BY RUTH BELMORE ENDICOTT

Synopsis. Iler father and mother reported lost nt sen when the
Dunrnven. on which they had sailed for Kurope, was sunk. Carolyn
May Cameron Uannn's Car'lyn Is sent from Nuw York to her bneh
elor uncle, Joseph Stagg, nt the Coiners. Tlio reception given her by
her uncle Is not very enthusiastic. Carolyn Is nlso chilled by tho stern
demeanor of Aunty Hose. Uncle Joo's housekeeper. Stags Is dismayed
when he learns from n lawyer friend of his brother-in-law that Cnrolyn
has been left practically penniless and consigned to his enru as guardlnu.
Ctirolyn learns of tho estrangement between her undo mid his ono-ttmo
sweetheart, Amanda Parlow, nnd the cause of tho bitterness between
the two families. Prince, tho mongrel dog Hint Carolyn brought with
her, and tho boon companion of tho loneeomo girl. Is In disfavor with
Uncle Joe, who threatens to dispose of him, but l'rlnco becomes a hero
and wins the approval of tho Corners by routing a tramp In tho net of
robbing the schoolteacher.
A Sunday Walk.
Iteally If Prlnco had been a vain
dog his ego would certainly have be
come unduly developed because of this
Incident. Tho Corners, as a commu
nity, voted him nn ncqulsltlon, whereas
heretofore he hnd been looked upon as
a good deal of a nuisance.
After she recovered from her fright
Miss Minnie wnlked homo with Caro
lyn May and allowed Prince's delight
ed little mistress to encourage tho
"hero" to ;'shnko hands with teacher."
"Now, you seo, he's acquainted with
you. Miss Minnie," said Carolyn Mny.
"He's nn awful nlco dog.. You didn't
.know Just how nice he "was before."
Almost everybody went to church
nnd nil the children to Sunday school,
which was held first.
, The Itev. Afton Drlggs, though serl-ous-mlnded.
was a loving mnn. He
was fond of children nnd he nnd his
hlldJess wife gave much of their at
tention to the Sunday school. Mrs.
;Driggs taught Carolyn May's class of
little girls. Mrs. Drlggs did her very
best, too, to get the children to stny
to the preaching service, but Cnrolyn
Iny hnd to confess that the pastor's
discourses were usually hard to under
stand. "And he Is always rending nbout the
'Begats.' " sho complained gently to
Uncle Joe as they went homo together
on this particular Sunday, "nnd I

passages of Scripture mostly from tho

got It' about right there. Carolyn May."
"Uncle Joe," said the little girl, tnk
Ing her courage In both hands, "will
you do something for mo?" Then, ns
ho stared down nt her from under his
bushy brows, she added: "I don't mean
thnt you nrcn't nlwnys doing some
thing for me letting mo sleep hero nt
your house nnd ent with you nnd nil
thnt But something speclnl."
"Whnt Is the 'something special?'"
asked Mr. Stagg cautiously.
"Something I want you to do to
day. You always go off to your store
after dinner and when you come homo
It's too dark."
"Too dark for what?"
"For us to take a walk," said tho
little girl very earnestly. "Oh, Uncle
Joe, you don't know how dreadful I

morning, for he had to go to work

would go with me," the llttlo girl
added- wistfully, "Just this nfternoon,
seems to me I wouldn't feel so so
"Humph ! ' snld Undo Joe, clearing
lils throat. "If it's going to do you
any particular good, Car'lyn May, I
suppose I can take n walk with you."
It was a crisp day ono of those au
tumn days when the tang of frost re

efforts of tho sun to warm It

with his noso all greased and shiny
till the new skin grows bnck on It."
"Bless me, whnt these k!ds will dol"
muttered Mr. Stagg.
It was Just at that moment that tho
little girl and the mnn. becomlug really
good comrades on this wulk. met with
an adventure. At least to Carolyn
May It was a real adventure nnd ono
she was not to forget for a long, long
Prlnco suddenly bounded nway,
barking, down n pleasant glndo,
through tho bottom of which flowed n
brook. Cnrolyn Mny caught a gllmpso
of something brown moving down
there nnd she cnlled shrilly to tho dog

"But Hint's somebody. Undo Joe,"
Cnrolyn Mny snld with nssurnnce, ns
tho dog slowly returned. "Prlnco

"Somebody taking a walk, like Us.
Couldn't ho n deer," said Mr. Stagg.
"Oh," cried Carolyn May later, "I
seo It again. That's a skirt 1 sec.
Why. It's a lady 1"
Mr. Stagg suddenly grew very stern
looking, as well as silent. All the
beauty of the day and of tho glndo
they had entered seemed lost on htm.
He went on stubbornly, yet as though
loath to proceed.
"Why," murmured Carolyn May. "It's
Miss Amanda Parlow I That's who It
Is I" '
The carpenter's daughter was sit

She wns dressed very prettily, nil In

lady with the pretty roses In her

Ho stared straight ahead down tho
path without letting thcMlguro on tho

Hanging to Uncle Joe's hand but
looking longingly at the silent flguro

down to the stepping stones by which
they were to cross tho brook, when
suddenly Prlnco came to a halt right
at the upper end of the log nnd his

llttlo mistress. "Como here."
But tho dog did not move. Ho even

course, but at something on tho log.
And It was Just then that Carolyn
