A NOVEL PROPOSAL.
A Yountf Lady Has Ono Furniahod
When I f i r.-t declared to Mi-s Laura

feelings toward her thiiL young lady

Am I wrong in wishing that it should
be an experience worth remembering
that it should not be commonplace?
Do you suppose I didn't know ;i ,-oon

that you intended to make a jumping

I rose to my feet.
'That's enough. Miss Marvin," .-aid
I. "The mere fact that you can treat
the subject so lightly show.- that you
do not care a -nap of your finger for

So saying I .-trode from the room,

hhe -.aid, to fall into the arm- of the

Distrcs-ing thought! What if one of
my precursors .-hoiild even now be
springing hi imention upon her! The
mental picture of Miss Marvin falling
into the arms of either Will Harden or
Hank Ilurton w:is excrutiating. while
the thought of Lester Herbert, who
lisped and wore bangs. was fairly mad
dening. I was sei.ed with an in.-aue
longing to return and wavlav au one
of the trio who might be prowling
around with his original method con
cealed about his person.
Although it was a verv ridiculous
thiuir to do, I immediately turned about
and fdowly walked back.
There was lijrlit in Laura t room
which glared at me indignantlv for a
moment and then shrank to a tiny
speck of nam", as though it had re
treated behind a door and were watch

"(), it' you, i.s it?" said he. in a low

No wonder my facial contortions had
been ineffectual. This incident at once
restored my equanimity anil brought
with it a Hidden ilu-li of .something
like jocularity. For a moment I felt
that 1 could enjoy the .situation and
even take advantage of it.
