DEPUTATIONS-WITH A DIFFERENCE

a fourth bides his time, a fifth seeks consolation elsewhere, a sixth buries himself in work or dissipation. Hughie, who cherished a theory that everything ultimately comes right in this world provided you hold on long enough, and that when in doubt a man should -stand by the Day's Work and await instructions," like Kipling's Bridge Builders, had gone steadily on, because it was his nature so to do. It was uphill work at present-a mechanical perfunctory business, with no reward or alleviation in sight,-but he was determined to go on doing his duty by Joan to the best of his ability, and combine so far as he was able the incompatible roles of stern guardian, undesired suitor, and-to him most phradoxical of all-familiar friend.
For there was no doubt that Joan liked him. She trusted him, consulted him-yea, obeyed him, even when he contradicted her most preposterous utterances and put down a heavy foot upon her most cherished enterprises. For this he did without flinching. The fact that he was a failure as a lover seemed to be no reason why he should fail as a guardian.
Not that Joan submitted readily to his righne. To Hughie's essentially masculine mind her changes of attitude were a complete mystery. They seemed to have no logical sequence or connection. She would avoid him or seek him out with equal unexpectedness. She might be hopelessly obstinate or disarmingly docile. One day she would behave
