Oorgas pMMANDHIS AmMOIfY BARB Copyright, 1915, by George 8f rr McCulolieon. CONTINUED I tried to convince him that the pleas ure had been all mine and then in quired for Mrs. Titus and the countess. "They're both here, but the good I,ord only knows where. .Mrs. Titus goes driving every morning. Roads are fine if you can stick to them. 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 ably. "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 play. I shall not discuss our game further I than to say that he played iu atrocious-. ly bad form, but with a purpose that let me to s<>tiie degree into the secret j of his success in life. If I do say it my-1 self lam a fairly good player. I don't believe I was ever in better humor | than on this gay November morn. I i 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. CHAPTER XXVII. _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 appreciated." "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 hillside. "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 lng to the yynng man's father, with n grin. "Not the snme girl," said he succinct- \ ly, squinting liis eyes. "That's the lit-' tie Parsons girl from Richmond. He was to meet her lit Covington. Jasper is a scientific butterfly. He makes 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." Later on Jasper junior and I strolled over to the casino veranda, the chatty 1 Miss Parsons between us. but leaning I a shade nearer to young Titus than to j me. although she appeared to be some what overwhelmed at meeting a real 1 live author. Mr. Titus, as was his h;ibit, hurried.on ahead of us. I alter ward discovered he had a dread of | pneumonia. "Aline never said a word about your | coming, John." said Jasper junior. He I called me John with considerable gus- J to. "She's learning how to hold hc-r fongiie." "It happens that she didn't kn"w I was coming," said I drylv. He whls tied. "fhe's off somewhere with Amber j dale. Ever meet him? He's one oi the flr-ist chaps I know. You'll like him. Miss Parsons. He's not at all like a Britisher." "P.ut I like tlie British," said she. "Then I'll tell liira to spread it on .1 bit." said Jappy obligingly. "Grentl horseman he is. Got some ripping ] nags in the New York show next week, j and hi- rides like a dream. Watch him I pul! down a few ribbons and rosettes | Sure thing." "Your father told me that the count j ess was off riding with him and an- ] other chap—off to Faslifern, I believe." j "For luncheon. They do it three oil four times a week. Not for me. I like | waiters with shirt fronts and nicklel tags." Alone with me in the casino half ar hour later, lie announced that it realljl looked serious, this affair bet ween I Aline and his lordship. I tried to appear indifferent—a rathei' pale effort. 1 fear. "I think 1 aiu in on the secret. Jap py," said I soberly. ITe stared. "Has she ever said any- i thing to you, old chap, that would lead you to beiic e she's keen about him?" j I temporized. "She's keen about! somebody, ray son. That's as far as 1 j will go." "Then it must be Amberdale. I'm on' to her all right, all right. I know women. She's in love, hang it all! If: you know a thing about 'em you can j spot the symptoms without the X-rays. I've been hoping against hope, old man. j I don't want her to marry again." I have visited the popular and almost historic Fassifern farm a great many "I do not oxpect to be married for at least a year." times in my short career, but for the life of me I cannot understand what at- i traction it possesses that could induce ' people to go there for luncheon and ! then spend a whole afternoon lolling about the place. But that seems to have been precisely what the countess I and his lordship did on the day of m.v I arrival at the Homestead. The "other! chap." Skelly, came riding home alone at 3 o'clock. She did not return until ; nearly 0. By that time I was in a state j of suppressed fury that almost drove ■ me to the railway station with a slngi« j and you might say childish object in i view. I had a pleasant visit with Mrs. | Titus, who seemed overjoyed to see me. In fact I hud luncheon with her. Mr. Titus. It appeared, never ate luncheon. He had a dread of typhoid, I believe, and as he already possessed gout and Insomnia and an Intermittent tendency to pain in his abdomen and couldn't drink anything alcoholic or eat any MO J A Spend an evening at home with MOJA all Havana quality and dis cover how a few can thoroughly sat isfy that craving for a rich, full bodied Quality that the same money's worth of nickel cigars could not satiate.

Mrs. Titus talked ;i great deal nliout | Lord Amberdale. She was most tire j some after the first half hour. but. I j must say that the luncheon was ad- J mirable. I happened to lie hungry. , Having quite made up my mind that Aline was going to marry Amberdale, I proceeded to upset the theory that a man in love is a creature without gas } tronomical aspirations by vulgarly stuffing myself with half a lamb chop, a slice of buttered bread and nine pickles. | Along about 5 o'clock I went to my j room. I daresay I was sulking. A po lite bellboy tapped on my door at half past <». He presented a small envelope to me, thanked me three or four times and as an after thought announced | that there was to be an answer, where upon I road the countess' note with a magnificently unreadable face. I I cleared my throat and (T think) j squared my shoulders somewhat as a \ soldier does when he is being com ' mended for valor and said: [ "Present my compliments to the | countess and say that. Mr. Smart will | be down in five minutes." i The boy stared. "The—the what, sir?" "The what?" I demanded. | "I mean the who. sir." "The countess, the lady who sent you up with this, note." ! "Wasn't no countess sent me up byer. boss. It was Miss Tarsney." Somehow* staggered, I managed to wave my hand comprehensively. "Never mind. Just say that I'll be jown in two minutes." j He grinned. "I reckon I'd better : hustle or you'll beat me down, boss." • •••••* She was still in her riding habit ; when I found her alone in the parlor | of the Titus suit. I I give you my word my heart almost I stopped beating. I've never seen any j one so lovely as she was at that mo ment—never, I repeat. Her hair, i blown by the kind November winds, ; strayed—but 110! I cannot begin to de | fine tiie loveliness of her. There was j a warm, rich glow in her cheeks and a I light in lier eyes that actually bewil dered me, and more than that I ain not j competent to utter.
