St'pries  Published  by Special  Arratseetaent  with the Author  (Continued)  CHAPTER  SEVENTEEN  Christmas^Bay fell on a Saturday  last year, and to that fact we owed  Teddy's riying visit. He came out  Friday night and returned to*tbe city  Mfosday morning.  That, my first country Christmas, is  another occasion that wi!5 always be  greetf. in my memory, tor it was a very  happy time, in spite of the little ache  ot homesickness that    underlay -the  I rington.    -wrote     a , characteristically  1 amusing letter to Murray and sent a  boat to Rupert and a. Belcina doll to  Nicolas. Cousin Margaret sent two  pairs of small-sized snowshbes, and  ?.laudie a ������beautifully dressed doll for  Nicolas arid "a Tinker Toy for Rupert.  Teddy brought1 me tho Blue Canton  jar I have wanted for years, ties and  a pair of slippers for Murray, and���������  heartless wretch' that he is���������Eg drum  and a bugle for the twins.  Even our new friends were thoughtful, we had cards from several of the  Spruce.Creek' people and G-wen Severn gave me beautiful lace handkerchief. : And'as'for the children, even  Cousin Margaret's snowshoes - :were  forgotten for. a feXy minutes ..wjienthe  Cameron boys arrived with an endearingly -clumsy Collie puppy 'who,' after  much thought oh the part of the-���������twin's  and many inappropriate suggestions  from Teddy, was named "Waggles.^  On the Wednesday'''between Christmas and "New- Year's Day the 'MoW-  -brays gave a..party1;. ��������� Even their big  house \va s crowded; a nd we. had. a wonderful time.      Air of -us who had chil-  or the excitement, or the fact that  Jean was- in her own home I do not  know but stt all events while .lean  distributed -her dances strictly, -in  rotation it"*-was Jins who helped her  and Mrs", 'ftfowbray to serve the;supper, who ,' with the Mowbra^" boys  cleared tire * rooms for dancing,, and  who was always at J can's einow when  she "wanted anything done. v' It 'was  not so much what-he did as the way  in which he did it���������he hart helped me  in. the, same way many times���������and  equally significant was Jean's manner  of accepting"his services. .When a  girl like Jean begins t-o mother a man  like Jim something Is bound to happen, and while I bad from, the first  been fond of Jim I was not sure that  he was quite good enough for Jean.  One thing ^Murray sitxd I .both noticed, ana laughed at oiu our way home,  Was that Mrs. Mowbray tried in vain  to keep him._ In his place, her soft  heart and Jim's firm conviction that  everybody loved 'bint being obstacles  equally difficult to overcome. Mrs.  Mowbray, I think, rather fayorect Mr.  Macleod, perhaps beesut^u hovwas older and more a man oi" the world, perhaps because, mother-like, she wanted Jean to have an easier life than  her's had been.
