She descended the stone steps lead ing from the house in which she had a miniature homo. Delphine firew ater wroked on u morning newspaper, and her work kept tiwi* away from homo until hil. Tonight sho had ab seut-nilndtdly left her key iuslde the apartment, and did not realize that Khe had done lt UUtll HOW. At duylight sho could get a lock ?lilith to o;ien the door for her, but It was nearly six hours until abe could expect to approach such a con venience. Tho spring night air was chilly and Delphine did not entertain with much joy thu prospect of walk ing about the streets all night. "If I had a laprobo I could make myself comfortable in a park, but I should freeze my?elf Into pneumonia without Liie," ahe considered as she uuused one of the neat but now lone ly B(|uares of tho neighborhood. Whenever eho saw anyone approach lng e'e Immediately began to walk briskly as if with a purpose, and kept up this galt until the passerby was well out of earshot. At four o'clock she felt as If she could walk no longer, and in spite of thc fear of cold she sat down on a bench In Franklin square. Not another BOUI was In sight. She al most wished it were one of the big New York parks, where she would nt least have tho society of other vagrants. "Va^rantB? I never expected to be a vagrant. Why-I might even be arrested. Then I'd lose my precious position and my career would be gone. Father would never let me go away from home again if he knew of this." In tho midst of those soliloquies, she saw an automobile dash around the.corner of the square and atop be fore a house on the opposite side of the square and In which sho had al ready noticed many- lights. A young woman jumped out first and ran up tho steps to the house. Tho man stopped to throw a robe care fully over tho engine' of the car, and cs he paused under the now illumin ated archwuy of the door she saw that he carried a bag. "It must bo a doctor-and there ls illness," Delphine decided. She was nearly stiff with cold by now and began to walk again. She crossed the small square and passed the house In front of which the au tomobile stood. She stopped for a moment and looked Into the warm, cozy-looking car. "Why not?" she asked herself sud denly, stealing & quick glance at th? house. I would be gone by the time he veturned. I-I can't resist lt!" Bhe almost whispered, she was so cold and niserable. It v/as all she could do to keep from crying as she felt the soft comfort of tho leather cushion and tucked the rug about her. Every minute she told herself that she would get out and proceed on her lonely way, but every minute brought her further comfort and she could see no sign of anyone coming from within. At last Delphine slept; she slept In a strange automobile on a city street at 4:30 o'clock in the morning. She bad been too utterly weary to resiBt tho call of sleep. When Bhe awoke an hour and a half later it was to look into the anxious eyes of Dr. Baldwin Gray. Ho waa bending over her. She was not sure that he had not shaken her; she recalled having been dreaming that someone was trying to waken her. "Oh!" sho said, sitting erect She took In long drafts of fresh morning air and rubbed her eyes. "You-olept." said the man. Delphine nodded. Then she looked closely? at him. "Why-lt's Doctor Gray," Bho cried. "How-how strange!" "Remember you have the advantage over me in that you know my name. You did not give me your name the first and only time I saw you-when you came to my office to have a fin ter treated." . "I'm Delphine Brewster," explained tho girl. "And I'll be getting eut Wnsn't someone with you when yon drovo up?" she asked, looking about. "A nurse-she's f/:slde. A new baby happened to arrive while we were there, and the nurse baa remained to take caro of it." the doctor told Del phine. "What a night!" said Delphine half to herself. After that the doctor asked for ex planations and receive? them in foll wh'.lo he drove Delphin? to a lock smith and helped her Into her apart ment "Can I ever ' repay you. Docto/ Gray?" abe asked aa aha stood In the now open door. "You'll repay ma if you will let me know you,' Miss Brewster. I'll ask my mother to call on you cinco you are alone." the doctor said, seri ously. "And you'll come with her?" the girt asked naively. Doctor Gray laughingly nodded. "More often than you'll want mo to como-I'll come," But lt proved to be not too often to please Delphine.

Speed laws, cut-out laws, drive to the right laws, und several other law:; are to be enforced today. The police have warned autoists and oth ers of the violation of these ordi nances and the time limit of the warn ing ls now passed. Arrests will be made today of cases where the driv er was warned yesterday. At the last council meeting the police were instructed to enforce s?v irai ordinances rigidly and this is going to b edone. The cut-out can not be used on the city Btreets and the drive to the right laws uro to be enforced. These two ordinances .viii be brought to bear on the auto >wners of the city from this time on with a renewed vigor, and fines will take tlie place of the warnings which have heretofore been given. All dogs running a tlarge without muzzles will be shot. The owners o? these animals arc cautioned to keep ihe dogs in the yards or have them muzzled. The enforcement of this ordinance has grown out of the fact that several children have been bitten uy dogs within the past few weeks. 'Dog days" are coming and of course herc will be an occasional rabid dog. Muzzle all of them and avoid trouble. One other thing which the police are anxious to have done is the num bering of all cars in the city. There are a number of autos which have license tags which is badly broken, part of tlie lettering dropped oe. lome, have just a number scratched m a piece of card board. To have the number scratched With a pencil m a piece of cardboard ls as much a violation of the law as to have no lumber at all. The law requires a regulation slze tag and this ls the only thing which ls to be used. NAVIES REFEREE IN * BANKRUPTCY HERE VI?"? - Judge Johnson Appointa Curran E. Cooley to the Po sition. A referee lu bankruptcy has been appointed for Anderson county by Judge J. T. Johnson, recently ap pointed Federal district Judge. There is some difference of opinion between Judge Johnson and Smith in regard to this matter, as Judge Smith is of the opinion that a referee is not needed for Anderson county. Judge Johnson has appointed Mr. Jurran E. Cooley referee in Anderson :ounty and Mr. Hnrry Hughes, of Walhalla, referee for Oconee county. Mr. Samuel Wolfe was the referee for Anderson county bu upon becom ing a member of the legislature he resigned: All matters due to come before the referee Of Anderson coun ' ty have gone to Greenville county and this has been a great inconvenience to Andersonians.

(Copyright, 191G, by The McClure newspaper syndicate.) rance had seen her many times They lived in the same neighborhood and patronized the same bookstalls Ofen he bad let his eyes rest upor her as she stood looking over the cur rent magazines, and on one rare oe ca s ion be had followed her into tin elevated train and Journeyed aa far ar Thirty-fourth street. She had left th? train there, no doubt to shop. The re maiuder of the dally trip to Recto, street had seemed a sorry affair to Vance. Vance had long ago made certain that she was not a business girl in the Btrict sense of the word. Other wlBe he would bavo bad the Joy of riding ouch morning in the elevated with her. Vance would have seen to that he caught the well-timed train. For an habitually level-headed man Vance had doue a rather senseleap thing in falling in love with a girl whom he had not the power to be come acquainted with. At least that power had not made itself manifest nor had kindly fate come along tc help him in his love affair. Kindly fate did not enter the affair until Vance had beeu gazing In silent admiration for nearly three months at the girl's alluring beauty. One bright morning In early May Vance noticed that as the girl stood in the bookstall she had made the pur chase of a sign, on which was printed in bold letters "Room to Let." For the first time since catching Bight of her Vance followed her stealthily home. *J> When he had made sure of the number of the more or less shabby dwelling in which she lived. Vance went back to the elevated station and down to business. When he returned from the office and made his way to ward the address of the girl he saw the sign in tbe window of a room that seemed to be three flights up. He mounted the brown stone steps leading to the front door and was ad mitted by a slatternly woman. Vance hoped lt waa not the wonder-girl's parent. The woman vas neither polite nor gracious, but told him there was one rn the top floor. He could go up and ree lt if he wanted to. With that she shuffled off to the basement and left Vance to find his way up those three flights of stairs. Once there he succeeded in gaining his breath, then stood gazing at the closed doora of four rooms. After a second's thought he reasoned ouc the room that had the sign ia lt and knocked on tho door. He drew a sharp breath when the girl herself opened it. For a mcment Bhe, too, waa nervously silent. "This room," blurted Vance, sudden ly. Hs to let-isn't Itt** The girl found voice and command o the situation first and opened the door for him to enter. Vance did ao and aaw a cozy room that waa ap parently the den of a writer. "My landlady la moat disagreeable,'.' the girl told Vance, -and there was a sparkle of mirth in her eyes. "I have contracted for this room for a year and she refuses to let me go until September. If I can sublet lt-of course, she cannot object," Vance heaved a alga of relief. The vcnder-glrl waa in no way connected with the awful person who bad let bim into the house. "1 haven't any furniture." he said "I thought tho room would be fur nished." Oh-I do want to let lt furnished,' she told him quickly. "You see '' she added shyly, "I have been selling lots of stories lately and can afford a f-JW months at the sea. But," she sighed, "I am-a prisoner in town so long as this room, hangs on my hands." Her eyes were looking softly into Vance's own. The man wondered afterward how he refrained from telling her at their very first meeting Just how des perately he loved, her and had loved Her for three long months. He did have *'je temerity to speak quite frank ly and, looking with peculiar meaning st. her, said: "lt you will select a summer hotel near enough for a city man to run down to each week-end I will take this room and consider myself a most lucky person." The wonaer-girl tried not to admit the meaning In hts look, but a soft color' creeping into her cheeks told Vanee that she quite understood the situation. He smiled and the girl caught the smile and responded. ''My landlady ls the moat awful per-, son you can imagine and I will want my tarni ture In the autumn when I return to town and you won't like so many stairs to climb and-" she would have said Blore in her nervous excite ment had Vance not laughed aloud to relieve the strain. "I can stand anything," he told her. "so long aa you permit mo your friend ship duriug tho coming summer." Vanes vatted a trifle L/eatblcasiy lor her answer. The wonder-girl hesitated but ? sec ond, then east a swift, adorable glance at him. "Only during the sumner? What about the autumn?" abe questioned. "I have a eery definite plan for the autumn." Vance informed her. "Oh!" Exp?rience will nr-ver open a cor? reap^adenca school. PROFESSIONAL CARDS I DR. J. E. WATSON General Practice Office in Llgon & Ledbetter Building. North Main Streot.
