AltY FRANCES was ten years
old. She lived with her grand

was near tho village, so Mary
Frances went to school and Sunday
school when It was not too wet or too
Mary Frances' grandmother and her
aunt dressed her as they thought right,
but Mary Frances did not always agree
with their Ideas, and after a little girt
from the city came to visit one of Mary
Frances' friends she was more difficult
to please than before.
"I am going to mako over that red
and black plaid for Mary Frances this
summer," she he-nrd her aunt tell her
grandmother. "I had It when I was
about her age. It will lie real pretty
for her, nnd I will get some red ribbon
for her hair."
Now, Mary Frances had lived In ter
ror of that red and black plaid dress
for two years. She hated (t, and now
It had come sho was going to have It
made Into a dress, and she would have
to wear It to Sunday school.
Sho was silting under the window In
the garden, ttudlng her lesson for the
next Sunday. The tears gathered In
her eyes. "I won't wear It," she said
to herself, "I won't wear that hoi lid
looking thing If I nove-r go anywhorc."
Mary I'runces got up and walke-d
down the path that led to the road.
The tears we-ro still fulling fast and her
cheeks wcro pink from anger. "I wish

leaving her to lceep house.
"We shall bo home in tlmo for sup
per," her aunt said at parting. "You
make tea and toast and put on some
of that nulnee preserve I am golnj to
get you some red ribbon for your hair,
it will be pretty with that red and
black plaid dress I urn going to make
It over for you this winter."
Marj Frances said good-by to them,
and then she did her work. She washed
the dishes nnd made the kitchen tld,
then she spread up the beds. Her aunt
had turned und patted them before
le-nvlng. , , .
When she- went up stairs to make the
beds sho took the Bclssors with her, and
aftir her work was finished on that
floor she went Into the attic to a closet
and opened the door.
There hung the hated red nnd black
plaid dress. Mhe took It down and then
what do you suppose she did she cut
little holes In the dress.
When she finished she felt sura they
could not make a dress for her, and
there was a look of satisfaction In her
eyrs as sho hung It on the hook again.
"I think I will get out that plaid and
rip it," said Mary Frances' aunt one
morning after the dishes were put
She hod not been gone long when she
came down with the dress on her arm
and a wild look In her ees. "Mother,"
she said, In a horrified voice, "there nro
moths In that attic closet, and they
havo eaten this plaid dress almost up."
Both women looked as though they
would faint, and In a few minutes they
were at the stop of the house taking out
the clothes, nnd when Mary Frances
came home from school the yanl vvas

been stored In ,the attic

"Yes," replied her grandmother, "she
