"When a Girl "
Br ANN LISLE!
A New, Romantic Serial Dealing With tl.e Absorbing
Problem of a Girl Wife
BY "ANNE LISLE
CHAPTER CCCLXXX
When Lane and I returned from
3eeing Uncle Ned start oft on the
tirst stage of the journey, that
wouldn't end until he reached hU
old home, I was a thoroughly un
comfortable young woman. There
seemed no chance that my inter
view with Lane Cosby could bo
anything short of a miserable af
fair.
As Lane stood aside at the living
room door, waiting for me to pre
cede him. I started to slink in. Then
1 looked up and caught a good view
of his face. Not only was it gray
with misery, but it had an 111-at
case, awkward expression. There
was pleading in his eyes. Lane
dttaded our interview as much as 1
did. Why, then, did he insist upon
lt? . , .
"I've always liked you, Anne,
he legan. throwing back his head
jerkily and pulling his collar away
from his throat as if it were chok
ing him.
Something in that eternal ges
ture restored some of my poise. I
smiled and waited for Lane to go
on.
"You know I've always liked you,
don't you?" he insisted.
"I thought you did."
"In fact, we four are good
friends. Always were, always will
be," he said ingenuously, as if no
more than half sure I wouldn't
question him.
"I hope so," 1 replied gravely.
"And now—you've changed your
mind?"
I've never heard a question more
tensely put Nor have 1 often seen
anything to equal the relief on his
face when I replied:
"Not I. I don't think friendships

ought to bo snipped off as if you
were cutting a thread."
"You feel just the same as ever?"
ho asked eagerly, searching my face
for a suggestion, a breath of sus
picion that I knew of any reason
why I shouldn't feel Just the same
as ever.
I avoided a direct answer, reply
ing truthfully enough:
"I thought there couldn't bo any
question of my feelings. 1 wanted
to be all a friend should be. 1 tried.
It wasn't—welcome.
"Now we're getting to the point."
Lane's oyes held a look of trying
to bore into my mind. I didn't know
If this was because he knew every
thing and wanted to find out how
mudh actual knowledge I had, or If
it was because he wanted to add
my Information to his. But in the
next minute I saw that whatever
he knew or didn't know, he would
not stoop to getting one smallest
piece of evidence from me. Lf Val
hadn't given him her entire con
fidence he was clearly enough not
going to piece out what she'd told
him with anything I could say. If
she had a sad confession to make
and had made it fully, it was clear
that he had forgiven fully, too. I
wondered what other man on earth
could accept so much and in just
that large, kind way.
"Now we're getting to the point,"
repeated Lane, and went on: "You
mustn't hold anything against a
poor, sick girl, who has been
through a dreadful experience and
had her nerves busted up like
shrapnel. If she hurt you, you'll
forgive her, won't you?"
"I have already," I replied and
then added with a smallness I
hadn't intended my words to con
vey: "But I can't force myself
where I'm not wanted."
Lane took that kindly and made
it less petty by changing it to an
acquiescence with something I re
gretted. instead of an acceptance of
something that relieved me.
"It isn't that she doesn't want
you. You know how sick folks turn
against their best friends, against
the folks they love best in all the
world sometimes. It's just the fancy
of a little girl who's been —mighty
close to the end. She's looked Death
in the face. And she's all in. Got
to humor her. But you can't hold
anything against her, can you?"
"I don't. Indeed I don't. And if
I'd been small enough not to see,
your coming has made everything
clear. I want you to know that,
Lane."
"Thank you. Princess. Then that's
all right. And this litle good-hy
of ours isn't going to be_ marred by
anything. For this is good-by be
tween us."
Awkwardly Lane patted me on
the back, and there was tender
ness in the pleading touch of the
big brown bear.

"Yes," I said quietly, taking the
hint. "I'll say good-by now, for I'm

He gripped both my hands in his
great brown paws. And there were
tea'rs in his eyes as he bent his head

FOR "ol| FOLKS"
Tanlac Is the Medicine for
Those Traveling Down
Hill of Life.
8o many of us have been looking
for something to give our "Old
Folks" that will be all for their
good and in no way harmful.
"That something has been found.
It is Tanlac —nature's greatest boon
to those passing down the hill of
life," said the Tanlac Man. "That is
why it is so simply self-destruction
to let debility sap away your com
fort and health. 'ln time debility
wears its victim away as it gathers
I force and nourishes itself upon your
very life blood.
"Nervousness, headaches, depression
of spirits, lost appetite, backache,
listjessness, sleeplessness and that
run-down feeling are characteristic
symptoms of this trouble, and Tan
lac acts like magic when it brings
back restful sleep, sound digestion,
more vitality, and drives away that
detested, despondent feeling so
quickly that it actually astonishes
you." The genuine J. I. Gore Co. Tan
lac is now sold here by George's

Glaster's Diamonds

Why can Claster sell larger and finer diamonds for less money
than other dealers? Xhe answer is simple and logical—Claster sells
more diamonds—consequently buys more diamonds. Claster buys in
larger lots direct from'the importers— gets the rock bottom price—cuts
out all middlemen's profits—and sells at very low prices—you get the
benefit.
