There th conversation ended, bo
cause a red-haired girl came hurriedly
Into the silting room. She blushed
furiously as she heard her name.
On the morning of the Fourth of July
Louisa May xvas very happy as she
stood before the small mirror in her
bed room and gave the last touches to
her toilet. Her challis had made up
very p. -Oily, and her mother had de
lighted her by an unexpected gift of
a pretty pink ribbon sash. She had
never before had such a beautiful hat,
and there xvas but one thing to detract
from her satisfaction with her ap
pearance. "If I only didn't have such a mop of
red hair!" she said to the mirror. "If
It was mouse-colored, like Amanda
Iane's, or a regular briudle like Lucy
Trent's, I shouldn't care. Hut red! It
Isn't as red as it used to be, though.
and I shall xvear my hat while I sin
that xvill hide It a pood deal.
There had boon few holidays in Lou
isa May's life, and never one so full of
promise of pleasure as this. She had
been to the village tho-daj before to
rehearse her song xvith Miss Hope, who
she found herself on the platform be
fore the audience that tilled every part
of the grove. The Chairman of the
day stepped forward and said:
"We will now listen to a solo, 'The
Star Spangled Hanner,' by Miss Louisa
At this some of the Orand Army
men set up a shout, ami Louisa May
walked to the froiw of the platform
with the large silk tlag she xvas to
hold while she sang.
The applause died away and the or
ganist had just begun !o play the pre
lude, when a boy shouted shrilly!
"Ked head! lied head! l'.ettcr look
out or the lireworks will catch!"
Louis j May's pink cheeks grew pal
lid. She opened her lips, but no sound
came from them. She xvas trembling
from head to foot. The Hag fell from
her hand down over the edge of the
platform. Then in an agony of em
barrassment she put both hands over
her face ad began to cry.
The boy who had called out "Hod
head:" suddenly felt a hand grip the
back of his collar, and he xvas jerked
from his seat by an irate little old
"I'll let ye know how ye call my
sran'daughter 'red head,' ye little sass

after the last lines, the applause was
deafening. While it was Mill at its
height her grandfather stepped to the
edge of the platform, holding the flag
aloft. When he could le heard he
called out Khril'y:

he hurried toward the platform aud
up the steps. A queer-lookins old man
he xvas, xvith long white hair aud
beard. He had on a stiffly starched
linen "duster' and bright blue jean
trousers. Hurrying to Louisa May's
side, he put his arm around her xx-aist
and said, soothingly:
-There, there, Louisy May! Don't
"Why. grandpa!" she exclaimed, and
Hung her arms around his neck, half
laughing and half-crying. His dim
xes had a strange light in them, and
his voice xvas not' steady as he said:
"I tell ye, Louisy, I don't know xvhen
I have heard anything that took suvh
hold of me as the xvay you sung that
grand old 'Star Spangled Banner.' I
want it to be the first song you sing
you mind that impudent little sass- j on your new piano. I'll play it, and
box! You sing your song noxx Come, -we'll sing it together,
grandpa xvill start ye off on it!"
The old man picked up the flag which
she had let fall to the platform, and
holding its staff in one hand while his
other arm was round Louisa May's
waist, he began to sing.iu a thing, wav
ering, but not unmusical x.piee:
"Oh! sav, can you see, by the dawn's early
What tso proudly we hailed at the tvi

He stopped at the end of these lines
and said gently to Iouisa May:
"Come, now, honey, you sing, too."
She had taken her hands from her
lace, and as she looked into the sympa
thetic faces of the people before her,
she felt her courage rise. When the
; old man began to sing the next lines

I and sweet, rose high above his own:

was to play the accompaniment on the
organ, and Miss Hope had said that
Louisa sang beautifully. She had a
very clear and strong x-oice, and she
