little regard for time or place.

In the old days, before incorporation, and prior to   the   matter of

Mrs. McMann feared the loss of the  best girl she had ever had, and more  than that, she resented the sincere respect and friendship the boarders had  for Helmi.    Here she was, a girl who  simply stepped off the train without  a reference or letter, and in less than  a year was the most popular girl in  the valley. When the Anglican Church,  desiring to raise money for their incumbent's salary, had put on a contest in Eagle Mines, Bannerman, and  Brule; rainning one girl in, each place,  Helmi ha,d Won in a? walk.
