One day a few weeks after the Irst anni

John faced tho world with a eollczo gradu
ato's all-conquering egotism, and Maria
lived In him.
As long as tho flvo hundred dollars
Maria's father had given her lasted, John
went radiantly every day to his neivly

in tne room waa tho ticking of the two dol

"An idea, eh J" John repeated, wiping the
moisture out of his blonde mustache and
standing over tbe register.
"Yes, it came to me all in a twinkling."
Something in tho tidy line?"

John gave her a little memorandum book

in double-entry, which sho could not in the
least understand, and so for that evening
the subject was dismissed.
At tbe end of the month John found him
self in'lncreasing perplexity which his wife
did not comprehend.
"It's dreadful times in business, Maria,"
he said gloomily.
"John," she said with trembling voice,
"You're not going to fail, are you I"
Joha hid a grim smile with a sadden
twirl of his mustache.
"Better men than I are going to tho wall

pitatingly, "don't keep aay thing from ate.

"Not much," another fierce twirl of the
mustache being aeoeaaary to cover hie

Interspersed throughout this was car fare

became silent; he could not see her face.
Ho made a rapid summary of tbe items,
no more embarrassed by sevens and nines,
Maria observed than she would have been
by fives and oughts. Nor did she once de
tect him in adding by means of his fingers,
which gave her an increased opinion of his

"O, John, why do you so delight to tease
me!" cried Maria, with a nervous little
laugh, "it can't be half that"
John mado another agile computation
nloud to verify the first; Mrs. Skipping
grew fairy dizzy at the buzz of the addition.
She had seated herself from sheer weak
ness, and John could'nt help a feeling of
pity as he saw how pale she was.
"I was so certain I hadn't spent any thing,
John, she gasped.
"O, never mind," he said, cheerily,

of the list
A silence followed this generous reading,
varied only by small sniffs from Maria's
crying, which had now reached the chronic
stage whero tears cease and little gasps at
regular Intervals aro tho only external
At length John spoke.
There seemod such an awful solemnity in
his voice that Maria's suspiration immedi
ately became normal.

young journalist's experience with Mr.

Sho wont pladly to thu chair he indicated,
docile always when ho chose to bo serious.
"You see. Maria, a fellow hkos to lo

to the world, nor to his wife, sinco both con
cede him to lie young, strong gifted, edu
cated, prosiwrou, that ho failed miserably
in his bo.isted profession, and thut he now
nets only ?I.r per week. It sounds anoma
lous. It reflects on his capacity. It lowers
his standard. It's far plcasanter to bo
thought iocI:uting big fees, and to be looked
uiwn as tho possible cuidinsr spirit in some
stupendous public scheme, isn't it"
"I suppose so."
"A fellow in college has plenty of time to
inflate himself. It's only after experience
has punctured the wind ba? that it is pos
sible to know its true size or carryirg
capacity. Since I graduated the world has
heard no voice from me except that of
escaping gas. You and tho friends in
Clover-camp thought it tho music of the
spheres. In Chicaco they call me a 'blow
hard.' It's vulgar, but it's pretty near the
truth, I guess."
"Why. Maria. I thought I was a rreat
man: I didn't deceive you any more than I
did myself. I thought the whole world was
waiting for me. and that I could pick up
riches with one flexile condescension of ray
spine. I had only to stoop so. eaily. and I
had a pocket ftilL Hut the world wasn't
waiting I had to scramble hard for my f 15

"Why didn't you tell me, Johnr"
"I was my own dope, and In say egregious
vanity I dragged along with me you, my
little winsome country sweetheart You
believed I was a great man a man of .
affairs, didn't you. Mari.il"
"I believe yet you will be, John. I am
sure you will."
"I ought to bo to justify your faith, but I
never shalL I am Just an ordinary, common-place
fellow, well and hearty, and
deuccdly yes, deucedly poor."
"But John don't you practice law."
"Maria, I never had a client I do odd
jobs whenever I can. to eke out my scant
wages. I'm in debt and Just manage to
keep soul and body together."
It took many minutes for Maria to adjust
herself to this confession.
Why didn't you tell mel" was all that
she could say.
"I hare often thought If we had a little
home ever so little, it would be more like
"O. John, that's what I say. over so little,
