"When you ask your thirteen to dinner and one dies it must be horrid; and I should think your guests might might bring an action against you." She was holding the hand he had just put up to meet hers, which was round his neck now, and a thought suddenly struck her. "But the year isn't up yet, Ted," she said.

The opening of the present story finds Captain Wilson hailing Ted, ready to broach the subject and find out if the boy is willing or unwilling to undertake the mission: The boy saluted. He stood at attention while the captain studied him for a few moments. "Ted, boy, I come to you on very important business. Not as Scout to Scout, but as man to man.

I am not a dunce." "I rather think that is true. Anyway, prove it to us this summer and there is no one who will be gladder than I to take back the aspersion. Is it understood then? You have your house-party and when you come back you are pledged to honest work, no shirking, no requests for time off, no complaints. Have I your word?" Ted considered.

It was her only ornament, and she prized it as much as some ladies prize their diamonds, but she loved her young mistress more than she loved the ring, and her mistress, though dead, should have it. It needed polishing, and she rubbed it until it looked nearly as well as when Ted brought it to her from Jacksonville.

"When it has been fun and I don't suppose we'll ever see each other again in all our lives? For I can hardly come out to Melgrove now, can I, Oliver? And after you've had a quiet brotherly talk with her, I suppose I'll even have to give up lunching with Louise. And as for Ted poor Ted poor Mr. Billett with all his decorations of the Roller Towel, First Class Mr.

"Then I'll give it to him, if he can prove it is his, but I don't think it will ever be claimed." "How's that?" "Because the owner is a thief, and if he finds it is in the hands of an officer he will let it go rather than face an investigation. Besides, I need it." "Ted Strong, aire yer goin' dotty over them derned smell wagons, too?"

"Checkers we caught on the corner, and the other member of the gang, Dude Wilcox, got away. I guess it was him that rode off with the swag in the automobile, but where he went we couldn't get." "I can tell you about that," said Ted quietly to the chief.

Ted hurried to the house where Mrs. Dean was waiting for him. She showed how glad she was to see him. "Mr. Dean will be back a little later. He has been very busy." Ted thought he would wait with his news until later and merely mentioned some of the things that had happened. "Ted, dear," said Mrs. Dean, "I want to tell you that we are going to have a little stranger in this house, soon."
