Betty's mother went into hy

Two hours afterwards her mother

George had received the doctor's
certificate of death and called the
head of her father's lodge and
the undertaker had removed the
body. i
The next three days were a bad
dream. She left everything to
George. Working with the head
of the lodge, he arranged the fun

they attended intermittently.
Mr. Brown had left no will. In
the small cafe in the cigar store
he had a Iffa insurance policy for
five thousand dollars. George
took charge of the contents of the
safe and. in conjunction with the
head of Mr. Brown's lodge, they
arranged to sell the cigar store
for twelve hundred dollars, a low
price, but the only offer they had
The store had prospered only be
cause of the good will of Mr.
Brown's customers, and this die 1

Mrs. Brown put the money for
the store in the hank and at once
bought herself an attractive out
fit of mourning. She was highly
indignant at Betty's refusal to put
on black. She said Betty had no
reaped for her father's memory.
In the course of the next month
tha Insurance company received
the proofs they required, and had
handed Mrs. Brown her five thou-!

strongly opposed to this.

"It will last for years! Before
that you will be married and
leave me all alone in the world!"
She closed the conversation with
a flood of tears which effectually
silenced Betty.
She had another scene when
ihe resumed her neglected danc
ing practice. Her mother came to
her room one morning and found
her going through her routines.
"Betty Brown, have you no
heart!" she exclaimed. "Your poor
father not cold In his grave, and
you doing thjse wicked dances
again. It Is like dancing on his
coffin!" She burst Into her ever
raady tears.
"Mother. it was father who
took an interest in my dancing.
He would not want me to neglect
it and throw away all the money
he spent on it! I'm not heartless.

"You blame me for being sorry

One Sunday, some eight or nine

and she did not like his looks. It
seemed Incredible that her father
had liked a man of his type. He
was meticulously dressed, and his
manners were so perfect as to
seem affected; but he showed such
a genuine interest In them, and
seemed so kind, that she was un
certain. His call was soon over, but be
fore he left he assured them that
he was glad to be of service to
them, and left his card with her
mother. He also insisted that Mrs.
Brown not give herself over
grieving. She was a young woman
and must go on with her life. He
was sure Mr. Brown would not ap
prove of her crying so much.
Betty looked at his card. He
was an investment banker, which
re-assured her of his standing in
the community. Her mother was
critical of her father s lodge mem

relaxed, my aching throat was soothed and the whole thrilling adventure just seemed a

the country. He took them pasta
pretty subdivision two miles out.
He said he had bought a farm
there and cut it up Into city lots
and sold it through the real estate
firm whose name appeared on the
few unsold lots.
He had already made almost a
hundred thousand dollars out of
the transaction, and had many
lots left. All he had Invested was
twenty thousand dollars, and had
sold lots long before the mort
gage on the farm had come due
Mrs. Brown and Betty were
both very much impressed with
his story of the transaction and
the fact that father had such
wealthy and influential friend.
Betty thought of asking him for
a position In his office, but decid
ed to wait until her mother was
not present.
A week later Betty came home
to find Mr. Brainard bad taken
her mother for another ride. When
her mother returned she was all
aflutter. She had discovered the
reason Mr. Brainard was so sym
pathetic was because he had lost
his wife about a year before, and
so was able to sympathize with
her. He had asked her if he could
not come around and talk to her.
