"What?" "Well, ns ihlnus have turned out lately I K'fss It's kind of a funny finest Ion, Mr. Hill; but do you like IKietryV Noble's expression took on a cold ness; for the word hrouxtit to his mini! n thotijjht of New land Saunders. This was a poet of Noble's age, who wrote vtrses to Julia that too-lovely, absent aunt of Florence's. "Do I like poetry?" said Nohle. "No, I don't." Florence was momentarily discour aged hut at Jier up- people usually possess an Invaluable faculty which they lose later In life; ami It Is n pity they do lose it. At thirteen especial ly the earlier months of thirteen they are still able to set aside and dismiss from their minds almost any facts, no matter how audibly those facts have asked for recognition. Chil dren superbly allow themselves to be come deaf, so to speak, to undesirable circumstances; most frequently, -.of course, to undesirable circumstances li the way of parental direction; so that fathers, mothers, nurses, or gov ernesses, not comprehending that'this mental deafness Is for the time bclnjj entirely genuine, are liable to hoarse ness both of throat and temper. Thir teen Is an age when the fading of this gift or talent one of the most beau tiful of chllillmod begins to Impair its helpfulness, under the mistaken stress of discipline; hut Florence re tained something of it. In 11 moment or two Nohle Dill's disaffection toward poetry was altogether as If It did not exist. She coughed. Inclined her head a little to one side, in tier mother's manner of politeness to callers, and, repeating her deprecatory laugh, re marked, "Well, of course It's kind of a funny question for me to usk, of course." "What Is, Florence?" Noble Inquired absently. "Well what I was saying was that 'course it's sort of queer ine askln' If you liked poetry, of course, on ac count of my writing poetry the way I do now." She looked up at him with a bright rctidincKs to respond modestly to whatever exclamation his wonder should dictate; hut Noble's attention had straggled-, again. lie failed to comprehend what she had set before him. "Has she written your mother late ly?' he asked. Florence's expression denoted a menial condition slightly disturbed. "No." she said. "It's goin' to he printed In the North Mud Daily Orb ole." "What?" "My poem. It's jihoulrn' vi a men anyhow that's pi ili'l.v the best thing In tl,-.lBncss iiinI they're goln" fi have I: tomorrow, or else they'll have to settle' with me; Hint's one' thing -crttiin! I'll bring one over to your bouse and leave it at the door for yiut. Mr. Dill." Noble had hut a confused notion of' what she thus generally promised. However, he said, "Thank you," and nodded vaguely, "Of course, I don't know as It's so awful good," Florence admitted Insin cerely. "The family all seem to think It's something pretty much ; but 1 don't know if it Is or not. Really, 1 don't!" "No." said Noble, still confused. "I suppose not." "I'm half way through another one 1 think myseli'll he a good deal better. I'm not goin' as fast with it as I did with the other one, and I expect it'll he tpiite a ways ahead of this one." Sin' again emploved the deprecatory little laugh. "I don't know hov 1 do ii, myself. The family all think It's sort of funny ; I don't know how I do it myself; but that's t lie way It is. They all say if they could do it thev "re sure they'd know how they did it; but I guess they're wrong. 1 presume If you can do It, why It Just comes to you? Don't you presume that's the way It Is. Mr. Dill?" "I guess so." They bad reached bis gate, and lie stopped. "Vou'rorsure none of jour family have heard any thing today V" he asked anxiously. "From Aunt Julia? I uon t think they have." Ho sighed, nnd opened the gate. "Well, good evening. Florence." (ioiiil evening." ller eyes followed him wjs fully as lie pasod within Hip liiehiMiie; then she turned and walked 1 1 1 1 i I ! v toward her own home; but at ih coiner of the next fence she called ever her shoulder, "I'll leave it with .our mother for .von, If you're not home w hen I bring It." 'What';" he shouted, from the vi cinity of his front door. ' i ll leave it with jour mother." "Leave vvhatV "The poem !" "oh!' said Noble.
