They're going to be married. It's _
tomorrow. They'd have been married
right away at the first, only they haied
to wait-soimething about licenses and 1'
a five-day notiee, Mother said. Father in
fussed and fuired, and wavnted to try t
for a special displensiation, or some
thing; but Mother laughed, and said t
certainly not, and that she guessed it
was just as well fr sithe positively had ei
to have a few things; and he needn't
think he could walk right in like that
on a body and expect tier to get mar

didn't mean it. I know she didnt; for
when Father reproachelid her, she ce

And, as I said before, it is all per- d
fectly wonderful. in
So it's all settled, and they're going
right away on this trip and call it a
wedding trip. And, of course, Grand
father had to get off his joke about
how he thought it was a pretty dan
gerous business; and to see that this
honeymoon didn't go into an eclipse
while thtly were watching the other
one. But nobody ninds Grandfather.
I'm to stay here and finish school.
Then. In the spring, when Father and
Mother come back, ware all to go to
Andersonville and begin to live In the
old house again.
Won't It be lovely? It Just seems
too good to be true. Why, I don't care
a bit now whether I'm Mary or Marie.
But, then, nobody else does, either. In
fact, both of them call me the whole
name now, Mary Marie. I don't think
they ever said they would. They Just i
began to do it. That's all.
How about this being a love story
now? Oh, I'm so excited I
