Through the balls, on the stairs,
there were burrylngs.nnd scurrying

joining room, Philip Klrkwood heard
maidservant wrrstllnt, hopefully
with that most exasperating of mod

Ins. Her patience and determination
won his approval, but availed nothing
for her purpose. In tbe outcome the
telephone triumphed, and tbe maid
gave up tbe- unequal contest.

short and sturdy fellow, extremely III
at ease. Drawing a small taboret to

placed thereon a tray, deferentially Im
