    "There just isn't anything to be glad about, that I can see," she said aloud; "unless—it's to be glad when the duty's done!" Whereupon she laughed suddenly.

    "A little girl—coming here, Miss Harrington? Oh, won't that be nice!" cried Nancy, thinking of the sunshine her own little sisters made in the home at "The Corners."

    "And now I know, and I'm glad you look just like you do look."

    Nancy was relieved just then to have Timothy come up. Pollyanna's words had been most confusing.

    "This is Timothy. Maybe you have a trunk," she stammered.

    "Yes, I have," nodded Pollyanna, importantly. "I've got a brand-new one. The Ladies' Aid bought it for me—and wasn't it lovely of them, when they wanted the carpet so?
