"A reporter just telephoned and asked me how it felt lo be married to one/Judge E. C. Morgan has Tom Kevins' will, he filed It In probate court thia morning. And—” Borman ... go on." V "He left you the hulk of Ms es tate. aeveral million dollars and the controlling Interest in the Bevins Construction Company. His wife and daughter will be cared for through a trust fund." i lie paused and waited for Jddlth Do say something but the sat mute, staring Into the dames. ••Judith, ’* there was a note of Irri tation In his voice, “haven’t you any thing at all to say?” i Judith looked up, her cheeks chalk white, her eyes limpid with unshed tears —"What can 1 say?" she asked, "Aren't you surprised ~. Judith?” and now she heard suspicion In hta voice. "You didn’t know this was coin lag did yon?" "No, Norman,” she spoke with llrm honesty, then added, “at least not this way.” "You mean yon expected money?” he asked. "No. 1 really didn’t." “And under the circumstances you’ll return It to the rightful heirs,” be suggested gently. Judith looked mi her husband a forecast of pain to come In her eyes. To whom was her loyalty more Im portant. the ghost of a memory, or tkla man beside her? (•uardedly. she answered, "Nor wan. I think we ll flnd when the will Is read, that the money and the com pany stock has been left me in mist, not for my personal use.” “But of course that will be deprlv Ink Mrs. Bevins, the rightful belr. from using It as she would prefer.” Judith looked up In surprise. She startl'd fo ask If the money had not been earned ly Big Toni, then real ising he would see ooiy jlw.gtiM.cal. side of such a question, countered with: "* lei's wait end see 'or oor selves what the will contains. What else did the reporter want to know?” “A million and one things. Ho wanted to know why the old gentle man left hit fortnne to you. his stenographer. Instead of his right ful heirs . . .” “Norman," Judith jumped to her feft. “if you say ‘rightful heirs’ to in* ugaln I'll Ki-reain. As If I could help what I didn’t know was going to happen.” CHE wheeled from him and rau to ® 'he little glassed-in sun-porch and threw herself onto a wicker onurh. Hut there was no time for tears. I.tge was beside her, the telb phone In his hands. “Miss Sanford.” he said. “Hello, Jii^y.** Clla’s friendly voice came across the wire, “bate like the dickens to call you at a time like this, hut I'm determined you're go- Iny to have your say. Every biddy in :wn will be tearing your reputation to shreds by nightfall and .. well, how ahout It child, what spell did you cast over Big Tern to have him leave you live million?” “Five million?" nuesilaned Judith, rhea. “Clla, I aweer l didn't know •wydim* a lain t Ml. but* frtvftee, sty for me that I'm hoping Mr. Bering* heirs will withhold judgment until the will Is read.

It has been Uft for me to carry out tome busi ness for him. and not for my per* sonat use.” There was silence at the other end of the wire. Judith beard dim noises.

Kiddle, It looks to me like you’re in for a tough time. I’ll pull what wires I can to see you get a decent break. Most of the boys know you and they’ll play fair. “The Union, however, may take Lampere’s word that you’re the orig inal office vampire ... gosh, Jude, If you weren’t so good looking, this would blow over in no time ... but print your picture alongside of a story Hke that and nobody but your friends will believe Big Tom left his money for business only. Call me if I can help you, I’ll keep you in touch with any fresh dust Lampere raises." “Judy.” Norman stood on the threshold, looking down on her. "Honey, I’m sorry. I know you can’t help what has happened. Even if it Is irregular for a man to leave his fortune to a stenographer, 1 don’t know what made me talk like that to you." Judith stretched peach clad arms toward her husband and pulled him down beside her "probably be cause 1 was a stenographer ... that seems to be the chief bone of con tention according to Clia . . . but more probably Norm, because you haven't had any sleep. It must have been a strain at the Bevins, then having Clia send for both you and Doctor Kelly.” Norman gave a wan chuckle— "Mathile was actually angry. Said one might think he was your father instead of hers.” “He was almost that, Norman. He’d have taken me into his home if Mrs. Bevins hadn’t balked him, not that 1 wanted to live within a hun dred mlies of her. but be was a darling. You had to work with him day after day to reai’.y appreciate him. ’Walt until his funeral and you’ll understand. His ‘poortings,’ the people he quietly helped, will be there.” THE funeral was an ordeal. Ma thlle had insisted Forman be suited with the mourners. Norman bad quietly refused unless Judith were invited and Mathile had yield ei' with characteristic ungracious ness. "I’m sorry, Judy,” he apologized when asking her to overlook Ma thlte’s attitude. "1 wouldn't ask you to do It. but considering bow close our two families have been, and that I’m the only mao left In the two, I could hardly desert them at a time like this. You won’t mind, will you?" Judith didn't mind where she sat. Namb with sincere grief she scarce ly realized Mathlle was only kept from edging her away from Norman by lila firm grip on her arm and hts mother's, leaving the two Bevins wo men to Morton Lampere, who had graciously Offered his servlcea. Judith surveyed the great floral' display with awe. She had known Tom tevine admired, beloved . . hut this, and then tier quick eyes took note of nosegays of wild (low ers, withered, tied with shabby bits of ribbon. An understanding attend ant had tucked these In among the gorgeous blossoms which blanketed the rest. Big Tom would have pre ferred these gifts of bis poorllngs. There were photographers pres ent is the Imposing cortege made Its way through the city streets, kindly for the most part, gracious and thoughtful with the exception of one. The following day Judith found the Union with a blurred pic ture of herself. Mathlle and a hazy Norman, under a caption— “ Millionaire Stenographer and Be- ; reared Daughter Mourn Together as Frelwde to Will Fight." Judith wondered where they bad obtained Information that there was ; to be a light or quarrel of any klrd.

FOR CITY CHAMPION. l SHIP RUN-OFF i (By ARMY SCRIBE) The tennis team representing j the Army is now becoming an ag gregation worth while talking about. The boys have demon strated on many occasions that they are top-notchers, and feel ; very confident that when the city 1 championship is run off that they I will be in the top of the fight. The two outstanding members | of the team are Private Christie, i who was runner-up in the tourna ment held in foreign service, and Jones, another private, who is considered the best in the Army. He is a southpaw and has an aw ful hard driving service. These two bays have already defeated the strong Coast Guard team in seven matches. It appears that Jones has a slight edge over Christie, but the difference, even at that, does not amount to much. Any teams desiring practice | matches can be accommodated by getting in touch with Private | Christie. RELIEF PLAYERS j DEFEAT SOLDIERS Yesterday afternoon at the army ■ barracks the crew of the Wreck -1 ing Tug Relief, silenced the big ! guns of the Army by defeating 1 their diamonrfball team. The score ! was 6 to 4. This is the fifth game in a row taken by the sailors. Battery for I the Relief was Lunn and Goeh ring, and for the army, Nodine, Powel! and Johnson. After this game another was started which was called in the first half of the fifth frame when the sailors pushed over two runs with none out, and down came the rain. i IF= PUZZLE YOU Let These MERCHANTS Help SOLVE Them ) BAKERY 1 PASTRIES Try our pie for dessert to night.
