Now, this Is a great mistake, for If the en gagement Is lo be a reasonably long one, such a Btate of things canno)' last. Diner Ing Boclat duties must andutthould come between sometimes, yet If a iiiqn ias been In the habit of devoting all jhnVtinato a girl, when the mement comat?tht a wild yearning for masculine' society and games overtake him, there will prpbably Hie tears and reproaches on her pail. - ' The girl does not realise that the very things that make, as. fhe Irishman said, an engagement the beat part of matrimony are the enforced absences and delightful reunions. As for an exacting lover! Think twice before you marry him, i for a man who "can't bear you out of hlsjilght." and who makes a fuss every tlmo you accept an Invitation not extended to him, looks re markably like developing Into a domestic! tyrant. Neither a man nor a girl engaged has the right to a monopoly of "the other's society and attentions. They muy demand to be first In every way, but; as a man once said, "a fellow needn't kick other women's trains aside Just, because he wants to reach a girl at the other end of the room." He can atlll be civil. At a dance, for Instance, It would be most unreasonable for either to object to the other giving some donees to other part ners. A girl would naturally let her fiance have her program first; but It would only make them look both ridiculous If they danced together the whole evening. Cupid, remember, lives on frefdom. ' Give him all you can. It la not only in marriage that love dies of over-feeding, of Indiges tion. It can happen In the period, of pro bation, too.- Be sparing with your love let teis and caresses.

In detail the teacher nar- lated the facts connected whh John Smith ar.d his adventures with 1 tie Indians. Hhe told how Smith was captured by the In dians, how he was sentenced to death, Sn1 how Pocahontas saved his life. Then the rtory turned to the marriage of John Rolfa and Pocuhontas, and among the many things she told them in connectlnon with this unusual marriage that brought peace between the Indians and colonists, waa of their little baby boy, and also that they visited England, and everywhere Poca hontas received marked attention. At the end of her Interesting story she conducted a brief examination to see how well the pupils remembered what she had told them. The first tiuestion was: "And what did the marriage of John Rolfe and Pocahontas bring?" "A baby." anxiously chirped a boy In the back seat, and the school had recess. National Monthly. " you think It would be well for us to be serious?" she asked. "Good heavens!" I replied. "Haven't I been serious? Why, 1 have been making love to you steadily now for two weeks. Could anything be ' more serious than that?" She regarded me stolidly. "It has not been without Ita humorous aspects." she asserted, "as. for example, when you asked me If I would marry you." I reflected. V "Perhaps," I said, "It Is Just as well that you regarded that part of It as humorous. You might have felt, you know, that I was taking advantage of you. It Is one thing to make love, It Is another to marry." She sighed incontinently. "And yet," she observed, not without a alight touch of Impatience, "you are only Just perceiving this. It has taken you all this time to arrive at the truth." "Will you forgive me?" I said gently, "You must remember that you are ahead of me la so many things. I perceive my mistake, of course. But It Isn't too late, you know. I can atlll do this, with an ever Increasing gratitude to you for showing me the way." "That la the point." she declared, with a touch of severity. "There has been too much of It. 1 know all that you know about making love, and' " "1 am learning more all the time," 1 whispered. "Surely " "I know all that 1 care to know about what you know," she continued, Ignoring my Interruption, "and I wish to know something about your knowledge of other things. How can we continue to ' be well, friends If there Is but one thing thai you can talk about." "Why should we be friends?" ' ; "You do not wish It?" "Certainly not." It suddenly, occurred to me, that a crisis had risen between us. I saw that It was all or nothing. I must act.' '; "It Is this," I continued rapidly;' "are you tired of my love making, and you wish to know if there Is anything els that I ran do that will make our company en durable to each other. No, there Is not. 1 am hopeless In all other respects. , You know that 1 cannot make love you have tested me. Why, in two weeks' time I have done nothing but talk. I haven't even kissed you." . . ,, At this Instant I took her firmly In my arms. "But this has got to end," I said sternly. "I am going to now. There! and there! and there!" .
