Tale of LoVe That Happened in the Loveliest Land

A fine, broad-shouldered lad stirred In

passed It to him. He mnde an awkward

out to the aisle. The faintest breath of
amusement came from the pew behind.
He crimsoned, and his cars grew redder
The service closed, and on the purple
moor outside the church the congrega

"Young Benderloch, of Beauty, has been
Brought home, badly wounded!" said one
larmer to another. "He's a lieutenant In
the Black Watch and a great lad for the
Sighting. They had to drive him seven
miles from Invcrgarry Station In a mo

nd he looked like death!"
"Lochlnver's daughter has come back
tfrom school In France." another said.
See, here she comes! It is a. beauty
that she Is! Her father Is the hardest

The fine, broad-shouldered boy stood
"with his mother, and she called him to

the little pony cart and drove her home.
The eyes of pretty Morag followed him.

In the glen. Down where the River Gar

"It's lonely that I am upon the Dhu

her soft Highland accent that no sojourn
In the land of France could change, "i
wish I could have stayed In dear gay
Paris, for I'm tired of this quiet place."
She looked so lovely that the simple

"I hear that Benderloch Is home," said
he. "He Is the handsomest lad that I

"Oh, Morag, would you run nuay with
me?" he cried breathlessly, "lou know

She laughed and pouted, with the tears
still on her cheek. "You slt boy." she
cried; "why, that would never do! Later

The girl's eyes flashed. "He's planned
to m.irr) me to this rich man's son within
three das!" she cried.
lito that night the lad, the ladder and
the lantern were beneath her window.
The glrh descended, and they walked for
miles upon the moor.
Only when dawn came In they reached
the cottage. She bade him leave her there
nnd come back In the afternoon. Her
spirits were not quite as high now as
"Morag, I want to marry you," he said
again that afternoon. "Plenre tell me If
ou care for mo at all?"
"I have nlwas liked you and been fond
of you since we were children together at

"My dear," said oung Alastalr, "I
think thnt Benderloch was only too will

could help loving you? In Invergarry they
are salng he has always cared for you
and he is rich'"
The pretty Morng failed to note the
great effort that these words had cost
the lad. "I suppose that young Bender
loch will be crazy to get back to the front
again!" she said. "Why did jou stay at
home, I wonder?"
"I wanted to go as much as he, but I
had other claims at home," the lad re
plied, a note of pain In his voice. "Young
Benderloch Is In the regular army, while
I am only a farmer!"
The girl looked up and heard the new
hurt note. "I think I care a little bit for
you, Alastalr," she said.
"Hcio Is a fprlg of white heather I
have found," said he. "When I come
back this evening will you wear It on
your heart? Then I will know you really
care for me!"
The girl laughed gaily and the lad
walked home across the rolling moors,
with hope and happiness to bear him
When evening came he sought the lit

and desolate. Where was tlie lovely
laughing face that he had hoped to find?

He lit a match and on the floor he
found a note. With trembling hands he
opened it and read:
"Today young Benderloch came here for
me. I find that I care for him. after all,
and so we have gone off to get married!
Please forgive me and forget'"
The lad smiled a slow, bitter smile.
"And I had thought that she would wear
my heather at her heart!" he said.

The "Temperament" Excuse
Sometimes you hear of an excuse for
faults- "It is my temperament." There
never was a temperament that had not
Its good as well as Its evil possibilities.
The truth Is that we Inherit our tem
perament with Its natural perversions,
and it Is our business in life to shake
off the perversions, in order that we
may do the best work we can. If all
who have excused themselves for self
ishness and evil because of their "tem
perament" had recognized that they
were really excusing the perversions of
their temperament, and not the tempera
ment Itself, much needless pain and sor
row might have been avoided.

Women are sometimes tempted to see

better to wear clothes that are too com

It goes as a matter of course that they
should be made of as good material as
the purse will allow, and that they should

Marrying a Shy Man
Ciliis sometimes despise the shy man,
because It occurs to them that he Is n
physical coward. And women, no mat
ter whnt their stntlon In life, their edu

mously, and ns a sex. abhor the man
who Is a coward. But shyness Is tlu
outcome of nn overwhelming sense of
one's own Inferiority.
There hive been big men who, when
Intmduced to a little girl in a ballroom,
have flushed scarlet under their tan,
and have shifted from foot to foot like
overgrown schoolboys. When a shy man
wins a glrl'3 affection he really thinks
he Is tho luckiest man on earth. Of

men only say they think it. Therefore,

wash in plenty of warm water and soap,
rinse well several times, and without

With the fashionable brilliant tints In

of producing a faint, pretty color Is by
dashing cold water on the face fre
quently. Another method is to rub a small piece
of Ice over the face. This has the added
advantage of closing the pores and mak
ing the flesh firmer.
A physician said once that If a woman
who wanted color In her cheeks would

quickly gain the desired coloring.

This will save chapping and wrinkle.
When choosing a cream consider tho
nntuie of your skin. If It Is at all dry,
do not use a cream with peroxide In It.
If. however, the skin Is Inclined to be
oily, get one with ns little grease In It
A llttlo bornclc acid dusted over tho
face after using the cream takes away
the oily look. Creams scented with a

they bleach the skin, and do away with

American Worry Habit
Ban to Beauty
"American women worry too much,"
says Maude Leslie, one of the beauties
of tho English stage, who Is now
playing In Philadelphia. Miss Lj8
Is a vory much- photographed joung
woman, particularly In her native Lon
don, where her pictures nre displayed
among those of tho Kings nnd Queans
and fighting generals that adorn tho
shop windows of the Strand. "Almatt
any woman can be beautiful," declares
this actress, "not straight featured per
haps, nor possessed of nil the attribute!
which go lo tho composition of b"auly
In tho most literal nnd, I may add, th
most commonplace acceptanco of ths
term; but beauty In Its real significance.
Tho greatest mistake mado by American
womon Is their habit of worrying, and
worrying about trllles.
"The American mnn gives hi entire life,
time In working to prevent the women
of his family from worrying yet they
do worry constantly. It Is a matter of
national temperament, I suppose We
English women nre naturally placid, nnd
placidity is worth cultivating, don't you
think? The worrying woman Is never
beautiful. The pernicious habit stamps
Itself Indelibly upon her features and ex
pression. Fine lines about the eyes and
deep Indentures nt the sides of tho mouth
cause her to look oldT thnn she 13 and
give a dlsagtceable sag to her muscles
I wish I could Impress upon every woman
In whom the healthful desire to ho beau
tiful still survives the urgent necessity
for overcoming the worry habit. Once
kill this ogre of the mind nnd he. as
well as his Hordo of Ills, will never be
able to resurrect themselves. It can be
done, too, hut It requhes mental disci
pline. If one has nn earnest desire to
overcome the habit, It Is well to begin
with the very first trivial worry of daily
