A Dutchman once heard a sermon by a
preacher who did not believe' in immersion
for baptirm. In his discourse he attempt
ed to explain the preposition "into," as
serting that it meant simply going do'wh to
or near the "water, and being sprinkled. At
the close of this very labored discourse, the
preacher gave n opportunity for any pres
ent to express l heir thoughts on the sub
ject. The Dutchman accepted the. invita

house could determine which was
George's favorite, or what his ehnnco

she felt herself to be, and countrified
and old-fashion, ; npr W!lvSj f,,t

The hanging of the stoekins be

a Christmas Eve cerem.onv that had
never been omitted in the old man
sion since t he eldest, son, now a pros
perous man -of fifty had toddled across
the hearth for a rattle and cornncopia
of enndv on 'he first Christmas of
his life, but George and Adelaide
and Grace, the oldest of this third
sjeneration, were setting a little past
that kind of thing now; notbnt that,
grandpapa and grandmamma conde
scended to head the line.
Gorge laughed his sunny lansh
and glowed all over with delight.
The question meant that Grace had
remembered him in making her
Chris! mas purchases.
"I should," he said throwing back
his curly head in a lazy, boyish fash
ion of bis own, and half closing his
dancing blue eyes, " I should if I
thought Santa Claus would bring
" Never fear George, I think you
are a good boy," said Grace coquet
tish I y. " I gness it wont be a rod."
" Or a mitten," put in Adelaide,
and then blushed furiously; for she
wasyoung enough to make inconse
quent speeches, and not old enough
to know how to mend them.
" Would'nt be any oose of one
mitten," piped small Fraukie from
his high ch air, where he sat devour
ing the scrapings of a jelly-dish.
"Worse than useless," said
George, for some occnll reason in
great glee, and tossing the child
high above his head in a flying

pertinacity, as soon as he could get
." We'll see when I get it."
Ami off walkci iTcWoe, the child
on his shoulder, with an air that
said very plainly he was not afraid
of receiving such a present.
Adelaide escorted Grace around
the city for shopping purposes.
Here Adelaide was quite at home,
but Grace's slender purse and rural
notions soon found her quite out of
her depth. She had bought the
ooods for next year's dresses, all the
necessary things her mother had
cautioned her not to forget, a costlv
backgammon board for grandpa, a
toy vlocipede for I' ranku, a bonbon
box or two, and several yards of
wide blue ribbon to finish her book
marks with and she had only two
dollars left and no present for Cous
in George. Much to her consterna
tion, "just a bite " at a fashionable
restaurant finished this small sum.
ind Grace left the establishment a
'adder and wiser girl, with exactly
ninety-six ceirs in her pocket-book.
1 hey might have lunched on home

Tlie Christmas eve was a grand
gala time, and there was fun and
uproarious laughter that would have
produced headache and faul'-fiuding
any other day of 'he year, until the
hand of the tall clock pointed warn
ingly lo midnight, but through it all
Grace was troubled with an uneasy
sensation, for her unfulfilled prom
ise haunted her. Something had
come between George and his coun
try cousin. The old folks were sure
that Adelaide was George's favorite,
and Grace, though she carried her
self bravely, was very wretched.
It could not be that George would
resent her neglect of him. That
would be unlike him, indeed; but
certainly the coolness dated from
Christmas morning when he disem
boweled a monstrosity of a white
sock, and stopped short in the midst
of his hilarious fun and walked out
of the room with a face as red as a
From that moment gi and father's
delight over his backgammon board
and Frankie over iiis velocipede
were alike itidilTcrcul to her; so were
the milder praises bestowed upon
her Maltese cross in bead-work and
carved Ibistol board book-marks.
So were her own treasures, not tx
cepting the blue and gold Tennyson
of George's ow n bestowal.
Not a word diifhe have for her all
that miserable holidry time, but
whimpered and danced and walked
with Adelaide instead. Onlv when
they were parting he drew himself
up stitllv and said:
. "I forgot to thank you for your
little present, Grace a quite unnec
essary one, however."
"Sircastie!" thought Grace; but
she puzzled over the words all the
Lnnecessary! Could it be that
George had received something he
supposed to be from her? A forced
Grjtce suddenly remembered the
little conversation at the breakfast
table the day before Christmas, and
flow Adelaide blushed after her -suggest

that Fmnkie's red mitten had been
lost on Christmas Da v.
She saw it all. Who had profited
by her quarrel? Who had angled
for George's attentions? Who had
lieen so cold and distant as4fi6"ua8
she secured her triumph? '
Grace thouglit ihat she could have
forgotten all this treachery better If'
Adelaide had really liked George
but it was piain she did not. It was
mere vanity on her part, and this

how to end the quarrel how to're
store the friendship that had been
broken. Uul what was she to do in
her country home? George, think
ing she had insulted him, would not
come near her. And if she wrote to
him, what could she say? There
had been no promise between them,
and, if he chose to transfer his affec
tions to Adelaide, she had really no
right to interfere.
If she betrayed her knowledge of
what had h ippeued, he wouId"have
double reason to suspect her. If he
had really ceased to like hpr, she was
too proud to eem to wish him back.
Altogether it was a great dilemma
So the year passed, and Grace
grew cynical and iuoro.se. She was
sure of a hundred disagreeable
things sure that if shH
ess like Adelaide, George would not
nave taken her offense for granted
so readily sure that constancy was
thing of past romance sure that
female friendship had no existence.
