"What dues the lad/ look Ilka?" da
minded Humphries.
Cultun rvgardnd bin coolly,
"I don't think that there will be mare

for transportation to tlie Twin Hearts,"
Mid Bumptirla*' employer. "Even yvur

that fact"
Raiaphrtaa hIM and tvirued away.
Oartts Ositoa, owner of the Twlu
Hearts, waa peculiar. Above all, lie
wanted men about him who could car
ry out brief order* without demanding
aa elaborate amplification of the same.
Humphries had supposed that la this
case the question was justifiable, but If
Oottna thought otherwise he had no
comment te make
He went down ta the corral and
hitched the blacks to the buckboard,
one or two of hli fallows lounging over
ta see what waa up
"Qoln' to town. Humpy?" demanded
Ran Tyler, lighting a fresh cigarette.
"No," eald llnmphrlea, with asperity,
'l'm golu' to drive orsr to China te
hlra a new oook. What makaa you
think I waa golu' to town?'*
Tyler grinned amiably.
"Tou'd think he was the old man If
yaa could hear him talk with your
area shut." be commeuted musingly te
Bock Byers. "By the wsy, 1 wish
yaa'fl stop oa the way b*ek and bring
Wt some makings."
He tossed a silver dollar to Hum
phries as that worthy climbed Into the
saat and started the team. HV-npbrle*
pocketed the coin, with s grunt, aud
devoted himself to his thoughts.
That something was doing up at the
big house was rlearl.v apparent. Th*
minister from Silver Forks had driven
ever that morning, and new he was
sent to Brsylsys for n young woman,
with orders ta return her to Ibe ranch
with all spaad. He grinned as be ob
served the brand on the flanks of the
MacU, the twin hearts from which the
ranch took its naine
"Ought to put a cupld's . arrow
through 'em," he told the blacks. "Then
you'd look Ilka valentines Wonder
who It la goln' te get hitched?"
■a ran through the list of probables,
hut mn id not decide until the Overland
paused st the little flag station to de
poelt a young weman and a trunk. A*
the girl raised her veil flumplirlei
sprang forward
"Miss Bess." h* cried, a note of real
waleoia* In his voles. "I've got th«
hnck board here."
■a held bar bsud an Instant lu greet

Iliad the seat before helping her In.
The year before he had bfen working
OB the Circle I.\ when lies* Psrley had
oome to spend the summer with her
brother, bis employer. Kreu then
there bad been talk of a marriage be
tween bar sod Colton. but the gossip
had died down, and It was supposed
that there had been a quarrel. Now
she was hare, the preacher wss here,
and there could be no doubt but that
she would bocome queen dt the Twin
■aarts as well ss the heart of every
rider on the range
Humphries engaged her la converse

llatealng with ao amiable grin to her
tales of "back east." Almost before
Ui*g knew It they bad come to the gate
of the raach laclbsure, sod Humphries

his arm.
"Wl» stop hers?" she asked. "Circle

"Circle ET" he echoed. "I thought

"I haven't seen Mr. Farley in six

"I didn't knew that you had Isft my

For a moment the girl searched tho

of the house came Humphries' rich

I Game of
I Hearts and the !:
| Rubber....
By Martha Cobb Sanlord.
| OepfrtgktW. Mxr, by C. H. SatcUffa. J;
I/*oaora was the moat fascinating
craatur* that aver breathed. Every
body admitted that. How ah* had ever
managed to g*t paet the twenties with
out yielding to the numerous alegvs
laid to bar heart was a matter of com
mon wonder. Now that the tnomentoo*
eve of her thirtieth birthday bad ar
rived Uoonora horself was wondering
abeatlt
Bbe thought of the faithful Itob and
alghod. She thought of the Impulsive
Jack and laughed outright. She thought
of the imperious Roland and lifted her
•yebrow*. They were remarkably beau
tiful eyebrows, and the eyea that look
ed frsukly Into hers out of the mirror
were liewttcblngly merry and brown.
For s few moments I.eonora brushed
her wavy hair vigorously. Then she
twined It Into a long thick braid, aald
good night and goodby to the twenty
nlne-yoar-old girl In the mirror, turned
out the light aud Jumped Into bed.
"Hotber th* whole bunchl" she mutter
ed sleepily. "I'm uever going to think
of them again "
But shs did. At least, go where ah*
weuld In her dies ma, the persistent
Rob followed her, hi* willful, admiring
•j'** fastened upon her until It seemed
ss If shs could not stsnd It a moment
longer. Then Jack would appear from
seomlngly nowhere aud without any
polite preliminaries or regard for the
curious people around them, would be
gin to tell ber how he loved her, bow
be lived but for sight of her. bow h*-
Buddenly exit Jack aud enter Holaud,
the autocrat.
"I don't like Ihe looks of that man
who wa* with you Just now, ray dear,"
was hi* ultimatum. "I don't want you
to have anything more to do with him.
Come; ws will bo married Immediately.
I won't stand any more trifling." And
then—ob, then the rain began to pour
In torreuts, and the wind blew a gale,
aud she wss all alone, and she lost her
rubber while crossing a muddy street,
and-well, aa it went on and on through
the night.
In the morning the doctor wa* called.
Leonora had a high fever and other
alarming symptoms.
"Are you subject to attacks Ilk*
these?" aakrd the young physician In
hla tno*t professional manuer.
"Never remember having bad a doc
tor before In my life," Leonorn answer
*d, a lulling feebly. Then, a flash of her
tru* mischievous self flaring up for a
momeut. *be added: "But I think I'm
going to enjoy It; You're so nmusing
ly young and serious, Dr. Torrence."
Perhaps it waa Just aa well for Leo
nora that a sharp pain In her side pre
vented her from expressing her obser
vations more freely.
When the pain had passed the doctor
rsaumsd hi* cross questioning.
"Do yon recall any way you may
hav* taken cold?" lie put the ques
tion tills time In nn almost Jocular
twia
"Tbst's better," commented I^eonora.
"Ths pain? I'm glad."
"No; I msant tho— never mind. What
waa It you asked?"
Dr. Torrence repeated the question.
"Oh, ye*. Why, I lo*t my rubber
y**t*rtl*y In the rain. Can you take
gold by wetting Just one foot?"
Tbs physlclsn refused to commit
himself. Before Leonora could get a
ehancs to push ber Inquiry she found
ber mouth effectively Btopped by a
clinical thermometer.
That evening Dr. Torrence called
again. He fouud hl* patient not quite
■o well and far less frisky.
"It's been *ucb an endless day," ahe
tolfl him, "the dreariest 1 ever knew
In my life, and It'* my birthday!"
"It flo*sn'l look dreary with all these
beautiful flowers nodding their con
gratulation*."
"Congratulations?" Leonora groaned.
"Dr. Torrence, I'm thirty years old."
Th* doctor gave vent to a hearty
laugh. ■
"Too look about *lxt*eu," he answer
*d gallantly.
L*onora fluabed faintly at the com
pliment. lifted one of her long braids
that lay over her eboulder and dropped
It again waarlly.
"lt'o an awful tragedy," *h* ln
f*rmo4 hlin. "You '* n't appreciate
it" c.
"1 thought 1 did three years ago," he
asswsrsd, ■mlllug at her gently, "bnt
l'vs found out since 1 was mistaken.
Why, you're Juet beglnnlg to llve
n; dear.''
Tho laat two words be felt at liberty
to add by virtue of his three yesr*'

ilege*
"I'*rhap* so," sighed Leonora, "only
1 fssl mors a* If I were going to die."
lodaed, for the next few daya it
looked aa though her pathetic prophecy
might prev* only too true. At ia*t,
aft*r * bard flght, the dread pneu
monia wa* conquered and the daya of
convalescence dawned, none too bright
ly, bnt surely.
Whoa Leonora cuuld at length alt
«p the light of ber tranaparent, white

aasd to pinch ber cheeks for the Joy
of ssetng the color eome beck to them.
Just l*t ber get strong again and

"Surrounded by flowers, as nsnal,"
•waa tho doctor's cheery greeting sa he
h rap pod in fori semtsocial, semtpro
f*s*lonal call one afternoon.
tliaw Mat really head his asrr-
Icea any longer,' but the doctor found I
It difficult to deaert 10 fascinating a
patient.
"Who neut them." he teaaed her—
"Tom. Dick or Harry—l mean Bob,
Jack or Holand?"
Leonora'* big brown eye* looked at
htm In nmaiement.
"How did you know about therat"
The doctor laughed a bit abeeplthly.
r "Oh. that's all you talked about when
you had the fever." • '
Lenora blushed prettily. /~\
"Yes. they sent them," she 4cknoWl
edged, "Rob and Jack nod 1 Rol/ud.
But not even the American Rea title*
give me such keen Joy as my rubber
violets."
The doctor followed her gate. From
the chandelier hung a woman'* rubber
overshoe filled with rich, fragrant vio
lets.
"It's the most romantic thing that
ever happened to me In my life," ei
clalmed Leouorn. her eyes shining with
happiness. "You see It's the rubber I
lost that rainy day before 1 was taken
111. Some man saw me drop It and has
sent It hack to me In this artistic fash
ion—anonymously, of course."
"Rather n footless procedure, It
strikes me," commented the doctor.
"For shame!" Leonora reproved.
"You're jealous!"
The doctor's face crew serious.
"Maybe I am," lie replied. I /Conors
dropped her eyos under his steady look
of admiration. "The other three were
strong enough rivals without this un
known mackintosh butting In with his
rubber plants."
Leonora 111 mod aside the doctor's
meaning lightly.
"He's the one luterest In life for m*
now." she said gsyly.
Following the advent of the vlol«t*
came lady slippers, with n fanciful lit
tle note expressing the hope that they'd
prove ss fitting an expression of the
donor's devotion as the rubbers, and
when they had fsded a grest bunch of
brilliant autumn leaves fillod their
place.
"Leonora, 1 am Jealous," annonnced
the doctor as he watched her go Into
ecstasies over the gorgeous foliage. "1
bellevo If It weren't for this aggres
sively sentimental scamp I'd stand
half a chance myself. Don't you care
for me the least little bit, LeonoraT"
The girl hesitated.
"More than a little lilt, Dr. Torrence.
But, foolish or not, all my thoughts
center around this unknown admirer.
He appeals to my Imagination more
thnu any man I ever actually knew.
I love romance. I can't help It"
"Well, then," said the doctor decisive-
"the sooner he's discovered and
laid low the better., I'm going to hunt
him down If It takes a month of Sun
day* and present him to you, llttl*
Miss Romance."
In less than a week word came from
the doctor that he would call on a cer-
I tain afternoon, with Leonora'* consent,
ntid bring "Mr. Mackintosh" with him.
With feverish anticipation Leonora
waited the culmlnntlon of her ro
mance. On the stated afternoon she
dressed herself 111 her most becoming
frock and tucked some of the violets
that had come that very morning Into
her belt.
The liell rang. Her heart beat furl
oußly. Sl)e was half joyous, half
1 afrnlij.
The doctor entered her sitting room
alone.
"Wouldn't he come?" faltered Leo
iiorn.
"He wunts time to have a little talk
Willi you first, First, he's ask
ed me to tell you a bit what he's like,
and then If you don't want to see him
 you needn't. I'm going to be Just as
frank mid- fair about him as I know
how. He Isn't handsome—ln fact, 1
! think he's about as near homely us
they nuike 'em—and he's conceited—
awfully conceited. He Isn't rich cither
—makes just a fair living, though be
hopes to do better some day. He's
pretty fond of Ills own way, I've dis
covered, but you could manage him
without doubt. He's"—
"He's everything you sny he Isn't,"
Interrupted Leonora "He's handsoma
and modest land unaeUlsti and—and
iinywsy, money Isn't everything."
"Why, Leonora!" stammered the doc
tor, utterly taken back by her burst of
passionate defense.
"And 1 know something else about
him too. I found It out today. Ills
handwriting Is always the same funny
boylHh Brian-1 whether It's on a pre
scription or in a note sent with lady
slippers."
The doctor's face was radiant
"Leonora," he cried, "yon do lov« m*
—tbero In no rival?"
"No, dear; none. You've won the
rub*)®? even If you did Juggle the card*
o bit I acknowledge my defeat"
And then the man who was "pretty
fond of his own way" Insisted on tak
ing thirty kisses—and on* more to
grow on.
