Once ltuth met them out driving In Jack's little motor car, and Xatalle had blushed anil waved while Jack had looked slightly embarrassed. Xatalle was so admirably suited to Jack In every way. There was nothing very much to her. but she tried pa thetically to feel deeply over things, to understand emotions and to come up to what Helen cvprcted of her Helen was to Natalie a marvelous person, to be patterned after If possible, only It hardly seemed possible. She confided nalvelj to Uutli one morning that sho knew she could never do what Helen had done. "Why, Just think, to marry Jimmy as she did without telling her people, and to live In that dreadful little place with him. Oh, It was Just too wonderful and awful." And Ruth looking Into Natalie's cloud less blue eyes, knew that tu Natalie It had been "just too wonderful and aw ful." Natalie was a little person who hart no unsounded depths she was one of the women, an'd there were many, who would never feel the lack of Independ ence ; In fact w ho rather resented such n thing as a slur on their attractiveness. Natalie was a woman who liked being dependent, and Jack wanted Just that type of woman "I don't really think Helen minded," Ruth had remarked "Oh, of course she didn't mind, that's the beautiful part of It." Natalie has tened to say. afraid lest ltuth think her callous. "But how splendid," she of fered ji the next breath, "that she could come back home to live while Jimmy is away" She pronounced "Jimmy" wjth a faint lisp that vaguely annoyed Ruth, and yet it was Impos sible to feel annoyed with Natalie who was such a veritable Infant. Natallt's tactics with men were very pretty and all very much alike, She had a system of eye dropping and her soft cheeks would flush softly, and she would act very, very helpless, and some men seemed to like the method very much. i "When 1 looked at Natalie," Ruth con fided to Helen, "I wonder If I am get ting eld Do you ever feel that way too?" "My child, I'm married, remember," Helen returned, "and I feel as old as Methuselah when Natalie chatters to me, but I don't mind, because she's easily squelched and she's an awfully nice kid even if tlieie Isn t much to her." "She told me that she vvbb simply wild over the men In uniform; -she goes to all the dances given for them around town." Helen laughed, and then sobered quickly, "Ruth, do you think Jack s Interested?" "Yes, I think so, do you?" Helen drew a long sigh of relief, "I was so afraid you might not h sen slhle about It, Natalie Is Just the kind of a girl Jack ought to marry, a little scatterbraln whom he can bully to his heart's content, Of course.

"You did darling, tilings will come out all right for j-cu j-ct, j-ou see if they don't. Whj-, j-ou've alwaj-s been my Ideal storj- book girl, Ruth, and the story alvvajs ends right for girls who are heroines." "Not during the war, Helen; toe many girls have lost their men through cir cumstances that were never thought of before, nnd I was a dreadful little- fool. You know I don't deserve it. And then there's Myrn " It was out, that dread thought that had hern in Ruth's mind In spite of her effort to db-lodge It. "Scott wouldn't look at Myra," Helen returned nulcklj-. "Whj-, Ruth, your mind Is distorting things terribly. You are allowing yourself to imagine thfngs that .vou ordinarily knovr could never happen. Do you think Scott is going to marrj- Myra because she happens to'be on hand with a new vvaj" of fixing her hair? How slllv jou are, dear. Don't jou agree with me?" "Mj-rn loves him, and that's a great deal." Ruth persisted, "And she hasn't the slightest Idea that I care; not the slightest " "Myra may never see Scott at all," Helen returned. "Oh, yes she will, but I'm going to take jour advice, Helen, and not worrj-." Helen's words had done more tharf Ruth knew to cheer her up. The un conscious ridiculing of Ruth's attitude was the best possible thing for her con stant blooding, and for the next few daj's Ruth was happier. And then out of a dear sky something horrible hap. pened. something o totally unexpected that It struck with all Its force ono of tho llttlo group nf people that had so bravely learned Its lessons In the haid book of sacrifice, and had learned to be so proficient that no one dreamed of the secret worries, the little misgivings that occasionally came to cause unrest (Tomorrow's Installment deals with the biggest sacrifice of all.)
