Meeir, In tha 8chwenckton home, whara aha la boarding, la altogathar unlike tha girl who maata St Croix clandestinely. 8ha la tha taachar In tha neighborhood school, of which Marvin Crelghton, St Croix' brothar, la superintendent. Meely learna that Marvin waa to have married hla soueln, a titled English lady, but, believing aba waa attracted by tha Crelghton wealth, had refuted tha alliance. It la tha rumor that St. Croix la to take Marvin's place and marry tha English girl. St. Croix' jeal ousy Is aroused by Meely'a report of an aged auitor for her hand. Tha girl cleverly decora hint Into admitting ha has no Intention of marrying her.

CHAPTER IV Continued 11 Tve been held op on tha road and robbed!" he announced, his voice weak with fatigue. "May I im jour phone to report to the police?" A (tunned (Hence on the part of the four occuranta of the kitchen met this statement and request Meely staring with wide-open eves, her band pressed to her fnst-beating heart ; Nettle's face faint first red, then pale; Mr. Schwenckton trembling and pallid; 8 usle unmoved. But It was 8usle who broke their stupid silence. "Bo you see, Sam, he ain't still runnfa'! A little hysterical squeal of laugh ter from Meely brought the young man's eyes around to where she stood by the table clad In a kimono, her hair down her back tn braid. 8he was glad she wss not dressed nor mally, for In her tailored school suit with her hair done up around her held, she was so transformed from the country bumpkin of ber voile frock trimmed with artificial flowers nd streaming ribbons that the ex treme contrast would have betrayed ber hopelessly as masquerader. For the man leaning exhausted against the kitchen door was 81 Croix CrelRhton. "Bow did you get here so soonr quavered Mr. Schwenckton, too ab sorbed In his own quandary to see the flash of startled recognition with which his visitor's eyes met Meely'a. She hid succeeded, at an Instant's no tice, in assuming the look of bovine dullness which bad so effectually dis guised ber ever since she hsd known him. "Am I Is this Sam Schwenckton's formr exclaimed the amazed young man. "I'd no Idea where I was, the road's so pitch dark 1 I've been grop ing my way for a half hour to find house where I could telephone. That," pointing to the lamp, "waa the first light I saw In Ore miles t" "No, not five not more'n two," Mr, Schwenckton's shaking voice correct ed him. "How do you know? Is this Mr. Schwenckton V asked 8L Croix, for the farmer, without his coat and hat and necktie, did not suggest to him bis automobile companion of an hour go. "It Is," Mr. Schwenckton heavily ad mitted. "And you, now that I see you In the light, I rekonlze as the younger Mr. Crelghton! XI, yl, yl, yll" Tea, I am In mess I" responded St Croix, Interpreting the farmer's exclamation as sn expression of sym pathy for his plight. "May I use your" "If It's only your watch yoo want It ain't no need to phone. Ilere It la I" Mr. Schwenckton, with shamed, avert ed face, held It out to Its owner. St Croix, amazed, took It "Ton caught the thief? But bow? Do tell me I I never was more taken In 1 lie seemed the most harmless, kindly old simpleton" This time It wss Nettle who gave little hysterical aqueal which ' brought the young man's eyes, for an Instunt, to her rosy, eager face, 7 J "Meely I" Mr. Schwenckton sp ' pealed, "you tell him how It was I Me, I couldn't get the words together ; for to explain such a bewilderment 1" Meely was appalled. The Kcbwenck tons were accustomed to hear her speak good English ; St Croix had of course never heurd her talk anything but the IVmixylvunla Dutch dialect 1 "Nettle," she murmured, "yoo tell bin i" Nellie, shy, but all too willing to bold the young god's attention upon via of tm W r m herself, eagerly assumed the task of explaining her poor father's unfortu nate mistake and before she was halt through her narrative, they were all laughing except Susie; and even she was feebly smiling. "What gets me pupplexed," said Mr. Schwenckton amaxedly, "la that me and yoo, Mr, Crelghton, neighbors since you waa born a'ready, though Ave miles apart and not seeing each other often (I ain't really laid eyes on you since you was college boy, except to pass each other In our cars) but that ns we could ride together near eight miles yet and not rekonlze each other" "I'd have known yon In your farm clothes, I suppose, but" He did not explain how unnatural and unlike himself the farmer looked "I've Been Held Up on the Road and Robbed," He Announced, His Voice Wsak With Fatigue. to blm in bis "store suit" with a col lar and necktie on. "It's a good thing we're neighbors that know each other or tbla here thing mightn't look so funny, but wery serious!" Mr. Schwenckton gravely opined. "I didn't know," St Croix said sud denly, when Mr. Schwenckton's abject apologies bad been accepted, "that yoo had three daughters, Mr. Schwenckton ; I thought yoo hsd only thought right I got only two." "Oh." St Croix nodded, "then this young lady isn't your daughter?" Ills nod Indicated Nettie, but as she snd Meely were standing together, Mr. Schwenckton misunderstood him. "No, she's only a distant cousin, come to school to teach here." Teach? Why, she looks too young I Too csn't tell, these days, can yoo, bow old girls arer Meely realized that bis look of amazement almost of consternation, was not at all for Nettle's youth ss a teacher, but for the awful Kngllsh with which the children of the dis trict must be Instructed! Nettle was delighted that no one but herself, as she supposed, per ceived bis mistake, for It was won derful to have Mr. 8t Croix Crelgh ton think ber old enough snd "smart" enough to be a school tescher I Thank ful she was Indeed that Meely didn't speak in and claim the honor. It was obvious to Meely that St Croix waa even more concerned than she was that neither be nor she should by look or word reveal to this family tha relation In which they stood. Mr. 8chwenckton offered, now, to get out bis car again and take Mr. Crelghton home, but the young man IIX'IX'I'XXIIIIX In Splendor, Venice In Venice of the Sixteenth century luxury and splendor surpassed all bounds; never before at any time nor In any city were religious ceremonies, victories, the conclusion of peace, the visits of foreigners, or the marriages of Illustrious persons, celebrated with greater pomp snd magnlfleencv. Those In the occupations of cloth makers and drapers reaped huge fortunes, for on nearly every gala occasion miles of rich new fabric were used snd visi tors to the city were rendered speech less by the matchless spectacle. There was a great rivalry among the nobles to see who could appear in the processions In the most expensive robe of gold and velvet while the richness and the hangings from bulcony and protested that If they would allow hlra to telephone home, one of the Beech lands chauffeurs would be here In a short time with a runabout While he whs telephoning, Mr, Schwenckton ordered Nettle to make some strong hot coffee and got out some doughnuts and pie, ' Hut what, Meely wondered, would St Croix think of the teacher's being naked to do this Instead of the daugh ter of the house? She considered swiftly what would be her best course to avert suspicion on both sides. To get across the kitchen to the stairway and run up to her room? Mr. Schwencken would be bound to stop her and Insist that she stay snd have coffea and doughnuts with them, and If he spoke to her at all, St Croix would notice bow differently ha ad dressed her and Nettle. To remain here, however, was more certain to In vite exposure. And yet she was afraid to go away for fear of what might come out In her absence. Nettle, as she bustled about making coffee and setting out cups snd sau cers, saw, with keen chagrin, how Mr. Crelghton's eyes kept turning toward Meely and never in her direction. And the expression on hla face furtive, hungry, Infatuated I Was this. Nettle wondered, a case of love on sight? She was greatly puisled, for In her opinion Meely "looked a mess" In that sloppy kimono and with a "plait" down her back. As Mr. Crelghton bung up tha re ceiver, there waa a quick movement In the room Meely making for tha stairs. "Ach, Meely" began Mr. Schwenck ton. "(Kd night," she Interrupted, rush ing up the steps before he could stop her but not before she caught In St Croix eyes the evidence of the con flict in his mind a passionate protest against her going, mingled with a fear of ber presence. Upstairs In her own room, while she prepared for bed, she bad the exciting suspense of wondering whether they were talking about ber; whether St Croix had noticed ths kimono she had on, a Japanese embroidered silk thing that a county school teacher would hardly own It ahe were what she should be! Tee, this kimono could be a "give-away." "Well, when this sort of thing could happen It was evident that she could not much longer keep np ber farce. She must bring things to a climax as soon as possible; beguile 8t Croix to lay bis cards on the table; force bis hand for a show-down. The sound of the cabinet organ In the parlor below ber bedroom, and Nettle's shrill voice singing. Interrupt ed her thoughts. Nettle wss invari ably called upon by ber father to en tertain "company" with her musical accomplishments of organ and voice, and of course such distinguished com pany as Mr. St Croix Crelghton would hsve to be favored. Through Nettle's lungs and fingers the entire family found their one and only ar tistic expression. CHAPTER V At breakfast next morning Meely warily watched the faces around the table for Signs of newly awakened suspicions of herself. But she found nothing unusual tn the demeanor of the family. Nettie chattered excitedly about the elegance and "swellneas" of Mr. Crelghton's stylish clothes, bis won derful white bands, the wsy be said his words "He says "hofr for balfl It sounds awful pretty and genteel that way I And, ach, the manners he's got I The wsy be held my chair for me to set I Say I" It beggared words. "But I always ssy," ber father spoke In, "that I don't think so much of manners morals Is so much mora Important" "Gimme manners I" Nettle defiantly affirmed ber choice, "Morals and manners," said Meely, "can go band In hand they're not mutually exclusive I" Meely bad often noticed that ber use of a word of mora than two syl lables Invariably awed the family into a prolonged silence. She broke the present lull by broach ing a subject to Mr. Schwenckton that was weighing on ber mind, "llow often do county superintendents visit a school, Mr. Schwenckton T "Ach, about once In so often." Yes, but bow often r "Not so wery often. Now and then." "But I mean," Meely patiently ex plained, "how far apart are "now and then.T "Well, pretty far apart Too see, he's got too many to wlslt to come often.
