when Iiurke's tall companion Interrupt

the old town again, the darlt hour that
lay upon It and the thought of the mis

"Just think this was your world all
the time that you were a kid. Every
one of these two story buildings must
have loomed like a skyscraper then."
"Cut the comedy. Slim," Burke broke
in, halting his hurried pace a bit to
express himself more forcibly. "It's
nil familiar enough. These towns
around here haven't had a new brick

folks in them are as changeless as that
statue of 'Justice' up there on top of
the courthouse unless it is that some
of the kids have grown up. And if
they've grown up very much they've
pulled out like I did."
They had reached the center of the
town a point where the main street

from the depot. "That's the joint." he
said as he throw his thumb over bis
shoulder toward the brick building on
the corner. The tall man turned to

"It looks soft." he answered after a
shrewd scrutiny of Uk surroundings,
"but it's one thing to crack them these
days and another thing to pet away.
The way we've planned, though. I
can't see where there can be a leak."
"Right on this corner Is where the
show bands used to circle and play,"
explained Burke, "and from this cross
ing down there to the park was the
distance sot off for the WO yard dashes
on the Fourth of July. I won one of
them once with my pants rolled ud
and wearing a pair of white wool
socks. They said I was over the age fix
ed and wouldn't give me the money."
At Burke's initiative the two started
on down the street. '
"Hero's Uie hotel," he went on la
the tone of a guide. "It's where you'll
stop. You can look the part of a Chi

was nt the task of getting dinner ns he
stalked half dressed through the kitch
en on the way to the sinlf.
"There, now. can't a fellow come
home once in awhile without there be

man gave a little startled cry and rush
ed toward him. Whore's pa?" he in
quired, forcing the arms away from

"I wasn't counting , on you," his
mother answered apologetically. ip

ing for the pantry. Burke noticed that
she limped in her walk. She had aged,
his mother had.
The door she opened gave a glimpse
of the queer shaped and colored dishes
such as lie had never seen except at
home. They were accompanied by an
odor that had been peculiar to them
too. His mother came back with one
of the biggest jars from the row on
the shelf currant jelly.
Burke was wiping his face on the
red bordered towel when his father
came in. The old man had his rake in
his hand nnd slowly removed his slouch
black hat before he spoke.
"Well," he said, "you've come home."
The removal of the hat showed how
white his hair had become, and his
face was like it in spite of its contact
with sun and wind. lie came over to
wash his gnarled bands in the same
basin witli his son.
"I've the garden nearly all in again."
he continued finally. "I'm going to
put in onions again this year. They
take lots of work, but if the season
turns out just right they bring more
than other stuff."
Burke noticed that the table had
been shortened up until the checkered
cloth touched the floor on all sides, but
the dishes were the same, the food
cooked the same.
"How long you going to stay?" the
father inquired at length, pouring his
coffee into a saucer.
"Oh. I only 'II bo here a day or two,"
answered Burke. "It's pretty dead
here after one is used to Chicago."
"Just n day?" his mother fluttered.
"Still traveling . for that Chicago
house?" the father interrupted to in
quire, eying his son as be cooled the
coffee nt his lips. "Times ain't boon
so very good out here."
"I'm still with them," sparred
Burke. "It's been a little dull with
us, too, lately, but" he faltered for an
Instant "we're expecting quite a big
piece of business out this way soon."
"The plaster on the wall back of
you's all healed up now. Do you no
tice it?" the father went on. pointing
to Burke to turn around. "You three
boys used to lean back so much when
you sat together there on the bench
that it was always broke off. There
wasn't much use fixing it."
The mother entirely ceased with her
pretension at eating and nervously fin
gored the tablecloth.

effort to appear unaffected by the ref

Burke sought the lounge in the sit
