Durlup the evening, I-Inrn dUnppenred for n -while with JOIIFIJT Jiob Flnnernn. , * * • } VI *& ' 5 we walked home Father asked •me if I had had a good time. A wonderful time," I said truthfully. "It was a beautiful party. But I feel awfully indebted to the Tollivers. I'll have to do something for them." "You might give a party in their honor. People haven't been very nice to them, and it makes me hot under the collar. They're nice people, even if a little flamboyant. If we back them up publicly, everyone will fall in line." I was more than a little annoyed that Father had suggested the party without waiting for me to do so, but I agreed that was an in a particularly fortunate posi* tion. Ycrti can afford to wait until the right man comes along or not to marry at all If you so prefer. The lovely Florabelle and Annabelle can't." * * * 'THE next morning Leah brought me a breakfast tray. She had barely gone downstairs -when I heard giggles /and greetings and what Father called Leah's belly laugh. In a few minutes Florabelle and Annabelle were in my room-. They were as fresh and pretty as daisies, even though they said they had been up since 6 o'clock. "We brought back the silver and china Leah lent us," Annabelle (xplained. "And we had to run upstairs and tell you how beautiful you looked last night," Flora drawled. I knew that I was anything but beautiful, yet the praise was very soul-satisfying. I told them I wanted* to give a large party for them and their sister and mother, perhaps a garden f&oths, and w-hfte trtftfe In th« mayonnaise.

In the New York papers the smart set always served tea, afternoons. . * * * 1 T DON'T know just when it was; but certainly before the invita-< lions were out, that Flora pathei timidly let drop the idea that w« make it a supper instead of an afternoon party. She said thai since it was so hot, everyone would be certain to come late and want to stay later. "I hadn't planned on serving supper," I said a little coldly. "Ij would mean a lot more work, and with the mob of people I have on my list it would be extremely expensive." Flora's face fell.

I said that it was impossible not to like the Tollivcr girls, especially flora and Annabelle. They were so pretty and worked so hard. I added that I didn't like the way they threw themselves at the heads of Cousin Sam and Mr. Nelson men old enough to be their fathers' 1 said it was undignified, that It made me a little sick. .. " W} \ a t els e can they do, poor things?" said my father. "It's a choice between Sam and Nelson and their Uncle Lafe's grocery store. You, my dear daughter, are , We're not used to kindness," she said to me. "It's the loveliest thing that ever happened to us," Flora got out. I felt uplifted and grand. Flora was soon laughing, and we fell to planning the party. I explained that I'd have to ask an awful mob. "The more the merrier. Sister, isn't it heavenly? Guests of honor at a huge, big, wonderful party! Were you eVer so thrilled? Think of it, a real party for us!" My idea was a simple garden party on a Saturday afternoon, with punch and sandwiches and little iced cakes. But both Flora and Annabelle took it as a matter of course that I would have elaborate refreshments. They had g - tul," she said dolefully, "but 1 thought that Sister and I could help with the work, and we're ex-, pert at pinching pennies. You'd hardly need a single extra thing if you turned the tea into a supn per, except possibly a ham." Sud-t -- -liUlon Corp Hcth Stool . . Chrysler Corp Cont Jlntoi-H .

If you substituted vea! for half the chicken you could serve the whole lot for a dollar 01 two. Really, Louise darling, i| would be an economy in the end. as you wouldn't have to give an-, other party for ages. And it would be such fun." ; Looking back, it gives me 4 warm glow to remember that I finally allowed Flora to have hei) head and, instead of a niggardly, commonplace afternoon lawn party, gave the "fete champetre" of Flora's dreams, i I never dreamed then, of coursej of the consequences of that party or what it would do to both Flora and Annabelle. - ; *. .(To Be Continued); • A.' • ' u van, All of Lot number 6 and the S 16 ; y iL trtt of ^ nurnbeT? both situated in Block 36 of the Fraser addition of the city of .Pampa.
