Ermlntrude said breathlessly over the telephone, "I've made the most marvelous, thrilling discovery that you could ever' possibly imagine! Mother and Daddy have gone for a ride, but I said I had to'study and rushed right In to phone to you. I'm so excited I can hardly talk. I'm lust nbrilutely shaking all over. I'm kind- of pale and trembling. Listen. I've found out who a Certain Somebody Is. Yes, honestly. , Every thing about him. And It la just too, perfectly, marvelously wonderful. - It IS really.. ; "Mother's cleaning woman dlchp't come today, so Mother went ahead and aired the mattresses and did every, silly thing like that, and'It pretty near brought 'on a nervous headache. So when Caddy came home and she was pounding the steak be said, 'No more of this. We'll jump In the car and go over town for dinner.' And he took-the plate right away from her, he said the steak would keep and—I am ( hurrying, but you know how I am. I have to tell things In my own way—and Mother said she wouldn't dress and put'on a corset'for any dinner on earth, and Daddy said, 'Just pnt on your coat over your house dress, you're as sweet; S3 a daisy and neat as a pin, and;we'll go,right up here to this neighborhood place, we can get something.' So we did. And we 'hadn't much inbre than taken our seV.ta at the Stable .fo^-- : there-"thanTWho should' r; '•.". ''iT^ .' — •*•,come walking In but Him! "I thought I'd die! Honest, darling, I tbougbt I'd just pass out. He had his hat a little one-sided, and he bad bis cane and everything, and I never saw him look more handsome. He gave me • one of thoso cool, penetrating glances of his, and I could see he recognized me right off—but, of course, he didn't let on or anything. He just pulled out his'chair and sat down facing me. Facing me! Feature that, Mary-Frances—facing me. He looks even more handsome sitting than he does standing. There seemed to be worlds of unspoken •questions in his eyes, too. I'll bet a thousand dollars that he thought, seeing us together every afternoon, that we were sisters, and be was wondering and kind of mutely asking me where you were. He loves you, Mary-Frances. The more 1 looked at him the more I was certain of his unspoken love for you. One of my strong psychic hunches "Dare/" said Mary-Frances, at this critical time —" came-to me. You know-how I get them—I am hurrying. •'• " 44 A ND then-when I was just posi- •**t-lively dying anyway with excitement and everything, you know, Daddy looked up and saw him, and lie said to Mother*, 'Trudie, .there's that young fellow who took the part of the brother in the show last night.' • . "I thought .I'd die. I just about passed out. It. was too perfectly drilling. 'Nactor and everything. But I never let on. I just opened my eyes in what you call my big- eyed, innocent way, you know, and 1 said, 'Do you know him, Daddy?' "Well,i of-course, Daddy didn't know him, "'but I kept on looking innocent, and I began to pump, and I pumped and pumped, and I found out everything, and Daddy and Mother never dreamed that I was interested or anything—I am hurry- Ing. "He's a member of the Stephen G. Sperry Players. You know, they are putting on.a one-act play two times every night right over here at the Hong Kong. The/ just started this week, so that's what he's been doing around this neighborhood and why we've never seen him before. He's not the leading man, or he wasn't in the show the folks saw (that's where they went when they sneaked off last night.while I was at your house), and the folks didn't like his acting so awfully much—but you know they just absolutely aren't judges of things like that at all. ~'Member, they didn't even like Chester Fairfleld in the New Western Stoclc Company last winter, nor anything. They don't care much for Ronald Colman, even, "//Doii-tfiinfe I'd- lack down nou> They're awfully, crazy that way—I am hurrying. 'I-tried to seo what he ordered, but I couldn't tell, but It looked like a steak, because he had such a hard time'cu&ing it. -He just went on eating, in a perfectly cool kind of masterful, dignified way, but ever' once in a while he'd lift those wonderful, brown eyes of his in a.kind of mute appeal like asking where was my beautiful sister. 41 'Natter while Daddy said for me to stop staring at that fellow, that I was' attracting his attention, but Mother said nonsense I was only a little.'girl. So then I «aid, with an- othet'of my big-eyed innocent looks, as you say, that I wondered .what his name was. Mother felt la her coat pocket on the back of the chair, and there was the program from last night; she'd-saved it for the 'Coming Attractions,' you know. She put it in the menu, so he wouldn't see we were talking about him, and now listen, darling. You'll hardly believe it. His first name is Earl. One of. your favorite names for men. And now listen. His last name Is 1 DeArmount. Capital D, e. Capital A, r, m, o, u, n, t. Earl DeArmount! Isn't that the most marvelous thrilling name? A 'de' and everything! I nearly died when I read it right there on the program. And Earl always being your favorite name, next to Christopher and Anthony and Hilary, for men. It's just simply more than coincidence. It's just like you'd known from childhood days that you were going to meet a man named Earl, and souls reaching out to souls and thought telepathy and everything. I guess that just about proves u mow than dfitthiat conld. "They just bad (tlt.fof dttten, and I saw him shako hla head, kind of borett arid wpsflor, that hd didn't want any. But he ate awfull*/ •tow- ly, and he hadn't finished when #« left, and I had to walk right pa*t him. I could of almost touched him. My h«att was beating to last It pretty nearly stifled me, and my knees shook and everything. But even for your sake, darling, 1 didn't dare glance at him as we passed. I'd pt.dled. I know I would, and Mother wag rl»ht behind me and everything. "But when Daddy was paying the check, up In front, 1 did kind of glance toward him. Mnry-Francei, he'd kind of turned around In hla chair, and be was looking right at me! I nearly passed dut And 1 can't explain It, but right then another one of my psychic hunch en came to me—you know how they do —and it was just »a If he'd wild, in so many words to me, 'It you girls are downtown tomorrow., after school I am going to come up and speak to you.' • . , "He'll do It, Mary-Frances. 1 know It with all my Innermost be* Ing. It makes me just kind of tremble alt over. Do you suppose we'll dare? The more I think about it, honest, the more I think we Just absolutely won't dare. I was thinking, Ifke Danty and Beatrice, It mlght^ust come to be one of those beautiful, passing dreams—" "Dare!, Well, Ermlntrude Hill, if you think I'd back down now, at this crucial, time,' after—" Mary- Frances stopped, caught her breath sharply. Deqp annoyance, coupling so suddenly with her intense' excitement, had all but betrayed her— "after we've promised .Miss Byerly that we'd take part and everything—" •Miss- Byerly • was their Sunday* school teacher.

Phil, snr& ly, would be here'now.before long. Phil was late again. She did not mind, because she had heard or read that the secret of ' t successful love, lay not in ignoring faults but , in 'recognizing them: and 'not minding them, -.'•;. Years ago/when Phil had alway» been early, she had not .minded that, and so, sensibly, theiVwa.s no reason for minding now'because'be was always late. Probably It wa» merely a habit and not a fault at all; or were habits and faults the, same? ' • She took .two damp'tea towels from the seat of a chair, and went to hang them on the rack above the stove. It was mean of .Mary-Frances to skip oft, as she had, before the tinware was washed. It had been sweet of Cecily to offer to help, though she should have known Ann would not allow.it when she had company, Cecily was In love. For nearly 10 minutes Ana bad forgotten It. Poor Cissy— Ann caught it back and tried to correct it She likes it, of course. I am In love, and I like it. Of course I like U. I must like being in love with Phil —who Is always late. She turned out the kitchen light and went through the big dining room into the front ball. Mary- Frances was coming quietly down the etalrs, and she tipped her chin to sauclness as she answered Ann'a question. .
