tr.. Tho night waa Just suitable for

MISS AMABEL'S DESIRE
(My Bryant L. Rogers.)
>*."VJ I i>n". ?ji't. liv i". .. '..f. ?''Iure Niwrfrn
I?T Syndicate.)
"My greatest desire?" repeated Miss
Amabel Wallon. "I'm afraid all of my
Wiehes have been gratified."
Misa Walton looked dreamily at
Hie gray old college buildings wear
ing their ivy green mantles with dig
nified submission to the passing years,
and a tender anillo touched her soft
lips.
"There Is *?no unfulfilled wish that
haunta my hours," she admitted at
last.
"1 knew it," triumphed Stella,
"Do you mind telling us about it?"
asked Marlon.
"It in such a slmpln wish that you
will wonder why I havo not grati
fied it-I nm dying to wear pink
a soft rosy pink gown-there, am I
not perfectly idiotic?"
The little tencher of music at Fen
ton college looked appealingly at tho
sympathetic giriish faces of her fa
vorite pupils.
"Why don't you wear lt, then?" mar
veled Stella Maynp.
Miss Amabel Watson touched her
beautiful snowy hair. "Because it
would bo si) absurd-at my age. nut
now ? Ic.nged to wear lt when I was
a child! I lived with a malden aunt
who looked upon pink ns a frivolous
color and so it was banned from my
wardrobe. I've worn black and white
and blue and brown and lavender, but
never n blt of pink-and th?re ls my
ungratified wiBh!"
Miss Walton's soft blue eyes were
very bright when she finished and
there were two pink spots in her un
wrinkled cheeks. With ho, snow
white bair she was beautiful and the
hair which might have added weight
to her years, also lent a freshness
and bloom of a youth which waa not
very distant,
"But that is no reason why you
rhould not wear pink now, dear Misa
Walton," insisted Marion Reeves.
Do. please!"
"And you look very, very young in
deed. Won't you wear a pink frock to
the October reception?"
"Miss Walton hesitated. "1 munt
have a new frock," she admitted.
"Do lot us go to town with you and
select it,"urgod tho girls, and at last
Amabel Walton consented.
The night o' the October reception
Amabel regarded her reflection in the
mirror with mingled distrust and de
light.
In this delicate pink creation she
looked a slender, girlish figure-like
one of those DreBdon china bits on
her mantelpiece.
There was a murmur of surprise
In tho room when Amabel entered
with Stella nnd Marlon. Mademoiselle
Drouet, tho French teacher, elevated
her sandy eyebrows and whispered
Ironically to Professor Hanford.
FrofcFBor Hanford frowned, .and his
eyes followed Amabel's pink-clad
form with 5-ch a mixture of admira
tion and wistfulness in their depths
that mademoiselle turned quite yellow
with Jealousy. She swept away, and
Professor Hanford, glad of his release,
wandered aimlessly around until ho
came upo. .innhol sitting alone In the
deep bay window, a roll of music in
her hand nnd her brown eyes shining
with unshod tears.
Tho professor looked down at her
with Infinite tenderness in his eyes.
"You-you are distressed?" he asked,
shyly.
The tears fell. "I am foolish," quiv
ered Amabel. "I have worn this ridi
culous frock-"
"Ridiculous!" interrupted the pro
fessor. "It ls charming. I am won
dering why you do not wear it al
ways."
"I nm too old to wear pink!" sighed
Miss Walton, without coquetry.
"A woman ls never too old to wear
what ia so infinitely becoming," pro
tested the Greek instructor eagerly.
"It ls a pity that more women do not
understand the art of dressing be
comingly. Now, pink-pink la my fa
vorite color.
Something in his tone made Ama
bol blush.
"It ls mine, too," she Bald hurriedly.
and then she went on and told h'm
the pathetic little story of her drab
colored childhood.
When she had finished he nodded
his head aagely. "Ton are qalte right
to wear it, and I predlot Ojat it-will
always be charming upon you-lt la
the color of hope and youth. Misa Wal
ton, and even to a dry old bachelor
Uko myself lt seems to .brighten a
rather dull future; lt emboldens me to
tell you a secret-about myself-and
'my love-for you!"
' When Marlon Reeves came to And
her accompanist, there waa no mis
taking tho situation. The quiet-eyed
girl read lt in the faces of Amabel
and the professor, and a charming
smile broke the aweat gravity ot har
face.
"Can you apara her to play for me.
Professor Hanford?" abe naked.
"For only a little while." admitted
the happy mart, aa ho relinquished
Amabel's trembling little hatti. Tou
ahall be the first to hear t!*e good
newa of our engageront-and I would
never have found courage to ask her
If it had not been for the pretty rose
colored frock!"
' Blessed be pink!" laughed Merlon,
and as she went away with her ann
around Amabel Walton she smiled
ever her ahoulder at the man.

Relief Worl
London, May 20.-Tho warchomtcs
>f tho American commission f<>r thc
relier of Uolglum al Rotterdam and
various provincial centers are at last
iUfflciontly well stocked so that the
commission cnn staii'l the shock or
Interruptions in thc receipt of sup
plies without routing timi the Belgians
.viii starve over night.
One of the hardest problems with
which the commission had to deal,
was the Tact that belligerent nations
refused to permit the purchase with
in their boundaries of foodstuffs for
he lielgian sufferers, ii was conse
quently necessary to obtain all the
'ood oversea!,. It was found that if
purchases were made in the primary
:cntei.; and tho most economical
transport undertaken, lt was neces.
mry to have In transit at all times
'tiree months' food supply. The com
mission, therefore, managed to bor
row $lo,ooo,0?n teuren ?pon the
goods tn trant lt an?? mo members of
'he commission pledged ficir pcrson
il credit for the further communes
'o bring up tho stock of goods in
transit as high sometimes as $20,000,
?00. In tile carly days the commis
sion would have to send canal boats
'irst to one nart of ltelglum and then
to another where th" supplies were
within less than twerfty-fou: hours of.
.xhaustlon.
At first the commission endeavored
'.o distribute thc actual gift food con
signed to them, to the actually desti
tute persons. Within a week they
found In enormous amount of difficul
ty and confusion nrising out of this Ar
rangement because lt would be nec
essary to divide a cargo of gift flour,
'or instunce. over ?.OOO communes in
Keldun!, and at tho same time to ship
parallel witli it a large quantity or
food stuffs. consigtHtig them for thc
purposes of sale fOfrthoso who could
lay. This meant a duplication of thc
intlrc transport organization and . in
fart was quite impossible because he
?ift cargo was sufficient in size to
iistrtbute over 3,000 communes; and
'.ho next tiling the commission found
was that it was borrowing from the
gift cargoes and was loaning food
rom the sales department to tho bc
lovolent department. Tho dlrcctvbus
'.ness minds of the managers untied
'his knot by a very simple device, hy
Which they sold all of thc gift food
from thc benevolent department to
the provisioning department. Tho
bencvUtent department Instead or hav
ing foodstuffs, thus had cash la hand.
This tliey proceeded to distribute by
weekly subventions to tho communes,
ind Hie communal authorities with
this money purchase^,, their mitred
Imports from the sale:; department.
Thc result was an enormous simpli
fication in th ework and an actual
sain In efficiency, as the communes
were then able to buy precisely what
they required for each inlvidunl and
local institution.
It ls o? some Interest to follow thc'
actual course of a cargo Of foodstuffs
thrugh thu commission. Take the
Passengers Who Sailed o
week after thc slaughter of more
than 1,000 passengers nf the Cunard
liner Lusitania. They nailed, in
spite of tho advertisements hy the
c In Belgium
case of Argentine wheat. One of tho
largest firms of grain buyers in tho
Argentine undertook to make pur
chases on behalf of thc commission
without profit to themselves. Thin
grain would be purchased in one of
tho central Argentine provinces,
transported to Rue?os Aires, and a
freight paid on it, tess than the usual
rates by virtues of arrangements by
the commission with the railway com
panies ut Buenos Aires. A cargo
would bo taken up hy one of tho regu
lar steamers of the commission, in
asmuch as the commission lind ne
gotiated an arrangement with all of
the belligerent governments that
? hips flying tho commission's flag
would bo Immune from attack at nea,
they were able to charter ships and
obtain rates at loss than normal. This
cargo, in duo time arrived at Rotter
dam and was there, discharged into
lighters which are under time charter
to the commission. Those lighters
are towed down the canals from rot
terdam Into Belgium and discharged
into ono of the five milling centers in
Belgium. The flour mills in those
flvo cities arc operated on behalf of
tho commission, whereby the com
mission pgrces to pay for the labor
and actual cost of operation. Tho
Wheat is milled into 80 per cent flour
and 20 per cont brand and tho bran
ia sold to the municipal dairies, .to
feed the cattle and thereby maintain
tho cycle of milk supply for the baby
canteens. Thc flour is again loaded
Into lighters and is distributed into
provincial warehouses of thc commis
sion. From the&e warehouses it is
again distributee into 'arrondisse neht
warehouses.' The communal au.hor
Itles come to the arrondissement ware
houses for their supplies. Tho com
munes pay in cash to thc arrondisse
ment managers thc stipulated prlco
of flour, and hating removed it to thc
communal warehouses there begins
one of tho most interesting pheno
mena in the detailed measures taken
to secure absolute economy, and jus
tice in the method of distribution, In
thc cake of flour, i i tho first Instance,
tho Joint organizations required thc
commune? to secure from all of the
bakers a complete Hst of their cus
tomers. These lists were compared
with Wie communal record and a de
finite number of pensons are assigned
to each baker for him to supply with
broad. Thc baker 1B put in bond to
supply ?2.") grammes of good bread
made from no other material than
that of thc commission-(inborder to
prevent adulteration) dally to each
adult customer, and at a price flied
by the commission. For thiB purpose
he recei'-^d* daily from the 'communal
warehouse 250 grammes of flour .per
idult. The commune? sell thc flour
to the baker at tho same prlco which
t,hey pay" for it. The baker is com
pelled to Boll the bread to hin cus
tomers, for the same price that ho paya
for the flour, but, Inasmuch, as bre>d'
made from 250 grammes of flour in
creases to ?25 grammes ot bread, by
n Liner Despite Sinking of
Clonnan embassy at Washington
that thc trip was dangerous.
There waa high toneion on the
vessel before she left her pier, but
virtue of thc water incorporated in
baking, the baker thus obtains a
small margin of profit with which
to pay his workmen. Any contraven
tion by the baker of the minute rule
set down means tho punishment of
having lils list of customers assigned
to some competitor.
The same system applies to thc
handling of other materials. On thc
'>encvolent side, those who cannot af
ford to buy their bread from the bak
er or their groceries from tlurgrocer,
apply to tlie communal authorities,
andi on investigation, arc given tickets
on tho communal store. These tick
ets eua!* a certain ration per head in
eacli family per dism: The communal
store is docked -.vitli foodstuffs nartly
imported and a3 stated above, partly
purchased locally bv the communes
from tho cash partially supplied to
them by the communes.- In addition
to the handling bf the imported food
supplies tho commission now handles
a considerable amount of internal food
produce, as it has been necessary to
buy potatoes In some portions of Bel
gium and send them to other parts
aside from tho very largo quantity ol
potatoes now being Imported. The
commission recently purchased ?.000
tons of coffeo from the stores com
mandeered at Antwcjp and has re-sold
this throughtout the country.
