The House of Seven Gabi
By NATHANIEL HAWTHORNE
(Condenaation by Josephine Van Tasgel Brnorton.1
Of your courtesy, I beg you to call
this tale a romance, rather than a
novel: for it make? attempt to con
nect a bygone time with the present
that la even now drifting away from
us. It Is a legend, bringing with It
the mist of the past floating 'round
each character and event?even ' round
the old houae Itself.
Sometime? It drift? ?aide and you
catch a glimpse of older days^-day*
when Col. Pyncheon. out of pur* eov

Maul? of his hou?? and little plot
of land?day? when Maule cursed the
colonel for his sins sad foretold: "Ood
would give him blood to drink "?day?
when Thomaa Maule, ?on of the WIs
ard, built for Col. Pyncheon ovar his
father's very threshold the House of
the Seven Gables.
On the day when Hepxibah Pynch
eon trod her pride underfoot and
opened the little cent-shop, built ln
the front gable of tbe old house, there
were but few of th? Pyncheon blood
left. Judne Pyncheon, his son (who
died abroad and enters not Into this
tale), Hepxibah and her brother Clif
ford, little Phoebe Pyncheon (who
had come for a long visit) and a few
cousins, were all. The raoo of Maule
waa supposed extinct?at least there
was none known.
Long since Hepxibah had let one of
the gables to a daguerreotyplst nam
ed Hoi grave; and none others were
in the old house save herself and
Clifford (now pardoned out after serv
ing sentence for the supposed mur
der of an uncle), and littl* Phoebe.
Judge Pyncheon was the great man
of the town; but, despite his ever
ready smile and studied benevolence,
he was not greatly liked. Hepxibah
shrank away from him and Clifford
shrieked when he would have forced
hi? way in to see him.
Hepxibah and Clifford soarre left
tbe house even for th? garden: but
Phoebe and young Holgrave met
there: and the kindly mist made It
self thin between them till they saw
each other clearly and their hearts
drew close and love cam? to them?
but ?o softly and sweetly they knew
tt not for love, but called It by tbat
other sweet name?friendship.
Then Phoebe must needa go home?
and with her went all the sunshine:
and the mist drifted back?and all
the scant happiness that had come
with her to Hepxibah and Clifford for
a little fled away.
When she had gone, the Judge be

There arc going to be a number of inter
esting meetings here in the next few weeks
and eVery woman should avail herself of the
opportunity of getting, in touch with the big
movements on foot in the interest of better
conditions for women both in the home and
business world by carefully watching the
record given of these in the newspapers. ?
Only yesterday the second annual con
vention of the War Mothers of America

Baltimore, many Washington women attending..
Three well known women arc here representing the general
public at the Industrial Conference now in session and sixty-five

Y. W. C. AT will meet here October 20, 21 and 22. This meeting
will lead up to the international congress of working women
called by the National Women's Trade Union League of America

I feel certain that little sister does

possible that mother or brother can
not make her do so. For that reason
I would suggest that you quietly en

much admired by her, who can not
help but know of the condition of af

that rouge is allrtght but not In such

the nicest girls do use rouge now
and no one thinks the less of them,
probably because no one knows. The
girl who uses so much rouge that It
shows defeats her punt?se in that the
additional beauty or coloring that she
would have the world believe to be
hers is known to all the world as

hat through tbe hot? In the box.
He saw yellow goldenrod flowers,
and purple aster?. He ?aw brown, red
golden and purple leavea. He aaw
filmy cobweb lace, and ribbons tbe
color of soap hubblas, ?o that tbe hat
looked Juat like a patch of the woods,
when the leaves on the tree? have
been painted by Jack Frost. And the
hat waa very big. Uncle Wlgglly and
Nurse Jane were going to the moving
pictures that night
"Ha, ha! I have an Idea!" that
Uncle Wlgglly. "I can put that hat
on my head, acrooch down low and

"Now for tt!" said tb? bunny, and
he walked boldly out on the path right

The Pipslsewah gave one look at
the moving hat. He did not see Uncle
Wlgglly under It On and on went

Nurse Jane aaked. and when the
bunny told her how he had fooled
