VUions of a lovely pair of slippers, or a "crazy tle," or some other beautiful piece of feminine handiwork floated through George's head as he hied hlmself to the rear end of the store to unravel the mystery. Some way the boys in the store each gave a knowing wink to the other, and ior a moment all customers were forgotten as each oue took a line of march alter George, and about the time he had got the box open they were all there to help him admire. But what was our hero's surprise upon opening the box to flnd a card readiDg: "Compliments of Mr. and Mrs. Grover C."

The boys luid lots of fun over It just the same.
