CHAPTER NO. 358
THE WAY MADGE AND DICKY
Lillian's scheme worked with
clock-like mechanism, when, after
my : impatient mother-in-law baa
been helped into the car by Dicky.
we started down the road . es' ensi
biy for $ag . Harbor. Just as we
reactied the Dacey, farm I. stalled
the engine with a lack of co-9rd;
inatlon between brake and clutch,
which in 'my days of learning to
drive had been only too easy of
accomplishment. Then, .beading
forward so that my . hands wer
screened, I turned the switch key
fnvgh, so. that ignition, was im
WhatX the - matter?" Mother
firaham, demanded, tartly.
Just stalled. tne engine, I fan
cy, trying to avoid that rut."; I re
turned "glibly, putting my foot on
the - self-starter, with a menta'
apology to its mechanism for the
unpardonable motor v sin I was
committing. 4 I tried, it. seyeral
times and. turned to Dicky.,
"It wn'i start.", y.aald with ,an
air, of, nclpeBaoess. - l
An Adrntrinr Chorus' $
"Evidently not," he returned
drybr. !"PfrebaMy yor battery
has run down. How,- about tbo
water In itt I'll bet? yon haven't
had it looked. at in weeks!"!
"You'd lpseuypur bet." 1 1 said
rejoicing- at the air of naturalness
he was giving the affair. ' "But 1
can't start it. Do you suppose It
you cranked It " J
' Dicky: glared malevolently at
me across his .mother's uncon
scious head, buj climbed down
grumbling and cranked: the car
two, or three, times, with, of course
no success. Then, he vent through
the farce pf Inspecting the oil, war
ter, and; gas, f ipally with great
aravity delivering the yerdlct I
was looking for. ' " ' , ; '
' "Something must have gone
wrong -with ' the encine. We'll
just have to wait till the next car
comes r alpng and , send a message
to the nearest, garage to come
out and see .whaVs thejnatter with
us We, ca baye, th.en send oof

inbther-lriaw demanded, 111 be

I in, draft if. the , carriage v stood
still. Heroically repressing, a
mile at my mother-in-law's sim
ilar inconsistency I merely waited
to see how Dicky would hjMdle
"Yes, it does make a difference
when the car is standing still.
he remarked ,wltbo)jt the ghost of
a smjle. "But .why don't you get
out and walk-around a Dili n
I'm not mistaken Madge, Isn't this
the old farm of which Mrs. Ticer
was telling us, the fine old place
that was ao terribly run down?'
' "The one with the wonderful
apple . orchard and the lilac
hedge?" I queried , demurely
"Yes, It is. I am quite sure.. The
Ulacs are, fine,, aren't , . they? '
"Come With Me."
My mother-in-law cast a critical
glance at the miracle of lavender
loveliness against the green
"Good enough," she returned
curtly. "Help me down. Rich;
ard. I'm going to look. oyer this
jplace Margaret, yQii 'come .with
jne. ' Kicpara, you come aione
as sopn as j your ' garage "man
reaches here." ;n ' "
' Dicky winked encouragingly at
me as he helped me from' the car
after he had seen bis mother safe
ly to the ground. I winked back
smilingly, then dutifully, offered
my i arm to Mother Graham. She
took, it with , less than hep usual
crustiness, and, I noticed hope
fully, that .there, waa a distinct
light of interest in her ' eyes "as
she looked over the gnarled old
apple orchard.;':1 "V
Thia is Just ; like my : father's
apple orchard at home.? ahe, said
with a Uttle unconscious sigh
"The man who planted, this knew
what he was about, j But how it
has been nepeptea; it;s: worm
restoring, however. t I never in
my, life, saw, such a wealth of
blossomsr I wonder( how nnica
land there is here."
'l think I heard Mrs. Ticer say
something about 30 acres,. I has
arded. 4Have . you noticed tle
house? i It's horribly runA dowp,
but," I imagine Jt was, fairly good,
for that day. of course-
I made my tone as deprecatory
a s possible, knowing the surest
way of rousing heir ardent interest
in the old place. She is a mosc in-
tolerent champion of the " old.
times 'against the new, and noth
ing makes her quite so angry as
a slur on the older times, from, a
member of the younger, gener-.
"You only show, JPW ignor?
ance, Marjare" she rejoined
coldly, "by such a statement. Any
thing good enough for that day,
is far too good for the young up
starts of this generation. They
can't appreciate it. f'm. going ta
look it. over. Who. haathe kejrt"
"I fancy it. isn't locked, it s i
empty, you know. and they rarely
lock doora down here." I.was BrB !
of that poipt, for wtrs.' Ticer, at my
behest, had sent jJerry scurryipw
across lots ' earlier In the morn
ing' with commands to unlock all
the doors of the old place.
"We'll aooa ifind out. Come
with me at once. Good enough
tor that, day! Humph!"? '' '
She walked, towa-rd tne nouse.
muttering objurgations, agamsc
the crudity and ignorance or tne
younger generation, while I fpl-
lowed, my heart beating nign wjip
hope that the charm of the oia
place would obcess her as it had
Dicky and me.
