All political and re· I1gious creeds, and social strains c business and laborers meet anac shout for their favoi'ite teams. But it's all in Ite's game and I suppose it is all right.

"Yes-you-will," he jeered, hnt Nan was gone. Her pink gingham " dress was appropriantely faded, and she tucked her hair under a connotl gardten hat and steered her little car farnward. She found a convenient " parking place in a wooded spot, and " walked on in a cheery sense of ad- " venture. The pickers were variously assembled and the spreading vine yards made an inviting picture. The man called Cy was not pleas- " ing, as she had hoped to find him. " Nan twas really a bit disappointed; " perhaps in all this picturesqueness she had also hoped to find a divertingly picturesque personality. Cy was mat- " ter of fact to brusqueness. 9 "Get busy if you want the job," he answere d her tmid application, and pointed out the way. Nan approached the loaded vines hesitatingly, then smiled, and began " tak her task. The morning was extremely hot; to the end of the orderly row seemed a "long, long trail" indeed. But presently as she hummed and conscientiously plicked, a man came down the long trail with a basket. "Good day for picking," he pleasant ly remarked. Nan nodded. She was not acquaint ed with the etiquette of tihe vine yard, but as the young man inter- " spersed soft whistled tunes with 4A nal conversation, she fat-got ablout Vti quette anI answered him in good- * natured camaraderie. "My name is plain Bill ones," he told her; "easy to reiember. 'rm not - working here regularly-just filling in. And you- 't" Nan turned down the brim of the garden hat to hide her confusion. "I'm just filling in, too," she said. "Where are you going to eat your lunch?" Bill Jones askeil in the friend ly manner which was not In the least presumptuous. "I am going to eat mine back in a shady spot near the fence. Aunt Til iy fixed a generous packet of sand wiches for me, and doughnuts. You will have to have one of those. Aunt Tullie's doughnuts were made to be shared." "Thanks," said Nan; "I will." But the shtewd dark eyes read her subterfuge as site attempted to slip away. "You haven't brought lunch with you," accused Bill Jones, "Please stay and share mine." And some way or other the appeal ing "please" was impossible to re sist. Two soiled and weary pickers promptly made their way to a certain, shady piace near the fence, and comrn tnuned as they ate their meal. "I think," said Nan at last in a small voice, "that I'll just work an hour more, then go. It does make one's back ache, doesn't itT' Bill .Lones was at once sympathet Ic. "Stop rIght where you are, if you feel that wey," he advised. Nan went slowly and regretfully down the toad to a woodsy spot where Sshe had parked her car; it seemed a pity to have to run away from the only really happy day of one's visit, - j1st because convention made that sort of happiness forbidden. Whatever would the Wilkins and her own family - think of her enjoyment in such chancee Iacquaintanceshlp? She garzed ruefully at her stained gingham dress. "Thought I'd get in and run the car out for you," a volce remarked. Bill Jones, in neat customary attire, sat in the seat.I r"Step in, Miss Nail Tuxley," he per 3 suladed. "Please do not deny the friendship I have worked so hard to win. I was sitting around the curve of the Wilkins' veranda this morning when you and Bob were talking. I am the William Lauticelot Bob was Sanxiouts to have you meet. William I Jones Launcelot, forester by profes sion-cut out the Launcelot, it you like." Nan stmiled.
