Meliuda had come from up stale.
Before her arrival In the hip. bustling
city she had studied stenography and
typewriting in an up state business
college. She was a-good stenographer
too. and would have done well in the
city if she had stuck to sfenogfaphic
pot hooks and curlycues.
Rut Melindu would read novels and
whe'n she had secured a position and
settled herself iu n- hall room at the
working girls' dub the novel habit re
asserted itself more strongly than ever.
this lwrhaps because there was a sec-
ondhand bookstore just" around the
corner where she could buy novels
for to cents and exchange them for
different ones by paying Just 2 cents
more. In fact.. it was a. circulating li
brary system that made' Melinda feel
particularly elegant and Independent
and saved her a trlwevklj trip to the
city library n mile nway-
Melinda did not care much for the
glrlrf she. met at the working girls'
club. ' They talked" shop " an shirt
waists and most of. them worked Jn
factories at less salary than .Melinda
.received. She would "not have remain-
ed at the club only .she had to send
her widowed wot her some money
every wee'k. and' the working girls'
club was a stern necessity hi the ad-
justment of her tinances Melinda was
also a Jlttle bored with conversation
about idiirt waists because '-she had
to make the ones she had brought
from home do her all season. So what
was the use of discussing bargain
counter styles in blouses?
It was much more fun to read nov-
cls particularly the sort of novels
most common nt the secondhand book-
shop stories of English working lassies
and chivalrous lords and dukes who.
abandoned scented drawing rooms and
red coated hunting fields to besiege
the hearts of the forementioned honest
Just about the time that Melinda had
nbsorlxid her three hundred and forty-
ninth novel the bookkeeper gave her a
couple of passes for the theater. It
was just his luck he explained that
the. baby had the whooping cough
when those passes came his .way but
of course he 'wouldn't leave his wife
alone of an evening Under such cir-
cumstances. Melinda did not stop to
consider that in a humble twentieth
century fashion this was rather a
knightly thing for an underpaid book-
keeper to do. but she took the theater
tickets gratefully and invited the as .
sistant matron at the home to acooin
pany her to the theater. . .
It was a wonderful play called "The
Road to Yesterday." and the natural
climax of .Melindn's course In novel
rending for In it- a young girl and her
lover and many other-folk were trans
ported back JtK" years and did all the
things of which -one reads in novels
centuries otd. Its 'moral- or one of
them was that the old spirit of knipht-
hood lived in ..the - twentieth ' centurv
jioonlit i.'nd sr'"fcUH?- after a day or
relentlesG heat and humidity and not
a. night for disaster at all. But one
overtook them a fiery .sheet of flame
beside which the sun's rays of the day
Just closed were merciful. Melinda
heard just one long hoarse cry saw
one great flash of lighr felt an aim
jerk her to her feet aud then every-
thing was blank. This may hav? been
because the day had been so long and
hard or because. the girl had never In
nil her readliKt days thought of what
one ought to do when fire broke out on
n crowded" boat.
Something -cool and lovely was 1rie-
kling on her forehead her eyes her
cheeks her lips. -.She was floating on
a cloud. . No she was lying on wet
sand and the assistant matron was
"No. no. she's not hurt. It was just
the shock. Khe Will be all right in. a
minute. But you you wonderful
wonderful boy to save us both!".
Oh. yes. the tire the trampling feer
the brief glimpse Into the great beyond
she remembered It all now. And
some one had saved them. There was
si real knight In New York after all.
She wanted to open her eyes and see
him. but the lids were so heavy so
heavy. But she knew he was .straight
ami tall and dark ami pale and slen-
der. All knights must be. And then
the other voice said brokenly:
"Ynti know I never had a chance to
teil her I loved 'her. Slie was so back-
ward :iud hy and always sccs.jcd to
be looking rls;ht past the; Uie "ain't
like ;ii!u-r girls- I knowand you're
sure slH-'O'come around all right."
Something- in the voice made Melln-
da's e.-.elids -turn light ag.iin. They
popped oi-eri; and she looked straight
into iiie anxious-eyes of" the elevator
.boy. . -.'
"Oh. then it wasn't a knight after
all.'" I'.e murmured as the assistant
iu::r.n begin to clj'afe. her hands once
Melinda was sitting on tht edge of
the ln'd In tlie assistant matron's room.
"I suppose they don't have to be tall
and slender and pale aud Interesting if
their he.irtM are nil right and knightly.
And Billy's heart Is all right. He don't
have lo run an elevator you know.
His mother has quite a little money
but he's going to 1k an electrical en-
gineer or superintendent of big build-
ing's or-soniethlng of that sort and he
says he wants to know everything
from running elevators to.runnlng men.
and then he can support me and mam
ma too. But when Ills mother came in
to see me today she patted my hand
and kissed me oti both cheeks and said
there was 'no reason whv B'llv and I
hnuld have to 'wilt that. long. Itccausc
she .thought there was love enough in
my In-art to keep two mothers going.
ntid she had u- daughter. She's je.st
lovely. Iris mother Is. and yo'uld know
she was Jist the sort whose son would f
be a knight."
- n 1 the assistant matron -remembered
a stern white face she had ceeii
for juft an Instant 'on that dreadful
riluht. felt once jmre the' grip of Ids
fin:. strong hand . and ' .murmured
"Yes. of such .-stock do real knfghts
spring." ' .
