PART II - CHAPTER I
STRANGE BLOSSOMS AND STRANGE NEW BUDDING

Leslie had given her, and their remarks were pungent. She heard them, and they burned in her heart. From my mother she inherited democratic views, which she noW proceeded to debate warmly with her lover.
Then she tried to talk to Leslie about the strike. lie heard her with mild superiority, smiled, and said she did not know. Women jumped to conclusions at the first touch of feeling; men must look at a thing all round, then make a decision-nothing hasty and impetuous-careful, long-thought-out, correct decisions. Women could not be expected to understand these things, business was not for them; in fact, their mission was above business-etc, Unfortunately I:ettie was the wrong woman to treat thus.
`So!' said she, with a quiet, hopeless tone of finality.
`There now, you understand, don't you, Minnehaha, my Laughing Water?-So laugh again, darling, and don't worry about these things. We will not talk about them any more, eh?'
`No more.'
`No more-that 's right-you are as wise as an angel. Come here-pooh, the wood is thick and lonely! Look, there is nobody in the world but us, and you are my heaven and earth!'
`And hell?'
` Ah-if you are so cold-how cold you are!-it gives me little shivers when you look so-and I am always hot -Lettie ! '
`Well?'
`You are cruel! Kiss me-now-No, I don't want your cheek-kiss me yourself. Why don't you say something?' 'What for? What 's the use of saying anything when there's nothing immediate to say?' 'You are offended ! '
`It feels like snow to-day,' she answered.
At last, however, winter began to gather her limbs, to rise, and drift with saddened garments northward.
The strike was over. The men had compromised. It was a gentle way of telling them they were beaten. But the strike was over.
The birds fluttered and dashed; the catkins on the hazel
