with the procession' he laughed.
1 Dorothy did not go to sleep very
early that night She begat to think
she had noticed of late some" change
in bis letters. But, no, she would not
believe anything wrong of him but
the pillow was wet with tears.
The next letter from Field was
rather brief and evidently hurried.
Then came a lapse of two weeks, in
which she heard nothing. It seemed
to her now she must acknowledge the
bitter truth. Her pride asserted it
self and she determined not to ask
for any explanation. At last a type
written letter came telling of having
been very busy and promising soon
to write again. He had never be
fore sent her a typed letter. She even
had doubts of it having come from
him. It remained unanswered.
Meanwhile Pearson had made it
quite clear to Mrs. Hill that he
wished to become her son-in-law.
The lady was highly in favor of the
alliance, but Dorothy heartbrokenly
"refused, to consider marriage with
any one just then. v
All the zest and joy of v living
seemed to have gone out of life. She
began to wonder if she ought to
make the sacrifice her mother asked.
Suddenly she heard a voice that
made her heart stand still, and Field
stood before her.
"Are you going to marry Pear
son?" he asked.
"Have you any right to inquire?"
Then he told her how, when he
was showing the town to three cou
sins from Omaha, Pearson had come
up and told him in the course of the
talk, that he was engaged to her. He
had been terribly ill, but meant as
soon as he could to come and see for

with the sudden change in sons-in-law.

FOODS FACTS ABOUT NUTS
By Biddy Bye
The use of nuts, both home grown
and imported, has increased annual
ly in the United States. This is not
because the vegetarians and fruitar
ians rely on nuts to provide them
with protein, but because the price of
food has been advancing the world
around, making it necessary for the
inhabitants of every country to take
advantage of every possible source
of .supply. Probably the value of the
world's nut crop in relation to the
cost of living has never been so im
portant as this year.
Nuts do not make inexpensive
foods, but it is interesting to note
that 10 cents, if spent for peanuts,
will purchase more than twice the
protein and six times the energy that
could be bought for the same ex
penditure for porterhouse steak.
On the whole, the peanut supplies
protein, the.great energy maker, very
cheaply. The chestnut provides
starchy food and the pecan is the
richest of all nuts in oil.
Persbns who haVeihe habit of eat
ing nuts between meals or after a
heavy dinner must usually pay in
considerable discomfort for over
feeding. Qonsequehtly, there is a
popular notion that nuts are indi
gestible. But experiments have
proved that the human system can
assimilate the nutrition contained in
nuts without difficulty, if they are
used as staple foods and not as condi
ments and accessories.
It has never been proved that salt
makes nuts digestible, although it
does improve their flavor. Too much
stress cannot be laid on the neces
sity" for chewing raw nuts carefully.
