"Dont bother," Isabel said loftily. Youve broken dates with Jne before. Bill Martin. This is the last time. Im getting me another beau." She was regal in the white and silver.

In the cheap little house she was like an exotic flower. "You tellln me? Bill demanded truculently. "Youre my girl, arent you? And were gettin married soon, arent we? "Are we?" Isabel shrugged, "First I heard of it. "Well, you know It nqw, said the man. He was staring at her as if he had never seen her before.

When she had talked so boastfully to Daisy and the others of her probable marriage to Bill she had been whistling in the dark.

How did you ever get a boy to the point where he proposed? She didnt know. Maybe shed go on like this forever, working at the shop, coming home to a dirty house, getting older by the minute, not having anything she wanted. How nice it would be, Isabel mused, staring around the dark, shabby little room, to have pretty things, to have beaux and dates galore. While you were young thats when it counted because, after all, it wouldnt matter when she was older. She wouldnt care, then.

"Oh, sis, a box came for you today. Mary Maud, gangling and pale at 11, in a gingham dress a size too small, came to stand and stare from the door. A box? How? By parcel post? Bundles of any sort were an event In this family. "I dont know. No, I think someone left it at the door.

She tore open the square creamy envelope. There was a signature. Sally Moon. Why, of all things. "Dear Isabel: Im going to Paris for a year.

You said something the last time you did my hair about getting married. Dont say I gave this to you. The old cats have talked enough already. Good luck. "Well, I never thought she even liked me, marvelled Isabel.

Casual, careless Sally had sent her the wedding dress! "Try it on, sis. Try it on. Both dingy little girls were hopping about in an ecstasy of excitement. They forgot about time, forgot about food. Isabel emerged from the scrubby cubicle which served as a bathroom, her arms and face gleaming from recent scrubbing.

She slipped the lovely frock over her head. Ooh-ooh, dont you look nice! Even Daisy said It, reluctantly but convincingly. When you have never before in your life owned a really decent frock, Isabel thought, revolving before the square of mirror, its heaven to own -one, at last It works magic for you. Lost in her dreams, she didnt hear the doorbell. Didnt hear Bills deep growl in response to Mary Mauds piping treble.

"Tell her I cant make the game, absurd accusations against me, except that I was once fond of you, and I realize parents are notably silly in matters of this sort. Im sorry, said the man, knowing himself dismissed. Violet felt that absurd pity welling up in her heart again.

Leach at one time nationally famous in the annals of Arctic exploration, and the last survivor of the ill-fated Jeanette expedition. He went to sea when scarcely more than a boy, and sailed to the out of way places of the world. When still a youth, he joined an Arctic expedition, which sailed from San Francisco aboard the steamer Jeanette in 1879. The vessel was crushed beneath Arctic ice that same year, and recently Leach was awarded a Congressional Medal of Honor for Heroism in connection with the sinking of the ship. Leach and twelve others reached a Russian outpost after months of hardship.

Leachs feet were badly frozen and two toes were amputated by a Russian surgeon. Fully recovered, the thirteen set out in search of Lieutenant Commander G. W. Delong and the 18 other members of the Jeanettes crew, all of whom, they later learned, perished trying to reach Siberia. Almost three years from the day the expedition sailed from San Francisco, Leach and his twelve companions arrived back in the United States.
