But the dance intervened.
A month later Doctor Gray an
nounced to the school that on these
themes the faculty had based their
choico for the Groly scholarship in
The assembled class gave breathless
attention; the announcement came as
a surprise. Anne flushed, and was
conscious that more than one girl
glanced her way.
Doctor Gray continued: "And in
making the choice known, I would say
that it is not only on the merits of the
actual theme in hand, which is marked
by clearness, simplicity and a rarer
quality-humor-but because of her
fine showing in English as compared
with earlier work of the year that the
scholarship is awardod to Miss Ma
tilde Levereaux. A close second, but
lacking the simplicity and humor of
MisLevereaux's work, stands the work
of Miss Anne Norwich."
AsSt was Friday, Anne went home.
Home meant a low, broad house in a
gioup of live oaks and pines. Home
meant father working early and late
for a cotton crop. Home meant young
er sisters and brothers, and a sacri
fice by all to give Anne her year at
school.- Home meant mother, never
strong, today lying on her couch, her
hand at this moment on Anne's head,
which was buried against the sofa
while Anne sobbed.

Matilde had laughed hysterically,
uncontrollably. She had seized Anne
after school, in the cloak room, and
could only speak in snatches for laugh
ter, "li's-the funniest-situation I
ever dreamed of, Anne. If only wc
could tell it-the joke-to the others!
I-the despair of the faculty-I-I
don't want it. lt's honors thrust upon
me. I'll be buying me a cap and
gown some day, Anne."
There was no comprehension of the
bitterness to Anne. But then Anne
had to remember that she had made
Ught of these very things with Ma
tilde. How., then, could Matilde know?
As for the falseness of the situation,
that, to Matilde, was plainly the fun
niest thing of. all.
But by Monday Matilde had changed.
She looked across the schoolroom sev
eral times wistfully toward Anne. At
recess she drew her aside, and told
her that Doctor Gray had met her
father on Friday, and had informed
bira about the scholarship before Ma
tilde reached home.
"And-and-you won't believe what
it meant to father, Anne!"
.Matilde's eyes left Anne's in embar
rassment; she was one to hide emo
tions and deeper feelings.
"He-papa-he kissed me on the
forehead-twice. Papa-think of it!"
Was Maltide pretending to laugh
?He-he said he had been mistaken
about me; it had been his unhappi
ness to think me shallow-and friv
olous; he begged my pardon. 0
There was no concealing lt. Ma
tilde was crying.
"He said it was the greatest grati
fication either of us had ever giver
him-Hortense or I. He had beer
so disappointed in us! We haven'
been anything he wanted us to be
How could I tell him it was all i

Later that day Matilde spoke again

c I isn't there, Anne? I've actuall;
worked every problem."
"There's noih ng like it," sal
Anne. It was jjy to be honest, an
not to laugh falsely at things on
loved and believed in.

Matilde held Anne's arm tight a?

and was looking inward. She drew
a breath suddenly.

bewildering but soothing. There had
been enough to sting

"I've got to make it up to papa-to
