She was back of tho old house, and
still some dlstanco away, when the
shrieks came again and yet again.
They were childish shrieks, wild with
pain and terror, and Annabel set her
teeth and cried out angrily as she ran.
Leaping nnd crashing through the
brush and tiees, the girl rushed on.

v.as a clear, actlva brain, nnd It told
r.' r tnat this would not do. Instead,
fhe stood silent a moment, while her
mart-betls slowed down and her blood
cooled. Then ahe turned slowly away.
She had cone but a few fcteps whm
ehc Etopped and, turolnj quickly about,
raced -he grl-n old house, with Its dark
portals and blank. Mglitlesy eyes.
"lou can't battle m." she cried,

Then, turning about In the nath, she
went swiftly home.

mother looked up quickly as the entorcd

Mrs. clilalclch looked uu with tho
quick-seeing mother gaze and detecttd
the blue shadows under the eyes, tha
tired lines about the red lips.
"A very good Idea, my dear." she
paid, cheerily. "I wish you would rido
into the village and bring out the mall
iflrst. And be careful of the pony, An
nabel; you know he has not been out of
ithe barn for a week, and may be pretty
frisky. And don't be late, dearie, for
Ellen Is going to spend Sunday with her
cousin, and we will be alone."
Annabel laughed as she kissed her
mother on the forehead.
"Don't you worry, dearie," she said,
with a loving smile, "Trlxy and I
understand each other too well to get
Into trouble." Then, running quickly
around the table, she put her arms
labouther grandmother's neck.
"Goodby, Gran." sho said, stooping
(down and kissing the velvety, withered
cheek very tenderly. Be good, and
take good care of yourself while your
baby Is away."
The old lady looked up at her, and
itears dimmed her eyes as she stroked
'the Boft. bright cheek.
"I will darling." she said, lovingly,
"and come back soon. What would
Gran ever do without her baby girl?"
How little the girl guessed at the
.time, as she stooped to smooth back a
.curl of the gray hair and kiss her
! grandmother's lips, that those were tho
last words she should ever hear from
Full of her plans, Annabel mounted
her pony nnd galloped away to the vil
lage. Having finished her errands thcie
'she started home, the mall In the pocket
of her riding habit, a bundle of papers
nnd magazines under her arm.
As she rode swiftly along by a short
cut across the field she saw that the
'back door of the House of the Purple
"Windows was open and the little girl
sitting on the step. Acting upon a sud
,den Impulse, the girl rode her pony up
to the side of the house, and leaving it
(standing untied, ran up the steps.
At the sound the child, who was sit
ting In a huddled, miserable little bunch,
with her head upon her hands, started
up. Annabel greeted her gayly. But the
little girl simply started at hor with
hollow, frightened eyes, and made no
answer. Annabel looked quickly around.
There was no sound In the kitchen, the
house seemed quiet and deserted.
"Where is Mrs. Jennings?" she asked.
The child hesitated: looked up and all
around her before she answered, In a
whispering voice: "Sho has gone- to the
Annabel's heart bounded.
"And Mr. . Jennlngs7" she questioned.
.Again the child glanced about her with
anxious, fearful eyes.
"I don't know," she whispered. "He
went away with the buggy."
"Ah!" there was a tone of triumph In
the small exclamation. Taktn? the
child's hand, Annabel led her Into the
house. She had a bag of fresh cakes
under hor arm. and, seating herself in
the nearest rhair. she' drew the little
Klrl to her side. Smiling at her reassur
ingly, she put a cake Into her hand.
Somewhat to her surprise, the child
grabbed at It eagerly, and began to de
"Are you hungry, dearie?" she asked,
The little one bobbed her head and
went on eating ravenously. When tho
cake was gone she looked wistfully to
ward the bag. and Annabel gave her an
other. "Don't she don't they give you
enough to cat. Lizzie?" she asked, with

Into her temples. She had seen hungry

came to her lips, she placed the bag of
cakes In the child's hands, and watched,

While she was finishing -the lalpt one
her eyes fell upon the magailnen that
Annabel had thrown down beside her
fjn the floor. With a little cry 6f de
""v. 8no dropped down beside them,
pointing with her tiny chapped linger
at a picture on the cover. t
"Ohl" sho cried, In the most chlldVlike
tone that Annabel had ever heard from
her lips, "Oh! I havo seen a boat lke
that. Father and I rode In one wlhen
we were in Venice! I know Its name,
too: it Is a gondola."
"To be suro it Is!" cried Annabel,
tremulously. "And you have been in
Venice? And with your father? Whelre
Is your father now, dearie?" She wala
trembling from head to foot as sKe
asked the question.
The child, leaning on her knee, lookedM
u,P into her face. In the deep, dark- I,
uuLieu vioiei eyes tnere snone a loon
of eagerness and pathetic suffering
heart-breaking to see.
"My father?" she said, pantlnitlv
striving hard to keep back her tears,
"my father. Oh! I wish I knew, I wish
I knew! If my father was hero "
She stopped suddenly, nnd grew white
to tho lips, her eyes dilating with ter
ror, and Annabel ground her teeth with
disappointment, aB she heard a swift,
light step on the porch outside.
She had only time to put the child
from her side and gather up her maga
zines from tho floor when Mrs. Jen
nings, red of faco and panting for
breath, stood In the door.
With a suspicious scowl on her face,
her eyes traveled from one to the other.
"You here?" was her greeting to An
nabel. "What do you want?"
"I stopped to see Mr. Jennings,"
fibbed Annabel, unhesitatingly. "MV
pony Is off his feed again, and I wanted
to ask him what I had better do for
him. I found nobody at home but little
Lizzie here, and I was waiting tor some
body to come.
"And you have been taking to that
lying brat, I suppose? What did she say
to you? Lies, I'll be bound. That young
one simply can't tell the truth."
Under their long lashes Annabel's eyes
snapped, but she answered easily:
"No; the trouble was I couldn't make
her talk at all. I'm afraid ahe Is not
a very sociable young lady."
The woman eyed her-suspiclously, then
turned to the child.
"Get out of here," she ordered, harsh
ly. "Get back to your work!" As the
child moved away, sho turned to Anna
bel, and tho girl felt that she would
have scarcely recognized the face, so
distorted was it by malevolent passion.
"I hate the brat!" she burst out. "I
fairly hate her."
"I know you do," replied Annabel,
firmly, "and you are not fit to have tho
care of her."
At this the woman's slumbering rage
"Who are you to tell me that I am not
fit to hay tho care of her?" she
shrieked. ''Who eUe In all the world Is
so fit as I? What do you know about
It? How do you know who she Is? I
tell you It was Fate Providence call It
what you please that brought her Into
my hands. She's a little wretch! What
if I do beat her? Don't sho need it?
I'm dolnglt for her father's sake he
deserves it "
The torrent of loud, sharp words
was arrested by a sharp cry, and
Annabel turned quickly, to see the
little girl standing before the woman,
her small faco as white as marble,
her eyes blazing, her hands clasped
to her panting breast.
"You lie!" she cried, her sweet, baby
ish treblo shrilling with passion. "You
lie, and vou know you do! You never
saw my mother; you never knew my
father! You don t know what they
would do for me! You are a thief, and
a wretch, and a murderer; and If my
father was here "
With a yell of rage the woman spiang
upon her She seized the tender Itttlo
body In her grasp, and It would have
fared 111 with the child had not Anna
bel's seventeen years' of vigorous out
door life made her more than an equal
for the woman.
All her carefully thought-out and cau
tiously laid plans were forgotten now.
She leaped upon the woman, tore the
child from her grasp, and with a well
directed blow on the point of her Jaw,
knocked the Jennings woman to the
Then, catching the child up In her
arms, she ran down the steps, leaped to
her saddle, threw the child across In
front of her, and, with a cut of her
whip, sent her pony flying across tho
field toward Hlllciest, the child lying
unconscious upon her bosom.

Even suits made or the very lightest
weight flannels, and serges are too
heavy for the sweltering days that are
coming, and light, durable materials
are nt a premium. Although linen is
by far one of the most practical and
reasonably-priced material, It wrinkles
so quickly that it Is difficult to keep a
suit or dress looking neat for any
length of time. Russian ramie cloth Is
In excellent substitute for linen, and
many prefer it to any other. Tho tus
sah weave, in which form It usually
appeare, makes the ramie closely re
semble pongee cloth, but there are no
loose or protruding ends of thread as
In tho pongee. Twenty-seven Inches Is
the usual width, and eight yards will
make a coat suit for a largo woman,
six yards for a small woman. This ma

For a good many years the spoon
holder question has been a source of
concern and annoyance to housekeep

may tpoon up the dust, or any particles
In tho bottom, or should they be turned
with the spoon part up so that they
may bo handled every time anyono

solved by the Invention of a holder hi

The Correct Form
In Table Service
Good form In setting the table Is con
sidered quite as carefully by the up-to-date
hostess as the menu which she
turves. She wants to know what Is con
sidered good form and good taste, that
the choice of linen, selection of china,
and airangements of silver may bo cor
rect for all occasions.
Many persons used to "refined home
service when dining out aro confused
h the multiplicity of silver displayed
at a formal dinner, and are made un
comfortable by a nervous fear that they
may make some blunder that will stamp
tnem as in nreo.
Good service Is not a fad. and back
of every correct arrangement there is a
reason widen win be apparent to tne
guest from the ease with which a meal
is served. This Is Illustrated by the fact
that, although one may find the silver
laid In various ways in different hotels
and tearooms, it Is now generally ac
cepted as a convenient ararngement that
the piece of silver farthest from the
plate Is tho first one to be used, this
arrangement leaving the guest no
chance to make a mistake. Then, too,
the old rule always stands good: "When
in doubt, wntch your hostess."
If jou serve afternoon tea all appurte
nunces of the table should be as dainty
as possible. A very simple design in
china 1h always safe. The napkins
should be circular and havo a finely
scalloped edge or madeira embroidery
to correspond with the teacloth.

The good woman was much delighted)
with the Infant, as she had no children,
of her own. So tho kind rouplo took ,
care of the child and reared It as their
own. About the baby neck they found
a long golden chain, and this they made"
him always wear, thinking it might
Bomo day show who weie his parent.
But the Prince was heartbroken at
the loss of his son and wandered sad
ly around his marblo halls, mourning-'
for the child he believed dead.
The hunter named tho boy Suda,
taught him how to shoot straight and
quickly and to chaBe even the wild-,
boar to his den. Even day he would",
practice till at last he could do won-,
derful things with his bow and arrow.
He wanted to try In the games held;
every year on tho Prince's lawn, so.
when he was about twelve the hunter
told him ho could enter the contest that
On the evening before the games the
Prince took a Journey through the for

the hunter. When he had gone a short
distance with his train of guards there
was a great noise, and the people fled,
leaving the Prince alone on his ele-j
phant. Then out of the Jungle sprang
the hugo tiger. . d
Now, It happened that 8uda had hid-,

gay procession pass. But when tho.
cowardly servants fled, leaving the
Prince to face the animal, the brave
boy stepped boldly out Into the path.
As the tiger crouched for a spring
toward tho Prince Buda held his bow
to his eye for an Instant, then sent an
arrow speeding Into the tiger's right
eye; In another moment ho had shot
one Into the left eye, and the tiger fell
The guards came running back and
helped the Prince down from his ele
phant. Buda knelt at his feet, and as the
boy bent his head the Prince saw tho
golden chain around his neck.
"Where did you get this?" cried the
Prince, for he knew It was the one
which had been put on tho throat of
the baby stolen by the tiger.
"It was about the boy's neck when I
got him, a baby, from the tiger's laws,"
answered the hunter, who had Just
come up. And he told tho Prince all
about how he had shot the beast, taken
the baby home and reared him as his
With tears of Joy the Prince embraced
the boy, for he knew It was his long
lost son whoie bravery had brought him
back to a father. So Suda was dressed
In velvet and given a small clephont,
