Sfee was feeling pretty woil. Yes
she had gone to Heed Colloge but
she had stopped for a number of
isons. Her sister Cecily was go-
Ing to college. Ho Cecily now was
In the sixth grndo at grammar
Grand iccepted i
Ann's entrance Into what Grand
called the world of commerce with
glrla-wHt-bt-gtrls expressions. It '
was so odd of the durllng. However
both Hosnlle und Grand believed
to their best friends ithe Cartnlcha-
ols who lived on the corner acroae
the street she and Grand felt even
more reluctance In opposing the
whims of their grandchildren than
they mhrht have ftlt In opposing
the whims of children of their own.
When Cecily In her senior year
at high school determined to o.utt
lifylt school and go at once to the
I ins. n 09s college to which Ann had
gone they again offered no ob-
jections. "Of course" Cecily said to the
peachy English Instructor who In-
sisted that surely she could wait
until after her grad .utlon "I did
hope to finish here and go on to
college It doesn't seam posdMrie
Jut now. Hut my Ulster Ann and I
are going to manage io that our
llfJe staler Mury-Kruncea can have
a college education."
Giand told Mr. Carmichaet that
same aitemoiin "Modern girls
upon my soul they seem monoy
mad. XU that I am criticizing nty
grnnddatightots. Hotter girl never
l.ved to Mess u man' declining
ycaiJ Hitter at heart that la." And
when Mt. Carmlchael had uggcsted
thit the girl with their salaries
might be able to help out a trlllo
at home. Grand had waved ges-
tures and declared
"Not a penny my friend Not om
penny. Tholr little cWc.ken teed U
their to spend as they like. Their
own for little girlish luxuries ami
extravagancies. I hope they are ex-
travagant with their poor little
moneys. It will make me fvtl ea trier
about permitting them to enter the
world of commerce rub shoulders
as It were with the herd. At the
time of my son's passing I gladly
undertook the care the support the
educatiun of his little brood. I shall
always so care for them. I shall al-
ways .-tar.port thotn." And Grand be-
lieved It. as he said It. he sincere-
ly believed It.
Hy tne time that Ann was earn-
ing $25 a week and Cecily J 10 a
week. Grand had retired from the
real-estate buslmss. Had. as he told
Rosalie and the girls decided to
leave the game to the youngsters

frcm college who wore willing to
stp on the other fellow's flngunt
to gain footholds of their own. He
could competo with thorn ; yes. Hs
would not sloop to do so; no. He
would now nnd at last devote him-
self to the field wherein he knew
his rent talents law the Held of In-
ventions. "I'll wager you $ 10.000" said
Grand to Ann. though neither U
thetn thut day had 10.000 cents ln
tho world "that at tho end of one
yoar I ahall have more to show for
my offorts than I would have after
10 years of this miserable kind
This seemed possible. It had been
moio than a yoar now since Grand
had mude even a small doul In ronl
estate. The reuson. not visible olth-
er to Ann or to Grand was that for
tho posit several years Grand had
neon disposing of the remnants of
his own lund holdings ut prices so
low thut he could find buyers for
them witli no difficulty. Other land-
owners wore unwilling to make
.these sacrifices; or. If prodded by
necessity they made them for
themselves without Grand's aid.
Grand owned nothing now except
tho family house and the Und upon
which It stood. Those he stated he
would sell at the sumo time tluit he
sold his wife and his grand
daughters. He made speeches about
It. His son and hU son's children
had been born there. (They hadn't
at all; but Grund's memory at 71
was falling.) It had stood through
the years in stress and storm an
over ready havon for him nnd h.s
that sort of thing. Hosalle getting
wind of the fact some way or oth-
er that there were uch things as
moitgngos had once suggested dur-
ing a trying month that they bor-

place. Grand sonslng perhaps the
