The Mae tree wus like n pigMirit,
tsihft 1th ilumcs in the &"Ct May
tttrd. Snin, up In the attic nnd deop
in Uip rites of house-cleaning', leaned
out of the Window to catch the lan
guorous odors tlwt drifted upwards
from Us bJossOtned lorellaen.
"Oh, Sara." reclaimed Mr. Hum
h -tii, when !bo gjUmfwed her daughter,
"1 u' ,ju-t l.pfl ft li-ttcv from Aunt Lou
I r, lour I'ourjn Unrlwni Is vry
1J1 run down und Is coming here
c i the suuiW. fo rend It."
ara Uofe the letkr and slowly rend
it was four o'clock when Snrn
Mtdiod ojfl Ted to thd oovewd puttxv
it l drove down the country road to
U station. To lief disappointment
ho did not see ,hcr cousin. Only
n solitary- littles girl standing beside
a huge blnok trunk was there.
"Oh, I wonder If you ro CouBln
Sum," tho little girl gasped, as slu
renchod tho buggy. Sara's astonished
eyes traveled from the knee-length
skirt to tho light hobhed hulr under
the violently colored hat. Then they
stopped at the powdered face, Inll
nltely old and weary.
"You don't mean that you're IJar
hnrn," she Rasped: "Why, I thought
you were n little girl."
Ilaibarn laughed easily. "I don't
suppose you know much about style up
here. I'm "dead tired, and what will
wo do with my trunk?" Suddenly
Sara's eyes brightened. Across tho
street a young man was Jubt stepping
from tho car.
"Oh, Joe," she called In her clear,
Joe came over Immediately.
"I'd like you to meet my cousin,
Rarbarn Cushman." Then she added,
"Joe, wo have n big trunk we can't
manage. I wonder If you could carry
It homo for us." As sho spoke sho
watched tho young man's face. It
wore the same expression of bewilder
ment she knew had been on her own.
They drove home rather slowly.
The weeks passed quickly enough
for Sara with nil her duties. Barbara
at first spent most of her time In the
hammock, writing letters or reading.
The fresh air, long, restful nights and
tho wholesome country food did won
ders for her, however. Not deeming
It worth while to dress for unappreel
atlve spectators, she left off the pow
. der and was delighted to find n soft,
pink HubIi uppearlng on her rounding
cheeks. Mark Sherman took the girls
to ride nnd was over n good many eve
nings. Sometimes Joe Curtis Joined
them on the piazza, making a four
some. At first Barbara told talcs of won
derful automobile rides and theater
parties, or stories of splendid dances
she had attended. But there always
appeared an atmosphere of restraint
among the others, who apparently did
not share her enthusiasm. One eve
ning she was unusually quiet. After
the two young men left she followed
Sura to her room and, sitting on the
ed?c of the bed, watched ihe latter
brush her long, soft hair. Suddenly
nnd very quietly she began to cry.
Sara went to her In an Instunt.
"Oh, Barbnru," she said, drawing
her cousin's head tenderly down on
her shouldor, "are you sick, dear?"
For a minute there was no nnswer.
Then Barnbum clutched Sara's hand
convulsively. "Sura," she sobbed, "I
have been such a fool. My hair wns
as long as yours, and now It's spoiled.
I've just made myself look like a
freak, trying to copy the others. Nona
of my friends in the city are real. I'll
never be happy again, never."
It was some time after this out
burst before Sara could quiet her. She
stroked the short, golden hair softly.
"You have not spoiled your looks at
nil, dear," she said, when Barbara
would listen. "Your hair Is very thick,'
and It has grown long since you came.
Ton have plenty to do In a soft, low
knot, and It will be so becoming, for
It Is curly. I wish mine wns."
Barbara raised her head. "Do you
really think so?" she asked. "And,
Sara, could you help me let down my
lavender organdy for the church sup
per? Joe thinks It' Is a lovely color."
She blushed as she added this.
The next day the girls were very
busy In preparation for the before
mentioned Buppcr. When they came
downstairs, ready at last, Mrs. Burn
ham gave a gasp of astonishment as
she saw Barbara. Then she went
over and kissed her on each rosy
It was rather Into l'n the evening,
nnd Mark and Sara were standing In
front of the church, waiting for Bar
barn, who had mysteriously disap
peared. Suddenly, from tho shadow
of the oUl elm, she came hurrying
toward them. She took Sara's baud
and drew her to olo side.
"Oh, Sara," she whispered, "would
you mind? Joe wants to take me home
la his car. He says I look like a renl
country violet, and I mustn't ever go
back to the city again."
With n happy kiss she was gone.
Mark looked ufter tho disappearing
pair gratefully. No long'er would he
be reminded of tho old udifge: "Two's
company, three's a crowd."

When a very young girl. In ordei
to reach my place of employment tact
day, I had to walk quite a dlstanci
after leaving the street car. On
morning it was raining heavily and 1
had no umbrella. As I alighted from
the car a young man stepped up to ml
and quietly walked nlong by my side,
shielding mo from tho rain with htl
umbrella. I was very shy and did nol
know what to say or do, so sold noth

gravely bowed nnd went on his way.
