"No. I don't want no orphan." said Miss Belinda, with a decisive shake of her head. "I've got my hands full now with chickens and young turkeys coming on and bees and currant bushes without bothering with a high flying youngster that'll scare the chicks and get stung by the bees, although they're warranted stingless, mind you. and to trample on my berry bushes. No. ma'am—no orphans for me!" This time Miss Belinda's lips clicked together with a little sound of finality. "I'm sorry. Belinda, because the home is jest about running over with 'em. 1 was telling the matron this morning that I knew there were plenty of folks in Little River who could give a good home to some of those young sters if they wasn't so mean and stingy. Of course I don't mean you." added tbe local member of the visiting committee of the Riverview Orphans' home. "But sometimes when 1 think of all the spare beds, all made up clean and white, in tbe empty homes around here it makes my blood bile to look upon them poor orphans so crowded for room that Mrs. Hill says they'll have to sleep in rows crosswise of tbe beds pretty soon." "1 want to know!" ejaculated Be linda. witb a startled glance at Erne line Brown. "1 think you better stick to tbe truth. Emetine, and not exag gerate. Now. honest and true, bow many orphans too many have they got up there?" "Ten." replied Mrs. Brown flatly. "Humph!" snorted Belinda. In and out of the scarlet wool went her big wooden knitting needles as she rapidly constructed a shawl to comfort some sbiveriug shoulders when the summer was over. Mrs. Brown watch ed her neighbor expectantly. With a family of seven sons and daughters under her own rooftree she was safe in tbe condemnation of tbe uncrowded homes of Little River. Here was Be linda Downs, now a handsome, well preserved spinster of forty-two, of in dependent menus, possessing a snug home, a tiny income sufficient for her modest wants, n little shaggy pony and a rusty phaeton to carry her about tbe countryside. Tbere was neither man, woman nor child to call upon Belinda for service, for she was without rela tives, having outlived them all. "1 should think this was just tbe place for an orphan to be happy in," suggested Mrs. Brown, throwing an admiring glance around tbe small do main where orchard and garden were green aud thrifty in spring bloom. "I've got orphans enough as It la," snapped Belinda shortly. Mrs. Brown smiled as she saw tbe fatherless and motherless strays which tbe lonely woman bad gathered about ber. There was a lame duck which Belinda bad rescued after a hunter had brought it down witb a glancing shot; a carrier pigeon which had dropped exhausted on her doorstep; a mongrel dog of many colors which bad been faithfully scrubbed by Miss Belinda and wua now mucb cleaner if not bap pier than in bis soiled state; tbere was also a fine collection of homeless cats. Indeed. Miss Belinda's place might have been another orphanage, so thick ly-was It populated with waifs. "Would you rather, have a boy or a girl?" asked Mrs. Brown craftily. Bnt Miss Belinda was not to be caught that way. "I'd rather bave a cat," she said. "Yon ought to be ashamed. Belinda Downs, tbe way you do talk! If you could see them poor young ones look ing so wistful every time a visitor cornea, hoping It's somebody to offer a home, you'd harness up Dolly this very instant and go and fetch one *way." "Might as well bring two while I was about it," remarked Misa Belinda ironically. "I've beard it said that it's cheaper for two to live than one. Ain't you beard tbat?" "No. indeed, if that's tbe case, nine people ought to live for nothing, and I know we don't do tbat" Mrs. Brown Jerked on her eunbonnet shrugged ber fat shoulders and without another word waddled down tbe path tbat led to tbe gate between tbe two pieces. "Take an orphan, indeed!" sniffed Belinda tor the hundredth time since tbe Riverview home bad been erected. "Humph!" she ejaculated, aim tor the hundredth time. Nevertheless, as soon aa dinner was over Belinda did harness op shaggy Httle Dolly, and. climbing into the phaghnn and boldlar the lioee very high in her mltted banda ehe drove tferengh the pine woods down to the R iverview home. -rd like to look at aame orphans." «ft* Belinda to tbe matron wlwn aha w«f «eted in the darkened part« .of the homo.

Belinda's heart was thumping rapidly while she inter viewed the little girl for ilie lust mo ment before giving her decision. The child was shy and gave timid, breath less little whispering answers, aud Be linda loved her the more. "Her name Is Bessie Carson. Her mother died iu the city hospital Iasi March, and their records say that the child's father is dead. You can keep her for awhile, and if you are satisfied you can take out full papers of adop tion if you wish to. Miss Browu." "I guess I'll want to do that." said Miss Belinda ns she urose to go. "When will Bessie be ready?" she ask ed. with a delightful sense of owner ship In the dainty morsel of babyhood j before ber. "This afternoon." said Mrs. Hill. "You won't lind her much trouble. She's a quiet little thing and speaks of her mother and the little baby that died, and. strangely enough, she asks for her father. Where's your father Bessie, dear?" asked the mutrou, bend ing down. "He'll be back in a little while." said Bessie, running to the window, "i guess i better look for him. badu't I?" "Quaint, isn't she?" whispered Mrs. Hill us she let Miss Belinda out. "Very nice little girl." said Miss Be linda. trying to keep the happy spar kies out of her eyes, for it did not seem right to grasp so much happiness as was promised in the possession of little Bessie Carson. "I'll drive down after Bessie just before supper." All tbe rest of tbe day she was very busy preparing for her orphan visitor. There was a small bed to drag down from the attic and place beside ber own. and it bad to be made up with all the miniature bedclothing which she had used as a child. There were old fashioned dolls and other toys to be resurrected from hair trunks and brushed and reburuisbed. and tbere was a batch of delicious ginger cookies to be made so that she might fashion a dozen gingerbread men and elepuauts with curraut eyes for the delectation of little Bessie. At last when all was in readiness and tbe little girl bad been happily transferred to the phaeton and allowed to drive the gentle pony home there was never such unalloyed bliss ns shone in tbe faces of Miss Belinda and ber little orphan. The child loved Miss Belinda and clung to ber witb affec tion when she bud a chance, and Miss Belinda was almost ashamed of tbe op portuuities she afforded Bessie for showing ber affection. "It certainly can't harm anybody to enjoy l>eing loved." protested Miss Be linda to ber sterner self as she brush ed away a tear. "Is you crying. Miss Linda?" asked Bessie wistfully. "Just a teenty bit. dear, because you love me so much." smiled Belinda, bending to kiss her charge. "1 smile when you love me." con fided Bessie. "It makes me feel so good here." She placed n tiny baud ou her heart. Misa Belinda kissed ner again. That happened after Bessie bad been there three months. Tbe adoption papers bad all been made out and filed and Bessie Carson had become Bessie Downs when one afternoou tbe gate latch clicked sharply, and a tall man strode up tbe path aud looked strangely down at little Bessie playing with ber dolls at Miss Belinda's feet. From ber chair on the verunda Miss Belinda arose witb a sinking feeling at her heart. This man was not from the home, although there was a strange familiarity In hla tall, lean figure, his tunned cheeks, with tbe firm, beardless Ups and t-biu. He did not look at Miss B e l i nda , but be posh ed- back blSc hat and. held out bis hands to little Bessie. "Bess! Darling little Bess! Don't yon know daddy?" he asked boaraely. With a startled cry the child looked at him earnestly and then ran straight to his arms with toe unfailing instinct of tbe child for its parent. Then tbe man looked up and saw MlsiT ' Belinda ' standing." white and abaking. before him. "I'm sorry, ma'am, but It's my little girl, and— Mercy! Linda Downs, what are you doing here with my Bessie?" Iu toe long, cool twilight there was time to relate bow James Stearns oad married tbe girl be bad been engaged to when Belinda Dowus met him in the west so many years ago and they bad both fallen In love In apite of hla previous engagement, but be bad been true to bis promise and married tbe girl who bad been Bessie's moth er; bow one of the devastating floods of tbe west bad separated tbe little family for mouths, and at last the wife and child bad gone east in the hope of finding some of Mrs. Stearns' relatives. She bad been taken III In New York, registered by mistake nn der tbe name of Canon, bad died and left tbe homeless little Bessie to too care of stranger bands.
