Eloise looked at the old woman for a moment, almost refusing to be- lieve what she had heard. " I don ' t get married? Don ' t teach? " " No! " answered the gypsy. " Just have fun — good time — why? — you know how — be good teacher — but you play — always play ! " then she paused. " Well! " said Eloise, " What am I going to do? " But the old woman seemed to be dreaming. She passed her fingers lightly along the girl ' s hand and finally she said, " I see you — you are in a big house — children — big yard — fine clothes — nice flowers — music — but you work — for other woman! " Eloise drew a sharp breath. What was the old woman saying? Then she jumped to her feet and taking a quarter from her purse she gave it to the gypsy, saying, " Now go ! " The old woman took the money and mumbling to herself she moved off through the shadows to the road. Eloise watched her go and as she stood alone in the moonlight she began to think. The last picture that the fortune-teller had painted was not a pleasant one. Would it really come to that? Was she really wasting her time? Just playing? She sat down at the foot of the tree and the hour that she spent alone was not a pleasant one. But at the end of that hour Eloise Vane had found herself and it was a different girl that mentally cancelled her engagement that night with Earle Morris. She picked up her suitcase and walked slowly through the soft moonlight of a spring night back to the dormito ry and the duties of Kent State Normal. K. G. G. 64

All unconscious of these remarks, Eloise was hurrying across the campus. The moon had come up and the big trees were throwing long shadows across the path. Eloise stopped. Was someone coming toward her or was it just a trick of her imagination? " I wonder who it can be? " thought Eloise. She did not have to wonder long for a queer-looking old woman stepped out of the shadows. " Tell your fortune, Miss? " " No! " said Eloise, " I haven ' t time. " " Yes, Miss! I tell your fort une, — only twenty-five cents! You are beautiful — You must have many admirers, — Yes? " This last statement was too much for Eloise and she set her suitcase down, perfectly willing to listen to all that the old woman might tell her. " You stay — and listen? " said the crafty old gypsy. " Yes! " answered Eloise. " Go on! " They stepped out of the path and sat down at the foot of a big tree. After a moment of silence Eloise said, " So you think I am beautiful? " " Yes, very beautiful! " answered the old woman as she took the girl ' s hand. There was hardly light enough for the fortune-teller to see the hand she was holding but she seemed to feel the lines readily with her fingers for soon she said, " You have many admirers, — very many — you will marry soon. " Eloise smiled. " You live here? " asked the gypsy. " No! " answered Eloise, " this is a school. " " Oh!— You go to school. Why? " " I ' m going to be a teacher. " " No! You no teach — get married! " " Not teach, " thought Eloise, " what could she be talking about? " But the old woman kept on, letting her fingers follow the lines in the girl ' s hand. " You have one man — no — two, — more maybe. You go much — have good time. " All this pleased Eloise. The gypsy was smil- ing but soon the smile faded and she looked sharply at the girl beside her. After a moment she spoke again. " I see you — five — maybe ten years — you not teach — you have too much good time here — you not study — not teach ! " Eloise thought a moment, then she smiled, " Do I get married? " she asked. " No — not get married. You have many admirers — but not get mar- ried — play too much — fool ' em. They don ' t know — don ' t like. You don ' t get married — get old alone! " 63
