FLORA A. MONTY
(0, 1920, by McClure Newspaper Syndicate.)
A look of quickening interest bright
ened the middle-aged face of Andrew
Graves as a long gray envelope slipped
from the pile of litters through which
he was glancing.
He tore It open eagerly and drew
out a card on which was a water-color
sketch of a woman's head. The faint
est odor of apple blossoms clung to
the interesting trifle.
Graves studied It intently. It was the
fifth he had received that week. Be
ginning Monday morning, one had ar
rived each day In the first pile of mail
brought to his desk. When the first
one came he had been but slightly con
cerned. The second made him curious.
and the third had aroused a deep de
sire to learn their source. The face
appealed to him, rousing vaguely some
dormant and disconnected memories
of his youth.
Opening a drawer in his desk, he
took out the ones he had received
earlier in the week. Spreading the
cards in a row, he made them the ob
jects of his most attentive considera
tion. The same face was sketched on
all, but each represented a different
expression and pose. No word of any
kind accompanied them.

were laden with the fragrant pink and

who were his companions.

uuddenly stOpped as his eyes noted the
gray envelope the boy carried. "Where
did you get that?" he demanded.
"Lady outside, sir, sent it in."
"A lady1 S md her in at once."
Ile opened the envelope the boy
handed him. The same face was on
the card it en:losed, but somehow the
expression wa j almost triumphant.
As he stud(i d it the caller entered,
and lie started to his feet. le stared,
but justifiably, for there was the lady
of the cards, and the scent of apple
blossoms was filling the room. She
was tall and slender, and wore a gown
of sivery gray. There was a touch of
pink about it that matched the bloom
of her cheeks.
"You have come," he said simply. "I
felt that you must."
"Then the adverisement was suc
cessful?" A rhomentary gleam of
mirth sparkled in the brown eyes.
"The advertisement? Oh, the gray
envelopes-the cards? What do they
mean? But he seated, please. I am
rude." le was plainly bewildered.
"I am an artist, Air. Graves. I liave
attempted to see you before, but you
were never at leisure, so I adopted
the card method of getting you ac
qualnted with my work. I hoped I
might secure an interview that way."
"You are wonderfully clever," he
said slowly, in undisguised admiration.
"You have gained your purpose. I
shall be glad to give you a commis
The lady in gray said nothing, but
her smile took him back to the days
of his boyhood.
"I want some landscapes, not in oil,
but in your charming water colors. I
want thema to embody certain things."
And in a softened voice he described
his old home, the apple orchard and
the spring by the roadside. "I do not
expect them to be absolutely true to
life as it was then. But it was my
childhood home. Let your work be a
type. Do with them as you like.
Somehow I feel sure you can make
exactly what I want."
"Thank you, Mr. Graves. I shall not
disappoint you." And she was gone
before he realized that he did not
know her name or place of residence.
The next month was interminably
long. There was no word from his
artist, nor could he learn one thtng
about her. Mrs. Rowers, though be
sieged with Inquiries, refused an an
At last, one day, another gray en

ten, "Call at it Grey terrace."
Exactly thirty minutes lIter Andrew
Graves was ringing the bell at 11 Grey
terrace. No one was in the room
where he was shown to wait, but, hung
against one wvall were half a dozen
daintily executed sketches of his old
farm home, clear and true as the hand
of mortal could make.
Hungrily he gated at them, and
then turned to find the artist at his
side. Without a word he took her in
his arms and kissed her. She made
no effort to release herself.
"Marts, I know you now I My little
girl sweetheart I My sweetheart for
.ever I Will you comte to me when the
apple blossoms are here again?"
And she said that she would.
Weathercock Long in Use.
Weathercocks seem to date from
early times. According to Duncange,
the cock was originally devised as an
emblem of clerical viglance. The
large tail of the cock was adapted to
turn with the wind.
Many churches have for a vane the
emblem of the saints to wvhom them
are dledientedl. St. Peter's. Cornhill,
Londlon, is surmounted with a key.
St. Peter having the keys of heaven
St. Laurence has for a vane a grid
iron, and St. Laurence at Norwich has
the gridiront with the holy martyr ex
tended upon the bars. A gilt ship in
full sail is the vaune upon St. Miilred's
church in the P'oultry.
St. Michatel's, Queenshithe, has a
ship, the hull of which will hold a
bushel of grain, referring to the for
mer traille in corn at the hithe.
Many Holidays In December.
December, taking the world over, is
a month of bank and'( pubtllic holidays.
No less than 20 of the 31 day13s of the
month are recognized somewhere as
occasions for church fetes or cessa
tion of husiness in celebration of lo.
cal or national events.
Christmas, of course, is more wide
ly observed as a holidaly than any oth
er, but even it is not recogniz~ed every
where. Non-Christlan peoples pay no
attention to it, and in countries where
the Greek Catholic church prevails,
the old1 style Jlulian calendnir is used,
so that, while Christmas is nserved
as a church fesival, it comes about
two weeks iater tihan in countries that
use the Gregorian calendar.
The Ombu Tree.
The ombu tree on the South Ameri

F'ar Away amid Long Ago, is a very
singular tree, indeed, andl being the
only representative of tree vegetation
natural to the soil, on these level
plains, and having also manty curious
superstltions connected wvitht it, it la~ a
romance in itself. It belongs to the
rare P'hytolacca famly, and has an Im

cases; at the same time the wood is so
soft and tponigy that It can be0 cut into
