Aunt iwrcas Mallard, my own blessed
sister from Cliff Bridge that I thought

I had forgotten her ! But she's been
in St. Louis once every month for a
year hunting for me- "
"And only ran you down this time,
by a sample of pomegranate edging, '
a mellow voice with a suggestion of
red apples: flowed from the little front
room. -"Wilsons are thicker than
yellow Jackets in preserving time
I've chased a hundred of 'em, if I

"It was that, Jac," twittered Aunt
Barbie, whose little peaked face was
in a rosy glow. "Sis' Dorcas hoped
she might trace me out by it this trip;
she took it to Therise Dupuy's shop,
and the good soul had that edging
on hand - that I'd sold her, and she
told Dorcas who made it, and where

left me the -sixty acre farm that be

and an orchard and trees and a
flower garden! We're going to live
in the country and have real black
berries and milk, and kin-folks "
The. reedy, voice being evidently
threatened by a tide of tears, the
comfortable, mellow tone swept in to
the rescue. .

queline caught the two plump bvowu
hands that were making' a wild diva
for the little, bonnet with the lihw
asters,' and, laughingly kissed the faca
whose placidity had been utterly rout
ed by motherly anxiety; "your boy's
all right, Aunt Dorcas; he's at Madam
Dupuy's this minute." i
