had flmtlied into ills mind as the clerk stood waiting pencil in hand he liad no idea btmch of violets would make girl look like that why theyre beauts mjucled people entered the shop they were annlewhosent cm ery much absorbed in eacii other much so that they passed martin by though he luul been nonexistent ho knew them both however in fact the girl was lcllu herself oh orchids pleise she was saying in that insistent voice of hers that was so easy to hear even when she jlld not ipiak loudly expect to be snowed under with vloluts grant pollard laughed boisterously say arc you as popular oa all that charlie harrli always sends me violeu en valentine day said leila and tiien have friend in chicago and another in detroit who always send me rtowers ond generally they select violets and shouldnt be surprised to get bunch from martin bruce oh come oif laughed grant old bruce never sent you violets hes scared of girls hes not jxared of mo said leila at least he doesnt act so he looks at me this way sho gave what must have been an amusing demonstration of what la popularly renown as costing sheeps eyes grant roared again and leila joined in hie laughter tne two then moved en out of martins hearing tile clerk came back little out of breath sorry to have kept you wait ing what is the address please martin looked at her blankly what was the addrtiji of course he was not going to send violets to lelln he had known that when he had seen her gaz ing at grant pcllard just as she had uazed at him martin the previous evening if that liad not been enougn lor lum her silly boasting about tlie lolebf she expected mould have taught him hip lesson or months he had ltenjfashioning an image which ne called leila and endowed with graces and reticences to which the real leila was stranger to iilum shall send them please repeated the dlerk patlentlj martin spoke the name ol the first iirl of whom he thought why he thought of her he had no idea mils mary tucker the clerk wrote it doun address please care ol the dixonmannlng com pany seventh floor wilson building do jou wish to enclose card no lie moved touard the door and lie amused voice recalled him is this charge martin came back it is car crimson lianded her bill and escaped into tlu crlspness of the iyjruar night oncv outside he tore the poem to bits martin did considerable thinking be fore lie uent to gleep thut night at hint he taced the fact that he hud been attracted to leila just because she hud wildrose complexion long curling lishpb and us aluujh well iresed because of these uttnictlons lie nu deliberately rlmt his eyes to cert dicta he now sau quite clearly leila collected admirers as some paiple col lect sumpi her prctt cnresslng uu meant an little as kittens purring martin uni not angry utth her but as he lay uukeful in the dark he reallvd hou lucky he had been fortiluae chance the truth had iwen brought home to him before the affair hud gone so far tluit enlightenment would have hurt him desjwrately suddenly martin slurted to laugh me wus thinking pf mary tucker surprise when tlie violets were delivered why lw had plrkrd out mary he hud no idea taken by mi prise as he was he had spoken the first name that came into his head ml is tucker was one of the uenotirupherii at the office pleusuit plain wry silent girl older than him self martin saw her every day und dont know it appeared there was no card and annie laughed guess you know who sent etn all right no really dont know said xiary but she did not speak ojulte so empliat ically as before in sudden consterna tion martin bent over his ledger as the days went by martin wonder ed whether mary tucker really was dif ferent or whether it was only tliat lie was beginning to notice her he luul alunja thought of her rather us one would think of an adding machine very useful hut without personality some times however he surprised her smiling to herself when she spoke to annie ryan or to himself there was real friendliness in her voice one afternoon in march young man called for mary tucker and the two uent away together annie ryan could hardly wait until the door closed be hind them to explain matters saint valentine she said to martin you mean st patrick no mean hes tlie one who sent her violets for valentine martin glanced at the freckled face all aglow with vicarious satisfaction in marys romance where did you get that idea she told me so annie ryan was instantly aware that martin uos interested she found her self saying more than she had intend ed you see they used to be engaged this is sort of secret but of course you wont tell and then they liad falling out she hadnt seen him for two ears and then lie sent her those violets very thoughtful of him yes wasnt it and now well guess theyre nob engaged again but it looks as if they were going to be perhaps so said martin nancom mltally annies chatter left lum with an odd sense of responsibility mary was too nice girl to throw herself away on liar another week went by martin had spent on unusually busy day and had remained quarter of an hour after the others had gone at last he locked the door behind him and walked over to the elevators one elevator was coming up just as another was going down and tlie doors of the two opened simultaneously on seventh floor martin about to step into the downcar drew back suddenly the young man who had called for mary tucker week before stepped from the other car martin waited moment then fal lowed him along the corridor sup pose you wanted to see miss tucker tlie young man turned to face him yes did evidently shes gone yes shes gone replied martin itathcr to ills own surprise then lie heard himself saying by the way id like to ask you about tliosc violets what violets those you sent her you know on valentine day tho young mans tuee went white cant see that its any of your busi ness well if iou ordered her viovb sent here one or the other of us didnt get lib moneys worth the young man did not speak mar tin wilted moment then unlocked the oft ice door let come in minute tlie oung man followed him into the office nd dropped into chair didnt know lie said you mean you
