LIVERY ©IR HRW YEAR’S CALLS. “Girl*5) if you receive calla to-morrow, I have two commands to make— two positive commands,” repeated Grandma in a louder key, as if she thought we were all deaf. ‘’One is that you shall have no wine served. The other, that Horace Courtright shall not be allowed to enter this house.” And Grandma brought her hand down on the table with eta awful emphasis, causing the cups to rattle, and Cli to nimp off her chair almost. Grandma took no notice of that, only Stared very hard at Lins with her keen gray eyes, which made Lina wink very fast for nearly a minute. Then Grandma swept her stony gaze around the table on Oil and me. “I will give Elisa a list of the refreshments I shall allow you to have. Do you understand ?” ‘Yes’rn,” we replied in a weak cho- rue. ‘•Then why didn’t you speak ?” No answer. “Now I tell you, without further parleying on the subject—”(“I d like to know who’s parleyed,” said Gil, under her breath)—-“that I think I shall spend to morrow with Mrs Higdon,” continued Grandma. Faiut smiles twitched the corners of our three mouths. Good news indeed, was this—the promise of a whole day of freedom We did not love Grand ma Graham, nor her overbearing ways, and secretly rebelled against her irou-bound rules. But she had brought us up, we three orphan girls, in her rough, blunt fashion, and remain under her protecting wing we must, until each had entered her nineteenth year. And, oh, how we longed for that day of deliverance The next morning Grandma put on her bonnet and shawl, and weni. as we supposed, to Mrs. Rigdou s. And all promised well for our New Year's calls But before she started she said, pausing at the parlor door, ‘ Girls, leave amount to two rows of pins 5’ but then he was extremely good-looking; had ttS air A a man of lash ion ; wax a „    .

Ihfih aa we were So ( ii and I regarded him and Lina aa first-class hero and heroine. So with ripples of sly laughter, and vying with each other in making nonsensical speeches, we adjourned to the back parlor where, the refreshment table stood set out with a goodly supply of dainties, the crowning poiut in our estimation being the smuggled wine. Horace hadn’t even touched the edibles, when Cli gave a sudden scream, and turning quickly around Oh, horrors! there stood Grandma right in the center of the front parlor Her presence was as unexpected as a thunderclap out of the clear heavens. “Quick !” cried Lina in a shrill whispef, “Horace, quick I ’ and she wine as this.” Here she gave another malicious thrust at the door. ttifl* f “ Elixa has fairly outdone hem lf in salad is tip top Another capot Coffee.

This is the way she looked,” and I bent my brows and drew down the corners of my mouth, looking as grim and as like Grandma as possible This ipade us all laugh, and we grew highly Inldrious imitating Grandma— the way Grandma ^walked, the way Grandma talked, the Way Grandma ate. We thought we were having such fnn saying these contemptible things, and making jokes at Grandma's expense. We shonld not hate 60 demeaned ourselves hut for Horace’s encouragement and sympathy, whom we considered almost one of the family. For was he not Lina’s affianced lover? and the match violently opposed by Grandma— all of which we considered very fine aud romantic. A? the saying Horace “didn’t for your nap “ Nap -child? You don’t suppose I’m going to sleep while you’re receiving urday afternoon. A calls! No indeed I I want to listen to preaching Riverdale yonr brilliant conversation, your gay sallies of wit and lively repartees.” and Grandma chuckled disagreeably to herself. We looked at each other in conster nation.for we had been looking forward to the moment that Grandma’s usual afternoon nap would give Horace a chance to slip cleverly out of tbe house. I “ Sit over hear by the window,Grandma.” said Cil anxiously, for her chair seemed to be getting closer against the door, and we feared Horace would be jammed to death. “ You are extremely considerate,” replied Grandma, but I’m very comfortable where I am. Go ’tend to your callers. There goes the bell again.” This time it was an old married man who lived across the street. Cil and I endeavored to murmur a few commonplaces. Lina openly sulked, and Grandma sat like a sentinel guard over a squad of prisoners. “ Such stupidity ! ” remarked Grandma. as our guest retreated “It docs seem to me I’d try to get up something original to say before somebody else comes.” These judicious sentences that fell so freely from Grandma’s lips were about as conducive to conversation as a wet blanket. Lina shook her little fist at the back of her head, and Cil and I could only keep from bursting into tears by making hidious faces ic the same direction. “ I’ll have iomethiog to rat,” she said suddenly. “Bring me some re freshfnents, girls.” “ Won’t you sit by the table, Grand ma ? ” we anxiously inquired “ I’ll sit right where I am,” she em phatically replied. “ Give me some wine—^no use to hide that—I saw it ! We were stunned ll she saw the wine how could she help seeing Horace? But if she did,she ignored hi* existence altogether, and sat and sipped her wine and jammed her chair against the door, dealing out slurs, innuendos and spiteful remarks by tbe dozen about that identical individual. “Better stay with yonr old Grandmother.
