-AGE SIXTEEN. THE DAILY COURIER, CONNICLL.SVrL JO, PA, FRIDAY, MARCH 11, t ; f, s.. 1EIKS BY WINIFRED VAN DUZER CHAPTER I. -I met on 'he train going 1 op to Haverf ird. He saw fir it a rtout Uttle dab-heeled brogue sticking out be- rond the Pullman chair, and for the first ten miles of their journey this was all ho knew of her--that she wore broguea sometimes--for the chair was turned and he could not *ee over the top. Idling a* were his thoughts m the languid winaomenea* of April, they fixed themaelve* open that Uttle shoe critically, with all the questioning attitude of his artist'* mind. It wa* singularly dainty for snch a common sense bit of footgear, heavy-soled for utility and stitched across tho vamp for smartness. The girls he knew best wore fragile, spike-heeled pumps, and he reflected uphappily that thi* girl probably would be some hiker going up from New York for a tramp in the hills in dowdy knickers and sweater with a knapsack strapped to her back. Not the g^rl a man would care to strike acquaintance with even for a tedious hour on the tram. Didn't they know better than to g» about aping; men, taking on all the masculine fcnattractivcness, and bringing out their own worst points as well? Women! The brogue moved slightly--the girl had slid further down in her chair--and he leaned froWard, his surprised glancn slipping along a length of sheerest chiffoW hose quite inconsistent with the brogue, but delightful to the sight. A steeply arched instep rising to a slender ankle--wasn't this a dancer's foot?--and a line running up to the edge of a knitted beige sJtirt in the merest hint of carve, ending in a knee tha'. was neither knahby nor fat The girl must be young and graceful--certainly graceful. Aristocratic, toot Her ankle showed breeding. Last Winter, when ho had done poster* for a hoisery house, they had searched Mew York for just such a model. And searched in vain. Eventually the chair swung rbund alrrost as If moved by the force of !iie curionity. Slowly it turned and abruptly he found himself looking into m pair of red- brown eyes; warm, friendly eyes, with laughter in them somewhere and earnestness and eagerness as weU. just for a fleeting instant. Then, aa a light is dimmed, the friendliness was withdrawn, the, warmth vanishe-d. The girl looked through and beyond 'him and turned indifferently toward the window. But so vivid had been his senat) of contact in that brief instant, and so complete was his feeling of aloneneas now it had passed, that he dropped back rather like a collapsed balloon and muttered aloud, "Weilf The girl had not thought it Worth while to turn her chair and now he could see what she was like. Not the frump he had imagined 1 The little knitted suit bespoke Fifth Avenue, if not Fifty- seventh street, and there was nowhere about her a hint of the rough and ready hiker. All slender voungncsa she was, like the silver birches which grew so straight and proud in (he bits of woodland beside the tracks. And the pinky- white sweetness of her face made him think of the cherry blossom* which kept lending their fragrance through the open window at his elbow. Orchards al! along the way--what a day! If a chap could cros* the aisle, bend over her, say something to bring a m-iile to those half-pouting, umall-girl lips. Beside* her hair waa red. Not bricky, nor the Titian which challenges adventure. Some, indeed, might have called the mop, parted and done in a knot at her neck, merely "blond," and let it go at that, but the artist instinct waa more exact. He classed It "amber, 1 ' and in thought painted tt in tints shading! from gold to bronie H as the light played on Its smovth- neaa. though escaped end; curling at her temple* ware lake little threads of flame. One did not speak to a girl with hair like that when she wished not to be spoken tA And because he was n sincere workman, an artist from the tips of his long, thin Angers to the top of his sleek, dark head, he presently forgot the girl and might never have thought of her again had the train n6t slowed as it ran out on a little bridge and started up with a lurch. Absorbed in thought of work, he wafi returning to his s^at, crossing between coaches, when it happened. The girl was at an open door, npon^the shelf which coven Pullman st«M when the door 1* closed as this one should have saving my life. I'm afraid my uncles were right:--they're my family, you see, four uncles. They said I'd never g*t as far as Haverford all by my-elf. I'm sort of silly, I expect, doiag a thing like (-V...J- » that.' "Y m'ra al! right now," he repeated. And then because she looked so little and scared and because sow it o ! the interest he had felt in tie bee-inning had come back, he sat down in the 1 chalt ahead, turning it so they faced each other, and began to talk about the orchards and the frosy- thia spilled everywhere like'pot*, of gold and the springtime lake* whieh^lay in the fields like broken mirrors. And finally pink came back to her cheeks and tier hand* no longer twisted in her lap. Then ha said, quite casually, ·^·j Hand* Were Romgk on Hmr $homl4er»--Stt**l6hing Hmr Fr*»m ihe Empty Spmce Above the Sliver. been, and sh* wa* gnsing 4own on the river far below. The wheels ground Jl at enee; ihe train jerked all along it* length and the jar flung her forward. With a frightened cry she clutched for something?--anything --bat she had been leaning far oat and her balance wa* pone. But something wtui holding her; hands were rough on hor shoulders- snatching her from the«mpty space above the river. She Stood upon the platform again and closed tier eyes, sobbing. The tail young man held to her shoulders, pressing her against the side of the door, for she 7 seemed about to faint. "Don't shake like that," he ordered her huskily. "You're all right now. They'd no business leaving that thing open. Good Lord, don't cry! Here--can you walk? Let's get inside." She moved beside him, still trembling, and he took her to her seat, helping her gently, bringing a cushion for her feet But when he got a little flask and offered her brandy she refused. i "But yon need something. Water then--" He brought water and after awhile she stopped baking and smiled, though "her lip a were pale. "1 suppose I must thank you tor Tai Kenneth Wtlmer," and flipped the cover of. a magazine. A lovely) girl face looked up from the cover but the red-brown eyes swept past thia to the sprawled signature beneath which vma, hia own. He tried to keep pride *nt of his expression but he was a bit too young, a bit too beady with the thrill of siicceo to manage very well. So when he saw her brows come down as she studied him in a puzzled way a flush went over his good looking face. "Perhaps you don't Are for my stuff," he be^an stiffly, "Oh, I do! Only--well, you see Pve saved your pictures. Dozen* and dozen* of them. All the girls at school /lid We iiad our walls lined--oh, not. quite, I suppose, but nearly. We thought them the nicest girl pictures there are at all. It waa a sort »f fad with as, do you see?" ' He had a white, flashing (mil* and he loved homage.. "Of coarse none of 'tm ever expected actually to meet you!" And the way she said "you" was a glow- Ing tribute. "We had a Uttle drawing of-you we cut from a newspaper but I see now It wasn't a likeness at all. You--why, jw're j u s f n kid I" (To li» continued.)'
