So no wtfter reuu'inhranco of tho days

hi.n understand that ho had been
rohbed. The -oft. gentle tones t-lint

b! ho smiled. shrugged his shoulders
frpii-adhis h.imls and looked at her
w rh that eaim trustfulness ono sees
in dogs and children
she smiled nodded pointed up tho
f- airs and then ran out of the house.
S H returned with a loaf of bread and
a half pound of .sausages for him. and
a roll for herself she would make
th it do; he was a stranger alone and
friendless. She put tho things In his
hand pointing down the street as if
to indicate that she had brought the
th ngs from the buy He seemed to
understand took her hand and raised
it to his lips; the action was so simple
bo graceful thKt she felt ashamed and
ran up the stairs to her own room.

him standing outside his dnr He
bowed and Fmiletl opened the door
and showed Ills various purchases on
the table. He had evidently found
bh way round to the shops.
She went up the stairs feeling tho
least little bit disappointed that ho
did not require her help any more-.
He seemed different from tho jaded
vulgar men and women sho came in
contact with in her city life Tho air
of the fields seemed to cling to him

the weary stairs how sweet the conn-
trj must bo looking now. Something
was on her tabic a little sketch of a
Mvecp of wldo hills with fir forests
clinging to their sides a little cluster
of houses with wide overhanging
roofs and shutters to tho windows.
A figure was standing iu the doorway
of ono of the houses.
"That is his house" said Jeanio to
herself ''What a funny thing to do
to give me a picture of it! I wish I
could send him back ono of Loch Awo
and our house upon the bmus."
Tho next day was Sunday; sho
usually pasted tho morning in bed
tired out with her week's r?orlc When
she came down about t?o middle of
tho day sho met him coming In evi-
dently In his Sunday host. Could ho
have been to church? Well It was
clear that ho had not learned tho
manners of Eureka court yet. Sho
tried to express her thanks by looks
and smiles. Ho seemed to under-
stand and laughed and then sho felt
with n quick touch of dismay that ho
glanced In surprise at her unIdy
dress nnd towzlcd hair.
They did not meet again tJurlnj tho
week but next Sunday utorntnj found
Jeanie with her hair oat of papers
nnd her hands washed; sho was loiter-
ing at the street corner when ho came
back in his spruce clothes. Sho gavo
htm a port nod; she felt annoyed with
him for some unknown reasou and that
evening made herself as resplendent
as possible in her cheap gaudy Jlnery.
"Ho shall see that I can bo smart
too" sho thought and tossed her head
as he appeared.
He stooped and drawing a note-
book from his pocket rapidly sketched
ti church-front upon It. She shook
her head. He looked puzzled; then
his quick fingers drew tho outsldo of
one of the commonest typo of meet
hig-houses. Sho shook her head again
and moved otT.
Tho weather becamo very hot.
Jeanie drooped more and more In tlo
unhealthy workroom nnd stuffy
streets. He seemed to notlco it for
on Saturday night sho found a draw-
ing ot trees and a path and figures
walking about and underneath tho
figures 3. 30. Could ho bo asking her to
go for a walk? She waited in to see.
At 2:30 a knock came nt her door.
There he as with his square ugly
good-natured face smiling at ho r
she felt awkward going down tho
stairs with him. Hut that walk did
not take place. The smart tie around
her neck had been tho price of her
dinner; sho turned faint and reeled
then sat down on tho stairs and burst
Into tears. She hardly knew if she
was ve.ed or pleased to find herself
picked up like u baby and carried up
to her own room and laid upon her
Ho went out. In a few minutes she
heard her door opn and something
pushed along tho iloor. It was a
Httlo jug of hot coffeo and milk and a
plate of German roles. Tho noxt day
another picture was loft. It repre-
sented a largo workshop with men
sitting at tables all busily engaged
over some mechanical work; under-
neath was written the figures 30s.
With unskillful fingers she drew an
outllno of a coat and waistcoat and
a needle and thread and posted it as
his door as sho went out; but
she had to come back again sho was
so ill and all day sho lay there alone
waiting for what was the only friend-
ly signal in the world to hcr.tho scrap
of paper of the foreign artist.
She heard it pushed under tho door
at last and feebly rose and gropod
for it. Her head was throbbing so
that sho could scarcely sne that it con-
tained a wholo line of portraits an
elderly man and woman and younger
faces among whir h was his own. Ills
family doubtles. Sho heard him in
the morning come up again and then
sho heard 1 '.in no more for tho fover
seized upon her and when next sho
woke to consciousness sho was lying
uppii a hospital bed. I'or days she
was too weak to speak or think but
when she was able ono of tho nurses
asked her If she would like to see
some papers which had been brought
to the hospital for her and tho nurso
spread them out bofore her.
Tho first was of a man following a
stretcher through tho streets. Then
tho same man sitting alone in a soli-
tary room with his head bowod upon
his hand and weeping. Tho next tho
same man at a door evidently asking
questions of a porter within. Tho
next tho man was beside a bed on
which lay a deathlike figure.
"Has he becu to seo mo?"
"Yes it was when wo thought you
were dying ho came every day but
we could not tell him anything no
ono could speak his language but at
last we found it was Wendlsh from
tho borders of Saxony and IJohemla
and one of tho doctors hero got him a
book in it by which ho could study
English You will seo by tho
Tho next ono represented the man
with tho hook In his hand.
"See this Is tho last" said tho
nurse and as sho held it up sho
laughed. Ituwas the man $n ono knee
before a girl Jennie iu her outrage-
ous hat; but there was In a llttlo
sketch up in tho right-hand corner
as if It was yet In tho distance the
same llttlo village with tho pine
forests around and two figures tho
man and Jeanie walked arm in nrm
up tho village street. Tho nurso held
her sides for laughing.
"It's the funniest thing I ever saw
in my life!" sho said.
Jeanie gathered her papers together
with some dlcnlty.
"I don't call it funny" sho said. "I
I think it just the nicest thing that
ever was done to any girl."
"My loofel" said a voice at her side
and there was tho man. Jeanie gavo a
"My loofel" said tho man again; "it
Is my first Engleesh to you and it
will bo ray last. My loofel"
And Jeanie with all tho dreams ot
her girlhood back upon her put her
arms round his neck nnd sobbing
said: "And I don't oven know your
name but I don't caro for anything
in the world but you." N.Y. Tribune
