"I'm glad. I holed you'd like it."

was going on to tell more-how he

and said, "Yes, yes, to be sure." And
he showed he wasn't interested, for

S TRICK FATAL TO MAGICIANS
e- Herrmann. famou. magician, who
io died in 1896. invented most of his
as stage deceptions. To him is credited
s. one of the most mystifying and at the
same time the most perilous of all
I tricks, that of catching upon a plate
't. bullets fired at the magician from dif
he ferent parts of the auditorium. To the
n- profession it was known as the "trlck
ng wlth the trail of blood." In attempting
K. Its performance on the stage of a
et ,Ladon theater, William E. Robinson,
- or, as he was better known, Chang

1 told her that Cousin Grace wasn't
really Futher's cousin at all, so it

Ilast year. So you se'e. really, I'lu here
only a little bit of a while, as it is
now, and it's no wonder I keep forget
ting I am Mary.
TWO WEEKS LATER
I understand it all now-everything:
why the house is different, and Fa
ther, and everythintg. And it Is Cousil
Grace, and it Is a love story.
Father is in love with her.
Now I guess I shall have sornething
for this book !
It seems funny now that I didn't
think of it at first. But I didn't-not
e until I heard Nellie and her beau talk
- ing about it. Nellie said she wasn't
t the only one in the house that was
r going to get married. And when he
e asked her what she meant, she said it
was Dr. Anderson and Mrs. Whitney.
I That anybody could see it that wasn't
I as blind as a bat.
e My, but wasn't I excited? I just
t guesss I was. And, of course, I saw
I, that I had been blind as a bat. But
dl began to open my eyes after that,
r and watch-not disagreeably, you
know, but just glad and interested,
LI and on account of the book.
o And I saw:
d That Father stayed In the house a
y lot more t ian he used to.
g That he smiled more.
t. That he actually asked Cousin Grace
Ir and me to play for him several times.
r, That he went with us to the Sunday
d school picnic. (1 never saw Father at
a picnic hefore, and I don't believe he
h ever saw himself at one.)
S That-oh, I don't know, but a whole
I- lot of little things that I can't remem
If ber; but they were all unnmistakable,
v. very unmistakable. Andti I wondered,
e when I saw It all. that I had been as
g blind as a bat before.
When I wrote Mother I told her
sall about it-the signs anti symptorts,
I mean. and how different andi thlawed
out Father was; and 1 asked if she
, didn't think It was so. too. But she
I- didn't answer that part. Shite didn't
Swrite much, anyway. It was an aw
e fully snippy letter; but she said
I she had a headache andi didln't feel
I at all well. So that was the rea
e son. probably, why she didn't say
, more-about Father's love affair, I
1'. mean. She only said she was glad,
. she was sure. if Father had found an
+. estimable woman to make a home for
e him. anti she hoped they'd he happy.
r i Then she went on talking about sone
o thing else. And she didn't write nucth
more, any'ay. about anylthing.
