And as I tried to push suspicion away there swept over me a perfect tornado of fury at this man who was trying to win me by making mo doubt my Jim. And then came hysteria—wild laughter. But at last I managed to get myself under control, and, fixing my eyes on Tom Mason with wfjat I felt must be a gaze of cold scorn, I said, curtly: "Will you please go at once?" "I can't," he muttered. Then his tone changed to one of actual plead; ing. "Listen, Mrs. Jimmies I've boen mad. I've always liked you too well, perhaps. And to-night I had a drink or two more than I could carry. When I saw Jim rush ing out without waiting for y.ou, something broke loose in my veins. But It's under control now. I'll never again offend" On the word, he flung across the room to the carved chest. Suddenly there was a sliding, grating sound —then a thud. He turned, flushed with' triumph: "Those were the koys—the dupli cate keys," he said. "You see, you'll never have to be afraid again. I hid them in the secret confpnrtmeru of the chest, whore even you coußln't get them nnd gfve them to me—if you relented." "Will you get out of here?" I cried. "Hello, what's this?" cried Jim's voice from the doorway. I had been so distraught that I hadn't even heard him come in. But now I turned, and holding out my arms, wearily groped my way across tho room and clung to Htm. shaken with dry sobs. "What's this? What's this?" cried Jim again. "Maybe you're sane enough to clear things up for me, Tom. I leave my deserted home at 9.30 and come back* an hour later to find my wife entertaining the landlord, and either bored or fright ened to tears. Have you come to eject us?" I lifted my tear-stained face from Jim's shoulder. "Is it only half-past ten?" I ask, ed "I thought it was long past midnight—it seemed hours I've been waiting for you to come home." Then Tom Mnson interrupted, tak ing his bantering tone from Jim's: "Well, Jim—perhaps I'd better do a little explaining. There's a blue robe over in that chest that I told Mrs. Harrison she could use when ever she liked. But to-night there's a midnight Artists' Ball, and I wanted the robe for a friend to wear. I 'phoned a couple of times —nobody home. So I decided to come over and get the robe." "That's not so!" 1 cried shrilly. Jim drew me closer, and laid his hand across my mouth. "Go on, Mason," he said, "Anne Garments of Quality Bringing Up Father Copyright, 1918, International News Service -*- -*- By McManus didn't realize what she was saying." "Mrs. Harrison was frightened to find me here when she came in. And displeased. She had come to think of that robe as hers," con tinued Tom Mason, smoothly. There was a foolish little scene—and I resorted to flattery and laid on the compliments a bit thick, 1 dare say. But surely y6u know your child hood playmate well enough, and your wife, too - so that you must understand I didn't dream Mrs. Har rison would take my nonsense seriously. You can't think I meant to —affront her?" "Of course, old man, I'm sorry there's been a misunderstanding," agreed Jim, suavely. "The little girl's tired. Her first day of can tcening did her up. Will you mind taking the costume for the Artists' Ball and running along. Tommy?" "Oh. I couldn't take it now." pro tested Tom Mason. I backed out of Jim's arms and turned to blaze out at both of the men: "I am tired and I'm hysterical, too —but It's not from the canteen. It's from the impudonce—and lies of Tom Mason. Now you take your blue robe and get out of here." ' "Anne!" protested Jim. "Anne!" Tom Mason turned to him with a shrug: "You see she is hysterical. Something must have happened be fore she got here. Those canteens close at eight and It was ten when our encounter began. Sorry for the misunderstanding, Jim. If there's anything I can do?" "Nothing, Tom. Nothing. Anne will be herself in the morning—and as sorry as we are for this—shall we call it a comedy of errors?" Then Tom Mason said good night | as calmly as if his tissues of lies had been true, and left me alone with Jim. "And now," demanded Jim cold ly, "I'd be glad to hear the true story of this evening's—adven tures." To Bo Continued.

But Mildred welcomed eagerly the opportunity to entertain with Mrs. Higgins out of the way. Hon ora had suggested that Arthur dine here in pursuance of her determi nation to throw the two young peo ple together as much as possible. Since Arthur and Mildred were des tined to become engaged, Honora wanted the thing accomplished soon. In the buck of her mind was a de- | sire to have the betrothal a settled \ fact before she herself could have an opportunity to weaken in her decision to crush her own feelings. If Miss Parson could have made the fourth member of the party, that would have given Mildred and Arthur a chance to talk together. When Mildred vetoed this plan, Honora had caught at the idea of pleasing Arthur's parents by asking them to dine with their son in the Brent home. Honora was disappointed at Mil- 1 dred's insistence that Tom Chand ler make the sixth member of the group, but, rather than fret her sister, she yielded. Upon her fell the responsibility iof arranging the dinner. Katie was an excellent maid, and well trained by Mrs. Higgins, so the task was ' not as difficult as it might have been—especially as she and Mildred agreed on most points regarding the menu. "I suppose," Mildred said tenta tively, watching the effect of her words on her sister, "that Tom Chandler always has wine with his dinner at home. He probably thinks most people do." "Thep he'll learn he's mistaken when lie comes here!" was Honora's prompt rejoinder. Mildred Again Selfish Mildred's interest in the affair centered in the two men. Honora must devote herself to Mr. and Mrs. Bruce. ' But she thought it wise to utter a little warning to the younger girl. This she did just be fore dinner. "Milly," she said gently, "remem ber that the real guests of honor to-night are Mr. and Mrs. Bruce.' Try to be deferential to them and not to do or say anything that would shock them." Milly laughed. "I'll behave my self," she promised. "But I mean to convince both Tom and Arthur that I nni a charmer, and to keep them guessing as to which one I like the best. Of course, Mrs. Bruce thinks I'm not good enough for her son. She thinks that about every girl that comes along." "Hush—sh!" Honora warned as the doorbell rang. "Hero they are now!" She had not seen Arthur since their parting on the night of the trip to Wlldwood, and during this evening Hhe did not have a moment alone with him. She was not sorry that this whs the case. She devoted herself especially to Daily Dot Puzzle '• 17 21 „• i 1K •.8 • 23 ! ls * | • 19 Zl j Z • .24 14* * 3 v • \so. • <v." I ?

In j spite of this she managed to draw : "7 r - Bruce into the conversation, until he actually believed that he ! was entertaining her. At table she succeeded in-keeping the talk fairly general, and adroitly interfered when Mildred would have , indulged in a tete-a-tete with either : of the young men. But when dinner was over and the j party went into the living room, all I Honora's efforts to rnakfe her sister ! converse with the elderly couple I were in vain. Mildred walked straight to a I couch in the bay window and mo- I tioned to Arthur to git on one side j of her and to Tom to sit on the other. An Awkward Situation Then; lowering her votce, she be- i gan to tell a story that drew from i Tom noisy outbursts of laughter, and at which Arthur smiled with amusement. Honora was perplexed. She was j too young and inexperienced to know just how to cope with this I awkward situation. Looking up. j she caught Arthur's eye and he' came quickly to her rescue. "Mother." he said, jumping up and crossing the room to where Honora and his parents sat, "why don't you ask Honora to play something? She plays awfully well, and she sings, too, you know." "Indeed I do not!" the girl pro tested. "I only play to amuse my self sometimes." "But she does sing sweetly," Mildred called from the bay win dow. "Do you, my dear?*' Mr. Bruce questioned. Then, seeing Honora's embarrassment,, he smiled. "For give me for bothering you, but I wonder if you know any of the old fashioned songs such as I like. I do not care for" rug-time." "She sings some of the old songs delightfully," Arthur declared. "Ah, please sing, my dear," Mrs. Bruce urged. Not wanting to seem discourteous, Honora compiled. She had never sung in public, and only a little now and then for her own enjoyment or to please her sister and Mrs'. Hig gins. . But her voice was sweet, if not strong, and as she sang several bal lads that Mr. Bruco had known in his youth He and his wife thought the performance charmtng.- When they arose to take their departure Mildred approached them to say good night. "I wish wc cpuld have seen more of you, Milly," Mrs. Bruce remarked. Then, potting Honora's nrm, "this dear child has given us a delightful evening." , "Mrs. Bruce is a, cat," was Mil dred's comment later to Honora. "But, any way, I had a chance to compare the two men. I like Ar thur better than Tom —as n steady diet. But I am not dropping Tom yet. Arthur's people like you better than they do nte. And I can't say that I blnme them." I To Be Continued GIRLS! MOISTENT CLOTH AND DRAW IT THROUGH HAIR It becomes beautifully soft, wavy abundant and glossy at once. Save your hair!
