dignilled amusement "Well, it don't
not at all. i don t see any black
boards, nor any desks nor books; and
1 don't scj any scholars, but us, nor,

Just then tho lat lack was supplied,
for a teacher enteiod, Miss Harnard
herself. Mi 6 was a rather tall, well
built woman of thirty-tiro, or there
about with keen eyes and a linn
mouth. Sho looked at the children
euriously, but with a smile.
"Do you wish to see me P" she asked.
"Yes. please. We're Mrs. White
acre's l.ttlo girls, and we want to come
to school here. Mamma would have
como with us, but papa's sick, and
thore wouldn't be anybody 't all to stay

"Do you know what kind of a school
this isP was the lady's next question.
All sortsof Burmfces procntvd them
elves to Fanny at this. Could they
hare gotten into a boy's school by
mistake? Was it a boarding-school
where the scholars were all grown?
Either of these suppositions was dread
ful, and it was with a heart that sank
for tho first time that morning thai
she asked, timidly: "What kind is it?"
"It is a kindergarten." was the an
swer; and as Fanny said "Oh!" in
tono intended to sound relieved, K tv

looked ci nuzzled a before. M ss

carpeted and papered. The walls were
hung w th pictures, hang ng-baskets
full of vines, and cages containing
canaries were in tho window: little
wicker chairs were scattered about tjo
room, and a Ion?, low desk ran around
two sides of it On a platform near the
door stood a piano, and ie .front of it
sat a young lady ready to play.
Hut best of all. tho room was filled
with little Rirls from three years of ago
to nine, all standing in rows, their
br ght faces turned toward the piano,
Such curls, such dainty aprons of mus
I'm and lao ), such beautiful pla d
dresses and shining shoes, and sum
white littlo bands sparkling w.th rings!
The ch Idren thought they nad cntereu
fairyland, and were sure ol it a mo
nicnt later, when tho musio struck up
and the rows of cim began to march
They wheeled and wheolod acrain,
formed themselves into a hollow
square, and performed all sorts of
bewildering evolutions. Then at
a given signal they filed each

taking up the first work of tho day.
This happened to bo making tiny bas
kcts out of many-colored splints, and
the little Whltacres watched It with ce
lighted eyes. Hut in a few minutes
Miss Harnard thought she heard some
thing that sounded like a sob, and look
ing down, she saw that the younger
ch Id was crying on her sister's shoul

"What is tho matter, my doar?" she
asked kindly, stooping down to wine

They were uot tho pair of worldly-wise

Miss Harnard leit sho had committed
herself, and could not go back. "Come
to-morrow, a littlo earlier, sho said,
"and I will holp you to start right"
Sho opened the door for them, and
followod them with her eyes as they
went cautiously down tho steps. At the
foot they turned as with ono accord,
looked back, smiled, and called out
"Habes in the wood, if eycr thore
were any!" exclaimed Miss Harnard as
sho dosed the door. -
Strangely enough, It was only the
evening butoro that Miss Harnard had
said to herself, ns she figured up her
reco'pts lor the half-terra: "What

When tho kindergarten department
closod at noon for the day, and Miss

her ruuslo that nho hud scarcely noticed
the entrance of her Bister with tho two
children that morning, and so was
nuito at a loss to' understand when
laulino said, Binding shamefully, as

Hut as she ,sa;d this, tho younger
woman put hor hands allectionateiy on
the elder's shoulders, and looked with
loving reproof into her eyes. Thjro
was a motherly feeling oftentimes
in Paulino Harnard's heart to
wards this half-sister, ten years her
junior, but she did not know motherly
ways of expre-sion, and that made a
troublesome reserve between them at
times, for Klllo was by nature demon
strat vo and fond of demonstration from
others. When a child sho had once
complained to their mother: 'Pauline
puts out her hand sometimes as if she
was go ng to pat mo, and then she just
buttons my urofs, or straightens my
collar, and I feel bo disappointed."
Whon, In later years, during Efllo's
college days, there camo to her a real
disappointment in tho shape of a lover's
quurrcl and a broken engagement the
mJther who had listoned to her com
plaints was doad, and sho felt that she
could tell only tho baro facts to Paul ue,
who had always been so absorbed in
making her own wav, as scarcely to
know that suoh a class as lovers ex
isted. So she had smiply mentioned
In her letters that the young senior
and herself were henceforth to bo
nothing to each other, and had added:
Please do not speak of this to mo
the sooner it is forgotten, the better."
I Paulino had looked upon this as n
very sensiblo way of taking it and had
ejected her sister homo again the
Same gnv. saucv girl as before; it took

tones and ways,' but she accustomed
herself to It gradually and kept silence
as sho had been bidden.
It had all happened fivo years ago,
and by this time tho lives of the two
women had settled into a rut so dtaep
that they could "barely see over the
edge of it" as Klllo said. There was
nothing to look forward to. very little
that wus ploasant to remember; every
Christmas found them buying gifts for
each other In a perfectly open and
aboveboard way, by which all the d s
tinctively Christmas flavor of surprise
was lost; every summer they took tho
same trip to the same farm-house,
whoro no one camo but themselves, and
whore thoy spent tho summer months,
lam inting'inwardly that it was not fall
and thev had no work to do.
That Fanny and Katy. sitting in her
littlo reception-room, were angels,
whom sho was entertaining unawares,
Miss Harnard had no idea if she al
lowed horself to,dwcll upon tho matter
of obligation at all, sho felt rather that
tho role of beneficiary was theirs.
At tho end of tho week, Klllo said,
abruptly, as sho sat crocheting by the
study-lamp: "l'aulino. something must
be done those shabby skirts v the

"I mean that I'm going to get somo
flannel and make somo dresses for
those children. They look l ko Ra
phael's cherubs in a splint frame."
"Hut do you sup) oso their mother
will allow it?"
"I'll go to se her and find out."
"1 wouldn't do that if I wcro you,
Kfllo. I don't believe she knows the
children are attond ng a private school,
and she nrght tike them away.
Christmas Is not far off, and you could
make up tho dresses and send them
anonymously as Christmas gifts."
"Hut how Khali I get their measure?"
"Let mo boa," said Miss Harnard,
musingly, ihey must be just ahouj

"Would vou make them up as Mother
"Yes, and make somo littlo hoods

Harnard, dropping tho papor and ba
cntn.ng thoroughly interested, while
Klllo with sparkling eyes and animated
face went Into det.t 1 to such an exteut,
that none but a dressmaker could be
exnectod to follow hor.
From that day forth, the mam top c
of conversation with tho two teachors
was the Whitacre children "our

Gradually, mutls and tippets, warm.
coarlet stock ngs, and tiny art cles
were added to tho outfit and on the
day before Christmas the whole was
pluco l in two large boxes, accom
panied by Chr'stmas cards and sent by

Carson street Tho boy hail his In
structions, and as soon as he had made
suro that it was the proper place of
deposit he dropped the boxes and ran.

Knowing no one. Mrs. Whitacre
would have found it diflleult to obt.t n
work for herself, even if sho could have
left her husband, who required almost
constant attention. With matters in
this shapo, and a bleak w nter sottl n?
down upon them, it was with a heavy
heart that Mrs. Whitacre opehed the
door to the messenger. 1
The boxes were marked pla'nly
enough, "Fanny and Katy Whitacre.
Christmas, 188," and all she could do
was to take them in and open them.
Tho contents, , w th their unspoken
message of comfort and care, drew
from her eyes tho tears which neither
hardship nor her husband's despond
ency bad forced to flow, and she laid
her bend down upon the boxes and had
a good cry. There aro times when a
sympathetic word, or look, or sign, is
the last straw, and this was one of
After the general delight that fol
lowed the open ng of the boxes camo a
general cunoity as to who could have
sent them. W'hilo they were still dis
cussing this quest on, as the children
stood arrayed from head to foot in their
new suits, camo a ring at the door
which was like none ever heard there
before. It was the postman, with the
first letter which had come to them
since their removal to the e ty.
"From Jack!" cried Mrs. Whitacre,
"and it has been a whole month find
ing us! It must have been wr.tten about
the time we moved, and ho hadn't re
ceived my letter giving our new ad
dress. It is post-marked Los Angeb-s."
Scarcely had she glanced at the first
fbw lines, then she turned to her hus
band with a glad cry. "Ho is coming in
b x weeks, he Bays that is two weeks
f om now oh, and ho thinks he may
s ittle hero! Isn't that too good to bo

0 f paper fluttered into her lap, a check
for fifty dollars! "To buy toys for. the
b ibics," the writer explained. It was
v iry evident that her struggles to get

ii i the letters of his proud si.-ter.
And so it was that on the day after
J ew Tear's, while tho children were at

p 'ctudly and took the houso by storm.

s ropger and not quito so colorless. As

After a good hour of talk about
e erything that had happened and was
g ing to happen, the newcomer grew
ii ipaiicnt and anxious for tho children
t como, and finally proposed going to
tno H'-iiooi aim surprising inciu.
("Where are they?" ho asked; - "Do

Borry street and King avenue, they tell
me. I have never been to visit it
though I mean to somo day. Bring
them homo withyou. Jack, if you may."
A fow moments later Jack Medway,
with a puzzled face, was walking up
the steps of Miss Barnard's pr.vatu
school. "Th's is certa'uly tho right
corner," he said, "but now ;n tho
world cau they send tho children to a

simpl v sent word that a gentleman
would like to see the Whitacre children,
if the r teacher d d not object. It
might bo ull right Klllo thought, but
there was no telling she would do

out so much as a look in the littlo
cloak-room mirror, sho went into tho
reception-room. Sho d d not know

breath, she put out one of her hands
and said, demurely:
"It is really 1. Mr. Medway."
