During my slny with them Cousin
Anne was visited by her sister, Mrs
Fro 111 ley.
Mrs. rininley was generally spoken
of ns "a iharacter." nnd she enjoyed
living up to her reputation Her own
rhlldren were all sons, nud she always
tacitly nssumed the absence of daugh
ters to U' n proof of her own superior
good nense, but nnturnlly this state of
things gave her the greater freedom
ut opinion as to now less anmiiiu.e
people should manage theirs The see

I the subject of Nannie
"Anne." said she. pinning the shin
she was making by hand to her Kan
flid stitching energetlially. "wli
hicn't Nannie got koiiic ben us? I've
ucxer Keen a sign of a joung man
nbout the place. What Is the matter'
She Is pretty enough."
Cousin Anne wns writing at a little
tnble. attending to business for the
W. ('. T. U. She did not answer for a
moment, 'lheii she said, a little sillily
"ST Hllen" (ahhievlated form of Sister
Klleiil. "1 don't Intend Nannie to waste
her time on benus. She's got enough
to do nttendlng to her studies. I'm
having her keep them up. I have not
lit her come out ,et."
"Come out! M-m-nil You and I
newr did come out. Anno; but when
we were girls we managed to hau n
mighty good time, and first or Inst
Lalf the young men lu the country wen
courting us. If there Is anything bet
ter worth n girl's while than that, I'xo
tcu-r heard of It."
"I propose that Nannie shall find
things belter woith the while of a
rational being In such n world as this,"
Cousin Anno replied.
"I never heard before tlmt Nannie
or nny other girl or 18 was n rational
being, I pity her If she Is. Do jou
mean bur to be tin old maid?"
Cousin Anno sealed an envelope with
elaborate care. This wns an eson
tlnlly uncomfortable question. Btery
Inbred prejudice nnd inniiy native sen
tlments rose up within her ngnlnst the
suggestion, nud jet every Instinct of
expansion, of moral dignity, of ambi
tion, tied her to the couise she hud
vaguely blocked out, and It was cer
tainly not a part of that programme
that Nannie si.ould inniry soon. Aud
how was It to be supposed that 1110

ing ciealuie Nannie wns to become
could ever ho accommodated within the
matrimonial haihor? Something like
this lu chaotic, dim foim dlstiesscd her
mind, but she i.tuc!; on n stamp wltn
decision and llnnlly said:
"1 don't know whether or not she will
but nmiry. ST I'lleu. but nt least she
shall have my help to become n noble
woman, helping the world onward."
"A noble woman! O l.ordl I'm n
noble woman, Anne, only jott'd never
see it. Just because I've got common
sense, icll. welll Ynul.ee notions
down here must be n mighty sight
worte thau they are nt home, for
somehow or other they do bcem to

by what I hear, befole they go Into the
business of turning the world upside
down Aie you going to mnke a
pieaeher or a W. C. T. U. lecturer out
of Nannie? She's pot such n gift of
.ib she'd do for either."
Dear Couslu Aune's Roman features
were touched with nu Infantile grief,
mid the trvirs came to her Hue eyes us
she said: "I didn't think yon'd cut
make fun of Nannie, ST Ullen. 1
thought you admired her belli,; so
"So I do, so I do, Anne." said the
softened sister, "but that's the ery
reason I don't like to see her spoiled
nnd kept out of her natural nuiuse
meuts. What me you going to do with
her nnyhow, right away, next thing?"
Couslu Anne icsumcd her nlr of dig

"Couslu Antic thinks she will have n

"Upon my word!" Cousin Ellen
nbandoued the shlit and dropped her
hands Into her kip. "Why. the child's
got enough to live on, nud I reckon
that's all she nsks."
Just then Nannie, looking very young
and pink and pretty In her white fiock,
came to the door.

state of the case, met her with ma

aside, closed n door upon us and nsked

was, of coin so. tcirlbly homesick. Ev
ery thllig-our little rooms, our wny of
life, our talk, th veiy outlook from

strange. She was iK'iiutnhed for weeks,
mid her one comfort, her mother's let

fort, for they bristled with questions
as to the progress of her ambitions
for the ftiture. Poor Nannie! I think
nt Inst she began to realize what nn
awful thing It Is to be asked to mnko

worbc than .Miss IlauTsliam's ilemnnd
that her llltle lsiior should play. Hut
Nannie was a bolf contained little soul
aud nt last escaped from her worst
