A Slang Expression Leads to a
By CLARISSA MACKIC
(Copyright. WW. by Amwli-ui lYeaa Asso

with a ptualed frown, and this second
perusal was lift enlightening:

should he say "Goodby," and where

Ail these questions Amy asked of

and his fountain of wisdom was r
pctoally supplied from the varum
forms of literature that found their
source in the discarded books and
magar.lncs that he Oslied from the li
brary waste paper basket.
Amy looked up now with her pleas
ant smile. "Going anywhere near the
station today, Bert?"
"Nope." returned the seeker after
knowledge. '"1 may go tomorrow,
though. WhyT" He dropped on his
knees beside the table and groped in
the waste pnper basket.
"I'm expecting a bos or a crate or
something. 1 don't Just know what."
"AVbat's in ltr demanded Bert, with
a brother's privilege.
"Lemons. returned Amy.
"Lemons 7" repeated Bert. ,rWtmf

he asked, reverting to common slang.
"I don't know what you mean," re

"I think it Is very thoughtful in Ted

"Don't you see any other meaning In
that message. Amy? Why. he's giving
you the shake don't you see?"
"Bert Winfleld. what do you mean?
1 shall tell father what you have said!"
cried Amy indignantly.
"Tell him." retorted Bert gloomily.
"What did you mean about the lem
ons, Bert?" Insisted his sister uneasily.
"I must explain about what 'handing
the lemod' means." returned Bert di
dactically. "It's a quiet way of telling
a feller you have no use for him. You
see. Teddy says he's sending lemons
by express that means he's shaking
you at once, right away In a hurry
and don't he say goodby? You're
Slowly Amy gathered the conviction
that her little brother was right. Her
doubting heart told her that Ted must
be tired of her. Tbey had quarreled a
little the last time he had called, aud
she had not heard from him since. lie
was tired of her. and this cool, con
temptuous way of dismissing their
beautiful romance turned all her ten
der love to bitterness.
The next day Bert returned from the
express office with, the cheerful an
nouncement that there were no lemons
awaiting his sister.
'Several days a week passed, and
no lemons arrived for Amy Winfleld.

Then it was that Amy went around

"Sure! I've called him Fldo and

tone roused Bert to Indignation.
"I won't call him Teddy after any

The dog cliniled playfully over his

brown eye. "I'll call him Iup for

Teddy was square In some things.
Amy grudgingly agreed, and so she
put the treasures away with a llttlo
