Amelia thought she knew her moth partlcularly as regarded the depths of her deceit, hut she stared lu dumb amazement at Billy Batson's reception. No May morning ever smiled more en gagingly on him than Mrs. Flicks. She shook hands with fervor and asked in her suavest voice after the health of his family.

In a wink almost site was whirling forward beside the man she hated. Billy glared after them and set his teeth. He made no pretense of civil talk to the woman beside him.

Amelia and the minister -were Just across the way. Neither couple had had time to reach the Mathews haven. The parade was already moving when they came to town, so they had made what shift and haste they might. It was a piteous parade, something tawdry throughout, and In spots dusty and threadbare.

As she drew near Amelia's stand Brother Gillum said uneasily; "You won't mind if I leave you, the others are so near?
