yachting' party would
4j?'' fcv. prove a success was a
foregone conclusion.
gjV'mgm Miss Delamore was her
self a success, and all
her undertakings bore
the imprint of her con
vVJ quering personality.
Those honored by her invitations were
in the habit of accepting promptly,
while those not so fortunate were prop
erly envious and cast down. Accord
ingly, when for this particular occa
sion she received regrets, and those,
too, from Kitty Crawford, on whom
she had principally relied for the en
tertainment of her guests. Miss De'ia
more simply set her lips together with
Napoleonic firmness and drove at once
to Kitty's home to inquire into the
She found the young lady in the gar
den, languidly occupying a hammock,
and attired In a negiigee frown which
the male observer would have thought
enchanting, but which Miss Delamore
was too absorbed to notice.
"As for your not going, my dear,"
Bhe said, plunging into the conversa
tion with her usual impetuosity, ' that'e
all nonsense, you know. It's got to be
arranged somehow. I've depended on
having you sing, and, besides, the
yacht is a perfect dream now that it
has been refitted. What's the mattor,
anyway, Kitty?" As she hurled this
question at her friend she l>ent upon
her a controlling gaze such as the hyp
notist fixes on his prospective victim.
But the other girl was as shrewd as
She and as self-possessed. "Oh, I don't
know, Lou," she answered, with a care
lessness that was almost too elaborate.
''l'm rather used up, and, besides, the
sea breeze burns one to a crisp, espe
cially the nose. And, considering the
tilt of mine, you know, I can't be too
careful about giving it undue promi
''What absurdity—from Kitty Craw
ford!" thought Miss Delamore; but she
only said: "Nonsense! Wear a veil.
ym going to have the joliiest sort of a
prowd, Kitty. I want you to meet
Miss Huntington, of Baltimore; she's
rsally distractingly pretty. And Mr.
Jack Walford —let's see. Do you know
Miss Crawford, lowering her inscru
table lids, admitted having met the
gentleman in question at her uncle's
Seaside residence. She neglected to
add, however, that they had immedi
ately and mutually fallen in love, a
State of affairs culminating in an en
gagement after six weeks' acquaint
ance, and that just a month before
this very morning they had quarreled
irretrievably and parted forever. Nor
did she mention that in breaking this
brief engagement she had come as
near to breaking her heart as a well
conducted nineteenth century girl ever
comes to so ill-advised a proceeding.
Not being given to indiscriminate con
fidences Kitty referred to none of
these things, but their recollection
may account for her saying, in a very
languid voice, just as her friend rose to
go: "Don't expect me to-morrow, Lou;
but if the day is lovely, and I happen
to feel just like it, I may come."
Whereupon Miss Delamore, interpret
ing the remark as an unconditional
surrender, kissed her enthusiastically,
and went away in triumph.
But when Kitty came on board the
yacht next morning there was not in
her manner the faintest trace of list
lessness or lauguor. In her blue yacht
ing suit, with a jaunty sailor hat
perched carefully on one side, she was
the very embodiment of girlish anima
tion. Iler advent was hailed with an
enthusiasm universal, except in the
case of one young man, who exclaimed,
under his breath: "The devil! She
here?" and walked to the other side of
the yacht to recover his composure.
For Jack Walford was still young
enough to believe that love is eternal,
and, though he had no intention of
making any unmanly fuss over the
matter, he knew very well that his
heart had l>een irremediably broken
t>y the cruelty of this coquette in blue,
now lavishing her dangerous smiles on
all comers.
Jack looked out over the calm water
and thought of the evening just u
month before, when he and she had
walked together under the sighing
branches of the pines and the sea
breeze had ruffled the bewitching little
Curls around her forehead. The poor
boy choked to remember the trifle
"light as air" which had been the
causo of their quarrel, and vainly tried
to console himself with the reflection
that if Kitty had evei really loved him
she'could not have made those savage
speeches which had cut him to the
heart! One recollection, however,
gave Jack a melancholy comfort.
When Miss Crawford had drawn from
her finger the ring which he had placed
there with so much love and pride a
few short weeks before, Jack had re
ceived the little token without a word,
and, turning on his heel, had hurled it
into the dancing waves. Then, with
out a single backward glance, he had
walked away, and by this course of
Conduct Jack thoflght, perhaps not un
reasonably, that he had properly sus
tained the dignity of a much-injured
And now, though he had been taken
by surprise and compelled to beat a
temporary retreat. Jack, who was grit
to his linger ends, had no intention of
surrendering without a blow. After
fifteen minutes of reflection he found
himself able to approach Kitty and
greet her with a careless cordiality; j
and then immediately devoted himself
to making tlio acquaintance of Miss
Huntington, who was almost as pretty j
as her enthusiastic hostess had de- ,
clared. And so the moruing passed un
eventfully, and fhe afternoon was well j
advanced, when Miss Delamore called j
upon Kitty to sing.
Kitty responded with the readiness
which was one of her charms. She
brought her guitar from the cabin,
took her seat conveniently near the 1
spot where Jack was carrying on a
very fair imitation of a flirtation with
Miss Huntinirton, and without preface
or apology Iwgan one of the favorite
ballads of the day.
Kitty's voice was like herself, piquant
and sweet and full of charming sur
prises. She sang snatches of operas,
rollicking college songs, and now and
then on • of those tender, plaintive lit
tle airs that compel neither smiles nor
tears, but in some unaccountable way
reach the heart. And her audience
applauded hungrily and would not be
satisfied till at last she said, with a
l#: : f||r
•/ J\
pretty air of determination: "This is
positively the last." As she spoke she
looked full at Jack, and for the first
time that day their eyes met.
She turned away her head and a
beautiful color burned in lier cheeks
as she struck a vibrating chord on the
guitar. There was in her voice, too, a
tremulousness which caught the atten
tion of the listeners almost from the
first word.
We wandered ni tlie shadow of tUa piues, my
love and L
In spite of himself Jack writhed on
his chair. The memories of one event
ful night grew vivid at those words.
Again he seemed to hear the weird
music of the rustling piues, and the
face of the linger grew misty before
his blurring eyes. It would have been
more delicate iu Kitty, the poor fellow
reflected savagely, to select a song
without such allusions. But like all
else in this day of torture it must bo
endured; and Jack brace 1 himself to
We wandered In the shadow of tho pines, my
love and I,
As the wind was blowing freshly from the
But a sudden, fitful darhnes« stole across the
i summer sky,
And a shadow came between my love and me.
Some hasty words were spoken and then al
most unawares
Hasty answers to unthinking auser led,
And our heart-sick, bitter longing, and our
weeping, and our prayers
Ne'er can make those false and cruel words

The young man wipeil the drops of
• perspiration from his forehead. lie
! was pale to the lips, and the girl from
| Baltimore noticed it and asked hi,a
confidentially if he were seasick.
Jack did not answer. In fact he did
not even hear. For now into Kitty's
voice there had come a poignant note
of longing and entreaty, and her guitar,
as if responsive to her mood, sobbed
out its rippling accompaniment:
He took the ring I gave him, nor cast a glance
at me.
As he held tho jeweled trinket in his hand.
And then he turned and tossed it in the waters
of the sea,
Where the wares were splashing idly on th«
He went his way unheeding tho hot tears I
could not hido.
He went his nay and not a word was said.
But my stubborn heart was breaking under
neath its mask of pride,
And the pine trees sobbed in pity overhead.
The words were crude, the melody
simple; yet as the girl sang from her
heart she somehow touched those di
vinest of life's harmonies, which are
the inspiration of all the arts. And
more than one of the listeners found
their eyes suspiciously moist, though
perhaps they themselves would have
been puzzled to tell why.
I wake from i»! tor 'hramlns but to call aloud
your name;
I sleep again to dream of you once more.
And my stubborn pride has left mc—l admit
I was to blame;
Forgive me. dear, and love me as before
For the future Is o'crshadowed with the
darkness of despair.
In the sky of life love's sun no longer shines
And I'd give the whole world gladly, once
again to meet you there,
Reunited In the shadow of tho pines.
The song closed abruptly, and Kitty,
leaving her seat somewhat hurriedly,
turned her back upon her .-.till clamor
ous audience. Jack followed, and as
they stood in a sheltered nook together,
his shoulder close pressed to hers, he
saw that her delicate lips were quiver
"Kitty," said the young man, his
voice thick with love's sublime intox
ication, "can you ever forgive me?"
She turned her brimming eyes upon
him. "If 1 hadn't wanted forgiveness
myself," she said, "I should never have
written that song."
Then with that indifference for ap
pearances characteristic of great souls
in moments of exaltation. Jack V issed

is some free an' various an liable to
mix him into trouble. Not that Bill is
bad; none whatever, but bein' seven or
eight drinks ahead of that Plaza
whisky makes him feel gregar'ous and
friendly; an' he's cap'ble of goin' about
a-claimin' of acquaintance with peo

"So I goes along; Bill a-warblin*

towards 'em, aimin' for a powwow—
which he docs frequent, bein' a mighty
amiable man that away—they gives
a squawk immediate an* sliets the

he gives the door a kick or two, in
formin' 'em of his di content, but
that's all. All at once, while we're
prowlin* up one of them spacious al
leys a Mexican thinks is a street, we
comes upon a I-talian with an organ
which he is grindin'. This yere organ
ain't so bad an" I've heerd a heap worse
strains. As soon as Bill sees him he
tries to figger on a dance, but no one 11
dance with him.
" 'ln which event,' says Lockridge, 'I
plays a lone hand.'
"So Bill puts up a small dance, like

" 'This yere man can't play no green

"'He can't, can't he?" says Bill,
mighty scornful. 'Wait till he tries. I
know this man of yore. I meets him
two years ago in Druce's, an' mc an'
him has quite a time.'
" 'Whatever is his name then?' I asks.
"'Antonio Marino,' says the dago.
"'Marino,' Bill, 'thats right. I
recalls it because it. makes mc think
fust he's a sheep man, an' I gets
quite hostile.'
" 'I never see you,' says the dago.
" 'Yes, you did,' says Bill. ' \ ou jest
think you didn't see me. We has

"But the I-talian in i ta he never sees

"When Bill shoots tho I-talian nran
