My heroinn, whom we will call Margaret.
was a slim, fair girl of 17, shy and retiring to
exoma. She lived with a young married
couple, Mr. and Mrs. Field, and was treated
by them as one of the family.
One evening Mrs. Field was out driving
with a friend, and, as they were passing a
Mrs. Smith s house, a alauderous report that
was current in this neighborhood concerning
this Mrs. Smith came into Mrs. Fluid's mind.
and she carelessly repeated it to ber friend in
the ordiaary conversational tone. Mrs. Smith
happened to be out in ber garden, and, owing
to the latensm of the hour and to the shrub

say It was she who bad uttered the slander. If

there wa no one but bemelf to suffer, and
although the thought o-staining her fair
reputation wa very bitter, she was deter

At first they would not hear of it, but she
nnaily succeeded in bavuig her own way, aud

and that the report should go no further as
