XXIX \ LI, this while I had not seen • Annahelle except at a distance, One hoi July morning when Flora Clime, running up oui- steps, she was obviously bursting with important hews. It was Annabelle, she got out. Annabelle was going to be married that very night, lo a man none of them had ever seen. Annabelle herself had never laid j eyes on him till yesterday. He was a widower with Jour children, a graduate • o£ Harvard. Annabelle claimed he w-js %ciy well off. It had all been auanged a month or ' six weeks ago, but Annabello *H,ne\er slid i single word about •*•"! him until this morning _, ! _"But I Bought jou siid she met ! hirrtfjust yesterday," I exclaimed. ' * -"I did She did But she and 11 this Frank ha\c been corresuoiul- ,» ing for n long time Some travel-"—* my man told Sister -ibout Frank "' nn3 JJlat he \\i& ternbly lonely, buj^ terribly shj, and (he children running wild and needing a mother * an^lookmg after And then he -went back and told Frank he had met just the girl for him. He even __.had., a snapshot, of Sister. And then B'rank sent Sister a little note, and Sister answered, and Frank v sgntjback his picture and a picture of his house—it's a very nice house ; —and his children, and they went : on''writing, and finally '.hey arranged for Frank lo come on ant! see Sister and if they Iil;ed each ; other to get married immediately. ; And today is the day. He's in Bing- hamtpn at the moment on business. Imagine thinking^ of business on : his wedding day! lie's coming here " at four o'clock." "What does he look like?" I finally got in. "Well, his picture—it's in a family group—is sort of blurred. He's ,13)1 and has a lot of hair, and the • 'children are darlings, all boys. The \ -youngest • •-, thirteen. .Sister will do with" four ii'vcVy boys? When I asked her, she just sort of smiled. She has nil her trousseau, bought on Ihc sly; so she must have made up her miiul to marry him long before she saw him. Amy and Mother insisted the wedding should be nl Ihelr iiousc, at Sister's own home, but Sisler said no, Sam was Ihc older brother-in-law. anyway she wanted Sam lo give her away. You :,nd your father are the only people invited to the wedding except ttie immediate family. Be at my house at a quarter to eight sharp." « * * T ASKED if I could help in any way. I - could in every way. There were flowers to be picked and arranged, food lo be ordered. Snn had yet to be told the news and persuaded to give the bride "Nelson olight ( that," I said. "Considering that' Annnbollo and Sam fight like cats mid dogs, you would think that Annabelle would prefer Nelson, if she has lo given oway. Or your mother. Your mother gave you away, I remember." , "Well, that was my wedding, This is Sister's. Poor Sisler ought lo have what she wauls at her own wedding. And yon know as well as I . . ." Flora broke off, nm ; is five and the oldest What do you suppose liec eyes filled tears. "Oh, Louise, she doesn't know him al all! And she's going away w him tonight . . . alone. He may be a thief or a murderer or have half a dozen wives. I ... I can'l bear it!" "Flora, dear, this Frank may be Die very nicest man you've cvei met. What does Annabelle sa> about him? Docs she seem pleased? Happy? Excited?" Flora shook her head. "She just seems triumphant She loved telling Mother nmt Amy She got us nil together this morn ing and told us just what I've tolt istci- said: 'Please, no tears.
