lu tiro b'cutli' cunvut of Mis Sarah's
life by far the wildest cddlos wen?
Pnola's love affairs. Miss Sarah hail
never had a lover herself she had al
ways been too busy taklug care of
Paola, who was the younger sister, a
slim, pale creature, with vlvUl eyes
aud a head that habitually drooped a
little as though weighted by Its owu
gold hair and a sense of languorous
Beside Miss Sarah's old time cour
tesies Paola was as an orchid to a
pansy, but underneath the melancholy
was a certalu irresponsible deviltry,
a certain lutangible witchery, that
brought the most eligible youths of the
neighborhood in suppliance to her feet
and filled Miss Sarah with uncedslag
wonder and amazement
Whenever a new rlctiai appeared
upon the scene Miss Sarah thrilled
with apprehension. As be was friend
ly, the approved of him; as he was
more conspicuously attentive, she
watched for him; then la geutle per
plexity that never vanished with add
ed experience she saw him hover, ad
vance, retreat, hover again and plunge.
When the little comedy wag played
out she took up her knitting with a
sigh of relief, opened her volume of
Felicia Hemans at the purple book
mark and prepared to rest before an
Paola herself slipped from one emo
tional cataclysm to another, as the
Blender moon from cloud to cloud.
They veiled her vivid calm for a mo
ment, but she always emerged un
fettered on the other side.
She had been wearing Francis Lock
trood'a roses for a month, when Miss
Sarah one night, after three gentle calls
unanswered, stepped through the long
French window on to the moonlit ve
randa with a crimson scarf in her hand.
The June night called for no such
guard against Its close, sweet warmth,
but oa the subject of damp and dew
Miss Sarah was Inflexible.

shadow dapplel length of the veranda,
raised her voice a little and called
again, "Paola, dear!"
A mocking bird In the cedar by the
gate gurgled a liquid impertinence that
ended in a low call to his mate, but
the rest was silence.
Miss Saraa looked across the lawn,
then dovrn at her feet
"Paola must have this scarf," she
said to benwlf sternly, "and I suppose
she is sitting on the bench by the
Black Prince the most imprudent
child!" That the Black Prince was a
beloved rosebush saved Miss Sarah's
remarks from their apparent Impro
priety, aud, mindful of her steps, she
hurried Into the path that led to the
Black Prince's domains across the
The moon burned white above her in
a cloudless sky, and Miss Sarah re
sponded delicately to the Influence of
the hour. A faint fragrant dream, with
boyish eyes, called to her as she went
slowly down the path, and young faces
swam mistily in her memory as If they
had drifted there with the smell of the
box in the hedge.
She thought of the uisht her mother
died, Another June; of a flowered gown
she hhil worn the day she was sixteen,
of a yom, something about daffodils,
or was it roses?
"'The love that came with the daf
fodil); aud went away with the roses'
that (vas it," said Miss Sarah, with a
littlB sigh of satisfaction, "only the
flaffjdils come back with the spring
and every summer there are roses, so I
really don't nee the sense of that. Those
Ion songs are nearly always rather
silly." She stopped to thrust back the
daring sweetness of a yellow banksia.
"The garden is very sweet tonight,"
sajd Miss Sarah to herself, "and God
walked In the cool of the garden. I
wonder was It like this." She paused

She was within a few feet of thera
and a call trembled on her lips, when
Paola s own voice stopiied her.
"Go on," said laoln lu n soft, hurried
whisper, and Miss Sarah by some queer
instinct drew back Into Hie shade of
the great oak behind the Union, fearful
lest au Incautious movement would be

breathing, for Miss Sarah was learned
In the ways of Paola's suitors, and It
was one of her lest learned lessons

"Go on." said Paola again, and young
Lockwood s voice came out of the deep

her at first, then echoed clearer:

The last word quivered sentient on
the air, aud Miss Sarah trembled with
a strange fear of It Her Augers found
the rough bark of the tree and clung;
sne waited, hungered, for the rest, but
young Lockwood's voice broke from
the beat of verse into uneven words:
"Paola, tny beautiful. It Is our story."
It Is the story of Paola and Fran
cesco," saUl the girl dreamily.
Paola and Francesca Paola and
Francis what does it matter? 'Wert
thine eyes strange? Did I not know
thy voice?' ;
Miss Sarah, dizzied and enwrapt by
she knew not what roseate mist, saw
the white grace of Paola waver and
lean to the shadow and heard a few
moments of magical silence, the whis
per, tender, exultant:
"And in the book they read no mors that

Miss Sarah felt her way back to the
path with unnecessary care. If her
light footsteps bad been the crash of
brasses they would not have reached
the two by the Black Prince, but Miss
Sarah did not know It. She hurried
along between the roses, catching her
breath in little gasps as she went, and
the wraiths of lost years swarmed
around her, stinging her to wild, Jndefl
nlte regret. She passed through the
moonlight and up tfie steps, through
the open window, and caught up her
neglected knitting with a pathetic de
sire for thingi tangible and common
place. She openeJ the volume of Fe
licia Hemans at t-ie purple bookmark,
but without fcnow'edge of a line.
"I never knew vhat it was like!" she
said pitifully to Irerself. "I wish I had
known." The magic of the mionllt gar
den swept over her again, and the mil
sic of the bver's verse murmured la
her eare. Miss Sarah trembled with n
vague, unhnppj longing for the thlny
that she had nsver known the thing
that were the inheritance of Paola. her
sister, yet had never been hers.
Beyond the window the garden lay
vast and wonderful beneath the moon,
to her a land where life ran In stninge
currents between banks of enchanted
Suddenly tnd without warning a tear
slipped down Miss Sarah's cheek aud
splashed u;wn the purple bookmark.
Another followed It and yet another;
theu Miss Sarah drew herself together
and shut between the leaves of Felicia
Hemans poems ier one belated vision
of romance. ' And In the book they
read no more that day," she said to
herself, wfth a sad little sigh. Then
she took up her knitting again to wait
