A WOMAN'S REPLY.
A School Girl's Idea, of a Thrflfag Love
In the first place there were two girls
who were churns. Their names were
Maude and Grace. Grace was light and
always on the defensive. Maude was
dark and inclined to be on the offen
sive. So of course it wasn't long till
they quarreled. A genuine quarrel it
was. They spoke to each other after
wards but that was all. Then came the
man. He was tall and light, he wore
his hair parted in the middle and his
name was Harry.
Grace liked him, quite well, and he
liked her. Maude liked him too, but
he didnt notice her. In the early
autumn Harry took Grace to a party.
It was moonlight and Maude saw them
come across the square. She had want
ed to go with Harry herself, but Harry
didn't see it in that light. In the win
ter Harry got quite sweet on Maude
and she almost forgave him for taking
Grace. Then a tall, dark young man
with black eyes, happened in at Grace's
quite often of an evening or on Sunday
afternoon. His name was George, but
Maude liked Harry better.
Now Harry and George were great
friends, and George thought Grace
might get away from him, so when he
went home for the summer he told
Harry to take care of her and in par
ticular to take her to a certain recep
tion. Harry told Maude about it be
fore he told Grace. Maude nodded her
head and 6aid, "Oh, yes," out loud, but
she thought, -Oh Harry, if I don't get
even with you I"'
One day when dark, gray clouds
covered tbe sky and the wind blew cold
from the east. Maude and Harry stop
ped to rest, after a long tramp, on an
old log. Of course they talked as all
young people do, but incidentally Har
ry said, "Maude do you know that I
love you!" Maude poked the gray leaf
mould at her feet vigorously with her
"Since you told me, I do." she said.
Harry looked at her in surprise .
'Why, Maude," he said, "don't you
"Yes,' she answered, slowly.
"Will you marry me then, sweet
heart!" he said. His arm slipped
around her waist and he looked plead
ingly down into her face.
"No." she said, shortly. "No, and
do you want to know why? It's 'cause
you took Grace to those two parties."
Harry was astonished, but she re
mainedfirm. "So," she said. "No. I
do it to punish yon."
Autumn wore into winter. But
Maude's answer was still the same.
Harry had ceased to plead with her
though he vas a rather disconsolate
bachelor, as he sat before the fire in his
room. It was late in February and he
had piled many logs on to the blaze.
Outside a chill rain was falling. Of
course he was thinking of Maude, and
wishing ehe would change her mind.
The smoke rings curled away from his
cigar and faded. "Just as my happi
ness does," he thought.
The door opened and a radiant little
The Pullman-car porter had settled
himself for a comfortable nap, having
snugly tucked away the last of hJ
charges, including the fat man in "Low
er Eight" and the timid young thing
who had boarded the train at Norfolk.
The porter stirred uneasily in his nap,
for the snoring that was arising from
Lower Eight" drowned the roar of the
train. The snoring came in gurgles,
moans and whistling, the like of which
had never been heard in heaven above
or on the earth beneath. The curtains
iot "Lower Eight" had swung slightly
open with the lurch of the train, and
the fat man could be seen lying on his
broad back, with his mouth gaping
As his slumber deepened, he was ap
parently in the last throes of choking
when a neatly rolled umbrella, held iu a
slender white hand, crept out from
"Lower Seven," where the timid young
thing was ihrinking, and made a vicious
jab between the curtains of "Lower
Porter! Porter!" came a whoop
from "Lower Eight," and the bell trilled
'What is it. sahr'" cried the startled
porter as be bounded down the aisle.
"Did you stab me in the side!" de
manded the fat man in dire wrath.
"Oh. no. sah!" replied the porter. "I
never done no thing like that! You
must have been dreaming, sah. ''
"Confound you! I'm not areaming!"
growled "Lower Eight."
"Well, sah," argued the porter, his
black hand concealing his gleaming
ivories, "yon know that when you
turned in you bad took a little moah
than was jess good fo' any gemman."
It's mighty funny," muttered ''Low
er Eight;" but he was not in a position
to contradict this statement, so he sub
sided. The porter returned to the
smoking room, ruminating on the
strange hallucinations produced by too
long a dallying in tbe dining car.
The snores began again in rising
crescendo. Just as the teeth of ner
vous passengers were well set, the um
brella stole again from "Lower Seven,"
and another vicious lunge made the
snore change to a howl of rage.
"Porter." yelled "Lower Eight," '!
tell you some one is stabbing me'"
"Kaint be nuffin' like that, sah,"
replied the porter, coming up sooth
ingly. "I aint slept a wink, and no
body's been movin in this car, or I'd
a-seen them. You're jess bavin' a bad
"It's no dream!" shouted the fat
man. "Wbj, my Eide is sore. Feels
like there's a hole there you could stick
your first in."
"Now you go to sleep again, sah,"
coaxed the porter, "and I'll watch that
you aint tetched."
The rumble of the train was once
more lost in the vocal exercisos from
"Lower Eight," and the porter, pulling
hi3 cap over his eyes, napped in the
"Ouch! Ouch! Help! Help!" and a
red face shot out of "Lower Eight."
The porter slouched ap the aisle, dis
gust written on his countenance.
"Gawd, porter," groaned the fat man.
"Is there a doctor on board! I'm hor
ribly punctured! Did you see the w.
lain when he stabbed me!"
"Kaint nobody stab you, sah,' re

came uncomplimentary comments, but
there waB silence in "Lower Seven,"
where lay the timid young thing who
bad got on at Norfolk.
"Never had such dreams in my life, '
Baid "Lower Eight," addressing the car
in general. "Dreamed the same thing
three times in succession. I believe it
is a warning. If any accident is goiog
to happen tonight, I die witE my botfts
en. I'm going to get up."
A thrashing about told tbe other
passengers that the fat man was as
good as his word. A sigh of relief was
breathed through the car as the fat
man lumbered by the curtains to the
Emoking room, to spend the rest of the
night brooding over the myste'ry.
When the timid young thing crept
from her berth the next morning, there
was something about the smile wnich
lurked about her mouth that made the
