She Avas standing on the dock of the cornmo- ,„„,, dore's vessel in a blue suit with a /P jaunty little navy cap on, and she seem- ri " ed to focus all the bright elements ot oxygen and sea air and sunshine that were loose that day. Do Huyster laid formal and formidable siege. A lot of fellows fell back at his approach and said savagely that they had no snow. De Huyster Avas worth $350,000 and had large expectations. Besides he was a swell, and had a jet-black mustache that matched his stallion. There won nothing on tho record better than the De Huysters, and Avhen Paul De Huys- ter danced with tho beauty a lot of people said It was the handsomest couple on the floor. Then there AVOS Do Loonnay, who give her finishing lessons on the harp for six months, and Avound up by foiling on his knees and tearing his hair, and upsetting the music-rack. Lucille was touched by his dementia. She lifted him up tenderly, gave him her cologne and stopped taking lessons on the harp. Snogglesou came later. He wrote her letters with "Snoggleson & Snoggle- son, Importers," printed across the top. Snoggleson was bald-headed and a bachelor. Ho had some excellent characteristics. Ho remembered when the Astor house iwas built, and he read the able editorials on tin-plate manufacture every day in the year. He was what the boys call "solid and safe," and he could play backgammon with the beauty's father in tho library long aftei the beauty had gone to bed. She couldn't help respecting him, he was so considerate and conscientious. There AVUS too, a sense of security hi his presence. Something told hor that he Avould go on playing backgammon, and wouldn t throw himself on his knees and upset the music-nick, and when he was absent, she had a deep and abiding faith •that he was reading the articles on tinplate and Avas thus serenely removed above all tho distractions and petty issues of the hJour. # * * I ought not to forget Pulgne— Cyril Pulgne—ill-cause ho AVUS rather prominent in the affair. Old Wotod Pulgne, Ms father, was Avorth about $5,000,000. "Young Pulgne t\vas the only heir. He put Lucille on Ills reserved list of available wlomen to many when he got through soAvhig liis Avild oats. He had a mine in Colorado and a horse hi NBAV Jersey named after her. He paid her •attention at a Avuterlng place, and had his sister send lie:- father invitations ior all tho Pulgne receptions. He suo- •ceeded in creating an impression in his club that he Avould many Lucille whenever ho got. his oats disposed of. In addition to these avowed admirers there AVOS Dr. Meredith Mellentouo •of St. Sophia's, and Charley Dartover of Amherst, and the brilliant cosmo- •polite, Ben Hnyling, who could make a Welsh rarebit and play on the.cornet, and called Ms den a "studio," and dab- Trted in oils, and had worked up a piquet little scandal in home circles that ho had even painted nude from life hi •that don. , * * * It must be aoknoAvledged, therefore, that Lucille entered upon the woman's •career with aU modern improvements. 'The purely feminine part of her existence, was largely a matter of adjuncts. She carried half a score hearts on her Does she ohuck you under the chin?" "She did, but it didn't work. She's lu love.
