The woman never lived who put as
much faith in her husband as she
puts In the holding qualities of a step
With a pail of hot soapy suds in
one hand, a scrubbing brush in the
other, and grim determination to
conquer a fleck of dust on the picture
moulding, she will cllmh to the top
step of a ladder as wabbly and in
firm and treacherous as the more
talked of ladder by which one reaches
social distinction or fame.
Neither did any woman ever own
a step-ladder that hadn't the spread
ing qualities of a hen. A step-ladder
belonging to a nmn has a greater
stability than its owner; one belong
ing to a woman shows its utter dis
regard of her by falling apart the day
after she buys it.
Neither does any woman ever own
a step-ladder if there lives a neigh
bor within ten blocks who has one to
lend. Mrs. Lysander John Appleton
has kept house thirty years and never
owned a stepladder; she always bor
rows from her Most Tntlmate Friend.
As a result of the blind faith every
woman puts In a step-ladder, Mrs.
Appleton has brought suit against
her Most Intimate Friend for $50,000
With her arms and legs done in
plaster casts, and a bandage tied

Having performed this sacred rite
of friendship he regained the center of
the room, looked about him as if curi

grand piano, upon which he placed his
elbow with a nestling search for com
fort which seemed to indicate a firm
decision to lean against the instrument
and go to sleep without delay. This
would never do, for when his slumber
became deep he would be sure to lose
his balance. Rankin saw the deep ne
cessity for rousing him from his inten
tion. i
"Mr. Jones, Mr. Jones," he urged,
tapping him upon the shoulder.
Jackson looked up, sleepily, as if as
tonished at the Interruption of his
slumbers. "Hello," he said good na
turedly, "who's there?"
I 'lt s Rankin, air," said Rankin. '
"Who's "Rankin, sir?'" The tone waa
that of tolerant curiosity to learn a to
tal stranger's unimportant identity.
"I'm the butler, sir."
I "Butler?"

This seemed to rouse his master and

tones of deep reproach. "Aren't you

[across one eye, giving her the ap
pearance of wlnVing the other, she
relates the following grounds for
"For thirty years 1 have borrowed
a. step-ladder from my Most Inti
mate Friend, and though 1 broke it
the first time I borrowed it, she liaa
never apologized to nie for having
such a poor ladder to lend.
"It was so rickety when I borrowed
'it last Spring that I had to hold on
with my hands and wash the windows
with my feet. 1 have had to use it
six years upside down, and last month
when I borrowed it to stand on to
reach my preserves I found the only
way 1 could cllmp it was by'balancing
myself on my head. I have had to
become a contortionist; I have been
deluged with jam and hot suds, and
have been the target of dlshpana and
bars of soap and scrubbing brushes
thrown at me by the top round; but
I remembered that Friendship Is a
Priceless Pearl, and never complained.
"Yesterday, when I was on the top
round, the ladder spread without pre
liminary warning and landed me in
a jar of apple butter. Then I deter
mined to bring suit for damages, and
1 have decided further than that—un
less this woman gets a new step
ladder to lend, we will drive her from
the neighborhood."
hopes of you—thought yon were going
to be president of the United States,
or something like that."
Rankin bowed Impassively; he did
not deny it
"Now," said his employer with the
deepest of reproach, you've disappoint
ed everybody. You've turned out to be
nothing but a butler. You ought to be
ashamed ol yourself!"
Rankin was not offended; Instead
his air was that of triumph. "Ah, but
see who's butler I am, sir!" he ex
"Who's butler are you?" inquired
Broadway, apparently with idlest curi
"I'm your butler, sir."
"Oh, you're my butler?" This seemed
not to be especially astonishing,
though deeply interesting to the mas
ter of the house.
'Tes. sir."
Broadway looked at him with a glad
emile, then with an earnest and enthu
siastic gravity. He warmly shook his
hand. "I congratulate you, Rankin.
I'm very fond of my butler." His sen
timent rose higher and he patted Ran
kin on the cheek. "I love my little but
ler. You must come out with me some
night, Rankin."
"I should like to. sir," said Rankin
Broadway became gay, mysterious.
He looked at Rankin slyly and himself
essayed to whistle some bars of the
wedding march. "I know something
you don't know," he cried irrelevantly.
Rankin listened with respect and
close attention. His curiosity was al
most painful.
But his master did not satisfy it.
"Now I'll bid you good-night, Rankin.
Nightie, nightie!" Genially he waved
his hand at him, laughed, whistled an
other bar or two and elaborately made
the starboard tack toward the door of
hla bedroom.
Rankin made no protest; he knew
better. "When do you wish to be
called, sir?"
"Oh, that's so, I must be called," his
master granted after a second's deep
and serious thought. Then, in a deep
study; "Now, let me see—when do I
wish to be called? What day Is it,
"It's Thursday, sir."
"Thursday? Well, I tell you what
you do, Rankin. You call me on Sat
After this entirely unexpected sug
gestion to the little butler whom he
loved, he found a devious course Into
his bedroom and Rankin, after he had
watched the door close, he^rd the key
turn in the lock. He sank into a chair,
even his composure utterly destroyed.!
In the distance a church-clock
chimed. Rankin counted the slow
strokes. "Five o'clock in the morn
ing!" he said helplessly. y/
Wallace was a mid-morning visitor.
He came In briskly, inquiring of the
very much puzzled butler for the very
elegant apartment's* master.
"He's not yet up, sir."
This apparently had not the least de
terrent efTect on the young caller. He
Urged his firm athletic frame through
the short hal! into the dim illumina
tion of the flat's reception room. It
■was evident enrugh that he had no In
tention of departing, simply because
the master of the house had not yet
risen. Rankin understood that and did
not gainsay him. Wallace had his
privileges as the best friend of the ten
ant of the flat.
"Shall I tell him you are here?"
"Tea," said Wallace firmly, "and tell
him that I want to see him right away.
It's very important. Do you under
stand ?"
Rankin had already read the morn
ing's papers which were lying In a
neat pile on the table. He longed for
fuller news than theirs.
"Yes, sir." But he hesitated slight
ly. Broadway was an indulgent mas
ter—still, strange things were happen
ing; he was doubtful. "He said ha
: didn't wish to be disturbed till Satur
day, sir."
Wallace was not Impressed. "Thai
doesn't make any difference. You tell
him I want to see him."
"Yes, sir." But the perfect servant
still hesitated, filled with curiosity
about the previous night. Wallace
might enlighten him. "He didn't get
Dome until five o'clock this morning.
He attended some big dinner-party, 1
'Tes; I was there —I was there! Go
on and call him! Tell him lam wait
ing. I'm going to have a heart to heart
talk with that young man."
"Yea, sir," said the butler without
hastening, for he saw that Wallace
had picked up a paper from the neat
pile he had made of all of them npon
the table.
"Great Scott!" Wallace cried, dis
mayed. "Here it is on the front pageT"
"I beg pardon, Mr. Wallace, but is It
all true, sir?"
"The story in the morning papers,
sir, about—er—his engagement?"
"1 don't know. Someone rang me trp
and told me of it. It's what brought
me here. I want to find out if it's
true. I left the dinner at 12:30. The
engagement, I am told, was announced
shortly after I had left. Were you up
when he got home this morning?"
"Yes, sir."
"Did he talk of it at all?"
"He—couldn't talk so; very mnch,
"Tipsy V
Rankin nodded very solemnly.
"Stewed, sir."
"Did he come home alone?"
"He came In here alone, but a crowd
was serenading him upon the sidewalk
for ten minutes after he arrived. It
was the wedding march they tried to
sing. I couldn't understand why they
chose that until I read the morning's
papers, sir."
"Well, what do you think of It, Ran
Rankin shrugged his shoulders, but
did not reply. His instinctive loyalty
to his employer, his perfect knowledge
of his own proprieties prevented that.
"Oh, come on," Wallace urged. "You
can tell me. Just between us now."
