I in summer .\vhile \vent over . lo the JTorbcses' mansion thai evening, Wp found Mr.DeMaria's four-piece self. orchestra tuning up 1 in the front hall. Flora, in pale blue and pinlt flowered organdy, came running to meet us and hugged us both. Her mother, Amy, and Nelson greeted us more soberly. Mrs. Tolliver's eyes were red, and her hands trembled. ' The grandfather clock in the hall struck eight lingering strokes. On the eighth stroke Ih6 orchestra began the Lohengrin wedding inarch. Down the'staircase came Gloria Louise and Theodora, both in fluffy white and carrying stifi little round bouquets. They had some difficulty in managing (he stairs,- Theodora particularly; The- odora'v.'as not yet three. Finally in despeiation, she turned aroum and came dov.'n back\vard. That simple childish act brdke the tension. Everyone smiled. 1 looked up. Annabellc, in a light ribbed silk suit in nalc beige, a cream embroidered lingerie blouse, and a small brown straw hal, stood .with Sam on the landing. She carried a little muff of ycllov; sweet peas. How pretty she was i—I^liad foi gotten how pretty. \' From where I stood I could look:.into HID front parlor. I saw the Reverend Willis arid a tall, ithin man in a dark business suit, .with a brown skin and a groal deal of black hair, go into the parlor and stand together before the .•flower - banked, candle - lighted mantel. So this was Frank Hait- \vell. : l .His restless dark eyes, under (heavy brows, took in the room, the [candlelight, the masses oE flowers '—counted, 1 swear, the lwcnl> jdozen yellow roses. Whether OL i not he approved I could not tell (The C3 r es bad darlcd lo the hall Jwere taking us all in, judging us isumming us up. When the eyes L HOWEJMBIU.M! By MATEEL HOWE FARNHAM | fell on me, standing by Father, I though't lie gave a little start. Then he glanced again al Mrs. Tollivcr, nt Amy and Flora. "Not bad," I imagined him telling him- Only when he had made up his mind about his new relatives did the bridegroom turn and look al the bride. What lie saw obviously )leascd him. His eyes lighted, and 10 smiled. 1 smiled, loo, in sympathy. Perhaps this Frank really was in love with Annabclle; perhaps everything was going lo be all right. Then the bridegroom licked his lips, his too red lips. Suddenly, without rhyme on reason, I detested him, . | u ._.,_ AS Father had said, Mr. Harl" well's manners were pcrfccl. Ife was reserved, but said cxnolly the right things to everyone. When the ceremony was over, he kissed Mrs. Tolliver's cheek and thanked her for the inestimable gift of her daughter; he kissed Amy's and Flora's hands, lie invited them all lo come lo se'e Annabelle and him in Fittsfield, and lie (hnnked Florn for the beauty and perfection of the wedding. When lie cnmc to me he merely shook lands and asked if I were not of \cw England ancestry. I said I was, on both sides, and he said it was evident. But same.-time later, nfter the supper, he sought me out in the hall, where 1 happened to be alone, and told me gravely lhat I reminded him greatly of his dear dead wife. He said her name had also been Louise. JIc said it made bund between us, that he hoped I would be his friend. I was shocked and painfully embarrassed, but managed to blurt out something. I must have bit on the right thing, for Frank—he saici I was to call him Frank—thanked me and opened the back of his watch mid showed me a small photograph of a dark-haired girl with a pompadour. 1 said she was very pretty, that there might be a slight resemblance. It's more than slight," Frank insisled. He added soberly: ".She was a saint on earth, (he finest woman 1 ever met in my life." By this lime i had got over my embarrassment. I said coldly: ;.'T!iis hardly seems the time or place. . . . After all, you have just married a new wife." "Thai is true. And she has all my loyally and affection. Uut lhat docs nut (.'hange in any way the loyally and affeclion I owe Ihc beloved mother of my dear children." "Yon have n large hc.'ii-l," I (old him, us lightly as I could. To my surprise he,said: "You don't like me, and f am sorry. It I had the time I could make you like me. The other Louise did not like me cither at first." Fortunately al this moment Nelson answered my distress signals and came up lo say that Sam had just opened a fresh bottle of champagne, ami Father was about lo propose a toast. .... toeal A Lonf DteUnoa MoTtnf OomiifltcEt Help mud erpilpnittnt.
