THE OKOLONA MESSENG-EB. The Old Homestead By ALDEN CHAPMAN (Copyrlflit, 1910. bj Wei ten Nnripiptr Union.) U J 1 1 . . . .. . i aoDi seem io piease ner," spoKe Martin Frey to bis old-time friend, Judge Bartlett. "Well, Mary Is not a demonstrative person," said the Judge. "Dou't get lot of nonsense Into your head, Mar tin. Tou have provided a beautiful borne, the children are healthy and - nappy what more ran you expect? But Martin Frey siched and shook his head, and although he did not pur sue the subject It remained In his mind. He had married Mary hack at their home town, Lelghton, twenty years since. Never had there been ft . more loyal and Industrious helpmeet . And now, only a month before he had couiruuicu oiuif wim me nurprisu ui her life. t ':. For years he had planned it the building of a model home as good as " any In the town. He hud cherished . the Idea, saving, scraping, for nearly a t decade. He had neer let Mnry even i surmise what he was at. When the beautiful house was all completed and newly furnished he had appeared In brand-new automobile and had piled in the delighted children, with the ' brisk, cheery hall: j "Come, Mary, I'm going to take a , drivel" ; - And then, as they reached the new i home he had so proudly acquired, he ; drew a key from his pocket, handed It to her and said, grandly waving his 1 hand toward the pretty house: , j "There's your new home, Mary, and ; no one ever deserved one as you do!" Mary was pleased, there was no doubt of that. She admiwed all the. i line points of the handsome residence i and her eyes brightened as they noted t the comfortable and even luxurious furnishings. I "You are a good man, Martin," she aald, and her voice quivered with emo tion, and then she kissed him, and his heart warmed toward her. For all that, as time went on, Mar tin noticed that Mary did not seem to exactly fit Into her new environment. They were able to keep a maid now, but Mary was wedded to her old housekeeping ways. She missed the old kitchen stove and the shiulng gas range troubled her. She missed wash ing the children every Saturday night In the old-fashioned wash tub. "It's beautiful, Martin," she would Bay, "tint I can't help thlnkins of th old hniiio hrtc': rt L'i,''ifn. Hon'' you l ua-tiiber t'ic- viev: f;-n: tin :' open pi;!::,! til'.'iv. .,nst fnr mi I j; ;i!d And "the cool weil water, urul the honeysuckle vine, and the little school house Just beyond our lot?" "T Hn. fnriaAfl " Mnrtin tvniil1 rnnlv ".and It's the sweetest picture In the world in my memory. Rut ways have changed, Mary. And the old place? Twenty-years why, I suppose I.oijrh " ton Is Just a bustling little city now. and you wouldn't recognize it, with all ,the old landmarks gone." Still Mary cherished her dream. U was not difficult to convince her that the children were given great advan tages under the new order of affairs, but the old home seemed to beckon her. It was a shrine In memory and devotion and she longed for a slht of It once more. How much, Martin never knew until Mary was under a spell of ltkness. He was spelling the nurse one evening and seated In the h:ilf darkened room where Mary lay, when he knew from her restlessness that she was fevered and Incoherent. He caught "some words that enchained at tention and Interest. In her delirium Mary fancied she was conversing with an old-time girl friend. " "I don't want Martin to know, dear," Mary was murmuring. "He is so good and kind to ine, but It has seemed to me for years that the greatest boon J could ask would be to visit the dear old home again. If it Is only to freshen my memory and help the long Ing I cannot repress, it would bo n blessing to me. I hope some time be fore I die Martin will visit Lelghton .and I will get my wish." "You poor, romantic, sentimental dear! That you shall!" whispered Martin to himself, and until the day far ahead when Mary regained her oK! strength the Idea never left his mind. The glad look In her eyes fully re paid his care and thought fulness, when he one day ttnnnunreil (lint he was going to take n trip to Lelsrhfoa In the automobile, children and nil. With eager, expectant eyes Mary leaned from the vehicle as the inn chine turned Into the street where she had passed her early childhood. Slow ly her face lost Its token of delight. There were-stores where the house Of her youth had been. The old-time green lawns were gone. The (pinlnt, well-remembered little schnnlhousp was occupied as a repair shop, the grand valley" view shut out by the smoke of great factories, the honey suckle vine was no more, and 'he house, always so neatly, painted and kept, seemed ready to ci llapse with the first strong wind and was given over to pr mill workers. Mary drew down her veil to hide her tear. "We hnd better go on," the said forlornly, nd was very quiet a!) the way , back to their starting point. That evening t.he was more kind and gentle than ever to the chil dren, nod she placed her arm about her husband's neck when they wor U::t?!n. dear," she said,- as she ;. .,! .!ni fondly, "I have learned a . -.. ii(mie Is where love Is; and, r .'.

"That's true, you always have," said Ftillle Brownie, And then they both hugged each other, as they ulways did, and rolled over In a slushy snow bank. "Of course," said Peter, "I mean thai we must have a party when I begin talking In this way." "1 thought so," said Billle Brownie. "I, thought we might have a fancy dress party," said Peter. "So let's send out the Invitations as soon as possible. We must have our party while we have this nice mild weather which is making the snow very slushy and soft and squashy and wet." "Ail right," said Biliie Brownie, "let's get our friends, the Breez Brothers, to send out the Invitations," "Come hither, Breeze Brothers," said Peter Gnome, and Peter Brownie called out: "We have messages foi you to deliver." So the Breeze Brothers took around the messages to the fairies and the elves and the rest of the brownies and gnomes, so that all of Peter's friends would come to the party. The messages told them to weai fancy costumes and to come that verj afternoon to Gnomeland at the edg of the woods. All the guests arrived on time. Th fairies wore lovely costumes of som The Fairy Queen Did a Beautifu Dace. fv..-j 0f vtnd- -fit sol'.' .--'Iky m::rerSi V 1 .e; t ci.an -r rs. First it was puiple, tiien blue, tliei lavender, and then piuk. And th fairy queen wore a silver costumt which dropped stars of silver as sin moved about. So that the whob ground was covered with silver star1 which shone up from the snow am looked very lovely. The brownies wore costumes madi of little crocus flowers of all colors And how much they did look like tin very early spring. The crocus flow ers came up one day when the snow had melted and then some more snow had fallen upon them. The gnomes wore cos! tunes math of evergreen branches, and the elver wore little circus suits (so they caller them) which were of pink and green One side of each suit was of pink an--the other side of green, so when the; turned one way they looked asthoug) they were wearing? pink costumes, am when they turned the other way the. looked as though they were wenrin? green suits. And some of the tim.

Old Mr. Giant wore a costume marif out of newspapers nnd on his dies In huji'e letters was written: "1'h Party in Gnomeland, Everybod.' Happy." And on his tall hat wer. these word-: "Weather Today Pot feet for the Slush -Party." They all walked through Petei Gnome's slush castle, which was ver, ha tdsoine, and which had been math out of the soft snow. At the end o the castle Witty Witch snt In a rourw i room and gave every guest a pre? Vat. And then as they all followed Wittj Witch, after all the presents had beet given, to a great courtyard with wall made of slush, they beheld the mosi beautiful of fountains. The water fell over a statue mad to look like the fnlry queen, and It the water danced many colored Httlr lights. First all the lights were greet and then they all changed to purple niid then to golden, and then to silver All the guests cried with Joy whet liiey saw it, and the fairy queen AW i beautiful dance as her thanks foi the compliment which Peter Gnome had paid her. And then they all danced while th ninny lights In the fountain played They were of one color at a time, but they changed so fast that it seemed as though- the fountain had many, man) different colors In It at the same time And they all cheered Peter Gnom for his beautiful party, his slush eas tie. the beautiful presents and hl fairyland fountain, for they had a!! had a marvelous party, full of nr prises. , V- Brightest MoonrJiine.
