PART III - CHAPTER I
A NEW START IN LIFE

little cheeks with her handkerchief, soothing, kissing, fondling the bewildered mite, smoothing the wet strands of brown hair under the scrap of cotton bonnet, twitching the inevitable baby cape into order. It was a pretty baby, with wisps of brown-gold silken hair, and large blue eyes.
'Is it a girl?' I asked one of the boys. `How old is she?'
`I don't know,' he answered awkwardly, `we 've 'ad 'er about a three week.'
'Why, isn't she your sister?'

`Poor little lamb!' cried Meg, in another access of pity, clasping the baby to her bosom with one hand, holding its winsome slippered feet in the other. She remained thus, stung through with acute pity, crouching, folding herself over the mite. At last she raised her head, and said, in a voice difficult with emotion:
`But you love her-don't you?'
'Yes- -she 's-she 's all right. But we 'ave to mind 'er,' replied the boy in great confusion.

` Wheer 's 'er dummy ?' asked one of the boys in muffled, self-conscious tones. The infant began to cry thinly. Meg crouched over it. The 'dummy' was found in the gutter and wiped on the boy's coat, then plugged into the baby's mouth. Meg released the tiny clasping hand from over her finger, and mounted the dog-cart, saying sternly to the boys:
'Mind you look after her well, poor little baby with no mother. God's watching to see what you do to her-so you be careful, mind.'
They stood very shamefaced. George clicked to the
