"You can't celebrate Christmas In
this hole in the wall." Blake Preston
lighted another cigar and looked
through the blue haze at his easy go
"Can't, eh?" retorted Aldls, smiling
toward the door. "Just ask Bessie
what she thinks about It"
"What do I think about what?" asked
"Blake says we can't celebrate
Christmas properly In this 'hole In the
wall.' That's what he called our apart
ment 1 say, old man," turning to
Blake, with a grin, "If you had to"
Blake waved a large hand. "Not
being married, I don't have to," he said
loftily. "What I want to know Is:
now can you celebrate Christmas prop
erly in these few rooms? How does
Santa Claus get into the house come
down the fire escape or the gas pipe?"
Bessie laughed scornfully. "Ton
goose! Of course be comes down the
big central chimney of the Bemislawn
apartments, and once In the cellar he
comes up In the elevator and over the
transoms into the different rooms."
"No chance for me to play Santa
Claus, then," mourned Blake gloomily.
"Oh, Blake, you dear boyl Did yon
want to?" cried Bessie.
"Of course I did! Haven't been home
for five years and hare almost for
gotten what Christmas is a real
Christmas, yon know, with snow and
all that sort of thing. If I had known
you bad closed up the farmhouse this
"who. abb you V
year I would have stayed down In
Panama and eaten my Christmas din
ner In the shade of the palm."
"Then we will find some way out of
it if we have to go down and open the
farmhouse." said Arthur Aldls decid
edly. "Brrrrrrrl" shivered Bessie, stretch
ing out slender fingers to the steam
radiator. "It's mighty cold down
there, boys. Last Christmas little Bess
caught a horrible cold. Ton remem
ber, don't you, Arthur?"
"Of course, only I do want Blake to
have a good, old fashioned Christmas
once in five years. He will be going
back to Panama again before spring."
"I was half joking," protested Blake
warmly. "Of course I believe that
home is where the heart' is' and that
Christmas can be celebrated on a des
ert island if one has the right spirit,
but somehow 1 seem to have lacked
the proper spirit of late years. Guess
I was homesick."
Aldls and his wife exchanged a swift
glance of understanding. They both
knew what had driven Blake Preston
down into the canal zone, where there
was big work to be done work that
required all the brain and sinew of
strong men. leaving them little time
for vain regrets. When Blake Pres
ton's engagement to Edltha Wayne had
been broken neither his sister nor her
husband. Arthur Aldls, put out a de
taining hand when be packed his
trunks and went away. They under
stood. Sometimes they talked it over
together, but they were not surprised
becuuse Blake remained away five
years, neither were they surprised
when be suddenly returned to New
York a week before Christmas.
"Tou'H spend your Christmas with
us, Blake." pleaded his sister. "You
won't go off to any horrid old club
"Of course I'll spend It here, Bessie,"
be said, leaning down to kiss her sun
ny hair. "I shall stay here all day
and take up much more room than you
can really spare. I suppose you buy a
'flat' tree for a 'flaf Christmas, eh?"
"Don't you worry about the tree, old
man," assured bis brother-in-law. "It
will be as large as we can get up 00
the dumb waiter."
"The dumb waiter. Bless my soul,
I never thought of that I'll see you
lbout that Santa Claus business to
morrow, Arthur. I've got an idea."
Blake thrust himself Into his overcoat
and picked up his hat, for be slept at
a nearby hotel.
"Poor old Uluke!" murmured Aldls
regretfully after he had gono.
Bessie slgln-d softly. "I've always
hoped that some day" she paused and
kissed the top of her husband's head
"that Blake and Edltha would make
up and be as happy as we are."
"See Edltha lately?" asked Aldls.
j "I haven't breathed a word to you,
but, Arthur, dear, she and her mother
are living in the Bemislawn too."
"Here? In this house?"
"Yes. 1 met ber in the vestibule the
other day. She was so surprised to see
me. It 8ecrus that she supposed we
j were still living down at the farm."
' "If we are near neighbors l etliaps
she and Blake might meet. Who
1 knows?"' Aldls smiled.
Blake Preston's preparations for
I Christmas were many and varied, for
he bud planned to enact the part of
Santa Claus and demonstrate to bis
self satisfied relatives the fai t that if
good old St Nicholas was deprived
of his legitimate mode of entry, the
chimney, there had been provided an
other and more modern entrance. He
would surprise them by arriving on the
This daring scheme Involved a long
interview with the janitor of the Bem
islawn, who was converted from scorn
ful skepticism of the scheme to be
come a warm adherent to Blake's plan.
Of course this conversion was accom-1
panled by an interesting pantomime '
between the two men, Blake's hand go- j
ing back and forth to his well filled !
wallet and the janitor's palm closing
uyou cruc&ung paper money. Alter
that they both went and investigated
the dumb waiter.
It was a very large dumb waiter,
operated by electricity, and could be !
stopped at any floor from below. It
was meant to carry supplies to the
different tenants of the Bemislawn.
and the janitor was positive that It
could easily sustain a weight of 500
It was snowy, wind swept Christ
mas eve, and the Aldis family were
gathered in the dining room of their ;
flat, in accordance with -Blake's In-
structlons. The children were nqulver j
with anticipation, for Uncle Blake had
hinted broadly that Santa Claus would
surely appear in person that evening,
and they expected blm to appear via
the fire escape or the transom and 1
watched accordingly. No one thought
of the dumb waiter.
Down In the basement It was hot
enough and almost unbearable by tbo
time Blake had buttoned himself into
a fur overcoat, adjusted a Santa Claus
mask and wig and tied on a luppeted
cap. A well packed sack found place
between his knees when he had crowd
ed into the dumb waiter.
"I hope she won't break down I'll
lose my job If she does," remarked the
janitor cheerfully as he prepared to
start Blake on his strange journey to
the fourth floor.
"You said it would carry 600. 1
weigh only 100." protested Blake. "If
anything happens, my man"
"Nothing will happen," assured the
janitor hastily, and without more par
ley he sent the waiter up.
Something did happen and soon
after Blake had starteed tip in the
stifling cage. The dumb waiter came
to a sudden standstill, and -there was
no way of knowing whether be bad
reached the fourth floor or not. but
he was sure he had not.
Then a bell tinkled near at hand,
footsteps tripped across the floor, and
the darkness of bis cage was banished
by the 1 sliding back of a door. He
saw the interior of a little blue and
white kitchen just like Bessie Aldls'. '
As he scrambled out into the light
there was a sharp outcry, and the girl ,
who bad opened the door of the dumb
waiter fled to the opposite wall and
stared at his strangely appareled form.
"Who are you? What do you want?"
she asked in a frightened voice.
By this time Blnke Preston realized
that he had blundered into the wrong
flat. But was it the wrong flat? He
continued to, stare at the girl with
mingled feelings of joy and chagrin
joy because it was none other than his
lost love, Edltha Wayne, who stood
before him; chagrin because of the!
ridiculous plight in which he tjtood.
"I have made a mistake," he stam
mered at last "I was to be let off at
the fourth floor. I am afraid I cannot
continue my journey on the dumb
waiter and must trouble you to show
me to the corridor."
At the sound of bis voice a rose
color drifted across ber face, leaving
it deadly white. '
"Who are you?" she repeated with
Blake's pride prompted him to leave,
but his love would have its way now.
He tore off rap and mask and wig
and looked at her from pleading blue
Edltha stat'sd at bim. drinking In all
the beloved lines of his face. Then
she held out ber bands to him.
"Oh. Blake, your coming Is the only
gift I craved. You will not leave me
"Never!" cried Blake as he held her
In his arms. Later be said soberly:
"I guess love is the basis of that
Christmas spirit Aldls and Bessie were
talking about. I am so happy I would
endow the whole world with joy if I
Blake picked up the mask and cap.
"Let us go upstairs and see them and

Perhaps the janitor of the Bemis
lawn was the roost surprised of all.

let him off at the wrong floor." be ex

l THE WHITE "SIX"
i A man doesn't have to be a mechanic to recognize the simplicity of the WHITE motor. If n
A man doesn't have to be a mechanic to recognize the simplicity of the WHITE motor. If
he is at all familiar with the appearance of motors he will be likely to think, looking at a
WHITE, that some parts are missing. It is all there, 'however, and whatever parts have been
eliminated result in its efficiency, simplicity and economy of operation. To the average man
the WHITE motor is the most attractive part of the car because its probability to need repairs is
minimized, and, if it does need adjusting its construction is not so bewildering that he cannot
make minor repairs himself, however little he may know of mechanics.
Five Important Features of White Motors
First of all, tbe tout cylinders are oast en bloc -that li io one pleoe. Thin construction gives a rigidity to the crank oase and
keeps the bearings in alignment.
The cylinders each hav a three and three-fourth inch bore and five and one-eighth tneb stroke. The stroke is very long in pro
portion to the bore, resulting In Increased power with less effort, wbloh means maximum efflolenoy and gasoline eoooomy.
There are four forward speeds, with direct drive on tbo third, which means a speed for every condition, giving greater road
enlclency, and muklng It unnecessary to overtax the engine at any time.
WHITE motors are equipped with a honeycomb radiator in which tbe cooling surface la practically twice that of any ordinary
kind. This radiator is the most efficient of which we know, and, because of its high cost, ta used only in the better grade of cars.
A double oiling system is used. After ubriciting, the connecting rod bearings, tbe oil drops into the crank case, whore it is
used in the regular splash system. Besides being a very effective means of lubrication, tbe conomyof using tbe oil twloela
apparent. The crank shaft casing and tbe sldejilu tea on the motor, which when removed make the crank shaft accessible, con
fines the oil to the Inside of the motor, preventing a general besmearing with oil wblob would otherwise ocour.
