Joyce's Declaration of Independence
"Now, Isn't that pink lovely!"
A merry group of girls were chatterlng on the
lawn of Miss Floyd's Academy for Girls on a
brlght morning ln June. School was Just over, and
they were planning great thlngs for the Fourth
of July, when Miss Floyd held her commencement
"Of course. we'll wear white for the exercises,"

we can have what we like for the reception ln
the evening. I shall coax mamma lnto gettlng me

"I'll havo the ci_pe de chlne I told you of," de?
cided Laura Dean. a gypsy beauty of sixteen.
"Do you remember that Miss Floyd asked us not
to buy expenslve dresses?" Beulah Wllson remlnded
them. "She said she didn't wish Joyce Harwood
and Kathleen Hunt to feel uncomfortable'"
June tossed her head.
"I really cannot dresa down to Miss Floyd's

who could with the utmost difflculty present a
neat and freah appearance.
"Blue for you, June; leave the pink for me,"
cried Laura "Do have pale green. Beulah."
"1 shall have a new white lawn for the Fourth,"
replied Beulah, flrmly. "I think it's absurd to have
two dresses for what is, after all. one occasion."
"Here come Joyce and Kathleen." remarked
"Wero talklng of our commencement dresses,
The words were not without malice. Both Joyce
and Kathleen had made June feel small in the
"I think my dress is bought," replied Kathleen,
a tall girl of fifteen. with a pretty, Irresolute face.
She looked wisffully at her questloner's dainty
lawn, lnaet with laee, her rich ribbons and gold
buttons. She could not have imagined greater bliss
than poseessing such thlngs herself.
"For the exercises. yes." said I_?iura. "But we
mean to wear eolors in the evening."
Kathleen almost turned pale.
"You will have two new dresses for commence?

She turned to Joyce?strong. beautiful Joyce.
whom no one ever snubbed or put down. and whose
clear, dark eyes were now flxed. in some contempt,
upon June and Laura.
"Shall you not get two, Kathleen?" persisted June.
"Oh, if you do-" began Kathleen. helpleasly.
Joyce had not spoken. The whole question
seemed very trivial to her. Not that she did not
care for pretty things. but just now her thoughts
were with her sick mother.
"This ls an important occasion." struck in Laura,
returning to the charge. "Miss Floyd's two mar?
ried slsters will be here. and she wlll want every

"And alone in the world?widows and childless,"
remarked Joyce. "It seems to me wealth is not

"What shall we do?" asked Kathleen. when they
"Do?" inqulred Joyce. vaguely.
"About the Pourth." said Kathleen. "My lawn

know you can't have two."

a sllce of golden brown toast and a cup of fragrant
"Now, try this," she snid, coaxingly. "Oh.
mother mine, I do wish you'd consent to my givlng
up school and gettlng some work."
"We will see after the Fourth," sald Mrs. Har
wood. "Now, dear, get your own luncheon while
I tfke a nap."
The Fourth of July dawned as that historlc day
should dawn?showing a tioudless sky, a blazlng
sun. Miss Floyd was in a pleasant flutter of ex
citement. Her sisters, Mrs. Danesford 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. "Who ls
"That ls Kathleen Hunt," replied Miss Floyd.
"And the dark one next her is Joyce Harwood.
They must both work soon. for their nmthers are
wldows and poor. I have given them their school
lng and hope to start them in some way."
The exercises passed off delightfully, and after
them tho parents and other "grown ups" enjoyed
the lawn tea But the girls hurried home to
change their dresses or freshen up for the even?
It was a litti*. after dusk. The dim streets grew
ever and again momentarilv brilliant with the
light of Roman candles or tlie radiance of Cath
eiine wheels. The eheerful "pop" of countless
crackers resoundod through the air.
The reception was in full swing when Mrs.
Danesford .ought a moment's rest and ouiet in
the breakfast room. A screen had been pushed
near an open wlndow, and she sat down behind lt.
Sh?- had determined to take Kathleen Hunt home
with her, if she would oome, as reader and com?
panion. She would offer tbe widowed mother a
little cottage mar h*r own magnificent mansion
on the banks of the Hudson. The daughter should
lu- hers by day. the real mother's by night.
"Try it," Mrs. Jerotoe bad aaid. ""If the plan
sueceeds l may try the other."
A group of sirls. merry, chattering, flocked into
rn. A torn skirt seemed td have been the
of their <?.>mi^.s?. Mrs. Danesford did not
move, thinking they would go out in a moment.
"Did you see tbat dress <>f Joyce's?" demanded
June. "Her last summer's one. and darned, at
"Kathleen's li ^ked about 10 cents a yard," added
Laura. "lf they're as poor _? that comes to they

She stopped abruptiy. Mrs. Dan*-sford thought at
first that tbey bad seen her behind the screen.
but ihe silence was caused by the entrance of
Joyce and Kathleen.
"We couldn't help hearing you," r-rn.trked Joyce.
"You 1 ave 'A.. right to decide that we are poor
??- we don't dress as you do," said Kathleen.
"Som? people think it in bad taste to dress much
before you come out."
Mrs. Danesford could see them all?Joyce and
Kathleen. ln their shabby frocks. contrasting so
pamfullv with the chiffons and crepe de chines of
the others. But Joyce stood. erect and proud, her
eyes aglow. Laura and June looked at them
"I fully admit it was no business of mine." re?
plied June icily.
"You are right?it ls no business of yours." here
struck in Joyce. "And. for my part. it does not
matter to me at all that you should know we aro
poor, very poor. Poverty is no disgrace. This ls
the Fourth of July," ahe went on, her color rtsing.
"It ls the annlversary of the day when our fathera
shook off unjust and galling bondage. Let us,
Kathleen." she turned to her friend, "shake off
