' ready to do, and It hardly occurred
to hrxn that If his love was dead It
did not follow that hers was so,

i since her Illness this power had

"I told 'em how hardly you had been

said Guy. "and that I could vouch for

money which was bound to come In. I
faked up all sorts of stories."

"Ton would like to go to the

"I don't think so." she replied.
"There are a few things I should

The next day. accordingly, they
made their way through a driving
snowstorm to Lillian's former lodg
ings. The streets were desolato and
the weather so bad that the sale
of Lillian's effects caused very lit
tle apparent notice. There was the
smallest of gatherings in the dining
room where the auctioneer had set
tip his rostrum; a dozen or so deal
ers In second-hand goods eat around
the table. There was a slight stir
of excitement when Guy and Lillian
entered the room. The auctioneer
ho was a dark, saturnine-looking
man paused in the midst of a face
tious speech, and a disreputably
shabby woman, who was critically
. examining a table cloth which had
Just been passed round, nudged her
neighbor, and remarked in an au
dible voice that "that was Mrs. Wil
loughby who had just come in the
lady what every one thought had
been murdered and the gent with
her was the husband what really
wasnt her husband." A snigger
went round the room, which caused
Guy to frown and mutter to himself,
but Lillian paid no heed.
"Want to buy anything. sir?" A
dealer thrust a dirty catalogue In
Guy's hand. "There's a nice thing
in docks. That's it over there on

said Guy He turned to Lillian, who
was carefully examining a cata

he whispered, "and Til do my best."

muttered the disappointed broker.
There's an old chap sitting under
the auctioneer's table who buys In

Guy glanced at the -old chap" In

er and not acting on his own account-
Guy wondered idly who
could have employed him.
Presently one of the picture
which Lillian wanted to save was
put up. It was a very,dalnty water
color sketch of a tropical landscape.
The auctioneer described It as a
work of art by an unknown hand,
and suggested that It might be more
valuable than It appeared.

whispered Lillian. "My mother

ATTRACTIVE MADE-OVER FROCKS
By Rita Stuyvesant.
THESE warm days bring out cool
frocks, and especially for the
children. When mother takes
out last Summer's ginghams and
chambrays she often find that they
are much t6o sma'i for her growing
daughter. Since the Government is
asking us to conserve everything,
even material, the, thrifty mother
will begin now to make over the
children's school frocks rather than
buy new ones.
There are so many simple styles
for Juveniles this season that "made
over" frocks are often more attrac
tive than new ones. Eton styes
are popular this year and furnish
an excellent way to remodel drese.
