And Miss Barnett sank gTacefully Into one of the living room chairs and looked around her admiringly. "This Is the first time I have ever seen your apartment," 9he went on, "I think it most attractive." Helen smiled. She did not know Miss Barnett very well, although she was very prominent in the works of the Current Events Club, of which Helen was a member. A call from her was very unexpected, and at the moment Helen was rather worried about Wini fred. She had just finished putting Winifred to bed and had thought she teemed feverish. Although she did not admit it to herself, however, Helen realized in a vague sort of way that she was unnecessarily particular about Winifred and thought that after all the Idea that the child was not well was probably Just Imagination. She had just finished lunch and Nora was still busy with the table when the bell had rung and Miss Bar nett had appeared. Winifred was al ready as'eep and Helen resolved to put the idea of anything being the matter out of her mind entirely. "I am glad to see you," she said cor dially. "Yes, and I suppose you are araay to know what I am after." "Can't I imagine that you have Just come to see me?" queried Helen. Miss Barnett laughed. "Of course, my dear, and it is perfectly true that I have been wanting to call on you for ever so long, but a call at this time of the afternoon would be quite too un conventional." "Well, what is the great and Im portant thing that you want to see me about? I am eaten up with curi osity really, so do tell me." Miss Barnett curled up into a more comfortable position in the big chair and looked at Helen pleadingly as though she were hardly Bure of get ting what she had come after. "Well, you have heard about the children's carnival we are going to have for the benefit of the United Aids—You remember that we dis cussed it at the last club meeting." Winifred Is Wanted to Pose at a Carnival. Helen nodded. "Well," laughing and pulling a long face, "you don't know how afraid I am to ask this, but we want little Winifred to pose as the Age of Inno cence." Miss Barnett, relieved of the request that had been on her mind, leaned back in her chair with a sigh of re lief. Helen could not help laughing at her. "Why, I haven't any objection," she said slowly. "Of course I'd have to speak to Mr. Curtis about it first, but I am almost sure that he won't object. I hope you can arrange her picture earlier in the evening than some of the others: she is so very young and ■we never allow her to be up at night." "We'll do everything in our power," said Miss Barnett, eagerly, "and you are a dear to let us have her. We are having such a terrible time getting children, really good looking ones I mean: for instance, we can't find any one to pose as The Blue Boy, and Mr. WlHetts, who has charge of the pic tures, thinks that we shouldn't miss that." Like a flash the thought of little Joan Richards came over Helen. If Laura would allow it, what a perfect ly beautiful tableau the child would make. She wondered if she ought to tell impulsive Miss Barnett about It. Since Laura had married Mr. Kichards. Helen felt almost in awe of her in regard to some things. She hardly knew what to do about It. "What are you hesitating about?" iiaid Miss Barnett, who had been watching her narrowly. "I actually believe that you have thought of some one to pose as The Blue Boy." Helen had not realized just how much her face had expressed. "I have a friend who has the most beautiful child that I ever saw out side of a story book," Bhe explained, "but I am not at all sure that I can get her for you." Miss Barnett was all excitement, hut she could not persuade Helen to tell her anything more. "It wouldn't be fair," insisted Helen, "but I promise you to do all I can for you; I will let you know just as soon as I can find out, and I hope you can have her for the Blue Boy." It wasn't until after Miss Barnett had gone, forced to be content with ■what Helen had told her, that Helen realized that Laura had not as yet re turned her call. It was foolish to (JTTLfcfl THIiNffDOLLAR^ jUwEEy Have You Ever Watched A DIAMOND It is a very fascinating process, and especially interest ing when it is your own diamond.

Of course she could tele phone Miss Barnett that she had tried and the idea was impossible but it would be a shame not to have Joan pose if there were a chance In the world to get her. The Child Calls From Her Bedroom Helen was musing on the subject and wondering whether or not to telephone Laura when Winifred called her from the bedroom and she jumped up, for the moment the subject of tableaux forgotten entirely. Winifred had Just waked up from her nap, and was still rolled up in the silk com fortable just as Helen had left her. but there were pink spots on each of her round little cheeks and her eyes were very large and bright. For a moment Helen's heart seemed to al most stop beating—she was too frightened to breathe. Then she went over to the bed and picked Winifred up In her arms. The child looked at her strangely for a moment and then smiled and pushed her hand Inside Helen's collar against her throat In a little way she had. Helen caught her up against her passionately. Was Winifred going to be sick again? Why, it was hardly any time since her operation, and she had been so careful about her ever sinoe. "I want a drink of water, mother," Winifred was saying, fretfully, "and I don't want to go out with Nora — it's cold." "Mother will cover you all up on the bed, dear," Helen crooned, "wh#e It will be nice and warm. Nora!" she called, as Nora passed the room to get dressed. "Come in here for a moment, will you? I don't think Wini fred is well enough to go out this afternoon—will you bring her a glass of water, please?" Nora came in with the water and Helen held Winifred up while she drank thirstily. "Get Mr. Curtis on the wire, and then call me. will you Nora?" and then she turned to Winifred while Nora hurried out to do as she was bid. "Mr. Curtis," Helen could hear Nora say, and the voice seemed to come from far away. Winifred had fallen Into a stupor, with her eyeß partly open and her cheeks growing hotter every minute. With a gasp of relief she hurried out to the hall to the telephone at Nora's call. "Is this you. Warren? Yes, this is Helen. Do you think you could come home early this afternoon, I am so worried about Winifred; she seems to have a high fever." Warren's voice came singing across the telephone reassuringly calm. "All right, I'll come up right away. Perhaps you'd better have a doctor in before I can get there. Sure you're not worrying unnecessarily." "Oh, no, dear; I tell you she is sick. I'll have Nora go down for Dr. Mar shall. He's right here in the house. Yes, I know you will, dear. Good by." Dr. Marshall, the calm young doctor who had the apartment on the first floor, came In Just before Warren. He examined Winifred carefully and smiled at the fear in Helen's eyes. Winifred had begun to breathe hard and the doctor lifted her up into his arms quickly and carried her out into the kitchen. "She's in for an attack of croup," he explained to Helen. "We'll steam her over the mouth of the kettle, and then I'll give you some medicine. You called me In plenty of time, so there is no danger." Helen watched him as he deftly ar ranged a tent of a blanket, and a moment later was sitting with Wini fred on his knee, the steam from the kettle pouring into the child's mouth. In the midst of it Wnrrcn came in and at the same time the telephone rang and Nora flew to answer it. Later when Winifred was in bed and the doctor had gone, and she close beside Warren on the arm of his chair was watching the child fall quietly asleep, Helen thought sudden ly of the telephone message. "It was Miss Barnett, ma'am," whispered Nora, when Helen encoun tered her in the diningroom. "I told her you'd call her up later." Helen smiled as she went back to her post. How little things like that seemed to count when the really big worries came along, she reflected. After all, God was very good to her.
