Daisy was accustomed to these ti
rades, but they always brought- tears
to her. eyes. She might have reported
that her stepmother had seized upon
the bit of property that was left, and
used it all for the benefit of her own
children, but she refrained.
"Wait a minute." Mrs. Wentworth
resumed, garrulously. "I've got lots
of rags stowed away in the garret,
that I've been keeping until the right

his gaze happened to fall upon the

was a cameo of considerable value

Max gazed at the girl curiously. He
would have said more, but Mrs. Went

instant calling sharply for Daisy.
"Don't be loitering there, you good
for-nothing child! You might try to
make yourself useful occasionally..
You've only been a burden to me ever
since your father died. Go right up
Into the garret and bring down the

Daisy flitted away, a painful flush
suffusing her face.
But she had not seen the last of
the handsome artist.
That evening, as she stood dejectedly
at the garden gate, wearied out with
the labors of th? day and trying to
escape for a few moments from her
stepmother's' .shrewish tongue, he
came whistling along the lane, and
paused beside her.

"Yes,"'she admitted. "It was very
foolish of me."
"That dreadful woman has be?n

"I deserved lt, no doubt. I am not
strong, and cannot accomplish much."
Max Delaney muttered something
under his breath, then asked:
"Why don't you leave her? Have
you no relatives to whom you could
Daisy shook her head.
"There is only the great-aunt of
whom I spoke this morning-and I
don't even know where to find her.
It would make no difference if I did.
She is very rich, but my stepmother
says she hates girls, and could not be
induced to give me a penny."
"Suppose you go away with me?"
The girl stared at him, her cheeks
flushed, her lips parted.
"I-I don't understand what' you
mean, slr," she stammered.
"There is no occasion to look so

One morning. Daisy unexpectedly re
ceived a letter. It fell first into her
stepmother's hands, who, in the exer

Immediately tore it open and possessed
herself of its contents. It ran thus:
"I do not expect to feel proud of a

Daisy was quite startled by the mag
nificence of the brown stone front
where Miss McLean resided.
Her great aunt, a wrinkled old crone
in black velvet and lace, welcomed her
with a kiss.
"You have your mother's face, my
dear. I am glad of that."
"Oh," cried Daisy, eagerly, "do you
remember my mother?"
"Certainly. I used to wish she was
a boy. that I might leave her my
money. But girls are not of much con
sequence in this world. I had lo?t all

It was a charmed llfethatopenedfor
Daisy. The gay city, with all its re
tractions and nov, lties, seamed like en
chanted land. She was thoroughly
happy for the first time in her life.
Miss McLean appeared quite fond of
her, and her sweet dreams were never
interrupted by Mrs. Wentworth's
sharp, rasping voice. .
Six weeks went by all too quickly,
and at last she was summoned to her

Miss McLean said, looking at her keen

her voice choking a little. "It was

"You are ready to ivturn home?"

At last, .when the goodbyes had been
spoken, she groped her way blindly
down stairs. A gentleman stood near
the drawing-room door. As she looked
up, a startled cry broke from her lips.
"You here? How very strange!"
She blushed furiously, but ns the
young man opened his arms. Daisy
leaned her h ad up n his ; boulder with
a weary sigh.
"Are you glad to see me, darling?"
"Oh. very glad!"
"Then do you love me a little?"
"Yes," she answered, unable to keep
back the truth.
Just then Daisy heard a low laugh,
and looking up, saw Miss McLean
standing upon the landing, her kind
old face beaming with delight.
"You might as well ring for the
maid to take your wraps, my dear!"
she called out.
Daisy glanced bewilderingly from
the smiling woman to the handsome
"What does she mean?"

The cotton raising industry has been

to advance money to the planters, tak

The other de'velopmeni which is add

South is the growth of the cotton
spinning industry. Instead of shipping
its cotton to Liverpool or New Eng
land, as formerly, the South now
works up its own raw material. Near
ly five ann dree cotton mills are now
in operation within the limits of the
cotton belt, running five million spin
dles, representing an investment of
$130,000,000, and consuming annually
1,500,000 bales of cotton, or about one
seventh of the entire cotton crop.
The growth f the manufacturing in
dustry, side by side with..the fields of
production, is one of the most encour

seccotine and a knife. If it is a single
mount we have to deal with we pro
ceed as follows: Lay th? mount on Its
face and mark points at equal dis
tances from top edge and sides. Take
the tape and cut off two pieces an inch
long, b?nd them into loops and paste
them to the back of the mount just
over tiie points marked before, the
ends pointing toward the bottom of
the mount. Over these ends and
across them paste two small strips of
the paper and leave the whole to dry
and set (Fig. 1). When the paste bas
set lake the twine and tie to the loops,
a sufficient to make the mount hang as
desired. When two or more are to
hang together on the same twine to
form a set the only difference is that
the tape loops are not used. Instead,
tie knots in the twine, and pince tho
knots over the points narked before
them, paste strips of paper across the
twine just above the knots (Fig. 2).
One advantage of arranging prints
this way Is that the dust does not get
on the face of the prints. The more
decorative scheme is to arrange ap
propriate colored ribbon in this way,
and the effect in the hands of an ar
