She, too, wanted new dresses; she could hardly endure the grace and costliness of Connie's garments, when she compared them with her own; but there was something in her sad little soul also that would not let her be beholden to Connie. Not without a struggle, anyway. "I don't want Connie to give me things either," she said sulkily. "She's never been the least nice to me.

"It is theatrical, like everything Connie does," said Mrs. Hooper severely. "I beg that neither of you will copy her." Nora walked to the door opening on the back garden, and stood there frowning and smiling unseen. Meanwhile Joseph followed close at Connie's side, directing her, till they passed through various crowded streets, and left the railway behind.

Pee-wee blurted out. Crackey, I thought I'd die. "What do you know about that little water snake," El Sawyer said. Then he shouted, "Bully for you, Skinny!" I said, "You'd better look out, you'll get yourself in trouble." "What do I care for the Elks?" he said. "That's all right," I said; "Connie's got Skinny copyrighted, all rights reserved."

Alice had a kind of uneasy foreboding that Herbert Pryce would think a title "interesting." Meanwhile Nora, having looked through an essay on "Piers Plowman," which she was to take to her English Literature tutor on the following day, went aimlessly upstairs and put her head into Connie's room.

Eichard was living Miss Connie's brother. He was near fifteen years older and he died in South Africa, poor lad! Ah, when he was killed it nigh broke the Colonel's heart.

The way of it was that Mr. Max's mother died when he was but a tiny and Mrs. Lisle, Miss Connie's mother, about took him for her own. He's fair lived with them. Many's the time he and Miss Connie have run in here for their tea or to dry their feet. You see I was parlor-maid at the Manor before I married Trott. That was when Mr.
