CHAPTER I. THE FIRST DAY OUT.

"The water's very black this morning. Lydies wouldn't bithe in it," called the voice of the stewardess outside the stateroom door.

"This lydy would," answered Wilhelmina Campbell from the top berth. "She's only talking," she added in a lower tone. "A cold salt bath, please, stewardess."

"Very well, mum. Will the other lydy have a bath?"

"Nancy, hot or cold?" demanded Billie, dangling one foot out of the berth to attract her friend's attention.

Nevertheless, Billie ordered hot tea from the stewardess as she slipped on her dressing gown and started on her pilgrimage to the bathroom. The ship was rolling mightily, and not many people were bathing that morning, but Billie was an old traveler, and she staggered cheerfully along the ship's passage, and in fifteen minutes had emerged glowing from her cold plunge. On the way back she stopped at the stateroom occupied by her cousin, Miss Helen Campbell, and her two other friends, Elinor Butler and Mary Price.

"Come in," called her cousin's voice in a sad, colorless tone.

"Why, dearest Cousin Helen," exclaimed Billie, bursting into the stateroom, "you aren't seasick, too?"
