After spondlng ft day with ft win
eomo womnn rending Lucille. It Is
cither the hand of Fato or the inten
tional prank of n witch that sends tho
Bamo mnn canoeing with a decidedly
pretty girl of tho same name!
Luclllo Walters was a loader nt
Vassar and popular at Squirrel Inn,
vrhoro her personality was predomi
nant and pleasing. To nono hut Jncklo
Vlnlng need eIic leld tho palm of
favor and of attractiveness.
Upon Mayor Iledlght Miss Walters
tried all her wllrs. In a sworn com
pact with tho "Judgo" sho sought by
every means In conformity with lady
light alluring to wrlng'from him soino
llttlo slip that would throw light upon
his clandestine meotlngs but He
dlght baffled her at every clever
thrust. She came homo at night only
to admit her defeat.
"Ho Is charming and decidedly
adept at fencing," was tho verdict
JIIss Walters rendered to her
And on tho plnnaclo of this It hap
pened! Jackie Vlnlng and Luclllo Walters,
star gazing, beheld tho rascally Bo
dlght enter tho arbor. A half hour
Jater tho flguro of a woman emerged
from tho trystlng place. For a time
tho two stood In tho arbor entrance.
Tho arm of tho mayor was about her.
Then their lips met in a lingering
caress and the girl glided across tho
lawn as on that other night when
Jackie had beheld a like tableau.
Undoubtedly tho woman was ono of
them but which ono?
Miss Vinlng's anger and contempt
for men in general and Ocdlght in
particular ran high.
"Hut," protested Miss Walters, "per
haps his Intentions aro perfectly hoD.
orablo and possibly right here under
our noses a romance has budded and
"But but " protested the Honor
ablo Jack, stopping herself Ju3t at the
point of confessing what Bedlght had
said to her that night on the dock,
"I ho said the girl was doing no
harm and "
-"Don't bo silly, Jackie," pricked
Miss Walters, "it Isn't wrong to kiss
But Jackie was unappeased. She
felt that Bedight was a deceiver, for
try as sho would, she could not justi
fy his words to her with his act at
tho arbor. Tho danger to tho girls
under her protection was Imminent.
The whole affair had been a travesty
nt best, and she was unwise to continue
It longer. But what method of pro
ceduro was best? J.icldo tlwiiElit serl
ously for an hour. Then sho sum
moned an attendant from the offlce
and gavo him a message. Having done
this she retired.
Mayor Bedlght was still up at mid
night when a woman glided down tho
hallway and tapped gently at his
door. It was opened from within
and the girl closed it behind her.
"Walter!" sho cried, excitedly,
"Jacklo Vlnlng has sent help to tho
sheriff. I just learned it. It's almost
time for him to arrive. You must
act quickly. Tho letter with tho bill
inside is still unsealed on her dresser.
I tried to get It but failed. You
"All right, Bess," replied tho mayor,
patting tho girl on tho shoulder. "I
act and I want to say right hero tlu
you'ro a trump card. It's up to your
Undo Dudley to buy you a new seal
skin when wo meet In Chicago."
Tho mayor was moving lively,
throning his few effects Into a suit
case "I'm ready, Boss," ho said hurriedly.
"Whllo I'm trying to turn this trick,
you slip out and see It Uriggs la
waiting, It'o an hour too soon, but ho
may ho there. Good-by, llttlo girl,
Mum's tho word," giving her a loving
u or uikon -wijuli.ims
Tho mayor R-ped down the hull to
Jacklo Vinlng's room.
"Gad," ho ejaculated, "this la a mm
thing I've got to do but everything Is
fair In lovo and politics arid this Is
Taking a key Ironi his pocket, Be
dlght slipped It softly into tho door.
Tho lock yielded. Cautiously ho
opened tho door And entered the apai t.
ment of the "Judge." A high-low in
candescent was burning with tho dim
light on, and In the glow Bcdlght'a
ejes surveyed tho apartment carefully.
As his eyes swept tho room, ho sought
to locato two objects of Intenso Inter
est tho dresser, on top of which was
supposed to Ho the letter containing
tho hill, and Jacklo Vlnlng! They
wcro both In evidence, tho one In the
farther corner of tho room, tho other
In her bed asleep, her round arms
thrown upward about her face, her
beautiful hair In a braid that fe'l
ncross tho white linen like a rope of
gold. Besldo tho bed on a chair lay
a pile of filmy lingerie, and on top of
tho heap a pair of black silk hose.
Bedlght, fascinated, turned his face
away. Even a political career would
scarco excuso a man for such an In
trusion. "But sho will never know," flashed
through Bcdlghfs mind as ho slipped
quietly ncross tho room to tho dresser.
Yes, tho packngo was there and un
sealed. Hastily slipping the envelope
off, ho tucked tho bill away In hlj
pocket. From a second pocket ha
brought out another manuscript anJ
substituted this for the one he had
lost on tho mornlns of the run through
tho swamp. He did not read the let-'
tor, returning it with the manuscript
to tho envelope. Wetting tho muci
lage, he closed and sealed tho letter
and laid it back on tho dresser. Turn
Ing to go, his eyes fell upon tho face
of tho sleeper. How beautiful sho was
and how unreasonable. For the,
merest second ho hesitated opposite
tho lacy couch of my lady's dreams
but tho moment was fatal.
By some strange freak of fate tho
high-low light, feeling an Impulse of
fresh current, automatically shifted
from low to high. Tho brilliant glare
fell directly In the girl's face. Sho
stirred, opened her eyes and would
have screamed but for Bedlght's pres
ence of mind. Springing forward, he
spoke her name, muffling her startled
ejaculation with his hand, gently laid
across her lips.
And then as her eyes blazed like
torches with their outraged fires, he
dropped to his knees besjdo the bed
and eald hotly:
"You will never forgive mo for this
and I do not blamo you. But somo
day you will understand. I have done
nothing at Squirrel Inn to make a
gentleman blush for shame except
this and I had to do It. I thought I
could could say good-by without
awakening you. I am going now.
When first we met, you gave mo a
kiss or If you plca-e, I stole it. In
going I am giving in return my heart,
and taking as the sweetest memory
of my life this last good-by!"
Bowing his head over tho face of
the half stupefied girl, ho touched his
lips to hers reverently and slipped
from tho room.
As he did so a piercing shriek arosp.
The "Judgo" was coming to her own.
It was answered from below. '
Bedlght, scudding along the hall,
heard tho answering cry and knew
the sheriff had arrived. Exit from
the hotel by way of the staircase was
out of the ouestlon He darted to
Bess Winter's room, tried tho door ana
breathed a sigh of relief as It yielded
From tho room a veranda opened and
from the floor of the veranda to the
ground was not too much of a drop for
an agile man. Bedlght hung for a mo
ment on tho rati. Then he let go,
landing almost in the arms of an of
ficer, evidently more surprised than
tho mayor, who, quicker of action,
pushed tho deputy headlong and fled
from tho Kcpne with sueed that would

nausea, impure blood, and

Down tho gravel walk sped Bedlght,
toward tho main road. Already the
officer had regained his feet and given
tho alarm. Tho mayor heard a call
for help, a hurried expfanatlon, and
then footfalls in pursuit. Down the
lad he ran toward tho shadows of
.0 trees along tho highway.
If Brlggs was there and ready, ho
would get away In time. Something
loomed black in the shadows ahead.
It was tho car! Bedlght called as
he ran but Brlggs was too surprised
"Crank tho car!" cried the mayor
excitedly, dashing up to tho machine.
But tho pursuers wero upon them
as tho bewildered Brlggs sprang to
tho wheel. Tho mayor turned and
struck blindly at tho sheriff In the
lead, whirled and sprang into the ma
chine. The motor aroused instantly
and shot ahead, leaving tho enraged
pursuers powerless in the road.
It was 10 o'clock on tho evening of
the election in Osslan. About the
headquarters of Walter Bedlght tho
followers of the victorious representa
tive wero clamoring for their chosen
leader and among tho voters wero
innumerable women who had fought
shoulder to shoulder with their
brothers at the ballot box.
Mrs. Holcomb, tho president of the
Allied Women's clubs, followed by a
bevy of workers, passed through the
crowd and sent In her card. Tho door
was ononed to admit them.
Bedlght Hung for a Moment on tho
Iledlght came graciously rorwara, a
smllo of welcome upon his face.
"Congratulations, Mr. Bedlght," said
Mrs. Holcomb, "and let me Introduce
MIbs Vlnlng, of Epworth."
Bedlght had not seen her until then,
hut as his eyes fell upon her his heart
leaped as the dry grasses to tho show
er, as tho laughing water to tho sun
shine. Ho held out his hand.
"Wo fiave met before, thank you,
Mrs. Holcomb," sho said, the roses
mounting to her cheeks, and then the
crowd surged In.
"Please don't go," ho whispered
eagerly to Jacklo as ho turned to
grasp tho outstretched hands.
And oven as ho murmured his
thanks to tho congratulatory constitu
ency, he pressed a button upon his
desk. An attendant answered. He
whispered a message, still pressing
tho hands that met his. The attend
ant slipped hurriedly away. In a mo

as Jackie's face grew scarlet,

An hour later Bedlght toro himself
away from his friends and found them
"Excuso pio a moment," said tho
ever tactful Bess, disappearing Into
the front office. "Somebody's got to

Bedlght stood facing the girl, who

PAPER BAG. LUNCHEON.
By Martha McCullsch Williams.
The luncheon was its own reason
for belng-ra paper bag function pure
and simple. This, however, is not
saying, that It would not answer for
bridge; indeed, for any mild feminlno
festivity. This festivity was not
strictly feminlno. Like tho moon, It
had a man In It a man who has
eaten in tho most famous places all
round tho world. Prftlso from him,
therefore, was "Approbation from
Sir Hubert Stanley." I meant the
paper bag stuff to havo it because
I know that it deserved It. ,
Canteloupo a la Frlvolo
Broiled Squab with Bacon
Corn Pudding Sweet Potatoes In
Stuffed Green Poppers
Spiced Grapes Plum Jelly
Romalno and Tomatoes, French
Pimento Cheese Sandwiches
Cheesecake Patties Grapes Oranges
After breakfast I put my sweet po
tatoes on to boll, choosing them
smooth of even size nnd neither too
big nor too little. In thirty minutes
they were dono enough and, peeled
under cold water to save discolora
tion, they were out of hand even be
fore I was through making the sand
wiches. In the meantime tho squab livers
had been boiling tender in slightly
salted water, with Just a dash of to
basco in default of a small red pep
per pod. When they were tender,
they were mashed fine, with a lump
of butter and plenty of browned bread
crumbs mado ready the day before.
The mixing done, I cut out the cores
df my green peppers, poured boiling
salt water upon them, let it stand Just
half a minute, then dropped them in
cold water, took them out, drained
them, and stuffed them with liver
and crumbs, after which, they wero
sot to wait tho hour of cooking.
Scraping corn for the pudding I
found that half a dozen big ears yield
ed almost a pint of pulp. Then 1 beat
up three eggs very light, with a big
pinch 'of salt, a tablcspoonful of sugar
and plenty of red and black pepper.
Into the eggs went tho corn pulp,
after it half a cup of soft butter, last
of all a big cup of top-milk, more than
half cream. It would not hurt by
standing, bo It went on Ice like the
The cheesecakes had been baked
tho previous afternoon hence, there
remained only the salad, the squab
and the cantaloupe to make ready.
As soon as my bags were greased I
lighted the oven, and by the time I
had the corn pudding securely bagged
the sweet potatoes smeared with but
ter, rolled In sugar, and put In their
bag with more butter, sugar and lem
on Juice, the .oven was ready fcr
them. I gave them each a shelf, put
ting the potatoes on the lower one
being already nearly cooked they
would take only twelve minutes.
When they camo out the stuffed pep
pers, in a thickly-buttered bag, with
a lump of butter and a tablespoonful
of water added, took their place. I
turned on full heat for three iplnutes,
then slacked It as I had done at first.
Next I washed and wiped my squab
six beauties, fatter than butter
stuffed them lightly with soft bread
crumb, seasoned with salt, pepper, a
very llttlo chopped celery and shreds
of tart apple, wrapped them In thin
broad bacon slices, and put them in
their bag. Since they needed no water,
tho bag could stand a llttlo while un
harmed. I Improved the Idle minute
by slipping Into my company frock.
Safely buttoned up, I wen.t back to
work. The corn pudding was done
so wero the poppers they had been
In the oven about eighteen minutes.
All the bags wero set in pans down
under tho oven, protected from tho
name by tho broiler pan, Inverted.
The squab bag now wen on tho
upper oven shelf because I know they
were better if cooked quickly. I left
tho heat on full for ten minutes, then
slacked it a llttlo more than half. Ad
Interim, I had been preparing tho
canteloupo, taking out the seed, mak
ing tiny cuts In tho flesh nnd sprink
ling lightly with BUgar, then pouring
gently around tho Insldo of each a
spoonful of yellow chartreuse. An
experiment, this, but ono that I shall
repeat It evoked such enthusiasm.
People began coming beforo the last
melon was finished. They trouped in
to the kitchen, enlflJng cheerfully.
The dishes sat ready in a trice, I
had out tho bags of vegetables. Mur
murs of admiration groetod what each
of them revealed, and tho murmurs
swelled to a chorus triumphant when
at last the squabs lay plump, Juicy,
most delicately browned in their al
Luncheon speedily followed the us
ual course. We ate tho fat, drank tho
sweet, and found all things good.. This
I say, not vainglory, but in due meed
to paper bag cookery. The only man
said, looking up from his plate at
last, "I never really tasted squab be
fore." And when the luncheon was over
the washing up was greatly shortened
by the fact of no pass,
