Tl wus"ono day wlujn I wns In there
buying some white thread for Nurso
Sarnli, nnd It was u little while after
I hnd naked the doctor If 11 divorce
whs a dlKease. Somebody had Bald
something that made mo think you
could buy divorces, and I hud maidenly
determined to ask Mr. Jones If he had
them for sale. (Of course nil this
sounds very silly to me now, for I
know Hint a divorce Is very simple
and very common. It's Just like a
nWrlngo certificate, only It unmur
rles you Instead of marrying you;
but I didn't know It then. And If I'm
going to tell- this story I've got to
tell It Just as It happened, of course.)
Well, 1 asked Mr. Jones If you could
buy divorces, nnd If be had them for
Well, I Asked Mr. Jones If You Could
uy Divorces, and If He Had Them
side; and you ought to have heard
those men laugh. Thoro wcro six of
them Hitting around tho stove behind
"Ob, yes, my little maid" (above all
things I abhor to be called a llttlo
mtildl) one of thorn cried. "You can
buy thorn, If you've got money enough;
but I don't reckon our friend Jones
hero has got them for sale."
Then they all laughed again, and
.winked ut each other, (That's another
disgusting thing winks when you nsk
a perfectly civil question I Hut what
can you do? .Stand it, that's all.
There's audi a lot of things wo poor
women hnvo to standi) Then they
qqloted down and looked very sober
the kind of sober you know Is faced
with laughs In tho back and began
to tell mo what a divorce really was.
I can't remember them all, but I enn
somo of thorn. Of courso I undcrstniw
now that theso men wore trying to
bo smart, and wero talking for each
ojher, not for me. And I know It
then n llttlo. Wo know a lot moro
things sometimes than folks think wo
do. Well, as near us I cun remember
It was like this:
"A divorce Is a Unifo that cuts a
knot that hadn't ought to over been
tied," said one.
"A divorce Is u Jump in tho dark,"
"No, it ain't It's a Jump from tho
frying pan Into tho fire," piped up Mr.
"A Ulvorco Is tho comedy of tho rich
And tho tragedy of tho poor," said n
llttlo mun who wore glasses.
"Divorce is a nice smushy poultlco
that may bolp but won't heal," cut In
a now voice.
"Dlvorco Is" n guldopost marked,
'Ilr-Unnouven.'JiUt lotjtof folks mis
tlie way, Just the mime, I notice,"
spoke up somebody with a chucklo.
"Divorce le a coward's retreat from
the lmttfe of life." Captain Harris said
this. He spoke slow and decided. Cap
tain Harris Is old and rich, and not
mnrrled. He's the hotel's star bourder,
ftnd what he says, goes, 'most alwayB.
Hut It didn't this time. I can remem
ber Just how old Mr. Carlton snupped
out the next.
"Speak from your own experience,
Tom Harris, ah' I'm thlnkln' you ain't,
fit ter Judge. I tell you divorce Is
whut three fourths of the husbands an' .
wives In the world wish was wnltln'
for 'em at home this very night. Hut
It ain't there." I knew, of course, ho !
was thinking of his wife. She's some
cross, I 'guess, and has two warts on
There was more, quite a lot more,
said. Hut I've forgotten the rest. Ho
sldes, they weren't talking to me then,
anyway. So I picked up my thread
and slipped out of the store, glad to
escape. Hut, as I said before. I didn't
find ninny like them.
Of course I know now what divorce
Is. I mean. And It's all settled. They
granted us some kind of a decree or
degree, and we're going to Hoston next
It's been awful, though this last
year. First we had to go to that hor
rid place out west, and stay ages und
uges. And I hated It. Mother did, too.
I know sho did. I wont to school, and
there woroqulte a lot of girls my age,
and some boys; but I didn't care much
for them. I couldn't even have the fun
of surprising them with the divorce we
were going to have. I found they were
going to have one, too every last one
of them. And when everybody has a
thing, you know there's no particular
fun In having It yourself. Besides,
they were very unkind and disagree
able, and bragged a lot about their
divorces. They said mine was tame,
and had no sort of snap to It, when
they found Mother didn't have a lover
waiting In the next town, or Father
hadn't run off with his stenographer,
or nobody bad shot anybody, or any
thing. That made me mad, and 1 let them
W It, good and plain. I told them our
divorce was perfectly all right and
genteel and respectable; that Nurse
Sarah said It was. Ours was going to
bo Incompatibility, for one thing,
which meant that you got on each
other's nerves, und Just naturally
didn't cure for each other" any more.
Hut they only laughed," and said even
more disagreeable things, so that I
didn't want to go to school any longer,
and I told Mother so, imd the reason,
too, of course.
Hut, dear me, I wished right off that
I hadn't. I supposed she was going to
be superb and haughty and disdainful;
and say things that would put those
girls where they belonged. Hut, my
stars I How could I know that she
was going to burst Into such a storm
of sobs and clasp me to her bosom, und
get my face all wet and cry out: "Oh,
my baby, my baby to think I have sub
jected you to this, my baby, my baby I"
And I couldn't, say a thing to com
fort her. or make her stop, even when
I told her over and over again that I
wasn't a baby. I was almost a young
lady; and I wasn't being subjected to
anything bad. I liked It only I didn't
like to have those girls bihg so, when
our dlvorco wns away ahead of theirs,
Hut she only cried more and more,
nnd hold me tighter and tighter, rock
ing back and forth In her chair. She
took me out of school, though, and had
a lady como to teach me all by myself,
so I didn't have to hear those girls
bmg uny more, niiyway. That was
better. Hut she Wasn't any happier
herself. I could see that.
There wcro lots of other ladles there
beautiful ladles only she didn't
seem to lllto them any better than I
did tho girls. I wondered If maybe
they bragged, too, and I asked her;
but sho only begnn to cry ngnln, and
monn, "What have I done, what havo
I dono?" and I hnd to try all over
again to comfort her. Hut I couldn't.
She got so she Just .stayed In her
room lots und lots. I tried to make,
her put on her pretty clothes, and do
as tho other ladles did, nnd go out and
wnlk and sit on tho big piazzas, and
dan :e, and eat at' tho pretty little
tables. Sho did, some, when we first
came, nnd took me, and I Just loved
It. Thoy wero such beautiful ladles,
with their bright eyes, and their red
cheeks und Jolly ways; and their
dresses wero so perfectly lovely, nil
silks and satins and spurkly spangles,
nnd diamonds and rubles and emer
alds, nnd silk stockings, nnd little bits
of gjold nnd silver slippers.
And once I snw two of them smok
ing. They hnd tho cutest llttlo ciga
rettes (Mother said they wero) In gold
holders, und I know then that I was
seeing life real llfo; not the stupid
kind? you get bnck In a country town
like Andcrsonvllle. And 1 said so to
Mother; nnd I was going to nsk her
if Hoston wns like that. Hut I didn't
get the chance. Sho Jumped up so
quick I thought something had hur
hor, and cried, "Good Heavens, Haby I"
(How I hato to bo cnlletl "Haby" I)
Then sho Just threw somo money on
to the tahlo to pay the bill nnd hurried
It was after that that sho began to
stuy In her room so much, and not
tnkc mo anywhere except for walks
nt the other end of tho town whero
it was nil quiet and stupid, and no
I music or lights or anything. And
though 1 toasted nnd teased to go back
to tho pretty, Jolly places, sho wouldn't
ever tnko mo; not once.
Then by nnd by, one day we met a
llttlo hluck-lmlrod woman with white
cheuks und very big sml eyots. Thuro
weren't any spangly dreMtfo and gold
sllpjpe'mi about hw, 1 can tell yott 1 She
wnS crying on 11 bench in tiie park,
nnd Mother told me to stay bnck nnd ;
watch tho swrins while sho went up
ami jqwkc to her. (Why do old folks
always mnko us watch swans or rend
books or look into store windows or 1
run and piny nil the time? Don't they
suppose we understand perfectly well
what It meuus that they're going to
say something they don't want us to
hear?) Well, Mother and the lndy on ,
tho bench talked and talked ever so
long, and then Mother called me up,
and the lndy cried n little over me,
nnd snld, "Now, pcrhnps, If I'd had a
little girl like that 1" Then she
stopped nnd cried some moro.
We snw this lady real often after
that. She was nice and pretty nnd
sweet, nnd 1 liked her; but she wns
nlwnys nwfully snd, nnd I don't believe
It wns linlf so good for Mother to bo
with her as It would hnvo been for her
to he with those Jolly, laughing ladles
that were always huvlng such good
times. Hut I couldn't make Mother
see It thnt wny nt nil. There nrc
times when It seems as If mother Just
couldn't sec things the wny I do. Hon
estly, It seems sometimes almost ns If .
she was tho cross-current and contra-1
diction Instcnd nt me It does. I
Well, as I snld before, I didn't like '
It very well out there, und I don't be- '
lleve Mother did, either. Hut it's all
over now, nnd we're bnck home pack
ing up to go to Hoston. j
Everything seems awfully queer.
Muybe becuuse Father Isn't here, for
one thing. Ho wrote very polite und
nsked us to come to get our things,
and he said ho was going to New York .
on business for several days, so Mother
need not fear lie should annoy hor
with his presence. Then, another
tiling, Mother's queer. This morning
she was singing away at the top of her
voice and running ull over tho house
picking up things sho wanted; and
seemed so happy. Hut this afternoon
I found her down on tho lloor In the
library crying ns If her heurt would
break, with her head In Father's big
chair before tho fireplace. Hut sho
Jumped up the minute I came In nnd
snld, no, no, she didn't want anything.
She was Just tired; that's all. And
when I nsked her If she wns sorry,
nfter ull, that she was going to Hoston
to live, she snld, no, no, no, Indeed,
she guessed she wasn't. She was Just
a glad as glad could be that she was
"going only sho wished Monday would
hurry up and come so we could bo
And that's all. It's a Saturday now,
and we go Just day after tomorrow.
Our trunks are 'most packed, and
Mother says she wishes she'd planned
to go today. I've said good-byo to ull
the girls, und promised to write loads
of letters about Hoston nnd every
thing. Thoy nre almost as excited us
I am ; nnd I've promised, "cross my
heart and hope to die," that I won't
love those Hoston girls better than I
do them specially Carrie Iloywood,
of course, my dearest friend.
Nurse Sarah Is hovering around
everywhere, asking to help, and pre
tending she's sorry we're going. Hut
she Isn't sorry. She's glad. 1 know
she Is. Sho never did appreciate
Mother, and sho thinks she'll have ev
erything her own way now. Hut she
won't. I could tell her a thing or two
If I wanted to. Hut I shan't.
Father's sister, Aunt Jane Anderson,
from St. Paul, Is coming to keep house
for him, partly on account of Father,
nnd partly on. account of me. "If that
child Is going to he with her father
six mouths of the time, she's got to
havo some woman there beside u med
dling old nurse and a nosey servant
girl 1" They didn't know I heard that.
Hut I did. And now Aunt Juno Is com
ing. Myt how mad Nurse Surah would
be If. sho know. Hut she doesn't.
I guess I'll end this chapter here
und begin a fresh one down In Hoston.
Oh, I do so wonder what It'll bo like
Hoston, Mother's home, Grandpa Des
mond, and fill the rest. I'm so excited
I can hardly wait. You see, Mother
never took mo homo with her but once,
nnd then T was n very small child. I
don't know why, but I guess Father
didn't wnnt mo to go. It's safe to say
he didn't, anyway. lie never wants
mo to do anything, hardly. That's why
I suspect him of not wanting mo to go
down to Grnndpa Desmond's. And
Mother didn't go only once, In ages.
Now this will bo the end. And when
I begin ngnln it will bo In Boston.
Only think of It renlly, truly Boston t
