THE OKOLONA MESSENG-EB.
The Old
Homestead
By ALDEN CHAPMAN
(Copyrlflit, 1910. bj Wei ten Nnripiptr Union.)

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

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

PETER GNOME'S PARTY.
Tve always loved the snow and
the slush which we get at this tlm
of the year," said Peter Gnome.
"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

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

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;
