The publlo wympathy. wo feel sure, will lie
given to Mr. Ionising In a very cousldcrnhlo de
gree because of the general conviction that In
tho clrciiiimtances of the cnM tho possible lr
regularity of the method chosen for bringing
about cabinet conferences might with great
propriety have been overlooked by tho presl

cause of tlio rupture, aro matters which mint

We had another trip and I' had

Peggy- and Holen bought their gifts
at different shopa, but I had to havo
everything charged, and Blmbel'a

I would haw lieon frightened to

not be rendered unlll February flrat.
Hy that tlmo pomolhlng wan suro
to happen so I' could pay them.
Yet when tho goods came and I
figured up w-hut 1 had spent, tt was
really more than I had plnnned It
would be. Isn't It always that way?
I know 'It wan with me. I "would
start out wltih tho bet Intentions in
tho world; would resolve to bo eco

spent moro than I should.
I had bought a reading lamp for
Tom, some silk stockings for Holen
Und Peggy, several things for the
baby, a loo-k for Walter, and some
gloves and .handkerchiefs for Norah.
Then I had remembered Tom's
mo-thcr, mv own father and mother,
two or three of tho elrlw who u I ways
sent inn something and to whom I
felt, I musv, send presenW bceauso
of that. It doesn't sound like much
of a llHt.ibut I counted up tho sales
sHpn and my bill had been Increased
by J30. 1 had wanted somo "other
things; but now I was thankful I
hnd not purchased them. .
Tom had sent up a tree, and he
anil Peggy and I wprn trimming It

strune somo lot tho popcorn, nnd
then mnde paper .cornucopias of

with tho corn and lhard candies.
When wo finished it was dinner
time. The tree looked lovely; and
while tired. I was glad I Had asKea
Walter and'Helon to come In after
jlltner. We would distribute the
presents anu inen pmy nriuge or
something to pass thn evening. I
tiad suggested a play", but Tom hud
said ho couldn t afford It.
I did not caro.very much about It
anyway. Wo wore to go on a real
party the next night. Dinner, out
in tho country dancing, and a good
time generally. Kvcrett Crandell

"You road aloud, auc," she wild
"You read ho wall."
It wns -ono thing I could do. 1
