around the neat attic. ‘‘Maybe

‘‘Are you sure Aunt Ada has s
“Yes, at least Nyra Leonard
thinks she has. Nyra says that be
cause there was a ‘bizarre’ incident
connected with her once using the
tambourine, she doesn’t like to ask
for it again. I wonder what that
‘bizarre’ incident can be, Dolly?”
Dolly led the way downstairs. "I
never heard Aunt mention anything
extraordinary,” she replied.
"Since I may not see your Aunt
tonight, I will leave her a note,”
Rosabel concluded, seating hersell
at Ada's desk.
"Aunt Ada is making me a rain
bow voile dress,” Dolly chatted, dis
playing a novelty. "Put your note on
her sewing table.”
Whereupon the girls went out,
leaving the house alone.
Ada returned ns her parlor clock
was chiming five. She began to pre
pare the supper for herself and her
niece; then, having to wait, she went
to the sewing table. Discovering
Rosabel’s note, she read:
"Dear Miss Ada—Nyra Leonard is
to be a Sicilian dancer at the garden
party. I can assist in the dance if I
can get a tambourine. If you have
one, please may I take it?
"She wants Nyra’s tambourine,”
Ada reflected. "Good land, I thought
I had that bygone atlair buried for
In spite of an effort to think of tho
supper of sliced hamburg loaf,
homemade bread, pancakes, and
iced tea, and of the beautifully tint
ed rainbow dress which she was
sewing, Ada now only could hear
Nyra’s tambourine jingling persist
ently in her ears. Years ago Ada's
Uncle Joe, a sea-captain, had
brought the wonderful tambourine,
with its silvery bells, from Italy.
Because Nyra had had the instru
ment so much in her possession,
Ada associated the dancer’s name
with it. Again Ada vividly saw the
tambourine in the pretty hands of
the rav’en-haired, dazzling Nyra
King, who always, since girlhood,
had been a beautiful, wild butterfly.
"She was only a flapper who
learned the use of her wings 10
years ahead of the times," Ada
observed, trying to be considerate.
"And maybe Dolly’ll learn to be a
flapper, too, in this gay-colored
gown. I don’t want Dolly to be the
plain, old-fashioned girl I was; I
want her cute and lively and able
to hold her own with any of ’em;
but I want her good, too.
"Maybe I've set too high an ideal
for Dolly, expecting her to have
the strong points Nyra and I both
had, and be beautiful both within
But Ada’s practical contemplation
came to a shadowy end; in medita
tion. her thoughts were lured back
ward, backward by the silvery jin
gle of Nyra’s tambourine. Again it
was Field Day; Ada was roving the
encampment with John Leonard,
her fiance. They came at last to
the brightly decorated fortune tell
ers’ booth, where Nyra King, in an
j Italian peasant costume, sang and
danced as she skillfully droned in a
"Isn’t she cute?" John comment
ed, watching the movements of the
winsome entertainer. Although Ada
declared that they had best move
on, John lingered and lingered.
Ada smiled as she remembered
how willing John was to see her
home early in order that he might
return to the field and seek Nyra.
No one might have known of this
clandestine meeting had not John’s
car turned turtle late that night.
Because the car was wrecked, al
though its occupants, John and
Nyra, were picked up unhurt, but
sadly stupefied, folks shook their
heads suspiciously. '
Nyra courteously returned tha
tambourine and Ada graciously re
ceived it; but Nyra never borrowed
it again. The episode ended when
Ada returned John his ring.
Nyra became the butterfly wife of
John. She frisked the years away,
her cottage always being in a state
of untidiness. It was in order to
deepen the contrast between her
self and Nyra that Ada kept her
house so scrupulously clean.
"She aroused a fire in John
which I could never have awakened,
that vital flame which alone make*
married life worth while," Ada med
; itated. Then, laying aside her sew
ing, she mechanically went up two
