"Miriam ih tin- most iwpular girl lti her so:." said a young matron.
"She certaiuh Is,'' ."id another of the crowd of young women who were
tllBCUtalng Mlrii.ni. "And she deserves to be. She'B adorabiy pretty, dresses
axQUisitely, and is so lovable and charming and sunny-tempered, that I don't
wonder every one is figuratively at her feet."
"You should have seen the gifts she received Christmas. I couldn t
bglu to tell you the number of handsome tblnr.i; and in addition, fifty
lionndE of candy from those on th fringe of her acquaintance. She could
havo set up a confectionery shop."
"And it doesn't turn her head a bit, does it?"
"No. it doesn't." . ,
"There s e aide to Miriam, however," spoke up another, thats worth
thinking about. U's not sour grapes on my part, for 1 am very fond of Miriam.
But now and then, I see little strawc of character, that make me wonder just
tflflch way the wind would blow, if sometime a tornado camo along. I often
wonder if popularity is an unmixed good for a gir.1."

very little work. Sho airily writes one or two little things n day, anu
the rest of the time sho dispenses sunshine. Nobody cares They
all like her so much they trot around and do her work, and fairly fight for

their lives to get a chance to walk home with her at ui8M. At five- o c.ocit

And Blank's Is so different from most places, and Miriam Is eo altogether
charming that nothing is said.
"I'm not saying eH this in nny moan way, hut 1 am just wondering
how it will work out. Miriam is lovely and sweet and unselfish at least
that Is the way it seems. If any of the other ladies there are blue, tho first
thing the despondent one knows, a great bunch of violets or sweet peas, or
some other flower Is laid on hor desk. I bellove a girl should be just as

that every' one should worship at her shrine. That's the right of girlhood.
