"ai'ly has learned the duties of her htitlt
i o'Hloti. For, next only to her mother,
- "- is thp jtrctttrrt lady In the land of
K inland, lid holds the nohhst rank.
v th no jdster to sharve her lessons or
puts-uiis, the young Trlncess jtrently up
proeiates the society Of her five brotlicrs,

Prince .lulin. for Prlncets Mary loves nth
leiie sports, and until lately has always
shared In sll her brothers' rajnes. In te
tuni, she has invariably been the recip
ient of their confidences nnd affection.
A certain royal dlpnlty surprising In
go young a girl clings to the youthful
Princess. She has Inherited the true
Queenly manner, and once some years ago
the Trine of Wales was heard to say
that "Mary was welcome to do all the
State business, and leave him out of It,
as she liked it and he didn't."
f.nst year at the great tennis tourna
ment nt Wimbledon, when America tri
umphed in the winning of the Pavls cup
n"rt wrested the prize from England,
rrlneess Mary arrived, youmt and beau
tiful In her simple white lrock and pink
hut Her appearance was greeted by the
applause of thousands, and a sea of ooera
ginsses was leveled upon her. Hut, al
though the color rose In her soft young
cheeks, her air of ipdet self-possession
never for a moment wavered. Her easer
mux; followed the lightning strokes of
the victorious McLouffhllii. and o tn
urevfM was she In the game that when
a wait- r came bearing a tray for her to
take afternoon tea she waved it hastily
aldi. The I'uvls cup was hroueht for
h. r to see. nnd when the great match
w.-im over she rose and walked on the
1 n't! t.. the waiting motorcar with all the
li-rmty of grown-up royalty.
Tho Princess Is a clever needle woman,
a might bo expected of the daughter of
!! indefatigable Knglish QUecu. But
, heiher she possesses ft love for It or not
s very doubtful, although she sews ex
t nslvelv for the poor. A( an exhibition
: work done for tho Needlework Guild
omw one said to the Quen. "What a
beautiful piece of work l'rlnr;ss Mary
'.as done." The Queen replied, "1 um
Iraki it litis cost some tears."
i'hi.' Princess is a splendid horsewoman,
and has a preat ambition to be allowed
t i dilve ,-uj automobile. Mounted on a
ut'Je chestnut cob, she rode to hounds
fi.',t at the age of 11. antf since then .she
i"4- been an ardent devotee the sport,
entire many a gallop In Windsor For
et or around Sandrlnghom. As tt tennis
pli-er. the Princess is most enthusiastic,
;nd the King and she have many a hard-fous-ht
bnt'lo on the courts.
I'eukimr nnd all branches of domestic
Fflenee are old familiar grouint to her,
. ml .-! N a most successful amateur
p ,otr.raph"r.
The v omig Princess is very much at
tached to the baby of tho family, that
nauahty, lovable little boy, I'rtmv John,
o whom many amusing talps are told.
'"Hie day. whi.ii he was quite a little fel

wotker, to penetrate thn veil and fathont
h. r menial iitlllttdr toward life ami tho
great sttuugto for llfo Is no easy task.
Vet the little m-yent'-oM eaeh-glri talked
teadilv and well.
"1 have always been a worker, and 1
like it." said she to 1116 In her cheerful
v.ay, "for mother used to go out washing
and when 1 came lit from school, I had
to honse-clenn, and cook, and mind my
little brother nnd the bnuy. Then, while
I amis at school. 1 worked all Saturdays
1 In a stoic as "warn" girt. The hours
wcii? sometimes a Utile long 0 in the
tnorn.mj till 12 nt night but then tho pay
I was splendid for n ulilkl, for 1 got ei cents.
"And.'' wiili a Intimity reminiscent look,
' "if 1 got home earlier, why. mother some-
! limes' let me hnvp rt nickel to go to tho
' movies with I"
"Itut didn't yoti wiint to play on eattir
dn.vs like other little girls'.'" f asked
1 " hy yes: nut I Just had to forget
i about that and it was great to bring that
I ' 1 cuts to mother. It helped her so. But
all that ended throe years ago, when 1
l.-tl school I've been a rral store-girl
ever since. And now I'm making $1 a
week. I feel so independent, although,
Of course. I give it all to mother. It's
all we have to live uti, ou see."
"And Isn't It rather flue of you to 'give
it all to mother'?"
"1 look on It this way," said the little
cash-girl earnestly, "mother used to work
so hard for me, that now It's just my turn
to work for her! And that's only fair
play. ou know. Those years of bending
ove't the wash-tub havn given her rheu
matism, and now she c.iimot work hard
any more. Mother used to be so young
and pretty, but now she looks sort of old
and tired. 1 want so much to take that
tired look away, to let her rest tip a bit."
"And don't you want the gaieties that
alrls of your age so often have?" I could
not refrain from Inquiring.
The little cash-girt smiled nnd her
stnile held no regrets, no bitterness, only
the sheer optimism and the wonderful
courage of youth. "1 have no time for
many gaieties," she said earnestly, "but
I am very happy nil the same. You 1
see, I work till hulf-past live and four
evenings a week t go to night school.
The other nights I study ut home, und
sew for my little, brothers. And Sunday
evenings I am free to read and enjoy
"And do you ever wonder just ulier''
it Is all leading to. little girl?" I asket.
"Do you ever think of the days and
jonrs of work that lie ahead and feel
a little frightened of It nil?"
"I look on It this way," said the little
cash-girl earn'atly. "When you tliug
your heart and soul into any job, it be
comes Interesting. And If you aim to pet
on and on, and tip and up. why you don't
seem to mind the long hours and the;
difficulties. The time Hies so quick when
you are busy that ou cannot stop - to
wonder if you aie happy or not. And
as for the years ahead. I take a day at
a time, and thnt Is enough for me. But
I'm nt afridd of the years, because I'm
determined they will bring a blgner sal
ary with them."
"But the disappointments?" I said
"They havo a good side, too," said the
little philosopher eagerly. "Voti know,
this year 1 planned to go for just one
week to Atlantic City I've never sc:n
the sea, and I've always longed to go.
Well, everything mi' arranged, and I
was counting tho days, when suddenly
I wo moved Into a new department and
told that I could get no vacation this
year at nil! I was so disappointed, for
X had been saving foi siv years to go.
Rut then this new department in the
store paid tne more."
"So you think every cloud has its sil
ver lining, is that it?"
She nodded her heud -agely. "And 1
know that happiness euium from Inside,
and we can really make it all ourselves,"
she answered. "And t think a trlrl who
arris her own salary and can help at
home with It has such n tine chance to
be happy. Because she is so necessary,
so needed. And nmons the poor there
Is more love than among the rich!"
"And so you look forward cheerfully
to ix long life of work all tho time?" I
"t think tho worker are the happiest "
said the httle cash-girl eagerly. "There
a p ople v. ho lift, and people who lean.
But the people who lift ure the ones
that really count, don't you think so?"
"Indeed I do, little philosopher," said
I, "And carry that theory with you to

story of tny life will show the Very heart
of me.
A week after mother's death. lh kind
ly little lawyer- who was negotiating af
fairs for tne, Imd obtained my passage
lo America, nmt accompanied me tin to
tendon to complete the filial winding up
of business matters. Willi a sad heart,
t hade a long farewell to the humble
folks In the little Knglish village, nnd
to the rottago on the dear Stisscc Downs!
In two hours' time we were in London.
and on the morrow I una lo sail for
America. It had till been arrnnged tai
swiftly, so suddenly, but In that crowded
week I was glad thut I had to work so
1iard-gl.nl that 1 had had but little
breathing space for thought niul remem
brance' The hurry and the bustle dulled
the hist sharp pain of my loss, nnd took
the first keen stlug of bitterness away.
TNVlTnD TO D1UV13. '
"f-inir rente. Miss Adair," said the
tittle old lawyer fip-slly. um together wr
stood at tho edgo of the pavement at I
Oxtoid circus, that great corner, where
in a roar and a very whirlpool of tralllc
the great Regent stieet nnd Oxford street
unitt;; "Come, come; you must be hungry.
Since our business Is concluded I wish
to take yott to dine," nnd he beamed
affably upon me.
Rut above tho roar of the truffle his
thin and reedy voice quavered uneertnln
1, and tny thoughts were with the crowds
tiround, I Stared tratisll.sed and ftts
einiittil, a writable country" cousin. A
ymiiiT. tall, helmetcd policeman stood
alone nnt'dst that seething mob, and with
one uplifted hand kept back 11 hundnd
Hying taxis, wagons nnd niotorbitsca.
Alone he stood there ns with the divine
right of kings; for rich and poor,
coiotietcil carriage and careering lorry
obeyed his lightest hlgn. And then at
lat the uplifted hand wns lowered, nnd
the tralllc, llko some wild cngcil thing
that can ill brook rctralnt, leapt forward
with a great, dull roarjnguln.
"Kllen dair." suld the little lawyer
testily. "I am not young, and I never
was patient. Wo havo stood Iter for ten
minutes exactly. Jteliiml us are the win
dows of .lay's establishment. Just cram
med with lints, and gowns, and women'a
fal-de-rals. And if you will turn around
nnd gaao right there I can excuse you
being u woman nnd necessarily foolish!
But wo cannot continue right here, guz
lug In space and obstructing tho King's
1 could not but snillc, nnd come to earth
again. "Across that awful street we must
go," sold the little niHii, "If we nrc to get
to Piecnclillv tcnlght by Tube or 'bus or
taxi or any way at nil. And to trust my
life to the whims of that lanky Irish
boy in the policeman's uniform Is a poor
legal proposition! Hut ived must." and
seizing my nrm ho plunged us i-eeklessly
into the tralllc. Whai might have hap
pened T do not know, but 1 cast one de
spairing glance on the young policeman,
and gallantly lie responded to the oc
casion. At n wnvo of hli hand, the tralllc
halted to let us cross.
AVo reached the entrance to the Oxford

was 8 o'clock on a tine July evening, und
tho tall-hatted, frock-coated London busi
ness men were hurrylngto their trains.
The passages to the Underground, these
strange subterranean passages which
wind Tnr below tho London streets, were
full of hurrying men to me they seemed
liko so many frightened rabbits scurrying
In their warren.
"It would ho 11 pity to go d.iun theto
thl gloilous summer evening:" said 1,
"even for a short time, it Is only 6
o'clock, and wo have atill mote than three
hours of daylight. 1 would love to ride
on a London motorhus!"
The little Iiiwjer waved a frantic eane
to tho Ili-Ht of tt lung line of great iliug
inotorbusos, which, like huge Jugger
naut, wero careering down Itegen't
street. The red-faced driver wheeled
sharply Into the pavement, and without
even stopping tho vehicle, the conductor
at the rear leaned out and naked us both
til. while, tlioy were still moving. I
thought It amusing, but my companion-m-uiins
waa moio 'at arms' tlmn evei.
"Preposterous behavior!" he storm, d
aloud, "I have never yet known a London
motorbus to really stop for man or
beu.st! One is literally picked up by the
scruff of tho neck, heaved in, mid later
on gently deposited in the same manner
upon tho pavement, while the 'bus keeps
up tho theory of perpetual motion. I
shall report this to tho Loudon County
Council, just see If I don't, sir!"

MANY years ago, when this world
was all a fairyland, the (lower
fairies worked very hart! all tlie sum
mer Ions.
There were so many, many tltiuiis
for them to do buds to open and pet
als to paint; stamens to powder and
seeds to make.
"I really do declare," exclaimed
Fairy Moss one day, "that there is no
end of our work!"
"Thank goodness, you're right,"
said Fairy Silver heartily.
"Of course, I am right." responded
Fairy Moss tartly, "1 always am; hut
why thank goodness about it:"
"Ilccause a world without work is
the very stupidest place one can pos
sibly imagine that's why!" And
Fairy Silver laughed so heartily at
the wry face Fairy Moss made that
what do you suppose? Fairy Moss
actually commenced to laugh, too! He
laughed and laughed at Fairy Silver's
laughter till the wry look went off
his face and he seemed really happy!
"Very well then,' he said finally,
"let's say work is all right then I
must be all wrong, for I don't like it!"
Fairy Silver looked him over care
fully. "It has been a hot day," he ad
milted, "and you have worked hard
I know; I believe yott need a nap."
"A nap!" exclaimed Fairy Moss in
"A nap," replied Fairy Silver firmly,
"and you are going to have it right
He led Fairy Moss over into a nice
shady cornetvunder some broad leaves,
tucked him up snugly and left him to
"There! I guess that will make him
feel better." he decided and he went
on about his own work as cheerfully
and happily as always.
Fairy Moss really was tired. And
he slept ami slept and slept till the
day was done till the sun bad set and
tlH stars had come mil in the sky.
Then he stirred and twisted and
woke up.
He could hardly believe his eves!
"Stars! Arc the stars out already?"
he exclaimed. "And has the sun sot
without my seeing it?" He was just
about to feel very bad about all lie
had missed when he noticed how
rested and refreshed he felt. "Xcver
mind what 1 have missed; I feel much
better and tomorrow 1 can see the

was sleepy and cross as ever. "
really will have to take another nap,
but I don't need lo sleep o long.
Maybe Fairy Silver can tell me how
o wake up sooner."
Fairy Silver thought a minute and
(hen said. "That's easy; ask this bush,
under which you sleep, to call you
when the sun begins to set."
Su Fairy Moss went to sleep. And
promptly at ), when the sun began
to drop down iu the sky, a Joen
trumpets of red and vellow and white
appeared all over the bush. Thcv
blew and blew until Fairy Moss
woke up and saw the sunset.
And ever since that day the "Four
oLlocks" blow their gay trumpets
and wake the napping fairies in liiiiu
to see the sun set.
