Pretty thing. Cheap, too. I know a good piece of satin when I see it. Funny it was not sold to-day. Will be to­ morrow likely.” 'Miss Thankful felt her desire to pos­ sess the bag increasing. “On your way borne? Let me tako your umbrella,” and they walked on togetber. ■Aliss Thankful had a decided liking for this one of the boarders, partly because he never forgot to show her the same courtesy that toe would show to Florence or any younger wo'man. And this is very gratifying to a wo­ man who has no claim to youth or beauty. ' H e was a timid young man, with a colorleas mustache and drab hair, who ^silly-dt ily it would aud sh6‘ 1 with a jerk, ’8 liked him. ,t 'Aliss Than! ■ Wheni they reached the boarding house she went very thoughtfully up to her room. Mr. .Tones had discoursed most of the way upon the ami'able qualities Florence possessed, all of which remarks she had heartily sec­ onded. lYhen she had lighted the gas, ■She sat down with the thoughtful es- pression st.'ll on her face. “I wontl'ir,” she said. “I do .Just wonder.

Miss Thankful? lie never 'talks much, but I suppose ho thinks a great deal. I used to tliink ho disliked me, he stam- ■merod so whenever I spoke to him, but I guess it was just because he didn’t feel acqua'inted.” And then followed a recital of Air. Jones’ say- After she had gone Aliss Thankful sat for a long, long time in front of itho grate, with sad dreamy eyes on the tiro. Sho was going over In her mind a time twenty-five years before. “lie was nothing like Air.

She felt old. This looking back at one’s youth has a tendency to make one feel old if it lies twenty-live years behind one. When sho was all re.vdy for bed, she oiiened tho’trunk and took out the party bag. Sho opened the door and listened, Fverythiiig was still in the dim hall. Florence’s room was only a few doors away. Mis.s ff’hankful slipped noiseless­ ly along, aud when sho reached the doiU’ she hung the ribbon over tho knob and as softly stole back. She had put no card in tho bag; tliero was no need. Florence would know who sent it, and then sho went to bed and to sleep. Tho next morning a t the dooi’ almost bet fill was dressed, and came flushed happy face. “'Oh.
