THE QUIIAL 5
L I T E R A R Y
Remodeled in Vain
t By RIAXINE ArNEs
OUNG Dr. Jim Rogers was rush-
ing Edythe Simmons. In a small
town like Harding, everyone knew
it in a few days. Friends greeted him
more jovially than usual, and with a re-
mark about Edythe that usually made
Jim get suspiciously red around his ears.
Ile used to sit at his window for hours
in the evenings Cwhen he was not at
Edythe'sD and dream about her. A pie-
ture of her was propped up beside him,
and he adored it. It didn 't matter to
him that it was originally a part of a
group picture in the town newspaper,
and though the other faces were cut
away, two organdie-clad elbows prodded
Edythe painfully from either side, and
the face of a venerable old gent was
visible over her left shoulder. But no
valuable portrait with a master 's signa-
ture could be more prized.
But tonight, tonight he was going to
call on Edythe. And did he not drive
a spirited young horse. and a shiny blaek
buggy, rented from the village stable?
And look, beside him on the seat there
reposed a huge three-pound box of
candy. adorned with blue tulle ribbons
and clad in snowy tissue paper.
On the way out he reviewed and ana-
lyzed the brilliant and witty speeches he
would nonchalantly deliver at the right
moments. Surely a gay and frivolous
girl,like Edythe would desire a young
man that was peppy, and full of zest.
All right, if that was the type she pre-
ferred,-then that was the type he 'd be.
Naturally being reticent and thoughtful,
he should be more joeose. and lawgh
more. to hold her attention.
Faint heart ne 'er won fair lady.
That quotation had lately become one of
his favorite mottoes, and at the party
two weeks ago he had been able to talk
a little more, laugh a little more than
usualg and for the first. time, Edythe had
noticed him. And with that little en-
couragement he had, according to later
testimonies, 'tshined right up to her.
Now he was her f'steady.
But was her interest not beginning to
wane? Had he not fallen back into his
old rut of listening instead of being
listened to, of being a spectator instead
of the one observed, of always being a
looker on? Well, tonight was tonight.
and he would make up for past dullness.
And he did. At just the right moment
he said the right thing, made just the
right remark, gave just the right compli-
ment- when presenting the candy, that
made her turn and blush prettily. ln
fact, he was quite loquaeious and gay
and laughing. Possibly a little too much.
And when he left, at 10:30, he knew
that she had bee11 sorry to see him leave.
even if her folks had not shared her sor-
row quite so much.
But all good things must have an end,
or at least an intermission. The next
day Jim received a telegram that his
au11t was quite ill, and would he please
come at once? But before he left, he met
Edythe and explained his absence-to-be,
and he promised: I'l1 write to you
every single day. P And she promised
faithfully to answer every letter.
All the day on the train he kept think-
ing of Edythe. How he loved and
adored her! But it was a bit tiresome
