little table with the
worn edges and
many scratches . . .

the great-aunt said, looked better than
she had ever seen him.
I guess his stepmother is pretty
good to him." she said kindle.
'Well, I'm afraid it's just Cali-
fornia,"  Cam  answered  honestly.
You see, we left on our wedding day
.nd onlY got back vesterda \. But I
think Taffy's on the right road now; I
think he'll go right ahead," she added
w hen Tafle had careened out into the
hallway, blowing a horn, followed by
the girls banging on drums.
Mrs. Spaulding was evidently highly
maternal. She had two children and
several grandchildren in Boston; her
phil had been held in quarantine in
Guam; she was missing Christmas at
home for the first time in her life.
Mr Marv's bovs are just about the
ages of your girls," she said. "It's
unfortunate that me girl has boys and
me hoe girls-Leonard has four girls.
One would like the name to go on.
You'll have a bo' for John one of
these daes," the great-aunt said ma-
jesticallY.  ' You're  the maternal
type. As for my sister Lily," she
added, 'she never ought to have had
children at all. Lily was always a
dreamer. John turned out to be a
genius, just her luck. Geniuses are the
nearest things to being completely
cracked that there are.'
Cam laughed joyously.
"And Amanda-Tids, as the' call
her, is-well, you know what she is."
"She seems like a child in many'
ways. I don't imagine that men or
love affairs mean much to her."
"Ah, me dear, Vou don't know
her!" Maria Spaulding said forcefullV.
"Don't think there isn't a lot of pas-
sion wrapped up in that girl. She's al-
wvayvs dreaming of knights and cava-
liers and all that sort of thing. Lily
may well watch that girl. Well, my
dear, you've taken 'em all on, and
you'll have your troubles with 'em!
But John's a line fellow, if he has got
the Johnson jealousy."
' Women like them jealous," Cam
said, smiling.
"Yes, for a while thee do." Aunt
Maria departed and Cam took the
children to their beds. When she went
into her own room fifteen minutes
later John had already dressed and
gone; Cam slipped into a black satin
that he especially liked.
4ATHERE were cocktails and canaps
,/and pleasant talk in the low-
ceiled farmhouse parlor; the radio was
softly sounding the Christmas hymns,
played on some great organ, sung be
fifty voices. A big fire was burning; the
Christmas tree was lighted; it seemed
good to be home for Christmas night.
Cam slipped into a chair beside John.
"I've been in a simple tantrum all
day," he said in a voice only she could
hear. " But the minute I see my wife
I'm all right!'
" 'ou in a tantrum!" she echoed,
amazed, anxious eyes on his face. But
they could say no more without being
overheard. The Christmas dinner fol-
lowed its appointed course. Aunt
Maria left at ten o'clock. Mrs. Kil-
garif and Tids lingered for a few
minutes saying good nights, and then
Cam and John went upstairs.
By this time Cam in her concern for
Jack's disturbed mood had almost for-
gotten her resentment against Toomey.
In any caseJohn gave her small chance
to remember it. He flung his arms
\\ ho wouldtl get excitd   \ 'er a
