"Dad I" snid Cherry, with a childish
breath. "Dad I I've brought Martin

Tile three at the tuhle did not mbvo
for perhaps twenty slow seconds, Dr.
Strickland, who had pushed back his
chair, and whose hnnds were resting
on tbe tab'.e before him, stared at thura
steadily. Anne, with a quick little
hiss of surprise, smiled faintly. Allx,
the unstilted, widened her eyes, and
opened her mouth In unaffected as
tonishment. F^r there wus no mis
taking Cherry's ?one.
"Doctor/ said Martin, coming in,
"this lit'le girl of yours and I have
something to tell you I"
The old man looked at him sharply,
almost sternly, looked about at the
girls' faces, and was sUent.
"Are you surprised, Daddy?" Cherry
laughed, with all a child's Innocent
exultation. The next Instant Anne
and Marlin were shaking hands, and
Allx had enveloped . Cherry In an en
"Surprised 1" exclaimed Allx. "Why,
aren't you surprised yourself?"
Her sister Hushed exquisitely, and
"We're Just about knocked silly 1"
he coniessed, and all the girls laughed
A place was made for Martin, and
biscuits and omelet and honey and
tea were put Into brisk circulation
Cherry took ber chair, all dimples,
flushes, smiles, and shy confidence.
"And what are your plans?" Anne
Mer uncle, who had been silent dur
ing the excitement, mildly Interposed:
"I think wo needn't go too fast,
young peojOe I You've only known
each other a few weeks, after all ; you
must bo pretty su t yourselves be
fore taking any*' dko a decisive
step. Plenty of urn?-plenty of time.
Mr. Lloyd herc and I must hnvo some
talks about his plans-"
"I know exactly how you feel, Doc
tor," Martin said, sensibly and sym
pathetically. "I realize that I should
have come to you first, and asked to
pay my respects to your daughter. Ex
cept that lt all came over me with
euch a rush. A week ago Cherry was
only a most attractive child, to me.
I'd spoken to my aunt about her and
had said that I envied the man that
was some day to win her, and that
was alli Then the time came for me
to get back to work-and I found X
couldn't gol And thou cain?; last
night, when I began to say good-byes,
and-lt happened I I know that you
all hardly know nie, and I know that
Cherry is pretty young to settle down,
but I think 1 can satisfy you, Doctor,
that you give her Into snfe hands, and
I believe she'll never regret trusting I
He had gotten to hts feet as he spoke
and was holding the back of his chair,
looking anxiously and eagerly Into the
old man's eyes.
"Well-" said the 'doctor, - touched.
In his gentlest tone, "well ! lt had
to come, perhaps. I can't promise her
to you very soon, Mr. Lloyd. But If
you both are wi' ig to walt, and If
time proves this to be the real feel
ing, f don't believe you'll lind me hard
on you I"
"That's all I ask, slr I" Martin said,
resuming his sent and his dinner. And
for the rest of the meul harmony ano
ga yet y reigned.
After dinner Cherry and Martin, In
all the ecstatic first delight of recog
nized love, went out to the wide front
porch, where there were wicker chairs,
under the rose vines. Allx alone
laughed at them as they went. Anne,
with a storm In her heart, played nois
ily on the piano, and the doctor, after
giving the doorway where Cherry had
disappeared a wistful look, restlessly
took to hts armchair and his book, In
such devolution of spirit as he had not
known since the dark day of her moth
Tho next day Allx and the engaged
pair walked up to Invite Beter to a
tennis foursome on tho old Bltthedale
court. It was a Saturday, and as he
usually dined with them, or asked them
to dine with him on Snturduy, they
were not surprised to find bim busy
with a charcoal burner, under the
trees, compounding a marvelous dish
of chicken, tomatoes, cream and mush
"Stop your messing one second I"
Allx said, catching bim by the arm.
"Congratulate these creatures-they
they're going to be marrhM I Why
don't you congratulate them?"
Peter gave ono long look at Mar
tin and ("berry, wdio stood laughing,
but a little confused and self-con
scious, too, In the grassy path. With a
shock like death In bis heart, he real
ized that lt was all over. Their pro
tection of ber, their suspicions, had
come too late. Blind child that she
was, she was committed to this fasci
nating and mysterious adventure.
IBs face grow dark with a sudden
rush of'blood. But he went to them
quickly and shook hands with Martin,
and was presently reproaching Cherry
for her secretiveness In his old, or
almost his old, way.

He arranged that they were to piny
the tennis here on his own .-ourtn, mid
luter .lino with him, but under his
hospitality and under the golden beau
ty of the day lt was all palo-pain
pain. It was agony to see her with
him, beginning to tasto the raptare of
love given and returned; lt was agony
to hove the conversation return al
ways to Martin and Cherry, to the
first love affair. Peter felt that he
could have killed this newcomer, this
thief, this usurper of the place that he
himself might have filled.
"Dad's always said he disapproved
of long engagements," Allx commented,
amusedly, "but you ought to hear him
now I This thing-he won't even call
it an engagement-lt's nn understand
ing, or a preference-ls to be a pro
found secret, and Cherry's to be twen
ty-one before any one els* but our
Peter did not hear her. There was
beginning a little hopo In his heart
Girls did not always fulfill their first
engagements; did not often do so, In
fact. The Thing wos a secret ; lt might
wei? CO?-G to nothing, after all.
That wo s the beginning, and after
tt, although lt was arranged between
tnera all tnat nothing rdiould be
changed, and that nobody but theta*
solves should share thc secrot, some
how life seemed different. Two or
three days after the momentous doy
of the raising of the rose tree, Martin
Lloyd went to his mine nt Kl Nido,
and the Interrupted current of lifo In
the brown bungalow supposedly found
Its old groove.
But nothing was the ?nine. The doc
tor, In the first place, was more silent
and thoughtful than the girls had ever
seen him before. Anne and Allx knew
that he was not happy about Cherry's
plans, If the younger girl did not. With
Allx only he talked of the engage
ment, and she knew from bis com
ments, bis doubtful manner, that bc
felt lt to be a mistake. The ten years'
difference between Cherry and Martin
distressed him; be spoke of lt again
Cherry was changed, too, and not
only in the expected and natural ways,
Allx thought. Her dally letter from
Martin, her now prospects, not only
Increased her Importance In the other
girls' eyes, but Innocently Inflated her
own self-confidence. She bad prom
ised to keep the engagement "or un
derstanding, or preference," s pro
found secret, but this was Impossible.
First ono Intimate friend and then an
other was allowed to gasp and ex
claim over tho nows. The time came
when Anne decided that lt was not
"decent" not to lot Martin's aunt know
I of lt, when nil those, other people
knew. Finally came a dinner to the
I Norths', when Cherry's health was
drunk, and then tho engagement pres
ents bogan t* come In.
Her father only looked tenderly In
to the blue eyes and tightened his
big arm protectIngly about thc slender
young shoulders. But he was deeply
depressed. There waa nothing to be
said against young Lloyd. It was only
-mused the doctor, aghast-only
what was being done In the world
every day. But he was staggered by
the bright readiness with which all
of them-Cherry, Martin, tho other
girls-accepted the stupendous fact
that Cherry was to be married.

"I got my ?ards yesterday," she
said one day. "1 was passing the shop
and I thought 1 might as well ! The
woman looked ai me so queerly; she
sahl: 'Mrs. John Martin Lloyd.' Are
these for your mother?' 'No,' 1 said.
'They're for me!' 1 wish you could
have seen her look. Marlin says in

And so on und on. The oilier girls
listened, sympathized and rejoiced, but
lt was not always easy.

Somehow, a few days later, weddin}
plans were in the air, and they wen
all taking It for grunted that Cherrj
and Martin were to be married almos
immediately; In October, in fact. Th*
doctor ot first persisted thnt the even

reasonable Impatience and Cherry'
plnlntlve "Rut why, Daddy?" were to
much for him. Why, Indeed? Choi
ry's mother had been married at eight
een, when that mother's husband wu
more than ten years older than Marti!
Lloyd w?s now.
"Would ye let lt go on, eh?" th
doctor asked, somewhat embarrassei
one evening when he and Peter wer
walking from the train in the lat
"Lord, don't ask mel" Peter sah
gruilly. "I think she's too young t

"I think I'll tnlk to her," ber fntht
decided. "Anything ls belter thu

she'll listen to me!" And a day i
two Inter he culled her Into tho stud;
It was a quiet nutumn morning, fog?
yet warm, with a dewy, woody ?wee

bright face, "liefere Martin writes h

A rush ot tears choked her.' She
groped for a handkerchief and felt,
as she lind felt so many times, her
father's handkerchief pressed into her
hand. Tho doctor sighed. There was
nothing moro to be sahl.
So he gave Cherry a wedding chock
that made her dunce with Joy, and
there was no moro seriousness. There
were gowns, dinners, theater parties
and presents; every day brought Its
new surprise and now delight to Cher
ry. She bad her oroniu-eolorod rajah

suaded her to be married In white, and

woods were tangled In scarfs of white
fog, then tho mellow sunlight pierced
lt with sudden spectacular brighten
ing mid lifting.
At twelve o'clock Charity Strick
land became Charity Lloyd and was
kissed and tonsted and congratulated
until her lovely little face was burn
ing with color and her blue eyes were
bewildered with fatigue. At two
o'clock there were good-bys. Cherry
had changed the wedding satin for thc
cream-colored rajah silk then and wore
the extravagant hat. It would be
ninny years before she would spend
twenty-live dollars for a hat again, and
never again would she see bronzed
cocks' feathers against bronzed straw
without remembering tho clean little
wood-smelling bedroom and the hour In
which she lind pinned her wedding hot
ovor-ber fair hair, and had gone, de
mure and radiant and confident, to
meet her btinbnnd In the old hallway.
She was confusedly kissed, passed
from hand to hand, was conscious with
a bvyft of strange aching at her heart
that slie was not only fur from saying
the usual heart-broken things In fare
well, hut was actually far from feel
ing them. She laughed at Allx's last
nonsense, promised to write-wouldn't
say good-hy-would see them "all soon

kiss for darling Dnd and good-hy and
So many thanks and thanks to them
She was gone. With her the uncer
tain autumn sunshine vanished and a
shadow fell on the forest. Tho moun
tuln above tho valley was blotted out
with fog. The brown house seemed
dnrk and empty when the last guests
hnd loitered away and the last caterer
had gathered up his possessions and
Tho doctor lind changed his un
wonted wedding Query for his shabby
old smoking Jacket, but Peter still
looked unnaturally well dressed. Allx
stepped down to sit between them and
her father's ann went about her. She
snuggled against bim in nn unusual
mood of tenderness and quiet.
"Be nico to mo!" she said, whim
sically. "I'm lonely!"
"H'm!" her father said, significant
ly, tightening lils arm. Peter moved
up on the other side and locked his
own arm in her free ono. And so
they sat, silent, depressed, their shoul
ders touching, their somber eyes tlxed
upon the shadowy depths of the forest
Into which an October fog was softly
and noiselessly creeping.
