.the school bully for annoying me.
He called me up on the phone arid
said he would like to come up last
evening, and I told him te come on.
3ust a little while afterward George
Ransome-telephoned that a party was
'going out for a little ride in his car
and asked me to go along.
" "I would -have more fun with the
party, so I promptly accepted and
then tried to get Henry on the phone.
Could not reach him until 6 o'clock,
and then I told him I was too sick
to see him.
"He answered he would just come
up for a moment. He was so con
cerned about my health that he made
me feel awfully mean for deceiving
"I hardly had time to pwoder my
face and make myself pale and unin

ance with a huge bunch of roses like
these I have on.
"Well, I was nearly crazy for fear
the-bunch would.be coming in before
, I- got rid of him, and all the while I
felt like a nasty little cat, for Henry
was so nice and seemed to be so wor
ried about me, but at last he left and

the powder and get into an outdoor
frock when the honk-honk at the
door told me George was there.

said, with a' ripping laugh as she fin
ished. "You know it was great fun,
just like a play, and to .'put it over'
was the greatest fun of all."" "
. "My dear Mollie, I am afraid you

"Isn't every girl, who can be, some
thing of a flirt?" asked Mollie with
twinkling eyes. "It is the only hope
of matrimonial salvation to sample a
lot of fellows and pick out the one we
ythink will wear best and not fade.
"Many of my friends have taken
men for husbands that I, knew were
shoddy, simply because they were
first -offered, Margie."" Mollie Wav
erly is going to do the picking or her
self , in the marriage, garden.
I did. "not have the heart;, to tell her
that th,e Jgirl- who 'picks one from
many is quite as' often apt to make a
mistake -as the-one-who grabs the
first offered. .
