Keeping the Coffee Pot Sweet.
IF there's anything that spoils a breakfast it's a carelessly
kept coffee pot. Put a tablcspoonful of carbonate of
soda into it, fill it nearly full of water, and let it boil for a
.little while. Then rinse thoroughly several times with
'warm water.
This Day in Our History.

Cynthia explained.
"Where are your hat and coat?"
Mrs. Livingstone asked, glancing
around.
"Upstairs, of course." Dora spoke
before Cynthia could reply. "Tou
would not expect as careful a girl
a Cyn to leave them lying; around
down here would you. mother?"
Mrs. Livingstone smiled again,
hut- more naturally now. "Then
you have been In for some time,
Cynthia." she observed. "In that

significant lift of the eyebrows,

Then, to Mr. Stewart "I know that

"Thank you." Mr. Stewart said
formally. "Goodnight."
,Dcra frowned with vexation at
the calm manner In which her
mother Ignored her suggestion and
at Gerald's submission to the mat
ron's edict. Some of this vexation
she uttered to Cynthia as the two
girls were on their way upstairs to
dress for the evening.
"I wish mother were not so mag
isterial!" she complained 'The
cool way In which she brushes aside
my Ideas Is the limit."

But Cynthia's thoughts were else
where, and she did not reply.
"By the way." Dora remarked
later, looking Into Cynthia's room
from the passage between that and
her own room, "I am much obliged
to you for following my lead so
quickly and going Into the library
to talk to Gerald. I could not 'ex
plain then what the matter was.
To tell the truth. I did not want
mother to know I had been In there
"Why not" Cynthia pulled her
self out of her own reflections to
ask this natural Question
"Because she doesn't like me to
talk to any man except Milton,"

that for many days she had atood
In that one spot without food and

"I don't see why she need have

"All the more reason why It was

"No": Cynthia forced a smile. "I

"Would you rather not go to the

Gerald Stewart?"
"Indeed I would not!" The an

looked relieved.
"Well, I'm glad you're colng with

"I fancy you will manage to

Cynthia remarked? "And now, my

I shall be late to dinner."
"There Is always such a rush
nowadays that I never have a

Cynthia Promises.
"All right." Cynthia agreed. "Ws

She turned to the mirror and went
on with her dressing. She felt that
she ought to tell her cousin of her

want to do so now. She could not
trust herself to speak of the mat

"May I look at jour work?" asked

"Tour word Is of no- vstfue,' re
plied Lillian, "but this I will do. I

After that you may t.0 away or stay

"Very well. Fetch me wrltlnr

"Certainly, slgnora, I trust this

And what I say will be true." he
added meaningly.
"1 see," said Lillian. She went
to the table upon which the Italian,
had spread ink, pen. and paper. She
wrote her letters with a firm hand.
"It is possible that you may re
ceive the whole sum at either one
of these addresses. Go to Mrs. Bor
radale first." Lillian handed him
the two letters as she spoke. "Fall
ing there go to Miss Vassell. who
lives close by. If Mrs. Borradale Is
not at the Towers she Is at Helm

take me all day to go and return,"
he said.
"Yes, If Mrs. Borradale Is obdu

I have a complete statement of the
mystery of Adderley Manor written
out, and that It will become publlo

ask her this question, too: Why

"At once, slgnora. Ah, and luck
ily here Is Marietta with your
breakfast"
As he spoke the Italian girl en
tered the room with a tray upon
which was spread fare meager
enough but possible, from Lillian's
point of view Marietta's brow
was still dark, and she glanced sus
piciously at Pietro and the fair Eng
lishwoman. She stopped and picked
up a knife which lay where It had
fallen upon the floor, and quickly
concealed It In the folds of her
dress.
"Frederlco awaits you with the
organ. Marietta," said" Pietro. "You
will go out at once and not return
till night. You understand?"
The girl nodded and made no an

A little later Lillian was left
alone. She made what toilette she
could and exchanged the- coarse

She slept through the day, and she
bad barely risen from her bed and
made a faint attempt to eat some
food when Pietro returned. UIs

contrast to his manner of the morn

He kicked a chair angTily,
"Yortiave brought nothing?" She
had risen In good spirits, contempla

"Nlen,te." ha .muttered. "I hare)

"Did they refuse?" Lillian clench

She had been so- confident of sue

fears of the night were indeed veri
