a lovely green dress embroidered with
'many golden spangles, and a crown of.
pearls on her dark hair.

'"Will you art tit down?" she taid,
placing a chair for the visitor.
"No, I tliank you, good Setty; I
may not tit t am in haste. I came to
borrow a bowl of oatmeal if you will
be good (nough to lend it to me," said
the beautiful lady.'
"Certainly." cried Betty. "I am glad
