"Weyman must have been dreaming," Flora laughed. She was on my front porch one morning, stretched out in a swing. The early autumn sunshine dappled her face and her loosely-cut lemon-colored dimity dress with a pattern of elm leaves. Her skin was as smooth and fresh as rose petals. ' I said: "All right. It's none of my business. Leah has a loaf of fresh bread. . , ." i "Darling, it is your business—I mean I know you aren't just curious, having elected yourself my conscience. But I promised Sam )| ' "You're wrong," I interrupted hurriedly. "It was just plain vulgar curiosity." "Well, you're honest anyway." 1 I made no comment. ' Presently Flora's eyes twinkled and she asked: "Is your curiosity all but killing you?" | "Very nearly." '. Flora laughed and told me all about it. Her story was that she found out her father was going to •see Sain, and she asked if she couldn't go along. When he not only sternly refused, but went off carrying a heavy stick, she was frightened half out of her wits. So she slipped out of the back door and ran over to the Forbeses. As It was already dusk *nd the- lights on, she was ablfc to stand close by an open window and hear every word that was said, * * * TpLORA claimed to have almost * died of shsirne at her father's absurd and unwarranted attack on dear splendid, upright Sam, the truest friend, the kindest neighbor and most unselfish benefactor four forlorn women ever had. She almost made up her,.mind to force her way into the room and fling her father's silly accusations in his very teeth. "Why didn't you?" "Just plain vulgar curiosity. Naturally I Wanted to find out what Sam would say, whether he would dare stand up to Daddy." "Well, you found out," I commented a little dryly. "Yes, I found out. Oh, Louise darling, how I wish you had been there! Sam was magnificent. He was like Saint George charging the dragon. I was never so thrilled in my life or so deeply, humbly proud that a man like Sam had once loved a silly, good-for-nothing little thing like me. It gave me ... well, it made me glad I had lived." "So you stayed behind and told Sam so?" "Seriously, I hardly know what I told him, I was so thrilled and exalted. Sam was so understanding and sweet. . . ." There were actual tears in Flora's eyes. I got little more out of her except praises of Sam and the insistence that I did Mot appreciate my cousin. After a half-hour of this, Flora said she must go, and I walked with her to the hedge. She pushed through the gap we had worn running back and forth to each other's houses. ^ "Goodby," I said. "Goodby, Cousin Louise darling," Flora called softly. I knew then that in spite of the handicap of carrying another man's unborn child, Florabelle had _. last ifuttta n;6» «&a „ was engaged to be fair MM t& fej cousin Sam. Flort had pulled it oft? Or Fl«r« and Mr. Tblliver between them? Otsego never answered thes* questions satisfactorily. The fcn- gagement was not announced officially until si* weeks after Flora's baby was born, and Sam stubbornly refused to discuss it. Nevertheless Flora wore Sam's ring, and everyone knew about it. Otsego was fit to be tied. * * * T^ROM his first sight of Florabellfl Tolliver at her brother's funeral, Sam had been more or less in love with her. He hadn't wanted to get married, he had not approved of the Tollivers, he had considered his dignity, his position. The drawbacks of -marrying into that flamboyant family had al times appeared truly insupportable. Put all the while, underneath, he was still in love with Flora. Now at last he had flung over the traces and booted his dignity out c£ the window. He had counted the cost and did not care. For the first time in his life he was recklessly, wildly happy. He saw himself as Flora's champion. Hadn't Flora herself likened him to Saint George fighting the dragon? Those two months certainly were the happiest time of Sam's life. Perhaps they were of Mrs. Tolliver's, too. Flora's marriage to Bob Finneran had put a blight on her family, Flora, if not her mother's favorite, was the one to whom she had pinned her hopes for future peace and security, for both herself and her daughters. Amy might marry, dully and respectably; her mother did not count on it. Annabelle, in spite of her beauty and charm, was not quite clever enough to conceal her eagerness to make a good match and so frightened oK the eligible men. But Florabelle was a natural honeypot. Mrs. Tolliver had gambled on Flora, staked her all. And now Flora, after many digressions and in spite of almost insuperable handicaps, had made good and justified all her mother's high hopes, (To Be Continued) yearliims. fairly active, steady ton medium and frood cows steady but. trade not fully established on lower grades, hulls steady; vealers and ealves slow g'ood and choice grades steady R-nod and choice beef steurs 'larpely L'li.OO.lT.aO: (rood short fed steers 21.'..10-21.3",; god and choice heifers and mixed yearlings L'D.Sio-^; heifers at latter price: few medium and Kood short fed heifers 19.00-22,50; to|i medium and pood cows 10.7ti-10.00; most early sales 1S.OO-2H.OO on medium n ml Rood; top «ood and choice he Ulat 21.00 and above load light yeurliiiKs at 22.00; medium and 'iwn.'ly sood Miockers IS.50-19.50; few OUT OUR WAY LUCKY STRIKE presents THE MAN WHO KNOWS- THE TOBACCO AUCTIONEER!
