fessor by the arm. Her bright eyes
viewed him approvingly as he stum
bled through his story.
"Oh, what is a lonely woman with
out a strong, brave man to protect
her?" uttered Mrs. Briggs, and then
flushed peony red at the bold intima
tion, and the professor experienced
new thrills.
What came of it all? What could

and was glad that she had interested
him.
Ten years later it became a regu

the two children nestle up to their
adopted father and beg of him to tell
them the sheet story.
Then Laura, his wife, would go to
the clothes-press and bring out the
cherished sheet. Then the professor
would dramatically don the sheet,
and take up from the mantel the cap

story.
And after that he would say, with

LITTLE PERSON WEARS MUCH
BLACK VELVET RIBBON
By Betty Brown
If you would be truly, really stylish
and dressed up this summer you
must if you are a small person
have a touch of black velvet on your
dress.
It's just as quaint and old-fashioned
as it sounds, but nevertheless
pretty, as you will see from this pic
ture of the pert person in velvet
trimmed frock.
The dress is Roman striped hand
kerchief linen, with the velvet bands
set on the shoulder sleeves and band
ing the bottom of the skirt. Flat little
bows are tacked on every six inches
or so. The big poke bonnet of fine
straw shows the trend of fashion,
for most little girls will be bonneted
this season and the saucy bonnet,
streamers are black velvet.
