from behind the curtains cn Ler way

She was fully

"To the dau-e?" repeated Ethel in

could not ri.l herself of the feeling that
Peg was there to watch her.
"To the dance?' she asked again.
"Yes. .Mr. Jerry took me."
"Jerry tx;k you?"
"Yer mother wouldn't let me go. So
Jerry came I aek for me when ye were

"I shall. You had no right to go."
"Why are ye so hard cn me, Ethel?"
"Decanse I detest yon."
"I'm sorry." said Peg simply. "Ye've

Poor I'eg turned away from Ethel
and began to climb the stairs. When
