Tommy Sparrow's Gay Nest
DO you remember Tommy Sparrow and

Of course you doi And you wish you
could hear more about his doings.
All right, liero s a story about his
bright new nest.
One morning In the dead of -winter
p Tommy looked at his nest and decided
that it looked very seedy.
"It's dirty and musay and I'm tired of
It anyway," be said to himself, "I think
I'll make ma a new nest."
Ha hadn't noticed that anybody was
around, but Cheery Chirp (Tommy's
cousin) was right behind him and heard
what he said.
"Von better bo careful about tearing

will Inqulro Incredulously. "Why don't
they have rnttlngs put up?"
Tho Englishwoman's homo is her castle,
however humble It be, and this privacy
la one of her most cherished possessions.
Tlio versatility of tho American mar
ried womnn In running sovcrat different
schemes for making extra pin money
strikes tho Englishwoman as extraordi
nary. For the American wlfo docs not
consider that tho care of a husband,
homo and children and tho fulfilling of
vailed social obligations Is nearly enough
to till her time. Sho will iuii a profltablo
business ns well, write for a dozen news
papers on an Infinite arlcty of topics and
carry on many profitable processes and
commissions "on tlio side."
Tho English wlfo would bo Inclined to
think that these business schemes iuii
b a married woman who wa coinforl
ably situated llnnnclnlK and socially In
volved some considerable loss of prestige.
Tho why and tho wherefore ot this ex
tra money-making would neor compen
sate for what she would consider tho
lowering of ivifely dignity and husbandly
prestige. Tho Englishman insists upon
cntlroly supporting his wife. Ho would
not curtail Iter activities or put a, check
upon her talents, and If a big career
wero at stake, say, in tho literary or
Journalistic field, he would probably bo
pioud of his wlfo, and glvo her every
encouragement. But tho running of
small business schemes and various
pront-maklng "stunts" would bo de
decldcdly discouraged by tho husband
of tho English wlfo who showed any
such Interesting proclivities. However,
bo that as it may, I am Inclined to ad

"I will tell you why I have been anx

know that mere suspicions aro not evi

things In the same way. If these facts

"What facts, sir?" Murray Interrupted.
"That I had been -warned against Mr.

Mr. Dick Merlet and Mr. Vertlgan met in

"Of course, we shall say nothing."
"And you, Mr. Murray?"
"Oh, the police have dropped the matter
altogether, sir, officially. I don't thlnK
you need have any fear. As to tha facts
you mention, you have omitted ono, and
that one, to my mind, the most Important
of them all namely, that Mrs. Travers
was seen at St. Pancras on the day they
first tried to abduct Lord Wlmberley.
Then thero was that meeting between her
and Mr. Vertlgan in your study when you
were away from the school. However,
sir, you can take it from me that tho pub
lic will never know of all these little r

Mrs, Travers or Mr. Vertlgan had any

"Well, jou'vo given jour word, und

"Oh, yes, I shall keep my word so long

coming from tho kitchen. And I'm ns
hungry as I've over been In my life."
On tho 30th of July, In tho Abbey Church
of Hnrptree, John Erlelgh and Anno
Wlmberley wero mado man and wife.
Tlio gieat stono building was filled with
people from end to end. Tho wholo of
the tchool was theie, and all tho county
folk, and the tenants on tho Wlmberley
estate, and the tradesmen who served
tho big house, and as many others as
could find seats or standing room in tho
part that was not reserved for the guests.
Lady Wlmberley, who was given away
by her kinsman, the joung Duke of
Selchcster, looked ery charming In a
dress of Ivory-colored satin embroidered
with pearls. If sho had had her own way
she would have been man led very quietly
in a traveling dress. But she knew that
tho Wlmberley tcnants-and all the poorer
folk In the neighborhood would have been
sadly disappointed if thero had been no
great ceremony. John Erlelgh, too, had
pointed out to her that It would be all
for tho benefit of the school. He wished
all tho world to know that lie was marry
ing Lady Wlmberley, tho mother of the
boy who had been kidnaped, owing, so
the world had whispered, to his own
carelessness. When people read the ac
count in nil tho newspapers the tongue
ot scandal would bo silenced onco and
So there had been a very great cere
mony Indeed, and reporters had como
down from London with their notebooks
and their cameras. Tho bishop of the dio
cese had himself read the marriage serv
ice and delivered a short address. After
wards thero was a reception in the big
school, and the wedding presents, many of
great value, had been displayed on tables
used In moro ordinary times for the ex
amination at tha end of term. Inspector
Russell and a policeman had mounted
guard over tha Jewels and the silver Plata
and tha rare things of Ivory and porce
lain and tortoiseehell and gold that had
come from all parts of England.
At last it was all over. The bride and
bridegroom and Joan motored to a Junc
tion Borne miles from Harptree, and Joan,
almost in tears, had to say good-bye to
her mother at the station,
"Oh, mother dear," she said, "ypu will
write to me, won't you? You won't bo so
happy that you'll forget me? And you
will come back as soon as you can, won't
John Erlelgh was seeing to the luggage,
and the two women were alone In the re
served first-class carriage.
"Of course I shall write to you, Joan,
dear. And you you will taka care of
yourself, my child. You will be with very

that ho was very sorry, hut that the train

sho made her way out of tho station on to

small and forlorn as sho seated herself
in the big, empty car. Sho felt very

Tho most Important social event of tho
season, tho Assembly, was held last night
in tlio ballroom of tho Bellovuo-Stratfoid.
No other affairs In this city havo over

most exclusive balls, and last night's
was no exception to the usunl success of
tho event from all points of view.
It was Interesting to noto tho qualms
ot tho Httlo debutantes when they took
their places In the long row of people on
tho stairway which led from tho dressing
rooms down to tho foyer where the six
patronesses stood to receive tho guests,
before a background of palms and aza
leas. It was a decided ordeal to paBs in

each guest. Ono dehutanto remarked to
nnothor on tho way downstairs, "I prac

for that curtsey, and before I reached

The ballroom was transformed Into an
cxqutslto garden. Tho boxes wero draped
with smllax and tiumpot vines, nnd tho
stago was lifted from the Moor to form u
balcony, where tho musicians played.
Tho exclusive social set was thero In
full force, from the debutantes, whoso
number this year Is fairly legion, to tho
dowager of some four score years; for It
seems tho assembly is tho ono ball In
tho year to which tho older members of
society go, and In and out In tho maze

so on account of the death of her brother,
J. Williams Carter, and her place was
filled by Mrs. Charles Edward Ingersoll,
who looked extremely handsome in black
velvot and whlto lace.
Supper was Berved at 12:43, for which
tho three large dining rooms of tho hotel
wero thrown open, and the guests wero
seated at small tables. But for tho
formality of tho dignified curtsey, tlio
dancing differed In no way from other
balls. Fox Trot and Lulu Endo, Hesita

It may bo because thero will be no
second assembly this year that there was
such an extremely largo attendance, for
at no time was It easy to dance on tho
crowded floor, though the ballroom tit
tho Bellevuo-Stratford never seems as
crowded as did tho old foyer of tho
Academy of Music, when Uie assemblies
Were held there.
Though tho orders had gono forth that
tho music would atop promptly nt 4.00
o'clock It was well on towards 4:30 when
tho strains of "Home Sweet Home" and
"Good Night, Ladles" wero heard, and
tho guests hastened to the enjoyment of
bouillon before leaving.

very fow exceptions the nowcomrs to tho
ball each year, wero Miss Jean Nowbold
