Dorothy Allen sat on the broad,
white pillared porch watching the
road that wound between the trees to
the village. She had watched the
road a great deal during the last few
days, at first with happy anticipation,
but now with helpless longing.
It was bad enough in (he daytime,
but it was worse when it grew too
dark to see who was coming along the
road, for then the footsteps grew
louder and louder until she was cer
tain that they were going to turn to
ward the white pillared porch, only to
die away again, leaving her sick with
On tlie previous Sunday evening the
vague, beautiful something which had
enveloped the whole summer, making
it different from any other summer of
Dorothy’s life, had suddenly taken
definite form. A look, a touch, a word
or two, and she had found herself
without a doubt that John Porter lov
ed her and that she loved him. lint he
had gone away without any open dec
laration, and. though Dorothy had
watched the road till her eyes ached,
lie had not returned.
“I might have known it," she said to
herself disconsolately. “He is too
proud and independent to ' ask the
daughter of a rich man to marry him.
Now that his work on the new electric
road is finished he will go away, and
I shall never see him again.”
Dorothy’s neighbor, twelve-year-old
Gladys, came skipping across the lawn,
a very perky pink bow topping her
yellow tresses. She perched herself on
the broad arm of Dorothy’s chair.
"I’ve bean reading such a lovely
story!” she exclaimed.
"What was it about':" queried Doro
thy, with lailguid interest.
“Oil, it was about a brave knight in
shilling armor." said Gladys, "and ho
loved a fair and noble lady who loved
him iu return. But she had gold and
jewels and ail that sort < f thing, you
know, and lie hadn't a thing but his
charger and 11is good sword, and so lie
could never, never ask her to marry
"Well,” asked Dorothy as Gladys
paused for breath, “wluit happened
“Oh,” replied Gladys, “there was
nothing fur the knight to do but to
ride away to the wars, and I lie prin
cess just sat in her lower and pined
md pined till at lasl she died. Oh, ll was
perfectly lovely—so sad and sweet!”
"It seems to me,” said Dorothy, al
most crossly, “that it would have been
much more sensible for the knight to
stay and marry the lady instead of
leaving her to pine and die.”
"Why,” cried Gladys In disgust, “that
would have spoiled the whole story.”
She jumped from her perch and was
dancing down tile steps, but turned to
“Oil, say, that Mr. Dorter lias gone
away, hasn't he? I saw him at the
station Monday with a suit case in his
hand. Aren't his eyes just too hand
some for anything? I’m sorry he lias
left, aren't you?"
Then, having unwittingly destroyed
Dorothy’s last vestige of hope, Gladys
A gray hatred mail with a keen but
kindly face came and stood iu the door
way behind Dorothy, noting with an
anxious look her drooping figure. He
moved uneasily once or twice and then
came out to where she was sitting.
“You ought to be playing golf this
fine weather." he suggested.
‘‘Bin rather tired of golf, father,” re

“Has that young Porter left? i
haven't seen him for several days.” ho
asked, with a carefully careless air.
“I really don't know. Probably h<
has.” replied the girl, silting very
straight and assuming an air even
more carefully careless than that of
Mr. Allen after a few more turns
and anxious, sidelong glances betook
himself again to the house. Since the
death of Dorothy's mother ten years
before the bond of sympathy and un
derstanding between him and his only
child had grown unusually strong, but
bere was a situation which he i'olt In
nowise competent to handle.
• Left to herself. Dorothy's sprightly
indifference suddenly vanished. Her
hands fell listlessly into her lap. and
she leaned her head wearily against
the back < f her chair. So he had gone
without even coming to say good by!
Well, there was no use watching the
road any longer.
"It's just like Gladys’ story." she
sighed. "The knight lias gone to tight
his battles, leaving the poor princess

suppose that's one of the modern Im
provements," she continued whimsi
An endless procession of dreary
years seemed to stretch out before her.
She shut her eyes, and two large tears
glistened on the long dark lashes.
Some one was coining across the
lawn, but the footsteps made no sound
on the thick turf. When they began
to ascend the steps Dorothy opened
her eyes with a start, and John Porter
stood before lier.
There was a wonderfully tender light
In Ills eyes and a determined expres
slon about his mouth. Ilow handsome
ho looked! Ilnw tall and strong ho
was! Dorothy caught her breath.
“I thought you had gone away," she
managed to say.
“Only down to the junction to meet
tile chief engineer, lie wanted to talk
over iny next job with me. It's a lit
tle bigger than anything I've ever un
dertaken before. But you didn’t think
I’d go without, seeing you again, did
you, Dorothy, after Sunday night?”
“I didn't know," murmured Dorothy,
her eyes on the big buckles of her
John Porter seated himself ou the
porch rail and looked straight at Dor
"Dorothy," lie said, “1 know it's t lie
general opinion that a man has no
right to ask a girl with a rich father
to marry hint until he can provide for
her the things she has been accus
tomed to having, but it seems to me
that if a girl really cared for a man
she could be happy with him even if
site had to do without some of the
things she'd been used to.”
“I wonder,” thought Dorothy, "if It
can be possible that the hero has mod
ern Improvements too.”
But she kept her eyes on the big sil
ver buckles, and John Porter contin
ued speaking with deliberate convic
tion. "And that is why 1 dare to tell
you that you can afford to give up
some of the things that money can
buy and come and share with me the
things that can’t be bought. Will you
“Yes.” said Dorothy, meeting his look
squarely at last, "I will come.”
Half an hour later they remembered
"He will never allow you to marry
me.” cried John Porter, "a common
builder of roads!”
“A rising young engineer." corrected
Dorothy. “Come on. I’ll manage

a little at the sight of (lie young man

“Your prospects for doing so certain

“Wher'e have you been keeping your

her mind to marry you, you may as
