Tennessee, where she was to attend school the ensuing year Her heart leaped high as she be held the large red brick school house which looked very mag nificient to her. Shroudville was a town of about three thousand people who were of a very pro gressive nature. As Margaret walked down the street she ask ed of a gentleman, “Could you tell me where Mrs. Cavanan lives?” "Certainly" replied the gentleman. "Go two blocks i west and two south”. “I beg iyour pardon, sir, but which is south and which is wo3t”? asked Margaret. “A bright girl you are to be out if you don’t know the directions”, replied the man, ;and walked on leaving Margaret to And her way as best she could After several hours of inquiring and retracing steps Margar-t found the residence of Mrs i av anan. This was the lady for whom she was to work to pav for , her board, while she was uttend- I ing school. Mrs. Cavanan was ' an old lady and very much bound ! to her ways and ideas, however ! she seemed very glad to have ! Margaret with her. !j On Monday of the fol'owing ! week Margaret entered school, ! she liked her work very much. ! She met many girls hut the o’ es ! she knew best were the members I'of her own Junior class, among ! i thisi group was one girl whom I Margaret ado-ed, the banker's I daughter, Gean Phillips, however Gean paid very little attention to Margaret. Time parsed quickly and soon the week for examinations was at hand, everyone was in an <x cited state asking each other questions. Gean rushed madly up to Margaret and said "Oh! Marjorie, if I need some help will you give it to me”? Margaret felt the blood rush to her face and her eyes fell as she answered “If I am able to do it honestly 1 shall he glad to". "Oh. honest i ly, nothing, .von are a stingy old ' thing, just because you know, you won’t tell”. "I don’t like MARGARET'S WINTER AT SHROUDVILLE her a bit, do you”? said Gean t< ; one of the other Kiris. "No. indeed I don’t” replied the other i girl. Margaret wanted to help the girls but she could not for her mother had always taught her to be honest and honest she would still be. The papers were return ed and Margaret’s grades were announced as being the highest in most of her classes. ”1 don’t care if she did make better grades than I did”, said Gean. “neither do I”, replied one of the other girls; “She is a regular old book worm”. Margaret was standing where she could hear all that was being said, she went home that night with'a sad heart, Mrs. Cavanan asked her if she were ill; “No”, answered Mar garet, trying to keep back the tears which forced their way from her innocent brown eyes “Homesick, I suppose, well if you can’t do any better than this you had better go home and stay”, said the old lady. Margaret went to her room and spent the evening alone, she wished she were back in her poor country home with her mother and sister but it had been their desire for her tc have an education and she must still keep trying. The cold winter months came and with them the sports of the snow and ice. Margaret’s class was invited to a'skating party, as Margaret knew how to skate, she decided to go, "Well if there isn’t Margaret,” declared Gean, "and look how well she skates” “Oh Yes,’’said the boy. “I believe I’ll have the next round with her ” Away they went down the long passage that was frozen over, but alas, they went too far, the ice broke and poor Margaret was nearly drnwn ei! “Good enough for her,” said Gean, she thinks she is so smart ” Margaret was kept in several weeks as she received a few in juries from Ihe accident. Mrs Cavanan was very unpleasant and very few girls called to see h r, no one sent flowers. Mat-gar et wondered why, for had not she helped to send flowers toother members of the class wiien they were ill? At last the doctor said th"t she might go back to school, how glad she was. No one seem ed to care at school, she whh not met with many welcomes as she had hoped she would be However that morning in asaem bly the superintendentannounced that there would be a declama tory contest at the close of school any one who wished might enter Margaret listened very intently [going DOWN! | We herewith submit to you a few of ■ i our prices on our fresh line of new GROCERIES and MEATS «. 2 1-2 lb can apricots .20 Dry Salt pork, per lb .10 ;!

Several entered and anions them was Margaret’s much adored friend, Gean. The next four weeks were long hard ones for Margaret, she worked night a d day. The time was drawing near for the contest and Margaret longed for a new dress to wear but she knew that it would be impo sible. One day at school she overheard the other girls talking about their dresses and she thought of her own old gown. At last the day came for the con test, Margaret dressed in an old white lawn, simple as it was, she looked very pretty, even Mrs. Cavanan in spite of her outward deceit for Margaret, remarked, "You look very pretty tonight Margaret.” ‘‘Thank you,” said Margaret with a blush. As the line marched in that night, Margaret felt herself very conspicious as she led the others, after some time her name was called, she arose and began to speak in a clear voice. At once all noises ceased; perfect silence prevailed; the whole house seem ed filled with awe; when she fin ished, flowers were thrown her in abundance and the applause was the greatest that had been given. The other contestants gave their orations then the period of time that elapsed in waiting for the decision seemed hours to Margaret. When the winner was an nounced as Gean Phillips, every one seemed very much,Burpriserl.
