The next morning June started out
for her shopping. When she returned
she expected to find that something
had happened, but not even a' tele
gram greeted her. She wondered
what they were doing and thinking
at home. Well, there was nothing to
do but wait. She sat alone in her
room the entire evening and nothing
happened. The next morning as she
was starting out for more shopping
she found herself' confronted by the
proprietor. Very apologetically he
explained that he had orders from
police headquarters to detain her.
June-after some show of indignation,
went meekly back to her room. In
about an hour there was a knock at
her door. Was it a horrid policeman
or the .irate and injured Airs. Hunt?
June nerved herself to open the door.
Billy, wild-eyed and out of breath,
"Where is that scoundrel?" he
yelled. "Are you married?"
"No," answered June. . "And he
isn't a scoundrel."
Then Billy told how he had found
Mrs. Cliffe's note, how a. good deal
had jdawned upon him, how they had
never even thought of being, engaged
and how furious and miserably
heart-broken he had been.
"Then," he added, "I know it
took an awful big jolt to find out
hut I knew I'd got to get you back, 'or
"Or make me one of the family?"
Billy took her very closely in his
arms and explained later.
