Whoroaa. If there was a church ligees, the dresses she bought lor the bride-to-be knew that it was she who must be pleased, not Christie. Once when Christie, weary of so much shopping, worried that so much money was being spent on her, said: "But surely, Aunt Nettle you re doing too much for me!" Aunt Nettie turned on her, her weddinfr, and lot of fuss, with Adela tha maid 01 nonor, it wouiu look like a long pre-arranged plan, and folks would lust think they had "Aunt Nettie would be too disappointed," Christie admitted, wiping her eyes and laughing a little, as she thought of the cloth of silver bridesmaid's dress that looked like something out of a fairy tale, and the 18 dozen St Joseph lilies that were to bo massed in the church, and the wedding cake and the bridesmaid's cake and the champagne that had been ordered. And so the vision of just herself and Donald saying "I do and going ?uietly away together without any uss, melted away, and they resigned themselves to the inevitable. The last minute Eve Latham, Donald's mother, wired that she had been delayed and might arrive only in time for the wedding. "That means it's just an armed truce. Which is a break for us," Donald said lightly, but with a touch of bitterness he couldn't quite conceal. "For that stepmother of yours is going to be about all you can handle on the day of days. My beloved mother can be oh so very nice, and so painfully nasty when she wants to, that I wish she were going to stay out of it altogether." "I just wish SOMEBODY would be a little glad!" the bride-to-be said wistfully. "Never mind. I'm glad, darling!" The thought of that sustained her the whole nerve-wracking day of the wedding, and well she needed been mistaken in thinking; that it THE DAILY CLINTONIAN'S PLATFORM: 1.

"Just remember that you're not the bride, dear," Isabelle drawled acidly. "If worst comes to worst you can wear that new pink net or whatever it is, and no one will be the wiser." And Adele who had looked happy and excited, wilted like a pricked balloon, so that Christie tried to be tactful and said: "Oh, no, Isabelle! I'm depending on the silver to carry out the color scheme!" "Oh, the color scheme?" Adele napped back. "That's what I am, am 17 Thanks!" But Isabelle just looked scornfully at them both, and went back to the book she was reading. Of the three, she was the hardest to get along with.

In the girl's frank envy and excitement she lost some of the dull apprehension that had hung over her all day, and when good-natured Rose brought up a tray and a complete little dinner for Christie and the girl from the beauty shop, her spirits began to soar.
