THE TALE OF
CHAPTER XX IV.
Half and Half.
All the sheen in the pasture hur
ried down the hillside toward the
bars to look at Snowball. And soon
doiens of deputes might have been
heard. -He i!M "He isn't!" "He'a
sheared!" "He's not!- About half the
flock were sure Johnnie Green had
Dont b ud, youn .majtl" Aunt
sheared Snowball; while the other
half were just as sure that Snow
ball still wore his fleece.
At last Aunt Nancy Ewe went
close to Snowball and walked all the
way around him. And when she
joined her friends, she announced
that she. had solved the mystery.
"Snowball is sheared on one side
only!" she exclaimed.
It was true. And the moment the
flock learned what had happened,
they set up a deafening baaing. "Baa-ba-ba-ia-ba!"
they laughed. "Now
who's a sight?" the asked Snowball.
"Now who looks funny?"
Poor Snowball couldn t say a
word. He hung his head. For he
was terribly ashamed of his appear
"It's not my fault," he wailed at
last. "When Johnnie Green had me
half sheared that horrid boy Red
came along and asked Johnnie to go
fishing. And you know Johnnie
Green 1 He can't miss a fishing tris
"Ha!" cried Aunt Nancy Ewe. And
she flung at Snowball the very words
he had used the day before. "Johnnie
Green's 'tomorrow' means 'never'!"
"Oh! I hope not!" cried Snowball.
That would be awful!' .
Somehow Snowball managed to get
through that dreadful day. But the
following day he gave up all hope;
for Johnnie Green never came near
him. Nor did he come the next day,
nor the next, nor the next.
Little by little the sheep stopped
teasing Snowball. Little by little he
became used to having one side ot
him sheared and the other side thick
For some time he tried to keep as
much out of sieht is possible, graz
ing along the stone wall where he i
could bury himself in the bushes
whenever one of the flock strayed
near him. Or if he couldnt hide, he
took pains to stand so that only one
side of him should show. -'
It was a long while before his
neighbors stopped smiling when they
saw him. But finally there Were only
two in the flock that couldn't seem
to forget how ridiculous Snowball
looked. These were the young black
ram and old Aunt Nancy Ewe. And
perhaps they can't be blamed, be
cause Snowball had once openly
made fun of them. When they were
near him Snowball was very uncom
fortable. But with the rest of the
flock he felt more at his ease. And
sometimes he even went so far as to
say that he enjoyed being only, half
"On a cool day I find it pleasant
to turn my clipped side toward the
sun," he would remark. "And if
there's a chilly wind I don't have to
shiver. I let it blow against my
fleecy side; and I never feel it!"
In two weeks Snowball was claim
ing that he preferred to be only half
Maybe that was true. Maybe he
was only trying to make himself
think it was. Anyhow, Johnnie Green
came into the pasture one day and
called to him. Snowball bounded
down the grassy slope toward the
bars. v .
And when he came back to the pas
ture, sometime later, he didn't look
very different from his companions.
One side of him, however, showed
a pinkish tinge, because Johnnie
Green had just sheared that side very
close. And the fleece on his other
side had already begun to grow out
. But Snowball didn't mind that. He
had a pink nose, always. And he
sai dthat pink was his favorite color.
And never, again did he laugh at
anybody, no matter how queer a per
son might look.

enough, but he la sort of fat, and I
Just don't want to go with him.

At my hysterical little appeal to
my father, both Allen Drake and
Lillian Underwood moved toward
Lillian bent over me reassuringly
and put her hand caressingly upou
Allen Drake did not touch me, but
when under Lillian's caress, and the
mute tenderness of my father arms.
I regained my composure and
chanced to glance at him, I found
him regarding me with compastion
rte, tensely tender gaze, so unlike his
usual expression of cynical, half
patronising amusement, that for the
second I forgot the importance of the
revelation I had just heard in the
surprise his look gave me.
"Daughter! Daughter!" my father
was murmuring in shocked surprise.
"If I had dreamed you would feel
this way about it, I would have told
you at once that H
"Please!" Lillian interrupted ruth
lessly, while I saw a flash as of re
lief cross her composed face. "Write
what you are going to say. I have a
fancy that Allen and I will be mighty
glad to read it too. Time enough for
talking a few minutes later."
There was a meaning in her tone
hidden from me, but which I saw
both Allen Drake and my father un
derstood. In the eyes of the brilliant
government agent there was the
same oddly-relieved expression which
Lillian's had mirrored. But my
father's eyes held, or so I fancied, a
reproachful surprise as he gazed
steadily at Lillian.
"So you thought" he began,
then he checked himself abruptly,
drew a small pad of paper and a
pencil from his pocket, wrote rapidly
upoa it, tore off the sheet and passed
it to me when he had finished. I read
it with a sudden bound of my spirits
and passed it otf to Lillian and Allen
Drake. But its words were indelibly
fixed in my memory.
Don't Rub It In."
"No harm has been done. .Katie
has the memorandum, no doubt, but
it is worthless. I placed it in the
book purposely, because I was very
sure that attempts would be maae to
s-et it. Mv real secret is safeguarded
almost beyond human power to reach
it. But it suits me that the people
searching for it should imagine for a
while that they have succeeded. For
that reason I wish Katie to be aided
to deliver them the memorandum she
has stolen. But she must be thor
oughly frightened first, so that she
will know no other will but ours. Per
sonally, I do not believe she acted
from any other motive than intense
fear of the person who had played
upon her superstitions." , I
Lillian looked ud trom the reading
and walked toward the fireplace with
"May ir she asked.
Mv father bowed his acknowledg
ment, and she out the paper in the
blaze and watched carefully until it
was certain that no telltale scrap re
mained. Then she walked back to
my father and held out her hand.
"Will you forgive me for cluttering
up the earth?" she asked contritely.
I might have known.
Allen Drake was beside her, look
ing at my father with very much the
expression of a shamefaced school
boy caught in a discreditable act .
"If you'd find any satisfaction in
booting . me around the premises,
Chief," he said, "go to Tt. I'd lie
out of it and swear on a stack o!
Bibles I never thought anything, but
there's no use trying to fool you."
My father smiled.
"I can't blame either of you for
your thought," he said, a bit sadly.
"I am getting old, you know."
"Yes, the past few minutes prove
that indisputably, Lillian drawled.

resentment against them for wound
