A CHRISTMAS f
DESK I
I It Contained a Secret.
I By ESTHER VANDEVEEK.
Wlien Mabel Drew was elxtocn she
was too old to rccelvo at Christmas
such gifts as toys, dolls and other in
expensive kniekknacks. The question
en mo up between her father and moth
er that year what more substantial nr
tlele should be provided for her. It
was dually decided that an escritoire,
which is the Trench name, 1 take it.
for one of those curved legged, claw
footed desks with fancy finish on
which ladies write their notes and
keep their accounts that In. when they
keep accountswould be the thing.
Mabel was my cousin and had dnr
tng my childhood been my playmate.
When we were passing Into youth,
after being away from her for u season
and returning, I found that another
had stepped into my place. Ho was
twenty-two years of age. while 1 was
but eighteen, ills entrance Into the
field suddenly made me aware of the
fact that the brotherly-sisterly condi
tion which had existed, or I had sup
posed existed, between us was sim
ply u mask for a far different condi
tion on my part. Mabel's new friend
being four or five years older than I,
patronized me, and, as for Mabel, It
seemed to me that she regarded me, as
before. In a sisterly way.
When that Christmas camo of which
I have been speaking my parents were
abroad, and I spent tho holidays at
my aunt's. Wo made a merry Christ
mas of it, and I have since remember
ed it as tho pleasantcst of my life. It
was certainly tho most important, as
. '! appear from my story.
Mabel's desk was delivered at the
back door after dark and was carried
to my own bedroom. I took off tho
crate and it stood forth as pretty a
piece of furniture as I ever saw. 1
admired it Immensely and was delight
ed at the pleasure it would give Ma
bel when alio saw It, and for that mat-
.. ml.nliU. tn .n.i n- nf I

pulled out every sandalwood drawer
wondering what secrets they would
contain. One of these drawers was fit
ted with a lock and a tiny brass key.
The drawers were Inside tho desk
and only exposed when tho front was
let down. There wns a lock for this
also.
After all except myself wero In bed
my undo and I carried the desk down
stairs and deposited It with the other
gifts to be distributed In the morning.
It wns so light that 1 could have car
ried It alone, but so frail that 1 daro
not nttetnpt to do so, fearing 1 might
strike It against something and break
it. My uncle wrote on a card. "For
Mabel. From Papa and Mamma," and
laid It on the desk whero It could be
plainly seen. But I picked it up, put
It in the drawer with the lock, turned
the key. put up the front part of the
desk and locked It too
In the morning when wo wero as
sembled for the distribution of gifts
Mabel caught sight of tho desk at once,
and her eyes danced with excitement
"Is It mine?" she asked.
"Open it and see." said her father.
She opened it, looked hi every pigeon
hole, nulled out every drawer till slio
came to the one that was locked and,
turning the key, found tho card I had
placed there. She immediately Hung
her arms around her father's neck, then
her mother's, nnd I wished sho would
do tho samo with me. Hnd sho been
n few years younger sho would have
done so. But that time had passed.
Tho next day tho desk was carried
to Mabel's room, and I did not see It
agnln for a long while.
One night a lot or us young folk
were dancing. Mabel wore a dress cut
low about tho throat, and her contin
ued bobbing throw up and down some
thing she wore on a chain suspended
around her neck. The article was so
small that I could not seo what it was
at first, but on drawing nearer recog
nized tho little key to tho drawer with
in her desk.
"Why do you wear that key on your
neck?" 1 asked.
"Oh, It's tho key to a drawer in my
desk where I keep my secrets." she re
plied, with a blush.
"Secrets'. What business lias a girl
to have secrets that must not only be
locked, but the key to which sho must
keep on her own person?"
"Everybody hns secrets. Haven't
you any of your own?"
"None that are so Important that 1
must keep them locked. What la your
secret?"
"Well, 1 like that. What right have
you to my secrets?"
It seemed to me that 1 had n right to
her secrets, but I didn't euro to as
scrt It.
"Oh, never mind." I replied. "I'll find
it out in tlano."
"Oh, you will? How are you going
to do that?"
"I'll steal that key and unlock the
drawer that contains tho secret."
Sho Involuntarily put her hand on
tho key to protect It.
"You wouldn't do any such thing,
l'ou know very well that such an act
would be dishonorable."
"I daro you to give mo permission."
There Is nlways something fascinat
ing In tnklng n risk
for awhile, then said:
Mabel thought
"Suppose I give you tho permission,
vhn t will yon give 1110 If you full?"
"Your choice between half a dozen
pairs of gloves and ten pounds ot
candy."
"How long a time do you want?"
"Till next Christmas."
"No force used?"
"None whatever."
"Very well, I'll give you till next
Christmas. But you'll lose."
"If 1 do you'll win "
"I'll choose the gloves. I
wear
sixes."
"If 1 lose It won't make any differ
nice I expect to give yon a Christ
mas present anyway."
"Oh. pshaw! I didn't think of that.
You're very cute, aren't you"
"I Hatter myself I'm a match for a
ulrl."
llei response to this t;m n "face.''
i ud the subject was dropped
ThN bargain was inade In June, and
I Mud six months In which to get tutu
Unit drawer, which was kept locked
i lie key on Mabel's person and the
dil; In Mnbel's room, where I was not
MippnTd to enter I had no Idea of
making n mures of It. I luid proposed
it only for a lark.
Having learned by the stepping In
net ween mo and Mabel of another per
nii that I wanted her for myself. I
w:i in constant dread that ho or some
othei Tellow would take her away
from me. At the same lime I shrank
from speaking to her of love I feared
to break up the brotherly and slsterl
relationship to which I had been no
customed from my earliest recollection.
True, too, Mabel didn't give nio the
slightest cncnurnpiincnt to make the
change When any man was attentive
to her and I showed that I was dis
gruntled she seemed surprised, looking
at me with the expression of one who
did not understand my dissatisfaction.
If I would say, "Mabel, why do you
permit that cad to be dancing attend
ance upon your she would reply:
"Why, I think he's very nice. Do you
know any reason why I shouldn't"
"Marry' him? Ccrtnlnly I do. He ts
not the man for you at all."
Then she would walk away apparent
ly miffed, and there would be no trou
bio between us till the next fellow
came buzzing about her.
Occasionally Mabel would say to me,
"Have you purchased my gloves yctV"
and I would reply, "No; there is plen
ty of time for that," whereupon she
would tell mo what color she preferred.
Impressing upon me the exact shades
and showing me certain articles of
dress site wished to lie matched I
was rather amused than Interested, for
' "' " ' """ "l" l'l''
f wiiM u.wv Htnt li.L-illi Iii.k mifi.ii'unl
confidence, she suffered some treplda
Ion for fear I might In some unforeseen
way succeed.
A piece of good or bad luck, as the
case mny be, gave me an advantage.
Mabel and I rode horseback together,
and one day when we wero passlug
through a wood I Jumped my horse
over a log that was rather higher than
those we had been accustomed to take.
1 cleared It. and Mabel tried to do so
too. She raised her animal too soon,
and tie camo down with his belly on
the log. "Mabel fell on tho other side,
and I picked her up.
I noticed that tho chain to which
her desk key was attached had parted
and lay on the ground beside her, but
I was too much concerned about her
to do more than pick it up. unseen by
her, and put It In my pocket
She Insisted that sho was not hurl
and mounted her horse. Fortunately
we were not far from home and had
no dllllculty In reaching It- She did
not miss her chain and key, and 1 said
nothing about them. Tho chain I re
turned tho next day, but Insisted on
keeping the key till after Christmas.
Mabel declared that It was unfair to
take advantage of an accident, but tills
did not move me.
I determined, now that 1 hnd tho
key, to effect an entrance to Mabel's
room when 110 one was there and pos
sess myself of her Becret. But 1 must
use strategy I was Invited to spend
Christmas, as the year before, at my
aunt's and on Christmas evo went to
the house provided with tho glovo for
feit and admitted to Mabel that having
no hope of winning 1 had provided
them. This threw her completely off
her guard.
The next morning 1 remained in my
room till I heard her go downstairs,
then slipped into her room, opened the
desk and applied tho key to the little
drawer.
And what did I Had there? The sur
priso of my life There was a small
card photograph of myself taken when
I wns twelve years old, a tiny china
doll I had given her one Christmas
when she was but six. 11 misspelled
letter 1 had written her and several ar
tleles of no more Intrinsic value than
these, but evidences of how dear they
were to her Replacing them. I locked
the drawer, closed the desk and went
downstairs
When It came my turn to give my
Christmas nrcsctits I handed the glove
' to Mabel and a leu nonnd box of enndv
besides. On opening the box she saw
the key to her desk drawer.
"I knew you would not succeed In
that matter," slut said, and I did not
tell her that I had succeeded. But on
Christmas night, when the others had
gone to bed. I sat with her before an
open lire, and after certain skirmish
ing I told her something else, to which
Rlie responded in a manner that was
to my heart's content 1
To this d i.v she doesn't know that I '
found her treasures.
Nevertheless tho Christinas desk Is
an object of Interest with me. My
wlfo has given It up for a rocoptaeie
of household matter, and I have suv
oral pigeonholes and drawers in which
I keep receipts and other such papers
I never sit down before tho desk to
, write a letter, draw a chock or file a
receipted bill that I do not think of
the Christmas morning when '. diseov
