May, with Prince, went over Into the
churchyard and found the tbie little
Mones In a row. She knew they must
be the right or.es, for there was a big
ger stone, with the Inscription, "Frank
Kennedy, beloved spouse of Rime Ken
iitily." upon It.
The names on the three little stone
were Emellue, Frank, Jr., and Olurlssi.
Weeds and tall grass had begun to
sprout about the little, lozenge-shaped
atonea and about the taller one.
While she was thus engaged, a tall

"You're Mr. Stagg'a little glrlT I've

"Car'lyn May Cameron," she correct- j

Uncle Joe. He Is my guardian, and he
had to take me, of course, when nay

"Indeed?" returned the gentleman.
"Do you know who I am?"
"I I think," said Carolyn May,
doubtfully, "that you must be the un

"No, I am not. Though our under

It was a startling bit of new philoso

"I think he's a very nice man," said
Carolyn May suddenly. "Aud I kep'

In great 'fllctlon. too, I am sure. He

"Huh, so he does," grunted Mr.
S'agg. "He's "most always in mourn

I "Do you s'pose, Uncle Joe. that he
looks up enough? It does Just seem
to me as though poor Mr. Drlggs must
always be looking down Instead of
looking up to see the sunshine and the
blue sky and and the mountains, like
my papa said you should."
I'licle Joe was silent. Aunty Rose
said, very briskly for her:
"And your papa was right,
May. lie was a very setisiblt
have no doubt."
"Oh, he wus quite a wonderful man,"
said the little girl with full assurance.
It was on the following morning that
school opened. The Corners district
school was a red building, with u
squatty bell tower and two front
doors, standing not far up the road be
yond the church.
Miss Minnie Lester taught the
school, and although Miss Minnie
looked very sharply through her
glasses at one, Carolyn May thought
ahe was going to love the teacher very
Indeed, that waa Carolyn May's at
titude toward almost everybody whom
she met. She expected to love and to
be loved. Was It any wonder she made
so many friends?
There proved, however, at the start,
to be a little difficulty with Miss Min
nie. Prince' would nj remain at home.
He howled and whined for the first half
of gnnday morning's session ai
Aunty Rose confeesed, almost driving
her mad. Then be slipped his cellar
and tore away on Carolyn May's cold
Into the school marched the dog,
having drawn the staple with which

bole of the tree In Mr. Stugg's back
Mlsa Minnie was both alarmed and
angry. Some of the little girls shrieked
and wept when Prince pranced over
to Carolyn May'a seat.
"If you do not shut that awful dog
up so tTmt he cannot follow you here,
Carolyn May, I shall speak to your un
cle, Mr. Htagg, about It. Ugh, the ugly
beast I Take him away at once 1"
So Carolyn May's schooldays at The
Cornet a did not begin very happily,
after all. She had always loved and
been loved by every teacher she had
ever bad before. Rut Miss Minnie
seemed prejudiced ugulnst her becauie
The little girl felt badly about this,
but she was of too cheerful a tempera
ment to droop for long under the pres
sure of any trouble. The other chil
dren liked her, and Carolyn May found
plenty oi playmates.
II was on the lust Friday in the
month Hie! aomthlBg happened which
quite 'hinged Miss Minnie's altitude
towards "that mongrel." Incidentally,
The Corners, as a community, was i'il
ly awakened from Its lethargy, and, Bfl
!t chanced, like the Sleeping Rtuutyi
and all her retinue, by a Prime.
The school session on iilday after
noons was always shortened
day Mr. Urady, one of the school trus
tees, came to review the school and,
before be left, lo pay Miss Minnie her
salary for the month.
Carolyn May had permission from
Aunty Rose to go calling that after
noon. Freda Payne, whom she liked
very much, lived up tho road beyond
the schoolhouse, and she had Invited
the little city girl to come to see her.
Of course, PrtMO had to be Included
In the Invitation. Freda fully under
stood that, and Carolyn May took him

They saw Mlsa Minnie at her desk
when they went past the schoolhouse.
She was correcting written exercises.
Carolyn May secret ly hoped that her
own waa much better thun she feared
Not for beyond the schoolhouse
Prince began to growl, and the hairs
stiffened on his neck.
"Whatever la the matter with you,
Prince?" demanded Carolyn May.
In a moment ahe saw the cause of
the dog's continued agitation. A
roughly dressed, be whiskered man eat
beside the road eating a lunch out of a
newspaper. He leered at Carolyn May
and said : a
"I guess you got a bad dog there,
ain't ye, little girl?"
"Oh, no I He's us'ally very polite,"
answered Carolyn May. "You must ho
1 Still, Prince I You see," she explained,
"he doesn't like folks to wear old
, Clothes. If If you bad on your Sun
day suit, I'm quite sure he would not
' growl tit you."
"He wouldn't, hey?" said the mini
, hoarsely, licking bis lingers of the last
crumbs of his lunch. "An' suppose a
feller ain't got DO Sunday suit?"
"Why then, I s'pose 1'rlnce wouldn't '
j ever let you come Into our yard If
hi was loose."
"Don't let him loose now, little girl,"
said the fellow, getting up hurriedly
mid eyeing the angry dog askance.
"Oh, no, sir. We're going visiting
up the road. Come away, Prince. I
won't let him touch you," she assured
The latter seemed rsther doubtful
of her ability to hold the dog long, and
he hobbled away towards the school
house. ! Curolyn May had a very pleasnnt
call Freda's mother even npproved of
Prince and It was an hour before the
two started for home. In sight of the '
school house Prince gave evidence
again of excitement.
"I wonder what Is the matter with
you now," Carolyn May begun, when '
suddenly she sighted what hud evi
dently so disturbed the dog.
A man was crouching under one of
the schoolhouse windows, bobbing up !
now and then to peer In. It was the !
man whom they had previously seen j
beside the road.
