years of age and her health had been J

So it happened that when tittle Anno

she created something or a sensation.

The young man who had driven
home with them came forward eagerly.
"Cinderella?" he murmured, laugh

"Don't tease her. Mark " Margaret
protested, with a perceptible note of Ir
ritation in her voice.
"Is he your beau?" Anne asked her
In a dim corner of the library.
The men were smoking on the bal
cony, which overlooked the Italian gar
den. "I'm not sure," Margaret said, with
a catch in her voice. "We are not en
gaged, If you mean that.''
"lias he eer kissed you?" Anne de
manded. Out of a long silence Margaret whis
pered: "If he had, what then?"
"Because that would show that he
wants td marry you. Dave kissed me
this mornln' on the mountain, and that
means that I'm his!"
"You dear!" Margaret said quickly
and turned the subject to other things.
But that night when little Anne was
In bed in the pink and white room
Margaret came lu. looking very beau
tiful, with her long braids framing the
white oval of her face and hanging
dark and glossy against ' the silken
folds of ber scarlet gown.
"Tell me about Dave," she com
manded. It was a simple little tale, but It
breathed of youth ond love.
"Mark wants to marry me," Mar
garet said slowly. "He asked me to
night after you came up."
Little Anne sat up in bed.
"Then It's nil settled?"
"No; It isn't settled. I can't be sure
of Mark. He knows that I have mon
ey and that father has influence, and
he Is an ambitious young lawyer. Oh,
little Anne" she threw herself down

afraid it is not love he gives me!"
Little Anne, puzzled by complexities
which had never disturbed her pellucid
"He wouldn't have asked you If he
didn't love you."
In spite of her doubts Margaret was
comforted by that simple faith.
Next evening little Anne again wore
the white gown. After dinner she sat
alone on the balcony with Mark, while
Margaret played for them. Below the
balcony the garden was asleep under
a silver moon. From beyond the stone
walls came the soft night sounds of
the city streets.
"Do you like It here. little Anno?"
"I like it. but I miss mother and
Dave." she told blm.

Anne went to her swiftly, like a bird
flying to cover. Mark followed slowly.
When they stood beside her Margaret
talked of plans for the next day a
matinee and dinner at Bartin's or the
opera and the Russian dancers.
"You you needn't plan for me," lit

Margaret stared at her in amaze

They clung together for a moment in
the darkness. Then Anne whispered:

shuddering sense of the secret aba
