Denby, Veteran of Two Wars
Edwin Denby ought to be able to
And bis way around as secretary of
the navy. He comes of fighting blood
and has served in two wars. An
uncle was a fleet surgeon. A great
uncle commanded a mosquito fleet In
the Civil war and his father was a
colonel. The new secretary went with
the Michigan naval mliltla In 1808 and
as a gunner's mate on the Yosemlte,
was under Are at San Juan, Cuba.
In 1917 he was forty-seven years of
age. An enlisting officer of the ma
rines told him he was too old, had a
wife and would have to go In as a
private. "Beat It," he said.
Denby got into the marines
through special permission from
Washington. At Paris Island, S. C,
he did lumber shoving, concrete mix
ing and miscellaneous camp work like
any other private. But he was disap
pointed In getting overseas; his exec
utive officer hung on to hlra and made
him sergeant and morale officer, with supervision of all recruits. He came
out a major.
Denby went abroad with his father, Cleveland's minister to China. He
was graduated from the University of Michigan In 1896, and was admitted to
the Detroit bar. He went to congress In 100!) and served till 1011.

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

a spinning wheel, who seemed in

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

Now she was really awake, bnt ly

another visit from Morpheus. She

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
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."
Quite Correct.
