Glided Fool, however, wis very much
In oarnost and folt thnt ho had cer
tainly Struck tiho koy-noto of itho whole
"Why la It?" suddenly broko In tho
Bwltono who 'had been 'heretofore
looking Intently nt nothing through
tho window, "that girls so oCton hate
each other without cause?"
Tho Baritone had not spoken to nny
ono In irartlcular, but tho Amateur
Thespian know that tho remark was
intended for him questions of that
kind always wore so ho answered a
llttlo wearily: "I supposo you mean
without nny npparont cause, don't
"I supposo so. Yes," assorted tho
Baritone, doubtfully. "You could un
derstand It If you know tho rulo "
"Do you mean it Is all according to a
general rulo?" broko in tho Ladles'
"I mean nothing of tho kind," said
tho Amateur Thespian, cxasporatlngly.
"Womon never follow general rulos.
They are continually surprising to
those who do not under
stand them and disappointing to
those who do. If ever a rulo should
becomo general with thorn they would
signalize tho occasion by breaking it.
But," ho added, turning to tho Bari
tone, "girls hate each other because
they can't help it. Take for Instance
the case you are thinking of, that of
the Society Girl and the Now Arrival."
The Baritone colored a llttlo at this.
It was the case he was thinking of. but
ho did not think anyone knew it. How
ever tho Amateur Thespian knew more
than h was given credit for, which wa
often not much. "These two girls." he
went on, "can't get along together bo
cause they realize they are lighting on
the same plane with the same tactics.
They each realize in the othor a dan
gerous and well-equipped rival and
woman-like they won't run the race
out fair, but try to push each other out
of the way. The fact that they are
both brunettes and both popular with
the same crowd of boys makes the fight
all the harder. A girl will hate an
other irl merely because she Is
Tho Ladles' Man sniffed incredu
lously. ''Why is It then," said ho,
"that a pretty girl Is always taken into
a fraternity? I should think the
other girls would not vote for her, ac
cording to your explanation."
"Well," said the Amateur Thespian,
indifferently, "it's partly because thoy
are afraid some one else will get her
and crow over them and partly be
cause they are ashamed to acknowl
edge their jealousy. Their motives in
this case are the same as their motives
everywhere; easy to see if you don't
try to go too deep for them."
He carefully put his cigar back in his
mouth and blow a heavy cloud of
smoke into the thick atmosphoro.
"There isn't a single girl in college ."
lie went on, putting his foot over on
the Star Idiot's hat, "that Is especially
pretty who Is really popular among all
her sex. Except," he added, his faco
brightening as Tie spoke, "oxcopt the
Queen of Hearts."
The Youthful Romoo lay listlessly
on the cushioned window scat, propped
up with pillows. le certainly has a
good right to lie down for he had
walked out to call on the Dobutanto.
Ho had not found her at homo and was
consequently melancholy, aside from
being fatigued. He was gazing pon
slvoly at alio celling with a far away
look in his eyos.
"Look at him," said tho Quarter
back, who was standing against tho
wall with his hands In his pockots.
"Sho would ronlly fool compllmontod
If she knew how hard ho was thinking
"He would give 'all tho world to bo
near her,' " quoted tho Commissioned
Officer with a laugh.
"Ho couldn't, very well do that," re
marked the Amateur Thespian, dryly.
"He doesn't come any nearer owning
the one than the other."
There was a general laugh at this,
but the Youthful Itomeo did not look
up. He was too pre-occupled.
"Yet she wouldn't stay at home
when ho called," said tho Baritone,
and then raising his voice to catch his
attention, "that Is a thing I wouldn't
Something In tho last word made
. the Youthful Romeo look up with it
atart. But when he flaw ho had mis
understood, ho regained his equilib
rium. "Why don't you get somo girl who
lives olosor to you?" wont on tho lrro
prosslblo Baritone. "Aro they so Irani
to get that you aro forced to go out on
tho frontier for thorn?"
"They aro no hardor for mo than for
you," retorted tho Youthful Romeo,
hotly. "You chaso with tho Society
Girl because no one olso can stand
you." Tho Youthful Romeo could bo
brutal when ho choso and tonight his
Ill-temper mado him ungontlcmanly.
"They say," said tho Baritone osten
sibly addressing .tho celling, "that he
Joined tho glco club Just to get his
voice in training to serenade hor."
"Sho wouldn't take my volco for a
buzz-saw, anyway," sneered tho
Youthful Romeo, very pointedly.
"I doubt ithat," said tho Baritone
Thoy probably would havo mixed
with oaoh other In another second If
tho Shy Youth had not Interfered.
"I don't blanio tho Youthful Romeo
for standing up for hor," whispered
tho Commissioned Officer to tho
Studious Kid. "Thoro Isn't another
girl in school that makes 'the stir sho
does except tho Queon of Hearts."
Before thoro could be any further
hostilities tho Gilded Fool got up and
looked at his watch. "I will havo to
go homo," ho said sadly. "Papa
doesn't like It when I am out after 10."
When the Baritone and the Amateur
Thespian were going to bod that night,
tho Baritone was fooling a llttlo
worried for the Amateur Thespian.
"Why Is It," he said, "that you are al
ways roasting tho girls when there Is
no cause for it? There isn't a girl in
school that you dont roast, is thoro?"
"Xo. 1 guess not," said the Amateur
Thespian very dreamily. "Except,"
he murmured, half asleep, "except the
Queon of Hearts."
