It was a local; therefore I strolled
Into the last car. There was no ono
there, except, of course, the girl. The
instant I saw her, I swung along with
that shoulder stride that usually does
the business. Then I started.
"Great Scott!" I ventured, taking off
my hat; "I didn't know It was you,
or I wouldn’t have ... It didn't
look like you. It looked like somebody
pleasing, and gentle, and kind, and—”
Sylvia—-for it was she eyed me
coldly. "I came In here," she contin
ued, stiffly, "to avoM a railroad collis
ion. Here I am Involved In a social
one.” She reflected for an Instant.
"I didn’t know you, either,” Hho went
on; "your head was turned so that I
couldp’t see your face, and under
those circumstances you seemed so
sort of—handsome. 1 thought,” sho
added, "that you wore Maj. Walcott.
“Maj. Walcott!” I snorted, for It
must ho understood that at one time

I stopped. I was plainly, visibly ein
barrassod. This was fiendish, this
showing off another man under my

Just last Wednosday evening,” she
continued, "hut—no. We didn’t talk
nhout that Wednesday night. Wednes
day night we talked about something
else. It was Tuesday night that

politely, and without curiosity, "how

"Well," she answered, "he never
comes Friday nights."
"What night was it that 1 used to
stay away?" I queried.
She interrupted me with a quick
"I know a girl on Ninety-sixth," I re
pealed. You see, 1 \.as whizzing hack
on the other track.
“So do T," she returned, "on the
"The one I know lives on the west
side," I responded.
“The one I know,” she continued,
"is Grace Van Auten.”
"Will wonders never cease?" 1 mur
mured; "that’s the very girl I know;
her house is the very place where I
am wont to call and spend a pleasant,
very pleasant, hour—or two.”
“I didn't know,” she returned, "that
you over called there." 1 saw that
now the track was clear.
"I've called there lots of times," I
answered, "since last July." After that
we were quits—almost. Neither said
a word for a long, long while.
Finally the guard put his head In
the door. "Ono Hundred and Thirty
seventh street,” he ejaculated.
It appeared that she wanted to
alight just at that place, and I—well,
1 alighted too.
e asccuuea iu me sireei aoove.
“I’ll see you home,” I told her; “it
shall never he suid of me that 1 ever
shirked n duty—never.”
It was just six when she reached
home. ”1 can't go In," 1 suggested, to
forestall the possibility of a cordial
invitation. But she didn't bother to
ask; she saw, doubtless, that I had
”1 must go home myself," I said,
still gently refusing that invitation
which she had not extended; "I am
due at Grace Van Auten's at eight
o’clock. 1 must be on time. I was a
trifle late last night—”
“Bast night!" returned she. "Do you
go there every night?”
I shook my head with a determined
air. “I never go on Thursdays," I re
It was n day or two later that I
stepped into another rear car upon the
There sat Sylvia. “You seem to be
long in this rear car,” she ventured.
I took my place beside her. “Now,”
I assured her, "I am just where I be
long.” She did not respond.
I determined that the conversation
this time should be strictly general
and therefore intellectual.
“The third rail,” I began, scientific
ally, “is tho thing that the world de
mands—the thing that the world must
have. Two rails alone will never an
swer; the third rail is the spice of
life. It makes things go—it Insures
results. You take those two rails and
they run side by side, and yet they
never accomplish anything; they nre
lifeless, dead—woefully monontonous.
Along comes the third rail and—wake^
them up. Gives ’em something to
think about for instance. The third
rail principle may lit applied to every
thing In life Now. Grace Van An
“MaJ. Walcott," she returned, meet
ing me half way,
"We were talking of the third rail,"
I interrupted; "now, Grace—”
"Major—she reiterated. But I
shook my head.
"The third rail," I insisted, “Grace
“Well,” retorted Sylvia, in the kind
of a murmur which is just unintelligi
ble enough to be just intelligible, "she's
just about as thin as one, anyway. If
that's what you mean."
That settled it. M.v attempt to force
the conversation Into the broad chan
nel of generalities was futile. I gave
it up. I looked out of thp window. We
were at the Ninety-sixth station. I
"Oh," she exclaimed, “do you get
out here?” She knew as well as I
that it was Grace Van Auten’s sta
I hastily sat down again. “Mere
force of habit," I returned, blandly.
The train pulled out. I was still
within it, still sitting In the seat that
was next to Sylvia. Suddenly Sylvia
uttered an exclamation of alarm.
I looked. Upon the platform there
stood two people. They were together.
They were engrossed In conversation.
One of thpse was Grace Van Auten;
the other MaJ. Walcott.
Within our car there was a silence
too eloquent for words. Sylvia was
still gazing out of tho window.
“Allow me," I suggested, dolefully,
"to offer my sympathy to one Who has

forced a ldt, 1 thought. ‘‘I was think
ing," she answered, "of you—”
"Ah,” I gasped, with an attempt at
a rapturous sigh, "of—me!"
"And of—your plight,” she went on,
Again we relapsed Into silence. The
guard broke In upon us with a shout.
He was once more calling out a sta
tion. I heard It. I knew what he had
"What was that?" I remarked to
Sylvia; “what station may this be? I
She had been gazing absently at the
floor. She no longer prodded it with
her unpitylng umbrella. At iny ques
tion she turned to me, still with an ab
sent-minded expression upon her face.
"This time,” she answered, "why,
this time I think it's—Yes."
Hut that was not what the guard
had said. Far from it. He had said
“One Hundred and Thirty-seventh
street,” as plainly as it is written
"This,” I told her, “is the real sub
way language. It’s strange too," I
went on, as we passed down the aisle,
"that for once both you and the guard
said just the thing you meant.”
She looked at me in a dazed sort
“What—what did I say?” she stam
I shook my head. “You have—said
it," I replied. Once more we alighted
and ascended to the ether above.
It so happened late that afternoon
that T stood, for the first time since
last July, within the precincts of her
"I'm coming In," I had told her. And
I wrent. Once I was there I didn't
know what to say. Generalities, per
sonalities, intellectualities—they all
deserted me. Finally Sylvia came to
"That reminds me," she ventured,
without saying what reminded her,
“that Grace Van Auten's reception is
to-night." Stie stopped. Then she
went on. "Would you like to take
me?” she inquired.
"Would I?” 1 exclaimed. I was only
"What time shall I—?” I added final
"Oh." she replied, "not in a hansom.
Let us take the—the subway. It's so
much more fun, you know."
I understood and acqulesed.
I thought for a moment, and then,
like a flash. I saw my opportunity.
“In that case, since it is your sug
gestion," I remarked recklessly, "you
must pay the fares. 1 shall take the
toll," I added. And then I—up and
“That's one." I said.—"your fare,”
I explained. She seemed to compre
hend at once.
"And that," I added, kissing her
again, "is mine.” We stood there for
a little while. I was wishing that we
might pay over again.
"But, oh.” she exclaimed suddenly,
"how stupid! We need transfers, of
course. Don’t forget that.”
I forthwith paid for and had trans
fers issued. On our road—our sub
way, Sylvia’s and mine—that after
noon, we Issued ten transfers to each
single fare. This took some time.
That night, as we came back, Syl
via looked at me.
“How long,” she inquired, “have you
known that Grace Van Auten and Maj.
Walcott were engaged?”
1 grinned. "Just as long as you have
Sylvia,” I replied; "for about six
months, I guess.”
"How many times," she persisted,
“have you been inside Grace Van Au
“Counting to-night,” I confessed,
“just twice In the last three years.
I’m an awful bad man to call.”
“But look here,” I suddenly de
manded, “how' often did Maj. Walcott
come to call on you?"
“Maj. Walcott!” she exclaimed,
holding down her head. “I—I never
met him before to-night,” she said.
When we reached her home, I turn
ed to Sylvia. "I’m coming in," I
said, “it’s very late, b,ut—I must come

The heart may be weak
just the same as the eyes,
stomach or other organs.
It often happens that a
person is born with a weak ;
heart. Then again dis
ease, fevers, over-exertion,
rheumatism, etc. weaken
the heart. The result is
shortness of hreatli, pal
pitation, pain in the heart,
or in some of the nerves
of the eliest or abdomen.
The heart should be
strengthened with a tonic,
and for this nothing equals
Dr. Miles’ Heart Cure.
"I had LaGrlppe last fall as I
thought in a mild form. I was weak,
tired feeling, and short of breath:
could hardly go about, and a good
deal of the time sort of an asthmatic
breathing and extremely nervous. I
began taking Dr. Miles’ Heart Cura
and Nervine and now I feel so much
better in every way. I am so thank
ful that 1 began taking this medicine,
and shall not hesitate to tell others
how much good it has done me.”
