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
f-How do you like It. Doris?" Chris
ty asked, smiling.
"It's Just sweet. I wish It were
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
"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."
