When Mr. Deulinm left his ollleo
and wont out Into tho street, every
thing had an unusual appearaiico to
him. Ho walked along, unheeding
tho direction. li looked e.t tho tluo
residences and realized that ho might
have a line residence if ho wanted it.
Ho miw handsonio carriages; he, too,
might set ti) ano'iuipage. Tho satis
faction thoso thoughts produced was
brief. Of what uso would a lino houso
or an elegant carriage bo toliim? Ho
know no one to invito to tho houso or
to rltlo with hint in tho carriage. Ho
began to realize how utterly alono in
tho world ho wap. Ho had no friends,
no acquaintances oven. Tho running
dog with its naiso to tho ground, sees
nothing of the surrounding seonory.
Ho know men In a business way, of
course, and doubtlri-b each of them
had a homo in the suburbs somewhere,
but ho could not take a business man
by tho shoulders and say to him, "In
vito mo to your house; Iain lonesome;
I want, to know people." Suddenly,
a girl roso before his mental vision
a modern girl. Sho was tho only wo
man in tho world with whom hu was
on speaking terms, and ho know
bur merely because her light
and nimble llngors played tho bu.-l-
noas sonata of ono note on his ollico
typewriter. Mts (!alo was pretty,
of noiu-fu-all typewriter girb aro
und it was generally undorMond in
tho ollleo that, sho belonged to a good
family who had coino down in tho
world. Her somewhat independent
air deonened this conviction and
kopt the olorks at a distance. Sho
was a Honiiblo girl who realized that
tho typowritor paid bettor that tho
piano ami accordingly turned tho ex
perience of her white lingers on tho
foriuor Instrument. Klehard Denham
sat down upon a park bench. "Why
not?" ho nskort himself. There was
no reason against It oxcopt that hit
had not tho courage. Novortholos.H,
lie formed a desperate resolution.
No.xt day, )ulims went on as
usual, l.ottoru wero nnswered and
tho tlmo arrived wlu-n Miss fJalo

commands that day. Donham hesi
tated. He felt vaguely that a busi
ness oflieo was not tho proper plaoo
for a proposal; yet ho know he would

In tho fjrst place ho had no plausible
excuse, for calling upon tho young
woman at home, ami, In the second
place, ho know if ho once got there
ho would bo stricken dumb. It must
either bo at his ollleo or nowhere.
Sit down a moment, Miss (Jalo,11 ho

"I I don't think I would jmt It
quite that way," said Denham, with
somo hesitation. "It rends as if I
were offering everything, and that my

A moment later sho read.

"Anything ol.so, Mr. Denham?"
"No, I think that covers the whole

might ntlil something to show that I
shall bo exceedingly disappointed If

"No fear," said Miss (Jalo. "I'll
add that though. 'Yours truly,' or
Yours very truly?' "
"You might end it 'Your Friend.' "
Next morning Miss (ialo came Into
Mr. Denham's ollico with a smile on
"You made a funny mistake last
night, Mr. Denham." she bald, as sho
took oil" her wraps.
"Did I?" ho asked in alarm.
"Yes. You sent that letter to my
address. I got It this morning. I
opened It, for I thought it was for mo
and that perhaps you did not need
mo to-ilu. I saw at onco that you
put It la tho wrong envelope. Did
you want mo to-day?"
It wa-i on his tongue to say "I want
you every day," but ho merely held
out his hand for tholettor, and looked
nt It as If ho could not account for its
having gone astray.
Tlio next day Miss (ialo camo into
and hbo looked frightened. It was
evident that Denham was losing his
mind. She -put tho letter down beforo
him nu paid:
"You addressed that to mo tho t-ec-ond
time, M". Denham."
I Iioro was a look or haggard anx
iety about Mr. Donham that gavo
color to her suspicions. Ho felt that
it was now or never.
"Then why don't you unswer it,
Miss (inle," ho snld .grullly.
Sho backed away from him.
Answer it?" sho repealed fuintly.
"(u-talnly. If I got a lottor twice,
I would answer It."
"What do you mean?"' sho cried,
with her bund on tho door knob.
"Kxnctly what tho lottor says. I
want you for my partner. I want to

"Oh!" cried Miss (lalo, in a long
drawn, quivering sigh. Sho was
doubtless shocked at tho word Im had
used, and lied to hor type-writing

ltichard Donham pacod up and
down tho Moor for a few moments and
then rapped lightly at her door, but
thoro was no i-ospouso. Ho put on
his hat and went out into tho street.
After a long and aimless walk, lie
found himself again at his place ol

"Yes, and sho hns given notice

Whistling merrily to give a show of
unconcern, Henri left his home, going
swiftly toward the more densly jiopu

It Is safe to say the grizzled noldler
had never seen the equal of this audaci

mustache fiercely, and wns about to
order him back Into the lines, when the
peculiar gravity of the situation struc'.:

"Your word of honor, eh? Well, I

With a Joyful exclamation Henri
bounded away, and a few mlnaitei lat'r

few wordn he told bis father of his peril,
