you. lou know bow inconvenient it

ficiencies will now be supplied as well
for yon as for me.
"Mr. l'rendergast Is not an old man.
On the coutrary, be has the activity
of a man of thirty. Therefore you
will find him useful for an escort, and
as be Is fond of going out you will not
bare to urge bim to go or be bothered
by bis wishing to come away before
the small hours of the morning."
Miss Maryweatber paused in read
ing the letter to make-a remark to
herself. "That's very tbongbtful of
mamma to marry a man between onr
ages who can be useful to both of us."
"Mr. Frendergast." the letter con

Tbe day after its receipt the card of
Archibald l'rendergast was taken up
stairs to Miss Maryweatber, and after
an inspection of herself ln a mirror,
usual to ladles about to receive calls,
she went downstairs and entered the
drawing -room with curious expecta
tion. Agreeably surprised to see a
handsome man who could not possibly
be over twenty-five years old, her face
broke into a smile well calculated to
reassure him that be was welcomed
Into the family. Mr. Trendergast re
flected a smile, and the two sat down
to get acquainted.
"I received mother's letter telling
me all about bow matters stand," said
Miss Mollie. "Of course you know
that so far as I am concerned there is
no sentiment that Is all mother's.
With me It's what I'm going to gain,

"You are very young to be a widow."

"Mother put the best foot forward
ln the matter, didn't she?"
"You mean the best knee forward.
Or, rather, she forgot to mention tbe
knee and tbe cane."
"1 suppose so."
They both smiled.
"1 don't see any way to keep father
from making trouble in your family In
this affair 1 xcept by offering to Join
the party und serve as courier." ;
"That wouldn't do it. A party made
up ot two old persons and two young
ones would be a failure. It an elder

would be unsurd for us to go on such

"My dear," wrote Mrs. Maryweather
a few months after the date of her
first. "I think your treatment of your
mother very shabby Your stepfather
and I did not count on your and bis
son's action at all. We have given up
our Italian trip, but I trust you and
Archie will enjoy yours.
"I dare say you are enjoying your
selves In the galleries of Florence.
Quite a change from the trip that was
expected. You two young persans are
enjoying the wedding Journey that we
two older ones expected to take."
To this letter Mrs. Mollie replied:
"Mother, dear, I have your letter. I
think you and my stepfather are better
off at home. You see. these Italian
bouses, nut being healed, are as cold
as bams. With your rheumatism and
Mr. Prendergast's knee you would be
miserable bere. Archie Joins me la
much love for you both."
