"P'raps," admitted Chris, without enthusiasm. "But she is sure to want a big show, Trevor." "Leave that to me," he said. "I promise you shall not have that. We will get it done early, and we will be at Kellerton for luncheon." Her eyes shone. "How lovely! And the boys, too and Bertie?" He surveyed the eager face for a few seconds in silence.

The woodchuck kept working away from his hole, lured by the tender clover, but, not unmindful of his safety, lifted himself up on his haunches every few moments and surveyed the approaches.

A look of surprise came to the face of the Lieutenant as he surveyed the card in his hand. Jack was prepared for the name he read which was that of Lionel Clarke.

In a wonderfully brief time the waif had arrayed himself from head to foot, and coolly surveyed himself in the long mirror that stood upon its rollers in one corner. "Pshaw! Ain't I a guy! But but it's sort of tasty, too. I wonder what the fellows'll say! Wait till they see that feather and feel that velvet! Cracky! then you'll hear them howl! I wonder what time it is?
