MT NAME Is Imogen Dlller,
and I am twenty-five years
old. The reader will, per
haps, understand mure readi
ly from tills statement the confession
I am about to muke. lleltig a womun,
I am naturally a believer In dreams.
I think I never knew a woman who
waa entirely free from this mild form
of superstition. And being compara
tively young as Ufa Is estimated
nowadays 1 am romantic.
I was twenty-two when my heart
first began to hunger for sympathy,
for appreciation, for affection. How
natural, how Inevitable, Is this period
In a girl's life history I It Is a con
dition aa normal as the unfolding of
a bud. And equally natural, I think,
are her little Innocent Instinctive
girlish device for rendering herself
beautiful In dress and manner, her
love for going Into company there to
meet the rank and llle of those from
whom must be recruited her possible
prince. She shines In looks, In
thoughts. In words, In actions, with
the glow of that hsrdly acknowledged
desire within her breast the desire
for the true, manly love which ahe
feels that she can so opulently repsy.
If the world only knew! It laughs
at girls who are dying for unattained
love. It would weep could It see Into
their heart. Ho terrible la It to feet
youth slipping away, and with It that
hope for which, by the decree, of God,
moet women live.
It waa one day, soon after Ihed
passed my twenty-third birthday, that
a 'terrible thought came to me, the
thought that I should be over the hill
of youth In a little while, and going
down the other side; that the hope I
had allently cherished, whlrh I had
never as yet conaldered Impossible,
might soon be a leHsenlng one. I
cannot tell what flood of depression
overwhelmed me. All that day. and
far Into the night, my soul cried out
to God for the precious gift without
which my life would mean nothing.
Among my dreams that night, when
at last I slept, there wss one that
visited me twice, and seemed to be.
In vsgue way, -so anawer to my
pasabitiate prayer. I ssw myself
standing on a bare hillside, whose
sloie waa black with ehsdow. In the
mldat of the gloom I ralaed my bands,
something white csme Hosting down
etit of the vloutls. It looked like a
wreath of snowy flowers; but as ft
drifted alowly down, and aettled In
my outstretched hands, I ssw that It
was a necklace of little white bells.
I put the bells about my neck, and
Instantly a glorious burst of sunlight
Illumined the hill, and I awoke. Twice,
I aay, this dream came to me, once
In the middle of the night, and once
Just before waking In the morning.
Aa I opened my eyes In the real sun
light, the dream seemed so actual and
so vivid, that I clutched my bosom,
thinking to catch the bells before they
Aa I conaldered the vision, I said
to niyneir, "There la a .hint In this
dream worth heeding. Hitherto I have
neglected personal adornment, think
ing that l.ove must Indeed be blind.
If he cannot see beyond the, surface
glitter of that which Is foreign even
to the physical person. Hut It may
be that Love Is not blind, only wan
dering of sight. tWtea, perhaps, some
thing crude, glittering, conaplcuous,
eaten his eye, and draw It whither
It msy discover the better thing that
Ilea behind 1 I will see!"
Every girl knows perfectly well the
kind and amount of her own personal
attraction. 1 know what people
called me what I wns: "Not exactly
pretty, bat stately, Impreaalve ; a ma
tronly girl, of the Dutch madonna
type." Such a type Is not generally
winsome. It Is too quiet. Men will
jostle a madonna who stands between
them and coryphee. Yet, If the
madonna could only fascinate and at
tract them at first sight, as the cory
phee does, how much more they
would admire and love her I It la all
question of Initial fascination.
With some such Idea eddying
through my mind, I went to a famous
firm of manufacturing Jewelers, and
gave them novel commission to
make me a necklace of Ivory bells.
I bade them spare no expense; to
make the ornament the moat exquisite
thing that art could devise; no ma-'
terlal to be used but the finest, most
transparent Ivory; the bells to be
perfect and complete In every detail,
even to the tiny, vibrant tongues j
and all united by a chain of polished
Ivory links. "Even If the dream prove
In no sense prophetic," I thought, "it
has given me the Idea of an absolute
ly unique ornament. I shall not be
nnotlced when I wear It."
Two thousand dollars was the cost
f my necklace. I am not wealthy,
but I am by no means poor, I could
pay the money, and I did.
Immediately a new experience came
Into my life. I became a renter of
admiration! Hitherto, with other
quiet, Inconspicuous girls, I had been
comparatively unnoticed In company.
But from the first occalnn when I
appeared wearing my necklace of
Ivory bells, I waa ringed about with
admirers. And the most Intoxicating
part of It wns thnt I realty could not
determine whether the Ivory bolls
were tho sole attraction, or whether
they hnd called out and emphasised
some actual personal charm that mad
hit admirable, f do not remember
that word was ever suld to me In
society about. the ornament; society
Is too conventionally polite for that.
Hut I wondered, especially when the
men thronged about tne, whether they
were looking at the exquisite work
manship of the bells, or at the girl
who wore them.
It was during this brief season of
social triumph that a revela
tion csme to me, which accounted,
In large part, for uiy disquie
tude of a year past. The prince
had cornel Indeed, he had been near
me for a long time, and I had not
known that 1 loved him.
He was a silent man, a poet some
called htm a dreamer. He went Into
society, not for pleasure's sake, but
that he might study human nature'
for the same reason that he went Id o
the lumber camps of the North, nd
the alums of the great cities.
The first time he came to me, at
the dull tinkle of the Ivory belli), I
felt an almost overpowering desire
to stretch, out my strong young arms
and sweep from before me all the
simpering circle on whose outskirts
he stood. Then, for an Instant and
the only time I ran remember, until
the at range thing happened he
looked Into my eyes, and I became
as a child before him. Afterwards, as
often as he rame near me, such a
rapturous thrill ran through alt my
being that I could scarcely keep from
Yet be alone, of all the hovering
circle, seemed most Interested, not
In me, but In the Ivory bells. I con
tinually caught him atudying tbem;
and the thought maddened me, that
he, whose love meant all the world
to me, admired only the ornament
upon my neck.
One summer evening there waa a
grand ball given at an out-of-town
villa. Ho and I were there, with a
great company of the gayest of the
clty'a gay. As naual, I wore my Ivory
bells, and, as naual, those who ad
mired them, or me I could not tell
which gathered around me. As the
stifling night wore on, and dance fol
lowed dunce, I grew faint and weary,
and felt as If I must have a breath
of heaven's pore air. As I niove.d to
ward the wide-open French windows,
from which one could atep upon the
veranda, the oet crossed my path.
He stopped and I saw that his eyes
were fixed upon the Ivory bells. Much
aa I loved him, 1 could almost have
smitten him then I He spoke:
"Are yon going out for a breath of
fresh air. Mademoiselle Dlller? Bo
waa L May I have the honor of ac
The honor I My soul surged within
me. I was about to return some
stereotyped refusal, when the thought
came to me: "la not this the hour of
futet Yes I I will prove to myself,
this night, that It Is the Ivory bells
alone he carea for."
So I put my hand upon his arm,
and together we went out Into the
night. Oh, that beautiful, soft night f
Could a thouaand years blot out Its
memory I The stnrs twinkling so
purely in the blue-black sky; the rest
ful sighing of the trees; the patter of
a fountain near by ; the music floating
out across the shrubbery.
"Iet ns go down by the lake," my
companion said; "there we may rest
and enjoy the coolness."
Down the terraces we went, arm In
arm. There waa a trembling between
us. I could not tell whether my hand
wavered upon hla arm, or hla arm
shook under my band. Hut when we
reached the little artificial lake, I
aank upon a bench, and he, atandlng a
little aalde, stood before me. Some
gaudy lanterns, not far away, cast
faint glow over os.-
The alienee grew oppressive. I felt
hla eyes upon the Ivory bells. Sudden
ly my spirit rose to the level of Us

little, and snatched the glistening
circlet from my neck. The next In
staut It waa flashing In the crystal
water of the lake, sinking so slowly
that It seemed to hang suspended In
the tide, like the golden goblet that
the poet saw from the bridge at mid
Then 1 looked at my poet, and all
of life trembled upon that Instaut
Oh, gracious heaven I Hla eyes were
fixed, not upon the sinking bauble,
but upon my face. Love had passed
the crucial teat.
At thut supreme moment something
like rushing darkness come over me,
something with roaring wings, as of
a great bird. I fuluted from the awful
stress; but even aa I aank, I felt my
lover's arms encircle me.
I have confessed. For me the world
la made new, and all things In It
My poet smiles, as I rend him what
I have written about the Ivory bells.
He declares that he never saw them In
hla life until they flushed from my
hand, that night, Into the lake. If he
seemed to look uion tbem, he swears
It wns because he dared not lift his
eyes to the soul that burned In mine.

been of love.

Something About Combs.
There Isn't very much information
obtainable regarding combs, except
that their origin Is traced to great
antiquity. Combs mado of wood, bone
and horn have been found In Swiss
lake dwellings. Among the Greeks
and Romans the combs were made of
boxwood, In Egypt of Ivory. Mod
ern combs are made of these, and
alao of tortoise shell. Probably the
use of the comb for the hair came
after they were employed for card

being aupplied at the time. For the
defense It was stated that each of
the men was supplied with a pie, and
it was contended that this constituted
a meal. The stipendiary decided In
