A RECEIPT FOR A WIFE.
Ilarri lid brook, coilogo graduate of

scarum fahion to work olt sonm exub

i:i in tin adventure wlnn ha ascended
the roof of tlio old brown church where
Ihoworkmon wero p pin i and ham
mering id j.ibberin ;. II ha I climb, d
up for a view of the buildings of tho
c y an I "tlio giory of th iiu."
Ho was a goo 1 -looking, compactly -built
fc low in n c iot linen suit, a he
ba meed lum elf up on tho staging, ia
djlcntly, nnd exchanged civil words
with the workmen, lliscycs camo luck
from Trinity and tin "Now Smith" to
his iinn diato surrounding. A psirk
nnd two tad family lintels found. d
threo tides of tho church. Directly he
low him wero the roofs of dwellings
with blooitiin g bick yardt. Tin stay
ing extended up to the brown east
win, which fol.led itself against tho
body of the church, prom hi-i point of
view ho could look into th') b.itk third
story window 'of tho win;;, which hid
boon onvcited into a homelike board
ing house. Ho had a ll.othig plimpso
of t.iry muslin draperies, which brink
onod a feminino occupant. Hit curiosi
ty was excited tit o:ice. II) c uhl see
I icl ii-ch hung low against a delicnto
wall paper, a well -tided bookcase, nut!
a pale green nnd salmon carpet. A
writing desk littered with papers stoo l
near tho farther window.
Ho was woaving a 1 it of romance
around the occupant when a shapely
arm and shoulder appeared ia the win
dow next him, and a slim white hand
which lm could have almott touched
drew down tho curtain quickly.
Feeling a il his uriosity had been
robukod, he turned and walked along
tho staging slowly to tin rear of th)
church. As lio retraced lm steps ho
had another glimpse of fin arm and
shoulder 'clothed in cool lavender at the
desk, writing, hut he could see nulling
of tho face except the tip of a pink er.r,
and brown dizzes stirring in the Incize
over her tcinph s. Ho K it something
of tho student recklessness of his sopho
inoro period urging him to vault into
tin room frc.n his. perch and npnlogi.'. i
afterward for tho intrusion. He had
boon invulnerable to tho smiles of
"aweet girl graduates," but he wat pos
sessed to mnko tho ucquaintatic ) of thti
deni::ua of the wing under the chinch
eavos, who kept out of hit rango of
viioD nnd gavo hiiu no chance for a bi
of sly flirtation.
She had nn atmosphere. II) felt its
i .fliicnco in widening circles around
him. Ho half bolieved she was not
I retty. Pretty women were not apt to
havo this magnetic, far-reuchin atmos
phere. Ho could soo the arm moving as
she wroto. W'a she novelist, or poo!,
or copyid ho wondered.
Hj dirtclod Lis glnss over thu city
and wntchod th? window, alternate,
ly. Presently ho could see tho pen laid
down, impntiontly, it seomol. Then
tho shouldors and frizzes disappeared
from tho dosk and soon ho fo'.t suro ho
hoard her door opan and shut. Phe h id
"If it wasn't for tho eyes of these
workmen I'd climb into the room and
leavo a note on her desk, or a couplet to
her shoulder and frizzes," ho thought
Just thon a papor sailed out through
tha window, whirling and turning
summersaults as if mad with delight in
its mission. It circled rouud the chim
ney oa a roof below, peoped into a sky
light, dipped down like a bird upon a
Tine creeping over a trellis in tho yard,
flew back to tho open window as if to
return home, changod it) mind and gy
rated within range of tlio linen -clad fi '
ure with a tantalizing "catch-mo-if-you-can"
expression. At tho risk of losing
his balance, he capturod tho hatf Bhect
of note, with words upon it, and was
debating whether to road or not read,
lest he should encroach upon a private
matter, when ho beenmo awaro that it
wr in-rely a pros'dc receipt for some
in ancy p :id to T? own & (J)., furnituro
deal rs, by K ite (i lo.ech.iso.
Gjoscchnse! ye go li! The namo was
like a dash of ice water. I' mid it be
long to tho graceful arm and fdiou'dt r
ai.d crimpling brown huirf Should ho
m ike tho pnper an cxcino for calling to
return it? But ho couldn't ina'jo u: his
mind to nsk for Miss Ooosi ch .sc. Tho
rotnanco seemed to ho oozing out of his
little ndvontuni. Perhaps it didn't be
long to her. It seemed to be an insult
to thu shoulder und pi ik car tip to
couple them with such a name.
Suddenly ho remembered ho was to
meet his cousin Bertha nt thu depot on
tho 11 :'.0tr:i:i. There was no timo to
spare. II) sli ped tho paper into his
Ii ion vest pocket und hurried down to
tho street, l.i tho excitement lint fol
lowed Denim's arrival and thu drives
and li'irbor excursions to bo planned ho
forgot Miss (.ioosnrhasc nml thu foldod

'i'ho very first night ho got back to
the city he dreamed In was standing
on tho pale green and salmon carpet of

trying to compoin a poum to the lavender-draped

racking his brain to tin il a word that

either d iiuctly or indirectly, hit druwu

A week passed. H irrii's chamber
wa to be newly furiiidiod, and lm set
out one morning, commissioned to se

rather f .stidious taste. As he walked
up thu largo furniture rooms of Drown

peting, the identical patti rn of that in

"Y 'U must product! tin receipt, Mist

".Miss (i.iosechase!'' he questioned,
lifting his hat and ignoring tho wiry

which revolves as tho horse is driven
