By AGNES DILLON. {Copyright, 1500, by Associated Literary Press.J Mrs. Lewis Adelbert Simms paused a moment as the automobile deposited her on the walk before a flat building that, to say the least, was battered, though pathetically respectable look ing. ’■ "Dear me!" she said faintly. Then she turned sharply on the imperturb able driver. "Do you menu to say,” she asked rather fretfully, "that tills Is 2125 Rosetnere court V” “The same." said the hired driver. "Two twenty-five, please.” As Mrs. Siinins opened the elaborate gold mesh purse she carried she was conscious of a bewildered surprise. Of course she had known Carrie hud not married wealth, but Carrie's letters in the years during which they had not Been each other lmd been so cheerful! How any woman could be cheerful liv ing on this little side street was beyond Betty Simms. Still bewildered and holding her trailing skirts daintily, she entered Un building. and another surprise met her. There was no elevator, and Mrs. Lewis Adelbert Simms was used to having elevators when she needed them. Ap parently there was nothing to do but to climb, and to the fourth floor too! Each step added to her amazement. It was impossible to picture Carrie as harassed by poverty. Ill their school days she had been one of the regal creatures the mere sight of whom called up visions of ermine and old lace, of lackeys and gold coin. They had all been sure Carrie would marry a millionaire. When she did marry she wrote Betty Simms, wlm had indeed married a millionaire, much to every one's surprise, being a small, quiet, demure little creature of no ap parent brilliance, one of her charac teristic letters. "Mother is furious," Carrie wrote cheerfully, "because Tom isn't rich. 1 can't make her see we shall be far too busy just being- happy to have the mere matter of money count. As for that, some day Tom will bo rich, lie has the brains!" And this was all Tom’s brains had done for Carrie in six years! When she had written Carrie she would pass through her town and wanted to look her up the prompt reply and invitation to luncheon had not mentioned those three flights of stairs. Perhaps Carrie was so used to them she had not thought. Mrs. Simms pressed the but ton beside the door. There was a clatter of feet down in the inside hall and a woman’s voice in laughing protest, and the door opened to precipitate a small sized avalanche of small boy and barking, woolly dog almost into the astonished arms of the caller. Behind the avalanche stood C.t rrle. "Betty at last!" she cried. “Anthony, let the lady in! Take Sub away. We call the dog Substitute because lie's such a ridiculous imitation of a real hearty dog." Mrs. Simms found herself drawn by her friend across the tiny hall into the living room, and there the two took a good look at each other. Carrie, tlie regal Carrie, siuou clad in a bine and white wash shirt waist suit that would not be injured by entry into tbe kitchen. Above it the old brilliant, eager face, thinuer, with hints of lines atid with its interested, searching brown eyes, looked down us of old on Betty Simms in bur Baris wrap and her trading gown. There was a com passion in Betty's eyes that shone forth unknown to her. and Carrie laughed her old gay laugh. "You paid at least $40 for that love of a hut, Betty." she said, "hut per haps you won't mind taking it off and laying it on my $10.50 bed.” "it’s a bird of paradise." said Betty mechanically as she struggled with the hatpins. The dresser silver was the same Carrie hud had at school, with no additions. The dresser scarf was only hemstitched scrim, and the bed spread. though dainty, was of a flow ered silkollue that Betty knew in her soul had been picked up for a few cents u yard. Still dazed, she followed her hostess back into the little parlor. In spite of its smallness It looked bare. Not a superfluous article adorned its walls. Tiie mantel boasted a single ornament —a jar of quaint pottery. The books on the table, however, were plentiful. Tbe single small rug on the waxed floor was an oriental. Through the | treli the dining room table showed, j weathered oak. artistic., but the cheap est of woods. "Toil me all about yourself. Betty." lierWiostess was hogging. For an instant Mrs. Lewis Adelbert Simms groped for words. "Why." she laughed, a trifle ruefully, “there isn’t j anything to tell! 1 just pot married. and life goes on. and there are lots of ! parties and dinners, and things, and I I always seem to be in a terrible rush. I nr else Lewis is, and we never have j time for anything!" "I see." said her hostess, a little quietly, tier great eyes taking In the j somewhat expressionless face of tie- ! other. "Will you excuse me while 1 I put lunch on the table— unless you j want to come into the kitchen with i me?” j She smiled as if giving ati invitation ! to come into the conservatory, and Betty Simms followed and, sitting on a wooden chair, watched Carrie's deft movement from cupboard to refrigera tor and to the stove. ‘AN hy.” sin- said Involuntarily, “you net as if you like doing t It is. Carrie I’eabody!" Carrie paused on Iter \va.v to the table. ”1 don't mind," she said. "It's only a means to an end. lie wants you to take him. Betty.” Mrs. Simms looked into the face of small Anthony clutching her gown and, lifting him up, was surprised to have him cuddle down contentedly as one used to being held and made much of. Sub, the woolly dog. followed, and many emotions chased themselves through the head of Mrs. Simuis. To her credit, not once did sl«r think of the possible wrinkling and spoiling of her gown. When before in her life hud her arms been full of woolly dog and little boy? it was a new sensation. None of her friends seemed as inti mately acquainted with their own , itil- dren as Carrie was with iters. Never before at luncheon had Mrs. Simuis so much as seen a child. let alone touch- »d one. Yet somehow Anthony did not seem out of place here nor i:t the way. lie seemed part of the house hold and to take his place naturally. It was a very simple luncheon, though tt dainty one. anv* .i tasted amazingly good to the veltor. who was rather silent. Site was trying to recent ii>> the cheerful fa-e of Carrie real tod.v with the account Carrie was giving <»f iter life. "It 1-uw been laird on Tom." site was saying. "The company lie was with when we married failed, and that end ed putting his invention through And when lie did get another place typhoid tool; him. you know, and it was months—well, we got through some how. I had a few hundreds of my own saved for some emergency, an I I concluded the emergency had arrived And things have kept coming up— Tom’s brother’s trouble and then this small boy of ours, and with it all we’ve •been, as I wrote you, Betty, poor—very poor." "But." said the woman, listening, struggling to adjust the facts before her—“but you seem so liappy. Carrie.” There was a hint of envy in tier tone. “NYby shouldn’t I be?" asked the woman in the blue wash gown. An tliony on her knee, "florae lime it will bo better, when Tom gets n firm hold on things. And I have him and Anthony, and wo all care truly about each other, and I eoau c -e we aren’t ri 1 enough tf' go outside 10 t'ud. distractl- u nnd amusement we've learned t■> de pend on each other, and we're very contented d- lug !t. Betty. We're very happy in (ho- lit'lo cheap fiat. Why. I suppoy - we're just as liappy as you and I.ev!s. with all your money nnd what P 1 rings into vour lives." Across the face of the listening worn an there was a faraway expression that was tinged with a little I it *'-r ness. It was as if she were looking into tier past and seeing many things. "Carrie.” she spoke suddenly, tuivi ousiy. "I'd give all it has brought me ar.c! ever bids fair to bring me for one minute of the perfect companion ship poverty lias brought you and Tom. And for Anthony—yes. and for tlie woolly dog tlint loves you all." “I’m sorry about the stairs." Carrie told tier guest as she watched tier de part a little later to t ire puffing auto mobile below. “Oh." said Betty. "1 never thought of them! 1—I'm thinking about some thing else. Stairs really don’t matter much, after all." And the curve off tire descent swal lo—ed up the bird of paradise ns Mrs Lewis Adelbert Simms wotit back with a strong*- reluctance to the world of elevators and unlimited credit. A matron of the most determined character was encountered by a young woman reporter on a country paper, who was sent out to interview leading citizens as to their politics. ‘‘May I see Mr. ?” she asked of a stern- looking woman who opened the door a' one house. ‘‘No. you can’t,” answered the matron decisively. “But I want to know what party he belongs to,” p eaded the girl. The woman diew up ner tall figure. ‘‘Well, take a goon look at me,” she said, “I’m the party he belongs to!” Don’t Knock Your Home Town. Home Trade Journal. There are people in most every town who take pleasure in going around knocking the place. They are not all strangers, either. They stop you on the street and tell you what a delightful time they had in New York or Chicago; then they turn away with some hopeless remark like this; "Yes, that was living, It was great. Why, I just hated to come back to this old hole in the mud. ” It is of no use to remind them that this is “home" to them. You know the types of men and women that this ap plies to. Fortunately for the town, people of that calibre never amount to enough to do the place any great amount of harm. They would not be contented anywhere, even if a new Garden of Eden were planted for their especial benefit. These are the persons who send off to Mail Order Houses for their goods. They would not want their town mer chants to know they were purchasing such a lot of cheap, shoddy articles. You can spot ’em every time. Benton Raised the Issue. Cleveland Leader. When T, H. Benton was in the House he was of the opinion that the third day of March and, consequently, the Congressional term—ended at midnight of that day, instead of at noon on the fourth, as unbroken usage had fixed it. So, on the last morning he sat with his hat on, talked loudly, loafed about the floor, and finally refused to vote or ans wer to his name when the roll was called. At last the Speaker, the Hon. Jas. L. Orr, of South Carolina,'picked him up and put an end to these legisla tive larks. “No, sir; no, sir!” shouted the ven erable Missourian. “I will not vote. I have no right to vote. This is no House, and I am not a member of it!” “Then, sir,” said Speaker Orr, like a flash, with his sweetest manner, “if the gentleman is not a member of this House the sergeant-at-arms will please put him out. ” And so this vast Constitutional ques tion settled itself.
