Holding a Husband
Add Garrison's Kt Phase of
Revelations of a Wife
The Way Lillian Endeavored to
Ease Madge's Mind.
When I awoke I could see the
glimmer of the sun beneath my care
Jdlly lowered window curtains.
Dicky must have Riven instructions
that because of my nervous head
ache I should not be disturbed, for I
realized that it was late in the fore
noon. For a minute or two I lay still, un
easily wondering at the cause of the
weighty depression which seemed to
Have settled upon me. Then I re
membered the alternative which
Dicky unwittingly had given me the
night before, that of acquiescing in
his plan for trying to get back the
house he had sold, or by a rtfusal,
leaving the burden of helping me
move and find a new home upon Lil
lian's already overweighted shoul
ders. t I shrunk from confessing even to
myself how much the fact of Edith
Fairfax's presence next door in the
Durkee home meant to my decision
If it were not for her I would have
snatched eagerly at the chance of re
gaining the home I loved o well,
and whose sale by Dicky I had re
sented so deeply. But if she were
to be my neighbor I could not bear
to remain in the house, and knew
that I would welcome any shelter
which would take me far from her.
Yet Lillian s health meant every
thing to me. I knew her well
enough to realize that she would
oend all her strength, indeed, ex
haust herself, in her zeal to help me.
I had a short, sharp struggle with
myself, and then my love for Lillian
won. Not for any advantage to my
self would I jeopardize her health.
Dicky had not put the matter to me
tor decision, but I had an intuition
that he would not attempt to. see the
people who had bought the house
until after he had talked further with
,me. I must be ready to back him
up in his decision to get the place
back. Then I must find sorre place
for Lillian near us, for the summer
at least. To me, alarmed as I was
' ,by my own observation, of Lillian's
physical weakness, and Dicky's re
marks concerning the possibility of
her collapse, the most imperative
task confronting me was protecting
miy friend fnom the consequences of
her own reckless expenditure of time
I bathed and dressed quickly.
-Hearing no one astir in the house, I
wondered apprehensively whether
Dicky might not have been mistaken
ft'! his optimism concerning Katie's
jW maining with us. But when I had

turned sedately. "Katie, are those
really some of your sour milk pan

baked them all for these people."

out in kitchen. Vant some now 'or

"Just grapefruit, no cereal. Katie,

returned pleasantly. Then I sat
down in the chair Dicky pulled out
for me and looked attentively at Lil
lian. She had a rested look, as it
she had had a good night's sleep,
hut her face was slightly flushed and
I guessed that she had been having
i( r.w argument of some sort with
"Have you finished your breakfast,
sweetheart?" she asked her small
daughter, and at the child's affirma

her voice so that even so assiduous
a listener as Katie would have had
no chance to overhear her.
"The Dicky-bird chirps" she
- drawled, "that he is going to make
an effort to get back this house
from the people to whom he sold it.

"Now, laying aside the fact that

there st:ll remains this which I'd

"I realize just as much as you do,

that reason, for one thing, that I am

That was what Tommy "ox was
thinking about when he sat there on
his haunches and looked up ro inno

Tommy sat there. a bright idea came
to him.. So he held his paw to his
stomach and pretended to be ill. And
as soon as he saw that Mr. Gray
Squirrel thought he was ill,. Tommy
fell Over on his side and made be

Though his eves were shur tight,
Tommy's ears were so sharp that he
could tell when Mr. Gray Squirrel
came-down. the tree. And he could
hear him slowlv picking h's way
nearer and nearer. Tommy's nose
was sharp, too, and he could smell
Mr. Gray Squirrel. He smclled so

Gray Squirrel had caught that flicker

tree just ahead of Tommy 'Fox; and
though Tommy leaped hiph up the
trunk, he was too late. Mr. 'Gray
Squirrel scrambled up the tree so
fast thrft 'his big, buhy ail Jus
whisked across Tommy's fact, And
in another second he was safe ui the
(ree-top, chattering and scolding and
calling lommy names. .
Tommy Fox felt very foo.islu- He
realized that if he had jitmred tip
without first opening his eye. lie
would not . have given M'.' Gray
Squirrel any warning: and then he
would have caught the plump ..old
fellow.' But it was too late -now.
Another time he. would knen,' better.
And he sneaked off, to try the same
trick' on one of Mr. Gray Squirrel's
friends. ; -
It was no use. Mr. Squirrel fol
lowed hiiu. jumping from ' cte 'tree
ten to another, and' made r.' great
noise, calling after him and jeering
at him, and telling all his friends
about the mean trick Tommy had
tiied to play on him.
And to Tommy's great disgust., an
old crow high up in a tall tree heard
the story, and haw-hawed lovdly'. he
was so amused. He made such a
racket that all the forest ' people
heard him; and Tommy knew that
there was no sense in tryirg . to
catch a squirrel around thete that
clay. He went down into the
meadow and began hunting oickcts.
And though he didn't have a.-- good
a lunch as he wanted, probably he
ate all that was good for hi.'n. ;
