When age brings bitter memory of wild oats and the desire to become a philanthropist, you might call it his antidotage. Say it in the want a. (, 1921, by McClure Newipaper Syndicate) Kosamond was in that delightful state which is neither sleeping nor waking, unci was vaguely aware that it was morning, for the town was be coming vocal. A dim suspicion of down made the windows faintly visi ble, but it surely could not be time to get up. A wave of thankfulness swept over her at the thought that she was safe ly in her own little whlte-and-plnk bed room, and then she slipped back into dreamland and found herself milking along a brookside, a little buff spaniel running in and out of the water be side her. A rainbow arched the brook uud receded as she advanced. Sud denly she henrd an ominous growl, which resolved itself into the rumble of a passing druy. "Kalnbow in the Aornlng, sailors take warning," she repeated drowsily. She was back in dreamland, where a queer old woman sat rocking, sing ing iu a raucous voice, "John Ander son, my Jo," and as she sang she changed Into a lovely young girl with a spinning wheel, who seemed in clined to speak when Rosamond be come awnre that the hum of the wheel was really made by a street car two blocks off. She stretched lazily and smiled a lit tle, thinking sleepily of the small vhite-aml-pink room her very own room the "apple blossom room" so called because when the house was built years and years before an apple nee stood In front of the east window of the room, and in its flowering sea son filled the little room with Its t'rn- giiineo. Ah, she could smell It now, though the apple tree had long since disappeared. She began to realize that it was morning and time to wake up, and then dozed olT once more. Now she was in a sleigh rapidly approaching a vertical precipice, but on the very edge, the catastrophe was averted by Ray Bandall, irno roonly appeared" flrSO nowhere, remarking, "Dreams always go by contraries." Now she was really awake, bnt ly ing with closed eyes, trying to induce another visit from Morpheus. She was contentedly happy that she had Dimly resisted all the pressure brought to bear upon her when she refused to marry Mr. Comstock, the aged mil lionaire. At least he was aged according to her standards. She was nineteen and he was forty-four. To be sure, he was tall, erect, elegant and learned, but there were Indications of a bald spot, and he wore spectacles, the kind with big, round lenses, and he was not slim. She had always thought of him as one of her father's cronies, and th idea of marrying him made her shiver. Once more she dozed, and this time was part of a confused dream of apple blossoms and music, and Ray Randall, and then she was suddenly wide nwnke, thinking of Ray. Poor? To be sure he was. ToungT Just .twenty-four. Ambitious? Cer tainly; he already had plans about the United States senate. But she was willing to wait, willing to work, willing to efface herself, if only she might do It for Ray. In the meantime sin- had her own little whlte-and-plnk room her sanctum sanctorum her haven in nil times of stress. .Suddenly she opened her eyes and looked straight into the eyes of Mr. Burton Comstock. She was certainly in a whlte-and-plnk room, a very large and luxurious room ; a room dec orated with apple blossoms, and Mr. Comstock carried a wonderful branch of them in his hand. VMy rose of the world," he said, "a penny for your dreams; they surely must have been pleasant ones." . "Yes, Rurton. In a room like this, no other kind would be possible." "And Rosamond," continued her hus band, "didn't Rny Randall use to run around In your set? I see by the morn ing paper that he has won the elec tion ; and also his engagement to that rich widow, Mrs. Stevens. At one time I was almost jealous of htm." "And at one time," replied Rosa niond, "I almost thought I did not even like you." I Quite Correct.
