She hurriedly entered her room, and,

As she lay there, a plan suddenly
formed in her mind; and hastily ris

the hall and knocked at the door.
"Come in," called a melodious v->>ce.

The girls were very busy the next

ball, which the hostess was giving to
close her entertainment
At seven o'clock that evening Della
entered Beatrice's room, and seated
herself in a chair (placed for her) in
:Cront of the dressing table.
Beatrice first pulled the lace cap
from her friend's head, revealing a
mass of beautiful golden curls. This

a push saying: "Now, run along."

ballroom and was immediately claimed
for the first dance, which was thea
about to commence.
As she whirled about, her eyes fell
on a familiar figure.
"Who Is that stunning-looking girl
with Jack Morrill?" asked Fred Os

"Don't know," was the answer. "She
ia a beauty. But one can't recognize
any of the^glris In these confounded
things they're wearing."
"Aren't you masking?" Beatrice was
asked as she appeared.
"No," she answered. "I must be
away in a short while."
Della was in her second dance, when
