J. Is It Not. a. Mistake? By PhU Moore NOTIIINO was left to b done now and It seemed to Chriatj Thaln, as she etood' back and urveyed her work, that It really al ready held the bride forvwbom It was Intended. The adjustable form which suppored It bad something of Delina Ray's slight, young contour. It was Quite easy to Imagine how the dress was going to look on that wonderful morning now only one day distant. The dress 'xwas her masterpiece. Nothing remained but to fold It la a box and wait for It to be taken away. . Outside the open window which let In the June air, there was a step and rustle and a girl leaned In orer the eill. She was a pretty girl, la a flimsy, y fancy way, like some gay little wayside lower. . v -Oh!" she exclaimed. "So It's done fehT- f-How do you like It. Doris?" Chris ty asked, smiling. "It's Just sweet. I wish It were mine." WTy, do you need a wedding dress?" Christy looked up In surprise. The g'rl hid her face on her folded arms and laughed ' shylj. "I might. You can never tell. Seems to me if Delina Ray can get a man' I ought to be able to. You going to talw It home, ChYisty?" v "No. Delina's going to send after It some time this evening. I'm going to put it in a box and leave it here for whoever comes. Mrs. Peel said she'd see to it. I've got to go out." Doris turned away. "Well, I've got to go home or Aunt Han will be Jay Ing me. I'm getting just about sick of Aunt Han. She wont let me have a single beau. Just because she's an old maid she seems to think that's the proper lot for all of us. And it Isn't. I'm going to be married. If I have to run away. You'll see." The girl was gone. Christy saw her running across the open yards toward home, a flying, fluttering little shape full of youth's buoyancy and folly. "I suppose she referred to Harry Crane," Christy thought. "I don't think she'd do so b,ad. if she were to marry him, but she cught not to dis obey her aunt. Yet, I had disobeyed roy mother that on time about Rush McKnight I'd have been witb him in Alberta now Instead of making beauti ful dresses for happy brides to wear. And it wouldn't have made any differ ence to mother not for long anyway. Well. I try to think everything's for the best." She sighed as she boxed the dress tenderly and closed the win dow and went out to 6upper. Christy had her dressmaking shop in the two front rooms of Mrs. Peel's, house and she boarded .with Mrs. Peel. After supper .Christy told Mrs. Peel that she would find the dress ready to hand to Delina's messenger when she sent after it; then she made ready and went to Mary Lake's. "Did you know "that Doris Is carry ing on perfectly awful orer Harry Crane?" Mary asked. Being an In valid, she cherished every bit of gossip she heard seriously. "Her Aunt Han was up here today complaining about her. She says she don't know what she will do with the glrL" . rd let her marry him," said Chris ty promptly. "Well, I guess It would be the best thing. But Han Atwell's awful set In her way. I didn't say much to her, for I knew it wouldn't do any good. By .the way, Christy, Carrie Coleman 'phoned over here yesterday aad said she'd had a letter from her cousin. Rush McKnight." Christy turned pale clear to the edges of her brown hair, where a gray thread or two was beginning to run like silver. But she kept the usual grip upon her emotions that she al ways did when that name was men tioned "He's Just cleared up $28,000 In wheat. It doesn't seem possible, does It? He expects to do as well next year If prices hold up. Then he says he's coming back to civilization. Car lie thinks there's somebody In Minne apolis he's Interested in. Probably hell settle down there " "Mary" Christy's voice was sharp as she Interrupted "do you want your dresses made loose or tight around the waist r She walked back home in the soft dusk. She smell ed lilacs all the way, and she walked on her heart her poor, starved heart that Rush Mc Knight had left . behind him desolate when he went to the wheat country. "That's all over." she thought "all over forever." As she neared her own door she met a girl hurrying toward her from the opposite direction. She was a housemaid of the Rays whom Christy already knew slightly because of several errands which had brought her to the house. "Oh. good evening. Miss Thain," she said, "I've come after Miss Delina's dress." "All right," Christy answered. "It's ready. Come in." She led the way Into the sewing room and switched on the electric light. As she cast a quick glance around she saw that the box was gone. "Why, somebody's been here before you and got it," she ex claimed. "Oh. no," replied the girl Quickly. "Miss Delina sent me herself, and I've come straight from there here." "I'll ask Mrs. Peel." Christy said. Her heart was going fast. She ran to the back of the house and found Mrs. Peel calmly beating up bread sponge In the kitchen. "Who did you give De lina's dress to?" she demanded. "I didn't give it to anybody. No body's been here," Mrs. Peel answer ed. "Why. what's the matter?" For Christy was turning a haggard white. "It's gone." Mrs. Peel laid a hand on her shoul der. "You go home," she said to the maid, "and tell Delina it wasn't quite ready. That'll give us time to inves tigate this." When the girl had gone she. turned to Christy. "Now, brace up and let's talk this over. Ain't you got an Idea, Christy." But Christy had none. After they looked the house over without avail they went to bed to sleep if they could, upon the mystery. It was near dawn before Christy fell asleep. She was awakened by Mrs. Peel standing over her. "Han Atwell's been here. She says Doris ran away last night vlth Harry Crane. They were married by the Jus tice before they went. Doris said so -In a note she left her aunt. She left one for you, too. Han Just gave It to me. Read it quick. J've a suspicion we're going to find out something about that dress." Christy sat up In bed and opened the note. "Don't tell Aunt Han," she read aloud slowly, "but I had to hav that dress to be married In. So I got In through the window after you went e.way and took it. I only had It on an hour, but I looked dandy in It. You ought to have seen old Justice Par sons bug his eyes I I put it back la the box Just as careful, and tomorrow morning Davy Coates is going to take it to Delina. Maybe you think I'm aw ful, but I did so want a real wedding dress. Maybe it's the last chance IT! ever have to wear one." An hour later Delina Ray 'phoned her thanks to Christy. "I'm sending you a check in the morning's mail," she ended. The mail brought something else bo sides the check to Christy letter from Rush McKnight. "Could yoa stand it here In the wheat country with me for a couple of years?" he asked. "You see I'm staking all on the chance that maybe now your mother is gone youll have me, after all. If you will. I'll come and get you In side of a month." The next dress Christy made was an other wedding gown. And she wora It herself." r
