves like a sail against the
western sky. Nature never looked so ab
solutely peaceful.
"Jyxk," I said: a heron, red-lcggcd,
wblte-bodled, rose from the sedges and
flapped his way up the stream. He called
to his mate, a low, plaintive cry.
"It is beautiful," said the girl. "I
don't wonder that you love It."
'Vook,'' I Mid: tho sun' kaleidoscope
was changing, the pale yellows deepen
ing, the pinks turning to reds, to oranges,
to brilliant, blazing golds. Again It
shifted and softened red and yellow
were saffron, orange the color of coral.
Yet again, and the whote west was gold
en with a purple border, and then as the
purple gained and the gold sank we couM
see the army of pines sllhoutted against
the dropping fire,
"They come, the armies come!" I cried.
"See the spears, see the crested horse,
mm, see the banners In the rear!"
I turned and her eyes were shining,
exulting In the beauty of the scene. Then
we were silent for a time, until the blaze
had softened and the battle dropped to a
harmonious peace.
I found a seat for her, and stretched
myself beside It.
f "Tell me what yon think." she said
"the stories you make up when you come
here night after night."
I had known how that view of the sun
set quiets, yet I was surprised to llnd her
so still and calm. It seemed as though
we had known each other for Mine time.
I have romanced to myself Idly from
that cliff when the yellow light lies over
the sea and the river and the pines, and
I drew upon my memory only to find It
well stocked. Morcorer. I learned much
ot the river people, of the blnU that live
In the marsh and f the animals ot the
woods, I had watched the purple grackte
build hts nest and the blue jay forage for
his offspring when the summer was
young, ami I knew many a story of the
sea-gulls. Miss Graham was a flattering
listener, her lips slightly parted, her eyea
alight with Interest.
"You must be hungry," I aald at last,
lunch at noon, no supper until 8. I
should like to offer you my cottage's hos
I waa looking for the flush that I
knew would come, and was not disap
pointed. "Thank you." she answered, "but, you
see what would people think If they
looked In your dlulng-room window and
saw me taking tea alone with you)
"I'eople don't look In my dining-room
window," I answered.
- She shook her head so decisively that
I knew she meant It.
. "At least, we will have a cup of tea
on the beach, I said, "out of doors oh,
a doten yards from the cottage, where
alt the world may see us If they choose."
"Splendid! she cried, and. Jumping up,
led the way down from the heights.
On the smooth sand some distance
from my door Charles had placed the lit
tle table. Two chair faced each other:
plate, napkins, arid a center-piece of
beach-marshmallow were the decorations,
and my man, as straight and rigid as an
Kgyptian Idol, stood a short distance off.
Miss Graham gave a little cry of pleas
ure. "It's like the Arabian Nights!" she ex
claimed. "The whole thing seems to
hare sprung out of the sand."
I seated her at the table.
"You may serve the tea, Charles,"' I
He brought forth the tea-pot. and was
about to pour the tea Into our cups when
ills Graham expostulated. "Its the
woman's place to do that!" she exclaim
ed, and Charles surrendered the tea-pot
Into her care.
"How many lump of sugar?" she
asked, with the delicate superorlty of a
hostess to a guest.
"Will you have lemon or cream?"
There, were both; I thanked my stars that
CliArle was, so thoughtful.
"Imon."v' '
I 'received my tea-cup and a moment
later had the satisfaction of hearing Miss
Graham say tint the brew was delicious.
"And sueb pretty cups! I don't believe
you're a bit of a hermit, but a very pam
pered old sybarite."
"We use the only on state occasions,
for our honored guests," I explained.
"Itut I don't feel as If this were a state
occasion," she answered. "It seem quite
si though we'd been doing this all sum
mer." "I wish we bail." I said, quickly.
"I jnfaa. It leem so usual," she said.
"And yet, In reality, you hardly know
me at all: why, you haven't even met
Aunt Kllzabeth yet."
"No, that's true.'' I agreed. "Hut then,
on the other hand, you don't know sueh
a very great deal about me."
"It's the very fact that we know so
Utile about each other In the usual ways,
and so much In other ways," Mis Gra
ham attempted to exp!aln,"'that make
everytutng so .nice, we're loth so much
Interred In ' the Khlp and Hi history,

"We are," I answered. "That reminds
me that I ua to tell you all about the
Ship some time."
"Yes." Kho lookod off to where the
boat lay shlnulng like mahogany In the
jellow afterglow. "Hut don't )ou think
we'd better wait until we're on board
again. The smell of tar and the feel of
the wood wilt make It so much more
"Then, you'll come " I began, and
stopped, for Miss Graham was looking
past M4 At tho door of my house. I
turned to see Islip there, a broad smile
wreathing hl face,
"Well, well, well!" he remarked, ad
vancing. "What a charming Idyl I Ileal-
ly, I had no Idea when I enme. In at the
bar door that 1 should find such a pretty
picture awaiting me In front." He bowed
to Mix Graham. "Whew Is the horse,
Harhara. that goes with your habit ?"
"I left hint In the woods. He's ued
to standing." She turned to me, "Mr.
Selden, have you met Mr, Isllp?"
"Yesterday." t answered. "He lunched
"Yes," put In Isllp: "and h gave me
as good a lunch ns he's giving you ten.
Itenlly, Hidden, you're not living tip to
your reputation as a recline." He ptosed,
looking front MIm Graham to me, "I
hate an Interloper, but I'm afraid that's
the part assigned me. When you didn't
Appear at dinner, and couldn't be found,
I volunteered to hunt. I was gcttliw
quite worried over the disappearance.
Your Aunt Kllsabeth -"
"la III In te.l with a headaches" said
Miss Grnham.
"Quite so ; we didn't like to tell her.
I took alt the responsibility on myself."
I may have looked somewhat sharply
at Isllp at thes words, for when I turn
ed to the girl I caught an a mined gleam
In her eyes.
"Thank you, Ilodney. Aunt Klliabelh
would thank you, too. If she knew,"
The young man flushed and hit his Up.
Ml Graham had a provoking tone when
she wished. I felt sorry for him.
"Won't you sit down and have some
tear I asked.
He shook hi head. "I must I getting
back, now I hava found hr."
He was too polite to look at his watch,
but we both knew what he was thinking.
"1 left my horse In your back yard."
Miss Graham rosi. "I must go, too
Thank you, Mr, Seldon. for the sunset
and the tea. Mr. Isllp will And my horse
and go back with me." Her eyes were
dancing as she looked from one to the
other of us men, and I hardly wonder,
fyr I felt distinctly out of sorts All ot
a sudden, and I slip's face wasn't as
cheerful as usual.
Charle brought Isllp's bore down to
the beach, And we three valkrd up to the
point In the pine where Mis Graham
had left her niount. There we separated.
"Ity the. way, Selden." said Isllp. "the
market's shaky; slumping all )estenlay
and started In to-day. llettrr look out
for a sjuall." He grinneil as be disap
peared. Charles was clearing away the remains
ot the tea-party when 1 rrturutd.
"Sorry. Mr. I'ellx." said he. "I tried
to keep the gentleman away, but he
would come out. Said he wanted to see
jou on pressing business."
"That's all right. Jfhnrle. He came
to get my guest. W couldn t have tat
there drinking tra all night."
"No, of course not, lr, of course not."
I turned to do Indoor. "Hy the way.
Charles, that tea was splendid; you did
yourself proud.
Ily the time supper was finished I was
still thinking about the I'enguln Club,
which was a very singular thing, because
ordinarily I bad no use for tho place.
