She left them and went on Into
the house, lonffing. and yet dreading.
to meet the Fortune Hunter,
but though he came In to lunch
and talked to her as though nothing
had happened, he made no
effort to see her alone, and she
was too proud now to make any
That he looked wretchedly ill
she could see for herself, but she
hardened her heart. If he cared
nothing for her neither would
she care for him, and so the miserable
game went on, and the
shadow between them deepened
and another weary day dragged to
Jefca Saitk*i Will.
Anne went up to bed early that
night because she felt that she
could bear no more. There had
seemed something unnatural and
terrible about the whole day to her,
and yet in the silence of her own
room she wondered once more if
her own overstrung nerves had not
been more *han half responsible for
She had said good night to the
Fortune Hunter with a cold touch
of her hand, not daring to raise
her eyes to his. and now she was
longing with all her heart to go
downstairs again and put her arms
round his neck and sob out ali her
Tommy had been sulky all day,
watching her with half-ashamed,
half-angry eyes, but for the first
time in her life she was not sorry
for the way in which sh? had
turned on him.
How dared he spy on John?
Her face burned now as she
thought of the humiliation she had
suffered when he showed her that
letter, of the jealousy that had been
torturing her ever since.
John had said that he did not
know Irenie! It was a lie. It must
have been a lie! and yet?his eyes I
had met hers steadfastly enough
when he said it and there had been
no shame in his face.
She went to the window, and.
drawing aside the blind, looked out
nto the garden.
If only she had said good-night
to him? If only sbe had kissed
bim! The constraint of that day
seemed to have made an impassable
gulf between them which
oould not be bridged.
She turned out the light and.
.lrawing the blind up. knelt down
at the open window in the dark- |
There was still a light in the !
drawing room below, still the
sound of Voices, and presently
Tommy came down the steps from
the French window and limped
away across the lawn.
He was a queer boy?sometimes,
as Anne knew, he spent half the
night wandering round the countryside.
or down at Lx>ng End Cottage
with Fernie. He never did
things in a rational way like other
People, and she wondered if per- i
haps she had been a little hard on
him. if her own unhappincss had j
caused her to be unjust.
Then Mr. Harding came to the I
window, and for a moment stood:
in the shaft of yellow light, yawning
and stretching his arms.
"Well, I'm off to bed. I'll leave '
you to lo<^| up, John."
Anne strained her ears for the J
Fortune Hunter's voice, but no re- j
nly was audible, and presently all j
>va? silent below.
Dared she go down to him? As i
she knelt there, trembling, in the j
larkness. the silence of the night
was broken by the muffled sound ;
of the piano in the r6om below, as j
if someone was playing with the
soft pedal down; but It was suffl- j
gently !oTW for Anne to hear the i

the dark landing.
She could see the Fortune Hunter
fitting sideways on the piano stool,
the open song on the rack, his hands
hanging dejectedly between his
knees, and lines of such utter misery
n his face that she hesitated no
'onger: she ran across to him and
'ell on her knees beside him.
"John?John!" She spoke his
name In a little sobbing whisper,
and with a stifled cry his arms
closed around her.

no attempt to kiss her; he just

WHAT I WOCLD TEACH MY
Written especially for the Boys'
Captain and Halfback, University
of Chicago, 1S15.
If I had a son who wag naturally
adapted to backfleld play
in football I would teach him
to do three things, namely: Run,
kick and pass.
A man who can do thjs in
football is dangerous. He can
at all times keep an opposing
team guessing what his next
move will be.
Suppose it is the third down
with four yards to go. The team
takes punt formation with the
dangerous man. who can run.
kick or pass, in position to receive
the Mil. From his position
he can survey not only his
teammates, but the line-up of
the opposing team. Then he can
make his choice of play.
If the ends of the other teams
are playing close to the tackles
he knows he can carry the ball
and probably get around them.
If the ends are playing wide, he
knows the thing to do is make a
short pass, and he can do it.
But if it is a close game in the
middle of the field he can do
either of these two things, or
he can play his other card?always
the surest one?a long
No one can tell which he will
do. The other team is at wit's
end trying to figure out just
what his play will be. He Is
surely the most dangerous type
of player. And that's the -way
I'd want them to think of my
Boys who are learning cartoon
drawing will be taught the art
by expert teachers in a series of
articles which begin Sunday.
The cartoonists will have an opportunity
to get some real instructions
that will not cost
them a cent, and illustrations
will be given with every article.
If you like to draw cartoons you
should read them.

No, you do not reply to the happy "Good Morning" salutatioi
by talking about the yesterdays or the tomorrows.
That is, you do not do this if you are healthy.
Of course, if you are bilious, or have a severe headache, o
had a wakeful night, you may moan about the yesterdays am
fear the tomorrows.
But if you are well and hear the "Good Morning," you wi]
say "Good Morning" and talk awhile, and then, on leaving th
friend who gave you the cheery greeting, you will say:
Isn't that fine.
"Good day to you."
That means a wish that TODAY someone wishes that it ma;
be your GOOD DAY.
Your TODAY is all you have of life.
You only live TODAY.
NOW is the only time you own.
Time remains still.
Time is yours to take and use.
But you cannot hold time.
It is like vapor, which you can feel and breathe and knov
surrounds you, but you cannot hold it.
TODAY is the most wonderful day in your whole life.
Like the sculptor who carves out of marble the beautifu
image which his brain conceived, so you carve out of the marbli
of TODAY what you think.
NOW. is the chisel which you use in carving your LIFE fron
Glorious TODAY I
No matter what you possess in purse or lands, if you usi
TODAY NOW as you expect to use TODAY which you fool
ishly think will wait for you.
No 'matter what you possess in purse or land, in hopes 01
plans, if you use TODAY as best you can, you are making richei
and making life, which ends in success. Some
folks plan TODAY, very wonderful plans which the;
expect to accomplish "some other day." They forget that thii
some other day is but Tomorrow, which never arrives.
TODAY?those who live and DO IT NOW are always young
No one is old TODAY.
No one is idle TODAY.
Webster's Dictionary contains this definition:
OPTIMIST?One who always hopes for the best.
I give this definition:
OPTIMIST?One who owns TODAY.
