And yet, even here, among the dust and

were lingering at the cashier's dealt,
others putting on their garments In the
act of going. Here was a commercial
world In miniature, from the proprietor
ielaurely leaning against the railing In
conversation with a visitor, down
through the various departments to the
tiny "cash girl."
Immediately In front of the cash window
of the office. the center of an interested
group, stood a slight figure In
a garment pieced and ltfended so that
it night almost serve as a cloak of
many colors, save that It was neatly
and tastefully done. She was a ohlld of
sixteen or seventeen, with a pale, sad
face, but an Intelligent and winning
one, bright ey?*s that held a depth of
expression In them, and a wealth of
golden hair that clustered carelessly
about a high, full forehead. ,Ther?? was
a glow of good nature.in her look that
wan not to be misunderstood; and
though care had traced lines in her
young face. they, loo, seemed but lines
of a certain beauty, and iji her voice
were tones that were sweet and musical.
As 6he approached the desk, the cashier
looked up, and smiled. In all the
haste of closing hours. She was u
dork-featured woman in middle life,
with many traces of silver in her hair,
but kindness shown in every lineament.

reply. "I would like you to let me have

Mis? Whipple looked at the bright,
little face for a moment without replyIng.
and had one been at all observing

time. "But, Tatters, where do you come

"O, I'll come in all right." replied the
