DANGLING THE APPLE


to bed. We bade them good night, and sat down. Annie, the servant, had gone home, so Emily prepared the supper.
'Nobody can touch that piano like you, said Mr. Saxton to Lettie, beaming upon her with admiration and deference. He was proud of the stately, mumbling old thing, and used to say that it was full of music for those that liked to ask for it. Lettie laughed, and said that so few folks ever tried it, that her honour was not great.
'What do you think of our George's singing?' asked the father proudly, but with a deprecating laugh at the end.
` I tell him, when he's in love he'll sing quite well,' she said.
'When he 's in love!' echoed the father, laughing aloud, very pleased.
`Yes,' she said, `when he finds out something he wants and can't have.'
George thought about it, and he laughed also.
Emily, who was laying the table said: `There is hardly any water in the pipkin, George.'
'Oh, dash!' he exclaimed, 'I 've taken my boots off.'
'It 's not a very big job to put them on again,' said his sister.
'Why couldn't Annie fetch it-what's she here for?' he said angrily.
Emily looked at us, tossed her head, and turned her back on him.
'I'll go, I'll go, after supper,' said the father in a comforting tone.
`After supper!' laughed Emily.
George got up and shuffled out. He had to go into the spinney near the house to a well, and being warm disliked turning out.
We had just sat down to supper when Trip rushed barking to the door. `Be quiet,' ordered the father, thinking of those in bed, and he followed the dog.
It was Leslie. He wanted Lettie to go home with him at once. This she refused to do, so he came indoors, and was persuaded to sit down at table. He swallowed a morsel of bread and cheese, and a cup of coffee, talking to Lettie of a garden party which was going to be arranged at Iiighclose for the following week.
