Then turned on his heel and went me in a hull', without cvcti bolh- ring to tell me good night. Neither did Nelson know the ew slcps. For a litlle while Anabelle refused to dance and stood anging on Nelson's arm and atchiiii; the rest of us. But Anabelle was only 22. After a litlle lilt of the music was too much _. her. When Dick Salmon in- isted that she- dance wilh him I ncl Nelson himself said gravely it j vould be a pily for her not to, she •ent off with Dick.

With me, dear child? What lave 1 done?" "You've spoiled me for boys. *ou make them seem so silly." But it was loo laic. Nelson told i^alher long afterward he first realized that night that he was too old for Annabclle. N a Saturday morning two weeks later Flora was missing from her bed, and nothing was heard from her for 2'1 hours. Then it came out that she had eloped with Bob Finncran and gone to New York on her honeymoon. Everyone said with obvious relish that the Tollivcrs, having failed in their gamble and used up most of their five thousand' dollars, would soon be down and out. .
