Roe Haldanes to his country home. Qorm

il she bad consulted her inclinations,
she would have run away; but that
could not be.
"Yes," said Gormly vaguely, scarce
ly noting her low voiced statement.
"Now that It la all over and. now that
I have lost you, if Indeed it Is proper
to say I bad lost what I had never
possessed and never could have pos
sessed, you will understand that it
was this Incident to which I alluded
when you said you respected me be
cause I had been a perfectly straight,
square man. Your words cut me to
the heart; not because I wasn't
straight or square now or that I had
not made what amends I could for the
actions of a boy and a fool since I had
become a man, but because after this
I could never persuade you or any
one that I had not always been so,
and because I could not bear to have
even your respect on a false pretense.
I wanted to tell you many times, and
you know of course that if things had
shaped themselves differently and you
could have cared for me, I should
have told you tho whole story beforo
I allowed you to say you would be
come my wife."
"I am sure that you would have
done so, Mr. Gormly," said the girl.
"And that you have come here to
give me that assurance, to show me
that you have not lost confidence In

our affairs, my antagonism to your

pany and then this. That I take It
was your purpose in comlug?"
"Yes." faltered the girl, "that,
"What more?" asked the man.
"Whatever it Is. if It is in my power
to give It, It Is yours. What Is It
that you want?"
The woman opened her mouth to
speak. She moistened her lips. Words
apparently wero difficult, perhaps Im
possible. "What is it that you want, Miss
Haldano?" asked Gormly again.
"I want you I" she said in her low,
clear voice.
Gormly lifted bis band and stared
at her.
"You want me I" he faltered.
"What do you mean?"
"I moan to be your wife," was tho
direct answer.
"My wife!"
"Yes. That Is, If you still want
Gormly Btared at her In amazement.
"Do I understand aright?" said the
man, shutting his teeth together.
"After all that Is In the paper this
morning, do you mean to aay that you
will marry me?"
"I do mean Just that," waa tbe an
swer. "But," said tbe man, "you said you
did not love me, and"
"Must I do all the wooing?" cried
tbe girl passionately.
"You offered yourself to as one
before," went on Oormly relentlessly.
"And you refused me. Will you do
so again?"
"Why do you come to me now?"
"Can't you think of the reason?"
"I don't want to think; I want to
"I love you then," said tbe girl
resolutely. "You are the bravest
noblest, most splendid man on earth.
If you will take me, I will be tbe hap
piest, proudest, thankfullest woman
that the sun shines on."
"Take you I" repeated Gormly. "But
I can't understand"
"Will you understand this?" asked
the girl.
She walked slowly toward him. She
laid her hand on his shoulder. She
lifted her face to his. Ills arm went
around her waist. What she bad be
gun, he finished. He swept her to
him. She gave herself up yieldingly
to his embrace. When his lips sought
hers, there was no avoidance. Her
arm slipped round his neck and tight
ened there. And then at last he un
derstood. After awhllo she drew
awny from him.
"You don't ask me what I have
done?" she said.
"I nelthor know nor care since you
are here and you aro mine."
"Perhaps I should not have been
here," she returned, "If we bad not
been already engaged and the engage
ment already announced." '
"I am very stupid this morning."
said Gormly in some bewilderment
"You certainly are," was the an
swer. "For a man who aspires to be
mayor of Now York, you are quite the
stupidest and dearest person imagin
able." "I have wit enough at least to know
whero I can get correct information
upon all points."
"And where Is that?"
"Hero I" said Gormly, pressing with
his own the loveliest lips in tho world,
which smiled at him and were not re
fused bis touch. "What hnve you
dono and how has our engagement,
which, so far as I know, was not en
tered Into until a moment since, been
"Head that!" she cried, releasing
herself from bis grasp and handing
bim the neglected copy of Tho Planet.
She turned to the editorial page
and pointed to a postscript to the lead
er of the morning, which was a dis
cussion highly eulogistic of Gormly's
action and character. The postscript
waa In tho form of a belated com
munication which had been received
at the office of The Planet at the last
moment, and had beerj forced Into tho
paper because it furnished the final
and completing touch to the other
revelations it contained. It had been
printed in heavy black capitals, double
spaced. Coming closer to her, so that
he held her with one arm, Gormly
took, tho, paper with the other and
"The engagement of Mr. George
Gormly to Miss Eleanor Haldane Is
authoritatively announced. The fu
ture mayor of New York is to be con
gratulated upon having won for his
promised wife the young woman, who
not only from her beauty of mind and
person, but because of her lively and
practical Interest In the poor, the op
pressed and suffering, Ib easily first
among the daughters of our great city.
The Planet feels that this announce
ment supplies the completing touch'to
the other ndmlrable qualifications
which Mr. Gormly possesses for the
great office to which he has aspired
and to which the people mean to see
him elected tomorrow."
"Who did It?" asked Gormly.
"I did."
"But why?"
"First of all, because J found out
that I loved you."
"Why did you do it last night?"
"Because I believed that such an
announcement this morning, with its
Implication of trust, and honor, and
affection, would do more to establish
you in the public confidence than al
most anything that could be Im
agined." "You have mado my election cer
tain. But whether you have or not, I
could almost believe that winning you
I don't care."
Why Girls Excel in Study
Early Development of Their Percep

Weaker Physical State.
The superiority of female students,
both children and adults, baa been
mentioned and explained hundreds at
times, and yet the full pedagogic sig
nificance of the fact still seems to be

educational college furnish an over

dents, and yet in later years tbe men

fact that in her weaker physical state

sexes are ao great that It Is unscien

"Mr. Gormly," he said, "I see you
have heard the news."
"I have heard tho essential part of
It from your slater."
"Do you mean to tell me that yon

sit down and read It, or I'll withdraw
my influence and vote against you. I
vupposo all Eleanor told you was the
news of her engagement?"
"Well, wasn't that enough?"
"Enough!" cried the young man.
"Why, you want to read tho interview
with Col. Bill Hamilton. It's tho fin
est thing that ever appeared. Every
body knows that you didn't shoot tbe
man, but that the woman did. They
know, too, that you gave her your
horse in the snow and that she aban
doned you. Why, man, you're a hero!"
"To be perfectly frank with you,
Haldane, this is all most Interesting
and gratifying. How on earth Bill
Hamilton turned up at tho right mo

but as a matter of fact, I do truly

I get more satisfaction out of the fact

"You are sure to win," said Hal

the girl to her lover.
