"And as soon ai I can go," Cherry
added feverishly, "I shall Join Martin.

Peter sprang over the porch rall
and vanished, walking with swift ener

For the rest of the day Cherry lived
In a sort of daze of emotion ; some
times she seemed to be living two
lives, side by side. In the one was
her old happy relationship with Alix,
and even with Peter, the old Joking and
talking and gathering for meals, the
old hours In tho garden or beside the
Ure, and In the other was the confused
and troubled arid ecstatic conscious
ness of thc new relationship between
Peter and herself, the knowledge that
he did not merely admire her, did not
merely feel for her on unusual affec
tion, but that he was consumed by a
burning adoration of her slightest mo
tion, the tum of her wrist, the smile
she gave Kow at breakfast time, the
motion sha made when she stopped to
tie her shoe or raised her arm to break
an apple from the low, dusty branches.
The glory of being so loved enveloped
her like a great shining garment, and
her cheeks glowed softly rosy, nnd
there was a new and liquid softness,
a sort of shining glitter, In her blue
Peter was quiet that evening, and
was gone the next morning when the
sisters came out to breakfast. He lind
.'eft a message lo the effect that he
would not be at home that night, nnd
at four o'clock telephoned confirming
the message. Allx chanced to answer
the telephone, and Cherry, who was In
her room, heard Peter's name, and
stood still, listening with a shock of
Hut at eight o'clock that evening,
when she and Allx were sitting on the
porch, when the last ebbing pink of
the sunset had faded and great spiders
had ventured forth Into the dusk and
the dews, there was a sudden hail at
the gate, and Cherry knew that lt was
he I A flood of utter, Irrational hap
piness rose In her heart ; she had been
racked with hunger for the sound of
that voice; she had been restless and
unsatisfied, almost feverish with long
ing and doubt ; now peace caine again,
and content '
He eenie up to them, his glance
resolutely averted from Cherry, ex
plaining that he was lonesome, assur
ing them that everything went well
and making them laugh with nn ac
count of Justin Little's reception of
the new turn of affairs. "He seemed
absolutely dumfounded," Peter said.
H eemod Absolutely Dumfounded. 1
"He looked at the paper, read lt, j
laughed and said-in that little nerv
ous, smiling way of his-that bo felt
lt to be by no means conclusive-"
"I cnn bear him 1" giggled Alix.
"And I guess both you girls will
have to come In in a day or two,"
Peter continued.
"Cherry's going In to tho dentist to
morrow," sn ld Allx.
"Oh, so I nm I" Cherry said in a
rather strained voice.
She did not look at Peter, nor did
he at ln?r, but they felt each other's
thoughts like a spoken word.
"Had you forgotten?" Allx naked.
"I don't think PH go In, for I have
about a week's work here to do."
Peter left them, wltlu it one word
or look for Cherry, who went back to
the house with her sister in a most
agitated and wretched state of mind.
She bad the telephone In her band, to
caucel the engagement with ber den
tist, when Alix suddenly consented to
accompany her into town ; "and at
lunch time we'll take a chance on the
St. Francis, Sis," Alli said, Innocently,
"for Peter almost alway? lunches
there !"
Feeling thnt the question was se*?
tied, yet restless and unsatisfied still,
Cherry dressed for town ; they climbed
Into the car; Allx's firm bands, In yel- j
low chnmols gloves, snatched nt the
wheel ; the die was cast.
Yet at the station another change of
plan occurred, for ns Allx brought the i
car to the platform Anne came toward '
them from the arriving train, a gloved
and demure and smiling Anne, aux
lons, alie explained, to falk over this
newest development, and "whether lt
proved to he of any value or not," to
try to find out what Uncle Lee had
really wanted for them all, and then
agree to do that In a friendly manner,
out of court.
"My firs; feeling, when Frenny told
nie." 'Mt'"* Anne, chatting pleasantly In
the shade, "was one of such relief!
For I hadn't wanted all that money
one Mt," she confessed gally. "? only
wanted to do what was fair. Only
two or three nights ago I said to
Frenny that it really belonged to us
nil, and Inst night we talked and
talked about lt, and the result waa
that I said that I must see the girls
we three are the otdy ones concerned,
after all, and"-Anne's old half-merry
and hall-pouting manner was un
changed-"what we decide ls what
really matters I" she finished.
"Why, there ia no question that lt's
Daddy's handwriting," Cherry said,
with what, for her, was sharpness,
"and lt seema to me-lt seems to nie,
Anne-" she added, hesitatingly.
"That you have a nerve I" Allx fin
ished, not with any particular venom.
"That document throws tho case out
of court," she suld flatly. "Peter ls
confident of that!"
Anne's pale face flushed and her
eyes narrowed.
Cherry was flushed and uncomfort
able. There was an awkward pause.
"Ponrd?" shouted a trainman, with
a rising inflection. The sisters looked
at each other In a panic of haste.
"I can't leave this car here," Allx
exclaimed. "I've got to park her and
lock her and everything! Hun; get
on board, Cherry. I don't have te go
In, anyway-you've got a date!"
Cherry's heart leaped, sank coldly,
and leaped again, as with a swift nod
of parting she hurried for her train.
The other two women watched her
with forced interest as she climbed
on board mid as the train slipped
noiselessly out of sight. It curved
among the redwoods and was gone be
fore either spoke again. Then, as her
eyes met Anne's friendly, questioning
smile, Allx said awkwardly:
"I think the only thing to do is for
you and Justin to take this up with
Peter, Anne. I mean-I mean that
you were the ones who proposed to
bring lt Into court In the first place,

agreement with me la concerned, you
might just as well have gone back on
the train with Cherry. I hate to talk
this way-but we ali think you acted j
very-.well, very meanly]" Allx fin
ished rather flatly.
"Perhaps lt's Just aa well to under- !
stand each other]" Anne said, with
hot cheeks. They exchanged a few
inore sentences, wasted words and
angry ones, and then Anne walked
ever to a ?eat in the shade, to walt
tor another train, and Alix, with her
heart beating hard and her color high,
drove at mad speed back to the moun
tain cabin.
"I didn't ask her to lunch-I don't
carel" Allx said to herself, In agita
tion. "She and Justin know they're
beaten-they're Juat trying to patch
it up before lt's too late-I don't care
-I won't have her think she can get
away with any such scheme-I"

An event which for the pas! sev

to from lime to limo with happiest
anticipations is the annual reunion
of tho "girls" who attended tho

from 3.30 to t! at the elegant and |
hospitable rural bono? of Mrs. W. T. j

number of Hie grandmothers of the
