but people steadily refused to do so, his

himself. If he asked people to dinner ev*
eryono expected a frolic. Jimmy marries
Bella Kr o wies: they live together a year
and are divorced. Jimmy's friends ar
range to celebrate the first anniversary
of his divorce. The party is In full awing
when Jimmy receives a telegram from his
Aunt Sei.na, who will arrive in four hours
to visit him and his wife. Jimmy gets his
funds from Aunt Selina and after he mar
ries she doubles his allowance. He neg
lects to tell her of his divorce. Jimmy

I the men consider lt a good Joke. Harbi
son pleads with Kit to tell him the real
! situation of things. She finally tells him
! of Bella's Incarceration in the basement.
The all Important question arises as to
who ls to prepare the meals and perform
i the other household duties. Harbison fin
ally solves the matter. He writes out
? slips containing- the various departments
of his or her duties.
CHAPTER VU. (Continued.) .
Well, lt ended by Jim's graciously
permitting Bella to remain-there be
ing nothing else to do-and by his
magnanimously agreeing to keep her
real identity from Aunt Selina and Mr.
Harbison, and to break the news of
her presence to Anne and the rest It
created a sensation beside which
Anne's pearls faded away, although
they cams to the front again soon
Jim broke the news at once, gather
ing everybody but .Harbison and Aunt
Selina in the upper hall. He was'
palpitatingly nervous, but he tried to
carry it off with a high hand.
"It's unfortunate," he said, looking
around the circle of faces, each one
frozen with amazement, and just a
suspicion, perhaps, of Incredulity.
"It's pertlcularly unfortunate for her.
You all know how high-strung she 1B,
and if the papers should get hold of it
-well, we'll all have to make it as
easy as we can for her."
With Jim's eye on them, they all
?wallowed the butler story without a
gulp. But Anne was indignant.
"It's like Bella," she snapped. "Well,
she has made her bed and she can He
on it. I'm sure I shan't make it for
her. But if you want to know my
opinion, Mr. Harbison may be a fool,
but you. can't ram two Bellas, both nee
Knowles, dowp Miss Caruthers' throat
with a stick."
We had not thought of > that before
and every one looked blank. Finally,
however, Jim said Bella's middle name
was Constantia, and we decided to
call her that But it turned out after
ward that nobody could remember lt
In a hurry, and generally when we
wanted to attract her attention, we
walked across the room and touched
her on the shoulder. It was quicker
The name decided, we went down
stairs In a line to welcome Bella, to
try to make her feel at home, and to
forget her deplorable situation. Leila
had worked herself into a really sym
pathetic frame of mind.
"Poor dear," she said, on the way
down. "Now don't grin, anybody, just
be cordial and glad to see her. I hope
she doesn't cry: You know the spells
We stopped outside th? door, and
everybody tried to look cheerful and
sympathetic and not grlnny-which
was as hard as looking as if we had
had a cup of tea-and then Jim
threw the door open and we flied in.
Bella was comfortably reading by
the fire. She had her feet up on
a stool and a pillow behind her head.
She did not even look at us for a min
ute; then she merely glanced up as
she turned a page.
"Dear me," she said mockingly,
"what a lot of frumps you all are! I
had hoped it was some one with my
Then she went on reading. As Leila
said afterward, that kind of person
ought to be divorced.
Aunt Selina came down Just then
and I left everybody trying to ex
plain Bella's presence to her, and fled
to the kitchen. The Harbison man
appeared while I was sitting hopeless
ly In frpnt of the gas range, and show
ed me about it
"I don't know that I ever saw one,"
he said cheerfully, "but I know the
theory. Likewise, by the same token,
this tea kettle, set on the flame, will
boil. That is not theory, however.
That 1B early knowledge. 'Polly, put
the kettle on; we'll all take tea.' Look
at that Mrs. Wilson. I didn't fight
bacilli with boiled water at Chlcka
mauga for nothing."
And then he' let out the policeman
and brought him into the kitchen. He
was a large man, and his face was a
curious mixture of amazement alarm
and dignity. No doubt we did look
queer, still in parts of our evening
clothes and I in the white silk lace
petticoat than belonged under my
gown, with a yellow and black pa
jama coat of Jimmy's as a sort of
"This ls Officer Flannigan," Mr.
Harbison said. "I explained our un
fortunate position earlier In the morn
ing, and he ls prepared to accept our
hospitality. Flannigan, every person
in this house has got to work, ss I
also explained to you. You are ap
pointed dish-washer and scullery
The policeman looked dazed. Then,
slowly, like dawn over a sleeping
lake, a light of comprehension grew
in his face.
"Sure," he said, laying his helmet
on the table. "I'll be glad to be doing
anything I can to help. Me and Mrs.
Wilson-we used to be friends. It'a

many the time I've opened the car
nage door for her, and she with her
head in the air, and for all that, the
pleasant smile. When any one around
her was having a party and wanted a
special officer, it was Mrs. Wilson that
always said, 'Get Flannigan, Officer
. Timothy Flannigan. He's your man.' "
My heart had been going lower and
lower. So he knew Bella, and he
knew I was not Bella, although he had
not grasped the fact that I was usurp
ing her place. And the odious Harbi
son man sat on the table and swung
"1 wonder If you know,"'he said,
? looking around him, "how good lt is
to see a white woman so perfectly at
home in a civilized kitchen again,
after two years of food cooked by a
filthy Indian squaw over a portable
So perfectly at home! I stood in
the middle of the room and stared
around at the copper things hanging
up and the rows of blue and white
crockery, and the dozens and hun
dreds of complicated-looking utensils,
whose names I had never even heard,
and I was dazed. I tried with some
show of authority to instruct Flanni
gan about gathering up the. soiled
things, and, after listening in puzzled
silence for a minute, he stripped off
his blue coat with s tolerant smile.
"Lave 'em to me, miss," he said.
"Me and Mrs. Wilson-W<

mayn't give 'em a Turkish bath, which

He rolled up his sleeves, found a

the door, and tied lt around his neck
with the ease of practise. Then he
cleared off the plates, eating what

vaccinated, I asked to be done be

needed me arms, but dldnt need me

He threw his head back and laugh
ed. Mr. Harbison laughed too. Oh.
we were very cheerful! And that aw-j
ful stove stared at me, and the kettle
began to hum, and Aunt Selina sent
down word that she was not well, and
would like some omelet on her tray.
I knew that lt was made of eggs,
but that was the extent of my knowl
edge. I muttered an excuse and r??i
up-stalrs to Anne, but she was still
sniffling over her necklace, and said
she didn't know anything about
omelets and didn't care. Food would
choke her. Neither of the Mercer
girls knew either, and Bella, who was
still reading in the den, absolutely de
clined to help.
"I don't know, and I wouldn't tell
you If I did. You can get yourself
out, as you got yourself in," she 6ald
nastily. "The simplest thing, if you
don't mind my suggesting It, is to
poison the coffee and kill the lot of ua.
Only, if you decide to do it, let me
know, I want to live Just long enough
to see Jimmy Wilson writhe!"
Bella is the kind of person who gets
on one's nerves. She finds a griev
ance and hugs it; ehe does ridiculous
things and blames other people. And
I went down-stairs despondently,
and found that Mr. Harbison had dis
covered some eggs and was standing
helplessly staring st them.
"Omelet - eggs. Eggs - omelet.
That's the extent of my knowledge,"
he ca!d, when I entered. "You'll have
to como to my assistance."
It was then that I saw the cook
book. It was lying on a shelf beside
the clock, and while Mr. Harbison had
his back turned I got lt down. It was
quite clear that the domestic type of
woman was his ideal, and I did not
care to outrage his belief in me. So I
took the cook book Into the pantry
and read the recipe over three times.
I When I cam? back I knew lt by heart,

"Pine!" he said. "Suppose you give

exactly, "you take two eggs-"

"WTho else but you would have

"Separate them," I said easily. No,
I didn't, know what it meant. I hoped
he would; I said it as casually as I
could, and I did not look at him. I
knew he was staring at me, puzzled.
"Separate them!" be said. "Why,
they aren't fastened together!" Then
he laughed. "Oh, yes, of course!"
When I looked he had put one at each

HUMOR IN THE AUCTION ROOM
Stout Lady More Than Met Her Match
When She Stirred Up Tired
I witnessed the following funny In
cident in one of the largest Edinburg
auction rooms. A big, stout lady, ap
parently of the broker class, had en
sconced herself comfortably in an arm
chair, and in due course began bidding
for a table, on which a tired-looking
man, for want of something to sit
upon, affectionately leaned. Competi
tion was brisk, but in the end the ta
ble was knocked down to the stout
lady, who no sooner recognized that
it was now her property, than, stretch
ing out her arm, she sharply rapped
her knuckles on it, exclaiming: "Hey,
man!" But the tired-looking man paid
no attention, so she next poked him
with her umbrella and said with
greater asperity than ever: "Lean
off the table, will you? It's my prop
erty, and you'll scratch it"
Ihe leaner regarded her fixedly for
a moment or two, but did as request
ed. He did more, however, for pulling
a scrap of paper from his pocket he
put it under the lady's nose, with the
quiet remark: "D'ye see that?" and he
next indicated a corresponding num
ber on the armchair she was seated
on. "Well, then," he continued, when
she had acquiesced with a wondering
nod of the head, "git off; it's my
chair, and I want to sit down." Ana;
