"Here'a bl order. FlrfC. ha must hara bla firat and supper dances with Mlaa Wartte. That' aettied. Now. lit tle one." aha Inquired, turning to the youngest member of the committee. "I know you are earing altogether too many dancea for that doting cherub of youra. and you know it len t con sidered dlg-ntflad to give too many dancea to one's own man.

I simply can't'" Kate, nothing daunted, continued her pleas But the next member had her exruae, too. "Kate. you'Te mad me exchange dancea with ao many weird people! I don't mind aeklng Tom to sit tt out with Mlas Walte. hut I do draw the line at having to dance with ber young charge. But here goea put me down for the ninth."

Now, enough of th dear boy for today, and tomor row I at all endeavor to beg. borrow, blib or (teal a few more dance from Th day of the ball cama all too Boon. A thousand and on unexpected details cropped up at the last minute, and Kata worked from early In the morclng till lata In the afternoon, giving the last necessary directions to florists and caterers, maids and musi cians Interviewing reporters and cheerfully answering countless Ques tions put by excited classmates and solicitous Instructors. The Juniors' escorts were arriving receiving with the patronesses and the committee, she showed no signs cf the hard day' work she bad ac compllshed. "Isn't Kate the prettiest thing to night?" one of the committee was whispering to a Junior near her. "Isn't she! Other clasBe.9 have had more striking chairmen, perhaps, but Kate Is just about the most refresh ing sight I ever mw. But Isn't It funny ahe didn't ask someone beside iiSWil-P 1 1 I , -.1!

But Kate because ahe bad osUy aaked ber cou sin, and be was pra?t!caily engaged worked on undisturbed. But -that night, when she stoo4 ! the brji:iaii Mxtaj jnaasLyau that cousin of hers. Fhe s such an attractive girl, and this cf all times The member of the committee smiled knowingly. "O. she expected to. you know, but there was a serious misunderstanding- quite an affair, I b6'le Please don't tell uad i ll tn Just then the strains ut the open ing two-step sounded above the din of the many voices. Kate's moment of triumph had come, and with all eyes centered upon her, she and her cousin stepped out upon the glistening door to open the dance. "Say. Kate," said her cousin as soon as the anxiety of the first two step was over and the floor was crowded with the other dancers. "It's a confounded shame to wabte your loveliness all on me tonight. That get-up suits you to a T. Honest, Kitty, why didn't you let one of the boys com on for this? I fully expected you'd have that young chap you met in Denver laet . summer. I'd have sworn you liked him." Kate tried to conceal ber uneasi ness. She felt the deep red mount In her pink cheeks, and a little choke of disappointment quivered in her throat. "Why, my dear, cousin, how dare you suggest a substitute. I fee! so safe and comfortable with ycu no matter what happens nor how badly the dance goes." "Yea, Kate, but you're not answer ing my question about Boughton. He's such a tip-top fellow, I hate to see you cut him uhort ao soon." Kate buried her face on her arm as she danced. She was tired and the strain had taken away her usual aelf control. Suddenly, seelns; her confusion, Watson changed the subject. "Well, It's going tip-top, little cousin. Every thing's perfection." "Yes, it's all right, excepting that one of your patroneesan hasn't ap peared. Psychology professor, rather odd, but mighty good to ub girls. And the worst of it all in that she Is bring ing a protege of hers of whom I have full charge. I wonder what baa be come of her!" It was not until the sixth dance ttit she thought again of Miss Walte and her escort. She had excused her self from her last partner and was making her way with her cousin to the range of chairs where the patron esses were seated. "Now. your duty." she was ex plaining, "fs to absorb Mtsa Walte in psychological appreciations, while I coilar the young hopeful and " atppasd. wjldenly bie &a w a few feet off the familiar figure of Ed ward Iiouiihton. A feeling of wear! neus selsea her as she put her hand on her couhIu'b arm. "How did he dare!" she gapped. "Good evening. Katharine," he -vai Baying quite naturally. "Hello. Wat aon. glad to see you here. Ourani e, I believe, Kate." "No, Indeed." Kate aaaurei hlrn. with her hand atHl on ber cousin ' arm. "I don't in the le.ua t underutaml but my dan:es are all takuu, any- way." She had not heard her cousin's hearty greeting of hla old friend noi caught the look that pasfced between the two men. "I wonder where Mies Walte can be," she went on nervously. "Why, Mies Walte couldn't pos sibly get over. Kate. You see, I brought my rnother on with m anl she and Mian Waite are surh oil friend and had such a lot to tall: about that fche kniw you'd forglvi her for f.t;ivin at home." Kate daz'-d. "Hut where Is her escort?" fell- K.'iBjjed. The two men laughed. "Kitty, tlila looks like a put-up Jo!, all right." Her cousin took ber trem bling little hhni In h'.s. "This, I be lieve, is the 'young hopeful' you were telling roe about, but I seem to be completely dlhed out of ray psychol ogical discount." And later when she found herself with Edward 'iioughton In a seclud ed corner of the impromptu conserva tory, fashioned under her own direc tion that very afternoon and real ized that a new dance was on, which the oweud to some one else, ahe had neither power nor desire to find her way back to the crowded hall room. In fact, it wan not until she had cut aeveral more dances and bad be come fully convinced of the fact that Edward Boughton waa really there . and that a great many other thlnga wertru beide that she Anally r -aprfcixre-d In the ball room. "O. Kaie." walled a member of the committee, rushing up to her. "I cut that dance witii Mrs. Waite's eacort. I forgot all aboi-t it." "Never mind, de.ar." Kate reae mred her. "Miss Walte and her frteti'l didn't come after ail, so no one nei-l be bothered about htm. .lust tell ti-s other sirls about. It, .will, 'ou o O
