THE FALLS CITY TRIBUNE , FRIDAY , HARCH 29 , 1907
'I Marooned In London.
BY FWANK GUI-TON ,
"I'm sorry , miss , " ? aid the
politely , "but there is not
' -even a berth left. "
"Perhaps I mijjlit get in the
second cabin , " suggested Madge ,
\vth ] a sudden accession of hope.
The agent smiled.
"There are more persons going
back second cabin than there arc
who want firsts.1 lie explained.
"You see , lots of those who come
over first cabin only have enough
. for the second cabin on the way
home. Some of them discount
their return ticket lor the little
extra money they can get that
way. Of course some one might
decide not to go at the last mo
ment , but there arc 137 applica
tions in ahead of yours , and there
i _ would have to be 138 passengers
t. ms- not going before I could fix you
up on that boat. "
"But the next ? " she persisted.
"Just as Lad , if not worse. I
am afraid that I shall not be able
to book you before the end of next
With a sigh , Madge turned
away from the counter. She had
lingered on in lOurope after the
rest of her original party had re
turned. She had joined the
"Worthiitgtons after that , but now
they were starting for the Nile
trip , and it was important that
she should get home- There had
been no hope of obtaining pas
sage on the French and Hamburg
liners , and she had run over to
London supposing that t lie re
would be a better opportunity.
But everywhere the same story
was told. The * rush of west
bound traffic was unexpectedly
heavy and there would be no
chance for a stateroom for weeks
to come. Aunt Clara was fret
ting at the delay , iier father had
written her that he was not well
and he wished her to return at
once , and yet they would probably
be forced to remain in London for
Jive or six weeks. Madge always
thought better when she walked ,
so she dismissed her cab a n d
started to walk back to the Cecil.
The busy London streets quick
ened her thoughts , but these only
served to show how unpleasant
was her situation. It was a very
blue face that crossed Tom Man
ning's line of vision.
"Miss Howard ! " he cried , start
ing forward. "This is indeed a
surprise. I had supposed that
you returned long ago. "
"Returned " dis
, she laughed
mally. "Why , we are marooned
here. We cannot get a berth for
love or money. "
"If misery loves company you
have lots of it , " he laughed.
"Let's go and have some lunch.
That may cheer you up a little.
I'll telephone Mrs. Twomey. "
Madge nodded gratefully.
She had always liked Tom Man
ning , and they turned toward the
Carleton. She waited while he
went off to telephone her aunt.

Almost as though in answer t <
her question Roper entered th
dining room and came towar
them. His alert bearing was i
marked contrast to Manning' '
rather boyish pose , and yet some
how she did not feel so glad t
see him as she had been to grec
lie took a seat at their tabl
in response to Manning's iavit ;
tion and listened gravely to he
recital of her troubles.
"I regret that I cannot be <
assistance , " he said when she ha
concluded. "I made every ei
deavor yesterday to arrange
a similar matter for the relative
of some business friends , and tl
case is hopeless. Even t h
freighters are booked far ahead. "
"Then you are marooned , too. "
she laughed gleefully.
"I never permit such a situa
tion"he said complacently. "My
interests are too large to admit
of a delay. My room was booked
before I came over. I am going
day after tomorrow. "
"I guess we exiles shall have
to charter a steamer , " laughed
Manning. "If you arc doneMiss
Howard , shall we go ? "
She left the table with relief.
Somehow Roper's attitude of
complacent satisfaction was pos
itively hateful , She had always
liked him before. Down in her
heart of hearts she had vacillated
between the two men ever since
her coming out ball. Her pref
erence had been for Roper until
now , but at present Tom's mer
curial temperament suited her
mood better , and she was glad
that she had met him first.
"Since Frank has refused the
request , may I take it up ? " he
asked as they parted at the hotel.
"I may be able to sandbag some
unwary tourist and take his state
room from him. "
"If you only could ! " she cried
impulsively. "Father isjyn poor
health , and I am so in.xious to
get to him. "
' 'Can you sail at ? ' he
"I'd like to go this minute , "
"Consider it done > " he said ,
with mock dramatics. "I will
work the sandbag persuasion this
very day. "
Madge went upstairs oddly
comforted b y the assurance ,
though her sense told her that
Manning could not succeed where
Roper with his inlluence had
It was with misgiving that she
opened the note lie sent her that
evening , but a delighted cry es
caped her when a ticket fell out.
She let it flutter to the floor
when she read the letter. It ran :
Dear Miss Ho ward I am called
out of town and am mailing
these to you. You can fix it up
when I see you in New York.
Hope you will have a plcar.ant
passage. With regards to your
aunt and yourself ,
Roper called that evening to
explain that he had heard of a
berth that she might obtain four
weeks later and seemed much rc-
lieyed to find that she had been
"I should have offered you my
room , " he said , "had it not been
that it was imperative that I
should be in town next week.
We shall be fellow passengers" .
Madge could not arouse great
enthusiasm over this fact. A
few weeks before she would have
been glad. But since the lun
cheon she had changed. It was
unreasonable to expect him to
give up his stateroom , yet the
complacent way in which he hat )
dismissed that possibility had
