I reached my basket through the

the house. r
Miss Summers came to my room r
that night as I was putting my hot-wa- s
ter bottle to bed, in a baby-blue silk v
wrapper with a band of fur around a
the low neck-Miss Summers, of
course, not the hot-water bottle.
"Well!" she said, sitting down on
r the foot of the bed and staring at me. h
"Well, young woman, for a person who I

"Do what?" I asked, with the covers t
up to my chin. h
"Do what, Miss Innocence!" she said f
mockingly. "You're the only red-haired t

one thing, though." She reached down a
into the pocket of her dressing-gown s

He had been playing with one of the M

Miss Cobb stopped at the news stand
on her way to the gymnasium. She
was a homely woman at any time, and
in her bloomers she looked like a
soup-bone. She padded over to the
counter in her gym shoes, and for

"May I speak to you, Minnie?" she

Miss Cobb was not offended. She went
at once to what had brought her, and
bent over the counter.

"Like a sister, Miss Cobb," I said.
"I'm not feeble yet."
"Well, you wouldn't want to see her

would break up with faces as long as
the moral law the moment they saw
my eye on them.
They were planning a mutiny, as
you may say, and I guess no sailors
on a pirate ship were more afraid of
the captain's fist than they were of
Mr. Pierce's disapproval. He'd been
smart enough to see that most of them,
having bullied other people all their
lives, liked the novelty of being bullied
themselves. And now they were get
ting a new thrill by having a revolt.
They were terribly worked up.
Miss Patty stayed after the others
had gone, sitting in front of the empty
fireplace in the same chair Mr. Pierce
usually took, and keeping her back to
me. When I'd finished folding the
steamer rugs and putting them away. I
went around and stood in front of her.
"Your eyes are red." I remarked.
"I've got a cold." She was very
"Your nose isn't red." I insisted.
"And. anyhow, you .say you never
have a cold."
"I wish you would let me alone, Min
nie." She turned her back to me. "I
dare say I may have a cold if I wish."
"Do you know what they are saying
here?" I demanded. "Do you know
that Miss Cobb has found out in some
way or other who Mr. von Inwald is?
And that the four o'clock gossip edi
tion says your father has given his
consent and that you can go and buy a
diadem or whatever you are going to
wear, right off?"
"Well," she said, in a choked voice.
with her back to me, "what of it?
Didn't you and Mr. Pierce both do
your best to bring it about?"
"Our what?" 1 couldn't believe my
"You made father well. He's so
p-pleasant he'll do anything-except
leave this awful place!"
"Well, of all the ungrateful peo
ple-" I began, and then Mr. Pierce
came in. He had a curious way of
stopping when he saw her, as if she
just took the wind out of his sails, so
to speak, and then of whipping off his
hat, if anything with sails can wear a
hat, and going up to her with his heart
in his eyes. He always went straight
to her and stopped suddenly about two
feet away, trying to think of some
thing ordinary to say. Because the
extraordinary thing he wanted to say
was always on the end of his tongue.
But this day he didn't light up when
he saw her. He went through all the
other motions, but his mouth was set
in a straight line, and when he came
close to her and looked down his eyes
were hard. It's been my experience of
men that the younger they are the
harder they take things and the more
uncompromising they are.
"I was looking for you." he said to
her. "The bishop has just told me.
There are no obstacles now."
"None," she said, looking up at him
with wretchedness in her eyes, if he
had only seen. "I am very happy."
"She was just saying," I said bitter
ly, "how grateful she was to both of
"I don't understand."
"It is not hard to understand," she
said, smiling. I wanted to slap her.
"Father was unreasonable because he
was ill. You have made him well. I
can never thank you enough."
But she rather overdid the joy part
of it, and he leaned over and looked in
"I think I'm stupid," he said. "I
know I'm unhappy. But isn't that what
I was to do-to make them well if I
"How could anybody know-" she
began angrily, and then stopped. "You
have done even more," she said
sweetly. "You've turned them into
cherubims and seraphims. Butter
would't melt in their mouths."
"My amiability must be the reason
you dislike me!" he suggested. They
had both forgotten me.

"GLORIOUS" RIOTS IN DUBLIN
London Newspaper Thus Describes
Popular Ebullitions in Ireland's
One of the jolliest Dublin riots of re
cent years celebrated the relief of
Ladysmith. Dublin was pro-Boer, but
Trinity college was on the side of the
government. From their stronghold
on College Green the Trinity "boys"
descended in their fury upon the town.
It was a glorious half hour. Dublin
was spoiling for a fight. But the ar

There was a Dublin riot which
broke out on the mere rumor of a
scheme for the union of Ireland with
England. The mob on December 2,
1759. descended upon the houses of
parliament and testified to their scorn
of politicians by seating upon the
throne a decrepit old woman, in whose
mouth they placed a pipe and invited
her to smoke. In the house of com
mons they proposed to make a bonfre
of the journals, but were diverted by a
more enticing proposal to hang Rigby,
the newly appointed master of the
rolls. Off the grim revolutlomar·s sal

"Do I dislike you?" she asked, ras

thought about it, but I'm sure I don't"
She didn't look at him, she looked at
me. She knew I knew she lied.
His smile faded.
"Well," he said, "speaking of dislik
ing amiability, you don't hate your
self. I'm sure."
"You are wrong." she retorted. "I
loathe myself." And she walked to
"Why do it at all?" he asked in a
low tone. "You don't love him-and
can't. And if it isn't love-" He re
membered me suddenly and stopped.
"Please sego on." she said sweetly
from the window. "Do not mind Min
nie. She is my conscience anyhow.
"I Stood in Front of Her."
She is always scolding me; you might
both scold in chorus."
"I wouldn't presume to scold."
"Then give me a little advice and
look superior and righteous. I'm ac
customed to that also."
"As long as you are in this mood, I
can't give you anything but a very
good day," he said angrily, and went
toward the door. But when he had al
most reached it he turned.
"I will say this," he said, "you hav9
known for three days that Mr. Theo
butn was going to have a supper to
night, and you didn't let us know. You
must have known his purpose."
I guess I was as surprised as she
was. I'd never suspected she knew.
She looked at him over her shoul

food. I'm kept here against my will.
Why shouldn't I have one respect

stewed fruits and whole-wheat breads!
"I'm sorry. Thoburn's idea. of course,
is to make the guests discontented, so
they will leave."
"Oh!" she said. She hadn't thought
of that, and she flushed. "At least,"
she said. "you must give me credit for

Where Apostles Fished.
The abundance of fish in the Sea
of Galilee continues to this day to be
the wonder of travelers. For the
most part the fishing done by the
Syrians involves the use of nets,
probably identical in construction
with those of the Apostles, and the
best evidence that the fishing through
out all these centuries has been ac
compUshed by these nets is to be
found in the ease with which the
greater part of the fish may be de
ceived with the aid of any bait, nat
ural or artificial. The pellucid water
of this lake, with its everchanging
refections. is in striking contrast with
the muddy depths of the River Jore
dsn. The silt in that stream, how
ever, does not, seem to inconvenience
the fish, which are extraordinarily
plentiful, even in the lower reaches
befbre it falls into that deathly lake
which the Arabs call the Sea of Lot.
