"Goodnight, old 1111111, goodnight,"
echoed 1 ho voices of hult 11 dozon
young fellows, as thoy descended the'
Bteps and started up tho ivvenuo. Tho
old man In tho doorway watched
them until they tlisnnnunrod uudor a

After the coektnlla had been sipped
and the cigars lighted, the young men'
lounged back In their chairs with that
half-w enrled content jiocullar to
moneyed metropolitan youth.
"That wits a corking good story
Carter told," romarked 0110.
Yes; wondor where ho got it."
"Hah!" oxelalmed a third. "That
sort of up-to-dato Homco and JulloU
business wearies mo. Tho3e tilings
don't happon now-a-dnys you know."
Ho puffed a ring of cigar sinoko, blowi
an arrow of sinoko through it at tho.
blinking lights of the ehandoller and
assumed his choicest blaso expression.
The others were silent for n mo
ment. Did you notice how tho story af
fected the old man?" asked 0110.
Yes; I saw what wns coming and
tried to stop Cnrtor. but 1 couldn't.
The story was too much llko one my
father used to toll about tho old man;
himself. Tho two were clnssmates at
college before tho war, you know.
The old man fell in love with a town
girl and sho with him. I guos. I.
happened in his junior year and he
dropped behind fearfully In his work.
That biimmer sho died, and he came
back to college all broken up. But)
father says he buckled down to woik
and led the class when he graduated.
He has been at work over since
Never looked at a woman aftorward."
'He's missed tho host part of his
life." said the blnso youth.
The old man closed the door after
his visitors. Ho extinguished the
lights and sank into a big chair before
the grate. He gazed into tho glowinR
depths of tho coi.ls. All was still save
the crackling: of tho fire and the faint
tick-tick of a clock In tho next room.
He turned to a sholf and from
among ponderous law volumos took a
little book, old-fashioned and thumb
worn. Ho oponcd It gently, and drew
from the yellow pages a fragile bunc'i
of withered .violets. Ho bent forward
to the light with his eyes on their

flowers, tenderly crushed them, then,
prebsed their fragments into tho
brown bowl. With a taper ho lightod
Like altar incenso the blue smoke
filled tho firelight, then curled and
fadfd into darknose. Through it the
old man dreamed. He boh eld the
vision of an old-fashioned garden be
hind a white colonial mansion. In
the distance he saw the Ivy-clad walls
of tho old college. He felt tho soft
spring air on his face. He saw '"
rainbow petals of tho old npplo trco
rail in the hreozo that wafted Inland
from tho ocean tho great wciinm-oil

Then he saw her standing l tm

caressing rays of tho low-hnngMK

and guvo him a llttlo bunch of lolots.
Ills pipe dropped unheeded 10 the
floor. UN head fell upon his breast.
Tears la in the wrlnklos of his agod
face. The smoke hid away In tho
shadowy corners. Tho fitful Are grow
