OF INTEREST TO THE WOMEN ■K ■ • ■ I A GIRL AND A MAN A New and Vital Romance of City Life by Virginia Terhune Van de Water CHAPTER XXI Copyright, 1916, Star Company. Agnes' sense of irritation against Philip Hale was not dispelled as the hours passed. She was not actually angry with him, yet she felt that he should have have enough consideration for her to protect her from such comments as his behavior toward her might cause. These thoughts were her companions while her fingers were busy with her typewriter. When she had finished the last let ter she handed it to her employer. She did not look at him, for she was painfully self-conscious since the in cident of Philip's note. "Is there anything more I can do before I leave. Mr. Hale?" she asked. "Nothing," he answered. "You may go home now. lam going myself as soon as I finish signing these." "Good-day!" she said, but he had taken up his pen again and did not reply. The outer office was deserted ex cept for one of the clerks and Joe. who were chatting together, and Phil ip Hale, who was sitting at his desk reading a newspaper. Involuntarily, Agnes walked past him lightly hoping that he would not hear her and look up. It would be awkward were he to speak to her now, just when his father might be coming out of his room. So successful was she that she crossed the open space and reached the cloak closet without his seeing her. As she pinned on her hat, she saw him rise, take up his hat and go over to Mr. Hale's office. Evidently father and son were going home to gether. Now was her opportunity to Blip away. Philip Appears Snatching up her gloves, she start ed toward the entrance, when, witn a sense of exasperation, remembered that she had left her jacket hanging in the closet. Turning, she went back for it, and as she again started across the room. Philip appeared in the door of the in ner office and stood there awaiting his father. She must not meet him, she resolved, so -would pretend not to see him. She went on buttoning her gloves, never raising her eyes. Yet, just as she reached the door, she heard a step behind her and Philip's low voice speaking her name. "Agnes!" ho murmured, peremptor ily. "I want an answer to my ques tion. May I come to-morrow night?" "Oh, Phil!" she breathed. "What will your father think? Please go back before he comes out." "Then say I may come to-morrow," he persisted. "Oh, yes!" she exclaimed, in an agony of nervousness. "What are you afraid of?" Phil began, then, as she turned away, he added—"you aren't angry with me, are you?" "Go back!" she ordered, trying to pass him. But she was too late, for at that in- ' stant Mr. Hale appeared in the door j of the office. Her worst fears were 1 15,000 GUARDSMEN ORDERED BACK First Withdrawal of Troops From Border Docs Not Affect Pennsylvania; to Make Room By Associated Press Washington, D.

MONTGOMERY f C 600—Either Phone. Third and Chestnut Streets ( THURSDAY EVENING, realized. He had seen her and his son talking together. With a gasp, she hurried out into the hall, signaled for the elevator and reached the street before she allowed herself Ume to think. Seated in the subway, she tried to review the day's happenings calmly, in the hope that, by doing this, she would be able to quiet her sense of panic. But it was in vain. She could not ignore the truth that Mr. Hale had detected her receiving a note from his son—whom he was not aware she had ever met outside his office—and that later he had come upon her talk ing in a low voice to him. And it was all because Philip was not willing to follow her instructions, to do as she had urged him to do. Well, if he did not object to get ting himself into trouble with his father, he might at least have enough consideration for her not to place her in such a position that Mr. Hale might class her with the designing girls of whom Annie Rooney had spoken so freely. If her employer suspected her of making clandestine appointments with his son, of getting clandestine com munications from him, he .would be justified in discharging her. A S»d Intuition Of course, Philip might try to make things right by telling his father the truth—and yet, unless she was mis taken, William Hale would not ap prove of his boy's friendship with a girl in her humble sphere. Since her talk with Annie she was sure of this. Had Annie not said that "the old man might raise the devil at first." She wished she had never allowed Annie to speak of the matter—and yet she had felt that nobody could ever suspect her of belonging to the class that the Irish girl had mentioned. She might have been able to forget the whole discussion but for the dreadful concatenation of circumstances. In deed. Annie would not have intro duced the subject had Philip not smiled at Agnes when she gave him a message from his father. Yes, it all came back to Philip. All this horrid mess could not have oc curred but for him; it was all unneces sary—if Phil had not been so reckless, so regardless of anpearances. Yes, she was angry with him. She was glad that she had told him he might come to see her to-morrow night. Then they could talk things out, and she would say just what she thought of his conduct. If he had at last confessed the truth to his father— She stopped herself with an impa tient movement. She had been think ing around in a circle. Moreover, she had forbidden Philip to tell his father how matters stood between them. She suddenly recollected this now. Had she not made him promise to keep silence? Then he could give the elderly man no satisfactory explana tion of his behavior. What must her employer think of her!

NO MOVE YET TO RIPRAP SLOPES Gross Hasn't Had That Talk With Seitz; No Money For Subway Despite the fact that water and weather conditions for outdoor im provement work along the River Front have never been so propitious as at present, no definite plans have been made as yet by Park Commissioner E. Z. Gross for the permanent treatment of the slopes above Hardscrabble. Whether or not Mr. Gross intends to take any steps this Fall cannot be learned until the commissioner returns to-morrow from Johnstown where he is attending the annual convention of Pennsylvania third class cities. More than a month ago Mr. Gross said he wanted to first consult with City Solicitor D. S. Seitz before he an nounced any plans. The question of whether or not a portion of the $6,000 balance in the park improvement loan fund could be applied to defray the expenses of per manent fill and riprapping along the base of the slopes had been discussed in park officialdom and it is about this, according to Mr. Gross, that he wishes to ask the solicitor. Less than $9,000 remains in the park fund, but about $2,000 will be needed to purchase the Prospect Hill Cemetery Parkway strip. The remainder could be applied to the construction of the proposed subway 'under the Philadelphia and Heading tracks which is necessary to complete the new parkway through to Derry street. The park department officials have been informed, however, that the subway will cost between $15,1>00 and $20,000 and that consequently the park fund balance of $6,000 will be useless at present unless the remainder can be found. Which means, according to the department officials, that the nec essary balance can't be provided for this year. Consequently the $6,000 balance will lie in the treasury unless put to some use. Sufficient could read ily be deducted from this balance to complete the Improvement of the River Front Park north of Hardscrabble, in the opinion of city officials. If enough money to finance the con struction of the subway can be found however, there is nothing to hinder the city from proceeding with the work. Park Commissioner Gross recently con ferred with R. Boone Abbott, superin tendent of the Philadelphia and Read ing, on the subway project. Super intendent Abbott told l Mr. Gross that so far as the railroad company is con cerned, the park department could also go ahead any time with the building of the subway. Indiana "Redheads" Mingle "Blends" at Convention ! Indianapolis, Ind., Aug. 31.—Red | hair of all descriptions, ranging from j what might be termed a light pink to deeper "fire" shades, was to be seen at Broad Ripple Park when the : first annual picnic and convention of ! Indiana "redheads" were held. Never j has so much red been seen in Broad j Ripple outside of holidays, when gaily colored bunting is hung out. "Redheads" of various States also participated. The picnic occupied , much of the time, but enough was Thin People Can Increase Weight Thin men and women who would like to increase their weight with 10 or 15 pounds of healthy "stay there" fat should try eating a little Sargol with their meals for a while and note re sults. Here is a good test worth try ing. First weigh yourself and meas ure yourself. Then take Sargol—one tablet with every meal— for two weeks. Then wei&h and measure yourself again.. It isn't a question of how you look or feel or what your friends say and think. The scales and the tape measure will tell their own story, and many thin men and women we believe can easily add from five to eight pounds in the first fourteen days by following this simple direction. And best of all, the new flesh stays put. Sargol does not of itself make fat, but mixing with your food, it aims to turn the fats, sugars and starches of what you have eaten into rich, ripe fat producing nourishment for the tissues and blood —prepare it in an easily as similated form which the blood can readily accept. Much of this nourish ment now passes from your body as waste. But Sargol works to stop the waste and do it quickly and to make the fat producing contents of the very same meals you are eating now de velop pounds and pounds of healthy flesh between your skin and bones. Sargol is safe, pleasant, efficient and inexpensive. G. A. Gorgas and other leading druggists in this vicinity sell it in large boxes—forty tablets to a package—on a guarantee of weight in crease or money back as found in each large box.—Advertisement.
