The Judge gave a jump and gasped:
"Oood Iord, hear that scream! Some

a smile.
"Bit till. Judge; It's only Gloria Staf

grumbling: "The little devil-always In

Dr. Itoyce came to her defense with a
curious warmth. "They're driving her
with too tight a rein, fhe'a too blg

as a child much longer." ,
The old man sighed; "We fathers with

The doctor shook his head: "Tou run
out on the links and play a little golf

"I don't feel quite up to golf."
"Go on; don't disobey. You're worse

corridor gave hlin the missing word.
"You're worse than aioria."
He lifted the Judge from his chair,
thrust a. bag of golf clubs Into his arms
and ordered him off. The, Judge pleaded:
Who'll play with me? Will you?"
"Not much! .You've had enough of me
for today. Here's your daughter. Miss
Lois, let me Introduce your father. Take
him around the links once, won't you?"
Loli obeyed with more grace than
gradousness. Iler thoughts were on the
two string to her bow. Phe had had to
content herself for her first week at
Plm Beach with the attention of nich
ard Freneau, a young broker In charge
of a branch office at tho Hoyal Poln
rlsna. But recently shi had oaught the
eye of Pavld Stafford, and she had tried
to hold It. Freneau was handsome much
ton good looking for his own good or
the good of any girl or woman he fo
cused hi eye upon. Freneau was mag
jiftlo and he wss grrat fun, but Pavld
Stafford was good business. To capture
the son of Plerpont Stafford would be
high finance something tremendous.
The Judge, her fsther, kept his eyes on
Lola more than on the golf ball, and
landed in the bunker with regularity,
lie know that his daughter was up to
some mischief, but he was sure that It
was not the Innocent mischief of the ob
streperous Gloria.
Gloria Stafford, exquisite In her bath
ing suit, wag like a bisque figure come
to life very much to life as she stood
outside hor bedroom door and held the
knob against ber govern;sa, who tugged
in vain at the opposite knob. Then Olurla

Gloria with, shrieks of laughter mado

o'clock, the fashionable bathing time. To

to be disgraced before all the Important
people. She could see some of thein

openly ridiculed her and splashed water
over her.
She pretended not to notice him, but,
reaching her father at last, she hurled
hereelf upon him and ducked him under
the water. Then she scrambled to the
beach. When the enraged governess
seized her by the wrist Gloria tried to
pull her Into the froth. But the gover

Gloria out of the romantic sea Into a

at some time in that future which she
wa welting for th next lntallment
of an exciting serial. Gloria was woman
enough to recent reslrslnt and child
enough to be capable of making a tragle
blunder if she ever broke away,
Gloria issued a declaration or Indepen

It began with: "I'm too old to have a

snapped back. "I want one thing un

Gloria stared at the problem and felt
herself slipping gack Into childhood at a

him to her. Pr. Royce had graduated at

pointed to tha blackboard: "I'm In Jail
for a thousand years. It will take me at
least that long to do this hateful prob
lem." Royce could not enter her room to go
to the blsekboard, so he asked her to
bring the blackboard to him. fine fetched
it Joyously and gave him chalk and said:
"There Isn't any answer, though."
He was too polite to say, "Why, this
I the easiest thing In the world, but he
showed that It was for him by the speed
and smiling ease of his chalk work, -
In g moment the riddle was solved.
Gloria understood It a little less than
before, but It meant a release from cap
tivity, and she was so entranced that
she flung her arms about him and gave
him a resounding kiss and called him
"a wonderful, marvelous, angel man."
To her It was a kls of childish grati
tude for the help of older wisdom, Bhe
hurried the blackboard to the easel snd
began to copy the doctor' neat figure
In her own scrawl.
But Royce stood quivering with th
unexpected attack. He knew that It wa
a young girl' kiss given in confidence
and ignorance, and it was therefore sa
cred. But he could not help feeling a
thrill of prophetic hope. Boon she would
grow up to womanhood and she must
love someone, snd why not him? Khe
ws very rich, hut hi own future was
gorgeous In hi dreams, and Gloria wss
tha most gorgeous thing In his gorgeous
Then he reproached himself for the
mood and grew sad at th thought of
the years that must roll over Gloria's
sunlit head before lie could even pay
court to her. And In those year what
dangers might 'she not encounter dan
ger to her health, her soul, her happi
ness? He longed to protect her through
thein all.
He saw that Gloria had already for
gotten him. .She had copied his work
and she wa- rubbing out his calculations.
He wondered If that were prophotlo, too.
When Gloria had the blackboard all
ship-shape she howled to tho governess
to come and see her triumph. Gloria re
gretted the deception; but what other
refuge ha the weak from the strong?
Mis Sidney raised her eyebrow and
doubtless suspected that Gloria had en
Joyed outaldo aid; but she, had an en
gagement of her own with the tutor of
a rich young Imbecile, and she pretended
to be convinced.
.Gloria wa pergnlttcd to call It an alge
bra lesson, and for a reward she was
assigned to the study of a list of the
English kings. Gloria did not mind that,
for she 'hid a stolon novel Inside the
page and read something fsr more Im
portant to hor than ancient history mod
ern romance.
If Gloria had not learned a lesson of
ny importance that day, neither had
her elders.
When dinner time came at last Gloria's
maid , allowed her to select her newest
Paris gown for dinner. And It was a
pleasant dinner, on tha veranda, with
Ihe twilight drawing round like soft cur
tains, the lamp glowing everywhere In
the tropical verdure liko little moons, and
the glimmering afromohlle spinning
everywhere along tha walks.
And there wa music, The dancing
was beginning a little distance away.
Gloria tried to sneak a sip of her father's
coffee, but Mlsa Sidney caught her at It
and took tho cup away. But except for
her everything was beautiful and tender;
the very atmosphere was full of pleasant
reverie. And then Mis Sidney had to
look at her watch and ruin everything
wtth tho Insulting word: "Bedtlmol"
Gloria pretended not to hoar and
talked vigorously to Pavld. But he only
laughed an elder brotherly laugh and
lighted another cigarette. She ran to her
father and nestled in hi arms, He
hugged her close, but she could tell he
wa afraid of that gorgon governi'sa.

one glance. If look were smacks In the
eye he would have had a good one. But
he only laughed the more. Then her
father hardened his heart and gave her
a run-along-now kiss.
She went along, but she did not run.
Once more the rebellion began to simmer
In her brain.
Her helplessness was her chief grlev
snce. How could a young girl defend
herself from a big governess and a big
maid, a flinty-hearted father, and a
brute of a brother? Sh was pondering

Gloria could stand everything but that.
She stole from her bed and tiptoed lo the

her not to piny that tune on her nose.
