"Old Michael had been working
late that evening, because it was mid
June and the light was strong. He
came back about elghtp'clock. I was
passing his house when I saw a wo
man coming along the road. It was
her! I knew her in a minute. So did
Old Michael. I was curious then, I
"She came along and stood there,
staring at him, and he stared back,
but there wasn't anything but hate in
his look. Then, all at once I don't
know how it happened, but I heard a
sort of sob I don't know which one
sobbed and they were holding each
other tight and crying and kissing.
And Old Michael didn't look old any
more, nor doesn't now. And they
live here now. I work for 'em. Rich

"TOMMY TINKER" SUIT BRINGS
COMFORT TO TINY TOTS
The "Tommy Tinker" suit for tiny
boys is of white linen with lark blue
cords each side of the bias bands.
The distinctive cut of this suit is
in the wide trousers, which are sup
posed to be nearly twice as large as
the small legs they encircle.
Beets can be baked for table just
as potatoes are, and they are de
licious. Plunge tomatoes in very hot water,
then into cold. The skin will come
off easily, and they will remain firm.
Try rubbing the silver every day
with a dry flannel rag; it will not
have to be cleaned with silver polish
nearly so often.
