“Would you like to try a genuine
friendship with one. Polk?” I asked,
and ugain struck from the shoulder—
with my eyes.
“Help! Not if you mean yourself,
beautiful.” he answered promptly and
with fervor. “I wouldn’t trust myself
with you one minute off guard like

straight In the face, and the battle of
our eyes was something terrific. I had
made up my mind to have It out with
him then and there. There was noth

courageous and true to my vow and

Deeper Than Shouldere and Ribs.
ENRIETTA’S calmness und.r
dire circumstances was a les
sou to both Polk and me. for
with two gasps that sounded
as one we both raced across the porch,
down the path and out to the road
where Polk's ruuubout stood by the
worn old stone post that hud tethered
the horses of the wooers of many gen
erations of the maids of my house.
But, prompt as our response to Hen
rietta’s demand for rescue had been.
Cousin Jam es was there before us. He
stood In the middle of the dusty road
with the tousled mite In his arms,
soothing her frightened sobs ugainst
his cheek with the dearest tenderness
and patting Sallie on the back with
the same comforting.
“Oh, Heuriettu. how could you nearly
kill your little sister like this?” Sallie
sobbed. “Please say something posi
tive to her. Jurnes!”
“Henrietta.” began Cousin James
with a suspicion of embarrassment at
Polk's nud my presence at the domes
tic scene. Polk choked a chuckle and
I could have murdered him.
“Wait a minute.” said Henrietta, in
her most commanding voice. “Sallie.
didn’t you ask me to take that pup
from Aunt Dllsle, 'cuuse of the phthisic
and keep her quiet while the kit got
a nap and didn’t I ask you if it would
be all right if i got her back whole
“Yes, Henrietta, but you”—
“Ain't she whole all over and clean?”
“Couldn’t nobody do any better than
that with one of them twins. I won’t
try. If I have to ’muse her it has to
be In my own way.” And with her
head in the air the Bunch marched up
the walk to the house.
At this Polk shouted, and the rest
of us laughed.
“Polk, please don't encourage Hen
rietta in the way she tn*nts me nud
her little sisters.” Sallie tagged be
tween her laughs and her half swal-
lowed sobs. “I need my friends’ help
with my children, uot to have them
make It hard for me. Henrietta Is de
voted to you. and you could Influence
her so for the best Please try to help
me make a real woman out of her and
