i "Have you seen ill" questioned Cora .
Brown, excitedly.
"Situ bat("
Willis Lestrand lifted her soft, sen
ous eves to the girl near her.
"Tlie wedding dress." i :
"What wedding drew?" .'
"Why, the one that is being mam
for the daughter of the head of the
firm. Um Koslind Fielding.''
Willie went quietly on with the ruf
fle the was blind stitching.
"1 haven't neen it no. . We ineffi
cient workers seldom get a glimpse of
madam's masterpieces.
"That's so!" assented Cora, vigor
ously prodding little emery straw
berry with her needle. "It was only
by chance 1 saw this. But it is" she
paused fur a suitable word "well, it
is just heavenly 1" she concluded.
Very1 crowded, very suffocating, was
the li'flli floor sewing room of the
freat dry goods establishment of
leldmg & Moore in which the girls
sat and sewed.
The capital of the firm was im
mense, its reputation really national. ,
But the prices paid employes were dis
couragingly low, and tbe accommoda
tion of the workers far from sanitary,
if humane.
"1 happened to be passing the room
where they show shades by gaslight
Kitty Davis ia assistant there this
week, and she called me to come in.
Madam wasn't around, so 1 did go in.
Oh, Willie, you just ought to see itl"
wuyr inmnerenuy.
She picked np a spool of primrose
si I k and threaded her needle,
bhe was a small statu red little crea-
large, pensive and of hazel black; her
complexion of rare pearl purity; her
lip scarlet, sweet and seldom smiling.
"Because," said Cora, promptly,
"You're not liable to see anything so
fraud in your life again. I'm certain
Willie smiled.
"That is a cruel assertion, Cora."
"Well, it's true!" persisted Miss
Brown. "Why, the satin would stand
alone it is tlie new silver white, of
course and it is paneled with em
broidery of crushed pearl seed and
crewel silk daisies and oats and rib
bon grass. They say the lace on the
corsage (it is just like a seam cobweb)
is 200 years old. And," sinking her
voice ill a reverential whisper, "the
buttons are diamonds I"
Willie Lestrand nodded. She did
not stop sewing, or seem much inter
"Kitty Davis showed them to me,"
went on Cora, eagerly. "They are
worth oh, I don't know how many
dollars she said and her train is three
yards long. My I"
She paused, quite breathless and ec
static, and looked at her companion,
whose silence seemed to irritate ber,
"You don't care much to hear about
fine gowns or fashionable folks," she
A strange and wistful look was that
irhich Willie gave ber.
"What have we to do with fine
gowns or fashionable people!" she
When she left the store that even
ing, she was joined by a gentleman
. whose acquaintance she Lad made
since entering Fielding & Moore's,
two months ago.
He was assistant manager of tlie
store, and to him had the .letter of in
troduction which secured her employ
ment been addressed. He had persist
ently and devotedly followed up tlie
lie had visited ber at her boarding
house, asked her out, sent her flowers.
And just three days ago he bad told
ber that he loved ber.
"But," be bad hastily supplemented
bis confession by saying, "I can't ask
you just vol to marry me. I have a
fair position, of course, but 1 haven't
saved a cent, and 1 don't think 1 ought
to urge a girl to share poverty com
parative poverty -with me."
It was a speech plausible ana
prevaricating, but Willie's better
judgment was blunted by tbe fact
that the speaker was romantically
handsome, and evidently also roman
tically in love with her. .
But the fact she did not know was
ili&t lin wuh ttwiifuiflftiiHlv ashamed of

ously termed a heart to a mere sewing
When he was her escort he t 'ied as
far as possible to avoid meeting ac
quaintances. He was immensely 4js
' gusted with himself for his infla
tion. While enjoying her society lid
admin n her beauty, he resented Lis
own preference for her.
"It she only did not work for her
living," Harold Kent used to say to
himself, "1 might sacrilice the club
and the hays, and a few other luxuries,
and marry her. But if the truth should
ever come out - good heavens, it
woud be terriblel"
By which cogitation the measure of
"H. Ashleigh Kent," as he signed him
self, may perhaps be taken.
When she met him on this particu
lar evening, Willie looked up with a
smile. He was so tall, so handsome,
naa sucn a distinguished air and such
a beautiful mustache and beard, it
was hardly strange "he ' should win
recognition, if not affection. Or so at
least that foolish little girl thought,
"I've heard of your good fortune,"
she said, brightly. "Let me congratu
late you, Mr. Kent
They still addressed each other quite
formally. Though ho bad expressed
his affection for her. she hadn't given
him to understand she entertained any
feeliug more than friendly for him.
He looked rather annoyed she fan
cied. "What good fortuneP he ques
tioned. "Why. that you have been appoint
ed European buyer for the firm," she
answered. . , .
"Yes," the frown on his usually se
rene forehead deepening. "I've got it
at last. I sunnose I shall to abroad
commencing the duties of the place
in ti .,,.;,. !
Willie was silent. She expected he
would say, "Now, I am in a position
to marry." Or, "Now you must come
with me, dear, as my wife."
But his conversation, while infer
ring devotion, was wholly non-committal
Tlie next evening, when he emerged
from tbe employes' exit, she discov
ered that it was raining heavily, tlie
dull, chill, dreary rain of early Octo
ber. '.
She drew back. " Cora Brown who,
to put it descriptively and alliterative
ly, was freckled and friendly rushed
up to Willie. .
"Take my gossamer. Yes, you
must. I've only one block to walk
when I get off the cars you have
four. You must"
She thrust the little bag containing
the cloak into Willie protesting hand
and ran off.
Feeling very grateful the girl, re
turning to the vestibule, put on the
rain proof wrap, and then made a rush
for her car.
As ill luck would have it, the first
one bound for her street was an open
car one of several continued in ser
vice on account of a certain city con
vention which made multiplicity of
vehicles necessary, ;
Tbe short autumn twilight was fall
ing as the car jolted on. In the first
seat bdve the three reserved for
smokers, sat Willie. She felt oddly
cold, tired, discouraged. As she sat
there thinking half remorsefully over
the act which bad made ber one of
those weary women, homeward bound
from ill paid toil, she became con
scious of voices in the seat directly be
hind ber. One she recognised.
"It is a good place, Tom. It will
pay me five thousand a year."
"That's good I" answered the other,
heartily. "Glad of that, old boy I
Suppose you'll begetting married soon
, "Weil-no."
"Why not"
'You see," in a much lower tone,
"it's this way ; I've kind of got in with
"Witn Fielding?" in astonishment
"Yes. In a personal sense. I've
met him and he you know what an
erratic oid chap he is he has taken a
great shine to me. tie has actually
had me sent an invitatiou to his
daughter's marriage."
"What in thunder " questioned the
other, "has that to do with your get
ting married!"
"Oh, not hing much 1" replied Harold
Ashleigh Kent
Then, in a sudden burst of confi
dence: -
"I'll tell you, Tom l You see, Field
ing has another daughter." .
"Weiir .
"Weilj when once I securean entree
socially into their bouse, I'll try and
marry her."
"Great Scott!" ' -
Kent laughed. v
"Cheek, you think it, don't you!"
'I should say so!"
"Well, I'U bet you I'll do it, just the
"How do you know she isn't en
gaged" .-
"I don't know, but I feel pretty sure
she isn't She is a philanthropist, I've
heard, and all that sort of thing one
of those girls who put their life into
charitable work."
"You've never seen her, then I"
' But the pretty little tbing I've met
you with at the theatre, ; What about
"Oh." aaid Harold, uneasily shift
ing his position, ' 'she's nice awfully

Involuntarily Willie looked up at
tbe square lights running along at
either side overhead. Sue bad taken
in mistakea Lake street car.
"At least" we"t ou Kent, "I
haven't taken my own car for quite a
while. I generally see her home and
then walbacross, on Adams or rather
from Adams."
"Are you," queried file other, who
evidently was a familiar and nrivil-

"Very I" promptly.

"No, not that; but I take you for an

"And- with a harsh laugh you've
found out your mistake?"
"Yes," gravely, "thatlhavo, Kent"
Still more loudly the other laughed.
"Hard words break no bones." he
said. f:
"No; but if I was that little girl's

"I assuredly would.
