I am a Candidate for the Prudential Hundred Thousand League this Year
Help me to the goal, that I may win one of the best Life Insurance trips. I have a good start so far of the one hundred thousand.
As we have something better than others, and something better than usual, I feel warranted in a good sum advertising expense to inform the people.
To give you an idea of the dependable soundness of the PRUDENTIAL'S Policy and its popularity, the Company issued'and revived more Life Insurance
in one year (1916) last year, than any other of the more than 260 companies operating in the U. S. had in force from its entire record of existence, excepting eight ac
cording to the Blue Book published by the Spectator Company in 1916. " 0 '
The Prudential Issued and Revived in 1916 $591,000,000 Life Insurance
THE REASON: The PRUDENTIAL has the STRENGTH of GIBRALTAR. It has the lowest rates with annual
dividends, further reducing the premiums. The policy is plain with no catches. The policy pro
vides without cost, that if the holder becomes physically disabled, he is excused from paying the
premiums, and this without effecting the policy.
You can surrender a 20-pay life policy with annual dividend
off at the end of 20 years to the Company for more cash than
you have paid the Company. Drop me a card and I will see you.

I HATS AND FACES I
By EARL REED SILVERS. !???
Estelle Williams played with an
Ivory paperweight on the mahogany
desk of the writing room.
"Harold Smythe is coming to spend
the week-end in Glenwood," she in
formed Dorothy Hunt. "We're going
to give a big dance on Saturday eve
Dorothy showed little interest in
the person of Harold Smythe. She
had heard so much about him since
ier or iurs. williams.
It had been hard for her. Of the
same age as Estelle, she was as differ
ent from her cousin as black is from
white. In the first place, she had big,
blue eyes, which gave a hint of pathos,
and which made the men who looked
at them want to protect her from
some harm which they felt was im
pending. She had skin like the soft
est velvet, and cheeks the color of a
Estelle's eyes were colorless, al
though she considered them hazel. Her
skin, in spite of frequent applications
of the latest modern appliances, re
fused to be anything but rough. But
her father was a millionaire, and her
mother had social aspirations.
They had met Harold Smythe at
Miami, and Harold had casually men
tioned the fact that he intended to
come East in the summer. An invi
tation and acceptance had followed,
and the time had finally arrived for the
much-talked about visit.
On Friday morning Estelle, walting
for the big touring car to carry her to
the station to meet the guest,
found Dorothy sitting on the front
"Do you wish to ride to town?" she
"Yes, I would like to go." Dorothy
arose and took the front seat of the
car, while Estelle sat in state in the
tonneau. The former wore a sunbon
net of light straw, which had cost 75
cents in the village store; the latter
was decked in a silver creation which
was purchased in New York for $.r>0.
They reached the station just as the
train was pulling out. Estelle leaped
from the car and greeted a good-look
ing, well-set-up younsr man who was
standing on tho platform. She did
not bother to introduce Dorothy, nnd
the auto started off for the ride to
the Williams mansion. The girl in
the front seat could hear them chat
ting noisily. She liked Harold's
When they had reached the honse
and alighted from the. car, however.
Estelle paused a moment to introduce
the other girl.
"My cousin. Miss Hunt," she said
The visitor took Dorothy's bund und
gazed into her blue eyes. Then he for
got all about his hostess and every
thing connected with her.
"I-I didn't know Estelle had a
cousin," he gasped: "Will you be here
for the week-end?"
"Yes." The one addressed smiled nt
his evident confusion.
Harold turned to Estelle, who was
watching with anxious eyes.
"I think that I shall have a wonder
ful, time.", jje gpnotmced.. "Tliingsjire
just~fine h?re."" His" eyes returned to
Mrs. Williams came forth and met
Harold. When the guest had been
shown his room, Estelle called her
mother to one side and talked earnest
ly In guarded tones. Dorothy saw Mrs.
Williams nod her head decisively, and
then Harold appeared again.
"If you would like to see the place,"
Estelle suggested, "I will show you
"That will be fine." He turned to
Dorothy. "You're coming, too, aren't
you?" he asked.
"I-I'm afraid she'll be busy," Es
telle interposed. "She's sort of a
housekeeper here," she added cruelly.
Dorothy's eyes flashed angrily.
"I haven't anything to do." sh?
tlon. When she told him of the depth
of the shaded lake, he looked into the
depths of Dorothy's eyes. So as soon
as they returned to the house Estelle
held a brief consultation with her
mother, and at luncheon Mrs. Wil
liams made an announcement.
"The painters are fixing the cottage
nt Avon." she t>aid to Dorothy, "nnd I
believe that we ought to have someone
there to look over the work. So you
will go to the shore this afternoon and
stay until Monday."
Dorothy nodded; she saw" Instantly
the plan to get rid of her, but she
was helpless. So at two o'clock she
started for the shore. '
Just one hour later Hnrold tele
phoned to New York, leaving the phone
with a most dejected look.
.Tm very sorry," he said, "but It
will be absolutely necessary for me to
go to New York this afternoon."
They protested, but all In vain; and
the big touring car arrived at the
station in time for the four o'clock
train. While Estelle waited outside,
Harold walked to the ticket office.
"Give me a single trip ticket to
Avon," lie said.
