Marie was going to graduate In June.
She was anxious to show her Inde
pendence, so she decided to tench. She
thought she would rather teach In col

then she wouldn't have the trouble of
1sr.plinlng the unruly youths and
ma K'ns. Parenthetically, It may be
, marked thnt she forgot about the
J lb times she used to have on the
' i k r-nv during the mathematics class.

hae been deprived of some of the most
inspiring conversations by thl rainy
spring. Then I always feel so untidy.
I can't wear my light clothes, and my
hair won't stay In curl as long as I
am fixing it. Of course I can't have
near sqjnuch Influence with my friends

myself one of the new women, and I
lelleve It Is every woman's duty to
make herself as attractive as possible.
But I Just can't when It's so rnlnj.
Wasn't It awful to think It even

new bonnet, nnd n new dress. 1 hadn't
thought nboiit anything else but them
for days, and when I found It raining
that morning. I Just had a good cry.
It seemed ns If my heart would luenk.
When I was going to church I met
Maude. She commenced to tell how
glad we ought to bo because It had

what trouble a rain makes.
