Nyra’s Tambourine Dy CLARA C. HOLMES © McClure Newspaper Syndicate. WNU Service. *«npRULY, I don’t know where it can be, Rosabel,” Dolly de clared, casting a puzzled look around the neat attic. ‘‘Maybe Aunt's catalogue will tell; see, ev erything that’s put away in trunks is set down in this book. T-t-tam bourine; it isn’t here, is it? And Aunt Ada’s at the missionary meet ing.” "I can use a tin pan at today’s rehearsal,” Rosabel answered. ‘‘Are you sure Aunt Ada has s tambourine?” “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? "Sincerely yours, "Rosabel Lamb.” "She wants Nyra’s tambourine,” Ada reflected. "Good land, I thought I had that bygone atlair buried for ever!” 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 and without.” 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 beribboned tambourine. "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 , flights of stairs, and methodically 1 looked at her catalogue. “N—Nyra’s tambourine, north end of attic, Uncle Joe’s chest, lower left - hand corner.” Directly she placed her hand upon the disturb ing memento. She paused a moment, thinking. “I’ll change it to the R’s, Rosa bel’s tambourine will be more sweetly suggestive,” she bravely soliloquized. Going downstairs, she began to stir the pancake batter vigorously and to fry the cakes.
