(By Mis. aide-eye- Her pomta bandlcapiMd her at the vary baptismal foot for the name bestowed apou her, UaUtaNe Hopkins, wae enough to make a spinster of the lorsUest girl ever born. When She left orbed they bore ber off to Europe, whore, while ber fire yean of travel gave ber an excellent knowledge of men In the composite, man aa an Individual was entirely unknown to her. Then followed her fathers death and ber mother's long yean of lllueai, when all the daughter'll thoughts and energies were concentrated on the sick room. Finally, to coinplet the lands which all her life bad been forged to keep ber In single blessedness, she found herself at thirty-livwith a very comfortable fortune and not u sign of a near relative with whom to share It. tto that she hadn't even that questionable excuse of lieroiuing married for the ki.e of u home. If Meiiitahlr had heeu'a jnmr girl she for sin might have proved a could paint so cleverly as hi make rival.- dcddeiily uni But now that e us, ln-- r - a lonely woiuiiu, she found with eriielly plain silver lines over her temples and no longer any ir:n-- of the e dimples where the sharp knui kies now showed, her only resource was her paleiie. One tiling site stonily refused to do, however, and that was to make n wurksliip of the old family home, t!ie at last hit Uhid the tiny brown cottage in rhe next square, wliere all the surrounding, lowering resiliences looked ill heartless frame disdafu ou tin tiiuilde-dowhouse, which the owai-r- , a weak-voice- d Hill" 'ild man. had flung to desperately 111 spit'..1 of all his fiishiomilile neigh-b- o s' scorn Slid tin- - templing offers of frantic real esitite dealers. Tlie old mat. had been found dead one u ruing that summer with tin rising suns rsys trying to warm his thin, white cheeks. Then al Ithe residents mi the square sighed In a relii vco way ami tha shrewd real estnie uu u began in hunt up tlie heirs with new propesalH for the valuable lnt of grotuid. when lo and behold! It was discovered tlait tlie d poor, dead owners will was 1 icing by a prodigal soil, and therefore the house would have to remain wliere It was until tlie question was settled. Again the fashionable square squirmed and fluttered, for it was evident that no oue with any would want to occupy the Innocent cause of all this trouble while there was the terrible .possibility that some sacrilegious laundress might rent the little brown house and mar the whole landscape with ber outrngious signs and of flauutiug, shameless lung line sheets and petticoats . At this point of suspended hostilities Miss llopklus conceived the lirillltut Idea of transforming the disputed property Into a icmixirary studio, to be used until the long legal quihlile should end. Whereat the entire neighborhood was enthusiastically grateful. It Is true that Miss Hettie, at which prim appellation poor Miss Hopkins nsrer failed to writhe, shivered s little at the duet in the corners and lifted her Immaculate skirts gingerly as she surveyed the rickety front steps. Bring over enough Imminent and Tails to make It strong and safe, she commanded the carpenter, whom she laol brought with her ou her linnl visit cf innpeciion. "Mind you, safe, she reicatcd, as a loose board in the floor creaked oniui--or.sbeneath her tread. "I'm on plenty of locks, too, and as the smoky walls loomed up before her in all tlieir bare, grim neglect, for .pitys sake, get It clean. Whereat tbs man promised profusely ami as ho went off grinned at the lrenmry of the timid little spinster's terror of anything not scrupulously hc-s.-- lf ohl-tiui- u inn-teste- - self-rcqs'- ly ueat. At last It was finished anil its temporary owner held a reception to tlie residents of ths whole square. Tiler came, one and all. and went awny fairly delighted at the result. The low walls bad been done in an unbroken and the floors Inid soft and smooth with something a sluule darker. The poor, liattcrcd woodwork now alione in a dark rich red. while thi tiny window-pain'formerly so pitifully cheap looking, were now voted quaint to a degree. The Chinns covered eouelies were tantallzlngly inviting aud the simple draperies added wonderfully to the artistic whole. And throughout It all there had not been done one thing to mar any of tlie old house's original rhariu lieyond the necessary nails and braces 'to steady the poor littls wreck. For the first time In her life Miss Hetty had Umo to be really happy and the big family house up on the corner rarely knew her except when she crept back there at dusk to her solitary state dinner and the undisturbed night's rest in the big, quiet chamber on the second floor. Canvases seemed fairly to fly from beneath her tireless fingers, and pretty soon everybody romc to recognise her works, because of the Inevitable old man, with a thin, pale face, who always stood out against the background of the old, slanting brown bouse. When she one day showed the last thing she bad done the whole out Into the square tiptoed, street again, with many a penitent 111 of the promise never again to speak tattered little house and Ita erstwhile owner. For Miss Hettys masterpiece pictured the dead, quiet face, there In the early sun. with the shadows of vines across his the morning-glorhigh, lined forehead and with one huge, rosy hlossom Trailing in at tlie open casement as though trying to lend warmth to tlie some of Its wasted, patient cheek lieyond.

And poor, fond, foolish little Miss Hetty sotilied quietly as she laid ber trembling hand tenderly on the beloved canvas. It was that same evening that Mn Wllmartb brought her brother, Mnj. Ioane. to see the little collection. Mrs. Wllmarth lived Just across the street from tha big Hopkins bouse aud Miss Hetty had always found a gnd deal of comfort In the lirlght. busy young matron.
