THE MANZANITA 7 eager boys had met the train early that morning and had watched the fascinating performance of unpack- ing. And now the time for the big parade was drawing near. On the corner of Main and Park Streets Mrs. Domineus stood, holding little Janet by the hand, but Azalia, not eontented to wateh from the walk, had mounted a soap box. "Oh! Mother, will it never come? l'm so tired," ealled Janet. t'Here, Azalia," said the little mother, Htake Jannie up there with you. She is too small to see any- thing from here and the erowd jostles her so." Hlndeed, I won't," snapped Aza- lia. 'Ll found this box and brought if here for my own use, not for the whole family. Besides l'm not go- ing to be bothered with-Oh! here it eomes-here it comes," she squealed. Yes, it was really coming. The band, perehed upon a gilded wagon, burst i11to a spirited n1are'h. The glossy black horses tossed their be- ribboned heads and lifted their feet high in the air with eaeh step. And sueh a parade! Croftville, gather- ed on the curbs of Main Street, eheered and eheered. Wagoli after wagon passed-a cage of lions-a den of snakes-a eage of dogs-air other of lions-a polar bear-seals, some camels-and-"Oh! Mother- see the little ponies and look at that white Teddy bear ! " "Oh! Oh!" breathed Azalia, "that beautiful horse-look-see him pranee-and look at that lovely lady-all in red-my, ain't she grand!" "Hello! Mary," whined a voiee, and Azalia looked down to see the tiniest of clowns, riding on a white donkey. 'tHello, Mary," he called again. He was looking at her! Should she answer? "Hello, Mary dear!" This time he waved his hand. The parade was moving slowly on. He would be gone in a moment! Quick! he was looking now. "Hello," she quavered weakly. The word seemed to choke her. The rest of the parade passed slowly by her but Azalia's mind was still on Tilly Tad. She decided he was a- bout ber age, perhaps a little older. She stood as one in a dream. The golden rave ehariots-the ele- phants-the minstrel band-the gi- raffes-the zebra with its monkey rider-all reeeived merely a glanee from Azalia. "Come down, Azalia," urged the mother, Heome home with us. You have seen it all-why, what on earth is the matter, child? You look so queer-brush that hair out of your eyes and please don't bite your finger nails, Azalia!" "Oh! Mother, let me stay till it comes back. It won't be long and l'll hurry home. Oh! please, Mum- sie! Here-I'll take Jannie up on my box, if you will. " Well ' '-she eonvsented-' ' here, take Janet and do hurry. I want to set the table." With these words she left them. The band began to play again as the parade turned and started back. Azalia waited impat-iently till the white donkey appeared-yes, there it came and there was Tiny Tad in his cute lit- tle red and white suit and tasseled eap. Oh! if he would only look this way! VVould he wave and call a- gain? No, he was looking toward the other side of the street. All at once Azalia heard him say to Sadie
