We were until he went to the powder room. Mrs. Joplin, the Morgana latest baby sitter, pufTed up the stairs, pecked coyly in at m« through the door he had througlulessly left open, and suid, "You alone, too, dearie?" "i\o, Mr. Roberls «'i]J be right back," I lold her unsociably. "I'll just keep yon company for a spell, 1 ' she said and sat dawn. "Sa.v now, dearie, do you tat?" she asked. "No." "Well now. you know, you're missing something. This here's going to be an edge lor a handkerchief. Ain't it pretty?" She brought over her work for me lo see and (eel. 1 flinched lor some unfor- lunabc when those hard kernels of tatting would scratch across her tender nose. "Yes, it's very pretty/ 1 I lied, and picked up my book again, "1 could teach you in no time," ehc said, "to la I good as me.

He took a look at Mrs. Joplin, n questioning look at me, picket! up his book mid sat down to read it. That's what lie thought. Mrs. Joptin asked him what he was reading. Uob pretended he was deiif. She asked again, louder. Rob jumped up as thoufth he were in a hurry and hustled back lo the bathroom. Mrs. Joplin again took up the thread of her story. *'. . .

While J was weighing Ihe advantages of moving against the disadvantages, Rob returned oiu:e again. He stood in the doorway and made signs that he wanted mi: to ooU Mrs, Joplin out of the room. He had nothing on mo; I wanted liin to ootz her. The biiby, that dear darling, dc- ightful, de-lovely little character did for us what we two big gillie.s hadn't been able lo do for ourselves.
