seriously like regularly grownup men,
perhaps) fascinated me front the very

creeper. They looked as If th.y
thought a lot of themselves, and the
girls they were with had the air of
encouraging them to think It. I won
dered what kind of things they snld to
girls and secretly longed to find out.
It seems that In summer the cadets
leave Ihelr barracks and go Into camp,
which Is n time of year that the girls
who visit West Point and those whose
fathers are si a Honed there like very
much. Wo had a glimpse of the tents
from the long street of the olllcers'
quarters, nnd after we had visited a

Interested we strolled over to where
we could see t'ue little white pyramids
gleaming under the stars and stripes.
1 had been afraid that nil the cadets
would have gone away to Flirtation
Walk with girls, but to my joy there
were plenty left lu camp. On chairs
under the trees near by two or three
ladles were silling with some white
butterfly girls, nnd a crowd of cadets
were talking to them.
"There's a great pal of mine. Mrs.
Iurcnce." said Captain Colllngwood.
"She would love to know you, Ijtdy
Betty. lfc you mind If I introduce
you to each other?"
"See here, that means we shall te
hitched up with nil thnt lot of cadets."
Potter objected quite crossly. "What's
the good of wasting time?"
I hurried to any that 1 shouldn't con
sider il a waste of time, that I should
be delighted to u t Mrs. Laurence
and also a few sample cadets. If any
