She had been brought up with Puritan ri^dness 7dnd sought to mold Myrtle’s mmd,/eYea as her own had been farm­ ed, foi ihe rigid cast of conventionality. At/eighteen Myrtle had never had uu:^of the^childish diversions, and the urgent of her paternal grandmother, ^(^th- this new lore of Halloween, was like the visit of a fairy godmother. It was the first time she had seen her fa­ ther’s mother since, as a child of four, she had been brought west, and. al­ ready ■ the kindly old lady had oofiir, pletely won Myrtle’s heart, ' 'The revelation of the Halloween mys­ teries was the most important disclo- sui^yet made, and Myrtle threw her- selfVwith interest into the idea. Her grandmother lamented that there was not time to prepare for a Halloween party, i but it was agreed that Myrtle should prove her fate by the well test. Wells; were few, but in the orchard was at welled spring, and this, it was ^decided, would answer the purpose. Myrtle had never, had a sweetheart. ^Sweethearts for very young girls were ^ frowned upon as being frivolqus, and ‘ talk of love had been rigidly discour- \'Oged: At the time even her mother ■(^otild not • prevent Seth Haskin from, bliislimg redly under his tan .when ho : jffii^|:^d to encounter Myrtle, and, he had heen ref used, permie- inaJie the -srefelsly -can, -wnicU In. ‘■Uta-fe'seetloBi -was iJie' preliminary dec-. IftjUhtlon of more serious‘Int^tion, the ,^r,w a s mbre acutely conscious of his pre§once than of the few ojtner men she met jn town or on her weekly visit '■to .chpreh. '■ Her grandmother, a bom matchmak­ er, had already sensed the situation, andiiif Myrtle’s mother had known that the old lady had found opportunity to drop a hint to Seth her passive ac­ quiescence in this frivolity would have “become active opposition. As it was ishe argued that since Mother Prentiss stay was to be short it would be possi­ ble to regain her lost ground after the old lady should have returned home. In John Prentiss his mother found Ian able ally. He gleefully recalled his |own Halloween celebrations and in­ sisted that he could still duck for ap­ ples with the best of them. »‘N e^ year,” he shouted, a regular party, mother, felt so 3 'oung in years.” He bent aj over the tub to plunge his rud^y after the elusive! grimly regardinj form'ance, shook her head In disap- iproval. . 1 But Prentiss was too absorbed In his 'fun to notice the head shake, and he insisted upon trying aU the tests he knew. Almost before they knew It the clock struck 11 and then half past, and Myrtle, shivering deliciously over the adventure, stole softly through the orchard to the bubbling spring. There was no moon, but stars span­ gled the sky, and their light made It bright enough to see her reflection in the little pool. Obedient to instruc­ tions, she leaned over the placid sur­ face and began to repeat the verse her grandmother had taught her. Her heart stood sfoll' as she heard the ap­ proach of footsteps, but her blood t i o s ^ lir horror when two men took th.efo stand on the other side of the .hedge and began to talk of'their plans. te Ixain will be alooig in about ifhMy minutes,” said the first. *T bet she gets smashed up Some this time.” !, » A m tr m r n : ; r . o™*.
