Interested In the other Just how much Kate was Interested was something unsus pected Once Jack thought he knew but now all he knew was that he did not know When Jack suddenly disappeared from Kates perspective no one noticed his absence from the picture To most people Jack had seemed a part of Kates social background Some who had seen them together at Grand Traverse had advanced him to the middle distance But of the tore ground no one thought What happened in July was this The Wilsons were no more than firmly established In their cottage which looks over Grand Traverse bay than Jack appeared at the hotel which looks over them both That was not remarkable for all had beenI members of that particular I colony for years Then the day the picnic on the Point Jack Kate found themselves sitting at andI green fringe of the forest looking over the blue expanse pt the bay A hundred yards in front of them Mrs Wilson was gathering up the tablecloth and things There was a little sense gf

and lily stems of wire and paper You are a little unkind Jack she said gently The soft reproof more suggestive of tears than anger brought the story to his very lips He wondered how ho should toll It Then an old schoolboy trick came back to him Ho brought out his penknife Beside them was a little spruce and in the soft flaky bark he carved a heart Within Its Jlnes he dug deeply the Initials of two people The girl caught her breath and blushed n little which are the proper and CUll tomary things for a girl to do at such a timeThen ho told her what Was In his mind It left her a little panicstricken and she took the refuge her sisters al ways havo takenshe asked him to wait for his answer In such a case there Is but one thing for the man to do and that Is to wait until tomorrow But when a man is terribly in earnest he takes people seriouslyWhen I see this carving of yours again then we will talk about this JackIf you still think this way She thought she was putting him on a most proper probation It was only a womans reluctance to give up her freedom But he took her at her word Next day he wont away Back in town again at first he saw ImaginedI skiesIago All that six weeks he pondered the matter by lonely fires and over break fasts late and bad Then he resolved to end the suspense and still keep his word lOne day a young man whom the na three were satisfied was most

north the novelty of seeing trees In leaf and floe blooming was as pleasing as ft was unusuaL OnChrlstmlis afternoon when oth ere were home enjoying the bIg dinner with the family I was getting ready for a specIal holiday matinee I was not pleased with myself or wIth a profession that demanded ot Its members that they labor on Christmas day above aU othersand It was not with a particularly light heart that I dressed for my part But when the curtaIn went up on the first act and I made my entrance the welcome I received compensated for the dIsappoIntment L felt It was a specIal matinee arranged for the poor children ot the poorest quarter ot New Orleans and the en joyment of those childish auditors soon melted the dlsappolnment out of my heart After the matinee 1 had arranged with my manager that I would receive the little folks on the stage and the wIse man In hIs knowledge of childIsh hearts sent out a hurry order for candy and other thIngs that make Christmas a day ot cheer to kiddies At the conclusIon of the last act the stage was cleared and I held the roost unusual reception that I ever experl enced Clean as pine but with theIr lltle- bodies clothed In many cases Inoar ments ragged and frayed they came up op tho stage were Introduced and sent away after a handshake each with a box of candy I bave spent many other delightful and out of the ordinary Christmases on the road but none that afforded me more real satisfaction than the one In New Orleans MINNiE DUPltEE WORSHIP AT CROSS OF ICE Scattered Christian Tribes In Turkey Celebrate Christmas with 1- mprelve Ceremonies
