plied Kathleen, a tall girl of lifteen,
with a pretty, irresolute fa'ce. She;
looked1 wistfully at her questioner's

ribbons and gold buttons. She could
not have imagined greater bliss than
possessing such things herself.
"For the exercises, yes," said Laura.

"You will have two new dresses for

She turned to Joyce-strong. beauti

eyes were now fixed. in some contempt,
upon Junie and Laura.
"Shall you not get twos" persisted
"Oh, if you do--" began Kathleen.
.Joyce had not spoke.n. The whole
question seemed very triv'ial to her.
Not that she did not care for pretty

with her sick mother.

when they were alone.
"Do?" inqluired Joyee, vaguely.
"About the Fourth." samid Kathleen.
"My lawn cost just fifteen cents a yard.

"And you would make her going out

added, "No, dear, don't do that."
They reached Joyce's own home at
that point, and Joyce went in without
waiting for a reply.
"3Iother, carling," she called softly.
as she entered the darkened room, "is

Mrs. Harwood smiled faintly.

The Fourth of July dawned as that
historic day should dawn-showing a
cloudless sky, a blazing sun. Miss
Floyd was in a pleasant tiutter of ex
citement. Her sisters, Mrs. Danes
ford and Mrs. Jerome, sat beside her
near the platform- She felt very
proud of her school. The girls were
charming in their snowy frocks as they
sat, looking like white winged birds,
on the platform.
"That is a lovely child at'the end of
the front row," said Mrs. Danesford
suddenly. "WVho is she?"
"That is Kathleen Hunt," replied
Miss Floyd. "And the dark one next
her' is Joyce Hlarwood. They must
both work soon, for their mothers are
widows and poor. I have given them
their schooling and hope to start them
in some way."'
The exercIses passed off delightfully,
and after them the parents and other
"grown ups" enjoyed the lawn tea.
