The Life of the Party
Living Dr. Gray comfortably en
sconce! in an armchair beside Dad
dy’s bed with one of his beloved
books on psycho-analysis in his hand
1 went t° my own room to make up
my mind whether I would go or not.
Curtiss Wright had gone. Hours
ago T had heard his car start.
“Christmas Elv*,” I murmured,
and with the words a sense of con
suming loneliness crept ever my
heart. The reflection in the cheval
mirror showed that the days of con
finement had left me pallid and wan.
1 don’t know how it is with other
girls, but for me, happiness is the
greatest beautifier in the world.
Of course I wouldn’t go with Marj
«nd Bob when they came. It would
not be right after I had told Curtiss
Wright that I had to stay at home.
Walking to the window. I raised
'the shade. Holly wreaths with vivid
red berries gleamed at the windows
of our neighbors’ home. Christmas
Suddenly it came to me. I knew
what I’d do. Try on my new frock
of silver-cloth that Had come from
Now York that very afternoon. Just
dresg-'ng up for fun woold help kill
time and besides there was nothing
for me to dos for Dr. Gray had de
clar d he would not allow me back
at Daddy’s side.
I skipped to my closet door. There
It was. My silver gown shimmered
* an<l gleamed. Like some beckoning
adventuress, it tempted and allured.
1 took it gently from its satin
wrapped hanger and held it close to
mv fece. Its texture was cool and
smooth. I peeped into my bottom
drawer. The silver sandals from
■Rob’s were there. Anti silver hose,
like the dust of moonbeams. I’d
try everything all on.
T cannot imagine heaven without
rflothes and the life of an angel
would be dull indeed without gos
samer and lace.
.Tust asf was giving the last touch
to my bob in walked Mom Nellie
with a package in her hand.
T tore open the package. It was
a cap of rhinestones I had ordered
when I bought my gown.
“Been on de hall table ever sense
ah don’ know when.” Mom Nellie
“How did you ever happen to
bring it at just this very moment?”
I w’?s eagtr to put it on.
“tVhen vo’ loves somObo-dy, Mis’

lowed as how dis here being Chris’

Serious nature disappeared. I was
Just Sallie again. The carefree, fri
vcvlous anw happy-go-lucky bailie nt
former davs. Once1. more my spirit
of romance stirred and I felt a glow
go over my whole being.
"Oh, Mammy.” I finally asked,
realizing Mom Nellie was still there
"whnt mad'- vou say what you did
about- or—oh you know, about
Mister Curtiss?” And I began hum
min<r a tune.
“Honev chile' dfse ole eves ain’t

was gracefully changed.
Before <we alighted at the Wind

running along. Teid laughed and
chatted as if nothing had happened.
He had evidently decided not to re

have been too peeved and insulted
to have a good time, but for some

POTATOES: When paring pota
toes, do not take off a thick rind,

The Wreck did all the things th«*
she commanded. She opened t*<«
package of sandwiches, apportioned
half of them equally and wrapped up
the remainder.
“We’ll need the rest for breakfast.”
she said. "Get your bucket out again
and draw some water I'm dreadful
ly thirsty. We'll keep that hpttle of
coffee until morning "
They sat under a cottonwood, ate
sandwiches and drank out of the
bucket. When it grew dark he wad

-the-iights.- But they were pointed
the; wrong •'jtvayj so that the odven

would be better if they transferred
themselvse to the other side of the

“Do you honestly think you can
get that thing out of the water?”
she asked
He snorted scornfully
“Not that it's likely to be of any
particular use. even if you do." she
added. “I expect to he walking to

The Wreck strode away among the
cottonwoods For once he seemed
anxious to avoid argument When
he returned. Sally had curled herself
up under the tree with the coat over
her. and was preparing for slumber
“Cetter get a coat and find your
