An older woman might have gone

was only a child, nl'ler all.

Anne, smiling demurely over hei

trimly braided, and a rather pale,
small face with channing and regular
features. Anne bud "admirers," too.
Cherry reflected, looking at her, to
night, bul neither she nor Alix had
ever been engaged-engaged-en

"Aren't yoi! home early?" said Dr
Strickland, rubbing Ids cheek against
bis youngest daughter's cheek in
sleepy content. He was never quit?;

and the older girls bad written her,

Martin was a mining engineer; he

but was visiting bis cousin In the val

tramped to the big forest five miles
away with the Stricklands, and there
had been a picnic to the mountain top,

It was Just after that mountain pic

Sunday* as lt chanced, chat was her
eighteenth birthday, and on which
Martin and hts aunt were coming to
d imer. Allx had marked the occasion
by wearing a loose velvet gown in

On the contrary, she hud disgraced
herself and Infuriated Hong by decid

Hong had finally relegated her to the

that Martin, laughing joyously, extri
cated her, when, sticky and repentant,
she had called for help. It was Mar

apron, disentangling from the strings
the silky gold tendrils that were blow

girls laughed over this nonsense ap
preciatively, but there was more than
laughter In Cherry's heart.
From that moment tbe world was
changed. Uer father, her sister, ber
cousin had second pince, now. Cherry
had put out her Innocent little hand,
and had opened the gate, and had
passed through lt Into the world. That
hour was the beginning, and it had led
her surely, steadily, to the other hour
tonight when she bad been kissed,
and bad kissed in return.
".So-we walk home with young
men?" mused the doctor, smiling.
"Look here, girls, this little Miss Muf
fet wiJl be cutting you both out with
thiit young man, if you're not care
ful I"
Alli, deep lu her story, did not hear
him, but Anne smiled faintly, and
faintly frowned as she shook her
bead. She considered Cherry sufll
ciently precocious without Uncle Lee's
Ill-considered tolerance.
ile would have had them always
children, this tender, simple, innocent
Ur. Strickland. He was in many
ways a child himself. He had never i
made money In his profession ; he and
his wife and the two tiny girls had
had a hard enough struggle sometimes. 1
Anne and her own futher had Joined
the family eight years ago, in the1
same yeer that the Strickland patent
lire extinguisher, over which the doe
tor had been puttering for years, had
been sold. It did not sell, ns his
neighbors believed, for a million dol
lars, but for perhaps one-tenth of that
sum. It was enough, and more than
enough, whatever lt was. After
Anne's father died lt meant that the
doctor could live on In the brown
house under the redwoods, with his
girls-, reading, fussing with a new in
vention, walking, consulting with
Anne, laughing ut Alix, and spoiling
his youngest-born.
It was n perfect life for the old
man; ic was only lately that he begun
uneasily to suspect that they would
Rome day want something more, that
they would some day tire of . empty
forest and blowing mountain ridge,
and go away from the shadow of Mt.
Tnmalpais, and Into the world.
Anne, now-was she beginning to
fancy this young Lloyd? Dr. Strick
land was surprised with the fervor
with which he repudiated the thought. |
This young engineer, who had drifted
already Into a dozen different and dis
tant pinces, was not tho mau for stnld
little Anne.
"What did you want to 6ee Mr
Lloyd about tomorrow, Dad?" Cherry
Interrupted his thoughts to ask. .
"The rose vine. What did he say
about coming over, Cherry?"
Cherry remarked, between two rend
ing yawns, that Mr. Lloyd was coming
ovo. tomorrow al len o'clock, and
Peter, too
"Peter won't be UlUCb good!" A'lr

"You're awfully menn to Peter, ?late
lyl" she protested. Her father gave
her a shrewd look, with his good-night
kiss, and Immediately afterward both
the younger girls dragged their way
up to bed.
Allx and Cherry shared a bare,
woody-smelling room tucked away un
der brown eaves. The walls were of
raw pine, tb > latticed windows, In
bungalow fashion, opened Into the
flagrant darkness of the night. The
beds were renlly bunks, and above her
bunk euell girl had an extra berth, for
occasional guests. There was scant
prettiness In the room, and yet lt was
full of purity and charin. The girls,
like nil their neighbors, were hardy,
bred to cold baths, long walks, simple
hours, and simple food. In the soft
western climate they left their bed
room windows open the year round;
they liked to wake to winter dnmp
nnd fog, and go downstairs with blue
finger-tips and chattering teeth, to
warm themselves with breakfast nnd
the fire.
Allx rolled herself In n gray army
blanket, and was asleep In some sixty
seconds. Put Cherry felt that she was
floating In seas of new Joy nnd utter
delight, nnd that she would never be
sleepy again.
Downstairs Anne nnd the doctor sat
staidly on, the man dreaming with a
knotted forehead, the girl sewing.
Presently she ran a needle through
her fine white work with seven tiny
stitches, folded lt. nnd put her thimble

was fond of small conservational tngs,
assured him merrily. "Hut there must

"You're not sure, my dear?" he
asked, after some thought.
"Oh, no!" she answered. "It's Just
a fancy that persists In coming nnd
going." She got tr her feet, saying
brightly. "Well! we mustn't take this
too gravely-yet. It was only thnt I
wanted to be open and above-board
with you, uncle, from the beginning.

"Thnt's wdse and right !" ber uncle
