"Good morning!" came over the wire
so shrilly, Lester knew the speaker
was angry or in trouble.
Commonly one meant the other
when Edith Xorrys let herself go,
trouble came of it.
"Do you happen to know one
Baldwin?" she asked, the gaps be between
tween between words showing how she was
fighting with herself.
"I know two Baldwins Dab"' and
Pony. Which is it you're 'out, to
Ecalp?" Lester answered.
He caught a gasp then: "Two!
Impossible! There isn't loathsome loathsomeness
ness loathsomeness in the world to make two. Come
over right away, and let me convince
you I feel like saying things no lady ladylike
like ladylike telephone ought to carry."
Lester ran seven-eighths of the
mile between, but sauntered up to the
back piazza as though life held no
such thing as haste.
"It's about Merrilee, of course,
Edith began. "Why did Fate curse her
with that name besides giving her
feet that dance in spite of her?"
"I am not Fate," Lester said re resentfully,
sentfully, resentfully, as though she accused him,
his eyes the while twinkling under
Edith made a face at him. "Nor
much of anything else, I fear," she
said with a little toss. "Merrilee went
to the Street Fair yesterday I let
her. Her people were all going and
so wild over it, it seemed cruel to
keep her at home
"Right," Lester interjected.
. She ran on unheedingly. "I thought
it was so safe-r-her mother and three
big brothers, to say nothing of the

them, took all the eyes Mam had to

"Tell me. Riddles bore me," Les Lester

Edith glared at him. "Took her
into the public dance tent," she said.
'By and by all the rest stopped to
watch her then her shoes hurt her
he made her slip them off and dance
there before all that crowd, in just
her petticoat her slip rather, one I'd
given her pale blue lawn. Then he

That started all the rest she was

Again Edith glared. "Wait! The

at her people, too. The result is they

wretch as an added attraction to
his side show.. Think! She's only
sixteen! I can keep her two years
longer till she's eighteen, thanks to
goodness. I hesitated to have her
bound to me legally. Now I'm ever
so glad of having had it done."
"Better let her go," Lester began,
"straight to destruction," Edith flared.
He shook his head, saying, "No."
"To the fulfillment oi her destiny.
Here's her chance. To us it looks
smirched, even hazardous but it
may never come again."
"I will," Edith said slowly. "Mer "Merrilee

don't ask me not to hate that Bald Baldwin

Time's whirligig does, indeed, bring
strange revenges. Two years later
Mrs. Joseph Lester, born Norrys, sat
beside her husband, leaning forward
over the box front, intent to miss no
rhythm nor cadence of the dancer who
held a big audience spellbound. Merry
Morn she called herself.
"There's a great marvel," Lester
said, nodding toward a man below,
one beyond the middle age, rough cast,
roughly clothed, 'yet radiating rugged
power. "Nothing else would ever have
drawn Al Jenny from the Coye. I
hope his coming means no mischief."
For a second Merrilee was abso absolutely
lutely absolutely still, bathed in a rosy light that
gave her the seeming of a flower poised
for swaying upon a slender stem.
Slowly, slowly she drooped until her
head almost touched the floor," came
back with a sidelong unfolding sway,
and broke into pattering fairy steps
as though treading bending grasses.
Fast, faster, faster, she moved, slid
into weaving and swaying, flung up
arms, then bending forward called
voicelessly through cupped hands. The
house rang with applause, but across
the tumult of it came a keen musical'
shrilling: "Li'l gal, li'l gal, I'm
With the cry a rough-cast giant
hurtled himself over the footlights,
caught Merry Morn in his arms, and
set her high upon his shoulder. She
never danced again, except with the
winds, the grass and the fairies. And
her eyes took on a look of knowledge
and content, that still did not burden
the dancing feet.

Now that German is being ousted
from the curriculum of some of Eng England's

Italian may be inserted in its place.
Sjuch an alteration would have been
cordially welcomed by Gladstone. "A
favorite topic with Mr. Gladstone,"
writes the present head master of
Eton, "was the preference in English
