All Mrs. Tolliver's fihancial problems wo\ild nave been solved overnight if Flora could have coaxed or persuaded Sam to move across the Street and live with the Tollivers, turning his share of the Forbes Mansion, which he and Nelson owned jointly, over to Nelson. Flora did make one or two timid attempts on her honeymoon to put the idea over, but got nowhere. i . "Give up my own house, the House built by my grandfather?" Sam exclaimed, "You aren't serious, are you?" V "But it's also Nelson's house." ." "iTou mean you don't want Neleon to live with us?" i "Oh, I wouldn't turn dear kind Nelson out of his own home for anything in the world. I just thought if we had to live with 'someone, it might as well be Mama," it- But Sam, ns Flora afterward told me, said with great finality that her plan was all nonsense and that Iw had already engaged a perfectly reliable middle-aged woman ~4o help Weyman with the house( work and to look after Gloria i Louise when he and Flora wanted itt> step out. !»' It was Annabelle who made it Quite a grievance that Flora was 'not consulted when Sam made his plans for their future. i "I'd prefer a hovel to that great gloomy barn of a house," Anna- 1 belle said, "In a hovel Flora could .fit least choose her own furniture." i • Couldn't Flora see that it was '6our grapes that inspired Anna' belle's taunts? Annabelle would have given her eycteeth to be ihistress of the Forbes mansion. TtfHEN Annabelle made her jealousy of Flora evident, I believe I realized for the first time how much Annabelle had changed in the last few years. She was still lovely, but there were now bitter little lines about her mouth, and her voice was often fretful and complaining. She was sarcastic where she had once been good- natured. She still went about with this boy or that, still held her head high and- laughed and flattered where she thought it would do the most good. But she worked too hard, made it too plain that she desperately wanted to make a good marriage. Whether she had then given up all hopes of marrying Nelson I did not know. She was always charming to him, and he still seemed to like her. The truth was, as I know now, that Annabelle's disappointment had hardened into bitter self-pity. Annabelle had long been aware that she had to prepare to earn her own living, and some months before, she had enrolled in a business college. All the same she counted, or at least half counted, on Sam. It was not beyond the bounds of possibility that Sam might be moved to make her and her mother an adequate allowance. Instead, when Sam canie home from his honeymoon, he said it was high time that Annabelle went to work. He sent word by Flora that he would get her a job. Annabelle's bitterness was immediately concentrated on Sam. This was hardly fair. Sam soon had troubles of his own. „ * * , TT was one of Sam's inducements —I won't say bribes—to obtain Flora's consent to an early marriage that she should buy her trousseau in New York, and he would pay for it. Flora brought home n trunkful of new, very beautiful, and extremely expensive clothes, many of. them French Hloctefe. ffote aB?Ttnoffe'feept'conii- ing. And there were linens, laceS; exquisitely embroidered towels and napkins and sheets—hundreds and hundreds of dollars' worth, Sam, who should have known better, had,, fatuously allowed Flora to open accounts all over New York, and Flora had leaped to it. Sam, however, seemed as happy and content as any bridegroom could be. He was pathetically proud of Flora, her beauty and her new clothes, proud to lake her about, to accept the invitations that were now showered on the bridal pair. Flora was too good-natured to cherish resentment, to hold alodf from proffered kindness because of remembered slights. Otsego gave Sam and Flora a week to settle down; after that I almost never looked out of my south window without seeing a car or, carriage standing before tho Forbescs' front door or perhaps* two to four matrons in white gloves and their best plumed hats, with cardcascs in their hands, coming up the street on foot. After the formal colls came the equally formal dinners and card parties or receptions. The card parties or receptions were strictly feminine, and the ages usually were mixed. But a, dinuer raised a problem. Should Sam's middle- aged friends <u- young people 01 Flora's age be invited to do honw to the bridal pair? As the hostesses were usually middle-aged themselves, they nearly always invited their own contemporaries and one young couple as a sop lor Flora.' Often Father and I were asked instead of the couple. I found the dinners extremely dull and hard to sit through. I am afraid I soon looked as bored as I felt, but Flora acted beautifully. Otsego was, I thought, a little disappointed that Flora behaved so well and that no fireworks or even a quarrel followed on the heels of the honeymoon. For the moment Otsego was almost bored with the Tollivers. I actually went to an afternoon party where they were never mentioned once. ptsego was far too pessimistic. There were fireworks . aplentj when the bills finally came in. / ® (To Be Continued) '" """ Officers Can't Decide What io Do With Loot EDINBURG—(/P)— What to do with a large quantity of knives and marijuana was the problem facing ge^ldolgo County sheriff, office | p The unusual assortment of knives | _____ nncl rolls of marijuana were the result of a raid on a gambling gtimc Deputy Sheriff L.
