"And your real mother went away
when you were very youngf
"No, she didn't go away."
"Nor' There was a puezled note In
the pastor'a voice.
"She went out." Polly corrected.
"Out!" ho echoed blankly.
"Tea; finished lignta out."
"Oh. an accident." Douglas under
stood at last.
"I don't like to talk about it." Polly
raised herself on her elbow and
looked at him solemnly, aa though
about to impart a bit of forbidden fam
ily history. It was this look In the
round eyes that had made Jim so often
declare that the kid knew everything
"Why mother 'd 'a' been ashamed if
ahe'd 'a' knowed how she wound up.
She was the best rider of her tlme
ererybody says so-but she cashed in
by fallin' off a sicate wnai u.uu
no more ginger 'an a kitten. If you
can beat that!" She gazed at him
with her lips pressed tightly together,
evidently expecting some startling ex
pression of wonder.
"And your father?' Douglas asked
rather lamely, being at a loss for any
adequate comment upon a tragedy
which the child before him was too
desolate even to understand.
"Oh, dad's finish was all right. He
got hls'n in a lions' cage where he
worked. There was nothin' slow about
his end." She looked up for bis ap
. a lord's sake!" Mandy
groaned as the wonder of the child s
conversation grew upon her.
"An' now I'm down an' out," Polly
concluded, with a sigh.
"But this is nothing serious said
the pastor, trying to cheer ber.
"It's serious enough with a whole
show a-dependin' on you. Maybe you
don't know bow it feels to have to
knock off work."
"Oh, yes, I do," Douglas answered
quickly "I was ill a while ago myself.

with a touch of unbelief as she studied
the line, healthy physique at the side
of her bed.
" 'Deed, be was. chile," Mandy cried,
feeling that her opportunity had now
arrived, "an' I had the wors' time
a-keepin him In bed. He act jes' like
"Did he?" Polly was delighted to
that the pastor had "nothin' on

continued Mandy, made eloquent by
Polly's show of Interest. " 'What will

"Sure, repertory, different acia u

of difference in the big towns wbere

"Oh, I understand!" Douglas answer

say something new each Sunday."
"What kind of spiels do you give

had never had occasion to define his ef

"Well, thafa Jes' the same as us.
Polly told him, with an air of conde
scension, "only circuses draws more
people 'an churches."
"Yours does seem to be a more pop
ular form of entertainment." Douglas
answered dryly- He was beginning to
feel that there were many tricks In the
entertainment trade wnicn ne nau uui
mastered. And. after all, what was his
preaching but an effort at entertain
ment? If he failed to hold his congre
gation by what he was saying, his lis
teners grew drowsy and his sermon
fell short of its desired effect It was
true that his position and hers had
points of similarity. She was appar
ently successful. As for himself he
could not be sure. He knew he tried
very hard and that sometimes a tired
mother or a sad faced child looked up
at him with a smile that made the
service seem worth while,
