By F. A. MITCH EL
Sho was born n flirt. When she was
a llttlu girl she preferred tho company
of boys rnthor than girls; not that she
was a tomboy, for she was very foml
nine. When sho was thirteen she cat)
tured a boy of ten and gave him n
genuine case of love. At fifteen she
enthralled a man of thirty. At eight
eon her adorers were numberless. At
twenty her mother Insisted that sho
should stop flirting nnd marry.
She promised to think about It, but
beforo she had finished her thinking
she was twenty-four, and by that tlnu
a woman Is hnrd to please. At twen
ty-slx she was not only harder to
please, but hud fewer eligible men to
choose from. Then she woke up one
morning to find lforsclf an old maid.
She did not like the prospect before
her. She declined to accept It. Slu
set her jaws and resolved that she
would marry for n homo and children.
She did not agree with tho poet that
"knowledge comes, but wisdom lin
gers." She believed sho could select
n partner who would fulfill all the
conditions of a deslrnblo husband. As
for romance, bah! Had she not been
very nearly in love with Chnrllo Ash
urst, who bad afterward gone to the
bad? Sho had been engaged to Tom
Chester, who was now a fat, baldhead
cd pig. Her mother had Interposed be
tween her and Jimmio Ludlow, who
bnd married and had been divorced for
cruelty, well established. This was
or had been romance. No more of It
for her. Sho wanted a man who would
go to business In the morning, return
In the evening and not bother her for
those little attentions husbands usual
ly desire. She would lavish her affec
tion on the children.
She met a mnn a few years her sen
lor who seemed to fill tho bill. On
meeting hur he seemed Interested In
her. He did very little talking, but
was a first jato listener. So far as
sho could discover there wns not n
spark of I'omanco In him. Sho defer
milled to marry him If she could.
Ueabzlng that tho coquettish ways of
a girl in her teens would not avail her
now. sho tried to make herself accept
able to him as a companion. Sho
...II.,.. I ...... I.. ...... .!.-. rtt

admitted that she had made a mistake
in not marrying when younger and
would like to rectify the error before
It was too late. Any time was time
enough for a home, but would soon be
too late for children. She also Inti
mated (hat the man she wanted was
one who would make her eomfortnblc.
Loe after marriage, she bad heard
married persons say, was, after all,
but an Intensified companionship.
He neither assented nor dissented
from this. He looked at her curiously
while she was saying It, and sho won
dered what bo was thinking about
Perhaps it was his reticence nnd her
own curiosity that gave her an Inter
est in him, the strength of which she
did not realize. Sho noticed that,
though he said very little, what ho did
say Inspired confidence. After an even
ing spent In his company she felt her
inferiority. He paid her few compli
ments, but when ho did praise her
she felt that he meant It nnd she de
Notwithstanding that they were much
together nnd she had admitted that
she wished to marry, he did not pro
pose. Either he was obtuse or he
preferred to remain a bachelor. Nev
ertheless his visits Increased In fre
quency, and at last he was with her
every other evening. Finally ho said
"Your philosophy has converted me.
A marriage based on common sense
Is worth a dozen with no other foun
dation than infatuation. That's what
it is, infatuation. I.Ike you, I wish to
marry for n home and children."
"It's coming at last," she said to
"At my time of life 1 look for the
woman who Is most likely to make my
home comfortable. I have been con
sidering two women not that I have
any assurance that I can get either
yourself and another. I think the oth
er will make me the more comfortable,
though sho Is not as attractive as yon."
This was too much for her philoso
phy. Sho looked at him, trying to And
voice to make a reply, but feared to
betray herself by a quivering lip.
"I would like you to meet my liaucee,"
ho continued. "Sho Is not intellectual,
but practical. One thing about her
that has gone far to decide mo In her
favor Is that sho is an excellent cook."
At last sho found voice to speak.
"Your words are positively brutal!"
lie burst Into n laugh, at the same
time taking her Into his aims.
"Am I more brutal," he said, "than
)he girl who drovo Fred Jones to at
"Yes. I am that Fred Jones whom
you lured to a proposal eleven years
ago and who left you to Jump Into a
river, from which ho was unwillingly
rescued. Ho recovered from a desire

Love and a Cathedral Altar.
The high altar of tho Freiburg ca
thedral, with its matchless carvings,
tells n story not only of lovo, but of
love's triumph through tho sharp wit
of tho lover. Tho simple woodenrver,
Hans l.cfrlnk, who had been the early
protego of Maximilian I., 200 years
beforo Alsaco was captured by tho
French, luid dared to lovo tho daugh
ter of a rich man, and sho was foolish
enough to lovo him in return. The in
dignant parent, when tho youth had
received tho commission to enrvo tho
high nltar, nnd on the strength ot this
honor asked for the hand of his love,
received tho haughty response, "When
you carve an altar as much higher than
the church In which It stands, as my
daughter Is higher than you, you may
lead her to that altar in marriage." It
was an Impossible condition, but noth
ing Is Impossible to love. When tho
altar had been Installed It was ob
served that the topmost point of It wns
bent forward, extending In a curve,
nnd was actually about fifteen Inches
higher than the church. It merely
stooped a little In order to conquer.

Copyright, 1915, by McClwro News
Tho Swamp farm, ns It was called
wns situated four tulles out of Dayton
and was owned by tho Widow Bliss.
Tho tin peddler, the sewing machine
agent, the book canvasser, tho patent
right man and many otliors who enmo
that way saw, ml ml red and wero ready
to love the owner of the Swamp farm,
She admitted to herself that It might:
be better If she had a good husband,
but she had a "nay" for all these men
except one. He was a Mr. William
Iturton. Ho wns a man Just about her
age and ranked as an old bachelor.
Mr. Hurton didn't begin as most of tho
others had. He had tho senso to ad
mit o the widow without telling tier
that he admired.
Mr. Burton could talk of soils, crops,
swamps, tho weather and a hundred
other things and never let a hint fnll
that he intended some day to talk of
lovo and matrimony. The widow
mentally pitied him for this, and yet
sho felt a bit piqued.
Mr. Hurton was a surveyor, and his
duties called him Into the neighbor
hood of tho Swamp farm about ouco u
week. Ho could probably hnvo mndo
it once In two weeks nnd;perhnp3 onco
In four, but It's nono ot our business.
Along about Wednesday In every week
tho widow would look out of tho front
door nnd see Mr. Burton surveylug or
pretending to. Ho would look up by
accident and sco her standing thero
nnd would be invited In to drink a
glass- of fresh buttermilk.
This thing had gono on for a long,
long time when he callcd-ono day, not
to survey her garden, but to sit In tho
house and talk.
"Widow. I have been coming hero n
long time," he began.
"And It has tired you out?" sho
Innghed In reply.
"Not u bit. I camo today to ask you
to bo my wife."
"Mr. Burton." replied tho widow, "I
mndo up my mind about this marrlago
question quite a long tlmo ago. I shall
marry tho man who can tell mo how
to mnko money out of my old swnmp.
When I am sure that ho has told mo
right ho may bring In tho prencher."
"That old swamp has been a bleak
spot for fifty years." ho said after a
time. "By tho way, you don't own all
the swamp, do you 7"
"No. There's twenty-eight acres of
It that belong to Mr. Cooper, but ho
can't do anything more with his part
than 1 can with mine."
Mr. Hurton walked down to tho edgo
of the swamp and back again, and
then he sat down nnd took his head
In his hands and thought and thought,
By and by he looked up with a bright
smile on his face and said:
"Mrs. Bliss, I have got It. I have
solved the problem. You nro to turn
that swamp Into a frog farm!"
"Gracious me. but whoever heard of
such a thlng7" sho exclaimed.
"Lots of folks have heard of It
There are half a dozen men In this
stato who are raising frogs for tho
market nnd mnklug n henp of money
out of It."
"Hut I never heard of any ono selling
frogs," persisted the widow. "Would
any ono In Dayton eat a frog, much
less buy one?
"Not In Dayton," ho laughed, "but in
Now York. They aro on -the bills of
faro at most hotels and restaurants
and nro considered a great dellcncy.
They eat only the hind legs."
It was a week later that men nnd
boys called at the Swamp farm with
palls and baskets and paper bags.
When the widow had bought COO big
and little frogs and paid out so much
money that she had to let her tuxes
slip by she went down to the swamp
ono morning to have a look at her
Not a frog wns In sight this morning,
not n big ono or n little one. Thnt
swamp was absolutely without life.
Tho widow ran back to tho house
and arrived there Just a mlnuto beforo
Mr. Burton nppeared.
"I I was going to send for you!"
"What lias happened?" ho nsked.
"Kvory frog has dlsnppcaredl"
"You don't say!"
"Como along nnd see for yourself."
IIo walked along down to tho swamp
with her, and she heard him chuckling
as ho walked. Instead of looking over
tho swamp to see if ho could solvo tho
problem ho sat down on a log nnd bo
gan to laugh.
"Whnt do you mean, Mr. Burton?"
wns almost demanded.
"I was to tell you how to mnko
money out of this old swnmp."
"Yes, you said you could, but It
serins you havo only shown mo how
to lose money Instead."
"You aro wrong, widow you nro
wrong," said Mr. Burton. "You see,
thero wcro twenty-eight acres which
you didn't own. I bought them. When
you had 000 frogs on your sldo of tho
swnmp I threw a lot of frog food In on
my side. Last night your 000 camo
over the lino. They nre now mv prop
erty." Tho widow looked nt him with min
gled amazement and Indignation.
"Oh, don't look that wny." ho laugh
ed. "I am now going to tell you how
j on may mnko tho money."
"now how" sho stammered.
"Why, mnrry tho man who owns tho
COO frogs I" ho replied.
And after about a month sho did.
Sho not only mndo money out of tho
frog farm, but she got n good husband
besides, and that Is something that
money cannot buy.
