I'T'HE bills came in an avalanche, !'•*• from dress shops, linen shops, | baby shops, shoe shops, specialty I shops, from milliners, Jrom clc- ' parlment stores. Sam told Father in confidence that he had allowed Flora a thousand dollars for her trousseau, hut she had spent over $3400. Sam was disappointed and bitterly hurt. He felt that Flora had taken reprehensible advantage of his good nature. •- -Flora's excuse was that a thousand dollars seemed such an cnor- mous sum that it hud never even ] occurred, to her that her hills 1 wwo5d add up to that amount. | Flora was frightened and cxtreme- 1 ly contrite. She assured Sam that j she had enough clothes both for ' herscH and Gloria to last years j and years. She suggested that Sam j put her on an allowance—n few i dollars lor pin money that she i didn't have to keep track of and I could spend as she pleased. Sam, j charmed at Flora's tractahility, i gave her an allowance ot a hun- i dred dollars a month. But Flora : "was to run up no charge accounts, i cxc apt' • for household npcess it ies. jlf she wanted extras Uiat-i-nri'inlo I real money, a fur coal, lor in- I stance, she was to come to him. ' Flora laughed and clapped her J hands and lold Sam he was the ' most, generous old dear in the j whole wide world. { So the first rift in Ihe lute was | healed and happily healed, al- j though it did leave scars, j But then Mrs. Tolliver's -bills i Tverc dumped on Sam, the bills iMrs. Tolliver had run up in the I past four or five months. They '.amounted to $1500. "IV/HEN they first arrived Sam sent tlicm all back, explaining briefly that they were nol his and that hu knew nolliinK aboul them, lie did nol mention them lo Flora. A week laler the storekeepers waited on Sam in a body. They explained that Mrs. Tolliver, a short while before the marriage, had assured (hem that Mr. Forbes would lake care of everything. In the presence ot her debtors Sain called Mrs. Tolliver on the phono. "Did you," he asked her, "tell the merchants of this town thai I hod aulliori/cd yon lo send the past or current bills of the Tolliver family to me?" "Oh, Sam, I'm so awfully sorry," Mrs. Tollivcr said hurriedly. "I meant to speak to yon about this. I am cxpcclinK money from Mr. Tolliver any tiny. I Ihouglil you could just put your name on the bills or sign a note or something, and it conld all be straightened out and nol cost you a penny." : I never sign notes or put my name on other people's bills," Sam snapped. "Oh ... I didn'l know. I understand so little about business. I'm sorry I bothered you with such a {rilling matter. Looking on you as a son . . . Please tell the merchants I shall pay the bills in full a very short time." Sam told the uneasy merchants o send him the bills, itemized in nil, and he would look them over. The men knew very well that Sam. was not'lcgally responsible 'or Mrs. Tollivcr's debls. Moreover, Sam was a valued cuslom They sent him the itemized bills lhal aflernoon—sweetbreads, lur- keys, Virginia hams, guinea hens, fillcls of beet, oul-of-scason fruits, boltlcs o£ porl and sweet wine, hothouse flowers, 20 tons of nn- thracilc coal. Sam could hardly believe his eyes. ^ , CAM went straight lo the Tolli- vcrs'. Mrs. Tolliver and Annabelle were in the library, Anna- belle'wearing n heavy swcater,"Y Mrs. Tolliver wrapped in a shawl, j; There was no fire on the hearth,'' and the house was cold. Tlic clam- ' my house, the .shivering women, only added lo Sam's already considerable rage. There was plcnly of coal in the cellar, as be well knew. Mrs. Tolliver came lo Sam and kissed bis check. She said in a clicked voice lhal she wanted him lo know she would always be his friend; she looked on him as a son, ami under no circumstances would she quarrel with him, no mailer how deeply be burl her. lie laid Ihe fat pile of bills on (he table. "I want you lo look Ihcse over and let me know whether or not they are correct. It seems incredible that four women could have eaten the amount of fond you are charged for. When you have checked the accounts, you can let me know." lie slarled for the door. <j . .* "Just a minute," Aunabcllc commanded. She picked up Ihe bills and skimmed Ihcm Ihrough hastily. "They seem to be in order," she said coolly, "but since you insist that we check every loat of bread and peck of potatoes, we shall <lo so. You seem lo for- gel, Mr. Samuel Forbes the husband, lhat when you were slill the lover you lold my mother, indeed urged her, to see that Flora had every comforl." •*&• -. Sam said: "I wanted Flora to have everything necessary, everything in reason. I told your mother so, expecting her to cnme to me if she needed money. I did nol, however, authori/c her to run uy hills out ot all reason and charge • them lo. me, as she and you very well knew," .---^fiW "We knew nothing of Ihe kind. We had no money, as you must have known, and you had authorized my mother to see that Flora was properly led and cared for. We took you at your word. Tint perhaps you expected Flora to be fed and us lo starve. Perhaps • . •" "I woidd as soon argue with a basketful of eels as any member of Ibis family," Sam interrupted and took himself home in a towering rage.
