Aline said something last night about
riding over to Fassifern this forenoon
with Amberdale and young Skelly.
Let's see, it's half past 10. Yes, they've
gone by this time. Why didn't you
write or telegraph Aline? She'll be
as mud as a wet hen when she finds
you've come without letting her know."
"I thought I should like to take her
by surprise," I mumbled uncomfort
"And my son Jasper—why, ho will
explode when lie hears you're here. |
lie's gone over to Covington to see u
girl off on the train for Louisville.
You've never seen such a lio.v. He is
always going to Covington with some
girl to see that she gets the right train i
home. Rut why are we wasting time I
here when we might he doing a few j
holes before lunch? I'll take yo?i on.
Of course, you understand I'm a i
wretched player, but I've got one vir-j
tue: I never talk about my game and
1 never tell funny stories while my;
opponent is addressing the ball. I'm j
an okl duffer at the game, but I've got
more souse than most duffers."
We sauntered down to the club I
house, where he insisted on buying me j
a dozen golf balls and engaging a I
caddy for me by the week. I'p to the j
moment we stepped up to the tirst tee
he talked incessantly of Aline audi
Rosemary, but the instant the game'
was on lie settled into the grim reserve I
that characterizes the man who takes!
any enterprise seriously be it work or j
I shall not discuss our game further I
than to say that he played iu atrocious-.
ly bad form, but with a purpose that

of his success in life. If I do say it my-1

even apologized for Mr. Titus' execra- j
ble foozles. I amiably suggested that |
he was a little off Ills game and that j
he'd soon strike his gait and give me j
a sound beating after the turn. Bis
smile was polite, but ironic, and it
was not long before I realized that he |
knew his own game too well to be af
fected by cajolery. He just pegged!
away, always playing the odd or worse, |
uncomplaining, unresentful. as even j
tempered as the May wind, and never j
by any chance winning a hole from j
me. He was the rarest "duffer" it has j
e\ er been my good fortune to meet.
_he Proposes.
AS a rule, the poorer the player
the louder his execrations. Jas.'
l per Titus was one of the worst j
players I've ever seen, but b° I
was the personification of gentility |
even under the most provoking circum
stances. I'or instance, at the famous
"Crater" it was my good fortune to j
pitch a ball fairly 011 the green from i
the tee. His mashie shot landed his|
ball about twenty feet up the steep hi!' !
which guards the green. It rolled half
way back. Without a word of disgust
or so much as a scowl he climbed up
and blazed away at it again, not once,
but fourteen times by actual count.
On the seventeenth stroke he triumph
antly laid his ball 011 the green. Most!
men would have lifted and conceded
the hole to me. He played it out.
"A man never gets anywhere, Mr. |
Smart," said lie. unruffled by his mis- !
erable exhibition, "unless he keeps
plugging away at a thing. That's my
principle in life. Keep at it. There is j
satisfaction in putting tiie blarticd ball
in the hole, even if it does require
twenty strokes. You did it in three,
but you'll soon forget the feat I'm not
likely to forget the troubles I had go-!
ing down In twenty, and there lies the j
secret of success. If success comes I
easy we pass it off with a laugh: if it
comes hard we grit our teeth and re
member the ways and means. You
may not believe it, but I took thirty- j
three strokes for that hole one day last
week. Day before yesterday I did it in
foar. Perhaps it wouldn't occur to you j
to think that it's a darned sight easier j
to do it in four than it is in thirty- 1
three. Get the idea?"
"I think I do. Mr. Titus," said I. j
"The things that 'come easy' are never I
"Right, my boy. It's what we have
to work for like nailers that we lie
awake thinking about."
We came out upon the eminence i
overlooking the next hole, which lay j
far below us. As I stooped to tee up
my ball a gleeful shout came up the
"Hello, John Bellamy!"
Glancing down, I saw Jasper junior I
at the edge of the wagon road. He was;
waving his cap, and even at that dis
tance I could see the radiance in his
good looking young face. A young and I
attractively dressed woman stood be
side him. I waved my hand and shout-!
Ed a greeting.
"I thought you said he'd gone to
Covington to see her off." I said, turn

both ends meet—nearly always. Now. ]
no one but u genius could have lixed it j
up to see one girl <i(T and meet another i
on the same train."
