It had taken Tessie a long time to
save (weiii;, live dollars, and the sum
seemed more than twice this amount
to, her. Twenty-five dollars, Tessie
thought, should be enough to buy the
finest coat, and she was in need of a
coat. Indeed, the ihln little suit
which had been her last year's pur
chase was all Insufficient against win
try winds, and neither Indoors nor
out did poor Tessie know the luxury
So the girl was now alone In the
world, alone that is, except for Fred
erick. Frederick hoped to marry her
when his salary should be raised, and
it was especially because of Freder
ick that Tessie longed for the tan coat
with the fur collar. Frederick ad
mired this coat lit the store window,
when he and Tessie lingered on their
walks. Frederick would buy her a
coat like that some day, he said, and
she would "look like a princess" in it.
Tessie wished to look like a princess
now. that he;' lover might he proud of
her; so painstakingly and self-sacri-ficingly
she saved the twenty-five dol
lars. There was no price tag on the
cloak in the window, and Tessie knew
many discouraging fears, but on the
night of the biting snow storm she
turned resolutely Into the store; she
must have some kind of coat at once,
even if her hope was to be destroyed.
The desired coaf had become to her
almost an obsession, she gloried in
dreams of its 'lining. And when the
ator In her upper bedroom re
mained as cold as her own hands. Tes
sie would draw the old woolen shawl
about her shoulders and think of that
warm fur collar. She felt strangely
abashed as she entered the carpeted
clonk department in the presence of
the stately modish, young woman who
seemed almost pityingly to await her
demands. Tessie's faded little suit
glared out its ghabblnesa. in nil that
grandeur of newness, Courageously,
she approached one of the attendant
young women. "I would like." she
said frankly, "to see a tan cloak with
a fur collar, I can only pay twenty
five dollars." '
The young woman continued her
work of assorting cloaks.
"Wis have nothing like that for
$25.00." she answered brusquely,
"Hut there was a coat In the win
dow " Tessie began, she could not
so easily dispose of her hope. With a
shake of her head, the young woman
moved on to a more promising cus
tomer. Then, as Tessie stood hesitat
ing and dejected, a second young wom
an came around the display table. The
dress she wore was black :nd simply
madtt, her soft, brown hair waved
naturally over her ears, she had the
same calmly superior manner of the
others, which had inspired Tessie with
uncomfortable awe. Hut the face of
this young woman who accosted her
With a pleasant question, was pale
nnd tired. Tessie thought, and her
dark eyes showed sympathetic inter
est. Quickly Tessie responded to that
Interest. "Perhaps," she suggested,
"you might be able to find a warm
tan coat for me. with a fur collar
like fhe one in Ihe window. I can only
pay twenty-five dollars. You see, I
have saved that much."
"Btri twenty-five dollars is a good
deal for n coat, isn't it ?"
"Sometimes," the pale faced young
woman answered gently, "twenty-five
dollars is a good deal. If you will sit
down for a few moments' I will see
about the coaf In the window."
. The sparkles came back again to
Tessie's eyes. I lie kindly voice was so
reassuring. And presently the young
woman returned with a man bearing
the coveted cloak on his arm, nnd
when the man found that the clonk
fitted perfectly Tessie's slight figure,
he carried It away only "long enough
to fold It in n square box, and the
purchase was made for twenty-five
dollars. As Tessie was lovingly bear
ing her burden toward the elevator
she -turned with a sudden impulse
back to the young woman of the sym
"Im so grateful to yon," Tessie
said, "for taking the trouble." The
tiredness of the young woman's face
seemed to vanish in her smile.
"It has been a pleasure' to be able
to do It for yon," she said. Then as
Tessie went happily on her way to
"look like a princess" for Frederick,
the young Voman slipped back into a
dressing room strewn with fur" trimmed
dresses, and here she regained the
hat. which she had left there when
she tried the flresses on, and when
she emerged again out Into the cloak
room, a big man gravely faced her.
"And so, Marlon," he said, "this Is
really you whom I meet for the first
time tonight. As you cume to the as
sistance of that shabby little creature
t snt waiting for you Just behind the
mirror. I had called at your home
and they said I should find you here.
So I heard all that passed, and realized
that you were playing the part of a
clerk Just long enough to give to that
little girl her heart's desire. Dearest,
yon must know that I have long
wanted to nsk a question, but yob
seemed so satisfied In your life of good
fortune, that I wondered if love might
find a place. Today you have shown
me a heart tender In lfs love for oth
ers." The young' worian laughed ns she
slipped her hand through the big man's
"I .'.e heard." , she uid, "that a
wOinfln may not ilwaj wear her
heart upon her uleeve-."
