"Hut what Is It that I do to permit

Do not demand It!" Mere the words
with which 1 left her nrsulnic with
that very Nympathctlc nnd hciihIIiIc doe
tor of America. He had not noticed
u confusion of sex was between I'lerro
and me, and ho had dent out the check
of my wicked undo nnd procured the
American money for me. AIno ho had
Klven me h few directions thnt ho a
poured to think of a prcnt nuttlclciiey
nnd hud ordeied a taxi to be In readi
ness for me,
"Nonsense, nurHe," he said to Nan

Cod bless you! I'd go to the station
wllh you, but I've n patient nil pre

"No. please, good doctor, and good-
by," I said, with n gioat hat-te, as I
hurriedly embraced both Nauuette and
the M.mll I'leire and departed down
the broad steps Into the taxi with tlio
"Your train may not leave for hours,
but you can get your baggage togeth
er. (loodby," mild that good doctor as
ho shut I ho door and returned to his
pursuit of making human beings either
whole or deud.
"And now, Uoberta Cnrru thorn, no
lotigor Mnrqulso of (Ires nnd B.u you
aro In your Amerlcu, hiiiI let's eo you
do Home bunding."
And whllo that very swift taxi con
eyed mo to tlio law Million (hat Is

whnt 1 iinmo "lull tlilnLlng." What
would bo the result of my womanly
arrival In that state of Harpeth of my
wicked tmMoJ Would ho bo forced to
mimler mo us his letter hud said?
And If In his anger out tlio mistake
ho hnd made from my letter, written
In that very bold nnd dltllcult hand
writing, ho Nhould turn from mo and
the good Nnnnetto and Pierre us well,
what would I then do? All must be
innetod Unit u cure for IMerre bo ob
tallied. With wilt energy I hnd been
thinking, but I did not know what It
was thut 1 should do to pre twit Ids
migor when 1 arrived to him as a
woman until suddenly the good Dr.
Hums' kindness In marking tho ro
embalnro of me to my fnther In Ida
extreme jouth made uu entry luto my
mum mm was received with tho great
ly tlio daredevil who
somo young man of fashion. The mnn
who assisted me to buy was very large,
with n hcml only ornamented with a
drjpery of gray hnlr around tho edges,
nnd he spoke much of what his son
deemed suitable (o make appearance
In the prevailing m'ode.
"He's at ten wllh n Indy Mend thli
afternoon, nnd I wish you could tinve
wuv him when he left the store to
meet her," he snld ns he laid the Inst
of tho slllc scarfs nnd hose Into one of
the largo lint bags I had purchased and
which he had pneked as I selected.
"Ho had on the mntch to these gray
tweeds and was fitted out In lavender
from the skin out. Now. what nro you
going to do nbout shoe, mlssi"
"That I do not know, kind sir." I
made nnswer, with grent perplexity.
"I think thnt the feet of my iclntlvc
are nbont the'slze nf thoe I pness."
"Most wnmen would wear shoes near
tl'e-1 Izo of their brothers' If they didn't
prefer to wnddle nnd limp along with
their feet scrouged. Go over to tho
shoe department nnd the clerk will lit
you out with what you need In about
two sizes larger than you wenr. If
they nro not light you enn tell Just
nbout what will bv. nnd exchange 'cm
by special messenger. I'll pack nil
this shlpshnpc bcfoio you come back."
With which direction 1 left tho kind
mnn nnd made my way to another of
"I have hnd upon my feet the shoes
of my brother when In nccldcnts whllo
nt hunting nnd fishing, nnd I think I
enn ascertain n good fitting." I made
n falsification to tho very polite young
mnn who stood with attention and
sympathy to wnlt upon me.
"We'll make n selection nqd then try
one pair on," ho advised me.
And ns I gnvo to him n line descrip
tion of the clothing I bad purchased
ho brought forth in nccord many won
derful boots and shoes for tho riding
nnd n walking nnd also for the dance.
1 hnd never observed that the shoes of
men wcro of such an ugliness, but
when ono wns upon my foot In ploco
of the shoe of much beauty which I
discarded both 1 and tho young mnn
hnd n lino Inugh.
"Mnls. they nro of n grcnt comfort,"
I further remarked. "And they feel
about as did thoso of my brother, who
Is of n small frame."
"Well, If they nro not right, send 'em
bnck nnd I'll chnngo 'em," ho answer
chI, with great Interest.
After the exchange of much money
between us tho young mnn went with
mo to tho other kind old man of the
wlilto hnlr, nnd together they mndc
places In tho two bags for the shoes.
"Just $700 nil told, nnd tho like of
that outfit couldn't bo bought In any
other place of stylo In New York for
lens than n thousand, miss," remarked
(o mo tho elderly clerk ns ho closed
nnd mode fast with keys the two
bags. "Shall I send 'em special'"
"I'll thank you that yon call n tnxl
for me. monsieur." I nuswercd, and
ns ho had mentioned n grout hotel In
coiiversntlon earlier that tery wicked
daredevil that resides within menwoko
nt attention with the Inrgo cars of
grcnt mischief. I felt In my pocket
that there was still much gold, and
tho mnn from whom I had purchased
the ticket to the state of Harpeth had
assured mo that tho train did not do
pait until tho hour of 0 In the evening
It then transpired that one hour from
tho time that the young Mile. (ire..
who had registered tit that lingo hotel
with all of her luggnge from tho steam
er whllo by lies her father was ropio
semen ns still engaged with tho oils
toniN, entered her room there emerged
young Mr. Itoert Cnrriilhers. who.
after paying his bill In his room, had
a hall boy hcml his bags on ahead of
him to the railroad ktntlon while lie
sauntered luto tho ten room. I have
iiout again met with the wondeiful
dresses 1 left In that hotel room. I
The lady Is nervous," snld tho con
ductor of the car n little Inter as ho
handed inc another ticket.
"I beg your pardon, conductor, but
upper nine Is ongnged for my son. who
Is to get on nt Phllndclphln. I must
have him Just opposite my daughter
and mo. Wo nro nervous," snld n
Inrgo stout old Indy who vns nccor.i-
pan led by nn even stouter dnughter.
It wns n very funny sight to behold
that ntnnl) conductor Stand with my
Inrgo bags nnd overcoat nnd look
nrouud nt that enr full of ladles for n
plnco In which to deposit mo and them
whleluwns not previously occupied by
some femnle of grcnt nervousness.
"Madam. I will have to use tho upper
of lids section." he dimity turned and
snld to the occupant of the number of
sevdi with a very line dotermluntlnn,
"Ceitniirly. conductor! Let mo re
mote my lint nnd cont." en me back tho
nnswer In n voice of very grcnt sweet
ness ns tho conductor deposited me nnd
my bugs down In front of tbo most
beautiful ludy In nil America, 1 am
"Thank yon for much graclousuess.
ma (lain. I said, keeping those gmy
tweed knees straight out In front of
mo nnd cry still to prevent trembling,
"Not nt all, sir. I bought only the
lower half of this section. I am not
nt all nervous." And I could sec her
mouth, that wns curled like the petals
of nn opening rose, tremble from n
mischief ns hlio regmded the stiff black
fill: back In the front of tho enr nnd
tho two huge femnles on our right,
whoso son nnd brother wns to.nrrlvo In
I'hilndelphlu for their protection.
An equally gny mischief roso in my
eyes nnd responded to thnt in hers ns
I responded also by word:
"For which also let us be In grati
tude." Many times In (ho months thnt fol
lowed lmvo I thought of tho luro of
tho laughing mischief In those ejes
(lint wcro Ilka beautiful blno Mower
set In crystal nnd how they were to
lead me on Into tho strnngo land of
men In search of thosn forbidden fruits.
And from that moment on 1 did very
much enjoy myself in coiiversntlon
with thnt Madam Mischief, whllo we
together did wntch (ho retirement of
nfl of tho persons In tho train. She
hnd ninny funny remarks to mukc and
mndo mo merry with them, io thnt Clio
hour of 11 o'clock hnd nrrlvcd before
wo hnd summoned tho very black male
chambermaid to turn our Rents into
beds. All others were In sleep that
was n coifuslon of sound from every
where, nnd wc must stand In tho nlslo
whllo tho beds wcro being abstracted.
