Nombers 3ft and 41 Walnut street formed a double houae In a pleasant, thoncJi^ unfaablonable, quarter of the suburban city ot Wblterow. Niitnber 39 wasoccapted by Mrs. Martha HIg- Slnaon and her small but select boarding house. Number 41 bad been vacant up to within a short time, but a family had lately moved in, conaUUng as far as the Observation, of tbe neighbors went, of a middle-aged man and woman and a girl of 18—presumably father, mother and daughter. It had been learned thnt the nam*e of the family was Mayhfw and that tbe male head of It. who appeared to be a cor.- firmed invalid, had served gallantly In the war of the rebellion as a major of Tolonteera. Also that be was now Iti receipt of a pension In supposed repayment for the loss of the health he had left behind him in the Vir^'iui.-i swamps. To eke out this neccssarllv rather scant income the daughtor decorated china—or at least It was Inferred that such might be the case from the fact of her being seen during a part of every day l.ndusirlously painting pottery In the front bay window. ^Ventworlh Derrloott, bachelor, aged 36. bad been In poases.slon of Mrs. Uig- ginson's second floor for nearly a year By occupation he was a reviewer of published books and a reader of un\» pubilthed ones. DerrlcoU longed to make Misa Bell Mayhew's acquaintance. No doubt be would get to know her eventually, for Mrs. HIgglnson would make a neighborly call. In tbe course of time, and, ttf^tbe course of time that coll would be returned, and tbuia cndually a way to an acquaint- aneeship between the two households would be paved. But all that form and ceremony might take several weeks. Oerrlcott had been accustomed to look upon himself as a hardened and hard-hearted bachelor. Now, on a sudden, he discovered that there was a soft place somewhere about him, the pretence of which he bad not suspected. Tbe Joys of single-blessedness. . which he knew, began to grow dim befor} dreams of the delighu of married ^llss. which, as yet, be knew not. H(i was not habitually an early riser, bat one morning. In consequence ol work neglected the da.v before, he got up with the sun, and made a discov ery which proved to be of some Impor tance to him. He had Just finished hi. preliminary toilet and seated himself for doing a stint before be could be disturbed by the breakfast bell when chancing to glance downward, he saw In the street a figure which at once arrttsted his attention. A young lady in a becoming blue suit was in the act of mounting a bicycle in front of No 41. He thought he never had beheld a more pleasing spectacle than Miss Bell Mayhew—for of course it was she —looked at that moment, and he gazed at her with all his eyes so long as he was vouchsafed the privilege. After •be had ridden away out of sight Ke resumed bis work, or tried to do so, but it Is to be feared that the much he had hoped to accomplish proved In tbe end to be lamentably little. He remembered that he had a bicycle up- garret and he determined to give it. and himself, much more than formerly. Tbat vefy day he got the ^- , * machine downstairs and put it in or- r*.-.-' der. ; He jdid not always ride In the morning, and he never ventured to start out at tbe same time that she did. He carefully refrained from, doing anything which might even remotely cause her annoyance, or lead her to suspect how glad he would have been If they could have taken their daily "constitutionals" hi company. He frequently met her, though—be did not feel that duty called upon him to avoid that—sometimes going, sometimes returning, twice or tbrlce far trova home. On the last-named occasions he would have bowed slightly had be dared, for since they saw each other so often, why were they not, in a manner. acquainUnces?—only she never gave him the chance, or seemed ,• to ahow the slightest inclination to ei^''^ courage such a familiarity. One morning, very early, before sunrise in fact, he went out for a ride. "She'll not be stirring for an hour ' yet," he thought, "and I can get home again before she starts." What was his surprise, however, while traversing a favorite bit of road, known as the Sheldon turnpike, to espy a familiar figure not very far ahead. It was Bell Mayhew moving along at a leisurely pace, when suddenly her wheel struck a stone and the next moment she was lying on the ground. Derrlcott hurried to her as- Blttance. She partly raised herself from her reclining position as he appeared, and he saw that she was very pale and evidently in much pain. "Miss Mayhew," he exclaimed, "are • yon hurt—" "I think I have apralned my ankle, ahe said. "What can I dor he asked, rather awkwardly. "Tou must be got home as toon as possible." B« placed the injured, girl on her bicycle and by pushing It and leading bit own whe(fc1 he managed to get ber hoBw.

This cfivU^ be accomplished simply by makii^ at night the vane pf the sem^bota luminous. As in our cities lights are arraagad In lines and letters to cateb tba at- tentlon, so here the signal could W come a flery arm pointing outward ar down, or. If need be, midway hetWHIl these directions at will. Such a liaa of fire would be strikingly different from the usual lights of buildinga or of streets.
