LITTLE GRAY HOUSE
By HILDA MORRIS.
The houso was n very small one,
ritnndlngaioncly and deserted at the
turn of tho country road. Mildred came
upon It early one morning In June
when slio was searching for a quiet
place to read and dream.
Mildred was a teacher, and sho had
como to spend her long summer vnca
tion at Willow Lako hotel. Sho was
a slim girl, palo and pretty, VTlth a
soft charm that needed only rest and
fresh air to mako It bloom Into real
Tho little gray house looked llko a
haven peaceful enough for anyone. It
was shaded by a hugo oak tree, and
tho patch of lawn before It was green
and smooth as velvet A largo "For
Rent" sign decorated Its front window.
Mildred climbed tho steps and peered
In at tho window. Sho saw n clean-
swept room with painted white wood
work and an old white wooden man
tel. There was a glimpse of n blue
walled kitchen on beyond.
"Ohl" the girl exclaimed to herself.
"I do wont to boo tho rest of It I
Sho turned tho knob softly and found
that the door was unlocked, so she ex

It was not hard to find tho man who
had charge of It ho lived a half a
mile farther down tho road.
"That's tho Gordons' house," he ex
plained. "They're all dead now except
one young feller that's moved to the
city. He wants It took good care of,
and he'll rent It cheap to anybody'll
"Oh, I will take good cara of It."
Mildred assured him, smiling. 'Tit
even paper some of tho walls."
So she got tho honso for the absurd
rental of (7 a month less than half
tho sum she paid for her stuffy room
In the hotel. Mildred had a little fur
niture In storage In the city. She seat
for this, and set about the process ot
redecorating tho sunny "rooms.
By the time the living room was
complete, with Its chlnta curtains,
braided rugs and gate-legged table. It
was as delightful a room as any wom
an coald wish.
Thero came a dusty August day
with, a hint of thunder and rain In
tho air. There came also a letters
a most unwelcome letter to Mildred
In her little house. It was from the
principal of the private school where
she was a teacher. It said that she
waa expected to return to hfer post on
the 15th of September.
Sho lit a fire It was really cool for
August, and she was always ready to
light a fire atUhe slightest excuse 'be
cause It looked so cozy.
Mildred sat before the fire, trying
her very best to think of some plan by
which she could escape her year at
the school. If only she could paint,
or write, or do some clever thing to
earn a living at home! The threat of
rain had become a reality. It began to
fall In sudden torrents. As Mildred
stood at the window she saw a man
come down the road, running. Ho
turned suddenly, and sought shelter
under the big oak tree before her
house. At thnt moment n glimmer of
lightning flashed out. Mildred rushed
to the door.
"Please come In!" she culled. "You
might be struck under that tree. It
"All right," he called back In n pleas
ant voice, and In two or three bounds
ho was on the veranda, shaking him

"I'm pretty wet." he smiled. "I

ever did you come to me here?"
"I came to see my house," ho re
plied, "and you. Didn't you know, Mil
dred, that I wits your Inmllord?"
"Not" sho said. "I didn't. What
ever do you live ot Mrs. Green's for
when you have n place like this?"
"why I couldn't live hero alone," he
said, "and make It look llko this!
Goodness, Mildred, what have you done
to the old place? It hasn't been so
homelike since mother dledl"
Mildred laughed, a little ruefully.
"I know It's homelike," sho said.
"And the worst of It Is I've got to
leave It and go back to work very
soon. I hate to give It up."
David nodded, a little absently. Ho
was looking at the brown-haired girl
In tho blue gown nnd thinking how
lovely she was, how well she fitted Into
tho cozy little room.
"Why don't you move In yourself?"
Mildred was saying.
"I couldn't now," he said. "It's
rented. It's your house. There's Just
one condition under which I might live
here. That Is"
She waited, wondering, her heart
"That you will stay hero wltS me.
Could yon marry me, Mildred, tyren
though I offered you nothing better
than this little house, and lovo?''
"Oh, Davld'l" sho whispered. T
could. And nobody In all tho world
conld wish for any more 1"
