An Original Story by a Young Lady
Many Columbus People Know
"Bat I rather think it ha; its
compensations'' remarked the giri in
the hammock, gazing vaguely at a
handful of yellow and sreen fringe.
"Would you mind telling me what
you mean by "it ' " inquired tne
broad shonldered young fellow in the
wicker chair opposite. .
" Why I mean staying at home this
summer not going to Europe or Port
land or or Lake Okoboji you know,"
she finished explanatorily.
"I suppose I'm one," ne remarked
complacently, as he stooted to flick
off an ant from the white frock
whose ruffles swept the grass so
alluringly. ' But what are the oth
ers?" "You" scornfully "you have to
be compensated for. Do you know
Bastes, I sometimes think vacations
aren't good for you. They make you
'Only appreciative of my real
worth. But what, as I said before
are the compensations?"
Well, one is that everybody feels so
sorry for you that they tell you all
their good times. I'm getting to be
known as the gooi1 listener." This
with the roguish dimple in her cheek,
very much in evidence.
"Gracious, Bess, who ever gave yon
that recommendation?" An otniaons
silence from the hammock and then a
frigid, "So sorrv I've been baring
you, Mr. Randolph, What were yon
about to remaik?"
"That's all right, Bess, I was about
to remark that he had mighty good
"It was a girl", she remarked with
slightly less frigidity. There's aunt
Clara, on the porch guess I'll go and
ask her how Toby is."
"Now see here, Bess" burst out the
long suffering youth "tnat cat's all
right cats don't die just because
black dogs chas them. And you pro
mised I could stay a long time this
afternoon " "You could talk to aunt
Clara, too' came cooly from the ham
mock, as Miss Wainwright carefully
inspected tne toe of her white canvas
shoe. "I believe I'll try plain soap
and'water as a result of her investiga
tion. "On the cat, Bess: I can't keep up."
"No on my shoes I've always used
that whiting stuff before."
"Oh I see" wih the air of' a man
who doesn't see and doesn't hope to
see, "But aren't you going to tell me
about the girl who agrees with the
world at large including your humble
servant that vou are a good listener?"
"It was Constance Greenley '
"When did she get back?" demand
"Why, Bastus, she's been home two
weeks. Haven't you called?"
"You know reading law is very
exacting, Miss Wainwright "Hum
I know anyway, she was telling me
things that happend when she was in
New York recovering from the fever. "
"Mother said she bad an awful pull,
wasn't expected to live, and all that"
put in Bastus soberly.
"I know", and then, thoughtfully
with an odd little quaver in her voice,
" Wouldn't we have missed Constance

tbeegh? But as I was saying," she
went on bripkly, ' it was when she
was quite well but awfully thin.
Why, Bastus. she only weighed nine
"Terrible! Now you, for example."
This, with a grin which could not
conceal the admiration in his gray
She was staying with Erma
Gregg" went on Bess, ignoring the
interruption " they all decided to go
down to Coney Island."
" Excellent place for an invalid, I
should supppose' dryly rmarked her
, "Kastus, your' a particularly poor
listener. Didn't I tell yon she was
all well jpst needed amusement?"
"Just the same you thought it was
awful that she weighed only ninety
six pounds " he contended stoutly.
" Well anyway Erma and Theodore
and Constance and all of them, with
Sf r. and Mrs. Gregg started out to
take in the attractions. The first
thing they 6truok was the steeple
chase. Did yon ever see one Bastus V '
"Tell me about it." he said eva
sively but with a twinkle in his eye.
"It was a big electrical affair with
wooden horses, you know, going
around on seven or eight parallel
tracks. There was a judge and a big
crowd watching and all that. When
they tried to cet Constance to ride she
' Balked, did she?" observed Bastus
with a reminiscent glance at the girl
in the hammock.
"The roree, do you mean?" in
quired that small person with a sug
gestion of ice bergs.
' ' Yes er the electrical apparatus, ' '
assented the hypocrite.
"But they all teased her," went on
Bess, ''and pretty soon Constance was
afraid she was spoiling the fon. so
she got on. t seems that thespeed of
the horses is regulated by the weight
of the rider but Gunstanec didn't
know this. Well when that horse
began to go faster and faster, Con
stance dropped her dignity and hung
onto the horse's mane for dear life."
"Bet she was a graceful picture,"
"When she started," continued
Bess, with a little giggle, "she was
next to Theodore, and you knew how
fat he is. But pretty soon she didn't
notice him and she was afraid to look
around and see. The horse kept going
faster, the wind whistled aronnd her
ears, and she was simply scared to
death. Finally, in desperation, she
took a fresh grip on the horse's mane,
and turned around. If you believe it,
the others were miles behind, and
poor Con was scudding aronnd so fast
tnat the spectators were mere blots."
Bets was sitting up very st-ongly and
her animation gave point to the story
she was telling. "At last she began
to approach the judge's stand and
breathed a sigh of tkankfullness at
the prospect of terra firms. Imagine
her horror" this with a dramatic
wave of the hands "when the horse
sailed right past. Constance didn't
know that you have to make the cir
cuit three times before the machine
"Money's worth" interrupted her
"Well I should say so. When she
bad been going what seemed hours to
ner, and her arms simply ached from
holding on the blue flag came down,
and the horse stopped. Theodore and
Erma and the rest were in sight but
Mr. Gregg helped Constance off just
as the judge announced that the race
had been won by the lady in the pink
waist, and if she would present her
self for the judgeB, the prize would
be awarded her. Constance gasped
but Erma and Theodore came up just
then and draggd her up to the judge.
And what do you suppose the prize
was Bastus ?"
"A Kentucky pony, 1 expect"
with a grin.
'A ticket for another trip "ripped
Bsee. "Just fancy."
"Holy Smoke! and you say Con.
stance is alive to tell the story?"
"Bastus. you don't suppose she
went again? "indignantly demanded
"Sure thing," she had the ticket,"
"She's got it yet. I saw it in her
memory bock." She smiled across at
Bastus as she rose and shook oat her
"But Bess, is that the only story
you've heard?" came plaintively from
Bastus as he rose with evident reluc
tance from the wioker chair.
"You'll have to improve, Bastus, if
yon want another. You area't a good
listener. I'm going to moke some
lemonade want to help? "she added,
smiling over her shoulder as she
started for the hoase.
