up titne was o good as the present,
queried; "Why not now?"
"Xo, not now." returned the deter

of his helmet and the lightest ami most

moonlight with a stride as martial as
if he were leading an onslaught against
A middle-aged lover is the most in

This inward tumult was something
quite foreign to OMieer Ktes ordiuan
placiditx. but at last the hour for din
ner came and lie hurried to the home
of Widow Trussei.
Site was waiting for him in the par
lor, dressed in a morning gown of tan
colored brocade, and site wore some
geranium leaves in her hair. She
looked very large to her guest a he

"Xannie? 0, es. Xannie's out." her
mother returned inditfercntly.
"I'm glad of that." said the officer,
thinking he would manage the difficult
task better in her absence.
"Are you?" laughed the widow, self
consciously. When she laugited lie
could not help noticing what remarka

"I may as well come to my business at

"Xot at all!" broke in the widow,
protesting with both plump. wStite
hands, one of which by some inad
vertence lingered iiuoii the blue sleeve
of the policeman's uniform.
"Yes. 1 am." said lie. with the air of
a man who wished to be particular
about small tilings, "anil I've lived
alone all these ears." The widow

"Which has been a matter of sur
prise to many." he continued. "Put
the fact is I've never met a woman I

lifte.i a pair of humid black eye full to

""Xo?" she sighed interrogatively.
"Xo." repeated the oilicer. "but
lately 1 found it very dull spending my
off hours 'round the station or up at
that lonesome boarding-house. I
haven't even a dog to look after. There
isn't a person in the world who cares
whether I come home safe at night or
ret killed in a row on the docks."
"Icars actually came into the listener's j
eves at this.
""O.Mr. Kyte!" she protested "it's
most unkind of you to say so when you
know how anrow Iwe feci about
you. Many a night I've started up out
of niy .-leep thinking I saw one of
thoHj dreadful bailors coming at you
with a knife!" Uoth of the plump
hands were on the sleeve of the uni
form now. Even the unsopbi-tieated
settle of officT Kyte could not help see
ing something curious in this last re
mark. Did the widow think he nu-anl
lo make love to her? He was achhal
rous soul, and would no more have
fostered such a mistake than he would
have perjured him-elf. lc-ide-. he
had a great jt9jci for Xannie's
mother, as such. He c.st about him
for means to extricate him.-elf from the
difficulty, but the widow, stjli with
tears in her eyes and a quaver in her
voice, went on:
"I'm sure I know how to feel for
you. I-'ver since dear James died I've
been o lonesome that, but for Xannie
and your '.isit-, I mu-t have lost my
sense: and now that Xannie i.s going
to leave r:i "
"O!" cried Officer Kyte, relieved,
thinking that after all she might not
have mi-under-tood him. "that needn't
be, I'm sure; no one would think of
separating you." Put the widow was
uneonsoled She drew in her breath
with a sob. "He rn.iy take her away
any day, and then what hill I do?"
"You don't mean that -he's engaged
to that voting fool with the spotted
necktie!'r ejaculated the desperate
suitor, with unma-euline intuition.
Mr.-. Tnis.se! threw herself back in the
"'I here, now," she cried, "I told
Xannie you wouldn't approve of it."
"You" told her that?" he roared.
Then a sciisc of his own helplessness
cam- over Slim and he -aid quietly, with
grim humor: "Well I don't."
"it's a great pity," sighed the widow,
"that when we re -o happy otherwise
we should have such a trouble as this."
The visitor rose.
"Well," he said, between his teeth,
under the circumstances I don't see
as there is anything left for me to do."
He was going, but Nannie' mother
clasped Iii tn about the arm and held
"Don't be angry with the poor
child!" she cried. "She's always been
an obedient daughter to me, and I
hope she will be if you." The un
fortunate olficer po-iticly staggered
as lie fell the full force of this blow.
"I'.ut, Mr-. Trtissel " lie was be
ginning when the impulsive widow
threw lier.self forward and leaned
against him. sobbing.
"I don't know how to thank
you for bcing-so kind." she managed
to say between gasps. " You'll never
repent it no. never. You wouldn't
mind kissing me, would you, Oeorge?"
There was no use in OMieer K;ti let
ting his arms dangle by his side. Xan
nie. the golden-headed, tender-hearted
little goddess of his dreams was lost to
him forever. The future seemed to
him as bleak as a December day and
well, the willow's eyes were black and
her lips were rosy, so he kissed her.
Then he rushed from the house.
He was obliged to hurry back to his
beat. He walked with his eyes on the
ground, unconscious of everything but
the incoherent agitation of his mind
He could have struck a brother officer
who stopped him with a pleasan
"There's a mightv pretty girl a-how-
iif to you," said his friend, "and I
couldn't be mean enough to let you
lose it." Officer Kyte looked back.
"Why. it's Xannie Trussei!" he ex
claimed, with an einbarnissed blush.
" She looks smilm' enough," his
friend continued. "I suppose it's be
cause she's thrown over Dick Smith.
They say a woman's never so happy as
when .she's breaking somebody' t
heart." Kyte started as if shot.
"What! That little dude with the
spotted necktie?" he cried, trembling.

a humorous tone, but ofiiecr Xo. 1,-JM

"Xannie," blurted out the big fellow.
"I went up to wmr house to ask wu to
marry me. but somehow I proposed to
oiir ma instead. I don't know how it
happened, but really it wasn't my fault,
and if I can get out o! the scrape won't
you have me?"
He looked like a blubbering, over
grown sfhool-boy. Little Miss Xannie
peeped up at htm under the drooping
rim of her hat. "Well. I declare." she
said, and she stopped right there on
the paement and laughed till the
cherries that she carried in the paper
bag in her hand burst through the bot
tom and j istled each other out upon
the pavt tuent like a crowd of boys es
caping from school. Officer Kyte was
glad of the excuse to hide his face by
picking them up. and he had excuse
enough, for the harder she laughed, the
faster they dropped. Then compunc
tion seized on iter tender soul and she
set to work with him. bidding up her
starched skirts daintily from the diist.
Hut the mirtltfulncss sci'ed her again.
"O what a lark!" .she cried. "What
will we do?"
"Do you mean about the cherries, or
your mother?" asked the piqued police
man, lie felt utterly contemptible and
was sure she must think him so. but the
fact is site felt nothing of the sort.
"0." she said sniffing the air, "I'll
manage ma if you manage the cher
ries." They got the cherries up finally
and Kyte said:
" I've got to go back to duty. Miss
Xannie. If you must laugh at'an old
fool like me. wait till you get home. I
see there's no Itope for me." Having
tortured him to her heart's content, the
merry maiden was ready to make rep
aration. Well, she said, T wouldn't com
mit suicide if I were vou. I I "
she looked, down and blushed as red as
think ma can he
talked out of it." A smile broke
through his clouded face, like the
sun through the fog.
" 1 o you mean it?" he asked eagerly,
hardly able to believe his ears. Xaii
nie could see that his hands, before
whose blows the sturdiest "dock-walloper"
retired in fear, were trembling
"If you hadn't been such a stupid
old thing." she pouted, kicking the
curb-tone with her boot, "you'd have
known it months ami months: ago."
I know I'm much too old for you."
he apologized. " Over twice your age.
"O. well." she said, still pretending
tc pout, "if you don't want me "

whole personality of Olliccr Kyte. from
his helmet to hisboots, made her break
into another peal of laughter and run
