"Wouldn't you like a nice, hot oyster
stew?" Prudence repeated It after
So Fairy returned once more, and
soon after Prudence tapped on the
door. Then she opened It, and thrust
her curly head inside. "Wouldn't you
like a little nice, hot oyster stew?"
she chirped methodically. And Fairy
said, "Oh, yes, Indeed, Prudence-this
is so nice of you."
The three gathered sociably about
the table. Babble was first. to taste
the steaming stew. He gasped, and
gulped, and swallowed some water
with more haste than grace. Then.he
toyed idly with spoon and wafer until
Prudence tasted also. Pr'udence did
not gasp. She did not cry out. She
looked up at her sister with wide eyes,
-a world of pathos in the glance.
But Fairy did not notice.
"Now, please do not ask me to talk
until I have finished my soup," she
was saying brightly.
Then she tasted it! She dropped
her spoon with a great clatter, and
jumped up from the table. "Mercy !"
she shrieked. "It is poisoned !"
Babble lened back in his chair and
laughed until his eyes were wet. Pru
dence's eyes were wet, too, but not
from laughter! What would etiquette
think of her, after this?
"What did you do to this soup, Pru
dence?" demanded Fairy.
"I made it-nothing else," faltered
poor Prudence, quite crushed by this
blow. And oysters forty cents a pint!
"It's pepper, I think," gasped Bab
ble. "My insides hear startling testi
mony to the presence of pepper."
And he roared again, while Prudence
began a critical examination of the
oysters. She found them literally
stuffed with pepper: there was no
doubt of It. The twins hiad done dead

"Oh, I adore It. But serve a micro
scope with It, please. I want to ex
amine it for microbes before I taste."
But Prudence did better than that.
She made some delicious cocoa, and
opened a can of pear preserves, donat
ed to the parsonage by the amiable
Mrs. Adams. The twins were very
fond of pear preserves, and had been
Iitloking forward to eating these on
their approaching birthdlay. They
were doomed to disaplpointment ! The
three hud a merry little feast, after
all, and their laughter rang out so

with a brightness she did not feel.
