(Copyright, 19I&. uy \V. <;. Chapman ) Ho felt pretty gloomy all the way down to his office. Ile had begun to earn enough lncotno tho year before, as a lawyer lu the little manufactur ing town, to Justiry him In claiming Mollie, whom he had loved since he entered college, au bia wife. But the struggle waa a hard one, and ho had only just been able to keep bis home to?ether. Then, a month previously, the Adamson company had Invited several of tho town lawyers to apply for a salaried position as adviser. The choice had reaily narrowed down to two: himself and Herbert Johnson. And he knew In his heart that John son was Blated fe- the position. If mere learr ; had counted, he mlKht have got ... But thero were other qualities. Johnson was a nian nbout-town, a frequenter of the best hotel, where he dined and met people. Hut, most important of all. Johnson WQ3 acquiring a reputation as a man who took hard cases. The Adamson corporation would undoubtedly prefer a man who was wi'Jing to attempt to drive through the law, if It could be done, to a lawyer who had hits, own ridiculous scruples. "However," ho said to Mollie, "I be lieve there Is a good futuro for a law yer whose honesty will bo so generally recognized that lt will go far *.oward winning him every case In which he appears." And sho had agreed. But that did not help him toward tho $2,000 posi tion with the Adamson corporation. And that Income, In addition to his other work, loomed larger and larger as the days went by. Then he was Btunncd to receive an Invitation to call upon the corpora tion. In his boBt Bult, which Johnson would havo scorned to wear, except for gardening, perhaps, he made his way to the big factory downtown and was shown Into the room of the presi dent, George Adamson, a fussy look ing old gentleman, who bade him sit down and examined him with a very critical gase. But Mr. Adamson thawed percepti bly when his visitor answered the searching questions that he put to him. There John Smith knew that he was on safe ground. His credentials were certainly better than Jo'hnson's. and Adamson acknowledged himself as highly pleased. "Now let tis come to practical de tails." ho said. "For Instance-an old Inventor out In Dayton has n patent that we aro very anxious to secure. It is an Improved method of manu facturing gas furnaces, and If we had lt it would cut the cost of produc tion 15 per cent. The old man is a crank and has an inflated value of bis property. He won't sell for less than a million, which would mean no extra profit to us for tbseo years. Morally we are Justified in taking his patent nnd manufacturing according to its specifications, for the good of the country. It ia intolerable that one know that he could not hope to find the money to sue. Anyway, the case would run for years, and all the while we could be manufacturing. Very well! But now, suppose he moved for an Injunction to prevent us manufac turing while the suit was pending. How would you go about stopping lt?" "Pay him his million dollars or stop manufacturing," answered Smith quietly. Old Adamson glared at bim. "Yon mean?"-he bellowed. 'That I would not bo a party to such a case," answered Smith. "No doubt you con find men who would. I nm afraid I am not the man you need. Good-day, slr." And bo walked out of the office. "You'i: hoar from us tomorrow!" he hecrd the irate old man bellow after him. But the threat passed over his head. An hour later he was telling Mollie all about lt. "Dear, you did Just right." sho said. But tie saw tho tears which she vainly tried to conceal, and presently she was weeping unreservedly upon his knee. The next morning when he ft letter from the Adamson people beside his plate he remembered the presi dent's threat. He laughed scornfully as he opened it. ' What could the old man do? If he threatened him he would. promptly bring suit for dam ages, or defamation of character. He, John Smith, did not intend to a!!ow thst old ruffian to ride roughshod over him. He opened the envelope. Next mo ment he dropped the letter with a cry. "Mollie! He's offered me the Job!" he cried in exultation. Then: "But I can't take lt. dear: I wouldn't, work for such people." "Let me read it, dear,'* aald blt prac tical wife. She took up the letter and read it. Then, silently, she laid it before her husband. "Dear Slr." be reed, "We shall con sider ourselves fortunate If you will consent to act as our legsl represen I tstlvn at ? salary ot $2.000 for the . first year. It may interest you to know that of the five lawyers before whoso we placed our test question I you were the OP1? one who answered lt in a manner satisfactory to na .Our business baa always been conducted according to the best traditions of American business life, and we have use only for an honest man." "Molrte!" gasped John. "There ls room for working out my theory after all." MUS, W. A. HUDGENS. Editor Phone 87. Mrs. J. A. Cely and Mrs. W. M. Garrison of Easlcy aro vialing -Mr?. T. L t oly.

"Everybody confides In you, know ing that you will do rfghw" the .wire continues," and nearly to a man will follow you. Your note will become the text for an appeal to the world's conscience now and in years to cerne." This message was voted on and a lop ted unanimously by the camp be fore it was put on the wire. "Temper, Not IasaJ?tj." Atlanta. May 19.-"Temper, not In sanity," was the peculiar verdict brought by a jury before tho Fulton County ordinary today in the case of Mrs. N. E. Buchanan, a widow whose brother was trying to have her com mitted to the Insana asylum. Mrs. Bunchanan made ? lucid st it?? ment to the jury admitting that tho was violent and . unreasonable at times, hut declaring that her actions were tho result on ungovernable temper. Then turning a disdainful eye to ward here brother, she concluded: "You've hear/* his statement, and now you've heard from me.

(Copyright, 11U5, by \V. G. Chapman.) "Julia! Is that you, dear?" Tho Bick men stirred uneasily upon the bed, and Julia Crothers ran out to where ber younger sister, Dulcie, waited upon the ?anding. "It is terrible. I cannot stay there," she w hispered. Dulcie, who had been trembling, suddenly managed to pull herself to gether and entered the room with a firm tread. She went up to tho bed side. "Is that you, Julia?" murmured the sick man again. "Yes," answered Dulcie bravely. Two days before. Jim Rldgely, her sister's fiance, had been struck by lightning. Ills recovery, at first de spaired of, now seemed assured, but ho was blind, and thc doctors held out no hope of his regaining his sight. "The optic nerve ls paralyzed," they said. "There is the barest chance, but the cure must be a spontaneous one, and it must happen within the next two or three days. Unless by a miracle that should happen, he will be blind the rest of his life." Julia Crothers was the boll? nf the town, and Rldgely a rising young law yer. Though Julia and Dulcie were alike in speech and manner, and were often mistaken for each other, when side by side lt was plain that Dulcie was only a poor Image of Julia. She was generally considered plain: the difference, however, existed principal ly in Julia's dashing ways and Dulcie's unattractive ?nd simple ones. Poor Dulcie, whose tender heart went out to Rldgely. knew that her heartless sister would never dream of marrying a blind man. She could trace the unconscious processes la Julia's heart even now. And it seemed to her that she must do her best to shield Rldgely until he recov ered. Possibly his sight would come back to him. and then he need never k.iow that It was she, and not Julia, who bad sat at his bedside all those long hours when he- lay racked with pain and fever. "He ls sleeping," she told her sister, when at last she went out to her. "What shall I do, Dulcie?" moaned Julia. "I cannot bear to look upon Buf fering. What shall I do?" Then Dulcie told her her plan. And it worked surprisingly. A week elapsed, and at the end of that time, although the doctors announced that there was now no hope of Ridgely's ever recovering his sight, he was able to sit up. And he had not guessed that It was Dulcie who had sat by his bedside and read to him in her gentle voice. Ho had thought lt was Julia. And in the midst of the pain Dulcie felt to think of Ridgely's coming disil lusionment, there was a fierce exul tation in her heart. For Dulcie loved Rldgely. She had loved him from the beginning, and now more than ever before her heart went out to this blind man, doomed to -be dependent throughout his life upon tho help of others. Rldgely had been brought Into the' Crothers home simply because he had no one to care for him. Old Mrs. Crothers, a gentle old lady, alternately dominated and petted by Julia, bad assented to the plan with alacrity. But when she understood Julia's Inten tions she shook her head mournfully. "He thinks I am Julia, mother," Dulcie whispered to her. "I don't know how to tell him." t The old lady flared up for the first .time in many years. "If you ask me," oho said, tossing her head, "I think that Jini Is well rid of her." i "Will you tell him, motherT" asked .Dulcie, eagerly. ? "No. nfy dear. That is for you," said the old lady. ! And then, resolved tp end a situation which had become unbearable. Dulcia 'ran up the stairs and Into Jim's room. i He waa lying on the eora, locking out ;of the window with his sightless eyes. ; "Do you know, dear, that I have neither asked nor received a kiss dur ing the whole ot my Illness?" asked Jim patiently. j Dulcie blushed painfully. r- "Jim. there is something ?hat 1 must tell you," she. stammered, seat ing herself at his side. < "Is lt something terrible?" he asked gayly. "Tell nie. Julia, and let me sea .whether 1 find it aa bad as you think .'it ls." "Oh, you don't understand." the girl burst out. "And yet I don't know how you can have been so bil-so unable .to understand. I am not Julia. I am Dulcie, and Julia-Julia-oh, Jim, how can I manage to tell you that ehe doea ;not care for you any moro, and has .not been near you since the second .day of your illness? Oh, Jim, sha doesn't care for you and never did care, and it ls hard to have to tait .you, and-and-" t And Dulcie broke into a storm of passionate tears. Jim's hand fell lightly upon her own. "I knew lt was you, Dulcie," he said softly. Dulcie raised her tear-stained face 'Incredulously. "You see, dear, you only deceived .me for a few honra." he said. "You .'aaa,. Dulcie, love opens one's ears, and I have come to realise that lt is you, and not Julia, and I have dared to hone-" He drew her toward him. "To hope that you might learn to care for me, Dulcie. And I have dared to tell you, because-I have aeon yon for the past week aa clearly aa I ever saw in my life." Your Daughter's Corseting NOW decides what her figure-lines will be in the years to come!
