wcro happening BO rapidly to May Wcllwood thnt , to bor
row a phrnso from the prize ring , flho wns forced to "spnr for
THINGS " Both Tom Murray nnd Harry Smythe had managed to
nrrnngo for their holidays about the Fourth of July and bad
both descended without warning on the little seaside town where
Bho was upending the summer with her mother. From the moment of hla
arrival each acted In a way thnt made it clear to both May and her discern *
Ing mother thnt ho had something on his mind. The rivals kept such a care
ful watch on each other , however , that neither made any progress , and
perhaps this wun ns well , for both were Due fellows , and May found it very
hard Indeed to make up her mind which she would accept While she was
puzzling over the hypothetical question a very bright Idea occurred to her.
"I'm going to toll those two boys that as tomorrow will bo the Fourth
of July I am going to celebrate It by being as Independent as possible and I
want them both to help me. Then I can sec which one can think up the best
scheme for celebrating Independence day. "
When the rivals called , as usual , that evening to see May and keep no
eye on each other , she told them what she wanted.
Immediately each young man saw In his mind's eye the development of
a glorious opportunity. As soon as they could they bade her gopd night ,
after each had vainly thrown out hluts for the other to go first , and then
went to their .different boarding places to mature their plans.
Precisely nt flvo minutes bcforo sunrise Harry and Tom met nt the gate
of May's home , and each bore a nice new silk .
flag. In thinking matters over each had decided
that he could not begin his campaign too early
nnd felt thnt the character of the holiday would
Justify him In making such nn cnrly call with
Btich a present While they were still glaring
nt one another nnd trying to pass th6 matter off
ns n good Joke Mny appeared with a sorvnnt and
prepared to run up the family flng ou the stuff
In the front yard.
"Good morning , Miss Mny , " said Tom. " 1
thought I would give you a little surprise by
bringing you nn American flag. " Ilnrry gurgled
something Inarticulate to the same effect.
"How thoughtful of you both ! " Mny laughed.
"Two eouls with but n single thought , two hearts
thnt beat ns one. But you must hurry if you are
to have them flying nt sunrise. I think it would -TWo

bo n good Idcn for you cnch to select n gatepost OLE THOUGHT. "
nnd nnll your staffs to them. "
At the command * each brought a hammer from his pocket , nnd May
laughed so heartily nt their evident confusion that she could hardly salute
the ling when the sunrise gun was fired nt n nearby fort She then assumed
ns much gravity ns she tfould command nnd Invited them to stny for brenk-
fnst. Once more each bad the same thought , nnd both declined.
Neither had the cownge to return to her vicinity until the shadows begnn
fo fnll In the evening. Then cnch gathered uptlie rockets , plnwheels
nnd firecrackers thnt he had bought late on the previous night at the one
novelty store'In the town. Again they met nt the gnte , nud , though Mny
wns inclined to show her Independence by treating them coolly for hnvlne
left her to herself all day , their evident cbngrln and the similarity of the
bundles they carried were too much for her risibilities.
"I thought perhaps you might let me set off some fireworks down here , "
growled Harry , with a side glare nt his rival.
"And jvou hnd the same Idea , too , did yon ,
Tom ? " May asked , noticing that ho had , ap
parently lost his voice. Then she added : "But
I can't lot you keep right on doing the same
thing nt the same time In the same wny any
longer. If I did , you would both be firing the
rockets together , nnd tbnt would make the cele
bration end too soon. "
When he shadows had fallen sufficiently , nn
ldearpccurred to Harry. If he would set off his
fireworks first , he could get the sent on the
veranda next to May while Tom wns giving nn
exhibition ; and then Tom would be obliged to
content himself with the mother for the rest of
the evening. In doing this , however , he under-
* n f/i/1 tt I A * ! * n 1
i HOPE , MISS MAY ? " "I'1 ' set nilno off flrst , " Harry said , with as
"Oh , thank you ! " said Mny , mid Tom chimed In with n "Thank you" thnt
was rather disquieting. He went down on the lawn by himself nnd fnstcncd
n plnwlicel on either gntcpost. Then , ho started his first rocket , and as it
exploded in bright colors it struck him that the "Ahsl" from the end of the
veranda where May sat seemed to blend. But while he was noticing these
things this wns the conversation he missed :
"Miss Well wood er Mny I inny call you Mny , mayn't I ? No , I didn't
mean any pun by that , but cr 1'vo been thinking of a way to enable you to
make this n memorable Independence dny. "
"AhI" snld Mny ns another rocket exploded. "You were saying"
"I was going to say that If you would er consent to be my wife you
would be independent for the rest of your life. I would do anything"
"But , " said May , "I don't think I'd be showing my Independence Jjy giving
It up on Independence dny. "
"Oh , you wouldn't be giving It up , " Tom protested. "Our mnrrlage could
bo ono of the modern kind that has the word
'obey * left out of the service. May I hope. Miss
May ? "
At that moment Harry returned from tne
lawn sucking a burned thumb and growled ec
"It's your turn now , old man. "
In the excitement of the proposal Tom had
grasped May's hand , and ho felt sure that she
hnd given It n slight pressure ; so ho went to the
lawn to set off his rockets In the spirit of true
celebration. When be was safely out of hearing ,
Harry whispered :
"I am so glad to get a minute alone with
you at last , but that fellow seems to bo always
In the way. "
"You are speaking for yourself , I presume , "
said May , who for some unaccountable reason "THEY GOT ME AL& BATTLED
felt it necessary to defend the attacked. Harry BETWEEN THEM. "
rcallzed.thnt ho bad made n blunder , , ut ho thought the best wny to get out
of It would bo to hurry and say. what lie hnd on his mind.
"You saldj did you not , Miss May , that you wished to make this a notable
Independence day ? " She nodded an assent that he was able to sco by tlio
blaze of pne of Tom's Jubilant rockets.
"Well , I Jiaye thought out a scheme that I think you will admit ia
original , " ho continued.
' "I shall be. gad | to hear it , " said'May. /
f'l thought ( t you would let me glvo up my Independence to you that I
would In that way make the rest of your life one long Independence day ,
Will 'youcr Miss May , will yo\i 'consent to bo my wlfo ? "
But Just at that moment Tom's last rocket exploded In n blaze of glory ,
nn'd lip came back with a hop , skip and a Jump to take d scat on the other
side of May on the veranda. When they at last went away , May shook hands
vwlth them at the door , and ono went away treading on air because to hla
farewell May had added a tender "Yes. "
Laughing nno crying nt the Bamo time , May laid her head on her mother's
ehouldcr and began to explain.
"Yoiuknow bow they both came In the morning with their flags ? "
"Yes , dear. "
"Well , didn't you notice that they arrived nt the ramo moment this
evening nnd that both had exactly the Bamo kind of fireworks to set off ? "
"Oh , they could hardly help that , " said the mother , "for you know there
Is only ono store In town that sells such things , and there Is no variety. "
"Yes , " said May , "but there was something else they did in exactly the
same way. Each one thought that the best way for me to celebrate Inde
pendence day would be to consent to bo his wife. "
"And glvo up your independence ? " naked the mother.
' "Oh , nol" said May. "They both argued It out very prettily and showed
that they would be giving up their independence while I would bo simply
establishing mine. Oh. they got me all rattled between them. "
"But which did you accept ? "
May was about to reply when she suddenly straightened up with the
air of a tragic queen. "Oh , mother ! " she exclaimed.
"What is It , my child V"
"I was so confused when they were going away that I can't for the lift
of me remember whether U wan Tom or Hnrry I whispered 'Yes' to , "
