Penny agreed, her tongue oosened by relief. "I «as only 12 •ears old when flora ilackctt made ler debul. but a 12-year-old has big ears anil keen eyes. It is true that Flora ivas beautiful and rich, but- well. there was somell-.ins queer ibout her. She was simply craiy to get married, and If ii man danced with her as many as threa times In an evening she literally nclzed upon him and tried to drag him to the altar. . . . .Her eagerness and her intenrlty repelled efery man who was In the least attracted to her, and 1 think sus was beginning to be frightened to death that she wouldn't get married at all. when Tracey came to Hamilton to \vork n her tether's business. "She. began -to rush him — there's no other word for It — and none ot he other girls minded a bit, because. without Flora, Tracey would have been the perfect male wall- ;lowor. They became engaged almost right away, but didn't get married for six months — I suppose old Mr. Ilackctt made Flora wait. All the girls were freely prophesying that even Tracey. flattered by her passion for him. as ho EO evidently was, would get lived of It, but he didn't, and there wero three marriages that June." "Three?" Dundee repeated, ratber absently, for h!a interest was waning. "Yes.

Penny answered. "Although I was 13 by then, and really too old for the role. I had tho fun at being flower girl for Lolg and Flora both." "Do you think Flora «3s rijally In 'Tracey rlld." Fenny answered ''Flora told us all good night In the living room, then rau upstairs to see If Betly was sllll asleep. . But remember we didn't loavo uuil midnight, aud Dr. Price say Sprague tvas killed between Din and 11 last night." "Dr. Price would be the flrat't grant a leeway of an hour, one wa or another."
