she had had a quarrel with Sydney
the evening before, lie said be had
n chance to buy a share in a shoe

get It If he stole It or had to marry
an ostrich. Those were his exact
words and such a meaning look as
ho cast at her!
Agatha had wept all night, not about
the tist rli h. but became she couldn't
raise a thousand dollars, for she had
a soft heart, and she loved Sydney.
Then the next morning was Friday,
the thirteenth. And then the old gen

Agatha had never seen him In such
a fury. He muttered and scowled, and
looked as If he might drop dead at
any moment from apoplexy. He Hum:
himself down and ordered two hard
boiled eggs and n glass of Ice water.

Agatha had Just got the Ice on the
spoon when the old gentleman craned
forward with such a fiendish scowl
that she dropped It down the old gen

Let us draw n veil over the proceed

the outraged proprietor, and instantly
taken back as soon as tho old gentle
man hnd snorted his way out of the
door, swearing that ho would never re
turn, still engaged In the futile effort
to find the piece of Ice all that was
left of It. And Agatha wept salt, bit
ter tears, nnd they had to give her
