The above conversation took
place in the drawing-room of El-
wood, the home of Mr. Johnston.
Lola’s mother, Mrs. Johnston,
and Beatrice’s father and mother
were dead. Beatrice lived with
her uncle, Mr. Johnston.
Mr. Johnston, the two girls
and their maiden aunt, Miss
Johnston,. were dhe only occu-
pants of tne house.
Lola waa a high-tempered,
spoiled beauty. She had black
dusky curls, brown eyes and red
Her cousin was entirely her
opposite, she being s small, slen-
der blonde with long, golden
curb, dreamy blue eyes, and a
mouth like a cherubum.
Lob burst into their room, ex-
claiming, “Oh! Beatrice, papa is
going to aend us to boarding-
school, and I for one am not
going.’’ Are you?
Why, certainly, if Uncle Rob-
ert wishes it
Well, Beatrice Ross, you have
not the back-bone of a fishing
You are a little mink.
Just think of two girls, fifteen
and sixteen, going to boarding-
school when we should have gone
to college last year. Well, any
way, if we go I shall scare the
old maids to death and leave in
four days after we get there.
And of course you are going to
Oh. Lola! Have vm:

Yes, hut we shall do it ex-
In three days they were on
their way to boarding-school. As
they arrived quite bte in the
season their room was not quite
so good as the others, but they
were satisfied. All went well for
two days. During the next dav
the girls wrote to two of their
cousins, inviting them to the
boarding-school, but telling them
they must not mind what the
matron does or says, for she will
act as if she doesn’t want them
there so the other girls will
not get jealous.
But in reality they had not
said a word to the matron*
Lola, says Beatrice, here is
where we have some fun-
That night Lob and Beatrice
watched Miss Susie Hamilton,
the head matron, lock the school
room door and hang the key by
the side of it
About twelve o'clock they got
upand~weutdown to the school
room, stole all the books and hid
them up in the attic under some
They both exclaimed: “No
more school for a week.’’
Before retiring they lied a
string to the door bell and
brought it into their room. About
twelve o’clock they pulled this
string, which caused the door
bell to ring violently, awakening
everybody in the house. Some
of the girls and matrons got up
to see who it was, but seeing no
one they thought it the trick of
some mischievous boy.
During the rest of the night
the head matron did not sleep
About 2 a. m. she was awak-
ened by the rattling of chains.
She looked toward the foot of
the bed and saw two figures clad
in white. She began to screa.n
and the ghosts vanished.
Lola and Beatrice just had
time to run to their rooms, take
off their sheets and run out
In an hour all waa quiet again.
The next morning there were
the last pupib in the room. They
found every one excited, for the
books were gone.
Every one was questioned, but
of course no one knew anything
About four o’clock that eve-
ning Lob and Beatrice were sit-
ting in the parlor reading, when
they heard the door bell ring
and beat the maid to open the
door, exclaiming, “Why. come
right in. We have been watch-
ing an hour, but of course we
forgive, Don’t forget what we
Well, of all the impudence, ex-
cbimed the matron. Lola, Beat-
rice, “what do you girls mean?
What will Mr. Johnston say?”
and he gave me orders not to let
any one see the girb. Young
men you may leave here at once.
Oh! of course^ Migg Susie, we
won’t get insulted. Lola told us
all about it
We know you don’t mean it
We are not supposed to pay any
attention to what you say.
By the way, girb, there is a
dandv show in town, of course
you will go. And. Miss Susie,
won’t you go? I certainly will
not go, and the girls are not go-
Come on girb.
Young men you may go.
The girls followed her, looking
very angry, but Lob was doing
some hard thinking.
Once inside their room Lob
said, “Beatrice, I’ll tell you what
we will do.” Now, don’t say we
won’t, because we will. Lola,
please don’t get us into any more
trouble, for Miss Susie is going
to give us a good lecture any
Well, I can't help that. I am
going to write a note to Cousin
Richard and throw it over the
About 8:30 Miss Susie went up
to the girls room to give them a
But alas! They were
gone. She sat down and wrote
to Lob’s father to come at once.
The next morning Mr. John-
ston arrived at 10 o’clock.
Miss Susie did not tell the girb
she had written Mr. Johnston.
He seemed very much vexed
and told the girb he had come
to take them home so he could
send them to college, where they
wanted to go at first
Miss Susie told them she had
found the books and knew they
went to the show. She told
them she was sorry they were
going but if they didn’t like
boarding-school it was best they
should go to college.
On the way home every one
was silent. At last Lob broke
the sihnce by saying: “I told
you we would not stay but four
days at ooarding school.”
Mr. Johnston smiled and said,
“girls will have their way.”
