A Waiting Game By ALVAH JORDAN GARTH i (Co&xtlfht. lll, by tha Wttrn Nw pupar Union.) It was his first law case; It prom ised lengthy and strenuous difficulties; the fee In nny case must be contln gent, for his clients had no money. For nil that Rodney Wallls undertook even to advance tho costs, willing, ambitious and hopeful at the outset of his profes sional career. Old Judge Mnrtell, who lmd been gunrdlnn nnd preceptor through his two years' study, shook his head slow ly and dubiously when Wallls told hltn of his decision. "You've got only about $500 to carry yon through tho next six months," he snld, "and unless you get some other business whero nre you"? Your clients are poor as church mice, tho other side has money to burn. If lt wasn't for the costs, which nro bound to quickly dissipate your little capital, I might say tako a try. I plainly see, however, that you stand a chance of starving to death beforo the matter Is decided," "Rut my clients are In the right, Judge," declared Rodney with tho em phasis of conviction nnd enthusiasm. You don't quite understand, I think. Sooner or later, rich, selfish, cruel old Jacob Lusk will be compelled to award them their just dues. Then, again, this poor girl, Elllco Vane, nnd her mother strongly appeal to mo In their utter helplessness. I don't llko to go adverse to your opinion, but I nm will ing to mako considerable personal sac rifices to help thsra to their rights." It was By no means a complex: affair. Clearly lt had been tho purpose of tho Wharton cstnto to glvo to tho Vanes a largo share of the fortune, which was placed under control of Jacob Lusk, The latter refused to construe lt that way. Technically, he Insisted, they could lay claim only to a residuary In terest. He declined to consider com promise or settlement, believing that expensive litigation would soon wear Itself out. Rnroly had the young lawyer met so winning nnd nppcnllng a being as El llco Vane. It wus by mere accident that she and her mother hnd come Into his offlce ono day. Tholr Ingenuous truthfulness nnd their direful poverty Interested Wallls, nnd acting upon a generous Impulse, accentuated by tho eurnest, anxious eyes of the beautiful girl claimant, he promised to secure herself and her mother their rights If lt wus at all possible. It took only a brief period to retillze that Jacob Lusk was Intent on playing a waiting game. Hv.ery crook and turn of the case was utilized and perverted to delay action. Somewhat down hearted, at the end of CO days Wallls made a cnll at the humble home of tho Vanes to ndvlse them 6f tho dllnfory tvi rtlt rwl c3 t tli nfi nnnAnnhf n till Mm fear that It might bo n year or longer before the case was heurtl. Mrs. Vance ! looked hopeless, KlUce sighed, but was patient. There was a certain compen sation for his expenditure and loss of time on tho part of Wallls In having tho conlldenco nnd compunlonshlp of his clients. Already the notion had more than half depleted his little capl tal. Ho had begun to economlzo close ly. Ho hid his true flnnnclnl condition from these friends, secured somo copy ing that kept him up half the night, nnd nt the end of a few more mouths arrived at a point where ho hnd not only exhausted nil his original capital, but was In debt besides. There followed a period during which Rodney Wallls passed through deep and troubled waters. On account of his shabby attire, Instead of those former cherished calls, ho advised them by letter of tho progress of the case. On ninny occasions. ho went to bed cheerless, cold nnd hungry. Ho grew thin, pallid and forlorn looking. Ono day a spell of weakness overcame him nnd he had to sit down on a door step and rest. That night ho retired with a burning fever. Tho following morning he was delirious. Ho was in arrears with room rent to his landlady, who sent' him to a public hospital. Ho was not aware of lt then, but for three weeks he wns consumed by a serious Illness and helpless as a child. He wns conscious that two persons sat by his cot In the half darkened room as ho aroused to full sensibility. A firm hand grasped his own, but with gentlo fervor. His blurred vision made out the Judge. "Just as wo hoped and prayed for, dear boy I" spoke his visitor heartily, "When tho nurse says you. aro strong enough to henr It we havo a long story to tell you." "We?" repeated Rodney In weak bo wllderment, nnd strained his glance to mako out another form Just beyond the Judge. "Yes, Miss Vane and myself." Judgo Martell drew aside nnd tho eyes of tho Invalid glistened us he mado out LI lice Vnne. He noted that her attlro wns chunged, giving her a certain ele gance. Ho quickly traced an expres sion of gludness In her fair face, min gled with an nxlety that related solely to himself. "I must tell him!" breathed Etllce. "It will give him now heart ot hopo, Oh, Mr. Wallls! Your case Is settled. Mr. Lusk died unexpectedly, and all of tho estate goes to my mother nnd myself." She hud taken his wasted hand In her own. She did not relenso lt, oven when with a rare smile of gladness and content Rodney lapsed Into brief un consciousness, overcome by the an nouncement and reading In the glow ing eyes of his beautiful client the rapture of dawning love. FIRST CALL WAS FOR SQkP I Nothing Germans at Coblenz Would Not Do for That Article ' Pepper Came Next ' German supptlcs were getting rather Rhort when tho American army of oc cupation moved across tho Rhine at Cobtehz. The population wns eating a tough black bread which was nothing more than a bran mnsh, wearing paper clothes, nnd going virtually unwashed, as they hnd no sonp. There Is almost nothing the Ger mans won't do for n piece of Ameri can soap. The washwomen will dnrn Impossible holes In the doughboy's socks, mend his trousers, scrub hl legglns, and wotdd smnd guard In his place If assured they will bo rewarded with a portion of this delicacy. Soap takes tho preference over cigarettes, chocolates or chewing gum. The Germans hnve nn Imitation soajv they provldt? for tho populace. It looks like soap and makes a rlch-nppenrln'g lnther, but It Isn't soap. It doesn't do the work. You might as well try to shavo with the foam from their bad tasting beer ns that sonp. Having no oils or fats In It, lt Is plain camou flage. Another thing the Germans are shy on Is pepper. A person who has al ways hnd pepper might glvo lt Uttio , thought and It probably would be tho last thing Included In nn "Iron ration," but go without pepper three years' and you'll begin to think that lt Is the staff of llfo. Sonp and pepper are to the Germans what pie and Ico cream and going homo are to the American doughboys. Tho Splker of April, published In France by the United States Array Railway Engineers. MARY HAD NOT FORGOTTEN Movie Actress Tells Why 8he Long Has Had Grudge Against ' Robert Hllllard. Robert Hllllard, actor, and best dressed mnn In Now York theatrical circles, was Introduced to Mary Plck ford recently. As thoy shook hands he smiled and said: "My dear Miss PIckford, I havoi wanted to meet you for'n long time. This Is n pleasure, I assure you." "Thank you, Mr. Hllllard," replied the movie nctress, "but I must say. your memory for faces Isn't very good." "Why?" ho asked. "Some twenty years ago, when you were playing In 'The Littlest Girl,' In Toronto, you needed a child to be tho girl. My mother offered my services. I wns little Gladys Smith then. You looked me over and told me to go homo and wash my hands." "No, nol" replied tho horrified Hll llard. "I couldn't have said that;" ' "But yoii did." persisted Miss Pick ford ; "hut I told you my hands weren't dirty they were chnpped. You finally gave me the Job. but I took a dlsllko to you Just the same." "You did! Why?" "Because," concluded Miss PIckford, "you made me go home nnd wash my hands, anyway, and I detested soap nnd water In those days." "Well, I declnre!" said Mr. Illlllnrd, as ho arranged his bontonnalrc. Re hoboth Herald. Explained. ,y She was weeping bitter tears Into h:r afternoon tea.
