Elizabeth had clung, to her sweet
heart and vowed she'd love only him.
Since that stormy scene the duchess
had spoken the name of her daughter
Elizabeth to bnt one person and not a
word as to the girl's fate since she
went away clinging to the arm of her
ehoeen husband had rea'cßed the moth
As time passed, however, the moth
er's heart softened, and as her hair
grew white an irresistible longing for
her child tilled her heart.
At length a trusted lawyer was called
•nd given instructions. He was to
trace the duchess' daughter and report
all facts concerning her without, how
ever. disclosing his identity or that of
his employer. On receiving his report
the duchess would decide whether or
not she would send word to that
daughter to return to her arms.
The lawyer's search was neither sim
ple nor brief. It had been twenty
years since Robert Lee and his bride
started out to face life together, and
the world, not knowing that the girlish
»vife was the daughter of the Duchess
of Drex. had concerned itself not at all
as to their ruoveuieuts. and they had
left bat a-faint trail
In the end. however, patience and
money resulted in success. The law
yer followed their track across the sen
and from the Atlantic seaboard of the
Tnlted States Into the west.
At Chicago he found recorded the
birth of a daughter to Robert Castle

In a Colorado mining town an aged
minister led him to a neglected little
churchyard and pointed out a stone on
iwhlch he could read the words:
"Elizabeth, wife of Robert C. Lee.
Aired twenty-four years."
Thus had ended the romance of the
daughter of the Duchess of Drex. who
might have been, had her heart not
ruled otherwise, the Princess of
The lawyer hesitated, but his orders
had been to report "all concerning" the
daughter of the duchess, and. thinking
of the birth record in Chicago, he again
took up the search, which now led him
from city to mining camp and back
ag-ain as he followed apparently aim
Old miners and prospectors some
times nodded when he questioned
them, spat reflectively and said:

Finally he came to the Palace hotel
In the town of Salt Springs, Nev., a id
there gleaned facts which sent him
straight back to England.
The lazy warmth of harvest time lay
npon the land, and nt Croftlaigh the
tea table had been spread in the fa
mous old rose garden, and Betty her
self was like a faintly pink rose among
the other blossoms. A motor horn
sounded from the drive, and the pink
"Now who do yon suppose that can
be?" Betty demanded. "I don't ears*
who it is. I'm not going in." she added,
and spoke to the hovering footman.

"Couldn't say what, and shouldn't

"Er—all those things you observed,
my dear." he drawled lazily.
At this moment Timuions reappear

"Her grace the Puehess of Prex!"
The next instant the duchess was ad
vancing briskly, and Cecil and Betty
rose to greet her.
"How'do. Cecil." her grace remarked
with a casual nod toward that uoble
man. and then turned with a smile to
'So this little girl is Lady Cecil." she
said, and retained the hand which
Betty gave her. "I had an hour to
spare." she coutinued. "and so ran over

be on band, of course."
The duchess hesitated and ioo!r»d
deep into Betty's rather puzzled eyes.
"I am going to kiss you. my child."
she said suddenly, and her own eyes
seemed misty. "I hare more or less of
a right to." she added whimsically,
"because I am your grandmother,
Betty could only gasp at this star
tling announcement, but Cecil found
"Oh. I say. your grace—really, y*
know—by Jove!" he protested. "You
couldn't be Betty's grandmother, v"
know, because then she'd be your
granddaughter, by Jove!"
"Well, that Is Just what she is," the
duchess retorted sharply. "She is the
child of my daughter Elizabeth."
Suddenly her voice grew tender as
she again turned to the girl.
"I am glad you have yonr mother's
name, my dear." she said. "I would
prefer that my heiress should be so
called. I can see you are perfectly
happy and so won't care, but there
will be a couple of million pounds
when I am gone, and there is no one
to have it all but you. And I want
you to try to love me a bit. my child.
I am an old woman and very lonely."
"I will indeed!" Betty cried, with a
sudden rush of pity and affection, and
put her arms about the old lady's neck.
"There, tfcere. now!" the duchess ex
claimed, abruptly withdrawing from
the embrace. "I'll have to get back to
my bothersome Prince of what-y'-
may-call-it. but you must run over and
see me soon. Betty. And you. Cecil."
she added sharply, "you are to bring
her up to London when the season
opens. I want to have the pleasure of
creating a real seusation by presenting
at court a young woman with some
claim to good looks."

Small Cakes for the Holidays
Xut wafers are especially suited to
the holidays. Any sort of nuts may be
used: children are partial to peanuts.
Whatever kind you choose, be sure they
are -finely chopped.
Cream half a cup of butter with two
cups of sugar; add three beaten eggs
one cup of (lour containing three
teaspoOM of baking powder. Mix all
this together and add a teaspoon of
lemon extract, a cup of nut meats, half
a cup of sweet milk and enough more
sifted flour to give the dough suf
ficient consistency to roll out very thin.
Cut in- round-} or fancy shapes and
bake in moderate oven.
The same precautions and rules hold
in baking small cakes as Large ones.
The flour must be sifted twice, once
before the salt and baking powder are
put in ami once nfter. Bread flour will
not make fine cakes; pastry flour must
be used, and the best baking powder
is the only kind good enough for any
sort of baking.
Simple frostings and pure fillings are
better for all cakes than fancy failures.
Everything that is put on a cake should
be edible and especially does this apply
to children's cakes.
Make plain, uncooked icings with
confectioner's sugar and .the white of
egg. Color it any tint desired with
cake coloring and dip the small cakes
When it has set, but before it hard
ens, put on the decoration?. These may
bp candied rose leaves, violets, fancy
candies or blanched nuts. Ten cents'
worth of any one of them will be suf
ficient for a number of small cakes or
a large one. * /
Even an ordinary cake is capable of
many transformations and may grow
into an elaborate affair by decoration.
Answers to Correspondents
How is potato yeast made?
Reply.—Boil four good-sized pota
toes': mash them fine and add one-half
cup sugar, two tablespoons of salt, one
quart of boiling water, one pint cold
water, one cup of old yeast. Cover
this closely and let it stand over night,
when it will be ready to use. One-half
pint will raise two quarts of flour.
How is tomato flavor added to meat
Reply.—l'se tomato sauce for this.
Add it to the gravy after it has been
freed.from fat; stir and strain the
gravy and serve it very hot. If you do
not use a great quantity of the sauce
you will do better to buy the com
mercial article than to make it.
