"Well, Carolyn May, If you've- fin

"Yes, Aunty Rose," Bald tho little
girl In mudled voice.
Aunty Rose did not notice that Caro

the sitting room to bid cither Uncle
Joo or Miss Amanda good-night. The
child followed the woman upstairs with
faltering steps, and In the unllghtcd
bedroom Hint had been Hnnnnh Stagg's
he knelt at Aunty Rose's kneo and
murmured her usual petitions.
"Do bless Undo Joo and Miss
Amanda, now they're so happy," wus
a phrase that might havo thrilled
Aunty Rose at another time. But sho
was so deep In her own thoughts that
sho heard what Carolyn Mny said per
functorily. With her customary kiss, she left
the little girl nnd went downstairs.
Carolyn Mny had Been so much excite

have been expected to sleep at once,
and thnt soundly. But It was not bo.
Thel little girl lny with wide-open

"Two's compnny, three's u crowd."
Sho took that trite Baying, In which
Aunty Rose had expressed her own
feelings, to herself. If Uncle Joe and
Miss Amnnda were going to bo mar
ried, they would not want anybody
else around I Of course not !
"And what will become of me?"
thought Carolyn Mny chokingly.
All tho "emptiness" of tho Inst few
months swept over tho soul of the lit
tlo child In a wavo thnt her natural
cheerfulness could not withstand. Her
nnchornge in tho love of Undo Joe
and Miss Amaudn wns swept away.
Tho heart of tho Httlo child swelled.
Her eyes overflowed. Sho sobbed her

It was certainly n fact that Amanda
Parlow Immediately usurped some
power In tho household of tho titagg
homestead. Sho ordered Joseph Stagg
cot to go down to his storo that next
day. And he did not!
Nor could ho attend to business for

"Why, maw says that Mr. Stagg nnd

"Oh, yes," sighed the Httlo glrL

"Well, when folks git married they

only for ench other.
Even n child could sec something of
this. The absorption of the two made
Aunty Bose'a remarks very Impressive
to Carolyn May.
A wool: of thin followed a week In
which tho trouhlo In Carolyn May's
heart nnd hmln seethed until It be
came unbearable. She was convinced
that there would soon be no room for
her In the big house. She watched
Aunty Rose mek her own trunk, and
the old lady looked very glum, Indeed.
Sho heard whispers of an Immcdlntu
marriage, here In the house, with Mr.
Drlggs as the ofllclatlng clergyman.
Carolyn May studied things out for
herself. Being a child, her conclu
sions were not always wlso ones.
She felt that she might be u stum
bling block to the complete happiness
of Undo Joo nnd Amnnda I'nrlow.
They might have to sot aside their own
desires because of her. She felt vague
ly that this must not be.
"I can go home," Bhc repented over
and over to herself.
"Ilcmo" wns still In the New York
city apartment house where she hnd
lived so happily before thnt day when
her father and mother hnd gone aboard
tho Ill-fated Dunrnvcn.
Their complete loss out of the little
girl's life hnd never become fixed In
her mind. It hnd never seemed a surety
not even after her talks with tho
sailor, Benjamin Hardy.
Friday afternoon tho little girl went
to tho churchyard nnd made neat the
thrco Httlo grnves and the ono long
onb on tho plot which belonged to
Aunty Rose Kennedy. Sho almost
burst Into tears that evening, too,
when sho kissed Aunty Roso good
night nt bedtime. Uncle Joo was down
nt tho Tarlows'. He and Mr. Pnrlow
actually smoked their pipes together
in harmony on the cottage porch.
Aunty Roso wns usually an early
riser; but tho first person up nt Tho

In It nnd she hud In the bag most of
her necessary possessions.
Sho wnshed her face and hands. Her
hair was already combed nnd neatly
braided. From tho pantry she secured
some bread nnd butter, and, with this
In her hand, unlocked the porch door
and went out. Prince got up, yawning,
and shook himself. Sho sat on tho
steps to cnt the bread and butter, di
viding It with Prince.
"This Is such a beautiful place,
Prlnccy," sho whispered to tho mon
grel. "Wo are going to miss It dread
fully, I s'pose. But then Well,
we'll hnvo tho park. Only you can't
run so free there."
Prlnco whined. Cnrolyn Mny got up
and shook tho crumbs from her lap.
Then sho unchained tho dog nnd
picked up her. bag. Prlnco pranced
about her, glad to get his morning run.
Tho Httlo girl nnd tho dog went
out of tho gato and Btnrted along tho
road townrd Sunrlso Covo.
Tho houses had nil been asleep nt
Tho Corners. So was tho Parlow cot
tago when ehe trudged by. Sho would
havo liked to see Miss Amnnda, to
kiss hor Just once. But sho must not
think of that! It brought sucn a
"gulpy" feeling Into her throat
Nobody saw Carolyn May and Prlnco
until Bho reached Main street Then
tho sun had risen and a few early per
sons were astir; but nobody appeared
who know tho child or who cared any
thing about her.
At tho railroad station nobody spoko
to her, -for Bho bought no ticket Sho
wns not exnetly clear In her mind
about tickets, anyway. Sho had found
the conductor on tho train coming up
from New York a kind and pleasnnt
mnn and she uecluod to uo all nor
business with him.
Had sho attempted to buy a ticket

lyn May, after Beelng Prince put Into I
tho bnggngo car, climbed aboard with ,
the help of n brnkeman.
"Of course. If he howls nwfuljy," ohe ,
told the baggageman, who gnvo her a '
check without question, "I shall have
to go in thnt car and sit with him." ,
There were not many people In the t
car. They steamed away from Sun- '
rise Cove and Carolyn Mny dabbled j
her eyes with her handkerchief utid i
told herself to be brave.
The stations wore a long way apart
and the conductor did not come
through for some time. Wlien he did '
open the door nnd come Into the cur .
Carolyn May started up with a glad
cry. It was the very conductor who
had been so kind to her on tho trip up
from New York. ,
Tho railroad mnn knew her nt onco
nnd shook hands most heartily with J
"Where nro you going, Carolyn
Mny?" ho asked.
"All the way with you, sir," she re
plied. "To New York?"
"Yes, sir. I'm going homo ngaln."
"Then I'll see you later," ho said,
without asking for her ticket.
The conductor remembered tho Httlo
girl very well, although ho did not
remember nil the details of her story.
Ho was very kind to her nnd brought
her satisfying news about Prince In
tho buggage car. Tho brnkemnn waa
nice, too, and brought her water to
drink In n pap.cr cup.
At last tho long stretches of streets
at right angles with tho trucks ap
peared asphalt streets lined with tall,
apartment houses. This could be noth
ing but New York city. Her papa had
told her long ago thnt thero was no
other city liko It In the world.
Sho knew Ono Hundred nnd Twenty-fifth
street and Its elevntcd station.
Thnt was not where sho hnd boarded
tho trnln going north, when Mr. PrIco j
hnd placed her In tho conductor's enre,
but It was nearer her old home thnt '
she know. So she told the brnkemnn j
sho wnnted to get out there nnd ho
arranged to hnvo Prlnco released.
The little girl alighted and got her
dog without misadventure. Sho wns I
down on tho street level before tho i
train continued on lts Journey down-
At tho Grnnd Central terminal tho
conductor was met with a telegram
sent from Sunrise Covo by n certain

The Home of Carolyn May.
It wns some distance from tho rail
road station to tho block on which
Carolyn May Cnmcron hnd lived nil
her life until sho hnd gone to stny
with Undo Joo Stngg. The child knew
she could not take tho car, for the con
ductor would not let Prince ride.
Sho started with tho dog on his
leash, for ho was not muzzled. Tho
bag became heavy very soon, but sho,
staggered along with It uncomplain
ingly. Her disheveled appearance, j
with the bag and the dog, gave pcoplo i
who noticed her tho impression that
Carolyn May had been away, perhaps, ,
for n "fresh-nlr" vacation, nnd was
now coming home, brown nnd weary, '
to her expectant family.
But Carolyn May know that sho was
coming homo to an empty apartment ,
to rooms thnt echoed with her moth- j
er's voice and In which lingered only
memories of her father's cheery spirit
Yet it was tho only home, Bho felt,
that wns left for her.
Sho could not blnmo Undo Joo nnd
Miss Amnnda for forgetting her.
Aunty Roso had been quite disturbed,
too, slnco tho forest fire. Sho hnd
given tho Httlo girl no hint that pro
vision would ho mndo for her future.
Wearily, Cnrolyn May traveled
through tho Harlem streets, shifting
the bag from hand to hand, Prlnco
pacing sedately by her side.
"Wo'ro getting near homo now, Trln
ccy," sho told him again and again.
Thus she tried to keep her heurt up.
Sho enmo to tho corner near which sho
had lived so long and Prlnco suddenly
sniffed nt tho screened door of a shop.
"Of course, poor fellow 1 That's tho
butcher's," Carolyn May said.
Sho bought o penny afternoon pa
per on a nows stand and then went
Into tho shop and got a nickel's worth
of bones nnd scraps for tho dog. The
clerk did not know her, for ho was
a new mnn.
