Oynoplt--Hcr father and mother reported lost at sea when the
Dunraven, en which they hnd sailed for Europe, wns sunk, Carolyn
May Cameron Henna's Car'lyn 1b m-nt from New York to her bach
elor aade, Joxoph Siagg. at the Corners. Tho reception Riven her by
her uncle la not Tory enthusiastic. Carolyn Is nlno chlllod by the Htem
demeanor of Aunty Hone, Undo Joe's housekeeper. Stngg Is dismayed
when he- learns from a lawyer friend of hla brother-in-law that Carolyn

Carolyn learns of the estrangement between her uncle and his one-tline
sweetheart, Amanda Parlow, and the causo of the bitterness between

Unci Joe, who threatens to dispone of him, but Prince becomes u hero
and wis tha approval of tho Corners by routing a tramp In tho act of
robbing tho schoolteacher.
1 A tanaay Walk.
Bcally If Prlnca had been a Tain
Iflog hla ego would cartalnly have be
sonte unduly developed because of this
feaddeat Tha Corners, as a commu
wits, voted him an acquisition, whereas
pantofore he had been looked upon as
a. goad deal of a nuisance.
After aha recovered front her fright
IOm Mlaato walked home with Caro
Bya May and allowed Prince's delight
lad Utile mistress to encourage the
htaro to "ahahe hands with teacher."
I "Now, yon see, ha's acquainted with
grou, MLse Minnie," said Carolyn May.
'"He's an awful nice dog. Ton didn't
Jfcaow Just how nice he was before."
Almaat everybody went to church
)aad all the children to Snnday school,
(which was held first
( The Iter. Afton Driggs, though serf-teus-mtnded,
was a loving man. Ho
was fond of children and he and his
ahfliTlnin wife gave much of their at
Itaatloa to the Sunday achool. Mrs.
lIMtgs taught Carolyn May's class of
(tttflo girls. Mrs. Drlggs did her very
past too, to get the children to stay
Ma the preaching service, but Carolyn
way had to confess that the pastor's
idtseonxaes were usually hard to under-iataad.
"And he Is always reading about the
ita." she complained gently to
Jo as they went home together
this particular Sunday, "and I

smothering a desire to laugh. "Flow
pently, aweet Afton, doea select bis
passages of Scrlpturo mostly from tho
Sralley ef dry bones,' I allow. You've
got It about right there, Carolyn May."
"Uncle Joe," said the little girl, tnk-
tag her courage In both hands, "will
CH de something for me?" Then, as
i stared down at her from under his
bushy hrews, she added : "I don't mean
that yea araa't always doing some
thing for me letting me sleop here at
Ear house and eat with you and all
L But something special."
"What la the 'something special?'"
stead Mr. Stagg cautiously.
"Something I want you to do to-
- fay. Toa always go off to your store
after dinner and whan you coma nome
ttti toe dark."
"Toe dark for whatT

Mttle girl very earnestly. "Oh, Undo
See, you dont know how dreadful I

papa! Of course we took 'cm In the
saornlng, for he had to go to work
Ian the paper In the afternoon, but we
did Just about go everywhere. If you
.would go with me," the little girl
added wistfully, "just this afternoon,
seems to me I wouldn't feel so so
"Huaopal" aald Uncle Joe, dealing
his throat "If lfs going to do you
any particular good, Car'lyn May, I
aapposa X can take a walk with you."
It waa a crisp day one of those au
tama days whea tha tang of frost re
gattas In tha air, in spite of all the
aftorta of tha turn to warm It
Here and there they stopped to pick
the glossy brow chestnuts that
karat from their burrs. That Is,
lya May aad her undo did. Prince,
(after a atngle attempt to nose one of
jsha prickly barn, left them strictly
Uttlo girl and tho mnn, becoming really
good comrades on this walk, met with
an adventure. At least to Carolyn
May it was n real adventure and ono
she was not to forgot for a lone, long
Prince suddenly 'bounded nway,
barking, down a pleasant glade,
through tho bottom of which flowed a
brook. Carolyn Mny caught a glimpse
of something brown moving down
there and ahe called shrilly to the dog
to come back.
"But that's somebody, Uncle Joe,"
Carolyn May said with assurance, as
the dog slowly returned. "Prince
never barks like that unless It's a per
son. And I saw something move."
"Somebody taking a walk, like us.
Couldn't be a deer," said Mr. Stagg.
"Oh," cried Carolyn May later, ( "I
see It again. That's a skirt I see.
Why, It's a lady!"
Mr, Stagg suddenly grew very stern
looking, as woll as silent. All the
beauty of tho day and of the glade
they hnd entered seemed lost on him.
He went on stubbornly, yet as though
loath ato proceed.
"Why," murmured Carolyn May, "It's

It was colled right nt Miss Amandn'n
back. She did not see it for she waa

turned from Mr. Stagg as he had been
determined to Ignore her presence.
Carolyn May was shaking and help
lens. Not so Prince. Ho repeated his
challenging growl and then sprang
nt the vibrating head. Miss Amanda
uttered a Btifled scream and Jumped
up from tho log, whirling to see what
was happening behind her.
Joseph Stagg dropped Carolyn May's
hand and leaped forward with his
walking stick raised to strike. But
tho mongrel dog was there first IIo
wisely caught tho blacksnnke behind
tho bend, his strong, sharp teeth sev
ering Its vertebrae.
"Good dogl" shouted Mr. Stagg ex
citedly. "Fluo dog I"
"Oh, Miss Amanda I" shrieked Caro
lyn May. "I I thought ho was going
to sting you I did l"
She ran to tho startled woronn and
clung to hor hand. Prince nosed tho
doad Bnake. Mr. Stagg looked exceed
ingly foolish. Miss Amauda recovered
her color and hervolco simultaneously. I
"What a brave dog yours Is, Uttlo
girl," she said to Carolyn May. "And
I do ao despise snakes 1" Then she
looked directly at Mr. Stagg and
bowed gravely. "I thank you," sho
said, but so coldly, so Carolyn Mny
thought, that her voice might havo
come "just off an Iceberg."
"Oh, I didn't do anything really I
didn't" stammered the man. "It was
Both looked very uncomfortable.
Joseph Stagg began to pick up tho
scattered chestnuts from tho over
turned basket The lady stooped and
whispered to Carolyn Mny:
"Come to see me, my dear. I want
to know you better."
Then she kissed Carolyn May and
slipped quietly away from the brook,
disappearing quickly In the under
growth. Joseph Stagg and tho little girl
went on across the stepping stones,
while Prince splashed through tho
water. Carolyn May was thinking
about Miss Amanda Parlow and sho
helloved her Uncle Joe was, too.
"Undo Joo," she said, "would that ,
bad old snake have stung Miss
"Huh? No ; I reckon not" admitted
Mr. Stagg absent-mindedly. "Black-1
snakes don't bite. A big one like that I
can squeeze some." J
"But you wore scared of It llko me ,
and Prince. And for Miss Amanda,"
snld Carolyn May very much In ear-1
"I guess 'most everybody In scared I
by tho sight of a snake, Car'lyn Mny." I
"But you wero scared for Miss i
Amanda's sake Just the samo as 1 1
was," repeated tho little girl decidedly. I
"Well?" he growled, looking away, '
troubled by her lnststonce.
"Then you don't hate her, do you?"
the child pursued. Tm glad of that
Uncle Joe, for I like her rery much.
I think she's a beautiful lady."
To this Undo Joe said nothing,
"I guess," thought Carolyn May
wisely, "that when two folks love each

"Bless mo, what these kids will do I"
Jaatterod Mr. Stagg.
It was Just at that moment that the
lady with the pretty roses In her
cheeks Bat on a log by the brook, her
faco turned from the path Joseph
Stagg and his little niece were coming
And Undo Joe was quite stubborn.
Ho stared straight ahead down the
path without lotting the figure on the
log get into the focus of his vision.
Hanging to Uncle Joo's hand but
looking longingly at the silent figure
on the log, Carolyn May was going
down to the stepping stones by which
they were to cross the brook, when
suddenly Prince came to a halt right
at the upper end of the log and hla
"What Is It, Prlncer whispered his
little mistress, "Come here."
But the dog did not move. He even
growjed not at Miss Amanda, of
course, but at somothlng on the log.
And It was Just then that Carolyn
May wanted to scream and she could
For there on the log, raising Its flat,
wicked head out of an aperture, waa
a snake, a horrid, silent writhing
crcaturo, tho look of which held the
little girl horror-stricken and speech
less. Uncle Joo glnnced down impatiently,
to eco what mada her hold back so.
The child's fcot seemed glued to tho
earth. Sho could not tako another

Mr. Stagg went heavily Into his own
room, closed the door and even locked
It. He went over to tho old-fashioned
walnut bureau that stood against the
wall between the two windows and
stood beforo it for some moments In
an attitude of deep reflection. Finally,
ho drcTT his bunch of koys from his
pocket and opened one of tho two
small drawers In the heavy piece of
furniture the only locked drawer !
there was. He drew forth a tintype
picture, faded now, but clear enough
to show him the features of the two

He held the tintype for a long, long
time In his hand, gazing on it with
eyes that saw the vanished years
rather than the portraits themselves.
Finally he hid the picture away again,
closod and locked the drawer with a

outstrips that In available pelts. Even
n theso times women do not regard
the finest furs as a luxury and do not
intlclpnte thnt their prloo will be low
ered after the war. Furriers sell
readily all the skins they havo bought
nd mndo up and wish there were
more of them.
In selecting gnnnents ninde of ex
pcnulve skins It Is best to pick out
tho most conservntlvo designs offered
by dealers so thnt tho stylo will be
good from year to year. Fine furs,
like Jewels, do not need to change with
the changing modes, If they do not
belong too palpably to ono season. Tho
long, graceful and very beautiful cape
shown In tho Illustration Is tho sort
of garment thnt mny bo worn year In
and year out. It hns n yoke In which
the skins run horieontnlly, Joined to a
bodv with skins In which tho dnrk.
markings run up and down. There are
slashes in each Bide through which the
arms slip when the cape is fastened
up the front This Is a mngnlflcent
cape made of sable or mink It Is a
trennure to outlast a lifetime and Is
to be cared for as befits Its character.
Small capes or scarfs, with muffs to
match, in the best furs, lend an air of
elegance to the costume thnt will al
ways bo a satisfaction to their wear
ers. A little neckpiece of ermine caBts
a luster of splendor about It. It Is the
power of suggestion more than their
warmth that raakw rich furs desirable
In the eyes of women to whom Tenny
son n satires us pplendor Is dear.
There are certain beautiful but
short-lived fnrs that are for those
whoso resources mako generous allow
ances for dress, without Interfering
with expenditures for evfn more es
sential things. Nearly all furs If well
enrod for will outlast many sensons
anil prove n good investment Some
of them wear for years; as marten
and mink, sable, Persian lamb, otter
and others; theso are a good Invest-
son nro Mioit lived or "Roft" furs.
Mole skin Is most beautlftd, but as
compared to mink or senlskln for In
stance, It Is fragile. Thnt does not
stand In tho way of Its pnpuUrlty, es
pecially In small gnnnents, with worn
oil of fashion, to whom durability Is a
secondary consideration. A vory love
ly and luxurious coat of molo skin Is
shown above. When one thinks of the
number of ny skins thnt must be

Egyptian In Effect
The Egyptian Is said to b the dom

of ornamentation have their use In
certain plaeoB, but as In the case of

clever hand when the pattern Is of de

by an expert- the average woman
would do well to be satisfied with an
odd piece done in these extreme novel
