Nobody la the merry little group
knew that two nights before Bates had
again been refused by Margery. No
body knew so well as Margery herself
that he had made up his mind never to
ask her again. But that was all before

Katherine mentioned the Philippines.
"There's one good thing about it,"
said Margery. "It will only take one
officer away from the post and that
ought to be some consolation."

"Now, Katherine, you're getting fool

well but Just because I've danced with
him a few times that's no sign that I
shall pine away when he's gone.".
"Oh no!" Katherine grimaced, and

marred his enthusiasm and that was
Margery. "Ifs," "buts" and girls!. How

So all of that last day passed. In
the evening some of the young people
came over to Major Keene's but Bates
failed to appear.
"Busy packing.1 said Somen when
somebody asked for him.
"Well. It seems to me If I were in
his place and were the only officer or
dered off I'd come around and get my
self lionised," and Katherine M""""
looked very much disgusted.
Margery banged the piano until ner
fingers nearly dropped off. Three
times Bates fairly ran past the Major's
that he might not yield to the temjjta-
kaew that he was killing time la order
that the band could play the longer. .
When the little ceremony was over
the men were dismissed and to the
rollicking strains of a Sousa march the
musicians filed to their quarters.
Bates crossed the parade and Joined

Bates was nowhere to be found.
Ho failed to materialize as starting
time drew near and It was decided to
Institute a search for him. Margery
was not the only post girl who had
been casting sheep's eyes at the young
officer and while she absolutely refused
to move, saying she would wait for
them to return, she could not view the
other girls' solicitude mh composure.

was obdurate. -
"111 go over there with Mrs. Brooks
and Captain Stiles," she said, "and then
you can fled me when you come back."
"All right," tney said and on they
went.. eJsa'-4BV- '
Instead of seeking Mrs. Brooks and
Captain Stiles Margery stayed Just
where they had left her and there she
was when Sates dodging here and
there through the crowd almost knock
ed her down.
"I beg your pardon, Miss Margery
he gasped. ,
Yes," she said, looking about her in
evident contusion. -
"Pardon my awkwardness, but
where are the folks? I've been looking
all over for them."
They're looking for you. too," said
Margery. "I was Just going." ,
"Going? Where?" r
"Home." -' W

going to wait and see the fellows off.'
Well. I've said goodbye to all of
them but you so now I guess 111
go," and a little hand fluttered out to
him. He took It and as he raised his
big campaign hat with the other, Bates
was at a loss lust what to say.
"Is that all?" he pleaded. "What
have I done that yon are not going to
wish me a safe return?"
"I do, though," Margery said.
"Well, that helps." Bates said lame

He was so near and his very near
ness made her deliriously happy.
Bates saw the others returning from
their search for him and his last
chance slipping away. . His determina
tion to never again speak to Margery
or love took flight and he began another
hasty plea. When she showed no sign
of even interrupting him he told it all
over again and begged that she would
not send him away without at least
one word of encouragement
"I've been fighting so hard to make
myself believe I didn't care but It
wont do, Margery. It's so hard to go
away from you, dear, and but here I
am saying the Whole blooming thing
over again." .
"Well, don't you mean It?" Margery
"Mean it? Mean It little girl? I
mean It so much that I"
"You awful man," chimed in one of
the girls as the poet crowd came up,
"the train's about to go and we haven't

I've been busy.
How busy?" asked one of the party
and everybody looked at Margery.
"You'd better get aboard, Bates," said
young Somen, one of the officers left
behind. "She's about to go. Take
care of yourself, old man. and don't
