Tea, come In, Tom. Td like to sit
down and rest a minute." '
The bright-eyed girl In the doorway,
capped, aproned and broom in hand,
smiled invitingly to the yonng man on
the other side of the gate, -who bad
asked If he conld enter. He followed
her Into the house, and she dropped
wearily into a chair.
Tt isn't so much the work," she
went on, "but if I attempt to do a
little clearing out of corners and
throwing away rubbish, then mother
and I get on a war footing at once,
and there's great activity on the firing
line. I declare, she saves up all kinds
of truck, till we might as well start
a junk shop, and done with It"
Mrs. Bliss drifted into the room in
time to hear the latter remark, and re
garded her daughter in good-natured
protest. Nodding to Tom Holmes, she
sa ': '4
notice, Florry, you're pretty glad

things yon need."
Yes, but why save that wooden la
dle ; you don't use it in ten years."
"Well, suppose I don't, when I do
want It Ifs there. It isn't' so much
saving the money, as it is the time It
takes to dress and go out to. buy soma
little thing yon need, and have 'to de

to find that cord, those little tassels,
and that brocade for your dress, aad
that was more than eleven years old."
Tes, I was," admitted Flerry. Tt
gave just the touch I wanted, and I
couldn't have bought it in this little
"So yon see, you'll have to hand it
to your mother, after aJL" said Tom,
who, for obvious reasons, thought It
tactful to keep on the right side ef
Mrs. Bliss. Twish," he went on, "yoa

We must wait a little."
"Tes," he answered In a disappoint
ed tone. T know I'm only a clerk in
alaw office, but m be In that firm yet.
And while we're waiting you may get
tired, and take the fellow that has the
house all ready."
Toml". she cried reproachfully,
"that Isn't worthy of you!"
"On, well, I know Brooke has"
"Brooke 1" she broke In. "Why, he
only just comes here In a friendly
"Tes, but he has money; he has lots
of things I haven't to give you. Tour
mother likes him, and "
"And what I like doesn't count 1" she
laughed teaslngly. "But that Spell
man cottage Is really a nice little place.
I guess Td better start In praying that
you find that deed."
Tom went away downhearted. Her
bantering tone hurt him. He was not
at all sure that Brooke's visits were
only just In "a friendly way.".
It was within a few days of the auc
tion sale when Florry met him walk
ing disconsolately home from work.
"You don't look as though you had
gathered In that reward," she laughed.
"Tour suspicions are well ground
ed," he retorted. "I haven't"
"Come home, and have dinner with
us," she nrged, "there will be other
houses, even after the Spellman place
"But not other Florrys," he said.
T should hope not Come along,
and forget Itl"
Tom dldnt need urging, and went
Oh, what a dinner It was! Though it
was plain and-simple, it was well
cooked, and Tom, used to a boarding
house table, thought it a banquet of
the gods, especially every time he
looked at Florry opposite him. Then
came the homemade jam.
"Florry, dear! Why dldnt you open
it before you brought it on?" said her
Florry did not explain that Tom had
got her slightly "rattled," and proceed
ed to remove the stout paper cover.
It was tightly tied down, and Tom of
fered his assistance with a pocket
knife. He removed the paper and be
gan reading the writing on the other
side. Suddenly he gasped and cried
"Where's the rest of this paper?"
"On the other jars, I suppose," said
Mrs. Bliss. "Whyr
"It's the Hazzard deed!" he cried.
Such an opening of jam pots never
was seen, and such a piecing together
of bits, some of the paper being found
intact and not yet cut into.
"Mother, where did you get it?"
"One day a load of waste paper was
going by, and some of it blew over In
the yard. I thought that was such
nice, tough, strong paper It would be
just the thing for jellies and jams.

the waste basket," said Tom.
Tom bought the Spellman place, and
ifs being got ready for Florry and
her mother. Tom doesn't know wheth
