Qraham waved ua aside imperiously:
"Go back to the table," ahe said. "I
Will attend to this."
She sailed out of the door majestl

I cried, frantically signaling the others
to back up my efforts at straightening
out matters. I doubted the success of
my ruse, however, for felt the girl's
body shaklnc In my arms with the
sobs she was trying to suppress.
A Saving Confession.
"Leila! Sweetheart!" Underneath Its
frantic tenderness . Alfred Durkee' s
boyish voice held a note I bad never
heard in it before, a firm, steely in
flection which it was as welt his mother
did' not hear. "Look at me. Tou

"Look here. . forks," 'Dicky's voice
cheerily insouciant, seemed to clear tne
mental atmosphere. "Let me tell you
that you're making a mountain out of
a darned tiny molehill. The little ex
hibition that was Just staged doesn't
means that Alf's mother disapproves or
won't be simply wrapped up in Leila
when she gets over the first idea of har

thing about that idea, which makes a
prospective mother-in-law bite heles In
the atmosphere it JUBt naturally af

that the lady who now graces the head
of my table and consented to make me
the happiest man on earth "
-jie paused to make. grandiloquent
bow and throw me a kiss, while I
smiled Inwardly at his revelation which
Dicky had never made before of Mother
Graham's behavior when ' he told her
of his approaching marriage, although
i had rttesed it from Ber attitude to
ward me 4n the first months of our
marrlaKe. - ' . ....
"And .now," Dicky continued "there's
nobody like Madge on the face of the
earth for mother. Of course, she rags
hr- sometimes my mater hasn't my
beautiful disposition,!' he smiled engag
ingly, "but Madge's the white-haired
girl with mother Just the same, and I'D
wager you four cents that she's out in
the hall now reading the riot act to
Mrs. Durkee In blissful forgetfulness of
the ructions she herself raised once
upon a time. So hold up your heed,
Leila, and look pleasant,, for I'm going,
to kiss you In about fourteen seconds."
t know that he had Durnosely spun
his nonsense out in order to give thed
girl time to get herself together. That
he had succeeded I knew when I saw
her lift her head In pretty laughing
confusion at his threat, the color re
stored to cheeks, the light to her eyes.
He had succeeded In something else,
too. in softening Alfred Durkees hot
anger sgainst his mother, making him
realise that the llttfci woman's hys
teria was rooted not In dislike or dis
approval of Leila, but in her own fool
ish fondness for himself. Man-like he
took refuge in badinage.
"You'd better ask my permission
first." he growled.
"Huh!"' Dicky retorted Indignantly,
"I'll ask nobody's permission, not even
my wife's. This is my inclinable pri
vilege, eh, Leila?"
She looVed up at him gratefully as he
kissed her, while Alfred made a pre
tense of trying to keep him from giving
the caress. But when Dicky swung
around toward his friend, I saw Alfred's
hand go out to his in a clasp that 1
knew held gratitude and appreciation.
But I began to grow uneasy, for there
was no sign of the reappearance of
either Mother Graham or Mrs. Durkee.

A ghost fire is made as follows!

pan contains some four or five pounds
of aalt which has been fairly well
saturated with wood aloohoL The
party gathers around the pan,' chant

Each has been given a chestnut, and
each chestnut has been marked in
some distinguishing way. A lighted
match la thrown on the aalt, which
breaks Into a blaze that gives off an
uncanny green light. The chestnuts
are then thrown in. and the girl

This ghost, fire is a direct survival
of the earliest Druid rituals. In Soot

Its fire altera are sun touna.
Now. the Druids believed In trans
migration of souls, and on the eve of
their festival to the sun they ligntea
their fire altars to propitiate the
spirits of darkness. The custom was
kept up in parts of 1 ureal Britain
until a comparatively recent period.
None of the levity caused by the
modern ."witch fire," however, was
attached to thia observance. Instead
of chestnuts being roasted, white
stones, each previously marked with
the name of a member of the family,
were thrown Into the Halloween fire.;
Prayers were then said and the fam

To Relieve Catarrh,
And Head Noises
Persons ' suffering . from catarrhal
deafness, or who are jrrowlng bard of
hearing and 'have head noises will ba
5 lad to kpow that this distressing af
lctlon can ' usually be successfully
treated at home by-an internal medi
cine that in .many instances has ef
fected complete relief after other treat
ments have failed. Sufferers who could
scarcely hear have had their hearing
restored to such an extent that the tick
of a watch was plainly audible seven or
eight Inches away from either ear.
Therefore, if you know of someone who
is troubled with head noises or catarrhal
deafness, cut out this formula and hand
it to them and you may have been the
means of saying some- poor sufferer
perhaps from total deafness. The pre
scription can be prepared at home and
is made as follows: -
Secure from your druggist 1 oi. Par
mint (Double Strength.) Take this
home and add to it 1-4 pint of hot
water and a little granulated sugar;
stir until dissolved. Take one table
spoonful four times a day.
Parmlnt is used in this way not only
to reduce by tonic action the inflamma
tion and swelling in the Eustachian
Tubes," and thus to equalize the air
pressure on the drum, but to correct
any excess of secretions in the middle
ear, and the results it gives are nearly
always quick and effective.
Every person who has catarrh in any
form, or. distressing rumbling, hissing
sounds in their earst should give this
recipe a trial. (Adv.)
