I My motor car never for a moment

horse, but that was lcfore I had met
ICIhIo Hyler at my hostess country
I hud always believed that 1 should
rerogulr.o my mate as soon as I sow
her or at least when I heard her apeak.
Miss Ilyler's pure, Madoutm-llko face
held my eyes, her voice aet my heart
strings atune, and In tho etonlnir, when
I waltzed with her, I know her for aiy
Tory own. I nlmoM told her so. Aft
erward I was glad I had not.
It waa a mouth long houso party, so

ten a haunting fear, llcr voice, face

fect trinity to compel any man's ad
miration, and nt time k!ic hnd the
whole crowd literally at her feet; then,
presto, tho Intangible something which
made her a woman apart from her sis
I exorcised Kt. Alb every day. usual
ly preferring to drive him bitched to
my easy going phuctou. I never went
out that I didn't try to get Miss Hyler
to accompany me, but alio never .ac
cepted. The seventh time her excuse
was too tlimsy to twar Investigation,
aud she ran from the room.
I was puzzled. She wasn't cold to
mo except In connection with my horse.
As I htiHKl frowning Mrs. Atherton pat
tod my shoulder In her motherly way.
"Better not waste time on what can't
Iki helped," she counseled. Another
day I overheard Mrs. Jerome nod Miss
Cecilia laughing about tho "poor little
(umpie," as they called EIslo.
Iioubtless If I hud asked a direct
question I should have found out soon
er, but I couldn't bring myself to dis
cuss her, and they, supposing 1 under
stood, talked In metaphors and left me
One golden morulug I left her hullily
aud went after St. Albe, Miss Cecllla'a
mocking laughter trulllng after mo. I
drove away milea away. Comlug
back, I wus still potidcrlug on tho sit
uation. What bud Jerome meaut with
bis epigrammatic "better chuck It,
Deu?" As one Joins mosaic work, I
put together Mrs. Atberton's advice.
Miss Cecilia's laughter, Jerome's words
and various bints from the others, but
when I bud my pieces fitted I failed to
read the design.
As Bt. Albe turned eastward I saw
the girl of my thoughts sitting by the
roadsKlo. Her wblte fuce, bor lltUe
shoo lu her lap, her swollen foot, told
the tnle of a sprained ankle. I jumped
"Let me lift you In," I said. "I won't
hurt the poor foot."
"Oh, no!" she exclaimed, her bhio
eyes black with some strong feeling,
"I shall bo ablo to walk pretty soon.
Please go nwuy."
"I ahull do nothing of the kind," 1
replied, promptly growing angry. "I'm
sorry to bo so distasteful, but 1 guess
you can endure mo till I get you home
or you can drive the horse yourself,"
. That ride waa a memorable one. If
Bt. Albe stnrtod Into a gentlo trot El
sie abrlckod with fright. If I slowed
him down Elsie knew be was going to
kick. Tho toot of an auto born lu the
far distance nearly threw ber Into
spasms, though Bt. Albe knew an auto
woblle better than he knew bis mother.
I tried, to reason with her, but sbo
bade mo keep my ulud on my driving.
At last she put ber elbows on ber
knees and ber face Into ber bands, the
while she shook as with an ague chill.
"I can't belp It!" the moaned. "I waa
born with It, aa some are born with
crooked feet. I can't help It. I eau'tt"
With her lu this undignified position
and myself grim, silent, but furious, I
drove up to tho bouse Into u perfect
.. mil of laughter, from which I t
.'oped aa aooti as pox lo.
I understood my mosaic now, and 1
began weighing my di-alro for lier
ngaluat toy pleasure lu Rt. Albo. The
latter It was evident she could never
shuro with ino, I n voided her for aov
ernl days, while my anger cooled and
my love Increased. Then one morning
as I drove out ou tho pi cm nut country
road I overtook her, Kho was walking
very slowly, aide,) by a enno.
As alio turned her startled eyo on
my gl'Msy horse a blind rage suddenly
HiMsoHsod her. In less time than It
t'ikes to tell It I wus out of tho buggy,
had IClsle In my arms, Into tho buggy
ami isle wcro off! '
Iter face went whlto, ntid the fear In
her blue eyes waa mixed with uinnitl
gnti'd M-orii nml anger.
"You nro a brute!" slio aald trom
"I know It," I agreed.
"I can't reason about It! I enn't
help It! Oh, please put mo out!"
Tho piteous voice appealed to whn!
little manhood I hud l-ft. I stopped
the horse and Jiimpiil out. Aa I held
up my anna a paper careened across
the road. Kt. Albe, mtoi for hla quiet
nerves, snorted and ran. Elsie screamed
and shouted "Whoa!" I'.ut he ran the
faster, while I scurried nfter lu tho
cloud of dust, my heart fairly burstini'
with fear and remorse.
It seemed to mo that I ran for houra
Tho road had many turns, ao they were
Immediately lost to sight. At every
corner I exported to come upon the
tragedy. At last I fell breathless by
tho roadside, and whllu I wulted. sick
at heart, I heard tho toot of the tally
"Thank Ood!" I cried, for I know It
was the other guests who had early In
the morning gone for a tallyho rldo.
"Thank Ooil!" I cried, and. staggering
up, I rap il I7.7.I ly on.
As tho road swerved sharply to the
west a most surprising sight met my
eyes. St. Albe was trotting swiftly to
ward me swiftly, but under perfect
control nnd Elsie was bis driver. Be
hind them came tho tallyho crowd
shouting Itself hoarse.
Elslo drew proudly up beside me.
The tallytm folks spilled out, nil talk
Ing at once.
"Oh, you brave creature!"
"How did you dare?"
"Shan't I help you out?"
"Why. you don't look a bit scared!"
"Why. I am not scared, nnd I am c
happy I think I shall die!" Elslo ox
claimed when she could get a hearing.
"It's wonderful! Tho minute I felt
the reins li: my hands that horrlblf
fear left me. I slowed him down,
turned him around, and now I am
going to drive him home. Oh. I'm sc
Every one at least every man In the
house, barring Jerome entertained me
that evening. They seemed to tak
turns nt It. At Inst I wrenched myself
away and went Into tho garden where
I had last seen her. Sho was not there,
nor could I find her In tho moonlit or
chard. At last 1 gave her up and
started for the stables. St. Albe wa
In the paddock, and I caught the Out
tor of white liesldo him.
Crying nnd laughing and murmur
ing, there was my darling with hot
arms around St. Alias's umippreclativ
"Just think of It. St. Albe." she waf
saying. "I've had my first propownl to
night nnd five liosides. It's owing to
you, you lHnnty."
"And this Is tho seventh," I observed,
taking tho yhlte arms nnd putting my
own nock where St. AHks's had been.
"If you accepted any of the six, you
muy ns well tell him you have chang

will. Elsie beloved!"
"Why, .Dennis, of course you will!"
sho answered, putting up her rod lips

Function of (he llouae of LorCa.
The nntlquntod constitution of the
houso of lords and Its comparative
neglect of Its duties Irritate modern
reformer! both theoretical and practi
cal and have led them often to call for
Its overthrow. But at the bottom of
this charge of obsoleteness nnd Ineffi

were so If the lords chose to be ns

or even In 1807 and 1S32 the demo

would have had bard work to complete
the change which It has carried so far
and longs to carry farther. Whnt the
lords win do now was shown by Glad
stone's home rule bill. Ills Immense
personal Influence and the fear of an
Irish revolt, added to no small amount
of serious conviction, forced the bill

time. The caso was put on both aides

lofty, high bred eloquence that has nev
