Ferguson, tho town hiiukor, portly
and prosperous, striding down tho main
street ouo delicious summer morning,
nnot his niece on her way to give a uiu-
bIo lesson and Htoppod to touBO her a
trltlo ovor tho Hltiiiitlon.
"Lesda, Gordon Kills Is cxpoctod
back next week!"
"So I've heard, Undo Uniee."
Tho tone was nonchalant, hut hIiu had
colored rosily up to tho crisp, reddish
gold curls around hur white forehead.
"It will bo a great thing for Linden
vllle If lie docldoB to Bottle down hero.
I hope," with ponderous archness, "that
you will try to persuade him I"
The Hush faded, leaving her looking
pale and very proud.
"I shall have nothing to nay In the
matter," she answered coldly. "It Is
unlikely that I shall even meet him."
"Nonsense!" Ferguson cried, drop
ping his rallying air. "Of course you
will! We'll nil linvo a chance to renew
our old acquaintance with ns tine a fel
low iih ever struck out to make his for
tune. Marian Is to give a big welcom
ing dnneo for him. Hortense Is eager
for pleasure, you know," ho added le
niently, "and we like to Indulge her."
Lesda nodded, evincing polite Inter
eat. Until the mother of Hortense had
mnnicd her undo twolvo mouths pre
vious she and her mint had lived with
Bruce Ferguson, directing his house
hold. Itut with the coming of a bride
possessed of a grown daughter nil this
was changed. So T.ucludn Ferguson,
having got together hor few heirlooms
and some furniture, had moved Into a
little house she owned on tho outskirts
of the rich, bustling manufacturing
The new mistress and her daughter
were left In victorious possession, and
Ilruce Ferguson, with n man's obtuse
ness, did not realize whnt the Inevita
ble change In tholr manner of living
must mean to such fastidious women
as his sister and niece. IIo lind set
tled an Income on I.uclndn, but Lesda
declared that her music teaching would
bring her In nil tho money she would
require. Of the deprivations and
makeshifts necessary to present a se
rene front to n critical world nelUier
"So you'll surely come," Ferguson
went on breezily. "I'm going to do tho
Udng In lino style have music and
caterers down from Chicago and all
that sort of thing."
Tho expression of proud reserve
deepened on tho countenance of Lesdn
Ilevere. Hhe had an odd, exquisite
stylo of beauty, foreign to her class
and nationality. 'While her features
were not classically perfect, there wns
about her face n look of spirituality,
of distinction, that attracted and held
"I hope you'll have a beuutlful time,"
she said courteously. "Itut I shan't
go, Uncle Uruco."
IIu stared at her a moment In puz
zled surprise. Then ho laughed heart
lly und brought his clinched fist down
lu the palm of Uio other hand.
"Nothing to wear, I'll bet n nickel!
l'oor Miss Flora McFllmsey!" For ho
saw by her quick, irrepressible smilo
Uint ho had guessed right "Well, you
will have a dress, and ono sent to
you ready made from tho city at Uiatl
Why, Hortense won't wenr a thing
thufs made In Llndenvlllcl Now,

She had been about to speak to nsk
him to permit her to choose the gown
herself, Dut, after all, what right had
she to make suggestions to him? Wns
lie not exceedingly generous to promlso
her u costumo nt all?
"Nothing, except that you are mighty
good to think of such a thing! Yes
"That's right!" ho commented coi
dhilly nnd passed on.
Not until tho very morning of tho
dny set for tho lmportnnt function did
tho expected box arrive Hortense
und her mother hud been up In Uio
metropolis ordering their own attire.
They had doubtless bought this nt the
same time. Itut, although she had rend
lu grateful amazement tho sum men
tloned on Uio receipted bill that hud
been forwnrded to her by mnll, It was
with a Iuart prophetically tilled with
doubt Unit Lesdu opened the box,
while, her aunt looked ovor her shoul
der. Layer after layer of tissue paper
was laid aside. Lesdn shrank buck
with a little cry of dUmny as Uio
gleaming, lustrous, costly fabric wbh
"What have I done to make Undo
1 truce's wife nnd daughter dislike mo
so?" she whispered. "They knowyou
know, Aunt Luelnda thut I can nover
wear such a shade I"
Lucluda Ferguson shook her head.
Tears of disappointment camo Into her
gentle old eyes us she gazed down ou
tho expensive robe, It was of raw,
crudo, bricklsh pink Uio very last huo
that a girl with hair tho copper color
of Lesda's dare wear.
Tho girl laid back the layers of tis
sue paper wlUi Ungors that trembled.
"I'm sorry, becauso Undo Ilruce
meant so well. And thfii," with llpa
that would quiver, "1 gel a cliance to
go to n dunce so seldom!"
The long, hot, golden day lugged
by. Never hud the giving of music
lessons seemed ho tedious nor hud tho
pupils ever appeared so tiresome,
t'omlug home Just ns the relentless sun
was dropping down tho west, the girl
brightened with wan pteusuro at sight
of the little old grny cottage she culled
I home, lu the house she knew would
bo balm the balm of sympathy, of
, rest, of love.
"I'll lmve a baUi and a fresh gown,"
' she told herself, "nnd get out here lu
. the slleueo mid the sweetness and read
! until I forget there are guy people
dancing the night. n way und 1 not
one of thenil"
Not for worlds would she linvo ad
i mltted oven to her own heart that It
I was less the social exhilaration she
missed Until the wee, hidden hope Mio
hud harbored of seeing once more a
well remembered durk heud, of feel
lug tho warm clasp of n strong, lltni
bund und of meeting tho half tender,
half quizzical glance of expressive blue
She wns very resolute lu reading tho
tiny volume of Tennyson she had
brought when after supper she camo
out Into tho fragrant solitude. Her
gown was of simple lawn that trailed
about hor feet In a sweep as of broken
waves. Her urms shone pearl fair
through Its transparency.
The afterglow faded. Shadows
crept stealthily up tho garden ways.
It was not possible to read longer.
Anyhow sho hud hurdly boon aware
of that which she was reading, Now
tho guests wore gathering nt hor
uncle's Imposing home. Lights were
blazing and the guy music from tho
city resounding. And now sho closed
her eyes, drifting nwuy Into a reverie,
vurlhued, melodious, kaleidoscopic, bo
absorbing thut sho did not notice tho
stopping of it carriage at tho gate nor
the heavy footstep inullled by the thick
"I wonder If a kiss would wuken
fieri" meditated n quizzical voice.
"I'm not" She started to her feet,
the Hooding light of tho warm, young
midsummer moon full on her face.
"Gordon!" sho murmured.
Older, heavier, manlier than the
young fellow who had gone nwny, there
was sUll the admiration lu his eager
eyes, Uio suillo of tenderness about tho
square cut lips.
"You're n nice girl," ho cried, holding
her cold, slight hands lu his warm,
heavy pressure, "never to come to n
party given in tho honor of your old
friend! I looked for you everywhere.
Your uncle said you had promised him
you would come. So he sent mo to
bring you, or, rather," ho laughed, "I
asked him If I might not come for you.
It wns the old childish name thut no
one else hnd called her.
"But I can't, Gordon!" She wns blush
ing like a rose. "Not In this old gown!"
Ho glanced over her critically In be
wilderment. "Isn't Uiat the-Uio right thing? It's
Just stunning. You look like an Un
dine a silver birch Incurnnted! All
pnle green and white except for a
crown of gold!" And this audacious
young man stooped to touch the shin
ing coronet with reverent lips,
"Lessle, you must know why I've
I come back!" His voice dropped to a
! coaxing cadence. "I've come for you!
Dear, have I startled you? Well, come
up to tho dance, and I'll promlso to bo
dumb until tho last waltz."
"In a dress that cost a quarter n
ynrd nnd that I made myself?" she
queried, her volco tremulous with ex
citement. "Come for your uncle's snke!" he
begged. "Every one hero in Llndon
vllle knows you. It will bo gront fun!
And then, Lessle, como for my sake!"
It was great fun. The verdict that
tho girl In Uio sen green gown, with
j cheeks like wild roses, was tho hello of
Uio ball was practically unanimous.
Only Hortense and her mother ex
changed a glanco of dark and signifi
cant disappointment when Bruce Fer
guson, smiling Indulgently if obtusely,
whispered: "Cophetua up to date! Not
