Cecily, a fairly pretty little girl pvcn at eight years old, and soon to lie prettier, pulled at the tassel on the baby's slice and said, "Father won't understand. He hasn't under- otood anything for three days. It js the fever's fault. They are afraid Mother may have contracted it." J3ho ducked her chin lower and jilinked her long lashes up and (lown over her gray eyes. Grand opened the doors again find with bow and gesture bade Gladys Clapp a benevolent good- kfternoon. "Mind the third step," |ie called. The third step was broken right down In the center. • • • A WOMAN named Josephine Loehden was working for Grand and Rosalie at that time. When she had come a year ago to npply for the position of general fiousoworker In tho Fenwlck Mansion, sho bad said, "My name is Josephine Loehden. When 1 work I .work. When 1 sleep I sleep. I jlo more work with one hand than most women do with two hands. But I want my pry." When she quitted the Fonwlck Mansion, five months after the day Oladys had brought the children to live with their grandparents, she made much tho same speech. "When I vyork I work," she said. "When I sleep I Bleep. I am not a dog. For flvo months I have worked like fi dog. Now I will go and sleep for five months and I will not be rested. And I want my pay." A procession of houseworkers followed, after that: women who came through the front door and left through the back door rapidly and to march time. Quo with a deformed shoulder, whoso name was Christina Eugenia Passaflumo, stayed for more than a year before she. went away through tho front door and on a stretcher to the ambulance that took her to the charity hospital. • Three months later, Christina .Eugenia Passafiume's lawyer (if you please!) threatened suit against Jonathan Fenwlck for $180, six months' unpaid salary due to bis'Client. Grand sold one of the few remaining, lots, on which he had kept the taxes paid, and tho affair .was settled, promptly and quietly and out of court Ann knew nothing Of this, but the talk with Rosalie, precipitated at least by Miss Flume's insolence, marked a turning point lu Ann's life. She was 16 years old, by-this time, and In her freshman year at Reed College, where John Fenwlck had taught and was well remembered. "Darling," Rosalie began, "I've been thinking today—such jolly, merry little thoughts. . They have flown about me nil day long like sweet wee song birds. Blddie birds" (In a lower register)., "Do you know what they have been singing to me? Independence, over and over. Independence, and chumml- ness" (Ann shuddered slightly but Rosallo did not notice), "and sharing one another's'• burdens, and— um—all that sort of thing, you know." • • • A NN said, "Oh?" Rosalie sat and smiled with her tluy Cupid's- £\. bow mouth, embedded away up ahovo the first of her three chins, and nodded her bead with Its crown of yellow nalr (Grand aTwayi called it a crown, and eho had etef i» much ot It, and It was "touched up" merely), and said nothing. So Anft Was forced to say, "What do you mean?" Rosalie meant that this servant problem was torturing her by day and tormenting ber by night: the Ingratitude, the Inefficiency, the necessity ot having dally contact with—it was Rosalie's turn to shudder, and Ann noticed—"that sort of person." , So It seemed to Rosallo that with three girls In the bouse (Rosalie, Ann, and Cecily) all loir* Ingly eager to help one another, they should be able to manage, easily and happily, with a charwoman coming In once or twice a week. So charwomen came, though moro often they did not come, and three months went along, somehow, and It was Ann who sought Rosalie for the second talk. She began it forthrlghtly, "Rosalie, didn't Father leave any money at all?" Rosalie leaned back In ber chair and held out her white hands- little dimples, and littler diamonds, but big amethysts and one gold dower filigree with a seed 'pearl— "Como to Rosalie, darling—nestle here. 1 want to have a talk with you, a heart-to-heart talk with my little girl." It developed that there had been a small life Insurance, but that John ("He wasn't practical. Aren't you glad and happy, Ann dear, that your father was not a wholly practical man?") bad,, months before .be bad passed on, borrowed heavily against It to meet—well, very urgent obligations, one supposes.) No—beautiful memories, high Ideals and—um—things ot that sort were all that John had been able to leave behind him. All—and yet everything. "And us girls, ot course," Ann suggested. "To -arry out his visions, to fulfill his hopes and Ideals, to— um—" She paused. Ann had sighed, heavily. Rosalie began again: "Was there something, dear -^-some girlish adornment, some little pleasure that you bad set your heart on? Tell me. Tell mo all about It, and perhaps, If It is wise, Grand and 1 can manage it tor you." .. "No," Ann said. "Nothing. 1 had thought—hoped— No. I guess I'll have to quit school for this term, anyway." A ND that, It leaked out, was-.pre^ **• clsely what'Grand and Rosalie had been desiring but disliking.to mention. On Thursday afternoon Ann went to see Dr. Elm and asked him to lend ber $50, which was the tuition fee charged by the business college she had selected. He wrote the check, and a prescription for a tonic, and could not remember what It was all about when, four months later. Ann called at his office to pay him five dollars. "I have a position," she explained. 'But I get only S10 a week, and I have something to pay with this other five. I'll bring five again nest week." Dr. Elm detained her. He asked questions. . Ann answered them all. The Redfern Plumbing and Heating Company. She liked It pretty well. She was feeling pretty well. Yes, she hart gone to Reed College, but she had stopped for a number of reasons. Her sister, Cecily, was going to college. No, Cecily now was In the stxtn grade at grammar jphool. '""'' < "CHAPTER IA ~~~ T)Y tho time that Ana was earning •*•* $26 a w,eek and Cecily 916 i week, Grand had retired from th* ireal-estate business, Grand owned nothing now except ,the family house and the land tipoh which It stood. These, be stated, lie would sell at the same time that ;he sold his wife and his gratid- daughters. Ho made speeches , about it His son and his son's children had been born there. t(They hadn't, at all; but Grand'* ([memory at 74 was falling.) It had ,;stood through the years, In stress ,'and storm, an pver ready haven for him and his—that sort ot thing. 'Rosalie, getting wind, of the fact, iBorne way or other, that there were .such things as mortgages, had once /suggested during a trying'month that they borrow a mortgage—or i whatever one did with a mortgage j—on tho home place. Grand; sensing perhaps the Inalienable right of mortgages to melodrama, produced quantities of melodrama, and Rosalie wept some, through net promise never to mention such a 'thing again. There was no pressing need at • the time for a 'mortgage. Part of , the $41 a week had to be put aside I for what Ceelly called the "Very- Fancy Educational Fund 1 ' (Mother, sometimes for a Joke, had called the baby "Very-Fancy"; Grand and Rosalie had not approved), but the taxes were lower, since the new appraisal, and a slick shoemaker down the street put on half soles and even small patches so that they scarcely showed. Grand rarely borrower) more than a dollar or two at a time. It always bad to be I- change, small change, that be needed. He began bin ngw venture In a humble way. .At any rate, the cost of fitting up his workshop In one of the spare bedrooms was just under the amount Ann had planned to spend on her winter coat. Grand was not puttering. Grand was hard at work on his model "for airplane wings that should fold and unfold as a bird's wings fold and unfold. "There Is a fortune In It," he said; Implying, However, that be held a low opinion of persons wbo cared for fortunes. "Ah, yes—an unlimited fortune.'" • • • tK)R some pesky reason the *• plague-taken pulleys that were to manipulate the wings would not work, always, with the-required . degree ot exactitude. It did not 'matter greatly, because their...perversity gave Grand an opportunity to get to work In earnest on' bis collapsible fire'escape, and this carried straight on and naturally to something new In elevators—a space-saving device which no one, perhaps not even Grand, entirely .understood. Sectional doors came next; The principle was Involved, but the point was that two or three Inches of a door could be opened, while tho remainder of the door stood firmly closed. Failure of the doors was tragedy, for with them Grand wearied of things folding and collapsible, and In the spring of the year 1929 turned his attention to radio development The electric bills mounted high, and the trifles that Grand needed for his experiments were ruinously priced. It was in May, 1929—odd of Ann to remember the date—that Phil told her for the first time, flatly and with no softening diminutive, that she was a fool. "You," ho elaborated, "pretend to despise your grandparents' sentimentality. You are as sentimental as they are, every bit—both you CECILY and Cecily are." , Ann said, "Why, Phil Ecroyd, we are not! • And, anyway," Ann said, but moire weakly, "Cissy and I do have to remember that they have given us a'home all these years." Philip, a handsome, dlgnltled young lawyer Jby now—struggling might be added, except that It seems redundant—merely shrugged his shoulders and said, "Oh, yeah?" as it was being said in 1929. Ann argued, "But .what can 'we do when be asks for things?" ' "Do? Simply tell the old gentleman that you,cannot afford tjujse things. Refuse to buy any more of them. Get htm a stick to whittle. Put your foot down. Wouldn't that be more sensible?" Ann said, "Yes, dear," as It has been said by placatory women since the year one. Though, of crurse, she did not put her foot down. It was in July, 1929—odd of Cecily to remember the date, but It was she wbo went on the first errand—that the two elder Fenwick girls discovered pawn-shops and began to eat, according to .Cecily, Mother's and Father's wedding presents. They ate the little hand-carved chest that the professor of Romance languages had bougth in Genoa; they ate the clear ringing brass bowl that Mother's girl friend bad sent from Ceylon. They ate Grandma Taraasle's silver tea service (yes, one of the Tamasies, but she and Grandpa bad both died long before Ann was born), and quantities of flat, silver. Cut glass and hand-painted china proved inedible. For Thanksgiving they had Father's hand-made trout rod, and his set of. ivory chessmen went for Christmas. TTHREE days after Christmas •*• Grand took to bis bed with a bad , attack of quinsy and 'arose from ft early' in February pessimistic as to the future for radios and deeply Interested In the 'Improvement of kettles used to gen erate steam In sick-rooms. The wedding presents were pawned With no hope ot redemption. But gadget things for steam kettles-were Inexpensive, and the Very-Fancy Educational Fund, verely threatened,'- had not been touched. The relief was so great that this time, when Cecily said to Ann—or perhaps It was Ann who said it to Cecily this time—"Grand and Rosalie don't know.—they still think they are supporting the family," smiles could be exchanged about It •'••.•: . The remark was made in the upstairs hall, directly after a conversation with Grand in which he had said that it had occurred to him that bis Illness, the holidays, one thing and another, might have been rather a drain on the girls' pocket money. Rosalie had Intimated something of the sort. He intended, of course, to repay them. His granddaughters—Heaven bless and kedp them!—should not be out of pocket on'his account. So, If they would make an Itemized record .of their expenditures, ho would attend to it, and shortly. No—no! No quibbling now. Payment should be arranged, payment In full, and very soon. As the girls' heels clicked down the uncarpeted front stairs (the carpet bad been sold to a junk man for G5 cents three years ago) Ann said, "They must know. But they don't realize it, or face It, or something. Phil thinks we should make "What .__..,.., _ eily, "it woufdn't Shi tt ttlght #0«f wouldn't help us.** "Phil Cecily oracle bad i .being fights "Anvii said, "don't fall into quoting Phil all the you noticed tbkt')iti6 everlastingly qtiotri tbti. • are .never nev.er quoted th by same husbaiids?"
