"It's n shame," mourned and seold ed Miss Isabella Dunn to her slster, Mrs. Liseonib. "Ilero I bave arranged to pass a last day and night with the closest friend I bave in the world, Ef fio Worrell, who is golng to California, and my mald, - that worthless Nora, ran off and got married and has loft me in the lurch." ' "How roniantle," animatedly com niented Drusilla Liscomb, the young est of the faniily of four glrls. 'Oh, Aunty, dear, teli us ali nhout It!" "What nonsense," crled Miss Dunn. "Martha, do you bring up your cbil dren with such ridiculous notìons? No, Pi! not teli you that lot of sentimontal ruhhish. I'm too wrought up over the predicainent In which thls has placed me. I bave no one to take care of the house while I'm goue and I can't lock it up. There's the two gentlemen in the bn.Dk and Mrs. Morse, who Is an Invalìd, and a new lodger, a Mr. Al ling. Ouly yesterday he leased the front suite and I proniised to bave it in living sbnpe for bini by this- ève1 ning. Can't you help me out, Mar tha?" "Wby, the three older girla are away," explained Mrs. Liscomh. "But I'm bere," burst in Drusilla, "Oh, molher! aunty! I'd be more tban glnd to take the place of this dellght ful runaway girl and keep afTnirs In order until you come back." Drusilla was the youngest of the Liocorni) broodnnd ber aunt consldered thnt the frali, delicate slip of a girl was bardi- adapted to take charge of a great ten-room house over night. She clutcbed at the passing Straw, however. "If you wlll help me out, Drusilla," she sald, 'TU make you a present of that pretty silk gown of mine you bave aHvays coveted." "Oh, niotlier! let me go, please!" pleaded Drusilla. Rpluctantly Mrs. Liscomb ngreed to the arrangement. Drusilla made up a parrei of cap, house slippers and aprons and was soon on ber wny to the house of her splnster relative. Aunt Isabella was to take a traili two hours later. "Mrs. Morse takes entlre care of ber own apartment and the two lank lodgers are qulet, systematic old gen tlemen," explained Aunt Isabella. "AH you bave to do is to air Ibeir rooins. The star boarder, Air. Alllng, Is what worries me. I arrnnged that he should bave breakfast, and tea, and Nora has left the kltchen looking like a barn." "I'Il hrighten up ali that, Aunt),' pledged Drusilla. "You are a little jewel, dear. If my three other nleces were like you, learning to be useful instead of think Ing only of frlvolity and society, ami tllrting nnd looking for hushands, sis ter Martha would probably be more satiRfied." So Aunt Isabella went her way and Drusilla was placed In charge of ber home. She was Introduced to Mrs. Morse and looked about the homo. Her qulck bousekeeping eye speedily dlscerned that there was some hard work to do. The kiteben was indeed in confusion. Drusilla began at that point. Tlien she swept and dusted the o'ber rooms. Those apportloned to Mr. Alling were in entlre disorder. By noon she bad them looking like a pal are and then for two hours she work ed at getting supper ready for the star boarder. Her face was grimed, her bands snowy with flour as there was a ring at the door beli. She stood on the threshold nbashed as there confront ed ber a smiling, brisk mannered, good looking young man. "I ani Mr. Alling." he sald. "I think I can find my rooms. Miss Dunn show ed them to me yesterday. By the way, I am hungry as a bear, and lunch, or dinner, or supper would be very ac ceptable to me." Drusilla's fare was one vast blush, she discerned that she was mistaken for the mald, although the star board er bestowed a marked glanee of nd nilration upon her. He praised, ber cooking to the last niorsel as he carne down to the dining room. He seenied glad to converse with Drusilla nnd treated ber with a respect that sonie how ameliorated her false position. It was after the two b)nk lodgers bad nrrlved and had gone to their rooms that Drusilla took a fancy to look up the dress her aunt had prom Ised her. Then she was tempted to put it on and rearrange ber hair ami make berself naturally charmlng. The temptation carne to go down to the parlor nnd survey herself full length In Aunt Isaliella's old-fashloned glass. She tripped into the rooin and paused, nbashed. With applaudlug eyes she was ennfronted by Mr. Alling. "What a beautiful gown," he spoke, "and how lt becomes you !" "It ls not mine. It belongs to my Aunt Miss Dunn," flustered Drusilla. "Oh, you are her nìece, nnd not the mald? Shall I say Cinderella trans formed?" nnd he laughed, and Drusil la jolned In the merriment and Mrs. Morse, appearing, acted the pleaslng rhnperon for a very agreeable eve ning. . . The star boarder was rcvealed as a mnn of Independent means a little Inter on, and later on, too, as an ar dent lover and prospective husbnnd. "Some day put on the Cinderella garb and bave a picture taken to wear In my watcli case neai'est to my lieart," he pleaded.

The committee also has befor e it the resolution of Republican Lead.-r Lodge propcvng that Congress, by concurrent resolution, declare the war with Germany cnded. This will be fought vigorously by the ad min -i.stration. Early action on the F'rench treaty is not planned by the committee majority, but the Polirli treaty, the'ieaders sav, will be pre-;s-ed. Among other important inter national mutters pending or in p''i--pcct are the House bill to -epeul the Canadian reciprocity treaty and com mercial conventions and trade cx tcnsion ainuigcmcnts with the Al lies, the eiìemy counlries a:id other nations. On the legislative calendar are many measures alrcady jias.sed either by Senato or House.

Pernia ennt army reorganization policies, in corporating the moot question of universal training, soon are to be brought out by the Senate and House military corhmittees, while the com mittees must pass on a new building program and on bills incrcasing the navy's personnel and its pay. Prominent among the other meas ures to be taken up are those dealing with radicai aliens and anarchists and the high cost of living. Leaders also pian to give attention to means of averting industriai strikes by federai mediation or other methods. The Lane-Mondell bill embodying Secre tary Lane's pian of farms for soldiers and sailors also is up for passage and Congress will attempt revision of several standing laws and repeal of the espoinage and other war measures Numerous investigations also are planned.
