PAN IN LOVE
HERE was a garden. It was a superbly congenial
garden, but drenched with somber traditions. There
was a fairy in the garden, perched on the head of a
bronze idol and steadily peeringat a slippery, green frog
on a lily pad. The frog stared back with silly, blinking
A scornful sun sat mockingly upon the tired hills.
flinging his burning vanity across the indifferent skies.
The fairy was Pan, fiery tempestuous Pan! What
was he doing in the garden? The idol was silent as the
Sphinx. The jade pool whispered nothing. But there
was an answer in the face of Pan: in the tiny, wizeuned
face of Pan: in the little, glittering eyes. Pan was in love
with a Mortal! What could be more tragically romantic?
. Q . . . . 1 1 . Q Q f Q
The moon emptied a basket of silvery beams into the
lap of the garden. Pan was still there, brooding on the
shadowy idol. The frog was gone. A shadow slipped
into the garden and the eyes of the fairy loved. The
shadow was a Princess-a Princess with dark, slanting
eyes and hair like foamy sunbeams, clustered. She was
ecstasy of Youth, trembling in the haunting sweetness
like a reed.
She touched the idol. lt was enchanted. She laughed
in delight, teeth gleaming. She danced in delight, feet
gleaming. Pan, in glee, danced with her. Cunning Pan!
His tiny hands caressed her cheek-her cheek, that
glowed like a sun-kissed poppy. At last, she fell, ex-
hausted, into the sweet, wet grass. She dreamed of rain
that cooled her face: tiny, silvery raindrops. But it
wasn't rain. It was the kisses of Pan-the kisses and the
laughter of Pan.
. . . . . . . . f . . . .
A nightingale sings the story yet in the old garden. The
idol is still there, symbolical of the mysticism of centuries.
But Pan and the Princess are gone. Pan dwells on for-
ever in the forest and the Princess is-dead.

Full of joy and knowing that the whole world envied
him, he went to bed. The next morning he got up and
found that the boat was still moving. He had a rather
sinking feeling, and was undecided whether to go to the
dining room or to go up on deck. As he reached the
dining room door, he suddenly decided-the deck! Well
-he envied the whole world now. Maybe he could have
gotten as good a job on land after all.
The days rolled by, and the sun became warmer and
warmer. Heat and water! Heat and water! Oh for the
sight of land. Any little hunk would do!
Almost exasperated and on the verge of ending it all,
Windy reclined in a steamer deck chair, diligently perus-
ing a pocket edition of Avent's "Beginning Teaching."
Strange to say, for the first time he felt a peculiar need of
inspiration from that source.
"Eh? What was that? Did somebody say Cortical
Islands? Where the dickens are my spy glasses?"
He dashed downstairs to get his hat, and, incidentally
forgot all about his coat. It was so hot that coats made
unpleasant thinking anyhow!
Disappointment number one! The chairman of the
school board was not there to meet him. Humph! Just
an oversight, probably! That school board was most
likely very busy anyhow.
"Queer-looking village, what? No houses! Where the
deuce do people live? In those straw stacks? Must be
some wild place! All these palm trees and everything
make me think of cannibals. Hope I'm not the treat.
Anyhow they said something about a salary. I crave
food! Ah! here is a place where there might be some
people, or does that smoke mean a straw stack's on fire?
Guess I'll inquire." CKnock! Knockll
A slouchy-looking woman in a shredded-wheat dress
answered his summons. After giving him the once-over
she grunted, "Huh?"
