Theie were many apologies for nm

gill sat down al her willing table and
punted out her lteatl to John Thomp

that she did not really know him and
that he might not be milted to her. Hut

She would go. She would not piomlse.
but she would go, would talk to him,
would ree, and then, perhaps--

She intended visiting an old fchoolmate,
one ot tlie scmlnury git Is, the one who
had introduced her to the young man In
Jaekvoi' nt the academy dance. And
tit Hie etui of three dnys she was toady
to s'tnit on the mot row.
She undeistood heisclt well. Never
had she known any one who In the
smallest degi eo hnd entered her heait.
At school she had studied long and
late, and gone home finally with a
card of honor. The life of the country
town was galling to the gltl. Her
naturally sensitive temperment thafed
within the narowness of her life Such
an adventure as flic had now started
In ii'ion was but natural to her.
She did not Inform John Thompson
of the date of her in rival. So. when
the train at last whliled Into the sta
tion at Jackson uho saw no familiar
face. Her cheel weie aglow as she
stepped from the platfoitn of the coach
to the ground. Soon she would see

At last the carriage flopped, the
door was opened. The girl alighted.
The vehicle had drawn up before a
gloat stone and bilek house In what
appeared to be a fashionable patt of
town eumpaiod to the dlsttlcts which
she had pased on her way fiom the
She told the driver to wait for her,
nnd she ran lightly up the wall: to the
pinch. JuKt ns she pushed the button
of the bell she noticed n woman dart
away from one of the fiont windows.
Jn another Instant the door was
opened, and by a woman.
"Mr. John Thompson lives here, does
he not."' Inquired Margniet with a
tremor in iter voice.
The woman looked al her queeily,
fixedly for an Instant, then teplled.
"Yes, won't you come InV"
From the hall the girl was ushuied
Into a pallor on the loft. The woman
followed her. About her mouth there
played u little smile of curlimlty and
lnt"iost and her eyes weie quizzically
studying the gltl.
"Is Mr. Thompson busy?" asked
"No," was the woman's icply, "what
would jou like or him'.'"
The gill looked up stat tied. "Why-
why," she tftammered, "It's a little
mutter of purely poisonal business."
And then she exclaimed suddenly,
"Maybe you ate his sister, are you?"
Again the queer look in the woman's
