Ings in order to help Bob when the j
tl&e came for the little home, As Car
rie realized that nil her dreams were
slinttered she burst Into tears.
Bv the time the lunch hour was over
sho had dried her eyes nnd was busily
working nt her desk when the assis
tant mnnager made his nppearance.
Bob stnrted as he caught sight of the
hew head of the department.
"I bee your pardon. I did not know
that you had been promoted to this
desk," he said In a .reserved tone.
Carrie did not look up.
"Will you please prepote a report,
giving details of tho girls In your de
partment, as1 to length of service nnd
salaries they are now receiving, i
would also like monthly reports on the
sales mnde by ench saleswoman, In
future Miss Aldeson."
The "Miss Aldeson" was too much
"I will make tho first report, Mr.
Cnmnbcll." sho said Icily, "but you
must speak to my successor about the
monthly report for I am to glvo my
notlco tomorrow night."
"You nro to bo married, I presume,
Miss Aldeson." Bob felt his heart sink
"How daro you Insult me," unrrie
Hashed. "Is It not enough to Blight
mo as you have, because you have
been promoted and consider yourself
above your old friends, without taunt
lng me. No; I am not going to be
married because I have been silly
enough to waste my affections upon n
man that was not worthy of them. I
am leaving because I refuse to work
tinder an assistant manager who is
not a gentlemnn."
Bob's cheeks were scarlet "How
coula you expect mo to net different
ly," ho said, "when I heard you con
fessing your love for another man over
tho telephone this morning?"
"How daro you" Carrie began, but
stopped with a gasp ot understand
ing. "Oh, Bob, how Billy of you I" Bho
cried na sho rummaged through her
desk for her order book. "Hero It is ;
1 was clvlng nn order for some popu
lar 6ongs for tho music counter. That
Is what you heard 1"
"I was an Idiot." ho laughed, "I
havo been unhappy nil morning over

the news would bring to you. We can ,
