N the afternoon Mn. Gh
Kay and I, In our thin
nest muslins, went out In
the motor. W whined
up Fifth avenue for aer
eral "blocks" (aa aba
called them), turned Into an txpenalrt
looking side atreet aud stopped before
oe of the most enormous bulldtitf I
rer saw In my life. It seemed only
half finished, for the steel columns of
fts skeleton were still visible around
the ground floor aud the street before
ft was still cluttered with bricks and
boards and rubbish. In the hallway
ten were working like active animals
to an Immense cage. Suddenly from
among them I saw emerge a beauti
fully dressed little girl foaming with
fcce frills, led by a trained uurM In
a gray and white uniform. They were
actually tein let out of the lift, which
had swooped down with appalling
wlftness by h man lu livery
"Good beavers." I exclaimed, "what
queer place for a child and its nurse
o be In."
"My dear girl, they live there," aald
Irs. Ess Kay rather scornfully. "Tnat
Sirs. Harvey Itichmouut Taylour'a
Bttle Rosemary with her nurse."
"People live ou top of tho.se poles
Bke Jack In a toaustalk!" I exclaimed.
As 1 looked through the hallway up
prang the lift oace more, fierce and
awlft as one of the rockets which I ,
ased as a child to be afraid might
strike the angels. A minute of sus
pense aud It swooped down again with J
two girls lu it 1 felt as if It were
thing I oughtn't to be seeiug some

"For goodness sake, don't say 'flats'
to nlargnret Taylour," exclaimed Mrs.
Ess Kay. marshaling me into the
amiuotli skeleton. "Over here, only
aotnmou people live in flats; our sort
Wave 'apartments.' "
"It's just the other way round with

"Tou English ore so quaint in some
