I T Was a gusty, squally day,
-which made It (iflicult for
- naggie's bare legs to carry
her toward Cariore as rapid
ly as the oecasion demanded. She
unde herself as smiall as possible,
held the shawl wleh covered her head
close under her throat and in the lulls
of the wind incrensed her pnee to a run.
Tightly clutched iII her left hand
was a slip of paper on which was
scrawled a list of the articles she was
to buly nnd(1 carry hnck to lBallyeloghier.
The luxuries ('lnumllerated on the slip
of paper were for the enterdhitaient of
one guest, Maggie's uncle, lier noth
er's brother, whom she had never seen.
Sho understood hili to Ie rich. Indeed,
he was nlways held up by 'Mrs. C(Iyle
as a model for her husband's Imitation.
"ie's hundreds," sho used to say -
"hundreds, an' it's my belief they'rt
all in gowId; ye ean seo money in 'is
face. It's ye might. he as warin, Coin,
If ye'd think av the poor ethtlder."
She inade her piurchases ill at one
shop, and then foinul, as was i nvI
table, that Mrs. Coylo had ntieleiu
lated the piciies aldi sIe was 2 shillings
short. Mrs. 'Alit'lonagh, who k(ept the
store, was iitie willing to give iredit
for tlie bia llnce. Iut it seemitd to lag
