Roberta had given considerable thought to that very subject the night previous. "That sports suit I bought just before leaving New York." she answered promptly. Breakfast was ready on the gallery when Roberta came out looking for her host The table was set for two and Don Jaime was waiting for her. His lazy dark eyes swept her in one glance from her white kid pumps to ber Titian head. "You are as beautiful as an army with banners, Miss Antrim," he antone nounced In the matter-of-fac- t in which one proclaims that two and two make four or that a straight line Is the shortest distance between two points. Not so much a compliment or the natural desire of a man to flatter a woman, as a definite Statement ot fact Roberta flushed and hated herself for it. because it was not her habit to exhibit such apparent pleasure at compliments from men. "1 suppose he'll ask me If I slept well." she decided. "The usual banal query." He did not He tucked her Into her seat, sat down opposite, looked at her casually and said : "I see you had a good night's rest In the gigantic bed of my ancestors.

I've been trying very hard to dislike you but I must confide it's an uphill Job." "Of course, it's very unethical to like me," .he admitted demurely. "Let us say it is unusual and let it go at that" His eyes devoured her. "Roberta, I think, if you're mighty sweet I may, I'll call you Bobby." "My friends all do, Shamus.

"He's nice," the girl thought "He wouldn't take advantage of the fact that I'm his guest to appear to rush me.' Oh yes. Roberta knew men. She could read their faces end, conversely, their minds. For had not Don Jaime Miguel Higuenes just assured ber she was as beautiful as an army with banners "You're a very happy man, aren't you, Jimmy. It seems to me that with you life must be one glad sweet song." "Oh. it Is," he assured her. "The singing started last night." Again his eyes burned Into hers for a split second, and again she felt her face flushing hotly.

But we like to choose cards that show such scenes. For the cold outside suggests the ulow of a warm retreat within. It comes down to us from ancestors far away that "here, by the fire we defy frost and storm." You will se people looking longest of all at pictures of a hearth where a fire blazes, above which stockings hang. before which little children sit, nodfresh-falle- n off to sleep. Children around the hearth are at the heart of Christmas, and always ding have catch been. For children so readily this spirit of good will and kindness, and bubble over so Joyously. The little mysteries, the sudden closing of closet doors, the sudden dropping of voices to a whisper, have excited them. They know that rhese are happy secrets. Has not every dire threat that Santa Claus might forget them been spoken In a tone of Jollity that told their shrewd young minds that no one was really angry? Trust them to know the spirit behind their elders' words and tones. How great a thing this Christmas Is that it can bring its blessing even to little children.
