OF FRECKLES By JANE OSBORN uy, 1(10. by Moi'lui • Ntwiptpm U> mllost*.) "Bay, Freckles, who was that nice looking. round-faced young innn that spoke to you when you got off the car?" naked Laura, with ull the conde scension of an older slater who hud overheard ao frequently the remark that ahe was the beauty of the family, and that Peggy «|l Just n nice lit tle girl that ahe was beginning to be lieve 1L “Don’t call me Freckles l M anopped Peggy. «■ ahe Itnpetuoualy pulled off her Jaunty little turn o’shanter that waa a part of her skating outfit. Then ahe peered Into a handglass on her Bister's dressing table. "They really are fading. No one who hadn’t known before 1 began using that new cream would know I ever had any freckles, and It sounds Just dread fully to call a girl of my age- twenty, almost—by such a perfectly childish, silly nickname.” Then another pause. In which she studied the pleasant, wholesome fea tures in the mirror with considerable scrutiny. "tlesldes. he Isn’t round fheed. It’s quite an oral.” "Who Is he? Who Introduced you? Don’t be a dam.** "No one Introduced me. So there!” "Peggy Toting! How dare you speak to a young man you don’t know any thing aboht?" "1 do know a lot about him.” replied Peggy, who was really very eager to tell all she knew about the young man under dlacuaslon “He Is a young news paper man. I often see him He goes to work about the time I’m coming from skating, and—well It was Just a case of mutual attraction. I suppose. Td noticed him for n few days before he ever seemed to see me. Then ono day he noticed me; he seemed to be looking through to my very soul: not at all in an impertinent way. but In a searching, serious way Just that look was as good as an Introduction. When a man looks at a girl that way. ahe Just knows he’s all right. I looked up and he seemed really em barrassed He hadn’t meant to annoy me, and then, when I left the car and looked back at him to see whether he was atlll looking he raised hit hat ever ao slightly After that w# Just natu rally epoke to each other And he told me that the reason why he epoke —raised hla hat—that first time was because he thought other people had seen him looking at me and he wanted It to eeera that he really knew me. Wasn’t that thoughtful of him?” *T atn really shocked!** commented l a ora whose expression, on the con trary. showed Intense tntereet. "I sup pose I ought to speak to father." "I didn’t tell him about the way you got acquainted with Stanton Jones. Just because you had chairs besides each ether coming home from col lege." "That »»• quite different. With ItMtm it wm* a case of lore at first a’ght: and when a man loves at first sight, you don’t think he Is going to watt for an opportunity to have an tn trodvetfoa •* “Maybe It was If you could have seen the way he looked at me ’ I never Lad anyone look at tae that army be fore Of course he hasn't told me he loves me yet. though he has said he was eery very fond of me” 'Well. I think there was something very funny about It." said laura "Too mean that when a man wants to meet you the firs? time he sees you it ts perfectly natural, because you are beautiful: but that when a man feels that way aSnit me. there must be something queer—he must have been crasy or drunk or something " T didn't say that. Peggy" assured Laura ‘But tf you must know It. yea: aren't Just that type. <xre people Just aren’t, you know.

Mr. Burgess." naked Peggy, ns soon na the ten nerving formality had been gone through and Mr. Bur gens was feeling very uncomfortable with a teacup, spoon and Jam sand wich all balanced on one saucer, “Mr. Burgesa. would you any thnt I was freckled?” Tom Burgees (suddenly turned per coptlbly red. lie must have been con fused. for the teaspoon fell from hla saucer and It waa only in midair that the Jam sandwich waa saved from n almllar fate.

He wasn’t sure Just what he ought to say, so he went slowly. “I knew you didn’t think of me as being thnt type,’’ an Id Peggy trium phantly, and then he knew how the road lay. and lied valiantly. Moreover, a certain temerity came over hint. Having laid hla ten-drinking equipment on a convenient table, he put two compelling hnnda on Peggy's ahouldera and bent her head down to the light. In n way thnt for Just a mo ment filled the soul of the beautiful Laura with envy. He looked steadily Into her frank youug face, and then looking Into her two blue eyes aald: “I can’t see h single freckle." Eventually laturn withdrew from the reception room when the tea drinking formalities no longer called for her presence and Torn Burgess mnde hun rled explanations. T don't want to start out decelvlug you." he told Peggy. "It’s going to he such a wonderful thing—your friend ship—that I want It to start right. So I'll have to tell you. I Just lied to you. but It was because I didn’t think It concerned any one but ourselves, not even your sister. I said I never no ticed a single freckle, but that Isn’t Juat ao." Tom paused and took two small, firm hnnda In hla as If he needed them for reassurance, and Peggy made no effort to release them. "You see. that first day I noticed you Td started out on an assignment. 'Rtere was some row between a so ciety woman and n halr-dresser. He had guaranteed to remove all blem ishes. and he hadn’t removed the freckles, and so the question was whether freckles were blemishes. It was of no Importance, but because the woman was well known In society It gave a chjince to work It up Into a crasy sort of *to\v about what the artists and beauty experts think abont freckles I’d never noticed them, espe cially until I got an assignment Then I saw you. and—well, that Is why 1 was ao Interested Of course lately !t was Juat for you. 1 told you because I want to start right." There was a pause. “Start what?” asked Peggy, preferring not to men tion freckles farther “Start being engaged.” said Tom. simply “Are you willing?” "Yea." was Peggy’s answer and then—"but don't 'et’a tell (.aura how It bannered DIED TO ESCAPE SUFFERING Crew of Crippled Hue Submarine Took Us Eas eet Way Out of a Hope tees Situation.
