Lucia turned, with her hands in the
pic-crust, to look at her; for, of course,
this important discovery had not been
made until Lucia had Iter calico apron
on, her sleeves rolled up, and her hands
deep in the Hour. Molly had a genius
for that sort of thing. She stated the
result of her investigations now as cheer
fully as if she had been a second Chris
topher Columbus, and the empty sugar
box another America.
It did not strike Lucia quite as pleas
antly. Aside from being always en
gaged iua guerrilla warfare against this
propensity of things in general to be out,
she did not altogether fancy having to
pause in her occupation while Molly
made a tri p to the village store and back.
"jiposerti better go alter 'cm," sug-(
gestetl Molly, with beautiful serenity.
Lucia surveyed the dim patch of sun
shine that fell through the window upon
her white table, looked up at the ceiling
and down at the painted lloor, and una
ble to conjure any plan for making pies
without the missing articles, answered,
It wits Saturday, and to the tired young
teacher, busy with her school all the
week, Saturday meant a good deal. At
least it always seemed beforehand as if it
might mean a good deal, though, when
the time really came, a host of common,
uninteresting little things usually
crowded in, and the grand possibilities
were crowded out. She kucw of nicer
things to do with this day than to chop
it up into pics; only that tlio pies were
wanted, and somenoiiy must mane incm.
Jlut while Molly was taking a short
route to the store, around every availa
ble point of interest, she slipped upstairs
into an old arm-chair, anil took a book
to console herself during the enforced

and a brass thimble on one finger, bent
over a tabic covered wiin ciotns, pat
terns, and pincushions, while the paler,
less positive-looking Mrs. Moore sat j
sewing by a window. Presently Lucia's
story ran suddenly into an old moral,
and'she drew herself up combatively.
"'JJecontentwith the things that you
have!' Well, that's easy enough! It's
being content with the things that you
haven't, that's the trouble," she medi
tated, beginning to count up, almost
unconsciously, that unprofitable part of
her possessions that.consi&totl only in

cloth to the other, and surveying it first
over her spectacles and then under
them. "You see, when I put it in this

It seemed as if the words had grown
so familiar to her lips that they almost

faint smile. "And no wonder," she ad -

tence in the book, "for everything is too
short at one ond, or too narrow at one
side generally it's loth. Nothing ever
comes iu full, abounding measure; aud
it takes an immense amount of twisting
and piecing to get a respectable life-pattern
out of this world, anyhow."
"Well," said Aunt Samantha, briskly
setting her spectacles again, and catch-
ing up her scissors, "taiif t no great
matter. To bo sure, It's a kind of com-
fort when you're about a thing to have
it come out whole, and snve so many

"I wonder if it won't?" mused Lucia.
"It seems to me a smooth, unbroken
web might be fairer, even while all is
done, than a life patched up out of odds
and ends, like a bed-quilt."

the sitting-room again.
f'Mrs. i)oon is coming-up the front

"Shelll .be at :the door in a minute, and
I suppose it is you she will want to see."
Lucia glanced around the room, and
wondered why Mrs.3)oon,of all persons,

herdrcss telling talcs of the Hour barrel?
Kiddles necessarily left unsolved while
she ushered the Iadv in.
Mrs. J)oon accepted a chair, and placed
her delicate buttoned boots on the
fender. Her round eves alwavs looked
as if they had just rested upon some as
tonishing sight, so that it was with only
usual amazement that they surveyed the
nine apartment; but Lucia never could
get used to their expression.
"Saturday is a leisure not leisure

remarked Mrs. Doon, graciously hiking
note oi tne nour spots.
"Very," answered Lucia, non-committal

Some strange speculations threaded in
and out of those yawning rents together
with the yarn not the brightest or most
hopeful of thoughts, and the young face
grew weary aud dispirited.

sleeves, now, I could finish tills," said
Aunt Samantha, as the evening shadows
began to gather iu the little room.

about being inspirited, and the light was
growing too dim for sewing.

hard 'adobe soil' with a heavy sledge ;
hammer; the lured man held the pickets
aud the husband held the children, iu

boys, wcro lat, ragged and saucy, while
the younger children received lacteal

with a vim that showed courage Hint
determination to get a living by indus

our way we came to a new house, being
finished, and found a fine young girl,
just iu her teens, helping her father lath
the building. She used the hammer

done credit to a professional lather. The
country is safe. With such wives and
