Slip nnme* bi-r Tlicodorn. The Miild In homely nnd nnnttrnc- llrc. id «. * xxin A T--IJ this while the three rc- -• mainin* Tollivers had continued living in Sam's large house rent free. Early in the following year n small and not unattractive five-room cottage on the other side of town came on the market, and Sam promptly rented it for twenty- five dollars a month. He announced to Amy that he had paid the rent of. the cottage for six months and that he expected the Tollivers to move into it by February first. Flora cried add protested, said she had never needed her mother as she now needed her (her third baby was then on the way), but Sam by this time was hardened to Flora's tears. Olsego received with enormous complacency the news that Mrs. Tolliver and her two daughters were moving to a cottage on West Main Street. They had started living next to a grocery store, Otsego said; it was fitting for them to go back to it or the equivalent. Flora, by hook' or by crook, had got herself one of the town's handsomest mansions, &nd little did she appreciate it or her many blessings, if even half the stories one heard were true. Otsego had no spark of sympathy for the fuss Mrs. Tolliver made over Flora's having another baby. Why shouldn't she have a baby? Instead of upseUing Flora. Otsego thought Mrs. Tolliver would be much better employed looking after Annabelle. Annabelle's long and undignified pursuit of Nelson Forbes had got nowhere. Nelson might have been attracted once, but unlike-' that simpleton Sam, Nelson was far too astute and thought too much of his ditnity to marry a Tolliver. Mrs. Tolliver would do well to point out to Annabelle that it would be wise- to swallow her medicine and like it. Annabelle had had every chance, no opposition, no rivals.... Annabelle, to her surprise and everyone else's, did have strong opposition and a shrewd rival. * * * • ONE clear, sunny Saturday morn• ir,g toward the end of January, r-felson telephoned early to ask whether Father, and 1 would drive over with him to Bingham- lon. There was snow • on the ground, but qie roads were rlear, and lie promised a spec>il lunch at the Arlington HotoK Father and .1 were very pleased to accept. When Nelson came for us about 10 o'clock we saw that Amy Tolr liver was on the front seat. I would have thought nothing .of it if it had been Annabelle instead of Amy or if Annabelle had been along. :.•-.-. Trie drive over was pleasant but uneventful, Nelson ordered a beautiful -lunch and a bottle of champagne. .He wanted us to drink a toast* he said, a toast to the dearest, finest little .woman in the world. He raised his glass. I glanced at Amy and she was blushing. "To the future Mrs. Nelson Forbes," Nelson said. "Amy!" I-cried. "You mean that you and Amy ..." • • , Nelson nodded and kissed Amy's hand. "Well, I'll be ," Father said. He expressed my sentiments., I was never so completely surprised, so nearly bowled over in my life. "What about Annabelle?" I nearly blurted out. Somehow I managed a few halting conifl-atulations. After I had drunk Nelson's toast and a few more, it was easier. At half-past two Nelson looked at his watch and suggested that Amy might like to freshen up a bit. He hoped sho hadn't forgotten a very important engagement. . . . Th«fe was no one fn the ladles* room. *' • "v "Amy, does Ann . . . does your mother knotv?" I asked as soon as the door closed behind us; "No one khoWS tout you and your father," Amy Said. . "Not even Sam?. Of Flora?" Amy shook her head and explained: "We thought it would be better to tell no one until afterward, .We didn't want any . . . any excitement.r. We didn't want -to involve Sarh or-Flora." .She lifted lie* 1 head- and -faced -me defiantly.- It wasn't: my fault that Nelson wanted rnfe and not . . ,:not someone el^e." ' - .. <t « * A MY said she had left home this . morning at the usual time, merely telling her mother not to expect her : until. she • saw her. Father and 1 would have to break the news that she was not corning hbme for a week or two. Father and I could, drive the car back, as Amy and Nelson were taking the late afternoon train to New York. .When we came out of the ladies' room, Nelson. had yellow orchids for Amy-and a lavender one--lor me. We drove to a Presbyterian parsonage, and Amy ahcTNelso.n were ,marriedi After -it Was all over and we were driving-home alone. Father said we were none of us very smart not to have realized .that it was Amy that Nelson was after and not Annabelle. He said the marriage was entirely- suitable.. Arny was older than Annabelle- and now at an age to- be willing to settle down anl.adapt herself to an older man's slower, pqce. He believed they would be very happy. :"Do yoti think Amy is in love with-Nelson?" ."I hope so. At least she is extremely, gralefuK • By the \yay, the Tollivers-.won't be moving out of our neighborhood. Nelson Jim authorized nic to sec -to, that. He means to buy the house they're in from Sam and give it to Amy as a wedding present." "Do y-pu mean they're all going to ILVe there together?" . "Exactly. Nelson's very fond of Mrs; Tollivcr: and Annabelle and takes it as a-matter of course that they, will/live .with him and Amy."
