round and very blue, and had nlwavs a wide-open. surprised look. Just to see her you would have erjavted lier to lisp a trifle and to be jiiat a bit kittenish in expression. Hut she wasn't. She was intensely straightforward, even strong minded.
The ^lieutenant saw her at a tcmnemncu social that lie was reporting one evening for liiH paper, the "Daily Hreas." He had really worn shoulder-simps, but he had left the ser view and its ;xx*nble fields of glory for a more pronounced slaves* in tho field of journalism.
Like nil military young men. hs considered himself a judge—a connoisseur—in all that per-
I '"K. and these particularly pretty eye*. ! "Just nut." lie said, to himself. "I'll talk
"May I trouble you fur tlie nanas of tlie ; ofliceia in your society?'* lie asked, stepping up j to her, pencil in hand.
I "Vas," she anawerod, gravely, and led tlie j way to a lmy-wimlow, where there were chair* and a table, and wlwre the lieutenant could write undisturi>od. Tile) sat down, ami he j asked her a great many ijuestiims. to which ; fhe made grave, concise answer*. Meanwhile, 1 he made hien«gly])hic* wliidi he could not read j on his paper, and wondered why she did not smile and dimple. He was sure her baby face would lie all Slie spoke only in reply to his qurtrtions; ami when In* was at a 1<«» for another question the conversation ended.
"Not the sort slie looks." he concluded, finally. "Cue*a slw's a little too new. Not worth studying." He tiiaukeAt tilt* door slie s|)oke—-
"I'm glad to have met you," ulie *aid. "I write occasionally. I hope we /JiaJl see more nf 4-ach tiher," and tlien slie said good night, and shut tlie door.
The Lieutenant whistled to himself. "I* this I the result of brannewness, or irti't slie as new ! a.s I thought?" And he planned to*ask for tint assignment when the anciety should next ' mix t. Tlie - next meeting was a im.nth later, ; and lie had frirgotten, except for an occasiiaial i wlf-satisiutl, pleasing memory of her surprising words when they parted.
The Lieutenant was a liambome young man, ; and lie knew that his title, and the magnifiont way lie carricd his ahoulder*, were siifiicient i 111 theimw Ives to make any girl love him.
When the "Y.I'.T.C." next met. it was at home, and he was there piomptl.V. Hefore liTJig he made his way U) *\here "Tlie Inscrut-
sing?" he aaked.
Yea," she raid.
"And you will sing for me?"
, Of course that was the next neceaaary phrase. Hut Wie (answered—
"Yes, I will sing with you."
She amae and found aonte mualc. It waa Millotti'a "Night," and a bit difficult for him; but *he »at n{ (h, pml piivfd in a ayrapt-
thetlo- way that made him enthnaiastic to try it with her.
Her voice was soft and clear even on the highest notes, and wlien the serenade was ended ho tliought he was two thirda in love with
They sang again and again, and when finally ho went away he eapie*wd his mppreciation in tlie hope that he nuglit come often.
"Yes," site said calmly, and without aentl-
All the way to his den, and even into dream, land lie was aocning street Ui bring him back to his cynscel self. "Why," lie thought, "*he didn't speak •*x words the whole evening thrtaigh—or sixteen at most."
Then U> affirm his return to a matter-of-fact existence, he ordered stroi g coffee ami I nun and
Hut after a week's reflection, he concluded that she was a nice little girl and quite harm* less, and lie went l»ack again to sing wiUi her.
One evening tliey sang the "Night" again— Serenely smile the heavens,
Peaceful and calm Uie night.
Tlieir voice* echoed together, and tlie Lieu-tenant was .rapturous over her ainging,
"We sing together ainazingly well, don't we?" he asked.
S|ie l(M>k<-«l at him, but for answer played the chords of the seienade softly, llio clock struck ten, and she always rose fn«m the piano wiien it grew tliat late. Her motion seemed to break the spell of sentimmit their singing had invoked. When he had found his liat and reached the door lie was back to earth again.
"Pleasant (wit to-night," ho said, as he stepped ii|m>ii the porch; hut lie was thinking to himself: "Slie hasn't spoken a word for an hour. I believe she a half asleep." Suiklenly small, round arms wern mhcut his neck, and slie was saying impetuously—
"I like you. If yoti don't i-are for me, don't come here again."
The words I tad fairly tumWed forth, head, long; ami sln» was giaie, tlw door shut.
"(hie/* I'm the one who is asleep," lie said, . when lie was finding liis way down the aAepg.
"lN*»r little gismse, ' \lw said iw* he r«difd his door. "1 ought not to have gone tliere just to sing." \ -
There was aoniehov a suggestion of pink and-white ln-tweeii the line* of his papor as he wrote next day. and he solilnpiised from time
"After all"—he stepped in tho middWof an article on the city p«»lit>- "she is U*> must straightforward, sensible girl I know: and why shouldn't she have *p< ken as slie did, if slie was inclimd?"
Tint night he calTetl again.
