That afternoon he left the resort with its hundreds of bathers behind and strolled far up the Broad Beach that sloped up from the sea to the foot of i Low Bluff along which was a Row of summer houses. Panama in hand he breathed deep of the line sea air and let the brisk Breeze blow the warm sunlight through his Light hair pausing before a great log that had been Hung High on the Shore during some storm. And finally with a Little sigh of Content lie Laid himself Down on the Sand in the strip of Shade cast by the log and dozed off to sleep. Presently Down the Long flight of Stone Steps that led from one of the houses on the Bluff a Short distance beyond flashed a bathing suit seeking the deserted Beach. The bathing suit in question was rather Well filled and its color of Bright Blue was startlingly enhanced by the flaming Scarlet of the Jaunty Cap. The Young person who occupied the colourful equipment waved Hei arms joyously at her temporary Freedom from conventional restraint and raced Down the Beach. However Holbrooke missed All of this for he was peacefully sleeping on the farther Side of the log which of could see his daughter. St acted the path of the running girl without hesitation she leaped High in the air in order to Clear the log. Too late she saw with consternation the Man who slept on unconscious of his Fate and in a frenzy she Flung out her feet in an Effort to keep from Landing on him thereby depositing her 124 pounds in a sitting position right i the Center of Bis unprotected Chest. At that inauspicious but identical moment of concussion Holbrooke was busily engaged in dreaming himself a dream wherein he had just slowed through Yale s Iron Clad defense for a five Yard gain and painfully he gasped in a Cross Between a groan and a curse "do-.vn, you Rummy Down get off my Chest you big cheese he moved his arms feebly and then his half open eyes caught sight of a pair of smooth round Mue stockinged Ankles. Some quarterback in he murmured and his bewildered glance moved on up stopping at the wide grown eyes that stared into his from under the Scarlet Cap. She Slid to her Knees in the Sand beside him and burst into a torrent of Spanish Contri Tely patting the place she had just vacated. It is with so much regret that i sit on you she pleaded.

Whereat the recent bombardment sat Back on her feet and giggled hysterically. I i think for one Long time i have billed you dead you Fonny Man she said in English. Then her face flamed with sudden color. It is not that i am not sorry she bubbled but i am so excited for the first time i sit on a by this time Holbrooke had gained sufficiently in health to be Able to sit up with his Back against the log and she sat facing him every now and then rising up anxiously on her Knees to Peep Over the log toward the House. She chattered and talked half the time forgetting herself and slipping into Spanish while Holbrooke Tensed her politely till finally there came a Call from the direction of the House. Holbrooke started to Rise but the Gitl looked at blk protest ugly. Canne Nulta 1" the Call was repeated. It to what you Call toy auntie sold the girl demurely but with sparkling / i shall go but you Aust not be seen by her. For me to talk to a Niau without her to hear what i say it is . Site laughed Lis she Slid Over the log at the same. Time waving toward the House and then looking Back Over the log at Holbrooke she reached Down impulsively and gave a Little caressing Pat and was gone. For several Days Holbrooke haunted the Bench in the Vicinity of the fateful log hut Carmencita returned not. He had about despaired of seeing her again and was on the Point of making a canvass of the neighbourhood in order to find her when one Day As he strolled along the Street that led Down to the sea a girl tripped out of a Little gift shop some distance ahead of him and joined an elderly Man who waited for her. Together the two walked on ahead and just As Holbrooke came abreast of the shop the clerk came running out and called after the two who had by this time gone some distance Down the Street. Sonora to your change called Tho clerk. You forgot your change 1" i dare not leave the shop he complained to Holbrooke. I know them offered Holbrooke.

Down on the Bluff silhouetted against the silvered water he could see his daughter with Holbrooke the likable Young american and it is to be feared that he sighed a Little this famous Diplomat Over his lost youth. An exclamation of indignant and outraged protest interrupted his revery and he turned to face ills sister the aunt and Duenna of Carmencita. Alone they Are and he makes love to her she said tensely. And you my brother permit it your own daughter the ambassador looked Back toward the couple. Holbrooke had Carmencita by the hand and Wais drawing her toward him.

When we Bear in mind that the ancients were in the habit of producing big things the pyramids the colossus of Rhodes the Hundred feet Long painting of Nero vast circuses etc., there seems to be no Good ground for doubting that they built big ships and not a few of them nor merely for show. There must have been a great Deal of maritime activity during the centuries immediately preceding and following the beginning of our Era and not a few projects of importance designed to facilitate navigation were launched. The vain attempt to Cut through the isthmus of Corinth is often referred to but the Effort made by Nero to create a navigable canal from the Lake Avernus to the Mouth of the tiber is less dwelt upon. Tacitus tells us of this and in such Fash Ion that the attentive Reader has the suspicion aroused in his mind that the sins of that emperor were More against the taxpayers of Rome than of the sort usually attributed to him. Another Shade. In Harper s Bazar appears a Story said to be told by a Young widow employed in the English War office.
