Flavia’s Lullaby «h -- t By Dorothy Douglas 0 E - t (Copyright. 19U, by Associated Literary Press.) 1 "And what is Miss Ransom’s opin ^ ion on the subject?" Eric Hope turned deliberately and faced the girl who had remained si lent during the discussion. For a 4 second she met the cold blue eyes of his, and then said, not defiantly, but calmly and with a Just sense of hav- 1 lng reasoned her words: “Children are very wonderful—but 1 ll think they are by no means the only blessing in the world, nor do Ijcon elder them essential to the complete t happiness of a man and a woman 1 1 Flavia’s cool, undisturbed glance i rested for a moment on Eric Hope’s l face. He returned the look steadily, then replied with a short laugh: ] “It is rather unfair to Judge all ] happiness from your own unemotional j standpoint.” ;< A deep flush mounted Flavia’s face j For a second it seemed to the dinner ,| guests that an open battle was immi ’; nent. They waited Tor Flavia to speak. A low ripple of mockery preceded her answer. "How absurd of you tc suppose, Mr. Hope, that I would Judge that question from my own Btand point.” She laughed unrestrainedly and swept in the circle of gueBts with an affectionate smile. “Every one here knows that my voice Is my child, my love and my world; it gives pleas ure to my friends, infinite Joy to my self, and-" she paused and finished half seriously—"what child, no matter how wonderful, could do more?" ' A short silence followed her words Tom Nicholson’s voice broke It "Hear, hear!” he cried. "I think yooVe hit the nail pretty nearly on the bead, Flavia." "Tom!” Connie Nicholson flashed am Indignant glance at the father of Thomas, Jr. “My dearest Connie,” put In Nichol son, quickly, "1 referred only to Fla via’s particularly unique happiness. Why, that fragment of humanity 1n the clothes basket upstairs was the saving straw So our domestic-” "Tom?” Eric Hope laughed aloud. “You’ve pdt 'both feet in ft now,” he said. Suddenly a blank took overspread Tom NiclsBlBOti’s face. "That reminds me, Connie; who is going to stay v/ith OTh~-~ 'Strpped 00 ut for a mweath -Of Air. j Thomas, Jr,, tonight? SJurae aren’t be ’back until tomorrow ;antl il ’promised ^Drake's wed be over.” A Cash iof happiness lighted up ••Connie’s fate, then died away with a fbeawy *sigh. "I’ll have to cal! trp Edna and tell >her we—or-Either 1—earn * come," she said bravely. “And 'break up the wb«ie blooming crowd,” growi-ad her husband. “Can't you tie the clothes basket on the -back •of ’tsie carriage and take hisn aloisg?” "And ’hump say precious .boy osier ; ten miles of rocky road at 8 o’clock to the -morning! Besides, rtfs a bassi nette—not a clothes basket.” "This makes she seventh dance we’ve missed on account of that— nurse.” 'finished Ts>m, lamely. Flavia laughed. “Why don't you say baby whem It’s .on the tip of your tongue?” She dared not meet the blue eyes of Hope. Something told her that be was not appreciating the humor of the -situation. “Flarta, dear,* sighed Connie, “you are 60 biuort-” ‘‘Not blunt,” returned Flavia— “sensible. And 3 aim going to be even more sensible and offer to stay with the baby. I don’t care a thing about dancing, and besides,” she went on hurriedly as if desirous of hiding ber pleasure, “I bare a new boob of bal lads.” “But It is suchm a sacrifice;* put in Connie, hopefully. "Sacrifice ?" came the clear voice of Hope “We all beard Miss Ransom say that ber music constituted ber j world—In that case she Is merely hid ing ber desire to be rid of us.” There was a tinge of bitterness underlying bis words. “1 hope, Miss Ransom, j that your voice-child will never call J forth a sacrifice.” “A child of spirit can scarcely , do that.” Flavia flung ber retort at him ( half in mockery and half in pain; bis * words bad penetrated beneath the ! outer calm. . "You two cortainly love each oth- j er,” laughed Tom Nicholson. "We do." Eric Hope spoke while e lighted a cigar and held Flavia’g ^ yes through the smoke An hour later Flavia stood out on ie wide veranda and watched the thers depart. It was an exquisite loonlit night. She rather envied aem the ten-mile drive. “I hate to leave you all alone,” said onnie. “I am supremely happy,” whispered 'lavla, "and unafraid.” As they drove off down the lane of lms they heard the rich bel canto ones of Flavia singing an aria from Faust” “She certainly loves her music," iughed Nicholson. “It Is everything In the world to er,” chimed In Connie. “Is It?” mused Hope. Flavia remained at the piano until he clock struck 11. The old servant lad long since retired and Flavia tepped out for a breath of cool air •efore going upstairs. A persistent rain had begun to fall, riavla hoped it would stop before the >arty returned. She went up to the lursery and peeped at the sleeping :hild. For a long time she stood gas ng at him with unseeing eyes, then ihe turned away and slowly went to, ier room. There was a Btrange, brooding look n her eyes and when she had brald sd her hair In two long plaits she itole a quick glance at her reflection, rhen she covered her face with both hands to hide what she had seen | there. Her face grew hot and Bbe, stood for a long time before the open j window watching the storm break over the night. Then she slipped again to the side of the cradle and, making sure that the infant slept, crept into her own bed. Toward midnight, when the storm wan at Ita height hnrf the listhtninx Bashed vividly a man dripping and ■caked entered the house. He went stealthily up the stairs and slipped into one of the rooms of which the door was open. A terrible crash of'thunder rent the air. Flavia Jumped, up hastily, flung on a soft pink something and went swift ly to the nursery. She picked up the small bundle and carried him into the big lounge, purring tender nothings into his tiny ear. His crying ceased after a moment and the man in the open room emerged to follow the sound of FI avia’s voice. She was sitting in a low wicker chair, impervious to the storm, to anything save the 6maJl atom in her arms. The pink something had fall en away from her neck and she cud dled tbe baby close as she crooned her Mlaby to him. The man knew that he was listen ing he Flavia’s voice, but It was a Flavia of whom be had only dveamed. Small wonder the child siept. Her voice was soothing and so warm with Joce that it drew tbe man Into the room and down «on his knees beside her. '‘TDon't waken him,” tbe girl said. "Lift him carebllly Into bis basl nette.” He trembled «s he took tbe baby ftrmn her arms, 'but all be said was, "Tie that clothes basket wMfc tbe pink stuff bis baslaette?” "Yes,” Bald Flavia, “and when he ta safely there you may go down to tbe library. I will come down later and you may tell me how you came tirrougb this 'dreadful storm. I sup pose Connie and Tom will mot attempt 71 will tell you nothing ml the kind.” be said under ibis breath. Sewing Pennies. "Saving pennies has become quite am industry among a large number ol women in this city,” said the receiving teller in a national bank. “The same ones come in here regularly to cash their pennies for bills. Some of them have four or five hundred ccgjpers to exchange fer bank notes. In most of the cases *he women keep wooden or pasteboard bores as savings banks, and whenever they find a penny in tbetr pocketbooks it is transferred to the box. LLsV't;I V iLI ure uuuoc holds examine their change and give the coppers to their wives. They tell me it surprises them how the pennies soon creep to large proportions. With the bills chamged for the pennies the women have pin money and can buy a hat, a piece of lace and other ar ticles that appeal\to the feminine eye without getting onltheir knees to their husbands. “One woman who is a regular vis itor here always breaks a five cent piece for change, even\though she has plenty of pennies to ocmiplete a pur chase. It Is her rule to gather as many coppers as possible.,T >i _—- x Spread of Species.
