The girl was in shades of brown. Her
head covering was one of those lady
like hats which assume a perfect en
tirety, yet contain no element of the
grotesque. It was brown, of course.
Her gown was a serviceable brown
cheviot, which shaded off into her
bronze hair. From hat to ehoes she
was a well dressed girl, and. boirics,
she had a wholesome look about her
which was enticing. Evry mar. in the
car but one noted her hra'.tby co'.or
and well-poised s ndernrst. The f
cepTlon waa an Englishman who didn't
look as if he knew wbst a smile was.
He sat bolt upright in his seat and
looked strsight sheed in self-iatUfif d
glumneas. He rolled his eyes toward
the girl as she came opposite without
turning his head. She hsd traveled
much, but she felt his disapproval. A
wonder came into her head as to what
It eould be for, relates the Mew Tork
The only vacant seat was the one
across the aisle, half of which was oc
cupied by a sensible-looking chap,
with a good, square jaw and a pair of
honest eyes. The girl felt uncomfort
able because of the Englishman's
glance the sat down. She, too, stared
straight ahead for half an hour or ui.
Then she looked around for some
amusement. The man who satin the
other half of the seat saw her glance
at the window.
"VTould you like this end of the
seat?" he said, and rose to his feet.
The Englishman turned a withering
slow fire glance upon heras shs replied
"Thank you. It is dull."
The ice was broken. The young man
gave her a magaxine and asked her
what she thought of Abbey's Holy
Grail pictures. She was an enthusiast.
He was interesting. They chatted like
two children as the train sped onward
into the dusk.
At first she forgot all about the Eng
lishman; then she caught e cornerwise
glance of him and decided his disap
proval was mountainous. A spirit of
perverse mischief entered her soul.
She confided to the man in the seat the
fact that she was uncomfortable, and
then flirted audaciously for the benefit
of her bugbear. Now and then she
looked at him only to feel that some
how she was a very extraordinary, a
very bra ten girl. Down in her heart
she knew It wasn't a bit the truth; she
was Just a Jolly United States girl, but
the Englishman was simply freezing
all her naturalness up.
The other man in ths meantime had
made himself as agreeable aa a man
eould, magazines, papers, lunch, every
thing which could help to lighten the
tedium of the journey he had supplied.
At last he reached his station. The
girl had three hours more to travel.
"By George. I forgot to get any
fruit." he said, as he buttoned up his
overcoat. "The afternoon has fairly
flown. I hope you'll arrive at your sta
tion safely and find your friends wait
ing." If a was gone. The girl felt lonesome.
One more glance he took at the Eng
lishman. What she saw in the way of
disapproval piled up, heaped up, sent
a numbness over her soul. She drew
herself up very straight and assumed a
frigidity of manner which hid the dis
comfort she was enduring internally.
Suddenly she was startled by a voice,
a deep bass voice which wasn't un
plrasant but dreadfully stern.
"Madam," it aaid. She turned her
head a little. "O rlear," she thought.
"He's going to preach. He must be
some kind of a missionary. If he saja
anythng rude I'm going to fight."
"Madam," repeated the voice.
The girl turned toward him. Ha held
a paper bag In his hand, and spoke
"Wou'.d you like sn orange?"
The only comfort the other chaphad
forgotten the Englishman had remem
bered. Her breath escaped in a little
surprised gasp ss she mechanically ac
cepted the orange.
