j press" her would have been u
OKLA. I statement of the case.
Mr. Duncan, with a responsive twin-
kle ln his eye, for the first time really
noticed the girl. What a ridiculous
looking little creature she was, any-
way, with her freckled face. Irish nose,
and two black plaits of hair braided bo
tightly they stood out from behind
i her ears and curled up at the ends.
After the stilted meal was over and
1 Eulalla, notwithstanding her fourteen
years, sent at once to bed. Mrs. Raw-
lins volunteered some Information re-
garding her troublesome charge. Her
poor romantic sister, it appeared, had
disgraced the family by eloping with
an Irish comedian, with whom, Mrs.
Rawlins was unwillingly bound to ad
mlt, Bhe was not actually unhappy,
even though such a marriage did
shorten her life. The husband, too,
died, and for three years their one
child had been living with them. Here
Mrs. Rawlins folded her hands piously
and expressed the hope the good Lord
would not hold her responsible, at
least not altogether, for the miserable
failure she had thus far made of
things; that at least he would give
her credit for having in her poor way
tried to do her humble best.
Mr. Duncan, who was a very un-
conventional parson, was just about
to give utterance to a most conven-
tional remark, when a crash was heard
from the floor above.
"It's some of that crazy stage scen-
ery Euly's been rigging up In the loft.
I'd better go up and see if she ain't I
burled undef it. She don't always go 1
to bed when she's sent."
With an air of resignation, turning |
to one of indignation when well out or
sight, Mrs. Rawlins sailed off disclaim- 1
ing any help from the men, who of- 1
fered to accompany her.
Mr. Rawlins half took Ills niece's i
part. "She's smart, that girl, in spite I
of her nonsense," he said to Mr. Dun- I
can. "And she'd have the gumption, ,
every time, to pour sand down a rat j
hole." Now that his wife waS out of j
hearing as well, Josiah Rawlins felt
he could speak naturally again.
The next time Robert Duncan saw
Eulalia was one afternoon when, re-
turning from a visit to Deacon Spear,
he caught a glimpse of a lithe little
figure dancing down the road. Had It
not been for the right-angled pigtails
and stiff gingham apron he would
have thought her a veritable wood
nymph, such was her grace. The girl
stopped ln pleased surprise, but
swinging her books around from her
shoulder she found two or three had
slipped the strap.
"I suppose I'll have to find'them,"
she said, ruefully.
Then a sudden Impulse seized her.
"Cqme," she said, "I'll show you
how to dance!" She took the preach-
er's hand. He was very nimble—still
very young—and before he knew it he
had fallen in with Eulalia's steps and
the two were skipping along the road
to a distinctly frivolous and very live-
Duncan was enjoying himself im-
mensely, but he was glad a few yards
brought the books to view. Had any-
one happened along the position would
have been a difficult one to explain i
away. They came to a sudden halt, j
both laughing heartily, the man more !
so than he had done since he left col- 1
lege. Then, with remembrances to 1
the Rawlins, he parted with Eulalia. I
On the way to the house where he
was staying Robert Duncan thought
about the little girl. He was wasting 1
no sympathy now on Eulalla—at pres
ent she did not need it. She was like
a rubber ball, the more force with
which it was thrown the greater the
rebound. If she was not allowed to
sing and dance and laugh in the
house she could go out into the sun-
Oklahoma j shine. But when Eulalia grew a little
older where would be found the affec
tlonatc vflsdom needed to guide this
evidently wilful soul? Not in the un
cle. who was chiefly interested in his
niece's precocious cleverness, nor in
the aunt with her ridiculously affected
ways and narrow religious viewr.
