By MARTHA M. WILLIAMS
( 1921. by McClure Newspaper Syndicate.)
"So you think yourself a beauty 1"
young Mnben sniffed. "And you can't
help agreeing with me." Lorraine gig
gled, twining an unmistakably pre
meditated curl about her forefinger,'
Mnben sniffed again, saying:
"What I think doesn't mutter not
tho least. But if my name were only
Walnrlght " pausing significantly.
Lorraine smiled elflnly, clasped her
hands behind her head and murmured,
apparently to the breeze:
"It is nice to be found pleasing by
a person who knows." Then, sitting
up, head thrust forward: "Tell irie,
Dicky, docs the exalted one really
think anything about me? The frozen
truth there's a good fellow."
Young Mubeu smiled craftily. " 'Frnld
you couldn't bear It," he said, looking
past Lorraine to her reflection In the
"Ob, it won't quite turn my head,"
she laughed back at him, yet with a
deep note under it that hurt Maben
to hear. But to be madly jealous at
two-and-twenty Is to be also entirely
ruthless. "lie snys you are a type

ing here on the farm but civilization
would spoil you utterly," Maben an
"Would It, I wonder?" Lorraine nn
swered calmly, with n meditative
smile, but something at the bottom of
her eyes thut was disturbing to lier
sometime sweetheart. They hud grown
up together Into an Illusory love und
grown out of it, they thought, by help
of school nnd college. But since love's
possessive case Is nearly an lmmor-

Maben furious. All the more so that
ho himself was responsible for It
Walnrlght, a fellow ot Maben's col
lege, specializing In sociology, had
taken u fancy to tho lad from the
wheut country, had helped him In
many ways In return for all of which
Maben had nlmost bullied him Into
coming to Eurablo for tho holidays.
Tho farm name hud pleased him
mightily when ho sensed Us deriva
tion. It was tho old form of arable
aud doubtless tneaut adapted to eared
crops. Place names, you seo, all hold
glints of sociology. Thus Walnrlght
to himself. The basic truth was
wearied of sophistication, lie felt a
tonglng for life next to the ground.
Ho said openly ho "collected sum
mer girls," thereby assuring his harm
lessness. It was thus he had classi
fied Lorralno, with no thought of
Blight or slur. Maben kuew us much
know that his quotation, actually
veritable, was spiritually false. Bnt

how as though he hod forfeited all
right even to think of such n thing.
Presently he. said awkwardly: "Pin
glad you don't mind, 'Rnlnc. The old
boy meant no barm, but most girls
wouldn't understand "
"God Almighty made 'em to match
the men," Lorraine quoted with a
twinkle. "But me ! I'm the best llttlo

just you watcn me.
"I'm sure you've said things of
him," Mnben began defensively. Sho
nodded, Interrupting again. "Not a
patch on the things I shall say to him.
Beloved, listen, It will be worth while."
"Going to ask him If n dimpled
dairymaid wears her linger In hex
mouth?" Mnben bantered.
"Why didn't you let me think of
that?" Lorraine sighed. "You know
original sin gets there first always "
"Shut up! There he comes," M&-
ben ndmonlshcd over ids shoulder, as
he rushed to meet n tall, thin person
with a scholarly droop of eyes nod
shoulders, who enme up the pnth be
tween brllllrint flower borders. Lor
raine flung after after him an lnscru
table smile then vanished, not to re
appear until very Uite afternoon.
Mnben s'nred at her. She wo?
transfigured. Not u curl, hardly a
wave broke the sweep of her red
golden crown. She had banished ow
ery dimple, gentled her dancing feet
to n softer rhythm. All in white,
clinging nnd vaporous, she seemed to
float rather Umn walk across grass
already cool with dew. Lifting her
head deerlike from her low garden
seat, she smiled up at Walnrlght, a
smile of primal allurement, saying
softly: "Now Is the time for wonder
stories. You must tell mo one the
one I most care to hear."
"What Is It?" ho asked.
"You promised to tell It," anxiously.
"If I know It," he said Indulgently,
In his best elder brother voice.
Lorraine smiled again. "If not you
who docs?" she murmured. "It is
tho story of yourself tell It from tho
Walnrlght gasped. Half n minute
before he would have sworn to himself
and walked off. NOw Instead he Hung
himself on the turf, set his chin in
his palms nnd made the beginning
of tho end.
It was a profound social observer
who said: "There are no such trou
blesome ghosts at maturity as tho un
committed sins of our youth." Waln
rlght proved the saying, nis youth
had been hard nnd driving, untouched
by merry dalliances, unsweetened by
saving follies. Naturally his ghost
dancing made him a spectacle for gods
and men. But he cared nothing for
that. Men might scoff, women sneer;
nil he wanted wns to batho himself in
tho sunlight of Lorraine's eyes nnd
let her gentle feet dnnco over his
heart If thoy chose.
Mnben tried rescues many and vari
ous, partly on his own account, partly
also because of real friendliness. Bnt
none of them got him anywhere. Ho
dared not risk open expostulation
tho habit of reverence was too strong
in him. Lorraine would neither talk
nor listen to him no more than sha
would to her mother or the minister.
Now and then sho held chuckling
conferences with her fnther who nev
er since the day she was born had seen
anything wrong In her. But even
ho at length grew, not anxious, but
compassionate. "Put Mm out of mis

"When you don't want n fish throw

right caught them sho did not draw
them awny. As ho mado to lay ono
against his check sho said softly:
"Pity they are so smooth and weak
they quite spoil my type."
"Nothing can spoil your type, what
ever It may be," Walnrlght murmured,
trying to kiss a wrist. Sho drew it
gently away, saying roguishly: "Flet
