of Molly
Copyright. 1912, by the
Merrill Company
"Say, Molly,"li'uk at the snaVe l
L'runged you:" he exclaimed as he came
close under the sill, which is not high
from the ground. '"If you rut your
face clown to the mud and sin? some
thin? to 'em they'll come outcn they

couldn't ketch eiu both. Lift ine up.
and I can put hiui in the water class
on your table." lie held up one muddy
paddie to inc. and promptly I lifted
liiru up into my arms. From the cm
brnco iu -which le and the worm and
I Indulged my lace and dimity came
out much the worse.
"That was a lovely sons you sans
aUuit 'Molly, darling,' Hilly' I said.
Where did you hear it?''
That's a good hug son?, Molly, and
I bet I can git a lizard with it. too, if I
Fiujr it right low." He began to
p julrm out of my arms toward the ta
ble and the glass.
"Who taught it to you, sugar sweet?"
I persisted as I poured water in on the
S'iu inning w orm under his direction.
"Nobody taught it to me. Doc sings
it to me when Tilly, nurse ror you
ain't there to put me to bed. He don't
know no gojd songs like 'IIol!, Jordan,
UoU: or 'Hot Times' or 'Twinkle.' I
F to sleep quick 'cause he makes me
feel tired with his slow tune what's
only good for bugs. Git a hairpin for
tne to poke him with, Molly, quick!"
I found the hairpin, and I don't know
why my hand trembled as I handed it
to Hilly. As soon as he got it he
climbed out the window, glass, bug
and all, and I saw him and the red set
ter go down the garden walk together
In pursuit of the desired lizard. 1 sup
pose. I cIosedtbeXfinsai7d drew the
curtains agaiu and flung myself oa my
pillow. Something warm and sweet
teemed to be sweeping over me in
great waves, and I felt young and
el".se up to some sort of big world
gooiL It was delicious, and I don't
know how'lm.ig I -would have stayed
there just feeling it if Judy hadn't
brought ia my letter.
He had written from London, it
was many pages of wonderful thiugs
all flavored with me. He told me about
Miss Chester and what good friends
they were and how much Le hoped
she would be in Hillsboro when he got
here. He said that a great many of her
uniuty ways reminded Lini of his
"own slip of a girl," especially the turn
of her head like a "flower on its stem."
At that I got right out of bed like a
jack jumping out of a box. and looked
at myself in the mirror.
There is one exercise here on page
twenty that I hate worst of all. You
stcw up your face tight until you look
like a Christmas mask to get your
iieck muscles taut and then wobble
your head around like a newborn baby
uuiil it swims. I did that one twenty
extra times and all the others in pro
pcrtion to make up for those two hours
in bed. Hereafter I'll gt up at the
time directed on page three or maybe
earlier. It frightens mc to think that
I've got only a few weeks more to turn
from a cabbage rose into a lily. 1
won't let myself even think "luscious
peach" and "string bean." If I do I
get warm and happy all over and let
up on myself. I try when I get hun
gry to think of myself in that blue
muslin dress.
I haven't been really willing lefore to
write down in this torture -volume that
I took that garment to the city with
ine and what Mine. Kene did to it

ever saw, ouly I wouldn't let her alter

M-t ioed iT't to and worked a miracle on
it with ribbon and lace. I've put It
:r.ay on the top shelf of a closet, for
it is torment to look at it
You can just take any old recipe for
a party and mix up a debut for a girl,
but it takes more time to concoct one
for a widow, especially if it is for
yourself. I j-i.'i.'t all the rest of the
day doing ahuost nothing nnd thinking
until I felt lightheaded. Finally I had
just about givcu up any idea of a blaze
and had dceidrvl to leak out in general
society as quietly as my clothes would
let ine when a real conflagration was
lighted inside me.
If Tom I'oIIard wasn't my own frst
cousin I would have loved him desper
ately even if I am a week older than
he. He was about the only oasis In
my marriage mirage, though 1 don't
thii.k anybody would think of calling
linn at all green. He never stopped
coming to .see rnc occasionally, and Mr.
pittc Uked fcjiu. He wag the. firs,t
hum to notice the white ruche I sewed
ri the' neck of my old black taffeta four

ND when that conflagration wag
lighted in me, Tom did it. I
was sitting peaceably on my
front steps, dressed in the sum
mer before last that Judy washes and
irons everv day while I'm deciding how
to hand out the first sip of my trous
scan to the neighbors, when Tom, in a
dangerous blue striked shirt, with a
tie that melted into it in tone, blew
over my hedge and landed at my side.
He kissed the lace ruflle on my sleeve
while I reproved him severely and set
tied down to enjoy him. v But I didn't
have such an awfully good time as I
generally do with him. He was too
full of another woman, and even a first
cousin can be an exasperation in that
"Now, Mrs. Molly, truly, did you ever
see such a peach as she is?" he de
manded after I had expressed more
than a dozen delighted opinions of
Miss Chester. His use of the word
"peach" riled me and before I stopped
to think I said, "She reminds me more
of a string bean."
"Now, Molly, don't be mean just be
cr.use old Wade has got l.r out driv
ing behind the grays after kissing your
hind under the lilacs yesterday, which,
praise be, nobody saw but little me!
I'm not yore; why should you be?
Aren't you happy w ith me?"
I withered him with a look, or, rath
er tried to wither him, for Tom is no
mimosa bud. -
"The way that girl has started in to
wake up this Ijttle old town reminds
me of the feeling you get under your
belt seven minutes- after you've sipped
an absinth frappe for the first time
you are liable- for a good jag and don't
know it," he continued enthusiastical
ly. "Let's don't let the folks know
that they are off until I get everybody
in a foil : swing of buzz over my
queea." I, had never seen Tom so en
thusiastic "over a girl before, and 1
dida't "like it But I decided not to let
him ksiow that, but to get to work put
ting out the Chester blaze in him and
starting one on my own account
"That's just what I'm thinking about,
Tom' I said with a smile that was as
,"You are tempting Providence, Molly
sweet as I could make it, "and as she
came with messages to me from one
of my best old friends I think I ought
to do something to make her have a
good time. I was just planning a gor
geous dinner party I want to have for
her when you came so suddenly. Do
jou think w e could arrange it for Tues
day evening?"
"Lord love us, Molly! Don't knock
the town down like that Let 'em
have more than a week to get used to
this white rag of a dress you've been
waving in their faces for the last few
days. Go slow"
"I've been going so slow for so many
years that I've turned around and I'm
going fast backward, I said with a
b'uish that I couldn't help.
"Help! Let my Lirrrhip protect mc!"
exclaimed Tom in alarm, and he pre
tended to move an luch away from mc.
Yes," I said slowly, and as I looked
out of the corner of my eyes from un
der the lashes that Tom himself had
once told ine wsra "too long and black
to be tidy" I saw that he was in a
condition to got the full shock. "If
anybody wakes up this town it will bo

with a high head.

I let hlz2 snuggle up just one cousinly
second.. Then we both laughed and

enough to call the resurrection razoo.

but I think It is best for you to keep
them blissfully unconscious until you
get what you want. Anyway, I like
that girl all over,' and I cau't see that
.her neck is so absolutely impossibly
, flowery. However, '.I think she nught
hare been a little more considerate
about discussing Alfred's London tri

punishment I let Tom put his arm

Away like a puppy the first time your
back was turned.', - Besides being your
eousin, he's yotrngcr than you. What
do you mean??
''He's just ! a week younger, Mrs.
Johnson, and ( wouldn't tie him for
world!?, even if I married him," 1 said
meekly. Somehow I like Mrs. Johnson
enough to bd meek with her and it
always UrfafgS.her to a higher point of
excitement.' ' : .
"Tle nonsense; marrying is roping
in witk'ball and chain, to my mind.
And a,! Week between a man and a
woman jn their cradles gets to be fif
teen years between them and their
graves.' ' I'm going to make you the
subject of a silent prayer at the next
Qlifaiahary meeting, and I must go
borue now to see tha't Sally cooks up
tj.;,few of Mr. Johnson's crotchets for
tJiipper." And she began to hurry
i "I don't believe you'll be able to
make it a 'silent' session about me,
Mrs. Johnson." I called after her, and
she laughed back from her own front
gate. Marriage is the only worm in
the bud of Mrs. Johnson's life, and her
laugh has a snap to it even if it is not
very sugary sweet.
When I told Judy about the dinner
party and asked her to get the yellow
barber to come help her and her neph
ew wait on the table she grinned such
a wide grin that I was afraid of being
swallowed. She understood that Aunt
Adeline wouldn't be interested iu it un
til I had time to tell her all alout It
Anyway, she will be going over to
Springfield on a pilgrimage to see Mr.
Henderson's sister next week. She
doesn't know it yet. but I do.
After that I spent all the rest of the
evening in planning my dinner party,
and I had a most royal good time. I
always have had lots of company, but
mostly the spend the day kind with
relatives or more relatives to supper.
That's what most entertaining In 11211s
boro is like: but as I say. onca in
awhile the old slow pacer wakes up.
1 11 never forget my first real uiuner
party. a3 the flower girl fcr Caroline

from nowhere and gripped me by the
throat, gnawed me all over like a bone.
then shook me until I was limp and un

self down to the pantry, for when I
became conscious I found myself in
company with a lonf of bread, a plate
ofjbutter and a huc jar of jam.

Never has a play been more
obviously a character study, with

of "Mrs. Wiggs."' but it is sur
prising how smoothly it leads
from one phase to another, and
how interesting even the most
commonplace incidents become
with Mrs. Alice Hogan Hire's halo
of appreciable understanding

(humor is of the best ami highest,

more ridiculous than in the pre

is all that i- needed to send the
audience into uncontrollable
laughter. She jeeals new comic
possibilities in spin-lerliood and
