"Then you didn't get Neai's tele- ■
graml" I exclaimed, in reply to I
Father Andrew's sudden question as
a , to Neai's whereabouts.
Father shook his head. How very j
gray he had grown. How tired he!
• looked. |
"Let me make you comfortable I
over on this big couch, dear," I j
cried. "Give me your bag and over- j
coat. And as soon as I've hugged
you once or twice more, I'm going ;
to get in some scrumptuous apples j
for you—as good as we get at homo." ;
Father Andrew shook his head,
and faced me sternly. His kind ha- ,
zt'l eyes didn't twinkle now, but fo- ;
cussed on mo intently from under his j
bushy brows. His bunds were clinch- !
'ed, and it seemed that ho was exert
ing force to keep his voice from
trembling as he demanded again: ;
"Barbara Anne, where is—my i
Then I knew. He had thought j
Neal a slacker. And it was agony to ,
him. He had come across the conn-,
try to plead with his boy to bo a
man. He didn't have to tell me-*-'
'.bat I could spare him.
"Dear," I cried, glorying in the
news I had to tell, "Neal started
for camp yesterday. My husband was i
ready to help hint get into whatever
branch of the service he chose. Hut
, Is'col thought he ought to just go :
alor.g in answer to the call for his
draft number—and let his country
put him where she needed him."
Father Andrew's lip moved, but
no words came. He got to his feet,
swayed for a second —and then aI
wonderful light came into his eves.
"My boy's gone for a soldier!"
"He said it like a prayer. "And '
what do you think?" I cried, seek
ing the smile that was needed to
clear the air, "Neai's gone to the
big camp that's only a hundred miles ;
fioni home."
'"Back home!" exul'ted my dear old 1
"step"-father—the realest father a
girl ever had—"Barbara Anne, I cal- \

Wheti the influenza epidemic
struck the cou.ntry and wiped out
warehouse and jobbers' stocks al
most over night, we were faced with
the problem of distributing—to the
stricken districts —in the quickest
possible manner—our daily output of
Vapoßub. We solved this by offer
ing to ship direct to the retailers in
these in influenza districts, by parcel
post prepaid, quantities of not more
than three dozen Vapoßub in any
one shipment, and by shipping fthat
was left from our daily production
to our jobbers by express instead of
This was costly, but it solved the
problem for the time being. Now,
however, we find that these small
shipments are constantly increasing
we have received as many as
1,306 in a single mail. It is becom-

through the Jobber, and, effective im- ;

While we have put on a night
shift and have, thereby, about dou
bled our production, we are still
unable to fill our back orders and
- won't be able to give each jobb(,
all the Vapoßub he wants. Hence,.
, it will be necessary for the jobbers!
to continue distributing Vapoßub in)
[ small lots only. Rut we will be
able to furnish each jobber at least
j twice the quantity of Vapoßub that
he purchased for the corresponding
i month last year, so there should not
j be any difficulty in your getting your

We wish to express to both branches j
of the trade our thanks for the kind j

up to Father Andrew and took one |
of his big, gnarled hands in both her |
little soft ones.
"So this is Meal's dear, dear fa- '
ther," she murmured, lifting her blue
eyes wistfully and wonderiugly to the
big man who towered above her.
"I'm not Mrs. Anybody, dear 'Father
Andrew'—please, please let me ca'l
you that, it feels so cosy and homey
to know you. I'm just Evelyn Ma
son, your boy's friend, and as proud
and happy to meet you as I know you
are of that splendid soldier-boy of

Rut I wanted to taxe Evvy by
the shoulders and put her out. And
there was Jim grinning at her an
tics, and my dear old father was tak

"Anne, dear," suggested Evvy. very
gravely, "Jim's all in from his first
hard day—and I know Father An- j
drew is a bit tired from his journey.
So, while you three visit, I'll just run
out and make you all some nice hot
tea and toast.

the kitchen. I turned to Jim and i
Father Andrew.
"Isn't she a brick?" asked Jim. j
who had seated himself chummily at j
Father Andrew's side and had light- \
ed a cigar for the older man.

through clouds of smoke. #

MILDRED slammed the front
door defiantly and ran up
stairs, humming a popklar
1 song. Honora looked after her,
j started to speak, then thought bet-
J ter of it and went into the kitchen.
After all, she reflected, us she took
the dinner from the oven and put
it on the table, she would gain
nothing by complaining because
Tom Chandler had made her sister
late to a meal.
"Where is Mrs. Higgins?" Mil
dred demanded, reappearing at the
end of ten minutes,
i Honora noticed that the girl had
changed her office garb for an af
ternoon frock, and that she was
wearing her hair in a new and
striking style.
Seeming to ignore these signifi
cant indications, the older sister
told the story of the illness of Mrs.
Higgins' sister and the widow's de
parture for Hartford. Mildred's
i murmured comment. "It's too bad!"
! sounded indifferent, but Honora
fancied she detected, a note of re
| lief In the speaker's voice.
"The Bruces want us to go for a
moonlight auto-ride to-night,"
j Honora remarked as the pair sat
' down at the dinner-table. "I ac
cepted. Was that right?"
"Why"—Mllly hesitated; "I sup
: pose so —yes."
I Sh e asked no further questions,
' and sank into a silent revery. Her
| sister watched her, puzzled at her
I demeanor. At last Mildred made
j a suggestion.
"Dear," she ventured, "suppose
j you go alone with the Bruces to
j night, and count me out of the
"And leave you here all alone!"
Honora exclaimed. "I will do noth
ing of the sort."
i Mildred flushed and frowfted im
"I really think," she broke forth,
"that I might be considered old
enough to look out for myself.
Nobody is going to break into the
house and carry me ofT. For good
ness sake, Honora, don't be so ab
solutely ridiculous!"
Honora stared at her, amazed at
her impetuosity. ,
"Don't be ridiculous yourself,
Milly," she began.
"Dont call me 'Milly!'" the other
"Well, whether you are Milly or
Mildred," Honora retorted, "I'm not
going to-night unless you do.
That is certain. What under the
sun is the matter with you? Have
you another engagement?"
"Then"—Honora pursued the sub
ject stubbornly—"why don't you go
auto riding?"
"I don't feel quite like It," the
other murmured awkwardly. "I—
I—guess I am not very well."
"Don't go, then," Honora advised
quickly, trying not to show her dis
appointment. "I'll phone Arthur
after dinner and tell him to call it
off. If you are not feeling well,"
she added, suspiciously, "why did
you take the trouble to put on that
dress and fix your hair so elabo

girls rose from the table the young
er spoke impulsively, all traces of
vexation gone front her face and
. manner.
"It's too bad I wasn't nice about
the ride, Honora," she said. "It's
been hot and stuffy at the office all
day, and 1 am a hit tired. But if
. you want to go with the Bruces I'll
. go, too."
"Oh. I don't care." Honora forced
herself to speak cheerfully. "If you
don't want to go we'll stay home."
Mildred laughed nervously. "But
1 now that I come to think of it," she
declared, "I believe that I would
like the ride. It may do me good."
"Did you say the car's to be here
at eight? I'll be ready."
She watched Honora carry a tray
of soiled dishes into the kitchen,
but made no move to follow her. A
second later she tipped out into the j
Her sister, bending over the sink, |
fancied that she' heard, above the i
sound of the running water, the
clink of th e telephone bell, as
though the receiver had been lifted
off its hook. She paused for a mo
ment to listen, but hearing no
voicfc, went on with her work.
Three minutes later Mildred en
tered the kitchen. Her face was
very pink and her manner unnatu
"Here!" she exclaimed, pulling
the dish-towel from Honora's
( hands, "let me help you! I forgot
Katie was out and that you had to
( do her job."
She chatted excitedly while the
[ dishes were being washed, dried and
put on the shelves. Several times
r sh e stopped in the middle of her
task and stood listening.
The work was just completed
when the bleat of a motor horn
* "That must be the Bruces now!"
[ Mildred exclaimed, pushing her sis
ter from the kitchen and catching
'. up a cloak that she had laid on the
_ diningroom table. "Hurry upstairs
' and get ready, Honora! I'll tell
them you're coming."
tAs Honora obeyed, the younger
girl stood and watched her ascend
the stairs. Then she ran to the
' front door.
In her own room, Honora had
just removed her apron and strug
. gled into her cloak, when she heard
. the front door slam. "Why need
Mildred be in such haste to get into
\ the. car?" she wondered. Turning
, out her light, she paused to glance i
out of her window into the street '
Mildred was climbing into a low
\ slung runabout. Honora had seen
it before and recognized It as Tom

"Milly!" she called, leaning from
the window; "Milly!"

drowned h'er voice and the run
