That person who In sibilant childish whispers Is said to bt
able to 'Jsee thlnfs" would bo Just the side-partner for Danny Ino.
In his fin ten ho could gather all the tangled myriad-colored
threads of marled romances and straighten them out as Oraclosa
of faery-land did with the help of Percinet All In a night, my
goodness! On the trail of gifts and flowers ho would sneak yel vet

a smiling .a-e would help Dan C. a heap. ' .
-. . There are soma tender-hearted girls who sense life In every
thing that moves even If it be a breath of wind as the flower sways,
who are hind to everything, and who would caress and love a
flower for Its own soft sweet sake even if It came from a man
whose name makes her Hp cur. A course here wnat could an
eavesdropper do but go back with "nothing to report" from the
front? But the "see-er of things" would know. For there woujd
be no ghost of a lover hovering over the dewy mass of the blossoms
that brought his heart along. " ' ,v . ,
But nil flowers! The spyer with the eyes of the medium here
would chjck'e deep and write In his little black note-book with a
sharp per.cll, "I've found her out find description of t' e man over
page." For, over the red and white roses she held in cupping,
caressing hands and brushed tenderly against her Hps, cob-web
like, spun frm velvet rose to satin one glistening with dew, would
bend the rl it.de of a face. Just a man's hardy, perhaps homely face
but very aplendld to the girl who eyes him above his flowers.
