8 Resolution? ??

?. 1822, by McClure Newapaper Syndicate.
Bob Judson went down to break?
fast New Year's morning with his
shirt cuffs dangling. Moreover he
had watched the old year out and
the new year in at his young sis
ter's pairey and liad promised to go
skating with the "crowd" by 9 in
the morning. This meant an 8
o'clock breakfast. He was not in a
cheerful frame of mind.
"What in Blunder do you mean
by swiping my cuff buttons, Peggy?"
he said to his sister, who was already
at the table paring an apple with
amiable precision. "Look." He held up
dangling shirt cuffs.
"Only this," cooed Peggy, who was
eighteen and uncommonly pretty. She
held up her hands, showing the cuffs
of a blouse of masculine cut. "I
needed them, dearie, so before you were
awake I came in and got them. Don't
xbe huffy, sweetheart, lt's New Year's
"Well, you needn't be so absurd
ly good-natured," growled Bob. "You're
not usually so pie sweet this time In
the morning." ,
"No, dearest!" said Peggy. "But
It's New Year's day and I've made
some resolutions. One's to be very
good-natured. And I'm beginning
on you. I have made out some for
you, too," she added drawing a very
small piece of paper from the strap
of her wrist watch. "I knew you
wouldn't make any for yourself.
Tom read In very small, /rather
childish writing, these resolutions
thought by his lltle sister to cover
his besetting sins:
Not to flirt.
Not to be scrappy-'That's because
you punched Peter when you caught
him kissing me," explained Peggy.
Not to be late for dinner-"It an
noys cook so."
Not to be hoggish-This had spe
cial reference to neckties, fountain
pens, cuff buttons, etc.
Not to get engaged before 1024.
"Because unattached men are scarce
and we need you in the bunch to
piece out with when the regular men
"And I'm not a regular man?" said
"Oh, Bobby," cooed Peggy, "I didn't
mean lt that way. I meant when the
boys In the crowd weren't here. Of
course the girls like you but you're
ao old." Bob was all of twenty-five.
"Bobby dear," resumed Peggy. "I've
asked some of the. girls to come in
this evening to practice a new dance
step. We're a man short. That ls,
we are a girl extra. Sally's bringing
her cousin. You'll come, wont you?"
Bob looked over the Hst of reso
lutions Peggy had made out fer him
several' times while he ate, and be
fore he left the house that morning
he had promised Peggy to keep them,
that ls, if he could.
Bob's social engagements in his own
and his sister's set kept him until
darkness had begun to settle. But,
as he reflected, It was only half past
5, and with half an hour to get home
and dinner at half past 6, he would
be In good time for dinner. He could
Boast to Peggy that he had kept all
his resolutions ot least for the day.
He was aware of the fact that
QUESTION CLEARED UP
Walhalla Readers Can Ne Longer

Again and again we have read of
strangers in distant towns who have
been cured by this' or that modlclne.
But Walhnlla's pertinent question
has always boon "Has anyone here In
Walhalla been cured?" The word of
a stranger living a hundred miles
away may bo true, but lt cannot have
tho same weight v/lth us as tho word
of our own citizens, whom wo know
and respect, and whose evidence we
oan so onsily prove.

backache and other symptoms of kid

there was a young woman walking
hurriedly beside a man, on the op
posite side of the street, but he did not
give the matter much notice ' even
when they stopped in an apparent
argument. Then he saw the young
woman quickly cross the street She
waved her hand and fairly ..pounced
upon him with a, "Why Marmaduke,
dear, how glad I am to see' youl"
It seemed to Tom as if in all his
life he had never seen any girl look
so entirely charmed to clap eyes on
bim, yet he was sure from the first
that he did not know the young
woman. She was shaking hands with
him and looking archly, almost ar
dently, it seemed to Tom, from eyes
very deep and tender. It was too
dark to see Just what color they were.
He didn't know her, and Tom felt thnt
she knew be did not; still if she
wanted to pretend that she did, what
Tom remembered the ??*f?t resolu
tion given by Peggy, "Not to hlrt."
There would have been satisfaction In
keeping them all, but still greater
satisfaction in becoming acquainted
without an introduction with a girl
of such apparent charm.
"I thought lt was you. Marmaduke,"
she said walking beside him and laugh
ing guyly. "Of course, you were on
your way to our house. We half sx
pected you but I didn't know you
would come this way." It seemed
to Tom that the girl was talking
very loudly. "Father and brother are
at the house on account of the holi
day. They will be se glad to see
you, Marmaduke-" And then in an
aside she said,' "Marmaduke Butler's
She had heard steps behind them
and then 'J Tom realized that the man
who had been talking to the girl oh
the opposite side of the 'street had
crossed and had caught up with them.
"Say, who are you?" said the young
man, well dressed but with hts hat
drawn far down Over his' eyes.
"Why, .I'm Marmaduke Butler-1
think." stammered Tom.
"Well, you can stop 'annoying this
lady," ?sid the stranger. "She's a
friend of mine ano I won't stand
for any strangers talking to her."
The man pushed his way, trying to
walk between the girl and Tom. "You
never saw her before In your life,
did you? You don't know ber name,
The girl - had crossed in front of
Tom and was hanging on hla arm.
"Tell him you are an old frleqd,"
she was saying.
"I'm an old friend," said Tom with
"I don't believe lt," snarled the
stranger. "We don't neither of us
know her woll. And I came along
Tom did not wait to know what
was coming next. He shook off the
girl's hold, his fists clenched and
his muscles tightened without voli
tion. The next minute he had struck
out toward the annoying stranger, and
with the third blow the stranger was
prone on the path. Then he and the
girl walked quickly on. They walked a
block in silence. Then the man picked
himself up, brushed off his coat and
followed, apparently not much the
worse for wear.
"Take me home,". whispered the
girl, hoarsely. "It's 20 Bedford street.
Can you find lt?" Tom knew the
way perfectly, though the house In
question lay a half hour beyond, with
no chance of trolley or bu? te convey
them thither. The man was following
them. Just what part he was play?
lng In the little triangle Tom didn't
know. But he und thu girl went on,
walking all tho tithe faster to keep
abend of the undesirable one. who was
following them swiftly In the gloam
He stood with ber on the porch
of .the house marked 20 until n ser
vant came to the door. "May I see
you again?" He was reluctant to
let the door separate them.
"Oh, no," said the girl. , "It would
seem as If 1 bad been very Im
pertinent If we ever met again. I
could never consent to know a man
whom I had mot that way. But I
shall always be so gruteful." Then
the door closed and Tom In much con
fusion traced his steps homeward. It
was a quarter of Beven when foe
"Tom, you have broken ono of your
resolutions the first thing," chirped
Peggy, when they met at dinner.
"I've broken more than one," said
Tom dismally. "I've flirted with a
Kiri, knocked a man over. I've felt as
If I wanted something all to myself,
and If I get half a chance I'll be en
jaged before 1924. Soy, Peggy, Sally
lives somewhere In Bedford street,
"Twenty-six," said Peggy. "And I
shouldn't wonder if you'd better re
member that, because you'll huve to
see Sally's cousin home. You see,
she's the extra girl tonight. And
Bally and Burton James are BO struck
with" each other that they won't weat
that; cousin butting in-you won't
mind, will you?"
Then the t?l?phone bell rang attd
Peggy was absorbed for many min
ut?e. She burst In upon Tom tn the
dining room, where' ho was finish*
lng dinner alone. "Tom, hurry! I
am afraid you'll have to go, get Sally
and her cousin. Burton James was
going to meet them here and they were
coming alone, but the cousin-Madge
ls her name*-had the most awful ex
perience, perfectly awful. First a
man sitting beside her In the street
car said he remembered her, that he
had met her at a dance, was an old
friend of her brother's. Madge never
suspected that he was just picking
her up. When she found out she got
off the car and he followed lier. They
walked along and then ho took her
arm. wanted to make a date with her
and everything. Madge didn't know
what to do, it was so dark and lonely.
But she. says the nicest man came
along and saw her difficulty ' and
knocked the man down and took her
home, then left without letting her
know who he was. Wasn't that
splendid? Now the girls are afraid to
come alone for fear that other man
will meet them."
Of course Tom hastened to 26 Bed
ford street, and of course the affair
ripened Into a romance, amt long be
fore the year was out announcements
were made of the engagement of
Madge and Tom. Peggy didn't find
lt bard to forgive Tom for breaking
his New Year's resolutions, but she
always Insisted that lt would have
been so much more romantic if Madge
had married the hero wbe iuaocsnd
