1 tated vengeance dire.
A sudden whizzing sound through
the cherry-tree, and a .oung gir'
leaped to the ground with all the
agility of a flying equirrel. She
straightened herself up proudly,
and gazed unflinchingly at the wom

observer might have gees that
"Dolly" was a tall, slender maiden
of about twelve or fourteen years of
age, haying liquidbrown eyes,
creamy complexion with great
patches of crimson in the cheeks
and a thick braid of chestnut hair,
all Riving promise of a splendid
beauty to come.
'Well, aunty," began Dolly, after
a pause, "what did you want''
"What did I want !" jerked out
the ancient dame, viciously, "I
wauted you to come down out of
that tree ! Don't you know you are
too old for anything like that T It's

"'Ladylike !' " repeated Dolly, cu
rioualy. "What for? '
" 'What for,' indeed V her aunt
snapped. "Why, if you're not lady
like, no gentleman will have yoa.''
Dolly tossed her head defiantly,
with all the offended dignity of a
young woman ten years older.
"No gentleman will have ine ! '
she exclaimed. "Very well, then. I
won't have Aim !'
This little incident little as it
seems to ns was a turning-point in
Dolly's life. Not one of her yoonsr
friends, or older oues either, could
guess the reason why she so con
stantly reiterated the assertion : "I'lj
never marry 1"

asked Dolly, saudly.

was married when I was seventeen".
"Has he tried to make bereelt
ugly ever since !" thought Dolly.
"Did she think getting married at
terenteeu success euough for a lite
time! Well, it she did, I don't''
Then aloud the girl declared : "I
don't care whether I spoil my pros
pects or not. I value my health
aud my freedom.''
"Well, anyhow,'' cried her auut,
driven into a corner, "you needn't
wear white dresees to climb trees.

"I'll wH.tr o-ilico.''

Dolly ; "and just brcue I'm not

oeases to be common. If 1 work,

"How you talk ! ' laughed auntie.

It's time you began to learn some-

sewing if you marry, you can'fc
expect to hire everything done."
"Do you meau to say," detnuud

man wants me, he wants me tor the

he wants to keep me ignorant so
that I'll overrate him ? " Now, 1

were startled to hear that Dolly
had left her aunt's house to woik
her way through college. "dhe

one day by one busybody to auoth

for a girl to try to be like a boy.

that of a young mau.

youth, "She's too far above me."

sister, "she's too good for any man
She says she doesn't like tbe idea
of trotting women out like horsey
for men to inspect their points and
pick out the ones they like or can
afford to keep. And don't either."
The busybodies shook their heads.

is spreading, fleaven only knows
where it will end. You mark my
words she'll disgrace ns all 1"

crouy, passing an egg-shell china

had ouly known it, her ueice repre,-.

iugtons and Van Eltlughausens
were anxious to conciliate, while
they had never heard of Mrs. War
ren heiself at all. They would have
recognized her maiden name Sharp
lean, however, because it was the
Sime as that of her neice, and there
is but cue Sharpless pedigree.
Mrs. Warren owned a small farm
in the neighborhood of Philadel
phia ; a property inherited from her
Quaker grandfather. The old-fashioned
mansion still stood, unspoiled
by any so-called "modern improve
ments," with its long, low, pictur
esque, graytone walls, its broad
piazza, its slopiug roof and quaint
dormer windows. Oatalpa, wild
cherry, ash and maple-trees over
shadowed the hou-ie, while the ex
tensive grounds iioted in lilac bush.

Ou the evening of Dolly's party
this old. fashioned shrubbery and
the dropping branches of the an-
cient trees were illuminated with
Chinese lanterns. Within, the great
parlors were decorated with trailing
vineH aud plumy ferns brought from
the woods. Who, then, would uo
tice that the gorgeous-flowered
Brussels carpet looked a little shab
by, or fail to see the leal elegance
of tbe massive rosewood and'mas

portraits display aiisfogratic noses?
And if any guest, arriving a little
eaily, should chance to stay into
the immense, low-ceiled dining
rcooi, might he uot see that tbe
tiny sliver spoons each had a real
crest ? In snort, the whole house
looked what it was a museum of
artistic antiquities,with just enough
of modern touch to give it life and
the boose is rapidly filling,
with town and eouutry guests, old
and young, wise and otherwise,
well dressed and ill. When Mrs,
Warren appears, those who know
her Are amazed at the change. Her
black silk gown has been made a
robe of elegance, by its gracefol
drapery improvised from a lace
thaw I. Her long neck is wound
round with a voluminous mass of
white tulle, caught with a diamond
star. Her gray hair is banged and
pulled, and surmounted by a square
of real point, trimmed with loops of
paletpink ribbon. For Dolly had
"Yes, auutie, you can wear lace.
And'pink looks pretty with gray
hair. And gray hair is lovely when
it's properly dressed."
And Dolly herself! Well, her
dress was a poem iu creamy crape
aud pink roses. She herself was a
poem, iu her slender figure, her
chestnut hair and ber perlect com
plexion just what any observaut
person might have expected of the
girl of twelve.
"Well, I never 1' exclaimed one
of the old-time busybodies, adjaeN

And then a aort of a shadow crossed
