One hot July morning when Flora came running up our steps, she 'was obviously bursting with im- .portant news. It Was Annabelle, she got out. Annabelle was going to be married that very night, to a man none of them had ever seen. Annabelle herself had never laid eyes on him till yesterday. He was ,a widower with four children, a graduate. of Harvard. Annabelle claimed he was very well off. It 'had all been arranged a month or six weeks ago, but Annabelle never said a single word about him until this'morning. "But I thought you said she met him just yesterday," I exclaimed. "I did. She did. But she and this Frank have been corresponding for a long time. Some traveling man told Sister about Frank and that he was terribly lonely, but terribly shy, and the children running wild and needing a mother and looking after. And then he went back and told Frank he had met just the girl for him. He even had a snapshot of Sister. 'And then Frank sent Sister a little note, and Sister answered, and Frank sent back his picture and a picture of his house—it's a very nice house —and his children, and they went on writing, and finally they arranged for Frank to come on and see Sister and if they liked each other to get married immediately. And today is the day. He's in Bing- hamtpn at the moment on business. Imagine thinking of business on his wedding day!. He's coming here at four o'clock," "What does he look like?" I finally got in. "Well, his picture—it's in a family group—is sort of blurred. He's tall and has a lot of hair, and the children are darlings, all boys. The youngest is five and the oldest thirteen. What do you suppose Sister will do with fqur lively boys? When f asked her, she just sort of smiled. She, has all her trousseau, bought pri the sly; so she must have made', up her mind to marry him longibefore sh* saw him. Amy and Mother insisted the wedding shcmld be at their house, at Sister's own home, but Sister said no, Sam was the older brother-in-law, and anyway she wanted Sam to give her away. You and your fatiier, are the only people invited to the wedding except the immediate family. Be at my house at a quarter to eight sharp." * * * T ASKED if I could help in any way. I could in every way. There were flowers to be picked and arranged, food to be ordered. Sam had yet to be told the news and persuaded to give the bride away. "Nelson ought to do that," I said. "Considering -that Annabelle and Sam fight like cats and dogs, you would think that Annabelle would prefer Nelson, if she has to be given away. Or your mother. Your mother gave you away, I remember." "Well, that was my wedding. This is Sister's. Poor Sister ought to have what she wants at her own wedding. And you know as well as I .. ." Flora broke off, and her eyes filled with tears. "Oh, Louise, she doesn't know him at ! And she's going away with riim tonight . . . alone. He may be a thief or a murderer or have lialf a dozen wives. I ... I can't bear it!" "Flora, dear, this Frank may be the very nicest man you've ever met. What does Annabelle say about him? Does she seem pleased? Happy? Excited?" Flora shook her head. "She juct seems triumphant. She loved telling Mother and Amy. She got us all together this morning and told us just what I've told you. Mother began to CEJU and is aft fexcelleAt arfart|eiftelrt l v tt! making.' Then sh6 look us tftj- stairs*and sfioflred us hfer troTis- seau and told-me just what shs Wanted for her Wedding—no supper, just sanattieftes and champagne. But I'm having ehickert and stoeetbtead salad and a wed* ding cake. It would be heathenish to be married without a wedding cake " Flora and I spetit a busy day, and Flora soon cheered up, as she always did «rhen she was having a party. * * * T GOT home at five o'clock, too A excited to be tired. Suddenly T remembered that I had no wedding present for Annabelle. Well, we could send something later. Father had gone to call on the bridegroom, and I could hardly wait for him to get home. I was on the front.porch and Leah at the screen door as Father climbed the steps. "What's he like" I called out. "I swear 1 don't know," Father said, dropping heavily into a porch chair. "The man's a gentleman, [ should say, about 40, not bad- looking, but there's something about him I don't like. His eyes are too close together, and his lips are too red. On the other hand behaved very well. It was a Tying situation. Sam and Nelson n loco parentis asked him a lot of very personal questions, and he answered them nil very'frankly and sensibly. He owns a small optical factory in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, and makes about ten thousand a year, good years, so that financially Annabelle is doing well for herself. He furnished Sam nnd Nelson with nil sorts of )ankers' references, the name of his family clergyman, 'and a list of his clubs. Of cours«> they won't have time to investigate them, but hey think and 1 think that Mr. Hartwsll spoke, the absolute truth and that all in all Annabelle is [etting quite a catch." "Well, that's gorgeous," I said, 'but I still think there's something queer about a man who has to pick out a perfect stranger hi order to get married."
