Miss Smith. WRITTEN FOR THE TRIBUNE BY ELIZABETH B. WALLING. "By Jove, Annette, she's a daisy! What a firm, grand mouth, none of your buttonholes for her; what a nose—rarest feature In the world to find perfect, too; look at that broad, low forehead—what a backward sweep of hair; no idiot fringe over those eyes. I say, Net, trot her out, will you?" Annette laughed long and merrily, showing a white, even row of teeth. "O, Horace," she said at last, "are you going to add that to the list of your follies, falling in love with a picture? What has become of Miss Vandycke? Where's the divine Flora McKay? Have you so soon gotten over your infatuation for " "Come, old girl, don't rake up the ashes of old flames, dead as door nails every one of'em. 'Rcquiexcat in puce,.'
