shortly after Mr. Ambrose Doak had
folded his bands over his peaceful
breast at the close of a useful life as the
proprietor of a cut-rate grocery. Tear
ful friends waved farewells to them from
the dock, and the three dowdy little
women, in their home-made traveling
gowns, polished their noses on their
neatly folded pocket handkerchiefs,
sobbing in each other's arms as the ship
moved slowly from the pier,
"And you'll write me just how the

girls; and the bosom friend of the mar
riageable daughters promised to write
faithfully three times a week.
Six months later a carriage rolled up
to the brick house which had so long
sheltered the Doak family, while close
behind came a truck loaded with a doz

like wildfire in the neighborhood. The

on her daughter with maternal pride.
