Anna- Jbelle ne\*er canic home once dnr- ling all that time and never invited la member of her family to visit 'her. Amy may have- written to jher mother, as Flora claimed she jdid, but if so, Mi's. Tolliver kept jher own counsel. Kelson, who had Uong since given up hope 01 tracing shis missing wife, grew older and •grayer and more and more stooped. |He continued to live with his imother-in-lau' and found great '.comfort in his handsome, quiet, ;wcll-l)chavcd twin sons. Flora had ;no more children, bill got along jno belter with Snm. Olscga man|aged to drum up a modicum of icxeitemsnt over their constant quarrels. i Although I continued lo live in (Ithaca,-I was in Otsego often and' •spent mncT of my summers there. J Once I had gone hcme for n [brief visit when Maisic Maxwell jielephonecl to say she had some- jthing exciting to tell me. I invited fher to conic over. | "Who do you think I've seen?" SMaisie panted out as she climbed •our front steps. Moisie v.-ns in- jclined toward plumpness ami cxcr- •tion.made her breathing difficult. | .','! couldn't guess," I said. ! "Annab'iilc—Annabelle Tolliver fHarlweli, no less," Mnisie said, ns jshe dropped, into a chair. Obvi- jously she cxpecicd me to be sur- Iprised, and I was. i "I was in Boston visiting my •brother," Maisic explained, fan- ining herself with her handkcr- Ichief. "Brolhcr motored me [through Pitlsficlcl on a business (trip to Vermont, and on the way [back I said I'd just drop off and imake a call on Annabcllc and go jback lo Boston by train, so 1 did." } "I'm surprised ffcc saw you," i • said. "You know Lila Midkiff •and Sarah Council and Mr. and [Mrs. Crane all called on hcv in Pitlsficld at various times, and lite maid always said she wai; out." « * * «T KNEW Hint," Maisic laughed, •^ "so when I filially found the linusc—it's a bif* bvick house, but so plain, nut a porch on it—I just rang the bell, and when tlio maid came ! pur.hrd. my way in and said Hint 1 \vas an old fnend and 's. HarUvclt v.-as expecting me. 1 lu'.cl sent lier a postcard from Vermont and said 3 hoped to sec her; so it wasn't a lie. And then I saw thnt someone wns in a bii; hack room to the left; io I walked in, and there Annabi'lle was." "NVaj she Kind to see yon'. 1 " ."I'm afraid not, bnt she had lo pretend to be. She was lyiti^ on a sofa by the fire and looked perfectly awful, sick I mean, and so thin and old, with deep lines in her face. Hut .she f^ol up and shook hands and said how nice of me and we'd KO in the drav.'iufi-room. But I pretended to shiver and plumped down by (ho fire and snicl slie mustn't treat me like company iintl anyivay I was fro/j.'ti. So Annabel!?, after looking (Jaegers at me, rang the bell and ordered the maid;—tiin ugliest maid I ever saw my life—ugh, she'd turn the milk—to brine me some sherry uiul poundcake. It was wonderful cake, tlic best I ever tasted. I ate three pieces. And that's how I got a sight of the idiot." "The idiot?" I gasped. -" "Yes, the youngest boy. lie was there in the room. That's why I was so determined to stay. Well, perhaps he's not exactly an idiot, but there's something definitely queer. I will ray lie shook hand very nicely, and lie said, 'I'm very Kind to meet you, Miss Maxwell", two or three limes like a parrot. Then he looked over at Aimabelle, as if pitifully anxious lo fiml out if he'd clone tlic ri^ht thing." ''CO that's why Annabcllc ncvci asked anyone to visit her," J ".\'ul only Ihc boy, but the mr:lh- r—[ mean the grandmother. SUe's i horrible oltl witch. 1 hndn'l any i'j (lian Jinished my cake, when heard a lap-tap-tap on the pol- "sbed llonr of the next room like in angry \voodpcekcr, and there I Ilir door glarm!: at me was the Host dreadful oltl woman 1 ever saw in my life. She had on n )lack dress and a gr.-iy shawl, and "he looked actually clirly—ami ncan! The poor queer- boy began o whimper ;nul dropped his cake, md Annubellc- made a bound and mslicd the old hag through the loor :mcl shut it, but before H was shut liglil I heard the mother- ii-Jiiw screech: 'Who is that woman? What do you mean i^iv- ng her my best poundcake?' " "I'oor Anmibelle," 1 said and hiveicil ;i little. "Did you see •'rank HnrlvvcU?" "Yes, f did. It was after 5 vheu 1 got to the house, ami Anna- jclle tried her best to get rid of , hinting she had to dress and nil (hat. I saitl my train didn't ve until after 7 and could 1 itist .'.it there till train lime. 1-Ynnk Karlwell came home a littlo after j. 1 must say he was very nice to ne, elrovn me to the train and \vas very cordial and friendly. !Ie asked about you, by Hie way. Arkcd i:ie if 1 didn't think you looked like his dear dead wife— those were his actual word.-:. He took mo into the front parlor— excuse me, the drawing-room—to show me her picture. It's n lifc- sizc painting over the lireplaee. lie (old me lie had lefl the house exactly as bis dcnd wife had left it—I must ray it looked it—so the children could grow up picturing her as still there in spirit. Dkl you ever hear anything so horrible iu your life?" "IVu, 1 never did," I said truthfully. "llul it's the bey who haunts me," M:ii.<iu said. "lie lias such ~ad eyes, and i think he's afraid of hii father. I can forgive Annabelle anything because she is gentle with him." 1 forgave her wholeheartedly, forgave oven her unkinduces to her mother, I think Olscgo fin-gave her too after they had heard Mui£iu'u story.
