"Is there anything in my box. 61?" and Helen leaned across the desk eagerly. The mall had just been sorted and placed In the boxes and her weekly letter from her mother was late. "Yes. Mrs. Curtis." said the clerk, handing a letter over the exchange which Helen seized eagerly. It bore the familiar postmark and Helen de cided to go upstairs to her room, where she could be alone to read tt. In the elevator she encountered Mrs. Raymond, who looked at her with an injured expression on her face. "Where have you been keeping yourself lately. Mrs. Curtis?" she said, tapping Helen playfully on the arm. "I said to Mr. Raymond only yester day that we rarely see anything of you since the accident. How nice for you that Mrs. Benbrook has been making things so pleasant lately!"—this last with a catty look to see how Helen WHS taking things; but Helen only smiled serenely. She realized that Mrs. Renbrook and some of her friends had been very nice to her lately, and that the fact had seemed to worry Mrs. Raymond greatly, although she and Warren had fought shy of the Raymonds from the beginning of their stay. "This Is my floor, bye, bye," and Mrs. Raymond stepped out of the ele vator nonchalantly humming a little tune. Helen stepped off at the third floor and a few minutes later was tear ing open her letter. It seemed as though she could hardly wait to hear about Winifred. "Dear Helen—Tour father and I feel that we should write and tell you something that has worried us for some time. I have purposely avoided speaking of it in my letters for fear of worrying you unnecessarily, but after all, dear child. I think you ought to know. I shall come right to the point and tell you that Winifred is not so well as we would like to have her. An Operation Nwessary for Little Winifred "For some time we believed that nothing was wrong that would not dis appear with local treatment, but of late she has been so listless we thought it necessary to have a consultation on her case. Dr. Roberts had a city doc tor down and they have decided that a slight operation must take place. "Now, my dear, don't worry about this, because there is nothing very serious the matter with Winifred nothing but what plenty of children have to go through at her age. I am sure that she will be much stronger in every way after it is all over. I have noticed that she has not been breath ing properly and suspected that she had an obstruction of some kind in her nose. lam telling you this so that you will realize that there Is nothing to worry about. "The question is. do you want the operation performed out here or would you rather take Winifred back to tho city with you ? It won't be necessary for you and Warren to hurry your vacation at all. Just come out when you had planned to come, only I want to know how matters stand before you arrive. With love, as ever, "MOTHER." Helen looked up from the letter with every bit of color gone from her face. Not worry? Of course she would worry, how could she help it? This was her punishment for leaving Winifred out West when she should have been at home her parents, only Warren would never see It that way. Only this morning he had been trying to persuade Helen to stay up at the Bluffs for a couple of weeks without him. "What's the use of your coming back to the heat of the city just be cause I have to?" he argued. She Fears That Warren Will Offer Objections But Helen had never been away without Warren in the whole course of their lives together, and she had : laughed at him for suggesting such a tiling. Now she wondered what he 1 would do about Winifred. Of course i he would scoff at the idea of her wor rying about things. And he would 1 never in the world consent to leave for Missouri immediately: that she knew. Clearly there would be no pleasure left for Helen for the rest of the time she must spend in Pine Bluffs, and even the slight relief that she might Clls REPORTS CLOSE CO-OPERATION Individuals and Private Institu tions Join Association in Charitable Work Only sixty-one cases were handled during August by the Associated Charities, according to the monthly report.

Frick Co.'s Plant Working Full Time at Waynesboro Special to The Telegraph Wayneshoro. Pa., Sept. 11.—Whilst there has been somp falling off In the number of operations at a couple of Waynesboro's industries, due to the cuting off of their foreign trade by the European war, no such conditions of depression exist at the Frick Com pany's giant plant. So much im proved arc the conditions of trade with the Trick Company that it has ! been decided to increase'the time from j live and a half days to six days a week. I with a total of fiftv-ninc hours in all i the departments. gain by writing her mother and tell ing her what ought to be done would have to be postponed .until Warren came in. That might not be until dinner time, she reflected, for Warren had gone sailing and might be out all afternoon. What could she do? She would write to her mother anyway and not wait for Warren—that would be the only thing to ease her mind at all. And taking some writing paper out of her portfolio she hastily began a letter to her mother. "Dear Mother—Your letter regard ing Winifred has driven me almost wild. I know you told me not to worry ,but how can I do anything else? The thought of Winifred hav ing anything the matter with her would worry me, and when I think of even a minor operation I can hardly bear It. It seems almost like a judg ment upon us for leaving her with you for so long a time, but even now Warren cannot agree with me that we should have had her home long ago. He argues entirely from the point that she is so much better off where she is than she would be in the city. "Of course, you know I can decide nothing until Warren comes In. He has gone sailing and will be out all the afternoon, but I felt that I must write you anyway. It may be best to have the operation performed out there if the surgeon is competent, but of course that means that I must stay there with Winifred until she is well enough to travel, for Warren could never spare so much time away from business. As soon as he cornea In I shall write Immediately and advise you. I shall send this special so you will know the other letter is follow ing rapidly upon its heels. I needn't tell you that my whole heart is with you, mother, if anything should hap pen to Winifred, but then nothing could happen—l won't think of such a thing. Lovingly. HELEN." Going down in the elevator Helen thought bitterly of the happy thoughts she had had just a short time ago going up. Helen Sends a letter Off by Special "I want to send off a special letter," she said to the clerk at the exchange. "Perhaps one of the boys could take it down to the post office for me—it's very important." "Certainly, Mrs. Curtis; 'perhaps you can make the afternoon boat," and ■ Helen had at least the satisfac tion of knowing: that her letter was off. If Warren would only come home early. "When Mr. Curtis comes in will you tell him to come upstairs immedi ately?" The clerk nodded sympa thetically. "I have had bad news from home," she added, as an afterthought, thinking that perhaps it would help him to remember to tell Warren. Then she went back to her room to watt. It seemed hours before she heard Warren's step in the hall, when in reality it had only been a little more than an hour since she had mailed her letter. Then Warren came into the room and she sprang up to meet htm. "Oh. Warren. I have had another letter from mother about Winifred. The doctor thinks there should be an operation immediatley." "Operation, what for? Here, give me the letter." And Warren took the letter from Helen's hand and skimmed over it rapidly. "Adenoids? Well, all children have adenoids nowadays; what are you worrying about, anyway? I thought .something terrible had happened." "But. dear, she is so young, and it seems so terrlhle to have her so far away from us when she is sick. Oh, Warren, when can we leave, and do you think we ought to have the op eration performed out there or at home?" Helen was almost crying. "We'll go out just when we planned we would, the first of September, and she can have it done right In New York. An operation for adenoids doesn't amount to anything at all, kitten. I'll given you my word there isn't a thing to worry about." And Warren with unexpected ten derness bent down to kiss Helen re assuringly. r A further incident In this absorb ing series will appear soon.] WIT/ WORDY?
