'It's rather a messy habit," said Madelaine and smiled. "1 don'l ilame you." Later, when the horses had been brought to the side drive, Happy eyed the pretty chestnut mare as- igned to her, with something very ike panic. _"I don't even know how to get ~a her," she wailed. Joyce fcmghed. "Oh, well, we'll get you a. ladder," ^he teased. "Don't look so frightened. Susie Q : a lamb." A groom bent down, laced his tigers together, and said, his voice mellow and soft with the inherent melody of his race, "Jes' ptit yo' loot in ma ban 1 , ma'am, an' hold <m to dc saddle—and jump jes' a il bit" •I can* I think rm scare*" railed Happy. Joyce said sharp!}, Happy! George wiM hare a 6t and ~»M in it if you don't team to ride, 'ome cm—it's easy!" Happy drew a deep brea*, b«rt, *er a bewildering moment in which panic threatened h«r again she found herseK in fce »dc Swne Q looked back, seemed „ be assured Hint everything was »4I right, and moved oft slowly Aftrr the 6rst Jew Bappy ie»,v»ed.

"1 could, for one," she almost irowled, and Happy looked at her n surprise. Bui the moment Joyce linci touched her heel to her own horse's side and loosened the ems a little, and he dashed away down Ihe narrow path and around curve. rlAPPY stared, and gasped as Susie Q, excited by the other norse's sudden dash, tried to follow him, but Happy's tight clutch- ng on the reins controlled her and Susie Q dropped once more o her gentle walk. When Happy came around the curve in the path where Joyce 1 vanished, she found Joyce standing beside the black, in deep anil earnest conversation with angy young mnn whose riding clothes were well-worn but quite presentable. He was holding Joyce's reins, bis own horse placidly cropping grass at the edge of the paIh. The young mnn looked up sharply as Happy ciimc around the curve; Joyce said something under her breath to him and turned to Happy, saying gaily "Hi. look who's here. Happy this is David ~ ' - - Brandon, down." David mn'iled M Happy, his white teeth • pleasant flash in the deeply burned tan ot nil good- humored face.

THERE was such alter hope- tessnesE, such bitterness in hci 'nice that Happy said impulsively 'If you're in love with DAvid, ano ic wants to marry you—yoti'rt lot a child—you can marry him f you want to." "Oh. sure, and slarve fc> death vhtle George adds the money Father left me to what was left o him, and David and I go wilh- ut!" said Joyce bitterly.
