Early in the following year a small and not unattractive five-room collage on the other side of town came on the market, anrl Sam promptly rented it for twenty- five dollars a month. He announced to Amy that ho had paid the rent ot the collage for six •months and that he expected the Tollivers to move into it by February first. Flora cried and protested, said she had never needed her mother as she now needed her (her third baby \VDS then on the way), hut Sam uj this time was hardened lo Flora's (cars. OtSL'go received with enormous complacency the new:; thai Mrs. Tolliver and her two daughters were moving lo a collate on West Main Street. They had started living next lo a grocery store, Olsego said; il was fitting for them to g'o back to it or the equivalent. Flora, by hook or by crook, had got herself one of the town's handsomest mansions, and little did she appreciate it or her many blessings, if even half (he stories one heard were true. Otscgo had no spark of sympathy for the fuss Mrs. Tolliver made over Flora's having another baby. Why shouldn't she have a baby'.' Instead of upsetting Flora, Otsego thought Mrs. Tolliver would be much belter employed locking after Annabelle. Annabclle's long and undignified pursuit of Nclso- Forbes had gol nowhere. Nelson might have been attracted but unlike that Kelson was far too astulc and m.-nry a Tollivcr. IMvs. Tolliver would do \vell to point out to Amiiihclle that it would be wise io swallow her medicine and like it. Annabclle had had tvury chance, no opposition, no rivals.... Annabclle, to her surprise and everyone else's, did have strong opposition and a shrewd rival. * * * QNE clear, sunny Saturday morning toward the end ut January, Nelson telephoned early lo ask whether Father and I would drive over with him to IJinghiim- ton. There was snow tjn flip ground, but the roads were clear, and he promised a special lunch al the Arlington Hotel, l-'nihcr and were very pleased to accept. When Nelson came for us nhout 10 o'clock we saw that Amy Tolliver was on the front seal. 1 vould have thought nothing of H I it had been Annnbcllc instead of Amy or it Annabclle had been '.long. The drive over plenran! but .ineventful. Nelson ordered a beautiful lunch ami a buUli; of champagne. He wimtoil us to drink toast, he :;nid, a toast to the dearest, finest little woman in the world. Ha raised his glass. she t\my and blushing. "To the future Mrs. Nelson Forbes," Nelsun said. "Amy!" I cried. "You mean Hint you Mini Amy . , ." Nelson nodded and kissed Amy's hnnd. "Well, Til be ," Fcilher said lie expressed my sentiments. 1 w;is never so ['ompk-tely surprisr'cl so nearly bowled over in my life. "U'hcit about Annabelli'7" I nearly blurted out. Somehow 1 managed a few hailing congratul;itiotis. After I had ciriinl: Nelson's toast find a few more, il was easio:-. AI half-past two Nelson looked at once, I his watch and suKf.'c.slcd Hint Amy simpleton Sam, might like lo Ires-hen up a bit. He hoped ?;he hadn't fi.rgottcti a very thought too much of his dignity to important engagement. . . There was no one in Ihe ladies' "Amy, does Ann . . . docs your mother know'.'" I asked as soon as the door closed behind us. 'No one knows but you and your father," Amy said. "Not even Sam? Or flora?" Amy shook her head and cx- >lained: "We thought it would be Defter lo toll no one until after- ivard. We didn't want any . . . any excitement. We didn't want lo involve Sam or Flora." Shu lifted :ier head and faced mo defiantly. 'It wasn't my fault that Nelson wanted me ami not . . . not someone else." A MY said she had left home this morning al the usual time, merely telling her mother not to expect her until she saw her. father and 1 would have to break Ihe news that she was not coming home for a week or two. Father and I could drive the ear back, as Amy and Nelson were taking the laic afternoon train to New York. When we came out of the ladies' room, Nelson had yellow orchids for Amy and a lavender one for me. We drove to a Presbyterian parsonage, and Amy and Nelson were married. After it was all over and we ere driving home alone, Pjithes id we were none of us very smart not lo have realized that it was Amy that Nelson was after and not Annabelle. He said the marriage was entirely suitable. Amy was older than Annabelle and now at an age to be willing lo settle down and adap! herself (o an older man's slower pace. He believed they would be very happy. "Do you think Amy is in love with Nelson?" "I hope so. Al least she is extremely grateful, liy the way, the Tollivcrs won't be moving out ot our neighborhood. Nelson has -iu- thnyized me to see lo that. He means to buy the house they're in from Sam and give it to Amy as a wedding present." ''Uo you mean they're all going to live there together?" "Exactly. Nelson's very fond oE Mrs. Tolliver and Annabelle and lakes it as a mailer ot course that they will live with him and Amy. 1 ' (To lie Continued) Nathan Gordon Considers Governor's Race in 1948 LITTLE HOCK.
