I am an uperWiifH traveler, and

when I last saw Uncle Jim as in 1869.
When my eyes first lighted on It.
Ills daughter. Nina, wa* with Uncle
Jim on that l*»t occasion—a child, all
leg* and arms, and in the midst of the
moat uninteresting period o f girlhood.
But that was five years ago. At 18 she
should have begun to resemble her
mother, whom I remember reverencing
In my youth as the ideal of woman
It was Nina whom I was to safeguard
on the journey. Uncle Jim had heard
that I was to leave for the west on the
first day of November, and the date fell
in very well with Nina's wish to visit a
schoolgirl friend in Chicago.
We were to meet in the Grand Cen
tral station In time for the 6 o'clock
express. 1 planned to be there half an
hour in advance, but the habit of years
prevailed, and I rushed into the sta
tion with a ' grip" in each hand at pre
cisely four minute* of 6.
It was short allowance of time for
finding my relative*, buying my tick

a father and a daughter, but I am al
ways in a hurry, and it doesn’t bother
me much. .My first glance failed to
detect the tonering form of Unci* Jim,

“All right. Nina’" said X. rushing up
to the girl a* she stood by the big bag
trembling with Impatience. “I’ll get
the tickets and be here In a Jiffy!"
'•Oh. I thought you were never com

It was a football rush that carried
me to the ticket window and back j
“Where’* your fnther?" I asked as l ,
rejoined her. It wn* evident that she
was looking nnxlously for him.
"There! < >h, there!" she suddenly ex
claimed. and darted through the gate
Into the train shed.
I did not see Uncle Jim, and there was
no time to worry about him. The train
was just starting: It was actually in
! motion when 1 swung myself aboard

■ only a finger to grasp the guard rail.

I hadn’t any idea who George was.
hut to be reassuring I said that there
was no doubt about his punctuality, -he j
seemed relieved, and conversation died. !
As the train roared through the tunnel ;
I busied myself in speculating what had
become of Uncle Jim. There was some
thing queer about the affair, and I could
not fathom it. I had asked her one or
two questions, and she had answered in
H way that led me to believe that Uncle
Jim had at the last moment refused his
consent to her going and that she had
played some sort of triek upon him. In
such a case what should I do?
While this question was running
through my mind and I was planning
an investigation I began lo experience
that, queer sensation Which results, no
body knows how, from somebody’s
staring fixedly at the hack of one's

how should I ever explain matters to .
"When do we gel to Greenwich?’
asked my unknown companion.
Greenwich! Bo she w»s not only ,
with the wrong man. but she was on
the wrong railroad. Obviously she had j
made the mistake that many another ;
had made before her and had wandered j
Into Ihe waiting room of the New York j
f'entral Instead of that of the New ,
York. New Haven anil Hartford. What j
should I say to h*r? Hysterics was the
least I could expect If I told her tha
"Don’t worry about that." said I.
"Leave everything to me. I'll tell you
all about It In a few minute*. Mean
while I must speak to an acquaintance
of mine who Is in this car. You'll ex- j
cuse me. won t you'."'
Hhe gave a tearful assent, and I cross- )
eil the ear and told the whole story to i
my cousin Nina. Bhe found some nat- j
oral difficulty In swallowing it. hut my i
manner was marked by that aggrieved ]
sincerity which come* to a man when j
fate has really abused him. and litis
•'lt was all the fault of that old yel
low traveling bag of your father's." said
I. vVho Would have thought that there
was another like It In the world?"
"It you had come earlier.” she replied,
with Just but gentle reproof. “Father
and I gave you up. and he put me
aboard the train. Hut there's no use
talking about that. The question Is
what to do right now. She seems a nice
"Unquestionably." 1 hastened to say.
"No one eould doubt it for n Moment.”
"We must find out who her people
are,” said Nina. "Her father must be
sent for. Probably she will tell her sto
ry to me more readily man to you. Take
me over there and introduce me."
“But I don't know her name.”
"Never mind that. You know mine.
Now, come along."
Evidently Nina had grown up Into a
young woman of great decision of char
acter. She had made up Iter mind to ,
take this affair entirely off my hands.
The other girl had no objection to |
making an acquaintance. Indeed ahe |
seemed to experience a deep relief In I
the presence of one of her own sex.
With infinite tact Nina toid her the ,
story of my mistake and obtained the
girl's story In return. JHer name was
Ethel Rogers, and she lived With her I
parents in Plainfield, N. J. She was in I

Therefore Clarke had sent a deputy In
the person of a friend, with whose as
pect at least he supposed Ethel to bo
well acquainted. As a matter of fact,
though she had once known th" young
man. she had totally forgotten what he
looked like. She had missed him on the
arrival of her truin from Plainfield, hut
this contingency tyjd been provided for
tn Ihe correspondence. In such a case
the rebellious maiden and the servicea

It appeared also that Ethel had come

In less Ilian a second she had a vis

these people, tell them your story, tele-

Clarke. Hurry "

very little growth ot population. The
