Miss Phoebe's
A Search For Quiet and How
It Ended.
N N..N*****
(n the morning of the 3d of July
Miss I aSrymple sat down to brenkfast
with an expectant glance at her elder
17 bousekeeper.
"Did those boys arrive last night,
flannnh Brown slammed a plate of
toast on the table with unn'customed
vigor. "Arrive?" she snorted indlig
gantly. "Wait a minute and I guess
you'll find out!"
Miss Dalrymple did not have to wait
alsty seconds. Hannah's words were
followed by a deafening explosion, ac
compnnish' by n series of shrill cries
and triumphant shouts.
"It hi seen ) o (uiet I hoped they
would not comne this fourth, although

Phoete did not object to Leander
Scett in the least. In the beginninl
abs had liked him very well fora neigh
bar, but the frst Fourth of July had
been followed by a coldness on Mist
Shirymple's part that Mr. Scott wae
gioek to notice.
Phoebe pushed beck her chair and
went to look at the cracked window
pane. It was shattered into a very
strangt clipe. rather round or-well
eanneh was standing under the win
dow now. and her voice arose in amie
ble 'a.verse with the objectionable
"1 d.v'are. Mr. Scott! It's cracked

Lwneler Scott looked up at the win

It. As for the noise. I will take care
th~ the boys do not disturb her."
r crased the lawn and vaulted thi
%o ee into his own garden, and Phoebe
turned to face Bannash coming into
the rose.
To the aecompaniment of Hannah's
grambllng Phoebe made preparations
to ran away from the noisy holiday.
I safl stun cotton wool in my eare
and set In the north room with all the
doors shot so long as you won't be

plalaed Hannah as she tucked the dusa

was about to drive away.
"Very well. Hannah. Make yourself
es comfortable as yeo can. I wish I
could take you along, too, but I don't
want to leave the house alone. you
know." apologized Phoebe.

When great-nivel Phoebe lantrym.ple
drove tip to the door in the hit suln

meet her with outstretched hands andi
exclfmations of delight.

The next morning was different from
any other Fourth of .JIuly she had ever
spent. The de(d stilliess of the vnli
ley seemed to close In and shut her
nway from it noisy world outside And
yet, such in the perverslty of hommni
nature, Phoeh' missed ,ioniething. Aft
er brentikfnst she took n .ook niid watt
tiered away to n green mendow where
there was4 Ii huge rock overshildowed
by Ii drooping elm. Here Phoche perch
e'd and reid industriously. feebly tri
Otnphnut in that she had outwitted the
nerve harassing glorious Fourth of
T'lae sun rose hIgher, and the birds
singing in the thickets hushed their
notes In the sleepy noon. There was
the drowsy hu:n of bees and the long
ch'ir of countless hisects in the gr»ss
eM. A brook rippled inusuinlly aiross
the meadow, and over all was n deli
clotts repose. It Is not surprising that
Phocie, too. slumbered.
A crashing explosion broke the le stIll
ness and wa's cihocil iiwi' from thu
hills in countless reverberntions.
Phoebe DItarymple :iwoke to the he
wildered renizantion that something
dreadful had happened--nn 4icrthilun1k4
or an event equally terrible. Site was
quite stunned by the noise and sitt
leaning against the tree very quietly.
Then n familiar snell asstiled her non
triss, and she thouilht she heard the
iiound of voices- boys' ioh'le raised it
gleeful chorus.
Somebody-usome boys were celebrat
ing the Fourth of July In Taylor's val
ley. She was too much surprised even
to turn around and discover the In
trudeth. She Nat very stiffly, with her
back to the sun flooded meadow, trying
to stem her rising indignation at the
unhappy fate that seemed to pursue
her desire for quietude.
"Here's a good place, Billy-right
on this rock! Now touch her off. Un
cle Lee Hurray?" shrilled the famil
iar voice of little Jack Scott.
With a thrill of terror Phoebe arose
to her feet and appeared around the
corner of the big tree trunk. On the
rock at her feet sputtered a big cannon
cracker, and backing away from its
dangerous proximity was' Leander
Scott himself
He took In the situation at a glance
Phoebe's book. her white face and the
brown linen dress, so like the trunk of
the elm tree that her presence bad
been quits unsuspected.
Instantly be leaped back to the rock
and grasped the sputtering explosive
In his hand. Under the Impetus of his
strong arm It went hissing through the
air, and before It reached the brook
toward which he aimed It it burst
with a detonation that again shook the
hills and drove the sleepy birds from
covert to thicker shelter.
Phoebe Dalrymple sat down on the
rock and cried from sheer relief. Le
ander Scott looked at her with grow
ing discomfort in his mind. It seemed
to be his lot to pursue this gontle little
lady with an avalanche of noise Who
would have suspected that she had
sought retreat here of all piners! lIe
had chosen it out of a dozen isohlted
spots because the Taylors were *daf
and he had Uncle Morgann's warmest
consent to make all the noise he want
ed to.
The eight of the little boys fussing
over the box of fireworks decided him.
With a pitying glance at Miss i'hoehe's
drooping form be dashed toward the
boys. It was the work of a moment
to gather the bombs and cannon crack
era, the box of powder and the toy
cannon Into a heap and the labor of
another instant to drop them all Into
the soaking water of, the deep little
brook and thus destroy their noise
making properties forever.
The horrified yells of the small neph
ews aroused Miss Dalrymple from her
apathy. They cried noisily above the
box now containing little else save
fireerackers and torpedoes: they re
proached their uncle for heartless per
Ody and would not give heed to his
promises of gorgeous fireworks for an
evening display that should be appro
priately patriotic. but .mite noiseless.
At last poor Leander Scott left them
and approached Miss Phoebe with
humble alowlogiesw on his lips. When
he reached her side Phoebe bad dried
her tears and smoothed her crinkled
brown hair into a semblance of order.
"I don't know what to say to you.
MiIes Dalrymple," said Leander Scott
helplessly. "You see. I realized that
