These were Bottle's two greatest occupa tions; Bitting and doing nothing. 8h usually combined the two. Her pretty face rewired Itself Into a veritable interrogation mark, when he saw that the handwriting waa Bob Taylor's, "Why, I haven't heard from him for Are years," she Mclalmed. "not since he went to the Philippines after our quarrel; What can he have to sayt" Tearing open tbe envelope she read: "Manila, Mar th. "My Dear Bettle: "I am writing- to say that I am going ak to tha United State on jiurooaa to ( you. i anau arnva in .Brewster about the first of July. I hope that you will be glad to see me, for I can scarce ly wnlt until I can see you. "The silly misunderstanding we had Ims been wiped entirely out of my mind, and my greatest desire Is to return and plead In person for your forgiveness, and also to nsk you something more. "I ran see In my mind's eye your slim, willowy farm In Its sailor dress of blue. And I trust, dear Bettle, that you still have this Identical dress, and will wear It to welcome me back. I think It was the prettiest dress I ever saw. If you will don It for this occasion It will make our meeting so much easier, for I shall know at a glance that I am for given If you have It on. "Should there be any change In my plans I shall communicate with you at once. Do not make an effort to answer this letter for I shall be en route. "Tours sincerely, "Robert Taylor." After Bettle had read the letter twice she fell Into a reminiscent mood. "Dear old Bob," she sollloqulied, "how good It la to hear from you! And so you have something to say to me! I was ready to forgive and forget the next day, If you had only asked, for I loved you and still da What girl could help It? "Of course 'I shall wear the blue dress. Ill no, I can't either 1 haven't had it on sinoe he left! I began to take on flesh that same year. I weighed a hundred and ten when he saw me last and now well, I know those last scales must have been wrong, for they made It a hundred and forty-eight! "Goodness gracious, what shall 1 do? I cant begin to get It on and my slim, wlllw figure! That's what I get.for sitting around so much and taking no exercise. And I remember that he hated fat girls! I will wear that dress!" Immediately she constituted berseli a committee of ways and means. "Just five weeks in which to take off thirty-eight pounds!" she said. The next morning at breakfast Bet tie's father was full of trouble. "I thought when I built this house, that I was putting up one of the most substantial residences in the town," he complained; ' "but last night, whenever a car passed, I dis tinctly felt it tremble, sometimes foi aa long as two minute. And once It was shaken to its very foundations! I'm going to get th bandar to eotne over, as soon aa fee can, to make an examination. Even Bobby was disturbed. He cam running down stairs one mora lng a few days later, exclaiming: "Mom, this house Is " taunted. 1 know It Is, 'cause last night I heard tha awfullest groans and moans after I went to bed, an' the house Jest shook like it was tremblln' with ter ror! I was afraid to git up an' I've been awake all night!" One evening at tea, lira. Brown laid .down her knife and fork and looking, at her daughter, remarked: "Now Bettle, I want to know what the matter is wUfc you. Ton refuse preserves and cake, you wont tak sugar in your tea, and you don't eat enough to keep a bird alive. You're aotually getting thin and peaked! Why girl, you don't look like your self: you've fallen away so much that your clothes are ever so much too big for you.. Now what is Itr' "Oh nothing," answered Bettle. "Yes there is. There's something wrong with you," replied her mother. "You needn't try to conceal it any longer. Either you are sick or In love." "Well, if you are determined to pry into your daughter's private af fairs, mother dear. 111 have to confess that I am reducing my flesh by the rolling process.; Tou.. select a long floor space, you see, and roll back and forth twenty-five times without stopping. Then you kick up your heels " . "Settle Brown, are you erasyf "No, but I lMlleve being in love is pretty nearly as bad as boiug erasy." "Well, now I begin to see daylight," declared Mra. Brown. "Ho you are In love, are you? I thought as uiueh." "It's Bob Taylor!" And then the whoi iory came out . ., A:r r Bob had arrived du!r ' ea gaod iiUnuttlf to the willing Bottle, r -.;." u his derHftwe, the uung woantn In the cum tu in her roo-ri tsMv -''u her hatr for the 3'l.h ' rnt r?'ui ,i"T to hgrself the-wjori' i snouian t nave done It for any body in the worl.l but nob," nhe de clared; "but I don't Intend that Uo hall ever know that I waa so much In love with him that I bruised myself Mack and blue, mm my shoulders to my heels, beside entirely upsetting the family calm, that he might be pleased with me. And as for the dress. I don't think he noticed the difference between the old and the new one even If there were two slsea difference!" Did You Ever Spend a Winter In the South?
