She descended the stone steps lead
ing from the house in which she had
a miniature homo. Delphine firew
ater wroked on u morning newspaper,
and her work kept tiwi* away from
homo until hil. Tonight sho had ab
seut-nilndtdly left her key iuslde the
apartment, and did not realize that
Khe had done lt UUtll HOW.
At duylight sho could get a lock
?lilith to o;ien the door for her, but
It was nearly six hours until abe
could expect to approach such a con
venience. Tho spring night air was
chilly and Delphine did not entertain
with much joy thu prospect of walk
ing about the streets all night.
"If I had a laprobo I could make
myself comfortable in a park, but I
should freeze my?elf Into pneumonia
without Liie," ahe considered as she
uuused one of the neat but now lone
ly B(|uares of tho neighborhood.
Whenever eho saw anyone approach
lng e'e Immediately began to walk
briskly as if with a purpose, and
kept up this galt until the passerby
was well out of earshot.
At four o'clock she felt as If she
could walk no longer, and in spite
of thc fear of cold she sat down on
a bench In Franklin square. Not
another BOUI was In sight. She al
most wished it were one of the big
New York parks, where she would
nt least have tho society of other
"Va^rantB? I never expected to be
a vagrant. Why-I might even be
arrested. Then I'd lose my precious
position and my career would be gone.
Father would never let me go away
from home again if he knew of this."
In tho midst of those soliloquies,
she saw an automobile dash around
the.corner of the square and atop be
fore a house on the opposite side of
the square and In which sho had al
ready noticed many- lights.
A young woman jumped out first
and ran up tho steps to the house.
Tho man stopped to throw a robe care
fully over tho engine' of the car, and
cs he paused under the now illumin
ated archwuy of the door she saw that
he carried a bag.
"It must bo a doctor-and there ls
illness," Delphine decided.
She was nearly stiff with cold by
now and began to walk again. She
crossed the small square and passed
the house In front of which the au
tomobile stood. She stopped for a
moment and looked Into the warm,
"Why not?" she asked herself sud
denly, stealing & quick glance at th?
house. I would be gone by the time
he veturned. I-I can't resist lt!" Bhe
almost whispered, she was so cold
It v/as all she could do to keep from
crying as she felt the soft comfort
of tho leather cushion and tucked the
rug about her. Every minute she
told herself that she would get out
and proceed on her lonely way, but
every minute brought her further
comfort and she could see no sign of
anyone coming from within.
At last Delphine slept; she slept In
a strange automobile on a city street
at 4:30 o'clock in the morning. She
bad been too utterly weary to resiBt
tho call of sleep.
When Bhe awoke an hour and a
half later it was to look into the
anxious eyes of Dr. Baldwin Gray.
Ho waa bending over her. She was
not sure that he had not shaken her;
she recalled having been dreaming
that someone was trying to waken her.
"Oh!" sho said, sitting erect She
took In long drafts of fresh morning
air and rubbed her eyes.
"You-olept." said the man.
Delphine nodded. Then she looked
closely? at him. "Why-lt's Doctor
Gray," Bho cried. "How-how strange!"
"Remember you have the advantage
over me in that you know my name.
You did not give me your name the
first and only time I saw you-when
you came to my office to have a fin

"I'm Delphine Brewster," explained
tho girl. "And I'll be getting eut

DAY OF ENFORCEMENT
OF LAW IS^ AT HAND
POLICE TO CRACK DOWN ON
VIOLATORS OF PETTY
LOOK OUT DOGS
Canine Found on Streets With
out Muzzles Will be
Speed laws, cut-out laws, drive to
the right laws, und several other
law:; are to be enforced today. The
police have warned autoists and oth
ers of the violation of these ordi
nances and the time limit of the warn
ing ls now passed. Arrests will be
made today of cases where the driv
er was warned yesterday.
At the last council meeting the
police were instructed to enforce s?v
irai ordinances rigidly and this is
going to b edone. The cut-out can
not be used on the city Btreets and
the drive to the right laws uro to
be enforced. These two ordinances
.viii be brought to bear on the auto
>wners of the city from this time on
with a renewed vigor, and fines will
take tlie place of the warnings which
have heretofore been given.
All dogs running a tlarge without
muzzles will be shot. The owners o?
these animals arc cautioned to keep
ihe dogs in the yards or have them
muzzled. The enforcement of this
ordinance has grown out of the fact
that several children have been bitten
uy dogs within the past few weeks.
'Dog days" are coming and of course
herc will be an occasional rabid dog.
Muzzle all of them and avoid trouble.
One other thing which the police
are anxious to have done is the num
bering of all cars in the city. There
are a number of autos which have
license tags which is badly broken,
part of tlie lettering dropped oe.
lome, have just a number scratched
m a piece of card board. To have
the number scratched With a pencil
m a piece of cardboard ls as much a
violation of the law as to have no
lumber at all. The law requires a
regulation slze tag and this ls the
only thing which ls to be used.

A referee lu bankruptcy has been
appointed for Anderson county by
Judge J. T. Johnson, recently ap

There is some difference of opinion
between Judge Johnson and Smith
in regard to this matter, as Judge
Smith is of the opinion that a referee
is not needed for Anderson county.
Judge Johnson has appointed Mr.
Jurran E. Cooley referee in Anderson
:ounty and Mr. Hnrry Hughes, of
Walhalla, referee for Oconee county.
Mr. Samuel Wolfe was the referee
for Anderson county bu upon becom
ing a member of the legislature he
resigned: All matters due to come

' ty have gone to Greenville county and
this has been a great inconvenience
to Andersonians. People of both An
j derson and Oconee counties will wei

The following order, with regard
to tho creation of the Anderson of

Cooley, as referee was signed by
Judge Johnson in Greenville yester

that she was not a business girl in
the Btrict sense of the word. Other

For an habitually level-headed man
Vance had doue a rather senseleap
thing in falling in love with a girl
whom he had not the power to be
come acquainted with. At least that
power had not made itself manifest
nor had kindly fate come along tc
help him in his love affair.
Kindly fate did not enter the affair
until Vance had beeu gazing In silent
admiration for nearly three months at
the girl's alluring beauty.
One bright morning In early May
Vance noticed that as the girl stood in
the bookstall she had made the pur
chase of a sign, on which was printed
in bold letters "Room to Let."
For the first time since catching
Bight of her Vance followed her
stealthily home. *J>
When he had made sure of the
number of the more or less shabby
dwelling in which she lived. Vance
went back to the elevated station and
down to business. When he returned
from the office and made his way to
ward the address of the girl he saw
the sign in tbe window of a room that
seemed to be three flights up.
He mounted the brown stone steps
leading to the front door and was ad
mitted by a slatternly woman. Vance
hoped lt waa not the wonder-girl's
The woman vas neither polite nor
gracious, but told him there was one
rn the top floor. He could go up and
ree lt if he wanted to. With that she
shuffled off to the basement and left
Vance to find his way up those three
flights of stairs.
Once there he succeeded in gaining
his breath, then stood gazing at the
closed doora of four rooms.
After a second's thought he reasoned
ouc the room that had the sign ia lt
and knocked on tho door.
He drew a sharp breath when the
girl herself opened it. For a mcment
Bhe, too, waa nervously silent.
"This room," blurted Vance, sudden
ly. Hs to let-isn't Itt**
The girl found voice and command
o the situation first and opened the
door for him to enter. Vance did ao
and aaw a cozy room that waa ap
parently the den of a writer.
"My landlady la moat disagreeable,'.'
the girl told Vance, -and there was a
sparkle of mirth in her eyes. "I have
contracted for this room for a year
and she refuses to let me go until
September. If I can sublet lt-of
course, she cannot object,"
Vance heaved a alga of relief. The
vcnder-glrl waa in no way connected
with the awful person who bad let bim
into the house.
"1 haven't any furniture." he said
"I thought tho room would be fur
Oh-I do want to let lt furnished,'
she told him quickly. "You see '' she
added shyly, "I have been selling lots
of stories lately and can afford a f-JW
months at the sea. But," she sighed,
"I am-a prisoner in town so long as
this room, hangs on my hands." Her
eyes were looking softly into Vance's
own. The man wondered afterward
how he refrained from telling her at
their very first meeting Just how des
perately he loved, her and had loved
Her for three long months. He did
have *'je temerity to speak quite frank
ly and, looking with peculiar meaning
st. her, said:
"lt you will select a summer hotel

this room and consider myself a most
The wonaer-girl tried not to admit
the meaning In hts look, but a soft
color' creeping into her cheeks told
Vanee that she quite understood the
situation. He smiled and the girl
caught the smile and responded.
''My landlady ls the moat awful per-,

my tarni ture In the autumn when I
return to town and you won't like so
many stairs to climb and-" she would
have said Blore in her nervous excite

relieve the strain.
"I can stand anything," he told her.
