Mrs. Mitebell'a Elttlns room wa nt tho front of the Louse ou Hi second floor. It was much lar^e than Cella's room. Tlie rug o tlio floor was from a Persian loon and the furnllure was elaborate I a style much admired in tlie Ins decades of tlio 10th century. , fireplace with marble mantle an a large mirror above centered on wall. At the left was a door whin Cclia decided led Into Mrs. Mild ell's licdroom. With a swccato flourish th woman laid aside her pen. "Mow, ttieu." fche bald, in her sharp voice, "good morning, Ce- Ha. Come nearer and sit down." Though the white-haired woman scorned glasses. It was evident her eyesight was impaired, for she had a way of leaniug forward and nar- 'rowing her eyes whea speaking. "Good morning, grandmother," tlie girl answered primly. She arose, moving to a chair beside the large oak cltsk at which Mrs. Mitchell sat. "Sleep well?" the woman asked. "Oh, yes! I really didn't mean to stay in bed BO late. I felt dreadfully to have missed breakfast!" "Humph—it's no matter! Always have breakfast servad in my room, aud your father doesn't take any thing except coffee. Aline has orders to bring you breakfast at 9:30 each morning. That's a eooi! sensible hour. Makes servants restless to be having meal times changed around. She said it so sternly that Celia hastened to agree, that a tray al 9:30. each morning would bo en tlrely satisfactory. Mrs. Mitchell sat back In chair. "Xow that you're here," Bald to the girl, "what are going to do?" "Why, I—that Is—I—" Tlio eldar woman nodded cad with nu "Mold-you-so" ex- resslou. 'You don't know!" Bho uld, mphaslclng cadi word. "It's • real' responsibility to linv« • oung girl like you In tho house. )o you reallte Hut? 1 don't mind elllug you I hesitated when your athar first talked about bringing ou here. But you'ro a Mitchell, ud I hope 1 know my duty when ico It! Now, then, the. question s—wlitt arc you going to dot" Celta's eyes widened. "Why, you aeo 1 haven't made .ny plans—" "No? Well, never mind. I'll do he planning. In fact, I've, already ione It. Tell me somcthtiis about 'ourself. What did you do In lial- Iraore?" There-was something vigorous ngeil "Kscuso me." • • • •VOlin father probably lias to!4 •*• you I've given up going to :io country tbii summer on your ccount. I ECO now It was a wise Ian.

You'ro ft You'll have hci she you and wholesome ubout tlio woman's brusqucness, hut this quality was lost on Celta. "Well, I've never done much anything except go to school. I studied stenography." "A u p h —stenography!" Mrs Mitchell'* hands raised in horror "This \vns. 1 suppose, In a nublli school?" sh« asked. The girl nodded. "As bad as I thought," the olde woman sighed. "As bad as thought!" Mrs: Mitchell rested one arm o her desk and tapped her pern disconsolately. Then sho rase and paced back and forth across the room. After a moment site halted. In front of Cella and looked at the girl Intently.., "I really dob't know if it can b« done." sho aaid solemnly. "I'Von- i!er—" Her expression and manner seemed to say clearly that Cella was a disgrace. Under this frown- Ing displeasure tlio girl could al- t most feet herself shrinking smaller and' smaller. Sho would hate liked very much to know what as so dreadful. "16—anything Trong?" she asked. Instead of answering, Mrs Mitchell sat down at her desk. ".My opinion is that the thing's impossible," sho said flrialy. "Still I hope I know my duty." There was a pause and then she contln ued. "Your looks won't help you any. Oh! you're a pretty child Too pretty! People are likely to guess from the start that you're troin the wrong side of. the family.' Now It was Cclia's back which straightened. "I don't know what all thi means," she said, "but It you'r talking about my mother—!" The girl's cheeks were white. "Hoity-toity, child! None that! Who said anything aho« vour mother? I didn't, .Just tel" Ing you it's common to have liretty face. Aud it Is. None o tho hcst families have pretty faces None of them!" Celia wanted to laugh. Sho con trolled the impulse as she Eai demurely: o tnko your place In society. On- 1 can ceo now it's going lo bo a great task!" lioth of them were, silent; for n Imo. Then Cella ualit quetly. 'Father didn't say anything, about —society. What do you want uie to do?" 'I. Tho light ot gencraUhlp returned to the elderly womiii\'i eyes. "You muet do as I tell y&p." she said Imperiously. "In September we'll go abroad. Six months In tho south of Franco will do more for you than years la boarding Echool. After that tho futuro de pcnds upon how promptly you can learn.
