At a single glance Dale SHverton
took In critically the presentment of
two ladles who had Just left the train
at the little station of Dolton,
j They were mother and daughter,
Dale decided at once. The former had
a genial matronly face, exhibiting en
tire contentment with life. The latter
was a lovely girl of eighteen and Dale
looked at her admiringly twice, and
; then hoped for some reasonable ex
i cuse for repeating the privljege. Dale
had his automobile at the platform,
having expected the arrival by train
of a favorite college friend. He had
I not come, and the -elderly lady made a
movement towards Dale as he started
to return to his car. Dale raised his
cap and awaited her pleasure.
"Pardon me," spoke the elder lady,
“but are there no regular conveyances
for the convenience of travelers?”
“There Is a motorbus for the morn
ing and evening trains,” explained
Dale, “but during the day its owner
drives a delivery truck for the local
stores. Is your destination in the
“Yes. \Ye were directed to a Miss
Annette Folsom. Do you know her?”
“She is a distant relative of mine,”
answered Dale wltli a smile, “and as
I am driving directly past her home it
, i-ill be a pleasure to take you there.”
“I am Mrs. Willard Bruce,” spoke
the lady after a brief hesitation, “and
with my daughter, Dorothy, expect to
make my permanent home in Dolton.
My city attorney has made arrange
ments for our temporary sfay with
Miss Folsom.”
“I understand,” bowed Dale, and
understood, Indeed. This then was
the lady concerning whom the gossips
of the village had been speculating for
weeks past. Mrs. Arthur Smith, so
cial lender and newly rich tondy to
style and fashion, had told how the
Bruce family, of wealth and high city
prestige, was to locate in the show
mansion of the town which had been
vacant for some time but, as Dale had
noticed, was now uuder complete
Mrs. Bruce accepted ihe proffer of
the young man with gracious thanks,
and Miss Dorothy found him interest
ing and obliging as to her casual in
quiries about the village. Dale de
livered his passengers and their be
longings at the home where his spin
ster half cousin took hoarders of the
better class when occasion required.
The next day he drove by the place,
but caught no sight of the ■winsome
faced girl who had considerably at
tracted him. Two afternoons later,
however, lie met Algie Smith, and con
sented to lie bored by that shallow
minded young fop because Algie talked
about the newcomers.
‘‘Ma says they are the people who
have taken the big house,” reported
Algie. “There’s a daughter, and they
are some people, she understands. Look
here. Silverton, she’s pretty, they say,
and rich. Can’t yon sort of bring me
up against her? You could make an
excuse to visit your aunt and I’ll go
with you—see?’
“I don’t,” answered Dale tartly, “for
1 wouldn’t think of intruding myself.”
Ail the same Date, having a real rea
son for seeing his aunt, drove up in
front of the Folsoui house the day
following. He heard joyous voices in
li • rear yard and walked around the
' house. There was his divinity of the
depot, the peerless Dm-othy, Mrs.
Bruce and his aunt. They were having
a jolly time. Upon the grass lay a
clothes basket filled to the brirn with
clothes. Portly Mrs. Bruce was trying
[ to lift it and panted at the task. Miss
Folsom tried the experiment and her
frail frame staggered under the load.
“Oh, yon poor, useless creatures!”
cried the sprightly Dorothy. “See—
I’ll carry It over to the Browns with
out any trouble,” but her progress in
sustaining the clumsy load caused
Dale to step forward.
“Can’t I be of any assistance?” he
Yes, he could, and was, and a min
ute later he and. Dorothy were one at
each handle of the basket, conveying It
across lots to a dilapidated old cot
tag* three blocks distant.
“You see,” explained Dorothy, “your
aunt told us of the destitution and
misery of a poor family. There are
four little children and the mother is
111. Mother and I brought their wash- .
Ing home and pitched In and laundered
it, and we have quite adopted the fam
ily, and—”
“And you are real angels of mec
cy!” enthused Dale sincerely, ,
Mrs. Smith had seen Mrs. Bruce and ,
Dorothy at the washtub. She was ,
also a witness to the co-operation of '
Dale In the delivery of-tlie basket. Im- 1
mediately her flat went forth that the
Bruces must be nobodles, and that ’
Dale had ought to protect his standing
with more d'gnity 1 She should not j
