AN AUTHOK'S IKROB, Raymond Bose sat jn. hia eonifortabla after breakfas'". ch,a.:jr Treading his after breakfasf; ge^gpaper. All his surroundings denoted comfort.. Be was a, bachelor of 85 years.. His dark and rather- large face heamed; with the kindliness -which comes of being thoroughly comfortable. He was neither thin nor stout. His frame had just contrived to hit that happy medium which is styled "comfortable." -He felt himself "a success—in literature. At Stj Ms position was,assured, so "3§ junst, at" any rate, have been a •moderate success. He wrote when and what he pleased. Jnst now he had completed a volume of short stories. In. fact, Eaymond was one of those feligiton? men who have in their life everything that they want—save one thing, and they don't know what that is. So Eaymond Rose read his morning paper, glanced around his own comfortable apartment, sighed and frowned. Then, bethinking himself of his volnme of short stories, he turned again to the newspaper and studied the advertisement sheet. Typewriting done for authors and others at the rate of 8d. per 1,000 \5-0.rds; paper found. Apply Miss G. Eamsay, 3 Nothercourt Ter^ race, N. W. "Cheap j" muttered Raymond. "Distinctly •cheap! Think I'll try it." Then he began to wonder in his nsnal way as to what Miss G. Ramsay looked like, and whether Nethercourfc- Terrace was shabbily genteel or dirtily slumlike. "B's almost like 'sweating,'" he murmured. "I suppose she is hard np. Wants work badly perhaps. The price does seem fearfully low all the same. Ah, well, 'tis the same for me as for any one else." Pxom whieh it rn.ay- bo deduced that if Raymond's, talents were a little above the ayerage his philanthropy was quite normal. Not that he was mean. No She ever thought of calling him that. Only his enemies dared to hint that he was "close." He was merely the ordinary English business man. He sat him down before a desk and penned a note; which be addressed to Miss G. Ramsay of Netherconrt Terrace.' T*ie missive contained a request to he informed whether Miss Bamsay conld undertake to typewrite Mr. Rose's "Volume of Short Stories" for immediate publication. Then with eased mind he proceeded to forget all about Miss Ramsay, Nethercourt Terrace and the ^ exigencies of the hard pressed typist. Some letters had to be answered, proofs corrected and one newspaper article written. Having accomplished theso various tasks, he partook of a light luncheon, walked a little by way of exercise, smoked, and finally, as evening drew on, settled himself comfortably in his comfortable chair and looked over his manuscript stories. One or two required more alteration and addition than he had given, thero. One, he thought, woulc( haye. to be rewritten. ■ The rest were good enough for his purpose, which, after all, was to mane an lucerne, so he tqld himself. ffbey were not great worts. Critics would style them "fair, wholesome mediocrity," Friends would smile and prophesy their deservedly popular reception. Then Raymond Rose went to hed and slept the sleep of the highly respectable. As has been'before observed, he was a comfortable man, reciting little of the future and not at all "of the past. Unrealized hopes, ambitions, aspirations were nothing to him. "They are fulfilled," he would have told himself bad he recalled, them, which he didn't, "and because they are not fulfilled in the precise way in which I then hoped that they would be I cannot sincerely grieve. Circumstances mold the man. He is a mere puppet, swayed by their force. If I am less than I should be, blame flattery aad fortune, not me. I am but an instrument in their hands." Which is the way in which many sophistical persons avoid'similar conscience priclring difficulties. The next morning he got up, breakfasted and read the morning paper, as was his wont. Then he turned once mora to his short stories. Did'he feel seedy this morning? Had the weather depressed him, or what was the matter? Certainly his work seemed far less satisfactory than he had ever previously found it. To his senses, refreshed by a night's rest, these stories appeared weak and dull. Why had he never noticed these things before, or, rather, why should he have noticed them now, at the eleventh hour? This sudden consciousness was most inconvenient. "Miss Ramsay,'sir,'.' suddenly said his housekeeper from the doorway. Raymond Rose turned in his chair, none too pleased at the interruption. "Thank you," he said, and stared— stared at his'visitor, wondering for the moment what her business with him could be. Mechanically he placed a chair for her. "Ihave come about some typewriting, " said she hesitatingly. Raymond started. He remembered now. This, however, was not the kind of typewriter with whom he usually dealt. Two women who had done work for him were angular and hard featured, abrupt in manner and as careworn as they could be. Miss Ramsay was a mere girl, well dressed, slight of figure and prepossessing of face.. Her complexion was good, her small mouth prettily formed, her eyes large and lustrous, her hair a pretty brown color. Raymond found himself noting aH these points about his new typewriter. Suddenly he awoke to the fact that she was waiting for him to speak. "Yes,." he said, "I require a volume of short stories typewritten. Unfortunately, '' he added,recalling his thoughts of a few minutes ago, "they are not quite ready. More than one will want doctoring if not rewriting." "I might take them one by one," suggested Miss Ramsay. "Thatwould save time. If you have one ready"— "Yes, thatwill be our best plan," interrupted Raymond. "And shall I do the work here or at home?" she asked. '' Which would he the more convenient for you?" inquired Raymond, trying to stifle his personal inclination as regards the matter. "If you will show me your writing— that is, your MS," said she frankly, "I can tell you. If it is difficult, I would hetter come here. If easy"— "It is rather difficult," returned the other. "Perhaps you would better come and do thework here," he added, with quite unconscious eagerness. "The mornings would suit me hest.'' "Very well," shesaid. "Good morning. I will be here tomorrow." The doorclosed behind her. Raymond Rose tried to settle down to work again, but he failed—miserably. Thoughts would not come. The pen scratched and spluttered like a thing in a bad temper. Each story, as he tackled it, grew worse under his alterations. However, he made a desperate effort and- completed one ready for the morrow's typewriting. Then he got tip and went for a walk, wondering what had come to him. The visit of the morning would recur to his mind. Nevertheless, as became a bachelor of 30, he refused to acknowledge that his comfortableness had been in any way disturbed by it. "Absurd!" muttered ha "The fact is, I want a little change—change * of air, change of scenery, change of people, change of life." The last was quite an afterthought. The next morning Miss G. Ramsay arrived, typewriter and alL Raymond gave her the story. She read it through and prepared to set to work "What do you think of it?" asked Raymond. She laughed—very pleasantly. "At any rate, it is not'sex maniacal,' " she said. "No," replied he. "I am glad it is not,'' and began his own work. He thought that she did her typewriting very welL "When the story was finished, he took the liberty of telling her that the work was more than satisfactory. She only replied that she was pleased to hear him say sa After her departure he found himself wondering whether the Q before her surname stood for Qraea or Georgina. In the days which followed he learned a good deal of her history. She had come to London with her "brother, who was a clerk in a broker's office and received an annual stipend of £80. On this and. on. what she could earn, they were dependent for their living, for the parents had died, leaving them penniless. It was a common enough tale, yet Raymond Rose considered it remarkably interesting. He always asked her what she thought about a story. "Miss Ramsay often gave Min valuable suggestions," so he told his friends. "I think that your stories improve," observed Miss Bamsay one morning. "You seemtp probe human nature more than you d.;dj- and your sentiment is not so artificial." "That is due to yonr influence," he replied gallantly and sincerely. The dark, lustrous eyes looked up at him and her face assumed,a half frightened expression. Perhaps she caught the true inwardness of his words. At any rate that glance threw Raymond Bose into ecstasy. No longer did he doubt his own feelings. The same evening he pondered deeply. Here was a man, with everything to recommend him—a large income, an unimpeachable character, a kindly disposition, a heart filled to the brim with love. And she—a typist in straitened circumstances, of quite unknown origin, so far as the world was concerned. True, her brother presented rather an obstacle, hut then— The picture of the brother faded from his mind. He saw himself wedded to a pretty wife, his old rooms cheered and brightened by her presence, the stale order of things abolished, the opening of new pastures warmed by the dual warmth of kindred souls. Then, moved by a sudden impulse, he sat down and wrote a story. He wrote of a man, noble and good, to whom honor, fame, riches came like the sweet rain from heaven. The man lived, prospered and was comfortable. Ho felt, however, that a void existed in his life. He knew not its nature, nor how to fill it. Then came a woman, Bucklen's Arnica S ave.
