"That Is quite true, Carolyn May,"
declared Miss Amanda, hugging tho

Carolyn May was for once beyond

a noise in tho outer hall nnd on the

open by the surprised janitor.
A burst of voices camo Into the

"And I'm never going away from my

"But what Aunty Rose Is going tn

"I've sent her a dispatch saying that
tho child Is safe. But If we go back

"Tho poor soul !" said his sister. "I
can believe that In her secret, subdued

MADE OCCASION FOR FESTIVAL

the arctic circle Is made the occasion
for a festival similar to that which

The exact spot where the railroad
crosses the circle Is probably not de

the railroad builders have left a slight
