'cause the feller that apologizes is the one that gets the benefit. Now I'll tell you what I'm going to do." Mr. Wopple's eyes shifted nerv- ously. He was like a little fussy dog that barks and threatens when he Is the only one in sight, but subsides cringlngly If a powerful dog chal- lenges. When it came to a contest of wills, Air. Wopple could measure himself with remarkable but silent accuracy. "First thing," she continued, "I'll have Lettle replace that window. Then I'm going to put up some wire netting 'tween the two yards. That'll keep FI1 on his side. Next, I'll see that Lettle never trespasses or Inter- feres with you. If she ever does, you let me know, 'thout taking m b law into your own hands. Understand?" "Well," returned Mr. Wopple slow- ly, "yes, of course, if you'd ruther meddle----" "I had," interrupted Mrs. Penfleld briskly. "It'll suit me fine to be given a chance on any such occasion. I can think of pleasanter Jobs, but I aln't stopping at nothing that'll help Lettle. You see, Mr Wopple, the chief reason you and "I are having this con- versatlon is 'cause we got dlfffrunt Ideas about human rights. You tlfink children ain't any good unless their famllies would make fine reading in a cyclopedia, and I b'lieve the Lord never'd let 'em be born so promiscu- ous as constantly happens If the main thing wasn't what becomes of 'era after they get here. 'Course they in- herit a lot, but you can bend it or shape it In any direction you like. "Ain't no use in your looking down on Lettie 'cause you don't know where she colne from. Chances are .her family tree's got as many live branches on it as yours has. Ther ain't much dlfffrunce In families :hen you come right down to it--no ore'n there is in individuals. The main diff'tunce in folks Is in the amount they'll confess. "Now, what all thls comes to Is: Lettle's going to have her chance. I've elected to give her breathing space and what help I can, and I'm trusting the Lord to right the human nature In her that's got a bit twisted. But there's one thing you got to keep In mind. That Is, there ain't nothing I won't do to help that child grow into the fine woman she's capable of making. She ain't going to be fa- vored, and she ain't going to be pea- tered; but she's going to have her chance.'- - Her right hand, resting on an old post between the yards, clenched sud- denly till the knuckles pressed the younger a blood from the skin; her fine eyes needs help, glowed with unusual fire; but her even him as color and the mild curve of her lips of some- showed how superbly she had herself It is : In control. folks are Mr. Wopple was paralyzed--not by to look for the words, but by the fact that they to help 'era had been spoken b this woman whom done.

Before his astonished eyes her ex- pression changed as swiftly and com- pletely as the picture on the screen when a new slide Is Inserted In the lantern. Her fngers uncurled; her body relaxed; the fire in her eyes blended Into a warm glow; her lips curved back from her white teeth in a smile that was nnexpectedly youth- ful. "Guess you can see this is a serious matter with me, Mr. Wopple. And you're dead right thinking I haln't got any man to lean on. Uncle Jerry ain't 'round 'nough to be counted on steady, and as long's you'd noticed yourself that I need a man's help, I thought mebbe you'd be that man." Mr. Wopple coughed. "%Vhy--er---o' coUl2ge--" "That's the idea," she encouraged. "You could do it so easy, you know, living so near and knowing Lettle al-i ready--and ev'rythlng. You could ! kind o' praise her when she's doing well, and make a little suggestion now and then that'd start her in the right direction." Apparently Mr. Wopple's shoulders grew half an inch broader. "She's sure too much for you, Mira' Penfield,'" he admitted" "and as long's you stand up for her through thick and thln,-blamed If It don't make me mad. But now't you've come down from your high horse, I don't mind helptn' out what I can." "Oh, thank you," she acknowledged with feeling.

With a sunny emile she went back to her own steps. For several min- utes she had had an eye on Dick Chase, who had come around the house and was patiently waiting for the colloquy to be over. "Mrs. Penzte," he began directly, "I'm in the devil of a fx." "Are you?" Her tone was ympa- thetlc, but there was in it no tincture of surprise. She was accustomed to crises. Life in The Custard Cup pro- duced them In abundance. "Come right on in," she invited cordially, "and we'll talk it over." "No, I can't sit down. I'm supposed to be on my Job, but I dropped In for a minute, because Lorene wouldn't be around. I didn't want her to hear of It." Dick Chase paused, as If "She's Going to Have Her Chance." hardly knowing where to begin on the perplexity that had brought him to Number 47. Mrs- Penfield waited in silence. Presently the young nan's gravity was broken by a whimsical smile. "Say, Mrs. Penzle, you're wltllng 1 should marry Lorene, aren't you?" "My dear boy," she smiled "you've got my consent and my bless-[ lag. I believe you'll make Lorene happy; and if you don't, I'll be 'bout the first feller on your trail." "You bet I'm going to try to save you that trouble," he said, with re- turning seriousness. "But the ques- tion Is. Will I ever get Lorene?" "My goodness, you don't mean you've quarreled " "Thunder, no. That might be sim- pler. There'd be a chance that we might get out here under the pepper tree and make It up. No, It's Mrs. Percy." "But, surely," she expostulated, "surely you aren't taking a nervous, selfish woman so seriously. Hasn't she an income of her ownT' "Yes, but it's small.

"'It Is a reasonable re- quest. I was rather figuring that you'd take one word andmake ten out of it. Well, you know, Mrs. Per- cy's thought up various silly schemes to make it unpleasant. And now it's her right side. She says she's par- tially lost the use of it." He broke off, staring gloomily at the wall Mrs. Penfield watched him, but said noth- Ing. "You can see what that means," he continued. "Constant care, and she can't afford a nurse or cemapanlon. Only a stony-hearted girl would leave her; only a brute would ask the stony-hearted girl to do it, either. Tears; upbraiding ; general chaos !"
