The Trials and Tribulations of the Shy Man
The shy tnnn, like the Italy woman, hits
pretty poor time of It In thin hard.

overlooked at parties mid toclnl gather

III at case that one feels really Borry for
him, although nt the samo time one
Withes that he wouldn't be quite so awk
ward, quite so gauche, for hla nervous
ness 1 communicable, and wo ourselves
begin to feel "Jumpv" in hla presence.
It Is n very true furt that people do
take Us sit our own valuation. Nothing
sticcceds like success, and If wo nBsunie
a Buccesful, prosperous manner and calm,
cany demeanor, then pcoplo ure going to
grant us a certain measure of attention
and respect. While at the same time wo
may rest assured that If we aio hcrvo"

Just an surely going to bo overlooked and
In human relationship o much depends
Upon the character of the Individual. It
literally does not do to follow out the In
junction; "You In your miiiiII eorper and
1 In mllio." If we retire Into that selfsame
small comer, rest nssured Hint we will get
leave to stay there. For nobody Is so im
portant nss to be Indispensable to the rest
cf humanity.
If the fhy mnn has a pretty poor time
of It, then what about I be why lover? For
the shy man generally lins some secret
attachment hidden away In his bashful
breast his very shyness makes him turn
from an uuappreclatlve world to some
maiden In whom he se the crowning
perfection of womanhood and feminine
I3ut ho hasn't the heart to tell her so!
No, Indeed, he Is much too shy. Ills very
ears grow hot at her itppronch, bis heart
thumps In unplcnbant palpitations agaln-M
his waistcoat and ho wishes that the
earth would open up and swallow him
and Ills confusion together. He curses
himself for a tool but he Is powerless to
control his awkwaiduess. Yes, It Is al
together very disconcerting and confus
ing, this boshfulucsB of Ills.
But all the same It is seldom the bold
est wooer who makes the best husband.
The llonheartcd man who is so uttcrb
charming ami whoso love-making leaves
nothing under the sun or moon or stars
It had been rubbing It In to ask Did;
Fitzgerald to act as one of tho ushers at
the Craven-Mountford wedding. Dick bud
been In love with Audrey Craven long
before Sir Henry Mountford bail come
, across t'ne water In Bcatcb of a bride
and a bunk accoutjt.
Mrs. Craven bad shrewdly argued that
with Dick acting as one of the ushers
sho would put a stop to the last shred
of gossip. For several years their friends
bad looked for tho announcement of
Dick's engagement to Audrey, und tho
new turn of affairs had not met with
popular approval. If Dick was un usher
he tnlglit seem to give countenance to
the alliance.
No ono blamed Audrey for the engage
ment. Mrs. Craven, hud she been a niHti,
would have achieved credit ns u ward
boss. In her feminine Brmoro sho hec
tored her family, the charitable societies
of which she was Invariably t'no presi
dent, and oven the rector of St. Jude'.s
recognized God. Mrs. Craven and the
bishop In that order.
When Sir Henry was giaclously pleased
to accept Mrs Craven's diplomatic over
tures their set had regarded Dick's fate
ns sealed and, with a murmured "Pour
Audrey," gave their utlentlon to other
affairs. Tho announcement that Dick whs
to be one of tho ushers brought forth an
additional "Poor Dick," but he rather
enjoyed his duties, as, standing on tho
steps of St. Judo's, ho explained to the
wedding guests that the service was post
poned owing to tho absence of Miss
"Wo only know what word was sent
up from the house," he assured Mrs. Pon
dera. "Miss Craven went out to visit
Nell Testra last night. Sho left so eaily
that no escort seemed necessary, but she
did not return home. No one knows
what happened. Mrs, Craven Is prostra
ted. Sir Henry? I understand he is tak
ing It very badly,"
ile bowed her away and turned to the
next comer. There had been no time to
recall the Invitations, and the six ushers
were too busy to give more than passing
Attention to any one person.
Sir Henry waa taking It very badly In
deed. He waa storming up and down
the long hall of the Craven home, and
between disappointment and wounded
prlda the floodgates of speech were
opened and his language would have done
credit to a stable boy,
Mrs. Craven shut herself Into (he li
brary long before ho had concluded his
remarks, and the stolid butler, aided by
tha coachman, ejected Sir Henry from
the house, tothe huge delight of tho re
porters who had vainly besieged the from
door for the last hour or so.
Then Mrs. Craven took lo her bed nnd
vowed that daughter of hers should never
marry into the Urltlsh nobility, while
Carver Craven hurried down to the po
Ure station to ask that a general alarm
be sent out.
Nothing came of this action, and, after
a couple of days, the papers dropped the
sensation. Dick was distracted. Two days
before the ceremony Audrey had as
sured him that things would turn out all
right and had told him not to worry, but
her long silence argued that she had
not been able to make things go at sho
had planned, and that she had killed her
self rather than marry a man she did
not love.
In the hope of distracting his mind the
senior Fitzgerald Intrusted him with a
commission In Chicago, und Disk, glad1
to get away tor a tew uays, tooK. tns
train, after exacting a proinUe that ha
should be Informed by wire of any de
velopment. The trip, seemed Interminable, but at
last he reached town tod established
iiinwelf at a hotel He could not the
--people ho wumd until the following
itionitng. and to dispel hla louaUns he
hunted up Jim Dalton.
Dalton and he had bean chunw ly the
cotless days before Daltoo had gftne
Wtwt to study nidieln. He waa Interne
iu one of the hospitals now, and after
dinner Dick and he went out.

Inadvertently hear about some of his pnst

the world. Once, and onco only In n
lifetime could he ever hnvo overcome
that dTnclfut brisbrulnesj of his in order
to tell a girl that sho was the ono woman
on earth for him.
The girl who has a bashful lover should
oeafo lamenting the Inconveniences of the
situation and thank Providence for him.
For be will be very, very fnlthrul. No
need for benrt-burnings, no cause for

Dick smiled. "It must bo pleasant to
forget everything sometimes." he suld.
"Yuu couldn't inoculate me, could you?"
"I never knew that It was Infectious,"
said Dalton. "Still, yuu might try It In
tho Interest of science. She usually comes
In for u chat III the evening. Sho likes
to talk nboiit her cose. She knows as
much about t lie disease as I do."
He rang the bell and a trim nui-M) ap
peared. "Will .vim usk Miss Smith to

f.ald, and lie turned to Dick.
"I'll have In Introduce jou as a re
porter," he raid. "She's not llko the
avcrngo charity patient lu n clinic, you
know. It's evident that sho Is gently
bred and she might resent being on ex
hibition." Dick nodded, but when the door opened
to admit tho patient he scandalised the
p'n3lcinn by Jumping up nnd clasping
the glil In his arms.
To Dalton's fuither amazement tho
patient did not appear to resent the
caress, and It was not until he stood be
side them that they uppcured to remem
ber bis presence. Then they separated,
tho girl blushing u rosy red.
"Tho sight of Mr. Fitzgerald has re
called me," sho said In explanation. "I
am Audrey Audrey Craven, am I not?"
she asked. Dick nodded. i
"I remember now," she went on. "I
was to be married to Sir Henry. Where
Is Sir Henry, Dick 7"
"Home," suld Fitzgerald, beamingly.
"Sailed tho other day. He was kicked

angry than worried; angry that the heU

view) was spoiled.
"She Is t:ry anxious, '' lie admitted.
"She thought ou were a runaway. The

"and here I nus all the time trying to

Dalton produced a Mack of press dip

to make a scrap book," be explained, "I
suppose Miss Carver will want to take
them home now."
"If sou could sparo them," sho said
sweetly. "I should love to have them,"
"And I'll telegraph your mother," went
on tha phjtdcian. "What is the address?
It's funny that you woio a friend of

Dalton, scanting a romance, seconded

visiting a patient, read the marriage

with Dalton and the head nurse acting

The following evening they aat In the

"It was very nice of mother to take It

"How could the do otherwise when

One Type of Girl
"There Is u certain type of girl with
whom I come In contact n great deal."
mid the principal of n largo girls' school
tho other day, "and for want of a better
name I call her the sochil grafter. Of
course, many of these gills don't con
sider themsrlves In this light at all, but
they are grafters of thn deepest dc.
"In the tlrst plncc, when they come
to school they look ntoiind until they
find a girl with money. Thin Isn't haul,
as the fashionable schools usually have
thn daughters of rich cnttle owners from
the weit, nnd rich Spanish gills who
want to learn Ihigllsh. and many other
types of wealthy girls. The social grafter
immediately makes it friend of one of
"Why, lust lerently I had a very weal

"A great mnny of these girls arrange
their cainpn'gn with mi eye to their

nnd candy ad lib., always the best seats
at tho theatre, and meals at a chic cafe,
whero everything is Just twice ns expen

It is naturally a man's pleasure and
prlvilego to "pay the piper" when out
with n girl, but very few young fellows
can afford to bo as generous as their In
clination,. Knowing this, any nlce-mlnded girl
takes ery eootl care that the "tune Bhe

A man Is quick to appieclate the nice
feeling which prompts a gill, of her own
accord, to suggest a modest entertain
ment and an inexpensive meal; an ap
preciation which grows Into something
deeper as he realizes his need of Just such
a helpmate "for better, for worse, In sick
ness and Iu health."
On tho other hand, a girl who has such
rriiud Ideas that sho simply can't do
things "on tho cheap" proves too expen
sive a luxury for the average young man.
Sooner or later ho comes to tho conclu
sion that, as he Is already spending too
much, u wife Is n luxury ho could cer

So, mistaking the drosa for tho gold, the
girl loses his friendship and with It all
chances of wearing his ring.

IMeasinjr Decorations
For it small party In one's own home It
Is easy enough to decorato prettily, but
it Is a much mora dilltcult matter to
gho a big, bare schoolroom or hall a
lenity festive appearance. Ono of tho
nlcM ways of doing It is to mnko a
thicket in the mlddlo of the room If It
Is a large one, or against tho wall at one
end If space Is precious.
Begin by laying u pleco of old oilcloth
on tho floor, then edgo it all around
with a beading of wood bccured to the
oilcloth with putty. Flat blind btlcks
mnko nn excellent beading, but wiiatevcr
wood Is used must bo painted green.
Next you will want n number of
branches of trees, not too thick and
heavy, which must bo tied or nailed to
gether, so as to form a kind of cage over
tho foundation. I.cavo plenty of small
gaps between tho branches and let tho
highest part of the cage bo In the cenlro
for a mlddlo decoration, or nt tho back
for a wall one.
Tho next step is to throw some thin
muslin or an old sheet right over the
cage. Color It cither brown or green with
a dyo tint. Pour this dye gently all over
the sheet before It has time to settle,
taking care that every part of the cage
is wet. A llttlo Band sprinkled over tho
oilcloth will ubsorb nny moisture that
runs through.
Tho next day when, the dye has dried,
your erection will look Just llko a. "rock
cry." for the sheet will dry In a stiff and
qulto "rocky" manner and tho gaps will
havo tho appearance of cavities In the
rocks. Fill all these spaces with llttlo
ferns, covering tho tell-tale spots care
fully with moss, and you will have tho
most charming of decorations to delight
tho children's eyes.
I caught my love reclining.

As she lay there n-drcatnlng,
Had Cupid crept u-nenr.

and cuffs of geranium red, nnd a plaid
belt that hung in n depressed wny around
Kllecn'a nonc-too-slcnder waist.
"Please, don't!" I murmured weakly,
