The Children's Story —BY— The Story Lady PETER’S ROMANCE It had been decided that Aunt Grace, who had been making her two brothers a long visit, wns to go home the first of June, and Peter was to go with her. Peter was perfectly happy except for one thing. Aunt Grace was not happy at all and the lieutenant never came any more. Peter decided that even though Mr. Henshaw had stopped acting like he owned Aunt Grace, she was too proud to ask the lieutenant to come back and he was too proud to come without being ask ed. As far as Mr. Henshaw and Aunt Phoebe were concerned things were going beautifully. Hal was perfectly crazy about her and she was very sweet and motherly to him. It was easy to see that Mr. Henshaw was very much gone on her, too, but she was quite shy. All they need to get engaged, thought Peter sagely, is a right good chance, and he kept his eye peeled for that chance. —» evening Mama and Papa and EXPEXle kids, as Peter called them, *:~I for a long walk. Aunt Grace ■yori*1 the grape arbor. Peter was r on the front porch looking at the funnies in the evening paper when Aunt Phoebe came up the walk. "Sit down,” he said hospitably. "Here’s the paper and I’ll see If I can find Mama.” He ran around the back way to Mr. Henshaw’s house. Mr. Heflshaw was watering the lawn. "Hello,” called Peter, "Mama and Papa over here? Aunt Phoebe is over home and wants to see Mama.” Mr. Henshaw waited to hear no more. He departed in haste to the Palmer’s leaving the water running. Fifteen minutes later Peter peered cautiously around the corner of the porch. Mr. Henshaw and Aunt Phoe be were seated on the railing tn the darkest corner behind the red ram bler. Peter slipped into the library. “Slx-slx-nine-scven,” he told cen tral. "Hello, Lieutenant Harley? Well, this is Peter. Mr. Henshaw is kissing Aunt Phoebe on the front porch. Aunt Grace is in the arbor alone. Go to It.” The phone clicked and In about seven minutes Peter heard the purr of the lieutenant’s car. —HELEN CARPENTER MOORE.

Seal of the Comptroller of the Currency") 4693—5-22-60t Many confusions upset my nerves. I had a headache which lasted hours. I was half sick and altogether use less. It was always so, when a woman hesitates and debates about"Tier du ties. I had seen whole families sac rificed to the moods of some waver ing and confused female member who martyred herself and everybody else to her own indecision. Generally she pitied herself and demanded uni versal sympathy on account of her nerves. One fact remained on top of my swirling thoughts. I knew that by the side of every woman stalks a shadow: Her Ideal Self! The Wom an She Might Be! And I realized, soberly and sorrpw fully, that I had departed a long way from my ideal self, from the bride and wife I ought to be. I liked to think that I was direct by nature, that I moved in straight lines. But ever since I had first become en tangled in the intrigue which wrap ped Certeis like an atmosphere, I had got out of touch with my ideal self 'i had become as artificial as the warm tan .complexion I put on every morning. How I hated it, intrigue and all! There were people, Katherine Mil ler, for example, who reveled in plots and deceits and evasions. And I loathed them all, nevertheless, I was caught up in a labyrinth of conceal ments. I promised myself that when I should have won Bob back, I would throw over forever all such minor in terests as the hoard of gems hidden in the hold of the U-boat, and Chrys marriage to a possible spy. hiven the activities of the U. S.‘ secret service would not be materially hampered, I had to admit, if they lacked my co operation. I hated my painted tan complexion so much that more than once I was on the point of scrubWng it aU off and tossing my bobbed ^wakfast away, and appearing at the breakla table as myself—Plain d And I anticipated with some ae light the sensation whichmy >"eap pfarance in the flesh would cause In. the Lorimer establishment, and_ in thMore "than all. how it would aston ish Katherine Miller! But the news of my refu"e^1°'J A would reach Bob over night—ana force him into deeper confusion and darkness. I would wear that old tan . complexion forexer, if it kept By faculties alive. But for the malicious _ # interference of Katherine Miller, it might have accomplished a miracle. I hated Katherine Miller. For the first time in all my life, I learned that hate is an emotion as sharp as love itself.' „ . I didn’t talk about Katherine Mil ler, but I did confide to Chrys my dislike of a tanned skin. Chrys ibhorred it, too, except at the end of the golf season. "For goodness sake, wash that stun oft—for keeps—and before we Bo to New York,” Bhe said as she entered my dressing room the morning wo were to start cast. "But I might meet Bob! I pro tested "I hope you do! The shock might benefit him,” replied Chrys, who, as Bob’s twin, ought to have been sym pathetic, I suppose, but who, as his sister, was normally critical. ..Here—i’ji help you!" Chrys has vigorous fingers. lifer help was of a nature to remove tiny sections of my skin, but when it was done, and my face soothed with lotions, she stoop ed over me and kissed me! I promised myself I would make it pay her good dividends some day.
