You ccidd hear trw scufainjj: of his old
ljt as be went to and fro in the passage.
Mrs. Eififielfs cthr boarders, tho Holmes
family, h2 Ixjen waiting round hungry
for half an hour. They wore slow, silent
people, even to the little boy and girl,
who, with hair "slicked" down close to
their cheekbones, the upward turn of
the eyes and rather flat noses, had a
Mongolian oast cf countenance. When
the bell rauy Miss Carver came in with
that irritated pinch of the thin lips they
always wore when dinner was late. But
as Mrs. Bissell kept her for a dollar a
week less than any of her other boarders
the privil?ge of open complaiEt vfes
taken away.
The jroaag doctor occupied the head of
tho table, and Anna filled her mother s
place with easy assurance, as if nothing
ever went wrong in tho Bisseli ettahlhh-
ment. It was a shame, lIis3 Carver
thought, for Anne to look as cool and
unruffled as ice cream whilo her mother
wa3 stewing over the kitchen fire. And
then she was so undeniably, so exaspr
atingly pretty." Her auburn hair peo
ple called red hair rod when. Miss Carver
was young rippled m a mass across her
white forehead and down the slope of

dazzling connexion and dark hazel eyes.
dancing in tho light of innocent mis
chief. She talked all the time, as if tho
light fkw of her girlish chatter could
cover up tha deficiencies of the table ser
vice and the irregularity with which tho
courses cimoio. Miss Carver, intrenched
in aggressive silence, felt that Anne was
a sham and wondered how far she would
succeed iu pulling the wool over the
young doctor's eyea.
But tho doctor hud no starch about
him. He socmod to find some amuse
ment ia the diEicultiea of the situation.
He made himself thoroughly at home
and told so many funny storie3 about a
healthy old town where ho had tried to
establish himself, and had been starved
out for lack of p&tients, that Miss Carver
fomid heroelf laughing until the tears
came under her glasses. Tho Holmes
children were grinning from ear to ear
and stretching tlieir liplcss mouths like
india rubber bands over the doctor's
funny storiea The tabto grew eo merry
that tired Mrs. Bissell in the kitchen
stopped to listen, while the old man, put
ting his brown, crooked hand up to his
good ear,' did likewise.
"He'll be popular," said Miss Carver
to herself as she went slowly up stairs.
"Hell make friends as easy as water
run3 down hilL Father always said we
must distrust easy popularity. I do
hope he'll see through Anne Bissell. If
her mother had any judgment with the
girl she wouldn't let her throw herself
at that man's head."
Miss Carver spent most of the after
noon spying cut of the window to see
the doctor's ofdee furniture come heavy
mahogany and rosewood, all the best
and handsomest; desk3, chairs, cabinets
and nicturea, implying tho cultivated
and rather luxurious taste3 of a young
man of pretty good length of purse.
Miss Carver opened her eyes when she
remembered the depths of poverty to
which he had declared himself reduced
by the unnatural hea!thfulnes3 of Ket
tletaa. Guess he's extravagant, she
thought to herself, as she tied on her
bonnet at nightfall to go and call on her
particular friend, the Widow Harkaway,
and, though the widow was deaf of one
6ar and partly blind, before the nest
night the whole of Littkjfield knew tho
young Dr. Tibbets was a humorist; that
he had becsi frozan out of Kettletas by
the longevity of the people, and had
come to Littlefield wjSiat ny visible
means, but withalarga amount of hand
some office furniture, and that Anne
Bissell well, it is easy to conjecture
what was whispered about Anne Bissell.
The ofSce was all in apple pie order
when Jtlisfi Carver reached home at tea
time. Tho office door stood open, and
there was tha doctor with his coat off
arranging his medical - cabinets and
whistling softly to himself. Mrs. Bis
sell had put new muslin curtains to the
windows, and Anne had filled a vase
with mos3 roses for the center table .
those precious roses she cherished like
gold an attention Miss Carver never
had received in all the years she had
lived in Mrs. Bissell's house. ,:
- "The sun ia going to rise and eetxa
his head," thought Miss Carver ja3 she
took her way up to fcer room, smelling
the tea biscuits from the open kitchen
