'"eticr's c esa.=s Trcman didn't cor: e tcc?.~. so Motser vreat ahead and a red tbe mattresses and did every £.:!v thing like that and It prettv n^nr brought on a nervous hesdache. So when Daddy came home and she was potiadisg the stesk ae said. 'Xo core ol this. We'll jump ia the car and go over town for cicner.' And he took the plate r'S-t a*-ay froa her, be said the steak vrould keep and -- I am hurryiag. bat you know how I an. I hare to te!l things in my Own ^ay -- and Mother said she wouldn't dress and put on a corset for any dinner on earth, and Daddy said. 'Jnst put on your coat over your hocse dress, you're as sweet as a daisy and neat as a pin, and we'll go r.ght up here to this neighborhood place, we can get something.' So we did. And we hadn't muca more tnar taken our seats at the tabls In there ttaa who should come walk as ia but Him! "I t^ocrht I'd die! Hoaest, darling. I t jousat I'd just pass out. He had h s hat a littla one-sided, and he :_-J h s cane and everything, and L never se'w him look more handscme. He gave me one of those cool, penetrating glances of his. £:u 1 conld see he recognized me r =4t o2 -- but, of course, he did- t let on or anything. He just pulled out his chair and sat down fac ng rce. Facing me! Feature that. Mary-Frances -- facing me. He loo"-.c cren more handsome sitting than ce does standing. Tnere sec-nc . to be worlds of unspoken j-j^ t c-s in his eyes, too. Til bet t -- ^nd collars that he thought, se^ z us together every afternoon. th:: - e were sisters, acd he was ·wort, .as and kind of mutely asking r · you -were. He loves yoL "a -y Frances. Tne more I loo. ;j at him the more I was certain of his unspoken love for you. One o; my strong psychic hunches "Dare!" sold Mary-trances, at this critical time--" came to me. You know how I get Tb- them--I am *"// JOB think Fd back down now a A XD thea when I was just posl- ·"· lively dying anyway with excitement and everything, you know. Daddy lool'ed up and saw Mm. and he said to Mother. Trudie, there's that young fellow -who took the part of the brother in the show iast night.' "I thought I'd die, I Just about passed oat. It was too perfectly thrilling. 'Xactor end everything. But I never let on. I jnst opened my eyes in what yon. call my big- eyed. Innocent ·way, you know, and I said, 'Do you know him. Daddy?" "Well, of course. Daddy didn't know Mm, bnt I kept on looking Innocent, anff^: began to purnp, and' I pumped and pmnped, and I found oat everything, and Daddy and Mother never dreamed that I was interested or anvthing--I am hurrying. "He's a member of the Stephen G. Sperry Players. You know, they are putting oa a one-act play two times every night right over here at the Hong Kong. They just started this -week, so that's what he's been doing around this neighborhood and why we've never seen him before. He's not the leading man. or he wasn't in. the show the folks, saw (that's where they went when they sneaked off last night while I was at your house), and the folks didn't like- his acting so awfully much--but you know they Just absolutely aren't judges of things like that at alL "Member, they didn't even like Chester Fairfield la the New Western Stock Company last winter, nor anything. They don't care much for Ronald Colman, even. ev"re awfully crazy that way--I am hurrying. , "I tried to see what he ordered, but I couldn't tell, but it looked like a steak, because he had such a hard time cutting It. He Just went on eating, in a perfectly cool kind of masterful, dignified way, but ever" once in a while he'd lift those wonderful brown eyes of his in a kind of mute appeal like asking ·where was my beautiful sister. " Tfafter while Daddy said for me to stop staring at that fellow, that I was attracting his attention, but Mother said nonsense X was only a little girL So then I said, with another of my big-eyed innocent looks, as yon say, that I wondered what nis name was. Mother felt in her coat pocket on the back of tbe chair, and there was the program from last night; she'd saved it for the 'Coming Attractions/ you know. She put it in the menu, so he wouldn't see we were talking about him; and now listen, darling. You'll hardly believe it. His first name is EarL One of your farorite names for men. And now listen. His last name is DeArmount. Capital D. e. Capital A, r, m, o. u, n, t. Karl DeArmount! Isn't that the most marvelous thrilling name? A Me' and everything! I nearly died when I read it right there on the program. And Earl always being your favorite name, next to Christopher and Anthony and Hilary, lor men. It's just simply more than coincidence. It's just like you'd known from childhood days that you were going to meet a man named Earl, and souls reaching out to souls and thought telepathy and everything. I guess that 3nst about i proves it more Chan anrtblc could. They just bad pie for dessert, and I saw him shake bis ceaxt klal of bored and superior, that b« didn't want any. But he ate awfully slowly, acd be hadn't finished when we left, acd I bad to walk right past him. I could of almost touched him. My heart was beating so fast it pretty nearly etiSed ma. and my knees snook and everything. Hot erea for your aaie. darling, I d'.dnt dare glance at bid as we passed. I'd of died. I know I would, and Mother was right behind me and every thing. "But when Daddy was paying tbe check, up in front. I did klad of glance toward him. Mary-France*, be'd kind of turned around in bis chair, and be warn looking right at me! I nearly passed out. And 1 cant explain it, bnt right then another one of my psychic hnnche* ,-ame to me--yon know bow they do -and U was Just as if be'd said, la M many words to me. 'It you girl* are downtown tomorrow after school I am going to come up and speak to you.' "Hell do It, Mary-Prances, i · know U with all my Innermost be- I ing. It makes me just kind o! tremble all over. Do you suppose \ we'll dare? The more I tbink about it. honest, tbe more I think we jnst I absolutely won't dare. I was thinking, like Danty and Beatrice, U . might !ust come to be one of those . beautiful, passing dreams--" j "Dare! Well, Ermlntrude Hill, j if you think I'd back down now, at i this crucial time, after--" Mary- I Frances stopped, caught ber breath j sharply. Deep annoyance, coupling I so suddenly with her intense ex; citement, had all but betrayed ber-- "after we've promised Miss Byerly that we'd take part and everything--" Mis* Byerly was their Sunday- school teacher. « · V A XN hung up the dishpan. and *·*· turned on the faucet above tbe sink, and swished tbe water about with a brush, and decided to let that do for this evening. Phil, sorely. would be here now before long. Phil was late again. She did not mind, because she bad heard or read that tbe secret of successful love lay not In Ignoring faults but in recognizing them and not minding them. Years ago, when Phil had alway* been early, she bad not minded that, and so, sensibly, there was no reason for minding now because be was always late. Probably It was merely a habit and not a fault at all; or were habits* and faults tbe same? She took two damp tea towels from the seat of a chair and went to hang them on tbe rack above tbe store. It was mean of Mary-Frances to skip off, as she bad. before the tinware was washed. It bad been sweet of Cecily to offer to help, though she should have known Ann would not allow it when shs had company. Cecily was in love. For nearly 10 minutes Ann had forgotten it. Poor Cissy--* Ann caught it back and tried to correct It. She likes it, of course. I am In love, and I like It. Of course I like it I must IiKe being in love with Phil --who Is always lat*. She turned out the kitchen light and went through tbe big dining room into the front halL Mary- Frances was coming quietly down the stairs, and she tipped ber chin to sanciness as she answered Ann'* question.
