In serious family council Joel Tul
bott, his wife nnd the daughter of the
house,. Ruth, discussed the Important
subject of the murrlnge of the son and
brother, Waldron, for two years man
ager of a small wholesale mercantile
house In tho city.
" 'Miss Arllnc Uni t spoko Joel Tal
bott "a pretty name."
"And pretty herself," volunteered
Ruth spontaneously. "Have you seen
her pictures, father?"
"I am about to show them to you,"
Intf ri uptod Mrs. Tnlliott with a certain
severe dignity that was rather oml- !
nous. "Niiiilron has sent us four a
sort of goddess of the season series,"
and Mr. Talbott regarded ln speaker
a trlllo uneasily, for his wife's tones
were tinged with something of sar
casm and bitterness. He wondered
why, and wns soon enlightened. An
envelop containing four photographs
was handed to him. Ho Inspected them
with curiosity and admiration and
niado the sprightly remark :
"Pretty as a picture, Isn't she?"
"Thnt Is a question," remarked Mrs.
Talbott rather snappishly. "I am not
the woman to criticise or Intcrero In
my son's prlvntc nlTalrs, but I am
bound to think of his welfare."
"Why, what are yon talking about,
Martha?" Interrogated her husband In
"If you havo eyes, can't you see for
yourself?" challenged Mrs, Talbott.
"Those four pictures tell the tale, don't
"I think she Is the most charmingly
dressed being I ever looked upon," salil
"Why, yes," nodded Mr. Talbott ap
provingly. "Oh! yon do?" flared forth the wife
and mother. "And let me ask, havo
you considered what those clothes
must eost? Why. the girl simply has
the latest and costliest gowns that
Paris can make."
"Well, even so." suggested the tol
erant Mr. Talbott. "she's fitted out for
a whole year, Isn't slip?"
"Yes. and oh ! how I would like to
see those lovC$y dresses," cried Ruth.
Mrs. Talbott was for writing at
once to Waldron, exhorting him to
think twice before he took to himself
it ruinously extravagant wife. There
her husband set his foot down hard.
Tt was not (heir province to Interfere
In the heart affairs of Waldron. Per
haps he was wedding an heiress who
could anord to wear what she liked.
Rut this Idea Mrs. Talbott scouted ut
terly by alluding to a letter written
In the past by Waldron. In which he
had stated that his fiancee way poor,
worked for her living, but was good as
gold, and would mnke him n helpful,
"Economical !" shrugged Mrs. Tal
bott, and looked desperate.
"A sister-in-law to be proud of, any
way!" whispered Ruth to herself.
"I don't blame Waldron for falling
In love with such a dream of a beauty,"
soliloquized the old man.
In a covplo of weeks the news came
Informing tho family of the wedding.
Tt was a modest, unpretentious affair.
The happy wedded pair were to come
to the Talbott home for a week and
dtie preparations were made to re
ceive them, although Mrs. Talbott went
about her duties under protest. She
feared that the bride was likely to ap
pear as a capricious, overdressed crea
ture, vain and extravagant, a sort of
human doll, with llnery and display the
leading characteristics of her shallow
It was upon a Tuesday that the wed
ded pair were expected. Ruth, at tho
gate on the tiptoe of expectation look
ing for them, was surprised to see a
cab drive up In front of the house dis
charging a single passenger, a plain,
but neatly dressed lady with a suit
case, whom she Immediately recog
nized as her sister-ln-law. Arllnc was
wondrously pretty and graceful and
there was no affectation, but eager,
pleased delight as she was welcomed
by ltuth and her mother.
"Waldron had some business to at
tend to at Wyndham," explained Ar
'llne, "and will be on with the trunks
tomorrow. How homelike and cozy It
Is here. Mother, dear, let me help
around until Waldron comes, won't
She reappeared from her room clnd
In a simple gingham gown, wearing no
Jewelry but her wedding ring, and pre
senting not the slightest trace of arti
ficiality. Mrs. Talbott was disarmed
by her simple, sensible wnys, but ltuth
awaited the arrival of those trunks
with Joyful anticipations.
"There certainly Is no Hash and gilt
ter about her," admitted Mrs. Talbott
to her husband. "She seems anxious
nnd pleased to fall right Into our home
spun ways and help all she can."
"i never was so disappointed In my
life I" pouted Ruth to girl friends tho
next, day, when tho expected treasure
house, the trunk, arrived. "Why, I've
got as pretty a glnghum frock and a
pink organdie and a white lawn as sho
"Dainty but economical," voted Mrs
Talbott. and blurted out tho lndlcn
tlons of magnificence tho pictures hnd
fixed In their minds.
"Oh I did you think all that llnery
belonged to mo?" smiled Arllnc. "In
deed, no ! You see, I was working for
a garment house as camera girl. That
Is, I posed for their fashion plates In
their newest and finest frocks."
