It was unprecedented. Such a tiling could not be remembered in the Memzy of the oldest inhabitant. Fridays and the Fishman were one and in separate. Lobelia was making Strawberry Jam Rad the Rich Seething Maiss was at its most critical Point when the faint mind of the Ashman s Horn intruded non her ear. It startled her unaccountably. Gabriel s Horn itself could scarcely have surprised her More. Quot for the land she cried Quot that blah Blesson s Horn blow nor else i m Losin myi ear for music Bial blew sops fish Home and Thart makes it Friday today i be lost a whole Day clean out of this week. I guess i m Loson my faculties As sure As i am a Dill Quot a tie sudden remembrance of a Remote. Unfortunate Lull who had Quot lost a his faculties Quot came to poor Little in it Belia with crushing Force. Now and then it had loomed Over Hor before. She stirred the Strawberry Jam nervously striving to change the subject in Ber mind. Quot i be heard o folks Losin a Day out that Way but i declare i never heard of a Dill s. No i never Quot the Horn s Towt merged from faint sweetness into harsh contiguity. The Fishman Drew up at the foot of the Little Dill lame. Lobelia hurried to the door. Her thin flustered voice Quot carried Quot out to Bial Blesson s cart distinctly. Quot Well i declare Bial Blesson if you Ain t a Surprise no i Ain t comin out a my Jam la bum. You Cut me off a chowder piece o Hake about two pounds. I la put a plate with the Money on. Right out there by the Haycocks. What Peter Piper for the land you need t think Peter Piper touch it. I guess he knows manners besides he ukes his fish she went Back to her Jam Kettle in a flurry of anxiety. Her thin straight Little nose quivered with the fear of a Burnt odor but relaxed to its wonted lines at the Kitchen threshold. Only the heavy Sweet smell greeted her. Quot i would t have made it to Day if i d Lead my right senses Quot Lobelia Mun cured. Quot the idea of Strawberry Jam and fish chowder the same Day but Peter Piper d be dreadful disappointed without his chowder. I can have dinner a Little mite it did not occur to her to postpone a in fish Dittner a Day. There must be a Savory steaming chowder of course. She and Peter liked their fish cooked the same Way exactly. As Long As Lobelia Dill could re Mem Bercy and she could remember nearly half a Century there had been a fish dinner fridays in the Little Dill Homestead. It would not be Friday without one. The Fishman was Resi it Onsi Ible for a very great Deal that week. The next Day Early. Lobelia got out her kneading Board and the ingredients for her weekly loaf of Brown bread. She set her Beans to Par boiling and Parea the pie apples. It was Well to get the weekly cooking out of the Way in Good season. There were always liable to be callers saturday afternoons. Mercy Drinkwater might come panting up Quinn s Hill poor mercy was so Stout a to get that new pattern for quilts. Quot Peter Piper Yoa need t set there washing you fae.? any More it s clean enough. You go out and make yourself useful Quot Lobelia said briskly and Peter Piper went out Strai Litway and Cau Glit a Mol. He was always to be depended upon As amenable to reason Peter Piper was. The Busy morning hurried by and lapped Over a Little into the afternoon. No callers came and Lobelia took a Long restful Nap on the sofa in the Cool dark parlor. It avas nearly Naglit when she woke up. There was just time to go up stairs and Lay out her Sabbath Day clothes on the spare room bed. Lobelia never liked to take a lamp in there on account of the Crisp Muslin curtains folios set fire to Muslin curtains so often in books. Then she wound up the eight Dav clock. That always followed the laying out of the Best gown and Bonnet and neat Black gloves As surely a night comes after Day. The Dills had Ever been a ery methodical Way Back to the great greats. It Quot ran Quot in the family. Downstairs the pleasant steamy odor from oven and Steamer i be two her and in the Little pantry the Row of Golden Brown pies did Lier eyes Good. She remembered the old rhyme Quot How pleasant is saturday Naglit Quot and repeated it to Peter Piper As Slie bustled about getting Tea she had a comfortable consciousness of having Quot tried All the week to be and it gave an appetizing zest to the supper of Beans and Brown bread. The next morning Lobelia Dill woke up with the sunday Calm on her Sweet. Plain face. Ashe a allowed herself the usual a a sati hour of rest and dozing and then she and great yellow coated Peter Piper had their breakfast of Beans and Brown bread peacefully. The old Homestead where the Dills v had lived and died for a Hundred years was on the top of a High Hill and com-7 Maii ded a View of the Quot lord s whole a Beautiful creation Quot Lobelia said gratefully. It was too far from the Village to a Difili of the Church Bells being heard unless the wind Quot set due to Day it was due East and there was a flavor of rain in the air. Lobelia it prudent to take an umbrella and the search for one delayed her co Sld Bly. Who i at last she set out / on her i it Hig walk she was in a Little Quot Hirl of anxiety for fear she should be r4ate. A Diu late to meeting As Well Hil Glit the Young Chicks that scurried out of hot a be late a to their pan of a Jneal for generations it bad been the modest Liast of the Dills thai no one a a them had coct been known to late to can Racli of the Sabbath Day.

She was the very last Dill and so much depended upon her a but there was no need to hurry. After All she was very Early indeed. She walked in through the open door into the dim solemn empty room and sat Down in her Pew in front of the pulpit it was nothing now to Lobelia Dill to be the very first one at Church the new thing would have been to be the last one. She was used to waiting alone in her Pew with soberly folded hands and quietly expectant face. She usually read some of her favorite hymns while she waited but to Day her head nodded drowsily Over them. It was a warm Day and she had hurried so. She was very tired indeed. Outside the window the bees buzzed with week Day Energy and the shr ii voices of Little children drifted in and out on the Breeze. Next door to the Church mercy drink water was hanging out some clothes. When in Belia opened her eyes a Good while afterwards she experienced a distinct Slio Cli. A i eat Hori or crept gradually Over her and widened and expanded into an awful certainty. She gave one glance above her at the empty Quot Wing Quot pews above her at the empty pulpit behind her at the rows upon rows of vacant pews. Alien she knew. There was Little need of taking out Hei watch and noting the time with horrified eyes. Like the ancient handwriting on the Wall the Kunii listing truth was written in livid letters before her a Quot Lio Lielia Dill has slept All Meetin she read it Over and Over. Tie shame of it sent the blood in two Little red spots to Lier thin a heels. She had slept All through the ser Mon and All everybody had gone away ind left her sitting there in the Dill Pew asleep. In the Dill Pew the re Pima haul shades of Many Dills filed before her in a slow procession and their grieved eyes groomed at her out of the dusk of tie Church. Grandfather Dill whose White head had never nodded came first and gazed most reproachfully Quot i declare i can t even go Home past folks houses Quot groaned poor Little Lobelia. Quot Niell All be Lookin and Point in the Finger of scorn. Tivey d say a there goes the Only Dill that Ever slept to rough Meetin. It Ain t any Good that she s always been Early and never broke t record once never she s slept Ali through Meetin time now and disgraced the name o Dill. Look at her look at her there she goes and they d Call All their Little children to see How folks look etl that could t keep awake in Meetin. They d make a moral out of me out of a Dill of no i can t Ever go past their houses in Broad Daylight Quot site rocked in anguish of spirit. Her fingers clinched till they printed deep Reil Marks on her hands. What was being late to Meetin to this better she had t got Tevere till the Middle o the Sermon for then she cow have slept Only half so Long All the Long afternoon Lobelia Dill sat upright in her Pew. She was waiting for the Friendly dusk to go Home in. It was her just punishment she Iliad not complained. She even experienced a Sli Glit modicum of Comfort from her self imposed penance. It was warm and the air was drowsy a with the emptiness and stillness but she was not sleepy. She wondered grimly Ali other she should Ever be sleepy again. Her Long walk and the Long fast guide Lier faint and dizzy but Slie would not yield. Straight and ashamed and full of remorse she sat there and waited for night. Liere was no evening service to conflict with her Vigil that was some tiling to be grateful for. She had Only to wait i in the Rusli she crept meekly Home. The next morning a varied beat pitiful and Clear. The wind was due West and puff feed through the open window into Ijo Belia Dill s solemn face reassuringly but As a last resort it brought Lier the sound of Church Bells.
