Johnny Walsh was n very modest
llttlo boy, so modest that wlicn tno

tance down tho street was occupied by
n new family, including n golden hair
ed, blue eyed girl, with pink cheeks
and vermilion lips, Johnny's breath
was quite taken away by her childish

cious something for tho girt opposite
that ho would reveal to no one, least of

It that, when he saw her coming on
the street, ho would either look down
at his toes or up at tho sky, but never
The approach of St. Valentino's day
wns n grcnt relief to Johnny. He could
send his llttlo lovo n valentine ex
pressing his feelings for her without
her knowing that lie did so. Tho only
obstacle In the way wns that ho did
not know her nnmo nnd did not dare
ask nny ono who might know for fear
of betraying his secret. He was on
Intimnto terms with tho grocer's deliv
ery boy, whom he had noticed deliver
ed supplies to both his nnd her home,
and nsked him for the nnmo of tho
family in which his sweetheart bo
longed. Through Jim ho learned the
girl's name wns Julia Reynolds.
Johuny now had it nil his own way,
The next thing for him to do was to

looking tho door, proceeded to nddress
It to Miss Julia Reynolds of 357 Har
rison street, spelling Harrison II-n-r-1
A terrible thing happened whllo
Johnny wns taking the Valentino to tho
letter box. Just ns ho was about to
drop the missive In the box -who should
come nlong but the very girl to whom
it was addressed! John blushed scar
let and instead of putting the valentine
in the box put It In hla pocket nnd
walked nwny, looking up at the sky.
It wns not till the evening, when dark
ness covered his romance, that Johnny
mailed his valentine In n box n mile
from his honje.

John received there wni one from the
girl ho loved best he did not know.
Soon after St. Valentine's day, lucelin?
Julia coining from Fchool, he mustered
courage to glance at her und thought
ho snw a suspicion of a. smile on her
pretty Hps. But he dared not keep
Ills eyes on tier long enough to make
sure. This was the Inst time he saw
her ns n child, for soon after the meet
ing he snw n doctor's vehicle before
tho Reynolds door nnd later heard that
his little lovo wns 111.
John's anxiety overcamo his bash-
fulness. Ho gathered his loose change,
nmountlng to CO cents, nnd bought a
posy. Then ho persunded n small boy
lie picked up near tho Reynolds house
to take it to tho door, ring tho bell
and hand it In, saying tlint it wns for
Julia. John stood behind n tree box
till tho feat was accomplished, then
walked away, proud of what ho had
A dozen years passed. John Walsh's
remembrance of his little lovo wis a
very pleasant one, nnd often ho laugh
ed nt his terror lest cither tho girl or
nny ono else should discover his secret
devotion. Being now n man ho took
no interest in St. Valentino's day, but
whenever It camo rouud, though he
hnd forgotten tho missive he had scut
Julia Reynolds, a pleasant sensation
seemed to hnunt him. As to Julia, he
did not know whether sho wns still llv-
Ing. Her Imngo remained with him,
but as If seen In n mirror that had be
como clouded. Though his childish lovo
was a thing of tho pnst, neither it nor
Its object wns forgotten.
When John wns twenty-two years
old ho met at nn evening function a
young lady, witli whom ho wns from
tho first en rapport. They fell to com
paring notes nnd learned tlint they had
onco lived In the snmo city nnd In the
John hnd been Introduced to the
young lady a Miss Reynolds, nnd it
occurred to lihn tlint this might be his
child love. He asked her if her name
was Julia, and when she said yes ho
was suro that she was tho girl to
whom he had sent tho vnlentlno and
the posy when she was 111. Ho had
overcome his boyish bnshfulncss nnd
wns happy to avow that ho had wor
shiped her from a distance nnd had
sent her n valentine nnd (lowers. Miss
Reynolds listened to this with evident
pleasure, but gnvc no sign of reraem
boring any such boy ns John Wnlsh.
John, whoso nssuranco was now equal
to his former modesty, sworo that ho
had never forgotten his boyish lovo
.nd Intimated that ho would gladly
pursuo It as a man. Whether tho
young lady attributed this to gallantry
or not sho did not say.
Certain It Is that there followed a
courtship between the two. In Its Inst
stngi'H John prided himself on his con
Rtuncy and feigned to regret that his
former devotion had not been appro
elated. Miss Reynolds mndo no reply
to these protestations till ho had pro
posed nnd hnd been ncccptcd. Then sho
produced n vnlentlno nnd n flower,
both yellow with age, nnd In tho for
mer there came back to John a dim ro-
membrnnco of tho mlsslvo tlint had

that the flower was ono of thoso ho
