her engagement before midnight on

aunts estate, to which otherwise she
will fall heir. The time is growing
The fun began at once. They were
a noisy young lot, there was racing
and chasing o’er Canobie Lee, there
was guying and flirting and petting
and all the modern substitutes for
Shakespeare and the musical glasses.
And beneath it all the under-
current of excitement, wondering
what Connemara meant to do.
Late that evening she had two
sessions, one with each of her chos-
Bing was first. They walked
down the paths to the rambler ar-
bor and sat there, while he pleaded
his cause with real eloquence. He
was a perfect courtier, anti his man-
ners were more than perfect. He
rould rise at the appearance of a
lady, without looking as if he bad
lust heard the first notes of ‘‘The
Star Spangled Banner." He could
Uolti her cape for her without the
r fleet of hanging out the Monday
wash. He was intensely modern,
up to date, and a little beyond.
"Of course, you’ll marry me, my
Cayenne Fairy Queen.” lu* exulted.
"We arc each other's own, twin
halves of a perfect soul made one,
development, our psychic——"
"Cut it out, Connemara!" called
Poppy Glenn's shrill voice as she
and Dicky Bird intruded them-
selves upon the scene.
Others followed, and before them
all Cayenne Fairy gave her ultima-
"I’ll decide this matter myself,”
she said, as they all flung advice at
her at once. "Tomorrow, I'll run
down to New York, and back, in
time for dinner. If I get my hair
bobbed while I’m there, it’s ’cause
I mean to marry Bing. If I come
hack with my hair as is, it's a sure
sign Salt is the man."
Cheers greeted this speech, ami
there was a sound of revelry by
night that dismissed for the time
being the subject under discussion
The next afternoon Connemara
went to New York. The whole
crowd went along, but she went
alone into the hairdresser’s par-
Her going did not necessarily
mean a boh: she was as undecided
as ever when she advanced to the
desk to keep her appointment.
She had arranged by telephone
that she was to have the time, and
if she concluded at the last minute
not to have her hair bobbed, she
would pay for the time and keep
her locks intact.
Hie lady at the desk smiled and
waved her to an appointed cubicle
where pretty bobbed-haired girls
let down her auburn mass am!
brushed it out.
Then the man with the shear*; ^

remembrance of the picture in

really I don’t yet. But i'll decide
tomorrow, of course, and i'll—I’ll
let yon know.”
"GoodI If you decide against me,
don't bother to forward the in-
formation. But you won’t—you
can t. Oh. my little Connemara,
nobody could love you as I will—
as I do. Star of my soul-"
"I know, Bing—I know. But

If 1 decide on you, I'll have my
hair bobbed tomorrow, and if I take
him, I won't. So you'll know.”
Carrington went reluctantly, and
Adams came to the arbor, where
Connemara had promised him an
interview. •■<+vomegr ••
It was a stormy one. Salt had a
temper equal to Connemara’s own.
and the two struck sparks.
"I shan’t make love to you," he
declared, "until you say you will
marry me. Why should I waste-
kisses on a girl who may be an-
other’s wife? But Connemara,
don’t, I beg of you, don’t make the
mistake of acepting Bing Carring-
