It was all very well to vow and pro
test that tho next time wo would bo
moro discreet, and that, whatever wo
saw or heard at Letty's, wo would
hold our tongues. But when tho next
time came, nnd sho went into hysterics
over Bob, nnd declared ho cared noth
ing for her, and never had, wo couldn't
help nodding ncquicsccnce to a friend
ly neighbor who suggested that our
sister-in-law was extremely sensitivo
and high-strung. Then it went back
to Lotty that wo said sho was a hys
tcrical gooso and absurdly jealous of
poor Bob; and then sho declared that
wo had no moro feeling for her than a
stone, and always had looked down
on her becnuso sho was a poor girl,
and sho should think a wifo had somo
rights, if sho didn't bring her husband
a fortune, as all tho Graham girls would
to theirs, if they over succeeded in got
tingany. Andso thero wo wero with tho
prettiest family squabblo possiblo on

experience: but though wo know Lct-
ty was a weak little thing, and all her
fondness for Bob taking tho shnpo of
absurd jealousy ovcnofhisownfainily,
wo could nover got used to it. Sho was
such a sweet littlo creaturo when ho
married her, soft-eyed and low-voiced,
and mccK as a iamb, appealing to us
over everything, from tho weddingcako
to tho form of tho ceremony. Wo
hadn't renlly minded it that sho wns
poor, for a tho urahams wero rich now,
twenty years ago thoy wero not, and
if Bob had been brought up liko a
pnnco, as heir to tho factories and tho
Htores and tho rows of tenant-houses,
w, his three elder sisters, had known
something of tho other sido of tho ta
pestry in tho -hard tunes when father
laid tho foundation of that fortune,
and though wo lived in a big house
now, and had our servants and our
carriage, and led society, in a way, in
tho littlo town, we nover meant to put
on airs. I think, indeed, wo wero hot
ter democrats than Lotty, for wo nov
er thought of these tilings, and sho
nover had them out ot hor mum,
and was supersensitive to anv ref
eroncotoherforniorcondition. Wo had
thought it Kiieh a pretty romanco
when Bob married her, picking hor
out of a mill accident tho first week
sho went thero to work, and falling in
lovo with her at sight, and taking no
end of trouble to got hor widowed
mother into something nico and quiet
nnd profitable, so that Lotty need
nover go back to tho mills. And
presently ho installed Mrs. Dent as
queen-dowager of tho homo to which ho
took Letty, and that was tho begin
ning of tho inischeif. MVs. Dent was
twico a.s suspicious as sho, and never
lot hor shut her eyes to the family dis
dain of Copliot ua's choice. Shu wns

queen-dowager of ours, and so per

Iiois to correspond, as our Pamela

Tho special trouble was that when
Letty got jealous kIio had hysterics,
nnd after Dr. Grey hinted that some
thing was tho matter with her
heart, of courso wo wero always
nnxiouB. Sho was very delicate,
that was truo, and when she was
herself sho was iu swcot and nlfee
tiomito as possible, and wo all vfettod
and .spoiled her. And then Bob would
walk homo from choir meeting with thu
soprano (nearly old enough to be his
mother), or sing duets with with May
iriemming (nnd sho engaged), or pick
up a tired mill girl in his buggy, and
thoro wus Lotty in tears, and tho
liousofihut up, and tho doctor sont
for, nnd Mrs. Dent on guard, and Hob
on his knees for sins ho nover dreamed
of, and wo indignant, and sure, sooner
off later, to show it and bo banished
from tho sick-room. Of courso, being

of hor, but between her prido and Lot

that had always been in the family;
but ho had to bo Harold, straight
out of a novel Letty had read. And
when wo called him Pet and Blossom
and Princeling, half to avoid that do-
testable name, halt because ho was sc
sweet, Letty declared that wo despised
her and her baby, and ho wasn I
worthy, sho supposed, to bo tho licit
of tho Grahams unless ho was called
Mark, and presently wo wero as badly

Wo laughed over tho trilles that mad

with only a block between us, sh

at Lotty, for wo wero reconciled now.
and sho had run in to show us how the
baby was learning to tako steps.
" J fiat must bo such a consolation,
said Lotty, flushing, and taking it
wrong, as I might havo known sh(
would "to Annie, I mean that sin

Sho swept up tho baby and was out
of tho houso while wo wero laughing at
her vehemence. Wo novor could got
into Lolly's feeling about it, I sup
poso. Wo thought by tins 1 11110, mar
ned two years, and sure ot our ntlee
tion, sho ought to take things more
lightly; but it was plain bho did not.
For sho talked so to Bob about th
certainty of marital shipwreck if a
rich woman married a poor man
though it wasn't all sunny sons the
other way either that ho nmdjj it hi'
duty to discountonnnco tho whole
thing. Ho sent Frank Truman of! to
tho west for n fow wcoks to look aftot
somo business for tho firm, and in the
nieantuueho brought down old Talbot,
senior partner irt the Tuckahoo mills.
where lie had a third interest, to con
sole Annio. I should havo thought
Lotty would havo liked tho othet
match bettor; but she scorned to think
that if Audio married the old widower,
who was as rich as all of us put to-
gothor, that would balance things
perfectly. And as Frank, when In
enmo back, was too proud to speak,
and nono of us felt sure it was indeed n
matter of lifo and death with Annie
and so inclined to let things take the
courso, wo wore presently in as prutt)
a snarl as heart could wish. Tueka
hoo was only ton miles oil, nnd Mr
Talbot used to drive over once
or twico a week; and when ho wns not
at our house ho wns at Bob's. Ho was
roally rather nice, though being twenty

Pam was gracious to him, too all nn

that plainly tho Tnlbot bark was on
And it was whilo we were nil in this
tangle that Harold was lost.
It was all from tho French nurse, as
I said at onco to Pam; and I h'idsnid
often bcfoio that no good could coniu

her tongue before ho could his own.
It was the quocn-do wager's idea, I was.
sure, and I had no patience with it.
But Mario seemed a good girl, and sho

distracted, to tell us, that Mario and
Harold had gone out, as usual, a lit
tle before ten that morning. She had
given orders to keep hun out in the
prelty little park until lunch tune, and
sho had delayed lunch a little when
they did not come, and then she had
font one of tho servants after them,
and she came back with a distressing
tale that nurso and child had been seni
to tnkotheten-o'clocklrain for North,
ington. She had bought her ticket, so
the agent said, chattering nn indistinct
(oniething to him about Monsieur
Graham and a message. Now North

miles off, and ono could go cast, wt-.sfc
or south from it, and of course wo
all harped to ono conclusion. 1 near
ly bit my tongue off to avoid saying.

Annio needed nono of his support. Sho
had a look in her eyes ns if Letty's
jealousy just made her faith in some
one deeper and truer, a sort of ten
der pity every time the poor child
shrieked out some fresh arraignment
We had a miserable aftcrnoon.thouh,
thanks to an anodyne, we quieted poor
Ietty after a while. Thero wero con
sulfations nnd plans, and messengers
sent of! on vague traces which the police
fancied they had found. Practically
wo wero waiting for Bob, in tho hope
that with him Harold would appear,
and at Inst, nisi as J jetty was rousing
again and asking for news, Annie, at
sight or sound of something, rushed
down the avenue, and then thero was
a cloud of dust, and Talbot's team,
which ho had sent to tho station on
the chance of their coining on the five
o clock express, appeared. Thero sat
Hob, holding the baby, and Frank and
Marie, sho very tearful and ho very
triumphant, wero on tho back seat.
In another instant Bob was down,
and we wero all about him, nnd tho
nueen-downgcr would have torn Har
old from his arms if ho hadn't been
"No, no: let mo give him to his
mother," ho cried. "Poor, poor Letty!
to havo had such a fright!" Thero
was a shriek above as ho rushed into
the hall, nnd Jjotty camo running
down. Thoy met half-way and it is a
wonder tho child wasn't smothered
between them. But it wns pretty as a
picture, Bob half kneeling, and Letty
leaning down, all in white, and her
golden hair streaming, and tho light
of the stained window on tho landing
naming inem 111 crimson.
"It was my fault, darling," woneard
Bob saying, "but I never dreamed of
your having such a fright."
And Lotty answered wildly
no, it was mine to doubt you so.
Oh, how could 1?"
That was all very well as sentiment,
but not precisely explanatory. Wo
had all that presently, however, and
simple enough it all was. In tho city,
the day before, Bob had met his old
friend Cnrthnme, theportrait painter,
just out tor a lew days from iNew 1 ork,
and at sight ot him tho idea find Hash
ed on him that a crayon sketch of
Harold would bo the prettiest pos
fc'iblo surprise for Letty's comingbirth

"All right," Carthame had said;
"I'll do it for you, though I wouldn't
for everybody in such a hurry. Bring
the boy down to Northington to-mor
row, nnd I'll manage ir head for you
at anv rate."
So Bob had hastily arranged with
Marie tho night before, charging her to
tell tho queen-dowager. And hero
Mario dissolved in tears, and owned
that sho had met her her cousin that
same evening, and it had driven every
thing out of her head, and sho had
quite forgotten that part of theschenie
"If I had not been really obliged to
run into the city this morning I could
have managed it better, ' Hob went on
"But all I could do was to tell Mario
to bring tho boy down, and I would
meet her there, and I never dreamed of
all tho fuss, till nn hour ago thero was

Of course, when it was explained, it
seemed nothing at all. Wo laughed at
our agonies, our frantic telegrams, our
messengers, and tho rest. But I must
say it had results that wero far from
unimportant. It was really a lesson
to Lotty, and she has behaved better
since; it brought about an understand
ing between Annie and Frank, and,
"Bcally," Pain said, delighted to bo
able to abandon gracefully her aristo
cratic objections, "after what has hap
pened, wo must lie glad to have him
ono of us. Only I'm sorry for Mr.
Talbot. I suppose ho understood that
day," sho went on, innocently. "He
hasn't been hero sinco, I notice."
"It is about all you havo noticed,"
laughed Lotty, "or you'd know thero
was no end of lamentation over him."
"Oil, 1 daresay he'llconsolehimself,"
Pam said. "Of courso at this time of
life and I can't say I over supposed
him in love with Annie."
"I should hope not, indeed," Letty
said, in high good humor. "As for his
consoling himself, if you take it that
way, hos done it already. If you
hadn't been half blind for the last
month, you'd havo known what
brought him here. Mamma wouldn't
think of it, at first, sho so hated tho
idea of leaving nieand inarryingagain."
(Oh, indeed!) "But bo's boeii so urg
ent of Into" (sinco ho found liocouldn t
got Annio), "and after all she's just a
nico ngo for him, and it is only ton
milos away, and such u lovely house,
and mamma is so sensitive over her
position hero" (to bo queen dowager
isn't enough. I suppose), "and so hist
night sho said yes.
Well, that did tako our breath away
for a minute; but when wo camo to
think of it, wo saw how nicely tho quoon
dowager had played her cavds and it
wasn t so amazing. And it was a
hlossing for Boh. Mrs. Talhot hits
something else to ihink of now, and
