out right full with what they meant.
They seemed to have somo good rea

said quite a good deal about their fa

thought they oughtn't to eXpOse this

Florence looked at him trustfully
and said nothing. It seemed to her
that lhe suspected something; she was
not sure, but his conversation was a
little peculiar-though not in the least
sinister. Indeed, she was able to nmke
out that he had more the air of an ac
complice than of a detective. Never
theless she wvas convinced that far, far
the best cour'se for her to pursue, dur
ing the next fewv days, would be one
of steadfast reserve. And such a course
w~i congenial to her mood, which was
sdbdued, not to say apprehensive;
though she was sure that her recent
conduct, if viewed sympathetically,
wvould be found Christian. The trou

be viewed sympathetically. No one
would understand how carefully and
tactfully she had prepared the items
of the Oriole to lead suavely up to the
newsu of Aunt Julia's engagement and
break it to Noble Dill in a manner to
save his reason. Therefoee, on ac
count of this lack of comprehension,
really the only wise and good thing to
do was to claim nothing for herself,
and allow Herbert and Henry to re

publishing the Oriole. This involved

"Well, I wasn't intending to," Her

"You're . makin' a big mistake I"
Henry IRooter called after him, "You

And Herbert no more than half
opened his front (door before lie per

been exellent. So clearly H~erbert
perceived this, that lie impulsively de
cided not to open the door any far

and retire; and ho would have done
so, had not his mother reached forth
and detained him. She was, in fact,
just inside that door, in the hall with

elderly unmarried cousin, who wvere
