John Philip Brown ������at up very  straight at his end of the breakfast table. Mrs. Rachel Noah, at the other  end, could not see his little bare feet  playing tag beneath the table.  "Aunt Rachel looks _ just like my  chicken hawk���������anyways she would if  be wore spit curls," he said .to himself,  with a little chuckle. "I bet"-- But John  Philip's bet was never recorded, for Susan appeared just then, red and giggling.    ���������'  Mrs. Noah stared at her reprovingly.  "I did;not ring," she said sternly.  "No'ni, I know you didn't, but she���������  ���������he's here, an' ."���������.'��������� y  ' " 'She?' Take your apron down from  your mouth and talk connectedly. Who  is here?"  "Columbia ���������Columbia   Farley.    Sh*  ���������ays that's her name, ma'am, an' she's  from the Orphans' home���������a little mite  ���������of.a thing, an* that funny!" Here Susan retired again behind her upron.  ���������'What does she want?" Mrs. Noah  asked grimly.  "Well, ma'am," Susan exploded, "she  .wants to stay!"  "Stay?" her mistress repeated blankly, while John Philip, unreproved,  squirmed with delight. Here was something doing at last.  "Yes'm," Susan went on, "She's bad  ber eye on this bouse, she says, for a  longtime, but it wa'n't.,till tliis morn-  ln' that she decided she'd live with  you. She's a-settln' on her satchel out  In the kitchen,"  Mrs. Noah fairly snorted with astonishment and indignation. "Much obliged to her, I'm sure," she said sarcastically, "and may I ask what decided  berra our favor?" - - -  "It was John Philip, ma'am," Susan  ���������aid, choking with laughter. "She���������she  ���������ays she wants to be a mother to him."  John Philip's face matched his hair  In color now: even the freckles took on  a livelier red. "Consarn be!" he said  under bis breath.  "Any more?" bis aunt asked, with  tbe air of one prepared for the worst.  "Yes'm; she asked what your name  was, an' when I said 'Mrs. Noah' she  was that surprised. She said she'd  heard about you an' Mr. Noah at Sunday, school, but she bad no idee you  was livin' yet."  "Anything more? My oatmeafis getting cold. Don't stand there giggling  like an idiot." ,  "She wondered how old you was,  ma'am, an' when I said I didn't know  ���������he thought "she could tell by lookin'  at your teeth, like tbe hired man at  the, home done" when he bought.a  horse."  A great wave of color rolled over  Mrs. Noah's face and broke on the  beach of "spit curls", outlining her high  forehead. "Bring her In," she said,  closing her thin lips tightly over her  "store" teeth.  Susan disappeared and a moment later ushered "Columbia Parley" into the  august presence of her mistress. She  was truly "a mite of a thing," with  great dark eyes and a most engaging  ���������mile. :���������'  "How do you do, Mrs. Noah?" she  ���������aid, holding out ber hand in a quaint,  old fashioned way. To John Philip's  surprise, his aunt took the little hand  in hers.  "So you'd like to live here?" she said  not unkindly.  "Yes, awful well. Don't you need  me?" she asked naively.  "I think not," Mrs. Noah said, "very  gently for her, "and, besides, I couldn't  take you without the consent of the  matron at the home."  "Oh, she won't care!" the little girl  exclaimed eagerly. "There's too many  of us now and" ���������  "Well," Mrs. Noah interrupted, "you  can stay to breakfast, and then I'll go  with you to the home." The child had  crept thus quickly into a warm corner  of the grim lady's heart.  She was eating her oatmeal when  John Philip's father came down tf  breakfast and asked so kindly, "Whose  little girl is this?" that Columbia's  heart went out to him then and there.  "I don't know," she said simply in  reply to his question. "They ain't  found out yet at the home, but I know  how old I am. I'm going on seven.  I'm little, but maybe I'd do for him"  ���������she nodded cheerily at John Philip--  "till he got a really, truly one."  "A really, truly what?" Mr. Brown  asked smilingly.  "Why, a mother, of course. I learned  how to be one from Mis' .Tones. Sua  has eight children. She lives near tlie  . home. You Just help 'em be good, a fid  they will, 'cause you love 'em so. it's  awful nice to have a mother," she st-.id  wistfully. "I asked Tommy Join;*? if  he didn't think ���������������������, and he said, 'Suva  thing!'"  John Phili't med to scowl, but liis  forehead refused to pucker, and wMen  his father said, "Shall we let her ndopt  yon, son?" he laughed outright. "We���������  We���������might give her a try," he stammered. !  Anil so it happened that Columbia  Farley entered the Brown family "on  probation" and later was taken Into  "fiii'i membership." i  It was on a Saturday morning, a  mouth or more after Columbia had  been recelred into full Eteniborsliip,  that tho cliildren were playing togetliei  In the garden.  '���������'I guess I'll go wadin' this afternoon," John Philip announced.���������"Aunt  Rachel would just worry if I told her,  and daddy won't be home for lunch, so  I can't ask him."

(John Philip did not object to "dearlng"  in private), "an* I don't believe you'd  better go."  I    "Pooh!" John Philip rejoined.   "You  I ain't my mother.  I ain't had a mother  ' Bince I was born."  I "So," she sighed, "if you had a really truly one I guess 'you'd have to  j mind. Your father-might get-yon one."  John Philip grinned. "He's too busy,"  , lie said, "biit I know oue I'd like to get.  ; Last summer we was clown rit'JCove  ] inlet three weeks���������daddy an'  rue���������an' j  there was a jolly nice girl there, an' we  ' liked her awful well���������daddy an' mean' we took her picture one day���������snap- '  shot���������I mean daddy did. He's got it  yet. Come up to his room, and I'll hunt  for It." |  I    The children fled into the house and  up to Mr. Brown's sitting room.   Be-.,  hind a tall vase John Philip found tho  object of his search. For a moment Co- j  lunibia   gazed   at  it  with   wondering ,  eyes. "Why, It's her!" she shouted, with i  more force  than -grammar.*  "It's my :  Miss Curtis!   She'lives near the home, i  'Course she's awful nice!"   She gazed  long and lovingly at the picture. "Say," ���������  she said at last,~"s'pose we get her for  your mother?" J  I    Thereupon followed a discussion of  ways and"means, and it was not until j  after luncheon that the committee of j  two set forth in quest of a mother for '  John   Philip.   It was  a  very .startled'1  ' and amazed young lady who listened  ������������������    to their plea.  It was Columbia who offered the most persuasive argument.  B& i    "He  hasn't   anybody   but  his* Aunt  "   Rachel anil his father," she said pleadingly, "an' he keeps your picture back  of a vase, au' "��������� /  , "Who keeps my picture?" Miss Curtis interuupted, her sweet face flushing a rose red.  "Why, John rhilip's father," Columbia explained. "I s'pose , you didn't  kiiow'bout it then?"  "No, 1 -didn't know," she said. "I  didn't know," she repeated to herself-  again and again.  "Now you know, an' won't you  come, please?" It was' John Philip  who pleaded now. Miss Curtis stooped and took 'his "freckled'little face between her slender white hands. "I'll  think of it, dear," she promised, "but  it will be''better not to mention your  ���������your proposal to your father."  John Philip did not agree with her,  and that very evening he broke the  uews to his unsuspecting father. Columbia, with rare delicacy, had declined to be preseut.  "Daddy" John Philip said bluntly, "I  asked her���������Columbia an' ine."     ,  Philip Brown looked up from his paper. He was a fine specimen, of manhood���������strong of boely and mind, clean  of heart-and still on "the sunny side"  of forty.  "Askeel whom?" he said. "Asked  what?"  "Miss Curtis, you know. I���������I asked  her to be my mother."  Philip Brown sat up very straight  and stared at his small son and heir.  "Don't you want her?'' the little fellow said, struggling manfully to keep  back the tears. "I said I was sure you  wanted her, same as I did." ������������������-,'.���������.>;-...  "What did she say?" The question  caiiie from between white lips.  "She didn't-'know you had her picture till Columbia told her. She said  she'el think about it, but I'd better not  tell you I'd asked her to"���������  But John Philip was talking to the  'empty .'air:" His-father was out of tiie  room before tbe last sentence was finished. He had seized bis hat aiid vanished.  "Gee," John Philip said to himself,  "we've done it no\v, I guess���������Columbia an' me!"  'They had. The bride aiul groom said  j- so on their wedding day. John Philip's  father had suggested that tbo 'orchestra play "Hail Columbia" -while tlie  knot was being tied, but, strange to  say, the bride elect objected.
