I must have gone several miles,
when I drew behind a bush near the
shelving shore of the stream to avoid
meeting a man "progressing slowly
with the aid of a cane. I was in no
mood for companionship. I moved
too far, my foot slipped, I went head
long, and was conscious of my head
striking the water and a rock at the
same time. Then I was insensible.
My blood curdled as I regained
consciousness, for I recognized that
the man bending over me had drag
ged me to safety, and that man, in
form and substance, Vance Telford!
Within an hour I knew all the story
of his rescue down the stream, his
convalescence, his hegira now to the
Evans home. And then I learned
that it was the sad-hearted Miss
Dawes who loved him, and that Hul
dah had arranged for their clandes
tine marriage because her cousin
could not live without him. Her
family did not like Telford, nor did
Huldah, but it was arranged that Tel

ANOTHER WHACK AT HIGH COST
By Caroline Coe.
Perhaps you were planning to buy
new rugs this fall, or to re-carpet the
floors and perhaps, you have
changed your mind about it and de
cided that the old rugs and carpets
will do until the cost of living isn't
quite so high.
But this won't be so bad after all
if you invest in a little dye, which
fortunately is not expensive, and
brighten up the faded floor coverings.
To do this successfully you must first
scrub the rug and then rinse it. Mix
the dye and keep it well stirred in the
vessel, so that the color will be even.
When the rug is still wet, apply the
dye with a clean whitewash brush.
It colors evenly this way. If the rug
is dyed on the floor, place a great
many newspapers under it to absorb
the moisture. It should be thrown
double over a line to dry, or else al
lowed to dry op the floor. It will

dirty white use such colors as dark
green, mahogany, red and delft blue.
Jute rugs may be dyed in a similar

water and allow it to soak for sev
