Therefore, she ascended the cobwebby rtalrway to the loft, and made her appearance in the printing room of the North Kud Unlly Oriole.

Then, with her cousin Herbert's stern assistance, Florence had realised that her gullibility wa not io be expected in anybody over seven years old. after which age such legend are supposed to he encoun tered with the derision of experienced people. Her fnM'.ilioiisnes aroused, she de cided thai lb ury Itooier had no busi ness to be talking about what would happen to her Inside, anyhow; and so informed him at their next meeting, adding an explanation which absolute ly proved him to be no gentleman. And her opinion of him was still ier fctlly plain in her cxprcsMiui as she made her present Inlru-lon upon bis working hours. He seemed lo re ciprocate. "Here! Didn't I and Herbert lell you to keep tun o' here" be demand ed, even before FloVeiice had devel ojied ihe slightest form of greeting. "Look at her, Herbert! Shea back again:" "You get out o' here, Florence." sal. I Herbert, abandoning his task with a look of pain. -How often we haf to tell you we don't want you around b.ie when we're in .n.r olVav like this" "For heaven's sal.c!" Henry Hooter thought ft io add. "Cuift joii unit rtihhii g r.p .md down our i.t'ice stairs once in a whu'e, long cumuli for us to get our newspaper work done t'an't you give us a little peace" The jiii kiai'ss ,,f Flor. ncc's alter ing complexion was juM ,ti,.. ; ..he bad not been near il cir old oi'.i. t- for four days.

"It lu tt" "No. It Is not I Thl Isn't nnvrmdy's unhh It' my and Herbert' news paper building, and I guess yon haven't cot the fr.ee to stand there uml claim yon tot a right to go In a new spnpor building nnd ny you tfot n right there when everybody ft'.J you in Htnv mitl o .f it, 1 guess!" "Oh. haven't I?" "No. you haven't I !" Mr. Hoofer n aiiitained bitterly. "You Just walk downtown nnd go In one of the news-prii- r buildings down there an I tell 'em you got a right to stay there nil day long when they tell you to get out o there! Just try It! That' fill I nsk !" Florence uttered a cry of derision. "And pray, whoever told you I was hound to do everything you Bk me to. Mister Henry Hooter?" And she eon eluded by reverting to that hostile Impulse, o nm lent, which In despair of touching an antagonist effectively, reflects upon his ancestors. "If yon got anything you wunt to ask, you go ask your grandmother!" "Here!" Herbert sprang to his feet, outrngiil.' "You try and behave like a lady!" "Who'll make me?" she Inquired. "You got to behave like a Indy as long as you're In our newspaper liulld hiir, anyway," Herbert said ominously. "If you expect to come up here after you been told five dozen times to keep out " "For heaven's sakes!" his partner Interposed. "When we gofn to get our newspaper work done? She's your cousin ; I should tldi.k you could get her out !" "Well. I'm goln to. ain't I?" Her bert protested plaint !vi ly. "I expect to get her nut. don't I" "Oh, son do" Mi-s Atw titer In quired, with severe mockery. "Fray, how do you expect to accomplish It. pray?" Herbert looked desperate, but was unable to form a reply consistent with some rules of etiquette and gallantry which he had begun to nle-erve during the past year or r.o. "Now. see here, Florence," he said. "You're old enough to know when people fell you to keep out of a place, why. It moans they want you to stay away from there." Florence remained cold to this rea soning. "Oh, pool!" she said. "Now, look here!" her cousin re monstrated, and wont on with his ar gument. "We got our newspaper work to do. and you ought to have sense etio'igh to know newspaper work like this newspaper work we got on our Lauds hero, isn't well, it ain't any chip's play." Ills parlnr npprnrod to approve of the expression.' tor ho podded severely and then u.-od it himself. "No, you bet it isn't any child's play!" ho ald. "No, sir." Henry Hooter agnlti agreed.

Instead of a'Uiii' liiv you'd never been lauclil niiyt'li'iig, and was only lit to associate with hood liims, perhaps my lime is of some value, myself:" The hick of rhetorical cohesion was largely counteracted by the strong expressiveness oi tone and manner; at all events, Florence made perfectly clear her position as a person of worth, dealing with the lowest of ail her inferiors. Mhe went on, not paus ing: "I thought, being as 1 was related to you, and all the family ami everybody else goin' to bal to rmid your ole newspajier. anyway ltd be a good thing if what was primed in It wasn't all a disgrace to ihe family, because the name of our family's got mixed up with this newspaper; so here!" Thus speaking, the took the poem from her pocket uml with dlguity held It forth to her cousin. "W bin s that?" Herbert Inquired, not moving a hand, lie was but an ama teur, yet already enough of an edltoc to have his suspicions. "li s a poem," Florence said. "I don't know whether I exackly ought to huve It In your ole news a per or not, but on account ,,f the family's sake 1 guess 1 better. Here, take it." Herbert nt otice withdrew a few steps, placing bis hands behind him. "Listen, here," he said, "you think we got lime to read a lot o' writ in' in J our ole hamlw riiiu' lhat nobody can read anyhow, ami then go to work and toil and moil to prim it .n (lie prlntiit' pros jiue.s we got work enough print In" what we wroie for our news paiicr our own M-Ies!

"I'll go hnck ntul toll Ftc-lo Joseph and he'll take this printing press buck." "He will not take It back. 1 ntready did tell film bow you keep pokln' around tryln' to run everything, and we Just worried our Mfos out tryln' to keep you away. He said he bet It was 0 hard Job; that's what Fncle Joseph said. So go on, tell him anything you wunt to. You don't get yor ole poem In our iicw spnpcr .'" "Not if she lived to be two hundred yenrs old!" Henry Hooter added. Then be had an afterthought. "Not Unless she pays for It." "How do you nieuti" Herbert asked, puzr.led. Henry's brow hail become enrnjgnt ed with no little professional impres fdvenesa. "You know what we were talkln' about this morning." he said. "How the right way to run our news paper, we ought to have some adver tisements in It and everything. Well, we want money, don't we? We could put this poem in our tiewspaer like an advertisement; that Is, If Florence. Das got any money, we could." Herbert frowned. "If her ole poem Isn't too long. guess we could. Here, let's see It, Florence." And. taking the sheet of paper In his hand, he tudled the dimensions of the poem, though without paining himself to rend If. "Well, I guess, maybe we enn do It." he said. "How much might we to charge her?" This question plunged Henry Hooter Into a state of calculation, while Flor ence observed him with veiled anxi ety; but aft.-r a time he looked up. his brow showing continued strain. "Do you keep a bank. Florence for rd.'kels and dimes and maybe quar ters, you know?" be Inquired. It was her cousin who impulsively replied for her. "No, she don't," he said. "Not since I was about seven years old!" Florence added sharply, though with dignity. "Do you still make mud pics in your buck yard, pray?" "Now, see here!" Henry objected. "Try ami be a lady anyway for a few minutes, can't you? I got to figure out how in u eh we got to charge you for your ole poem, don't 1?" "Well. thciiv" Florence returned, "you better ask me somep'm about that, hadn't you?" "Well," sabl Henry Hooter, "have you got any money at home?" "No. 1 haven't." "Have you got uny money with you?" "Yes. I have." "How much Is if?" "1 won't tell you." Henry frowned. "T euess we niuht to make her pay about two dollars and a half," hosaid, turning to his part ner.

"No. I haven't!" Florence, fiercely Informed him. as Herbert released her. "And I guess you .'.w-'ter hand that money I;;:: i -r you don't want to be arrested for stealing!" Henry was unmoved.

With a proud r,!r. slie cru"hlmrly departed: nnd returned to her own home far from dlss-atlsned with what she had accomplished. Moreover.

Florence consoled herself.

Florence laughed, made a deprecatory little side motion wttb her bead, nnd responded: "Why. A imi Carrie, that's nothing! It Just kind of comes to you."
