at her side, reconciling himself with
what grace he could to Miss Loraine's
" Yes," she answered, almost inuudi

she had sprung from the violet cushions
and was foremost in the gathering
Bewildered, and for once shaken out
of his boasted repose of manner, Percy
Dudley followed her.
An used woman, her beautifully silvery
bairdishevoled, herbUek dress covered
with dust, had just been ifted from the
ground by a burly policeman, and was
instantly claimed by a young man.
"Will some one call a carriage'!'"
cried Lynn Maples, his mother lying
sense less across his breast.
"Tnko mine! pray, tnke mine!'' the
astonished Dudley heard Miss Lorainc
Lut oclore he could get h s breath,
he was shouldered one side by Lynn,
who had accepted Miss Loraine's offer
without a thought, and was only anx

Though six-and-twenty. his mother
had hitherto been the sole lady of his
love, and she was a little surprised to
h. ar him exclaim suddenly, out of a
reverie, Ihe next day:
" Wasn't she boautilul?"
" Who, Lynn?"
"The young lady who offered uie her
"You forget, dear," placidly, over
her knitting. "I did not see her."
" I wonder who she is?"
And Lynn continued to wonder. Hi
had left the phaeton at the St. James
hotel, and the proprietor bad assured
lim that all would be right. Appar
ently the episode had closed.
On the contrary, Annie Joraine, a re
markably independent young lady for
one ot but twenty years of age, had
taken pains to inform herself that Mrs.
Maples was not seriously injured.
She asked a hundred questions of her
informant who chanced to know the
Maples and learned that tht y were .in
moderate ircumsiimces ; perfectly re
spectable; tliat they lived in a flat in
Motel Dighton; that Lynn was a dry
goods clerk, ami supported his mother
and a young si.-ter.
Percy Dudley stood by chafing.
" It seems to me you are very much
interested in that fellow, Annie!" he
exclaimed, at last.
"I am, I think," she answered, care
lessly. Dudley looked at her from under n
frowning brow. He. Percy Dudley, the
irresistible, the best match ol the season,
had paid this girl the most unmistakable
intentions for four months without the
slightest sign of having made but the
most ordinary impression upon her.
Yet lie continued his suit, since there
was not another girl worth one hundred
thousand dollars in his set, nor any
where that lie knew of, to be had.
His jealous ejP9 observed that in
driving with Miss Lorainc, they never
passed the store where Lynn was em
ployed without turning her glance
toward the entrance; and once, when
lie chanced to he tilling a lady's car
riage with bundles, she bowed to him,
with a faint Hush upon her lily face.
From that moment Dudley hated
Lynn. Though he did not for a moment
entertain the thought that Miss Lorainc
gave him more than a passing approval,
and he could see that the young man
had something noble and attractive in
his air, he was jealous even of her mere
respec t for him.
Jl was mi re ace id i lit lli:.l tin' two
met again and again during the winter,
at church, at a fair, in a picture gallery,
where Miss Ioraine offered Lynn the
sweetest courtesy, but it infuriated
"Curse the fellow! I'll make him
cut his own throat before long!" he mut
tered. He caught Lynn out, and obtained
nn introduction. It was in a concert
-Cood many ladies present. By the
way, there is Miss Annie Ixiraine in
front. Do you know her, Mr. Maples?"
-I have the pleasure slightly," re
plied Lynn, a Hush coming into his
frank, blonde face.
"Very beautiful, I think. Do you
know where she resides, Mr. Dudley?"
"What, don't know? Oh. up town
somewhere!" answered the other, catch
ing at a sudden thought. "So you
.loiVt know mu h about her circum
stances?'' "No. Do you?"
" Something," carelessly. " She's :n
orphan. Lives witli an aunt. By tin
way, my dear sir. she seems to know you
better than you do her."
"She did me a favor last fall, on tie
occasion of an accident."
"Ah! Well, it seems that on that oc
casion you took the young lady's fancy
In short, she fell in love with you."
"With me?" stammered Lynn, blush
ing furiously. "Iain not worthy th
"There is no account in tr for women':
fancy," burst forth Dudley, savagely.
Lynn was too bewildered to notic
"You are a friend of hers?" lieaskul
"Ob. yes an old, and intimate one
She's an odd girl given toimaeeout.t.'i
ble fancies, you know. Oh. yes. I knon
her well! And my advi e to you is te
strike while the iron is hot. and ofl'i i
yourself to Miss Lornine that is, it's,
"I I admire her very much!" stam
mered Lynn, trembling with agitation
" Yes, certainly ; I understand. Well,
she's goinsr South next week; but she'll
be at the Parker Fraternity to-morrow
evening. You'd better see her there,
and make a sure thing of it. I'll givt
Toll niv word she'll accept you."
' Thank yon! thank you!" murmur. '
Lynn, the lights swimming before bU
eyes, and the music fading on his ears.
He eared no longer for the latter, lb
got ::way out of the hall, and spent a
restless night, full of excitement and
the most exalted emotion. For the first
time he knew that lie loved the lily
faced, brown-eyed 'girl.

fi'liows in h.vc. But a n ore Ion. -t.

touch of a woman's band.

cordi'.i'uy of manner which made her ir- J
