pretty girl End seemed to know her place Mrs Ward told me the other day that she is well educated and It is no sort of use tryin to do that sort of thing Mrs Rice inter ¬ rupted with energy I tried that plan once in Whiteville and it did no good at all Servants as a class can not be treated that way They al- ¬ ways take advantage of it ThatB what I have always said added Mrs Burns Look at Mrs Vanes girls She changes as often as any of us and has as mucn troublehe girls dont want to be treated ¬ I ts 111ke that s r And if they do it makes no dif Jerence with their real position No i one will really ask them into society and if they did they would not kncv how to behave Mrs Wilson exclaimed It does seem a pity though Mrs Rice went on that girls like this one shouldnt be allowed to have a chance like other people What is she with Mrs Ward for if she is educated and + all that 0 she has some idea of helping solve the servantgirl problem Mrs Burns replied At least Mrs Ward told me something of that sort She does not know all about the girl her ¬ self Its a queer way to solve the ques ition to go out as a servant herself said Mrs Wilson and the otner two women said Thats so Yet all three o these women had been trough t up en the theology of the orthodox teaching of the atonement ° Did you see Mr Morton speamgo o the Wards He was just as polite p the girl as he was to anyone in + the church loudIt I nice to do remarked Carl I dont think it is either Barbara admitted Then what makes you do it in sisted CarlI wont any more when you are around promised Barbara with much positiveness The child seemed satis fied with this statement but when ¬ ¬ Barbara at last took the gingerbread man out of the oven Carl suddenly said Lets name him Barbara All right said Barbara pleas ¬ antlyYou Carl suggested Well how about Carl No I dont like that Lets call him lets call him Mr Morton Very well replied Barbara hur riedly Run right along with it Your mamma is calling you and I must finish my baking Dont you think he looks like him Carl insisted as he grasped the figure by the feet which in the process of baking had become ridiculously short andstubbymerginginto the coat tails No I dontthink its a striking re ¬ semblance said Barbara laughing Well I do I think he looks just like him I like Mr Morton dont you But at that moment Mrs Ward called Carl in the tone he always give a name ¬ was being said especially at the table when she was called in to stand and wait at the beginning or during the different courses But today in spite of herself she could trot avoid hearing and knowinga part of the general conversation She heard Mr Ward goodnaturedly asking Mr Morton how long he ex¬ pected to live in a hotel at Carlton Ill warrant all the young ladies in Carlton have given him at least a bar Mr Ward rel of slippers already said looking at his wife Will you give me the highest mar ¬ ket price for all the slippers I possessso far Mr Morton asked with a smile Mr Ward was in the wholesale boot and shoe businessI dont know I dont think I want to load up so heavily on slippersI assure you it would not ruin you Mr Morton answered lightlyI think with Mrs Ward though that you ought to be getting a home of your own Mr Ward was saying when Barbara came in with the des ¬ rendered I think airs Ward will find out her mistake and be ready to say so inS little while If she is going to her girl to church with her ipnt see where she can stop short of taking her with her everywhere else and of course society will not tolerate that Mrs Rice said after a A pause f < not The whole thing is The girls must keep their Of course absurd places All such eccentric women like Mrs Vane do more harm than good Mrs Burns declared with decision I had given Mrs Ward credit for more sense Mrs Wilson said grave- ¬ ly But I must turn down here < 5qodby Dont forget the com meeting at ray house tomor row cried Mrs Rice and very soon chg parted front Mrs Wilson remind- ¬ ing her as they separated of the chu Qhcommittee meeting later in the week The next morning after Mr Ward had gone down to his business Mrs You rememWard said to Barbara ber Mr Morton is coming to lunch

MORTON lateMr Morton said nothing in answer to this and when Barbara came in next time they were all talking of the college days when Alfred and Morton were together Barbara had eaten her own dinner and was at work again clearing off the dinner dishes so that when Mr Morton rose in the other room to go she heard him exchanging farewells with the Wards and promising come down again before long He went out into the hall and after a pause Bar ¬ I dont find my bara heard him say hat Possibly Miss Clark hung it up somewhere There appeared to be a search goingon for the missing hat and Barbaras face turned very red as she took some dishes out into the kitchen and on turning to come back saw the missing hat on a chair at the end of the table where she had absentmindedly car ¬ ried it on Mr Mortons arrival She recovered herself in a moment and taking up the hat brought it into the hall saying as she confronted the I plead guilty to absentminister mindedness Mr Morton I carried your hat out into the kitchen They till had a good laugh at Bar barns xpense in which she joined and E Morton removed the last of Barbaras confusion by sp king of his own absentminded moments t< SPECIAL PAIL

often said The servant gins are in a distinct They are the class by themselves least educated the most indifferentto refining influences of all the la ¬ boring classes At the same time Barbara began but Mrs Ward was called out of the room by some demand of Lewis who was still posing more or less as an invalid although he was able to be about and Barbara went on with her work conscious that the dragon Was if anything bigger and nercer in some directions every day About noon the bell rang and Bar ¬ bara with a little heightening color in her face went to the door Mr Morton greeter her as she opened the door saying Happy to meet you again Miss Clark A little pleasanter and not so hot as last week Barbara returned his greeting by Yes sir and took his hat saying while he walked immediately into the sittingroom like a familiar guest Mrs Ward heard mm from upstirs and came down at once while Bar ¬ bara went into the kitchen During the meal Barbara could not avoid hearing part of the conversation She nad always remembered what her mother had often said about servants telling everything heard in the family talk and she had tried since coming to the Wards to I i q GREETED HER obeyed and Barbara did not have to answer him She finished her work in a serious mood and in the evening in the little room over the kitchen she at first sat down to meditate as her custom some ¬ times was But suddenly changing her mind she opened her Bible toseek out another of the passages that re ¬ ferred to the servant or to service and after several unsuccessful attemptsto locate a verse that she thought was in Thessalonians she found the passage in Ephesians sixth chapter fifth verse Servants be obedient unto them that according to the flesh are your masters with fear and tremblipg in singleness of your heart as unto Christ not in the way of eyeservice as men pleasers but as servants of Christ doing the will of God from the heart with good will doing serv ¬ ice as unto the Lord and not unto men knowing that whatsoever good thing each one doeth the same shall he receive again from the Lord wheth- ¬ er he be bond or free And ye mas ters do the same things unto them and forbear threatening knowing that both their Master and yours is in Heaven and there is no respect of persons with Him I wonder just what those words mean Barbara thought And ye masters do the same things unto
