Myra waa exalted monitor of th* flow?

"Thank you, dear." answered Miss

ma. It'd make her sore."
"Of course, you wouldn't want to
hurt your mother's feelings," agreed
the teacher.
"My ma saw you coming to school
yesterday with a swell." confided
Myra. "Ma said, 'I ain't sure If lt's
Wednesday or Thursday morning he
'scorts your teacher to school, hut I'm
going to make lt my business to find
out.' So she watched to see."
"Child. what difference can It pos?
sibly make to your mother?" asked
Miss Lord in surprise.
"Ma doesn't want to miss anything
like that. She says it Just does her
heart good to see you and the swell
go by bo nice like together. Ma hasn't
had much pleasure since the twins
came, so she enjoys It when you two
go by. She says. 'That man can't

"You must not talk like that. Myra,"
reprimanded Miss Lord. "It Isn't good
taste to say such things about people."

know nothing about it. He ain't real?
ly my teacher's man. It's the flit and
flutter teacher what likes Miss Lord."
"And who may he be?" inquired the
teacher with a gasp of astonishment.
"He's our exercise 'structor. Mr.
Flllorpson. We kids call him 'flit and
flutter.' because he always kept telling
us to flit and flutter when we drilled
for our butterfly entertainment. I said
to my ma, I said. 'P'raps I don't know
my long division, but I do know when
a man ls just crazy about a lady.' Ma
laughed so hard she broke her new
corset steel."
"Myra, you are impossible," declared
Miss Lord. "If you paid as close at
' ntlon to your long division as you
jo to other people's affairs you wouKl
probably learn your numbers. You
are certainly a case for the psycho!

"What a disrespectful class of chll

teacher, trying to wear a dlsapprovln;

capitulation she added, smiling: "

"Dast I tell you yours?" askc
Myra.
"I'm eager to hear lt."
"Yours is 'Lady Violet,' because yo

"Thank you. That's a very nie
