"I know more about a tomboy-a than a tomoya, my saucy friend," observed Nina, surveying her with disapproval "and I can be as cross about it as any Buddhist, too. You are, to express it as pleasantly as possible, a sight! Child, what on earth have you been doing? There are two smears on your cheeks!" "I've been crying," said the girl, with an amused sidelong flutter of her lids toward Selwyn.

The gods forbid that I should claim to hold the answer to the eternal mystery of woman." "Dear me! I ask for a photograph and he gives me a poem," she mocked, touching an electric button. "I try merely to interpret the poem." She looked at him under lowered lids with a growing interest. Her experience had not warranted her in hoping that he would prove worth while.

The kettles were frozen hard, and there was no water in the cabin with which to wash. But he did not mind that. Waiting for it to thaw, he sliced the bacon and plunged into the hateful task of bread-making. Cuthfert had been slyly watching through his half-closed lids. Consequently there was a scene, in which they fervently blessed each other, and agreed, henceforth, that each do his own cooking.
