They live 'down eas,t' in the country under conditions which I left so long ago that I have almost forgotten what they are, and the needs of a New York girl don't help me a bit. I've always worried through it somehow, but last Christmas 1 had a brilliant idea. I found what was cheap and at the same time nice, and what I was sure would please those country girls and make me quite fairy godfather among them. I intended going back into the country myself and wanted to mnke a good impression as knowing and doing the proper thing. "My Idea was silver bracelets. You know them. They don't cost much and nre n. very good thing if you have them in (moderation. A day or two before my departure from town I sought out a jewelry Mtore and examined bracelets. What girl could help being charmed by a silver bracelet? I saw bright faces smiling, as seven pretty wrists were held up to show the silver, and I am not certain I didn't dream of seven cousinly kisses of grateful appreciation. I pictured the proud nir with which these girls would go to church the and join In surprise parties-durinwinter; nnd ns I went on imagining different coils of silver for those wrists became entirely convinced that I had bad the inspiration of a lifetime in the way of present giving.

A cierk stood waiting for 1113 order. I told him to take tle seven and put them in separate boxes. He gathered them up nnd smiled on me. The idea of generosity in the way of Christmas presents seemed to please him. Before long he came back from the rear of the store with the bracelets. He had an unmistakably friendly air. Too friendly. I hate to have salesmen familiar. He handed the packages to me and in his friendliness forgot his place and remarked, in a conciliatory fashion: 'You arc going into it wholesale.' He seemed to expect an answer. I looked nt him. What business was it of his? I wondered what kind of trade they had. if buying seven bracelets was wholesale. It was prob-nblone of those inane jokes that shopkeepers persist in making. I. ignored bis paltry pleasantry and went away with my gifts. "Well, on Christmas morning I found .myself in the old Massachusetts place, and In due time played the part of Santa Claus to the seven blushing maids, for I didn't see why I should wait for gratitude to give me the full meed of proper cousinly salutation.
