independent now, and a wave of grat
itude to the far away friend he had
started in life, to be richly rewarded,
warmed his heart.
"By the way Mr. White," said the
stranger 'Aabouf this young lady
Mr. Daniels tqld me about?"
Arnold flushed up. He resented

No more long waits for pretty tele
phone operators to get you a num

imaginary wires crossed and pour

will find a way to even prevent the
eavesdroppers who now get the news
of the neighborhood on the party
